Movieha - Omaha’s Movie Podcast!

Hey gang! Last week there was some confusion and tomfoolery with the site that prevented us from giving you the podcastical goodness you deserve on this here Reader site. No worries though, bruvva, I'll go ahead and post this week's podcast and trailers as well as LAST WEEK'S podcast and trailers all in one spot for the grand price of free. You can't beat that deal. Especially considering that this week we introduce a grand new game for Matt to play, discuss one of our favorite movies of the summer, and blow apart a certain hobo with a certain shotgun, all before delivering some haiku goodness. That's a lot of awesome!

Episode 19 - Ryan Welcomes Tiny Men

On Your Radar - Tyrannosaur

A well-acted flick from a first-time director is always worth noting, so get ready for some gruffly accented violent relationship exploration!

Netflix Roulette: Mystery Team

I'm so excited to talk about this one! My love for the talented Donald Glover knows no bounds. I mean, it knows legal bounds and whatnot, but not many more than that. Here's the trailer.

 

Episode 18 - Sexy Justice!

On Your Radar: A Lonely Place to Die

Don't let the title fool you, this one looks really intense and depressing.

Netflix Roulette: Hobo with a Shotgun

The trailer is better than the movie. Watch this and call it a day.

Cutting Room for August 31

  • Someone cue up a Toby Keith song, Freedom is finally coming to Omaha. Of course, in this case we’re referencing a documentary that investigates alternatives to fossil fuels, not the flag-waving independence that Mr. Keith has assured us all is not, in fact, free. The film, which I’m going to just guess is the first and only collaboration involving Newt Gingrich, Jason Mraz and Deepak Chopra, is actually rolling into Omaha as part of the “Freedom Tour.” A huge bus that runs entirely on delightfully clean energy will roll through the Big O and help promote not only the film but discussions of our energy use. For more information, hit up thefreedomfilm.com, or just ask Ed Begley Jr. for details; he’ll set you straight.
     
  • Kevin Smith, who previously vowed to make Hit Somebody his last movie, is now making Hit Somebody his last two movies. Because America’s need for an in-depth exploration of the life of a hockey player is insatiable, the film will be divided into two parts: Hit Somebody: Home and Hit Somebody: Away. The former will be PG-13, the latter will be R, and both are likely to suck. Sorry, Kev. I’m still not over Zack and Miri Make a Porno.
     
  • The number one movie rumor I am most consistently asked about is Ghostbusters 3. The cycle goes like this: Every few months, if only to fend off false Wikipedia edits about his demise, Dan Aykroyd says some clever lie about how they’re “almost ready” or how a script is “in the works.” This time he has said that the film is going to happen with or without Bill Murray. No, it won’t. Sorry to crush dreams here, but unless Murray flip flops and decides he’s in, Aykroyd is just a liar with a lot of Ys in his last name.

Cutting Room for August 24

  • Remember how you were just thinking, “How can I go on living without the prospect of at least one more Rambo movie?” Good news, my depressed and strangely Stallone obsessed amigo! There’s a script for Rambo: Last Stand, which has been likened to the western classic, Unforgiven. I can only assume this comparison is based on a similar number of craggy faces, wrinkles and AARP/NRA members. We can’t stabilize our own economy, but we’ve got five Rambo movies. Suck on that, world!
     
  • Not that you should, because you shouldn’t, but if you were going to remake The Wild Bunch, you shouldn’t have director Tony Scott do it. The original orgy of Western violence by Sam Peckinpah does not lend itself to Scott’s edit-happy, “What-the-hell-am-I-looking-at” direction. So, as you have probably guessed, this is exactly what’s happening.
     
  • In additional Scott family news, Tony’s brother Ridley Scott dropped a mega-huge sci-fi news bombshell: He’s directing another Blade Runner film. Is it a prequel? Is it a sequel? Is it just a film set in the same universe? All of these questions pale in comparison to the most important one: Can he promise it won’t suck?
     
  • Bradley Cooper will no longer be the lead in The Crow, the remake of the 1994 cult classic. Instead, the posterchild for Goths everywhere will still be resurrected, with either Mark Wahlberg or Channing Tatum wearing the pancake makeup and eyeliner, with best money on Wahlberg because people know who the hell he is. After years of reporting the name, I’m still proud to say I have no idea what a Channing Tatum is or if it hurts.
