WHEN WE SAW the R.T. NUMBERS on THIS FILM (LINK) WE HADDA WONDER: DID HASBRO PULL a "PIA ZADORA/GOLDEN GLOBES" MOVE to GET THEM??  

HERE's WHERE to OFFER YOUR THEORIES on HOW a MOVIE BASED on a BOARD GAME -- and STARRING BOTH the LUMMOX from JOHN CARTER and POP DIVA RIHANNA in HER "DRAMATIC DEBUT" -- COULD GET ANYWHERE NEAR a 50% POSITIVE NUMBER at R.T.  

MEANWHILE, HERE's the LINK to CHECK OUT Ye Olde Head RAZZberry's FOTO FUNNY on BATTLESHIP...

Wow! A Forum already?!  

This movie was directed by Peter Berg, a director whose quality depends on the material he's given.  

It stars Taylor Kitsch (from JOHN CARTERAlexander Skarsgard (from Vits Award nominee for Best TV Series TRUE BLOOD and last year's STRAW DOGS remake, on which I remember requests for a Forum), Razzie nominee for Worst Couple Brooklyn Decker, 4-time Vits Award nominee (including Best Singer) Rihanna in her theatrical film debut (she played herself in BRING IT ON 3) and Vits Award nominee for Best Movie Performance (for UNKNOWN) Liam Neeson (also from WRATH OF THE TITANS). I sense that at least half of these people could be in consideration.

Come on, that's not fair. You haven't seen it. Why shouldn't it deserve 50%? PIRANHA 3D got about 80%, because critics said "It was everything I expected". Also, PLAN 9 FROM OUTER SPACE* got 65% because critics said "It's the best bad movie ever".

And, in your take** you said critics were too kind on THE 3 STOOGES. Have you even seen that movie?

*I saw it yesterday, and my opinion was the same as I had for GLEN OR GLENDA.
** Also, I thought you said your takes would only be Foto Funnies until the award ceremony was over.

Like I said before elsewhere, even a lot of the positive reviews for this admit that it is stupid.
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

Had to move this over from Dun-Ida's member-started discussion over to here. Here is what I thought should be in consideration from this film: 
 
Worst Screenplay / Jon & Erich Hoeber 
Worst Prequel, Sequel, Remake or Rip-Off / Rip-off of TRANSFORMERS 
Worst Director / Peter Berg 
Worst Actor / Taylor Kitsch (Also for JOHN CARTER -- if it gets nominated)
 
And last but not least...
 
Worst Picture
 
NOTE: These nominations may change, so I'll let you know if that happens. 
 
SchumacherH8ter: About Liam Neeson's role in this, I thought it was rather small, decent and thankless. Although, we can still consider nominating him for Wrath of the Worthingtitans.
 
If you have any questions, suggestions or complaints about my nomination suggestions, please let me know...

I think some strange unexplained phenomenon happened, and a revelation came to the critics to make their reviews more generous. Ever since April Fool's Day, critics have given merely "below average" reviews to movies we thought would crash and burn. First American Reunion, then The Three Stooges, now this! My first instinct is that Hollywood got word that more people cared about reviews than ever before, and they bought out half the critics for windfalls to write positive reviews and make bad films get mixed reviews.

Meanwhile, back in December 2000, Dungeons and Dragons got terrible reviews, and was selected as a likely RAZZIE contender. I put it at #22 on the Bottom 40 Films of 2000. So... Correction: This is at least the second board game to film adaptation. Adam Sandler's Candy Land will be the 3rd.

If they end up defeating the aliens by shooting giant red pegs at them, I'd say this film should win an Oscar Big smile

Saturnwatcher: I see what you did there. Besides, I saw this a whole month in advance, way before any of you guys, so I already know what happens!

I knew there would be a Razzie discussion on Battlesh*t. Yeah, it's just another Transformers movie minus the Transformers name, and minus Michael Bay.
Pictures move, do they?

The only thing about this that might be good is the eventual/inevitable Robot Chicken parody.
