The Razzies don't have a documentary category, but as documentaries are becoming increasingly popular, maybe they'll add one.

I think "Catwoman" has to have the early inside track.

I agree with Malcolm R about Catwoman being the overall favorite so far. Enormous budget, sort of a vanity project for a big star, some possible hypocrisy with not wanting to go on with X-Men but agreeing to do this crap--all things that the Razzies usually do their best to reward!

Yep, it takes more than simply a bad movie to earn a Razzie. It has to take on cultural significance, like when you say "Gigli" and everyone knows the reference immediately and snickers derisively. Posted Image

Well I hated Hellboy, even though it was popular around here, and I disliked The Terminal, but the few other titles that I've seen I've enjoyed. Thank God I'm not a critic. Posted Image

Is House of the Dead nominated, or was that last year? I'd also put $5 on Torque. What a POS.
"Did you know that more people are murdered at 92 degrees Fahrenheit than any other temperature? I read an article once. Lower temperatures, people are easy-going, over 92 and it's too hot to move, but just 92, people get irritable."

I watched Exorcist: The Beginning last night and it wasn't half bad. Kind of liked it actually. But I agree with everything else on that list.

Well, I disagreed with just about every other other title, but that is why I love the freedom of choice.

King Arthur, Club Dread, Eurotrip, and Scooby-Doo 2? My heart is sad!

Course not. As always, that's obviously an IMO list!

Agreed. There's nothing The Razzies likes more than an easy and obvious target. I love the awards and what they have to say about the general ridiculousness of modern moviedom, but they ALWAYS seem to pick (and mercilessly PICK) on the easiest targets.

Heh. It's not as tough as you might think. I get to see most movies a few days before release, and for the ones I miss, there's a local multiplex where I have very accomodating contacts. Access TO these movies is not the tough part; it's the thoughts like "OK, I just sat through New York Minute. Should I at least TRY to get Yu-Gi-Oh! in before I head home?"

Quote:

It's like that with any normal job, though. For two years I worked in a local chocolate maker's factory. Image Willy Wonka's place shrunken down by about 1,000 percent...and no colorful paint. Just a bunch of conveyer belts and vats and hardened chocolate all over the place. But when I mentioned to people where I worked, the reaction was always "OMG you work at a CHOCOLATE FACTORYYYYY???" Plus after the first two weeks, I never wanted to look at chocolate again. (This reaction has long since ababted.)

So when people say to me "Whoa, you get to see all the movies!" my reaction is "Yeah, and everyone else on the planet saw the same movie three days later, plus I see stuff that you'd rather pick your feet than sit through." Plus I'm such a small member of the Film Critic Food Chain that there's virtually nothing "exciting" about my gig. I honestly think most people would get sick of it after a year.

Quote:

Hah. Yeah. That one's definitely a Tuesday afternoon matinee-before-Pizzeria Uno deal. If I keep up with the wide releases on a weekly basis, it's no problem at all. 60% of the movies I see before they come out (yay me = dork) and those remaining titles are easy to catch over a week. Problems arise when festival time rolls around. And since I'm kinda far away from the local arthouses, those are the movies I often have to wait until DVD time for.

Well, I may not have to pay for movies, but parking, food and gas still ain't cheap!

Quote:

It's OK if you're like me. If I see a terrible movie, I enjoy writing a nas-tay review. But, still, it's a whole lot better when a movie rocks and I love it than when a movie stinks and I thrash it.

Plus, bad movies are fun. We can get all excited for a new Merchant-Ivory or Spielberg or whatever, but there's something stupidly enjoyable about discussing the moronissitude of flotsam such as Van Hellstinker, The Chroncilers of Riddickulousville and Felinefemale. Something about bad movies has always fascinated me in the same way that comic books, Mad Libs and string cheese have.

Wow, I'm ranting. Second wind at 3:08 AM, I guess. A friend lent me his Freaks & Geeks set, so I'm off to enjoy that. Night.
