Movieha - Omaha’s Movie Podcast!

This week is a week like no other for Movieha. We tackle the terrible Bellflower, pontificate on what makes the perfect Robocop, ponder a big question, and craft some fine haikus. All in a week's work. Give it a listen and meet me on the other side for the trailers we discussed.

On Your Radar: John Dies at the End

I owe Don Coscarelli for making Bubba-ho-tep. Because of that movie, I got to actually talk with Bruce Campbell, who is pretty much every bit as cool as you would imagine him to be. In lieu of that, I'm pretty much in for whatever Coscarelli throws at us next, even if I don't understand what the Sam Hell is going on. Such is the case with John Dies at the End, a film that looks friggin' captivating, even if I don't know much about it. Check it out for yourself!

 

Netflix Roulette: Sherlock

I am 2 episodes in to this 3-episode maxi-mini-series, composed of 3 hour-and-a-half movies. The BBC just CRUSHES stuff like this. If you haven't seen it yet, catch up with us!

Cutting Room for September 28

  • Your ears do so much for you without complaining. The least you can do is treat them to Film Streams’ upcoming Silents in Concert series at the Ruth Sokolof Theater. Now, don’t let the oxymoron-itude of “silent concerts” freak you out. Starting on Tuesday, Oct 4 at 7 pm, the Alloy Orchestra will perform new music to a series of their favorite silent short films. This will be followed on Friday, Oct 21 at 7 pm by a screening of Nosferatu with live music by Others, a band composed of Todd Fink (The Faint), Orenda Fink (Azure Ray) and Ben Brodin (Before the Toast and Tea). There are four other films in the series that lasts through December, so hit up filmstreams.org for more info. If you don’t, your ears may use their collective bargaining powers to strike and drop those sunglasses right off your face.
  • Film Streams is also throwing a party for a dirty girl. Wait. That should read Film Streams is throwing a party for Dirty Girl, a comedy directed by Abe Sylvia. On Oct 17 at 7 p.m. the Ruth Sokolof Theater will host Sylvia for a Q&A along with producer Jana Edelbaum and actor Nicholas D’Agosto, a native Omahan! There will be chow and booze provided by Omaha Steaks and Upstream Brewing Company. Now this is one Dirty Girl celebration everyone can get behind.
  • Blake Lively has been offered the lead in the upcoming movie version of Pride and Prejudice and Zombies. Given her extensive talent, I can only assume she’ll be playing the role of one of the “ands.”

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.
