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

Would you rather?

We stopped playing our silly Instagram game because Squarespace no longer works with Instagram embeds (I have no idea why) but we miss eavesdropping / spying on celebrities.So let's play again without embeds (more work for me,argh).

Would you rather...
...have a get together with Liza Minnelli,George Hamilton and Michael Feinstein? your civic duty with Kerry Washington?
...pick blueberries with Kiernan Shipka?
...attend Gwyneth Paltrows wedding?
...take a mineral clay treatment with Daryl Hannah?
...enjoy Royal Tenenbaums cosplay with Sarah Michelle Gellar?
...nap with Paul Bettany and his cat?
...get your nails did with The Rock? cake with Reese Witherspoon?

The images are after the jump to help you decide

Soundtracking: "The Royal Tenenbaums"

byChris Feil

Among the many stylistic things Wes Anderson is known for,his music choices are among his most distinct.Each of his films blend an inventive original score with folk-tinged rock and roll (not to mention occasionally too-hip-for-school posturing) to create a fairy tale all his own.Perhaps the most beloved of all of his musical assemblages isThe Royal Tenenbaums,a dorm room staple ranging from The Clash to Van Morrison.

And the film begins with one of his most beloved sequences,musical or not: a prologue detailing the Tenenbaum family history set to an instrumental take on "Hey Jude."Sequence and song are alike: undercut with pain yet too sweet for this world and ultimately quite moving....

Curio: Bad Dads in New York

Alexahere.Each year for the past 5 years,San Francisco-based Spoke Art has held a Wes Anderson-themed art show titled Bad Dads.I would be remiss not to mention that this year marks the first time the show will be held in New York.The gallery described the move as a natural one:

Although Anderson's films take us everywhere from a fictional pre-war Europe to the far reaches of India and even out to sea,New York City is home to one of Anderson's first real successes,The Royal Tenenbaums.His palpable connection to New York is only made stronger by the fact that he resides there as well,and as the exhibition enters its sixth consecutive year,it only makes sense to host it in such an exciting and diverse city.

More info on getting tickets and a preview of some of the work that will be on displayafter the jump

Thoughts I Had...About Our First Look At "Grand Budapest Hotel"

In the interest of speed and efficiency,and before all this good icing melts,my uncensored thoughts as they come to me...

• This poster looks good enough to eat.Literally.All I see is a tiered heavily frosted chocolate cake and I want it in me right now.Put it in me!

• Remember when people made such a big deal of Natalie Portman's nudity in "Hotel Chevalier"even though it was only like side butt?Will their be profile nudity in this hotel?And if so whose?My guess is Léa Seydoux though its unlikely to occur at all.

• The title signage is like delicate decorative pastel frosting (I have not eaten dinner yet,can you tell?)

• So pleased that Ralph Fiennes' career seems to be on an upswing again -- I believe he's the protagonist and butler here -- though I read the weirdest headline the other day (I didn't click on the link) aboutThe Invisible Woman,his second directorial effort,being a misfire of a vanity project.I have seen the movie and I can't for the life of me think why it would be considered a vanity project (though "misfire",maybe) when Fiennes is SO much more handsome in real life than he allows himself to look as Charles Dickens.And Dickens doesn't even come across all that well in terms of character,either.He's no outstanding citizen in the movie.

• Can Ralph Fiennes please do playful homages to Tim Curry and Forrest Whitaker and other famous butlers when he hits the talk show circuit.Please?

• Did Oscar winner F Murray Abraham get a new agent or something?Totally back!Homeland(sinister!),Inside Llewyn Davis(wonderfully judged cameo),and now this.

• This poster reminds me of the architectural minimalism of Chris Ware or maybe it could have been done by illustratorMax Daltonwho did great stuff forMatt Zoller Seitz' new book on Wes Anderson.I want to read that book.Did any of you get it yet?

Max Dalton print of Wes Anderson characters

• My favorite Wes Anderson movies areThe Royal Tenenbaums(#1 by a margin of 375 imaginary city blocks),andMoonrise Kingdom.Hotel ChevalierandFantastic Mr Foxtie for third.No,really.

• My best friend used to live super close to the exterior ofThe Royal Tenenbaumson Convent Avenue here in  NYCand I used to stare at that building in melancholic wonder every time it entered my field of view.

• Wes Anderson is the ideal person to make a movie about a hotel because structures are like actual characters in his movie: the train inDarjeeling Unlimited,the submarine inThe Life Aquatic,the tree inMr Fox,the vertical home inTenenbaums,and so on...

• When will Oscar voters ever warm to Anderson?Beyond the writers branch who (wisely) gets him.

• I just noticed that Anjelica Huston's name isnoton this poster and it suddenly doesn't look as tasty.

Curio: Lucky Jackson

Alexahere.Film and embroidery don't seem a natural combination,but,as I've postedbefore,there are plenty of crafters out there celebrating their film fandom with an embroidery hoop.One in particular,Jennifer Jackson,a.k.a.Lucky Jackson, continues to amaze me with her prolific output.She uses thread like others might sketch with a pencil,stitching celebrities she's crushing on or movie scenes she loves.

Richie's tent

In 2011 and 2012 she did an embroidery each and every dayfora year,filling it with many a Bill Murray and Margot Tenenbaum.See a selection,including Bonnie Parker,American Beauty,Kick Ass,Zoolanderand more after the jump.
