We need five.  One action film, one drama, one comedy, one romance, and one horror flick (or any combination of those genres).

This category could be easily split into Prequel/Sequel
and Remake/Rip-off

G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra was one of the worst
films I've ever seen. I've also heard from a reliable
source that Dragonball Evolution and Street
Fighter
were terrible... of course, I didn't need
someone to tell me that, but I may break my "see the
movie first" policy in regards to that...

Then there's Alvin and the Chipmunks: The
Squeakquel
(or however that last word's spelled) that
will definitely make my list without me seeing it.

My ballot for this list will probably look like this:
1. G.I. Joe
2. Alvin and the Chipmunks 2: The Squeakquel
3. Saw VI
4. The Twilight Saga: New Moon
5. Hannah Montana: The Movie

Yeah, no disrespect to the Forum itself or its contents, but there are times when I could eat dinner, shower, shave, brush my teeth and be in bed in the time it takes to look up certain threads and/or post replies to them.

As for us "needing" one comedy, one action, one drama, etc. we don't "need" anything other than just five choices. All these movies suck regardless of what their genres are. But by the looks of it, the final five are all going to be action movies .... and "New Moon." 

RESPONSE from Head RAZZberry: I, too, am often frustrated with how slowly certain functions of our Forum work. We are unsure what the problem is (we've been reassured it's not the volume of material itself) and are working to see what can be done to speed things up a notch...

Just out of curiosity, how many nods are gonna be under each category on the nominating ballot?  While you give me the answer I'll throw my Top 10 Signs You're Dealing with a Bad Film Adaptation:

10. The title ends in "Movie".
9. You look at the screenplay and say, "Seriously!?"
8. It's based on something absurd.
7. A familiar name or face in the trailer makes the audience shudder.
6. There is no preset plot in whatever it's based on.
5. On opening night, it's met with jeers.
4. It's a victim of its own publicity campaign.
3. No one knows it's coming out, therefore it doesn't make much money.
2. It garners an RT rating of less than...I don't know...25%?
1. It's part of an annoying franchise that turns moviegoers into morons.

Geez, Louise Miguel...just list your choices.

Meanwhile, I don't think Stink Panther 2 is getting nearly enough disrespect here. I know it came out last February and the pain has largely worn off by now, but I suggest (with all due respect to the misery it will create) another viewing by the voters. It may not win, but it should be a cinch on the nominating ballot and probably deserves a spot in the final 5 as well.

I could be wrong, but I think he was just listing criteria.

Say, why isn't Obessed on here? Wouldn't that qualify as a rip-off of
Fatal Attraction?

Obsessed is such a horrible rip-off of previous movies (Fatal Attraction and The Hand That Rocks the Cradle) that it should be on this list.

Since the first ballot contains 12 movies, here's the 12 I'd recommend:

Alvin & the Upchucks 2
Dragonball Evolution
Fame 2009
The Final Destination
Friday The 13th 2009
Land Of The Lost
Obsessed
Pink Panther 2
Saw VI
Street Fighter 2
Transformers 2
Transylmania

Having said that, I join with the others to split the categories again.  There are three reasons for this. 

One, we have at least 12 contenders that are prequels/sequels and at least 19 contenders that are remakes/ripoffs, so you have enough to do it.  Let me demonstrate:

Prequels/Sequels:
Alvin & The Upchucks
Angels & Demons
Fast & Furious
The Final Destination
Halloween 2
Land of the Lost
Pink Panther 2
Saw VI
Street Figher: The Legend of Chun-Li
Transformers 2
Twilight: The New Moon
Underworld: Rise of the Lycans

Remakes/Ripoffs
A Christmas Carol
Dance Flick
(aka the Wayans Brothers Give Selzterberg a Year Off)
Dragonball Evolution
Fame 2009
Friday the 13th 2009
Ghosts of Girlfriends Past
GI: Joe
Hannah Montana: The Movie
A Haunting In Connecticut
Knowing
Last House On The Left
Law Abiding Citizen
Obsessed
Old Dogs
Sorority Row
Spread
The Stepfather
Transylmania
Whiteout

Two, you give more movies a chance to get the drumming they deserve.

Three, we have waaayyyy too many prequels/sequels/remakes/rip-offs coming up in 2010.  I haven't counted, but there may possibly be enough to split the category into three categories if [HA HA I said "IF"] those movies are bad enough.  So, by splitting the category early for 2009, you'll serve notice that for 2010, the Razzie members are paying attention and have their shredders on the ready.  We'll be telling the movie industry:  "You wanna do prequels/sequels/remakes/rip-offs some more?  Hey, we'll be more than happy to oblige. . . ."
