GIRLS Season Six Promo Drops: “Group Meeting”

GIRLS Season Six Promo Drops: “Group Meeting”

Okay GIRLS fans, some more cool stuff has been released and with only weeks until the final season premiere, these chicks are doing all they can to keep us chomping at the bit. In the official season 6 promo, we see all four girls gathered in a bathroom which, let’s face it, is the ultimate place for women to gather and discuss important matters. It looks to me like the season is going to much less focused on love and more focused on the relationships of the girls with each other. The word ‘girls’ in its very nature suggest an immaturity and a naivety but as these girls grow up into women, they have knowingly grown further...

Goodbye 2016, Hello HBO in 2017

Goodbye 2016, Hello HBO in 2017

Apparently so. SO at this time we will post them and take a look at what was the highlights of 2016 and what waits for us in 2017. Enjoy! First is the piece entitled “2016...

Movies on HBO: Criminal

Movies on HBO: Criminal

  HBOWatch Editors were not able to line-up a writer to review CRIMINAL, but that doesn’t mean we don’t want to draw your attention to the action-packed R-rated playing on HBO. It is no wonder we didn’t get anyone as it debuts on New Year’s Eve. Specifically, that is Saturday, 12.31 at 8:00pm. It will then appear across the channels as well as on HBONow/Go. Below is HBO’s quick promo: Now a bit of explanation may be in order. First of all, the title CRIMINAL doesn’t really fit this movie. Very simply a criminal, meaning an expendable person if all goes wrong, has the intel and memories of a deceased special agent...

HBO Documentary Films: EVERY BRILLIANT THING

HBO Documentary Films: EVERY BRILLIANT THING

Overview: EVERY BRILLIANT THING strikes a delicate balance between sobering loss and cathartic laughter. Adapting the hit off-Broadway one-character show of the same name written by Duncan Macmillan and starring British comedian Jonny Donahoe, the film recounts a life lived in the shadow of suicide. Emmy winners Fenton Bailey and Randy Barbato (HBO’s MAPPLETHORPE: LOOK AT THE PICTURES and WISHFUL DRINKING) produce and direct the heart-wrenching yet humorous presentation about depression and the lengths we will go to for those we love. Filmed in 2015 at New York City’s Barrow Theatre, this documentary opens as Donahoe greets the arriving...

Westworld: Scenes of the Season

Westworld: Scenes of the Season

The first season of Westworld went off with quite a bang and continued the season with twists and turns and everything in between. I watched and rode the roller coaster of emotions along with everyone. But by the end of the season, plenty of moments stood out as monumental. Here are my top five scenes of the season.   Ford Cleans Up When Bernard starts asking questions, we as the audience had to wonder how Ford was going to react. Bernard wants to know everything, access all his past “memories” to discover who he really is. Bernard gets the information after attempting to manipulate Ford. He refuses to give up in knowing...

Westworld and Game of Thrones: Violent Delights

Westworld and Game of Thrones: Violent Delights

Warning: Major Westworld S1 Spoilers and Game of Thrones S6 Spoilers  In Westworld, which had its first season earlier this autumn, HBO gave its own hit show, Game of Thrones a run for its money. While there weren’t any dragons or otherworldly ice monsters to be found in Westworld’s endless desert expanses, there were still many of the same qualities in the show that have endeared fans to Game of Thrones for years– complex plot-lines, multi-faceted characters, and epic world-building. At the same time, there were also the graphic displays of carnage, copulation, and cruelty: not surprising given that this has become a...

Three Undeniable Nods to “Game of Thrones” in the Season Finale of “Westworld”

Three Undeniable Nods to “Game of Thrones” in the Season Finale of “Westworld”

With the sound of spurs and gunshots echoing in our memories, the time for reflection is now upon us. Westworld was one of the biggest first series in HBO history, with a bountiful audience who actively dedicated their time to finding meaning in the jumbled and confusing timelines. Since the show finished there have been a plethora of theories circling about what could be in store in the following seasons. In the feature-length original film of the same name for which the series was obviously based on, there are multiple worlds including a Medieval World. In an interview with Jonathon Nolan, he said that George RR Martin had floated the idea...

Movie Review: Hail, Caesar!

Movie Review: Hail, Caesar!

With so many “best of the year” lists being released it’s easy to forget that the Coen Brothers had a film this year. Had Hail, Caesar! been released in the fall it would undoubtedly be more omnipresent on the aforementioned lists. Even so Hail, Caesar! is not No Country For Old Men, or any of the other beloved Coen classics, it’s lesser Coen but that’s still better than 90% of the films released in a given year. Hail, Caesar! is a simple film, with a lot of moving parts. The main gist of the film revolves around a studio head Eddie Mannix (Josh Brolin), attempting to get his biggest picture “Hail Caesar!”...

Development Slate: GLARE, Adam McKay, Cinemax & More

We have accumulated a bit of a backlog of news lately that we will consolidate into this Slate report. As these concepts develop we will give them their own category, but for now, we just want to get the facts out to our fellow HBO followers.   Bad Robot Productions Eyes GLARE The highly sought after Spanish writer Javier Gullón (pictured) has been commissioned by J. J. Abrams and Bad Robot Productions to pen an original work for HBO. It is called GLARE and is labeled a sci-fi odyssey exploring the colonization of another planet.
