John Oliver and Net Neutrality

John Oliver and Net Neutrality

You know, I was going to wind down talking about LAST WEEK TONIGHT WITH JOHN OLIVER because he has twenty-four installment in his premiere season and it was going to be too difficult to generate something every week. The intent was just to give you a heads up about the series for the first few episodes until those interested caught on. Well now I can’t let this week go by without addressing the whole net neutrality issue that came up. I’m sure you’ve seen it by now. First off, as he has already done once or twice, he dared his audience, in the episode of 06.01, to get involved in the issue of the night – net neutrality. Here is...

Darren Aronofsky Adapting Margaret Atwood’s Dystopian Sci-Fi Trilogy for HBO

Darren Aronofsky Adapting Margaret Atwood’s Dystopian Sci-Fi Trilogy for HBO

Aronofsky is known for his dark portraits. You’ve probably seen his latest works, Noah and Black Swan. But real Aronofsky fans remember movies like Pi and Requiem for a Dream. Over the past year we reported on Darren’s ongoing dealings with HBO but nothing solid had yet surfaced. Today it was revealed that HBO has moved a series into development attached to the Oscar-nominated director. The project, based on Margaret Atwood’s novel trilogy Oryx and Crake (2003), Year Of The Flood (2009), and MaddAddam (2013) is set in the mid-21st century in a world where corporations have taken over for governments and the genetic...

Game of Thrones 4.08 Recap – The Mountain and the Viper

Game of Thrones 4.08 Recap – The Mountain and the Viper

Directed by: Alex Graves Written by: David Benioff & D.B. Weiss Valar Morghulis. This was an episode plagued by death. By the sword. The spear. A monster in the guise of a man, using only his hands to crush the skull of the Prince of Dorne. Littlefinger’s interrogation, and Tyrion’s sentencing. All men must die. But does it really have to be so gruesome when it happens? To summarize: The Wildlings who made it past the Wall have converged on Molestown, the town where Sam hid Gilly in order to protect her from the savagery of the Night’s watch. Discovering Jorah Mormont’s true reason for swearing allegiance to the Targaryens,...

HBO Movie Review: R.I.P.D

HBO Movie Review: R.I.P.D

Normally, when I see that Jeff Bridges is going to be in a movie, I am excited. Unfortunately, I can’t really muster any enthusiasm for the movie “R.IP.D.” Even a heavyweight like Bridges can’t seem to save this one. Ryan Reynolds is some nice eye candy to look at and Kevin Bacon plays a real scumbag character (which I find that he does that in a lot of his movies). The movie starts off on present day, with Reynolds playing a Boston police detective named Nick Walker. He is partnered with Bacon’s Bobby Hayes. You just know that this partnership is not going to end well; the two of them take some gold (that obviously didn’t belong...

LAST WEEK TONIGHT Still Covering News on Its Week Off

As we know John Oliver and crew had the Memorial Day 2014 weekend off, but as this web exclusive proves just because there was no show doesn’t mean there was no news. So Mr. Oliver does the best he can to predict just what the news might have been. Check it out and don’t forget to laugh. You should find something to laugh at surely. It is not a full blown show as it is under five minutes long and it is not slicked up with the graphics and clips but it might tide you over until next Sunday rolls...

VICE Season Two Episode 10 Review

Overview: In March 2011 the Tohoku earthquake in Japan created a tsunami that killed some 16,000 people and caused an estimated $210 billion worth of damage. The tsunami crippled the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant, resulting in massive emissions of radioactive materials, the likes of which hadn’t been seen since Chernobyl in 1986. In the aftermath of the Japan disaster, the government and TEPCO, the plant’s operator, withheld information about the extent of the damage, causing a culture of fear and mistrust. Three years later, citizens and the international community are left wondering if Japan really does have the...
