G. R. R. Martin Planning A New HBO Series

G. R. R. Martin Planning A New HBO Series

George R. R. Martin is in collaboration with HBO to create a sci-fi drama work under the title of CAPTAIN COSMOS! At first I thought this a belated April Fool’s Day joke when the above bit of news came to our attention. Mr. Martin, creator of the “The Song Of Fire & Ice” series of fantasy novels, cannot even finish his current project let alone ramp up something new, so surely this wasn’t true. It wasn’t until we recalled that George was indeed in a first-look development deal with Home Box Office to create new material that it dawned on us that this could be fact. Another hint that he is carving time out to work on the new...

Movie Review: Jersey Boys

Movie Review: Jersey Boys

This movie is about the rise and fall of one of music’s famous quartets, The Four Seasons. It also showcases the backdoor hustling, deal making and schmoozing that went on in the music industry during the 1950s. You either had luck, talent or both to make it in the music scene. But like all good things, money starts to become an issue; trust amongst the group is shattered; personal and professional relationships shatter and tempers flare. Familiar faces include Christopher Walken as mob boss Angelo DeCarlo and Vincent Piazza as Tommy DeVito. Interesting to note, the movie gives four distinct perspectives on what really went down. It’s...

New Excerpt from The Winds of Winter Released

New Excerpt from The Winds of Winter Released

With all the talk of the books catching up with the TV show as the sixth book in the series falls farther and farther into the future– George RR Martin may be trying to belay some spoilers.  Yesterday, the author released an an excerpt from a chapter in  The Winds of Winter.  The chapter is from Sansa’s point of view and obviously contains some major spoilers (even for book readers!) Here’s a taste if you’re into that sort of thing:  No man can wed me so long as my dwarf husband still lives somewhere in this world. Queen Cersei had collected the head of a dozen dwarfs, Petyr claimed, but none were Tyrion’s....

Potential HARD KNOCKS 2015 Teams Sound Off

More than likely this post will be updated often over the course of the year as HBO Sports tracks down the best possible team to be the star attraction in 2015’s edition of HARD KNOCKS. As we are well aware an NFL team that qualifies (one that has not appeared on the show already, one that has not been in a Playoff Season in the past two years, and one that is not transitioning with a new coach) will be chosen by the NFL if a team does not willingly volunteer. The eligible teams are listed here. Two teams heard from voicing their opinion on the matter have been the Buffalo Bills and the Cleveland Browns. First, up in Orchard Park, NY we...

Entourage Movie Preview Released!

Entourage Movie Preview Released!

HBO pretty much holds the staple on developing amazing shows that stick with viewers years after their off the air. In the past decade, they’ve capitalized on this by taking famous shows and turning them into motion pictures as a way to give their audience another taste of the shows they love. The success of the Sex In The City movies (2008) was unparalleled, leading to two profitable sequels and a very happy fanbase. HBO is taking a leaf from the SATC book and making another famous show into a motion picture. The Entourage movie, a long awaited look into the crazy acting world we were all devastated to say goodbye to, will premiere on...

VICE: “The Line Drawn In The Sand” / “Outsourcing Embryos”

Overview: Cocaine use in Europe has increased dramatically over the past decade, and new routes have evolved to supply the demand.

New Game of Thrones Teaser Reveals Little, Teases Much

New Game of Thrones Teaser Reveals Little, Teases Much

The wait is almost over, and HBO is just rubbing it in. We’re thirteen days  away from the world-wide premier of Season Five of Game of Thrones, and I don’t know about anyone else, but I’m ready for HBO to stop torturing us with actor interviews and trailers and teasers, and show us a real episode. Still, since we still need to wait exactly one day less than two weeks, we have to make due with what we can, and today that comes in the form of a new teaser trailer HBO recently released on it’s official Game of Thrones Youtube channel. Exciting, right? Maybe not so much.  It’s only a thirty second, re-working...

Movie Review: “Into the Storm”

Movie Review: “Into the Storm”

When I was a little girl, I had a morbid fascination with tornadoes. Not the damage that they caused to people’s homes and communities, nor the hurt and devastation caused to animals and humans. I was always fascinated with the power and fear – the power that tornadoes had over human nature and the fear it instilled in the hearts of many. Tornadoes wreak havoc wherever they strike. If it’s any consolation, it’s that humans rise up again and rebuild their lives and try to carry on with a brave face. In the movie “Into the Storm” we see a group of storm chasers who are attempting to document a tornado; a meteorologist trying to...

New Video Gives Hints of Arya’s Storyline In Season Five

New Video Gives Hints of Arya’s Storyline In Season Five

A recently released clip from Season Five has given us a better look at the House of Black and White which will be a pivotal location in Arya Stark’s storyline this season. The actress who plays Arya, Maise Williams recently was a guest on the talk-show Jimmy Kimmel Live  and was able to share a brief look at one of her characters’ scenes from Season Five. In the scene, we see Arya, standing before two doors–one black and one white, which stand ajar. As the scene begins, an old and  grizzled man appears from the darkness inside, fixing Arya with a impenetrable stare. “Hello,” begins Arya, uncertainly, and...

HBO Cancels Looking, Plans Final Special Instead of Season 3

HBO Cancels Looking, Plans Final Special Instead of Season 3

Sad news for fans of HBO’s “Looking” which followed the lives of three gay men in San Francisco as they made their way through the modern world.  HBO has elected not to renew the show for what would be a third season. While HBO doesn’t normally make these decisions based on ratings, it probably played a role in Looking’s cancellation.  Only 240,000 viewers watched Looking this season, on average.  That’s below almost every series currently running on HBO’s air right now. “After two years of following Patrick and his tight-knit group of friends as they explored San Francisco in search of love...
