Cutting Room for July 27

 

  • Charlie Kaufman’s only directorial effort, the genius work of art that is Synecdoche, New York, broke my brain in half. Thus, announcement of his forthcoming sophomore effort fills me with equal parts glee and a desire to purchase of copious amounts of aspirin. It comes with the inauspicious title Frank or Francis and the simplistic plotline, “a volatile back and forth between a film...

Movieha - Omaha’s Favorite Movie Podcast!

Welcome once more to Movieha, the podcast voted most likely to change your life (that vote had an accuracy of 0-100%). This week sees another minor squabble between myself and Matt Lockwood, as well as a truly horrid Netflix pick, some particularly newsy news, and more crowd-pleasing haikus (because what pleases people like haikus? Answer: Nothing.) Listen up and meet me on the other side for...

Poetry Versus

Louder Than a Bomb

Although awarded points for its use in wooing the opposite sex, poetry has long carried a cool index below the cultural Mendoza line. Emotionally resonant? Yes. Culturally significant? Sure. Bad ass? Not so much.

In-Your-Face Race Film for the New Millennium

Make no mistake about it, filmmaker Omowale Akintunde intends for his 2010 racially-charged Omaha-made feature, Wigger, to provoke a strong response.

After premiering here last year, and in limited theatrical release around the country, the dynamic looking and sounding film returns for a 7 p.m., July 28 red carpet screening at the Twin Creek Cinema. It's back just in time for Native Omaha...

Cutting Room for July 20

  • Although “Blossom” trained us to believe something labeled a “special program” is going to tackle icky molestation or teen drinking issues, that’s not what Marcus Theaters means by “special summer programming.” Starting July 28, Village Pointe Cinema will offer various theatrical and musical performances, including the Globe Theatre’s performance of both parts of “Henry IV” and soprano Renee...

Movieha - Omaha’s Movie Podcast!

Okay, so here's the skinny: Our little site here has been undergoing some back-end transformations, which sounds way, way dirtier than it actually is. Those backend problems have prevented me from dumping (I have got to watch my mouth) these podcast links on the Reader site for awhile now. This also means you haven't been able to see any of the fine, fine trailers we've talked about. So, I'm...
