HBO Takes Us Behind The Scenes of Game of Thrones Season Six

HBO Takes Us Behind The Scenes of Game of Thrones Season Six

With the Season Six premier of Game of Thrones only fifty-five days away, HBO still hasn’t released a trailer, but we got a few new glimpses of the upcoming season today. Earlier this afternoon, HBO released a behind the scenes video titled, “The Best Seat in the House.” The video mostly focused on the show’s camera operators, as they discussed some of their strategies for filming the show, what made their work most challenging (the terrain), and ultimately what made it so rewarding (the excellent acting of the cast). While I’m sure many of us are interested in what goes on behind the scenes to make Westeros...

Movie Review: San Andreas

Movie Review: San Andreas

From the director of Cats & Dogs: The Revenge of Kitty Galore (Brad Peyton) comes the big budget, high-octane disaster movie San Andreas starring Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson as the heroic Los Angeles Fire Department Air Rescue pilot Ray Gaines. He breaks every rule in the book to save his family from crumbling Los Angeles and San Francisco after a devastating series of earthquakes tear through the San Andreas Fault line, destroying everything in its wake. In a nutshell, that is about all this film is about. It’s a disaster movie where multiple cities are decimated by an earthquake and Dwayne Johnson does what he can to save his...

HBO Documentary Films: BECOMING MIKE NICHOLS

HBO Documentary Films: BECOMING MIKE NICHOLS

Overview: Much more than lucky, Mike Nichols wowed movie and theatergoing audiences alike for more than six decades with a rich and deeply varied body of work. Just four months before he died, in a set of final, historic interviews, Nichols opened up to his close friend and colleague, theater director Jack O’Brien. With disarming candor, wry wit and sharp self-deprecation, Nichols delivered a master class on his craft in what would be his last in-depth interviews. One of the great contemporary artists, Mike Nichols created a body of film work that received a total of 42 Academy Award nominations. Over his career, he won one Oscar, four...

TOGETHERNESS Season Two Premiere: “Hotels”

TOGETHERNESS Season Two Premiere: “Hotels”

Well, here we are together again with our dysfunctional foursome. If you are here you know them as Brett and Michelle Pierson (Mark Duplass and Melanie Lynskey), Tina Morris (Amanda Peet) and Alex Pappas (Steve Zissis). Also you know that this sad bunch is no nearer to being truly together than they were when we left them last year. You do remember all that, right? Michelle was in Sacramento with her Charter School colleague David (John Ortiz) and having had an epiphany of sorts Brett was on his way to surprise her. Plus, Tina simply broke Alex’s heart. Here, this gets everyone up to speed. Melanie’s situation is prevalent then when...

Girls Season Five Premiere: “Wedding Day”

Girls Season Five Premiere: “Wedding Day”

After all the teasers, trailers, Instagram posts and behind the scenes featurettes, Girls season five is here and episode one shows promise for the season and has opened a few doors for some interesting themes and story lines to develop. The episode takes place entirely at the venue for Marnie’s wedding, which is not in New York City but out in the countryside somewhere in a country house. This alone shows signs that the season is maturing and changing in that the first episode has taken all the characters away from their ordinary lives and plunged them into a different kind of experience. Hannah even proclaims at one point how scary it is...

VINYL: “Yesterday Once Again”

VINYL: “Yesterday Once Again”

It’s hard to top the opening scene of Vinyl‘s pilot episode. It captured the reason the show exists: the visceral love people can feel for music. If you don’t open yourself to being moved by music, you can’t really “get” a series like Vinyl. One can look down on art as a calling because it is a luxury: we do not NEED art to survive…yet, for many of us, art makes life worth living. This is the crossroads where protagonist Richie Finestra finds himself. He LOVES music; he built a career on the thing he loves most. But it is a career, and people depend on his ability to sell art. After his epiphany in...

Movie Review: Magic Mike XXL

Movie Review: Magic Mike XXL

Do I have to preface this with the fact that I am comfortable enough with myself to say that a movie about male strippers is good? More than that, it’s great! That sex and sexuality are put fully on display through nearly the entire runtime and yet there isn’t some prissy churchgoer who wants to shut the party down? No mayor who wants to ban dancing at the Prom? These are five guys who know who they are and what they do, and yet there isn’t a hint of shame to it? Better yet, these guys are proud of what they do. They know the impact they have on the women they dance for and they know what they mean to each other, and yet...

HBO to Produce 50 Percent More Original Content This Year

HBO to Produce 50 Percent More Original Content This Year

There has been some debate amongst scientists as to whether the universe as a whole is expanding or contracting. But when it comes to the television universe, there’s absolutely no doubt that it’s expanding at a rapid pace.  Netflix is making original content, Hulu is making original content.  Hell, even Crackle wants in on this brave new world where anyone and a camera can make “content”.  Whether or not you see this as a good thing or a bad thing is up to you. HBO has traditionally stuck to a “quality over quantity” formula. But in a world of 8$ streaming apps with increasingly comparable content...

Hader’s BARRY Pilot is Casting Up Real Fast

Hader’s BARRY Pilot is Casting Up Real Fast

Not too long ago we reported that SNL alum Bill Hader was working on a comedy called BARRY for HBO. Well it must be on a fast-track because news of casting the show has popped up rather quickly listing a few recognizable names. Joining Bill Hader will be Henry Winkler (pictured), Sarah Goldberg, Anthony Carrigan and Glenn Fleshler. To make sense of what character each one of them plays we remind you of the premise first. Just who is this Barry? He is an ex-Marine who works as a low-rent hitman in the Midwest. Lonely and dissatisfied in his life he begrudgingly travels to Los Angeles to kill someone and ends up finding an accepting community...
