Movieha! - Omaha’s Favorite Movie Podcast

Welcome to another installment of Movieha, the softest, most cuddly thing you've put in your ears since Snuggles the bear was made into Q-tips. This week, we talk up Emma Stone and terrible sequels (those are separate). We also explore the trailer for Starbuck, which has nothing to do with Cylons, geek out over Beasts of the Southern Wild, discover Visioneer, and haiku it up in this beyotch. Give it a listen...IF YOU DARE!

On Your Radar: Starbuck

Although I am sad it doesn't feature the sorta-hot, sorta-scary Katee Sackhoff, this French comedy looks to be a heartwarming good time...and inevitably will be remade by a less-talented American comedian. So enjoy it now.

Netflix Roulette: Hunter Prey

I'll admit, I picked this one at random (like we're supposed to) without realizing it's basically a fan film. Whoopsie. It's on Netflix, so it counts, but Matt is gonna be maaaaad.

Cutting Room for August 3

  • Whereas I simply come out and make feisty editorial comments about the Aurora shootings, some people—cough, Aksarben Cinema (aksarbencinema.com), cough—actually do something to directly help. The theater has begun collecting donations at the box office to be given to the Colorado Organization for Victim Assistance (coloradocrimevictims.org). Think of it like this: If you buy a ticket for The Watch and donate an equal dollar value to this charity, you will have done one good thing! Props once more to Aksarben for being a charitable leader…who doesn’t do it for the props.
  • It’s time for the third biennial Cinemateca presented at Film Streams (filmstreams.org) in collaboration with the Office of Latino/Latin American Studies (OLLAS) at UNO (unomaha.edu/ollas). For those of you who don’t know, biennial means “two ennials.” And Cinemateca is a series of 6 films that start Aug 31 and run through Oct 2. Things actually kick off at El Museo Latino (elmuseolatino.org) on Friday, Aug 24 at 7 pm with the Cinemateca 2012 Preview Party, which is a free event that includes food and salsa dancing. So you can eat salsa while you salsa. Head to any of the links above for more information.
  • It’s still early, but rumor has it that Jimmy Fallon is in strong contention to be the new host of the Oscar, bravely venturing into territory James Franco was thoroughly bored by. I kind of like Fallon and his aw-shucks laughing at himself schtick, but if I were the Academy, I’d be a-courtin’ a certain gal who used to sit at a desk with him for a co-host. A Tina Fey-Fallon reunion would be good for ratings and help remind people this was once a coveted gig and not some cosmic punishment.

Movieha! - Omaha’s Favorite Movie Podcast

NEW MOVIEHA?! I won't keep you from a discussion of the trailer for Grabbers, the Aurora shooting, Grabbers,The Dark Knight Rises, or Tyrannosaur. We talk about stuff, you listen to us talk about stuff. It's a good deal. Hit us up after you listen for a few trailers.

On Your Radar: Grabbers

I love creature features. This looks like a throwback. I like throwbacks. So long as they aren't evolutionary throwbacks. Check it out, yo. Oh, and TENTACLES AND YOU SURVIVE IF YOU DRINK!

Netflix Roulette: Visioneers

I won't say I like Zach Galifiankais, but he is magnetic. So try to resist his pull in the following:
