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!

Cutting Room for May 18

  • It’s not enough that Ryan Reynolds has sarcasm and abs sharp enough to cut you, but now he’s never going to die. Forget how stalkerish that sounds and focus on the following: Highlander is getting a remake possibly featuring Captain Sassy Abs. Aside from the tsunami of “I thought there could be only one” jokes, the thing to focus on is who will play the Sean Connery role. My vote is for Christopher Lambert. The cycle is now complete.
  • Guillermo Del Toro, who has had approximately one billion projects in various shades of development without actually having made a film in almost five years, is supposedly moving full-steam ahead on a 3D stop-motion animated take on Pinocchio. It’s going to be slightly darker. And by slightly darker, I mean Nick Cave is doing the music, and Christopher Walken and Tom Waits are on his wish list for the voice acting. A darker, more stylish take on a fairy tale subject? Somewhere, Tim Burton is yelling at a gothic mirror that Johnny Depp is holding, yelling “You told me I was the fairest of them all!” while Danny Elfman hums in the corner.
  • A dear and lovely friend of mine, Tessie, is currently obsessed with all things Neverland. And I mean Peter Pan and not the Michael Jackson (alleged) molestation factory. FYI: The word alleged makes that last joke sue-proof! At any rate, I’ll be eager to see how she reacts to news that Peter and the Starcatchers, a movie based on a Pan prequel written by Dave Barry and Ridley Pearson, is going to hit screens in the very near future. It will either delight her to see more of that world or infuriate her. My vote is infuriated if she’s familiar with the limp and tame work of Dave Barry.

Movieha! - Omaha’s favorite movie podcast

Antoher week, another dose of movie love for your ears. This week we discuss lady Avengers and book adaptations, get our Gondry on, skewer Dark Shadows, and dig up a Cemetery Junction. What are you waiting for? Press play and smile already! Meet you on the other side for the trailers we mention!

On Your Radar: The We and the I

Michael Gondry may have swung and missed with The Green Hornet but, to continue the baseball metaphor, I'm pretty sure Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind was smashed so hard that it still hasn't landed. That means I am IN for anything he does ever. Like this little slice of life gem below.

Netflix Roulette: Elektra Luxx

You know, we so rarely get to post anything involving porn here. Porn. Porn. Porn. That should help drive traffic up. Carla Gugino, who is super talented and underrated, stars in this comedy about a porn star who gets preggo. And we're gonna watch it. AND YOU SHOULD TOO!
