The Leftovers Series Finale: “The Book of Nora”

Jun 6, 2017

I confess that Nora was my least favorite character throughout the entire Leftovers series. I don’t know why; I felt she was too stiff, too rigid and devoid of any emotion. Then again, I...

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. In Columbus, Ohio, three young women living with autism now face perhaps the biggest challenge yet: a spring formal dance. 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...

What’s On: HBO Schedule For November 2015

What’s On: HBO Schedule For November 2015

HBO and its fans are gearing up for some exciting programming and HBOWatch is here to cover it. It is now November and HBO pads its content this time of year and builds up to a big new year. We think and hope 2016 is going to be huge so get on the bandwagon now and enjoy all the fun and drama HBO offers to close out 2015 over the next two months. In November we add great music and some intense boxing action along with acclaimed series. Regardless of how you enjoy your HBO content let us be thankful for the rich and intriguing entertainment the network provides. What do you say? Shall we carve into it and get right to that good stuffing?...

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...

Movie Review: The Pyramid

Movie Review: The Pyramid

Directed by Gregory Levasseur and released in 2014, The Pyramid follows found footage style cinematography as a father-daughter team of archaeologists investigate a buried pyramid in the midst of Egyptian protests. Starring Denis O’Hare as Holden and Ashley Hinshaw as his daughter Nora, the team ventures down into the depths of the unknown and could very well not make it back out alive, as the trailer shows. Admittedly, I have lost my fascination with found footage films, especially horror. Having seen a few of the films, I find they follow similar patterns.  While I do appreciate some horror films, I enjoy psychological thrills more...

Vinyl, Girls & Togetherness Get February 2016 Premiere Dates

Vinyl, Girls & Togetherness Get February 2016 Premiere Dates

Grab your calendars because HBO’s 2016 Winter schedule has taken a slight shift. We all thought that Vinyl, Girls and Togetheness were going to premiere in January. Heck, even the official trailer said January at the end of it! But no more. For whatever reason, HBO has pushed back their traditional Winter block to mid February 2016. This is over a month later than we’d anticipated. For clarity here are the premiere dates in question: Vinyl – Sunday, February 14th at 9PM Girls – Sunday, February 21st at 10PM Togetherness – Sunday, February 21st at 10:30PM This not only pushes back Vinyl and the other two shows,...

The Knick: “You’re No Rose”

The Knick: “You’re No Rose”

(Hey, there are spoilers; that’s just the way it is.) Dr. John Thackeray is back! Inspector Speight is dead! Sister Harriet is barely holding up. Dr. Algernon Edward’s eye condition is getting worse. Dr. Everett Gallinger’s glacial tone is ever present. Dr. Bertie Chickering can barely conceal is disgust for Thackery and promptly hands in his resignation. Nurse Elkins’ father comes into the fold. Cleary encounters issues with his investments. Cornelia is stifled by her high society demands and Barrow continues his skimming off the top to make a profit, albeit on the sly. In other words not one person or situation around the...

THE LEFTOVERS: “Orange Sticker”

THE LEFTOVERS: “Orange Sticker”

We now return to the “A” story of Kevin Garvey in Jarden, Texas and “it looks like you got a lot of explaining to do, Sport.” Though Kevin is probably going to have to explain his actions as some point not much explanation is needed regarding this episode if you’ve been paying attention. The only moments that seemed odd in this one was the beginning. Let me riff on that for a second before we move on. So the earthquake rumbles through, right? It wakes up Nora, but doesn’t seem to rile Jill too much or the neighborhood. Nora runs outside to look for Kevin and the neighborhood is calm outside of an alarm sounding and a...

HBO Cancels The Brink

HBO Cancels The Brink

After an official renewal it isn’t common to see HBO cancel a series. It takes a lot of effort and time to bring a series to life, even a second season of a series! So it suprised many to hear this afternoon that The Brink had been cancelled by HBO.  Here’s the quote from HBO itself: “After evaluating our schedule and our programming needs, we unfortunately decided we cannot give The Brink the attention it deserves for a second season. We are proud of the first season and wish everyone involved in this show the very best.” The statement is true, actually. HBO’s schedule is going to be bursting at the seams in 2016....
