Cersei Lannister: Enemy of the State

Cersei Lannister: Enemy of the State

Daughter. Sister. Queen. Mother. Queen Consort. Monster. Cruel. Sociopath. Just some of the many words that are used to describe Cersei Lannister. And while this woman is many things to many people in the Seven Kingdoms, to me, she is a sociopathic woman, incapable of loving anyone but herself and her need for power. Cersei Lannister was born to privilege and has never had to suffer for anything in her life. Yes, we all know the tragic story of how she lost her mother in childbirth when Tyrion was born. But let me point out to you that Cersei Lannister had a cruel streak a mile wide from her early years. Case and point: look at her...

ROSIE O’DONNELL: A HEARTFELT STAND UP Review

ROSIE O’DONNELL: A HEARTFELT STAND UP Review

Overview: ROSIE O’DONNELL: A HEARTFELT STAND UP, A UNIQUE HYBRID OF COMEDY, CONFESSION AND LIFE-SAVING INFORMATION. This unique fusion of comedy, confession and life-saving information, ROSIE O’DONNELL: A HEARTFELT STAND UP finds one of America’s most beloved comedians using a familiar platform – the stand-up stage – to deliver an important message. More women die from heart disease each year in the U.S. than from all forms of cancer combined, making it the leading cause of death among American women. But the majority of them don’t call 911 at the first sign of heart trouble. “I wanted to raise awareness about women’s heart...

Game of Thrones: News Roundup including Sophie Turner

Game of Thrones: News Roundup including Sophie Turner

  With the new season of Game of Thrones exactly two months away, a constant barrage of news, updates and interviews has become the norm, which is a welcome relief after a long interim of radio-silence following Season Four. This week has been a busy one for fans, as a HBO special on the making of Season Five was released, the Game of Thrones exhibit opened, and we gained new revelations into George R. R. Martin’s original vision for his epic book series. As the week draws to the end, though, still more news has arrived hot off the presses. Seven Books Still the Plan for ASOIAF If anyone was wondering if George R.R. Martin...

Heartwarming Moments from “Game of Thrones”

Heartwarming Moments from “Game of Thrones”

With all the dark, dramatic moments, blood-filled scenes that would make “Kill Bill” proud, and high body counts of favorite characters ever increasing, it’s hard at times to remember that “Game of Thrones” has good moments. I don’t necessarily mean a scene you enjoy, but rather one that makes you realize kindness is something that still exists in George RR Martin’s harsh fantasy world. HBOWatch recently did a piece onthe most shocking moments from the show, so it’s only fair to balance that with moments that warmed our hearts. They may be few and far between, but there is a great deal more to...

Movies on HBO: WALK OF SHAME

Movies on HBO: WALK OF SHAME

HBOWatch Editors were not able to line-up a writer to review WALK OF SHAME, but that doesn’t mean we don’t want to draw your attention to the romantic comedy playing on HBO. WALK OF SHAME premieres on Saturday, 02.14 and will air the following dates on the main channel: 02.15, 02.18, 02.23 and 02.27 as well as on HBOGo. This movie finds a reporter whose one-night stand with a handsome stranger leaves her stranded and in a career changing predicament. IMDB states it this way – A reporter’s dream of becoming a news anchor is compromised after a one-night stand leaves her stranded in downtown L.A. without a phone, car, ID or...

GETTING ON Concludes After a Third Season

GETTING ON Concludes After a Third Season

There is one more season of six episodes ahead for the hospital-set comedy GETTING ON before being discharged from HBO. Or, some may say, the plug as been pulled from its life support. The show, starring Laurie Metcalf, Alex Borstein, Niecy Nash and Mel Rodriguez, never garnered big attention, but did apparently suit the needs of the network. It never was given a big marketing push or touted as a jewel in HBO’s line-up. That just confounded this writer as this was one of my favorite works on the schedule. According to statistics an averaged viewership of 1.6 million agreed with me. GETTING ON reveals the story of the Billy Barnes Unit of...

Game of Thrones: The Exhibit Opens

Game of Thrones: The Exhibit Opens

The Game of Thrones exhibit is returning for its third year this week, giving lucky European fans the chance to get up close and personal with Westeros. The exhibit, which has had enormous success in previous years, opened in London, England earlier this week, with much fanfare. It will subsequently visit countries such as Madrid, Paris, and Berlin. The exhibit offers visitors the opportunity to see the objects that make up the world of Westeros—from exquisite costumes (including Cersei and Jaime’s get-ups as well as Sansa’s dress which defined her new look in Season 4) to frighteningly convincing weaponry (notably Needle, Longclaw,...

Looking: “Looking Down the Road”

Looking: “Looking Down the Road”

  “How do you feel about going back to John after we’re together?”   This man is only going to break his heart. I swear, it’s so obvious and it’s like watching a car crash. I know what’s going to happen but can’t bring myself to look away no matter how painful I know it’s going to be. I knew almost immediately when I started this episode how it was going to end. One of the things I love the most about this show is probably the fact that the characters are so unbelievably relatable. Patrick discussing his past as “Fat-rick” and his worries about eating unhealthy food was such a resonating scene for me. The writers of...

Togetherness: “Houston We Have a Problem”

Togetherness: “Houston We Have a Problem”

  Crazy Tina and Alex go to Houston, and for what grand purpose? So she can crash at her parent’s place, basically boss Alex around the entire time, while getting drunk and acting like a sorority girl who is completely out of control. Alex, in the meantime, is steadfast and loyal – but even loyalty has it’s’ limits. Meanwhile, back at the ranch, Michelle and Brett are trying – and I STRESS the trying part – to relax and have a good time while out on a date. So, Brett does something that Michelle totally doesn’t expect: he books them a hotel room, so they can be alone and uninterrupted. See that moment right...

Promo – Silicon Valley Season Two

Promo – Silicon Valley Season Two

Mike Judge, creator of the HBO series Silicon Valley, flexes his old school Office Space muscles in this new promo for the second season of Silicon Valley. Nerds and rap music combined in order to make something beautiful. Not much can be gleamed as to what direction the show will go in, but the characters remain as lively and awkward as ever. In the promo, everyone’s back in the game with Dinesh and his energy drink, Gilfoyle with his cereal, and Jared’s meticulousness all coming together to make this dysfunctional family of programmers miraculously coexist long enough to create something that will at the very least...

Girls: “Cubbies”

Girls: “Cubbies”

This episode of Girls is all about criticism and how we handle it. Each member of the Girls crew (excluding Jessa who has usual doesn’t fit in) are faced with some form of criticism. Criticism is something we face daily in our lives, and how it affects us speaks a lot to how we are as a person.   “I would like to know what’s wrong with me.” Throughout this season we have seen Shoshanna going to various interviews throughout New York. We’ve seen her nail a job interview, that it turns out she didn’t even want. So far we only have seen her utterly confident, and prideful in her success. Shoshanna begins this ...

Overview: This groundbreaking six-part documentary series THE JINX: THE LIFE AND DEATHS OF ROBERT DURST tracks Durst’s strange history against the backdrop of unimaginable wealth and privilege.

Movie Review: Edge of Tomorrow

Movie Review: Edge of Tomorrow

Was that your first time watching Edge of Tomorrow? You probably have some questions. It’s understandable; that ending and just the whole issue of time tampering, it definitely left the audience wondering what went on exactly. Looper explained the issue with time travel in movies the best by having Bruce Willis issue the statement to not think about it or you’ll be there all day going back and forth (don’t worry, that is not a spoiler if you haven’t seen it). So let’s take that approach with this review. We aren’t going to focus on the issue of time travel and tampering. Let’s look at the movie...
