"BASED on a VIDEO GAME" IS ALMOST ALWAZE an INDICATOR of RAZZIE® PEDIGREE, BUT in THIS CASE, THE FILM LOOKS DELICIOUSLY TACKY, TASTELESS and TOTALLY FUN.

SO DOES THAT MEAN WE DO (or DON'T)  CONSIDER THIS PERFECT EXAMPLE of PATRIOTIC PULCHRITUDE a RAZZIE® CONTENDER??

Huh?  I thought I heard something about this movie going direct-to-DVD last April.

"The DOA movie is poised to hit store shelves rather than theaters, it seems. Kotaku notes the IMDB entry, saying that the film won't be headed to movie theaters. Instead, it will have a direct-to-DVD release in the U.S. sometime in April."

Sigh...I thought the DOA movie people were going to be merciful and keep this out of theaters.  I also heard that they originally tried to release this in U.S. theaters back in November or December 2006. 

Response from Head RAZZberry:  D.O.A. certainly looks like it shoulda been a Direct-to-DVD release, but apparently did well enough in foreign territories (LINK) to convince American theatre owners it might have a shot as a theatrical. Given how cheap-jack the promotional materials for the film make it look, the $6 million it has taken in to date overseas probably mean it's already into profit. According to B.O. MoJo (which occasionally does get such details wrong) D.O.A. will debut on about 500 screens across the US this Friday ( LINK ). Locally, The L.A. Times listed D.O.A. among this week's releases in the Sunday Calendar section -- But there was no print ad for it anywhere in the paper...

Well, it will be released on theaters this week, with FF2, which I cannot wait to watch!

Response from Head RAZZberry: Did you mean "unleashed" on theatres, or "released in theatres"??

This film does look Berry Bad alright. And for Fantastic 4: Rise of the Silver Surfer, despite ending up getting a family-friendly PG-rating, might be better than the first, which was OK, but like the other voters, didn't like Jessica Alba in that. Though, Head RAZZ, you have any thoughts on Fantastic Four: Rise of the Silver Surfer? And do you have any thoughts on the other film about to be released in theaters this week as well, Nancy Drew?

Response from Head RAZZberry: Can't tell with FANTASTIC FOUR: RISE OF THE SILVER SURFER if it's gonna be okay or not. I actually kinda liked the first one (except for Alba) so I expect this sequel (unless it really blows) to avoid The Wrath of RAZZIE. As for NANCY DREW, as of Wednesday morning (6/13/07) it had a lowly 25% Approval Rating at RT ( LINK ) and looked like a likely alternative for Worst New Movie of the Weak. If, on top of getting bad reviews, it tanks at the box office (which my instincts tell me it will) we may add NANCY to our Forum discussions list early next week. I picked D.O.A. over DREW because the former sounded like it might actually be Enjoyably Bad, as opposed to just Dreadfully Bad, the way NANCY appears to be..

Great!  Here's ANOTHER game that Hollywood will screw over.  I believe the only game that Hollywood hasn't manage to completely ruin is Mortal Kombat.

Update on this week's new releases: NANCY DREW has climbed to a respectable 56% Approval Rating at RT ( LINK ), D.O.A. is stagnating around 50% ( LINK ) and FANTASTIC FOUR: RISE OF THE SILVER SURFER has tumbled to a surprisingly low 28% ( LINK ). Looks like SILVER SURFER may take NANCY's place as our second Worst New Movie of the Weak choice...

I just hope there isn't a Rumble Roses movie coming out anytime soon.

GOOFS: Continuity: We are shown Helena having a tattoo on her lower back (during the beach scene) and one on her neck (during the fight scene with Christie), but later in the fight, with her back to us, both parts are visible, but the tattoos have disappeared.

This looked like "Showgirls", except problably not as bad or oddly watchable.

It was a pretty bad movie. It should be considered in these categories...

WORST PICTURE, WORST DIRECTOR (Corey Yuen), WORST SUPPORTING ACTOR (Eric Roberts), WORST SCREENPLAY

Has to be one of the lamest movies in years. It probably doesn't deserve
even the attention of being nominated.
