HBO Documentary Films: THE UNIVERSITY OF SING SING

Overview: “What happens to a dream deferred?” asked Langston Hughes in his classic poem “Harlem.”The question is especially relevant within the walls of the Sing Sing Correctional Facility, where 1,700 men serve lengthy prison sentences, often for violent crimes.  In 1998, five former inmates founded the privately funded Hudson Link for Higher Education, which enables incarcerated men and women to earn a college diploma.

As a result, some prisons have created hospices that enlist inmate volunteers to care for these terminally ill prisoners.  Oscar-nominated this year in the category of Documentary Short Subject, PRISON TERMINAL: THE LAST DAYS OF PRIVATE JACK HALL goes behind the walls of the Iowa State Penitentiary, one of America’s oldest maximum-security prisons, to tell the story of a terminally ill World War II veteran...

What if Lena Dunham Had Written: Game of Thrones?

Happy April Fools Day, everyone!  We thought we’d give Game of Thrones fans a day off this year from the trauma we put them through on this day in 2013.  Here’s a fun post from that should get a few laughs without causing a heart attack.  See you next year! (evil grin)  There is a lot of quality content in HBO’s line up, but what if Dunhman had pitched or adapted some of the other shows on the Network? Let’s take a look. Game of Thrones is an epic fantasy saga following the lives of a diverse and fascinating cast of characters. But what if Dunham had been at the helm? The...

Beam HBOGo to Your TV with Chromecast

There are several ways to get HBO Go content onto your home theater system but unfortunately most of them require an expensive piece of hardware such as recent gaming console or a separate, $100+ box of some sort.  But what if you don’t want all that hassle or extra cost?  Of course you can use the HBOGo app on the your phone or iPad but you just want HBO’s complete library on your TV? I’ve recently had the pleasure of using Google’s new Chromecast.  I picked one up as soon as I heard the recent news that HBOGo would be made compatible with the device.  The great...

VICE: Season Two Episode 3 Review

VICE: Season Two Episode 3 Review

  Overview: Cities like Detroit and Cleveland are at the forefront of a new phenomenon: scrapping. People left behind are literally ripping apart old schools, houses, hospitals and factories for raw materials to hawk to local scrap yards for cash. Scrap metal is one of the United States’ biggest exports, with billions of dollars’ worth traveling to China every year, where it’s invested in their infrastructure. The price for a pound of copper, for example, is about five times more than it was in 2002. Correspondent David Choe looks at the life cycle of scrap metal, from the people who...

HBO Comedy Special: John Leguizamo’s GHETTO KLOWN

HBO Comedy Special: John Leguizamo’s GHETTO KLOWN

This is just more of a quick reminder than a review. John Leguizamo’s GHETTO KLOWN debuted on 03.22 and this writer watched it and laughed pretty hard with it. It is still airing across the HBO platforms well into April and at HBOGO as well. GHETTO KLOWN was taped last November at the New Jersey Performing Arts Center in Newark, NJ. Leguizamo tells audiences that the show is like therapy and spins a “cautionary tale” that begins with childhood memories, continues through the early days of his acting career, and arrives on the sets of well-known TV series and major motion pictures,...

HBO Movie Review: “The Heat”

HBO Movie Review: “The Heat”

So, this is your typical buddy cop movie, except it’s with two women who play the officers. One is ambitious, prim and slightly arrogant. As in her colleagues wouldn’t miss her if she got a promotion, especially if it was in another town! The other is aggressive, sarcastic, and funny as hell and has a slightly unorthodox approach to her work. However, she gets the job done. As in 5 minutes ago. Melissa’s character, Shannon Mullins, is from a loud, boisterous and tight knit Irish family who hail from Boston. Sandra Bullock’s character, Sarah Ashburn, is an uptight FBI investigator who...
