Movieha! - Omaha’s Favorite Movie Podcast

This has been one weird week. Having the fourth of July fall on a Wednesday gave us a week that felt like it had two Mondays (boo) and two Fridays (yay). Sadly, you only get one Movieha. This week we discuss Tyler Perry branching out into outer space, which is where Starship Troopers live. We geek-gasm over The Man with the Iron Fists trailer, in all its eye-punching glory. I cry a bit over The...

Never Go Full Burton

Moonrise Kingdom

It’s not writer/director Wes Anderson’s fault that since he burst on the scene with what is still his best film, Bottle Rocket, he has become a hipster demigod. Even when The Royal Tenenbaums hit, tattoo mustaches on fingers and scarves in the summer were but a glimmer in the eyes of youth who would go on to appropriate the word irony in a way that is ironically ironic. Throw a pebble at an...

Cutting Room for June 29

  • To paraphrase from our esteemed VP, whether or not you like it, The Hunger Games is a “big effing deal.” Sure, he was referring to health care reform that has the potential to save the lives and fortunes of millions of Americans and I’m just talking about a movie sequel, but still… Francis Lawrence, the recently appointed and wildly underqualified new director taking over Catching Fire, has...

Movieha! - Omaha’s Favorite Movie Podcast

Friday is the holiest of all days to those of us who grind out a 9-5 schedule. And thus, it is the day your ears get blessed with new Movieha! This week, Matt and I ramble on about the significance of movie rankings (like stars and letter grades), pontificate on Popeye, consider How to Stop a Plague, marvel over Seeking a Friend for the End of the World, mildly disagree about Griff the...

Inappropriate Arachnid Adjective

The Amazing Spider-man

Ugh.

Because there’s no way for me to do this that isn’t personal, I may as well go all out.

Spider-man means a lot to me. Like, a lot a lot. As a gangly, nerdy kid often on the wrong side of juvenile taunting, Peter Parker’s experience wasn’t a stand-in for my life; he was living it. I mean, other than the whole super powers and inexplicably hot girlfriends part.

Because of Spider-man, I...

All in the Family

As she herself puts it, Lynn Shelton has made three movies in a row featuring three characters in one location. This goes a long way in explaining not only her priorities as a filmmaker (the actor is king) but also what her movies feel like: focused and precise but still subject to eruptions.

2008's My Effortless Brilliance is a razor-sharp examination of two old friends, now grown apart with...

Armageddon Lucky?

Seeking a Friend for the End of the World

When we are stripped of our artifice and rendered bare souls no longer hidden behind societal constraints or cultural norms, only then are we our genuine self. For some folks, an hour without electricity or a rough day at the office is enough to unleash the truths that hide inside, which is apparently most often a desire to smash windows or go on a sexual rampage. But for most of us, it would...
