Movie Review: That Awkward Moment

Nov 21, 2014

What I most came away from this movie with was that this film was a guy’s film trying to pass itself off as a girl’s film. Not saying movies are necessarily gender oriented, but you...

HBO Documentary Film: 50 CHILDREN: THE RESCUE MISSION OF MR. & MRS. KRAUS

HBO Documentary Film: 50 CHILDREN: THE RESCUE MISSION OF MR. & MRS. KRAUS

Overview: 50 CHILDREN: THE RESCUE MISSION OF MR. AND MRS. KRAUS tells the dramatic, previously untold story of Gilbert and Eleanor Kraus, a Jewish couple from Philadelphia who followed their conscience, traveling to Nazi-controlled Vienna in spring 1939 to save a group of children. Amidst the impending horrors of the Holocaust, they put themselves in harm’s way to bring what would become the single largest-known group of children allowed into the U.S. during that time. What got this story to be told by filmmaker Steven Pressman was his relationship with the Kraus’s granddaughter Liz Perle. She is his wife and he uses her on camera to...

I Stand With King Joffrey Baratheon

I Stand With King Joffrey Baratheon

Game of Thrones fans love to hate King — emphasis on the King — Joffrey Baratheon (Jack Gleeson). Joffrey, or Joff as I like to call him is 15, a product of incest, unpredictable and one of the best villains on television currently. Gleeson is doing something right when he can enrage millions of fans with one smirk. And oh boy do people love to complain about him. Type “Joffery” in Twitter during an episode of Game of Throne and the moment he steps on screen you will see many creative writing majors putting their degree to use explaining  their dislike.  But, there is a reason behind his smirk and it can easily be...

Girls without Charlie: What Happens Now?!

Girls without Charlie: What Happens Now?!

Jacob Klein broke the news on HBOWatch of Christopher Abbot’s departure yesterday with  Christopher Abbot (Charlie) Quits Girls Season 3.  Considering Charlie and Marnie were on a path at the end of the second season, destined to bring growth to both characters this was surprising news to fans of the show.  With the abruptness of the news and the filming of the third season beginning this month, what does this mean for Marnie and the rest of the characters of GIRLS?  Is this a good opportunity for the show to bring focus back to the girls, or is the departure of Charlie a loss for the series and particularly, the character of...

Game of Thrones Season 3 Review: Episode 2 – Dark Wings, Dark Words

Game of Thrones Season 3 Review: Episode 2 – Dark Wings, Dark Words

After somehow managing to wait a whole week, we were finally able to return to Westeros and experience more of what the third season of Game of Thrones has to offer. After multiple viewings, I can safely say that Dark Wings, Dark Words improves on the stellar premiere, and the languid pace quickens somewhat. All in all, I really enjoyed this episode, and was delighted to see a whole host of highly anticipated new characters come alive on screen. First things first; I had been eagerly anticipating Catelyn’s monologue ever since reading that the scene in question was akin to character assassination. In my opinion, Catelyn is one of the most...

VICE Series Premiere Review: It Punches You In The Face!

VICE Series Premiere Review: It Punches You In The Face!

Overview: I have been waiting in anticipation for this series to begin. It is a uniquely different kind of programming for HBO but if you watch the documentaries that HBO airs you will understand how this show fits into the premium channels schedule. This is hard-hitting journalism at its best. Since I was aware of VICE coming to HBO I have read its site content and watched bits on its YouTube channel. I am totally comfortable and prepared for the tone, approach and style this show will take. We have given you commentary and trailers to get you excited and ready for VICE. Well, are you? Expectations:  Usually, when I’m going to review...

First Full Trailer: FAMILY TREE

Family Tree seemed to come out of nowhere.  The new HBO comedy was just a glint in Christopher Guest’s (Spinal Tap, The Princess Bride) eye just months ago and now we’re treated with the first full trailer for the program.  Last week we got our first glimpse with the teaser trailer but this newest entry gives us much more.  Look for it tonight alongside HBO’s new series: VICE starting at 11P just after Bill Maher. UPDATE: Premiere/Air-date confirmed: The show starts May 12th, 2013 so get ready for more HBO comedy in your...

Game of Thrones Funko Dolls: Round Two!

Game of Thrones Funko Dolls: Round Two!

When we first reviewed Funko’s vinyl action figures last year the number one question from our readers  was: “Where is my favorite charachter?!”  Of course the first round included the legendary Ned Stark, Tyrion Lannister and The Mother of Dragons but we understand:  your bookshelf or desk just isn’t complete unless you COLLECT THEM ALL!  But this latest round of figurines features even more fan favorites such as Jon Snow as well as Robb and Arya Stark! Aren’t they adorable?  The toys are made of pliable plastic and are painted with bright colors.  Some of them are more detailed than others though....

Christopher Abbot (Charlie) Quits Girls Season 3

Christopher Abbot (Charlie) Quits Girls Season 3

In an apparent creative dispute with show creator Lena Dunham, Christopher Abbot is leaving HBO’s GIRLS.  The series has just begun filming it’s third season in Brooklyn, NYC this month and reportedly Christopher (Charlie) “didn’t like the direction the show was going in”.  We’re not sure what that means exactly but here is the statement from Christopher’s agent: “[Chris] is grateful for the experience of collaborating with Lena, Judd [Apatow], and the entire ‘Girls’ cast and crew, but right now he’s working on numerous other projects and has decided not to return to the...

The Good, The Bad and the Ugly of S3:E1 – ‘Valar Dohaeris’

The Good, The Bad and the Ugly of S3:E1 – ‘Valar Dohaeris’

On Sunday we returned to Westeros for the premiere of the third season of Game of Thrones. My first impression of the episode 1 was one of disappointment. Slow to start, it never really seemed to take off, never really delivering the punch that one would expect from a season premiere. After another viewing or two, really analyzing the episode, I think there were some definite good points that deserve recognition. Sadly, there are also some frustrating moments and even some incredibly unnecessary scenes thrown into the mix. I’ve included some opinions from twitter and tumblr to support the good, the bad and the ugly of Season 3, episode...

TRUE BLOOD’s First Pilot Choice for Tara

TRUE BLOOD’s First Pilot Choice for Tara

I just thought I’d post something fun today; you know no news or development talk. Thanks to Blastr.com I stumbled across a scene from the originally shot pilot of TRUE BLOOD. The actress is Brooke Kerr, who I guess, played a popular character on the NBC soap Passions. She played Tara Thornton in the pilot episode. Now, don’t get confused we know Rutina Wesley has played that character for all five seasons of the show. A pilot episode must have been shot in order to show HBO executives something before they committed to TRUE BLOOD as a series. HBO must have balked on what they saw and requested a retooling before the green light was...
