Cutting Room for October 12

  • Film Streams (filmstreams.org) isn’t satisfied with entertaining you; they also want to make you live forever. At least, that’s what I assume the intent is behind their film series titled “Forever Young.” Featuring family and children’s films, the series is underway with Make Believe, a coming-of-age story about young magicians, already screening on Saturdays, Sundays and Thursdays through...

Movieha - Omaha’s Movie Podcast!

Once more with feeling, Matt and I try to heat up your eardrums with conversations of the kind only our demented minds can cook up. We talk about Jason Statham's bald sweatiness, how Aronofsky can follow up facilitating Natalie Portman's pregnancy, check out a trailer for a drug-fueled flick, chat about a guy named Pinkie, gush over "Sherlock," and play another round of "Laundered Movie Quotes"...

Attack Lads

The Ides of March

A reminder: Bobbing for apples in a sports stadium urinal trough may be less vile than becoming a professional politician. If Aaron Sorkin’s sorely missed “West Wing” was a weekly fairy tale of governmental grace, The Ides of March is a campfire ghost story where every player is the bogeyman. Populated exclusively with characters only passingly familiar with the definition of integrity, the...

Cutting Room for October 5

  • Depending on your tastes, consider the following a suggestion or a warning: Twilight is taking over Aksarben Cinema (askarbencinema.com) during the month of November. Every Tuesday night at 7 p.m. throughout the month, the theater will screen a past installment of the fangs and fornication series for just five bucks a pop. If you’d rather Twi-hard all at once, for just $25 you can catch a...

Pinkie Gets Fingered

Brighton Rock

Although writer/director Rowan Joffe’s Brighton Rock, the second attempt at a big-screen adaptation of a 1938 Graham Greene novel, never introduces us to the parents of its sociopathic main character, it’s safe to assume they sucked at child rearing. Maybe genetics alone determined that their offspring would become a brain-bashing, knife-wielding savage, but naming him Pinkie Brown couldn’t...

Movieha - Omaha’s Movie Podcast!

This week is a week like no other for Movieha. We tackle the terrible Bellflower, pontificate on what makes the perfect Robocop, ponder a big question, and craft some fine haikus. All in a week's work. Give it a listen and meet me on the other side for the trailers we discussed.

On Your Radar: John Dies at the End

I owe Don Coscarelli for making Bubba-ho-tep. Because of that movie, I got...

Cutting Room for September 28

  • Your ears do so much for you without complaining. The least you can do is treat them to Film Streams’ upcoming Silents in Concert series at the Ruth Sokolof Theater. Now, don’t let the oxymoron-itude of “silent concerts” freak you out. Starting on Tuesday, Oct 4 at 7 pm, the Alloy Orchestra will perform new music to a series of their favorite silent short films. This will be followed on...
