Well, I'm back and it was... not completely horrible. It's still crap, but it's not unwatchable like the other ones. It has what is easily the best scene in all of the Twilight films. It's very awesome and not just "awesome compared to the rest of the movie", I mean actually awesome! Here's the scene that's so great: the final battle. It's a f*cking blood bath. Several "important" characters like Carlisle and Jasper get beheaded. Seth (that annoying werewolf that Jacob hangs out with) gets his neck broken and Leah (the Meg Griffin of the werewolves) falls down a chasm. The Volturi get the worst of it though. Almost every Volturi gets beheaded, with one getting his upper jaw ripped off. Dakota Fanning gets eaten alive by a wolf. And Aro is beheaded and set on fire. Sure the film sh*ts itself afterwards by revealing that it was just a vision from Alice, but still.
 
The acting is still crap, with only Michael Sheen coming out unscathed. Bill Condon's direction is great, something I thought I'd never say about a Twilight film.
 
For your consideration:
 
Worst Actress: Kristen Stewart (also for SWATH)
Worst Supporting Actor: Taylor Lautner
Worst Supporting Actress: Maggie Grace (also for Lockout and Taken 2)
Worst Screen Couple (if we keep it): Taylor Lautner and Mackenzie Foy

That being said, I wouldn't mind if this got any other nominations (except for Condon and Sheen). I'm not sure if HeadRazz would consider Lautner lead or supporting and I won't mind if he's placed in the lead category.

Well, that review wasn't helpful. I think I'm going to have a simular reaction to Matt.
I'm equally unsatisfied with Travers' review, even if it's rotten. He might be right, people are so happy that it's finally over that they don't see how bad it really is.
Good thing is, sounds like Dun-Ida is right, Lautner and the little girl could go up for Worst Couple.

EDIT: This review me likey. Makes me almost want to watch it. 2/10

What about Ashley Greene, who was also in THE APPARITION?

Now we're talking! It would be great if "The EPIC Finale" fell below the rating of Eclipse.

Recently watched this movie to see if it is Razzie worthy. It is! Here's my list of categories for which this movie should be nominated: 

Worst Picture: I'm not convinced this is any better than the four previous movies. This movie's various features are just as bad as those other Twilight flicks. 

Worst Actor, Robert Pattinson: He still gives a wooden performance. This combined with his unconvincing acting in Bel Ami makes him eligible for nomination. 

Worst Actress, Kristen Stewart: Her alleged acting is still expressionless, even when she's "angry". When this is combined with her lead performance in Snow White and the Huntsman, she should be on everyone's shortlist of nominees. 

Worst Supporting Actor, Taylor Lautner: Having muscles doesn't hide his pedestrian performance. 

Worst Prequel, Remake, Rip-off or Sequel: This is a no-brainer since it's also eligible for Worst Picture. 

Worst Screenplay, Melissa Roserberg: The script is just as stupid as in the previous movies. It's stupid because I was laughing AT the dialogue. 

Worst Screen Couple: 
Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart. They're eligible because of their combined bad acting. 
Taylor Lautner and Mackenzie Foy are also eligible. Really? An adult is "soulmates" with a little girl? Yuck! 

Worst Screen Ensemble: This is also a no-brainer. Bad acting combined with bad couples makes the cast eligible for this award.  




Directed by Michael Bay and M. Night Shyamalan comes...a movie guaranteed to win Razzies!

I know this isn't technically a review, but it's funny enough.

R.T. (50-60%): "It might be the most enjoyable chapter in the saga, but that won't be enough to make it worth watching for filmgoers who don't already count themselves among the franchise's converts".

Now I can't decide if Breaking Dawn Part 2 is off the table for the RAZZIES? 30-40 reviews flooded in overnight, but they was only enough to drive the approval rating down to a still "fresh" 63 percent. The mean review average is down to 56% on Metacritic, and because the majority of reviews there are in the yellow, I conclude most of the reviews from this morning are average. I'm hoping for our sake that the reviews will dip under 45% approval, meaning "average" -- that way, this won't be considered better than The Three Stooges. But perhaps the most important thing is that this hasn't dipped under numbers for The Twilight Saga: Eclipse yet, so it would be a really bad idea to put this on the ballot for Worst Picture at this time. Of course, unlike Eclipse, which had no negative reviews on Metacritic and equally as many good as average reviews, Breaking Dawn 2 already has 2 negative reviews and a few more average than good, so this'll most likely sink below Eclipse's level by the end of the weekend (November 19).

Actually, some of the critics that like this freely admit that they hated the previous 4. And some of the more respectable (and by that I mean they would never get paid by studios) critics are also praising TSBD2, saying that it's good because it's different from the book. Yes, I can see why that would be a good thing! Unfortunately, it may also mean that the box office results will be different, because God forbid you ever change a tiny detail and upset the "Twi-Hards".
