Great Moments in Horror Actressing: Margot Kidder

"This genre gives actresses some really juicy lines and roles,but denies them the acclaim that comes from more 'serious' roles.Kidder was a gifted actress who was indelible in a few films."-Lady Edith

"She won a Genie for it - because Canadians have great taste!"-Mike in Canada

NYFF: Elisabeth Moss's Primal Scream in "Her Smell"

Jason Adamsreporting on the New York Film Festival which kicks off Friday

OnThe Handmaid's TaleElisabeth Moss is all internalized feminist rage - a sublimated sneer,her Offred says one thing ("Under His eye"),but her eyes,the curl of her mouth,(and also her voice-over) say quite another.But what of her smell?Oh no,Handmaids don't get to stink.They are clean and holy vessels,scrubbed raw of female afflictions.Rock Stars,on the other hand...the real world ain't Gilead (not quite yet anyway) and we're still gonna scream and stink and scream.And Alex Ross Perry'sHer Smellscreams.Primal screams.This is the rage we've been waiting for...

/i09Jeff Goldblum riffing on the meaning of "Ragnarok"- I was personally alarmed to see this whole story this morning because I feel like I knew all this classic mythology stuff when I was in diapers and I KNOW we learned some of it in school.Is mythology not taught anymore?Weird cause kids tend to love it (since there are superpowers,monsters,etcetera)
Jezebela fine interview with famous primatologist Jane Goodall about her work,the new documentary about her,and climate change

AV ClubCarla Gugino and Bruce Greenwood on filmingGerald's Game,another Stephen King adaptation that people are actually liking (what is happening?)
Coming SoonDirector Taiki Waititi (What We Do in the Shadows,Thor Ragnarok) is very coy about whether or not he'll direct the long gestating live action remake of anime classicAkirabut if he does,he won't be casting non-Asians.Soifthey must make this movie,let's hope he gets the job.

Five Lessons Learned from Valerian

By Spencer Coile

AlthoughValerian and the City of a Thousand Planetsis not particularly good (seeDan's review),it is at least somewhat fascinating.Luc Besson's world-building is admirable if bloated,and there is definitely a lot of thought behind the action.It would be easy to detail all of the film's shortcomings but instead,let's talk takeaways.

Five Notes on Valerian

01.Laureline really knows Valerian's name
You could turn the number of times Laureline says Valerian's name in one scene into a very dangerous drinking game.In every line she utters she repeats his name in case we've forgotten it or the film's title.The film's title was initiallyValerian and Laurelineand was later changed toValerian and the City of a Thousand Planets.It's not enough that the demoted Laureline must say Valerian's name constantly,but must bombard us with his importance,too...

Controversies
Nerds of ColorWhy is theKubo and the Two Stringscast,set entirely in Japan,so white?Good question.And why on Earth is Rooney Mara doing this again after being raked over the coals for taking Tiger Lily inPan?I asked it about the also totally AsianGuardian Brotherswhich as an all white star voice cast (Kidman/Streep/etcetera) despite being about Chinese legends and people got mad at me,as if animated films should have different rules and it's okay because everyone does it.It's not okay.Stars with huge bank accounts need to stop accepting these roles,they have innumerable other ways to make a quick buck.It just looks bad for everyone.Animated studios need to stop doing this.The voice talent is not the stars of animation,it's the animation itself.ACCEPT YOUR STRENGTHS.Big ups to Disney who cast racially appropriate actors forBig Hero 6andMoana,trusting the material was there and you don't need big movie star names on posters when their faces never appear in the film.

Comics AllianceCara Delevigne proves she has complete ignorance about modern film criticism when she announces that they just don't like superhero movies.Oh,Cara.no.They just don't likeyours.If anything critics are too easy on superhero movies which usually win pretty favorable review percentages.
