Movieha! - Omaha’s favorite movie podcast

Hello lovelies,

It's time once more for your weekly indulgence, as we have birthed another Movieha for you to pop in your ears. This week we hunger for blood and ice cream, ponder Harrison Ford's replication, look into some Holy Motors, don't hate Men in Black 3, take a dip with Submarine, and drop some poetic verse on your ass. All in a week's work. Listen up and then hit me on the other...

Cutting Room for May 25

  • It’s not a good sign when a movie gets delayed. It’s really not a good sign when the cover story is a conversion to 3D. It’s really, really not a good sign when a movie gets delayed about a month before its release after a year of marketing, including a Super Bowl ad, which I’m told can be marginally expensive. G.I. Joe: Retaliation has become G.I. Joe: Retreat, as the movie moved to March...

Movieha! - Omaha’s favorite movie podcast

It's Friday again! And this is a day that is popular for reasons other than its inclusion in an internet meme and the name of a chain restaurant. That's right, it's beloved because it's the day you get new Movieha! This week we discuss exorcisms and Alf, explore a trailer that will probably get Matt sued, ponder what has become of Sacha Baron Cohen, analyze a Netflix movie that involves a porn...

Borderline Jiggy

Men in Black 3

The first Men in Black (or MIB as our abbreviation-addled, advertising-driven society insists we call it) was just regular bad. But MIB2 was a very special kind of bad, the kind that comes from trying to replicate the box office success of the first endeavor to the point of soul-crushing, benign banality. So it was surprising to hear director Barry Sonnenfeld and writer Etan Cohen describe how...

Do You Hear What I Hear?

Sound of My Voice

Those who fawn over indie “It Girl” darlings had best have a “trust fall” partner walk behind them while exiting Sound of My Voice because writer/actress Brit Marling is downright “humina-humina” swoon-worthy. It’s not just that her role in the film is predicated on the fact that you will automatically mildly obsess over her, it’s the knowledge that she helped write this remarkably clever,...

Wadiya Do That For?

The Dictator

Although it turned many a talentless friend into an amateur impressionist, Sacha Baron Cohen’s performance as Borat was inarguably hilarious. The improvised, horribly racist, legitimately brilliant film that put Cohen on the map was a straight-up phenomenon and a much-needed reminder that the best comedy is dangerous comedy. Even Cohen’s follow-up, Brüno, was delightfully savage, exposing...

The Bicycle Grief

The Kid with the Bike

In what is essentially Oliver French Twist, writers/directors Jean-Pierre Dardenne and Luc Dardenne definitively prove that life in France is more than just croissant-eating and Muslim-hating. In soul-crushing fashion, this muted tale of an unwanted, unloved boy is simultaneously gripping and dull. It’s hard to pull off such a dichotomy, but these are a people who turned Jerry Lewis from clown...
