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...

The Digital Diamond

Moneyball

“It's hard not to be romantic about baseball.” Or so drawls Billy Beane, the restless Oakland Athletics general manager depicted in “all caps” by Brad Pitt in Moneyball. It's a hard statement to deny, whether or not the phrase “America's pastime” even means anything in our always-connected, always-at-war modern age. That conflict—idyllic nostalgia versus cruel reality—is the secret core of this...

Cutting Room for September 21

  • Despite earlier reports, Kevin Costner has passed on a role in Quentin Tarantino’s Django Unchained. In related news, I am now really looking forward to seeing Django Unchained.

Movieha - Omaha’s Movie Podcast!

Here we go again! Sorry for the delay in getting this here. I'm going to blame my Contagion-induced phobia of touching anything. Keyboards looked like petri dishes for like a full week. But better late than never, right?

The September 10 premiere of the comedy-drama at the Toronto International Film Festival launched the George Clooney vehicle as a must-see this movie season. The screenings in...
