Escape from Tomorrow

With Escape from Tomorrow, one fears the story behind the movie would loom larger than the movie itself. Luckily, that is not the case. After all, it opens with a decapitation on Disney World’s Big Thunder Mountain Railroad roller coaster.

William Friedkin spends a lot of time in his 2013 memoir discussing why Sorcerer didn't click with critics and audiences even though he believes it to be better than his previous film, The Exorcist.

Broadchurch: The Complete First Season

Paranormal Activity: The Marked Ones

Essentially part five in the ridiculously profitable horror franchise, Paranormal Activity: The Marked Ones continues the found-footage conceit of the other films. The difference is instead of the scares taking place in rich white suburbia, they do so in a junky apartment complex on a largely Latino side of Oxnard, Calif.

52 pick-up


KSBI puts its ‘I’ on Oklahoma.

By Rod Lott August 30th, 2011

When KSBI 52 calls itself a local television station, it means it. The channel’s fall lineup abounds with programming that isn’t just locally produced, but promotes local happenings.

KSBI’s new schedule includes:
• “Mind Games,” in which Oklahoma college students compete “in a battle of the brains” for scholarships worth $200,000;
• “High School Football Updates,” with live broadcasts of two to six games every Thursday and Friday night;
• “All About You: After Dark,” a Kealey McIntire-hosted talk show focused on fashion, fitness, health, careers, finance, music and more;
• “Oklahoma Live,” featuring local music, artists, actors and more, hosted by Lyn Hester;
• “OK Sports Wrap,” a sports magazine hosted by Mary Rachel Redman and Abigail Ogle;
• “Rodeo Opry,” shot in Stockyards City, airs some of the state’s greatest country talents;
• “Hollywood Spotlight,” hosted by Dino Lalli; and
• “Dog Talk,” about man’s best friend, hosted by Pat Becker.

A few syndicated programs round out the lineup, such as the game show “Cash Cab,” the long-running sitcom “The King of Queens” and memorable moments from Johnny Carson’s reign on “The Tonight Show.” For more information, visit ksbitv.com or check out the video below. —Rod Lott
