Glee-ve It Alone

Rock of Ages

Let’s not do this, okay? Let’s not use nostalgia to forgive the unspeakable things we did to fringe, denim and the musical scale in the 1980s. Other than the 1985 Chicago Bears and that time Michael Jackson’s hair caught on fire, there is nothing even worth remembering about that shameful decade, when men were Men at Work and women jazzercised.

Rock of Ages nearly realizes that those 10 years...

Indecent Bro-posal

That's My Boy

That’s My Boy isn’t just so bad that you would rather play a fun game of “scratch my retina with chicken wire” for 90 minutes; it’s so bad that writer David Caspe and director Sean Anders should be legally prosecuted for crimes against humanity. If this is what we’re capable of as creatures living in a (relatively) free society who have evolved to the point where we are afforded the luxury of...

Cutting Room for June 8

  • Because this year’s College World Series takes place a hop, skip and a jump (and you can probably leave out the jump) from the front doors of Film Streams, the theater goes into a different scheduling cycle starting June 15. On gamedays, one hour prior to the first game’s start time, the theater converts into the artiest sports bar you’ve ever been to, complete with beer and a huge screen on...

Creation Miffed

Prometheus

Without warning, critics that were once songbirds chirping with anticipation about director Ridley Scott’s return to sci-fi with Prometheus have turned into a savage pack of eagles relentlessly devouring the film’s liver. Honestly, the titular metaphor is almost too perfect, as Scott’s return to the universe he helped create with Alien has been blasted for essentially “not knowing its place,”...

Movieha! - Omaha’s favorite movie podcast

There are episodes that flow out of us as easily as a comforting stream of urine after a captivating 3 hour movie. And then there are episodes like this... Recording problems, operator errors (sorry, Matt), plotting issues, and so on and so on and so on. Be not afraid, intrepid adventurers of audio extravagence, I'm sure you're safe in listening about the Scream TV show, Leo in Bat-movies, the...

A Paler Shade of White

Snow White and the Huntsman

A once-beautiful woman who has an uncomfortable relationship with her brother is disintegrating into a skeletal hag. But enough about Angelina Jolie. Snow White and the Huntsman features Charlize Theron rising above her Helen-of-Troy beauty to once more deliver a wicked performance that proves there’s more going on under her hood than atop her perfect chassis.

In this Grimm and gritty...

Sacre Blue

Monsieur Lazhar

For a film that starts with an innocent schoolchild finding his teacher dangling from the classroom rafters by a scarf-turned-noose tied around her neck, Monsieur Lahzar is surprisingly upbeat. And not just for sickos who find schoolteacher suicide to be a great punch-line. This Canadian nominee for Best Foreign Film at last year’s Oscars is a light-handed, wisely simple contemplation of grief,...
