Though some say that’s not cause for concern, the equivalent of three Chesapeake Bays’-worth of water melts off the island every year, affecting sea levels around the world. VICE embarks on an expedition to Greenland with climate scientist Jason Box to discover the reasons for the melting, and how the resulting sea level rise will mean devastation sooner than expected. Millions of men, women and children work as bonded laborers in Pakistan’s brick kilns pictured above). This abusive practice is facilitated by the devastating disenfranchisement of workers and by the...

This “breathtaking” (Time) crime drama, which was the most-watched first season of any HBO original series since the legendary premiere of Six Feet Under in 2001, makes its home entertainment debut on Blu-ray with Digital HD  DVD and...

Movie Review: The Hangover: Part 3

Movie Review: The Hangover: Part 3

It’s a bizarre situation to be in with a movie like this one. The first Hangover movie was a fun little adventure across Las Vegas for three friends who have to figure out where they left their friend during a bachelor party gone haywire with the inclusion of illicit substances and a stolen tiger. Well received and award winning, a sequel was all but inevitable. And inevitably it came, in “The Hangover: Part 2″ also known as “The Hangover: The First One Again Only Worse”. Making a sequel just to cash in on the recent success or name recognition of a movie doesn’t warrant a truly damning opinion of a...

Development Slate: LAUGHS UNLIMITED; MADAME ROSE; OPEN & More

A real interesting bit of news comes up this time around. Just when I thought a couple of projects had been passed over by HBO they resurface again. Plus, there are some other little tidbits that prove that HBO is always looking for the right content to make the premium channel more than just the usual TV fare.    HBO Considers Given Up For Dead Concept LAUGHS UNLIMITED  Out of the blue an announcement came forth that actress Melonie Diaz (pictured) has been cast as the lead in a dramatic work called LAUGHS UNLIMITED. Now we hear casting buzz all the time; the clinch here is that we haven’t even heard anything about this potential...

Doll and Em Episodes One and Two

Doll and Em Episodes One and Two

The first thing you need to understand about Doll and Em is that it is really a drama wrapped in the shroud of a comedy. I mean, sure, there are funny moments. But they are more of the awkward, absurd, or tragic sort. There is nothing slap stick or uproarious about the first episode. Instead, what we have is a relationship drama and many opportunities to snicker at the contradictory and selfish manner in which the main characters behave. Episode one begins with an absolutely fantastic montage revealing how Doll’s life fell apart after separating from her husband. This opening scene features no dialog and is accompanied only by music. I...

Game of Thrones: The Movie?

Game of Thrones: The Movie?

Ah it’s that time of year again.  Spring is in the air, taxes are almost due and yes: Game of Thrones is nearly back on the air.  And with that build up and excitement comes the inevitable appearances and interviews with our favorite cast of characters.  One character in particular, George R.R Martin himself, First of His Name (I’m guessing), has been making the rounds of late. Responding to a question about the possible overall length of the series posed by The Hollywood Reporter on the red carpet premiere for season four Martin spaketh thusly:  “It all depends on how long the main series runs.  Do we run for seven...

Game of Thrones – A Storm of Behind the Scenes Clips

As if you weren’t Throned out by now, there is still video material flowing in from HBO. Here are a few more interesting features. The first is an artisan piece on the wonders of shooting in Belfast: The second is a substantial feature on the bastards of Westeros, and teases us with more clips of the Boltons and Oberyn Martell: The third details the costuming work for the fourth season, with input from costume designer Michele Clapton: It’s likely that this batch of material, along with the FOURTH AND FINAL TRAILER (which aired exclusively at the New York premiere event), will be the final promotional material before the big...

Did HBO Miss Out on Soderbergh’s The Knick?

Did HBO Miss Out on Soderbergh’s The Knick?

Steven Soderbergh is a rare sort of director. His work on huge blockbusters such as Erin Brockovich, Ocean’s Eleven, and Magic Mike has made him a reliable commodity to the studio executives who care for nothing but tickets sold. His work on Out of Sight, Bubble, and Side Effects has earned him respect from film lovers who prefer movies that are more personal and that tell a smaller, more intimate tale.    Soderbergh first became involved with HBO in 2003 when they agreed to air his show K Street, which was about a political consulting group in Washington. It lasted for 10 episodes and was given mostly mediocre reviews....
