Apr 26, 2016

Its that time of year again, the time in which we all fall in love with characters, and possibilities only to see them ripped away from us in a brutal show of callousness. If you hadn’t...

Apr 24, 2016

Girls Season Five Finale: “I Love You Baby”

Apr 19, 2016

The end of this season of Girls brings about the stunning hope that maybe, just maybe, they might be growing up.  For me, I’ve always considered adulthood to be something I do, not...

HBO Miniseries: OLIVE KITTRIDGE to Debut Later this Year

HBO has not forgotten its long-form films or miniseries and neither has HBOWatch. MILDRED PIERCE and PARADE’S END were the last two minis to air and in the future is MASTERS OF THE AIR and the MLK piece. But coming up yet this year is the HBO Miniseries: OLIVE KITTRIDGE. There are few images from the work at this point besides some casting shots, like Bill Murray (pictured), and location shots.  Just as a reminder to HBO aficionados here is the official Press Release about the project. FRANCES MCDORMAND AND RICHARD JENKINS STAR IN OLIVE KITTERIDGE, A FILM BY LISA CHOLODENKO; AN HBO MINISERIES PRESENTATION OF A PLAYTONE PRODUCTION IN...

Movie Review: The Great Gatsby

Movie Review: The Great Gatsby

Baz Luhrmann is famous for his fantastical set and costume design. Satine dazzled us in the glitzy Moulin Rouge and two star crossed lovers broke hearts in the mesmerising Romeo and Juliet. His turn at directing F. Scott Fitzgerald’s classic American novel feels like his pièce-de-résistance as he goes all out to conjure up something so breath-takingly extravagant it will leave you wishing you were around in the 1920’s to soak it all up for real, although I don’t think the music would be provided by Jay-Z. Leonardo Di Caprio plays the elusive Jay Gatsby with every ounce of charm he emulates in the novel. He is handsome, rich and able...

“Catch the Throne: The Mixtape” Review

“Catch the Throne: The Mixtape” Review

Surprisingly enough, the good folks over at HBO decided to take their Game of Thrones marketing campaign one notch higher this year by having a group of rappers compose songs while sampling beats from the Game of Thrones score to create some pretty slick raps. Did you have the same initial reaction that I did? As in, “Huh? Rap and Game of Thrones? Isn’t that a little bit like oil and vinegar?” Yes, I admit: at first I was skeptical. I love all the music that Ramin Djawadi has produced. Now, take his music and couple it with some of rap’s best known performers and writers and what do you get? A Game of Thrones inspired rap album,...

Bruce Springsteen HBO Special to Debut 04.04.

Bruce Springsteen HBO Special to Debut 04.04.

This upcoming film came from nowhere but we’ll take it! BRUCE SPRINGSTEEN: HIGH HOPES debuts 04.04 at 9:30pm ET. Is it an HBO Special or a documentary? The video clip we show you here calls it an HBO Special while the Press Release, portions also below, calls it a documentary. Or is it an infomercial? Whatever it is it appears on HBO and showcases The Boss’s latest album “High Hopes” which released in January ’14.      Press Release – BRUCE SPRINGSTEEN’S HIGH HOPES, chronicling the making of his 18th studio album, will debut FRIDAY, APRIL 4 (9:30-10:00 p.m. ET/PT), exclusively on HBO. The half-hour documentary by...

Game of Thrones – The Politics of Power: A Look Back at Season 3

UPDATE: Here it is! Unfortunately there’s no new footage, but you can check out the latest trailer for that. Enjoy! On Tuesday March 11th at 8:30pm, HBO will air a half-hour long Game of Thrones special to prepare us all for season 4. Titled “The Politics of Power: A Look Back at Season 3”, it promises to refresh our memories as to where our favorite characters were at the end of the previous season, as well as tease us a bit on where their respective journeys may take them this time around. Here’s a preview: Game of Thrones returns on April 6th. Be...

Anna Paquin: Academy Award Winning Actress

Anna Paquin: Academy Award Winning Actress

Today We Learned… Here at HBOWatch we like to think of ourselves as leading experts on the shows, actors, directors and writers who create the programs we all love and enjoy.  But this nugget took this editor by suprise today.  I was doing a bit of research and came across this story about True Blood’s Sookie Stackhouse aka Anna Paquin. Anna began her career as a child actress in 1991.  Director Jane Campion was looking for a young girl to star in The Piano, an eventual award winning film in 1994.  Paquin’s sister discovered an ad in the newspaper looking for someone to play the role who went herself to check it out....

DOLL & EM: Behind The Scenes

DOLL & EM: Behind The Scenes

While we are on a roll with video clips we offer a look at another entry in what I call an “HBO comedy experiment.”  The limited comedy series DOLL & EM is fast approaching.  It premieres on March 19, so if you are interested don’t look for it on a Sunday because it runs on Wednesdays instead.  As we have reported before the show is a British import that came to HBO out of the blue so not a lot of marketing has occurred. Maybe that is why HBO now offers a “Behind The Scenes” segment. It doesn’t speak at length about the series because, I think, the plot is rather simple to get. It does tell of the friendship behind the...

HBO Films: THE NORMAL HEART Tease

HBO Films: THE NORMAL HEART Tease

The last two HBO Films presentations we saw were in November and October of last year; they were MIKE TYSON: THE UNDISPUTED TRUTH and MUHAMMAD ALI’S GREATEST FIGHT respectively. The next film under that banner doesn’t come our way until this May – 05.25 to be exact. It is THE NORMAL HEART and HBOWatch has been tracking it through its development and production. One such definitive post was  What We Know About… from 10.29.13.  Now HBO is ready to ramp up the marketing for the Larry Kramer play brought to film. Here is a 46 second look, and the first footage we have seen, from Ryan Murphy’s HBO Films: THE NORMAL HEART. If...

Looking Season 1 Finale Review

Looking Season 1 Finale Review

In the season finale, we see our three friends triumph and struggle through personal and professional events. I would also like to add how the Golden Girls plays a theme into this episode and I think it ties in nicely. (I loved the Golden Girls as a teenager) Agustin and Frank’s relationship is officially over. Frank does not hold back when he tells Agustin that he is acting like a ‘spoiled bored rich kid” and that his art was “mediocre at best.” The truth hurts but in Agustin’s case, it is downright acerbic. It’s over, there’s nothing more Agustin can do and Frank wants the key left under the mat. The end. Patrick, after...

Girls Season 3 Episode 10: Role Play

Girls Season 3 Episode 10: Role Play

This weeks episode of Girls leaves behind dead Nana Flo and tackles the much more important issue of Adam and Hannah’s relationship. Hannah was warned in previous episodes by a small handful of people that Adam would become a nightmare since being cast in a Broadway play. Up until now, Hannah had brushed off such nonsense, knowing full well that Adam wouldn’t be so predictable, alas, it would see the inevitable has happened.  He isn’t exactly being a nightmare per say, but their relationship is most definitely strained. It begins as Hannah gets absolutely annihilated at a bar with her friends from work, she very...

A DEADWOOD Marathon!

A DEADWOOD Marathon!

HBO wants to draw our attention to the fact that DEADWOOD is having an anniversary! The Emmy Award winning series began on March 21, 2004 and ran for three 12-episode seasons. To mark the 10th anniversary of its debut a marathon of the series will air on two of HBO’s platforms. HBO Zone – If you have HBO Zone, which I gather not everyone does have as a part of their HBO package, than you can watch or record all 36 episodes back-to-back beginning Saturday, 03.15  at 10:00am ET and concluding Sunday, 03.16 at 10:oopm.  HBO Signature – This channel will play out the series on a slower pace, but won’t start its run of the series until...

TRUE DETECTIVE: Season One Finale Review

TRUE DETECTIVE: Season One Finale Review

It is finally upon us. The Season One Finale of TRUE DETECTIVE completes the convoluted case for Martin Hart and Rust Cohle. It was gripping, thought-provoking and tense and we wouldn’t have wanted it any other way. It is going to be a bit hard to write this post because it represents a wrapping up of one hell of a first season with two complex and profound characters and one chilling case. There is no way I can sum it up to satisfy everyone. I know that there have been some wild speculations of how this show could have played out. I personally ignored those forums that expounded on them, but did read some articles along the way that...
