Mugato: I was dragged to Twilight and that movie deserved its award. For a movie that's a sequel to a multi-billion dollar franchise it looks like a TV movie. And no one involves seems to give a shiat. So that's why a movie like this is worse than any Ed Wood or "Manos the Hands of Fate". Because they had the resources to make it not suck so much.


That is the point of the Razzies. If we went by the author of TFA's metric, the only movies that would get this award would be no-budget flicks with unknown actors from first time directors that few people saw and probably didn't get any distribution.

The Razzies are about Hype versus the actual product. Movies that have every advantage to be good (well known cast, experienced director and crew, decent budget), but just don't work.

That's why Michael Bay caught so much shiat for Transformers 2. Past movies like The Rock and Bad Boys show that he is capable of turning in a good movie, but TF2 was a $200 million turd.

Sure, it was technically worlds beyond something like Birdemic, but the people who made Birdemic knew their movie was bad. They didn't care. They were learning how to make a movie and having a blast doing it.

Crewmannumber6: blue_2501: the term "good horror movie" is an oxymoron

I am by no means a horror movie fan, but to say that there are no good horror movies is idiotic. If I had to give one example it would be Pan's Labrynth. Nothing short of a masterpiece.


The Exorcist was an incredibly good horror movie tha wast screwed out of a best picture Oscar by The Sting

I see where this guy is coming from but while the Razzies of late have gone to big movies that people love to hate they do at least nominate a fair representation of bad cinema. For example they nominated the Oglveies big adventure or what ever it is called and it was the worst preforming film of the year. It made an average of 47 bucks a theater in wide release. You really can't dump on that movie too much, after all, who has seen it? Also the Twilight award was in recognition of the entire series. You can't deny that, popularity and box office aside the Twilight movies are very bad cinema based on some really badly written and poisonous books.

  You can't argue with their ranking Battlefield Earth the worst movie of the last 25 years for example.

I liked Howard the Duck. That issue of PlayDuck he 'reads' still makes me feel funny in pants.

That's what you were looking at during Howard the Duck? Guess I was distracted by other things.

Would hit like Michael J. Fox at the bumper cars.

Mugato: Sounds like a Twilight fan.


That's exactly what I was thinking.  The short translation to that 'story' is "I liked Twilight and because you picked on it, you need to stop having your awards ceremony."

mongbiohazard: Bloody William: LonMead: Get rid of the Razzies?

I'll torture you so slowly, you'll think it's a career.

Hudson Hawk is a great movie and I'll flying jump kick anyone who says otherwise!


Hell yes. Saw it in the theater, and have watched it many tiems since. One of my favorites.


That is something I'll never understand. I love that movie. Everybody I know who has seen it loves it, yet it is a punchline on the level of Ishtar when.bad movies are mentioned. Whiskey Tango Foxtrot?

coeyagi: dletter: coeyagi: dletter: Just like anything else, the Razzies have to try to attract an audience.  Just ripping on movies nobody has too many people have seen (for good reason) doesn't get peoples interest.

Although, are the Razzies televised or anything?  I mean, are they actually trying to make money on it?

You must live in alternate universe where Twilight doesn't exist.

No, you just were not getting my point... I was pointing out that it doesn't make sense for the Razzies to actually nominate REALLY BAD movies.... because nobody actually sees or hears about them.   It makes more sense to do what they do... rip on popular movies/stars who star in things that a large part of the population doesn't like, even if another sizable population does like it, because that gets attention.

OMG, and I am arguing that your point is WRONG.  Plenty of people have seen these movies.  What makes you think a bad movie is an unseen movie?  Have you been to a multiplex lately?  Mostly teens going to see crap.

Please, please, stop typing. You are contributing nothing if you can't even accept this as fact.


Okay let ME try, moron. He isn't talking about movies lie Twilight or Jack and Jill that actually have at least a fair sized audience. He is talking about movies that are so low budget that they have practically no advertising budget, are in theaters for only a week, and sometime have a total audience nation wide in single didget thousands or less. You know JUST like the actual article was. You DO know if you click on the links you can read the article BEFORE you repeatedly make yourself look like a dipshiat, right?

I was respond to his argument, dumbass. He mentioned nothing about Twilight or Jack and Jill not being the concerns.  He should have made that clear if that is what he was talking about.

//This is Fark, where DNRTFA is acceptable.

He WAS perfectly clear to every one but YOU. Kinda makes you the dumbass.

And yes. This is FARK. Where DNRTFA + trying to act like you know it all about the discussion makes you look like a retard and open for mocking.

I REALLY tried to watch Hudson Hawk.. but it is HORRIBLE.  If there's a rifftrax for it, I still don't think I could watch it.  I cannot fathom how anyone can like it, much less watch it.

I know there will always be some movies like that for me, but this one is topped only by the recent Muppets atrocity.

I agree. Maybe if I knew it was an absurd comedy going in I'd tolerate it more but probably not. Same with The Fifth Element. I thought it was going to be a slightly gayer Star Wars and left disappointed. Then I watched it again knowing it was a screwball comedy and enjoyed it more.

I'm completely opposite you regarding Fifth Element though.  I loved that from moment one.  The soundtrack really tied that one up as a favorite for me.  But then, I didn't pick to watch it on gay date night. :D
