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...

Cutting Room for August 10

  • You may know that international treasure and future Nobel Prize winner Jean-Claude Van Damme is ready to burst back onto the scene in the testosterone-and-Depends epic The Expendables 2. 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...

Movieha! - Omaha’s Favorite Movie Podcast

Welcome to another installment of Movieha, the softest, most cuddly thing you've put in your ears since Snuggles the bear was made into Q-tips. This week, we talk up Emma Stone and terrible sequels (those are separate). We also explore the trailer for Starbuck, which has nothing to do with Cylons, geek out over Beasts of the Southern Wild, discover Visioneer, and haiku it up in this beyotch....

Cutting Room for August 3

  • Whereas I simply come out and make feisty editorial comments about the Aurora shootings, some people—cough, Aksarben Cinema (aksarbencinema.com), cough—actually do something to directly help. The theater has begun collecting donations at the box office to be given to the Colorado Organization for Victim Assistance (coloradocrimevictims.org). Think of it like this: If you buy a ticket for The...
