Movieha! - Omaha’s favorite movie podcast

Hey, hey, hey. We're back up in your ears with a new episode jam packed to the gills with a discussion of 21 Jump Street (which was surprisingly good!), The Sound of My Voice trailer (which is super awesome!), news about the Ninja Turtles (which is stunningly lame!) and Jack Ryan (which is stunningly neutral!), Poolboy (which is mind-numbingly enjoyable to one of us!), and Hakus (which are supercalifragalisticexpialidocious!). Listen up and then meet me on the other side for the trailers, yo!

On Your Radar: The Sound of My Voice

This is how I like my sci-fi best: subtle and smart. Oh hell, who am I kidding, I'll gobble up dumb and obvious sci-fi like a malnourished hungry, hungry hippo. Still, this looks goooood.

Netflix Roulette: Strigoi

I'm about to find out how I feel about darkly comedic supernatural material set in Romania. Join me.

Cutting Room for March 21

  • Don’t worry, I promise I’m not lying and the following film series Israel. Get it? “is-real?” It’s funnier out loud, so remind me to tell it to you again in person. Anyhoodle, Film Streams (filmstreams.org) is collaborating with The Natan and Hannah Schwalb Center for Israel and Jewish Studies at UNO and the University of Nebraska Foundation to bring a downright Judaic film series to The Ruth Sokolof Theatre on the last three Thursdays in April. It all starts on April 12 at 7 pm with Restoration, which will be followed by a post-show discussion led by Dr. Ran Kuttner from Creighton University School of Law. Then on April 19 at 7 pm, Happy You’re Alive will be screened, with a Q&A with director Hilla Medalia after. Finally, on April 26 at 7 pm, Footnote will be shown with a post-show discussion led by Dr. Moshe Gershovich From UNO. This is can’t-miss cool kosher cinema. Props if you mentally pronounced that last “C” as a hard “C.”
  • Although it goes against my strong belief that the infiltration of text speak into everyday life is marginally worse than an infestation of smallpox, Can U Feel It is coming to Omaha. It’s a documentary about the Ultra Music Festival in Miami, which is where DJs and producers put on an epic extravaganza of dance music enjoyed by thousands of screaming fans who are totally not high on drugs…they just think hands are “so weird.” So if you like the feeling of hearing pulsating sound but prefer to not be sweat on by strangers, head to AMC Oakview 24 (amctheatres.com/Oakview) on Thursday March 22. Actually, with the devolution of in-theater behaviors these days, I can’t actually promise the no-sweating-on-by-strangers thing.

Movieha! - Omaha’s favorite movie podcast

Greetings earthlings. We come in peace. Or at least in pieces. This week our audio extravaganza is inexplicably divisive, as Matt and I brawl repeatedly over the sorts of things nobody should really brawl about (including, but not limited to varying opinions on breakfast cereals). This week we discuss fairy tales and garbage pails, a murdering wolf-kid trailer, the problems with John Carter's John Carter, the vile spawn of Tom Hanks, and poetry. All in all, it's not a bad way to treat your ears. Listen up, and I'll meet you on the other side with the trailers we discussed.

On Your Radar: Citadel

Feral children are the most horrifying things in the world. They combine my fear of children and, you know, werewolves. It's a horror movie that isn't exactly a horror movie, and those are my favorites. Get terrified below!

Netflix Roulette: Poolboy

This is real. This is a real thing. And we're going to watch it. I would describe further, but I really think the trailer speaks for itself.
