Maybe the Razzie nod was because Cuba went against the Golden Rule that was mentioned in "Tropic Thunder": never go full retard!

For what it's worth, I made a huge mistake in seeing this movie as a birthday venture. I was expecting it to be a decent action movie and nothing more. I was so wrong...

This movie fully deserves some Razzie attention. It had a horrible script and no real premise. Sam Worthington is good, and Liam Neeson dominates without much to do, so I don't think they deserve Razzie nominations. However, I'm all for Ralph Fiennes getting one. He was terrible.

Oh, and my review:

Ah, see, even one of our own (who has seen the movie for himself) agrees it's Razzies material.

Yesterday, my "daigaku no shinbun" (college newspaper) credited this remake for good action, but otherwise disliked it.

Well, if there's just one good thing that came from this movie, it's a new catchphrase in the form of "RELEASE THE KRAKEN!".

The movie is not that bad...yeah, it lacks a strong story-line, but the background score is awesome and the hero, after a strong performance in AVATAR, fails to deliver. But, overall  a time-passing movie.

Yeah, the movie's score shouldn't be the saving grace of the entire movie.

Just do yourself a favor and rent the original. Sure, it's dated by today's standards, but hey, it's a classic.

It sounds like you've hardly noticed this topic before. If that's the case, that's odd. It's been here for almost 4 months now. What do you hate most about this movie?

Didn't bother with this terrible movie. I would rather watch the 1981 version than this sorry excuse for a "remake." At least the 1981 version's special effects were decent, especially compared to the terrible CGI used in this film.

I remember seeing the original movie way back when. Although the effects weren't all that great, I appreciated the work of Ray Harryhausen and his history.
I just recently saw the remake, and I can say, it wasn't as bad as I thought it would be.
Whenever I see a remake, I try and forget the original, especially if it's a movie I like.
Although it was a bit jumpy and quick moving, it wasn't so overdone that it was unwatchable like the Transformers movies.
I think the problem with CGI is that it's way overused. They use it even when it's not needed. Perhaps they have to justify the budget, so they throw in some animation at every twist and turn. I don't know.
Look at what George Lucas did with the last three Star Wars movies. Going by the time line, the last three were supposed to take place BEFORE the first three, yet the technology in the last three makes the first three look like a silent movie. I doubt that a second goes by without some sort of CGI. Those movies were way overdone.
Then he goes back and ads to the original trilogy? What's the point? Now I'm not talking about adding in Jabba the Hut in the first movie. Lucas had said on numerous occasions that he wanted Jabba in the first film, he just didn't have the money or the technology to do it, so he goes back years later and adds in a character he wanted. All fine and good. But to add all these little things in that have nothing to do with the story?
There are some pretty amazing scenes in movies that were done before the advent of CGI, so it can be done. Sadly, Hollywood has chosen, in many cases, to take what could be a great meal, and turn it into the film equivalent of McDonalds. Quick, dirty,cheap and not very satisfying.
Maybe that's why people don't go to the movies that much anymore, besides the cost of course.
People realize what Hollywood is doing. They aren't trying to make a decent movie, just a quick buck, and alot of people don't want to fall for it.
