Movieha! - Omaha’s favorite movie podcast

Once more into the breech my good men and women. This week's installment (which will have to tide you over, as we're taking a week of next week...I'm penning this missive from the great state of Texas!) is chock full of the goodness you've come to expect from your favorite movie dudes. We've got April fool's talk, the worst sequel idea ever, a sassy trailer, an in-depth review of "adult animation" and a soul-crushing Netflix roulette pick. Enjoy!

On Your Radar: The Sweeney

Are we NOT going to post a trailer for a film that involves a lot of British blokes pointing guns angrily? Didn't think so.

Netflix Roulette: Rare Exports

Yes, it's April. Yes, this is a Christmas movie. No, I won't apologize for choosing it.

Cutting Room for April 4

  • The Mary Riepma Ross Theater (theross.org) in Lincoln has a thirst for blood so big a single screen can’t contain it. On Thursday, April 5 at 7 pm, Unfiltered Entertainment, which is a Lincoln-based production company, will hold the premiere of their feature-length horror film Blood Rites on not one but two screens, enough to hopefully accommodate the hordes of horror buffs looking to catch the free showing. Co-written and directed by Dorothy Booraem, one of the rare ladies who care to create cinema carnage in this genre, the film features lots of Nebraska actors and locations, which is exactly where I want to see horrible, nightmare-inducing images take place. It saves me the trouble of imagining them happening in my hometown by actually taking place in my hometown. Yippee?
  • Some call it a genre, some call it simply a style, I call it simply delicious; you hear me, dame? Film Streams (filmstreams.org) is kicking off April with all the femme fatales and slick dicks you could dream up, as they’re launching Film Streams Noir. The repertory series will feature such iconic works as The Maltese Falcon and The Killers, which makes this fella happier than a private investigator with a new fedora. For more information, check out the site and make plans to catch these classic hardboiled works of cinema before they catch you in the act!
  • As we slouch ever closer to our inevitable December apocalypse, I give you the latest step towards our planetary demise. Twins is getting a sequel…called Triplets…and Eddie Murphy will be the third brother alongside Arnold Schwarzenegger and Danny DeVito. If this movie premieres and the world doesn’t end, I promise you, we’ll be begging for Armageddon.

Movieha! - Omaha’s favorite movie podcast

Having survived the madness surrounding The Hunger Games, we've got a podcast you...KATNISS....get it? Like it sounds like "can't miss!" Kind of? Not really? Okay then. This week we talk about the real Bully, the MPAA. We also discuss a Kazakhstaccident, the trailer for a foreign action extravaganza, The Hunger Games, the Netflix Roulette selection (Strigoi), and do some MovieHakus for you. What are you waiting for?! Listen up and then meet me on the other side for the trailers we discussed.

On Your Radar: Sleepless Night

The pull quotes alone make me want to see this. They all but say "This movie punches you in the genitals...but in a GOOD way!" In fact, one of the quotations may have been just that. At any rate, here's the foreign gem's trailer.

Netflix Roulette: Special

This is one I had been meaning to see for awhile. But the number of movies I get to watch just because is so slim it's unreal. So, here's my chance to get my Michael Rappaport on. Side note: If you've seen him in that MovieTickets.com ad, isn't it the saddest thing ever? Dude used to be good.
