HBO Movie Review: The Legend of Tarzan

HBO Movie Review: The Legend of Tarzan

I have always liked movies based on legends, folklore and dusty old fiction and the story of the Lord of the Apes is a good example. Alexander Skarsgard (of True Blood) portrays the legendary Tarzan, or Lord John Clayton III this time around. Margot Robbie plays his wife Jane, Samuel L Jackson plays George Washington Williams, an American diplomat, Djimon Hounsou plays a powerful Congolese chief and the ever charming Christoph Waltz portrays the evil Leon Rom, a Belgian citizen and envoy of King Leopold of Belgium. Of course, it really doesn’t hurt that Alexander Skarsgard is in fine form as I do appreciate a man who is ruggedly handsome,...

The Young Pope Season Finale: “Episode Ten”

The Young Pope Season Finale: “Episode Ten”

  Lenny’s love letters are actually improving his image to the public, but he still is an ass with respect to the issues of abortion and gay people in the church. Note to Lenny: it is 2017, get off your high horse and get with the times. Lenny, being the Pope and all, has quite the busy time: meetings with heads of state, debriefing with members of the Vatican (Guiterrez, Sofia, etc) and of course, dealing with the monster of the year, Archbishop Kurtwell. Which leads us to an exchange between Lenny and Guiterrez. Guiterrez revealed what we pretty much suspected: he is a homosexual. And Lenny is an ass because he wants to more or...

The Young Pope: “Episode Nine”

The Young Pope: “Episode Nine”

Nothing makes me angrier than having to watch something about priests and finding out that they were sick and abhorrent child molesters. This episode was very unsettling, to say the least. A lot of plotlines to get though and none of them very ‘feel good.’ Well, perhaps at the end it wasn’t so bad. Gutierrez (pictured right) just reminds me of a little lost soul, someone with no place to go, completely out of his element and down on his luck. Trying to build a case against someone in a powerful position is never easy, but he just keeps on finding that whatever evidence or witnesses he has just doesn’t seem to hold any weight and...

HBOWatch Gift Giving Guide

Christmas is Coming, or should we say that the hectic, stressful season of gift shopping has descended upon us and with it, all those hours of trying to decide which gift to give to whom and how much money to spend. Well, how about taking the easy route and ditching the actual process of going to the mall and waiting in line, or circling around the parking lot for a good spot and sit in the comfort of your own home to do online shopping.  Now, being a big fan of HBO and knowing many of other people that are too, what to give the Game of Thrones, The Leftovers or Ballers fan? Lots of selection out there – there are Funko Pop Figures;...

Movie Review: My Big Fat Greek Wedding 2

Movie Review: My Big Fat Greek Wedding 2

For those of you that watched My Big Fat Greek Wedding back in 2003, it was a surprise blockbuster hit. Many people in the audience could identify with the quirky and eclectic family norms presented. I know I definitely could relate to some of the loud, crazy antics on screen with my European heritage. In the sequel, we find our protagonists, Ian and Toula, surrounded by the same loud and rambunctious family, although some details have changed.  Now thirteen years later comes My Big Fat Greek Wedding 2. Ian (John Corbett) and Toula (Nia Vardalos) have been married for almost twenty years. They have one daughter, Paris (Elena Kampouris),...
