Movieha - Omaha’s Movie Podcast (June 24)

Once more, you have slogged through a thankless workweek filled with soul-crushing tasks and gut-wrenching obligations. Your reward? A new episode of Movieha, the greatest podcast in the history of podcasts run by guys named Matt and Ryan (NOTE: This fact has not been verified as accurate.) This week's episode features ANOTHER new segment, a glimpse of our hatred for The Green Lantern, a clown-murdering foreign movie to put on your radar, another dredging of Netflix streaming movie depths, and a discussion about Evangeline Lilly (pictured below because I had an excuse to do so).

Box Office Predictions for June 24-26

1.) Cars 2 - $65 million
NO! Et tu, Pixar?
A money-grubbing sequel?
I thought I knew you...

2.) Green Lantern - $22 million
This is blackest day,
and there'll be no brightest night.
Evil has the might.

3.) Bad Teacher -$21 million
Cameron Diaz sucks.
It's a scientific fact.
You just think she's hot.

4.) Super 8 - $12 million
I saw this one twice.
That's the highest compliment,
I can give a film.

5.) Mr. Popper's Penguins - $10 million
I hate you penguins!
Not real ones, the fake ones here.
They ruined my week.

 

On Your Radar: The Last Circuis Trailer

I think this is increasingly becoming the "tripped out as balls movie that Matt Lockwood wants to see" trailer of the week. I don't know how you describe this movie, other than how we tried in the podcast. Here it is, in all it's clown, blood, sex glory.

Netflix Roulette: Agora

When I first read the name of this one, I thought "a whole movie about my favorite type of sweater? Sign me up!" Then I found out it was a historical-based drama. And I was all "EWWW!!! I hate facts! I loathe historical accuracy!" Then I remembered, "Wait a minute...I'm not a member of the TEA PARTY!" Then I got excited. Seriously, though, this is a good director with an interesting concept and a big budget and I never even knew the movie came out. This is either going to be a cool find or an unmitigated disaster. That's why we call it roulette...

Cutting Room for June 22

  • You down with O-P-E? That’s right, I’m dropping a 90s-era hip-hop euphemism for promiscuous carnal relations to remind you about the Omaha Performing Arts and Cox Communications joint presentation of Music and Movies (or M&M as the cool kids are calling it). For the grand price of FREE, you can show up at the Holland Center’s East Lawn (12th and Douglas st) at 7:30 PM on July 1 and August 19 to chick-ity check out a live band followed by a dope movie (to be clear, that’s “dope” meaning “good” and not a screening of Reefer Madness). On July 1, The Kris Lager Band will get all up in your ears’ business followed by a showing of Jurassic Park, still the illest dinosaur movie ever. On August 19, you can hear funky fresh jams by Funk Trek before watching the funk-nasty Shrek. If you hit up the website (omahaperformingarts.org), you can even order pre-made picnic baskets. Oh, SNAP! This write-up was sponsored by the Coalition for Dated Slang Terms and their president Tone Loc.

  • Everyone around these parts knows Film Streams (filmstreams.org) is a mighty special theater, but now we have even more proof. The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences took a brief break from tinkering with the Oscars—last year’s ceremony is still going I believe—in order to award Film Streams’ Visiting Artists Program with a $7,500 institutional grant. Hey, check it out, they got an award right! The grant will help bring artists to Omaha for various screenings, workshops and performances and is nothing short of richly deserved. Hats off once more to Film Streams. Omaha’s sure lucky to have ya.

Movieha - Omaha’s Movie Podcast (June 17)

Welcome back sexy internet voyagers! Once more we have gathered to declare war on boredom by providing audiotastic joy! Do we mention Django Unchained? Do I call Matt a subhuman pigperson? Do we disparage Will Smith and his progeny? Do we squee over Super 8? Does Matt have full body tremors over a movie trailer? Do we solve the formula for cold fusion? The answer is yes to all but one of those (Hint: I'm a big Jaden Smith fan). Listen away and then let's reunite on the other side.

First up, BOX OFFICE HAIKUS!

Box Office Predictions for June 17-19

1.)Green Lantern - $55 million
Nothing to see here
but you will go anyway.
And then regret it.

2.)Mr. Popper's Penguins - $27 million
If you haven't seen,
Jim Carrey's press for this one
has been just INSANE!

3.)Super 8 - $21 million
If you saw it...GOOD!
If you haven't...GET OUT THERE!
I swear you'll love it.

4.) X-Men: First Class - $12 million
Green Lantern will hurt
but this film is much better.
That should mean something.

5.) Kung Fu Panda 2- $11 million
Popper will pop this
The battle of black and white
animals begins!

On Your Radar:BellflowerTrailer

The story behind the making of Evan Glodell's Bellflower is almost as thrilling as trailer itself. An indie action-tinged film that looks brilliant...Matt has already lost his nut over this one. Check it out and you'll see why.

Netflix Roulette: The Nines

If you've seen my review above, you'll know that Ryan Reynolds' latest is not so great. That makes me sad, because we LOVE him here at Movieha. Thus, we're watching a supposedly better smaller movie from him. This mind-bender is one Matt hasn't seen yet, but I have. He's gonna love it. And so will you, check out the trailer below!
