This week on Operation Kino, it's the throwdown you've all been waiting for, as Katey and David stake out opposite sides of the debate to review 50/50, with Patches nervously occupying the middle ground between them. OK, so it's not exactly the kind of battle royale we had back in the days of X-Men: First Class and Transformers, but it's a lively conversation that leads us into our Segment Three, talking about the value of physically owning movies, and whether David's massive collection of Criterion DVDs is impressive or just a compulsion. We start, though, with a Lightning Round dedicated to cinematic phone calls, and then we move into tidbits, where Da7e runs down what's happening in fall TV, Katey wants to make sure you know about the new indie Take Shelter, David floats a possible new theory about the sinking of the Titanic, and Patches tries to recover from having just seen Kenneth Lonergan's Margaret.
Take a listen below and find your downloading options; for more from all of us, you can follow the show (@opkino), Da7e (@da7e), David (@davidehrlich or @CriterionCorner), Patches (@misterpatches) and me (@kateyrich) on Twitter.
