The Trip

The Trip isn’t a movie.

That’s not criticism: It’s actually a six-episode BBC television series that was edited into a two-hour movie for easier transport and consumption. Having watched the edited version of the modestly endearing but repetitive antics of Steve Coogan and Rob Brydon, the thought of folks tuning in for six straight weeks seems a bit daffy. Without any narrative backbone, the...

Cutting Room for August 3

• If you want to find an overly testosterone-d, oddly puffy, former action movie icon in the next few months, you’ll have to book a trip to Bulgaria. The Expendables 2 is shooting, and the rumor mill has dropped some steaming casting news on the sidewalk. Supposedly, Sylvester Stallone, Jason Statham, Dolph Lundgren, Mickey Rourke, Terry Crews, Jet Li and Bruce Willis will now be joined by John...

Divorce, Carell Style

Crazy, Stupid, Love

Without a single scene of slapstick puking, accidental drug ingestion or manic violence, Crazy, Stupid, Love, the new movie from directors Glenn Ficarra and John Requa (I Love You, Phillip Morris), feels like some kind of long-lost comedy relic. That's meant in the best possible sense. Although it honestly isn't very crazy or stupid, as is the current comedic trend, it's still pretty funny. And...

In Love & Out

Beginners

When his 75-year-old father, Hal, suddenly announces “I’m gay,” it’s no coming out party for son Oliver who has identity-commitment issues of his own.

The story of Hal (Christopher Plummer) and Oliver (Ewan McGregor) is intertwined in director Mike Mills’ exceptional auto-bio film, Beginners. Ironically, the movie begins with Hal’s death and Oliver being left to cope with demons of his own....

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...
