It’s been a long time since I’ve seen the original “Doctor Dolittle” film which starred the great Rex Harrison. That film opened in 1967 so it makes sense that a remake would be done and this new Universal Pictures stars Robert Downey Jr. in the role. Let’s check out the first official trailer for the film.
The Premise: After his wife’s death seven years earlier, the eccentric John Dolittle, famed doctor and veterinarian of Victorian England, hermits himself away behind the high walls of Dolittle Manor with only his menagerie of animals for company. But when Queen Victoria falls gravely ill, a reluctant Dolittle is forced to set sail on an epic adventure to a mythical island in search of a cure, regaining his wit and courage as he crosses old adversaries and encounters wondrous creatures.

The 91st Annual Academy Awards Show (or The Oscars if you prefer that title) just finished and I’m pleased to share the list of winners with all of you readers. The program was launched by Queen + Adam Lambert and they delivered the bands seminal “We Will Rock You” and “We Are The Champions” from the “News Of The World” album. I had to laugh when I saw a friend comment on his Facebook status that more Rock was represented at the beginning of The Oscars than the sum total of the recent Grammy Awards broadcast. Sadly, he was 100% correct. I posted about the live performance over on PiercingMetal HERE if you didn’t see it. There was no official host for the show and this aspect was poked fun at on a few occasions. Now, the envelope please……and The Oscar goes to….
Performance by an Actor in a Leading Role:
Christian Bale in “Vice”
Bradley Cooper in “A Star Is Born”
Willem Dafoe in “At Eternity’s Gate” WINNER – Rami Malek in “Bohemian Rhapsody”

There were some nice surprises for sure. Check it out.
