“After the Thrones:” Official Game of Thrones Commentary Coming to HBO

“After the Thrones:” Official Game of Thrones Commentary Coming to HBO

HBO has announced that After the Thrones, an official show centered around recapping and commenting on Game of Thrones  will be debuting this month. Hosted by television critic Andy Greenwald and experienced pod-caster Chris Ryan,  the somewhat unimaginatively titled After the Thrones will be released weekly, a day after each new episode of Game of Thrones, allowing fans a chance to re-live recent events in Westeros, while gaining “lively, humorous, and sophisticated” insight into the show. For those often confused by the complex plot-lines and histories that Game of Thrones the show it is, this should be an entertaining...

Movie Review: Trainwreck

Movie Review: Trainwreck

Judd Apatow has made a name for himself when it comes to comedy films. With The 40 Year Old Virgin and Knocked Up under his belt he has developed an original kind of comedy film which uses the same bank of comedy actors time after time and fulfills its promise of bringing some gut busting laughs. Trainwreck is a bit of a step away from his usual cast, with the exception of Bill Hader who played a cop in the Apatow classic Superbad, and sees Amy Schumer in the lead role as Amy, who’s struggles through men, work and family problems with a little help from a copious amount of alcohol and weed. Amy Schumer’s character Amy is...

HBO Documentary Films: ONLY THE DEAD SEE THE END OF WAR

HBO Documentary Films: ONLY THE DEAD SEE THE END OF WAR

Overview: Australian journalist Michael Ware arrived in Baghdad in 2003 as a novice reporter on a three-week assignment to cover the invasion of Iraq. He left seven years later, having gained unprecedented access to the Iraqi insurgency and American troops, as well as a myriad of demons – the after-effects of witnessing seemingly endless, horrific violence. Examining the Iraq War and its moral consequences through the story of the rise and fall of jihadi terrorist Abu Musab al-Zarqawi, the founder of Al Qaeda in Iraq and the progenitor of ISIS, ONLY THE DEAD SEE THE END OF WAR is a harrowing and graphic account from both sides of the war...

Alfie Allen Spills the Beans on Sansa and Theon

Alfie Allen Spills the Beans on Sansa and Theon

Alfie Allen, who is reprising his role as Theon Greyjoy in “Game of Thrones” for his sixth season this year has a history of mercurial relations with the press. Allen, after landing in hot water with HBO for his proclivity to overshare enthusiastically, seemed to have decided to play his cards close to his chest this year. The actor, who has been told by George R.R. Martin Jon Snow’s fate, remained tight lipped this year, when it came time for interviews. Many commented that Alfie was being evasive in interviews, even compared to his colleagues who are all under the same instructions not to give anything away about the...

What’s On: HBO Schedule For April 2016

What’s On: HBO Schedule For April 2016

We all know that April is a big month around here. We got the conclusion of a few shows and the return of others. Of course, a few fanatics, not seen for most of the year flock in because of all the doings in a place called Westeros. The month is jam packed though will a lot of other content and it is all worth exploring to somebody so let’s get to it. Here is What’s On. You’ll be surprised.    Original Series: The inaugural season of VINYL concludes in April. It hasn’t been a phenomenal hit for HBO, but it has kept us talking around here. Bobby Cannavale, Olivia Wilde, Ray Romano, Ato Essandoh, Max Casella, P.J. Byrne, J.C....

Togetherness: “Geri-ina”

Togetherness: “Geri-ina”

  There are two things in this episode that I have personally experienced. First, when a woman you hardly know wants to be your friend and is playing off like she wants to be your best friend forever, you know, oozing syrupy sweet enthusiasm – CAUTION – it’s not going to end well. This is a scenario in which Michelle finds herself in.  Second, as a woman over 35 who would like to have children, it’s a tough choice to make because you are bombarded with a LOT of overwhelming information. If you’re single, you have to think about going to get your health checked out, then onto a fertility doctor to see if everything checks...

Girls: “Panic in Central Park”

Girls: “Panic in Central Park”

Lena Dunham tweeted earlier this week that this episode of Girls is “one of the most personal things I’ve written” because through Marnie we are taken on a journey that is so painfully recognisable to so many people by representing a generation’s existential crisis with who they are, what they are doing here and facing the bad decisions that have made up to making his realisation. Marnie’s life is put under the spotlight and given centre stage as it is dissected for all the world to see. This week’s Girls was a welcome change of pace as we had an entire episode devoted solely to Marnie, who didn’t...

VINYL: “The King and I”

VINYL: “The King and I”

As last weeks aptly named episode “Cyclone” closed I thought Richie’s world start to dramatically crumble into nothing, a feeling that has been murmuring through each episode since the incident at The Mercer in Episode One. Yet again, however, we are taken on a whirlwind journey to Las Vegas where Richie and Zak have their sights set on signing The King himself. But we’ll get to that. My problem with Vinyl so far is that I just don’t know where its going or what its trying to say. It has painted a fantastically realistic and enticing picture of the music scene in New York in the mid 1970’s. Richie’s...

Gary Shandling, Who Was HBO’s LARRY SANDERS, Has Died

Gary Shandling, Who Was HBO’s LARRY SANDERS, Has Died

Surely you know by now that American comedian, actor, writer, producer and director Garry Shandling died on 03.24.16 at the age of 66.  HBO stated, “Garry ushered in the modern period of original programming at HBO with his brilliant masterpiece, The Larry Sanders Show. All of us at HBO have a special place in our hearts for him, not only for his enormous talent but for his kindness and decency. We will miss him terribly.” He was a comedic master of observational comedy and satire and played it up well. Before that though his start in the industry was writing for the sitcoms Sanford and Son and Welcome Back, Kotter if you...

HBO’s TOGETHERNESS Cancelled After Two Seasons!

HBO’s TOGETHERNESS Cancelled After Two Seasons!

      Our mouths just dropped open in surprise. HBO’s TOGETHERNESS will end its run with the eighth episode of the current season which debuts Sunday, April 10. And HBO, who doesn’t seem to care much about ratings apparently is citing numbers as the reason for the cancellation. The series premiere, on 01.11.15 started off at 427,000 viewers that ballooned up to 2.6 million across the platforms but Season Two, which debuted on 02.21.16, has only seen 330,000 viewers. However, the critics loved it; Rotten Tomatoes for one. Of course, the numbers don’t lie – if not enough people were not watching it then it has to...

Movie Review: Vacation

Movie Review: Vacation

  Since this is yet another new movie made to be a callback to an earlier film widely regarded as a classic, I have an idea. Let’s go into a movie like Vacation as if it were a standalone feature. Let’s take all the imagery, references, and callbacks that it makes to its predecessor, National Lampoon’s Vacation, and put all of them on a shelf. How would this movie fare if it were being sold with the Griswold name attached to it? Can we survive this Vacation? Rusty Griswold is all grown up, working as a pilot for a small airline company, and finally has a family of his own. But he’s stuck in a rut. His younger...

New Game of Thrones Commercial Spotted!

New Game of Thrones Commercial Spotted!

Blink and you’ll miss it! HBO apparently released a television commercial today, which a well-prepared fan, managed to snap pictures of and posted to Twitter. From what we can see, there’s a lot of new exciting footage in the commercial, ranging from White Walkers to what looks to be a Tower of Joy flashback. With thirty days to go until the premier of the much anticipated sixth season of Game of Thrones, it would be great if HBO would share the love, and release this newest commercial to the Internet so we can all ogle at it to our heart’s content, and sate a tiny bit of our hunger for a glimpse of Game of Thrones. In...
