Hey there loyal listeners, welcome to another installment of the best thing you can put in your ears besides Q-tips and tongues. This week we outdo ourselves...and you can take that as a good thing or a bad thing.

The Perils of Motherhood

This may sound like a joke to anyone who's seen Mommie Dearest (and believes what they've seen), but legendary hanger-hater Joan Crawford won her Oscar for playing a woman who surely has to be among the saintliest of silver screen single mothers.

In Mildred Pierce (1945), Crawford plays the titular heroine, a California divorcee struggling to make ends meet and raise a couple of daughters....

Kung Ow Kickin’

The Raid: Redemption

Sometimes, life is simple. If you don’t like beef, don’t order a rib-eye. If you don’t like stale, recycled jokes, don’t watch CBS sitcoms. If you don’t like action movies, avoid The Raid: Redemption like a television-phobic vegan would avoid the stuff mentioned above.

Writer/director Gareth Evans, who admittedly did much more to earn the latter half of his hyphened title than the former,...

Camp Crystal Fake-Out

The Cabin in the Woods

What’s funny is that writer Joss Whedon and writer/director Drew Goddard are going to get praised for how original The Cabin in the Woods is.

Cutting Room for April 11

  • I’m a sucker for romantic comedies. Oh, I could try to shield my masculinity with a denial, but the reality is that I have, on more than one occasion, failed to turn the channel when Win a Date with Tad Hamilton was one. So it’s with joy that I announce Omaha will soon have its own horse in that genre race. On Thursday, April 19 at 7 pm, Aksarben Cinema (aksarbencinema.com) will host a...
