Movieha - Omaha’s Movie Podcast!

Welcome once more to the audio extravaganza that is Movieha, your favorite movie podcast hosted by guys named Ryan and Matt. This week we have a wild cornucopia of fun for you, including a look at the Oscar nominations, a fun game of "six degrees of Gary Oldman," Matt guessing foreign titles for things, and our usual haikus, Netflix review, and look at an upcoming trailer. Give it a listen and I'll hit you below with the trailers we talked about!

On Your Radar: Silent House

Matt hates scary things. Thus, I try to expose him to as many as possible. This time, we have a great looking trailer for a rather inventive flick that supposedly was shot in one take. Hmmm...

 

Netflix Roulette: Kicking and Screaming

Okay, we're cheating this time. But that's only because we love you and want you to watch this great flick with us. It's one of our favorites from back in the day, so give the trailer a look and then run to Netflix so you'll be prepared for our discussion next week!

Cutting Room for January 25

  • Movies about Shakespeare aren’t just for high-school kids looking to avoid reading their homework. Each Tuesday in February at 6 pm, Aksarben Cinema (aksarbencinema.com) and Nebraska Shakespeare are teaming up to bring you a movie from or inspired by the bard. Each screening will be followed by a discussion featuring Associate Artistic Director Vincent Carlson-Brown and guest scholar D. Scott Glasser, Chair of the University of Nebraska at Omaha’s Department of Theater. The films include Much Ado About Nothing, Romeo and Juliet, Julius Caesar and The Boys from Syracuse. Need more motivation than classic works by the best writer in the history of writing? Free food. Show up at 5:30 and munch on free appetizers. To eat or not to eat, that’s really no question.
  • Documentaries are good; documentaries that try to do good are…even gooder? So if you needed another reason to seek out West of Memphis, the new documentary about the West Memphis Three (Damien Echols, Jason Baldwin and Jessie Misskelley), a recent press release may give you one. Producers Peter Jackson and Fran Walsh funded an investigation aimed at finding out who really killed three young boys in 1993, as countless probes have demonstrated the men in prison are likely innocent. Well, turns out that investigation yielded new testimony from three witnesses who claim to know the real murderer. Here’s hoping the film’s release comes with a side portion of justice.
  • Chuck Norris, old though he may be, is still finding new ways to suck. Case in point, the only reason The Expendables 2 exists is presumably for violent escapism. Norris’ involvement came with a caveat that the film has to be PG-13. There goes the copious violence. Now their audience is down to man-boob lovers and Sylvester Stallone’s family.

Movieha - Omaha’s Movie Podcast!

Episode 38 of the greatest podcast to ever be hosted by guys named Ryan Syrek and Matt Lockwood is here! We talk about all sortsa stuff this week, including space jockeys, bellies that are Delhi, and we even discuss Gary Oldman's medication levels. Give your ears a yum yum and meet me after for the trailers!

On Your Radar

Seriously, are we NOT going to at least mention the arrival of another film from the man who inadvertantly made Nic Cage yell "How'd it get burned" 100 times before kicking Leelee Sobieski in the chest? That's right, Wicker Tree is the latest in the "Wicker" series. And I'm seeing it.

Netflix Roulette

I have a bad feeling about this one. It's mostly because of the Hartnett. Never trust a man who squints that much.
