‘Sesame Street’ Is Coming To HBO In 5-Year Deal!!!

by Red Zeppelbon on Aug 13th, 2015

Hey guys, Jana here,

13-sesame-street-hbo.w529.h352.2x

♪♫ Can you tell me how to get, how to get to Sesame Street? ♪♫ The directions to that particular ear-worm’s location is going to take a slight detour from here on out. You can still tune in to PBS for your fix of Big Bird, Cookie Monster and Oscar the Grouch along with a side of the alphabet song, if you’re feeling rusty, but that hit will be available on another unlikely network, as well, HBO.

Hey guys, Jana here,

Game_of_thrones_cast

Occasionally things go so right in my world that it feels as if the collective gods have smiled down on me. HBO is going to offer its own stand-alone streaming service beginning next year! This bit of info…and the pint of Ben & Jerry’s awaiting me after dinner feels like a warm hug at the end of a craptastic day. I have been hoping and praying for a service like this from the premium channel. I’m among the number of people that are living with the cord cut from cable and satellite conglomerates. I don’t have any real problem with the situation, sometimes I miss the live showing of ‘The Walking Dead‘, but in a few hours I’m watching it anyway, I can deal with that. The real problem comes when I want to watch a favorite series without digging through my cabinet of DVD’s or *oh mon Dieu* I don’t have the series, yet.  This has been the exact scenario that led me to the pitiful prayer for an HBO streaming service.

HBO Eyes Stars For ‘True Detective’ Season 2!!!

by Red Zeppelbon on Aug 7th, 2014
Hey everyone, Jana here,
‘True Detective‘ was lauded by critics and fans alike in its first season. Matthew McConaughey and Woody Harrelson have a loyal and already won over group of fans that followed them to the gritty series. Add into that equation fans of HBO’s unparalleled programming and production value and mystery/crime/drama fans and it’s the perfect recipe for success.  ‘True Detective‘ was lauded with Emmy nominations by the truckload. How does HBO compete with itself on such a stellar first season? With an equally star-studded and action packed second season, of course.

Hi, Bryan Here…

Seductive, fearless and outrageous, Marina Abramović has been redefining the meaning of art for nearly 40 years. Using her own body as a vehicle, pushing herself beyond her limits, and at times risking her physical safety, she creates performances that challenge, shock and move. From first-time director Matthew Akers, MARINA ABRAMOVIĆ THE ARTIST IS PRESENT follows “the grandmother of performance art” as she prepares for a major retrospective of her work at Manhattan’s Museum of Modern Art (MoMA) in 2010, highlighted by a new exhibit that is breathtaking in its simplicity: two chairs facing each other, with Abramović sitting in one and audience members taking turns sitting in the other, gazing into each other’s eyes in silence. In true Abramović style, she remains in the chair for seven and a half hours each day – every day the museum is open for three months – without eating, drinking or moving, a feat of mental and physical endurance that is challenging even for a veteran of such performances.

Film Review: ‘The Hate You Give’!

by Gumbercules9000 on Oct 1st, 2018

More than fifty years have passed since the founding of the Black Panthers in 1966: a political organization determined to contest police brutality against African Americans. Although the party officially dismantled in 1982, their fight for civil rights has sadly remained relevant into the new century and their core beliefs continue to inspire social justice. Adapted from the 2017 award-winning novel, ‘The Hate U Give’ is a commanding film that adds to the Black Lives Matter movement and gives another voice to those who have unfairly lost their lives at the hands of men and women in blue. Don’t let the young-adult label fool you, because this engaging movie doesn’t hold back and packs serious ammunition!

Fantastic Fest is one of the events that is pure bliss for any fan of genre cinema. If you love horror, sci-fi, foreign, action, and even adult-oriented movies from the 1970s, then Fantastic Fest is the place to let that freak flag fly high and be with like-minded individuals that truly appreciate the art of movies. All of the madness and fun will take place in Austin, TX starting on September 20th and run for 10 days at the Alamo Drafthouse on South Lamar St. This year, which is the 14th annual festival of Fantastic-ness, captures the essence of the Korean movie scene with a ton of cool films being showcased from Korea, both new and old. This is something you won’t want to miss.

 

 

The first wave of movies has been announced, including the World Premiere of the WWII horror movie called ‘OVERLORD‘ from J.J. Abrams. In addition to that film, Fantastic Fest will host Gareth Evans‘ horror movie ‘APOSTLE‘. Gareth gave us the amazing films ‘THE RAID‘ AND ‘THE RAID 2‘, so you can expect some insane fight scenes and horrific imagery. Alos, a film called ‘THE NIGHT COMES FOR US‘, which stars the badass from those ‘RAID‘ movies will be shown, meaning Iko Uwais will stun us once again with his amazing physical skills. If you were a fan of ‘THE GREASY STRANGLER‘, the director of that movie Jim Hosking has a new film called ‘AN EVENING WITH BEVERLY LUFF LINN‘, which is being described as a David Lynch meets John Waters type of movie. You had me at Greasy Strangler.

 

 

Lastly, there are some vintage films coming through from AGFA (American Genre Film Archive), one of which has peaked my interest from the title alone – ‘MARY JANE’S NOT A VIRGIN ANYMORE‘. I have high hopes for this one. Below is the list of films with cast and crew info, along with a brief synopsis. Enjoy and hope to see you all there.
