HBO Movie Review: R.I.P.D

HBO Movie Review: R.I.P.D

Normally, when I see that Jeff Bridges is going to be in a movie, I am excited. Unfortunately, I can’t really muster any enthusiasm for the movie “R.IP.D.” Even a heavyweight like Bridges can’t seem to save this one. Ryan Reynolds is some nice eye candy to look at and Kevin Bacon plays a real scumbag character (which I find that he does that in a lot of his movies). The movie starts off on present day, with Reynolds playing a Boston police detective named Nick Walker. He is partnered with Bacon’s Bobby Hayes. You just know that this partnership is not going to end well; the two of them take some gold (that obviously didn’t belong...

LAST WEEK TONIGHT Still Covering News on Its Week Off

LAST WEEK TONIGHT Still Covering News on Its Week Off

As we know John Oliver and crew had the Memorial Day 2014 weekend off, but as this web exclusive proves just because there was no show doesn’t mean there was no news. So Mr. Oliver does the best he can to predict just what the news might have been. Check it out and don’t forget to laugh. You should find something to laugh at surely. It is not a full blown show as it is under five minutes long and it is not slicked up with the graphics and clips but it might tide you over until next Sunday rolls...

VICE Season Two Episode 10 Review

VICE Season Two Episode 10 Review

Overview: In March 2011 the Tohoku earthquake in Japan created a tsunami that killed some 16,000 people and caused an estimated $210 billion worth of damage. The tsunami crippled the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant, resulting in massive emissions of radioactive materials, the likes of which hadn’t been seen since Chernobyl in 1986. In the aftermath of the Japan disaster, the government and TEPCO, the plant’s operator, withheld information about the extent of the damage, causing a culture of fear and mistrust. Three years later, citizens and the international community are left wondering if Japan really does have the...

Danny McBride to Star in New HBO Comedy Series: VICE PRINCIPALS

LOS ANGELES, May 28, 2014 – Danny McBride, star of the hit HBO comedy series “Eastbound & Down,” will return to the network in the comedy series VICE PRINCIPALS, it was announced today by Michael Lombardo, president, HBO Programming.

What’s On: HBO Schedule for June 2014

What’s On: HBO Schedule for June 2014

It is time already to move on to another month of HBO entertainment. Times sure does fly when you are totally engrossed in what our favorite premium channel has to offer. I think HBO takes it in to consideration that when June hits people are thinking of fun activities in the sun. That means that the channel may not be stuffed to the gills with its biggest and boldest content, but as you will see, it still offers some exciting and interesting fare. We have powerful original series, insightful documentaries, witty commentary and engaging sports and movies in the month ahead. Here is our look at What’s On for June 2014.   Originals:...

True Detective Season 2 Casting to Begin Next Month with THREE Leads

True Detective Season 2 Casting to Begin Next Month with THREE Leads

The word from Nic Pizzolato, writer and creator of the show is that, despite multiple casting rumors the show will not begin casting “in earnest” until next month. Speaking on a radio show called To The Best of Our Knowledge Nic said this: “Right now, we’re working with three leads. It takes place in California. Not Los Angeles, but some of the much lesser-known venues of California and we’re going to try...

HBO Films: The Normal Heart Review

HBO Films: The Normal Heart Review

If I had to sum up this very gripping and poignant movie in four words, these would be the ones on my list: acceptance, action, answers and awareness. I was very young in the early 1980s (in fact, I had just started school) when this movie takes place. I was a little girl, attending Kindergarten and had a carefree existence, with family that loved me and friends to play with. By total contrast, imagine being a man in the early 1980s – a gay man – and knowing that not everyone accepted you and your lifestyle. Imagine the fear and stigma of people treating you like a second class citizen, mocking you and openly professing hatred to you,...

Movie Review: Red 2

Movie Review: Red 2

Everyone loves to claim that nothing original ever comes out of Hollywood. In a way, that’s actually right given that most producers don’t go after stories or screenplays that don’t have the promise of a set audience and profit margin. In another way, these unoriginal stories can serve as templates to wrap an original story around. That means the movie finds its market, and the artist can see their vision through… mostly. Honestly, if you had millions of dollars tied up in filmmaking, you wouldn’t consider anything even remotely risky. You would put up the first romantic comedy you found that looked like a...

THE NORMAL HEART Has a Sequel Forthcoming

THE NORMAL HEART Has a Sequel Forthcoming

For those who may not be clear on the point, Larry Kramer’s life is up on the screen in the HBO Films presentation of THE NORMAL HEART. Mark Ruffalo’s character in the movie is basically Mr. Kramer. The axiom to write about what you know about is also clear here as Larry Kramer was the man behind the advocacy group depicted in the film. He took his life and wrote the play for which this movie is based. But it has been a challenge getting to Tony award winning play to screen. Barbra Streisand held the rights for the longest time, but Kramer and she conflicted so much over the topic that it never got made. When Ryan Murphy became...

The Comedy Duo  of John Oliver and Fareed Zakaria on LAST WEEK TONIGHT!

Since there is no new edition of LAST WEEK TONIGHT this Memorial Day weekend I decided to take John Oliver up on his offer from his last show to check out the Web exclusive he was presenting with Fareed Zakaria. Then I thought why watch it alone so I will share that interview with you a bit lower in the post. Now I know you don’t give a rat’s ass about the elections in India and you may not even care who the hell Mr. Zakaria is, but John and Fareed make a pretty funny pair here. For those who don’t know who he is Mr. Z. is an expert on foreign policy and international affairs and not only appears on CNN but is a producer and consultant...
