Movieha! - Omaha’s Favorite Movie Podcast

Hey folks! It's time again for you to roll around in some Movieha. I know you usually tear into this on Fridays, but I figured a Monday could only be improved by a heaping helping of Ha. We talk about the Cumberbatch, contemplate Fassbender's tool, explore what Compliance means, diss Moonrise Kingdom, resurrect our feelings for Resurrect Dead, and spew haikus. Enjoy!


 

On Your Radar: Compliance

Nobody WANTS to see a movie like this, except...it's probably really, really good. Intense, real-life human drama. I hate the thought of watching this. I cannot wait to watch this.

Netflix Roulette: Holy Rollers

People who count cards for Jesus are only slightly more fascinating to me than...nope, that's the most fascinating thing ever. Sorry. I can't wait to watch this one.

Cutting Room for July 13

  • In news cool enough to make you swoon, weak-in-the-knees or light-headed, the Omaha-based band The Faint have been announced as the curators for the 2012 Local Filmmakers Showcase to be held Oct 19-25 at Film Streams (filmstreams.org). It’s the third time around for this extravaganza, which is open to residents and natives of Nebraska, Iowa and South Dakota, a region heretofore renamed as the “Farming Filmmaking Free-some” (that may not catch on). The Faint will be selecting the works that get included in the 90-150 minute program, so if you’re looking to get your bribes in, now you know who to call.
  • The San Diego Comic Convention, which now is to comics what MTV is to music, has officially reached lunacy status: somebody died. That’s right, a wayward Twilight fan was killed while crossing the street in front of the convention. This launched a series of jokes on Twitter and around the interwebs that confused insensitivity with comedy. Combine this with vain, sexist moron Daniel Tosh’s recent stand-up incident that included humor-free rape “jokes,” and you have yet another reason why the Oscars should add comedy categories: it’s really hard to do it right.
  • Will Smith wants to direct. And he doesn’t want to direct just anything; he wants to direct and star in a movie about Cain and Abel in which Cain is a vampir-ish dude. I don’t care how good the movie is, I can only hope Smith will also rap the theme song: “Bitin’ on Your Brother.”
  • Channing Tatum wants to make a Magic Mike sequel. And he wants to make it “bigger.” This news brought to you by the Society of Jokes That Write Themselves.

Cutting Room for July 6

  • The most esteemed thespian to ever sometimes use a number as a last name, Andre Benjamin (nee Andre 3000), is starring in the Jimi Hendrix biography, All Is By My Side, which will feature zero Jimi Hendrix songs. Because no deal could be reached with those who control the rights to Hendrix’s music, the film will have him playing covers of songs by The Beatles and Muddy Waters among others. This is the equivalent to making a Marcel Marceau biopic without mime, a Jacques Cousteau movie without water or a Carlos Mencia film without stolen jokes.
  • Jealous of what its rhyming cable adversary, AMC, has been up to, A&E wants to get in on the ongoing horror series game. So they brought in “Lost” producer Carlton Cuse to head up “Bates Motel,” a show that will examine Norman Bates’ childhood when the shower-murdering of Psycho was but a glimmer in a troubled adolescent’s eye. A&E is so confident in this pitch, they aren’t even shooting a pilot; they are taking the show straight to full production. This is great news for everyone who watched Hitchcock’s masterpiece and thought “I bet Norman was so much fun growing up.”
  • The definition of what constitutes a spoiler has become a personal, nearly religious opinion, with some heathens absorbing all information without hesitation and others flinching when someone merely says the name of the film. But I think we can all agree that when a ticket taker in Seattle told someone going to see Prometheus “I have to warn you… Halfway through the movie, the main female character will perform a self-induced abortion,” it was over the line. Nevermind that said “abortion” was the removal of a squid-like alien parasite; nevermind that a “teenage ticket taker” is literally the last person capable of providing a valuable opinion. What I want to know is, if he’s so interested in his customer’s safety, did he chain himself to the entrance of That’s My Boy to prevent entry?
