    Critics Rant and Rave about Hugh Jackman

    in Movies

    Noted film critics and avid fans rant and rave about the movies of Hugh Jackman.  Former co-host Jazz Shaw and award-winning blogger Fausta Rodriguez share their reactions to films through 2009, followed by a discussion of movies released after 2009 by film historian James Colt Harrison and entertainment journalist Diana Saenger. Although probably known best for his Wolverine role in the X-Men movies, this talented Australian actor boasts numerous films and TV shows to his credit, plus he’s also garnered acclaim for his outstanding performances in stage musicals, even winning a Tony for The Boy from Oz. And don’t forget Jackman’s Emmy -- which he earned for his entertaining turn as host of the Tony Awards. Jackman won additional fans with his rousing stint as host of the Academy Awards in 2009. An Oscar nomination and Golden Globe win for his emotional portrayal of Jean Valjean in Les Misérables have served to increase his popularity. Jackman’s latest role is Blackbeard in Pan, released on October 9, 2015.
