Snowpiercer, Tilda Swinton
Jumping to conclusions before the facts are in is par for the course these days. As is the blind leap to vilify Harvey Weinstein over anything mildly controversial that he has even dared look sideways at (though yes, his track record is poor, but generally the dude knows what he’s doing), but at the Deauville American Film Festival in France, actress Tilda Swinton made some pointed, not-so-exactly subtle remarks about the brouhaha brewing over Korean filmmaker Bong Joon-ho's upcoming Weinstein sci-fi thriller, "Snowpiercer."

Even though he's now a bona-fide A-lister thanks to the success of "Captain America: The First Avenger," we're not sure people give Chris Evans enough credit. He's consistently been the best thing in crummy movies from "Fantastic Four" and "The Losers" to "London" and "Puncture," and when he gets the right material, like his raucous cameo in "Scott Pilgrim Vs. The World" or an impressive dramatic turn in Danny Boyle's "Sunshine," he really flies. Even his contribution to last summer's period superhero film seems to be undervalued; the film only half works, but that it works at all is in large part down to Evans' note-perfect performance in a difficult, near-saintly role.
