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: Searching

byLynn Lee

At first glance,Searchinghas all the marks of a conventional "missing child"thriller.  Single dad's teenage daughter goes awol,leaving signs to fear the worst;police investigation reaches dead end or obviously-wrong conclusion;dad realizes there was too much about his daughter he didn't know but doggedly solves the mystery on his own after several red herrings and,of course,a shocking twist.  Slightly condensed,the entire film could fit into a one-hour TV crime procedural.As it is,the movie clocks in at a lean,tightly paced 102 minutes and hits all the requisite plot beats with impressive efficiency.

And yet,thereissomething different aboutSearchingthat distinguishes it from other examples of the genre.  Two somethings,actually...

Beauty Break: John Cho

To celebrate another John Cho leading man gig (FINALLY!) inSearching,due in theaters tomorrow,I thought we'd do a "posterized".But then I quickly discovered that though he's made more than 40 movies (which is a lot of posters to collect considering his face is only on a few of them!).The first time I personally remember seeing him was in Justin Lin's Asian-American high school crime movieBetter Luck Tomorrow(2002) but Cho wasn't famous untilHarold & Kumar Go to White Castle(2004) opened.Sadly,he's barely in many of the movies on his filmography,often shoved to the periphery,or used sparingly,the filmmaking teams trusting in his considerable charisma to make small roles pop.Even the newStar Trekfilms don't really make as much of his Sulu as they could.So today a Beauty Break for this actor Hollywood hasn't quite done right by.

Here's some Cho for your eye candy pleasure...

Difficult People S3 E5-6: Golden Toilets,Jane Krakowski,and Gay Get Out

ChrisandSpencerare back for moreDifficult People!In "Cindarestylox,"Marilyn asks Julie to freeze her eggs,Julie indulges in some Botox (to fit on a golden toilet seat,naturally),and Billy teaches an acting class for adolescents.

CHRIS:The Ramble has been transformed into an outdoor yoga studio?!Is nothing sacred anymore!

SPENCER:And yet that Leather Queen who climbs out of the tree still wages the war against the women!Love that whole bit where people are telling our pal Julie to smile.Now that is real.

C:So Billy starts teaching acting classes to help pay for his Madonna standup tickets.Strangely,Madonna as a standup comic was a joke that didn't work for me - watch any interview with her and she's an excellent shadestress!She'd make a decent insult comic.

S:Do you remember that one short clip where a fan brought her flowers and she mocked him for it?I mean… the shade is insurmountable,but it is equally hilarious...

Difficult People S3 E3-4: John Cho,Rabbits,and A Dybbuk

ChrisandSpencerare dishing this season ofDifficult People!

In "Code Change",Julie uses AA to fight her addiction to her mother,Arthur fails valiantly to satisfy Julie in bed,and Billy comes to the separate rescue of his brother and sister-in-law.

SPENCER: Why had I never thought of a church as a place to charge my phone,first of all?Let alone a Synagogue!

CHRIS: And there's free coffee.I feel like we spoke too soon last time about the show's guest actors only being asked to just play wacky because Rosie O'Donnell was maybe the show's most straight-faced character ever.

S: I know,right?It was almost jarring — but definitely in a good way.Her reference to Billy being gay… she's totally in on the joke.
