Is it really that questionable for The Dilemma to go under the Razzies radar? I know it's Oscar-winner Ron Howard, but good directors make do bad choices too (should i mention 2 time Oscar-winner Oliver Stone's Alexander?). It's a January film with past Razzie offenders, a premise that you really need to strech storywise if you want to make a feature-length film out of it. I have to say that, in the trailer, it looked very mediocre and unfunny (as do almost all so-called "comedies" these days).

First of all,PIRANHA 3-D was among the best reviewed horror movies of last year. 
 
If a movie has good use of it's 3-D, can it be nominated for the new Worst 3-D category, or is it mainly for badly reviewed movies that happen to be in 3-D (like the other 3 mentioned below)?

As a suggestion for the Worst Mis-Use of 3-D, I personally would nominate The Last Airbender and Clash of the Titans, and maybe take out Resident Evil 4 and Piranha 3-D. The two former films were "converted," and I've heard truly bad things about the 3D in them. while the two latter films, especially RE4, had terrific use of 3-D, which goes to show you studios shouldn't "convert" movies into 3-D.

Just came across this article about the recent string of 80's remakes:

I'm convinced that the Green Hornet, if it were actually good, is one of the more underexposed of the comic book super heros, and there is an audience out there for a Hornet movie. It would have to done, as I believe was mentioned earlier, more in the spirit of the recent Batman movies. But that would require Hollywood to take the high road for a change.

Goodness gracious!  Burn's gonna have a field day with that article.  It mentions 'Ghostbusters 3' (they are bringing the original Ghostbusters back, but I have no knowledge of a plot), a prequel to 'The Thing' (focusing on the Norwegian crew that first discovered the alien), a remake of 'Footloose' (based on the stage musical), a remake of 'Red Dawn' (replacing the Soviets with Chinese), and a remake of 'RoboCop' (and I hear Darren Aronofsky is involved).

Someone in the media has to point out that the endless remakes need to stop, because they are out of control!

Yeah, why make a serious, crime drama via Dark Knight for the Green Hornet, when we can have yet another movie of Seth Rogan playing a moron ... only this time while wearing a Green Hornet outfit!?

I think that there is sort of a natural appeal to Batman and the Green Hornet because they are actually plausible. People can watch Superman or Spiderman or whoever and daydream about actually having those abilities, but Bruce Wayne and Britt Reid are ordinary guys (ok, insanely rich, but still humans), so ordinary people can identify with them. There really is an audience out there...Batman Beyond and The Dark Knight proved that. But sometimes Hollywood can't recognize gold when someone beats them over the head with it!

I'll grant that good directors make bad choices, Vheid, but your example of Oliver Stone is more of an indication that Oscar voters ALSO make bad choices.

Incidentally, this new film WILL make a brief reference to the link between the Green Hornet and the Lone Ranger, but care had to be taken since rights to The Lone Ranger are presently owned by Disney Studios, who is developing a Ranger movie. Evidently, Johnny Depp has signed on to play Tonto. (?!) There were rumors that Adam Sandler had been chosen for the role of the Lone Ranger, but if Depp really is involved with the project, Sandler isn't going to be cast. Naturally placing him in the lead would have made that project an automatic Razzie baiter.

Clearly, but after looking over Ron Howard his résumé, I am now starting to wonder if he is THAT good of a director.

Off course, he made beautiful and/or memorable films like Cocoon, Apollo 13 and A Beautiful Mind. But he seems to have also made a lot of trash like The Da Vinci Code, Angels And Demons, Willow and the Truman Show rip-off called EDTV

Vheid, on the downside you left off How the Grinch Stole Christmas. Howard has certainly had his misfires. But counterbalancing, you left off some other outstanding films: Frost/Nixon, Cinderella Man, Ransom, The Paper, Parenthood, Splash, Backdraft, Night Shift... Overall, I'd say Ron Howard's bad work overwhelms his bad stuff.

To confirm, I dislike The Grinch but was afraid that if i mentioned the film, someone would defend it (because i believe it was kind of succesfull when it came out).

I've never seen Cinderella Man, Ransom, Parenthood and Splash and have never even heard of Backdraft, Night Shift and The Paper. So those titles were hard for me to judge.

And it was just plain stupid of me to not have mentioned Frost/Nixon.

Could explain your last sentence:

I'd say Ron Howard's bad work overwhelms his bad stuff.

Did you mean to replace one of those two "bads" for a "good"?

It was a mistake of excessively hurried posting

Word has it that there's a film adaptation of 'The Lost Symbol' in the works, but it doesn't say whether or not Ron Howard is directing it.

I just saw Sofia Coppola's SOMEWHERE, and gave it 6/10. Anyone else seen it?

The only one that could actually be necessary is FOOTLOOSE because then it would be an actual musical instead of a dancical.Let's not forget that HAIRSPRAY '07 was better than the first one.
