Boardwalk Empire: “Friendless Child”

Boardwalk Empire: “Friendless Child”

Nucky Thompson was brought to his knees in the latest episode of ‘Boardwalk Empire.’ War has returned to the Boardwalk, leaving 19 dead and over a million dollars in lost revenue. We haven’t seen this level of brutality since Gyp Rosetti’s onslaught in Season 3. Luciano and Lansky are on the move, and Nucky is desperately trying to keep up. With the final episode of the series less than a week away, and with many of our favorite characters dead and gone, it looks as if the Thompson family has finally been dethroned in Atlantic City. RECAP: Nucky and Salvatore Maranzano are deadlocked in a war-of-attrition with...

Movie Review: Lone Survivor

Movie Review: Lone Survivor

Lone Survivor is the latest film from Peter Berg, who is most famous for directing the disappointing Battleship and the mediocre Hancock. However, he appears to have found his groove with Lone Survivor and managed to create an intense and thrilling depiction of a failed Navy SEAL mission. With a star-studded cast consisting of Mark Wahlberg, Emile Hirsch, Taylor Kitsch Ben Foster and Eric Bana (among others) Lone Survivor has the tools required to be a hit. Okay, so the story goes a little like this: A team of four US Navy SEALs are sent to Afghanistan to carry out a reconnaissance mission to track and capture Taliban leader Ahmad Shah....

Boardwalk Empire: “The Devil You Know”

Boardwalk Empire: “The Devil You Know”

This episode showed the demise of two men and if you were rooting for either one of those sorry chaps then this was a tough episode to watch. I guess with only two episodes left, someone had to bite the bullet. Literally. Also if you don’t want to know any more than that then don’t read ahead! Van Alden and Eli are in a really bad state: cornered by D’Angelo (who is posing as a member of Capone’s gang) and desperate to get the goods on Capone, they venture to the hotel. Their plan is not well thought out and in trying to swindle the ledgers from Capone; they head straight into a trap. The good news is that Capone comes back...

HBO Sports: Fall Boxing Preview 2014

If you are an HBO fan you are at least tangentially aware that HBO broadcasts boxing matches.  What you may not be aware of is that HBO is the pinnacle of the sport, showcasing virtually all of the top fighters and fights and has been doing so for more than 30 years.  The fight game can be extremely simple, a contest of wills between two individuals to see who can hit the other more with their fists.  At the same time the sport can be densely rich with personalities, back stories and politics that rival Game of Thrones.  Welcome the the fall HBO boxing preview! October 18th –  Triple G vs Rubio and Donaire vs Walters If you...

HBO Documentary Films: THERE’S SOMETHING WRONG WITH AUNT DIANE

Overview: On Sunday, July 26, 2009, Diane Schuler left the campgrounds in upstate New York where she was vacationing with her family and set off towards home on Long Island, a drive she had made numerous times before.  With her were five young children:  her son, her daughter and three nieces.  Four hours later, she drove the wrong way on the Taconic State Parkway for nearly two miles eventually crashing into an oncoming SUV, killing herself and seven others.  One of the worst motor-vehicle accidents in New York State history, the tragedy quickly became national news and her actions on that day, and in the past, were thrust under a...

Flashback Scenes Confirmed for the First Time in Game of Thrones Season 5

“[For Game of Thrones] we set a rule: No prophecies, dreams or flashbacks. We failed the first two and this season the third. So yes, this season will finally have flashbacks.” That was David Benioff and Dan Weiss revealing that, despite the long-standing rule on the set of the world’s most popular fantasy program, Game of Thrones will now feature flashback scenes starting in season 5. Why is this a big deal? Book readers know that prophecies, dreams and flashbacks play a huge role in fleshing out the world of Westeros.  Much of the lore and information we have on our favorite characters came from flashback chapters within...

BORED TO DEATH Movie On the Big Screen?

BORED TO DEATH Movie On the Big Screen?

The witty comedy BORED TO DEATH, which ran on HBO for three seasons from 2009 – 2011, was planning to return as a TV-movie or a theatrical movie at some point. Now it appears that it just might be making its way closer to those cinema screens. HBOWatch had reported back on 01.23.13 of the potential of this happening by citing a Ted Danson quote. Danson played George Christopher, a pot-headed father figure to Jason Schwartzman’s Jonathan Ames. The series, if you need a reminder, was by creator Jonathan Ames who wrote about a character named after himself who is a struggling crime novelist and private detective on the side. His escapades,...

Pictures From Dorne: On the Set of Game of Thrones Season 5

Pictures From Dorne: On the Set of Game of Thrones Season 5

There are many, many shooting locations for HBO’s epic fantasy series Game of Thrones.  Each season the producers of the show have to find new , real-world places to represent those in Westeros. Just this year we found out that Spain had been cast to play the role of the hot, dry Oasis of Dorne in Season 5. Many have been wondering about what the location would look like– the costumes, the sets etc. Well the Spanish publication CANAL has some pictures to help curb your enthusiasm until this spring.  Take a look at some images hot off the presses: Aero Hotah makes his case: Ellaria Sand checking in: Jaime Lannister in Dornish...

Finally: HBO Will Be Available “Stand-Alone” Without a Cable Subscription in 2015

Finally: HBO Will Be Available “Stand-Alone” Without a Cable Subscription in 2015

Everyone hates the cable company. From the random fees for unknown services to the rate hikes that seem to happen every year– the cost of an HBO subscription has been much more than the $10-$20 price tag.  For those, known as “cord-cutters” HBO has been literally impossible to obtain legally without a cable package of some kind forcing many to turn to piracy. Today the future of television took one step forward as the rumblings of the past few months turned out to be true: HBO will be available as a stand-alone, Netflix-like service in 2015! HBO has been the profitable crown jewel in the portfolio of the mega-media...

Steve McQueen’s HBO Pilot Has a Title and a Lead!

Steve McQueen’s HBO Pilot Has a Title and a Lead!

A drama pilot is in the works entitled CODES OF CONDUCT from producer/director Steve McQueen and a lead male has recently been attached by the name of Devon Terrell. We first gave you a heads up on McQueen’s development deal almost a year ago. You know the drill, if HBO likes the pilot and can be convinced that a season of shows can be generated at the right cost (each seems less of a big deal when a season can be as few as six episodes any more) than a show is born. The show certainly has a good developer in Steve McQueen (pictured). Yeah he started with a long list of shorts, but after that was Shame followed by (boom!) the Academy...

The Knick: “The Golden Lotus”

The Knick: “The Golden Lotus”

Misery loves company. In every corner of this episode, people’s lives were unraveling; despair was potent and uncertainty palpable. Words escape me; I say this in the best possible way to describe it, because this episode did not disappoint. Every action has its share of consequences and the staff at the Knick are finding out just how badly things have become. Thackeray, at his lowest level of debauchery, is arrested for stealing cocaine from a pharmacy. If it wasn’t for his very wealthy benefactor, August Robertson, he would’ve been sitting in a dank jail cell somewhere, rotting away. Not only does Augustus pay off the police...
