Movieha - Omaha’s favorite movie podcast!

It's finally time, folks. Last week was just a warm-up, a precursor, an audio appetizer for the main entree your ear tongues have been waiting to feast upon: This is officially the first episode (first REAL episode) of Movieha! Featuring 100% less factual inaccuracies, this podcast is but the first of TWO you will be receiving as we endeavor to start a regular cycle of deliver podcastical goodness to your ear holes every Friday. This week's installment covers a wide swath of movie goodness, but you didn't come here to read with your eyes. Give your peepers a rest and check out our first official episode, which we've titled "Frothing Loins and Climactic Resolutions" for reasons that are nowhere near as filthy as that sounds. Below the embedded file, I'll hit you up with some visual treats that tie in to what we discussed! Now, quickly: PRESS PLAY!!!!

Okay, because I know you'll be interested, below you will find trailers for both Troll Hunter and Super, along with a link to the full review I wrote for that movie. Below that, you'll find the Hulu link to the movie we're watching for our game of Netflix Roulette this week. I have to warn you: Once you've seen Badlanders, you'll never be the same again. Please follow us on Twitter and hit us up with any comments or questions at .(JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address)!

Welcome to Movieha!

You are about to embark on an ear journey. You will soon be able to divide your life into two distinct chapters: The time before you first heard Movieha, and the best time of your entire life. What is posted below is not our first episode. It's what we call "Episode Zero," and is really just us messing around with the format. This isn't to say that the talented Matthew Lockwood did not work his producer magic upon it, coaxing the segments into beautiful shape after we more or less verbally vomited into a laptop microphone for an hour. We wanted to post this as both a palate cleanser and as an appetizer (to keep the metaphors food-related).

Here's how this is going to go: Every Friday, we're going to be delivering new podcast goodness upon you. You can find that podcast here, you can subscribe to our podcast through iTunes (shortly, we're working on that), and will be able to listen directly at our main site (which we're also working on). Yes, those are a lot of things "still in production," but like we said, this isn't even technically episode one!

Throughout the week, you can still check back here for fun blog posts such as Things You Should Buy Me and Box Office Haikus, as those things don't translate great to radio. But as far as movie news, reviews, and other general internet goodness goes, you're going to let your eye holes rest while your ear buds work double time.

We're new at this and we desperately want to get better. If you have any ideas for new segments, if you love something, if you hate something, if you just want to talk, hit us up at .(JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address). You can also follow us on twitter at http://twitter.com/movieha and will soon be able to interact with us on our Facebook page. We intend to be everywhere you want us to be covering movie goodness of whatever sort you want.

This is a grand experiment for my good buddy (who is doing so, so much work for it you have no idea) and myself. We really hope the joy that we've had creating this comes across and we really, truly are looking to make this as good as we can, so please don't be shy about hitting us up.

Thus, without further ado, I give unto you: THE NOT REALLY FIRST EPISODE THAT IS KIND OF THE FIRST EPISODE THAT MAY OR MAY NOT HAVE TOO MUCH CONTENT INVOLVING THE WORDS "THICK" AND "MEATY"....ladies and gents, here is Movieha.

Oh, and this is an update: Joe Patrick of the incredibly awesome comic podcast Two-Headed Nerd (which you should listen to if you have even a passing interest in comics) caught a terrible, stupid mistake IN OUR VERY FIRST EFFORT! As it turns out, and I SWEAR I KNEW THIS, Joe Wright who directed Hanna is not the same human as Joe Johnston, who is directing Captain America. I blame 4 factors: 1 - the tire I blew an hour before we recorded. 2 - the boozes we drank. 3 - a lack of preparation. 4 - I really wanted to turn Matt into a goosebump over Captain America. Let this be further proof of how much work we have left to go before we're ready for prime time.

Cutting Room for April 27

  • Jeremy Renner, who is somewhere between awesome and kinda creepy, has replaced Matt Damon. No, he hasn’t become Ben Affleck’s hetero life-mate; he’s going to step into the lead role in The Bourne Legacy. The story won’t see Renner as Jason Bourne but is likely to feature the same vomit-inducing shaky-cam violence and a seemingly complex (but really rather simple) plot. Congrats to you, Jeremy! Nothing says you’ve made it like landing the top spot in the fourth film in a franchise everyone thought was done.

  • As is still legally required by the congressional act known as “The Wicked Awesome Buddies Law,” because we just mentioned Matt Damon, we now have to do a Ben Affleck story. Turns out that the mediocre-actor-turned-way-better-director has officially made Argo his next project. Affleck will reportedly also star in the film, which follows the true story of the rescue of American citizens from Iran by CIA agents pretending to make a sci-fi movie. Sadly, this means Affleck will be unable to star in Baz Luhrman’s remake of The Great Gatsby. Did I say “sadly?” I did not mean that. I meant “Thank the good Lord.”

  • In sad, joyless, wretched news, Tim Hetherington, the brilliant war photographer and documentarian, was killed by gutless cowards in Libya. His last film, Restrepo, was perhaps the finest of the modern crop of war documentaries, and his achingly important voice and vision will be sorely missed. This serves as a reminder that in an age of compromised journalistic integrity, there are still those willing to stand in the line of fire to tell us the truth. Tim, you will be sorely missed.
