Movieha - Omaha’s Movie Podcast (May 6)

Welcome back!

If you're one of the folks who have been kind enough to give our teeny-tiny little ole podcast a chance, thanks so much. The response to the first episode was really great, and we hope to keep you coming back for more. In this week's episode, Matt has an epic giggle fit, I yell way too loud in at least 3 spots, and we battle over whether Badlanders is a terrible movie or whether Badlanders is a wonderfully terrible movie. Enough reading, give the play button a click and meet me on the other side for some of the interactive elements from this week's episode.

Box Office Haikus

As promised, here are this week's box office predictions, in haiku style!

1.) Thor - $68 million
My love of Norse gods
is eclipsed by just one thing:
Natalie Portman.

2.) Fast 5 - $39 million
How fast is too fast?
When are things too furious?
Only The Rock knows...

3.) Something Borrowed - $13 million
A disclaimer lie!
A little more than "something"
was borrowed for this.

4.) Jumping the Broom - $12 million
A clever title
but I'd rather jump the shark
all things considered.

5.) Rio - $10 million
I don't like toucans.
It started out with Fruit Loops
and got worse from there.

Another Earth Trailer

If you're ready to see why I'm right to have been so indignant with Matt Lockwood's incessant chortling over what is clearly a heartfelt and dang good looking flick, please click play below and be mortified at the indignity that my co-host's snickering represented.

Marwencol Trailer

This is our Netflix Roulette pick of the week, and I have a feeling we may have struck gold on this one. It looks really haunting and yet whimsical, the type of documentary that just gets my engine revving. What? My engine runs on quality cinema, not $4 gas.

Cutting Room for May 4

  • This may seem random, but you should become a fan of Aksarben Cinema on Facebook (facebook.com/aksarbencinema). Unlike 90 percent of companies whose Facebook pages are as limp and timid as the “before” guy in a Cialis commercial, Aksarben regularly brings engaging content and near-daily updates and news. And sometimes that news involves cupcakes (as in, Jones Brothers), which as we all know is the most important flavor of news.

  • Say this much for toothy maniac Gary Busey, he’s legging out some serious staying time with his lunatic persona. Unlike Charlie Sheen, whose crazy burned bright but dimmed faster than a cocaine-fueled power walker, Busey bounces from gig to gig so quickly one could consider him gainfully employed. The latest maneuver is his role in Piranha 3DD, in which I am guessing he will play the head piranha. Shine on, you beautiful advertisement for mental health screening.

  • Hubris has a shelf life, as producer John Aglialoro has surrendered on his plan to follow through with the next two parts of his planned Atlas Shrugged trilogy. And it’s all my fault. See, Aglialoro isn’t blaming the fact that his adaptation was, you know, as wretched as the souls of those who strictly adhere to Ayn Rand’s ideology. Nope: He blames the “critics” who savaged it unfairly. If you want to give us reviewers credit for that justifiable homicide, we’ll wear that blame like a badge of honor.

  • Described as “blending Robert Ludlum and J.R.R. Tolkien,” we don’t know much about the upcoming film Amnesty other than the fact that Ron Howard is directing. So I guess we also know it’s not going to be that good. Zing! Take that, you Oscar-thieving ginger!
