The Leftovers: “Don’t Be Ridiculous”

Apr 25, 2017

To say that this episode of The Leftovers was bizarre, as if something out of a feverish dream, is an understatement. In a very Nora-centric episode, we see her dealing with feelings of...

Movies On HBO: WAR DOGS

HBOWatch Editors were not able to line-up a writer to review WAR DOGS, the story of two unexpected arms dealers, and are surprised because we were sure we’d have someone. Nevertheless, we draw your attention to this film as it debuts on HBO on SATURDAY, APRIL 08 at 8:00pm. Here is how Warner Bros. describes their movie – Two friends in their early 20s (Jonah Hill and Miles Teller) living in Miami Beach during the Iraq War exploit a little-known government initiative that allows small businesses to bid on U.S. Military contracts. Starting small, they begin raking in big money and are living the high life. But the pair gets in over their...

HBO Documentary Films: ABORTION: STORIES WOMEN TELL

HBO Documentary Films: ABORTION: STORIES WOMEN TELL

Overview: Although 44 years have passed since the U.S. Supreme Court decision in Roe v. Wade recognized a woman’s right to choose, abortion remains one of the most polarizing issues in America. Since 2011, more than half of the states have imposed significant restrictions on abortion, including in Missouri, where only one abortion clinic remains open in the entire state, and patients and their doctors must navigate a 72-hour waiting period. ABORTION: STORIES WOMEN TELL offers an intimate window into the lives of women living in Missouri. Tracy Droz Tragos (winner of the Sundance Film Festival Grand Jury Prize for U.S. Documentary for Rich...

Dolores’ Dad, Louis Herthum Becomes Regular on WESTWORLD S2

Dolores’ Dad, Louis Herthum Becomes Regular on WESTWORLD S2

Keep doling out the WESTWORLD tidbits, we’ll take them; here’s another one. After Talulah Riley’s upgrade comes veteran character actor Louis Herthum’s turn. You recognize him as Peter Abernathy, Dolores’ father. If you recall his scenario showed him resting on the porch as Dolores looked out across the range and contemplated on what scenario she’d play out that day. Peter’s goal seemed to be more oriented towards seeing her return at the end of each day and keeping her safe because she is a Host that seems to interact with Guests quite often. He is good in his role until, you know, he glitches. Hey, that’s right. He is one...

BIG LITTLE LIES Does Well For HBO

BIG LITTLE LIES Does Well For HBO

The more the limited series like BIG LITTLE LIES, THE YOUNG POPE and THE NIGHT OF do for HBO the more likely these types of programs are to make it on the screen. The latest, starring Nicole Kidman, Reese Witherspoon, Shailene Woodley, Alexander Skarsgård and Laura Dern, had healthy numbers. The last episode of 04.02 entitled “You Get What You Need” drew 1.9 million viewers for the 9:00pm showing. That is good considering not everyone subscribes to the pay channel. That number is up from the 1.4 million viewers from the previous episode. Overall, the finale due to multiple airings tallied 2.5 million. Viewership was said to grow as the...

Girls: “What Will We Do This Time About Adam?”

Girls: “What Will We Do This Time About Adam?”

Things are going a hundred miles an hour for Hannah at the moment and as her body undergoes significant changes, so does everything else in her life. This week’s episode focuses largely on a reconciliation between Hannah and Adam, something that felt like it would happen after the episode ‘Full Disclosure’ where we watched scenes from Adam’s movie documenting his and Hannah’s more intimate and private moments. I have a few concerns regarding this reconciliation and the circumstances under which it happened, while I would like to think it is the real deal, there is an annoying itch in the back of my mind which makes me think...

Big Little Lies Finale: “You Get What You Need”

Big Little Lies Finale: “You Get What You Need”

Big Little Lies is a good example what sets HBO apart from other broadcasters. While it may not go down as a title that people will think of first when they hear the word “HBO” like Game of Thrones or The Sopranos, it doesn’t fail to deliver as a cinematic work made for the small screen. It is a risk to tell a story that opens so many questions right out of the gate and answer very few of them. It puts a lot of pressure on the final episode to tie up every loose end and present it as a gift to the viewer that watched every moment up until this point. While this series felt like a journey that lives up to the saying “It’s not about...

HBO Documentary Films: ROCK AND A HARD PLACE

HBO Documentary Films: ROCK AND A HARD PLACE

Overview: Incarcerated young people enter the famed Miami-Dade County Corrections & Rehabilitation Boot Camp Program in search of a second chance: the opportunity to trade an extensive prison sentence for a fresh start. In this harsh, 16-week camp, drill instructors push inmates to their limit, but those who complete it can become constructive members of society who are substantially less likely to return to prison. The program reports a recidivism rate under 15%, while the national rate of prison recidivism is approximately 70%. Inspired by Dwayne Johnson’s own experiences with the law as a youth, Rock and a Hard Place is a passion...

Movie Review: Absolutely Fabulous: The Movie

Movie Review: Absolutely Fabulous: The Movie

Absolutely Fabulous: The Movie was released in 2016 and is a continuation of a popular British TV series which dominated the airwaves in the 1990’s and early 2000’s.

Indulging in alcohol, cigarettes and recreational drugs, the flamboyant pair find themselves in a constant slew of trouble, often as a result of their childish and immature behavior. Saffron, Eddy’s daughter, is always the butt of their...

Birth Rights and Deadly Wights: New Game of Thrones S7 Trailer Drops

Birth Rights and Deadly Wights: New Game of Thrones S7 Trailer Drops

Yesterday, HBO brightened everyone’s Thursday a little when they released the first trailer for Game of Thrones Season 7. In a departure from the frantic, information-packed trailers of past years, this one focuses only on a few characters and sets a dark, brooding tone for the upcoming season, which will premiere later this year on July 16th. HBO has been largely reticent about what the upcoming season will hold, and it continues this trend in the new trailer, which tells us little, instead, reaffirming the stakes, and reminding us of successes some main characters have enjoyed. The scene is set, the rulers are seated, but above it...

CURB YOUR ENTHUSIASM Wraps Up Filming on Season 9

CURB YOUR ENTHUSIASM Wraps Up Filming on Season 9

It seems just like a few days ago that HBO announced that the long awaited Season Nine of Larry David’s CURB YOUR ENTHUSIASM was going to happen. It seems like just yesterday that JB Smoove walked up on David’s dressing room trailer on the first day of filming. Now we have word that production has wrapped up on that ninth season. That means it is a good chance that we see the series return in late 2017. You know, they have to promote it with key art and promos and get those billboards printed and such. Maybe, some teaser clip will drop with THE LEFTOVERS or definitely by GAME OF THRONES in July. We will impatiently wait for it. The...

Rumors of Pizzolatto & Milch Working On TRUE DETECTIVE Season 3

Rumors of Pizzolatto & Milch Working On TRUE DETECTIVE Season 3

Any possibility of a continuation of the TRUE DETECTIVE series by Nic Pizzolatto has been a slow and agonizing process, but word has come out that he is getting a valuable assist. David Milch, creator/writer of such works as the classic NYPD Blue and HBO’s DEADWOOD, JOHN FROM CINCINNATI and the short-lived LUCK, is said to be picking up the pen to help flesh out a Season Three of the anthology show. This news has been buzzing about, but there is not much to say on the matter. It has not been defined exactly what Mr. Milch would be doing with the project. It has already been confirmed that Pizzolatto has a concept and has written the first...

Girls: “Bounce”

Girls: “Bounce”

Last week, Hannah shared her news with Marnie, whose life seems to finally be imploding around her. But while Hannah is determined not to tell the father of her baby, everyone else has some strong opinions about that very idea.  Meanwhile, Elijah’s love for acting is rekindled and how that fire burns! Since Girls is coming to a close, it was finally time for an Elijah-centric episode. We got to celebrate him in all his sarcastic and wondrously adorable glory. But we also get to see some other characters have some revelations. After the opinions last week about Hannah telling the father Paul-Louis about the baby, she finally decides...
