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...

Game of Thrones Soundtrack: Seasons I & II

Game of Thrones Soundtrack: Seasons I & II

Most great works of TV or film usually have an excellent score behind it, and Game of Thrones is no different. While soundtracks frequently serve the purpose of helping to create the mood of a particular scene, the music from Game of Thrones takes the listener on a wild ride through the pages of George R.R. Martin’s novels themselves. From compositions that reflect the personalities of main characters, to themes that represent various locations, the music connects with fans in much the same way the series does. We have to wait until Season Three premieres on March 31 to hear what new music will be incorporated next season. Until then,...

In Production: CRIMINAL JUSTICE, FAMILY TREE & HELLO LADIES and Louis C. K.

In Production: CRIMINAL JUSTICE, FAMILY TREE & HELLO LADIES and Louis C. K.

A few projects are now in production for HBO. Three of them were already featured in “HBO’s Yearender 2012” promo after the words “Coming in 2013. “ The other piece is on a fast track to get something shot. Here is HBOWatch’s observant eye of what’s upcoming on HBO. At this point, however, there are no concrete air dates for any of these works. But, HBOWatch can assure you they are coming soon.   James Gandolfini is before the cameras with CRIMINAL JUSTICE James Gandolfini, of THE SOPRANOS, has been spotted shooting a pilot episode of CRIMINAL JUSTICE in New York City, NY. I reported for HBOWatch in depth on this project...

Treme Season Finale “Tipitina” and Season 4 Predictions

Treme Season Finale “Tipitina” and Season 4 Predictions

I actually watched this episode of Treme and didn’t realize it was the finale until the last 20 minutes.  I sat there wondering why all the storylines were suddenly being wrapped up in a nice little bow for the end of season.  No cliffhangers, no twists, no extending storylines, just quickly running through a little montage.  I don’t know if this is a good thing or a bad thing.  On the good side, we won’t have to spend the time in between seasons pondering “What is going to happen to that person next season?”.  Our minds torturing us everyday running through possible plots for said character....

Girls Season 1 on Blu-Ray: Full Review

Girls Season 1 on Blu-Ray: Full Review

What do you get for the Girl who has everything? Millennials may have discerning tastes these days but so do the folks over at HBO. When you pick up a television series on DVD or Blu-Ray produced by the now 40 year old Home Box Office network you know you’ll be able to please even the most jaded 20-something in your life. HBOWatch is proud to have received the entire first season of Girls on Blu-Ray a week earlier than the street date (December 11th).  With all of the special features on the three-disc set it took us a while to get through all of the goodies.  The following is a bit of a breakdown of some of those features as well as a...

Boardwalk Empire Scribe Dishes on Season 4

Boardwalk Empire Scribe Dishes on Season 4

Terrance Winter sat down with Entertainment Weekly for an interview and recap of season 3 this week after the finale aired. More news-worthy than his wonderful thoughts on this season were his tidbits about the future of Boardwalk Empire. So now that Nucky is back on top, can we expect that gangster focus to continue into season 4? Yes, more than likely. The boardwalk is such a big part of the show, but that ending hints that Nucky might not feel comfortable on the boardwalk in season 4. Is that an accurate interpretation? It’s still his kingdom and his empire, but I think he’s going to be a lot less visible and a lot more...

‘Boardwalk Empire’ S3 / E12 – ‘Margate Sands’

‘Boardwalk Empire’ S3 / E12 – ‘Margate Sands’

Thats a rap. Season 3 is in the books after Sunday’s thrilling season finale, ‘Margate Sands.’ Masseria, Rosetti, White, Capone and Thompson take they’re war to the streets, giving us our first glimpses of all-out warfare in prohibition-era America. The body count boils over as chaos spreads rampant throughout the city, leaving in its wake an episode that was fulfilling in many ways, yet surprisingly dissatisfying in some areas. Margaret is “lost,” Luciano is undone, Rothstein looks to secure his newest investment, Gillian is in a daze, Rosetti has “googly eyes,” Richard Harrow is an absolute...

This Just In: HBO’s Yearender 2012

This Just In: HBO’s Yearender 2012

As I mentioned just a couple of posts ago in WHAT’S ON: HBO SCHEDULE FOR DECEMBER I always look forward to the special promotional footage at the end of the year. HBO just aired on Sunday night 2012′s yearender piece and it was sweet. It clearly highlights quite a few of the key moments of the rapidly closing year. It also, as it always does, offers a sneak peek of what is “Coming in 2013.” You can see it all for yourself but it does give us glimpses of new series VICE, HELLO LADIES and  FAMILY TREE;  the HBO FILMS presentations of BEHIND THE CANDELABRA,  MARY & MARTHA and PHIL SPECTOR plus the...

HBO Releases First Production Video for Game of Thrones Season 3

HBO Releases First Production Video for Game of Thrones Season 3

Who said waiting was easy? I don’t know about you, but i’m getting rather impatient waiting for Game of Thrones to return on March 31. Season Three premiere is now less than four months away and HBO has given us something to wet our appetites with by releasing the first production video for next season. Titled Game of Thrones: In Production, the two-minute feature aired before Boardwalk Empire and includes interviews with cast and crew, as well as first looks at new characters, including Mance Rayder, the Reeds, and Anguy. From the look of it, the next installment of the Game of Thrones series is going to be truly amazing and a...

Check It Out: ENLIGHTENED Season Two Trailer

Check It Out: ENLIGHTENED Season Two Trailer

Remember Amy Jellicoe? She is the conflicted lady played by Laura Dern who is out to empower herself towards a meaningful life and improve the world around her. As Season One of ENLIGHTENED proved that is not an easy task on either front. That 10 episode season had us meet Amy and her mother Helen (played by Dern’s real mom Diane Ladd) who she moved back in with after rehab from a mental breakdown. She also braves going back into her workplace, Abbadon Industries, and seeing old friends, rivals and even an ex-lover Levi( played by Luke Wilson). By season’s end we learned that Levi was somewhat of a wreck himself and that Amy didn’t...

What’s On: HBO Schedule for December

What’s On: HBO Schedule for December

HBO is wrapping up another year of programming. In fact, one of December’s highlights for me on HBO is the interstitial that plays at the end of the month that lets us reflect back on the quality programming we viewed for the year and the tease for what is ahead in the upcoming 365 days. I’m sure we at HBOWatch will post that special advertising when it airs. December is often considered a light month for the premium channel. There are no series that month and the rough R-rated movies don’t dominate the schedule. There might be a smattering of stand-up comedy late in the month or even a re-airing of a concert. Let’s look at, for one...

First Full Length Girls Season 2 Trailer

First Full Length Girls Season 2 Trailer

HBO’s Girls took the world by storm with their premiere series last spring. Since then millennial everywhere have been waiting impatiently for word of the second season. We’ve been given teasers thus far but this morning an HBO representative let us know about a new trailer that will air on Sunday night alongside the Boardwalk Empire Season 3 finale!  They’ve decided to put it out there a bit early this year and without further hullabaloo;  here it is! I didn’t think it was possible but I’m even more excited for season 2 (and this coming from a guy).  Girls Season 2 premieres January 13th.  As always;...
