Movieha! - Omaha’s favorite movie podcast

Hello lovelies,

It's time once more for your weekly indulgence, as we have birthed another Movieha for you to pop in your ears. This week we hunger for blood and ice cream, ponder Harrison Ford's replication, look into some Holy Motors, don't hate Men in Black 3, take a dip with Submarine, and drop some poetic verse on your ass. All in a week's work. Listen up and then hit me on the other side for the trailers we mentioned.

On Your Radar: Holy Motors

Don't blame me for this one. My friend, Andrew, pointed out that it is getting huge raves at Cannes. Not that I understand what the Sam Hell is happening here. At best, it's good David Lynch. At worst, it's bad David Lynch. Enjoy.

Netflix Roulette: Sleep Dealer

I'm cheating. I've seen it. I kinda liked it. I wanted Matt to watch it. Keep that our secret, okay?

Cutting Room for May 25

  • It’s not a good sign when a movie gets delayed. It’s really not a good sign when the cover story is a conversion to 3D. It’s really, really not a good sign when a movie gets delayed about a month before its release after a year of marketing, including a Super Bowl ad, which I’m told can be marginally expensive. G.I. Joe: Retaliation has become G.I. Joe: Retreat, as the movie moved to March 29, 2013 from June 29 of this year. The marketing has been shockingly well received, and excitement had reached the apex of what is possible for a sequel to a bad adaptation of a cartoon with a homoerotic character named Shipwreck. Don’t worry though, Seth McFarlane’s dirty teddy bear movie with Mark Wahlberg and Mila Kunis, Ted, has seized the opportunity to slide into the vacancy. We lose The Rock, but we gain an f-bomb dropping stuffed animal. I don’t know the exchange rate, but this seems fair.
  • Gary Oldman will go from Batmania to Robocopulation, as the manic master has brought his talents to the remake of the cyborg cop movie. Although the assumption was initially that he would play the villain, because he’s Gary Oldman, but he’s actually going to play a new character: the scientist who built Robocop. For the sake of making the boring retread interesting, I hope he’s the kind of scientist prone to psychotic episodes.
  • Lee Daniels, the director of Precious, may have his follow-up, The Paperboy, set for release, but it’s the developing cast of The Butler that sounds fascinating. Forest Whitaker, Oprah Winfrey, Cuba Gooding Jr., Terrence Howard,  Nicole Kidman, Alan Rickman, Jane Fonda, Lenny Kravitz and John Cusack will now be joined by Matthew McConaughey as JFK and Minka Kelly as Jackie Kennedy. If Daniels wanted my interest, he could have saved some money and just hired that last name.

Movieha! - Omaha’s favorite movie podcast

It's Friday again! And this is a day that is popular for reasons other than its inclusion in an internet meme and the name of a chain restaurant. That's right, it's beloved because it's the day you get new Movieha! This week we discuss exorcisms and Alf, explore a trailer that will probably get Matt sued, ponder what has become of Sacha Baron Cohen, analyze a Netflix movie that involves a porn star, and wrap up with haikus. Get to listening and we'll meet up on the other side with the trailers that we mention!

On Your Radar: The Master

This is our first glimpse at brilliant director Paul Thomas Anderson's take on Scientology. I would say  more about how excited I am, but I'm pretty sure that Tom Cruise and Will Smith have lawyers standing behind me right now.
 

Netflix Roulette: Submarine

This was a coming-of-age movie that got quite a bit of love in the critic community, but it just slipped by me on its release. So we're making up for lost time by checking it out now!
