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

Beauty vs Beast: Liverpool Lovers

Happy Monday,Jason fromMNPPhere with this week's "Beauty vs Beast"-- we'll be wishing one of TFE's favourite actors a happy 33 this week when Jamie Bell celebrates his birthday on Thursday.We love Jamie and are hoping for good things from his turn as Elton John's right-hand-man Bernie Taupin inRocketmanthis spring...and yet we can't help but feel like it's another bridesmaid role.Why won't Hollywood let Jamie shine?He was the lead in the indie crime thrillerDonnybrookwhich came out a few weeks back -- did any of you catch that?

Anyway for this week's poll we're probably dooming his chance to shine,again,by pitting him against one of our most beloved actresses (and one who's in the biggest movie of this past weekend,to boot) -- his co-star in 2017'sFilm Stars Don't Die in Livepool,the queen Annette Bening.This movie got lost in the Oscar shuffle last year,which remains a damn shame -- both Bening and Bell are stunningly good as the dying actress Gloria Grahame and her late-life love Peter Turner.But now you gotta pick!

PREVIOUSLYAnd speaking ofCaptain Marvelstars,Brie Larson might've crshed the box office this weekend but she got her bum handed to her inlast week'sScott Pilgrimpoll-- Ramona Flowers used her crazy big sledgehammer to drum up 64% of the vote.SaidBushwick:

"Can we get these two actresses together again?!Preferably in a film that garners Larson another nomination (and Winstead her first)!"

Beauty vs Beast: Rock Star Wars

Hello and Happy Monday everybody,Jason fromMNPPhere with a brand new edition of our weekly "Beauty vs Beast"series,wherein we ask you to take a side between a "good"movie character and a "bad"movie character.With Captain Marvel out this weekend let's glance back at one of our fav Brie Larson roles (one of many -- we always love Brie Larson),her small bit as Scott's own ex Envy Adams inScott Pilgrim vs The World.We're facing her off with Scott's current paramour Ramona Flowers (Mary Elizabeth Winstead),which might seem unfair given Ramona's in,you know,basically the entire film and has an arc and all that.But don't count out Brie -- she has the best scene in the film,her kick-ass performance of "Black Sheep,"the Metric song.(Watch it here.)

PREVIOUSLYTwas a cake-walk for our favorite Nicky Hoult inlast week's Fancy Tuxedo battlefrom the Oscars -- he black-tied up Joe Alwyn with 77% of your vote.亚博主页But some people said we shouldn't fight at all,likePeggy Sue,who had the answer we were looking for:

"A threesome."

Tribeca 2018: Mary Elizabeth Winstead stuns in "All About Nina"

byJason Adams

If you hear a sliver of Margo Channing's famous warning echoing acrossAll About Ninayou should know it's not just because the title's a riff on that Bette Davis classic.It is indeed going to be a bumpy night,a series of them actually,for Nina (Mary Elizabeth Winstead) and for everybody that comes into contact with her.Although there are interstitial daylight-breaks,Nina's life revolves around nights and the things that bump them.She's a comedian,and we know well by now how those lives are structured.Bump,bump,POW.Fasten them seat-belts,baby...

"Fargo"Teases Third Season of Polite Crime,Red Snow,and Twice the Ewan McGregor

by Daniel Crooke

For all of those hunkered snug in the cold and goin' crazy down by the lake after a year of anticipation over the third season of the FX anthology seriesFargo-- inspired,of course,by the Coen Brothers dark comedy of the same name,not to mention a buffet-filled bevy of narrative and thematic homages that span across their entire filmography -- here's a home baked slice of warm comfort: the official trailer for the long-awaited return has finally been released.

While the idea of adapting the iconic Midwestern crime saga for the small screen may have once seemed to border on the sacrilegious,the first two seasons delivered enough satisfying,respectful riffs on the source material to silence its naysayers while also surprising audiences with its acute yet divergent grasp on the world and wit that made the original film so great.For my money,the second season's political allegory around the bait and switch of small town community values with a nationalized corporate identity in 1980s America resonates even more presciently today than it did upon first air not too long ago.The teaser seems to hint at a desire to grapple further with contemporary themes in the United States,this time about class and the routine desperation growing within the gulf that separates economic strata.

Fargoseries creator Noah Hawley wasn't met with the same critical hosannas for his latest television project,the superhero-adjacentLegionon FX,but this trailer is rife with enough idiosyncratic potential to soothe any doubt one may hold for his next one.For starters,the mere prospect of Ewan McGregor playing against himself as hero and villain -- identical twins with opposing haircuts,no less – is enough to make you see double.Throw in the equisite supporting cast of Carrie Coon,Mary Elizabeth Winstead,andA Serious Manstar Michael Stuhlbarg,and I'm counting down the days to the premiere on April 19.

The first two seasons of FX'sFargo: ground worth retreading or not up to the legacy of the classic Coens film.What's your take?
