Movieha! - Omaha’s favorite movie podcast

There are episodes that flow out of us as easily as a comforting stream of urine after a captivating 3 hour movie. And then there are episodes like this... Recording problems, operator errors (sorry, Matt), plotting issues, and so on and so on and so on. Be not afraid, intrepid adventurers of audio extravagence, I'm sure you're safe in listening about the Scream TV show, Leo in Bat-movies, the Branded trailer, Snow White and the Huntsman, Sleep Dealer, and haikus...OR ARE YOU?

On Your Radar: Branded

The metaphor is obvious and the point seems clearly made. Then again, in listening to complaints about Prometheus, apparently that's what we demand in our science fiction.

Netflix Roulette: Cold Weather

Now more than ever, thanks to the BBC show, I want to be Sherlock Holmes. So the thought of a guy who studies forensics science wanting to be involved in a mystery like Sherlock Holmes not only appeals to me, it may be me.

Cutting Room for June 1

  • Film Streams (filmstreams.org) is going a long way for a play on words here, but they’ve earned it. Leading up to their fifth anniversary on July 27, a momentous occasion that makes me feel older than my desire to eat dinner at 4:30, the theater is celebrating for the next nine weeks, culminating with Jane Fonda coming to town for a fundraiser on July 22. They’re calling it “Nine to Five.” If you don’t get that reference, you need to get slapped with Dolly Parton’s bazooms. The celebration is going to include a look back at milestones for the theater and a healthy dose of appreciation for those who made it all happen. But you know, for bringing high-brow art cinema to our humble Big O, I kinda feel like we should be the ones thanking them.
  • Have no fear, Aaron Johnson, Chloe Moretz and Christopher Mintz-Plasse are reportedly close to signing on to reprise their roles in Kick-Ass 2. As interesting as that is, I am more curious if they are going to be faithful to the source material when it comes to names. While Mitz-Plasse (he who shall forever be known as McLovin’) played Red Mist in the first film, the comic sequel changes his name to…well, let’s just say it rhymes with Brother Trucker. If you thought the first film pushed boundaries, I promise you are not ready for what Brother Trucker does this time around.
  • George Lucas has announced that he is moving away from Lucasfilm to focus on experimental, smaller films. While this may sound like a reason to fire up the Ewok drums and rain down some Gungan confetti, the bearded-neckless-one is not relinquishing oversight of the Star Wars universe so much as leaving day-to-day operations to Kathleen Kennedy, who can be counted on to ensure Lucas’ legacy of ruining something we all once loved continues onward.

Movieha! - Omaha’s favorite movie podcast

Hello lovelies,

It's time once more for your weekly indulgence, as we have birthed another Movieha for you to pop in your ears. This week we hunger for blood and ice cream, ponder Harrison Ford's replication, look into some Holy Motors, don't hate Men in Black 3, take a dip with Submarine, and drop some poetic verse on your ass. All in a week's work. Listen up and then hit me on the other side for the trailers we mentioned.

On Your Radar: Holy Motors

Don't blame me for this one. My friend, Andrew, pointed out that it is getting huge raves at Cannes. Not that I understand what the Sam Hell is happening here. At best, it's good David Lynch. At worst, it's bad David Lynch. Enjoy.

Netflix Roulette: Sleep Dealer

I'm cheating. I've seen it. I kinda liked it. I wanted Matt to watch it. Keep that our secret, okay?
