I don’t like rituals, period. Whether straitlaced (Christian) or darkly purposed (Satanic), I just find them creepy…and off. So while I won’t stand on ceremony, I will watch, with fascination, films that trot out such pageantry. One of my favorites is a two part TV mini-series, The Dark Secret of Harvest Home (1978). Oh, and its horror, but I’m sure you already guessed that.
Originally airing on NBC Monday, January 23rd (in the NBC Monday Night at the Movies slot) and Tuesday the 24th, 1978, Dark Secret was up against the CBS juggernaut of M*A*S*H/One Day at a Time/Lou Grant. But while many were watching Hawkeye, Schneider, et al crack wise, something insidious was brewing over at The Peacock.
Pull out your yellowed copy of TV Guide and let’s have a look shall we?

News this week came in that the final planned Divergent Series movie would be skipping the theaters and go direct to television/DVD. It’s a rare move for such a major studio franchise to make, and it got me to thinking about other movie series that fizzled and did the same. Come inside to check out a history of downward sliding franchises!
If I come off sounding a bit harsh about all this, it’s mostly due to the fact that it’s such a bizarre situation. It’s been awhile since a studio franchise had to dropped down to direct-to-television and it’s not a good thing. Sure, Lionsgate is trying to spin the information that it’s part of a planned way to jumpstart a spin-off TV series...but the reality is this isn’t how they wanted The Divergent Series to end.
It’s a failure, »

It was another night of self-congratulating stars, passionate speeches being interrupted by play-'em-off music ("Ride of the Valkyries"? Really???), and several genuine upsets (Rylance over Stallone; Spotlight over The Revenant) — as well as a scorching Oscars monologue that will go down as one for the ages. There were inspirational and uplifting moments, there were cue-the-sad-trombone gags gone wrong, and then there was Stacey Dash wishing everyone a "Happy Black History month." Here are the 20 best, worst and genuinely Wtf moments from last night's Oscars 2016 broadcast. Here's hoping we see Rock »
Woulda, coulda, shoulda. Leonardo DiCaprio is no stranger to the Academy Awards. In fact, the 41-year-old actor has received a total of five nominations for Best Actor and Best Supporting Actor by the Academy over the years. But he has yet to take an Oscar home. All might change this year: Up for grabs is the Best Actor award for his role in The Revenant. Will 2016 be this actor's lucky year?
Acting since the age of 5 (his first appearances include the TV shows Romper Room and Growing Pains), Leonardo DiCaprio has ranked up quite a career, acting in the second highest grossing film of all time (Titanic), which incidentally won a record-tying eleven awards that year, but none in the Actor categories.
Shortly after making his big screen debut in 1991 in the direct-to-film sci-fi horror Critters 3, Leonardo DiCaprio was nominated Best Supporting Actor for his role in 1993's What's Eating Gilbert Grape, »
