We've Got Mother Issues! - "Mother!" and HBO's New Series "The Deuce."

We've Got Mother Issues! - "Mother!" and HBO's New Series "The Deuce."

"It" was HUGE last weekend and it seems people are finally going back to theaters. And it seems that what they want to see is scary movies. Since "Mother!" opens this week and is also a scary movie it would seem they'll be lining up to check out this latest offering from director Darren Aronofsky which stars Jennifer Lawrence and Javier Bardem. So why is Paramount making it so difficult for critics to see it? Luckily HBO isn't worried about critics and we take on "The Deuce" which is produced by and stars Maggie Gyllenhaal and James Franco. It's set in New York's Times Square district in the 1970s back when it was seedy and full of drug dealers, prostitutes and  o theaters. Nowadays it's all Disney-ized and the only person who'll grope you is dressed in an Elmo suit. Neil looks back at the old days and we also give our impressions of the new series. It's all right here and it's no horror show.
