Cutting Room for March 21

  • Don’t worry, I promise I’m not lying and the following film series Israel. Get it? “is-real?” It’s funnier out loud, so remind me to tell it to you again in person. Anyhoodle, Film Streams (filmstreams.org) is collaborating with The Natan and Hannah Schwalb Center for Israel and Jewish Studies at UNO and the University of Nebraska Foundation to bring a downright Judaic film series to The...

Re-enrolling in the Aisles

21 Jump Street

Around the time when Deputy Chief Hardy (Nick Offerman) goes off on a whisker-thinly veiled diatribe about the death of original thought and the lazy recycling of past ideas that kinda sucked to begin with, you realize 21 Jump Street knows how terrible it should  be. In the subsequent scene, when Captain Dickson (Ice Cube) delivers a rousing rant about familiar cliches that ends with the...

Movieha! - Omaha’s favorite movie podcast

Greetings earthlings. We come in peace. Or at least in pieces. This week our audio extravaganza is inexplicably divisive, as Matt and I brawl repeatedly over the sorts of things nobody should really brawl about (including, but not limited to varying opinions on breakfast cereals). This week we discuss fairy tales and garbage pails, a murdering wolf-kid trailer, the problems with John Carter's...

In fact, he once owned a copy of the most valuable comic book in the world: “Action Comics Number 1,” which features the first appearance of Superman and is valued at $1.5 million. In...

Titular (Lack of) Character

John Carter

Although influential in its day, the cupboards of Edgar Rice Burroughs’ “John Carter” have been thoroughly raided and plundered. Not even a lowly can of unwanted beans remains, as everything from Star Wars to Dune has feasted upon the contents of one of the first deliciously pulpy sci-fi icons. Much has been made of the damn near century long struggle to bring Carter to the big screen; sadly,...

Mommie Fearest

We Need to Talk About Kevin

If done poorly, films that attempt to softly contextualize the actions of murderers and sociopaths are more than just failures; they’re dangerous. They inadvertently feed into America’s occasional obsession with fetishizing homicide, perpetuating a culture in which real-life killers can almost always bank on achieving a measure of fame for their crimes. Writer/director Lynne Ramsay’s We Need to...
