December 3rd, 2020 under HBO Max, Movies. [ Comments: none ]

Let’s be honest; we are still at least six months away before we can even think about going into a movie theater again. What are the studios going to do?

Well, Warner Bros announced today that they will be releasing their 2021 movies on both HBO Max and in theaters on the same day.

“After considering all available options and the projected state of moviegoing throughout 2021, we came to the conclusion that this was the best way for WarnerMedia’s motion picture business to navigate the next 12 months,” said Jason Kilar, CEO, WarnerMedia. “More importantly, we are planning to bring consumers 17 remarkable movies throughout the year, giving them the choice and the power to decide how they want to enjoy these films. Our content is extremely valuable, unless it’s sitting on a shelf not being seen by anyone. We believe this approach serves our fans, supports exhibitors and filmmakers, and enhances the HBO Max experience, creating value for all.”

Their 2021 theatrical lineup includes The Little Things, Judas and the Black Messiah, Tom & Jerry, Godzilla vs. Kong, Mortal Kombat, Those Who Wish Me Dead, The Conjuring: The Devil Made Me Do It, In The Heights, Space Jam: A New Legacy, The Suicide Squad, Reminiscence, Malignant, Dune, The Many Saints of Newark, King Richard, Cry Macho and Matrix 4.

Wonder Woman: 1984 will kick things off on December 25th.

This makes a lot of sense. While the small screen is not as good as the big one. However, it is better than none at all. I have a feeling Disney, Viacom, and Universal will follow suit on their streaming platforms Disney+, CBS All Access, and Peacock, respectively.

Due to the coronavirus pandemic, Wonder Woman 1984’s release date has been pushed back several times. With no end in sight for the virus and movie theaters still closed in the United States, Warner Bros decided to release the anticipated sequel in theaters starting December 16th and on HBO Max on Christmas Day.

“IT’S TIME. We’ve all waited a long time for this one to come. I can’t tell you how excited I am for all of you to see this movie. It wasn’t an easy decision and we never thought we’d have to hold onto the release for such a long time but COVID rocked all of our worlds. We feel the movie has never been so relevant and we hope that it’ll bring some joy, hope and love to your hearts. Wonder Woman 1984 is a special one for me and I can only hope it’ll be as special to you too. We’ve put our hearts and souls into it,” Gadot wrote “So.. you can watch it IN THEATERS (they’re doing an amazing job keeping it safe) and you can also watch it on HBOMAX from your homes.
Sending you my love. Please keep safe and wear a mask. Happy holidays to all of us!
Let the light shine in🙅🏻‍♀️💪🏼👊🏼💋✨💫”

WW84 will available for one month on the streaming site at no extra cost.

Ever since Mulan was released on Disney+, I have been saying that they should do this for WW84. I am happy they finally decided to do it.

October 20th, 2020 under HBO Max. [ Comments: none ]


There is no set date for Euphoria’s second season, so HBO is giving us two teaser episodes to hold us over until it does.

The first episode will air on December 6th. The press release describes the special ep as, “In the aftermath of being left by Jules at the train station and relapsing, the first special episode follows Rue (played by Emmy®-winner Zendaya) as she celebrates Christmas.”

They will announce the second soon.


Haute Dog is the hautest show of the year!
September 23rd, 2020 under HBO Max. [ Comments: none ]

We have seen reality competition grooming shows that have focused on those who walk on two legs. Tomorrow, we will see one that is dedicated to the ones who walk all fours. Haute Dog is about giving man’s best friend a whole new look. They will go from ruff to arfmazing right before our eyes.

On each episode of the HBO Max series, three groomers will compete in two rounds to give an average pooch an extreme makeover from nose to tail. At the end of the second round, the winner goes home with the barktastic prize of $10,000. They can buy a lot of dog bones to keep their clients calm when they get back home.

What more could we ask for to bring some much needed joy into our lives? Even my cat thinks it looks purrfect.

Subscribe to HBO Max today because you don’t want to miss a second of Haute Dog. That is because each second is like 8 seconds in a dog’s life, and that is a lot.


West Wing gets a special benefit episode on HBO Max

While we are still waiting for the Friends unscripted reunion to happen on HBO Max, the streaming service announced that they are staging another reunion. The cast of West Wing will reunite to reenact the Hartsfield’s Landing episode.

The 2002 episode is described as, “Bartlet engages both Sam and Toby in intricate chess matches that mirror the wily game of brinkmanship that Bartlet is playing with the Chinese, who are conducting war games in the Taiwan Strait.”

Aaron Sorkin, who created the legendary series, will direct Rob Lowe, Dulé Hill, Allison Janney, Janel Moloney, Richard Schiff, Bradley Whitford, and Martin Sheen. They will film it over a few days as the actors perform the script at the Orpheum Theatre in Downtown Los Angeles in early October.

The press release does not say when it will start streaming, but it will be before the election. That is because the performance is benefitting Michelle Obama’s When We All Vote. The nonprofit wants to inspire increased voting participation.

I would not be surprised that if this does well, the series we might get a West Wing revival. One of them could be the President of the United States now. Who do you think would have the job?
