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

Grammy winner Becktweeted outthat he was recording a score forRoma.Naturally this is upsetting because the movie has screened for months and actually has no score.The soundscape is so unique and immersive and tons of critics have praised the movie for this craftsmanship exactly.Why would they change it now after all the praise?I'm currently having nightmares of what happened toA Star is Born(1954) andThe New World(2005) when the studio kept meddling after screenings with something that was already brilliant and perfect to the point where some people never could see the original version and in the case ofA Star is Bornit was lost for all time.

Box Office: Ant-Man Grows,Mr Rogers Moves In,and LaKeith Stanfield Phones In

by Nathaniel R

I've been reading mixed things on the success level of Marvel's latest superhero flickThe Search for Michelle Pfeiffer in the Quantum Realm.Some say it's opening weekend of $76 million is a big step up fromAnt-Man's debut,others think that that's all too low for a Marvel film at this juncture in their history.It does work as a nice after-dinner mint for the heavy meals ofBlack Panther/Infinity War(though I could've done without the bitter aftertaste of its post credits sequence.) At any rate this is the last Marvel Studios film for awhile.We now have a eight-to-nine month break from Marvel heroes unless of courseBlack Pantherbecomesa big Oscar conservation.The next Marvel Studios film isCaptain Marvel(March 8th,2019) which will be followed by the as yet untitledInfinity War Part Two(May 3rd,2019).

Captain Marvel Begins.Infinity War Promises.Black Widow Waits.

by Nathaniel R

Brie Larson training with a real pilot

As you've undoubtedly heard given that half the internet (at least) is a conveyor belt for Marvel Studiospropagandanews,Captain Marvelbegan shooting yesterday.Brie Larson headlines Marvel's first female driven superhero film.Despite the company's cultural prominence they didn't get to female heroes first.That honor actually belongs to the all but forgottenSupergirl(1984).If you only want to count the modern superhero film era (i.e.postX-Men,2000) the honor belongs to the much-reviledCatwoman(2004),which was followed by the also-reviledElektra(2005),and the also-also reviledMy Super Ex Girlfriend(2006).If you want to only count the post-Marvel Studios world (i.e.2008'sIron Man,was ground zero) theystilldidn't manage "first!"dibs but we shouldn't dwell on their priority problems.Thankfully Warner Bros / DC'sWonder Woman(2017) was beloved and hopefully signalled a turning point in the fate of the female hero subgenre...

Review: "Spider-Man: Homecoming"

byChris Feil

It's another go around the spider's web again.WithSpider-Man: Homecoming,the second reboot in under a decade,Peter Parker cashes in some MCU cache in attempt to regain audience enthusiasm after a string of disappointments.The good news is that director Jon Watts (Cop Car) and team have delivered a distinct revamp that may be far off from the cinematic heights of Sam Raimi's first films,but is still one of the most entertaining.As we last saw him inCaptain America: Civil Warthis is our youngest Spider-Man yet,and he may not be ready for his crime-fighting responsibilities yet.
