Egregious Weinstein Oscar Bids?


"For me it is Kate Winlset’s BA won for The Reader" - Jamie

"The Cider House Rules was terrible and took up space in 1999, one of the best movie years. And Cruise should have certainly beaten Caine." - Suzanne

"His most egregious Oscar heritage IS Roberto Benigni. And I would add Michael Caine winning over a way much deserving TOM CRUISE in his career best performance in Magnolia, that one still hurts." -Eder

Some Rami to Love

Look, it's the first image of Rami Malek as the iconic Freddie Mercury in the movie Bohemian Rhapsody. The film will be directed by Bryan Singer, who is stepping away from the mutants for once, unless you count Freddie Mercury's mutant lungs / range (four octaves -heeeyyy) which maybe you should. What'cha think?

It's quite a fine image, really. Rami's unique facial structure really plays up the Freddieness once you add that moustache. For what it's worth we are promised that this will not be a traditional biopic (it covers only the formation of the band in 1970 through their Live-Aid performance in 1985). There have been murmurs that the project might not do justice to Freddie's story, or his sexuality, because the surviving members of Queen are totally involved. That's always tricky with true stories when the actual people are involved in telling it.

With deep apologies to Queen, I'm now singing one of my favorite of their hits with new lyrics

All we hear is Rami oh ga ga
Rami oh goo goo
Rami oh ga ga
All we hear is Rami oh ga ga
Rami oh blah blah
Rami oh, what's new?
Rami oh, someone still loves you!
