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

Ricki Rendazzo,Reed Richards,and Bubbles Bursting

Meryl Streep?Tom Cruise?Pac-Man?Vacation?It's like the 1980s all over again in movie theaters.It was a weak weekend overall with a ton of miniscule new releases and underperforming wide newbies.Meryl Streep had her worst opening weekend in a film sold on mostly on her presence sincePrime(2005) before she regained her box office clout with The Devil Wears Prada. The only true success story this weekend was the word of mouth forMission: Impossible - Rogue Nationwhich held on to #1 for another weak.It is definitely a fun summer picture but the "best in the series!"reviews feel like a bit of an overstatement.It's not quite as ambitiously staged and exciting asGhost Protocol,but it's better than the other action films around it which makes it seem that much better.That opera scene with at least four simultaneous agendas in play and all the deadly assassins totally confused by each other sure is a kick,though,don't you think?

Review: Mission: Impossible - Rogue Nation

Tim here.AfterMission: Impossible - Ghost Protocolcame out in 2011,it seemed that the series had finally figured out how to become the best version of itself and could go on forever doing the same thing.And that's exactly what has now happened:Mission: Impossible - Rogue Nationis slightly worse than its immediate predecessor in nearly every way,slightly better in a couple of others that are especially important,and is light years beyond the first three movies released between 1996 and 2006.

Like everyM:Ifilm,Rogue Nationis an almost perfect standalone object,with a couple throwaway lines referencing previous adventures and the assumption that you already know and like brash,middle-aged Impossible Missions Force agent Ethan Hunt (Tom Cruise,the series' producer as well),but otherwise assuming that it needs to make its own case for existing (it's enormously gratifying in this age of shared universes and heavily choreographed multi-film narrative arcs that there's still one franchise out there that's willing to just make movies that work solely in reference to themselves.And it does this splendidly,throwing us right into the action with that "Tom Cruise hanging from the side of a plane"setpiece that has been the the focal point of the ad campaign,and building up to bigger and better things from there.[More...]

What did you see this weekend?

I did try to see one movie repeatedly this weekend but The Boyfriend never let me finish the senten --  "I know where this is leading and I'mnotseeing the new Tom Cruise!"so I'll go alone tomorrow.(What can I say?I like stunts.) But the closest subway wasn't running this weekend anyway so it was a perfect DVR & Netflix catch-up plusSmackdown-focused weekend.

Tom Cruise is in danger again.But he can survive anything with derring-do
