Oh, the horror….

The Mummy, Fifty Shades Darker and the latest Transformers movie, The Last Knight, are the leading contenders for Hollywood’s annual worst films list, the Golden Raspberry awards – AKA the Razzies.

All three principal actors of the revival of the 1930s monster pic The Mummy have been nominated: Tom Cruise for worst actor, and Russell Crowe and Sofia Boutella for worst supporting actor and actress. The Mummy has seven nominations, including one for worst remake, ripoff or sequel.

Transformers: The Last Knight has nine, however, including worst screen combo. Mark Wahlberg does double duty with worst actor nominations for Transformers and Daddy’s Home 2, while Anthony Hopkins picked up two worst supporting actor nominations. The other major contender is Fifty Shades Darker, with eight nominations, including worst actor and actress for Jamie Dornan and Dakota Johnson.While The Book of Henry, The Snowman and The Dark Tower were ignored, there was a surprise inclusion for Mother!, which earned Jennifer Lawrence, Javier Bardem and Darren Aronofsky nominations for worst actress, supporting actor and director, respectively.

The awards’ worst screen combo section contains its quirkiest nominations, with the most notable being Johnny Depp for his “worn-out drunk routine”, which gets a nod for what the Razzies refer to as Pirates of the Caribbean XIII: Dead Careers Tell No Tales. Transformers is also referred to throughout as Transformers XVII: Last Knight, despite it being the fifth in the series.

The Razzies will be held on 3 March, the day before the Oscars.

Passing through

Thought provoking, beautifully filmed with superb narration, this short video from Vimeo puts both life’s ending and beginning into a reassuring perspective. It requires neither gods nor faith, simply that we move from “I am” to “I was.” To be human suffices and is its own context and justification.
