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

Best Dressed at SAG

by Nathaniel R

Marvel at this feat of fashion engineering.Somehow the 16 actors (+ god knows how many stylists) got together and took the titleThis is Usto heart and made it work.Everythingwas gorgeously coordinated and complimentary though not samey samey.From the royal blue throughline of the gowns to small color accents on the tuxes to the peppering of earth tones,purples,blacks,and golds to keep it vibrant and versatile.The more you look the more cohesive and beautiful it becomes.Bow down.Okay now on to the gowns...

Another Badass "Black Panther" Trailer!

Chrishere.Okay guys,hear me out: Marvel is getting good again?Aside from business-as-usual as the Avengers arc closes,the superhero house will give us Cate Blanchett in drag forThor,Pfeiffer in theAnt-Mansequel,and of course the most eagerly anticipated: Ryan Coogler'sBlack Panther.

Excuse me while I pick my eyeballs off of the floor.The goods on what Coogler has created keep getting better and better,and a brand new trailer has yours truly at a fever pitch.The amount of set pieces and plot threads already at play in this trailer suggest that itmightbe another bloated actioner,but there are genuine thrills everywhere,all the more rapturous for the film's existence in our current political atmosphere.Chadwick Boseman may be our star,but its most exciting element might be its celebration of black women - let's all geek out over Danai Gurira's Okoye.

This (paired withWonder Woman) feels like the first time in quite a long while that superheroes are actually awe-inspiring on a deeper level.It pays to have an identity all your own and not retread on the diminishing returns of other retreads.It's going to be a long four months waiting for this one.
