Er, no. The story of A Star is Born is usually Man is successful, Man meets Unknown Woman, Man lets Unknown Woman play lead along with him, Woman becomes popular, Man starts to lose popularity, mainly do to alcohol, Woman tries to save him, Man might die or might not die, Woman either sad or happy respectively.
 
Bucky Larson does not have that plotline. If anything, The Artist rips-off A Star is Born.  


RESPONSE from Head RAZZberry: So you're choosing to ignore the obvious -- that the title BUCKY LARSON: BORN TO BE A STAR is clearly ripped-off from A STAR IS BORN -- and lecture us all on your knowledge of old movie plotz?? Among the elements that BUCKY does take from all previous versions of BORN is the core idea of a small-town innocent heading  out to become a STAR. As far as I'm concerned, the title and that plot device are enough to argue that LARSON is larcenously playing off of STAR IS BORN, and therefor does qualify as either a Remake or a Rip-Off...

RESPONSE from Head RAZZberry: While there may be elements of BOOGIE NIGHTS in it, the complete title (BUCKY LARSON: BORN TO BE A STAR) makes it clear the main "inspiration" for this hideous film is A STAR IS BORN...




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

Worst Supporting Actor: Brendan Fraser/Gimme Shelter and The Nut Job

Final Destination 5 was rotten, but it served it's purpose. Plenty of gore. Probably one of the worst scripts ever written, same for direction. But the violence was hilarious in its implausibility. It was bad, but it accomplished it's mission. As a film it was dreadful, but as a gore-filled popcorn film for die hard fans, it did its thing, with unintentional comedy to boot. 
Of course the 3D was worthless, just like every other 3D film. Def consider it for Worst Eye Gouging Misuse of 3D if they're doing that category this year.
