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

TIFF Review: "Widows"

byChris Feil

If you thought that Steve McQueen'sWidowswould be less of a body blow as his other films simply because the genius director is dipping into the mainstream,guess again.A quaint notion that is thankfully not the case - McQueen hasn't softened a bit,and thank goodness.

Watching the film is like laying on a bed of nails,danger at every turn as you dodge its narrative and formative land mines.McQueen's previous films such as12 Years a SlaveandShamedepicted viscerally physical experiences,making for intense films that can be felt as deeply in the body as well as the soul.ThoughWidowsis less concerned on physical tolls taken on its characters than those efforts,that doesn't mean you don't still feelWidowsdown to your bones.

The Fast and I'm Furious: Ranking every film in the franchise

by Spencer Coile

Dating back to 2001 with the premiere ofThe Fast and the Furious,the Furious franchise has become something of a centerpiece of the action genre.Watching the shenanigans of Paul Walker,Vin Diesel,and company across the span of seven films in sixteen years is quite the rollercoaster ride of quality.Ranging from the good,the bad,and the ugly,it is especially interesting to note the progression of the film series;they initially started as mindless entertainement to...well,even more mindless entertainment,but with some awe-inspiring action sequences with a blatant theme of family and togetherness.Even after the death of Paul Walker,the franchise continues.

In preparation for the latest foray into the canon,the eigth film (they aren't all numbered)The Fate of the Furious,I decided to sit down with each of the seven preceding movies and evaluate each on their own merits,but also how they function in the series as a whole.I'd seen a whopping zero of them before this marathon!How many have you seen?

TIFF: Michelle Rodriguez & Sigourney Weaver in (re)Assignment

Nathaniel R reporting from the Toronto International Film Festival

We must ban the use of the word "problematic"so that it may be deployed to describe pop culture offerings which are PROBLEMATIC in all caps.(re)Assignmentis one of those,even if its too dumb to capitalize on its sophomoric provocations.

A hired hitman named Frank (Michelle Rodriguez...with prosthetic dick because her figurative big one wasn't enough) is drugged and operated on by an amoral vengeful doctor (Sigourney Weaver) and wakes up with breasts,vagina and a smoother more beautiful face...
