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...

Cutting Room for November 9

  • From the “Because You Demanded It” File: Jennifer Lopez is producing a live-action version of Where in the World is Carmen Sandiego? Originally a video game with the sick desire to actually educate players about geography, the elusive titular character had a game show in the 1990s and an animated cartoon before fading into an oblivion that made said title ironic. Although Lopez has not...

Beat on the Bard

Anonymous

In what can only be explained as an embarrassing oversight, Anonymous was not released anonymously. This maniacally boring period drama was directed by none other than Roland Emmerich, helmer of Independence Day and 1998's Godzilla, and a member (alongside Michael Bay, Brett Ratner and others) of the "Fast Food Filmmakers Club."

This means that his movies are (usually) harmless fun, but not...

Cutting Room for November 2

  • Challenging their status as respected visionaries, The Coen Brothers (who are admittedly far, far smarter than yours truly), have determined that Justin Timberlake isn’t the colossal failure as an actor that the vast majority of his IMDB page would suggest. The legendary auteurs are pursuing the sexy-backer for a major role in Inside Llewellyn Davis, which is thankfully about folk rock in...

Fear and Loathing Abroad

The Rum Diary

First, a confession: Although I'm familiar with the life and antics of renegade “gonzo” journalist Hunter S. Thompson, I've never actually read any of his work. It's an education gap I hope to correct soon, but in the meantime, at least I have The Rum Diary, the latest screen adaptation of a Thompson title and the latest characterization of the man by his longtime friend Johnny Depp.

In...
