Movieha! - Omaha’s favorite movie podcast

Welcome back, you intrepid voyagers of the interwebs. We have another delicious audio-buffet that we cooked for you, clocking in at 0 calories and your entire daily intake of inappropriate nicknames for breasts. This week we dissect the Oscars, defend The Lorax's honor, check out a lady-Bourne trailer, play Netflix roulette, and deliver you some poetry. All in a week's work. Click away and listen up, and then meet me below for the trailers we mentioned!

On Your Radar: ID:A

If you like your amnesiac possible spies shaken, stirred, and with lady parts, you'll love this one. The trailer don't tell you jack squat about what's up, but as you heard in the podcast, this is a tale of an amnesiac fighting for her life against unknown foes. Sounds enticing, no?

Netflix Roulette: Norwegian Ninja

Were we NOT going to do a movie named Norwegian Ninja? I mean, really. Watch the trailer. If the awesome 80s-sounding music doesn't get you, chances are the dude weightlifting a wolf will.

Cutting Room for February 29

  • Although I would never take Film Streams (filmstreams.org) for granted, I am thrilled to see them once-more granted. That is to say, the theater has received a $7500 grant from the Lincoln Financial Foundation to support the Forever Young Family and Children’s Series. And as the car dealers love to say, “they’re passing the savings on to you!” From now until the end of the series, which wraps up at the end of March, tickets are dropping to a crazy $5 for general audiences and an unbelievable $2.50 for Film Streams members and Lincoln Financial employees and their families. That means you can see Fantastic Mr. Fox, Animation Block Party: Animation for Kids and Looney Tunes Collection for a new low-low price! I like talking like a salesman. You can’t tell right now, but pretend you see me flailing my arms about and screaming while I read this.
  • Although it may regrettably sound like the kind of site you wipe from your browser history, Tugg.com may be the next big step in the fast-moving relationship between movies and social media. Currently in its beta stage, the site works like this: Let’s say you want to see a movie that isn’t screening in your area…hypothetically, let’s say it’s the new Miley Cyrus documentary We All Thought You’d Be Gone By Now. If it’s in the Tugg library, you create an event using the site, choosing the price, time and theater from a list of participating companies. Then you try to use whatever means you can to get people to commit to coming (facebook, twitter, newspapers, skywriting, smoke signals, graffiti, or whatever). Once a minimum number of guests confirmed, Tugg takes care of the logistics, and WHAMMO: you get see your movie. This is a fried slice of hot genius in my opinion, as it’s low risk for everyone involved. Keep your eyes peeled for more on this soon.

Cutting Room provides breaking local and national movie news … complete with added sarcasm. Send any relevant information to film@thereader.com. Check out Ryan on Movieha!, a weekly half-hour movie podcast (movieha.libsyn.com/rss), catch him on the radio on CD 105.9 (cd1059.com) on Fridays at around 7:30 a.m. and on KVNO 90.7 (KVNO.org) at 8:30 a.m. on Fridays and follow him on Twitter (twitter.com/thereaderfilm).

Movieha - Omaha’s Movie Podcast!

Hidey ho, neighbors. Oof, sorry, just realized that was a "Home Improvement" references. Ah, those were the good old days, back when Pamela Anderson wasn't a human freakshow and Tim Allen was trying to be funny on purpose. This week's podcast is full of newsity news and our usual jackassery, including a look at some expensive movie props you can buy, a too-cool-for-school trailer, an unthrilling look at the thriller Safe House, another Movieha Movie Quiz, Netflix review of Lillihammer, and our Hakus. Give it a listen and then meet me on the other side for the trailers we mention!

 

On Your Radar: Damsels in Distress

I remember when movies like this were all the rage. It was a simpler time then, a time when men were men (who wore their hair overly gel-ed) and women were in love with Ethan Hawke. It was called the 90s, and it was glorious. This movie seems like a blend of Heathers and Mean Girls, so if that interests you, which it should, get excited!

 

Netflix Roulette: Happythankyoumoreplease

Ted is like NOBODY'S favorite on "How I Met Your Mother," which is too bad. I mean, at least I think it's too bad because Josh Radnor seems like a swell chap. Rumor has it he's not too shabby behind the camera with the writing and the directing. So let's find out together, shall we?
