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

FYC: Best Costume Design,The Dressmaker

ByGlenn Dunks.

Cinderella.Mirror Mirror.Bright Star.I Am Love.Australia.Marie Antoinette.The list goes on.

The costume design branch so commonly gives films their single solitary Oscar nomination that it's become a prognosticator mission of sorts to figure out which couture creations the branch will extend this particular honor to.They are also the branch most likely to ignore critical and commercial receptions and nominate based purely on the craft and that's why we love them.Perhaps it is because costume designers have spent decades being the frills-and-sequin-loving daughter of Oscar when all he wanted was sons,but they use their unique privilege more wisely than others (we're looking at you,composers!)

It was obvious,then,to me which film I should be championing here and it is Marion Boyce and Margot Wilson forThe Dressmaker...

Last Gawk at the Hunks of the Year

Year in Reviewcontinues...

We're attacking 2016 from multiple angles (with a few more categories to go so yes,we never quite fit it all into the right calendar year.Sigh).For today's topic,showbiz men and their gratuitous hunkiness.Who won our,um,"hearts"this year?

Herewith a semi-random collection of hotness.

Not Quite There but Still Sexy
We'd love to embrace Deadpool's pansexuality wholeheartedly but it's been wildly overstated by its creators and Deadpool himself Ryan Reynolds.In truth the character is a straight superhero (like all the others) only with a flirtatious teasing sexual vulgarity.This is easy to spot in the otherwise funny and raunchy "holiday f***"montage when the movie reminds us thatDeadpoolis no catcher (gross!),ONLY a pitcher...and his girlfriend isa lothappier to experiment than he is.

Would you take his measurements?

The Youngest Hemsworth
It was hard to even mind that the casting of The Dressmaker decided it didn't matter that Liam Hemsworth was 15 years younger than Kate Winslet though they were supposed to be the same age in the story.What mattered was the fantasy of Tilly's perfect comeback which includes winning the most eligible or at least most delicious bachelor in town.Pity about that 3rd act twist,though.Why can't we have nice things?

Two Teensy Reviews: The Dressmaker & Miss Peregrine

Presented to assuage Nathaniel's guilt from not having properly reviewed them when they arrived.

Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children(Tim Burton)
Story: A teenager (Asa Butterfield) who just mysteriously lost his beloved grandpa (Terence Stamp),seeks out the home and guardian (Eva Green) he grew up with overseas.The home is hidden in a time loop (!) and under seige by eyeball-eating supernatural forces (!!!)
Review: Intermittently engaging but ultimately generic even in its "peculiarities".Butterfield is dull in the lead but Eva Green delivers (as always) from the sidelines.The premise screams out for a fuller miniseries treatment to provide depth and pathos rather than what amounts to a rushed peek at an admittedly intriguing freakshow.
MVPs Beyond Eva: Props Department & Set Decorators (love those lead shoes,all the photos,and the weird details in the rooms)
Oscar Chances: No.Too underwhelming overall and Colleen Atwood,a favorite of Oscar's costume branch,has other more high profile movies out this very year.

The Dressmaker(Jocelyn Moorhouse)
Story: A sophisticated hostile fashion designer returns to her home town for...what exactly?
Review: Those who miss Kate Winslet and/or those who long for the 1990s era of popular eccentric Australian importsmust notmiss this sassy throwback.Others may scratch their heads at the spectacularly uneven results.Kate Winslet has a welcome ball but many of the character arcs (and even the casting) make no sense whatsoever.Pity about the jarringly sad final act.
MVP's beyond Kate: Liam Hemsworth whilst stripping / Sarah Snook's makeover
Grade: First Half:B+;Second Half:C
Oscar Chances: Perhaps an outside shot at costume design since they're such a crucial part of the narrative?But thenwho to credit?-- Kate Winslet's costumes are by a different designer (Margot Wilson) than the rest of the costumes (Marion Boyce).

If you saw these pictures,what were you favorite and least favorite things about them?

TIFF: Kate Winslet Goes Couture in 'The Dressmaker'

Glennhere.I'm not in Toronto (booo!),but I did get to see this homegrown film recently so let's talk aboutThe Dressmaker.This is a film thatmakes a lot better sense when the end credits roll and you realize that director JocelynMoorhouseco-wrote the screenplay with her husband,none other than P.J.Hogan.It makes sense becauseThe Dressmaker,despite the refinement suggested by its prestige audience-courting title,iskindacrazy.It is a buoyantly excessive feat of far-fetched camp that isn't as good as its highly-stylized cinematic cousins of the early 1990s such asStrictly Ballroom,The Adventures of Priscilla Queen of the Desert,and Hogan's ownMuriel's Wedding,yet which nonetheless has enough of a unique voice to work as a very Australian piece of crowd-pleasuring fluff.It's the cinematic equivalent of Betsy Johnson designing anhautecouture line forDior.[more...]
