Insecure: “Hella Questions”

Insecure: “Hella Questions”

It turns out that make-up sex has levels to it and depending upon how you see it, this determines how you move on. Episode Two of Season Two deals with the aftermath of the hookup between Issa and Lawrence. Molly forces Issa to explore what the sex meant—was it a “we back together fuck” or a “fuck you fuck?” I’d argue the latter, but who am I to shatter Issa’s dream? Well, we leave that to her core group of friends who, after she breaks the news that she and Lawrence are “talking again” quickly reference how they’re glad he’s done with “the other girl!” There you have folks, Issa now knows about Tasha. And...

Movies on HBO: “Collateral Beauty”

Movies on HBO: “Collateral Beauty”

HBOWatch Editors were not able to line-up a writer to review COLLATERAL BEAUTY. I think you can understand when I tell you why – they were all obsessed over GAME OF THRONES, what else? That doesn’t mean we don’t want to draw your attention to this PG-13 drama. Will Smith, Edward Norton and Keira Knightley head an all-star ensemble cast in this touching piece. Also seen on screen are Michael Pena, Noamie Harris, Jacob Latimore, with Kate Winslet and Helen Mirren. Here is how Warner Bros. describes this movie from 2016: When a successful New York advertising executive suffers a great tragedy, he retreats from life. While his concerned...

Game of Thrones: “The Queen’s Justice”

Game of Thrones: “The Queen’s Justice”

This weeks episode of Game of Thrones saw some almighty twists and turns in the story of who will claim the Iron Throne, the most shocking of which did not involve Jon and Daenerys, despite the fact that this week saw them meet each other for the very first time. Ice and Fire finally came together, but it was the Lannisters and the Tyrells that stole the show. Ice and Fire Finally, after six seasons, Jon Snow and Daenerys Targaryen have met each other to discuss their very different views on the future of the Seven Kingdoms. Despite waiting for this to happen for so long, their meeting fell fairly flat and just involved a lot of back and...

Movies On HBO: “Almost Christmas”

Movies On HBO: “Almost Christmas”

HBOWatch Editors were not able to line-up a writer to review ALMOST CHRISTMAS. We guess no one is ready for anything to do with the Holidays or is just not into that Christmas in July thing. That doesn’t mean we don’t want to draw your attention to this PG-13 comedy, all 1 hour and 51 minutes worth. It breaks down like this: The film opens in the 1970’s with a montage of Walter and Grace Meyers throughout their relationship. They fell in love and got married, raising four children together. In present day 2016, Grace passes away, leaving Walter all by himself now that his adult children have left the house. It’s now ten...

Theon Greyjoy: No Coward, No Fool

Theon Greyjoy: No Coward, No Fool

“He who fights and runs away will  live to fight another day,”- Demosthenes      In less than twenty-four hours since the release of “Stormborn,” the second episode in Season Seven of Game of Thrones, the internet has declared Theon Greyjoy a “lost cause,” “a coward,” and, because we’re all school children at heart, a “huge loser.” The cascade of hate is rather amusing, because these aren’t exactly new sentiments– but the hate for Theon certainly exploded overnight, after the Greyjoy prince’s flamboyantly evil uncle, Euron, took his niece captive, as Theon bailed, leaping off a ship rather...

Game of Thrones: “Stormborn”

Game of Thrones: “Stormborn”

This episode starts with a storm, much like the night that Daenerys was born, as Varys and Tyrion point out. Hence, why she’s known as Daenerys Stormborn. Now that Daenerys has finally reached Westeros, there is much to do if she is to take over the Iron Throne. Being in a land where her family was killed off  and where she and her brother got driven out of is enough to make anyone suspicious of those closest to them, especially if they spent much of their time there. Daenerys confronts Varys about where his loyalties truly lie. Her suspicions are valid because we’ve seen him tactically switch sides throughout the series. He sticks...

VICE Special Report: A WORLD IN DISARRAY – Review

VICE Special Report: A WORLD IN DISARRAY – Review

Overview: In the decades following World War II, the United States led the way in shaping the world order. But with the end of the Cold War, old alliances have fractured and new rivalries have arisen, resulting in a world increasingly in disarray, where weak states threaten global stability just as much as strong ones do. VICE founder Suroosh Alvi and other VICE correspondents examine the foreign policies that have shaped the modern world and meet people living through today’s major conflicts. “In this increasingly confusing modern political landscape, we thought it would be interesting to canvas the best minds in foreign policy in an...

Ballers Season Three Premiere: “Seeds of Expansion”

Ballers Season Three Premiere: “Seeds of Expansion”

You see the thing about success is we all want it and Spencer Strasmore (played the Dwayne Johnson) and Joe  (played by Rob Corddry) will stop at nothing to make it happen. The season premiere jumps right in a and it’s business as usual. Spencer and Joe are still sports agents looking for the next IT kid! Oh and now they’re indebted to Ricky Jerret (played by John David Washington) a whole $5 million via that business loan that earned them a spot back in the good graces of ASM (Anderson Sports Management)! I’m not sure if getting a loan from your client is a smart business move but I’m sure things will unfold through the season....

HBOWatch Movie Review: “Hacksaw Ridge”

HBOWatch Movie Review: “Hacksaw Ridge”

In a nutshell: HELL on earth. Imagine death is all around you: bodies blowing up, screaming all around, smoke, gas, darkness and decay. No matter how much gear you have on, no matter how much training you received in your army barracks, absolutely nothing prepares you for the sheer madness of warfare. Desmond Doss is a CO – a conscientious objector. He signed up for the army, but to help people as a medic. Ironic, because in the minds of his superior officers, warfare means protecting your rights and your freedoms at any cost, even if it means taking up arms and killing the enemy. Due to Desmond’s upbringing – a father (and former...
