HBO Documentary Films: ROLLING STONE: STORIES FROM THE EDGE

Overview:  ROLLING STONE: STORIES FROM THE EDGE chronicles the last 50 years of American music, politics and popular culture through the perspective of a magazine that understood rock ‘n’ roll was more than music — it was a cultural force that helped shape America and defined generations. An exhilarating visual and musical experience of the magazine’s history, the film features performances by a dazzling array of artists, including The Rolling Stones, Bruce Springsteen, Tina Turner, Janis Joplin, The Sex Pistols, The Clash and Ice-T, and music from some of the cultural icons it heralded, including Bob Dylan, John Lennon, Fleetwood...

Megabus.com Weighs In On “Game of Thrones” Travel Trivia

“Tis a big and beautiful world. Most of us live and die in the same corner where we were born and never get to see any of it. I don’t want to be most of us,” Oberyn Martell told us in Season Four of Game of Thrones, and while his travels may have sadly come to an end,  three seasons later, the surviving characters of Thrones are anything but sedentary. In fact, some fans have complained that Game of Thrones’ characters have been a little too well-traveled in seasons of late– speeding from one side of the world to another with at a dizzying pace that can leave viewers with a sense of whiplash and...

Heinously Humdrum: “Game of Thrones” Has A Villain Problem

Heinously Humdrum: “Game of Thrones” Has A Villain Problem

For a show that revels in moral complexity, Game of Thrones’ villains are beginning to feel as if they are cut from the same cloth.  Before the release of the latest season of HBO’s hit series, Pilou Asbæk, who plays the bombastic, belligerent Euron Greyjoy, announced to the media that his piratical character was going to make the recently deceased Ramsay Bolton “look like a little kid.” At the time, I couldn’t help but sigh. I was burnt out on Ramsay’s relentless brand of snarky, supervillain shenanigans (he lost me somewhere between his shirtless stand against Yara and his handy use of twenty good men to bring down...

Vice Principals Series Finale: “The Union of the Wizard & the Warrior”

A few days ago saw the violent and cataclysmic end of the season and show Vice Principals.  The show is no stranger to turmoil, as the first season gave us an arson and shooting of Neal Gamby. This season followed that up nicely with all sorts of Lee and Gamby antics and gave us a finale I will probably be talking about for years. Gamby believes that Lee is the one who shot him and uses Lee’s past to get rid of him. Lee isn’t going to let things go though as he becomes determined to find who really shot Gamby. If only so he can become BFFs with Gamby again. Because let’s be real, their bromance is absolutely the best part...

HBOWatch Movie Review: “Lego Batman Movie”

HBOWatch Movie Review: “Lego Batman Movie”

The Lego Movie isn’t the first movie-as-advertisement for a children’s toy that resonated so completely with its target audience, but it is the first one that holds up against one’s nostalgia for it (even if that nostalgia only reaches back a few years). As a branding exercise, it manages to hit nearly every major pop-culture-icon-as-Lego reference it needs in order to land with general audiences, but it goes a step further in becoming a surprisingly poignant deconstruction of the “Chosen One” story. A Joe Everyman lego person named Emmett, the idealized citizen in his rigidly structured world, accidentally stumbles into a...

Vice Principals: “Spring Break” & “Venetian Nights”

The last couple of episodes of Vice Principals kicked things up a gear by ending relationships, beginning new ones and finally unveiling who our masked shooter was, or so we think. Episode Seven: “Spring Break” This week is spring break and Lee Russell doesn’t have anyone to spend it with since he and Christine are getting a divorce so Neal decides to invite him to spend spring break with him. He is taking his daughter Janelle and her two friends to the beach for the week. Quite the motley crew with Lee and Neal in charge of three teenage girls bursting with bad attitude and communicating only through their cell phones, it...

Happy 45th Birthday HBO!

Happy 45th Birthday HBO!

HAPPY 45th BIRTHDAY HBO! We have been giving a shout-out to HBO for a few years now (39, 41, 42, 43, 44) on or around November 8. The cable giant went live on this day back in 1972. This writer has been watching it ever since. In celebration, we try to cobble together classic pics & clips that reflect back on the personalities and programming that has kept us watching over the decades. HBO itself put a video together that start us off. How about that retro vibe? The clip utilizes a classic logo & music and even gives us a glitchy signal just like an older TV. We got heroes, titans and damsels from yesteryear and today. What fun; we...

Basking in the sun of a Spring, 2018 premiere date.  Hey, that’s Game of Thrones’ old timeslot!...

Game of Thrones News Round-Up: All Quiet on the Westeros Front

Game of Thrones News Round-Up: All Quiet on the Westeros Front

Game of Thrones ruled supreme this Halloween– it seemed like everyone wanted to be Jon, Daenerys, or a White Walker (my favorite was someone’s imaginative “Tacky White Walker Tourist”)– and now that November has settled in, the chilly weather has prompted everyone to say “Winter is Coming,” perhaps a little too much. While HBO’s polarizing show continues to leave it’s Wun Wun sized foot-print in the daily lives of both dedicated fans and casual watchers, down in Belfast and beyond, the new, final season of Game of Thrones is being filmed with a great deal sneakiness. Security is tight...

HBO Brings International Content to U.S.

HBO Brings International Content to U.S.

I often wondered, what with six more nights to fill beyond Sundays, why HBO could not import some of its international content from affiliates around the world. Well, finally it is going to do that, but the content it is offering will just be available on the streaming sites and On Demand. It still means more great HBO content coming our way. That is, of course, provided you will watch content with subtitles. HBO Chairman and CEO Richard Plepler stated – “Working with talented local writers, directors and producers, our international networks are creating programming that lives up to the high-quality storytelling that is expected...
