Girls: “Full Disclosure”

Girls: “Full Disclosure”

The episode starts off with Marnie and Hannah preparing a dinner because Hannah has news. Marnie is aware that this is the purpose of the meal but wastes no time talking about herself. Ray broke up with her. For whatever reason, this news could not wait until later. It’s because of reasons like this that it’s really difficult to care about Marnie. She’s always thinking about herself. Hannah shares with her the fact that she’s pregnant to an unexpected response of support. It doesn’t last long until the question comes up about whether or not Hannah should tell the father. This is one of the reasons I like Girls: it can be weird, it...

Big Little Lies: “Once Bitten”

Big Little Lies: “Once Bitten”

Big Little Lies has been a tour-de-force on a weekly basis, and with only two episodes left, the plot continues to thicken. It must be stated: it is not helping that many of the clues are left to ambiguity, but as I’ve said in my previous review for the series, I have high hopes for the big reveal as I haven’t read the novel. (However, I undoubtedly intend to after the series is complete.) For the murder-mystery and social statement the series has established itself to be, it’s been a bit of a problematic nuisance that Big Little Lies is riddled with red herrings. However, I have my theory which I’m quite sure will come...

Movies on HBO: Ice Age: Collision Course

HBOWatch Editors were not able to line-up a writer to review ICE AGE: COLLISION COURSE, the fifth in the franchise from Blue Sky Studios. Nevertheless, we draw your attention to this film as it debuts on HBO on SATURDAY, MARCH 18 at 8:00pm. It all started with Ice Age in 2002. That is where you first meet Sid the sloth, Manny the mammoth, Diego the saber-toothed tiger and Scrat the…what is he?… oh yeah, the saber-toothed squirrel. That led to Ice Age: The Meltdown in 2006, Ice Age: Dawn of the Dinosaurs in 2009 and Ice Age: Continental Drift in 2012 before this, the fifth and final entry to date.   In Ice Age: Collision Course the...

Girls: “Gummies”

Girls: “Gummies”

With the show over the years, we’ve watched the characters evolve and learn how to grow up and be adults. Nothing could be more grown up than Hannah discovering that she is pregnant.  While it is no easy decision to make, for now, it appears she is set on having the baby.  How will this affect her life going forward?  Hannah is able to tell her mother the news when she comes to visit. At first, the news seems to be happy, but as Loreen (Becky Ann Baker) begins tripping on too many pot gummies and her thoughts take a turn for the dark side. Loreen has been struggling since the loss of her husband to being gay. While on the surface...

Big Little Lies: “Push Comes To Shove”

Big Little Lies: “Push Comes To Shove”

We’ve all been there: a point in our lives where you feel personal or professional unhappiness or feelings of estrangement, abandonment, loneliness, confusion, frustration or fear. Or maybe, you come to a crossroads in your life that pushes you to find a part of yourself that was buried so deep, you thought you wouldn’t be able to find it again. Celeste, Madeline and Jane have all come to a point in their lives. And that saying – ‘when push comes to shove’ – you never really know what you’re made of until you’re ready to take a stand or believe in yourself, even if you have to do this all alone, is palpable in this...

HBO Documentary Films: THE MUSIC OF STRANGERS: YO-YO MA AND THE SILK ROAD ENSEMBLE

Overview: Over the past 16 years, an extraordinary group of musicians has come together to celebrate the universal power of music.

Movie Review: Neighbors 2: Sorority Rising

What do you expect going into a Seth Rogan film? If you answered an opening sex scene including vomit, then you answered correctly. In this sequel to the hit Neighbors, our lovely couple once again finds themselves at odds with a bunch of young people over territory. When Mac (Seth Rogan) and Kelly (Rose Byrne) discover she is pregnant with their second child, the couple decides to look for a bigger house.  Their house goes up for sale and closes into escrow for 30 days.  During escrow, the buyers of the house have time to do inspections and have the option to back out of the sale if anything goes amiss.

Game of Thrones Season 7 Premiere Date Revealed

Game of Thrones Season 7 Premiere Date Revealed

Mark your calendars! After months of mystery surrounding the rather novel summer premiere date for Season Seven of Game of Thrones, HBO has finally released a tangible date for the premiere, and they did it in style. Determined to cause a melt-down over the news, HBO created an elaborate way to reveal the premiere date, encasing the the much awaited information in a block of ice, which they challenged fans to melt via an interactive Facebook Live experience.

Is THE MIGHTY EIGHTH Still A Mighty Go?

Is THE MIGHTY EIGHTH Still A Mighty Go?

The website NME is the only site out there reporting that THE MIGHTY EIGHTH miniseries is moving along. This, of course, is good news (if valid) as HBO fans have been waiting quite a long while for this companion piece to BAND OF BROTHERS and THE PACIFIC. The work, helmed by Tom Hanks’ Playtone, will be about the US Eighth Air Force’s bombing raids over Nazi Germany. It is another moment in the epic telling of WWII campaigns that Playtone has been chronicling, but it is taking far too long to get made for many eager fans. How does the site know of this development? Well, it seems that a movie entitled Magpie was shooting on location at...

HBO & BBC Up For SHIBDEN HALL Limited Series

HBO & BBC Up For SHIBDEN HALL Limited Series

HBO has an acclaimed history working with the British Broadcasting Company (BBC). They now add another production to the list entitled SHIBDEN HALL. It is said to be a limited dramatic series comprised of eight episodes and centers on one Anne Lister (pictured) and her quest to save her family home of Shibden Hall in Yorkshire, England. Evidently, Lister kept detailed diaries to which to draw from to bring the story to life. Our source details the plot as follows: Returning after years of exotic travel and social climbing, Anne determines to transform the fate of her faded ancestral home, Shibden Hall, in Halifax. To do this, she must...

New Updated HBO Movie Premiere Opener

New Updated HBO Movie Premiere Opener

Back in the day, when HBO was building its channel it was proud to tout big theatrical premieres on Saturday nights. To usher in each movie there was always a stylized opener. I found a clip that illustrates the changing intros through the years. Watch it below. In the 1980’s the big splashy opening montage came to the screen, it is the one where we soar across the landscape and finally into the heavens where the HBO logo swoops in, and it stuck in everyone’s mind. It is in the montage above; remember it? Nowadays those graphics may not wow you, but the nostalgic impact of the clip and that stirring music sure do. It let you know that...
