The Razzies!
« on: January 24, 2009, 10:03:59 PM »
It's time once again for that big Hollywood event, the annual Razzie nominations for the worst films of the previous year.

"The Love Guru" leads the way with a total of seven nominations, followed closely by the appropriately named "Disaster Movie" with six.

More on the nominations  here

Al Pacino and Ben Kingsley each have two roles to be embarrassed about, and Uwe Boll is being considered for a Lifetime Achievement Award.

Paris Hilton's movie brought in $27,696 at the box office?!?  As in 27 THOUSAND?  Ouchies!

Alas, there were so many bad movies that there wasn't room to specially honor Pierce Brosnan's attempt to sing in "Mamma Mia!"
Someday, chi1dren, this entire fuck-up will be yours.

I've seen more of the Best Picture nominees than the Razzie nominees. I guess I did all right last year.

The comedian - not to be confused with his more amusing serial killer Michale Myers - Mike Myers has been on a downward spire since Austin Powers. He sounded almost suicidal in Shrek 3 - seriously, see if you can hear him sounding enthused during that entire film.

Even Austin Powers didn't really stand up to a second viewing - I went to watch it a second time with friends... and we walked out going "Huh... that... wasn't really that funny".

Of course, he'll likely stagger on for a few more embarrassments.

For the record, my Billy Connelly impression is a LOT better than the one he's doing for Shrek.

The Austin Powers movies are just sight gags held together by a thin plot.  He's also supposed to be one of the biggest divas in Hollywood.

The Wayne's World movies were funny.  Especially the first one which made a lot of top 10 movies of the year lists.  He needs to get together with Dana Carvey.

Wayne's World is definitely a fantastic comedy but I think you could feel a (slight) loss of momentum in Wayne's World 2, still very good and definitely on a par but maybe not quite as tight.

Of course, if you can stay a box office draw... le sigh.

The producers of The Hottie & The Nottie should pay back all the idiots who went to see that. I wouldn't watch it if my life depended on it, talk less of spending money to do so. Twenty seven thousand dollars probably wouldn't even pay for Paris Hilton's STD medication, much less help the film make a profit.

And I agree, Mike Myers should take a hiatus from film making for at least five years if he is going to continue coming up with such drivel as The Love Guru. Not even the prospect of seeing Jessica Alba or some south Asian hottie could make me want to subject myself to that film. The Hindus who were protesting the film in India wasted their time, in my opinion. Sir Ben Kingsley, being of Indian descent, gets a pass from me for trying to have a bit of fun with his heritage, but the rest of the crew deserve a **73**. Yeah, even you, Justin Timberlake.

I dunno, I think the producers should keep the money. People ought to pay for their stupidity.

I'm just relieved that Paris Hilton is fading into obscurity.

I'm with Notty... with some films, you can legtimately say that expectation, marketing etc. misled people into thinking that the film was going to be better than it was... Matrix sequels and Underworld come to mind as films with masterful trailers... which I rather think the films were built around.

A film with Paris Hilton as an actress? At least with House of Wax you knew she was going to die. Actually, that still wasn't really enough.

Nothing like k1ds to completely neuter a man...but no, I don't think that's all of it. I think he just got rich and lazy after hitting it big with Shrek and just signed up for paychecks after that. How else do you explain going from Beverly Hills Cop and Coming to America to complete crap like Norbit and Meet Dave?
