  • Has Game of Thrones gone too far? Scene involving group of prostitutes at start of new series..

    UK Daily Mail ^ | April 9, 2014 | Laura Cox
    A prince strips a posing group of prostitutes naked one by one as he selects a companion for the night. It sounds like a scene from a porn film, but this was the latest episode of the epic fantasy drama Game of Thrones, based on the novels of George R R Martin. The start of the gory series’ fourth season on Monday even managed to shock its own fans. ..................................................... Campaigners warned it could lead to young people being ‘desensitised’ to content once considered shocking and being influenced by the behaviour they displayed.

    Breitbart - Big Hollywood ^ | 24 Mar 2014, 1:55 PM PDT | John Nolte
    Deadline Hollywood puts the best spin they can on the disastrous season finale ratings for HBO's impossibly low-rated series "Girls." Deadline calls the a dismal 670,000 viewers "steady." Yeah, "steady" in the same way the Titanic steadily sank. After three airings Sunday night, "Girls" averaged only a million viewers. If you are looking for a reference point, the season finale of "True Detective" averaged 11 million viewers. Not beholden to ratings, and obviously eager to not the pop the bubble of a small group of elite urban provincials who have spent three years trying to convince themselves "Girls" is not...

    Maher began the monologue by declaring that America is “stupid” because 60 percent of the country reportedly believes the tale of Noah’s ark is literally true. He went on to slam the film Noah as “floating giraffe cr**,” but said it “must be doing something right” since it’s been condemned by both Muslims and Christians. And the fact that it might lose a lot of studio money, he joked, “may put it in hot water with the Jews too.”

    Apparently unretouched photographs of Lena Dunham's Vogue shoot have revealed exactly how much the fashion glossy airbrushed the star. The pre-Photoshop images, acquired by Jezebel today, show how the Girls creator's jawline has been narrowed, her waistline slimmed and even smile lines removed. An image of the 27-year-old star seated on the edge of a bathtub in a Dolce & Gabbana dress demonstrates these changes to greatest effect.

    Sarah Silverman celebrated Christmas in her usual mode: mocking Christians, and religion in general. On Twitter, she wrote “Happy Birthday, Jesus! I'm sorry [you] were murdered by people afraid of new ideas!” Her last HBO special in 2002 was even mockingly titled “Jesus Is Magic.” Her new special was called “We Are Miracles.” Once again in the new show, she made fun of the death of Jesus, as a Jew: “You’re welcome. If we hadn’t killed him, he wouldn’t even be famous.”

    During the “Overtime” online edition of HBO’s Real Time, host Bill Maher posited that President Obama moderates his political positions out of fear of being assassinated, leading to a panel-wide battle over whether Americans are “subconsciously racist” against the president. While lamenting with Oliver Stone about the short political career of John F. Kennedy, Maher suggested that bold leaders like JFK “always seem to, at the end of the day, get cut out of the picture, violently or otherwise. And maybe that is why Barack Obama is more of a centrist than we want him to be?” “You think that?”

    Though he had no idea what it was, the annual “Bush Center Warrior 100K” mountain bike ride, which took place over the Memorial Day weekend, upset Bill Maher. “I guess they walked or ran or something on their prosthetic limbs,” Maher sneered about George W. Bush’s ride around his Texas ranch with 20 servicemen, “and I found this to be nauseating. I mean, first he sends them off to war to get their limbs blown off and then he has them over for a barbecue.” Maher then equated the former President with Ariel Castro, the kidnaper who held captive multiple...

    A tepid, superficial and unsatisfying movie by HBO has brought the spectacle of Wladziu Valentino Liberace -- better known to the world simply as pianist-showman extraordinaire Liberace – back into America's living rooms and consciousness more than 25 years after his death from AIDS complications. Liberace led as fascinating and tragic a life as you could imagine, one that deserved a deeper, more comprehensive treatment than what director Steven Soderbergh served up Sunday night. Aside from the absurdities of casting the very homely Michael Douglas as the superstar pianist (and the 42-year-old Matt Damon as his “teenaged” lover, Scott Thorson),...

    Pope Benedict XVI shocked the world on Monday morning by announcing he would resign at the end of February. For Catholics, there was sorrow and there was gratitude for a Holy Father who taught with such distinction and worked with such care to safeguard the church's theological traditions. But there are those people who hate the Catholic Church, and they are ecstatic. Take documentary filmmaker Alex Gibney, a man who clearly thinks he is holier than the Pope. He told the Daily Beast that Benedict is a "criminal." This helps explain why he's made a documentary for HBO, the...

The episode was the subject of a series of high-profile articles by the New York Times’ Laurie Goodstein during Lent of...

As a bonus, Tapper also provides an hilarious takedown of the increasingly annoying SorkinSpeak, the bizzare shorthand manner in which his characters communicate with each other. So take it away, Jake: “The Newsroom,” which debuts June 24 on HBO, is sadly disappointing. There’s much to criticize in the media—and TV news in particular. But though “The Newsroom” intends to lecture its viewers on the...

    Politicians are calling for a boycott of HBO's fantasy series Game of Thrones after the creator's 'despicable' decision to include former President George W. Bush's severed head in several scenes. In the tenth episode of the first season, Mr Bush's decapitated head is seen impaled on a wooden spike, covered in filthy long hair and slathered in dirt. Show creators David Benioff and D.B. Weiss, who noted the appearance in the series' DVD commentary, insist it wasn't a political statement - just a prop. But the image has provoked outrage among some Republican politicians.

    Politicians are calling for a boycott of HBO's fantasy series Game of Thrones because of the creator's 'despicable' decision to include former President George W. Bush's severed head in several scenes. In the tenth episode of the first season, Mr Bush's decapitated head is barely recognizable impaled on a wooden spike, covered in filthy long hair and slathered in dirt. But show creators David Benioff and D.B. Weiss, who noted the appearance in the series' DVD commentary, insist it wasn't a political statement - just a prop. The finale of the first season of Game of Thrones, Fire and Blood,...

    LAS VEGAS -- Timothy Bradley promised to shock, though the biggest shock in his fight with Manny Pacquiao came from the judges' scorecards. In a fight Pacquiao seemed to have in hand, two judges decided otherwise, giving Bradley a split decision Saturday night and ending the Filipino fighter's remarkable seven-year unbeaten run. Promoter Bob Arum fumed, the crowd at the MGM Grand arena booed, and Pacquiao seemed stunned when the decision was announced. Arum said there would be a November rematch, though he blasted the way the decision went down. "I'm going to make a lot of money on the...

    Bill Maher, the largest donor to President Obama's super PAC, called Mormonism a "cult" on his HBO show last night, and said that donating money to that religion doesn't count as charity because it's "bulls---."
  • Bill Maher Curses Out Audience for Not Laughing at Racist Joke

    Bill Maher on Friday cursed out his audience for not laughing at a racist joke about Trayvon Martin and George Zimmerman. When his HBO Real Time attendees fell totally silent after the host said the judge in Florida gave Zimmerman bail under the condition that he only shoot "those kids," Maher raised both middle fingers at the crowd saying, "F--k you...You can get the stick out of your a--. It's just a joke" (video follows with transcript and commentary, serious vulgarity warning):
  • Exclusive: SarahPAC Sends "Undefeated" to Singapore Ambassador Behind "Game Change" Screening

    Earlier this month, the U.S. Embassy in Singapore held a screening of HBO's hyper-partisan, poorly sourced "Game Change" feature as a way to show how the American electoral process works. SarahPAC, former Gov. Sarah Palin's political action committee, decided to provide the Embassy and its staffers with a more instructive, and factual, example of democracy in action. The organization has sent a letter to Ambassador David Adelman, along with a screener of the Palin documentary "The Undefeated." "The Undefeated," the letter says, includes people speaking on the record about a maverick politician who helped changed the way her state ran.
  • What Game Change Could of been (satire...alternative casting)

    Sorry for beating a dead horse. I’ve discussed the Tom Hanks/Hollywood hit piece on Sarah Palin Game Change extensively in two segments. The first was a pre-review called Lies Damned Lies & HBO’s Game Change and the second a post review following the premiere. There are remnants of Game Change circulating on HBO’s airwaves. It pops up from time to time as I’m doing my normal ADD-like channel surfing. Since the movie’s premiere, countless articles were written by some of the best conservatives in the blogosphere. Esteemed film buffs panned the film. Some skipped the HBO premiere and penned thoughts...

    Alexandra Pelosi debuted a video she made for HBO's "Real Time with Bill Maher" last night. The video shows multiple welfare recipients in New York City proclaiming they were at the welfare office to get their "Obama bucks" and that they supported Obama because he "gives me stuff." Pelosi reported that people at the HBO headquarters in New York had said to her "you can't show this" even though just last week the ran a controversial video showing Mississippi voters saying inflammatory things against the president.
