Movieha! - Omaha’s favorite movie podcast

There are episodes that flow out of us as easily as a comforting stream of urine after a captivating 3 hour movie. And then there are episodes like this... Recording problems, operator errors (sorry, Matt), plotting issues, and so on and so on and so on. Be not afraid, intrepid adventurers of audio extravagence, I'm sure you're safe in listening about the Scream TV show, Leo in Bat-movies, the...

A Paler Shade of White

Snow White and the Huntsman

A once-beautiful woman who has an uncomfortable relationship with her brother is disintegrating into a skeletal hag. But enough about Angelina Jolie. Snow White and the Huntsman features Charlize Theron rising above her Helen-of-Troy beauty to once more deliver a wicked performance that proves there’s more going on under her hood than atop her perfect chassis.

In this Grimm and gritty...

Sacre Blue

Monsieur Lazhar

For a film that starts with an innocent schoolchild finding his teacher dangling from the classroom rafters by a scarf-turned-noose tied around her neck, Monsieur Lahzar is surprisingly upbeat. And not just for sickos who find schoolteacher suicide to be a great punch-line. This Canadian nominee for Best Foreign Film at last year’s Oscars is a light-handed, wisely simple contemplation of grief,...

Cutting Room for June 1

Leading up to their fifth anniversary on July 27, a momentous occasion that makes me feel older than my desire to eat dinner at 4:30, the theater is celebrating for the next nine weeks, culminating with Jane Fonda coming to town for a fundraiser on July 22. They’re calling it “Nine to Five.”...

Cutting Room for May 25

  • It’s not a good sign when a movie gets delayed. It’s really not a good sign when the cover story is a conversion to 3D. It’s really, really not a good sign when a movie gets delayed about a month before its release after a year of marketing, including a Super Bowl ad, which I’m told can be marginally expensive. G.I. Joe: Retaliation has become G.I. Joe: Retreat, as the movie moved to March...

This week we discuss exorcisms and Alf, explore a trailer that will probably get Matt sued, ponder what has become of Sacha Baron Cohen, analyze a Netflix movie that involves a porn...
