The Best Child Performances in Movie History — IndieWire Critics Survey

The Best Child Performances in Movie History — IndieWire Critics Survey
Every week, IndieWire asks a select handful of film critics two questions and publishes the results on Monday. (The answer to the second, “What is the best film in theaters right now?”, can be found at the end of this post.)

This week’s question: In honor of “The Florida Project,” which has just started its platform release across the country, what is the greatest child performance in a film?

Jordan Hoffman (@JHoffman), The Guardian, Vanity Fair

I can agonize over this question or I can go at this Malcolm Gladwell “Blink”-style. My answer is Tatum O’Neal in “Paper Moon.” She’s just so funny and tough, which of course makes the performance all the more heartbreaking. She won the freaking Oscar at age 10 for this and I’d really love to give a more deep cut response, but why screw around? Paper Moon is a perfect film and she is the lynchpin.

Ed Catto: So Bad It’s Good

It wasn’t that long ago that comics enthusiasts would cringe at all the silliness. It used to be so hard for comic fans to be taken seriously by the world at large. I vividly remember being so enthusiastic about those moody “serious” 70s Batman stories like Night of the Stalker (Detective Comics #439) or There Is No Hope in Crime Alley (Detective Comics #457). But I knew if I ever were to discuss these comics with any non-comics fan, I’d simply get an eye roll and sarcasm along with a “Holy Comics” pun or a “Pow, Zap, Wham” pantomime. There was no respect for comics.

In fact, this led to the adoption of the term “graphic novel” in 1978. Will Eisner coined the phrase to inoculate creative endeavors in sequential art (comics) against the public’s dismissive mindset for all comics.

Today, the world understands that not all comics are silly

Danger, Will Robinson! Cast Members Recall ‘Lost in Space’ on its 50th Anniversary

Danger, Will Robinson! Cast Members Recall ‘Lost in Space’ on its 50th Anniversary
When it premiered on September 15, 1965, the CBS sci-fi adventure “Lost in Space” met with little enthusiasm from TV viewers. But the show, which originally debuted in black and white, gained popularity during its second month on the air, and eventually cracked the top ten weekly programs by January.

A cosmic variation on Johann David Wyss’s classic novel “The Swiss Family Robinson,” the Emmy nominated series became a beloved pop culture phenomenon when it was picked up for syndication following its cancellation after three seasons.

To mark the show’s 50th anniversary, Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment releases a lavish 18-disk Blu-ray boxed set on Tuesday, featuring all 83 episodes of the campy space saga, along with hours of never-before-seen material culled from the personal archives of series creator Irwin Allen.

Allen, best known for the blockbuster disaster movies that he produced in the ‘70s, gained early success as a fantasy TV producer,

From 'Big' to 'Marley & Me': We weigh in on TV's remake fad

From 'Big' to 'Marley & Me': We weigh in on TV's remake fad
I generally pay as much attention to the broadcast network development season as I do to the baseball draft. Though the shows that actually survive development are much closer to airing chronologically than most baseball draftees are to the majors, the winnowing process is just as brutal in both cases. On average, a given network will hear 3-400 pitches a year, order scripts for 60-70 of them, make 8-12 pilots and put roughly between a half dozen and a dozen of them on the air. So I’ve usually found development not worth worrying about until shows are actually ordered to series and scheduled. That said, it’s been tough to ignore this fall’s development season, where it seems like every day for the past few weeks, my Twitter feed has blown up a few times an afternoon with news of a familiar movie or TV property being adapted

Doug Jones Talks Space Command, The Strain, Falling Skies, Crimson Peak and More!

Without a doubt, Doug Jones is one of our favorite actors. The personable, prolific performer always has some interesting projects to talk about, and he recently sat down with Dread Central to discuss some current and future endeavors.

Jones began by describing an intriguing new movie series. Space Command: Redemption is the first installment in a proposed franchise.

"It's an original piece by writer/director Mark Zicree, who has such a pedigree in writing for film and television in the science fiction genre," Jones said, "a hugely decorated writer who has written for everything from "Star Trek: Incarnation" to "Babylon 5" and beyond. So there's elements of all that. It's got all the trappings of a science fiction show that takes place in space, but it also has a warm, heartfelt soul that's unlike anything I've read and I think that's what attracted me to it. And to be surrounded

Ten Best: Episodes of ‘Supernatural’

The road so far …

It wasn’t exactly easy for genre television in 2005. Well, it’s really never been easy for genre television ever in the history of television, but in 2005, a deluge of genre shows premiered and almost all of them had fallen prey to the swift axe of the television gods by the next year. Start by thinking about television now. It’s a fruitful time for horror and science fiction and fantasy. There are a multitude of genre shows, running the gamut from The Walking Dead, Game of Thrones, to True Blood and The Vampire Diaries. They’re all massive hits.

Now, think of all of the shows that premiered around that time in 2005. There was Surface, and that was cancelled after ten episodes by NBC. Invasion, a well-regarded show written by Shaun Cassidy (who created one of my favorite shows, American Gothic) and that was cancelled
