If we count movies he has produced,6 are bad and 1 is average.Not to mention his score at R.T. is 7/100.I supposse he qualifies then.

However,if by "Razzie count" you mean his noms.,he doesn't.Out of the 16 movies he's made(I don't count his small gig in INDICENT PROPOSAL),only 6 has been nominated,of which 1 wasn't a nom. for him("Worst Supportin'Actor" for Jon Voight in TRANSFORMERS).He has only won 2.

No, I'm saying he should be banned from the internet for showing an extreme bias.
Actually, Uwe Boll is the Paris Hilton of producing/directing (or is it Seltzerberg?).
As far as I know, we're not giving out a Worst Career Achievement award this year.

"Extreme bias"!? Come on now, man. If instead of saying "Anything made by Michael Bay", he said "Anything with "Twilight Saga" in the title" as a warning sign, you would be singing his praises from on top of the highest mountain that you could climb! Stop trying to con us that we should only hate certain bad movies and not all of them.

Uwe Boll had serveral nods, and no "wins" yet when he was voted his Worst Career award.

1)He "won" Worst Director for 3 titles that same year.
2)All of his movies have an RT score between 1 and 11%. And his overall score is 0%.

Yeah -- so? In the past, not even Stallone or Madonna have won career awards, and they have won more Razzies than anyone. Razzies standards are different than most award shows; it really does come down to who the 700 voting members hate the most that year...

I guess Michael Bay must be the George W. Bush of directing, if Uwe Boll is the Paris Hilton!!

This very lame re-make was done by a director that obviously has no passion for or love of the horror genre. Wes Craven at least brought the somber mood necessary. With the scraping claws on the wall, the dripping water, the whole ominous imagery of a dream, he built REAL tension. In re-makes, they get a bunch of perfect-looking Abercrombie models to run around and get killed in their sleep. We are not vested in the characters because most people aren't surrounded by 50 people that look like GQ cover models, devoid of any acting skills or abilities. 

Hopefully if, God-forbid, they make another one, they will get a different director to direct.

Your review pretty much hit the nail on the head. But please do not mention possible sequels, because once you do, the studios will go ahead and do it ... with the same director from this first movie!

BurnHollywoodBurn, you're all over that Law of Unspeakability, aren't you? Anything bad that's spoken happens, and anything good that's spoken ceases to be. When did it NOT apply recently?

Well, people keep talking about there being a "Grand Thief Auto" movie, but thankfully, that hasn't happened yet. That kinda breaks the anything bad rule. However, people keep on talking about a "Halo" movie, but that hasn't happened yet. So there's the anything good rule in effect!

I disagree. There are many scenes that built up in tension and suspense.

Wes Craven at least brought the somber mood necessary.

And you didn't think these actors could have been in a Twilight movie? The entire film was taken rather seriously with serious performances by the cast all around. Nobody was in the mood of being happy and the dingy lighting in scenes and the way the film looked overall was somber.

In re-makes, they get a bunch of perfect-looking Abercrombie models to run around and get killed in their sleep.

First of all, probably only two actors in the main cast looked like models. Other than that, the rest of the cast looked like normal people. Hell, even the two protagonist looked like emo/goth people.

We are not vested in the characters because most people aren't surrounded by 50 people that look like GQ cover models, devoid of any acting skills or abilities.

You're exaggerating but you're complaining about what's seen in almost 99.9% of movies released these days. Almost every film is filled with good looking actors. Hello. Brad Pitt, Tom Cruise, and Angelina Jolie? They star in movies in which we cheer for them even though they all look like models. This is a weak complaint for the film. Oh, and you can say the same for the Scream movies. Most of the cast looked like models as well.

Oh you mean all the quick little jumps and fake scares that could be seen from a thousand miles away?

Serious performances? More like s*** performances from people who never acted before. What did they do to cast this movie, flip through a fashion magazine and call up the models' agents?

Um, I don't know what you're idea of what a supermodel looks like, but like all of Michael Bay's remakes, 90% of the cast looks like models. Oh, okay, TWO whole emo/goth people were the exception.

Take note, people like Pitt, Cruise, and Jolie took years, if not decades before they had break out roles and were taken seriously. I highly doubt any one in this movie will reach the level of fame that those people you listed did. And unlike the cast from "Scream", these models had NO talent.
 
Seriously, man, we know you have a major hard-on for horror movies, but you need to accept that NOT EVERYONE OF THEM ARE GOOD!

There were 5 teens, or victims, in the entire movie the film focused on.

Big yip, so only 2 were emo/goth. If this movie was as serious as you claim it to be, they should have all been plain looking. Instead, most of them are pretty, rich kids. The movie should have been called "The CW Moves To Elms Street".
