AS DECEMBER GOES FLYNG BY, WE ARE GETTING DOWN to the PROVERBIAL GRITTY-NITTY -- THAT TIME of YEAR WHEN WE NEED to NARROW the FIELD of CONTENDERS in PREPARATION for COMPOSING THIS YEAR's RAZZIE® NOMINATING BALLOT... 

AND the MOST LUDICROUSLY OVER-CROWDED GATEGORY THIS YEAR (NOT SURPIRISINGLY, GIVEN HOLLYWOOD's AVERSION to ANYTHING EVEN REMOTELY ORIGINAL in 2009) IS WORST PREQUEL, REMAKE, RIP-OFF or SEQUEL

SO, LOYAL FORUM FANS and POSTERS, WE ARE TURNING to YOU for GUIDANCE!

SHOWN BELOW as POSTERS ARE the MORE THAN 30 TITLES(!) CONTENDING for THIS DIS-HONOR (EACH w/a LINK to the APPROPRIATE FILM's MAIN FORUM PAGE, WHICH INCLUDES INFO on the FILM's BOX OFFICE GROSS, REVIEWS,  PROMOTIONAL MATERIALS and CREDITS).

FEEL FREE to BE ARGUMENTATIVE, HUMOROUS, OUTRAGEOUS  (and/or SIMPLY OUTRAGED) in TRYING to PERSUADE US WHICH DOZEN-OR-SO of THESE FOLLOW-UPS, FORE-RUNNERS and FABULOUSLY TALENT-FREE RIP-OFFS DESERVE a SHOT at BEING AMONG the FINAL FIVE as 2009's BERRY WORST... 

IN FACT, THERE ARE SO MANY CONTENDERS, WE WERE UNABLE to LIST THEM in a SINGLE POSTING (SEE CONTINUATIONS BELOW)...

I don't know if I can limit it to just five, but here's what I'd consider keeping:

Alvin and the Chipmunks 2, Dragonball Evolution, The Final Destination, Friday the 13th, Transylmania (obviously) Old Dogs and
Pink Panther 2 (did it really come out this year?).

The others, I don't really think are "bad." 

RESPONSE from Head RAZZberry: Why am I not surprised that you consider most of the choices "not bad"?? 

And, BTW, PINK PANTHER 2 was one of 2009's early/obvious RAZZIE® contenders -- It was released last February...

Well, I can't get the list down to only five, but the top contenders on my list (which also happen to be my top contenders for Worst Picture, too) are:

"Transformers 2," "GI Joe," "Dragonball Evolution," "Street Fighter: Legend of Chun-Li," "Friday The 13th: Part Remake" and "Fame."

I'll toss in my top 7:

Stink Panther 2: WHY STEVE, WHY?????

AAAAALVIN!!!!!!!!!

Land of the Lost: The TV series was lame...did ANYONE out there ask for a movie? NO!

Transylmania: As I noted in another forum, no matter how good this movie might have been, there is NO audience for it. It deserves a Razzing just for the stupidity of making it.

G.I. Joe: A full length film, and he didn't even bang Barbie...Razz it!

Old Dogs: let's teach it a new trick...accepting a Razzie!

Fame!: We'll remake this same film fooorever! Watch it go down in a flame! (feel free to use that one in the opening number )

Transylmania is currently at 0.0 on Rotten Tomatoes.
0 for 15 so far.
And the reviews are pretty funny.

Welcome to the board, ThatGuy. The guess here is that the reviews for Transylmania will all be considerably funnier than the movie. With only 15 reviews in, it is hard to say whether or not it will fall in our range, but I'm thinking it is definitely worthy or our consideration.

Chipmunks 2
Dragon Ball
GI Joe
Ghosts of Girlfriends Past
Transylmania
Old Dogs
Pink Panther 2
Street Fighter
and DEFINITELY Trannies 2

Tough work keeping it under 10 nominees

Here's my personal top 5 sh*t films. I didn't see them, but I know they should get mentioned:

The Jonas Brothers: The 3D Concert Experience
sh*tty music keeps getting pushed down in our throats on a daily basis. Here are the three examples. How the hell are guys with pubic hair-like hairstyles and very effeminate voices considered hot? I guess I'm not a 12-year-old girl.

The Twilight Saga: New Moon
What happens when the vampire lore becomes reduced to nothing but porn for 12-year-old girls who can't spell for sh*t, and furthers the stereotype that middle- to lower-class people are not HAWT? The only good thing about it? That hypnotic single from Death Cab for Cutie. That doesn't belong on the soundtrack.

Hannah Montana: The Movie
Like the Jonas Brothers, another example how the music industry has gone to the dogs. Let's not forget the star got her knickers in a twist because Radiohead wouldn't talk to her, and she threatened to end them. Let's not forget that when she encountered the Queen of England, her disgusting boobs were almost exposed. Makes you wonder where common sense went.

Alvin and the Chipmunks: The Squeakquel
You don't have to be Einstein to predict this film to be a bomb. The jokes are juvenile and obvious, Zachary Levi from Chuck got hypnotized into this mess and, worst of all, three amazingly talented comic actresses (Anna Faris, Amy Poehler, and Christina Applegate) seem to be erasing any good will I had towards them.

Fame
What happens when you take the original dance film and pander it to the High School Musical crowd. You get this.
You think you know, but you have no idea.

Do you think we can split the category into two like you did a couple of years ago?

Worst Remake/Ripoff

Dance Flick
G. I. Blow
Fame
Land of the Lost
Miss March

Worst Sequel/Prequel

Chipmunks Squeakuel
New Moon
Pink Panther 2
Transylmania (aka Dorm Daze 3)
Street Fighter: Legend of Chun Li

Now, Miss March is not among those on the list, but I believe that it can be considered a ripoff of the J. Geils Band song Centerfold.

Wikipedia Descriptions:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Miss_march
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Centerfold_%28song%29

Miss March: Eugene Bell (Zach Cregger) wakes from a four year coma to find that his high school sweetheart has gone on to become a Playboy Playmate.

Centerfold: The song is about a man who is shocked to discover that his high school crush appeared in a centerfold spread for a male-oriented magazine.

Sound similar?  I think so.
