Are you Ready For VICE Season 5?

HBOWatch had kept up the regimen of reviewing VICE on HBO every week for its first few years but with increasing content added every season and the content seeming to be interested only by a niche audience we didn’t follow it weekly since Season Four last year. That doesn’t mean we wanted to ignore the launch of Season Five. A press release states – VICE returns to HBO for its fifth season with an hour-long edition on FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 24 at 11:00pm followed by half-hour shows debuting subsequent Fridays at the same times. Following the success of previous seasons and a growing partnership between HBO and VICE Media, the Emmy-winning...

Inside THE YOUNG POPE Opening Credits

Inside THE YOUNG POPE Opening Credits

HBO loves a great Opening Credit sequence, doesn’t it?  We could rattle off a great number of them and what we like about each, and we just might do so one of these days when time allows, but for now we focus on one of the most recent ones. How about the credits for THE YOUNG POPE? On first look, it appears that Pope Pius the XIII is walking down a hallway, in perhaps The Vatican, amongst the religious iconography displayed. To tweak it they add some subtle animation to the paintings as if to say things are a bit different here now. Then we get that wink from the handsome face of Jude Law in his basic papal garb. The sequence concludes...

Pete Holmes is CRASHING; Joining Him?

Pete Holmes is CRASHING; Joining Him?

Pete Holmes has landed on the HBO schedule now with CRASHING and HBO has been promoting it pretty hard. Of course, it wants to stick another good comedy on its slate, right? Could this be the one? For HBO followers it started with HBO giving him a stand-up special. Back on 12.03.16 HBO debuted PETE HOLMES: FACES AND SOUNDS, an hour gig in which Holmes told his audience that he was always good at making faces and sounds so he might as well have put it all to good use, thus his stand-up routine was born. His set includes rifts on sleep and nightmares; unexpected moments of comedy while traveling; quirks of the English language; how Brits deal...

HBO Documentary Films: EAGLES OF DEATH METAL: NOS AMIS (OUR FRIENDS)

Overview: The November 13, 2015 terrorist attack in Paris claimed 130 lives around the city — 89 of them at the Eagles of Death Metal’s Bataclan Theatre concert. This documentary spotlights the American rock band as they recount their experiences before and after the tragic events. The film explores the deep bonds between band co-founders Jesse Hughes and Josh Homme (also a member of Queens of the Stone Age), as well as the intense connection the band has always had with its devoted fans, which moved them to return to Paris to perform once again in February 2016. It includes accounts of fans who survived the Bataclan attack,...

HBO Goes Behind-The-Scenes of “Godfather” in New Film

HBO Goes Behind-The-Scenes of “Godfather” in New Film

The following news from Variety should excite many a classic film fan! HBO Films is developing FRANCIS AND THE GODFATHER a scripted movie that chronicles the making of Francis Ford Coppola’s 1972 feature adaptation of the novel by Mario Puzo –The Godfather. The work tells the behind-the-scenes story of the film’s creation, from Coppola joining the project to the casting of Al Pacino and Marlon Brando to dealings with the real-life New York mafia. The concept would truly be awesome I think. Think of the strong casting required to give us Coppola, Brando, Pacino and the rest of the cast and crew of the epic Best Picture winner, not...
