Divorce: “Weekend Plans”

Divorce: “Weekend Plans”

Last week on Divorce, Frances (Sarah Jessica Parker) and Robert (Thomas Haden Church) took the kids and made the trek to Frances’ parents’ house for Christmas. While Frances took her sweet time breaking the D-word news, Robert was quick to step in and take the blame for her. It was a brief moment of nicety in the ever moving storm of divorce proceedings. This week, Frances and Robert meet with their lawyers. Max Brodkin (Jeffrey DeMunn) and Tony Silvercreek (Dean Winters) are absolutely fantastic. Brodkin represents Frances and Silvercreek for Robert. While Brodkin seems to be out of wits and off his game following a...

Westworld: “Trace Decay”

Westworld: “Trace Decay”

After last week’s bombshell, this week’s episode opens on Bernard coming to terms with his horrendous crime. It would seem that Ford’s control over him is a lot stronger and a lot more complex than first considered. Ford can change Bernard’s emotion and direction at the flick of a switch. When Ford brings Bernard back online, his first reaction is that of grief and guilt. He expresses new emotions, emotions associated with murdering somebody. None of the Hosts have ever killed a human being before so Bernard is feeling them for the first time. Ford, sensing his emotions are spiraling out of control, turns off the bad...

Prequels Are Coming? HBO Considers A ‘Game of Thrones’ Successor

With Game of Thrones in the midst of filming its penultimate season, HBO is already thinking ahead about how to continue the sweeping success of the award-winning fantasy show long after the final credits roll. The end of Game of Thrones, which began airing in 2011, has been in sight for a long time now. The shows writers, D.B. Weiss and David Benioff have pretty much confirmed that the eighth season of the show will be its last, and with the seventh season premiering next summer, fans are already bracing themselves for the inevitable end of what has become an incredibly well-loved pop-culture phenomenon. However, it seems that we may...

EW Elaborates On WESTWORLD Episode 07’s Big Reveal

EW Elaborates On WESTWORLD Episode 07’s Big Reveal

  SPOILERS! A big plot twist just hit us with Episode 07 of WESTWORLD. The episode entitled “Trompe L’Oeil” will certainly cause us to look at a certain character in quite a different light in Episode 08, “Trace Decay,” and onward. It might even cause fans to re-watch certain scenes a second time and perhaps adjust their theories accordingly. Let’s get right to it. And, remember SPOILERS are ahead. In other words, you shouldn’t be reading if you haven’t been watching. Okay, the major WTF, only hinted in our review, is that Bernard Lowe, Programming Director, is a Host under Ford’s bidding. The reveal happened in the...

Movie Review: Race

Movie Review: Race

  An athlete with the ability to streak down the track. Racial tensions that run high. A coach who sees more than just color, he sees talent. It is the world on the precipice of change. An economy on the brink of disaster. Jesse Owens not only made his mark in history as one of the greatest track and field stars, he was a humble man who worked hard and tried to make his way through life the smart way – not by fighting, but by using wit and intellect to get ahead. It couldn’t have been easy back in the 1930’s  when racial inequality ran rampant, and an African American man had to work twice as hard to prove himself, no...

HBO Documentary Films: UNDERFIRE: THE UNTOLD STORY OF PFC. TONY VACCARO

Overview: In World War II, Tony Vaccaro played two risky roles, serving as a combat infantryman on the front lines, as well as a photographer who shot 8,000 photographs.

Divorce: “Christmas”

Divorce: “Christmas”

Last week on Divorce, Frances (Sarah Jessica Parker) and Robert (Thomas Haden Church) get their own lawyers, though Robert’s first attempt at representation doesn’t go well. Frances has finally gotten a gallery space but has no artists to fill it. And Robert was still attempting to garner funding for his newest project, regardless of the fact that he’s about to go through divorce proceedings and is already hemorrhaging money. Nice. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=W77f8Dakl7w This week we join the family for the happiest of festivities: Christmas! Deck the halls, and down me now some whiskey because boy, oh boy, holidays are...

Elsie (Shannon Woodward) finds an anomaly and as she delves into explaining it, danger finds her. Ford’s (Anthony Hopkins) perception and experiences within the park start to point out something nefarious beneath the surface. How much influence did Arnold have before he killed himself?

My Week in Westeros

My Week in Westeros

My husband hit a milestone birthday this year and my gift to him was a week travelling around Northern Ireland, discovering historical hot spots and Game of Thrones filming locations. After a week exploring Winterfell, The Iron Islands and a quick stop at The Haunted Forest I have returned to regale you with my story.   Winterfell – aka Castle Ward Castle Ward was owned by the Ward family and the famous tower that you can see below was replicated several times using CGI to create the impressive Stark homestead. This tower was in the farm courtyard of a much bigger and grander stately home. The tower was the home of the Ward...

Movie Review: Allegiant

Ready for some more YA dystopian? Yes? Well, probably not but it is coming at you anyway. The third installment in the Divergent series, Allegiant, follows in the steps of its predecessors Divergent and Insurgent.  And since I already reviewed those, I feel it is a just precedent for me to review this one too.  Here’s what is in store for Tris and her friends. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3-kflOQmXY0 After the revelation of life outside the wall, Tris (Shailene Woodley) is determined to discover what is beyond Chicago.

Wednesday, Nov. 9th was the Last ANY GIVEN WEDNESDAY WITH BILL SIMMONS

There has been a lot of buzz going about that Bill Simmons’ HBO gig wasn’t doing so hot. And now ANY GIVEN WEDNESDAY is over. Its last installment was Wednesday, November 9 making 17 installments in all. Hell, HBO didn’t even let him officially wrap up his 20 episode run stopping just three short. But Bill Simmons isn’t leaving the network. Simmons does have a multi-year, multiplatform contract; he just isn’t going to appear weekly chatting sports and pop culture with his friends on a closed set anymore. Peter Nelson, EVP of HBO’s Sports Division stated – “HBO is committed to Bill Simmons, and we are excited to bring...
