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

Review: "Book Club"

byChris Feil

2018 summer superhero movie season has peaked,now with the arrival of its definitive chapter:Book Club,where Diane Keaton,Jane Fonda,Candice Bergen,and Mary Steenburgen readFifty Shades of Greyand reclaim the romance in their lives.Think they can't handle not one but a slew of Thanoses?Well,consider that they are also teaming up with four Oscars,亚博主页six Emmys,twelve Golden Globes,and several cases of pinot grigio.

Steenburgen is the entrepreneurial straight shooter Carol,the one most in tuned to her own needs but perhaps not to others'.As Sharon,Candice Bergen battles her timid seriousness against the need for a new beginning.Fonda's Vivian is the group individualist,drinking rosé when the rest prefer white,hating everyone else's favorite book selections.And Diane Keaton as...Diane (it's really something to see Diane Keaton do Diane Keaton drag) is the guarded one,initially seeming to be the least distinct character but ultimately reveals a woman burying much of what she thinks and feels.

Yes No Maybe So: "Book Club"

by Nathaniel R

First things first: how utterly fabulous does Jane Fonda look in the trailer for Book Club?She's 80 (!!!) Don Johnson isn't even 70 year but he should be so lucky.She looks great as a ginger.

Now that the mandatory Jane worship is out of the way (I just sawKluteagain -which is a renewal of breathless fandom for her gifts every time),let's break down the trailer for this romantic comedy of sorts about four golden girls who aren't willing to stop living and are dating again.Whilst they read books?We're really not sure how the books fit into it to be honest.Neither is the trailer...

Captain vs.Legos
You know how I was all excited aboutCaptain America: The Winter Soldier(which I love and saw again this weekend on a whim)becoming the #1 of the year last week?Well,it's already been replaced asThe Lego Moviereclaimed the title the same weekend it debuted on DVD.Only $4,000 separate their grosses - ha!That's what you call a photo finish.The good captain isn't on DVD until September but he's also only in about 200 theaters and could easily lose the rest of them next weekend.Not that any of this matters sinceHunger Games: Mockingjay Pt 1andGrace of Mona-(kidding!) have yet to arrive and will easily surpass them.

What is Valka's purpose in How To Train Your Dragon 2?

Today's Must Read
Tasha Robinson at The Dissolve on "Losing Strong Female Characters to the Trinity Syndrome".Why is it that even when filmmakers care enough to craft and introduce a fascinating female hero,they always abandon,undermine or reduce her by the third act?Two current examples are dissected: Valka (Cate Blanchett) inHow To Train Your Dragon 2who gets the whole second act (but for what purpose?) and Rita (Emily Blunt) inEdge of Tomorrow
