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

Beauty vs Beast: Only a Mother's Love

Jason fromMNPPhere -- it's safe to say that there isn't a week (a day,an hour) where something having to do with John Waters doesn't drift through my happily polluted brain,but this week's really turning it out.(It's good to gear ourselves up forJohn's new book out in May,I suppose!) For one this upcoming Saturday the 25th anniversary of his last truly great filmSerial Mom,starring a deliciously unhinged Kathleen Turner as the sunny recycling-prone Jekyll & Hyde of suburbia.And for another MoMA,as part oftheir "What Price Hollywood"serieson cinema's transgressive sexual politics,is screeningFemale Troubletwice this month.So with Mother's Day already in the air (and by "in the air"I mean "on the seasonal shelves of my local CVS") I ask us for this week's "Beauty vs Beast"to turn our eyes upon these two of John's most loving mothers...

PREVIOUSLYLast week'sTullypollwas relatively tight,which is as it should be with two characters so inextricable,but it was momma Margo who pulled it out at the end with 56% of the vote.SaidJF:

"Charlize is straight-up one of the greatest screen actors of all time.Male,female,living,dead,any era,any genre,*tongue pop*.I have never been ready for how great she is an I hope I never am."
