Oscars 2019: The Queen is in the Building

The Oscar opened with Adam Lambert, American Idol alumni, singing a medley of Queen ’s hit songs from Bohemian Rhapsody. Adam Lambert and the Queen band will be touring this summer. Plus, Adam Lambert is a fantastic singer.

Since there was no host for the show, Tina Fey, Amy Poehler, and Maya Rudolph lighten up the mood, more like Bob Hope, and Johnny Carson would do make them laugh. Comedians make a good host. Next year, would you please get James Corden he is funny please check him out on CBS Late, Late Show with James Corden. Or Tina Fey?

The top winner for the night was Bohemian Rhapsody with four awards for sound mixing, sound editing, and film editing, While Rami Maleck got for best actor.

Roma got three awards, including best director, Best foreign film, and best cinematography.

Mahershala Ali

Green Book won for Best Picture and best supporting actor for Marhershala Ali.

Best Visual went to First Man

For the category for best costume, Melissa McCarthy and Tyree Henry strolled on to the stage wearing their costumes. Melissa McCarthy dressed in bunnies on her gown from the Favourite and her red hair from Mary Queen of Scots, while Henry dressed as Mary Poppins. The puppet rabbit was having difficulty opening the envelope. So the Oscar goes to Ruth E. Carter for Black Panther, and also Black Panther won for the best music score and production design.

Dana Carvey and Mike Myers present Bohemian Rhapsody. They reunite together on stage and present Bohemian Rhapsody as best picture nominee.

Holmes and Watson: They Don’t Have a Clue

If you haven’t heard, Holmes & Watson: They Don’t Have a Clue is a blockbuster hit for Will Farrel and John C. Riely – seriously it’s terrible. That’s the clue. They did not have a clue.  When it premiered on Christmas Day lots of people attended, and within 45 minutes of the film, people were walking out, seriously it’s bad. Trust me on this, I have seen it, and I asked the clerk if I can see Spider-Man again. She said sure go ahead.  She follows me in to see Spiderman: Into the Spider-Verse. She paid for the popcorn and drinks for me. I am lucky.

Critics and audience seriously did not like it at all, especially the audience who watch it and wanted a refund – seriously. See another movie or see Bumblebee that is playing next door. Even Will Farrel and John C. Riely went to see Aqua Man, that also a fantastic film, in which I don’t blame them at all, might as well hide from the audience who wanted to throw a magnify glass at them and tell them to get a better clue to make this movie enjoyable.  Why make a horrible comedy a comedy when people wanted to walk out from it?

It was a terrible, horrible comedy. The audio dubbing was bad, and I bet the outtakes from the movie would be better than the movie when it comes out on DVD next three weeks from today.

They make a good comedy team, they should do what Bob Hope and Bing Crosby did, make road trip films, and they were successful at it. Why did they pick this project?

Ethan Cohen is the writer and director, and it is based on an SNL sketch. Unfortunately, it would be great for TV, but not for a movie.  He could have written a better story for the guys also it would be better and funnier.

If you wanted to see a train wreck of Holmes and Watson, save your money and watch something else.
