Wizards, wizards, and more wizards! Yet somehow the next episode will probably have a Wizard reference. Maybe a Akibaranger farewell reference? Who knows? Join us as we discuss nearly every bit of Wizard news that hit over the course of early this week, sans a few late updates involving the characters and plot. As mentioned, we’ll discuss the comments on the latest Rider in the next show, so get your comments in via the RamBoards or Otoku’s comment system. We also discuss some S.H.Figuarts releases, some hot new Go-Busters scans, and finally a new Fourze form. There’s certainly magic in the air though. It’s very red and smells vaguely like Kiva and Hibiki together. Interesting. Super Hero Time starts now as always with Fourze, Go-Busters, and the final story relevant Akibaranger episode!
Mike and Jay hitch a ride from the worst green screen ever and discuss two more recent Hollywood flops: Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter and the brilliant Adam Sandler’s latest masterpiece, That’s My Boy.
This week on Operation Kino, we’re totally throwing you off by releasing an episode on a Tuesday! Today marks the pre-Independence Day release of The Amazing Spider-Man, so we’ve got a podcast in which we review the movie in detail, both without spoilers and then eventually with them (don’t worry, we warn you). There are no tidbits or dessert this week, but there is a “spontaneous” lightning round inspired by Katy Perry, and lots of covers of the Spider-Man theme song. Also, David is missing because, as of recording time, he hadn’t seen the movie.

I am very excited about this week’s guest, Michele, because her interview marks a further step in expanding and embracing of the ideas in my research. Michele is a male to female transsexual and in this episode she discusses her experiences and how her gaming changed throughout her own transition. - Regina and Rhonda
This week on Operation Kino we’re grabbing our bows and arrows and riding through the glen with our hair flowing in the breeze, as we review the new Pixar effort Brave. (Fair warning: our review of Brave contains some spoilers, so you might not want to listen until after you’ve seen it) From there we talk about an issue that comes up a little bit in conversations about Brave, namely whether something being relatable also makes it good. But before any of that, we have a lightning round inspired by Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter, and then tidbits, in which Da7e runs down the recent controversy about Lara Croft: Tomb Raider, David eulogizes Andrew Sarris and talks about To Rome With Love, Katey and Patches debate the merits of Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter, and Patches praises Paul Auster’s New York Trilogy. We end, as always, with your lightning round answers for dessert.
Episode 66 is a go! This week, I’m joined once again by Rick Foster. This week, we talk Diablo 3 and Max Payne 3. It’s the trilogy episode so enjoy.
Episode 67 is online! This week, I’m joined once again by Bill Meeks. In this episode, we talk about this article and that’s it. Enjoy.
This week on Operation Kino we’re taking our very hubristically named spaceship and heading off into the great beyond, as we review the new sci-fi epic Prometheus. And because this movie is so big and complicated, we devote Segment 3 to a more detailed and spoiler-filled conversation about the film and the many questions it leaves unanswered. Before any of that, though, there’s a lightning round inspired by Madagascar 3 and then tidbits, in which Da7e wants to rid the world of Fifty Shades of Grey, David breaks down the two types of mystery stories as it relates to BBC’s Sherlock, Katey likes Greta Gerwig much more than her movie Lola Versus, and Patches witnesses a group-sourced, shot-by-shot remake of Star Wars, and swears it’s actually great. We end, as always, with your lightning round answers for dessert.
