Movieha - Omaha’s Movie Podcast!

Hey gang!

This week's Movieha is very special...and not like a very special episode of "Blossom" or "Full House." No, this week we dive into our best and worst of the year from 2011! I know we're a little late, but that's because we wanted to make sure we saw EVERYTHING we could first. So, listen to our picks, and let us know yours either below or on one of the many, many, many places to...

Contrabland

Contraband

by Matt Lockwood

Let's see a show of hands: Who loves Marky Mark and his funky bunch of acting skills? Is it just my hand raised? I can't see..the lights are awfully dim in here.

Well, even if I am the only one, I have no shame and raise my hand high. In submission to my disorder, this afternoon I wandered out to my local cinema to enjoy a matinee showing of Contraband. The movie picks up...

Picking at a Mole

Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy

You can tell that Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy, an adaptation of the classic John le Carré novel, is a more accurate depiction of British espionage than James Bond films because instead of rippling abs and shaken martinis, it’s potbellies and comb-overs.  Set in the Cold War, director Tomas Alfredson’s film suggests all that stood between England and the Russkie menace were men who looked like...

<p>  Fullmetal Alchemist: The Sacred Star of Milos</p>
Cutting Room for January 11

  • It’s like my grandmother always said, “Recognition is nice, but cold, hard cash is even better. Get yours.” Nana rolled hard. I guess Film Streams (filmstreams.org) doesn’t have to worry much about that advice, as they were not only recognized by the National Endowment for the Arts, that acknowledgement came in the form of a $20,000 grant to help support the theater’s repertory series. And...

Modern Times

Playtime

Whenever I'm asked what my favorite film is, Jacques Tati's Playtime is the title I blurt out. And when all's said and done, that's for one simple reason: there's just no other movie experience like it.

Playtime is a lot of things. It's a virtually wordless movie that's inconceivable without its sounds. A razor-sharp reproach of reckless modernization, delivered almost invisibly, with a touch...

Pedestrian Equestrian

War Horse

Steven Spielberg is an unrepentant schmaltz addict, and War Horse may represent his biggest binge to date. Crammed with comforting cliches and overstuffed with sentiment, this lifelessly dangling chunk of Oscar bait feels purely calculated to prey on the emotionally vulnerable. The rest of us calloused souls are forced to endure a pretty looking but ultimately shallow journey of a...

Cutting Room for January 4

  • My excitement for Thor 2 has declined from “Odin’s beard” to “Loki’s muttonchops,” as Patty Jenkins has been taken from the director’s seat. Thus, instead of getting to see what a talented female filmmaker may do with a big budget sequel, we get to see what Alan Taylor, director of some episodes of “Game of Thrones,” can predictably do. Word has it that Natalie Portman, or Natpo as I call...
