Movie Review: “Epic”

Movie Review: “Epic”

Who knew that bugs, humans and fighting for territory amongst the plants, dirt and forest could be so monumental? This animated movie has all the makings of a soap opera: love, a journey; death; betrayal and a hero saving the day. Epic features the voice talents of Amanda Seyfried, Colin Farrell, Josh Hutcherson, Christoph Waltz, Pitbull, Jason Sudekis, Steven Tyler and Beyonce Knowles. Mary Katherine is a 17 year old young lady who lives with her father, who is a bit if an eccentric fellow. Her father is a scientist, and he has been looking for a race of creatures that exist only in the...

Bill Maher Will Attempt to Shake Up Congress

Bill Maher Will Attempt to Shake Up Congress

The Real Time with Bill Maher program is no stranger to controversy.  From smoking pot LIVE on HBO’s air with Zach Galafianakis to his controversial opinions on religion you’d be hard-pressed to find a more divisive champion for progressive, rational values than Mr. Maher.  Even this site has not been immune to the flames coming Bill Maher’s way receiving emails, tweets and comments blasting the man for his point of view. Not to be outdone by himself Bill is taking it up a notch in 2014.  The NY Times is reporting that Real Time will pull a rather ballsy stunt this...

TRUE DETECTIVE: Sn. 1 Episode Three Review

TRUE DETECTIVE: Sn. 1 Episode Three Review

Okay, I wasn’t assigned this post but the computer gremlins were taking over the intended writer’s computer so I had to watch the episode again and get it fresh in my mind before I took the review over; thus this reviews delay. So, here we go. As you remember our detectives have to come up with results soon as the occult task force is ready to take over the case. Luckily for them a depiction of the crime is found in the burned out church. It is a lead, but is it enough? We also got quite a bit of background about Hart and Cohle. How about Gilbough and Papania? Are they getting all the...

HBO Documentary Films: HERBLOCK – THE BLACK & THE WHITE

HBO Documentary Films: HERBLOCK – THE BLACK & THE WHITE

Overview: For 55 years, Herbert L. Block’s signature “Herblock” was affixed to memorable cartoons that were published daily in the Washington Post and syndicated throughout the country in more than 1,800 newspapers. A true patriot, he elevated editorial cartoons to a level rivaling and, in critical ways, surpassing prose journalism, giving “a voice to the voiceless” through strokes of a pen. In HERBLOCK – THE BLACK & THE WHITE, actor Alan Mandell portrays the cartoonist (who died in 2001) in scenes scripted from his speeches and interviews, and filmed in a re-creation of...

Girls Season Three, Episode Four: Dead Inside

Girls Season Three, Episode Four: Dead Inside

The aptly titled fourth episode of the already magnificient third season of GIRLS starts with Hannah finding out that her publisher, David (the crazy little guy who through Ray across a table last week) was found dead in the Hudson River without any explanation. Hannah being Hannah she ambles home and admits to Adam and Jessa that she doesn’t feel sad or numb, she is merely concerned about what is going to happen to her e-book. Classic Hannah. Thus starts a theme to the episode. Jessa tells Shosh about her friend, a girl called Season, (only Jessa would have a friend called Season,...

LOOKING for the Uncut (S1 E2) Review

LOOKING for the Uncut (S1 E2) Review

There is a long standing tradition of HBO being the network who pushes it’s viewers out of their comfort level, encouraging them to accept aspects of our society that might not be the most conventional. They’ve been doing this for so long, it’s almost expected when they premiere a new show. In that aspect, Looking has not disappointed. As a show that revolves around gay culture, it gives a voice to a powerful community in our society that has gone unheard for far to long in mainstream media. And while it’s stirred up a lot of controversy, especially when one focuses on the sex...

HBO Tweaks Schedule for Super Bowl Sunday

HBO Tweaks Schedule for Super Bowl Sunday

The Home Box Office audience is a sophisticated bunch.  So it may not have occurred to you that the game of football may interfere with your Sunday night television watching plans like Richard Sherman on a fade-pass to Crabtree at the back of the end zone.   Actually the normal HBO Sunday schedule will air as planned on Super Bowl Sunday minus True Detective which will be taking a break that week with the newest episode of Girls at 10PM and Looking, episode two airing at 10:30.  The change here will be that HBO will air new episodes of those shows on SATURDAY night starting at 10PM (their...

Nic Pizzolatto of TRUE DETECTIVE Going Forward with HBO

Nic Pizzolatto of TRUE DETECTIVE Going Forward with HBO

HBO has officially signed up Nic Pizzolatto, the creator and sole writer of TRUE DETECTIVE, to a two year development deal. Also, with the fact that it was HBO’s most watched series debut in over three years, TRUE DETECTIVE is likely to get a second season. HBO has yet to confirm that detail but Deadline.com reports that Mr. P. is preparing a draft of a second go-around to HBO executives. As sole writer of the series will he have the time to develop other fare? We will have to wait to see on that. If nothing else we will settle for more TRUE DETECTIVE. Here is what Pizzolatto said at the...

8 HBO Characters You Can’t Help But LOVE

8 HBO Characters You Can’t Help But LOVE

Perhaps you love that you hate them, or maybe you hate that you love them. Whatever your weird love/hate relationship with these characters happens to be, one thing is for sure, you have some form of love for them… I think. Jimmy Darmody: Boardwalk Instead of choosing the main man on Boardwalk, Nucky Thompson, I opted for Jimmy Darmody instead. The reason is simple. Right through the first two seasons of Boardwalk, in every scene he appeared, Michael Pitt stole the show. Portraying Jimmy ever so dramatically, Pitt is a phenomenally gifted actor. As odd as it was tragic, Jimmy lived a life...
