Movieha - Omaha’s Movie Podcast (June 17)

Episode 8 - Touching dirty purples

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 (Hint: I'm a big Jaden Smith fan). Listen away and then let's reunite on the other side.

First up, BOX OFFICE HAIKUS!

Box Office Haikus

Here are last week’s results along with my patented formula that reveals my predictive accuracy:

Box Office June 10-12
1.) Super 8 - $37 million (Accuracy of prediction - 97%)
2.) X-Men: First Class - $24 million (Accuracy of prediction - 98%)
3.) The Hangover Part II - $31 million (Accuracy of prediction - 94%)
4.) Kung Fu Panda - $16.5 million (Accuracy of prediction - 95%)
5.) Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides - $18 million (Accuracy of prediction - 91%)

Overall accuracy of prediction - 95%

I DOMINATED!
I may know what I'm doing!
My mom is so proud.

Now, on to this week’s predictions!

Box Office Predictions for June 17-19

1.)Green Lantern - $55 million
Nothing to see here
but you will go anyway.
And then regret it.

2.)Mr. Popper's Penguins - $27 million
If you haven't seen,
Jim Carrey's press for this one
has been just INSANE!

3.)Super 8 - $21 million
If you saw it...GOOD!
If you haven't...GET OUT THERE!
I swear you'll love it.

4.) X-Men: First Class - $12 million
Green Lantern will hurt
but this film is much better.
That should mean something.

5.) Kung Fu Panda 2- $11 million
Popper will pop this
The battle of black and white
animals begins!

On Your Radar:BellflowerTrailer

The story behind the making of Evan Glodell's Bellflower is almost as thrilling as trailer itself. An indie action-tinged film that looks brilliant...Matt has already lost his nut over this one. Check it out and you'll see why.

Netflix Roulette: The Nines

If you've seen my review above, you'll know that Ryan Reynolds' latest is not so great. That makes me sad, because we LOVE him here at Movieha. Thus, we're watching a supposedly better smaller movie from him. This mind-bender is one Matt hasn't seen yet, but I have. He's gonna love it. And so will you, check out the trailer below!
