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: The Beach Bum

byMurtada Elfadl

If your favorite Matthew Mcconaughey mood is of the naked bongo drumming variety,then Harmony Korine has made just the movie for you.InThe Beach BumMcconaughey is Moondog,a rebellious rogue living outside society in Florida doing exactly what he wants,whenever he wants it,and all the while high as a kite.He's nice,benevolent,kind,mostly peaceful,accepting of all and of their foibles.He believes in true love and practices it (straight of course but not adverse to a bit of cross dressing).Even when he finds out his wife (Isla Fisher) is also sleeping with other people,it takes him literally only a minute to go from surprise to complete acceptance.

The plot -if we can call it that - is to follow Moondog along his travels in Key West and Miami...

SXSW: Matthew McConaughey in "The Beach Bum"

Abe Fried-Tanzer reporting from the SXSW Festival...

You know that any movie which has its publicists passing out "scratch and sniff"cards to help audiences smell weed during select scenes is going to be a wild ride.Matthew McConaughey playing the title character in a movie calledThe Beach Bumshould be enough of an indication,and,if still more reassurance was needed,the fact that it comes from writer-director Harmony Korine should put any doubts to rest: this is going to be one out-of-control film.

Korine's last film wasSpring Breakers,a mostly-praised portrait of college students-turned-criminals featuring a highly memorable and indescribable performance from James Franco...

Say A Prayer For "Serenity"

byJason Adams

Although I don't think it's ever spoken in the film it's hard not to have the "Serenity Prayer"-- God grant me the serenity,wisdom,change,courage,check and etc -- echoing in your cavernous,more cavernous by the second,head while watchingSerenity,writer-director Steven Knight's nervous-breakdown-put-to-film.Starring Matthew McConaughey as the hard-drinking and hard-sexing good ol' boy in paradise called Baker Dill (and really we all knew it was only a matter of time before Matthew McConaughey played a character called "Baker Dill"right?) watchingSerenityis,well,an experience that calls for prayer.Any prayer.An exorcism,even.

I realize at this point,with these balls-deep references to demon possessions and nervous breakdowns, you're probably thinking thatSerenitysounds like a miserable experience.It's not...

Miami,Miami,You're Got Style

byJason Adams

Hard to believe that it's been six whole years since Harmony Korine's last film,the pink and orange hued romp calledSpring Breakers,came out - harder still to believe that he hasn't made another movie since.And maybe hardest to buy - this here first trailer forThe Beach Bum,Korine's return to movies starring Matthew McConaughey,makes it seem an awful lot like Korine is copying himself?At the very least it looks like it's set in the exact same world that James Franco's Alien lived in - Southern Florida Neon Skeeze.

Still likeSpring Breakersit looks fun and maybe even dangerous in equal measure.And McConaughey seems to be having a blast (all the thongs are giving me visions ofMagic Mike) plus it looks like Korine's providing some outside-the-box roles for folks like Zac Efron and Jonah Hill.And bless anybody that gives Isla Fisher something to do.So we'll be there when it opens on March 22nd 2019.What do y'all think?

Zac Attacks

byJason Adams

The Greatest Showmanis out in theaters now and word seems to be...mixed,let's used the word "mixed."If any of you have seen it feel free to chime in with thoughts in the comments!I haven't seen it,nor do I plan on seeing it,but it was never gonna be my cuppa anyway.Much more my cuppa,at least in theory,is Zac Efron's next pair of projects - he's entering his Risk Taker phase,y'all...
