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

SXSW: Jesse Eisenberg in "The Art of Self-Defense"

Abe Fried-Tanzer reporting from SXSW

How seriously are we supposed to take a movie about Jesse Eisenberg learning karate?WatchingThe Art of Self-Defense,from director Riley Stearns,there are many different answers to that question.Eisenberg's lanky frame and token physical awkwardness make his training in martial arts a laughable concept from the start,though its origins are brutal.At the beginning of the film Eisenberg's Casey is mugged and beaten by masked assailants while walking home with a bag of dog food.This film feels like a parody,but one that's trying to mock too many things...

Beauty vs Beast: Wakanda Forever

Jason fromMNPPpopping in from between Tribeca screenings to quick give us our Monday afternoon "Beauty vs Beast"fix -- I figure it's a Marvel Week what with that lil'Avengersmovie opening in a couple of days and so what better time to step one step back and tackle their most recent smashing success,Ryan Coogler'sBlack Panther,which isstill sitting prettyin the Top Ten,box-office-wise.1.3 Billion dollars!I figure some of you have seen it?So let's face down its titular hero (Chadwick Boseman) and The Best Villain Marvel Has Given Us Yet Eric Killmonger (Michael B Jordan),which is totally that character's official name now.

PREVIOUSLYMark Zuckerberg did even better than I expected withlast week'sThe Social Networkpoll- he managed a whopping 14% of your vote,getting comfortably trounced,as well he should,by Rooney Mara's Erica.SaidIanO:

"This is one Sorkin's most electrifying scenes.I'm Team Erica because sometimes you see someone become a star (of a sort...) right in front of your areas,and it's one of the greatest pleasures cinema.Plus she delivers that kiss-off line magnificently,with just a hint of pity and sadness colouring the brutality of the line.So even though I'm Team Erica,you have to give it up for Eisenberg too,who charts the journey from clueless arrogance to awful realisation beautifully.It's one of favourite performances of the decade."

Beauty vs Beast: Defriended

Jason fromMNPPhere wishing the great Rooney Mara a happy 33rd birthday (it's tomorrow) - do you think she will have birthday pie?I like to think that once she got a taste of pie filmingA Ghost Storyshe hasn't been able to stop.Eat all the pie,Rooney!You've earned it.Anyway I've had Rooney on the brain over the past few weeks (more than usual anyway,which is always some) thanks to the presence of Mark Zuckerberg in our lives - who can look at his face and not want tore-visit all of her take-downsinThe Social Network?You're a stronger person than me if you don't find yourself muttering "Good luck with your video-game"to yourself a couple times a day.In that spirit then this week's "Beauty vs Beast"...

PREVIOUSLYI really though y'all would have to give it to Jake Gyllenhaalfor his performance inStrongerbut every time I doubt your commitment to actresses I get proven hella incorrect - you picked Tatiana Maslany (and I mean no knock on her,she's terrific) with 60% of your vote.SaidBushwick:

"Team Tatiana for her patience - Jake's reluctance and sassiness and Miranda's indoor smoking seemed much more unbearable than losing my legs!"

Movie v Its Ensemble

Spoilers Ahead- Many of you have surely taken in the large spectacle clashing of Zack Snyder'sBatman v.Superman: Dawn of Justicefor either popcorn fun or schadenfreude curiosity after the critical drubbing.Even the film's fans and apologists have to admit that substantial missteps were made.

One of the most gruesome of the film's plentiful sins is how it hangs its enviable cast completely out to dry.This is a cast of Oscar winners,legends,and future greats (poor Scoot McNairy!) giving it their all,but still completely out to sea.The luckiest are the ones that are still used too sparingly: Laurence Fishburne and Diane Lane don't have time to make a mark,despite giving the grim actioner its only laughs.

But the film has a huge actor problem.There are many moments of its cast being underserved,undervalued,or placed into outright embarrassing situations.And there's one glaring example I just can't get past...
