The Knick: “Wonderful Surprises”

The Knick: “Wonderful Surprises”

  As we delve deeper into the hearts of the characters at the Knick, we see some filled with promise and determination; others with malice and greed. In 1901, the medical field is ripe for change: cutting technology such as the X-ray machine and fever cabinets help give doctors a better understanding on how to treat their patients. We also see the enlightenment of other characters who wish to embrace change and/or higher learning. All of the running around Thack has been doing, experimenting on corpses and such looks like it’s starting to pay off. The pig seems to be getting better and Thack sets his sights on his former fiancée,...

Movie Review: Unfinished Business

Movie Review: Unfinished Business

Someone must have invented a time machine because it seems like this movie, which only came out last year, has traveled to the future from the distant past of 2002. A time when the only known sources of humor came from extended gross-out gags and innuendos as opposed to characters in situations with irony. Which isn’t to say that there aren’t good comedies from back then or bad comedies that come out now, but it’s jarring when you see a movie that feels like it should have come out on the heels of American Pie being released now. This movie centers itself on the sympathetic plight of being a Dad who’s work takes him...

HBO Documentary Films: THE DIPLOMAT

HBO Documentary Films: THE DIPLOMAT

Overview: Ambassador Richard Holbrooke died unexpectedly from heart complications on Dec. 13, 2010. Shortly afterward, his eldest son, David Holbrooke, attempted the seemingly impossible: capturing the legacy of his influential father “to understand him better in death,” while traveling across the globe to reveal a behind-the-scenes view of U.S. foreign policy. Written and directed by David Holbrooke, the insightful and revealing documentary THE DIPLOMAT chronicles the political and personal life of the larger-than-life U.S. ambassador whose career spanned 50 years of American foreign policy, ranging from Vietnam, to Bosnia and...

HBO Films: The Leisure Class

HBO Films: The Leisure Class

  The Leisure Class is a film inextricably linked to its production, being the final project of Matt Damon and Ben Affleck’s newly revived series, Project Greenlight. When you look at a painting or listen to a song, you don’t normally see or hear the struggle that went on between conflicting artists vying to bring their vision to life. However, here that’s specifically the case as an entire television show was produced around the making of this film. From the start, Project Greenlight winner Jason Mann presented himself as someone with a vision he wanted to bring to life. It was his cinematic eye that shined through...

THE LEFTOVERS: “No Room at the Inn”

THE LEFTOVERS: “No Room at the Inn”

Last season I examined the first episode to feature a spotlight on Matt Jamison “Two Boats, and a Helicopter” it wasn’t my favorite of the season, and I was erroneously still believing there would be a solution to the mystery of the “departure”. Since then I’ve really grown to respect, and cherish The Leftovers as a deep mediation into loneliness and abandonment. This episode is the reason why the show works, and why this season has been some of the best television I’ve watched in a long time. “There’s a reason” The show opens with a song by the Bellamy Brothers entitled “Let Your Love...

Del Toro’s MONSTER Is No More For HBO

Del Toro’s MONSTER Is No More For HBO

Straight from the Latino-Review comes the news that Guillermo del Toro’s live action MONSTER is not going forward with HBO. We heard of his interest in developing the manga story way back in April of 2013. We followed up with the post that a pilot script was in hand in July of that year. Then there was nothing on that front until now. Of course, del Toro was busy with a Hobbit screenplay, Pacific Rim, The Strain and Crimson Peak. He’s a busy guy, maybe too busy. In an interview on the mentioned site the Q & A brought up MONSTER. Latino-Review: Can you give me an update on the status of ‘Monster’ project for...

Both Witherspoon/Kidman & Witherspoon/Dern Projects Moving Forward at HBO

Both Witherspoon/Kidman & Witherspoon/Dern Projects Moving Forward at HBO

We have already brought to your attention that Reese Witherspoon and Nicole Kidman have interest in bringing BIG LITTLE LIES to HBO. The limited series, based on the Liane Moriarity novel, is slowly moving forward. Just recently the project signed on a director, at least for the first episode or two. That director is Jean-Marc Vallee. Vallee, if you recall, filmed Witherspoon in the nominated Wild last year. This would be his first venture into TV. He will work off of scripts penned by acclaimed David E. Kelley, famous for such television fare as L. A. Law, Picket Fences, Chicago Hope and Ally McBeal. With that quartet of people behind BIG...

Jon Stewart Will Produce Content for HBO

Jon Stewart Will Produce Content for HBO

Hold on to your hats Daily Show fans, Jon Stewart is following Mr. Oliver’s lead and coming to HBO! Multiple outlets are reporting on the news saying:”The first project under the HBO pact involves Stewart working with cloud graphics company OTOY Inc. on what is described as a new technology to allow him to produce “timely” short-form video content to be featured on HBO Now, the newly launched stand-alone broadband service, multiple times a day.” Funny enough, Jon Stewart was on HBO 20 years ago and they’re happy to have him back today, in his prime. “Jon Stewart led a revolution that changed the face of TV...

In Production: David Simon’s THE DEUCE Pilot

In Production: David Simon’s THE DEUCE Pilot

James Franco is all slicked out in his period garb on the streets of the Big Apple shooting scenes for David Simon’s THE DEUCE. Earlier this year HBO granted the show-runner, just coming off of the HBO Miniseries SHOW ME A HERO, the go-ahead to shoot a pilot for the 1970’s set drama. It follows the story of the legalization and subsequent rise of the porn industry in New York from the early 1970s through the mid-1980s, exploring the rough-and-tumble world that existed in midtown Manhattan until the rise of HIV. The concept was inspired in part by the career of twin brothers who were players in the Times Square world and became fronts...

HBO Documentary Films: HOW TO DANCE IN OHIO

HBO Documentary Films: HOW TO DANCE IN OHIO

Overview: Making friends. Dating. Fitting in at work. Becoming independent. These challenges can be hard for any young adult, but for those with autism, coming of age can be paralyzing.

Encouraged to face their fears head-on, they are preparing to test their abilities. Directed and produced by Alexandra Shiva (Stagedoor), HOW TO DANCE IN OHIO charts the months leading up to the big day, going inside therapy sessions, as young women and men confront anxieties, learn dance moves and practice their social skills, aided by a...

The Knick: “The Best of the Best to Get the Best”

The Knick: “The Best of the Best to Get the Best”

Everyone at the Knick is a liar. Or, should I say, many of them are experts at putting on a ‘poker face.’ We see everyone here – rich, middle class and poor – hiding something. What is highly amusing to me is how badly the rich put on phony facades. In fact, they’re the ones doing most of the lying in this episode. The only person excluded from this is Bertie. Thack is back on smack. One wonders, is this because he just can’t stay away from the drugs because it clearly does not help fuel his medical genius streak for taking chances on newer surgeries and research, now does it? Bottom line is that he needs to start doing some...

Movie Review: The Rocky Horror Picture Show

Movie Review: The Rocky Horror Picture Show

The Rocky Horror Picture Show is an essential watch for Halloween, it has everything you could possibly want from a film; drama, suspense, romance, music, horror and Meatloaf. Rocky Horror transcended genres, contorted stereotypes and sparked a global fascination for that sweet transvestite from transsexual Transylvania. So come up to the lab and see what’s on the slab. I see you shiver, with antici… When Rocky Horror first came out in movie theatres, it was met with a wholly unimpressed audience, for this was not a film for your average Joe movie goer, this was a movie for the midnight audience, the underground culture. It wasn’t...

Movie Review: The Purge: Anarchy

Movie Review: The Purge: Anarchy

Okay, so admittedly, I am not the biggest fan of horror films. I don’t do jump-and-scare tactics. However, as I’ve grown up and become more exposed to horror films, I have come to appreciate the psychological elements of a good horror film. I still hate jumpy bits in films, but since I have no issue with gore I will say I’ve grown to enjoy some horror. The backstory of The Purge is an interesting psychological element.  For those of you that might not be familiar with the first film, allow me to explain.  In a future America, the year 2022, which is admittedly not that far in the future, the new Founding Fathers have set...
