The Leftovers: “Don’t Be Ridiculous”

Apr 25, 2017

To say that this episode of The Leftovers was bizarre, as if something out of a feverish dream, is an understatement. In a very Nora-centric episode, we see her dealing with feelings of...

Insecure: Episode 7 & the Season Finale

Insecure: Episode 7 & the Season Finale

The first season of this HBO comedy hit off with a bang and continued throughout the season. Following Issa as she navigates work and relationships amidst growing into adulthood and figuring out who she is has provided both plenty of laughs and cringe-worthy moments for the audience. The show was a hit, and enough of one to already be secured for a second season along with other first season shows, Divorce and Westworld. let’s take a look at what we got.   Episode 7: “Real as F*ck” In this episode, we begin by seeing Lawrence (Jay Ellis) suspect something more is going on with Issa and Daniel (Y’lan Noel)....

Divorce: “Church”

Divorce: “Church”

Last week on Divorce, Frances (Sarah Jessica Parker) and Robert (Thomas Haden Church) continued with divorce proceedings, represented by Jeffrey DeMunn and Dean Winters. Frances learned that the couple is essentially broke as Robert has continuously sunk money into real estate properties to flip but has only flopped. Robert was determined to bounce back, not only financially but from Frances’ infidelity. He has a sexual experience of his own, though not entirely satisfying. This week Frances begins as a prospect for job hunting executives for a position with Sotheby’s. With quick thinking, she asks for her own name to be...

Westworld: “The Well-Tempered Clavier”

Westworld: “The Well-Tempered Clavier”

It is impossible to disagree with the fact that every episode of Westworld thus far has been compellingly unique and brilliantly existential. We have experienced the sentient growth of (mainly) Dolores, Maeve, and now Bernard. “The Well-Tempered Clavier” is the series at its darkest, with much regard to Bernard and Ford. I’m feeling heavy Hannibal Lecter vibes being channeled by Anthony Hopkins into Ford, adding to his sociopathic persona. There are many angles and approaches to predict where Westworld goes from here, so let’s break it down into our main characters. Dolores Dolores has existed as our predominant protagonist in the...

Movie Review: Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice

Movie Review: Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice

  Hoo boy, a lot to unpack here. Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice, is the follow-up to 2013’s Man of Steel, the movie which dared to ask, “What if Superman 9/11-ed Metropolis?” Now, Superman must contend with a public that questions if he is worthy of their trust, debates over whether he should continue being a hero, and suddenly it seems like there’s more meta-context here than actual plot. Because really, this is going to be the main storyline of the DC cinematic universe (Suicide Squad being relatively tangential and a completely different kind of mess to unwrap) and yet we’ve still got nothing of substance from the...

The Holiday Season Begins on HBO

The Holiday Season Begins on HBO

Back in the day HBO always had some special Holiday fare. Do you remember that EMMET OTTER’S JUG-BAND CHRISTMAS first aired on HBO? As the years have gone on though the variety of programming has dwindled. So when special treats pop up we give it its due. This year SESAME STREET is presenting a Holiday special for the family. Man, that gang is everywhere. I just saw Big Bird & co. (and other Muppets) on the Macy Parade playing in the background just a while ago. Big Bird, Cookie Monster, Bert & Ernie, The Count, Elmo and the rest of the bunch have lessons of the season for those interested. You got to know that they will be full...

HBO Documentary Films: MARATHON: THE PATRIOTS DAY BOMBING

HBO Documentary Films: MARATHON: THE PATRIOTS DAY BOMBING

Overview: MARATHON: THE PATRIOTS DAY BOMBING recounts the dramatic story of the Boston Marathon terrorist attacks (April 5, 2013) through the emotional experiences of individuals whose lives were forever changed by them. Ranging from the events of the day to the death-penalty sentencing of Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, the documentary features surveillance footage, news clips, home movies and exclusive interviews with survivors and their families, as well as first responders, investigators, government officials and reporters from the Boston Globe, which won a Pulitzer Prize for its coverage. In the wake of a heinous act of terrorism, newlywed couple,...

Divorce: “Weekend Plans”

Divorce: “Weekend Plans”

Last week on Divorce, Frances (Sarah Jessica Parker) and Robert (Thomas Haden Church) took the kids and made the trek to Frances’ parents’ house for Christmas. While Frances took her sweet time breaking the D-word news, Robert was quick to step in and take the blame for her. It was a brief moment of nicety in the ever moving storm of divorce proceedings. This week, Frances and Robert meet with their lawyers. Max Brodkin (Jeffrey DeMunn) and Tony Silvercreek (Dean Winters) are absolutely fantastic. Brodkin represents Frances and Silvercreek for Robert. While Brodkin seems to be out of wits and off his game following a...

Westworld: “Trace Decay”

Westworld: “Trace Decay”

After last week’s bombshell, this week’s episode opens on Bernard coming to terms with his horrendous crime. It would seem that Ford’s control over him is a lot stronger and a lot more complex than first considered. Ford can change Bernard’s emotion and direction at the flick of a switch. When Ford brings Bernard back online, his first reaction is that of grief and guilt. He expresses new emotions, emotions associated with murdering somebody. None of the Hosts have ever killed a human being before so Bernard is feeling them for the first time. Ford, sensing his emotions are spiraling out of control, turns off the bad...

Prequels Are Coming? HBO Considers A ‘Game of Thrones’ Successor

Prequels Are Coming? HBO Considers A ‘Game of Thrones’ Successor

With Game of Thrones in the midst of filming its penultimate season, HBO is already thinking ahead about how to continue the sweeping success of the award-winning fantasy show long after the final credits roll. The end of Game of Thrones, which began airing in 2011, has been in sight for a long time now. The shows writers, D.B. Weiss and David Benioff have pretty much confirmed that the eighth season of the show will be its last, and with the seventh season premiering next summer, fans are already bracing themselves for the inevitable end of what has become an incredibly well-loved pop-culture phenomenon. However, it seems that we may...

EW Elaborates On WESTWORLD Episode 07’s Big Reveal

EW Elaborates On WESTWORLD Episode 07’s Big Reveal

  SPOILERS! A big plot twist just hit us with Episode 07 of WESTWORLD. The episode entitled “Trompe L’Oeil” will certainly cause us to look at a certain character in quite a different light in Episode 08, “Trace Decay,” and onward. It might even cause fans to re-watch certain scenes a second time and perhaps adjust their theories accordingly. Let’s get right to it. And, remember SPOILERS are ahead. In other words, you shouldn’t be reading if you haven’t been watching. Okay, the major WTF, only hinted in our review, is that Bernard Lowe, Programming Director, is a Host under Ford’s bidding. The reveal happened in the...

Movie Review: Race

Movie Review: Race

  An athlete with the ability to streak down the track. Racial tensions that run high. A coach who sees more than just color, he sees talent. It is the world on the precipice of change. An economy on the brink of disaster. Jesse Owens not only made his mark in history as one of the greatest track and field stars, he was a humble man who worked hard and tried to make his way through life the smart way – not by fighting, but by using wit and intellect to get ahead. It couldn’t have been easy back in the 1930’s  when racial inequality ran rampant, and an African American man had to work twice as hard to prove himself, no...

HBO Documentary Films: UNDERFIRE: THE UNTOLD STORY OF PFC. TONY VACCARO

HBO Documentary Films: UNDERFIRE: THE UNTOLD STORY OF PFC. TONY VACCARO

Overview: In World War II, Tony Vaccaro played two risky roles, serving as a combat infantryman on the front lines, as well as a photographer who shot 8,000 photographs. Though he began as a young GI eager to record the war, he vowed never to take another war photo on the day the conflict ended, horrified by what he had seen. Directed by Max Lewkowicz (the New York Emmy-winning Morgenthau), this documentary chronicles the life and vision of this remarkable man, exploring how photography defines the way the public perceives armed conflict, and revealing the sheer difficulty of survival while taking photos in a war zone. Through interviews...
