Movieha - Omaha’s Movie Podcast (June 17)

Welcome back sexy internet voyagers! Once more we have gathered to declare war on boredom by providing audiotastic joy! Do we mention Django Unchained? Do I call Matt a subhuman pigperson? Do we disparage Will Smith and his progeny? Do we squee over Super 8? Does Matt have full body tremors over a movie trailer? Do we solve the formula for cold fusion? The answer is yes to all but one of those (Hint: I'm a big Jaden Smith fan). Listen away and then let's reunite on the other side.

First up, BOX OFFICE HAIKUS!

My mom is so proud.

Now, on to this week’s predictions!

Box Office Predictions for June 17-19

1.)Green Lantern - $55 million
Nothing to see here
but you will go anyway.
And then regret it.

2.)Mr. Popper's Penguins - $27 million
If you haven't seen,
Jim Carrey's press for this one
has been just INSANE!

3.)Super 8 - $21 million
If you saw it...GOOD!
If you haven't...GET OUT THERE!
I swear you'll love it.

4.) X-Men: First Class - $12 million
Green Lantern will hurt
but this film is much better.
That should mean something.

5.) Kung Fu Panda 2- $11 million
Popper will pop this
The battle of black and white
animals begins!

On Your Radar:BellflowerTrailer

The story behind the making of Evan Glodell's Bellflower is almost as thrilling as trailer itself. An indie action-tinged film that looks brilliant...Matt has already lost his nut over this one. Check it out and you'll see why.

Netflix Roulette: The Nines

If you've seen my review above, you'll know that Ryan Reynolds' latest is not so great. That makes me sad, because we LOVE him here at Movieha. Thus, we're watching a supposedly better smaller movie from him. This mind-bender is one Matt hasn't seen yet, but I have. He's gonna love it. And so will you, check out the trailer below!

That's it for this week. Thanks again for all your support!

Cutting Room for June 15

  • The phenomenon of The Room defies logic. It is also an unstoppable juggernaut, as Tommy Wiseau’s costar, Greg Sestero, is set to release a tell-all book called “Locked Inside The Room” in 2013. It will dive into all the scintillating questions that a person would have about a movie widely considered to be the worst thing done with a recording device not owned by a politician. Look, I get the entertainment value of watching the schlocky cult classic once or twice, but if you actually take the time to read a book written by a minor player in the worst film of all time, please donate your remaining life force to someone who can use it better.

  • Even though he can’t be serious, Warren Beatty suggested that he’s possibly interested in making another Dick Tracy movie. There’s no way out of icky Viagra jokes here other than simply suggesting that Beatty really shouldn’t concern himself with wearing a rain coat at his age.

  • Damon Lindelof, mastermind of what is still my favorite show ever (“Lost”), is going to write an original sci-fi film for Disney. It’s called 1952, and nobody knows anything about it because everything those “Lost” boys do is shrouded in six shades of secrecy. Just a suggestion, Damon: I’d start with an awesome ending this time and work backwards…

  • Given his deadpan delivery, it’s entirely possible that Zach Galifianakis is kidding, but he recently suggested that the inevitable Hangover Part III may follow his character being sprung from a mental asylum. Hey, just so long as wretched people are treated like human pinatas and are forced to degrade themselves for our entertainment, we’ll love it.

Movieha - A very special episode…

As promised (or threatened), our nerd-tastic relationship with The Two-Headed Nerd podcast has reached new heights, as we present to you our round-table discussion on X-Men: First Class. We've done our best to delete the cursing, but I feel that this rambunctious verbal free-for-all appropriately captures our geeky passion and will help further expose the depths of our love of movie discussion. Enjoy!
