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

Review: Love Simon

Stepping in briefly from vacation to celebrate Love,Simon.This review was originally published in Nathaniel's column at Towleroad.

Vanilla is a delicious flavor.Especially if you're in the right mood for it.Loving vanilla doesn't mean you can't love more daring or less common flavors.But you deserve a good scoop of vanilla on occasion.The best thing that can be said ofLove,Simon— and this is stronger praise than it sounds — is that it's very vanilla.Imagine a cross between classic rom-coms likeSleepless in SeattleandNever Been Kissedand then just flip it a teensy-tiny bit until it's gay.Not queer,mind you;we're going for vanilla.

Love,Simon,the new film directed by gay TV power-producer Greg Berlanti (Flash,Riverdale,Brothers & Sisters,etcetera),is based on the novel "Simon vs.The Homo-Sapiens Agenda".Though the novel's title (I haven't read it) suggests something less pro-heteronormativity,the film version is quite happy with assimilation.The only thing about Simon (Jurassic World's Nick Robinson) that "reads"as gay or at all discomfited by his suburban nuclear family life is his inner monologue in which he tells us about his "huge-ass secret"...

Oscar Presenters Named Thus Far...

For your infotainment the Oscar presenters named thus far and our theories as to why they were invited.We don't need to mention diversity because that would probably read snarky when we don't mean it that way at all;we're thrilled Hollywood is making an effort!So we'll name the other possible reasons for the names.Presumably these choices are agonized over and debated at length behind the scenes since they're always so carefully representative of a wide range of celebrities appealing to all kinds of mainstream moviegoers from kids to grandparents to sophisticated cultural mavens to soccer moms.Etcetera.

Just about the only audience they don't cater to on the regular,probably because they'll watch anyway,are cinephiles and Old Hollywood loving film buffs.The Oscar producers often do averycrappy job of that (especially given how many elderly showbiz legends are still alive!I mean come on give us some Poitier,Lansbury,Rowlands,Connery,Redford,Belafonte,or Andrews or something).It's always a welcome shock when they actually do think about their rich industry history and throw us a Kim Novak for example.

The celebrities thus far (in alpha order)...

Beauty vs Beast: Look Who's Still Here

Jason fromMNPPwith our weekly "Beauty vs Beast"fun-time - I'm surprised it didn't occur to me to do this one at the start of this year when we were mourning the epic loss of both Carrie Fisher and Debbie Reynolds (I even re-watched this film at that time) but perhaps the pain was too much.Anyway as Nat told you earlier it's Shirley MacLaine's birthday so the right time has revealed itself,and today we'll tackle Mike Nichols' glorious 1990 comedyPostcards From the Edge,starring MacLaine and some Meryl woman,based on Fisher's thinly veiled book about a drug-addict actress and her let's-say-ebuillent actress-mother.Mother-Actress?Actress-Singer-Mother?Well that's the question,isn't it?

PREVIOUSLYI'm shocked and flabbergasted by you people - hasn't Jennifer Garner suffered enough?Wewished her a happy birthday last weekwith some13 Going on 30love and y'all rejected her star-making performance for Adorable Mark Ruffalo.I...well he is pretty damn adorable.SaidDave S:

"Ruffalo in this movie is top-tier among underwritten love interests;I think him ceding the stage for the female lead is actually a point in his favor.He gets to fill the somewhat vaguely defined dream guy role in a way we're more used to seeing actresses relegated to.See also: Aidan Quinn as the projectionist in "Desperately Seeking Susan"."
