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

Celebrating "Waitress": 10 Years Later

By Spencer Coile

Jenna (Keri Russell) knows pies.Caught in a dead-end marriage to an emotionally and physically abusive husband,Jenna dreams of the day she can finally save up enough money working in the local pie shop and escape her boring life...that is,until she finds herself pregnant.Giving insight into Jenna's mind through the use of potential pie recipes,Waitressfollows Jenna as she (begrudgingly) agrees to have the baby,keeps working,and begins an affair with her new doctor (Nathan Fillion).

Indeed,Adrienne Shelly's 2007 film--released ten years ago to the day--was lauded for its down-to-earth nature,its humble storytelling,and the central performance from Keri Russell.There are no tricks up Shelly's sleeve here;she managed to tell a simple,heartfelt story that is imbued with messages of strength,female friendships,and the power of a good pie.What makes the film equally as affecting is the fact that,although Shelly wrote,directed,and starred in her own work,she was tragically killed before the release.Considering this complicated history,not to mention the film's eventual legacy,let's help oursevles to another slice and dive into the sweet and savoryWaitress.

Hit Me With Your Best Shot: "Firefly / Serenity"

For this week's edition ofHit Me With Your Best Shot,the series wherein we invite everyone to get opinionated and choose the single best shot from pre-selected movies,we offered up an atypical two-for-one deal.You could either choose an image fromFirefly's first episode (if you'd never seen the Joss Whedon series and wanted to start at the beginning) or an image from its movie spinoffSerenity.Or both if you're crazy about Captain Tightpants.I am but I chose only the latter in order to tie it into 2012's Joss Whedon film frenzy.

Though Whedon had beenOscar nominated for screenwriting(Toy Story,1995) even beforeBuffy the Vampire Slayerbowed on TV making him famous,Serenitywas his feature film directorial debut.You might even call it his audition piece forThe Avengers.Transitioning between medium is rarely simple for creative talent and Whedon wisely made the leap by leaning right into his earned TV auteur status.

I know.We're going for a ride."

I never read contributor posts until I've finished mine but I'll be surprised if someone doesn't choose the bravura post title scene.It's actually a four and a half minute long continuous shot reintroducing us to the entire Serenity crew from the shortlived but wonderfulFireflyseries.It begins by following Captain Malcolm Reynolds (Nathan Fillion) around as he barks order to his crew until its finally handed off like a baton to the stowaway siblings Simon (Sean Maher) and River (Summer Glau) at the heart of the plot.Whedon rarely resists self-mythologizing the Whedonverse and it's just perfect that the shot ends with the mysterious psychic River Tam promising you a good time at the movies -- "we're going for a ride"-- just as Joss's name materializes on her body like a branding.

My two sibling choices for "Best Shots"are after the jump.
