Cutting Room for August 24

  • Remember how you were just thinking, “How can I go on living without the prospect of at least one more Rambo movie?” Good news, my depressed and strangely Stallone obsessed amigo! There’s a script for Rambo: Last Stand, which has been likened to the western classic, Unforgiven. I can only assume this comparison is based on a similar number of craggy faces, wrinkles and AARP/NRA members. We...

Death, Interrupted

The Interrupters

We’re no Windy City, but Omaha has endured the cold gusts of murder enough to feel sick, enough for The Interrupters to resonate and resonate hard. Director Steve James, whose Hoop Dreams still ranks among the most poignant of recorded nonfiction, has again found a way to seamlessly weave narrative and message, to simultaneously break hearts and raise spirits. Working with best-selling author...

Cutting Room for August 17

  • Whether it’s because of the quotable dialogue, the copious use of Michelle Pfeiffer in her prime or our inherent ability to accept gangsters despite their being terrible, terrible people, Scarface is massively beloved. Now, for the first time in a long while, you can see all the coke-snorting and murder on the big screen, like God and Brian De Palma intended. Both AMC Oakview 24 and AMC Star...

We're still the only podcast out there rocking haikus to preview this week's upcoming releases. There's probably a reason for that. Give it a listen and we'll meet...
