  1. With Michael McDonald a key part of Halloween Kills, the time is now for Debra Wilson to star in Halloween Ends.

      Yes that would be wonderful. Was Michael good in the movie?

      He was alright. The gay couple living in Michael Myers' house was kooky but so were most tertiary characters. It was a bit like Robert Altman's Halloween. Not for everyone but I had fun.

      Which one did Robert Altman do?

  2. Still have not gotten over when Tony Geary left GH pissing on Luke and Laura and some dude on Primetimer said "go home to Amsterdam and smoke your weed dreaming of what might have been" lmao

      After all those years of the soap world bowing & scraping and blowing smoke up his ass!

  3. I have zero experiences with the Housewives franchise and I am not starting now, but as a horror fan I'm tickled to hear Kyle Richards may steal Halloween Kills.

  4. It's always nice to see more critical love for Miami Vice 2006, one of my favorite films of the 2000s. https://www.vulture.com/2021/10/miami-vices-journey-from-misfire-to-masterpiece.html

  5. Kudos to AMC's own Victor Miller, who has won a major appeal in part of the endless lawsuit over the rights to Friday the 13th. 

  6. Ever feel like you're watching a one-man puppet show?

      Well, there's certainly a few strings I wouldn't hesitate to cut.

  7. If y'all know you know on Midnight Mass. I saw the hints and thought they were just homages. As a looooongtime Stephen King fanatic I should've seen it all coming by episode 3!

  8. October (and pre-October) is a good time to finally binge Edge of Night's Mansion of the Damned.

  9. Now Kelly Price is missing. 2021!

      Then apparently her lawyer said she's fine, but her sister said she hasn't heard from her in months and she hasn't been seen in months...I hope everything is OK.

  10. Time to take bets on when/if Lauryn Hill shows up on time for literally any of the Fugees reunion tour.

      I mean, show up at all, though?

      Not even worth wasting money on. She's a complete flake.

  11. It's been long enough! Someone really needs to interview the creatives (EPs, etc) at the two Prospect Park soaps and get dirt on what went down, what they wanted to do had the shows gone forward, etc. We've gotten hints about what would've happened at AMC, but I want more. Where's WOST when you need 'em?

      I completely agree. The fact Agnes Nixon changed head writers of All My Children said there was something happening for season two. Honestly, Ginger Smith was a magical executive producer for All My Children, and would love to see daytime bring her on board.

  12. I can give Days a lot of [!@#$%^&*] but name the last time a soap frontburnered a veteran who is 96 goddamn years old (let alone 76). That's Bill Hayes and that's wild.

      And, I am loving every minute of it. Adding Doug into this possession storyline rehash is exactly what it needed.

      On Thursday and Friday, he and Jackée had the two best lines of recent soap memory, they both made me holler. I am so tickled with this twist, I was not looking forward to another dementia story so soon after Dina. I am excited to see where this goes.

    4. DaytimeFan

      DaytimeFan

      You're absolutely right. DAYS has its issues, but one thing it has really veered away from is sidelining its vets when other shows have been brutal to theirs. Bill is clearly loving this work. 

  13. Elvira returns!

      Nice summary, @Errol.

       

      This is gonna be Eric Braeden gathering all his screenshots of Victor Newman trending tweets before his next contract negotiations.

      Thanks, @DramatistDreamer

      Helps being up late at night for no reason sometimes. LOL.

  15. WHY is Marilyn Manson hanging on Kanye's porch.

  16. RIP to the unforgettable Michael Nader.

  17. May or may not be risking my life for the new Candyman this weekend, as the original is one of my favorite movies. Not for nothing but I have one of the drafts of the script and if it hasn't changed too much (fingers crossed) they're keeping a big secret out of most of the ads.

    1. Taoboi

      Taoboi

      Don't have a draft. However I have had the same debate over the last year since original Candyman was also one of my favorite movies in college. 

  18. Waiting this long to finish the first 3 seasons of Borgen has been worth it - the wait for Season 4 next year(?) will be less excruciating. What a show.

  19. I doubt anyone recalls me discussing a certain lost early 90s movie musical and a certain secret screening last summer, but... if you do, hmu.

  20. Happy 4th. I am spending my day losing my mind bc I am 90% sure this is State Senator Clay Davis of The Wire officiating Angie and Jesse's [!@#$%^&*] wedding! 

     

     

  21. Sophie: A Murder in West Cork is a brief and stark true crime series on Netflix. There's so many true crime minis these days that are a dime a dozen, but this features an unnervingly clear portrait of a very chilling figure.

  22. I'd forgotten just how many soap stars popped up in 54 (including an unrecognizable Sherry Stringfield as Mike Myers' accountant), but I had no idea til tonight that the much-gayer original director's cut (butchered by the Weinsteins but restored recently) had Cameron Mathison's bartender in a committed gay relationship.

  23. Nothing like spending Pride Month watching one of the most reviled and despised queer-centric movies ever made, legendary cinematographer Gordon Willis' first and last directorial effort, Windows, with Talia Shire and Elizabeth Ashley:

      I'd kill for a Talia-Elizabeth commentary track.

    2. DRW50

      DRW50

      That was the original trailer? Well it's much better than what I've seen of the film itself...talk about false advertising. 

  24. Steven Soderbergh tosses out so many films of varying quality that it's easy to both overrate and underrate him, and Meryl Streep phones in her usual popular set so often these days that it can be easy to miss when she's really engaged. But HBO Max's Let Them All Talk is a deceptively meandering sleeper from late last year that deserves more recognition and it is, in many ways, both pure soap and almost Bergman-esque. Candice Bergen should have been nominated.

      Dianne Weist is always such a fascinating actress to me too. I actually have HBO Max, I think, but it's never worked for me - I don't mean in artistic terms, I mean literally I have never gotten it to play anything or let me access the channel...

    2. Vee

      Vee

      That's weird. Try reloading it? And yes, Wiest is having a bit of a renaissance again lately. I always liked her. The film was also largely improvised (from an outline).
