Movieha! - Omaha’s favorite movie podcast

Here we go again, all up in your ears with a marginally appropriate, hugely hilarious investigation of the movie world as we see it. This week we probe some number twos (as in sequels), we ponder the hipping and hopping, we gush over a certain Cabin in the Woods, we digest some Human Centipede 2, and we deliver unto you some haikus for the upcoming movies this week. How can you not listen? Hit me on the other side for the trailers that we mention!

On Your Radar: Something from Nothing: The Art of Rap

I love the rap music, I really do. But color me as shocked as anyone that Ice-T, the lover of Co-Co and the grimacer-in-chief of "Law and Order: Special Victims Unit," is the man who may have directed a definitive documentary on the subject. This looks GREAT.

Netflix Roulette: Pete Smalls is Dead

This looks a little quirky, but it features Peter Dinklage. I mean, you can't resist the Dinklage, can you?

Cutting Room for April 20

  • Usually, if I’m reaching for java at 3 pm, something in my day has gone terribly, terribly wrong, as me plus coffee equals “you’d best watch yourself, fool.” But I’m highly recommending everyone get some Hot Coffee at 3 pm on April 29 at Midtown Cinema Center (marcustheatres.com). Instead of prying your eyes open with the magic of the most addictive legal drug, this documentary will open your eyes to various components of the civil justice system that are often overlooked. The film’s title does refer to the infamous McDonald’s law suit, but the facts behind that case will probably keep those with consciences from making jokes about it in the future. A panel and Q&A session will follow the screening, which is free. I’m out of order? You’re out of order! And while you’re at it, order me a cappuccino.
  • First off, props to Film Streams (filmstreams.org) for being honored with an official legislative resolution (448, to be specific) by the Unicameral! It’s awesome that it passed despite no assurances that the art theater checks to make sure no illegal immigrants enjoy their films. Second, the theater has announced that it is lowering ticket prices to $5 general admission and $2.50 for members for the Forever Young Family and Children’s Series, which features such gems as Edward Scissorhands and The Indian in the Cupboard. They are also running the childhood-ruining Charlotte’s Web and Tim Burton’s dignity-ruining Alice in Wonderland. Head to the site for info on showtimes. Finally, on Wednesday May 16 at 7 pm, the theater will host a screening of Fritz Lang’s M, with a post-show talk by Mark Hoeger, who is a film instructor at UNO. With so many great events, everyone should pass their own resolution to attend!

Movieha! - Omaha’s favorite movie podcast

Hey there loyal listeners, welcome to another installment of the best thing you can put in your ears besides Q-tips and tongues. This week we outdo ourselves...and you can take that as a good thing or a bad thing. We discuss Mel Gibson's latest hate speech, the Muppets' next caper, a weird parody trailer, a bloody great martial arts movie, elf wang, and haikus. What are you waiting for? Listen up, and then we'll show you the trailers we mentioned.

,

On Your Radar: Detention

Honestly, the trailer's not that great. But the things I've been hearing about this one are pretty off-the-chart. So, this is more a leap of faith than a true trailer-born recommendation. Give it a watch.

Netflix Roulette: Human Centipede 2

Warning: Neither Matt nor I chose this. This was recommended to us by a listener. And we always try to keep our listeners happy. Even if it means subjecting ourselves to mouth-to-butt stuff. That's how much we love you. I'm including the trailer below. But you know what it's about. So I'm not responsible if watching it means something bad happens to you.
