HBO Documentary Films: BOLSHOI BABYLON

HBO Documentary Films: BOLSHOI BABYLON

Overview: In January of 2013, Sergei Filin, artistic director of Russia’s celebrated Bolshoi Ballet, was attacked by an unknown assailant who threw acid in his face. The Bolshoi’s ballet company had long been part of the nation’s identity, but this mysterious and vicious attack thrust it into the limelight for all the wrong reasons, pulling back the curtain on the scandals and infighting plaguing the iconic institution. When one of their own – male soloist Pavel Dmitrichenko – was arrested and charged with the crime, it revealed a company defined by personality clashes, power struggles and professional jealousy, something Bolshoi...

Miro and Bernard are writing the script and will executive produce the mini with actor Sean...

Westworld Will Resume Production in New Year

Westworld Will Resume Production in New Year

We’ve all been waiting for the new year as HBO plans to heat up their 2016 lineup to a temperature not reached with their 2015 offerings. With True Blood, Boardwalk Empire and The Newsroom all ending in 2014, this year has seen HBO struggle to keep the schedule competitive in an increasingly premium TV battlefield.  A season of True Detective that failed to match its Freshman offering’s ratings numbers didn’t help either. Westworld could have changed all that, though. It was all set to premiere in the Fall but HBO pushed that back into 2016 when they decided it needed a bit of rejiggering.  Production has been on hold...

Jean Marc Vallee Directing BIG LITTLE LIES

Jean Marc Vallee Directing BIG LITTLE LIES

Let’s clarify that a bit – Vallee is directing ALL SEVEN episodes of BIG LITTLE LIES. We reported back in May that the Liane Moriarty comic novel was being developed with Nicole Kidman and Reese Witherspoon and then mentioned later on that Vallee was entertaining directing a couple of episodes. It has been confirmed now that Jean-Marc Vallee (pictured), who directed Witherspoon in Wild, will be manning the entire run of the limited series about the unraveling lives of three mothers whose common bond is that they have children enrolled in the same kindergarten. The series, written by big named scribe David E. Kelly, also has other big...

The Knick Season Two Finale: “This Is All We Are”

The Knick Season Two Finale: “This Is All We Are”

You have no idea how hard I yelled at the television screen in front of me. In a terse, emotionally charged season finale, we see some of the good guys win and we see the seedier elements get what they want. Is it fair? Is it morally just? It all depends on what you’re personal definition of morality is. Fans watched as Cleary came to rescue John from off the floor at Ping Wu’s heroin establishment. It pretty much goes downhill from there and this episode was not one for the weak or faint at heart. Fans watched as Cornelia was given information that implicated her brother in their father’s death and the fire of what was going to be...

HBO Documentary Films: VERY SEMI-SERIOUS – A PARTIALLY THROUGH PORTRAIT OF NEW YORKER CARTOONISTS

HBO Documentary Films: VERY SEMI-SERIOUS – A PARTIALLY THROUGH PORTRAIT OF NEW YORKER CARTOONISTS

Overview: Every Tuesday, eager cartoonists line up outside the office of New Yorker cartoon editor Bob Mankoff to show off their work. After he sifts through thousands of submissions, the magazine ends up buying and publishing about 15 each week. Directed by Leah Wolchok and produced by Davina Pardo, this documentary offers a window into The New Yorker, the undisputed standard bearer of the single-panel cartoon, and an unprecedented glimpse into the process behind their creation and publication. Editor David Remnick notes that cartoons have been a major component since The New Yorker began as a humor weekly in 1925. The lighthearted yet...

GETTING ON Series Finale: “Reduced To Eating Boiled Magazines and Book Paste”

GETTING ON Series Finale: “Reduced To Eating Boiled Magazines and Book Paste”

One of my first posts ever for this site talked about ‘the little shows’ and how I was going to pay attention to them because I knew everyone else would focus of the bigger series that HBO has aired over the years. GETTING ON was certainly one of those ‘little shows.’ It was acclaimed content but not high profile content. My reviews of the entire series in some small way helped promote the series as one that was just as good as GIRLS or VEEP. I was glad of being the sole reviewer and a loyal follower of this series. So, with that, let’s get on with the final review. One of my first posts ever for this site talked about ‘the...

Movie Review: The Longest Ride

Movie Review: The Longest Ride

Nicholas Sparks’ novels seem to be all the rage. Every year, it’s as if one of his books is made into a movie; think of A Walk to Remember, Safe Haven, The Lucky One, Dear John. All these movies are romantic dramas, they all have attractive leads, some sort of emotional or physical crisis, trials and a reunion of sorts. Sometimes the endings are happy and other times, painful or bittersweet. The two main characters in this one, Sophia ( Britt Robertson and Luke (Scott Eastman), couldn’t be more opposite of each other. She is an artsy type, with a keen eye for design, texture and colors and he is a rough and tumble cowboy who competes...

Last Week Tonight with John Oliver: a Look Back at 2015

Last Week Tonight with John Oliver: a Look Back at 2015

I’ve been a fan of John Oliver since his days at The Bugle podcast, in which he discussed political topics with partner Andy Zaltzman. I am also a Late Night and political junkie. This year has seen seismic changes in the Late Night landscape: Stephen Colbert replaced David Letterman, James Corden replaced Craig Ferguson, Trevor Noah replaced Jon Stewart, and Oliver’s former colleague Larry Wilmore debuted his own show. Amidst all this change, Last Week Tonight With John Oliver saw increased viewership and influence during its second season, which aired through February to November of 2015. It became a social media phenomenon,...

Development Slate: Rowling, Bigelow, Israeli Drama & More

Development Slate: Rowling, Bigelow, Israeli Drama & More

Even if you think HBO seems to have a full slate for 2016 that doesn’t mean it can take it easy. It is a highly competitive market out there for entertainment content and evidence of that includes the Media pitting HBO & Netflix against each other. HBO needs to keep at it and below is its evidence that it is doing just that. All this aggressive maneuvering makes it worthwhile for the fans for sure. Take a look at some of the latest developments. We begin with…   JK Rowling returning to HBO? The U. K.’s BBC is definitely ramping up another production from Harry Potter scribe JK Rowling and this time it is THE CORMORAN STRIKE...

The Knick: “Do You Remember Moon Flower?”

The Knick: “Do You Remember Moon Flower?”

We’re witness to many awful things in the penultimate episode. (First, if you need to witness the last one, go ahead.)  There were four themes that I picked up on during this one: sex, racism, parental roles and how power tends to corrupt all. In a flashback to 1894, we see the history between Robertson and Thackery and how Thack saved an entire village from small pox. We see how Robertson made his fortune and how he was able to cut costs by travelling through Nicaragua, in order to save time and money, to get to the Pacific. Robertson also brought with him disease (cargo full of small pox germs), which the local police held him...
