Cutting Room for June 29

  • Film Streams at the Ruth Sokolof Theater (filmstreams.org) is promising what thousands of dollars in plastic surgeries and ritual sacrifices to pagan gods have not delivered: immortality. At least, that’s what I presume they’re offering with Forever Young, their ongoing series of family and children’s movies that run from July 9 to October 6. Beginning with Mia and the Migoo, the series also...

Headline Blues

Page One

I won’t feign objectivity. Although director Andrew Rossi’s documentary Page One may center on The New York Times’ ongoing fight for survival, it’s more than that. The film is a snapshot of the collision between new media and mainstream journalism…with the latter as the bug, and the former as the windshield. Because there’s a chance you risked smudging your fingers to read this review, you know...

  • You down with O-P-E?

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...

Out of the Past

Midnight in Paris

The rosy-hued vision we often have of that always-intangible past is a fitting subject for Woody Allen, a director with a large segment of fans who pine for the kind of movies he made during his own vaguely defined “golden age.” His new picture, Midnight in Paris, is about a man with a similarly frustrated relationship with the present, and despite its handful of problems, it ranks among his...

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...

It’s Not Easy Seeing Green

Green Lantern

Green Lantern courts a niche audience: insomniacs and the recently lobotomized. This will one day be recognized as “patient zero” in the disease pandemic known as “cinematic superhero fatigue.” In honor of its dogged devotion to a yawn-inspiring storytelling formula, here’s an algorithm: Four writers (Greg Berlanti, Michael Green, Marc Guggenheim and Michael Goldenberg) minus one...
