What to Expect from HBO Limited Series: Big Little Lies

What to Expect from HBO Limited Series: Big Little Lies

The Australian novel of the same name, published by Liane Moriarty in 2014, is soon to make its debut on the small screen.  Big Little Lies has received plenty praise for its balance between the comical and the serious. It begins as single mother Jane (Shailene Woodley) relocates her son to a new area, attempting to get away and wanting a fresh start.  On the day of kindergarten orientation not only does Jane make new friends in Madeline (Reese Witherspoon) and Celeste (Nicole Kidman), but Jane’s son Ziggy is accused of bullying another classmate.  When he denies it, a schism forms between the parents.  Pro-Ziggy and not...

Cinemax Gets Mike Judge’s Return to Animation

Cinemax Gets Mike Judge’s Return to Animation

Do any of you remember “heh-heh” Beavis and Butthead? Perhaps you recall Hank Hill and his Arles, Texas brood in King of the Hills? Mike Judge, long before his stint as co-creator of HBO’s SILICON VALLEY, generated these mentioned animated works for MTV and Fox, respectively. Well, he now returns to animation with a signed on series for Cinemax. Not many details are known about the work, but enough to perhaps pique some interest. The work is entitled MIKE JUDGE PRESENTS: TALES FROM THE TOUR BUS and is slated for an eight-episode run (at least to start). It is said it will draw from the many stories told upon the old tour buses of some...

Movies on HBO: Now You See Me 2

HBOWatch Editors were not able to line-up a writer to review NOW YOU SEE ME 2 with the prestidigitation laden Four Horseman but that doesn’t mean we don’t want to draw your attention to this action movie rated PG-13. It clocks in at 115-minutes and is, of course, the 2016 sequel to the original 2013 film that we reviewed here. The movie from Lionsgate debuts SATURDAY, JANUARY 14 at 8:00pm. It will then appear across the channels as well as on HBONow/Go. Below is HBO’s quick promo:  Just what is going down for this elite pack (Jesse Eisenberg, Woody Harrelson, Dave Franco and Lizzy Caplin; replacing pregnant Isla Fisher) of Las...

Slenderman: The Ghostly Spectre Haunting America & HBO

Slenderman: The Ghostly Spectre Haunting America & HBO

Beware the Slenderman is airing on HBO on January 23rd which takes an in-depth look at the fictional faceless man’s impact on two young girls who stabbed their friend in the woods, to keep Slenderman happy. Slenderman was created by Eric Knudson as his entry for a Photoshop competition but despite these banal beginnings, the horrors of the Slenderman began to take a hold on internet users over the world. The frightening realistic image that Knudsen created began moving through the internet and ended up on fan fiction site creepypasta. As his notoriety grew as did the images and the stories alleging his real existence, putting him in the...

Alan Ball Continues Casting of Next HBO Series

Alan Ball Continues Casting of Next HBO Series

It does not have a title yet, but it is shaping up a bit of a cast list. “It” is the newest series coming from Alan Ball (at right) for HBO. We already know that Ball, behind the favorites SIX FEET UNDER, TRUE BLOOD and Cinemax’s BANSHEE, is creating what is called a ‘tragicomic meditation’ starring Helen Hunt. As a reminder of the project we take you back to our 09.18.16 post which told us the following:    It is about a philosophy professor, his lawyer wife, their three adopted children from Somalia, Vietnam and Colombia, and their sole biological child. This seemingly perfect, progressive family is in actuality harboring deep...

HARD KNOCKS 2017 – The Short List

HARD KNOCKS 2017 – The Short List

HBO has not dropped anything official about which NFL team will be the focus of HARD KNOCKS in August 2017. It is too early for it to so. But the buzz about it does drop early every year. It proves to be one of the biggest casting questions of the year for the network. Those familiar with the sports series knows the criteria that make a team eligible for the yearly scrutiny. A team cannot be selected if they were in the playoffs in either of the last two seasons, if they have a first-year head coach or if they have been on the program at any point in the last 10 years. That is exempt, however, if any ball club chooses to volunteer for the...

Movies on HBO: Demolition

HBOWatch Editors were not able to line-up a writer to review DEMOLITION with Jake Gyllenhaal, but that doesn’t mean we don’t want to draw your attention to this R-rated comedy-drama playing on HBO. The 100-minute film  from Fox Searchlight debuts SATURDAY, JANUARY 07 at 10:00pm. It will then appear across the channels as well as on HBONow/Go. Below is HBO’s quick promo: That doesn’t really give us much, does it? It is a relationship drama that centers on Jake’s character Davis Mitchell. Very simply, Davis is a successful investment banker at a firm founded and run by his father-in-law Phil. His wife, Julia, is driving them when...

GIRLS Season Six Promo Drops: “Group Meeting”

GIRLS Season Six Promo Drops: “Group Meeting”

Okay GIRLS fans, some more cool stuff has been released and with only weeks until the final season premiere, these chicks are doing all they can to keep us chomping at the bit. In the official season 6 promo, we see all four girls gathered in a bathroom which, let’s face it, is the ultimate place for women to gather and discuss important matters. It looks to me like the season is going to much less focused on love and more focused on the relationships of the girls with each other. The word ‘girls’ in its very nature suggest an immaturity and a naivety but as these girls grow up into women, they have knowingly grown further...

Goodbye 2016, Hello HBO in 2017

Goodbye 2016, Hello HBO in 2017

Apparently so. SO at this time we will post them and take a look at what was the highlights of 2016 and what waits for us in 2017. Enjoy! First is the piece entitled “2016...

Movies on HBO: Criminal

Movies on HBO: Criminal

  HBOWatch Editors were not able to line-up a writer to review CRIMINAL, but that doesn’t mean we don’t want to draw your attention to the action-packed R-rated playing on HBO. It is no wonder we didn’t get anyone as it debuts on New Year’s Eve. Specifically, that is Saturday, 12.31 at 8:00pm. It will then appear across the channels as well as on HBONow/Go. Below is HBO’s quick promo: Now a bit of explanation may be in order. First of all, the title CRIMINAL doesn’t really fit this movie. Very simply a criminal, meaning an expendable person if all goes wrong, has the intel and memories of a deceased special agent...

HBO Documentary Films: EVERY BRILLIANT THING

HBO Documentary Films: EVERY BRILLIANT THING

Overview: EVERY BRILLIANT THING strikes a delicate balance between sobering loss and cathartic laughter. Adapting the hit off-Broadway one-character show of the same name written by Duncan Macmillan and starring British comedian Jonny Donahoe, the film recounts a life lived in the shadow of suicide. Emmy winners Fenton Bailey and Randy Barbato (HBO’s MAPPLETHORPE: LOOK AT THE PICTURES and WISHFUL DRINKING) produce and direct the heart-wrenching yet humorous presentation about depression and the lengths we will go to for those we love. Filmed in 2015 at New York City’s Barrow Theatre, this documentary opens as Donahoe greets the arriving...
