Cutting Room for September 21

Movieha - Omaha’s Movie Podcast!

Here we go again! Sorry for the delay in getting this here. I'm going to blame my Contagion-induced phobia of touching anything. Keyboards looked like petri dishes for like a full week. But better late than never, right? In this installment, Matt and I dish about Mel Gibson's hilarious career choice, contemplate things On Your Radar and in our Netflix Roulette wheel, and still have time to drop...

Movieha - Omaha’s Movie Podcast!

This week's episode is stuffed to the gills with our measured reaction to more George Lucas meddling, a thorough discussion of a woman with four first names, my obsession with Donald Glover, an investigation into a French Liam Neeson, and all the movie haikus you can handle. Give it a listen and we'll meet up on the other side with the trailers.

Cutting Room for September 7

In direct disobedience of The Beatles, Film Streams (filmstreams.org) has opted not to save things that are free for either the birds or the bees, choosing instead to share them with us twice over.
