Much like the classic "Go directly to jail, do not pass GO, do not collect $200" Monopoly card, this movie should get a "Do not be #1 at the box office, go directly to DVD, expect to be be all over the Razzie voting ballot" card...

I happen to like Beyoncé as an actress, and she has been good in just about everything I've seen her in (except "The Pink Panther"). She is maturing into someone who has talent, rather than encouraging everyone to just focus on her singing career.

Her song, "Halo" is the most addicting song. I will listen to it 10 times in one sitting. As for the movie, this is honestly the most anticipated movie I want to see so far. I need to see it. The previews look amazing and no, this is not sarcasm. This will be the best movie ever!

ROTFLMAO! When I read that I had water coming out my nose; I can totally picture Beyonce saying that.

Anyway, when I saw the preview for this, I thought that they were promoting a porno...and then when the action picked up, I thought, "Oh great, this is meant to be serious! This is gonna to be this year's Basic Instinct 2!"

Not all singers turned actors are created equal. Frank Sinatra and Barbra Steisand come to mind as two who excelled in both areas. Mariah Carey and Madonna both fell short. When it comes to acting, Beyonce is more Carey than Steisand. "Austin Powers: In Gold Member", nothing special, any black actress could have been in that role. "Dreamgirls", she was way overshadowed by Jennifer Hudson. "Pink Panther", she was far from being the saving grace of that movie. This movie ... looks like the hightlight will be a cat fight between her and Ali Larter. Ah, poor Ali. Ten years ago, she become famous for the whipped cream bikini, and now her career has ended up here. I watch this trailer and all I do is laugh. It's just "Fatal Attraction", minus the boiling bunny. Stick to the singing booth, Beyonce, let actual trained black actresses star in movies for once.

I even saw Beyonce give Ali Larter The Headbutt you usually don't see that in a chick fight in Movies and on TV

Okay, I don't really see women headbutting each other as legit excuse to run out and pay money to waste 90 minutes of my life for a movie that's already been done before 20 or 30 years ago. I could rent any number of low budget, indie flicks or downloaded clips off the Internet to see that sort of thing.

It's a pro-wrestling move. If you look up "Razor Ramon" it used to be his finishing move. I used to do it to freshman when I was in track in high school.

And I built up a tolerance is all.

How about a Jake The Snake DDT onto a flaming table covered with barb wire, broken glass, and thumbtacks? Hmmm, that sounds like something we might be planning for the Sly Guy and Madonna at the 30th Annual Razzies!

Wow, and I thought I was good at randomly derailing topics... suddenly this has turned into some kind of wrestling match. Although Beyonce getting slammed through a flaming table does sound like an interesting movie... If they do that, I'll be there.

Perhaps, they can take a cue from "Snakes on a Plane" and title the movie "Beyonce gets Slammed through Flaming Tables."

Also dEd, I think if you've built up a tolerance, perhaps it is time to get the doctor to increase the dosage.

Is Beyonce playing the up-and-comer? Or would it be Ali? Because if Beyonce is filling the role, perhaps it could be the rise, and fall (through flaming table) of an up-and-comer?!?

There aren't any critiques posted yet on Rotten Tomatoes for Obsessed.  They didn't screen this first?  Really?  I would have guessed it was bad, being such a rip-off (Fatal Attraction, Hand That Rocked The Cradle, etc.), but I wouldn't have thought it was THAT bad. . . .

"And Beyonce has climbed on to the TitanTron, and she does a flying Senton Bomb on Ali Larter through a shark infested table! OH MY GOOOOOD!!!"

But seriously, turning this movie into a pro-wrestling match seems highly logical. It's essentially what female wrestling is on WWE.

http://www.rottentomatoes.com/m/1207523-obsessed/ - The first three reviews are in at Rotten Tomatoes , all three of which were rotten.  We'll see if this holds true for the rest. . . .

I'll honor the first three critics simply for being first.

***************************************

http://www.brianorndorf.com/2009/04/film-review-obsessed.html - Brian Orndorf sez:

One of the many problems that plague “Obsessed” is the character of Lisa. Modeled after Glenn Close’s bravura turn in “Fatal Attraction,” Lisa, as interpreted poorly by the limited Larter, is a stormy ocean of psychological disease, only she never makes a salient point. With a film titled “Obsessed,” one would think a little naughty fire in the nether regions is enough to build a central battery of suspense, but director Steve Shill and writer David Loughery fail to offer the character a tangible point of view. Lisa is a stock villain character, parading around in high heels, providing zero motivation; she’s a cherry-lipped boogeyman meant to titillate and revolt, but the proper response to the role is laughter. Larter wildly overplays the sex kitten nonsense to a point of uncomfortable camp. And if the central figure of menace is a joke, imagine how unrelentingly goofy the rest of “Obsessed” gets.

*******************************************

http://www.themovieboy.com/reviews/o/09_obsessed.htm - Dustin Putnam sez :

1987's "Fatal Attraction," 1992's "The Hand That Rocks the Cradle," 1993's "The Temp," and 1995's "Disclosure" all come to mind as "Obsessed" plays out. One of those genre staples wherein a dangerous, unhinged individual becomes severely and, ultimately, violently fixated with another, the film is predictable, trashily entertaining time-filler. As helmed by television director Steve Shill, making his feature debut, and written by David Loughery (2008's "Lakeview Terrace"), there are signs in the first half that it could have been more than that, and this is why disappointment sets in. The villain of the piece—sexy, efficient, and, yes, obsessive office temp Lisa Sheridan (Ali Larter)—is treated in the first half with enough intriguing shades of sympathy that it is a shame the movie tosses away this potentially serious exploration into a sad, unhealthy mind in favor of climactic bursts of violence and a cheapening adherence to convention.

********************************************

http://newyork.metromix.com/movies/movie_review/obsessed-review/1113371/content - Geoff Berkshire sez :

The filmmakers had an interesting strategy for "going green" (and making the most of a low budget). They recycled sets from last year's horror movie "Quarantine" and the upcoming horror remake "The Stepfather."

*********************************

Okay, okay, that's not Berkshire's negative critique in a nutshell.  He summed up the movie in a single paragraph, and I didn't want to quote his whole verdict.  However, I felt the fact that the sets were recycled from one loser movie and are going to be used in what will doubtless be another loser movie was a factoid that the Razzies would want to know.

A shark infested table? That's pretty impressive. But what if it was a FLAMING Shark-infested table? There would be something truly epic!

As far as women's wrestling on WWE, I thought that was mostly about getting Hot women to wear as little as possible on national TV. ANd from what I've seen of "Obsessed" they unfortunately wear clothing... Myabe for the fight scenes they'll be dressed in practically nothing...

I thought for sure his strategy for going green would be to say that he recycled the script. Which is equally true enough.

But here we go... Flaming table, infested with sharks which are wrapped in barbwire, on to a bed of thumbtacks poisoned with the ebola virus, and the virus can shoot lasers out of it's little virus eyeballs.

Can we also put frikkin Lasers on the sharks, too? Also, I think we might need to fit a motorcycle in there somewhere, just for the hell of it.

Ok... so how about a compromise? We powerbomb her, through the shark-infested table that happens to be on fire, into a fridge that is underneath it, and then Nuke that fridge?

Oh I beg to differ. When the highlights of the trailer are a woman in a her underwear and two girls cat fighting, something which you can find anywhere on the Internet, it can be very easy to hate. It's being ripped apart at RT. Add this along side "Street Fighter: Chung-Li" and "Dragonball" as the first top contenders of the year.

Yeah, I saw that post, and I KNEW that you would be in before long to reply. S'why I had to wait, I wanted to see how long it took you, Almost hit 6 hours, which is a little longer then I had originally guessed, but still fairly quick all things considered.

This film was one of those films that I saw the trailer for, and was pretty much immediately turned off the film. It gave me the same vibe I got when I saw the trailer for "Perfect Stranger" that awful Halle Berry/Bruce Willis "thriller" from a few years back. I made the mistake of actually watching that one when it came out... and after getting that same feeling watching this trailer, I knew I had to stay away.

I'm a masochist when it comes to movies, but this one didn't even look awful enough to at least be somewhat interesting... glad I skipped it.

Hey, sarcasm! Wait... that was sarcasm, right? Please tell me that was sarcasm. Again, the urge to see a chick fight like this can be quelled by watching pro-wrestling. You're not getting Ali Larter sending a guy PG-13 pictures of herself to her boss, but the girls are probably as attractive, at least. And wearing less than Ali in those pictures.

Sure, it made close to $30 million this week, but next week, it will just barely make it into the top five. Yep, it's as one sided as a 500 lb. man on a seesaw opposite a 90 lb. weakling, this movie is ripe for a razzing. Seriously, if you want girl fights, stick to women's pro wrestling.

Shhhh. Don't go trying to inject reality into things, we've all seen how well that has worked in the past. Just because only 6 of the 21 reviews on RT are positive, doesn't mean that the critics hated the film. And just because it got a 3.6 on IMDB after tallying some 352 votes, that is obviously meaningless.

So very happy that Wolverine is coming next week to slaughter this movie.... and pretty much every other movie on the list...

Or don't mention the fact that IMDb has all HSM films, any titles with the name Hannah Montana, the Jonas Bros, and Beyonce, with very low ratings.

Yes, because no one goes to a message board and posts opinions who hasn't seen a movie. And message boards would in ABSOLUTELY no way be a great place for movie executives to "insert" people to talk up a movie. Yeah, stuff like that is just insane.

Not to mention, the people that hated the movie might not want to relive the horror they just experienced, and decide that the easiest route would be to give the film a simple rating, and then move on with their lives.

Best bet, is to stick with the RT critic consensus, and look at that, since you will get a relatively diverse set of views. And sometimes, you just have to realize, that just because YOU liked a movie, doesn't mean that everyone else has to. For example, I loved The Soloist, but I can accept that there are people that didn't. It doesn't bother me that RT has it listed with a mere 61%. I can understand that other people will have different taste in movies.

Or the fact that much like this message board only counts for a small percent of Razzie voters (or non-voters who post here just for the sake of arguing with us ), IMDb doesn't account for the entire movie going public. So, step one: put Beyonce into a fridge and nuke it, and step two: start writing "Obsessed" in every spot of the voters' ballots.

I just looked the IMDB forums for this... the first 5 pages. EVERY SINGLE TOPIC WAS NEGATIVE. If they weren't debating that it was a racist movie, the threads were about how terrible it was. This is the same crap you pulled on Watchmen. That's at least 2 strikes. Next time, I officially declare you permanently not-credible.

S-h-h-h, this is that "reality" thing I warned Michaels about. You have to tread lightly around such delicate subjects as the real world... it can have a very negative affect on people.

But, I checked in on this one, and went to the movie's website -- and it had nothing but good things to say about the film! So obviously, that means that it's the most SUPER-AMAZING-WONDERFUL-AWESOME-SPECTACULAR-TERRIFIC MOVIE OF ALL TIME!

...I suddenly feel horribly dirty.

My problem with moviewizeguy is that he's always citing sources that say the opposite of what he thinks they say... or so he says. I hope he doesn't pull this kinda stuff at school.
I'm sure you could probably find a select few who really liked it, and they probably all posted on IMDB... Although, I couldn't find those people. I'm sure you could find a select few who thought that C Me Dance converted them to Christianity, and now are in the running to be the next pope.

Every single IMDb posting is not negative. Honestly, if you saw the trailer,of course it'll make you make a negative thread about "interracial couples." All of the negative threads were obviously made by people like you who haven't seen the movie. You can basically see the trailer and imagine a troll post "this movie is racist!" like 845984687 new movies released each week.

You can't judge a movie by what people say in the IMDb forum. You don't know for a fact if people have seen the movie or not. That is why I don't trust IMDb -- anyone can post. That's why RT is a better source (and this movie is still a low rating with them).

PS: dEd, I'm surprised you waited this long to say MWG has no creditability. He's had more than three strikes by now, among them: giving "Disaster Movie" a rating higher than a 1, listing "The Ruins" among his top ten of 2008, being on his feet defending "The Happening", championing "Knowing" over "Watchmen", his idea of a good movie is one with a twist ending that "makes you think" ... and has good word of mouth ... and makes the most money, etc.).

Well, I have my reasons that you obviously ignored. Typical from idiots with low IQ's who try to find the easy way out to a discussion, using the same excuses all of the time. 

RESPONSE from Head RAZZberry: While many (if not most) of the participants on this Forum have disagreed with you and your opinions on a regular basis, moviewizguy, I believe they have done so respectfully and without (at least, for the most part) making personal attacks on your IQ or your worth as a human being. Your posting above, by resorting to name-calling and personal disparagement, suggest it is you who are taking "the easy way out." 

And, if it upsets you so berry much to be contradicted here on a regular basis, maybe it is time to question yourself about your own motives in constantly coming back for more abuse...

And once again, it's back to "It's not that I don't know what a quality movie is, it's that you people have small IQs!". The same excuses!? You use the same excuse time and time again, too. "Oh, look at the postings in the IMDb message boards, they can't be wrong". "Oh, the six people I overheard who liked the movie must mean EVERYONE who has seen it, liked it". "It didn't drop 50% in its second week, people must love it". Talk about going to the well time and time again.

I ignore your reasons? Here's your reasoning: you come to forum just to argue with us that these movies that are clearly worthy of our mocking are not, at least by your standards. And when we disagree with you, because we know better since we've been following the movie business for decades, you lash out with insults about our IQs. Now, it's not your IQ I'm insulting, it's your taste in movies. I say this time and time again. But like clockwork, you come back and defend these movies that although they may be "fun" or "entertaining", they are empty fluff and will be forgotten by next year.

So, I'm begging you, please just stop posting here. You can't convince us that these movies that we mock are good, or smart, or whatever. If you want to chat with sheepeople, stick with the IMDB crowd. Thank you.

No, MWG, I'm talking about people who have SEEN the movie and HATED it. Like I was saying, I think you've got selective reality disorder.
And I'm giving him ONE more chance. But if he's going to keep telling us that if we would just go to "x" site to see just how much people liked or hated a movie, and then the posts on "x" site don't actually support his claim... or in the case of Obsessed the exact OPPOSITE, then he's out, in my book at least. He's got 2 strikes now.
And I'm not even going to respond to the the "low IQ idiots," thing. As we've repeatedly pointed out, he may actually be smart, but it's probably about the same level that many of us were at when we were his age, and I've since gone on to a pair o' bachelor's degrees, learned a couple of new languages, studied politics rather intensely, and a slew of other academic pursuits. I'm MUCH smarter now than I was in High School.

Selective Reality Disorder... You should get that submitted to the DSM for inclusion in the next edition. I think you could possibly use a certain forum troll (Shoot did I just type that... Damn) as a perfect case study. Hell, they might even give you an honorary doctorate for your work in the field.

I was just talking about Michael, and only him. If you see his posts, I'm correct by saying he's repeating himself. He keeps saying the same BS, like I like this and that film, which obviously makes me dumb, and saying the fact that I like ths and that film tht I'm dumb, and using critics as prime factual evidence to show this and that film is bad,even though he hasn't seen the movie himself, not less to say Stephen King actually liked "The Happening" and has "The Ruins" on his top 10 movies of 2008. You see, I can tell what he'll post. He'll usually pick out one of 9480348 movies I like and use the following sentence structure:

"Since MWG likes _______________, he's dumb. I mean, that serves as proof that he's dumb."

or

"MWG loves movies with a twist ending and 'makes you think.'"

Don't deny it. How many posts have he made so far that made fun of my taste in movies? Plenty. It's getting a bit old right now.

Yes, and I hated 2001: A Space Odyssey, Blade Runner, and I thought The Godfather films were overrated as hell, that Aliens was the second worse in the series, etc. What's your point? Oh, riiiiight.

Maybe you are the one that has Selective Reality Disorder, or confirmational bias, for a lack of a better and real term, because you obviously seem to ignore what's on the Obsessed board on IMDb, and also ignoring the fact tht the rating is going up each day.

And seeing what word you made up is already made with the word "confirmational bias," I don't think you did so well of a job making a term that doesn't exist either. Maybe you should make up more disorders with the word "sex," just because you're so clever with it.

You mock my making up the word "Troll Denail Disorder," yet you yourself can't make up a word that wasn't made already, because SRD, basically means that I'm ignoring things on IMDb that contradicts my point. "Confirmational bias" means basically the same thing -- I don't see how much clearer I can get.

If I said "3285792387 of people have seen this movie," I'm obviously pointing out that a lot of people saw this movie. Did you get that?

1) I said I may have heard it somewhere, thus negating the concept that I thought I "made up a word." I was using a phrase that I felt fit the situation.

2) I APPLAUDED TDD. One of the more creative things you've come up with.

3) Your initial phrasing of the sentence was so grammatically backwards that it didn't make sense. I honestly couldn't tell what you were trying to say.

You really need to settle down today. I know you're getting pounded pretty hard, but you're bringing it on yourself.
Now, as you "make it clear to me," you might want to note that I've just said "I use this technique." I obviously know what it means. I do it often. That was my point.
Also, as you can't be inversely intelligent, I must assume that you mean to use the absolute value of the number you typed. And I believe you've been warned about calling people stupid today, anyway.

PS: If you want people to stop mocking your taste in movies, maybe you should stop defending bad movies in a message board devoted to mocking bad movies. Just a thought. I know I must have posted that idea "4837650457349587" times (hmmm, that number mashing doesn't do much for me), but it never seems to get through to you...

Honestly, most of these movies on here, MWG's defended too much, including Shyamalan's last two (which were widely considered to be bad movies). Most of them he just thinks weren't as bad as most people think they were. And by most people, I guess he means everyone but himself.

I know that many people did not like the film very much, but I ask you not to vote for this movie, than the worst one. The acting performances were not so much good, but because of that so much bad. Please spare this film! I ask you for my mood! There are many other bad films do not hurt this! Thanks.

No, sorry, kelemenmarc, Beyonce's getting a vote from me. However, all my other votes are going to "Transformers 2" ... and maybe a few for "The Orphan", just because.

Hypothetically speaking, which categories would you vote for ORPHAN in?

I'm just saying, if ORPHAN appears on the voting ballot, I may or may not vote for it. Who knows, maybe my hatred for Michael Bay's raping of one of my most beloved childhood memories will overcome my desire to vote for Orphan just because of how much you overhyped it.

But as for Beyonce, there's no may or may not -- she has my vote. STOP APPEARING IN MOVIES, YOU OVERRATED DIVA!

Um, you mean IMDb where its current rating is 3.6 out of 10? Or how about RT, where its current rating is 29%. Sure, it made close to $30 million this week, but next week, it will just barely make it into the top five. Yep, it's as one sided as a 500 lb. man on a seesaw opposite a 90 lb. weakling, this movie is ripe for a razzing. Seriously, if you want girl fights, stick to women's pro wrestling.

Well, box office is added and I would like to say that the film remained on the top 5 for 4 weeks. Just saying...*waiting for Michaels' excuse on how people have bad tastes in movies*

My review: 6/10

Derek is an investment brokerage hot-shot married to Sharon, a one-time temp as well as the mother to their son. Further temptation arrives in the form of Lisa, who sets her blonde ambitions on Derek from day one. Sharon is wary but Derek remains a model of marital fidelity in the face of Lisa's repeated flirtations. But when Derek rejects Lisa's sexual advances at the company Christmas party, it leads her downward spiral of romantic obsession.

I like to watch a bad, cheesy, campy, trashy movie every once in a while because I'm that type of person. This is why I watched OBSESSED, an exploitative, more trashy (although not a better) version of FATAL ATTRACTION. However, although a huge similarity to FATAL ATTRACTION, I'd like to give credit to OBSESSED for not borrowing every single idea in that film.

For example, in this film, the husband doesn't want to have sexual relations with the temp, which caught me by surprised because I was sure he was going to get the bait. Also, the wife has a bigger role in this film, which, in this case, is a VERY good thing (trust me). The performances in here are generally decent, although there are some moments of badness. Idris Elba does good job in his role while Beyoncé Knowles is, more or less, sufficient enough. However, Ali Larter does a pretty great job as the crazy psycho.

The film is pretty predictable but so what, I'm sure nobody going into this film are crazy enough to find an original story. I know I didn't. It's for the trashy entertainment and when the last 20 minutes are played, it makes the whole movie well worth watching because the cat fight between Knowles and Larter surpassed my expectations. And no, it isn't your ordinary 30 second cat fight. It's played and shot so well you're willing to forgive the faults throughout the film.

Overall, the film is decent enough for a watch. There are some moments of laugh-inducing moments, whether or not they were intentional isn't really relevant. The film also has some decent performances and some good things added to the FATAL ATTRACTION story. However, the last 20 minutes or so really do make the movie. I think it's the reason why people went to see this movie in the first place, which, I'd like to say, did not disappoint at all. Go see it if you'd like to be entertained.

Why would I stop defending "bad" movies? This just shows you don't respect anyone's opinions. Forums are to express DIFFERENT opinions, whether the main intent of the forums could be for poking fun of "bad" movies or praising "good" movies. This allows people to DISCUSS about the said films from the differing opinions.

Gee, I don't know, because when you give ratings of 6 to 9 out of 10 to EVERY movie that's listed on this forum when they should be MUCH lower, it kinda tells us you're not really the best judge of movies so it's hard to take your opinion seriously.

When I see MWG make 4 separate posts on a subject like this, I think it's just time to tune out. But yea, if it weren't for this 6/10, I'd have said he goes from 8-10/10. That's all I'd seen before this.

It's the exact same thing. You're taking up MORE space by making 4 posts.

Yeah, it would be a small miracle if he gave a grade any lower than 5 ... and to a horror movie not less.

Beyonce Knowles deserves a nomination for Worst Actress. Perhaps her only competition is Megan Fox.

Outside of this movie, I have a strong dislike for Beyonce's career. I don't know if it's because she just released a new album, but for the past 2 or 3 years, all the most popular music has sounded like her, Rihanna, Li'l Wayne, Akon, T-Pain, or TI. I'm sick of it!
