Cutting Room for July 18

I get disproportionately excited for horse racing. It’s either the latent degenerate gambler in me or I just like ponies. Either way, I’m excited for 50 to 1, which opens at the Majestic Cinema of Omaha on July 25. It follows the story of Mine That Bird, who was a Kentucky Derby champion (even if his name is grammatically maddening). The movie stars Skeet Ulrich, Christian Kane, William Devane...

Fuzzy Focus

Dawn of the Planet of the Apes

Time has whittled mainstream memory of the original late 1960s/early 1970s Planet of the Apes franchise down to an image of Charlton Heston’s clenched fist and the Statue of Liberty tanning her torchy top half on the beach. However, the original series was actually quite subversive and fascinating. It was compelling science fiction that occasionally skinny dipped in psychedelic waters.

Cutting Room for July 11

Throughout August, Film Streams at the Ruth Sokolof Theater will lie to fans of Kansas University sports teams. Wait, no, that’s not right. Sorry, it looks like they will be holding screenings of We Always Lie to Strangers and Jayhawkers, with Q&A sessions with their respective directors. You can see where I was confused. On Thursday, Aug 7 at 7 pm, you can catch David Boone Wilson’s Branson...

“We’re Not a Girl Band”

We Are the Best

Punk was always as much about the mentality as the sound, as much about rebellion for rebellion’s sake as it was disorganized noise.  We Are the Best (Vi är bast) sports a cocksure swagger in its title alone, and rightfully so. It is a boisterous rejoinder to the usual simplistic, tame depiction of adolescent girls. Writer/director Lukas Moodysson has made a movie that isn’t just infused with...

Cutting Room for July 4

There are two movies whose rabid fandom I’ve never understood: The Goonies and Hocus Pocus. The former has had a sequel in the works as long as Dr. Dre has been promising to drop “Detox.” The latter had a sequel rumor bubble in its cauldron this week, one that claimed Tina Fey was making. Turns out that’s not true. What is true is that Fey is working on a completely independent new witch movie...

Ice, Ice Maybe

Snowpiercer

I’m not saying that the impoverished are going to grab axes and violently murder the wealthy elite. But I’m also not NOT saying that…

Writer/director Joon-ho Bong’s Snowpiercer does what the sci-fi genre does better than any other cinematic medium: examines modern life by asking a surreal “what if.” The “what if” in this case being a metaphorical examination of the redistribution of wealth and...
