Movie Review: Ride Along 2

Movie Review: Ride Along 2

Two years ago I reviewed the first Ride Along film, and to be quite frank I wasn’t a fan. Now its sequel finds its way way to HBO, and surprisingly enough it improves dramatically on the original. One of the biggest issues with the prior film is how formulaic it is, and the fact that the action was pretty bland. The sequel gains a lot from having the characters relationships already established. We don’t have to go through an hour of setting up a character dynamic we get to go right into the plot line. The plot is simple. The two buddy cops go to Miami in order to talk to an informant, and end up enthralled in a big city...

HBO Documentary Films: CLASS DIVIDE

HBO Documentary Films: CLASS DIVIDE

Overview: The thought-provoking documentary Class Divide is a timely look at the widening divide between the “haves” and “have nots.” Young people on both sides of the gap offer unique and honest insights that challenge common perceptions about inequality today. In the final part of their trilogy about economic forces affecting ordinary people, director Marc Levin and producer Daphne Pinkerson (HBO’s Schmatta: Rags to Riches to Rags and Hard Times: Lost on Long Island) explore the effects of hyper-gentrification and rising economic disparity in one New York City neighborhood, which can be seen as a microcosm of the socioeconomic...

Watch HBO’s ‘Insecure’ with Issa Rae Online or Streaming for Free

It’s not every day that a network, even one as prolific and profound as HBO, stumble upon a fresh new comedy that strikes a chord with viewers the way Insecure does.

Insecure is a hidden gem that deserves your attention. There are several ways to watch HBO’s Insecure online or streaming for free (and some paid options). Let’s...

Westworld Series Premiere: “The Original”

Westworld Series Premiere: “The Original”

Directed and written by: Jonathan Nolan First off, who ever dubbed this show the new “Game of Thrones” has never actually seen it. I went in with extremely high expectations after hearing that comparrison, excited to possibly have a new favorite show to gush over every week. It didn’t exactly live up to my standard for an HBO show but it was only the first episode so I will save my compelete disregard for it until I’ve seen a few more episodes. The intro began in typical HBO fashion, similar to that of “True Blood, with the opening sequence involving a montage of creepy images. I was hoping the tone would have...

Movie Review: Deadpool

Movie Review: Deadpool

Before going into my deep, longing love letter to Deadpool, let’s address the elephant in the room. The truth is, comic book movies aren’t memorable anymore. This year alone, we had four additional comic book films (Batman vs. Superman, Captain America: Civil War, X-Men: Apocalypse, & Suicide Squad) and the upcoming Dr. Strange in November. As usual with big comic book years, it’s easy to get jaded expecting a string of superheroes that will probably take themselves too seriously. This is precisely why Deadpool is such an essential part of both comic book films and modern cinema—it turns the superhero genre on its head...

Who is Issa Rae?

Who is Issa Rae?

Premiering on HBO next week (the 9th) is Issa Rae’s new comedy Insecure, which focuses on the experiences of a young, black woman in an authentic and uncliched way. The basis for her show is familiar to the generation in which it is targeting and follows Issa as she tries to figure out her purpose in life. The show also deals with cultural and racial issues that are prevalent in contemporary black culture. While comparisons will be drawn between Lean Dunham’s hit HBO show Girls, which also follows disillusioned and confused young women trying to find their fit in life, it has become known that Insecure will address the issues in a...

“Westworld” Previews Garner Great Reviews

“Westworld” Previews Garner Great Reviews

Toted as the new Game of Thrones, the sci-fi thriller has yet to make its television debut but is quickly gathering positive reviews. Based on the novel by Michael Crichton, Westworld takes place in a futuristic theme park centered around the old west.  Allowing visitors to submerse themselves in a world of sin, violence, and gratification, Westworld is all about fulfilling desires.  But soon things begin going awry, and the story preys on a common human worry: what happens when artificial intelligence becomes sentient?  Take a peek! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IuS5huqOND4 As with Game of Thrones, HBO has proven that large scale...

Vice Principals Season Finale: “End of the Line”

Vice Principals Season Finale: “End of the Line”

Vice Principals has come to an end with a glorious, good old fashioned ‘whodunnit’ mystery cliff hanger. Forget JR, the question on everyone’s lips is now going to be ‘Who Shot NG?’. The season got progressively better for me, it started out a little unpolished, a little heavy handed and attempts at humor felt lazy. However, the characters have progressed and developed and the story broadened making it a really excellent, well rounded series which gives you just enough that you want more and more. True to form, the season finale was dark as we saw Gamby and Russell lure Principal Brown out on to the train tracks (I’m not entirely...

Still Waiting to Hear of THE NIGHT OF Season Two

Still Waiting to Hear of THE NIGHT OF Season Two

With the way THE NIGHT OF ended its run back on 08.28 it appeared as there could be more story to tell. As of this posting it has almost been a month and there has been no official word on whether there is a Season Two. Think of the possibilities. At the very least, perhaps Nasir Khan (Riz Ahmed) would always be haunted by the ordeal that one night in October and the aftermath of it all. The Khan family could also see lasting effects and you could wonder what was ahead for John Stone (John Tuturro). There is also the possibility of Helen Weiss (Jeannie Berlin) and Dennis Box going after who they believe is the real killer (Ray Halle played...

If You Skipped the HIGH MAINTENANCE Webisodes You Missed…

You all know about HIGH MAINTENANCE appearing on HBO Friday nights at 11:00pm, right? It is all about the customers weed delivery man “The Guy” meets around NYC as he delivers their purchases. You also know that it started out as a web series, right? They were featured on Vimeo, but now HBONow/Go has them. There are 19 webisodes total and most of them are titled after the customer seen in the clip.  Each edition only runs about ten minutes long and a minute or so of that time is opening comments from creators Ben Sinclair, who also plays The Guy and Katja Blichfeld.   Here is a crash course (oops, we hope you don’t crash too hard, if...

Movie Review: Steve Jobs

Movie Review: Steve Jobs

Danny Boyle has had an interesting career as a director with the ability to make large sweeping films that take you on a physical journey, to smaller low key films that take you on emotional journeys. Steve Jobs, the director’s latest film, tackles the legacy of the famous Apple CEO, spanning through three separate key notes pivotal to his career. When tackling a biopic you can choose one of two ways to approach it. You can either attempt to capture the person’s entire life or you can focus on a few key moments of his life. The specific focus utilized in this movie, you will find, is both its strength and its weakness. Firstly...

HBO Documentary Films: 3 DAYS OF TERROR: THE CHARLIE HEBDO ATTACKS

Overview: On Jan. 7, 2015, two brothers belonging to Al-Qaeda in Yemen stormed the Paris offices of the satiric weekly Charlie Hebdo, killing 11 people and injuring 11 others before killing a French police officer. Amidst a massive manhunt for the killers, an additional five people were murdered and 11 wounded in related attacks over the next two days, including a harrowing standoff between police and a third gunman, claiming allegiance to ISIS, at a kosher supermarket near the Porte de Vincennes in Paris. Drawing on exclusive access to hostages, survivors, police, paramilitary forces and intelligence findings and evidence, as well as...
