Movieha - Omaha’s Movie Podcast!

Technology sucks. You can pretend otherwise, but the reality is that it exists only to taunt us. Technology is Lucy, holding the football out to Charlie Brown, telling him "it's okay, you can trust me." And then WHAMMO. Kersplat. Technology will be the death of us all, and we know it, yet we continue to rely on it, slouching ever closer towards our inevitable, horrid demise.

So, yeah, it's been that kind of few weeks at Movieha.

We've tried valiantly to get this content to you, braving all kinds of personal and technological storms, and yet we fell woefully behind. WOEFULLY behind. So here it is, a one-stop shopping post for all of the last 3 episodes of Movieha that weren't yet posted here. You can either gorge your ears on this in one large feast, or you can divide it up. Either way, you're going to have some fun. Here they are in reverse chronological order:

Episode 29 - Partly Metal, Partly Real

On Your Radar: Paranorman

Admittedly, we tend to skew a little dark on these trailers. So this time, we gave you an animated flick! I mean, sure it has undead demons and whatnot, but it has kids too!

Netflix Roulette: Pontypool

An art-house take on zombie stuff? Okay. I'm down, even if it's from Canada.


Episode 28 - Turd Talk

On Your Radar: Headshot

A hitman movie with a cool gimmick? Sign us up.

Netflix Roulette: Red State

I really liked this movie. For real.

Episode 27 - Oomph Zazz

On Your Radar: Ecstacy

Hey, it's not what you think it is. Okay, maybe it is.

Netflix Roulette: Splinterheads

Honestly, I can't even recommend you watch this trailer.

That's it! We're all caught up! Hooray!

Cutting Room for November 9

  • From the “Because You Demanded It” File: Jennifer Lopez is producing a live-action version of Where in the World is Carmen Sandiego? Originally a video game with the sick desire to actually educate players about geography, the elusive titular character had a game show in the 1990s and an animated cartoon before fading into an oblivion that made said title ironic. Although Lopez has not expressed a desire to play the aforementioned elusive globe-trotter, she’d be lousy for the part. Why? Well, because of relentless Fiat and “American Idol” advertising, not only can I find her, I can’t get away from her.
  • Because nobody wants to hear a movie guy opine about music, I’ll refrain from telling you exactly what I think about that weird Lou Reed/Metallica album. Besides, my full opinion involves a drawing of a dumpster and the sound of cute bunny’s death rattle. The good news is that Darren Aronofsky is directing a video from the album, for a song called “Iced Honey,” which sounds delicious but isn’t. With perhaps the most talented filmmaker working today behind the camera, at least one of our four senses may enjoy something from this musical experiment gone wrong.
  •  Should an ape win an Oscar? No, this isn’t a Russell Crowe joke. Andy Serkis, the man who played Gollum in the Lord of the Rings series and Cesar in Rise of the Planet of the Apes, is a master of motion capture, which is where an actor does all of the physical work on set wearing what looks like fancy headgear and is replaced in postproduction by computer animation. Because Apes went bananas at the box office (sorry, I had to do it), Serkis has netted a deal to return to the role, and the studio has agreed to push for an Oscar nod, which would mark the first time an animated character would be nominated…unless you count anything Robin Williams was nominated for in the 80s or 90s.

Cutting Room for November 2

  • Challenging their status as respected visionaries, The Coen Brothers (who are admittedly far, far smarter than yours truly), have determined that Justin Timberlake isn’t the colossal failure as an actor that the vast majority of his IMDB page would suggest. The legendary auteurs are pursuing the sexy-backer for a major role in Inside Llewellyn Davis, which is thankfully about folk rock in the 1960s and not the colonoscopy of a man named Llewellyn Davis. The good news is he can draw on the musical talents he’s decided to shun. The bad news is, you know, the whole acting thing.
  • I suppose if you’re going to make a biopic of Steve Jobs’ life, a wholly unneeded endeavor given the bubbling fountain of cyber-ink that has been spilled documenting his every breath, you could do worse than having Aaron Sorkin write it. After all, he’s already proved more than capable of bearing the dual albatrosses of a computer-centric storyline that’s based on real events with The Social Network. Although the studio (ironically, Sony) is pursuing the master of walky-talky dialogue, it’s unclear whether he’s ready to once more plunge into the often ill-fated technology-laden drama breech.
  • How much do you love Batman? Like, lots and lots? Say, enough to endure a gigantic version of Tom Cruise? Word has come from the studio that The Dark Knight Rises will have a six-minute prologue/preview in front of Mission Impossible: Ghost Protocol. But only in front of the IMAX version and, even then, only on full 70mm IMAX screens (not the smaller, digital-projection screens). A full list of participating theaters will be announced shortly, presumably via the bat signal.
