Movieha! - Omaha’s Favorite Movie Podcast

NEW MOVIEHA?! I won't keep you from a discussion of the trailer for Grabbers, the Aurora shooting, Grabbers,The Dark Knight Rises, or Tyrannosaur. We talk about stuff, you listen to us talk about stuff. It's a good deal. Hit us up after you listen for a few trailers.

On Your Radar: Grabbers

I love creature features. This looks like a throwback. I like throwbacks. So long as they aren't...

Cutting Room for July 27

  • If ever there was a time Nebraskans were amenable to discussions of an impending water crisis, this would be the time. So it’s a good thing that Film Streams (filmstreams.org) and the Nebraska Chapter of Engineers Without Borders are collaborating on a discussion and screening of the documentary Last Call at the Oasis on Aug 28 at 7 pm. Although oil is the resource most people think of when...

Savage Beauty and The Beasts

Beasts of the Southern Wild

They should hand out oxygen tanks before each screening of Beasts of the Southern Wild because writer/director Benh Zeitlin’s debut feature film takes your breath in the very first scene and plays keep away with it for more than 90 minutes. When people kvetch about the abundance of remakes and sequels while whining about how “there are just no new ideas anymore,” tape their eyes open and play...

Who Watches The Watch, Man?

The Watch

Seeing as how it has an extraterrestrial plot, let’s describe The Watch using an astronomical metaphor. Ben Stiller, Vince Vaughn, Jonah Hill and Richard Ayoade are like comedic planets that orbit a central, burning sun…and that sun is made entirely of penis jokes. Someone spent $70 million to make a movie in which aliens only die if you shoot them in the pee-pee, in which an alien is killed by...

Movieha! - Omaha’s Favorite Movie Podcast

Hey gang.

It's a sad, sensitive day, I know (given what happened in Aurora...which has spilled into movie news sites the way the Sandusky case spilled into sports). If you'd like a breather from that discussion, we joke around in this podcast for you. It's fun with movies, fun talking about movie stuff, and fun considering the stuff around movie stuff. Maybe it's what you need? I'm just...

Cutting Room for July 20

Before I start the strangest column I’ve written since Cutting Room began almost a decade ago, a reminder this is MY opinion and mine alone, as per usual. Gang, let’s talk about the tragedy in Aurora. More specifically, let’s talk about how NOT to talk about the tragedy in Aurora.

  • Take down your Facebook profile picture with a ribbon and Batman in it. Now. Your intentions may be holy but...

Got Ham?

The Dark Knight Rises

From Christian Bale’s bark to Hans Zimmer’s “gonna getcha” score, if director Christopher Nolan has driven one point home in his Bat-films, it has been this: “Take my films seriously, yo.” From meditations on the fine line between vengeance and justice to the moral ambiguity of using high-end technology “for the greater good,” this Bat-trilogy has cleverly and successfully fused “real world”...
