The gladsome current of our youth, Ere passion yet disorders, Steals lingering like a river smooth Along its grassy borders.
But as the careworn cheek grows wan, And sorrow's shafts fly thicker, Ye stars, that measure life to man, Why seem your courses quicker?
When joys have lost their bloom and breath, And life itself is vapid, Why, as we reach the Falls of Death Feel we its tide more rapid?
It may be strange—yet who would change Time's course to slower speeding, When one by one our friends have gone, And left our bosoms bleeding?
Heaven gives our years of fading strength Indemnifying fleetness; And those of youth, a seeming length, Proportion'd to their sweetness.
- Thomas Campbell
The musical “cats” was a highly anticipated movie with stars like Dame Judi Dench, Taylor Swift, James Corden, and Idris Elba. But it didn’t go exactly as planned and it pretty much bombed at the box office. So much so that the film has been awarded multiple Golden Raspberry Awards. And that’s not a good thing!
The Golden Raspberry Awards are given to the best of the worst in cinema. “Cats,” “Madea,” and “Rambo” led the nominees when the list was announced back in February.
“Cats” won six awards: Worst picture, worst supporting actress and actor for Rebel Wilson and James Corden, worst director for Tom Hooper, worst screenplay and worst screen combo for “Any Two Half-Feline/Half-Human Hairballs.”
The Razzies are voted on by members which is 1,107 from the U.S. and about two dozen foreign countries.
