Aug 14, 2017

After last week’s episode of Game of Thrones left us a little singed from all the dragon fire, “Eastwatch,” was a bit of a slow-burn, focusing on conversations rather than...

Insecure: Episodes 3 “Hella Open” & 4 “Hella LA”

Last year left Issa a bit out in the cold, and trying to figure out how to get her game back.  Her girls gave her some hard truths to digest, and now it is up to her to work it out.  She’s ready to get back on the dating scene, or is she?  Waiting on a chance to talk to Lawrence (Jay Ellis) doesn’t exactly mean that Issa is ready to get down with someone else.  And it doesn’t seem like Lawrence is waiting around for her either.  But in the end, some couples end up finding their way back to each other. Is it possible these two really do belong together?   Episode 3: “Hella Open” Issa makes it very...

DEADWOOD Movie & TRUE DETECTIVE Season 3 Get Closer to Happening

DEADWOOD Movie & TRUE DETECTIVE Season 3 Get Closer to Happening

Two acclaimed HBO series are getting closer to seeing their next incarnations and fans should be excited about it. Both David Milch’s DEADWOOD and Nick Pizzolatto’s TRUE DETECTIVE are moving forward with new developments. HBO’s Programming Chief Casey Bloys was happy to announce the news at July’s TCA event. DEADWOOD is finally moving to the big cinematic screen. The final script for the movie is in hand. Bloys said –  “He totally delivered on this. If we can do for the right budget it makes sense. We’re talking to directors and we’re getting the cast together, which is not an easy task. Then we’re inclined to do it...

Game of Thrones: “Eastwatch”

Game of Thrones: “Eastwatch”

After last week’s episode of Game of Thrones left us a little singed from all the dragon fire, “Eastwatch,” was a bit of a slow-burn, focusing on conversations rather than carnage. The episode opened with Jaime Lannister, who we had last seen plunging down into the depths after an unfortunately short lived attempt at slaying Daenerys and ending her reign once and for all. He was about to be roasted, when Bronn tackled him into the water, but Jaime is still not happy about almost drowning– “You could have killed me,” he lectures as the sellsword heaves him, muddy armor and all, onto the shore. Bronn, not...

HBO Still In The Game But Not With Hackers

HBO Still In The Game But Not With Hackers

  The hackers made their next move. Whoever is behind the heist of HBO content released some of it today. HBO is not giving any confirmation of what was specifically released but according to news sources, it included episodes of Season 9 of CURB YOUR ENTHUSIASM, INSECURE, BALLERS and upcoming new series THE DEUCE and BARRY. That latter one is the Bill Hader comedy not airing until 2018. In response, HBO made this statement: “We are not in communication with the hacker and we’re not going to comment every time a new piece of information is released. It has been widely reported that there was a cyber incident at HBO. The hacker...

Jon Stewart Still With HBO

Jon Stewart Still With HBO

Hey, have you heard that David Letterman is coming back to TV via Netflix? He is coming back a heck of a lot sooner than Jon Stewart is. We are still waiting for him to grace HBO’s airwaves again. Yes, again as he did appear in his own comedy special back in 1996  called UNLEAVENED and also as the host of the special GEORGE CARLIN: 40 YEARS OF COMEDY.   Stewart has not made an appearance yet because as we all know by now his state-of-the-art animated gig died. It was killed in May with the following quote as an explanation: “We all thought the project had great potential, but there were technical issues in terms of production and...

HBO Documentary Films: BRILLO BOX 3¢ OFF

HBO Documentary Films: BRILLO BOX 3¢ OFF

Overview: In 1969, Lisanne Skyler’s parents bought an Andy Warhol “Brillo Box (3¢ Off)” sculpture for $1,000. An exact replica of a shipping carton for Brillo soap pads, Warhol’s Brillo Boxes were at first dismissed by the art world. But 40 years later, with Warhol’s reputation as a contemporary-art visionary long secured, the same piece sold for more than $3 million at a record-breaking Christie’s auction. Blending a humorous family narrative with Pop Art history, and debuting the week of Warhol’s 89th birthday, this documentary makes its way from a New York family’s living room to the contemporary global art market,...

ROOM 104: Series Premiere “Ralphie” & “Pizza Boy”

ROOM 104: Series Premiere “Ralphie” & “Pizza Boy”

It is time to check into ROOM 104 and we are really looking forward to it. Just like GETTING ON was this series is tucked away to the after primetime hours. I never could figure out why HBO, with all the other nights of the week to fill, likes to place certain shows at 11:30pm. We have already announced this latest foray from Mark & Jay Duplass before and are now finally ready to review it for you. Just count it as one of those little shows that are worth a look besides the big Sunday @ 9:00pm crowd. So settle in for our look at the anthology series which examines all the possible stories that could unfold in one ordinary...

HBOWatch Movie Review: “Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them”

HBOWatch Movie Review: “Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them”

If you are like me, and I do certainly hope so, then you believe that there is nothing more glorious for the world state than more Harry Potter Universe.  We are agreed, yes?  Good, now we can move on.  Admittedly, I have been a Harry Potter fanatic since I was very young.  It got me through some of the worst troubles of my life.  All of which is in depth discussed on my blog if you’re so inclined *wink, wink, nudge, nudge.*  But for now, let’s discuss the wonder of Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them. Briefly mentioned in the original Harry Potter storylines, Newt Scamander is a magical zoologist who studied a vast...

HBO’s Documentary Slate For Back Half 2017

HBO has officially announced a small slate of documentaries to the channel in what remains of 2017. That does not mean that a few others could slip into the schedule as the year progresses but for now, via the following press release, of six films to appear on specific Monday nights now through December.

HBO’s CONFEDERATE Takes Some Early Flack & HBO Hacked

HBO’s CONFEDERATE Takes Some Early Flack & HBO Hacked

HBO has had it rough lately. A GAME OF THRONE episode gets illegally released early and HBO itself get hacked for starters. The site VOX has a good breakdown of what the hacking entailed and even a few points about what has yet to be known on the matter that has the FBI investigating. Check it out for details regarding stolen content and more. Also developing has been backlash regarding the intended series CONFEDERATE. We reported just recently that the series will be the next for David Benioff and D. B. Weiss after GAME OF THRONES. As stated it takes place in an alternate timeline, where the Southern states successfully have seceded from...

HBO Comedy Special GEORGE LOPEZ: THE WALL, LIVE FROM WASHINGTON D. C.

HBO Comedy Special GEORGE LOPEZ: THE WALL, LIVE FROM WASHINGTON D. C.

George Lopez is back for his fourth comedy stint for HBO and he seems pissed. It all started with AMERICAN MEXICAN in 2007, followed by 2009’s TALL, DARK & CHICANO and added IT’S NOT ME, IT’S YOU in 2015. He had other stints on HBO; above is just his comedy specials. Though he is a native of the U. S. (born in Mission Hills, L. A. CA), he is steeped proudly in his Mexican heritage. He was a son of a migrant worker and his stand-up routines have always reflected his ancestry and his ethnic perspective. Now comes THE WALL, LIVE FROM WASHINGTON D. C.  Being a live event, held on Saturday, August 05 naturally, there were no lead-in...

Game of Thrones: “The Spoils of War”

Game of Thrones: “The Spoils of War”

WOW. Game of Thrones was an undeniable tour de force this week, raising the stakes higher than ever as Daenerys finally arrives on Drogon, the Dothraki army underneath her at full force, unleashing her wrath on the Lannister Army. The entire battle is pure cathartic energy and long overdue for Game of Thrones. Though the pacing of Season Seven may be throwing off loyal viewers a bit, it’s understandable—Game of Thrones has been a slower-paced series devoted to character development and an experience of its physical expanse. Seeing Dany get from Dragonstone to The Reach in no time at all is surprising, to say the least. Though I...

Insecure: “Hella Questions”

Insecure: “Hella Questions”

It turns out that make-up sex has levels to it and depending upon how you see it, this determines how you move on. Episode Two of Season Two deals with the aftermath of the hookup between Issa and Lawrence. Molly forces Issa to explore what the sex meant—was it a “we back together fuck” or a “fuck you fuck?” I’d argue the latter, but who am I to shatter Issa’s dream? Well, we leave that to her core group of friends who, after she breaks the news that she and Lawrence are “talking again” quickly reference how they’re glad he’s done with “the other girl!” There you have folks, Issa now knows about Tasha. And...

Movies on HBO: “Collateral Beauty”

Movies on HBO: “Collateral Beauty”

HBOWatch Editors were not able to line-up a writer to review COLLATERAL BEAUTY. I think you can understand when I tell you why – they were all obsessed over GAME OF THRONES, what else? That doesn’t mean we don’t want to draw your attention to this PG-13 drama. Will Smith, Edward Norton and Keira Knightley head an all-star ensemble cast in this touching piece. Also seen on screen are Michael Pena, Noamie Harris, Jacob Latimore, with Kate Winslet and Helen Mirren. Here is how Warner Bros. describes this movie from 2016: When a successful New York advertising executive suffers a great tragedy, he retreats from life. While his concerned...
