WE ALL LOVE THE 1972 ORIGINAL POSEIDON for ALL THE WRONG REASONS -- AND WE HERE at the RAZZIES WERE LOOKING FORWARD to THIS REMAKE LIVING DOWN to ITS PREDECESSOR'S STANDARDS. BUT IT DELIVERS ALMOST NO LAUGHS, and ITS SO-CALLED THRILLS...WERE JUST RUN-of-the-MILL...

Feel free to DISCUSS ...And don't be afraid to get your feet wet!

Well, I like Richard Dreyfuss and actually find Kurt Russell to be somewhat underrated, but yeah, I don't like this film's chances of actually being good.

This is yet another example proving that Hollywood has run out of ideas. They won't even  let Irwin Allen rest in peace. What is next...a remake of THE TOWERING INFERNO with Tom Cruise and Tom Hanks? Or is it a remake of THE SWARM with Tom Cruise and John Travolta? OR is it a remake of WHEN TIME RAN OUT with Tom Cruise and Nancy Cartwright?

Or are they gonna go back to Irwin's Pre-Voyage film classics like "Double Dynamite", "The History of Mankind", "The Lost World" or "Five Weeks In A
Balloon"?

Are they going to do a remake of BEYOND THE POSEIDON ADVENTURE
with Sally Field again?

Razz, please assure me that Tim Burton isn't actively working on a big
screen version of LAND OF THE GIANTS...

PLEASE!

I just need two Earth-shattering questions answered before I decide if I'm gonna go see POSEIDON this weekend:

1)   Stills from the film show someone singing -- Do we have to sit through a NEW version of "The Morning After"? Or are we going to be subjected to an entirely new song (which will hopefully qualify for Worst Original Song in this year's Razzies)...

2)   Do we get to see former child actor Kurt Russell die -- Preferably in a vat of flaming oil??  If his character survives, include me out!

Everything SUX!

Right now Poseidon's chances are not looking real good, between the early tomatometer reading being at 47% (http://www.rottentomatoes.com/m/poseidon/ , it was 30%) and one of it's main stars Kurt Russell talking down on it (Reading between the lines he just did it for the paycheck)I expect a not so good opening weekend worse than MI-3's not so glorious opening weekend.

Update: Tomatometer is back down to 31%, this movies chances are (excuse the pun) sinking fast

The premise for the original was flimsy already.  Add a former Disney stableboy and the usual modern day "effect-you-to-death" type of special effects and you got a Razzie nominee in the making!  (No, I doubt it'll "win"...too many stinkers in line for that!)

I still think Emmy Rossum will be good, at least. Besides, she can ACT!!!!

Just saw this on a Netflix DVD last night: What a disappointment! Boring, pointless and, even though it's a good 20 minutes shorter than the 1972 version, it seemed TWICE as long!

There was one clip I could see being used in the Razzies, though. Just after the tidal wave hit, the lady stowaway character asked Richard Dreyfuss: "How bad is it??"  To which Dreyfuss answered: "It's very bad!"

Looking at the 2006 Oscar nominees, this film's nominated for Best Achievement in Visual Effects, going up against Pirates and the other Razzie nominee, Superman Returns. Ok, this film did have good Visual Effects, but I still found it Berry Bad. While watching this film, it sorta reminded me of the weak Oscar winning film, Titanic, but instead, it was a carnival ship and not an ocean steamer.

I think Pirates will beat off Supie and this film for the Best Achievements in Visual Effects Oscar. Though, of course, everyone was disappointed with the ending to Pirates 2. Even I was disappointed with the ending as well.

I liked Emmy Rossum in The Phantom of the Opera, as well as another bad film, which should have gotten maybe a few Razzie noms, The Day After Tomorrow. That film looked a lot like a total disaster, as well as this movie.

Yep, she was good in The Phantom of the Opera for sure.

Speaking of The Phantom of the Opera, anyone heard of Gerard Butler's latest film? It's called 300, and it hits theaters and IMAX on March 9 nationwide. It's about a Spartan king, played by Butler, who leads his army of 300 Spartan soldiers against 10,000 Persians in the Battle of Thermopylae during the Persian-Greco War. I don't think it's gonna be bad, but I'm looking forward to go seeing that movie.

I know Butler's role in 300 looks pretty freaky for sure, but it will be pretty good actually. Not to mention, Frank Miller, who brought Sin City, one of my favorite films back in 2005, is working as a producer for this film.

Just saw this film like a couple days ago, and it wasn't really good at all. Ok, it did have pretty good visual effects, but that doesn't mean it's good at all. Watching this film just sort of remind me of one of the weakest Oscar Winning films called TITANIC, except for this film has a Cruisine, and not an Ocean Liner.
