Movieha - Omaha’s Movie Podcast (June 10)

X-Men: First Class

Welcome to the second of two podcastical experiences we have birthed through our mouth wombs this week! We had a crossover with Two-Headed Nerd this week to discuss X-Men: First Class...which was a rambunctious display of verbal tomfoolery in which everyone got really animated and loud. It's kind of like hanging out with the four of us at any given time. What you see below this text is our...

Movieha - Omaha’s Movie Podcast (June 3)

Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides

Heya Movieha enthusiasts! Welcome to another podcastical adventure in which we invent the term "Woo-wah the ba-doo-dah" and Matt makes robot noises. We also talk about movies, and FINALLY get that new segment squeezed all the way into the podcast proper. Oh, and we have new music bumps to, thanks to producer extraordinaire Matthew Lockwood esquire. Meet you on the other side with our weekly grab...

Star Empowerment

Potiche

Film icon Catherine Deneuve's first major role was as an umbrella shop sales girl in the 1964 Jacques Demy film The Umbrellas of Cherbourg. Now, nearly a half-century later (with a enormously successful career in between), she can be found playing the unappreciated wife of an umbrella factory owner in Potiche, the latest picture from François Ozon. Potiche is French slang for “trophy wife,” and...

Hair of the Dawgs

The Hangover Part II

A working theory: There is no script for The Hangover Part II. There is only a script for the first Hangover with white out on some of the verbs and nouns. After their first unabashed gross-out out-grossed all other comedies ever made, writer/director Todd Phillips and writers Craig Mazin and Scot Armstrong dropped a deuce on such pedestrian concepts as “originality” and “character...

The Oregon Fail

Meek's Cutoff

The epitome of form as message, the silent and sparse first seven minutes of director Kelly Reichardt’s Meek’s Cutoff quietly contrasts the brutality of life on the Oregon Trail in 1845 with lyric and beautiful glimpses of unspoiled American landscapes. The film’s fitting first spoken words, a Christian dinner prayer recited by a child, gracefully remind viewers of the Puritanical fire that...

Gotta Serve Somebody

Of Gods and Men

Although Of Gods and Men, a dramatization of the fate of Trappist monks in a civil war-torn Algeria in the mid-‘90s resonates deeply with recent history in the Middle East, its power and scope is much broader than that. French director Xavier Beauvois and co-writer Etienne Comar combine themes of colonization and rebellion, poverty and corruption, terrorism and pacifism into a riveting, yet...

Girl’s Club

Bridesmaids

Bridesmaids is the anti-chick-flick. There are no hopeless romantics here; no star-crossed lovers or coincidental interventions from Cupid. It's a picture about love, friendship and change, but without any of the frothy cuteness or frilly emotional waste. There is, however, plenty of tennis court violence, mile-high pill-popping and girl-on-girl vomiting. And, believe it or not, it finds time...
