Movieha - Omaha’s Movie Podcast!

This week's episode is stuffed to the gills with our measured reaction to more George Lucas meddling, a thorough discussion of a woman with four first names, my obsession with Donald Glover, an investigation into a French Liam Neeson, and all the movie haikus you can handle. Give it a listen and we'll meet up on the other side with the trailers.

On Your Radar: Martha Marcy May Marlene

Although the name may sound innocent, this is actually a movie about a crazy whacked out cult. And in other scientology news...Just kidding, L-Ron lovers. Don't sick the Willenium on me. At any rate, this indie flick is getting hella buzz, and it looks to be a perfect blend of well-acted character work and super-intense thriller elements. How delicious!

Netflix Roulette: 13 Assassins

Not gonna lie, this one's more for us than anything. Matt and I adore awesome martial arts action, let alone stuff from the wacky Takashi Miike. It likely isn't for everyone, but hey, what is?

Cutting Room for September 7

In direct disobedience of The Beatles, Film Streams (filmstreams.org) has opted not to save things that are free for either the birds or the bees, choosing instead to share them with us twice over.
 

  • First, on Tuesday Sept 20 at 7 p.m., Native American Public Telecommunications (NAPT) will partner with Omaha’s art theater to show a free screening of Reel Injun, a film exploring the depiction of Native Americans in the media. Spoiler alert: Said depiction often sucks. The presentation is sponsored by the Native American Studies Program at the University of Nebraska at Omaha and will feature a post-show discussion. This screening is also produced in partnership with NAPT’s fourth biennial VisionMaker Film Festival, which will be held at the Mary Riepma Ross Media Arts Center (theross.org) and Sheldon Art Museum in Lincoln. What’s better than a thought-provoking experience for the grand price of free?
  •  
  • Howsabout two thought-provoking experiences for the grand price of free? On Thursday October 6 at 7 p.m., Film Streams is holding a free screening of The Quilted Conscience, a documentary about the relationship between 16 Sudanese-American girls and a quilter’s guild in Grand Island, Nebraska. The event is presented by the University of Nebraska at Omaha’s Grace Abbott School of Social Work and the University of Nebraska Foundation. It will feature a post-show discussion with director John Sorenson. Tickets can be reserved by emailing Maggie Wood at maggie@filmstreams.org, and thanks to Beardmore Chevrolet Subaru, you won’t pay a dime for them. Sew what are you waiting for? Get it? I said “sew”… because it’s about quilting. Hey, at least the jokes are free, too.

Movieha - Omaha’s Movie Podcast!

Hey gang! Last week there was some confusion and tomfoolery with the site that prevented us from giving you the podcastical goodness you deserve on this here Reader site. No worries though, bruvva, I'll go ahead and post this week's podcast and trailers as well as LAST WEEK'S podcast and trailers all in one spot for the grand price of free. You can't beat that deal. Especially considering that this week we introduce a grand new game for Matt to play, discuss one of our favorite movies of the summer, and blow apart a certain hobo with a certain shotgun, all before delivering some haiku goodness. That's a lot of awesome!

Episode 19 - Ryan Welcomes Tiny Men

On Your Radar - Tyrannosaur

A well-acted flick from a first-time director is always worth noting, so get ready for some gruffly accented violent relationship exploration!

Netflix Roulette: Mystery Team

I'm so excited to talk about this one! My love for the talented Donald Glover knows no bounds. I mean, it knows legal bounds and whatnot, but not many more than that. Here's the trailer.

 

Episode 18 - Sexy Justice!

On Your Radar: A Lonely Place to Die

Don't let the title fool you, this one looks really intense and depressing.

Netflix Roulette: Hobo with a Shotgun

The trailer is better than the movie. Watch this and call it a day.

That's it for this week. Thanks again for all your support!
