A Mischief Of Magpies

If the Sun were the size of a beach ball then Jupiter would be the size of a golf ball and a Mischief of Magpies would be as small as a pea.

It's That Time Again.............The Razzies.

An award ceremony for the worst in Hollywood. Fuck me, where does one start.................

It's mission is to promote the things that Hollywood would rather not promote. Films that are so bad, their very titles should ensure you never have to bother seeing them. Easy targets, sure, but if it wasn't for the Razzies, such slop would be allowed to slink off into the background unchallenged, much to the relief of the actors and directors involved. This years Dogs can be found here. I've seen none of them, but I hear Son Of Mask, starring Alan Cumming is particularly awful.

Where the Razzies really score in my view is in pricking Hollywood pomposity and letting big name stars know that they're not nearly as great as they think they are. This year, world champion cunt Tom Cruise has taken three hits, one for his performance in War Of The Worlds and two in a new category entitled "Most Tiresome Tabloid Targets". I assume Tom's foot in mouth slobberings about vitamins and Scientology have made him a prime target. Of course, the best way for any self respecting stars to counter the Razzies is to come and collect 'em themselves. Some stars understand that this is a good move, being able to poke fun at themselves and say "Ok, folks, that one was a stinker". On the whole though, the awards are not collected by their intended victims, which is a pity. I mean, what do you have to do to get the likes of J-Lo and 'The Rock' to go back to their day jobs....................

Was it Halle Berry who did actually collect hers ? I think it was for Catwoman (godawful tripe). If so, all credit to her for recognising a horrendous career choice.

I think she acknowleged as much. She also got stuck into the crew and co-actors too. I think the guy that directed Showgirls turned up to collect his Razzies too.

Apparently, the infamous Uwe Boll sees his Razzie nomination as a great honour.

I can't wait to see the speech.
