Cutting Room for November 23

  • As someone who still giggles at the arc of Ice Cube’s career, you’ll find me chortling in the corner over this news: he’s gonna write and star in another Friday movie, possibly with Chris Tucker coming back. Tucker hasn’t made a non-Rush Hour movie since the Clinton administration, while Cube has been busy switching from “keeping it real” to “keeping it real…obvious how much I love Coors...

Netflix Random Five: Thanksgiving

What's a thanksgiving movie? I've been wondering that myself. Though I was raised in one of those few Nebraska families that didn't watch football all day, I'm struggling to remember the sort of things we did watch after refrigerating the sacrificial bird's remains.

The simplest answer to the question, for my purposes here, would be movies that take place during thanksgiving – of which there...

Hoover the Damned

J. Edgar

The holidays are here, which means Hollywood is busy unleashing their new batch of prestigious Oscar hopefuls. So it's not much of a surprise to find the great old guard, Clint Eastwood, already camped out at the theaters with J. Edgar, his latest in a stream of totally respectable, slightly distant and ultimately perplexing movies.

In it, Leonardo DiCaprio plays J. Edgar Hoover, the first...

Cutting Room for November 16

  • It’s official: The excitement of the behind the scenes madness surrounding the Oscars has surpassed any excitement ever created by the actual Oscars. Brett Ratner, who is a horrible director and worse human being, has wisely resigned his spot as producer of the Academy Awards in the wake of publicly stating that “Rehearsing is for fags.” Eddie Murphy only agreed to host this year’s...

Movieha - Omaha’s Movie Podcast!

Technology sucks. You can pretend otherwise, but the reality is that it exists only to taunt us. Technology is Lucy, holding the football out to Charlie Brown, telling him "it's okay, you can trust me." And then WHAMMO. Kersplat. Technology will be the death of us all, and we know it, yet we continue to rely on it, slouching ever closer towards our inevitable, horrid demise.

So, yeah, it's...

Shelter Skelter

Take Shelter

Writer/director Jeff Nichols’ Take Shelter is quiet…too quiet. It’s the kind of quiet that makes your collar shrink, the kind that makes you long for something, anything, even an apocalyptic event of global damnation to finally just happen. And believe it or not, that’s a compliment.

Take Shelter is part meditation on the mentally taxing responsibilities of a modern family man, complete with...
