Surprising News As Terence Winter Out As VINYL Showrunner

Surprising News As Terence Winter Out As VINYL Showrunner

Needless to say HBO could have been happier with the premiere season of VINYL. Its viewership was not as high as they hoped. Though the critics seemed to like it well enough the audiences were not there. However, the series had been granted a second season only days after its 02.14 premiere fueled by praise from the likes of The Hollywood Reporter who called it “rich, brilliant and addictive” and Rolling Stone calling it “excellent.” But at the end of the day HBO was looking to improve the sorely needed dramatic series for its sophomore season and as a result showrunner Terence Winter is surprisingly out. Winter has been let go...

Movie Review: Jurassic World

Movie Review: Jurassic World

Jurassic World opened last summer to a record high box-office and positive critical reception, gliding in on the back of Steven Spielberg’s classic 1993 movie. But as time went on, opinions started to shift. No one said the movie was bad but it certainly had some issues that were overlooked on the initial viewing with regards to tone. Much like Star Wars: The Force Awakens, the argument falls between quality of story versus the visually enticing set pieces. That is, how much are people willing to overlook in the plot of the movie if the images on screen are able to draw an emotional response based on some other factor like nostalgia....

Girls Season Five Finale: “I Love You Baby”

Girls Season Five Finale: “I Love You Baby”

The end of this season of Girls brings about the stunning hope that maybe, just maybe, they might be growing up.  For me, I’ve always considered adulthood to be something I do, not something I am.  I am not an adult.  I adult.  It’s a verb.  Much like sending checks or walking the dog, I adult in different ways. I feel like I evolved into a more responsible, sometimes mature human being.  But I have a hard time considering myself an adult.  Seeing what the Girls have gone through this season though, I think they might be adulting in their own ways. Hannah has turned over a new leaf in her life.  Back to writing, trying...

Girls: “Love Stories”

Girls: “Love Stories”

The ninth episode of this season of Girls has us all asking some questions. How do you see people? How do people see you? This episode is fraught with the complexities of admitting you see people differently than you’ve always believed, admitting other people see you differently than you’ve always believed, and attempting to level those two realizations with each other. Hannah finally finishes the fight with Fran, who really can’t seem to let go that he’s being dumped.  She literally stranded herself to try and end your relationship, dude.  Take a hint from Elsa, and “Let It Go.”  Not only is Hannah...

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...
