Cutting Room For February 2

  • For the longest time, if you wanted to see director Dan Mirvish’s Omaha (The Movie), you had to know Dan Mirvish. And that’s cool, but Dan’s a busy dude. So it’s my pleasure to tell you that the flick can now be streamed online through Microsoft and on X-Box Live…which would be great if my X-Box didn’t commit cyber seppuku a few days back. Still, good news for those of you with a memory for a classic local indie flick and a gaming system with a will to live.

  • Gather round, my dears, and I shall tell you the dark and twisted tale of Prometheus, the next flick from director Ridley Scott. When first we heard tell of it, this was a straight-up prequel to the Scott’s classic Alien. Legend had it Natalie Portman would star in a story about the abandoned ship discovered in the first film. Then came a cry of hogwash and malarkey! There was to be no Natalie, and it wasn’t an Alien prequel at all, so it had nothing to do with that ship. But from the beyond, a voice cried “Not so fast.” While Noomi Rapace would replace Natalie, it was an Alien prequel and would feature the ship in question! So what is truth and what is fiction? I could tell you, but I’d have to kill you.

  • Will Ferrell will appear in four episodes of “The Office,” and Judy Dench will return in the next Bond movie. Why put those things together? Um… Well, they both will play bosses and both are big names in big franchises. And then there’s the obvious sexual tension between the two, which makes it so hard to keep them apart.
