I've finished re-watching the LETHAL WEAPON movies. I give them 5, 6, 4 and 7/10 respectively.

Not sure why Joe Pesci was nominated for Worst Supp. Actor.

Gus Van Sant in one of my favorite film makers of all time Cry very underrated filmmaker 

How come he won a razzie with his first nominations but it took years for Uwe Boll to finally get his ?

RESPONSE from Head RAZZberry: Yes, Gus Van Sant (usually) is a Berry Talented Film-Maker -- But he "won" his Worst Director RAZZIE® for one of the most wretched/pointless remakes of all time: The nearly frame-by-frame recreation of PSYCHO (IMDb LINK) an exercise in futility that added absolutely nothing to American film-making (and a project someone at Universal should have had the balls to say "NO!" to). It's also worth noting that PSYCHO was Van Sant's sole RAZZIE® nomination.

As for Uwe Boll, many of his early nominations were for smaller films not widely seen. While each of his Worst Director nods was well deserved, it was probably the combination of his having multiple titles (and being eligible for Worst Career Achievement) in the same year that lead to his finally "winning" a long overdue Golden Raspberry®

It's not about taking turns. Van Sant and Boll won based on the movies they made in those years.

To be frank, if I could've voted on these today, I would've voted for Roland Emmerich for Worst Director for Godzilla '998. That's probably too easy for me to say because it's the most remembered and dreaded one after 16 years. Godzilla '998 should've won more RAZZIEs in hindsight.

To HeadRAZZBerry: I keep forgetting. What are all the prerequisites to qualify for Worst Career Achievement?

To Vits: There's a middle ground between taking turns and the year-by-year basis. Each person nominated for one (or in many cases, two) films has to be judged only on what they make in each year. The exception is Worst Picture, where one single series of films has yet to win Worst Picture twice.

I have seen the remake to Psycho and it really is just as awful as HeadRazzberry described. Anne Heche was an awful choice for the Marion Crane role and Vince Vaughan an even worse choice for Norman Bates.

You do a Remake to outdo the Original. But there is no way you could make the original Psycho a better movie. This remake doesn't even try to be better because it seemed more like a "Copy and Paste" movie anyway.

Still not very convinced... And Uwe Boll wasn't nominated for his first (infamous) feature film, probably the most hated by everybody who that: http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0317676/

Sorry but I just can't imagine how Sly Stallone has won more razzies than him! :)

I've long wondered why House of the Dead wasn't nominated for the Worst of 2003 RAZZIES, yet his next 5 films, Alone in the Dark, BloodRayne, In the Name of the King: A Dungeon Siege Tale, Postal, and 1968 Tunnel Rats all got some. I figured that it had to do with people not being familiar with Uwe Boll (who operated from all the way over in Deutschland!) until after the Worst of 2003 RAZZIES had been held, and the voters finally figured out Uwe Boll's methods of operation in time to nominate Alone in the Dark for the Worst of 2005 RAZZIES. Though House of the Dead hadn't been considered for the Worst of 2003 RAZZIES way back when, it set the stage for Uwe Boll to win Worst Career Achievement award, was part of what earned him comparisons to a "German Ed Wood", and landed on the Bottom 40 Films of '003.

As for Sylvester Stallone, I think the problem was that after the successes with Rocky, Rocky II, Rocky III, and Rambo: First Blood from 1976 to 1982, there was a white-hot anticipation for Rocky IV and Rambo: First Blood Part II, both of which were set for 1985. He took out everything good about their predecessors, devolved into a mumbling voice, and let everyone down grievously. And many of the RAZZIE voters who've been with us since the year before that, when Rhinestone was second only to Bolero for worst movie of 1984, will never get over it. If you want to know why I wish they would snap out of it, take 2013 for example. He was nominated for Bullet to the Head and Escape Plan, but the only film he made last year which deserved it was Grudge Match. In that case, Robert DeNiro would've been a better nomination for Worst Actor because Luc Besson's The Family and The Big Wedding were each worse than Bullet and Escape combined!

The reason why Stallone has more Razzies than Boll is simple: Stallone has made way more movies than Boll. Also, most of Boll's films have gone direct-to-video, making them ineligible for Razzies.

As for why House Of The Dead went unnominated, it was an obscure bad movies with no real stars. It would have gone ignored if Boll didn't make Alone In The Dark, a bad movie starring people that the public has heard of.

Along with all of that, Stallone is for the most part a bad Actor. I've seen him in Rocky's 3 and 4, Over The Top, The Specialist and even saw a clip of his "singing" in Rhinestone. He's just... THERE. Sort of like with Madonna, his performances are delivered with this monotone voice. It's almost like he doesn't care more than half the time.   

Stallone has made a career out of one good movie, that of course being the first Rocky Movie.

Yeah but if you go to IMDB low bottoms you don't see a lot of people hating on Madonna's and Stallone's movie so much. I don't think they have many movies there, maybe they don't have any 

Whereas Uwe Boll has a lot! And they didn't make as many movies as Uwe Boll has, not to mention they were acclaimed by critics  in at least ONE or two movies they were in, that's not something I can say about Uwe Boll though... and still they have millions of razzies and Uwe Boll only has one under his belt (beside his worst career award). Extremely unfair if you ask me

Stallone has more than one good movie

I know many Uwe Boll films were staight to video (all his sequels end up there) but many other received a theatrical release and they weren't nominated
