Elizabeth Hartman and Judith Barsi are more talented and beautiful than Scarlett Johansson and Chloe Grace Moretz. Fact.

I just posted a forum designed for reserving topics on possible contenders over the course of 2014. Here's the link: http://www.razzies.com/forum/reservatiOns-for-memberstarted-official-forums_topic6411.html
 
Anyways, my F**k Yeah/WTF Were They Thinking Awards are coming back soon. I'll let you all know about the details for that later.

I went to the movies and saw THE WOLF OF WALL STREET. Even though I loved it, I was still surprised it made it to the IMDB Top 250 so fast. Anyway, I thought I'd participate in the debate on whether or not it celebrates the main character's crimes. I don't think it does, because there are a couple of scenes that make it clear that we're not supposed to sympathise with JORDAN BELFORT nor with his co-workers, like when JORDAN pays 2 cops to beat up a gay guy (he stole from him, but it was clearly an act of homophobia), and when his friend DONNIE literally eats a fish. There's also the entire last part. Without spoiling anything (unless you wanna look up what happened to him), let's just say the movie becomes very similar to GOODFELLAS*. Any thoughts?

The numbers for PARANORMAL ACTIVITY: THE MARKED ONES went up and down so many times I got dizzy! In the end, its reviews aren't that bad. INTERIOR. LEATHER BAR (which HeadRAZZ mentioned in the very first post) and THE BEST OFFER got similar reviews. The inelegible OPEN GRAVE is the worst new release.

There's already a forum for THE LEGEND OF HERCULES. There are also 2 new movies in limited release, and they both have foreign directors (just something I noticed): THE TRUTH ABOUT EMANUEL (starring Razzie nominee Jessica Biel) and COLD COMES THE NIGHT (starring Alice Eve and Bryan Cranston). They both have early mixed reviews. Remember that we're in January, so we have to prepare ourselves for a whole lotta crap!

*Now I won't fight with people anymore when I tell them that I find GOODFELLAS to be overrated. I can now say "Watch the much better WOLF OF WALL STREET" and you'll see what I mean.

Didn't Alec Baldwin and Donald Trump say they were running for President? Look at how that turned out.

I know that when someone wins a Razzie it's for a reason. But saying that Razzie winners should be banned from movies forever is a bit much don't you think? Would you say that about these people?

Yes -- I would agree that none of those people should ever be a movie again.

The DGA Awards tend to be very different from the Oscars. But this year, they've nominated Alfonso Cuarón, Paul Greengrass, Steve McQueen, David O. Russell and Martin Scorsese. Those 5 have been the frontrunners all along. Well, maybe Spike Jonze and Alexander Payne too. But Richard Linklater and the Coen bros. have barely received Best Director nominations this season.

Okay, so we are almost in the second movie week of January, awaiting the release of The Legend of Hercules...






So, anyways, since it was so obviously awful, the forum was made a week early, and because of that, we have more than enough time to take a look and consider next week, as we have four movies being released. Now, the question isn't so much "Which will be good?" The question is "Which one will not be bad enough to deserve an official forum?"

Also, I am only focusing on four movies, if you guys don't mind.

First, there is The Nut Job. It is an animated movie about a squirrel who finds a nut shop, and gathers a crew to steal all the nuts in it. Now, this movie looks like most of the jokes are going to involve nuts, which will get annoying after a while. Heck, I don't think they will even be that funny to begin with. While the animation may look good in some areas, in others, not so much. Also, Katherine Heigl is part of the cast, and since she has been blacklisted, this will probably be the last movie you'll see her name attached to in a long while.

Yes, she's been blacklisted:



The next one to talk about is Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit (I almost called the thing Jack Reacher .) This movie was supposed to come out on December last year, but because the people behind Wolf of Wall Street were hoping for Oscar potential, Jack Ryan got pushed back to January, and sometimes the fact that it got pushed back to this month speaks of how bad the movie will be. Razzie nominee Kenneth Branagh directs and plays the villain of the movie, so obviously this is not a high point for him. Chris Pine stars as the Jack Ryan character, and he has potential to pull it off, but the plot being represented in the trailers does not look anything special. Keira Knightley looks like she could have the potential too... the potential to annoy. Finally, we have Kevin "Was almost the new Stallone" Costner, returning to theatrical movies. If this video has the right information:



Then Kevin is essentially trying to be the Clark Gregg Agent Coulson of the movie. I have my doubts, looking at this, that it will take off in any way like that, and with movies that Kevin Costner is participating in through out the rest of the year, it looks like he could be returning to the Worst Actor ballot.

Another movie to look at is Ride Along. This movie is a buddy cop movie that stars Kevin Hart and Ice Cube. Mr. Cube has had highs and lows in his movie career, but I personally always found him enjoyable to watch. Kevin Hart is one of those guys that I never expected to have a movie career, especially when his first movies included Scary Movies 3 and 4, Superhero Movie, and Epic Movie...

However, he bounced back from all of that thanks to his comedy concert movies, which proved to be very successful, so I respect him for that. This movie, though, still has me doubting it will be good. They pretty much announced that there will be a sequel before there was even a poster for the movie, and even ignoring the fact it is a January release, the movie has SIX WRITERS!

SIX WRITERS!!!

Whenever you have that many writers in the movie, it is not going to turn out well.

Finally, the movie that has the potential of being the worst of the week is Devil's Due. Another found-footage horror movie, and right off the bat, the believability factor is gone by casting actors who have been in movies before.


Also in the cast is Robert Belushi, the son of Jim Belushi, and the nephew of the late great John Belushi.


The movie does not have anything new to it. It's like "Lets just put Rosemary's Baby in the found-footage genre" and that's all there is. And of course, since it is January release, it is guaranteed to be horrible.

So, which movies do you guys think deserves official forums the most?

Probably Devil's Due because of how unoriginal it looks.
