Jul 21, 2014

“We have bigger problems than your mommy and your daddy issues.” One of the things I wanted the show to return to during the final season was the focus on vampires and the culture they’ve...

Movie Review: The Internship

Jul 18, 2014

The Internship is a bog standard comedy at best, although to be classed a comedy, it would probably have to make you laugh at some point. The Internship did this for me in the opening 5 minutes...

REAL SEX Back Then; SEX//NOW

REAL SEX Back Then; SEX//NOW

UPDATE: Hey, I watched it if you haven’t. There were three segments first was “Cam Girls” which shows us how easy it is to set up and get your joy on in front of a webcam. It is not, of course, just for fun and ladies are making a good bit of money in a few hours time.    The next segment focuses on “Emma // Eddie” who are not shy about the humpty dance in front of anyone who pays up. We are given a bang by bang look at their business.    “The Real Life” introduces the RealTouch device. It is the most interesting of the three pieces and shows us devices that linked through the internet offer up interactive throes of...

Movie Review: Admission

Movie Review: Admission

Tina Fey plays Portia Nathan, an admissions officer at Princeton University who whilst doing the recruitment rounds at various schools in her area, comes across the charming and well-travelled John Pressman (Paul Rudd), a former college classmate who has his own independent school. While visiting the school she meets a challenging student called Jeremiah who Pressman believes to be Portia’s son whom she gave up for adoption while at college. Jeremiah is a failing student who is simultaneously a genius, a prodigy and stands no chance at getting into a prestigious school like Princeton, despite his academic skills, on paper he is a failure....

Ja’mie: Private School Girl – Episode 6

Ja’mie: Private School Girl – Episode 6

Never one to balk at stretching the boundaries, the ever amazing Chris Lilley gave us a Ja’mie series finale that we will never forget. In the season finale of Ja’mie: Private School Girl, Ja’mie’s got a plan to show Hilford that passing her over for the Hilford Medal was a very bad idea, indeed. And boy did she pull it off! By exposing herself on Presentation Day, Ja’mie showed us all that she can not be so easily silenced. The image of Ja’mie, standing topless before the entire school was a shock to many, as Lilley, who plays Ja’mie, is a man. I don’t think anyone can argue that it was a...

GETTING ON: Sn 01 Episode Six Review

GETTING ON: Sn 01 Episode Six Review

Episode # 6 – The Concert (Season One Finale) This final episode of Season One is not really about the Caregiver’s Concert, in which Patsy, Dawn and Didi perform “Row, Row, Row Your Boat” accompanied by Jenna on the piano. But, if you have been watching the series you should have known that those types of moments are not really the focus.  The concert of the title for me, because I don’t really know the creator’s intent, is not about the coupling of sweet harmonies in the last minutes of the show, but the off-pitch clattering of those in the care unit throughout the majority of the half hour. Man, are they discordant. Three...

President Obama Enjoys Game of Thrones, Boardwalk Empire & The Wire

President Obama Enjoys Game of Thrones, Boardwalk Empire & The Wire

Presidents: they’re just like us! The Leader of the Free World has myriad responsibilities.  The events of the day weigh heavily on his mind.  So it comes as no suprise that, like most of you reading this premium television blog, the man needs a respite from the troubles piling up on his desk. The New York Times is reporting that Obama is into just about any show that’s edgy with hints of reality in them.  That describes most of HBO’s dramatic lineup!  Specifically, friends of the president say that he’s watching Game of Thrones and as we’ve previously reported: Boardwalk Empire.   Could you picture...

News Roundup: GAME OF THRONES’ Gleeson; Rock and Roll Inductees and More

This writer is just cleaning up some random news bits before getting a fresh start in 2014. Treat these as just some fun news as opposed to important HBO news as we wind down the year. Jack Gleeson Might Quit Acting Irish site The Independent nabbed an interview with GAME OF THRONES actor Jack Glesson recently and he told them that after his stint of King Joffrey Baratheon he is likely to quit the business. Says Gleeson - “[Acting] was always a recreation beforehand, but when I started doing Game of Thrones perhaps the reality was made too real for me. The lifestyle that comes with being an actor in a successful TV show isn’t...

HBO Movie Review: Warm Bodies

HBO Movie Review: Warm Bodies

We’ve seen a few zombie movies grace the screen the past few years. A few were intended to scare the audience, while others made the audience howl with laughter. “Warm Bodies” is actually a romantic zombie apocalypse movie, believe it or not. Yes, the hero in our movie is a zombie and the heroine is a human. R is a zombie who likes to collect 70s and 80s memorabilia and hangs out in an abandoned airplane. He also “interacts” with another fellow zombie, M, who I gather is his best friend. Their communication is, at best, a few grunts and nods of the head. The airport lounge and waiting area are filled with zombies just walking...

JAMES GANDOLFINI: A TRIBUTE TO A FRIEND

JAMES GANDOLFINI: A TRIBUTE TO A FRIEND

In a fast 35-minute piece HBO, family and friends of James Gandolfini saluted a man they clearly felt was beyond measure. Though I won’t go into detail of every moment shown I will break down the seven segments this tribute was made up of as it describes the late actor. ** He was THE GUY shares with us that even in the early days of THE SOPRANOS James G. was the charismatic magnet that held it all together. Steven van Zandt shares that he, as a newcomer into acting, was quickly respected by Gandolfini and everyone else fell into line afterwards. ** It Looks Like MAGIC and it was when Gandolfini acted. A number of people noted how he...

GETTING ON: Sn 01 Episode Five Review

GETTING ON: Sn 01 Episode Five Review

Episode # 5 – Nightshift  WooHoo! You go Niecy. Flat out and no doubt about it, but I thought Niecy Nash owned that episode beginning to end. The episode was a night in the life of the unit. After her assistant bails out Didi is left all alone to tend the ward. It starts out pretty uneventful as she occupies herself with solitaire and snooping through the fridge. It isn’t until a few medical emergencies occur that Didi starts feeling the stress. A new patient’s arrival and the late night thirst of Birdie are just the beginning though. It only gets worse when her colleagues arrive one by one.  What ensues is not really absurdity; they...

HBO snuck us another hit of Girls season 3 last night and this time we’re really getting a feeling for what this season may bring in terms of storyline.  Here’s what HBO has said about Girls season 3: Hannah has settled into newfound domesticity with Adam, and is rehabilitating her writing career. Marnie is recovering from her traumatic breakup with Charlie and working to achieve the life she feels she deserves. Nearing graduation, the newly single Shoshanna is trying to strike a healthy balance between partying and school. And Jessa continues to disrupt the lives of everyone around her. And here’s that new trailer...

The Newsroom Season 3 Could Begin Filming in March

The Newsroom Season 3 Could Begin Filming in March

This month we were a bit worried about The Newsroom season 3 when the HBO year-ender trailer failed to tout the existence of a 2014 season return to ACN.  But every time we hear from award-winning lead actor, Jeff Daniels he insists that the show is on!  We’ve reached out to HBO for comment on a third season of The Newsroom and we’ve been told that the network itself is excited for a new season but that scheduling is still being worked out.  But earlier this month Jeff Daniels again commented on the future of The Newsroom getting quoted in an interview thusly:   As for “The Newsroom,” Daniels’ HBO series set at a...

Family Tree Will Not Continue on HBO

Family Tree Will Not Continue on HBO

Sad news to report this weekend as you all head out to see your families.  Jim Piddock, one of the geniuses behind Family Tree tweeted this week that the show will not be appearing on HBO’s air if a second season is made saying: To all the countless fans and impartial inquirers who have asked about the future of Family Tree: the show won’t be returning to HBO (1/4) — Jim Piddock (@realjimpiddock) December 17, 2013   I know it’s almost unheard of for a show to get such critical acclaim and a passionate fan base not to get an order for a 2nd season (2/4) — Jim Piddock (@realjimpiddock) December 17,...
