HBOWatch Movie Review: “Lego Batman Movie”

HBOWatch Movie Review: “Lego Batman Movie”

The Lego Movie isn’t the first movie-as-advertisement for a children’s toy that resonated so completely with its target audience, but it is the first one that holds up against one’s nostalgia for it (even if that nostalgia only reaches back a few years). As a branding exercise, it manages to hit nearly every major pop-culture-icon-as-Lego reference it needs in order to land with general audiences, but it goes a step further in becoming a surprisingly poignant deconstruction of the “Chosen One” story. A Joe Everyman lego person named Emmett, the idealized citizen in his rigidly structured world, accidentally stumbles into a...

Happy 45th Birthday HBO!

Happy 45th Birthday HBO!

HAPPY 45th BIRTHDAY HBO! We have been giving a shout-out to HBO for a few years now (39, 41, 42, 43, 44) on or around November 8. The cable giant went live on this day back in 1972. This writer has been watching it ever since. In celebration, we try to cobble together classic pics & clips that reflect back on the personalities and programming that has kept us watching over the decades.

We got heroes, titans and damsels from yesteryear and today. What fun; we...
