Cinemax Ramping Up for A Big 2018!

Cinemax Ramping Up for A Big 2018!

Cinemax still has been churning out movies every night of the week but grew a bit quiet after they canceled QUARRY after one season and promised a return of both STRIKE BACK and OUTCAST that never came. Well, they will return in 2018 and Cinemax is excited about and hope subscribers are also. And they are not the only projects forthcoming. We start with snippets from an official press release: Kary Antholis, president, HBO Miniseries and Cinemax Programming stated, “We are very excited to present a slate that moves CINEMAX back in the direction of fun, often adrenalized, and always entertaining series,” says “We have strategically...

HBOWatch Movie Review: “Fifty Shades Darker”

HBOWatch Movie Review: “Fifty Shades Darker”

I don’t know where to start with Fifty Shades Darker, it has easily placed itself in the ‘one of the worst films I have ever seen’ category, along with its buddy Fifty Shades of Grey and I’m saving a special place in there for Fifty Shades Freed which is, unfortunately, coming out next Valentines Day. They, of course, make up the three filmed installments based on the novels by E. L. James.  There are so many things that are wrong with this film, not just the utter lack of chemistry between Christian and Ana, but the fact that their relationship is so unbelievably boring that there really isn’t a story there to tell. Again,...

Game of Thrones News Round Up: Gearing up For Season 8

   It may feel like we will have to wait forever until the final, eighth season of Game of Thrones, but the cast and crew of the show are currently hard at work and back on set. Almost all of the Thrones actors have returned to the show’s filming hub of Belfast, and sets are being built back up and prepared for imminent use (although this year, HBO is going to dramatic lengths to keep peeping paparazzi away, including erecting huge walls around key areas and looking into trained eagles to take down pesky drones). According to Liam Cunningham, who plays the wholesome smuggler, Davos Seaworth, the cast participated in a script...

Vice Principals: “Think Change”

Vice Principals: “Think Change”

  The hunt for Gamby’s shooter is still going but takes a back seat this week. In this episode, we get to know Lee more and how he has become the person he is. When we first meet Lee, we can tell he’s kind of a conniving guy and that lying seems to come pretty easy for him. And as the series has continued, that behavior has become more abundant and obvious.  Lee is really good at being a sneaky bad guy. But people aren’t born that way. Lee finds out at the beginning of the episode that his father has passed, which means he will need to be gone for a day for the funeral, leaving Gamby in charge. From the start, you...

The Deuce: “What Kind of Bad?”

The Deuce: “What Kind of Bad?”

Our characters continue to delve deeper into business deals, alienated relationships and abusive situations – either at the hands of pimps, potential johns or just life on the streets. We know that The Deuce is a show about the seedier side of life in the 1970s, in certain areas of New York. Corruption is everywhere and it seems like no one is immune to taking a bribe – as long as it stays under wraps. Police take payouts in order stay out of certain geographic areas. Pimps trade their girls like it’s no big deal – after all, their girls are nothing but a source of profitable holes (sorry if that is too blunt but let’s face it,...

HBO Documentary Films: SPIELBERG

HBO Documentary Films: SPIELBERG

Overview: One of the most famous filmmakers in the world, Steven Spielberg pulls back the curtain on his remarkable career more than ever before in the exclusive HBO presentation Spielberg. Directed and produced by award-winning documentarian Susan Lacy, this unprecedented feature-length documentary examines the filmmaker’s filmography in depth. She draws on nearly 30 hours of exclusive interviews with the director, who opens up about his bittersweet childhood and lifelong obsession with moviemaking, his precocious early work as a TV “wunderkind,” his rise to fame through an incredible string of blockbusters, his later forays into more...

Sarah Jessica Parker Ready for DIVORCE Season 2; Not “Sex And the City” 3

HBO’s is already eyeing what is coming in the new year. That includes another round with Sarah Jessica Parker and Thomas Haden Church as Frances and Robert DuFrene in DIVORCE. The show will make itself back around in January 2018. Joining the leads again are Molly Shannon as Diane, Frances’ high-strung friend, who has a successful husband, a beautiful house and no children; Talia Balsam as Dallas, Frances’ close friend, who has been both widowed and divorced; Tracy Letts as Nick, Diane’s husband; Sterling Jerins as Lila, Frances’ and Robert’s daughter; and Charlie Kilgore as Tom, their son.

Will WESTWORLD Show Us New Worlds In Season Two?

Will WESTWORLD Show Us New Worlds In Season Two?

At this time we are not sure when we will see the second season of WESTWORLD but you can be sure that HBO will be teasing us with it up until then. It seems one such tidbit regarding the show has surfaced. At a recent event, the Vanity Fair Summit (whatever that is), the executive producers  Jonathan Nolan and Lisa Joy were asked point blank why Rome World and Medieval World were no referenced in Season One. Their response was “Well, we had to save something for Season Two.” Was that just a sarcastic throwaway quip or a hint of what is to come? The verdict is still out. Even a re-watch of the Tease out there doesn’t reveal any...

HBO Comedy Special: FELIPE ESPARZA: TRANSLATE THIS – Review

HBO Comedy Special: FELIPE ESPARZA: TRANSLATE THIS – Review

Well, first things first, who is Felipe Esparza and why does he warrant an HBO comedy special? Evidently, he is the winner of 2010’s run of Last Comic Standing. Yeah, I didn’t know that either and since then he has honed his shtick and even acted some. Superstore, anyone? He even has a weekly podcast out called “What’s Up Fool?” so I guess he is doing alright and I’m the one out of the loop because I never heard of him. Well, I’ve heard him now and he has a story to tell and he makes it funny. That is a good quality for a comedian to have. He admits in the clip I offer below that he has added a bit to create a character who is...

Vice Principals: “The King”

Vice Principals: “The King”

This weeks episode of Vice Principals added a few more unexpected twists and turns to the tale of “Who shot Neal Gamby?” Despite Lee Russell’s spiral into what we can only presume will be the madness that ultimately destroys him, it was calm ol’ Ray Liptrapp that stole the show for me. Neal is still on the prowl and decides to turn his attentions to Snodgrass’ new beau Brian (Fisher Stevens) who Gamby now holds as his number one suspect, however, Brian clearly is not the perpetrator and Gamby is starting to clutch at straws. Meanwhile, Russell is a man on the verge of a nervous breakdown as he struggles to gain...

The Deuce: “I See Money”

The Deuce: “I See Money”

This show has certainly been no shortage of dramatic moments so far in the first three episodes. And HBO continues to keep the shocks coming in episode four “I See Money.” Vinnie (James Franco) has opened the Hi-Hat and sees immediate success. As commented on in the episode, Vinnie has the personality to appeal to different kinds of people and the ability with his bar to bring them all together.  To be a haven for the outcasts.  But when the inner workings of the deals between him and Rudy (Michael Rispoli) become threatened, you have to wonder if they have enough power to keep the people in line.  I still don’t fully...

HBO Documentary Films: CLĺNICA DE MIGRANTES

HBO Documentary Films: CLĺNICA DE MIGRANTES

Overview: Underserved and ignored, undocumented immigrants with medical issues often end up in emergency rooms for care, a costly last resort in which patients can be charged thousands of dollars for little more than an aspirin. Filmmaker Maxim Pozdorovkin (HBO’s PUSSY RIOT: A PUNK PRAYER) shines a well-deserved light on Puentes de Salud, a health-care clinic in South Philadelphia, serves a population that all-too-easily slips through the cracks. At the facility, health volunteers address this problem by serving uninsured Latino immigrants who have nowhere else to turn and are increasingly reluctant to seek care in the current...

Movies On HBO: “Why Him?”

Movies On HBO: “Why Him?”

HBOWatch Editors were not able to line-up a writer to review WHY HIM? That doesn’t mean we don’t want to draw your attention to this R-rated comedy that came out December of last year. One reason it might appear on the schedule this month is because it stars James Franco, who is playing Vincent & Frankie Martino on THE DEUCE right now. He only appears in this movie as one character named Laird Mayhew. The title question refers to him. Even without knowing the premise of the movie you get the sense that someone is not happy that Laird is in the picture. Details straight from the producing studio, Twentieth Century Fox sums it up:...

Game of Thrones News Roundup: Stars Engaged, Season 8 News,  and Spin-off Hints

The weather is getting cooler…winter is coming…and Season Six of Game of Thrones which aired this July seems farther and farther away. Most of us have stowed our swords and gotten out our sweaters (or Ikea-rug cloaks if you’re into that) and found something else to do on Sunday nights.  However, even though HBO hasn’t started filming Season Seven, yet, there’s lots of news to stay on top of, if you’re a Thrones fan! 1) Kit Harington and Rose Leslie are Engaged! Rumors have been going around for months now, that the two Game of Thrones stars who met on set in 2012, and warmed hearts with their...
