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.

Movieha - Omaha’s Movie Podcast!

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...
