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

On Deadpool's Overhyped Sexuality

Social justice warriors argue that "Straight White Male"ought not to be a default setting and they're right - it's a wide & diverse world.Arguably nowhere is this default more set in stone than in superhero movies.

I actually rushed out to seeDeadpoolthis weekend because it promised to be something different in this regard.This,despite no real desire to see the movie since the hard obnoxious sell felt like flop sweat (though it sure as hell workedand no flopping occurred).I didn't end up reviewing the film but this piece I wrote for Towleroad is as close as I got.It's called "Pansexual Antihero or Gaybaiting Joke?"because the buzz surrounding the smart ass mutant's sexual desires is empty.

Here's an excerpt but I hope you'll read the whole thing...

Deadpool fits comfortably in the X-verse,being a mutant,but also by selling the troubled 'otherness' that is the X-Men's chief inclusive draw for moody adolescents and beyond.He's neither hero nor villain,but an amoral guy who discovers he has cancer.His superpowers are unlocked through a sadistic experiment to rid himself of the cancer which leaves him badly disfigured but incapable of being killed.This anti-hero has been described as "omnisexual"by the writer of his comic and the media has consistently referred to him at "pansexual".But is he either of those things,or just a typical straight guy who loves a good dick joke?
