Hit and Run

Everybody needs a little help. Writer/director/actor Dax Shepard could have probably used another writer, a third director (David Palmer already co-directed) and a better group of actors for Hit and Run, a movie that is a cinematic traffic accident with multiple fatalities. Comedy, drama and action were all pronounced dead at the scene, and romance passed away on the way to the hospital....

Premium Rush

Recyclists
Premium Rush rides on cliches
Ryan Syrek

This is not a good movie. It’s important to establish that early on so that you can understand how an appreciation of its moving parts doesn’t fully remove one central thesis: Premium Rush is crap. It may, however, be somewhat fun crap, depending on your tolerance for scenery chewing, “look how current we are” cultural references and...

I See Clay People

Paranorman

Before Pixar flexed its artistic muscle (a muscle they could stand to exercise more frequently these days), the message in American animated films ranged from “always be true to yourself” to “always be true to yourself and also get heterosexually married.” Paranorman isn’t about self-confidence or individual expression. It’s about how people can be huge, cruel dicks. Specifically, when...

Cutting Room for August 17

  • Having met him once through green screen magic, Tom Hanks now wants to get to the bottom of who really offed JFK. Parkland is an indie drama produced by the man once known as the “nicest in Hollywood” and now known as simply “that one guy from that awful Julia Roberts movie.” It’s unclear if Hanks will star, but I think I have a suspicion as to who the film may conclude is the killer. Does...

Chinese Art Attack

Ai Weiwei: Never Sorry

It’s impossible not to watch Ai Weiwei, dubbed by some as the “Chinese Andy Warhol,” tell his motherland to eff right on off without thinking one thing first and foremost: That dude has got some Buddha-sized stones. Although Ai may possess the street art cred and pop culture popularity of Warhol, paintings of a Campbell’s soup can never inspired fear in the heart of an oppressive regime; oh,...

Movieha! - Omaha’s Favorite Movie Podcast

For what can only be described as no damn good reason, last week's Movieha! (with the clever title "joy puking") was our most popular ever. We have no idea how to replicate that success. Was it an interest in vomit? Who knows. The point is, we're going to try to follow it up with a (sometimes creepy) discussion of Jennifer Lawrence's upcoming body of work, Josh Radnor's latest trailer, Total...
