Movieha - Omaha’s Movie Podcast!

Hey there eager listeners. Sorry for the delay in posting this here but we had some disagreements with our technology this week. We were all "post this" and the internets were all "um, you should shut up" and we were all "we're the boss of you, machine" and the internets were all "that's what you think." This went that way for awhile, but eventually, man won! So now you can dump it into your...

The Making of Rum Diary

During my last visit with Hunter S. Thompson the discussion turned to his “long lost novel” The Rum Diary. We were sitting in his kitchen at Owl Farm sipping Wild Turkey.

“I’m in a weird position.  I’m seeing films about me on television and people writing books about me.  It’s very eerie to live like that!  I try to ignore it.”

Hunter wrote The Rum Diary while still in his 20s and living...

Short and Swede

The Black Power Mixtape 1967-1975

When recollecting on the volatile quest for racial equality in the United States during the late 1960s and early 1970s, the obvious first question that springs to mind is “What did Sweden think?” No? Must be just me then…

The Black Power Mixtape 1967-1975 may seek to answer a question nobody asked, but that doesn’t make it any less compelling. Director Göran Olsson has stitched together...

Cutting Room for October 19

  • When the British-slang-infused, alien invasion gem Attack the Block slams onto video in a week or so and finally ascends to its rightful place on the throne of recent cult classics, I won’t say “I told you so.” I’ll say, “I told you so, bruvva.” Now comes word that director Joe Cornish may not be done delivering urban sci-fi comedy goodness. Speaking at the New York Comic Convention, Cornish...

Ice Station Zoiks!

The Thing

Most modern filmmakers prefer two-headed CGI alien-monsters over spooky atmospheric tension, assuming that too much atmosphere would leave today’s younger demographic texting “bored lol” until the theater was lit to daylight by their phones. Matthijs van Heijningen Jr, director of The Thing, is no exception. Although he has created a serviceable prequel to the 1982 John Carpenter flick of the...

Kosher Dull Picture

Footloose

Goofy can be an art form, and silliness is sometimes a lubricant that can grease the squeaky wheels of joyful entertainment. Sadly, writer/director Craig Brewer’s remake of Footloose isn’t just goofy or silly; it’s also stupid…like, really stupid. Sure, no copies of the original film are stored in the Louvre, but that flick had some bizarre natural charisma that made it endearing. This version...

Episode 25 - Pork Meat Will Be Doing So

This week's episode is a veritable all-you-can-eat buffet of entertainment, with filling dishes that include the latest movie news, a bad-ass trailer for an upcoming smaller film, a dissection of Ryan Gosling's accent, a look into Paul Giamatti's hairpiece, and two dark confessions alongside a haiku tray for dessert. EAT UP and meet me on the other side for all the trailers we talk about this...
