Cutting Room for May 4

  • Slimmer though he may be, Jonah Hill has developed a new hunger…to be taken seriously. Rumor has it that he is in talks with Martin Scorsese to appear in The Wolf of Wall Street, which sadly is not a documentary about the jerks who trade futures being devoured by wildlife. The adaptation of a memoir of the same name is sure to do wonders for our image of brokers, as it details the life of a...

Like a Joss

The Avengers

This was going to be a rabid, frothing defense of the superhero genre, complete with impassioned pleas that appealed to cinematic intellectuals who are apt to dismiss such films. But Tom Hiddleston, who ironically plays the evil Loki in The Avengers, got there first…and he straight-up crushed it. Damn you, Loki! Does your villainy know no end?!

In his unreasonably eloquent opinion piece in...

In Need of Altar-ations

The Five-Year Engagement

Complaining about the length of a film can be a cop-out, a lazy way to avoid dissecting actual content in favor of basically whining about how valuable your free time is. But jokes about The Five-Year Engagement being long enough to legally make its audience common-law married aside, the duration of this and other Judd Apatow–produced movies has become a discussion point of substantial merit.

Cutting Room for April 27

  • Ever since Kickstarter.com was kicked out of the Internet’s womb, there have been endless film projects of various levels of consequence that have sought funding there; thus, it takes a lot to get my attention. But you know what gets my attention? Pickles. This is why I want to steer you towards The Persian Pickle Club, which you can help make a reality by going to their page at...

Movieha! - Omaha’s favorite movie podcast

Here we go again, all up in your ears with a marginally appropriate, hugely hilarious investigation of the movie world as we see it. This week we probe some number twos (as in sequels), we ponder the hipping and hopping, we gush over a certain Cabin in the Woods, we digest some Human Centipede 2, and we deliver unto you some haikus for the upcoming movies this week. How can you not listen? Hit...

Anatomically Correct

Bully

There is a conversation about bullying that is desperately needed in this country. Unfortunately, Bully seemingly isn’t interested in being part of it. Director Lee Hirsch’s film, although clearly well-intentioned, preaches to the choir with pedestrian truisms that tug on heart strings but ultimately add nothing of substance to a potentially important dialogue.

Sure, it’s impossible not to be...

Not So Fast, Rick Santorum
