    My wife and I just saw The Greatest Showman and Hugh Jackman does indeed do a very good job portraying P.T. Barnum. I was expecting the character to be a flamboyant huckster and hustler but Jackman played him as an enterprising businessman who just "gives the people what they want." The musical numbers were a bit overwhelming, though, and there were too many of them. Every five minutes, someone broke out in song. The numbers with Zac Efron and Zendaya Coleman, for obvious reasons, came across as scenes from a circus-themed High School Musical. And the movie was overly preachy. Many of the songs and much of the dialogue dealt with the importance of accepting others who are different. I give The Greatest Showman a 9.

    In 1981, two UCLA film school graduates launched the Golden Raspberry Awards to honor the worst films and worst actors of 1980. The "Razzies" have been presented every year since, always on the day before the Academy Awards ceremony. Transformers: The Last Knight leads this year's field with nine nominations. Tom Cruise, Zac Efron, Goldie Hawn, Tyler Perry, Johnny Depp (!), Mel Gibson, Baywatch, The Mummy and The Emoji Movie are among the nominees. Here is the list -- and they could easily have had ten nominees in each category instead of five:

    It isn't just Russian trolls who are trying to stir up racial strife -- now we have American trolls. They're posting false reports of white movie-goers being attacked by blacks at showings of Black Panther and including pictures of bloodied faces, pictures obtained from other websites. Twitter has suspended the accounts of these trolls. The trolls are sick. Truly sick.

    Here are this year's Razzie Award winners -- or losers, if you prefer:

    Tom Cruise, Tyler Perry and The Emoji Movie score big at the Razzie Awards
    Los Angeles Times, Mar 3 2018 2:00 PM

    This weekend brought the awards show that makes us laugh, cry and wince. No, it's not the Oscars. It's the annual lead-up to that gala ceremony — the Razzies. The annual ceremony was co-founded in 1981 by industry veterans and former UCLA film students John J.B. Wilson and Mo Murphy. The year's biggest cinematic losers were winners Friday at the 38th Golden Razzies, which playfully honor the year's worst movies and performances with $4.97 trophies.

    One of the night's big winners was The Emoji Movie, which earned multiple awards, including worst movie, screenplay and director. The Sony Pictures Animation film also landed a Razzie for "worst screen combo," which highlights on-screen chemistry (or lack thereof). The honors went to "any two obnoxious emojis" from the film.

    Tom Cruise, a veteran Razzie bridesmaid, nailed his first worst actor win for his work in The Mummy. Perhaps the most controversial honor of the evening went to Tyler Perry, who triumphed in the worst actress category for his portrayal of Mabel "Madea" Simmons in Boo 2!: A Madea Halloween.

    Mel Gibson won for worst supporting actor for Daddy's Home 2 and Kim Basinger won for worst supporting actress for 50 Shades Darker. The annual Barry L. Bumstead Award, which honors failed TV-to-film adaptations, went to CHiPs, a project that emcee Bill Jones described as a journey "from a bland 1970s TV series to a 2017 regurgitated $25 million bomb" that "found a gullible audience and robbed them of $18.6 million."

    An "In Memorial" tribute spotlighted several men disgraced by sexual harassment and other scandals, including Harvey Weinstein, Steven Seagal, Bill Cosby, Brett Ratner, James Toback, Russell Simmons, Kevin Spacey, Danny Masterson and Louis CK. As the images faded to black, the words appeared: "Very sorry, but we won't be missing you — or your kind."

    Jimmy Kimmel, President Trump get into 'lowest-rated Oscars' spat
    Los Angeles Times, Mar 6 2018 1:49 PM

    Jimmy Kimmel and President Trump’s war of words just took another ratings-fueled turn. The President, in his signature self-ingratiating way, tweeted this morning: "Lowest rated Oscars in HISTORY. Problem is, we don’t have Stars anymore - except your President (just kidding, of course)!" Kimmel, who hosted the awards show for the second year in a row and has made no secret of his loathing for Trump, wasn’t having it. "Thanks, lowest rated President in HISTORY,” the late-night host snapped back at the reality-TV-star-turned-politician.

    Trump, who’s managed to turn his Twitter feed into a sort of must-see TV, didn’t keep quiet about the Oscars last year either. The president blamed Hollywood’s obsession with him for contributing to Faye Dunaway and Warren Beatty’s botched best-picture announcement.

    "The illusions of division threaten our very existence. In times of crisis, the wise build bridges while the foolish build barriers." Was T'Challa talking about Wakanda -- or about the United States?
