Movie Review: Sisters

Movie Review: Sisters

HBO Saturday night premiere of Sisters debuts Saturday SEPTEMBER 10 at 8:00pm. Actually, I hadn’t seen the trailer for this film when it was first going around. A few TV spots had popped up, but those did not do much to show any points of the story or what was actually going to happen. If I wasn’t convinced to check this film out from the fact it is Amy Poehler and Tina Fey, the trailer certainly convinced me. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vRnhEjP3R-c The “good” daughter Maura (Amy Poehler) finds out that her parents (James Brolin and Dianne Wiest) are interested in selling their home. The same home in which Maura...

The Story of “The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks” Filming for HBO

The Story of “The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks” Filming for HBO

With Oprah Winfrey placing her support behind a docudrama about The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks biography, the audience will be in for an eye opening experience into how past medical practices were so cold and clinical. Henrietta Lacks’ medical issues were nothing but experimentation and research for doctors and lab staff. Henrietta was a woman of African American origin, born into an impoverished family. She had ten brothers and sisters and her mother passed away after having the tenth child. The family had been moved to Clover, Virginia and split up amongst relatives, out of necessity. Henrietta did not have an easy life: as a...

Movies on HBO: Alvin and the Chipmunks: The Road Chip

HBOWatch Editors were not able to line-up a writer to review ALVIN AND THE CHIPMUNKS: THE ROAD CHIP, but that doesn’t mean we don’t want to draw your attention to the PG rated family flick playing on HBO. The movie premiered on Saturday, 09.03 at 7:00pm and is still airing across the channels as well as on HBOGo/HBONow. To get the right vibe to what this is all about check out this HBO promo: Now who would have thought the Chipmunks (created in 1958 by Ross Bagdasarian Sr.) with hit novelty records would be a hot property today and headlining their fifth movie? If you want a detailed account of their historic antics then check Alvin...

Vice Principals: “The Foundation of Learning” & “The Good Book”

Vice Principals: “The Foundation of Learning” & “The Good Book”

The saga of Neal Gamby and Lee Russell continues further in the two latest episodes of Vice Principals and each week we are moving further and further away from their initial intention of taking down Principal Brown so that Gamby can become Principal. It would seem that this simple premise was merely a catalyst to create a deep and meaningful bond between the two faculty members and their plans have taken a huge back seat so that they can deal with more pressing matters. The only one who seems to still have an investment in the idea is Lee, Gamby has dropped the matter, like a child who’s bored of his new toy. In last weeks episode,...

Andy Sandberg Offers Another HBO ‘Mockumentary’

Andy Sandberg Offers Another HBO ‘Mockumentary’

Evidently, 7 DAYS OF HELL was a success for HBO and Andy Samberg. We failed to mention that another mockumentary special is in the works from Andy Samberg and company. They first served up some fun-time satire with their take on Wimbledon level tennis and now focus on doping in the world of professional cycling. That’s right, they are poking fun at Lance Armstrong. The comedy bit is entitled TOUR DE PHARMACY and will race through the sport of cycling (like it did with tennis) and also play absurd with a doping scandal surrounding one of the athletes. Samberg will serve as producer and star of the work which will include appearances by...

What’s On: HBO Schedule For September 2016

What’s On: HBO Schedule For September 2016

September is that time of year when all the channels, especially the broadcast ones, rush out their brightest and best with new episodes and new series. HBO plays a slightly different game. It doesn’t seem to go too hard in September to compete with the new launches, but holds back a bit and comes in hard a little later on in the year. That does not mean there is not something worth watching in the ninth month on our favorite home box office. The premiere movies, for example, are pretty darn good all month long. Below are some highlights of what is on for September 2016.     Original Series: There are two series debuts this month,...

THE NIGHT OF: “Part VIII: The Call of the Wild” Review

The limited series reaches its finale in epic fashion, and we finally know the full fate of our desperate “hero” and more about what happened the night of.  Now that we’ve arrived at this moment, do you still believe Naz is innocent?  Or has jail time brought out the true Naz and his violent past?  Is he misunderstood or manipulative? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=srb3rJ99OyA   Part VIII: The Call Of The Wild A controversy surrounding the defense puts Stone (John Turturro) in the spotlight. Detective Box has an inkling that perhaps his police work at the beginning was dismissive.  He goes back to camera work and...

Movie Review: In the Heart of the Sea

Movie Review: In the Heart of the Sea

Back in the early 19th century, whaling was a massive and dangerous industry. Whale oil was a precious commodity, used for oil lamps and soaps. The inherent risks and general hard labor required for expeditions meant that the sailors recruited were usually those who didn’t have many other options or were born into the job. There’s an interesting story to be had in a whaler’s life, and that’s exactly what Herman Melville is looking for when he meets Thomas Nickerson, a man who spent his formative years hunting one particular whale. His story begins with Owen Chase (Chris Hemsworth) heading out for one last whaling trip, ensuring...

HBO Documentary Films: HITCHCOCK/TRUFFAUT

HBO Documentary Films: HITCHCOCK/TRUFFAUT

Overview: In 1962, French New Wave auteur François Truffaut, aided by translator Helen Scott, spent a week in Hollywood with his idol, Alfred Hitchcock, discussing the director’s rich and extensive body of work, including Psycho and Vertigo. The resulting 1966 book of interviews, Hitchcock, became a celebrated bible of cinema for generations of filmmakers. Fifty years after its publication, Hitchcock/Truffaut brings this historic summit to life by combining rare original audio recordings and behind-the-scenes photos from the historic exchange. The film offers an eye-opening study of Hitchcock’s enduring genius and legacy, as the two men...

Movie Review: The Danish Girl

Movie Review: The Danish Girl

Note: the following review is for The Danish Girl premiering on FRIDAY, AUGUST 26 at 9:00pm. A fictionalized account about the true story of Lili Elbe, one of the first known recipients of sex reassignment surgery, this film follows the struggles of a person becoming who they knew they were meant to be. Starring Eddie Redmayne as Einar Wegener and Alicia Vikander as his wife Gerda Gottlieb, the couple work together to help him through the trials of transitioning and becoming Lili. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=d88APYIGkjk I want to apologize in advance if I make mistakes with pronouns or verbiage. I want to do justice to the film without...

THE NIGHT OF: “Part VII: Ordinary Death” Review

THE NIGHT OF: “Part VII: Ordinary Death” Review

Almost every moment is more intense as we build up to the end and all sides are digging in to survive. At the trial the prosecution builds its case and the defense deflects what it can and continues searching all angles. As for Naz he seems settled in the Rikers life while those on the outside fight for him or damn him. Here is a Part VI recap before we see where this all leads in Part VII. Now the defense tries its luck. Some damning evidence faces Nasir Khan. We still don’t know, maybe he is guilty. Maybe, the life he has settled into at Riker’s is his only reality now ad yet the good fight is still fought in his name. Part VII:...

New Movies on HBO: Point Break

New Movies on HBO: Point Break

HBOWatch Editors were not able to line-up a writer to review POINT BREAK, but that doesn’t mean we don’t want to draw your attention to the PG-13 rated drama playing on HBO. The movie premiered on Saturday, 08.20 at 8:00pm and is still airing across the channels as well as on HBOGo/HBONow. Though POINT BREAK might be appearing on the network for the first time on the network it is actually a remake of an older movie. In 1991 the R- rated version launched under the direction of Kathryn Bigelow. It starred Keanu Reeves, Patrick Swayze and Gary Busey. The 2015 version is made with a different director and cast. More about them in a bit,...
