Mothers of the Throne

May 5, 2016

With Mother’s Day around the corner, what better way to celebrate mothers than thinking about the women giving life and protecting those vying for the Iron Throne. While my preferences...

Movie Review: Taken 3

Movie Review: Taken 3

Note: Spoilers ahead. When the first Taken film arrived on the scene, it presented a curious and interesting premise: what if an action movie could be led by an Academy Award-nominated actor with the gravitas of Liam Neeson? Taken presented us with a more weathered type of hero, one with close familial ties, and a soft spot for his beloved daughter, whom he couldn’t quite understand. Was the premise perfect? No, far from it. For starters, it infantilized said daughter, who was the focal point of Bryan’s search. It also presented some improbable circumstances surrounding the rescue. Nevertheless, Taken got by on charm, and on the...

The WESTWORLD Sex Scandal

The WESTWORLD Sex Scandal

We were almost going to let this news item slip by until we realized that old news about WESTWORLD is better than no news at all. So, we revisit the reports from a week ago to give you the following information about the highly anticipated futuristic series coming in 2016. If you don’t know what I am referring to than catch up here. It seems a casting report went out for background actors for the Michael Crichton adaptation that created quite a stir. A circulated Consent Agreement went out that stated the following: “This document serves to inform you that this project will require you to be fully nude and/or witness others fully nude...

Dunham’s Feminism Comedy MAX Gets A Pilot

Dunham’s Feminism Comedy MAX Gets A Pilot

This writer does not keep close tabs on anything Lena Dunham does, but I thought she was working on, in addition to GIRLS, a concept called ALL DRESSED UP AND EVERYWHERE TO GO. Now, it seems another comedy idea as surfaced and it recently got a pilot order. I honestly never perceived Dunham as a feminist but evidently that is a message she wants to make clear with a work titled MAX. MAX is a single-camera comedy described as a raucous comedy set in 1963 about the struggles of second wave feminism, centered on an ambitious magazine writer named Maxine Woodruff looking for liberation. Maxine is an enthusiastic, if misguided, low-level...

Bernie Sanders to Appear on Real Time with Bill Maher this Week

This news may break Reddit. Senator Bernie Sanders will appear with Bill Maher on HBO’s air this Friday. Maher is known for his liberal views but has yet to endorse a candidate for the democratic nomination officially. Previously, Bill gave one million dollars to the Obama campaign.  Sanders has been on the show before. Here’s a clip if you missed that interview and just can’t wait. Here’s the rundown for Friday night’s program: REAL TIME WITH BILL MAHER continues its 13th season FRIDAY, OCT. 16 (10:00-11:00 p.m. live ET/tape-delayed PT), with a replay at 11:00 p.m., exclusively on HBO.

One Fan’s Hope for Season Two of Cinemax’s THE KNICK

One Fan’s Hope for Season Two of Cinemax’s THE KNICK

What goes up must come down. You could say this old adage applies to Dr. John Thackery, our beleaguered hero, from Season One. This man was polished, possessed a cunning wit and sharp intelligence; he had an eye for the latest medical technology and knew how to rub shoulders with New York’s elite. A handsome doctor with some serious swag, John knew just how far he could push his patients and his medical procedures. He had a dark past; one that included a former girlfriend (in which he had to operate on her nose by doing a risky skin graft to repair her face) and he also recognized his medical equal in others, most notably (and perhaps a...

GETTING ON’s Final Season Debuts 11.08.15 (Updated with Trailer)

Update: No sooner do we get you updated about the upcoming season and the trailer drops. So here it is. It looks like another great season. Shame it is the last one.

Those who invest in hard copies of Season Five this spring will gain not only the chance to re-visit...

THE LEFTOVERS Season Two Premiere: “Axis Mundi”

THE LEFTOVERS Season Two Premiere: “Axis Mundi”

Oh, where to begin. Well, we could go the whole way back to the beginning and the cavewoman, but we’ll save that for later. Let’s more or less preface this review with a few thoughts before jumping into the mystery. Season One teased us with trying to figure out the “why” of the Sudden Departure and realized that we were not going to get it. Many had a problem with that, but I was not one of them. I could accept it and thus loved the season beginning to end. Season Two won’t delve into it either for it is hoped that we are all past it by now. We will seem to delve, however, into a bit of the “how” I think. But being by...

Vinyl Series Premiere Date Revealed in First Full Trailer

Vinyl Series Premiere Date Revealed in First Full Trailer

Vinyl has been on our minds for over a year now. We’d called it the “Martin Scorsese Music Project” for quite some time until HBO finally revealed the name of the project and “Vinyl” seems to be extremely appropriate for this show. If you take the talents of Martin Scorsese, and spice it up with the brilliance of Winter and authenticity of Mick Jagger you have this show.   We’d been waiting for an official premiere date for Vinyl and we can now reveal that the show will air in January of 2016. This is a huge relief to HBO subscribers since the network has been without a proper drama series since True...

HBO Documentary Films: SAN FRANCISCO 2.0

HBO Documentary Films: SAN FRANCISCO 2.0

Overview: San Francisco has long enjoyed a reputation as the counterculture capital of America, attracting bohemians, mavericks, progressives and activists. With the onset of the digital gold rush, young members of the tech elite are flocking to the West Coast to make their fortunes, and this new wealth is forcing San Francisco to reinvent itself. But as tech innovations lead America into the golden age of digital supremacy, is it changing the heart and soul of their adopted city? In SAN FRANCISCO 2.0, Alexandra Pelosi (whose documentaries frequent HBO) returns to her hometown to document what the tech boom has in store for this...

No, A “Game of Thrones” Movie Is Not in the Works

No, A “Game of Thrones” Movie Is Not in the Works

As the long months stretch on between seasons of Game of Thrones, shady internet websites that earn their dubious keep off of their ad revenue from click-bait articles have struck again and manufactured a completely false news story. An experienced fan of George R.R. Martin’s book series, or HBO’s show has probably had a few experiences with internet rumors in the past years. George R.R. Martin Strongly Hints Next Book Will Be Published This Year! Game of Thrones to be Released Early! Season Six to Have Cameo By President Obama! With every slow news day comes a new outlandish claim, a rabid distribution of the story across...

As part of the...

Movie Review: American Sniper

Movie Review: American Sniper

Before the release of American Sniper, I did not know who Chris Kyle was. I am not an American so this isn’t exactly surprising, I should imagine his story was headline news over here for a day or two. Not only is his story interesting, it’s also important and those two significant factors coupled together with Bradley Cooper and Clint Eastwood spells success. There were things that bothered me about the film, plastic babies aside, but I think overall the story being told is delivered exceptionally and the subject matter is handled tastefully. When the title credits rolled, I furiously Googled “Chris Kyle” and it’s safe to say, I...
