Girls: “Triggering”

Jan 20, 2015

One of the best aspects of Girls is how true it rings to modern American life, even if only for a particular niche of society—in this case, four 20-something girls trying to figure out the...

Movie Review: 300: Rise of an Empire

Jan 23, 2015

Approaching a historical Greek film is always very subjective when the film is mostly embedded in fantasy and sensationalism rather than the portrayal of historical accuracy. For some...

Premiering 05.26 – HBO Films: BEHIND THE CANDELABRA

Premiering 05.26 – HBO Films: BEHIND THE CANDELABRA

There is plenty happening on HBO and we at HBOWatch try to cover it all. So, with that in mind, there is one such offering that warrants some attention this weekend. It is HBO Films: BEHIND THE CANDELEBARA, which premieres in place of GAME OF THRONES, VEEP & FAMILY TREE Sunday night (05.26) at 9:00pm. To get you in the mood for this glitzy bio-drama about entertainer Liberace and his tumultuous relationship with Scott Thorson here are some TnT’s (Teases/Trailers) that  contain good background information. We start with “An Invitation To The Set.”There is really no surprise here. It is all about the relationship. It is based on...

Game of Thrones Takes Memorial Day Hiatus

Game of Thrones Takes Memorial Day Hiatus

Wait wait wait! You mean, I don’t get to find out what happens to Tyrion and the gang until 2 weeks from now?!  But Dany! And Robb! And Sansa! And Arya and the Hound! And and and!… With so much about to happen and only two - 2! - episodes left, I just don’t know what I’m going to do with myself.  I guess I could start weeding my garden… break out the lawnmower… clean the swimming pool… actually participate in the world… So what a cliffhanger. Poor Gendry, at the mercy of Melisandre and Stannis. And just what can or will Davos do? Those leeches popping in flame did not make for a pleasant...

HBO Documentary Film: INSIDE OUT: THE PEOPLE’S ARTS PROJECT

HBO Documentary Film: INSIDE OUT: THE PEOPLE’S ARTS PROJECT

Overview: Known for billboard-sized photographic portraits of everyday people in urban settings, French street artist JR has a simple call to action: “Tell me what you stand for, and together we’ll turn the world inside out.” To transform his idea into reality, he created the Inside Out Project, the world’s largest participatory art project and a remarkable testament to the power of the image and the role art can play in transforming lives. JR, who himself remains anonymous, (his full name is unknown and he always wears sunglasses and a fedora in public and on camera) asks people to take photo portraits and send them to him. He then...

You Don’t Need to Like Jaime Lannister

You Don’t Need to Like Jaime Lannister

“There are no men like me. Only me.” After a rather emotional confession in the bath, it seems like views of Jaime Lannister and his status as an arrogant, self-centered tool are showing signs of change. Begrudging respect is starting to form based on the righteous act he performed in his past that branded him with the title of “Kingslayer.” It’s a funneled perspective that makes us forget just who he is and what he’s done. He’s still a self-centered, arrogant tool but he’s starting to endure the consequences of the bad karma he spreads. After all, in the first episode he did push a kid out...

Development Slate – HBO Films: GORBACHEV

Development Slate – HBO Films: GORBACHEV

Playtone Productions is back at it with yet another historical drama for HBO. No, it is not a sweeping WWII mini-series; though remember one is in the preliminary works. This time it is a biographical look at Mikhail Gorbachev, as in the former Soviet Union president. As history tells us it was during his term as President, the USSR’s only one at that, that the Union crumbled in 1991. Gorbachev was a big figure in history and this movie, showing the dissolution of his country, he will be a big figure as well. Mr. G. will serve as a consultant to the project along will a few aides who served under him at the time. Tom Hanks and Gary...

“Treading the Boards” Apparently Means You’re an Actor: “Family Tree” Debuts Its Second Episode

“Treading the Boards” Apparently Means You’re an Actor: “Family Tree” Debuts Its Second Episode

Last week, HBO and Christopher Guest debuted Guest’s new television show/mockumentary about a man, Tom Chadwick, searching for the history of his family. Along with Tom, we met his sister Bea (and her puppet, Monkey, who lives on her right hand and helps her express herself), their father Keith, and Tom’s best friend Pete Stupples. Other fun people included Mr. Glenn Pfister, owner of Mr. Pfister’s Bits and Bobs; Neville St. Aubrey, a specialist in 19th- and 20th-century photographs; and Ellie, a woman who, while on a date with Tom, we find out believes you can go back to man living with dinosaurs in your genealogy (because...

Game of Thrones Season 3, Ep. 8: “Second Sons”

Game of Thrones Season 3, Ep. 8: “Second Sons”

Stannis leads the way as things heat up in this week’s episode of ‘Game of Thrones.’ These past few episodes have left us wanting. It’s been hard to keep up with so many rapidly changing, and sometimes rather boring, story lines and characters. ‘Second Sons’ is tight and contained, no longer jumping all over Westeros. For me, it has been a relief. Our attention remains fixed on Dragonstone, Kings Landing, and the eastern city of Yunkai, giving us a more intimate understanding of motives, characters and story. We haven’t quite reached the climax of Season 3, but rest assured, ‘Second...

Another Short Tease for The Newsroom’s Second Season

Another Short Tease for The Newsroom’s Second Season

HBO leaked a small little Newsroom trailer this weekend.  While shorter than the invitation to the set trailer released this month this video shows some of the actors and show-runners behind the scenes.  Here it is:Welp. Not much there, right? We hope to get some REAL trailers in soon as Game of Thrones winds down. Look for one possibly alongside Behind the Candelabra this Sunday night at 9 in place of...

In Production: EASTBOUND & DOWN Season 4

In Production: EASTBOUND & DOWN Season 4

Hey, Kenny Powers fans! Isn’t it about time to get this ole ballgame under way? That’s right, EASTBOUND AND DOWN is gearing up and it is about time. HBOWatch reported  way back on 07.02.12 that Season Four was a certainty. But, production isn’t getting underway until right after the upcoming Memorial Day weekend. What the hell was taking so long? We hope the time was well spent on writing whip- smart and funny scripts for the fourth and final(?) season. News has been dropped that filming will once again take place in the Wilmington, NC and Myrtle Beach, SC regions now through August. Does that mean we will see Kenny Powers and family...

A Game of Tweets: Exploring the World of Westeros on Twitter

A Game of Tweets: Exploring the World of Westeros on Twitter

Do you wish you knew what all of your favorite Game of Thrones personalities were thinking and doing, every minute of every day? You can actually follow all the (fake) accounts of your beloved, and not so beloved, characters from both the HBO series Game of Thrones, and the book series upon which it was based, A Song of Ice and Fire. Accounts range from serious role players with complex story lines, to parody accounts, some of which are extremely entertaining. For those who prefer to tweet in languages other than English, there is also a huge group of Spanish role players, and we’re seeing new role play accounts starting to appear in...

First Boardwalk Empire Season 4 Teaser Trailer

First Boardwalk Empire Season 4 Teaser Trailer

“Only Kings understand each other…”HBO released the first ever Boardwalk Empire season 4 trailer this evening before this week’s episode of Game of Thrones.  The teaser actually shows a bit more than HBO usually gives on a first time teaser such as this one so give it a watch.  Though it is short coming in at under 30 seconds there are some chilling shots that major fans will surely enjoy. Take a look:This confirms the FALL release date that we’ve predicted all along on our schedule page.  We’ll keep you up to date as far as an exact premiere slot.  Until then, feel free to watch this over and over...

VICE: Extended – Additional Footage I

VICE: Extended – Additional Footage I

Since we cannot get enough of VICE here at HBOWatch we thought we should just punch you in the face with some more of it. There is actually additional footage to each episode that has aired so far; it is packaged as VICE – Extended. Instead of a super post of video clips at the end of the season we are going to dole a few out at a time over a total of three posts. Here is a look at the extra footage for the first four (4) episodes. Episode One has one from Assassination Nation with Ryan Duffy. In the Philippines Ryan shows us more of the Backyard Gunshop.They make it look so easy just whipping up a handgun out of scrap. Here are links...

Game of Thrones Producer Says Series May Last Seven Seasons

Game of Thrones Producer Says Series May Last Seven Seasons

Last week, Game of Thrones took home the BAFTA Audience Award. However, that’s not the only news from the night. ‘Thrones Producer Frank Doelger spoke to Radio Times after the awards show and had some interesting things to say about the future of HBO’s hit series: “[The number of series] is being discussed as we speak. The third season was the first half of book three, season four will be the second part of book three. George RR Martin has written books four and five; six and seven are pending.”   “I would hope that, if we all survive, and if the audience stays with us we’ll probably get through...
