Oh, Hugh

May Flowers

<-- Oscar Maximilian has a flower for his dad Hugh Jackman to smell. I can't tell what kind of flower that is but I don't think it's calendula or cosmos which are technically Hugh's flowers since he's an October baby. I was about to type a excruciatingly lame joke about everything coming up _____ for Wolverine at the box office ($35 million, first day) but I can't do it. The "May Flowers" series this month will not be this lame. I completely promise -- this is just a reminder that it's coming. I'm out of town is all. I don't even have access to Photoshop so I can't even doctor a photo and put calendula's in Wolverine's hair -- You could shove a lot of things into that big mane and those mutton chops. (It's true. No access to photoshop. I can feel the shakes coming on).

I wrote a smidge about Wolverine / Hugh fanaticism among other things fo
r my weekly column at Towleroad. Regular ol' blogging resumes tomorrow but for now it's back to the airport and back to NYC.


If you saw X-Men Origins: Wolverine please complete this sentence in the comments:

"Wolverine is _______ and Hugh Jackman should _______ "

"Wolverine" is ordinary and Hugh Jackman should cash his check and move on with all deliberate speed.

Guy said...

"Wolverine" is not something I ever plan on seeing, and Hugh Jackman should find a way to channel his inherent likeability into a film performance.

Burgess said...

Wolverine is terrific and Hugh Jackman should ignore the internet trolls who are so jealous of him.

alexander said...

"Wolverine" is a film I have no desire to watch and Hugh Jackman should come to my place and give me a good time

brianmaru said...

Wolverine is fun but worn out and Hugh Jackman should find a really good writing to do a romantic comedy with.

dusty said...

"Wolverine" has low expectations for its audience's intelligence and Hugh Jackman should never again accept a script in which his best fight scene is against a man in a fat suit.

Alex in Movieland said...

alexander said it best!!! :D

Kurtis O said...

"Wolverine" is a whopping disservice to the character, to the fans and, most and worst of all, to its star, and Hugh Jackman should make "aim small, miss small" his new personal mantra.

adelutza said...

"Wolverine" is boring and Hugh Jackman should give my money back.

adelutza said...

Come to think of it, Hugh Jackman owes me for "Australia" as well. I guess his line of credit with me is going to be closed soon.

Dimi said...

Wolverine is a campy and illogical mess while Hugh Jackman should find a script that doesn't require mutton chops and melodramatic shouts of pain.

Douglas Racso said...

Wolverine is so 2002, Hugh Jackman should do Roland Deschain instead.

Daniel Armour said...

"Wolverine" is a prime example of Fox's inability to produce a well-crafted genre film and Hugh Jackman should work with Christopher Nolan again because The Prestige was really good.

Bernardo said...

Wolverine's release was postponed in my country due to a swine flu epidemic ans Hugh Jackman should be involved in more films like The Fountain.

Noecito said...

Wolverine is extremely boring and Hugh Jackman should call me (or work with Aronofsky again).

Seeking Amy said...

Wolverine was bleh and Hugh Jackman should always have his shirt off.

Fernando Moss said...

Damn! Bernardo say EXACTLY what I was going to say, about Wolverine beieng postponed here in Mexico and Hugh in The Fountain. 100% agree on that.

Wayne B. said...

I agree with the texter person:
"Wolverine unexceptional. Hugh Jackman remains a gift of god"

This text critic knows their stuff

adri said...

"Wolverine" is soulless, and Hugh Jackman should be given roles that make better use of his wonderful gifts.

JenKneeBee said...

Wolverine is hot and Hugh Jackman should grow adamantium claws in real life.

BeRightBack said...

Wolverine is flawed and Hugh Jackman should have been unclothed for its entirety.

moviefreak said...

Wolverine makes 87 million this weekend. All I can say is wow ! Totally surprising. I was thinking 50-60 million tops especially from the negative talk after the leak, but I guess not.

Chris Na Taraja said...

did you just call Hugh Jackman lame?! i hope not

Marshall said...

In the second picture, what is with the Achtung Baby era Bono attire? Otherwise love the man, kinda dug the movie.

Chris Na Taraja said...

Hey Nat, Is that New York reflected in your glasses or some other city?

NATHANIEL R said...

NY

Maria said...

"Wolverine" is a disapoinment and I had pretty low expectations. Hugh Jackman should break up with X-men, Fox, quite producing and star in something worthy of his talent, until it's too late.

foolishblatherings said...

"Wolverine" is complete crap and Hugh Jackman should just come out of the closet already.

Yancey said...

"Wolverine" was lame and Hugh Jackman shouldn't waste his talents on comic book dreck like this anymore.

Kamila said...

"Wolverine is an ordinary movie and Hugh Jackman should thank Liev Schreiber for saving it from complete disaster "

lawyer tony fernando said...

Wolverine is piece of shit and Hugh Jackman should f my brains out!

And I´straight!

Ezri said...

Wolverine is a good movie and Hugh Jackman is hotter everytime I see him - but he should go to win himself the Oscar finally because sticking with Wolverine will never get him one.
