VINYL Season One Finale: “Alibi”

VINYL Season One Finale: “Alibi”

Well, that’s all folks! Vinyl has reached its closing scene, we have landed back on the ground after flying high in the rip-roaring world of 1970’s New York. Have no fear though as HBO have confirmed that a second season will be happening so that final, awkward and intense stare between Richie and Zak will be explained…along with a whole load of other things that have been left open ended. The season finale mirrored the season premiere in that we were back at a New York Dolls gig, someone was murdered, Richie was sober and just to give it an extra kicker the over stylized look of the premiere was reprised with some...

One More Game of Thrones Season 6 Trailer

One More Game of Thrones Season 6 Trailer

With just less than a week before the premier of Game of Thrones, HBO’s newest teaser for the sixth season of it’s incredibly successful show is the last touch in a successful marketing campaign that began earlier this spring. The newly released teaser, which you can view below, doesn’t have a lot of new information in it, but in addition to some shots we have already seen in previous trailers, there are some new frames that are enticing enough to make us start counting down the days until Sunday night. Check out the teaser: “Wherever you are, wherever you go, someone wants to murder you,” Tyrion Lannister...

Beyonce Teases Us & HBO with LEMONADE

Beyonce Teases Us & HBO with LEMONADE

She has done it again. Beyonce is grabbing attention with another surprise event on HBO. It is titled LEMONADE and it hits the screen on Saturday, April 23 at 9:00pm. But what is it? It is clearly whatever she damn well wants it to be. The 21-second tease that dropped first a few days ago only offered the news of her arrival and had her sporting a tight hair weave and fur. Her face isn’t shown in the shot, but everyone knows who it is. Come on, isn’t she the only one who can interrupt the schedule and claim whatever time slot she wants on the network?  At any rate, all we get out of her is “What am I going to do, love? What am I going...

Shorter “Game of Thrones” Seasons?

Shorter “Game of Thrones” Seasons?

After months of waiting for Game of Thrones to begin, each season’s customary ten episodes rarely seem like enough. However, according to a recent interview with Variety, Game of Thrones writers David Benioff and D.B. Weiss have hinted that they may consider shortening the length of future Game of Thrones seasons as the show begins to wind down. This may seem like a frustrating development for fans of Game of Thrones. After all, who wouldn’t be disappointed when they got less of their favorite show? But at least one person may appreciate this development, and that’s George R.R. Martin, the creator of Westeros and...

HBO Documentary Films: MAPPLETHORPE – LOOK AT THE PICTURES

HBO Documentary Films: MAPPLETHORPE – LOOK AT THE PICTURES

Overview: “Look at the pictures,” said Senator Jesse Helms, denouncing the controversial art of Robert Mapplethorpe, whose photographs pushed boundaries with frank depictions of nudity, se xuality and fetishism, igniting a culture war that rages to this day. More than 25 years later, the HBO Documentary Films presentation MAPPLETHORPE: LOOK AT THE PICTURES does just that, taking an unflinching, unprecedented look at his most provocative work. From acclaimed filmmakers Fenton Bailey and Randy Barbato (Inside Deep Throat; HBO’s WISHFUL DRINKING and THE EYES OF TAMMY FAYE ), and produced by Katharina Otto-Bernstein (Absolute Wilson),...

HBO Brass: Don’t Expect A Game of Thrones Spin Off Anytime Soon

HBO Brass: Don’t Expect A Game of Thrones Spin Off Anytime Soon

With only a few more years until HBO’s epic series Game of Thrones, reaches its end, many have hoped for a spin-off show in the future. The idea isn’t necessarily unprecedented– the incredibly popular show, The Walking Dead has recently debuted a spin-off series; similarly, Better Call Saul, which takes viewers back to the world of Breaking Bad is almost finished with a successful second season. Spin-off series are all the rage it seems, and for networks, these shows offer an almost guaranteed promise of revenue from a large pool of already existing fans. Nevertheless,  according to recent reports by Entertainment...

Togetherness – What Could Have Been

Togetherness – What Could Have Been

Since Togetherness ended in such an abrupt but perfectly placed way for a next season, I postulated what the third season could have been. Tina (Amanda Peet) gets pleasantly pregnant with Alex (Steve Zissis).  While at first Alex wants them to be a couple, Tina balks.  The two begin waffling over whether they can manage being a real couple, or perhaps co-parenting is the better solution.  The couple continues on-again-off-again throughout most of the pregnancy, but as the months come to a close, they both have to decide how they really feel and what they really want from each other. Brett (Mark Duplass) and Michelle (Melanie Lynskey)...

Togetherness: “For the Kids”

Togetherness: “For the Kids”

This is it.  The very last episode of Togetherness.  I’m not entirely sure what precipitated the swift end to such an amazing show, but I’m a little bit fraught.  It is nice to know that the Duplass brothers will continue their creative relationship with HBO because if they can create this, then I know they’ve got some good ideas.  But for now, let’s bid adieu correctly. Tina’s (Amanda Peet) brief male encounter from last week and Alex’s surprise announcement doesn’t deter Tina from getting her lady bits checked out to make sure a bun can cook properly.  For the moment, her choice of sperm...

Girls: “Homeward Bound”

Girls: “Homeward Bound”

This season of Girls has really showcased the destructive power of the female leads. Each one has achieved something they’ve always wanted, and then completely squandered it. Jessa is finally in a real relationship, preparing to go to school, Soshanna has gone to the country of her dreams, Marnie has gotten married, and Hannah has obtained a good job with a great boyfriend. This is the episode, however, where we see the final nail in the coffin for all of their dreams. JE NE SAIS BLAH Episode 8 opens with Soshanna arriving back in America, and almost as soon as she is off the tarmac, she regrets her decision to leave Japan. There is...

VINYL: “Rock and Roll Queen”

VINYL: “Rock and Roll Queen”

Rock and Roll in the 1970s was a hectic, drug infused, frantically paced business. Add plenty of sexual encounters, drugs to seal potential deals and lucrative promises of sell out records, plus legions of fans and cold hard cash and you get the idea. Wow, what a wild time! As for American Century Records, it continues to take a pummeling in every which way. Colleagues test each other’s limits; bad decisions are followed by even worse consequences and relationships are strained and put to the test. I don’t even know what to say about Richie and Devon. It’s clear they are not getting back together – too many lies between the...

Watch HBO’s Confirmation Online or Streaming This Weekend

We know that most of you are probably anxiously awaiting Game of Thrones’ return on April 24th. But why not give an HBO original film a chance while you wait? Confirmation is hitting the air in about the timeliest way possible. With a real life confirmation battle raging in the real life Washington DC, we’re going to get an inside look at what went down with Clarence Thomas’ “confirmation” years back.

Here’s how HBO describes the piece: HBO Films’ CONFIRMATION stars Kerry Washington (Emmy® and Golden Globe nominee for...

Second Game of Thrones Season 6 Trailer Arrives

Second Game of Thrones Season 6 Trailer Arrives

With less than two weeks to go until the world-wide premier of Game of Thrones‘ sixth season, HBO is making sure we know we have a lot to look forward to. Earlier today, a second trailer for Season Six was released, and it looks amazing! In an action packed two minutes, we are reminded that the odds have never been higher for our favorite characters. Jon Snow lies dead as his brothers battle for his corpse. Arya is blinded, and learning a harsh lesson at the House of Black and White. Daenerys is stripped of her titles, and ultimately her clothes as she finds herself once again a stranger among savages. Sansa Stark, on the other hand,...

Movie Review: LUCY

Movie Review: LUCY

A woman tricked into becoming a reluctant drug mule. A well renowned professor who may be able to help her. A ruthless drug kingpin who will stop at nothing to retrieve his stash of drugs. I’ve watched a few Luc Besson movies to know that this would be a fast paced, almost frantic movie that captures a woman on the run, with increasing strength, stealth and telekinetic power that turns the tables on the bad guys. I’m also a Morgan Freeman fan, hence why I tuned into this movie. He plays one of the few people who can help Lucy. Now, what ticks me off about the premise of this movie is that Lucy appears to be a fairly intelligent young...

Girls: “Hello Kitty”

Girls: “Hello Kitty”

  This past weekend’s episode of Girls found our favorite flawed females in yet another downward spiral of negative emotions and self-destruction—with the only exception being Marnie, who has grown in spectacular fashion as of late. Nothing can be said for Shosh, but we can imagine she’s living it up in Japan with Yoshi and her new gal pals. Here’s a breakdown of this week’s turmoil:   “Showing your vagina to your boss is not an okay thing to do!” Hannah’s downfall with Fran has been a long time coming this season. Her annoyance with him has become almost a chore to watch, snowballing from grammatical mistakes and...

Game of Thrones Latex Sword Review: Ice

Game of Thrones Latex Sword Review: Ice

Here on HBOWatch we’re prone to reviewing all things HBO. From DVD and Blu-Ray releases of all your favorite series,  to vinyl collectible dolls to almost every episode of major HBO series as it airs. But here’s something a little different. We got our hands on Ice. No, not the real Ice we’re too clumsy for that huge thing. No, we needed a sword made not of Valaryian steel but of something softer… like latex, maybe. Well Fun.com actually has such a sword and while, at first, we thought it might have been a little lame. As soon as we started wielding it I knew it was a winner. Let’s start with the basics....
