Movie Review: Kingsman: The Secret Service

Movie Review: Kingsman: The Secret Service

On the surface it looks like Kingsman: The Secret Service is a knockoff of James Bond. In a certain sense that’s true, because any British secret agent jetting all over the world to fight a megalomaniac with a plan to change to the world to his image bears a striking resemblance to the structure of a Bond movie. However, the movie doesn’t hold back on goofiness for the sake of grim reality, or humor to be taken seriously. It knows its theme and trusts its audience well enough to catch on without recycling ideas from other recent movies that did it better. If the mediocre Spectre tells us anything it’s that Kingsman does...

GETTING ON: “No, I Don’t Want A Fucking Smiley Face”

GETTING ON: “No, I Don’t Want A Fucking Smiley Face”

Last week we had developments in both DiDi and Dawn’s predicaments and in this episode they escalate while Dr. James gets back into the swing of her old shenanigans.  Also guest appearances kind of steal the show. Here is a look at – Episode # 15 – “No, I Don’t Want A Fucking Smiley Face” The character Jenna James hit the mark with what most of this episode is about. She told a patient – “We all at times tell stories about ourselves in order to save face.” We all want to be seen in our best light and if that means puffing ourselves up a little bit then so be it. Dr. James knows first-hand that that behavior happens...

THE LEFTOVERS: “International Assassin”

THE LEFTOVERS: “International Assassin”

  …     … I sat in silence after this episode ended …    …   …    … and I stared at a blank page for a long time before I assembled a thought or two to write about this eighth episode in the second season of THE LEFTOVERS. …     …    I’m still conflicted, so head over to the review of the previous episode if you need to then come back. I don’t know whether I like this episode or not. How about any of you? There is a lot of cool moments in this episode and subtle twists that add up to an interesting hour. We left the scene with Michael Murphy dragging a seemingly dead Kevin Garvey out of Virgil’s...

First Promotion For Game of Thrones Season Six Released

First Promotion For Game of Thrones Season Six Released

*Warning Spoilers Ahead!* Is Jon Snow really dead? HBO addressed the question which has been haunting fans of Game of Thrones since the Season Six finale head on with it’s first official Season Six promotional picture which was dropped earlier today. The picture showed everyone’s favorite Lord Commander of the Night’s Watch, Jon Snow, battered and bloody…but very much more alive than we saw him last when he was supposedly dying in the snow, betrayed and murdered by his own brothers.  See below for the picture. While many might consider this a spoiler, seeing as how HBO has plastered the image all over downtown New...

Jeffrey Wright Mentions WESTWORLD

Jeffrey Wright Mentions WESTWORLD

Right now we don’t have much on WESTWORLD. We wish we did, but you know how unpredictable HBO is at doling out information and imagery…only when they are ready. But, in surfing around to dig up something on the series we found this clip from The Queen Latifah Show with guest Jeffrey Wright from November of 2014.  He talks a bit about his character on the show. He plays, as we reported on 08.06.14, Bernard Lowe, director of the Programming Division of the amusement park. His “keen observation of human nature provides him with boundless inspiration for his life’s work—creating artificial people.” Take a look at the clip: Yeah, we...

Sarah Jessica Parker is Working on DIVORCE

Sarah Jessica Parker is Working on DIVORCE

As we well know Sarah Jessica Parker is returning to HBO for the first time after wrapping up SEX AND THE CITY in 2004. She does so with DIVORCE sometime late in 2016. HBOWatch first reported on the pilot episode in December of last year and stated the pilot was filming this March then confirmed it was going to series in April. Here is the first released picture of SJP’s character as the series went into production.  In fact, it has been reported that the show has been filming in the White Plains area of New York. It is not clear at this time of all the details surrounding the show including when it will air in 2016, but we suspect it...

The Knick: “There are Rules”

The Knick: “There are Rules”

  First, if you missed it here is last week’s review. Now, in this week’s episode of The Knick, we see how rules are meant to be bent, broken and stretched to capacity. Take for instance the ideology of having a black man perform a surgery at the Knickerbocker hospital, even if the suggestion comes from another prominent doctor on staff. Do you really think the Board of Directors is going to look the other way just this one time? Also, isn’t going by the book and adhering to rules something that Dr. Zinberg is constantly preaching to his staff? For her part, isn’t Sister Harriet always trying to do the right thing, only...

Movie Review: Fifty Shades of Grey

Movie Review: Fifty Shades of Grey

The biggest problem with  Fifty Shades of Grey is not in its content, characterization or storyline (although these are all problems in their own right to some degree) it’s in its promise and reputation that this is going to be a very kinky, erotic, passionate, sexually explicit drama and it completely fails to live up to that. It plays out like a middle aged woman’s fantasy that she has quickly jotted down on a Twilight fan fiction website without giving it a single creative thought apart from in the potentially extreme erotic desires of our protagonist, Christian Grey. Oh, wait. That is exactly what it is. I have not read the book or...

Nic Pizzolatto Still Onboard At HBO, But Not Necessarily TRUE DETECTIVE Season 3

Nic Pizzolatto Still Onboard At HBO, But Not Necessarily TRUE DETECTIVE Season 3

HBO has just continued a contract with TRUE DETECTIVE’s Nic Pizzolatto that will allow him to work on concepts through 2018. Whether that includes a third season of the anthology series is still unknown. If it does go forward however, don’t expect it in 2016. Keep in mind it would still have to be written from scratch before it ever went to camera and since HBO has not given approval yet they must be holding out for such a script.   However, it bears repeating that Michael Lombardo has already stated that a third run is up to its creator. Lombardo said – “If he wants to do another season, I said the door is open, we’d like to do...

THE LEFTOVERS: A Most Powerful Adversary

THE LEFTOVERS: A Most Powerful Adversary

  In what can be described as one of the most compelling, yet anxiety inducing episodes to date, “A Most Powerful Adversary” deals with mental health issues, family history, dark secrets, and sinister deeds. At the forefront of the episode are four key characters: Kevin, Patti, Virgil and surprisingly enough, Laurie. In case you missed it, here is our review of last weeks episode to catch you up. To say that Kevin is having a really bad day is an understatement; his girlfriend Nora took off in the middle of the night with their baby daughter, his daughter Jill has gone off on an emotional bender and takes her frustration...
