Movieha - EXTRA BONUS Minisode!

Can I be honest with you for a minute here? Good. We really enjoy this podcasting business. Matt and I are hopefully sound like we're having fun on the recording because we actually are. But that doesn't mean that we don't want YOU to have fun. Far from it. We're genuinely interested in collecting constructive criticism and suggestions for new segments, better ways to do old segments, or just things you like or dislike in general. The following little minisode is only 6 minutes or so in length and features an attempt at a potential new segment for the podcast. Give it a listen and then meet me on the other side of the fancy streaming-audio bar below.

So what did you think? We're trying to delicately balance entertainment and information on the 'cast, and while this skews entirely towards comedy and fun, we have other segments entirely based on information and reviewing. Do you like the segment? Should we keep it? Who won the first battle? Let us know by hitting us up on Facebook , on Twitter, or at our email at .(JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address). Please, please let us know if you want it in the episode we're recording tonight! And as always, please sign up for our RSS feed HERE, download our podcasts and rave about us in the comments section of iTunes HERE.

Movieha - Omaha’s Movie Podcast (May 20)

Welcome to another episode of Movieha! We continue to try and evolve and change, ever-listening to your comments. This week we rename one segment and revamp another! What's more, on Tuesday, we're going to sample a little mini-cast for you of a new segment we want your feedback on. But for now, listen to this week's episode in which Matt volunteers to fight famous people and denies his obvious sexual attraction to Roger Rabbit. Meet you on the other side for some extra stuff!

So what did you think? Hopefully we're getting a little more together, delivering a little more of what you want, but as always, please let us know what else we can do to satisfy you. We're all about your needs. Now let's get to the weekly business.

Box Office Haikus

Here are last week’s results along with my patented formula that reveals my predictive accuracy: Box Office May 6-8 1.) Thor - $34 million (Accuracy of prediction - 94%) 2.) Bridesmaids - $26 million (Accuracy of prediction - 98%) 3.) Fast 5 - $20 million (Accuracy of prediction - 87.5%) 4.) Priest - $15 million (Accuracy of prediction - 100%) 5.) Rio - $8 million (Accuracy of prediction - 0%)

Overall accuracy of prediction - 76%

Rio did me in.
I swear I'm better than this.
Maybe not by much.

Now, on to this week’s predictions!

Box Office Predictions for May 20-22

1.) Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides - $95 million
Enjoy your last ride,
I think we're over pirates.
It's walk the plank time.

2.) Bridesmaids - $20 million
Huge word-of-mouth here,
everybody loves it lots!
Why? Because it's GOOD.

3.) Thor - $19 million
This had a good run
but the thunder god's reign ends.
He should get hammered.

4.) Fast 5 - $10 million
A successful flick,
meaning we will get lots more,
good news for meatheads.

5.) Priest - $5 million
I won't see this one.
It just isn't worth my time,
which isn't worth much.

On Your Radar: The Scenesters Trailer

This week's little movie that we've got our eyes on is a quirky indie comedy from a small Los Angeles comedy troupe. I found the trailer to be funnier than most full movies these days (outside of Bridesmaids). No clue when it will get to us, but we'll keep our eyes out and let you know!

The Trotsky Trailer

This looks like a potentially interesting little flick with elements of romance, a bit of wacky madcap hilarity, and a historical figure who was murdered with an icepick. What's not to consider. This is our Netflix Roulette entry for the week, so load up the metaphorical gun and press this film to your temple along with us!

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

Cutting Room for May 25

  • If Hollywood gets to start the summer movie season in April, I think it’s fair that the Aksarben Cinema (aksarbencinema.com) gets to celebrate Halloween whenever they want. On the last Saturday of every month from now until the start of the apocalyptic year 2012, the theater and Dr. San Guinary are teaming up for “Creature Feature Live!” The show starts at 9:30 pm and features a horror movie interspersed with live Dr. San Guinary cut-ins in the style of the cult-hit TV show. Tickets are already available for this month’s flick (held on May 28), Night of the Living Dead. All this at a theater that will legally booze you up. Boo-yeah! Get it? “Boo” yeah?

  • A brief follow-up to last week’s proclamation that D-Box seats, chairs that weeble-wobble to simulate on-screen action, were added to the Rave Theater at Westroads (ravemotionpictures.com). Having now tried one for myself, I can tell you that it neither made me turn into Pukey Smurf nor did it distract me from the movie. That could be because the movie, Pirates of the Caribbean 4: The Last Milk of the Cash Cow, wasn’t something you really had to think about. While the price is a steep 20 bucks, it is a rather unique experience that’s worth checking out at least once, provided you don’t use theater visits as naptimes.

  • Darren Aronofsky is being courted. Badassdigest.com reports that Disney wants him to take over Maleficent, the “Wicked”-esque take on Sleeping Beauty that Tim Burton recently abandoned, while Warner Brothers wants him on the biblical epic Moses, which is sure to be followed by a sequel called Moses Supposes. Neither sound like Aronofsky’s style, but combine the two and you may have something…
