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,...

The Deuce: “The Principle Is All”

The Deuce: “The Principle Is All”

This episode focuses on four characters, their struggles, frustrations and insecurities with the daily goings on in their lives. Vincent (James Franco), Lori (Emily Meade), Candy (Maggie Gyllenhaal) and Abby (Margarita Levieva) are all shown in a state of malaise and wanting more from their lives. Don’t we all want to achieve personal and professional satisfaction at some point? Ruby and Candy take a little trip to watch a seedy adult short movie being filmed. What’s even more startling is how quick they are at realizing that the filmmaker in question is pulling a con job. He’s in it to make a fast buck, charging voyeurs a fee to...

HBOWatch Movie Review: “Hidden Figures”

HBOWatch Movie Review: “Hidden Figures”

So, it turns out that some of the most profound work done at NASA was performed behind the scenes, and not only was it done by women, it was done by African American women. In the 1960s, the United States was hard at work, trying to come up with the latest technology that would advance their astronauts into space, but would have them navigate around the Earth. Now, getting satellites into space is especially important because the Soviet Union has had a successful launch. This means round the clock research, team work and execution and results. But for our three heroines, Katherine Johnson (who is a mathematician), Mary Jackson (future...

Game of Thrones S7: “Beyond the Wall”

“Beyond the Wall” sees many of our protagonists (depending on how you feel about some of these guys) teaming up to go beyond the wall, into the wintery north lands in order to find a Wight. It also deals with fractured relationships between the Stark siblings, political discussions between a Queen and her Hand and an invitation from an old foe and how to best deal with it. Sweeping views of Iceland, the immense mountains, steep valleys and tiny streams that dot the landscape give you an ominous feel. You have the best fighters headed north of the Wall. Now, before we get stoked: a lot of these guys can’t stand each other. Past...

HBOWatch Movie Review: “Hacksaw Ridge”

HBOWatch Movie Review: “Hacksaw Ridge”

In a nutshell: HELL on earth. Imagine death is all around you: bodies blowing up, screaming all around, smoke, gas, darkness and decay. No matter how much gear you have on, no matter how much training you received in your army barracks, absolutely nothing prepares you for the sheer madness of warfare. Desmond Doss is a CO – a conscientious objector. He signed up for the army, but to help people as a medic. Ironic, because in the minds of his superior officers, warfare means protecting your rights and your freedoms at any cost, even if it means taking up arms and killing the enemy. Due to Desmond’s upbringing – a father (and former...
