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

The Furniture: Terrestrial Fun in "Star Trek Beyond"

"The Furniture"our weekly series on Production Design.Here'sDaniel Walber

Early inStar Trek Beyond,screenwriters Simon Pegg and Doug Jung wedge a dumb joke into the voice over narration of Captain Kirk (Chris Pine).He has led the Enterprise and its crew across the galaxy to fulfill an endless series of missions,many of them quite similar.His life,he explains,has begun to feel a bit "episodic."Very funny.

YetStar Trek Beyondis,in its own way,a self-contained episode of an ongoing series.The bulk of the film takes place on a single planet.No time is spent on earth,nor is the home world at any significant risk.There is no massive cross-galaxy conflict.The story is given a satisfying conclusion,without participating in a grand trilogy or teasing a far-off sequel.This isn'tStar Warsor,for that matter,the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

This means that the production design team,not tasked with a universe of diverse locations,focused on on just a couple of planets...

Review: Pete's Dragon

ByChris Feil

It's at the outset of David Lowery's reinvention ofPete's Dragonthat the titular beast is intended more as a puppy to our namesake hero.What follows is a sharp left turn fromthe original's vaudevillian slapstick,with the "boy and his dog"approach used as a distinguishing characteristic from the aimless original and as an easy emotional access point for the audience.Gone are the musical numbers (though the hipster rock is cranked up to 11) and the buffoonery in favor of something more genuinely wraught straight from the heart.

But more importantly,this iteration of Elliott the dragon serves to stir more than just cutesy,cheap surrogate affection.Lowery is unafraid of scaring the kids and making the grown ups weep along the way.What remains is a family film about coping defenses,especially how we lean on our furry friends in the face of trauma.

This nuanced angle is made plain in the film's stunning prologue,confidently announcing those stark differences from its source and the emotional rollercoaster to come.The film is fascinated by moments of magic in the real world,and luckily Lowery has conjured a film that does just that,from Elliott's reveal to the organic emotions it creates.Yep,we finally have some magic at the movies this summer.

Which is Yummier?

It's an Instagram battle.Which looks most delicious to you: Karl Urban's "tasty gum balls,"Ansel Elgort's "milkshake,"or Harry Shum Jr's "Roasted seaweed"which gives him wings*?Choose wisely.

*I'm not sure what that means but I think I'm for it becausehe woke up like this.
