Movieha! - Omaha’s favorite movie podcast

I can hardly believe it. A year ago, Matt Lockwood and I began the crazy process of recording a weekly audio extravaganza to drop on your ears. And a year later, neither of us have lost interest enough to walk away. If you knew our short attention spans, you'd be amazed. So before I tell you the goodness you can enjoy on this, our anniversary, I would ask that you take a moment to consider WHAT YOU WANT FROM US?! I mean that in a serious way. If there is something you want more of or less of, if there are things that work and things that don't, now is the time to tell us. We want nothing more than to give you what you want.

Now, as far as this week goes. We will talk to you of Prometheus (the movie, not the Greek character). We will ponder the future of James Cameron (in terms of movies, not his personal life). We will explore The Avengers (as a movie, we don't conduct a cavity search). We will discuss Knuckle (the documentary, not the joint). And we will deliver some haikus (as in write poetry, not give birth to poems). So listen up, and meet me on the other side for the trailers that we mention.

On Your Radar: After School Midnighters

Look, I understand that Japanese animation isn't for everyone. But if we can't rally around a movie in which skinless squirrels shoot machine guns at an anatomic representation of a human being, I don't know what we can come together on. Watching the trailer below is the safest way to drop acid.

Netflix Roulette: Cemetery Junction

I almost chose a movie that centered around a porn star. Maybe next week? This is a coming-of-age story that is created in part by Ricky Gervais. So you know it's both funny and moderately narcissistic. Enjoy!

Cutting Room for May 4

  • Slimmer though he may be, Jonah Hill has developed a new hunger…to be taken seriously. Rumor has it that he is in talks with Martin Scorsese to appear in The Wolf of Wall Street, which sadly is not a documentary about the jerks who trade futures being devoured by wildlife. The adaptation of a memoir of the same name is sure to do wonders for our image of brokers, as it details the life of a coked-out douchebag. Hill wouldn’t be the lead, as Marty and Leonardo DiCaprio are still going steady, but given how loyal the director is, Hill may just satiate his dramatic appetite by placing himself on Scorsese’s menu.
  • Speaking of Hill, he and co-stars Ben Stiller, Vince Vaughn and Richard Ayoade had what we’ll call “unfortunate timing” with a potentially hilarious upcoming release. It’s the rarest of all comedy breeds, a sci-fi ha-ha, that sees a bunch of Joe Averages stumble onto a global threat. The problem? It was titled Neighborhood Watch, a title tainted by the Trayvon Martin tragedy. So now the film is just The Watch, because it’s far better to sound like a documentary about timekeeping than a comedy about the homicidal perils of ill-conceived gun laws.
  • Setting aside the snark for a moment, our sympathies go out to friends, families and fans of Adam “MCA” Yauch of the Beastie Boys. Although obviously primarily known as an influential musician, Yauch founded Oscilloscope Laboratories, a film distribution company I have had the pleasure of working with many times. They are the folks behind We Need to Talk About Kevin, Exit Through the Gift Shop and Dear Zachary to name just a few. The man wasn’t just an audio pioneer but a visual visionary as well. And he’ll be missed.

Movieha! - Omaha’s favorite movie podcast

Good afternoon, you lovely audio explorers. It's time to use those ears to spellunk something awesome, as this week's podcast sees us dive headfirst into news about The Fast and the Furious (Rihanna style) and The Hobbit (eye-sore style), explore the high-quality art that is the trailer for Strippers vs. Werewolves (raunchy style), examine The 5-Year Engagement (Blunt style), consider the Netflix streaming flick Pete Smalls is Dead (boring style), and finally write some Haikus (senstive poet style). Consider your ears cannibal plants ready to be fed by Seymour...only in this case, you listen more. Meet me below for the trailers we mention!

On Your Radar: Strippers vs Werewolves

Alright, admittedly, this isn't high-brow entertainment. It is, however, entertainment bros would like to watch high. So give it a chance, as strippers need love too. Extra love, usually, of the sort their father denied them...

Netflix Roulette: Knuckle

Friendly piece of advice, if you don't think this documentary about bare-knuckling boxing and an Irish family feud looks great, DON'T TELL THE PEOPLE IN IT. They have zero qualms about face-punchin'.
