Movie Review: Straight Outta Compton

Movie Review: Straight Outta Compton

Straight Outta Compton follows the same path as most other movies about famous musicians, coming from nothing to creating something that permanently changes our culture. What makes it different, and in this case, so much more exciting is that we see the growing pains of those changes, witnessing just how much music can affect the day to day lives of those who couldn’t find an outlet for pent-up frustration at a system that didn’t (and one could say still doesn’t) care about them. Usually we can see how the music is a reflection of the artist’s inner turmoil, reflecting on themselves and how the sacrifices they made in pursuing their...

Game of Thrones: Scene of the Season (Season 6)

Game of Thrones: Scene of the Season (Season 6)

Winter is finally here. And for all of us Game of Thrones fans, the long wait begins. Until next spring, we’ll all have to content ourselves with various tidbits of information about the HBO show where ever possible. The awesome folks at HBOWatch have decided to pick their personal favorite scenes of season six and will share them with you. Beware, this post is full of spoilers! The Tower of Joy by Eleonora Iafano My personal favorite was the Tower of Joy flashback and segues into the King in the North scene. This was one of the most highly anticipated scenes of season six, and for good reason. For those that have read the books, you know...

CTV to air Game of Thrones Entire First Season!

CTV to air Game of Thrones Entire First Season!

  What would the Old and the New Gods think of this new development?! Up here, or ‘North of the Wall’ as I like to jokingly put it, Canada’s own CTV network will start airing the entire first season of Game of Thrones starting in August. Well, for those that have already seen the entire six season, this really isn’t news for you. However, for the folks up in Canada who don’t have access to HBO Go or don’ subscribe to HBO, this is HUGE! In fact, it’s extremely exciting.    Remember, not everyone is tech savvy or can afford tablets to stream HBO Go or can subscribe to HBO if you order cable. This is fantastic because...

THE NIGHT OF Series Premiere – Review

THE NIGHT OF Series Premiere – Review

We already know, due to the fact that this debut episode became available early, that critics have raved THE NIGHT OF’s launch. For example, Rotten Tomatoes gives it a 96% and Variety states it “is compulsively watchable and extraordinarily rewarding, a brilliant and addictive mystery that inspires the viewer to go back and watch the same scenes again, looking for subtler character beats and hidden clues.”  Quite a few watched it to favorable results, as far as HBO is concerned. With its early debut online the premiere episode saw 1.5 million viewers and its channel debut on 07.10 tallied another 1.3 million across three back-to-back...

One Speculation On Game of Thrones Season Seven

One Speculation On Game of Thrones Season Seven

Season Six is over…and MAN!!!!! There were so many twists and turns, revelations and betrayals that it was like riding a very long rollercoaster. We shouted for joy when our heroes finally came out on top and cursed the very day that our enemies were able to escape proper justice. So, the question begs, what will happen in Season Seven? With a principal cast of main characters and many supporting ones, who will rise and who will fall? The four main characters that I would like to make predictions for are Arya, Tyrion, Jon and Lady Olenna. Arya Stark  Arya Stark has cut a couple of names of her list: Meryn Trant and most recently,...

Matthew McConaughey to Make True Detective Return?

Matthew McConaughey to Make True Detective Return?

  Matthew McConaughey could make a sensational return to Golden Globe and Emmy nominated show True Detective. McConaughey previously played fan favorite philosophical detective Rustin Cohle alongside Woody Harrelson in the first season of the hit HBO series. Speaking on The Rich Eisen Show, when asked whether he would be open to reprising his role as Rust Cohle, McConaughey conceded; “Yeah, I would. I miss Rust Cohle man. I miss watching him on Sunday nights”. His characterization is arguably one of the main reasons for True Detective‘s initial success and popularity. From his philosophical musings, sharped-tongued...

Movie Review: Black Mass

Movie Review: Black Mass

With a star studded cast (Johnny Depp, Benedict Cumberbatch, Joel Edgerton, Kevin Bacon, Peter Sarsgaard), Black Mass is not a movie for the faint of heart. The first ten minutes of the movie depict scenes of gruesome murder and mob hits. Shown in a fractured narrative perspective from two of Whitey Bulger’s former accomplices, Black Mass tells the tale of James Whitey Bulger, a ruthless Irish American gangster. He’s the leader of the Winter Hill Gang. As with any mafia related story, the Winter Hill gang has an enemy in the form of the Angulio Brothers, another rival group who try to muscle in on the Winter Hill Gang’s turf. South...

HBO Development Slate: FAHRENHEIT 451, PREP, Fusion & More

Here are a few concepts that honestly got past us over the past few months. It happens. Will any of these shows get past this stage? We will have to wait and see, but you know, HBO does not have a great success rate at making a concept happen. That is why we don’t hesitate to clump this news together in one report. We start with a Ray Bradbury classic.     HBO is Adapting FAHRENHEIT 451 Film  It could be quite interesting if one of Sci-Fi’s greatest authors, Ray Bradbury, had one of his most acclaimed and controversial works adapted for HBO. Such plans are in the early stages for FAHRENHEIT 451 to so just that. Looking at...

Wait for Winter Delays ‘Game of Thrones’ Season 7

The white ravens of the Citadel have flown and Winter has finally arrived in Westeros, but the next season of Game of Thrones may be late in arriving this year due to the weather here on Earth. Game of Thrones wrapped up it’s sixth season a few weeks ago with a heart-stopping finale that left fans eager for more. However, show-runners D.B. Weiss and David Benioff recently delivered some crushing news in a recent interview on the UFC Unfiltered Podcast. When discussing the upcoming season, Weiss revealed that Season 7 may arrive later than usual next year: We don’t have an air date yet but this year it’ll probably be a little...

HBO Documentary Films: HOW TO LET GO OF THE WORLD AND LOVE ALL THE THINGS CLIMATE CAN’T CHANGE

HBO Documentary Films: HOW TO LET GO OF THE WORLD AND LOVE ALL THE THINGS CLIMATE CAN’T CHANGE

Overview: Having exposed the risks posed by natural gas drilling, known as fracking, in the documentaries “Gasland” and “Gasland Part II,” Josh Fox was struck by a sobering thought: “We could beat the fossil-fuel industry, but we still might lose everything we love to climate change.” Now, in this documentary he surveys the damage from possibly the greatest threat the world has ever faced, but also finds reasons for hope. It is all about showing how people around the world are taking action to protect their communities. With his trademark humor, banjo in hand and signature investigative style, Fox travels to 12 countries on six...

Movie Review: Suffragette

Movie Review: Suffragette

“You’re nothing in the world.” Admittedly, watching the Focus Features movie Suffragette brought up a lot of emotions. Surfacing was gratitude that women in this country have the ability to vote; anger over the treatment of women in the past which continues to plague women to this day and also sadness at the thought that in other places around the world, women are still not considered equals to men. Suffragette is the amazing and true story of women fighting in England to get the vote. Featuring Carey Mulligan, Helena Bonham-Carter, and Meryl Streep, as viewers we experience the brutality and escalation of tactics women...
