HBO Will Film Multiple “Game of Thrones” Endings

HBO Will Film Multiple “Game of Thrones” Endings

After seven year, everyone is desperate to know how Game of Thrones will come to an end next season, and HBO wants to make sure that no one will get spoiled. In past years, keeping the plot of upcoming Thrones seasons secret has been a challenge– dedicated fans and paparazzi have stalked the show’s production, going to extreme lengths to spy on scenes being filmed and release photos and videos to the public. Last year, we had pictures of Jon Snow petting a dragon and throttling Theon Greyjoy months before the show aired. A year before that, we watched a blurry video of the Tower of Joy battle, as the enthused man behind the...

HBOWatch Movie Review: “La La Land”

HBOWatch Movie Review: “La La Land”

  From the Director of the critically acclaimed and Oscar-winning film, Whiplash comes Damien Chazelle’s follow-up film La La Land, a personalized love letter to Hollywood and jazz music with a dash of realism about the movie industries volatile nature. La La Land has been celebrated and praised unanimously for being a genre-breaking musical/drama/comedy/romance film with whispers of surrealism and notes of despair. With a plethora of Oscar nominations and Emma Stone taking the prize for her performance, there is no denying the success of this film. Under the ruse of a musical, the story takes us into the belly of the beast with...

Game of Thrones Beer Stein Serve Up Nectar of the Gods

Game of Thrones Beer Stein Serve Up Nectar of the Gods

“That’s what I do: I drink and I know things.” – Tyrion Lannister Would you like to drink and know things too? We just found a couple of handsome beer steins from a company called FUN that will get you there. We got ahold of the Baratheon (that’s the King from season 1, the Stag) and a cup featuring the Lannisters (the family with the incest and the dwarf for those uninitiated).  Here they are in all of their glory: The stein looks great and has a top that has a ton of detail on it. It’s pretty heavy but not cumbersome. It’s sure to impress the ladies (and sers) in the room. It seems about the right size for a...

George R. R. Martin Producing WHO FEARS DEATH For HBO

George R. R. Martin Producing WHO FEARS DEATH For HBO

We have known about the development deal that Song of Fire and Ice author George R. R. Martin has had with HBO for a while now. We were beginning to wonder if anything was going to become of it beyond the grandiose GAME OF THRONES spinoff spec scripts. He has latched on to another SF&F writer’s work and we will see if it ever comes to the network. Target as a potential series will be writer Nnedi Okorafo’s WHO FEARS DEATH. It is an award-winning book from 2010 that takes place in a future Sudan, Africa. The deal has only been confirmed by Okorafo until now. HBO just recently acknowledged that the concept is indeed in development...

PERRY MASON With Downey Jr. Gets New Writers

PERRY MASON With Downey Jr. Gets New Writers

It is interesting to note that the PERRY MASON production with Robert Downey Jr. didn’t die. If you recall from a previous news item Nic Pizzolato was to move on from his signature series to flesh out a story for Erle Stanley Gardner’s iconic criminal defense lawyer. That ended once the third season of TRUE DETECTIVE came into being. Pizzolato’s attention is all about that anthology series and not a Mason tale. The concept to bring the character back, however, was Robert Downey Jr.’s idea. He has now found new writers to take on the character that started in novels and went on to radio and film adaptations before actor Raymond...

Insecure: “Hella Disrespectful” & Season Finale “Hella Perspective”

Insecure: “Hella Disrespectful” & Season Finale “Hella Perspective”

  With the season coming to a close, it’s time to have our last check in on Issa, Molly, Lawrence, and the whole crew. It’s been a HELLA season, and there have been quite a few ups and downs for everyone involved. We gotta wonder where they left off and what might be to come next season.   Episode 7: “Hella Disrespectful” What’s the best way to stir the drama?  Put everyone in the same room at a dinner party. This week is nothing short of panic inducing stress from the tension lingering in that dining room.  Molly (Yvonne Orji) is trying to become  an equal in her work life but has to sit and...

Season 9 of CURB YOUR ENTHUSIASM Set For October 01

We think that everyone is aware that Larry Davis is returning. The hackers tried to burst our bubble but HBO has been teasing us with a few clips regarding Season 9 all along. Here is one place is what we have seen about the next season of CURB YOUR ENTHUSIASM which debuts Sunday, October 01 at 10:00pm ET. We have been waiting since 2011 for this guy to return. Yeah, he did in HBO Films: CLEAR HISTORY but that wasn’t the tongue-in-cheek version of himself. What the hell took him so long to give us a Season Nine? Figures. At least we got Larry David & company back and they are embarking on the new season on October 01 and running for a...

HBO Joins In On Hurricane Relief

HBO Joins In On Hurricane Relief

2017 is going to be remembered for a lot of things and one of them is hurricane season. First, there was Harvey and as of this writing we are waiting for Irma to make continental U. S. landfall and behind it is Jose and Katia is out there too. We all feel the impact in one way or another even if we aren’t in the strike zone. Hell, HBOWatch had one of its own in the path of Harvey hitting southeast Texas. As always when such disasters hit major telethons help to raise funds and aid and this time is no different. Here via an official Press Release is HBO’s involvements as the storms rage.     HAND IN HAND: A Benefit for Hurricane...

ROOM 104: “The Knockandoo” & “I Knew You Weren’t Dead”

ROOM 104: “The Knockandoo” & “I Knew You Weren’t Dead”

Here now is our take on Episodes 3 & 4 of the anthology series ROOM 104. Go ahead, knock on the door because you can never tell who is inside. — “The Knockandoo” The what? It is a brand of single malt Scotch whiskey  (ah, for a drink of that right now) if you take an ‘o’ off the end but other than that you got me. And therein lies the mystery. Well, it all has to do with a woman seeking salvation. She is visited by a cult priest promising to help her do just that very thing. She wants to transcend. Good luck with that. She is Deborah, played by Sameerah Laqmann-Harris; she could pass as a younger Alfre Woodward. The...

HBOWatch Movie Review: “Hidden Figures”

HBOWatch Movie Review: “Hidden Figures”

So, it turns out that some of the most profound work done at NASA was performed behind the scenes, and not only was it done by women, it was done by African American women. In the 1960s, the United States was hard at work, trying to come up with the latest technology that would advance their astronauts into space, but would have them navigate around the Earth. Now, getting satellites into space is especially important because the Soviet Union has had a successful launch. This means round the clock research, team work and execution and results. But for our three heroines, Katherine Johnson (who is a mathematician), Mary Jackson (future...

THE DEUCE Series Premiere Review

THE DEUCE Series Premiere Review

Though we couldn’t jump on it right away this site did want to take advantage of the Advanced Screening of the premiere of THE DEUCE. We couldn’t wait until 09.10.17 to begin David Simon’s next examination of the human condition. Our anticipation is high for this one as we go back to New York City, NY in the year 1971. The city is not at its best and there is a story to tell. Here is our take on THE DEUCE: “Pilot.” The story opens up as we focus in on a little corner bar down any little back street of the city and peek through its window to find Vincent Martino (James Franco) counting the night’s till. And as he exits his...

Insecure: “Hella Blows”

Insecure: “Hella Blows”

“Hella Blows” explores what it looks like when you get a taste of your own medicine. Issa, deep in her ho-tation is literally losing at every turn now. While she meant well reminding Daniel that she and he are just friends, it appears she probably should have had that conversation with herself. Issa completely sucks at understanding the parameters of causal sex. We see an awkward exchange between her and “neighbor-bae” when she shows up at his place unannounced because the light was on. Initially low-key, he grows weird and she does too, after a female calls for him in the back. In that moment, she’s Daniel and he’s Issa,...
