Cutting Room for June 22

  • You down with O-P-E? That’s right, I’m dropping a 90s-era hip-hop euphemism for promiscuous carnal relations to remind you about the Omaha Performing Arts and Cox Communications joint presentation of Music and Movies (or M&M as the cool kids are calling it). For the grand price of FREE, you can show up at the Holland Center’s East Lawn (12th and Douglas st) at 7:30 PM on July 1 and August...

Out of the Past

Midnight in Paris

The rosy-hued vision we often have of that always-intangible past is a fitting subject for Woody Allen, a director with a large segment of fans who pine for the kind of movies he made during his own vaguely defined “golden age.” His new picture, Midnight in Paris, is about a man with a similarly frustrated relationship with the present, and despite its handful of problems, it ranks among his...

Movieha - Omaha’s Movie Podcast (June 17)

Welcome back sexy internet voyagers! Once more we have gathered to declare war on boredom by providing audiotastic joy! Do we mention Django Unchained? Do I call Matt a subhuman pigperson? Do we disparage Will Smith and his progeny? Do we squee over Super 8? Does Matt have full body tremors over a movie trailer? Do we solve the formula for cold fusion? The answer is yes to all but one of those...

It’s Not Easy Seeing Green

Green Lantern

Green Lantern courts a niche audience: insomniacs and the recently lobotomized. This will one day be recognized as “patient zero” in the disease pandemic known as “cinematic superhero fatigue.” In honor of its dogged devotion to a yawn-inspiring storytelling formula, here’s an algorithm: Four writers (Greg Berlanti, Michael Green, Marc Guggenheim and Michael Goldenberg) minus one...

Committed and Curious

Last Night

Last Night, the directorial debut from Massy Tadjedin, is a flawed but ambitious little drama focusing on a stylish, successful pair of New Yorkers. Joanna (Keira Knightley) and Michael (Sam Worthington) have been married for three years and have been together for longer. Despite separations due to Michael's frequent business trips, they seem happy and healthy in their relationship and...

Cutting Room for June 15

  • The phenomenon of The Room defies logic. It is also an unstoppable juggernaut, as Tommy Wiseau’s costar, Greg Sestero, is set to release a tell-all book called “Locked Inside The Room” in 2013. It will dive into all the scintillating questions that a person would have about a movie widely considered to be the worst thing done with a recording device not owned by a politician. Look, I get...

Strangers with Candy

Beautiful Darling

Several recent documentaries have mined a vein of nostalgia for New York City’s East Village art scene of the ‘70s and ‘80s. For example, with its obligatory still photos of the artist chillin’ with a number of as-yet-undiscovered artists (Madonna being one of them), The Radiant Child shed light on Jean Michel Basquiat’s life and career. Iconic NYC fashion photographer Bill Cunningham...
