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...

Cutting Room for April 20

  • Usually, if I’m reaching for java at 3 pm, something in my day has gone terribly, terribly wrong, as me plus coffee equals “you’d best watch yourself, fool.” But I’m highly recommending everyone get some Hot Coffee at 3 pm on April 29 at Midtown Cinema Center (marcustheatres.com). Instead of prying your eyes open with the magic of the most addictive legal drug, this documentary will open...

The Perils of Motherhood

This may sound like a joke to anyone who's seen Mommie Dearest (and believes what they've seen), but legendary hanger-hater Joan Crawford won her Oscar for playing a woman who surely has to be among the saintliest of silver screen single mothers.

In Mildred Pierce (1945), Crawford plays the titular heroine, a California divorcee struggling to make ends meet and raise a couple of daughters....
