CODES OF CONDUCT Becomes A Limited Series At HBO

CODES OF CONDUCT Becomes A Limited Series At HBO

Steve McQueen (Oscar winning 12 Years A Slave) will be helming a six-episode order for CODES OF CONDUCT for HBO. HBOWatch has been keeping track of this project for a while and it looks like HBO, in the end, could not pass on a work from the Oscar nominated director of a Best Picture movie. We first picked up on project, which was originally slated as an HBO Film presentation, with this post on 10.31.13. Almost a year later, on 10.14.14, the project took on its current title and gained a lead in Devon Terrell. Back then we stated that the character – is a young man from Queens as talented as he is ambiguous. His self-confidence will enable...

Movie Review: A Million Ways to Die in the West

Movie Review: A Million Ways to Die in the West

There’s a scene in A Million Ways to Die in the West where, hiding out from the bad guys in his flock of sheep, Seth MacFarlane’s character is urinated on. This goes on for several seconds before he finally runs off and for the rest of the movie you’re wondering if he ever washed himself since that happened. There’s another point in this movie where Neil Patrick Harris spends at least (or what feels like) two minutes going to the toilet in his and someone else’s bowler hat. I like bowler hats. A Million Ways to Die in the West is MacFarlane’s followup to the success of Ted, the movie about a stoner whose...

First Look At Game of Thrones Season 5 From the Red Carpet Premiere

Warning! Season Five Episode 1 Spoilers  With just twenty-four days to go until the general public gets to see the first episode of Game of Thrones, a few lucky fans, a host of Game of Thrones actors, and a multitude of press agents gathered together in the Tower of London to watch the Season Five in style. While many enjoyed seeing their favorite GoT actors dressed to the nines, the real excitement of the day came when the reviews of the screened episode began to roll in on various news-sites. While most articles chose to be light on spoilers, like Forbes magazine which delicately praised the episode without hinting much at the...

Looking: “Looking for Sanctuary”

Looking: “Looking for Sanctuary”

The guys of Looking have all been searching for a happy home. Happiness can be so fleeting. What one person sees as happiness, another person has a totally different notion. Especially when you’re in a relationship, you want to be happy with your partner and you have a wide range of emotions running the gamut: are you rushing into a relationship too fast? Will your friends like your new boyfriend/girlfriend? Are you in a relationship for the right reasons? Will your parents and siblings accept your partner? What if you’re “just friends?” When you’re trying build a house with someone you love, is your house a “home”...

Girls: “Daddy Issues”

Girls: “Daddy Issues”

Any Girls fan with a good memory probably reacted the same way I did to last week’s episode: “ELIJAH CALLED IT!” Hannah’s dad dropped the bomb on his wife last week concerning his long-repressed homosexuality, and we anxiously awaited Hannah’s reaction this week after her mom told her the news. Hannah has a knack for making any issue about her, so it was surprising to see her calmly having lunch with her father as they discussed the situation rationally. When her father asks her how she’s taking the news, she replies, “I’m proud of you and I’m worried about mom, but at the end of the day, this isn’t really about me.”...

George R.R. Martin recently created a buzz throughout the Game of Thrones community when he made a post on his blog, announcing that he was canceling appearances at several upcoming conventions in favor of working on Winds of Winter.  Although Martin has asserted before that he will be straightforward about announcing when the much anticipated sixth book in the A Song of Ice and Fire series will be released, many were quickly excited when the author finished his blog post with the note “Should I complete and deliver WINDS OF WINTER before these cons roll round, I reserve the right to change my mind.” Fans instantly jumped...

THE JINX Chapter 06: “The Second Interview” or “What The Hell Did I Do?”

  Overview: Present day – Nearly a decade has passed since the filmmakers began investigating Robert Durst and his alleged crimes. They have spoken to more than 100 participants in Durst’s story, including family, friends, police, lawyers, jurors and journalists in an attempt to get at the truth. Expectations: That is it. That is the official press release going into the final episode of this 6-part series. Hell, the title(s) of the installment offer more clues than that. We realize that it took Andrew Jarecki a long time to get this documentary series put together and in all comes to a head right now. But, first let’s go back...

VICE: “Protect and Serve”/”Coming to America”

VICE: “Protect and Serve”/”Coming to America”

Series Overview: Due to the construct of this second episode of the third season HBOWatch can deduce the following facts. Though the “Killing Cancer” special and the “Our Rising Oceans” premiere had longer runtimes the rest of the episodes seem to still adhere to the format of two segments by two different correspondents all within thirty minutes. We also note that this season titles revert back to the format from Season One. Instead of just naming installments “Episode One”, etc. each episode is given the title of the two segments contained therein. Shane Smith still introduces each segment from the VICE Brooklyn offices.  ...

New Insights Into The Future of Game of Thrones

New Insights Into The Future of Game of Thrones

In a recent article, Entertainment Weekly revealed exclusive interviews with many people who are in charge of Game of Thrones, discussing what the future may hold for the show. While most people are aware that the writers of Game of Thrones, D.B.

HBO/Showtime Team Up For Mayweather-Pacquiao Bout on May 02, 2015

HBO/Showtime Team Up For Mayweather-Pacquiao Bout on May 02, 2015

Did you ever think that HBO and Showtime would collaborate on anything? Well, this isn’t precedence actually, but if it was to happen twice a boxing event would be the most likely scenario. That is exactly what will happen when Floyd Mayweather and Manny Pacquiao duke it out in a big, BIG fight. Even this writer knows that and I don’t follow ‘the sweet science’ per se. Now be careful here. This is not just any bout about to be simulcast on the two rival networks – instead this is a big, BIG pay-per-view event because boxing fans have been hankering for this one for a long time and it is bound to be a big, BIG cash-in for...
