Rant Of The Day is where I get to mouth off about whatever I feel like for however long I like. Theoretically, I'll update my whinge/opinion piece every weekday; in practice, maybe not so often.
I have no beef with The Avengers scoring mega-nominations, or Burn Hollywood Burn: An Alan Smithee Film getting heaped with ridicule. But I have to draw the line at the number of nominations achieved by the Spice Girls' cinematic epic, Spiceworld.
The movie -- which, as I've noted before on Gusworld, I found an entirely enjoyable romp -- scored the following noms:
In a year that gave us Godzilla, I see no excuse for this sort of behaviour. No-one is claiming that Spiceworld is a Citizen Kane-level classic, but compared to most of the turkey projects associated with rock stars (remember Cool As Ice, anyone), it was a complete masterpiece. The insult is doubled when you realise that the obvious shoo-in candidate for Worst Song, 'When You Believe', wan't even nominated.
Anyway, take my advice: Ignore the Razzies and rent it soon!
