Movie Review: Annabelle

Movie Review: Annabelle

I don’t go much for scary movies. And I go even less for ones with creepy dolls. So of course I reviewed Annabelle. Why not? For those of you that also don’t enjoy horror or scary dolls, Annabelle is the sequel/prequel to The Conjuring. In The Conjuring, a discussion is had about a doll Annabelle that terrorized the lives of two women. Annabelle tells the story of how the doll came to be. Having not seen The Conjuring, I appreciated that I didn’t feel a lack of information or understanding.  At times with prequels, not seeing the original work creates a detriment to the film.  In this case, I was pleased to know that...

Movie Review: A Walk Among The Tombstones

Movie Review: A Walk Among The Tombstones

To those out there saying something like ‘ah well, this is just another Taken’. Rejoice my friends, Taken this is not, instead what A Walk Among The Tombstones proved to be was an incredibly dark and haunting, yet possibly predictable experience. This is a film which basked on Neeson’s talent as an observant and composed leading man and its this successful style which has been ever so present in his films in the last decade.  A Walk Among The Tombstones is based around former cop and now ‘unlicensed’ private detective Matthew Scudder (Liam Neeson) who has been asked to do a job for a local drug trafficker...

This exclusive HBO special, which debuted SUNDAY, JANUARY 31 follows journalist Ben Anderson as he embeds with Iraqi fighters battling the Islamic State.

BROTHERS IN ATLANTA Not Coming To HBO

BROTHERS IN ATLANTA Not Coming To HBO

For every show that makes the cut there are twice as many that do not. BROTHERS IN ATLANTA is such a project that at the end of the day didn’t make it. Our description stated: Its basic premise takes us to the heart of Atlanta with characters Langston and Moose played by Riddle & Salahuddin respectively. Langston is a DJ and Moose is a backup singer for hire so the series will look into the music scene of the Peach State city and, of course, explore the lives and loves of these guys. Jaden Smith plays a rowdy neighbor of Langston and Rudolph and Maya Rudolf personifies Moose’s boss. We have been tracking this work from...

Movie Review: True Story

Movie Review: True Story

True Story felt like it missed the mark on a few occasions in its attempt at telling the story of Christian Longo and Michael Finkel, however, the story is compelling enough to carry it through and with the help of James Franco and Jonah Hill it was actually pretty entertaining. However, I struggled at times with the film making itself, as it appeared to tick all the boxes for it to be a great thriller but it just lacked substance and artistic finesse to push it into that category. At times I was reminded of the Denis Villeneuve film Prisoners which is a very atmospheric and gripping thriller about two children kidnapped from their family...

HBO Development Slate: Bill Hader, Dern, & More

HBO Development Slate: Bill Hader, Dern, & More

This short Slate report just goes to prove that big name people would love to work with HBO to get some quality work out there. Bill Hader, Laura Dern, Viola Davis, Judd Apatow and Robert Redford are such talents out to do just that. Below is a quick look at what they hope to present.   Hader Hopes Hitman Happens at HBO HBO has picked up another pilot offer and this one comes from comedic talent Bill Hader.

New Teasers for Game of Thrones Season Six Released

New Teasers for Game of Thrones Season Six Released

We’re expecting a trailer for HBO’s much anticipated sixth season of Game of Thrones any day now, but while we wait, HBO has treated us to three short teasers that center around three of the major Houses of Westeros, Stark, Lannister, and Targaryen. While the teasers, which focus around the battle-battered banners of each House and have no new footage from the latest season, leave a lot to the imagination, they do feature sound-bites from Season Six which offer oblique clues as to the future of each House in the upcoming season. The teasers are short and sweet– just enough to make us wish April 24th wasn’t so far...

Get Ready For VINYL’s Soundtrack Explosion!

Get Ready For VINYL’s Soundtrack Explosion!

VINYL’s big premiere date is February 14 and will explode on the screen with all the sights and sounds of a red-hot musical moment in history. So, naturally there would be a soundtrack so rich and vibrant to capture the times and naturally, there would be a soundtrack album as well. But there is not just an album of cuts but a 10-week sonic blast that will rival anything out there. Atlantic Records and Warner Bros. records are mixing up Vinyl: Music From the HBO Original Series – Volume One. You will be able to purchase either a hard copy or get it via a digital download. Then, and catch this, each Friday prior to a new Sunday episode of...

An “Invitation to the Set” of Girls Season 5

An “Invitation to the Set” of Girls Season 5

If you are a huge Girls fan like me then you may want to watch the recent “Invitation to the Set” promo released in anticipation of season 5 starting on February 21st. It looks as though its going to be a game changer of a season and could possibly end the frustrating undulations of poorly judged life choices and impulsive decisions. The teasers and promos have been fairly vague so far with just a few hints to what the season might hold for our leading ladies, but in the “Invitation to the Set” video, Lena Dunham exposes some interesting information that has provoked some interesting thoughts. I shall follow the same...

HBO Miniseries: LEWIS AND CLARK Being Reworked

HBO Miniseries: LEWIS AND CLARK Being Reworked

Speaking about projects being reworked (see: WESTWORLD) the situation with the major HBO miniseries LEWIS AND CLARK seems to be a major overhaul of the scary kind and that is not good. First the sweeping six-hour endeavor hit a snag, to use the production team’s words, with “internal and external, weather-related factors,” leading to a “rough shoot” so far.   Then this past summer the director John Curran and the director of photography Rob Hardy left over the infamous “creative differences” reason. Then the trail went cold, as it were, and the project seemed dead in the water. Finally, we now have a little to go on about the...

Judd Apatow’s CRASHING Picked Up As HBO Series

Judd Apatow’s CRASHING Picked Up As HBO Series

Back in September of last year we learned that Judd Apatow was looking for another series to bring HBO’s way. We didn’t know then that GIRLS, where he serves as an executive producer, was going to end in 2017. Luckily he had CRASHING in the works with colleague Pete Holmes. That concept has just got picked up for a series. CRASHING is a single-camera comedy all about a comedian who spends his lonely life crashing on other comedians couches  all across New York City after his wife leaves him. It sounds like a simple premise, but consider that Pete Holmes plays the only recurring characters and each week he is in a different crash pad...
