The Deuce Season One Finale: “My Name Is Ruby”

Business is good. Money is pouring in. Rudy, Vinnie, Bobby and Frankie are making large wads of cash from the parlor plus the new investment of the private viewing chambers. Life is good on the street for these guys. Eileen tags along with Harvey and continues to meet some of the muscle and money behind the adult movies and viewing chambers. She also gets to be in back of the camera, learning the various facets of the adult film industry – which is a sense of empowerment, considering what she used to do for a living (no judgement, I’m just happy that she’s starting to get an on the job education that doesn’t require her getting...

HBOWatch Movie Review: “Get Out”

HBOWatch Movie Review: “Get Out”

The wildly successful movie Get Out written and directed by Jordan Peele is coming to HBO this Saturday, November 4th, 2017. If by chance you haven’t seen it, you’ve probably heard the buzz surrounding the movie. During its initial release, it received rave reviews and buzz for having a 99% on Rotten Tomatoes. While the trailer hints at a thriller/horror/comedy, most people, including myself, were able to find an appreciation for the brilliant writing on social topics. Peele tackles hypnosis, interracial dating, privilege, prejudice, race and a host of other topics. What you can expect is a plot that weaves effortlessly between socially...

Mark Halperin’s Political Movie Not Continuing At HBO

Mark Halperin’s Political Movie Not Continuing At HBO

You might not know who Mark Halperin is but he is the author of “Game Change: Obama and the Clintons, McCain and Palin, and the Race of a Lifetime”, with John Heilemann. It was that book that became HBO FILMS: GAME CHANGE directed by Jay Roach with Julianne Moore as Sarah Palin. It was a success and HBO had tapped Halperin to take the look at the U. S. political system further with DOUBLE DOWN about the 2012 election. That project didn’t materialize, but HBO chose Halperin to address the controversial 2016 election after it ran its course. It is that project that is now dead. The reasons for its demise is not creative...

HBO Development Slate: Rae, Ruffalo, Oliver & LeBron Offer New HBO Content

HBO Development Slate: Rae, Ruffalo, Oliver & LeBron Offer New HBO Content

Here are three quick developments with some recognizable HBO talents behind them.

HBOWatch Movie Review: “Split”

HBOWatch Movie Review: “Split”

When it was announced that M. Knight Shyamalan had a new movie coming out, you could understand why I would be skeptical and a tad worried. He hasn’t at times had the best reputation for good films. It took seeing the trailer for me to be convinced it would be worth my time.  And how my, it was well worth my time, but take a look and see for yourself. I gotta say, that trailer completely gives me the hee-bee-jee-bees.  If James McAvoy is not on the radar for an Oscar, then the whole Oscar system needs to be reevaluated. McAvoy stars as Kevin, a man with 23 distinct personalities all percolating inside his brain space, and a 24th...

Vice Principals: “The Most Popular Boy”

Vice Principals: “The Most Popular Boy”

While the season is rapidly coming to a close and an end to the show, we still got to enjoy some fresh Gamby and Lee antics this week. After nearly blowing up his marriage, Lee seeks to make things right. Meanwhile, Gamby has taken up with Abbott and I’m starting to wonder how crazy she really is. Can’t say this show has ever been boring in its short run. Earlier this season we saw the relationship Lee had with his sisters. The constant bullying is what created Lee’s lying streak in his life, and this week we got to see the true depth of how far he would go and the damage it can cause. After learning last week that Lee...

The Deuce: “Au Reservoir”

The Deuce: “Au Reservoir”

Au Revoir – French for ‘goodbye’ – is a dominant theme in this episode, but I don’t know if the title is a play on that or not, but I’m sticking with it. Saying goodbye to a life that you were eager to get rid of; getting rid of societal expectations; trying to improve your life or the women of the Deuce supporting each other and trying to diminish the patriarchal chains is what really struck me. About time, too. Go on, girls, smash that damn patriarchy. This episode detailed a lot of the backstory of how pornography really became mainstream in New York. In actuality, the credit goes to a gay adult film that was made –...

ROOM 104: “The Missionaries” & “Phoenix”

ROOM 104: “The Missionaries” & “Phoenix”

We now peek inside the rented room to see who inhabits it in episodes 7 & 8 of ROOM 104. — “The Missionaries” This is the story of Noah & Joseph, two young Mormon missionaries who decide to test the boundaries of their faith. The question is, how far will they go? Now, you should really kind of see, in my opinion, where this episode is heading, but it is how it gets there that matters. But, the unfortunate part of this story is that you can’t tell it all in thirty minutes. We really don’t get to know these young men at all. Much of their personalities and lives aren’t revealed to us; there is just no time for it....

HBOWatch Short Film Review: “Tokyo Project”

HBOWatch Short Film Review: “Tokyo Project”

Writer/director Richard Shepard has described Tokyo Project as a labor of love, and it shows in every frame. During the filming of HBO’s Girls, the crew traveled to Japan, and Shepard, who was not directing at that moment, was inspired by his time in Tokyo to write a screenplay. Executive produced by Lena Dunham and Jenni Konner, Tokyo Project premiered at the 2017 Tribeca Film Festival. The film stars Ebon Moss-Bachrach as Sebastian, a businessman from Brooklyn who travels to Tokyo to promote his family’s line of men’s grooming products. While there, he wanders around the city and comes across Claire, an intriguing woman...

VEEP Creator Iannucci Heads to Space Next For HBO

VEEP Creator Iannucci Heads to Space Next For HBO

It was Armando Iannucci that brought VEEP to HBO in 2012 as creator, executive producer and writer. He was on hand to see the award-winning show through its first four seasons. VEEP is underway filming its seventh & final season now. Iannucci stepped away from the daily duties in 2015 citing travel and family issues. A born Scotsman he had family and work in the U. K. and the trips to the Washington D. C. area got to be a little much. However, since he discontinued his tenure at VEEP he still has had a development deal with HBO and that is where AVENUE 5 comes in. Not a lot is known about his new project, but HBO likes it enough to...

VEEP Closes After 2018’s Season Seven

VEEP Closes After 2018’s Season Seven

All good things must come to an end. And that means not only HBO’s big fantasy epic but the whip-crack sharp-witted VEEP. Selina Meyer’s political romp will conclude in 2018 after the seventh season. Casey Bloys, president of HBO programming had this to say – “The decision to bring ‘Veep’ to a close at the end of next season is bittersweet. We love the show and everyone involved but respect the producers’ choice to bring Selina Meyer’s journey to its conclusion after an extraordinary run of critical and award-winning acclaim. Julia Louis-Dreyfus’ comedic brilliance infused Selina with a dynamic presence and a vibrant...

HBOWatch Movie Review: “John Wick Chapter 2”

HBOWatch Movie Review: “John Wick Chapter 2”

And so we return to the day to day life of John Wick, a semi-retired contract killer and guardian angel of good dogs everywhere. When we last left off, he was bloody, bruised, but no longer broken after gunning through the entirety of the Russian mob, after the son of their boss had killed his dog. And now we see him trying to retreat back into the life he briefly had prior to that with a new dog and hopefully, time to finish healing. Of course, we know that’s not how it’s going to work out. The first John Wick was a special kind of action movie. It had action and style to spare, but what really set it apart and made it memorable was...
