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

Entries in Patrick Wilson (30)

Jan 31 2019

Can we give Patrick Wilson the Oscar for *his* Freddie Mercury instead?

We love this man.

And this queen doesn't need to lipsynch.Where is his movie musical star vehicle?The film version ofPhantom of the Operawas 14 years ago and he was much less famous then.We've seen him in both of his Tony-nominated roles (The Full MontyandOklahoma!) and he wasmarvelousboth times and that voice is just pure melodic pleasure,transporting really.Perfect for a big sweeping romantic musical.He hasn't been on Broadway in 10 years but he's co-starred in several box office hits in that time so why aren't movie musical producers snatching him up?

WHAT IS WRONG WITH HOLLYWOOD?(A perennial question when it comes to the movie musical genre).If you were somehow unaware of his musical gifts,there are more videos after the jump because we're in a...mood.

Yes No Maybe So: "Aquaman"

by Ilich Mejía

After being announced four years ago,DC'sAquamanis finally showing some promising signs of life.Director James Wan was joined by the film's cast at Comic-Con this weekend where they presented members of the press and fans with the film's first official trailer.The film's stars Jason Momoa (Aquaman) and Amber Heard (Mera) promised big action and a sci-fi fantasy,but more importantly Nicole Kidman was also there.

Wonder Womanstarted turning some of us DC agnostics into intrigued believers.WillAquamanuphold its predecessor's efforts?Before (or after) we get ahead of ourselves,let's pick its trailer apart after the cut...

Thoughts I Had... "Aquaman"

Chris here.What hathStar Warsthe need to fill the calendar with weekly franchises wrought: we are getting anAquamanmovie this Christmas.No matter because it marks Nicole Kidman's return to superhero fare,which means COSTUMES!Gowns,beautiful gowns.

Today we got our very first glimpse of Nicole as Aquaman's queen mother Atlanna on the Entertainment Weekly cover to the left.But with this exciting news comes the realization that the film...looks really promising?Perhaps DC can shed its Batman/Superman woes (if not match their Wonder Woman highs) thanks to director James Wan and his long proven ability to thrill.Wan has previously given us horror greatsInsidiousandThe Conjuring,not to mentionFurious 7,the most beloved of that particular franchise.

With this cover comes a slew of new images,and I have thoughts...

Beauty vs Beast: Hear Her Roar Ragnarok

Jason fromMNPP,championing the second weekend of big-timeThorreceipts with some "Beauty vs Beast"  love for its ladies - among all the intergalactic biological diversity thatRagnarokdirector Taika Waititi brought to the Marvel franchise it shouldn't be discounted the prime roles he gave to several actresses,including the villain Hela (some Australian actress,never heard of her) and the drunk Asgardian runaway Valkyrie (Tessa Thomspon).

As with all the best villains Hela's got a solid claim to righteousness as the throne is hers and her father's a hypocrite...although I do wish Taika had gotten her more mixed into the bulk of the action.And Valkyrie is a fascinating,damaged,complicated character,imperfect in ways Female Heroes don't usually get to be.And even better the two of them have their own antagonistic history so I can easily ask you to choose sides...

PREVIOUSLYFrom Gods to Angels,last weekwe tackled the Mormon marriageat the heart of Tony Kushner's play turned HBO movie,and even though Patrick Wilson (and his butt) made a good showing it was Mary Louise Parker's Harper who stole 65% of your hearts.Saidrow-bin:

"The one thing above all others that I remember from watching this when it first aired was Mary Louise Parker screaming,"MR LIES?MR LIES!"with this gut wrenching need to escape.I still get goosebumps when I think about it.Team Harper,if nothing for that searing memory."
