THE UMP-TEENTH REMAKE of INVASION OF THE BODY SNATCHERS, 2007's INVASION TURNED OUT SO WELL THAT ITS STUDIO BROUGHT in THE WARCHOWSKI BROTHERS to DO a MAJOR RE-WRITE and RE-SHOOTS. AND WE ALL KNOW WHAT THAT MEANS... 

TOO BAD, THOUGH, 'CAUSE WITH NICOLE KIDMAN, DANIEL CRAIG and a BIG BUDGET, THIS COULDA BEEN a FUN RE-WORKING of an OLD HOLLYWOOD WARHORSE.

AND SPEAKING of POD PEOPLE, ANYONE ELSE THINK THE EXECUTIVE OFFICES of EVERY STUDIO in HOLLYWOOD RIGHT NOW MUST HAVE ROTTING PODS in the CLOSET? THAT WOULD GO a LONG WAY TOWARD EXPLAINING the EMOTION-LESS, SOUL-LESS CRAP THAT's BEEN HITTING SCREENS on a WEEKLY BASIS THIS ENTIRE YEAR...

Kidman: "My God...those pod people must eat an awful lot of fiber!"

Could this be Daniel Craig's first Razzie nod, Nicole Kidman's first Razzie nom as Worst Actress...and her second Worst Screen Couple nom?? 

Response from Head RAZZBerry: Paired with Will Ferrell in the lamentably lame recent remake of BEWITCHED, Kidman is already a Worst Screen Couple RAZZIE "winner"...

The film took too long to start promotions - the ads began like 2-3 weeks ago. Much like Lindsay Lohan's film I Know Who Killed Me. So there may be some bad reviews, and a possible chance for a Razzie nod. Who knows? Unless the Wachowski brothers can prove us wrong (they did The Matrix after all!).
You think you know, but you have no idea.

Daniel Craig...why have I heard that...BOND!  Why would the newest James Bond be in this?

Also, the Wachowski's weren't the original directors, and this film has been through major rewrites and reshoots...with an original release date of June 2006?!

Must I also begin to worry about the live action remake of Speed Racer (also a Wachowski Bros. film)??

For some reason, this movie looks a little bit like that awful Nicole Kidman movie, "Dogsville".

Can anyone  name five non-independent films this year that weren't  sequels, remakes, based on comic books or cartoons...well pretty much films with original characters??

I think that this was a once good idea gone completely wrong. By the time they brought in "damage control," it was to late!

I think I'm going to see this movie this week. Looks great, and I liked The Faculty, which was also inspired by Invasion/Snatchers...

One thing for sure...it already has one strike against it: It's not being released for pre-review to the critics. And we all know that is not good!

I should have elaborated that was the only exception to the rule...but other than that, please name another movie without press screenings that has not out right disappointed...

Craig actually made this first, before he got the job as the new James bond -- he found out he had gotten the Bond gig right in the middle of filming this movie. They had to hold filming a couple of days so Daniel Craig could attend the press conference announcing him as the new Bond.

This also tells you how long this film has been in the can -- well before they brought in Neo and his gang to do damage control on this sen-less remake.

Actually, it is being screened. It's sitting at 16% at Rotten Tomatoes.

It looks like it's going to be another RAZZIE nod for Nicole Kidman, and this time, it's going to be a Worst Actress RAZZIE nod, and perhaps another Worst Screep Couple as well.

I can just see the worst director nomination for Hershbiegel "with unasked for assistance from the Wachowski's."

Ok, it has been shown to the critics...which makes you wrong. And I think you might need to reconsider not to nominate this as a Razzie contender because all I've heard about this film was okay and decent, not any worse.
