  1. The legendary, banned BBC Halloween telefilm Ghostwatch - among the first examples of found footage horror - is still so good.

  2. Love, Gilda:

      They really should have ditched that music, but otherwise it's a powerful trailer. It's nice to know that so many more later SNL players still adore her as I think most people no longer know who she is.

  3. I thought people were trolling when they said Mary Kate Olsen married Olivier Sarkozy. WTF???

      I know I shouldn't judge, but...oh, Lord, that is just so wrong.

       

  4. Leave it to Candie to reignite the mystery of Twin Peaks at Comicon.

  5. Vulture plays a dangerous game trying to go into the @DRW50 business: http://www.vulture.com/2018/07/guide-fleetwood-mac-before-fleetwood-mac.html

      Thanks for finding that. It was a good read, aside from the extended Bob Welch bashing at the end. The Christine McVie praise is always welcome.

  6. Nice:

      LOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOL

  7. Eden Riegel popping up in the One Day at a Time Season 1 finale just makes me bitter all over again that AMC and OLTL 2.0 weren't on Netflix where they belonged with better management.

      Both shows would be thriving today. Tragic they were just a hair too early for mainstream streaming.

  8. The great Joe Bob Briggs' 24 hour horror marathon temporarily crashed streaming service Shudder and got Hellraiser trending on Twitter. Joe Bob has not missed a beat since TNT's Monstervision. Hopefully this ensures a permanent slot for him on Shudder soon.

      And for soap fans: One of the marathon's highlights, cult classic Sleepaway Camp, features the original(?) Tad Gardner Martin, John Dunn, fresh off AMC and meeting a gruesome fate. Also, Jane Krakowski just pre-SFT was slated to play the teen villain but backed out over content.

      Good for Joe Bob Briggs!!

  9. Of course 2018's latest plot twist is a massive black sarcophagus that has never been opened

  10. Pretty much lost my mind watching summer 2000 ATWT and seeing a young David Harbour with Hal Munson.

  11. Flashback Tuesday: The 2013 profanity epidemic of Llanview (and Pine Valley) 

     

     

  12. As happy as I am that Netflix is reviving Carmen Sandiego as an educational show for a new generation of children, nothing will beat the PBS game show starring SON's own Lynne Thigpen. I watched her everyday afterschool.

      This is where I first saw Lynne Thigpen, along with Square One. I just loved her on those shows.

      I had no idea SNL did this. It's a fairly lame bit but Sasheer Zamata's Chief is pretty on point and the ludicrous attention to detail (along with the trip destination and voice-overs about the kids) is the funniest part.

      DRW50

      I wonder how many SNL viewers even knew what that was. They didn't seem all that enthused (then again it is SNL..). I guess this was after SNL kept trying to write her as a voice of reason and moral conscience. 

  13. A few things on watching The Hand that Rocks the Cradle again after 25 years:

     

    1. Annabella Sciorra's rise in the late '80s/early '90s was major and for years I wondered what happened to it - now we know she chose to remove herself from stardom following her rape by Harvey Weinstein. Tragic.

    2. Even on the big screen, Julianne Moore had the knack very early.

    3. Rebecca De Mornay deserved a bigger career. She was always more versatile than her looks allowed - see her in the cult classic Runaway Train in the mid-80s where she plays a hardbitten railway worker of all things. She's great and I guess I'm glad Jessica Jones at least gave her a showcase, but she still deserves more.

      I saw a few old HBO promos for some movie she did for them in the late '80s where she was one of the pilots who had to nuke the USSR. I haven't ever seen the movie...I do wonder if she feels like she got more interesting roles before Hand That Rocks the Cradle.

    2. Vee

      It's not a bad movie! She's good in it as well - same grit as Runaway Train. "By Dawn's Early Light".

    3. Khan

      Khan

      Heck, she made even "Feds" watchable!

  14. It's a little surreal to realize Westworld doesn't resume filming until a year from now - and Twin Peaks could beat it back to the air.

    1. Vee

      Vee

      It sure felt like that. I don't think it's the most amazing show on earth and I think Season 2 in particular was unnecessarily convoluted, but I do enjoy it for what it is which is a pretty solid scifi show - not Kubrick's 2001. The leads are all great.

    2. Juliajms

      Juliajms

      Yes, I think it's the cast that keeps me coming back.  There are so many good actors and solid character moments involved in this project.  The setting is also gorgeous.  I'll definitely come back for season three, even though the plot is unsatisfying. I'm not even sure what I'm hoping to happen. They killed off (sort of) so many of the characters I liked in this last episode.

      I'm pretty sure most of the 'dead' will be back. Anyone who crossed over into the other world, maybe not.

  15. Nice to see Anita Baker honored tonight.

  16. Not her biggest fan after her last few years but Nancy Lee Grahn publicly leaving William deVry hanging out to dry over their crazy fans really amuses me. She's clearly been over their pairing since that whole dagger thing but this is just the capper.

    1. ChitHappens

      ChitHappens

      I don't blame Nancy for not addressing those wackos.  Explain once and you are forever explaining.  DeVry did imply that perhaps Nancy didn't want the pairing any longer (or at least that's how I interpreted it).  

    2. Vee

      Vee

      She clearly hasn't since Julian tried to slit Alexis' throat with the dagger that killed her mother(!!). She had been lukewarm at best in recent interviews. Now this seems quite clear.

    3. Juliajms

      Juliajms

      I agree with NLG. They should go with Kim and Julian if they insist on keeping Julian around, but I like Kim so I want better for her too.  GH really loves to demean it's women.

  17. Johnny Depp is making late stage Brando look dignified: https://www.rollingstone.com/movies/features/johnny-depp-lawsuit-marriage-w521671

      I read that earlier today. I'm torn between feeling bad for him and realizing that he spends a lot more money on wine every year than most Americans make. He needs to sell some of his property ASAP and realize that he is not a billionaire.

  18. I wonder if Melody Thomas Scott ever gets questions about her early and storied career in genre film (The Fury, Piranha, The Beguiled, etc).

  19. Today in news I never thought I'd hear: Bionic Woman Lindsay Wagner(!!) co-stars in video game legend Hideo Kojima's new game along with Norman Reedus, Mads Mikkelsen and Lea Seydoux. Sure, why not? https://www.hollywoodreporter.com/heat-vision/death-stranding-hideo-kojima-casting-lea-seydoux-lindsay-wagner-1119548

      Lindsay Wagner and Lynda Carter both seem like ladies who will sign on to do any project and have tons of fun doing it.

  20. Just stumbled upon the late, great Karen Black's last interview on YouTube. Do yourself a favor: Don't.

  21. As kind as it is of them to include the very ill Val Kilmer in the unnecessary Top Gun sequel, I'll only be impressed if someone calls Kelly McGillis.

    1. Khan

      Khan

      I'll be impressed if they can actually FIND Kelly McGillis.  (Seriously, where has she been keeping herself these days?)

  22. Goodbye to The Americans, one of the best, most understated and underrated long-form dramas I've seen on television, and kudos to Laurie Holden for being its last mystery.

  23. Throb!!

    1. Vee

      Vee

      "Throb" is on the janet. album from 1993. It was released 25 years ago. Janet performed it at the Billboards in the video above.

    2. Taoboi

      As in an official video and the whole thing that comes with that a la a single. Other than this...the only performance of it to this day that I've seen was the one she did on SNL when Heather Locklear hosted. In high school. 

    3. Vee

      Vee

      It's been performed live quite a bit on multiple tours. And it was released on a major album. That's what makes it a released track. Unreleased means literally unreleased to the public at all, not never promoted as a single with a music video. If that were the case half of every musician's catalog would be unreleased.
