HBOWatch Movie Review: “Hacksaw Ridge”

HBOWatch Movie Review: “Hacksaw Ridge”

In a nutshell: HELL on earth. Imagine death is all around you: bodies blowing up, screaming all around, smoke, gas, darkness and decay. No matter how much gear you have on, no matter how much training you received in your army barracks, absolutely nothing prepares you for the sheer madness of warfare. Desmond Doss is a CO – a conscientious objector. He signed up for the army, but to help people as a medic. Ironic, because in the minds of his superior officers, warfare means protecting your rights and your freedoms at any cost, even if it means taking up arms and killing the enemy. Due to Desmond’s upbringing – a father (and former...

Game of Thrones Premiere Receives Warm, Record Breaking Welcome

Game of Thrones Premiere Receives Warm, Record Breaking Welcome

Last Sunday, Game of Thrones returned for its seventh, penultimate season after the longest wait for a new season in the show’s history. Not surprisingly, fans across the world welcomed Westeros back onto their screens with open arms. The premiere, “Dragonstone,” which features Daenerys Targaryen’s much anticipated arrival in Westeros, quickly became HBO’s most watched premiere ever. Additionally, “Dragonstone,” broke previous Thrones viewership records with a stunning 10.1 million views on the night of the premiere alone. As the season continues, we can expect more high viewership numbers,...

HBO Documentary Films: THE DEFIANT ONES

Overview: Set amid many of the defining events of the past four decades, The Defiant Ones tells the stories of Jimmy Iovine and Dr. Dre — one the son of a Brooklyn longshoreman, the other straight out of Compton — and their improbable partnership and surprising leading roles in a series of transformative events in contemporary culture. From director Allen Hughes (Menace II Society) this revealing, compelling and often-gritty story takes place in recording studios, in humble homes and massive mansions, in criminal courts and in the highest corridors of corporate power.   The four-part documentary event is told with the help...

TRUE BLOOD’s Nelsan Ellis Dead At 39

TRUE BLOOD’s Nelsan Ellis Dead At 39

We know that we are late to the funeral, but even this news can’t be scrapped a week or so later. We too, acknowledge the passing of Nelsan Ellis at the age of 39. Here is a IMDb  bio: Nelsan Ellis (born c. 1978) is an award-winning American film and television actor and playwright, perhaps best known as Lafayette Reynolds on HBO’s True Blood (2008). Ellis was born in Harvey, Illinois. Following his parents’ divorce, Ellis and his mother moved to Alabama. He moved back to Illinois as a teenager, and graduated from Thornridge High School in Dolton, Illinois, in 1997. Ellis attended Juilliard and, while there, wrote a...

Insecure Season 2 Premiere: “Hella Great”

Insecure Season 2 Premiere: “Hella Great”

Team Issa versus Team Lawrence Ok…so I’ll be the first to admit that going into Season 2 of Insecure, I was #teamIssa! No if ands or buts about it. Something about being the person in a relationship who feels like things are stagnant and just aren’t growing, plus the appeal of the unknown resonated with me more than the guy who sits at home, depressed, uninspired and unmotivated. But, in all fairness, we can fall victim to either role in real life…so choose your side carefully! What happens next? Well, even I wasn’t ready for the adventures we see Issa, Molly and Lawrence expose us to in the premiere episode. Issa (played by the...

Game of Thrones Season Seven Premiere: “Dragonstone”

Game of Thrones Season Seven Premiere: “Dragonstone”

I cannot lie, I avoided trailers and news and any single tiny piece of information regarding the 7th season of Game of Thrones because I wanted to go into the season fresh as the fallen snow that has begun to engulf the realm. So as the days grew near, I cannot emphasize how utterly and completely emotional I got over the premiere. Luckily, as such an awesome and intense standard has already been set by this groundbreaking and fantastic show, I was not disappointed. As the first episode of the season, it was pretty standard in one way. We got to check in with the important characters and see how they are beginning this season and how they...

Movie Review: “Keeping Up with the Joneses”

Movie Review: “Keeping Up with the Joneses”

Keeping Up with the Joneses follows the lives of two homebodies Karen and Jeff Gaffney (Isla Fisher and Zach Galifianakis) who get more than they bargained for when they begin snooping on their new neighbors Tim and Natalie Jones (Jon Hamm and Gal Gadot).  When the empty house on the block gets snatched up in a heartbeat, the Gaffneys wonder who could be so interested in their tiny little social bubble. Feeling already like their lives are a little dull, Karen and Jeff can’t help but be jealous of the gorgeous new neighbors. Tim and Natalie are regal and worldly, and more than the Gaffneys can handle. But when it becomes apparent...

HBO Rocks 2017 Emmy Nominations!

The top awards in television have officially announced the cream of the crop and HBO, once again, holds the most bids. The shows and people nominated are from 2016’s slate and even without GAME OF THRONES HBO leads with 111 nominations.

HBO Comedy Special: TOUR DE PHARMACY – Don’t Miss It

HBO Comedy Special: TOUR DE PHARMACY – Don’t Miss It

TOUR DE PHARMACY is a far tighter comedy routine than 7 DAYS IN HELL and that is what makes it work. The tennis mockumentary had a few moments that seemed added bits to flesh it out to 43 minutes where this spoof of the Tour De France is a solid 41 minutes of well-placed humor and no padding. Not only does it offer the spoof in a fit, fun package, but it utilizes its cast very well. And the most underplayed is Andy Samberg himself I thought. Most characters had two actors; one playing out the race in 1982 and one reflecting on it today. For example, Danny Glover played an older Daveed Diggs, Dolph Lungren as older John Cena, Jeff Goldblum...

HBO Releases Titles for First Three Game of Thrones Episodes

HBO Releases Titles for First Three Game of Thrones Episodes

With just a few days to go until Game of Thrones premieres on July 16th, HBO has finally released the titles and summaries for the first three episodes of the upcoming seventh season. It’s probably our last taste of what the new season has to offer before we see for ourselves. HBO continues to play its cards close to its chest– the titles of the episodes don’t offer much new information about the upcoming plot, and the sparsely worded summaries are similarly cryptic. Nonetheless, now we have something new to speculate about! Check out the titles and summaries below: Episode #61: “Dragonstone” Jon (Kit Harington)...

Movie Review: “Popstar: Never Stop Never Stopping”

Movie Review: “Popstar: Never Stop Never Stopping”

Ridiculous mockumentary featuring the stylings of Andy Samberg and Lonely Island?  Sign me up! Though thoroughly panned and considered a large box office bomb, I cannot deny that this film had something going for it at least a little bit. The documentary style follows the life of star Connor (Andy Samberg) and how his career in music has evolved. First, he became a star being part of a group called the Style Boyz, but once tensions began to rise he branched out on his own to become Connor4Real.  But things aren’t going super well for Connor’s new album and he soon must figure out how to be the best person he can be but also...

VEEP: The Final 5 Episodes of Season 6

VEEP: The Final 5 Episodes of Season 6

  This season of VEEP made it clear that there is really nothing more important to Selina than these two things: being elected President, and if she can’t be President, then the legacy she’s left behind. The first half of the season focused on a Selina whose legacy was questionable and embarrassing, to say the least. But in true DC fashion, troubles don’t last always. The episodes are #6 “Qatar” from 05.21; #7 “Blurb” from 05.28; #8 “Judge” from 06.11 #9 “A Woman First” from 06.18 and #10 “Groundbreaking” from 06.25. At this point in the season, Selina is all about business and image, which is essentially...
