The Bicycle Grief

The Kid with the Bike

In what is essentially Oliver French Twist, writers/directors Jean-Pierre Dardenne and Luc Dardenne definitively prove that life in France is more than just croissant-eating and Muslim-hating. In soul-crushing fashion, this muted tale of an unwanted, unloved boy is simultaneously gripping and dull. It’s hard to pull off such a dichotomy, but these are a people who turned Jerry Lewis from clown...

Cutting Room for May 18

  • It’s not enough that Ryan Reynolds has sarcasm and abs sharp enough to cut you, but now he’s never going to die. Forget how stalkerish that sounds and focus on the following: Highlander is getting a remake possibly featuring Captain Sassy Abs. Aside from the tsunami of “I thought there could be only one” jokes, the thing to focus on is who will play the Sean Connery role. My vote is for...

Cutting Room for May 11

  • Bogey and Bacall? Amateurs. Hepburn and Tracy? As if. All of cinema has been waiting for this moment. Cameron Diaz. Benicio Del Toro. Don’t worry, it gets even better. The movie is Agent: Century 21, which is perhaps the first movie to have product placement in its title. And the plot sees Diaz as a real estate agent captured and sent on some kind of adventure by a Mexican drug lord played...

Movieha! - Omaha’s favorite movie podcast

I can hardly believe it. A year ago, Matt Lockwood and I began the crazy process of recording a weekly audio extravaganza to drop on your ears. And a year later, neither of us have lost interest enough to walk away. If you knew our short attention spans, you'd be amazed. So before I tell you the goodness you can enjoy on this, our anniversary, I would ask that you take a moment to consider WHAT...

Burton Did a Bad, Bad Thing

Dark Shadows

Seriously? This is what it’s come to? Johnny Depp, that delightfully oddball talent who once worked with John Waters and Jim Jarmusch, has reached the point in his career where he’s in movies that climax with a witch barfing on him. For real?

After Alice in Wonderland saw director and apparently terrible friend, Tim Burton, reanimate the corpse of Depp using CGI to puppeteer his body into the...

Yo Ho No

The Pirates! Band of Misfits

It’s hard not to mention Chicken Run without wanting to make a joke about Mel Gibson voicing a rooster. And while that may be the lasting thought from the 2000 movie, the fact remains that it was an affable claymation adventure from Aardman Animations that holds up well when compared with the relentless CGI dreck that has infested theaters over the last decade plus. So when The Pirates! Band of...
