I see this (Twilight) movie as Razz-able like the others, but I wouldn't go as far to make it a major candidate. The previous movie hogged up the nominations but thankfully didn't win too many.

I think the big name to Razz this year is Adam Sandler.  Supporting in Zookeeper, Actor and Actress in Jack and Jill, and...um...what should he be nominated for regarding Bucky Larson?

And Breaking Dawn Part 2 shouldn't be front runner in 2012, either...not when Aaron Seltzer and Jason Friedberg bring The Biggest Movie of All Time 3D (an Avatar "spoof") to the big screen.   


RESPONSE from Head RAZZberry: Sandler is one of the screenwriters (as well as a producer) of BUCKY LARSON, so he's "qualified" at least twice for that film...

I showed the Muppet posters to my Media Writing class and they thought it was funny. Also, this now has an RT rating of 11%! Could this be worse than New Moon?

NEW MOON was a slow book on it's own. The slow pacing in the movie didn't work because it didn't translate well from the book. 

Here, we have only half of a book, so the slow pacing might be more-so... Dead

I think this newest installment is a slap to everybody's face who thought an Oscar-winning director could save this franchise. I admit, I didn't rule out that possibility. 

Turns out we should have known better. What a mess! With that kind of source material, nobody would have been able to make a decent movie. Well, maybe Cronenberg could have.
I'm glad the franchise hasn't gotten any Razzies so far, because if they will, this is their year.

I predict that Breaking Dawn 2 will be on IMDB bottom 250.

If Cronenberg directed this, Nosferatu would pop out of Bella's womb like in The Fly!

If this movie stayed true to the book, Meyers has one twisted mind ==  and not in a good way.

That would have made the movie more watchable. I would be all in for that!

There are more haters, and if the CGI wolves and  the handling of certain action scenes in this movie are any indication of how the next movie will turn out, even more people will dislike it. Bill Condon has no clue how to do these scenes. 

Which shows again that winning an Oscar for one thing doesn't mean you're automatically good at another.

Meyer definitely has problems. But she doesn't seem to have a problem with Jacob "imprinting" on Renesmee -- and the fact that I know what that means shames me immensely!

That "imprinting" idea is out of this world, really. Why didn't Meyer just explain it as "soulmates"?   

However, in that case I have to give credit to Condon for making it not look as creepy onscreen as it sounds in print. He managed to downplay a few questionable subjects, like when that weird name was given to the baby. I don't want to give more spoilers away, but you can litterally tell when he tried to cater to his female audience, which was entertaining but too often over the top, or to cover up Meyer's unexplained storytelling, like how could the vampire get the girl pregnant in the first place, or how Bella wants the werewolf still hanging around even after she got married. She should have dumped the vampire and married the werewolf then -- would have saved a lot of problems!  

Some of those wolf themes had potential though, and there Condon failed on all levels.
But the problem with this franchise is (and always was) the weak source material. Additionally some of the dialogue in the movie is laughable, and some scenes were hard to follow if you haven't read the book. That's the screenwriter's fault though, and I won't focus my anger on the actors. 

I will take Kristen Stewart, who tries hard to cheese into the camera at every chance she gets and appear happy, off my Worst Actress list now. The acting has gotten better...

The concensus here in Chile seems to be average to bad.

As bad as the movie looks, I'm surprised Roger Ebert gave it a 2.5/4: http://rogerebert.suntimes.com/apps/pbcs.dll/article?AID=/20111116/REVIEWS/111119983

Ebert's review of New Moon is one of his best.
