01.14.2015

Transformers: Age of Extinction The Legend of Hercules Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles

The nominees for the 35th Annual Golden Raspberry Awards (also known as the Razzies) have been announced, and "leading" the way is Michael Bay's TRANSFORMERS: AGE OF EXTINCTION with seven nominations, followed by THE LEGEND OF HERCULES and KIRK CAMERON'S SAVING CHRISTMAS with six nominations each. All three films received Worst Picture nods, and LEFT BEHIND and TEENAGE MUTANT NINJA TURTLES are also up for the award.

The Razzies have added a new category this year "acknowledging that past nominees and 'winners' can (and often do) go on to far far better things," and the contenders for the Redeemer Award include Ben Affleck, Jennifer Aniston, Mike Meyers, Keanu Reeves and Kristen Stewart.

The article left out something important!

The Redeemer Award is open to public voting at Rotten Tomatoes: [link]

1) I have a Razzie membership. I got 23/45. However, in order to be objective, I mixed my personal opinion with the worldwide opinion when I voted. A lot of the movies and people I wanted in my heart to be nominated made it!
2) Say what you want about John Wilson, but at least he listens to people. Some of us didn't understand why " Kelsey Grammer was only listed in the ballots for EXPENDABLES 3 and TRANSFORMERS 4 when

2) Say what you want about John Wilson, but at least he listens to people. Some of us didn't understand why " Kelsey Grammer was only listed in the ballots for EXPENDABLES 3 and TRANSFORMERS 4 when he was in 2 other movies (and LEGENDS OF OZ was already listed in other categories). He fixed it before the nominations announcement.
3) Because voters tend to have a "Divide and conquer" mentality, I assumed only 1 of the 2 Christian movies and only 1 of the 2 movies with Michael Bay's name would be nominated for Worst Picture. Surprise, surprise!
4) My major concern was whether ATLAS SHRUGGED PART III would get at least one nomination, because it's the last installment. Phew!
5) I think that turning the Redeemer Award into a category with nominees instead of a special award with 1 automatic winner (the original plan) is much better. We have no way of knowing whether someone who has redeemed themselves will make a bad movie again.

The Rock's "Hercules Should be up there.

I think that was the worse of the two Hercules. "Legend" was just cheesy but you knew what you were getting when you saw it. Ratner promised all this cool stuff and when you saw it you realized that all that cool stuff was a brief flashback.

That one got decent reviews. Besides, there were people expecting more of LEGEND. It was directed by Renny Harlin instead of Brett Ratner.

The thing was that one had potential to be the definitive Hercules movie. It looked like it could finnialy be the one. Legend was never going to anything but direct to DVD level crap. There was no reason a movie with The Rock should have been only slightly better.

I actually liked "Blended" and "Expendables 3".

I actually dont understand why everyone hates the Expendables movies. They are not trying to be smart or clever, they are an testosterone fueled action movie, nothing more. I went in expected muscular men, fighting other muscular men, while things exploded around them. And thats what i got. Could it have been better rated R, yes, but it was still good. There was no social commentary, no plot twist, no character development, just good old

I hear you, man. That said, the third film could have been legendary if they let the R rating, with real blood, slide through. I thought the CGI blood was worse than no blood at all. Gibson was great in that film

1) JoBlo wrote an article a while ago called 10 Ways to Fix the EXPENDABLES Franchise. That should explain it.
2) You're not an idiot. We all have our personal taste. What matters is that you had good arguements for liking it, and you don't insult those who didn't like it.

What about Lucy!!

I really don't know how Lucy did not even make the list for worst movie. She turned into a USB stick at the end of the movie! Now, I'm not saying Lucy was worse than Transformers. But, Lucy should have been a definite nomination.

And I would give the redeemer award to Keanu. Ben in Gone Girl was good. But, he also had a really good story to make him look that much better.

***SPOILER ALERT***

Negative!!! Lucy was a really good flick for it's purpose of attempting to tell a theory on what would happen if your were to achieve full 100% control of your brain. And for the record, she didn't turn into a USB stick at the end. She created a USB stick for them once she became a God because that is the best way Humans can get all information about life itself and evolution with the current technology we have.

The Razzies should be so much funnier

They seriously overlooked Fading Gigolo which was literally on The Room status. I've watched it 3 times just to show friends how incredibly amazingly bad it is. They're all reluctant but then once we're 7 minutes in they realize... WHAT THE FUCK IS THIS MOVIE?! Totally got snubbed this year. Won't be watching.

Hope Kirk Cameron wins Worst Actor. Mel Gibson worst supporting Actor. Melissa McCarthy for Worst Actress.

Also, I don't like the redeemer award. The Razzies are supposed to be like

Also, I don't like the redeemer award. The Razzies are supposed to be like a roast.... I don't want to see no positive awards. I want to see Worst, it's supposed to be funny. Why not worst performance in a good movie "Ben Affleck in Gone Girl"... or something else... I liked the year when they just invented categories for I Know Who Killed Me and it was the only movie nominated in those categories because it was just so god damn what the fuck bad. That year was funny. Anyway, I hope Transformers wins in every category it's nominated in to send a message to those fucking fuck heads who keep greenlighting this shit, that although you might make a shit ton of money because 4-12 year olds like your shit, you're actually THE WORST... FUCK THESE HORRIBLY WRITTEN AND CONCIEVED MOVIES. WHY ARE THERE 4 TRANSFORMERS FILMS? THEY ARE MORE DIFFICULT TO UNDERSTAND THAN THE TREE OF LIFE AND TIMES MORE INCOMPREHENSIBLE.

I'd give Keanu the award for redeemer just cause...

1) I didn't like FADING GIGOLO either, but I would never compare it to THE ROOM.
2) It got only mixed reviews.
3) John Wilson created the Razzies were created as a joke, yes, but also a response to all the bad movies. He likes watching good movies like the rest of us, and is relieved whenever someone starts making good movies again.
4) I KNOW WHO KILLED ME won that year's special Worst Horror Movie, but it wasn't the only nominee.
5) TRANSFORMERS 2 won Worst Picture and they're still making

Saving Christmas is not the worst film ever

And that's not me saying it, that's all the atheists over at IMDB saying it. I happen to agree, because there were far worse movies made in the last couple years. Saving Christmas didn't even have a major release like the rest, and of the thousands of movies made in a year, there are plenty to choose from. This was just an anti-Christian jab, that's all it was.
Like I said in my reply below, that movie was low budget intended for a certain market....where as it's more of a shame that the

That's probably true because Hollywood hates Christianity but admires Islam, the same cowards turning kids in to assassins.
Let's be real though, the movies with major budgets and remakes should be the front runners, not some low budget Christmas film that was meant for a specific market. I think it's more of a shame that the major releases with big budgets sucked complete ass.

Actually, because KIRK CAMERON SAVES CHRISTMAS topped most critics' "worst of" lists, and Cameron exemplifies the worst of Evangelical Christianity. I saw a few clips: holy shit, that was awful.

a long time ago, I used to be interested and amused by the Razzies, but now, I don't give a shit, each year I read the nominees and the winners but that's it ! They have lost it, it is just big names, big movies nominated to make the buzz and many of them are not half bad.
