 Great Cheadle caption there. Except he's going to be in "Iron Man 2" next year, so this is just a bump in the road for him right now.

I only wished he was Oscar-nominated for "Crash," along with Sandra Bullock (I REALLY liked that film).

He is good in alot of films, so this will hopefully be his only "bump in the road" until "Iron Man 2" gets released...

Wow! Emma Roberts in her first film to get Razzie consideration -- a sign of the Apocalypse?

But this film looks like Casablanca compared to Paul Blart: Mall Cop. Buzz is slight, Kevin James has the fakest mustasche, Adam Sandler is forced to exec. produce a family film AGAIN, and Steve Carr (Are We Done Yet) is directing. That film will get higher dishonors, not Hotel for Dogs, which is sitting at a decent 42%.

By the way, My Bloody Valentine 3D has 5 fresh reviews and 0 rotten reviews at RottenTomatoes. It's early, but could Lionsgate have its first watchable film since Crank?
You think you know, but you have no idea.

Yeah, I was about to say that too. Paul Blart: Mall Cop seems like a better target for a Razzie. Still have to wait to see how this one holds up.

Cheadle is one of the best actors of this generation. Look at some of the horrible crap De Niro's done. I'm thinkin Blart and Dogs look equally bad, though.

My Bloody Valentine is no longer at 100%.  The sixth review called it rotten.  It was basically one paragraph and a lot of people were ticked off. 

Hotel for Dogs is currently the only new movie this week where the community rates it rotten.  The Great Roger Ebert reviewed three of the films and gave a rotten rating to Hotel for Dogs and fresh ratings to Notorious and Paul Blart: Mall Cop.  I don't know what he's gonna say about My Bloody Valentine, but I can't promise much. 

The predictions say the My Bloody Valentine will take over despite its 600 to 700 screen deficit.

I don't think My Bloody Valentine was screened to the critics but I saw it and I liked it. It's a very entertaining movie.

I only have one thing to say about Hotel for Dogs: I now officially hate this genre.

By this genre, I hope you mean children's movies, dog movies, anything relating to the female branch of the Robert's family, (Eric is IN some OK stuff, though I wouldn't say he really makes it work), and in furtherance, anything with any member of the Friends alumni.

If not, you should.

This is the second time this month I've noticed that a respectable actor is in a very unrespectable film. First Gary Oldman was in The Unborn and now Don Cheadle is in this. They need to re-learn how to pick their scripts.

I guess that Cheadle wanted to take a brake from serious movies and do a fun kids movie, but he still could have picked something a lot better than this!

Michael Moore's documentary, FAHRENHEIT 9/11, was Lionsgate's first, and only, film to pass $100 Million at the domestic box office. Not to mention it won 4 RAZZIEs.

The Mormons were'nt really popular in the beginning, they're now becoming more popular, even in Hollywood.

True, but those Razzies were our way of sticking it to George W. Bush and his band of merry morons, not for Moore's skills as a filmmaker.

And that proves that the RAZZIEs hated Bush, as does most Americans.
