Isn't David Hasslehoff going to be in "Anaconda 3"? If so, than that would be awfully awesome. What's he gonna do, sing to the anaconda until it strangles itself with it's own tail?

Response from Head RAZZberry: Good New/Bad News -- Here's an IMDb LINK to read production info about ANACONDA 3, which will feature David Hasselhoff...but is being produced as a made-for-TV movie (meaning it won't be eligible for RAZZIE® nominations, which both of the previous ANACONDA films got).

Wow, one third of the films listed are RAZZIE contenders. I know it's January, but that is one awesomely awful ratio. And that doesn't include The Killing of John Lennon or Running with Arnold, both of which are supposedly cinematic duds. Also, early word on the new Veggietales movie is not good, as this Village Voice review by Ed Gonzalez exemplifies. But Ed always tends to be pretty harsh.

Moviegoers have already had a really bad month (Jan 2008) so far this year, but they may be up against a really bad weekend (25 Jan 2008) coming up.  We're already talking about Rambo and Meet the Spartans, but early word on How She Move isn't good, and Untraceable features torture as part of the serial killer's M.O. 

So, it's possible all four wide released movies may all be poor to bad.

I saw on Rotten Tomatoes that How She Moves has got 80% so far which suprises me considering it looks every other dancing film that come out before it.

It only has five reviews, one of them by Prairie Miller, who I'm beginning to not be impressed with at all.

Prairie Miller gave good reviews to "Blonde Ambition", "Rush Hour 3", and "Coyote Ugly" and bad reviews to "Atonement" (which, admittedly, was dissapointing), "Eastern Promises" and "There Will Be Blood". However, Miller isn't as bad as Fred Topel who gave good reviews to "Daddy Day Camp", "Gigli" (!), and "Showgirls" and bad reviews to "The Departed", "The Descent", and "300".

Am I the only one who hated 300?
I'll admit it's probably better than the Friedberg/Seltzer take on the subject, but is it really as dubious to negatively review 300 as it is to do the same to THE DEPARTED?

I liked 300, but I realize people hate that kind of movie, especially Iranians, whose ancestors are horrible misrepresented (of course, you could say the same about the Spartans being grossly misrepresented, too, for that matter).

However, I can't value the opinion of a critic who thinks trash is gold and gold is trash.  As you implied, a negative review of The Departed is out there, unless we're talking about a critic who thinks all films should be wholesome, family films. 

And we know Prairie Miller isn't like that, because she gave Showgirls a good review.

So, what can you say about a critic who trashes The Departed and praises Showgirls?

Okay, I'm coming close to being far more right about the four major releases than I thought I would be.

Untraceable has sunk to a 13% rating on Rotten Tomatoes.  HeadRAZZBerry, does this make it 3 movies released this weekend that are up for Razzie consideration?

After reaching an 83% rating with only a few reviews, How She Move plummets to a 70% rating among all critics and a 67% rating among top critics.  I don't feel this will ever sink low enough to be Razzie worthy, but I wouldn't be surprised if this one sinks below 60%.

I didn't mean to defend the critic, whose work I'll admit I'm not familiar with, it's just that when I the implication that it's ludicrous to denounce a movie like 300, I fail to be anymore convinced by whatever point is being made.

And yes, this is an exceptionally lame week for film releases. Here's to hoping it's only because it's January.

Although Roger Ebert gave Untraceable a good review, its Rotten Tomatoes rating is currently a dismal 14% after 84 reviews.  After watching the trailer and reading a few reviews, I get the feeling this is torture porn for the faint of heart.

I've been proven wrong about How She Move.  It retains its 70% fresh rating at Rotten Tomatoes after over 50 reviews.  It looks like there is a good dance movie at the box office (finally!).  However, I don't see it expanding beyond 1500 screens, because its per-screen-average is lower than one would expect it to be.

As far as RT ratings go, however, the same can't be said for Untraceable.  After over 80 reviews, it's holding steady at 18% rotten.  It's box office, though, is doing well enough.
