IT STARS, WAS CO-PRODUCED and CO-WRITTEN by SOMEONE WHO USED to BE RELIABLE for ALWAZE MAKING MOVIES THAT WERE AT LEAST INTERESTING CHOICES. SO WHY IS the LATEST JOHN CUSACK  MOVIE GETTING EVEN WORSE REVIEWS THAN UWE BOLL's POSTAL (WHICH OPENS the SAME WEEKEND)? 

MAYBE BECAUSE IT CO-STARS NO LESS THAN FOUR FORMER RAZZIE® NOMINEES and/or "WINNERS"... MAYBE  BECAUSE IT CASTS FOUR-TIME PREVIOUS RAZZIE® CONTENDER HILARY DUFF AS an ARAB POP STAR...and MAYBE THESE MANY MYSTERIES (and MORE) WILL BE SOLVED WHEN WAR, INC OPENS in THEATRES... and THEN DEBUTS on DVD a MERE FIVE WEEKS LATER!

OKAY, RAZZIE® FORUM MEMBERS, THIS IS WAR...INC. ---

FIRE AWAY!!!! 

DUFF: "Which do you think would be more painful? Dropping this scorpion down my pants...reading my reviews at RT...or waking up to find out I'm a RAZZIE® nominee again next January???"

The IMDB rating doesn't look too bad, though. And the plot looks interesting (though Duff as an Arab superstar seems very stupid)

The listing for this on the front page of the Razzie website suggests it's getting worse reviews than Uwe Boll's Postal. Fearing that the universe had spun out of alignment and the apocalypse was approaching, I went over to RT to confirm the facts. While War, Inc was rated lower than Postal earlier this week, the universe is now back in alignment: War Inc still has a Razzie-worthy rating of 22% positive, but Postal is now lower, with a 17% favorable number...

Guess I can stop stocking up on canned goods, duct tape and batteries!

Nobody LUVS movies more than ME!

I still haven't seen the movie but (even thought he gave it a bad review) at least Richard Roeper said Hilary Duff is actually good in this!

I'm dumbstruck about this movie.  I agree with HeadRAZZBerry--even when John Cusack is in what (for him) would be a lousy movie, it's at least been an interesting lousy movie.  It's incredible to me that the Razzies are even talking about him...but here he is!

Nice bellybutton on Miss Duff. Wait a second, if she's an Arab pop singer, shouldn't she be covered from head to toe?

I actually saw this today and found it was really funny. Hilary Duff played again type, and actually delivered a great performance. Everybody else did a great job. *** 1/2 stars for this movie!

BTW, the movie's a satire of the Middle East, so a little over-the-top casting is,, I feel, necessary for this kind of genre.

War Inc. has raised its tomatometer, while "Postal" has shrined.

War Inc. = 31% fresh
Postal = 9% fresh

I just saw this now and I have to disagree. This movie was actually very good and very funny. I really think this should be taken off the forum because it isn't bad. And Hilary Duff is also very good. It was a little awkward to watch the things they had her doing because of who she is and what her reputation is but this is her best performance to date and neither she, nor this movie, deserve consideration for a Razzie this year.

RESPONSE from Head RAZZberry: It is our policy on The Official RAZZIE® Forum to never "remove" any discussion or thread. Individual postings (like the jerk who keeps trying to use our Forum as free advertising to sell sports shoes) we reserve the right to delete -- But complete discussion threads, no.

Your disagreement with this particular film's inclusion has been duly noted, and it does not look likely to get much consideration come year-end...

Yeah well I didn't really mean to delete it. I just meant it shouldn't have started. That's all.

Richard Roeper said that Hilary Duff wasn't the movie's biggest problem.

And when Hilary Duff isn't your biggest problem, you know your movie is in
the crapper.

He didn't say she was a problem at all. He said that she was good in the movie, which she really was.
