MEMBER-STARTED FORUM DISCUSSION  

With the Twilight franchise (hopefully) dead, there are sure to be many attempts to make the next “big horror fantasy romance” film. 2011 gave us three of them: First came I Am Number Four (about aliens) then Beastly (a modern retelling of Beauty and the Beast) and finally, there came Red Riding Hood (which wanted to be up there with films like The Company of Wolves, Freeway, and Hard Candy, but instead came off as pretentiously silly) but still not as bad as the Red Riding Hood with N’Sync’s Joey Fatone as the Wolf (I’m not kidding, look it up.)

This year, however, we already got something similar to those movies, except it is actually good: The zombie movie Warm Bodies. Does that give us reason to expect today’s topic, Beautiful Creatures will be any good?... Not really! Other than being about witches, wizards, and warlocks (and having a creature who's female instead of male) it still looks like the same **** we’ve seen before. The cast of this movie either have had promising careers, then just sank into semi-obscurity (Emma Thompson, Jeremy Irons), happen to be pretty big at the moment (Viola Davis), have never been good (Emmy Rossum, Thomas Mann), or are "newbies" (The main leads) It is very possible that at least one of these actors could wind up RAZZed from this project. 

Do any of you agree?  


Elizabeth Hartman and Judith Barsi are more talented and beautiful than Scarlett Johansson and Chloe Grace Moretz. Fact.

To be fair, 2 of the examples you mentioned were fairy tale adaptations(a sub-genre that has been pretty bad lately). That being said, I do think this will suck. Not because it's a Horror/Fantasy Romance based on a book, but because it's a Horror/Fantasy Romance based on a series of books. Even if this isn't  full of cheezy dialogue, it will still be 2 hours of setting up an incomplete story, that will then be continued in as many sequels as possible.

I'd say Viola Davis. She followed up an Oscar-nominated performance with 2 critical flops, and now this.

Well okay, Emmy Rossum was in Mystic River, but have you seen the movies she's been in recently?

And Viola Davis is also going to be in Ender's Game.

Are you saying that Rossum is a bad actress -- or that she's bad at choosing movie projects?

I'm not a fan of Rossum, so you could say I think she's a bad actress...

R.T. Rating:45-50%.Consensus: "Charming romantic leads and esteemed supporting cast aside, this is a plodding Y.A. novel adaptation that feels watered down for the TWILIGHT set". 

Ironic, since the TWILIGHT got the same rating

I just saw it. For your consideration:
-Worst Actor for Alden Ehrenrich.
-Worst Actress for Alice Englert.
-Worst Supp. Actor for Thomas Mann (also for HANSEL & GRETEL).
-Worst Supp. Actress for Viola Davis (not for Emmy Rossum nor Emma Thompson).
-Worst New Star for both Ehrenrich and Englert.
-Worst Music Score.

Oh, and maybe Worst Couple (the 2 leads) and Worst Ensemble. But not Worst Picture.

Hey VITS, how about Worst Supporting Actor for Jeremy Irons? He could be co-nominated with his son Max Irons, who was in The Host.

Every actor in this movie was over-the-top. Some were good; some were bad. To me, Irons was right in the middle.

I have seen this movie, and thought it was not bad enough to call "Razzie-worthy."   

The only person I would recommend for Razzie consideration is Jeremy Irons. He was God-awful!

Been a while since you've been on the forums. You should probably think about changing your sign-off below your posts, since it is kind of out of date.

PS: Jeremy's son, Max Irons, costarred in The Host this year. Wouldn't it be funny if father and son were both nominated in the same category?
