"I saw this in the theater with a friend who (like me) has a very high tolerance for obscure,messy film.We both left the screening saying,'What the hell WAS that?' "- RV

byJorge Molina

Today,Tony,Emmy and Grammy-winner (that's right,she only needs an Oscar to EGOT;get on it,Hollywood) and human ray of sunshine Kristin Chenoweth turns 50 years old.To honor her career,her legacy,and that impossibly high pitch matched only by her charisma,let's take a look at 50 roles and appearances that she has gifted the world in almost three decades of work,in no particular order:

1) Her Broadway debut in an adaptation of Moliére'sScapinas Hyacinth in 1996.

2 & 3) Her two most iconic Broadway roles: A featured Tony-winning turn as Sally inYou're a Good Man,Charlie Brownin 1999,and the Best Actress Tony-nominated performance as Glinda,the Good Witch in the world phenomenon that wasWickedin 2003.

Kevin P.O'Keefeterrific retrospective on the brilliant pilot episode ofGleeall those long long years ago...

On a whim,I rewatched the pilot episode ofGlee– first aired five years ago this month – just to see if it was as good as I remembered it.If anything,it's better.In fact, it's great.Yet watching Lea Michele,Cory Monteith and co.fresh-faced,unaffected by the ills that would befall them and the show over the next five years,is strangely heartbreaking.It's a bit like watching a horror film backward.

I am so confident that show would have a gorgeous place in history if they had only wrapped it up with Season 2.

Today's Must Read
The Daily Beastlooks back atBattlestar Galacticaand charts what ineffable fanservice quality it had at the time that helped reshape pop culture.Really good piece which touches on a lot of genre films and tv that pop culture currently or still worships.

I somehow missed this recent BuzzFeed gallery onmovie posters improved with animation.Some are annoying with all the choppy looping reset feel that comes with most gifs.I like the subtler ones like the tense Sigweavie breathing ofAlienor the elegant ripplingAtonementbut my favorite is probably this one forFight Club.Pointedly cinematic...literally.

Moving posters for motion pictures are the future.Learn to love them.

The complete short story"The Birds"which inspired Alfred Hitchcock's 1963 classic and will inspire the remake (argh) which might star Naomi Watts and be directed by Diederik Van Rooijen-- which I keep hoping will be cancelled -- is available online if you've never read it.It's from Daphne du Maurier who Hitchcock obviously liked as she also wroteRebecca.(Thanks to Sashafor pointing it out.)

Cory Monteith (RIP)

Cory Monteith's twitter profile photoWe've lost another Young Hollywood star too soon,apparently to personal demons though the cause of death is "not immediately apparent"according to news reports.Cory Monteith,aka "Finn"fromGlee,died last night in a hotel room in Canada.Our hearts go out to Lea Michele and his family and friends.

He played the befuddled singing jock well,with a sweetness of spirit and refreshing modesty.And you know how The Film Experience treasures singing actors.亚博主页

I had long since stopped watchingGleewhich proved to be one of the smartest television decisions I ever made.When I started to hate the show during Season 3 I abruptly quit and now the only memories I really have of it are good ones.So this morning I'm replaying one of my favorite TV experiences ever,theGleepilot.Like the rest of the world when Rachel & Finn spun around each other as "Don't Stop Believin'"kept building my heart soared and I couldn't wait to fall in love with them and the series,too.Gleewas one of the great debuts of television history,full of energy,heart and promise.And that's a feeling to hold on to.

RIP Cory.

(Christian Bale & Winona Ryder?) but anyway,read it.Fun finds.
