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.

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...

But did you know that he’s eager to make another sequel? That’s right: Double Impact 2 is finally more than just a personal dream of mine, as the “cerebellum from Belgium” has written a draft. You read that...

Selfish Since He Was Bourne

The Bourne Legacy

With his rampant sex addiction and potential alcoholism, no one would consider James Bond a saint. But, hey, at least he’s out there trying to save the world from a bomb, giant laser or bad economic investments (gotta love modern “reality-based” action movies). The Bourne series, on the other hand, follows a “me-first” operative willing to endanger, if not outright kill with his recklessness,...

Comedians United

The Campaign

It seems like an odd way to start a review for a movie in which Will Ferrell tries to make Zach Galifianakis touch his testicles on stage during a debate, but The Campaign has a clever message. Writers Chris Henchy and Shawn Harwell move beyond the standard skewing of attack-ad politics and candidates that are either incompetent or lecherous. Oh, sure, they have fun with the Scarecrow and the...
