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...

  • Film Streams (filmstreams.org) isn’t satisfied with entertaining you; they also want to make you live forever. At least, that’s what I assume the intent is behind their film series titled “Forever Young.” Featuring family and children’s films, the series is underway with Make Believe, a coming-of-age story about young magicians, already screening on Saturdays, Sundays and Thursdays through...

Movieha - Omaha’s Movie Podcast!

Once more with feeling, Matt and I try to heat up your eardrums with conversations of the kind only our demented minds can cook up. We talk about Jason Statham's bald sweatiness, how Aronofsky can follow up facilitating Natalie Portman's pregnancy, check out a trailer for a drug-fueled flick, chat about a guy named Pinkie, gush over "Sherlock," and play another round of "Laundered Movie Quotes"...

Attack Lads

The Ides of March

A reminder: Bobbing for apples in a sports stadium urinal trough may be less vile than becoming a professional politician. If Aaron Sorkin’s sorely missed “West Wing” was a weekly fairy tale of governmental grace, The Ides of March is a campfire ghost story where every player is the bogeyman. Populated exclusively with characters only passingly familiar with the definition of integrity, the...

  • Depending on your tastes, consider the following a suggestion or a warning: Twilight is taking over Aksarben Cinema (askarbencinema.com) during the month of November. Every Tuesday night at 7 p.m. throughout the month, the theater will screen a past installment of the fangs and fornication series for just five bucks a pop. If you’d rather Twi-hard all at once, for just $25 you can catch a...
