Movieha - Omaha’s Movie Podcast!

Hello again! Welcome to yet another installment of Movieha, the only podcast unafraid to talk about William H Macy's buttocks. If that's not an appealing enough intro for you today, we've got a veritable all-you-can-eat audio buffet of movie news, giggle-fit inducing jokes, and other various tidbits. Don't just sit there, press play! I'll meet you on the other side with the trailers we spoke about in the podcast.

On Your Radar: Extraterrestrial

Who wouldn't want more from a director named Nacho? I thoroughly enjoyed Time Crimes, and although it has yet to be seen if lightning can strike twice, I am definitely intrigued by the premise of this one. See for yourself!

Netflix Roulette: Exit Through the Gift Shop

I know I'm tardy to the party on this one. Sorry. I'm excited to watch it though. If you haven't seen it already, check out the trailer below.

Cutting Room for September 21

  • Despite earlier reports, Kevin Costner has passed on a role in Quentin Tarantino’s Django Unchained. In related news, I am now really looking forward to seeing Django Unchained.
  • Although a whole generation may have grown up knowing Spike Lee only as an annoying sports fan, those who remember his early films know the power hiding in that man’s directorial toolbox. So break out the bubbly, because in 2012, Mookie’s back, baby. That’s right, Lee’s new film, Red Hook Summer, has some measure of relationship to Do the Right Thing, one of the most important American movies ever made. Although it definitely features the return of Mookie, the pizza delivery man played by Lee, it is unclear whether this is a straight-up sequel or more likely simply related to the classic film. Either way, it’s refreshing to see an artist returning to the canvas he once mastered. I got me the goosebumps, I do!
  •  One million people are officially pissed at Netflix. Everyone was wondering what kind of bite the new price hikes would take out of membership to the popular video service, and the answer is about a million frustrated folks. As many as 80% of those quitters were only using the DVD aspect of the service, not the streaming option. That’s funny, because the price increase was actually only for people who wanted to do both. Either way, someone at Red Box is smiling.
  • My favorite writer, Harlan Ellison, is suing folks again. This time, he’s accusing the makers of the new sci-fi movie In Time, claiming they ripped off my favorite short story ever, “Repent, Harlequin! Said the Ticktockman.” Given that this is a Justin Timberlake movie, Ellison stands to gain literally dozens of dollars.

Movieha - Omaha’s Movie Podcast!

Here we go again! Sorry for the delay in getting this here. I'm going to blame my Contagion-induced phobia of touching anything. Keyboards looked like petri dishes for like a full week. But better late than never, right? In this installment, Matt and I dish about Mel Gibson's hilarious career choice, contemplate things On Your Radar and in our Netflix Roulette wheel, and still have time to drop some hot haikus. Give us a listen and meet me on the other side for trailers and whatnot.

On Your Radar: The Raid

Sometimes you want detailed plots and intense storylines and characters. Sometimes, you want action that, as Matt puts it, threatens to "kick your kidney out through your butt." And doesn't that sound like a treat?! Check out the kidney punching glory below.

Netflix Roulette: Intacto

The trailer describes this movie as involving a game where "Winning is surviving." That sounds kind of like how we feel about Netflix Roulette itself. Often, we aren't looking for full-on enjoyment, we're looking just to make it through to the other side. This one looks like a potential treat, though. I heard buzz about it ages ago and never had a chance to check it out. We'll be remedying that this week. Join us, won't you?

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