This week on Operation Kino, we’re finally taking the time to go over Oliver Stone’s Savages, which came out the same week as The Amazing Spider-Man and is probably three times as insane. From there we bring you a new installment of Op Kino Indie, in which Da7e talks to producer Caitlin Burns about transmedia storytelling and her project Jurassic Park Slope. But before any of that, there’s tidbits, with Da7e praising Seeking A Friend For The End Of The World, Katey wondering why everyone else doesn’t do ESPN’s awesome online streaming, and Patches talks about the new Batman comic series The Court of the Owls. We end, as always, with your lightning round answers for dessert. And no worries— David will in fact be back next week, though you’re welcome to tease him for missing two weeks in a row.
