Gray-Haired Black Ops

Red

Wry sense of humor, sly sexuality, potent and visually stimulating violence? Oh, Ernest Borgnine, is there anything you can’t do? Okay, fine, although the 93-year-old gap-toothed thespian pops up infrequently in Red, a film for which all those previous descriptors do actually apply, his inclusion is a metaphor for the inexplicably kinda-awesome ha-ha/bang-bang extravaganza as a whole....

Jack Goes Boating

It’s a little known non-fact that Philip Seymour Hoffman has had a role, big or small, in every movie ever made. If you don’t believe me, just look for his cameo as “cherubic South Carolina racist” in Birth of a Nation. We all knew it was just a matter of time before he applied his considerable talents behind the camera as well, as he did in his directorial debut Jack Goes Boating, an...

The Wizard of Oz, The Hobbit, the Superman, and the Prequel

In addition to being wholly unnecessary, director Sam Raimi’s upcoming The Wizard of Oz prequel is also apparently wholly inappropriate. Although this information comes through a shady Internet source more suspect than a “Law and Order: Special Victims Unit” character played by a former Oscar winner, the supposed synopsis of The Great and Powerful Oz includes the following note regarding...

Next Stop, Glue Factory

Secretariat

Although directed at no specific group, Secretariat may represent some form of hate crime. As unintentionally hilarious as The Happening, as hideously filmed as a flip-camera video taken on a roller coaster ride in the dark, as horribly acted as a community theater musical starring meth addicts, any compliment the film is given is a lie told by a lying liar. If screenwriter Mike Rich hadn’t...

Human Centipede

It’s 2010, which means everyone with a modem has stumbled across a video they wish they hadn’t seen, a movie depicting an act so vile that we thought they were urban legend; we couldn’t believe people actually did that — until we watched it. Our collective innocence fled sometime between the viral videos “Two Girls One Cup” and “Man Beaten to Death With Hammer.” Horror movie...

Pocket Change Movie Goin’

Having raised the roof, or at least shown films on it, over the summer, CinemaOmaha is now sponsoring “The Archives @ Polyester,” which may sound like filing newspaper clippings in your pant pockets but is really a film series. For a $ Mad Ave, an all-ages, drug and alcohol free venue opens in Lincoln next week. The club at 2800 N. 48th St. has a capacity of 200 and plans to host “live...

Poke of Genius

The Social Network shows smarties suck Whether owed to a ritual goat sacrifice or a cauldron-cooked potion, mastery of the dark arts is the only way Aaron Sorkin’s script about an insufferable prick compelled by hubris and hormones to create a website out of spite could sizzle like an unpoked hotdog in the microwave. Although The Social Network is surfing atop a hyperbole tsunami that’s...
