Movieha - Omaha’s Movie Podcast!

It is the fastball special again, but hey, it is our dirty thirty episode so don’t be sad! We have some Dr. Who/Brad Pitt news. The Radar finds a movie about gambling for Jesus in Holy Rollers. A review of Take Shelter. We cry out for the sake of "Community," Netflix hits up Pontypool, and we Ha!ku our way out of town. Legendary comedic stylings ahoy!

On Your Radar: Holy Rollers

I love movies with interesting subcultures, and this one is exactly that. Any film that features the phrase: "If you want to know Jesus, you should learn blackjack" has my interest.

Netflix Roulette: The Escapist

A prison escape movie? With Bryan Cox? Well, don't mind if we do!

Cutting Room for November 16

  • It’s official: The excitement of the behind the scenes madness surrounding the Oscars has surpassed any excitement ever created by the actual Oscars. Brett Ratner, who is a horrible director and worse human being, has wisely resigned his spot as producer of the Academy Awards in the wake of publicly stating that “Rehearsing is for fags.” Eddie Murphy only agreed to host this year’s navel-gazing back-patting because he’s buddies with “The Rat,” so now he’s out too. So what ratings-enhancing hero swooped in to save the day? Billy Crystal. And with that uninspired declaration, you may now return to yawning.
  • They got Batman and Spider-man, so it’s only fair that we get Princess Diana. That’s right, with Brits Christian Bale and Andrew Garfield poaching the aforementioned prime American roles, it’s only fair that Jessica Chastain takes a U.K. role as retribution. Caught in Flight will tell the story of a secret affair that Lady Di had with a surgeon. The involvement of the brilliant Chastain moves this from “unwatchable Lifetime TV movie” status to “potentially not terrible.
  • Don’t worry. Even though skinny-minnie Jonah Hill isn’t going to be able to appear in Quentin Tarantino’s Django Unchained due to scheduling conflicts, there is still exciting casting news to report. Tom Wopat, that’s right, the Tom Wopat from “The Dukes of Hazzard,” will appear in the film. If the thought of one of them ‘durn Duke boys appearing in a QT film doesn’t make your heart beat to the sound of the General Lee’s horn, there’s not much I can do for ya.

Movieha - Omaha’s Movie Podcast!

Technology sucks. You can pretend otherwise, but the reality is that it exists only to taunt us. Technology is Lucy, holding the football out to Charlie Brown, telling him "it's okay, you can trust me." And then WHAMMO. Kersplat. Technology will be the death of us all, and we know it, yet we continue to rely on it, slouching ever closer towards our inevitable, horrid demise.

So, yeah, it's been that kind of few weeks at Movieha.

We've tried valiantly to get this content to you, braving all kinds of personal and technological storms, and yet we fell woefully behind. WOEFULLY behind. So here it is, a one-stop shopping post for all of the last 3 episodes of Movieha that weren't yet posted here. You can either gorge your ears on this in one large feast, or you can divide it up. Either way, you're going to have some fun. Here they are in reverse chronological order:

Episode 29 - Partly Metal, Partly Real

On Your Radar: Paranorman

Admittedly, we tend to skew a little dark on these trailers. So this time, we gave you an animated flick! I mean, sure it has undead demons and whatnot, but it has kids too!

Netflix Roulette: Pontypool

An art-house take on zombie stuff? Okay. I'm down, even if it's from Canada.


Episode 28 - Turd Talk

On Your Radar: Headshot

A hitman movie with a cool gimmick? Sign us up.

Netflix Roulette: Red State

I really liked this movie. For real.

Episode 27 - Oomph Zazz

On Your Radar: Ecstacy

Hey, it's not what you think it is. Okay, maybe it is.

Netflix Roulette: Splinterheads

Honestly, I can't even recommend you watch this trailer.

That's it! We're all caught up! Hooray!
