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”...

Movieha! - Omaha’s Favorite Movie Podcast

Hey folks! It's time again for you to roll around in some Movieha. I know you usually tear into this on Fridays, but I figured a Monday could only be improved by a heaping helping of Ha. We talk about the Cumberbatch, contemplate Fassbender's tool, explore what Compliance means, diss Moonrise Kingdom, resurrect our feelings for Resurrect Dead, and spew haikus. Enjoy!

Cutting Room for July 13

  • In news cool enough to make you swoon, weak-in-the-knees or light-headed, the Omaha-based band The Faint have been announced as the curators for the 2012 Local Filmmakers Showcase to be held Oct 19-25 at Film Streams (filmstreams.org).

Taylor Can’t Kitsch a Break

Savages

Ask former “Friday Night Lights” actor Taylor Kitsch what he did this summer, and if he’s honest, he will tell you he set his career on fire. Yes, let us weep for Kitsch and his Greek God physique, overflowing bank accounts and unquestionable green light to mate with whomever he wishes! In the span of 2-plus months he has flopped (John Carter), floundered (Battleship) and flubbed (Savages) his...

Cutting Room for July 6

  • The most esteemed thespian to ever sometimes use a number as a last name, Andre Benjamin (nee Andre 3000), is starring in the Jimi Hendrix biography, All Is By My Side, which will feature zero Jimi Hendrix songs. Because no deal could be reached with those who control the rights to Hendrix’s music, the film will have him playing covers of songs by The Beatles and Muddy Waters among others....

Movieha! - Omaha’s Favorite Movie Podcast

This has been one weird week. Having the fourth of July fall on a Wednesday gave us a week that felt like it had two Mondays (boo) and two Fridays (yay). Sadly, you only get one Movieha. This week we discuss Tyler Perry branching out into outer space, which is where Starship Troopers live. We geek-gasm over The Man with the Iron Fists trailer, in all its eye-punching glory. I cry a bit over The...

Never Go Full Burton

Moonrise Kingdom

It’s not writer/director Wes Anderson’s fault that since he burst on the scene with what is still his best film, Bottle Rocket, he has become a hipster demigod. Even when The Royal Tenenbaums hit, tattoo mustaches on fingers and scarves in the summer were but a glimmer in the eyes of youth who would go on to appropriate the word irony in a way that is ironically ironic. Throw a pebble at an...
