Adam McKay’s SUCCESSION A Go at HBO

Adam McKay’s SUCCESSION A Go at HBO

HBOWatch has been tracking back since June 2016 that Adam McKay (of EASTBOUND AND DOWN, pictured) was working on SUCCESSION. We again announced in December that it received a pilot order. To help refresh your mind of the project here is a reprint of that last post: It is the story of the Roy family. This family is a giant global media force to be reckoned with despite all their internal and personal problems it has. The work has now put to casting the pilot pitch and here are the details.   Brian Cox (DEADWOOD’s Jack Langrishe) will play Logan Roy, the tough, powerful, and aging patriarch of the Roy family and head of a...

The Young Pope: “Episode Nine”

The Young Pope: “Episode Nine”

Nothing makes me angrier than having to watch something about priests and finding out that they were sick and abhorrent child molesters. This episode was very unsettling, to say the least. A lot of plotlines to get though and none of them very ‘feel good.’ Well, perhaps at the end it wasn’t so bad. Gutierrez (pictured right) just reminds me of a little lost soul, someone with no place to go, completely out of his element and down on his luck. Trying to build a case against someone in a powerful position is never easy, but he just keeps on finding that whatever evidence or witnesses he has just doesn’t seem to hold any weight and...

HBO Documentary Films: SOLITARY: INSIDE RED ONION STATE PRISON

HBO Documentary Films: SOLITARY: INSIDE RED ONION STATE PRISON

Overview: Located on an Appalachian mountaintop in Wise County, Va., Red Onion State Prison is a “supermax” facility built to house individual inmates in 8’x10’ solitary-confinement cells, 23 hours a day, for months, years and sometimes decades. Directed by Kristi Jacobson, Solitary: Inside Red Onion State Prison explores life on both sides of the bars, raising provocative questions about punishment in America today. Drawing on unprecedented, unrestricted access, Solitary: Inside Red Onion State Prison was filmed over the course of one year, chronicling a new reform program intended to reduce the number of solitary confinement...

HBO’s Spring 2017 Lineup Locked In

HBO’s Spring 2017 Lineup Locked In

As is the norm at HBO every drama hour is coupled with a set of comedy half-hours to make a Sunday night a complete package. 2017 is a slightly different schedule than the past few years have been; that is mainly because of GAME OF THRONES’ move and the arrival of limited series like THE YOUNG POPE and BIG LITTLE LIES. Here is our opportunity to see which shows are filling the calendar next. The comedy duo did not break up this time around. SILICON VALLEY and VEEP are still back to back. The dramatic hour is reserved for the final season of THE LEFTOVERS. HBO very simply states: SILICON VALLEY – HBO has confirmed an April debut for...

Movies on HBO: Central Intelligence

Movies on HBO: Central Intelligence

HBOWatch Editors were not able to line-up a writer to review CENTRAL INTELLIGENCE starring Dwayne Johnson and Kevin Hart. Nevertheless, we draw your attention to this film as it debuts on HBO on SATURDAY, FEBRUARY 11 at 8:00pm Man, Johnson will try anything, right? And as for Hart, well it seems that he’ll team up with anyone. They give it a go as a duo in this action comedy that also offers a couple other actors you might recognize. Check out roles from Aaron Paul (lately of The Path, also HBO’s BIG LOVE) Jason Bateman (lately of Office Christmas Party) and Amy Ryan (HBO’s THE WIRE and IN TREATMENT). But just what gets all these...

Westworld and the Role of Felix Lutz

Westworld and the Role of Felix Lutz

Cast your mind backs to the final months of 2016 when we were all enthralled by HBO’s newest series about cowboys and robots, Westworld. One of the central storylines belonged to brothel owner Maeve (Thandie Newton) and her desperation to leave the park upon discovering that she was a robot living her life over and over again in a theme park for the ultra-rich. Do you remember who got her there? Felix Lutz works in the Livestock Management division of Westworld and also works with colleague Sylvester repairing damaged Hosts. When Maeve became aware that she was not a human she roped Felix and Sylvester into changing her programming to the...

The Young Pope: “Episode Eight”

The Young Pope: “Episode Eight”

The holy (though truly unholy) ascension that Pope Pius XIII has vehemently and murderously fought for has come to a truly disturbing yet beautifully fitting climax in “Episode Eight.” By now, we are well aware that anything and everything Lenny does is entirely self-serving, masquerading God as his mask and taking brutal control of the Vatican with unfathomable self-indulgence. Additionally, forces continue to conspire against him at the Vatican, because clearly no good has become of Lenny becoming a dangerously self-centered bigot who outlaws abortion and homosexuality, lacking humanity and continuing to remain an unseen...

The Young Pope: “Episode Seven”

The Young Pope: “Episode Seven”

Most that kept up with The Young Pope thus far will agree it has cemented itself as an artistic and cinematically stunning series. It is breathtaking and beautifully orchestrated to fit each of its tones, from violently gritty to vibrantly lucid. We have watched Lenny—beg my pardon—Your Holiness, evolve as a narcissistic and vicious ruler akin to a dictator as Pope Pius XIII. His self-righteous nature has turned many against him, but Lenny always appears to have the upper hand. There are many theories surrounding Lenny’s intricate knowledge of everything occurring in the Vatican, but that’s up to personal interpretation. Let’s...

Movies on HBO: The Huntsman: Winter’s War

Movies on HBO: The Huntsman: Winter’s War

HBOWatch Editors were not able to line-up a writer to review THE HUNTSMAN: WINTER’S WAR, which is the sequel to 2012’s Snow With and the Huntsman. We draw your attention to this film as it debuts on HBO on SATURDAY, FEBRUARY 04 at 8:00pm. Actually, this 2016 pic starts as a flashback to reveal that Queen Ravenna, Charlize Theron’s role, had an equally evil sister Queen Freya, played by Emily Blunt. After that is established we jump to after Ravenna’s demise seen in the first movie. Now our Huntsman, Chris Hemsworth, needs to deal with Freya as she out to obtain the Magic Mirror for herself and chases and fights ensue. Also...

HBO Documentary Films: BECOMING WARREN BUFFETT

HBO Documentary Films: BECOMING WARREN BUFFETT

Overview: With a net worth of more than $60 billion, Warren Buffett is truly a one-of-a-kind billionaire. Now 86, the legendary investor still lives in a modest home in Omaha and continues to drive himself to the office every morning to manage Berkshire Hathaway, the fourth-largest public company in the world. But more surprising than his humble lifestyle and self-effacing personality are Buffett’s moral integrity and unique mind, which drove him not only to become the most successful businessman in the world, but also an unparalleled philanthropist. With unprecedented access to his day-to-day personal life, Becoming Warren Buffett tells...

The Young Pope: “Episode Six”

The Young Pope: “Episode Six”

While the season has certainly been full of interesting moments, this episode starts off with a bang. Or rather, some banging. And we learn that many who take the priest’s cloth do not, in fact , abide by its rules. Lenny’s childhood friend Cardinal Dussolier is not only having sex outside the priesthood, he’s having threesomes with a man and a woman.  Oh, my.  What would Lenny say if he found out? Or perhaps, he already knows? The episode is nine months after the last, giving Lenny a little time to settle into his life as pope. Esther has given birth to her miracle child and named the boy Pious. It is very clear that...

The Young Pope: “Episode Five”

The Young Pope: “Episode Five”

Jude Law continues to baffle and amaze in his performance as Pope Pious XIII. Whether speaking kindly to a constituent or threatening those who oppose him, his even tone and calm demeanor is always unsettling. Which perhaps is his most powerful asset in dealing with those around him. And a subtle enjoyment for himself to leave everyone around him guessing at his true motives and intentions. This episode centers around his relationship with Esther, a wife of one of the Swiss guards. The pope has been spending an ample amount of time with the young woman, and many people are beginning to ask questions and make assumptions. Cardinal Voiello...

Movie Review: The Nice Guys

Movie Review: The Nice Guys

Shane Black’s 2005 pulpy noir-mystery, Kiss Kiss Bang Bang was a funny, surprising little movie. Robert Downey Jr. (before he was Iron Man) plays Harry Lockhart and Val Kilmer (after he was Batman) plays the private investigator “Gay” Perri. They’re teamed up by a Hollywood producer so that Harry can learn the basics of being a detective for a role he’s been cast in, but very quickly stumble into a very real murder mystery. Now, Black is back in the director’s chair and he’s decided to make another movie about an unlikely pair investigating something that should be benign, but quickly spirals into something much bigger, and...

HBO Documentary Films: BEWARE THE SLENDERMAN

HBO Documentary Films: BEWARE THE SLENDERMAN

Overview: Two 12-year-old American girls lured a friend into the Wisconsin woods and stabbed her 19 times in an effort to appease a faceless mythical entity known online as Slenderman. But there’s more to the story than the dark headlines it generated. Delving deep into this shocking crime, this sobering documentary examines how an urban myth could take root in impressionable young minds, leading to an unspeakable act. Directed by Irene Taylor Brodsky (HBO’s Oscar-nominated THE FINAL INCH), the documentary covers all sides of this unusual ongoing case, drawing on an eerie array of Slenderman-inspired art, games and self-produced video,...
