Anthony Hopkins is the second person (after Joaquin Phoenix about a month ago) to dismiss the Oscars (link).

Okay, if/when Red Dawn gets a Forum, two things I wanted to mention: 

1: Josh Peck is a much better choice for Worst Actor than Chris Hemsworth. 

2: Believe it or not, Tom Cruise's adopted son, Connor Cruise is in the movie as one of the fighting teens. Please please please please please please please please please please please please please please please please please please please please please please please please please please please please please please please please please please please please please please please please please please please please please please please please please please please please please please please please please please please please please please please please please please please please please please please please please please please please please please please please please please please please please please please please please please please please please please please please please please please please please please please please please please please please please please please please please please please please  please please please PLEASE consider him for Worst Supporting Actor. 

If you think people will not recognize the name, specify the fact that he is Tom Cruise's son on the ballots...  

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

To SchumacherH8ter: I heard you guarantee us that Lincoln will be a Best Picture runner-up. It's easy enough to believe, but even so, I also remember HeadRAZZ had it on his watch as possibly one of ours. Luckily, said forum never came to pass. Even if Best Picture runner-up is the furthest Lincoln can get, it still sends me the message that whatever criteria HeadRAZZ used to predict that Lincoln would suck... may be among the least reliable of his yardsticks.
 
To Vits: Can you possibly think of a more counterintuitive scenario than M Night Shyamalan turning down a film <because> of a twist ending? Anyways, about Casablanca 2... First there's that prequel to The Wizard of Oz coming by the end of winter 2013, now this! First Hollywood goes back 3-4 decades for remakes, then they start remaking films from 1/4 century or less ago, now they're working on prequels and sequels to pre-Victory in Europe classics! Way to repel young people from studying your early history, Hollywood!
 
To oiram: I've known about The Smurfs 2 for a long time now. I think the only way it'll dodge RAZZIE nominations come January 2014 is if Adam Sandler actually follows through on that diabetically stupid Candy Land movie!
 
To HeadRAZZBerry: Did I hear you were considering adding a subforum for Red Dawn [remake] as next week's Leftover Worst New Movie of Last Week? Now I've seen the 12% approval rating and 33% mean review average, and that's all I need to see to nail a remake as one of ours. If I have any suffrage on whether you add the forum, I vote a resounding YES.

I am going to step to Head Razz's defense on the preliminary suggestion that Lincoln might well end up in our court. I was pretty nervous about this film myself. The casting of Daniel Day-Lewis seemed a bit of a reach and it became even more worrisome when he didn't make a significant appearance in the trailers. As it turns out, Lewis' performance was pretty good, but it would almost be a stretch to nominate him as Best Actor since Abe Lincoln really wasn't much more than a supporting character in his own movie. The film will almost certainly get an Best Picture nomination although I would regard it as a longshot to win, and Lewis will get nominated as Best Actor. Again, he is probably won't win. The fact that this rather unremarkable film will go down as one of the year's 5 or 10 best says a lot more about what a dismal year it has been than it does about Spielberg's ongoing ability to bring a quality product the the theaters.

New releases here: TROUBLE WITH THE CURVE, and, CASABLANCA (remastered but digital). What should I do?

He said that maybe it was going to be bad, and he gave some good technical observations. Yes, he said that DDL's acting didn't seem really good, but judging a performance is actually subjective. Besides, when he talked about the HITCHCOCK trailer, he said that Anthony Hopkins' performance didn't seem to be good either, but that he'd wait to see the actual movie instead of saying that watching the trailer was enough.

I think this was around the time THE VILLAGE came out, which is when he started to loose followers after being dissatisfied with him using another twist ending. And so, he made LADY IN THE WATER without one. Yes, I know people hated it anyway, but that's another topic.

And I vote a resounding "No". That's right. I don't think it should be the Leftover Worst Movie of Last Week; I think it should be the Worst Movie of This Week. Unless HeadRAZZ is too busy (even though he already posted the forum poll and he still has from today to Sunday), I don't see why he should delay it. Next week, we have UNIVERSAL SOLDIER PART 4. Even if it's good, it should still be in consideration.

To saturnwatcher: Unremarkable?! Then why did Lincoln get in the mid-80s approval rating instead of 50%? And why is its Metascore in the 70's or 80's instead of 45%?

To Vits: HeadRAZZ did say he was pretty busy this weekend. Either that, or his Thanksgiving vacation began today and he won't be back until Nvb. 25 - 27. That's why he posted the Worst Picture poll two days before today!
 
P.S. What on Earth is the Universal Soldier series? And why should that get a forum here if nobody knows about it, let alone if it turns out to be good?! I voted for Red Dawn [remake] as next week's Leftover Worst New Movie of Last Week because HeadRAZZ already has obligations for Thanksgiving weekend!

Ah, yes. I forgot it's Thanksgiving today. Sorry, it's one of the few American holidays we don't celebrate here. Why would we, if it has to do a lot with your country's history? That being said, a lot of people say they would try having a big dinner and saying what they're grateful for.

The first one was about soldiers who are brough back to life. There are a bunch of sequels, where half aren't considered cannon. Actually, this new one is technically the 3rd. Anyway, 3rd and 4th installments are rarely good, specially when the original is barely remembered. Plus, it stars 3 actors from THE EXPENDABLES PART 2 (which gives it a bigger chance at a nomination): Jean-Claude Van Damme, Dolph Lundgren and Scott Adkins.

Now that you know it's Thanksgiving weekend, can you still wait until next week for HeadRAZZ to add the next RAZZIE forum? Because I for one don't give a flying fudge about the Universal Soldier movies. With just 8 days to release, less than 2000 people who visit Rotten Tomatoes are interested in seeing it. Even though Roland Emmerich directed the first installment, the Universal Soldier series is near completely unknown. Besides, I think our forums have had more than this year's fair share of limited releases. But most importantly, there are many far worse films on our radar this year than The Expendables 2, and a rider to The Expendables 2 isn't worth it. 

Conclusion: I stand by my opinion of Red Dawn [remake] for Leftover Worst New Movie of [sic: by then] Last Week, no forum for Universal Soldier: Day of Reckoning.

Although most users don't have THE EXPENDABLES PART 2 as a personal finalist for Worst Picture, most of us agree that it does deserve a couple of acting nominations. However, it does seem unlikely that, if any of the actors gets nominated, it would be those 3.

Acting icon Larry Hagman has died. He was known worldwide especially for playing the Dallas villain J.R. Ewing.
I was a big fan of his, and visited the South Fork Ranch set in 2005.
RIP

I keep reading that Hagman was mostly known for DALLAS. It seems people have forgotten about I DREAM OF JEANNIE. But what do I know? I never saw either show.

Here's a very amusing review of Liz & Dick, w/ a Razzie mention. http://www.avclub.com/articles/liz-and-dick,89016/
 
Also, quick update on my Howard The Duck review. I joined NetFlix yesterday, and one of the films I found there is Prince's Under The Cherry Moon, which tied with Howard for Worst Picture in '86. I'm making it a double review now.

Today is Casablanca's 70th birthday. All those Actors of the Golden Era who were in that classic film would be rolling in their graves if they knew what's about to come!

I forgot to say that, although a forum for RED DAWN is inminent, we should still keep an eye on THE COLLECTION. Not just because it's a sequel to a torture porn movie that nobody saw nor remembers*. But also because the first one was the result of a recycled storyline for a SAW sequel, so I don't see how the writers could be inspired this time.

*It also was nominated for the Vits Award for Worst Movie Actress, but I doubt that would be taken into consideration.
