If I made a list of 20 People Who Should Leave the Film Industry Forever, Jason Friedberg and Aaron Seltzer would definetely be on it!

I hope this movie's release helps boosts the number of votes for Epic Movie in this year Razzie balloting.

I don't understand why these guys feel the need to focus their film's outline on a single flick like 300, it's not as if they will let it limit their parodying to the elements of that film alone (as we can see in the teasers).

What's really distressing about these films is the amount who are likely to go see it. Hollywood comedy of this ilk has been crippled so badly in recent years I fear future generations won't be willing to give truly humorous films like Naked Gun and Airplane! a chance because of the severely awful frequency with which these films are appearing, ergo ruining the reputation for these kinds of movies. And there will of course be an unjustly large audience for this film because of the existence of far too many people who have concluded two things:

  1. Pop culture references = comedy
  2. The quantity of attempts at humor in the film are of greater importance than the quality of said efforts.
It's sad really, to see cleverness and wit forsaken in favor of the lowest common denominator style we are witnessing dominate films such as this one. It's maddening to see that this is the result of the American publics choices in movies to pay and go see. As much as I would like to pin the blame on on another source, the people at fault for this one are our nation's moviegoers. They have demanded, and the market has delivered.

Here's my "Movie" Formula that I posted on IMDB a little while back...


A couple folks thought I hit it right on the head, so here it is in it's own thread:

From what I've seen of most of the "Movie" movies, they all seem to follow the same formula:

A) Someone says or does something or looks vaguely like a character (or celebrity) from another, more popular film or media outlet.

B) Someone in the film explains the joke for the the slow people in the audience or actually flat-out REFERENCES the very movie it looks like (See, they're not ANGEL wings like that guy's from X-Men, they're CHICKEN wings!), and then...

C) SOmeone gets hit in the head, kicked in the crotch, dismembered, is given the finger, makes a d!ck joke, etc.

D) Awkward intentional pause, allowing the audience to recover from what was surely a bout of gutbusting laughter.

E) Steps A-D then repeat every 45 seconds or so.

That's about right, isn't it? The worst parodies, like most of these "Movie" movies, try to tell you they're funny because it was funny in this other movie, and you LOVED that movie, so this must be just like that one, right? Sorry, ain't happenin'.

It IS possible for a movie to be a parody and still have a story of it's own without having to break the 4th wall and remind you what it's making fun of. For instance, "Walk Hard" pokes fun at more serious films by being smarter than a lot of them and making fun of the conventions and themes rather than outright saying "Hey, remember that scene from 'Ray'? This is LIKE that scene from 'Ray', so it's as GOOD as that scene from 'Ray', because you really liked 'Ray', right? 'Ray'!".

I think I may have had a dream last night that Aaron Seltzer suddenly died of a heart attack or something.  I'm not saying that I want somebody to actually die (that would be heartless and cruel), but it's just that even my dreams are critics of these films.

These movies are always so bad, and are always on worst lists. Maybe that's what they're going for every year: Hey, an award is an award (and it still brings attention to the movie). This does look better than the other spoof movies, but still I am not paying $8 just to get burned again. I will wait to rent it. Maybe it will be so bad its good -- like Dirty Love. That was so funny I can't stop talking about it to everyone -- So bad that it was so good. It really makes me feel good about myself when I am down. I am spreading the word at MSU: If you haven't seen Dirty Love, rent it!

Sorry about the rant. 

Response from Head RAZZberry: Apology not necessary -- And welcome to our Forum! By the way, http://www.razzies.com/forum/forum_topics.asp?FID=40 - DIRTY LOVE is the obscure supposed "comedy" that grossed all of $56,000 (we kid you not) and "won" four of our 2005 dis-honors, including Worst Picture.

The trailer for Meet the Spartans looks pretty desperate to me. Spiderman, Rambo and Spartans, what the hell directors? Can't you just spoof things pertaining to 300 or the Ancient World, not life and pop culture?

BTW, for those who hate Friedberg and Seltzer, here's a nice mock interview that pretty much hits it on the spot on why they suck:

He and his partner Jason Friedberg must be stopped."

Friedberg and Seltzer got off lightly for Epic Movie and Date Movie.  Those movies only drew one Razzie "win" last year (for Carmen Elektra) and two Razzie nominations this year (one for Carmen Elektra).  Perhaps they will finally get their due with Meet the Spartans.

You guys actually had a laugh in the trailer? I thought the Britney Spears joke was unoriginal, seeing how Britney Spears seems to be always mocked these days.

For Meet the Spartans, I was hoping for the directors to spoof films that were set back in ancient Greece and Rome. I mean, there's many films like that. They could have at least tried to spoof along with 300 Gladiator, Troy, Alexander, Spartacus, etc and develop an actual plot along those lines. But instead, Friedberg and Seltzer went on a crap spree dropping as much pop culture references as possible, like with their previous movies!

Owen Gleiberman, the only critic dumb enough to give "Epic Movie" a good review, better not give this a thumbs up, or whatever respect I have for him will dissapear.

Bad news guys: "Meet The Spartans" is the number 1 movie in America and it now has a 6% rating at RT. It wasn't from Gleiberman. It's from someone named Kam Williams. Further digging reveals that Williams gave "Dan In Real Life", "Team America: World Police", "Lord Of War", "The 40 Year Old Virgin", "Babel", and "Glory Road", a 0/4, "Resurrecting The Champ" a .5/4, "Things We Lost In The Fire", "You Kill Me", "Fracture", "The Matador", "Unleashed", "Superman Returns", "Inside Man", "Junebug", "Transporter 2", "Anchorman", "Apocalyto", "Walk The Line", "Master And Commander", "Catch A Fire", "King Kong", "The Illusionsit", "Flags Of Our Fathers", and "Hairspray" a 1/4, and "The Kite Runner", "American Ganster", "Cold Mountain", and "In The Valley Of Elah" a 1.5/4. He, also, gave good reviews to "The Invasion", "Rush Hour 3", "The Perfect Holiday", "Augest Rush", "Feel The Noise", "DOA: Dead Or Alive", "Georgia Rule", "The Ultimate Gift", "El Cantante", "Gray Matters", "Bewitched", "The Honeymooners", "King Arthur", "Taking Lives", "Against The Ropes", "Let's Go To Prison", "Tideland", "Freedomland", "Madea's Family Reunion", "Balls Of Fury", "The Quiet", "The Last Sin Eater", "In The Mix", "Aeon Flux", and "Date Movie". There is one silver lining: "Meet The Spartans" only made $6,660,000. "Epic Movie" made $18,612,544 and "Date Movie" made $19,076,261 in their opening weekends. Maybe, the people are getting tired of the crap.

The weekend isn't over yet.  It is estimated that Meet the Spartans made $6,660,000 on Friday.  Weekend estimates are coming tomorrow.

That said, moviegoers in the U.S.A. have a history of not championing the best movies at the box office.  Don't believe me?  http://www.boxofficemojo.com/yearly/chart/?yr=2007&p=.htm - Just look at the top 4 from last year .  Are those really the four best movies of 2007?  No!  We just wanted to see them.

Who are these stoopid spoof fans?  They seem to exist, as they make these movies successful, but nowhere can I find any evidence of their existence.  And what does Carmen Electra as Spider(wo)man being fired by Trump (who loses his wig) have to do with the 300 based content?  CNN indicates that teens and young adults liked the movie, but I can't see those people enjoying this crap.  It's as if the Aaron and Jason fans are just an urban legend, like the Loch Ness Monster.

At the same time, who are these Paris Hilton fans?  And Rambo fans?

Well, I think Fantasy Movie may be the next "spoof" from Aaron and Jason.

My 11 year-old son desperately wanted to see SPARTANS, so we went on a Saturday matinee. My response?  While it was overfull with the usual groan-inducing visual and verbal puns, and the whole Pairs-Hilton-as-the-Hunchback thing did not work at all, it wasn't nearly as laugh free or lame as either DATE MOVIE or EPIC MOVIE.

We decided, as long as we were at a multiplex, to make it a double feature, so we also saw CLOVERFIELD. I must say, I was Berry Impressed. It's been ages since I found any "monster movie" as involving, exciting and original as this. And, of course, the movie-going public (after giving it a record-breaking launch) are deserting CLOVERFIELD in droves -- Its second weekend numbers were down over 65% from the first. If this lack of interest in good film-making is a reflection of American movie-goers' tastes, that goes a LONG way toward explaining why Hollywood makes three or four RAMBOs or EPIC MOVIEs for every one CLOVERFIELD that sneaks by their genericize-everything radar...

I was blown away by "Cloverfield". It was millions times better than "The Blair Witch Project". Unlike "Blair Witch", there was an immediate threat. "Blair Witch" was, essentially, three morons (one of them a Razzie winner) walking around while some old b/witch moved things. Also, "Cloverfield" didn't try to pass itself off as true. Everyone knew that "Blair Witch" was fake going in.

There another spoof movie coming called Super Hero Movie on March 28th here The Plot Summary from Coming Soon.net: Finally, the guys behind the outrageously silly "Scary Movie" franchise have used their own 'special powers' to spoof superhero movies. After being bitten by a genetically altered dragonfly, high school loser Rick Riker develop superhuman abilities like incredible strength and armored skin. Rick decides to use his new powers for good and becomes a costumed crime fighter known as "The Dragonfly." However, standing in the way of his destiny is the villainous Lou Landers. After an experiment gone wrong, Lou develops the power to steal a person's life force and in a dastardly quest for immortality becomes the supervillain, "The Hourglass." With unimaginable strength, unbelievable speed and deeply uncomfortable tights, will the Dragonfly be able to stop the sands of The Hourglass and save the world? More importantly, will we stop laughing long enough to notice?

The only thing keeping these two from getting the title "Worlds Worst Director Ever" is Uwe Boll. Sorry SchumacherH8ter, Joel isn't even in these guys league. Yes I know, he nearly ruined the Batman Franchise, I get that, but he also directed A Time Too Kill and Tigerland, which were pretty good movies. These three have yet to even make a movie that can be considered below average.

Now back to this movie (I'm using that term loosely), All i have to say about this movie is that on IMDB it stands at a 2, for a comparison, The Asylums Rip-off movie I Am Omega is at a 3.2... Nuff said, Nuff said.

I HATED "A Time To Kill", but I'll give you "Tigerland". The main problem I have with Schumacher is what he did with Batman. I was the biggest Batman fan as a child. He was my hero. Then I saw this. It was like discovering Santa wasn't real.

Rest assured. Superhero Movie looks much better than any of the films Friedberg/Seltzer has done.

1. David Zucker's producing (trust me, the PG-13 Scary Movie films aren't terrible. Anna Faris is still coasting)
2. Drake Bell's in it (he could be stealing Shia LaBeouf's thunder)
3. No Britney Spears/Paris Hilton mocking
4. From the looks of the trailer, it doesn't feel like a spoof, but an homage, a la Hot Fuzz.

I agree, though, about Meet the Spartans. Once I saw Nicole Parker (so very talented on MadTV), parade her astronomically awful Britney Spears impression, the conclusions were drawn. And why does Friedberg and Seltzer hire somewhat talented MadTV vets (Josh Meyers in Date Movie) to be in their sh*tty films? Sure, the show ain't in the pop culture britannica, but there are talents in there that deserve a sh*tload of good movies (including eternal gold mines Debra Wilson and Aries Spears).

And, really, enough with the Britney Spears/Paris Hilton sh*t already, huh? Britney Spears is nuts because we made her nuts with the stalkaratzi. Besides, I am sick of having her crammed down my throat by those creeps like their life depended on it.

I think you're thinking of another film. Any other film, really.

I'm not sure what one you're thinking of...but I'm positive that it's not this one!

We're talking Meet the Spartans right? Well, most of you dont find it funny, but for me, it's entertaining...

Let's put it this way, this movie was barely over an hour long. It's pretty obvious they're not trying anymore, just throwing a bunch of pop culture references in the meat grinder and shilling it out to us.

I saw this for free...and it still wasn't worth it!

Seltzer and Friedberg (or as I call them, "Schumacher's Appentices") next movie will be a parody of "Superbad", "Hancock", "Sex And The City", and "The Love Guru" called "Goody Two Shoes". The link to the story is called http://www.moviehole.net/news/20080402_superbad_movie.html - SuperBAD Movie

If "Disaster Movie" is as bad as I think it will be, I may have to change my name to SeltzerbergH8ter. This film only had four scenes that I found funny. 1.) Carmen reads a review this on Ain'tItCoolNews, 2.) Kevin Sorbo takes down Rocky Balboa (playing the uber-immortal) by injecting him with botox, 3.) during the end credits, Nicole Sullivan impersonates Ellen DeGenerous and says, when no one luaghes at her jokes,: "Wow, this is like the audience of 'Mr. Wrong'"., and 4.) the Dane Cook part. The reason I, especially hated this was because for those four funny parts, there was 37 failed jokes with each. The two that were most unfunny, were when the penguin attacked Leonidas, he said: "Say hello to Anna Nicole for me." and the Ghost Rider, which made me shout "What the f*ck?". This nominations for Worst Picture, Director, Supporting Actress (Nicole Sullivan), Screenplay, Screen Couple (Sean Maguire and Carmen Electra), and Remake or Rip-Off.

I was reading a dvd review of this and discovered something rather sad. 20th Century Fox gave the duo 30 mill to make the movie and released it widely. However, Fox has also helped develop Idiocracy, a film which actually included talented and well respected actors (Luke Wilson, Justin Long, Terry Crews, Thomas Hayden Church) and also made by Mike Judge who made such shows as Beavis and Butthead and King of the Hill and made the cult movie Office Space. However, this never got released to more then 130 cinemas and got about 443 thousand back from a ten million budget.

I know. People should watch "Idiocracy." It's not far off from being a documentary, in my opinion.

Fox needs to stop funding retards like Seltzerberg and barely finding geniuses like Mike Judge. "Idiocracy" and "Office Space" hardly got any marketing. Judge has a new movie with Jason Bateman. I hope they market it well.

I can honestly say anyone who thinks that a movie that copies just about
every plot element of The Blair Witch Project to be better than it
has absolutely no good taste in movies.

"The Blair Witch Project" was done poorly. I didn't feel scared once through the whole piece of crap. Heather Donahue deserved her Razzie. "Cloverfield" was great I jumped a bunch of times.

Cloverfield began losing my attention after the first five minutes, few
characters that we care about fully establish themselves by the time the
terror occurs, and I will admit that I jumped several times while
watching it, but that's not the same as actually being scared,
something The Blair Witch Project was a master at doing in my opinion,
because it knows that leaving the terror to the imagination is scarier than
actually seeing it on film; any 4-year-old can tell you that.

Yeah, I knew that The Blair Witch project was nominated for Razzies but I never knew it won, especially for Heather winning because I thought she pulled off one of the best performances in these types of movies. Anyway, I recently saw Blair Witch and I loved it. Well, I also loved Cloverfield. I love both movie and I can't say which is better. I mean, Bliar Witch was great with critics but kinda polarized by audiences. Here's my review for it (8/10):

I finally saw this film since it came out in 1999 because I was waiting to buy the DVD for a cheap price. Well, I bought it after I saw "Cloverfield," "Diary of the Dead," and "Rec." Fortunately, that didn't ruin the film for me.

This film accomplishes a feat: It shows very little in the film, yet the film is quite scary! Like I said, very little is shown in the film. There is quite little violence and blood in the film and it's best to say everything in the film is left up to the audience's imagination, which I liked.

This film doesn't need creepy make-up effects for monster. It doesn't need violence and gore. It doesn't even need a scary soundtrack. It works the way it is. The performances by the three leads were fantastic and realistic.

Apart from it being a scary film and the true definition of a horror film, I thought the humor in the film was funny. You know, the jokes. This movie is like terror unfolding. It doesn't seem scary at first but the film slowly and expertly raises the tension and scares within each scene.

Overall, this is what I think horror films should be. It successfully scared me without showing me anything at all, which is pretty amazing, in my opinion. It doesn't need high quality special effects for some scares and it didn't need a big budget. This film is a must see if you like horror movies.

here's my review for Cloverfield (also an 8/10):

With an ingenious trailer from J.J. Abrams himself, along with clever marketing, all of us can assume that the film may not be as good as the trailer and marketing. Well, we were wrong. Not only is the film as clever as the trailer, it's also a lot of fun! It's nice to see a great film in January, don't you agree?

If you are still in doubt of seeing the film, let me continue on my review. Here's my take on the whole handy cam: Using this in the film makes it feel so realistic. During the action scenes, you feel like you're really there! I know a lot of people said this before but it really does! My only complaint is that it's sometimes annoying when the whole camera shakes around. Some might get stomach cramps.

As for the production values, they are really well done. The visual effects are amazing. The action scenes are unbelievable. What else can I say? If you're worried about not seeing the monster, don't. You'll see it. You'll see it up close. And I thought I would never say this but I really like the character development! I would never though character development could take place in a handy cam.

I'm also surprised to say, when we feel like we're there, that I actually felt scared. I had chills in my spine when something bad is happening. I laughed when characters popped up jokes. I felt sad when characters died. Also, there's no origin to this story, if you're looking for it. The performances by the unknown cast is above average. The most notable, is Lizzy Caplan, all the way.

It's just a big monster movie! So, the film is entertaining, funny, sad, scary, heart-pulsing...The handy cam was a great idea and the action great! What else would you want from a monster movie? This is the movie to see this week! Watch it now!

Oh, and [Rec] (which I explained in the Mirrors thread) is THE BEST POV camera type film. If you haven't seen it, watch that NOW! Oh, and the worst POV camera movie I've seen so far is Diary of the Dead. Now that was a horrible film with bad performances.

Did Friedberg and Seltzer create Disaster Movie so they would have two shots at Worst Picture and Worst Remake or Ripoff?  Meet the Spartans might be shut out from Worst Picture by Meet Dave, The Love Guru, The Hottie and the Nottie, and Postal -- but it still has a chance of getting nominated.

What's really distressing about these films is the amount who are likely to go see it. Hollywood comedy of this ilk has been crippled so badly in recent years I fear future generations won't be willing to give truly humorous films like Naked Gun and Airplane! a chance because of the severely awful frequency with which these films are appearing, ergo ruining the reputation for these kinds of movies. And there will of course be an unjustly large audience for this film because of the existence of far too many people who have concluded two things:

  1. Pop culture references = comedy
  2. The quantity of attempts at humor in the film are of greater importance than the quality of said efforts.
It's sad really, to see cleverness and wit forsaken in favor of the lowest common denominator style we are witnessing dominate films such as this one. It's maddening to see that this is the result of the American publics choices in movies to pay and go see. As much as I would like to pin the blame on on another source, the people at fault for this one are our nation's moviegoers. They have demanded, and the market has delivered.

Shut up, doofus.

Actually, that paragraph speaks the truth about what is wrong with Seltzerberg's movies. But I'm a little confused; is moat telling himself to shut up?

Because apparently more voting members saw "Love Guru" and thought it was worse.
