I was interested in The Book of Eli at first, but then the negative reviews came in. I lost interest. Then, a day later, it jumped from 19% to 50%. I have now regained my interest in the movie.

Wait, so you were interested in seeing the movie, then you weren't interested because it's at 19% at RT, but then you are interested again because it's up to 50% (which is still an F grade)?
 
Me, personally, I don't care to watch Denzel aimlessly walking through a desert, killing people one moment and then quoting the Bible the next minute. Hmm, going around quoting the Bible, but then killing anyone who disagrees with you ... yep, that sums up the Catholic faith in a nutshell!

That's not how the plot goes, but watching The Book of Eli is better than watching Jackie Chan babysit and fight crime simultaneously.

That's true about choosing it over "Spy Next Door". After hearing the Movie Preview Critic's review, I know there's more symbolism and subtext to "Eli", but I'll stick to renting it.

The Spy Next Door already looks like a strong contender for next year's Razzies. It currently has 9% at RT and the CONSENSUS says "Lacking a script funny enough to cover up for Jackie Chan's fading physical gifts, The Spy Next Door fails on every conceivable level." Ouch!
 
By the way, the new site looks AWESOME!

It's January 17, and we're still looking for the first big hit of 2010.  Avatar reigns for the fifth straight week, while The Book of Eli settles for second.  Here's the week ahead:

1/19 On DVD
There isn't anything big coming out on DVD this week.  Here's what IS coming out:
The Invention of Lying
Whiteout
Pandorum
Gamer
 
1/22 In Theaters
Legion - Will this be our first big hit of 2010?
Tooth Fairy - Will this be worse than The Spy Next Door?
Extraordinary Measures - Will this be a Bonus Worst of the Weak?
 
Those questions and more will be answered within the week.  Until next time, so long everybody!

1. Legion: No, it will come in second or third place, while "Avatar" goes on to replace "The Dark Knight" as the second highest grossing movie of all time.
 
2. Tooth Fairy: Disney continues to de-man-a-ize Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson. Yes, this will be as bad as "Spy Next Door".
 
3. Extraordinary Measures: This is a Hallmark TV movie with A-list stars and somehow managed to get into theaters. Bonus Worst indeed!

As the rock group America once sang, "Oz never did give nothing to the Tin Man, that he didn't already have." I'm afraid that Disney is simply not to blame for anything regarding Dwayne Johnson.Wink

February and March have caught the brunt of my attention already. Here are some films I predict will be considered for the 2010 RAZZIES. Colors reflect the month of release.
 
Percy Jackson and the Olympians: The Lightning Thief
Once hotly anticipated, many mistakes were made in the production. Percy Jackson fans started arguing in frustration over the casting, and the CGI does not suit the tone well.
 
Brooklyn's Finest
I never thought Ethan Hawke or Richard Gere (Autumn in New York) were good signs.
 
Clash of the Titans [remake]
The original was not so bad, but it was only made in 1981. Remaking a movie that recent never goes well. The second of several Greek Mythology related movies this year, indeed the return of the "sword and sandal" genre may be a nasty one.
 
How to Train Your Dragon
DreamWorks Animation is either hit or miss. Gerard Butler doesn't sound good.
 
The Back-Up Plan
A romantic comedy starring Jennifer Lopez. I expect this to go the way of The Wedding Planner and Monster-in-Law.
 
Death at a Funeral
IIRC, the dreaded remake of a 2007 British film starring people like Chris Rock.
 
Kick-A**
Matthew Vaughn has Swept Away on his resume. It also stars Nicolas Cage.
 
A Nightmare on Elm Street [remake]
This one is similar to the remake of Friday the 13th.
 
Shrek Forever After
The first two Shreks were among the best movies from the former half of last decade. Will this one get mixed reviews like Shrek the Third? Will it redeem the series? Or will it bring the series to an embarrassing wrap-up?
 
The A-Team
This movie is already guaranteed for consideration this year.
 
The Karate Kid [remake]
See notes for The A-Team
 
Footloose [remake]
Another remake of a film from the 1980's. It's way too recent!
 
The Twilight Saga: Eclipse
Need I say more?
 
The Sorcerer's Apprentice
A live-action movie published under Walt Disney Pictures. AND it stars Nicolas Cage
 
Cats & Dogs: The Revenge of Kitty Galore
Self-explanatory
 
The Other Guys
It stars Will Ferrell and Mark Wahlberg. The RAZZIES have never liked any of Adam McKay's movies. We're going to dislike this one, but most men under age 25 around where I live...will probably like it, because they like Will Ferrell.
 
Resident Evil: Afterlife
To put it really bluntly, it's time to get our act together and nominate Resident Evil for a RAZZIE.
 
Jacka** 3D
Jacka**: The Movie won the special award for "Most Flatulent Teen-Targeted Movie" in 2002. Jacka**: Number Two evaded the 2006 Razzies. How badly will this one bomb?
 
Saw VII 3D
It's a distant longshot to expect this series to be fully redeemed.
 
Red Dawn
Same notes as Footloose [remake].

Cashing in on the Harry Potter style fantasy novel market.
 
 
Brooklyn's Finest
I never thought Ethan Hawke or Richard Gere (Autumn in New York) were good signs.
 
I like Ethan Hawke best when teamed with Richard Linklater. His choices in films these days have been very hit or miss, mostly miss.
 
 
Clash of the Titans [remake]
The original was not so bad, but it was only made in 1981. Remaking a movie that recent never goes well. The second of several Greek Mythology related movies this year, indeed the return of the "sword and sandal" genre may be a nasty one.
 
I love Greek Mythology as much as the next person. Sure, CGI-wise, this movie will beat the sh*t out fo the original's stop motion claymation. However, I can wait for Redbox.
 
 
How to Train Your Dragon
DreamWorks Animation is either hit or miss. Gerard Butler doesn't sound good.
 
This one looks interesting. DreamWorks usually rakes in the profits, while Pixar rakes in the Oscars.
 
 
The Back-Up Plan
A romantic comedy starring Jennifer Lopez. I expect this to go the way of The Wedding Planner and Monster-in-Law.
 
Does anyone even care about J.Lo any more?
 
 
Death at a Funeral
IIRC, the dreaded remake of a 2007 British film starring people like Chris Rock.
 
Send this one straight to the Worst Remake pile.

Little pre-teen assassins. I can already see the piles of hate mail that parents and watchdog groups will be writing into the studio for this one.
 
A Nightmare on Elm Street [remake]
This one is similar to the remake of Friday the 13th.
 
But it will have modern day fashion, slang, and technology and will have the pacing of a music video ... so that brain dead teens will be able to relate to it.
 
 
Shrek Forever After
The first two Shreks were among the best movies from the former half of last decade. Will this one get mixed reviews like Shrek the Third? Will it redeem the series? Or will it bring the series to an embarrassing wrap-up?
 
Thankfully, this will be the last of the series.
 
 
The A-Team
This movie is already guaranteed for consideration this year.
 
There goes more of childhood being raped for profit by H-Wood.
 
 
The Karate Kid [remake]
See notes for The A-Team
 
See "A-Team"
 
 
Footloose [remake]
Another remake of a film from the 1980's. It's way too recent!
 
As I turn 30 years old this year, I'm amazed that everything I watched as a youth can now be seen once again ... only in sh*ttier quality.
 
 
The Twilight Saga: Eclipse
Need I say more?
 
No, that's enough.
 
The Sorcerer's Apprentice
A live-action movie published under Walt Disney Pictures. AND it stars Nicolas Cage
 
So it's not enough to make remakes and adapations of old TV series, novels, video games, comic books, amusement park rides, and board games, now we'll just make live action movies of animated movies.
 
Cats & Dogs: The Revenge of Kitty Galore
Self-explanatory
 
Why? Why? Why? Why? Why?
 
 
The Other Guys
It stars Will Ferrell and Mark Wahlberg. The RAZZIES have never liked any of Adam McKay's movies. We're going to dislike this one, but most men under age 25 around where I live...will probably like it, because they like Will Ferrell.
 
Top contender for Worst Ensemble Cast!
 
 
Resident Evil: Afterlife
To put it really bluntly, it's time to get our act together and nominate Resident Evil for a RAZZIE.
 
An army of Milla Jovovichs?! Where do I sign up?! Just watch the direct to DVD, CGI movie instead.
 
 
Jacka** 3D
Jacka**: The Movie won the special award for "Most Flatulent Teen-Targeted Movie" in 2002. Jacka**: Number Two evaded the 2006 Razzies. How badly will this one bomb?
 
Oh goodie, morons in 3-D.
 
 
Saw VII 3D
It's a distant longshot to expect this series to be fully redeemed.
 
Isn't this series on its death-bed as it were?
 
 
Red Dawn
Same notes as Footloose [remake].
 
Seriously, I'll be 30 this year, yet the same movies from 3 decades ago are still in theaters!

I usually don't make first impressions of movies until I see a trailer and/or some critical reception.  Don't expect me to make first impressions of those films until their release dates get closer.

Hey, things are coming together nicely.  I see the rom-com bomb Leap Year, Tim Allen's latest misfire Crazy on the Outside and Jackie Chan's ripoff The Spy Next Door all have their own threads.  Just need the HeadRAZZ's opening page for LY and TSND and things will be good to go.
 
We're gonna have so many ripoffs, remakes and sequels this year.  I'm not sure how many rom-com bombs we'll have, though.   We'll have a remake ( http://us.imdb.com/title/tt1226273/ - Edge of Darkness ) and a rom-com bomb ( http://us.imdb.com/title/tt1185416/ - When in Rome ) on 29 Jan 2010 for sure.  It's like the studios just pile them up and shovel them into the manure spreader. . . .
 
We have three question marks coming up this week.  One, which stars Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson, Ashley Judd and Julie Andrews, http://www.rottentomatoes.com/m/1202110-tooth_fairy/ - The Tooth Fairy , looks likely based on its bad trailer, but we've been burned by Johnson before with The Game Plan, which turned out not anywhere near bad enough for our consideration.  http://www.rottentomatoes.com/m/extraordinary_measures/ - Extraordinary Measures and http://www.rottentomatoes.com/m/1216680-legion/ - Legion have decent trailers, but, when I start thinking about their plots, both could wind up going either way.  It will be interesting to see how many if any of them warrant our attention.

Do you really want fear of remakes. I grew up watching Fantasia's The Sorcerer's Apprentice, one of the greatest Mickey Mouse cartoons ever made, and they make a live-action movie called The Sorcerer's Apprentice. What I'm expecting from Disney is Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time, an adaptation of one of the best video games ever. I'm new to this forum, and I'm also going through a bad economy like all of you. Recently, we've seen a surge of remakes that have become box office flops. Speed Racer, Dragonball: Evolution, Land of the Lost, and even Fame flopped only making $22 million off its $25 million budget. Others include Bangkok Dangerous, The Taking of Pelham 123, Street Fight: Legend of Chun Li, and even a rare 2009 movie that I've never heard of called Band Slam flopped because, you know, never heard of it. Did a little research on box office flops of 2009 and found out Band Slam bends toward the silly High School Musical and Hannah Montana area, which aspiring filmmakers like me fear a lot. I want to make animation and good kids stuff when I'm an adult, but I fear so much that I make up the story that they are making High School Musical and Hannah Montana because they know my name and will try to prevent me from ever getting my dream career. My influences come from the Rankin Bass Christmas specials, Jim Henson's line of work, Disney's library of real animation, Pixar, George Lucas' Star Wars and Indiana Jones, Dr. Seuss, and also Don Bluth's work apart from Disney on animated films from the 80's like The Secret of Nimh, An American Tail, and The Land Before Time.

Do you think I was young enough to grow up watching Smurfs, Thundercats, and reruns of shows like A-Team and Dukes of Hazzard, and Alvin and the Chipmunks?

First of all, sampsoninc, welcome to the board.
 
Second, pursue your dream with all your energy and passion, and I have no doubt that we will all know and respect your work one day...at the very worst, we'll be discussing it here to your deep consternation. Nonetheless, you can't botch things any worse than the people in Hollywood are doing these days. We look forward to you sharing your views with us frequently.

It was really intense. I could feel the entire floor shaking. I might see it now. I mean, Christopher Columbus did HP and those turned out to be brilliant.

How to Train Your Dragon
DreamWorks Animation is either hit or miss. Gerard Butler doesn't sound good.

I don't think he's a main character. The trailer made me curious.
 
Kick-A**
Matthew Vaughn has Swept Away on his resume. It also stars Nicolas Cage.

This will be the Zombieland of 2009. The pre-screening reviews so far have been tremendously positive.
 
A Nightmare on Elm Street [remake]
This one is similar to the remake of Friday the 13th.

I'm excited for this. I thought the original movie was good with a terrible, terrible, terrible ending. It ruins the whole point of the film.
 
Shrek Forever After
The first two Shreks were among the best movies from the former half of last decade. Will this one get mixed reviews like Shrek the Third? Will it redeem the series? Or will it bring the series to an embarrassing wrap-up?

The plot sounds intriguing. It has the It's a Wonderful Life vibe and after the disappointing third film, it can't really be worse than that.
 
The A-Team
This movie is already guaranteed for consideration this year.

I don't think so. The cast looks great.
 
Footloose [remake]
Another remake of a film from the 1980's. It's way too recent!

Actually, remakes of a film the previous year is too recent.
 
The Twilight Saga: Eclipse
Need I say more?

To be fair, this book in the series is said to be the most violent so all the guys who are complaining about this series probably will end up liking this movie. Maybe?
 
The Sorcerer's Apprentice
A live-action movie published under Walt Disney Pictures. AND it stars Nicolas Cage

Looks intriguing by the trailer.

Considering the first two are highly successful, this probably won't bomb.
 
Saw VII 3D
It's a distant longshot to expect this series to be fully redeemed.

Didn't Saw VI do that? It had the second highest reviews since the first film.

How to Train Your Dragon

It looks like the most watchable of the movies on this list.
 
Kick-A**
This will be the Zombieland of 2009. The pre-screening reviews so far have been tremendously positive.
Don't count on it. Part of "Zombieland"'s success is the fact it was mocking the dozens and dozens of zombie movies that have been invading movie theaters for the past decade. There's no market for mocking preteens running around shooting adults. It might have a cult following on DVD, but it's not going to be the run away "comedy" hit of the year.
 
A Nightmare on Elm Street [remake]
I'm excited for this. I thought the original movie was good with a terrible, terrible, terrible ending. It ruins the whole point of the film.
Gee, MWG is counting the seconds to see yet another horror movie remake. No surprise there. And it's this rush to the theaters to see these crappy remakes is the reason why they exist and come out on a yearly basis.
 
Shrek Forever After
The plot sounds intriguing. It has the It's a Wonderful Life vibe and after the disappointing third film, it can't really be worse than that.
Yes, because that's what the world needs, yet another "It's a Wonderful Life" homage. We need one of those as much as we need yet another "Christmas Carol" adaptation.
 
The A-Team
I don't think so. The cast looks great.
Well, you never think anything posted here is Razzie worthy. Yes, the cast looks like the originals, but looking the part and acting well in the part are two different things. Rampage Jackson is NO Mr. T.
 
Footloose [remake]
Actually, remakes of a film the previous year is too recent.
Or in "Death at a Funeral"'s case, only three years!
 
The Twilight Saga: Eclipse
To be fair, this book in the series is said to be the most violent so all the guys who are complaining about this series probably will end up liking this movie. Maybe?
They won't make the movie too violent. Remember, they are trying to attract preteen girls with pretty boys staring longingly into Bella's eyes, not turn them away with blood and guts.
 
The Sorcerer's Apprentice
Looks intriguing by the trailer.
Well, that may be, but that's the whole point of the trailer. We don't know what the movie itself will be like.
 
Resident Evil: Afterlife
The last three weren't bad. They were mostly forgettable.
Oh, you're right, they weren't "bad". The first was crappy, the second was god-awful, and the third was unwatchable. And they were COMPLETELY forgettable as a whole.
 
Jacka** 3D
Considering the first two are highly successful, this probably won't bomb.
Yeah, that's not a good thing. That only means we will have to hear news of a "Jackass 4".
 
Saw VII 3D
Didn't Saw VI do that? It had the second highest reviews since the first film.
Seriously, why does this series keep on going? Why do people support it? It's the same sh*t over and over and over and the only thing that changes are the cast members and what the traps are. There's NOWHERE else for this series to go! So what if the last one had the best reviews; it had its ass handed to itself by "Paranormal Activity"! The fans have spoken and they don't want torture porn any more, they want real scary thrills, the kind from what's not shown on screen.

HeadRazzberry's giving us forum space for Tooth Fairy AND Legion.  I guess he has a problem with shapeshifting beasts called 'angels'.  Based on the trailer, the premise is weird.  Based on some reviews, the film doesn't know what religion it is.  My thoughts are that it would be better to see it in theaters early in the afternoon, rent it on DVD, or watch it online.

Hey, HeadRAZZ, when will the forums for http://www.razzies.com/forum/leap-year_forum407.html - Leap Year , http://www.razzies.com/forum/crazy-on-the-outside_forum406.html - Crazy on the Outside and http://www.razzies.com/forum/the-spy-next-door_forum408.html - The Spy Next Door be unlocked?
 
Of the three movies being released this weekend to watch, as in "watch out for", there are already forums for http://www.razzies.com/forum/the-tooth-fairy_forum409.html - The Tooth Fairy and http://www.razzies.com/forum/legion_forum410.html - Legion .  We still need to keep an eye on http://www.rottentomatoes.com/m/extraordinary_measures/ - Extraordinary Measures .  Apparently, Harrison Ford can't executive produce his way out of putting a made-for-TV movie on the big screen.  I don't know if being a letdown qualifies as bad enough, but the bad reviews are pouring in, and Prairie Miller is one of the few who like it, a bad sign for sure.

I'll throw in my two cents for films coming out this year that may be in for Razzie consideration:

JANUARY

When in Rome
WHY? - Mark Steven Johnson helming a formulaic romantic comedy. Need I say more?

FEBRUARY

Dear John
WHY? - Adaptations of novels by Nicholas Sparks are immediate epic failures. And there's the guy who played Duke in G.I. Joe. He can't move his face to save his life! 

Valentine's Day
WHY? - He's Just Not Into You helmed by Georgia Rule director Garry Marshall, also starring Twilight hunk Taylor Lautner. Yeah, 'nuff said.

MARCH

The Bounty Hunter
WHY? - Think Midnight Run meets every romantic comedy you've ever seen in the past decade. Counting the days until Gerard Butler does a comic book movie?

Remember Me
WHY? - R-Patz.

The Runaways
WHY? - Reaction is lukewarm, according to DListed. But can Kristen Stewart pull off a great Joan Jett impersonation?

Season of the Witch
WHY? - Back when Dominic Sena directed Nicolas Cage, it was Gone in 60 Seconds.

APRIL

The Back-Up Plan
WHY? - J-Lo does another rom-com? Get me outta here!

Death at a Funeral
WHY? - Remakes don't do so well. And throwing in Chris Rock and other well-known African-American actors in the mix can spell disaster. Then there's the cherry on top: Neil Labute. Remember The Wicker Man?

Furry Vengeance
WHY? - Animals defending their territory from the man. Sounds like Dr. Doolittle 2.

The Last Song
WHY? - Anyone who knows about this movie need not need an explanation from me.

Machete
WHY? - Robert Rodriguez does well with R-rated films. But can he direct a film with train wreck Lindsay Lohan (her first mainstream film since I Know Who Killed Me), Razzie-nominated Jessica Alba, and Steven Seagal (her first mainstream film since Half Past Dead)?

A Nightmare on Elm Street
WHY? - Take a music video director, have Michael Bay executive produce, choose a classic horror film, and what do you get?

Tyler Perry's Why Did I Get Married Too?
WHY? - It's time we nominate this guy. His films are as big religious agendas as Kirk Cameron's recent video back in November. And I grow weary of films where black actors and actresses yell at each other.

Wall Street 2: Money Never Sleeps
WHY? - So Oliver Stone resurrects this franchise after two decades? Throwing in Shia LaBeouf isn't progress. I think we're gonna have out Basically It Stinks 2 this year, but at least Oliver Stone is directing, right? Right?

MAY

Sex and the City 2
WHY? - Self-absorbed women whine about their love lives and their choice of clothes. Topped off with a Miley Cyrus cameo. Run for ze hills!

Takers
WHY? - The premise is basically the same as Armored. This time, Matt Dillon plays the hero.

JUNE

Grown-Ups
WHY? - The Razzie Forum loves to take the piss out of Adam Sandler.

Jonah Hex
WHY? - Besides Megan Fox, turning a hardcore comic book into a PG-13 film is just asking for it. And something tells me Mastodon scoring the soundtrack is nothing more than pure gimmick. Here's hoping Josh Brolin, John Malkovich, Will Arnett, AND Fox can succeed. Yes, I'm rooting for Fox. Deal with it! Wink 

The Karate Kid
WHY? - The Smiths (Will and Jada Pinkett) push their crappy actor son into an unnecessary remake which also stars Jackie Chan.

Killers
WHY? - It joins The Bounty Hunter as another romantic comedy with action. It's helmed by the director of Bride Wars.

Marmaduke
WHY? - Garfield didn't make a good film based on a comic strip, so don't expect Marmaduke to do any better. And you have the director of Failure to Launch.

The Twilight Saga: Eclipse
WHY? - Really, if you need an explanation... well, consider yourself lucky.

JULY

Cats & Dogs: Kitty Galore
WHY? - Nine years pass for a sequel?

Knight & Day
WHY? - Another action/romance/comedy hybrid. With Tom Fooze!

The Last Airbender
WHY? - After The Happening, Shyamalan should hang his head in shame. Chalk up another mediocre adaptation of a good anime.

Predators
WHY? - Watch as the once proud franchise gets further ass-raped by money-hungry Hollywood execs. AvP: Requiem will be Ghandi compared to this upcoming mess.

The Sorcerer's Apprentice
WHY? - So now it's come to this. Disney is remaking a classic Mickey Mouse short? Helmed by the director of National Treasure, and starring Nic Cage? I smell a sh*tstorm.

AUGUST

Lottery Ticket
WHY? - Bow Wow and Ice Cube slum it up for what might be a family comedy or a raunchy comedy. Who gives a crap?

Pirahna 3-D
WHY? - Unless it can pull a My Bloody Valentine and be watchable, I'm not holding my breath. Nice to see Richard Dreyfuss battle the horrors of the ocean again, though.

Priest
WHY? - Remember Legion? Well, our director and star reunite for another religious film, this time with vampires (speaking of which, True Blood's Stephen Moyer appears). Can Sam Raimi's production hand elevate it?

Step-Up 3D
WHY? - It's a franchise that keeps on giving, just like Saw.

SEPTEMBER

The Roomate
WHY? - College hotties (Leighton Meester and Minka Kelly) getting in horrific situations. Who cares?

You Again
WHY? - Mr. Woodcock with a gender switch.

OCTOBER

Going the Distance
WHY? - Drew Barrymore and Justin Long. Yet another Hollywood couple flaunting their relationship in a wannabe When Harry met Sally film.

Saw VII 3D
WHY? - It's Saw!

Let Me In
WHY? - Yep, they're remaking Let the Right One In. And I don't even like the new title. It's gonna suck more than The Twilight Saga: Eclipse, I imagine.

NOVEMBER

Burlesque
WHY? - Aside from SNL back in '04, can Christina Aguilera actually act?

Red Dawn
WHY? - What could've been a nice contemporary update of a classic 80's film becomes another pointless remake. I'm counting the days until we see Chris Hemsworth as the mighty Thor.

DECEMBER

Tron Legacy
WHY? - Like with Wall Street 2, what's the point of bringing back an old franchise from the 80's besides cash. That's Disney. But like someone said on Comicbookmovie, Olivia Wilde is a number one stunner and a fan of the franchise. Maybe I'm nuts.

Yogi Bear
WHY? - As if Scooby Doo wasn't enough, Hollywood rapes more memories of classic Hanna-Barbera cartoons by hiring a defunct SNL member and an N*STYNCER (okay, Justin Timberlake can be funny on SNL, but I get queasy over this) to voice two legends.

A 90 minute movie about how everyone wants to have sex with Kristin Bell. I never thought someone would actually greenlight that!

FEBRUARY

Dear John
WHY? - Adaptations of novels by Nicholas Sparks are immediate epic failures. And there's the guy who played Duke in G.I. Joe. He can't move his face to save his life.
Why? To lore in the "Twilight" crowd who want to see teenagers in love stare into each other's eyes for 90 minutes.

Valentine's Day
WHY? - He's Just Not Into You helmed by Georgia Rule director Garry Marshall, also starring Twilight hunk Taylor Lautner. Yeah, 'nuff said.
You answered your own question, because it's trying to be as successful as "He's Just Not That Into You".

MARCH

The Bounty Hunter
WHY? - Think Midnight Run meets every romantic comedy you've ever seen in the past decade. Counting the days until Gerard Butler does a comic book movie?
Is anything Gerard Butler is in automatically Razzie worthy? Did everyone really hate "300" THAT much?

Season of the Witch
WHY? - Back when Dominic Sena directed Nicolas Cage, it was Gone in 60 Seconds.
Cage needs to stop doing supernatural thrillers, because he sucks in them. Of course, considering the lifestyle he lives of buying anything that's not nailed down or on fire, he needs the money.

APRIL

The Back-Up Plan
WHY? - J-Lo does another rom-com? Get me outta here!
Yeah, I think J-Lo's 15 minutes of fame died with "Gigli".

Death at a Funeral
WHY? - Remakes don't do so well. And throwing in Chris Rock and other well-known African-American actors in the mix can spell disaster. Then there's the cherry on top: Neil Labute. Remember The Wicker Man?
As I told a friend of mine when we saw the poster for this movie, it must suck to be Zoe Saldana. To go from "Avatar" to this piece of crap, I would be having a serious sit down chat with my agent.

A Nightmare on Elm Street
WHY? - Take a music video director, have Michael Bay executive produce, choose a classic horror film, and what do you get?
Because much like Health Ledger's Joker, Michael Bay doesn't have a plan ... he just does things.

Wall Street 2: Money Never Sleeps
WHY? - So Oliver Stone resurrects this franchise after two decades? Throwing in Shia LaBeouf isn't progress. I think we're gonna have out Basically It Stinks 2 this year, but at least Oliver Stone is directing, right? Right?
Because H-Wood has to cash in on the current events of what happened on Wall Street and the stock market.

MAY

Sex and the City 2
WHY? - Self-absorbed women whine about their love lives and their choice of clothes. Topped off with a Miley Cyrus cameo. Run for ze hills!
Because it's like "Star Wars" for women.

JUNE

Grown-Ups
WHY? - The Razzie forum loves to take the piss out of Adam Sandler.
Worst Ensemble Cast contender!

The Karate Kid
WHY? - The Smiths (Will and Jada Pinkett) push their crappy actor son into an unnecessary remake which also stars Jackie Chan.
As I said before, I'm turning 30 this year, yet it seems every movie that was released during my childhood is still in theaters!

Marmaduke
WHY? - Garfield didn't make a good film based on a comic strip, so don't expect Marmaduke to do any better. And you have the director of Failure to Launch.
It's only a matter of time before we get "Healthcliff: The Movie".

The Twilight Saga: Eclipse
WHY? - Really, if you need an explanation... well, consider yourself lucky.
Four books in the series, that's why.

JULY

Cats & Dogs: Kitty Galore
WHY? - Nine years pass for a sequel?
Damn you "Alvin & The Chipmucks"! Why did you have to be so successful and cause all these copycat movies to exist!?

Knight & Day
WHY? - Another action/romance/comedy hybrid. With Tom Fooze!
Because it's Tom Cruise in the role he was born to play: a crazed mad man!

The Last Airbender
WHY? - After The Happening, Shyamalan should hang his head in shame. Chalk up another mediocre adaptation of a good anime.
Well, we all know one movie goer who will be singing the praises of this movie no matter how successful it is with critics and audiences. Wink

Predators
WHY? - Watch as the once proud franchise gets further ass-raped by money-hungry Hollywood execs. AvP: Requiem will be Ghandi compared to this upcoming mess.
See my comment from "Karate Kid".

The Sorcerer's Apprentice
WHY? - So now it's come to this. Disney is remaking a classic Mickey Mouse short? Helmed by the director of National Treasure, and starring Nic Cage? I smell a sh*tstorm.
Disney sucks and Pixar is the only thing keeping it afloat.

AUGUST

Step-Up 3D
WHY? - It's a franchise that keeps on giving, just like Saw.
Yes, so now we can see break dancing in 3-D! Why the hell did someone think this was a good idea?!

OCTOBER

Saw VII 3D
WHY? - It's Saw!
But it's in 3-D, so that the saws and other killing devices will swing out at you. That makes it a better movie, right. Right?

Red Dawn
WHY? - What could've been a nice contemporary update of a classic 80's film becomes another pointless remake. I'm counting the days until we see Chris Hemsworth as the mighty Thor.
Again, see my comment from "Karate Kid".

DECEMBER

Tron Legacy
WHY? - Like with Wall Street 2, what's the point of bringing back an old franchise from the 80's besides cash. That's Disney. But like someone said on Comicbookmovie, Olivia Wilde is a number one stunner and a fan of the franchise. Maybe I'm nuts.
I really don't get this logic of H-Wood of making sequels 20 years from the originals.

Yogi Bear
WHY? - As if Scooby Doo wasn't enough, Hollywood rapes more memories of classic Hanna-Barbera cartoons by hiring a defunct SNL member and an N*STYNCER (okay, Justin Timberlake can be funny on SNL, but I get queasy over this) to voice two legends.
Gee, what else from my childhood can H-Wood sh*t on?

WHY? - Adaptations of novels by Nicholas Sparks are immediate epic failures. And there's the guy who played Duke in G.I. Joe. He can't move his face to save his life!

I'm looking forward to this movie. As a sentimental guy, I LOVE movies like this. In fact, Titanic is my favorite movie. Strangely, I didn't like The Notebook as much when I saw it but I'm looking forward to this movie. It looks fantastic!

Valentine's Day
WHY? - He's Just Not Into You helmed by Georgia Rule director Garry Marshall, also starring Twilight hunk Taylor Lautner. Yeah, 'nuff said.

But it stars some Oscar nominees too. So what?

Death at a Funeral
WHY? - Remakes don't do so well. And throwing in Chris Rock and other well-known African-American actors in the mix can spell disaster. Then there's the cherry on top: Neil Labute. Remember The Wicker Man?

That was Labute's first misstep. You know he made other movies than The Wicker Man, right?

Machete
WHY? - Robert Rodriguez does well with R-rated films. But can he direct a film with train wreck Lindsay Lohan (her first mainstream film since I Know Who Killed Me), Razzie-nominated Jessica Alba, and Steven Seagal (her first mainstream film since Half Past Dead)?

Just because a movie stars actors you don't like doesn't make it a bad movie. This seems to be the correlation between the Razzie winners. Just because Paris Hilton is in so and so movie doesn't mean the movie itself is bad. I'm still not over the fact that she won a Razzie for her performance in House of Wax. When Roger Ebert and Richard Roeper were reviewing the movie, they talked about how decent her performance is and how they'd expect many people to poke fun of her just because she's Paris Hilton.

A Nightmare on Elm Street
WHY? - Take a music video director, have Michael Bay executive produce, choose a classic horror film, and what do you get?

Everyone starts somewhere. The director of 500 Days of Summer did some music videos.

Tyler Perry's Why Did I Get Married Too?
WHY? - It's time we nominate this guy. His films are as big religious agendas as Kirk Cameron's recent video back in November. And I grow weary of films where black actors and actresses yell at each other.

I'm a huge defender for this guy. He started down right poor. He was raped by his father and he made it all the way up by himself. Now he has his own company which gives him creative control for basically all of his movies while Lionsgate distributes them and he's making money on every film he makes. This is a fairy tale come true and I can't help but feel some resentment from people. And I've actually seen some of his films and they are good and nowhere near as bad as their IMDb ratings suggest. His last film, I Can Do Bad All By Myself was his first fresh rating on RT and it has an 80% from the top critics. People are saying it's his best film yet. I applaud this man and what he's doing for the minorities.

Knight & Day
WHY? - Another action/romance/comedy hybrid. With Tom Fooze!

It looks quite hilarious and entertaining judging from the trailer. Which trailer were you watching?

The Last Airbender
WHY? - After The Happening, Shyamalan should hang his head in shame. Chalk up another mediocre adaptation of a good anime.

Why should he hang is head in shame? He doesn't make movies for you and because of that, you act as if he should shoot himself in the foot.

Predators
WHY? - Watch as the once proud franchise gets further ass-raped by money-hungry Hollywood execs. AvP: Requiem will be Ghandi compared to this upcoming mess.

This may end up good. I never really liked the first two films.

Pirahna 3-D
WHY? - Unless it can pull a My Bloody Valentine and be watchable, I'm not holding my breath. Nice to see Richard Dreyfuss battle the horrors of the ocean again, though.

This may end up like either MBV3D or The Final Destination 3D. Considering it's from Aja, let's hope the former.

Step-Up 3D
WHY? - It's a franchise that keeps on giving, just like Saw.

I'm looking forward to this. The second one was actually better than the first and the dancing sequences were mind-blowing. Some of the best ever caught on film. But this one is in 3D!

Saw VII 3D
WHY? - It's Saw!

You act as if Saw was the worst film created.

Let Me In
WHY? - Yep, they're remaking Let the Right One In. And I don't even like the new title. It's gonna suck more than The Twilight Saga: Eclipse, I imagine.

It's directed by the guy who did Cloverfield so I hope it ends up good. Wouldn't it be funny if one buys a ticket and says, "I want one ticket to let me in, please."

Tron Legacy
WHY? - Like with Wall Street 2, what's the point of bringing back an old franchise from the 80's besides cash. That's Disney. But like someone said on Comicbookmovie, Olivia Wilde is a number one stunner and a fan of the franchise. Maybe I'm nuts.

You are nuts. Tron 2 will probably be one of the most successful movies of this year and one of the most anticipated movies of this year. The technology looks amazing.

"Titanic" is you #1 favorite movie of all time? Seriously? Well, whatever floats your boat. Me, I've waited 12 long years for a movie come along and dethrone that overly glorfied chick flick from its spot as the top grossing movie of all time. Critics can moan all they want about the high priced 3-D and IMAX surcharges, but they have to get used to eating sour grapes because there will be a new king of the world within two or three weeks, and that world is called Pandora.

Valentine's Day
But it stars some Oscar nominees too. So what?
Um, the fact it's a rehashing of "He's Just Not That Into You" ... only a year after it was released! It even has Bradley Cooper, who was also in "HJNTIY".

Death at a Funeral
That was Labute's first misstep. You know he made other movies than The Wicker Man, right?
Yeah, he had a few good movies before "Wicker Man", but this remake doesn't need to exist. The original British movie was fine as it is. I mean, if this is going to follow the format of every other African-American movie that's been made in the past decade, you know for a fact they are going to be using the same jokes over and over. Example: I bet money that at one point, someone is going to mention Beyonce's booty. Why? Because there's some rule in African-American movies that at some point, some one must talk about the booty of that overhyped, overrated bitch!

Machete
Just because a movie stars actors you don't like doesn't make it a bad movie. This seems to be the correlation between the Razzie winners. Just because Paris Hilton is in so and so movie doesn't mean the movie itself is bad. I'm still not over the fact that she won a Razzie for her performance in House of Wax. When Roger Ebert and Richard Roeper were reviewing the movie, they talked about how decent her performance is and how they'd expect many people to poke fun of her just because she's Paris Hilton.
It is the weirdest cast ever put together. R-Rod knows how to make good, popcorn action movies, and this will no doubt be one of them. We'll see what happens. Remember, the Razzies hate the Sly Guy, but they spared him for "Rocky 6", because it didn't turn out as bad as we thought it would be.

A Nightmare on Elm Street
Everyone starts somewhere. The director of 500 Days of Summer did some music videos.
Yeah, but you don't understand, Bay chooses music video directors because they will shoot in the same style that he only understands, which is every shot lasting only 4 seconds before cutting to another one. I would have more respect for Bay if he did something original and didn't film it like a 2 hour long beer commerical. Even the great Hitchcock, a man known for making almost nothing but thrillers and murder mysteries, broke type and directed the comedy "Mr. & Mrs. Smith".

Tyler Perry's Why Did I Get Married Too?
I'm a huge defender for this guy. He started down right poor. He was raped by his father and he made it all the way up by himself. Now he has his own company which gives him creative control for basically all of his movies while Lionsgate distributes them and he's making money on every film he makes. This is a fairy tale come true and I can't help but feel some resentment from people. And I've actually seen some of his films and they are good and nowhere near as bad as their IMDb ratings suggest. His last film, I Can Do Bad All By Myself was his first fresh rating on RT and it has an 80% from the top critics. People are saying it's his best film yet. I applaud this man and what he's doing for the minorities.
Okay, but can't he make a movie with a different theme besides an African-American family getting through hard times through the power of prayer? The man's resume looks like a broken record. When you sum up the plots of all his movies, they are all the same.

Knight & Day
WHY? - Another action/romance/comedy hybrid. With Tom Fooze!

If there was ever a movie in which you should turn your brain off and enjoy the madness on the screen, it's this one. Just sit back and watch Tom Cruise re-enact his famous Orpah interview, except with guns this time.

The Last Airbender
Why should he hang is head in shame? He doesn't make movies for you and because of that, you act as if he should shoot himself in the foot.
If you were an anime fan, you would understand. After crap like "Speed Racer" and "Dragonball Z", we're tired of H-Wood slapping us in the face with their poorly-done live action adaptations. And considering his last three movies, we have very faith in Mr. M. Night doing any better.

Predators
This may end up good. I never really liked the first two films.
Well, that's half your problem, because the first two are action/sci-fi classics, whether you liked them or not, and this one will not live up to them.

Pirahna 3-D
This may end up like either MBV3D or The Final Destination 3D. Considering it's from Aja, let's hope the former.
Just because something is in 3-D, it doesn't make it good. "Avatar" is a rare example. Everything else is usually "Oh look, the actor is pointing his finger in my direction, how cool!".

Step-Up 3D
I'm looking forward to this. The second one was actually better than the first and the dancing sequences were mind-blowing. Some of the best ever caught on film. But this one is in 3D!
See my comment above.

Saw VII 3D
You act as if Saw was the worst film created.
The first one was fine. Every sequel after it were among the worst movies ever made.

Let Me In
It's directed by the guy who did Cloverfield so I hope it ends up good. Wouldn't it be funny if one buys a ticket and says, "I want one ticket to let me in, please."
Actually, I wouldn't be surprised if they use that 'I want one ticket to let me in, please" as part of their ad compaign. 

[quote]Tron Legacy

See, that's the thing. Clearly, this movie is not for OUR genteration, the one that was alive 30 years ago when the original came out. This movie is for you, the teenagers who couldn't care less of the first one and are going just to look at all the pretty CGI. That is what the studios are hoping for and that's the real reason why it will be a success.

I beg to differ because when the first film came out, it was a technological feat. When the clip for Tron 2 was shown in Comic-Con or whatever it was, many people were praising the technology used and I assure you that those people were not teens.

Okay, I will have respect for the film if it draws fans from both generations. If it's just a CGI porno, then that's not an improvement. However, the catering to the teen generation is why all other remakes are being made, as good as the originals were and should be left untouched.

The only way "Edge of Darkness" will become the "first big hit of 2010" is if it makes anywhere between $20 and $30 million on its opening weekend, which I highly doubt it will.

Meanwhile, I have done the math and if "Avatar" manages to add another $9 or $10 millon on Monday, take in $5 million on Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday, and then make $10 million on Friday, Saturday and Sunday, it should surpass "Titantic" by this time next week with a total close to $607 million.

I think Edge of Darkness will make money because it's like Taken and a lot of people loved Taken, including myself. It'll probably make around $20 million.

Maybe, but even if it makes that much, "Avatar" will make anywhere between $25 to $35 million, enough to keep it at #1 once again.

Is this a sign that January, with regard to movies, has no redeeming qualities?

Anyways, When in Rome looks like it's going to fail worse than Edge of Darkness. When in Rome has a 999 per mille chance of being our contender for Jnr. 25-29. Edge of Darkness has a 555 per mille chance.
 
For the record, percent is out of 100, per mille is out of 1000. The per mille symbol looks like the fraction 0 / 00, rather than 0 / 0.

Yep! January & February are the two months when NOTHING but bad movies are released, because between all the snowy weather and people being broke from the winter holiday season, very few people are willing to go to the theaters and play money to see a movie. Unless, of course, that movie is a life experience that you have to witness at least once before you die, ie. "Avatar".

Since when is Michael Phillips an expert movie critic? Why is everyone quoting him as if his opinion matters? Unless of course, this is another Michael Phillips and not the Olympic swimmer I thinking of.

That Olympic swimmer is Michael Phelps.  Michael Phillips is a film critic for the Chicago Tribune and one of the hosts of At the Movies ( http://bventertainment.go.com/tv/buenavista/atm/ - LINK ).

If my memory serves me right, Twentieth Century-Fox will once again be the top studio for 2009 with Avatar, cashing in all the way to #1 in domestic and international grosses (Fox shared the #1 spot with Paramount for "Titanic" for 12 years and before that, Fox held the #1 spot for the first "Star Wars" [Episode IV to you junkies]).  James Cameron has outdone himself after a 12 year absence.  

"Avatar" is a fantastic voyage in cinema, especially if seen in IMAX 3-D. I advise everyone to see it in IMAX 3-D while you can!

That's great, but we don't need weekly updates about what should be voted on come Janurary of next year. If Miguel were to make these virtual Razzie lists on a bi-monthly basis or just ONE list in say maybe November, that's fine. But I'm pretty sure HeadRazz is keeping track of everything just fine and we don't need a weekly list of what's razzie worthy, we already have subforums for that.

I personally think you're right,but some think that if we do it this way,we'll keep the "woon"(bad movies hurt)fresh.

I was looking through entertainment news today, when I came across an interesting turn of events.  Kristen Bell, the star of the Razzie prospect "When in Rome", has announced that she is engaged to fellow cast member Dax Shepard (he plays the model).  I don't know what to make of this.

Don't worry.  I won't be giving you weekly reminders of my virtual Razzie charts, but there is one thing I should remind you about right now: Tomorrow, advance screenings of "From Paris With Love" will take place and the critics will have a chance to determine whether this film is 'royale' or 'cheesy'.  Click http://advancescreenings.com/movie/from_paris_with_love - here  for details.

BAHA! I think you should watch Book of Eli because Denzel is a great actor and none of his movies have ever been a dud. Regardless of what Razzie says. Go for it. Dont listen to reviews. Because most of the time two websites will review one movie completely opposite. And this whole website pretty much says that ALL of the TOP and BEST movies were terrible. What? So the bad acting must be why these movies were great hits. The best is like Twilight. Robert Pattison and Kristin Stewart were nominated for best actress/actor. Really? This is just funny. Because everyone knows they played their character to the tee. And I'm not sure where the bad acting came to play. Anyways. You need to watch book of Eli and not listen so much to reviews. ESPECIALLY not this one.
 
AND to the idiot that replied... You really are a weird cat. Did it make you feel better bashing the Catholic Faith like that. Do you feel like your worth something now. Because its pathetic insecure people like you that have to bash Catholics and fly into buildings to make your self feel like your worth a sh*t. So maybe you should stick to your religion because whoever your god is... they prob wouldnt want you bashing everyone elses gods like that. SO my work here is done. Have a great day asshole.

Wait, so you were interested in seeing the movie, then you weren't interested because it's at 19% at RT, but then you are interested again because it's up to 50% (which is still an F grade)?
 
Me, personally, I don't care to watch Denzel aimlessly walking through a desert, killing people one moment and then quoting the Bible the next minute. Hmm, going around quoting the Bible, but then killing anyone who disagrees with you ... yep, that sums up the Catholic faith in a nutshell!

The trolls are coming from all sides. It looks like the announcement of the nominees was like dangling raw meat in front of those idiots. So sad.
And did that troll REALLY compare bashing catholicism to crashing planes into buildings? Seriously? Isn't that on the same list of debate tactics as comparing people to Hitler?

Dear John
Yeah, I've got a feeling this one's getting off scot-free. Despite frozen-faced Channing Tatum appearing in it, and http://www.egotastic.com/entertainment/celebrities/amanda-seyfried/amanda-seyfrieds-cleavage-is-a-beautiful-sign-of-things-to-come-005307 - Amanda Seyfried getting more notice on her not-that-amazing breasts (Katy Perry's are better) than her talent, Nicholas Sparks adaptations slip under the radar. But the reviews aren't too kind.

Percy Jackson & the Olympian Thief

I got a Seeker: The Dark is Rising vibe with this. Corny jokes mixed within a serious storyline. No, thank you.

From Paris with Love

I can't believe Pierre Morel went from Taken to this. Point blank, Lionsgate is a crappy studio (only Away from Her and Precious are their only crowning achievements).

Valentine's Day
One of the stars of Twilight is in this film. Topped off with Georgia Rule director Garry Marshall, and a starring role for Taylor Swift, whose music I can't really get excited about (I've become more accustomed to 80's heavy metal music, thanks to Jack Black). I can't believe this once proud director jumped the shark.

The Wolfman
I wouldn't take a sh*t on this yet. The trailers look extremely good, and you couldn't pick a better cast. And let's not forget Joe Johnson can be an incredible director. If he does good with this, Captain America will be even better.

Shutter Island
Martin Scorsese is the man. As with The Departed, this is how a remake should be handled.

Cop-Out
I hope this doesn't get bad reviews as you hope. I saw the trailer, and it looks insanely hilarious. Bruce Willis is having a good time, Tracy Morgan is deliriously wild, and Seann William Scott is back to being the hilarious prankster again. And look for a cameo from the delicious Michelle Trachenburg.

The Crazies
So now George A. Romero films are up for grabs? Well, pretty much everything from Wes Craven has been raped, so let's go after the legendary Italian horror maestro himself.

Spinoff? Well, they do both have Bradley Cooper. I like to think of it was the unofficial sequel, or unofficial reboot ... only one year later.

How did The Lightning Thief do? If THAT one fails, it'll be enough evidence to consider 5 movies for a span of two weekends. I have a feeling, though, that this is just the tip of the iceberg.

It feels like a spinoff.  It has just about every element "He's Just Not That Into You" had: an all-star cast, romance, laugh-light comedy, the only difference is that this one is competing against two big films and "He's Just Not That Into You" wasn't competing against any.  Most of the advance screenings for "Valentine's Day" take place on Monday.  This http://advancescreenings.com/movie/valentines_day - link will give you all the details.

With the Percy Jackson movie, it looks like they are going for the old "Harry Potter" series of seven movies thing. I bet they even have the sequel and a third movie lined-up. But if this movie tanks, those six other sequels could be declared DOA.

Percy Jackson & The Olympians could be the one to knock Avatar out of the top spot (unless it gets knocked out this week).


Posted By: BurnHollywoodBurn

I don't think anything is knocking "Avatar" out of it's top spot. That beast of a movie is going to stay #1 until it's taken out of theaters.

Judging by the box office numbers for the past few weekends, Avatar's running out of steam.  This win streak won't last much longer.  

RESPONSE from Head RAZZberry: "Running out of steam"?? With a seventh weekend take of over $30 million and NINE Oscar nominations announced this week??? For someone who seems obsessed with box office as an indicator of quality, your prediction here seems ill-informed. Exactly what movie do you think has the potential to top AVATAR's likely $20-$25 million figure this coming weekend??  Voters in B.O. MoJo's Box Office Derby (who are sometimes off-the-mark, but just as often spot-on) have http://www.boxofficemojo.com/movies/?id=avatar.htm -

I didn't say Avatar would get knocked off the top spot this coming weekend.  I mentioned earlier that Percy Jackson & the Olympians could knock Avatar out next weekend.

Good luck to a Harry Potter knock off making over $20 million opening week. Percy Jackson has one-sixteenth Potter's hype and popularity. "Avatar" ain't going nowhere.


Posted By: MiguelAntilsu

Well, it's either Percy Jackson or Shutter Island.

Here's the RT Critics' Consensus for Dear John: "Built from many of the same ingredients as other Nicholas Sparks tearjerkers, Dear John suffers from its cliched framework, as well as Lasse Hallstrom's curiously detached directing."
 
Roger Ebert says, "Lasse Hallstrom's Dear John tells the heartbreaking story of two lovely young people who fail to find happiness together because they're trapped in an adaptation of a Nicholas Sparks novel. ( http://rogerebert.suntimes.com/apps/pbcs.dll/article?AID=/20100203/REVIEWS/100209990 - link )"
 
I think these may be indications of a Bonus Worst New Movie of the Weak.  

RESPONSE from Head RAZZberry: Although DEAR JOHN looks like it could be the first film to topple AVATAR from atop the Box Office Pyramid, it is being considered as a possible Bonus Worst of the Weak pick. More later...

And you're obviously not paying attention to these factors:  A) "Avatar" has 3-D surcharges on its side, B) All the Oscar nods it got are going to give it an extra boost, C) Since it's a movie that is best viewed in theaters, not with home entertainment, people will want to see it on the big screen even more.

I disagree. AVATAR's success came before the awards. Well,it premiered a few days before the Golden Globes nominations were announced. Still,by the time it won, it had already been one of the 5 highest grossin' movies. And now it's at #1 of all time, and it got to that place before it got the Oscar nominations.

Yes, BUT, Miguel is saying that "Avatar" is running out of gas, and it won't be #1 for much longer. I am saying that, thanks to the Oscar nods it got, more people will be interested in what is so great about this movie that it's up for 9 awards. So even more people will go see it, and that is among the reasons why it will still be #1 for a few more weeks.  

RESPONSE from Head RAZZberry: Hate to admit this, but based on Friday grosses for Feb. 5, it looks like MiguelAntilsu may have been right, and AVATAR may have finally fallen from #1...

Well,obviously it won't stay long at #1 forever. But why are you two so hard on AVATAR? It's nominated for "Best Picture" for a reason. It has like 90% good reviews (Rotten Tomatoes).

All good things must end someday, and that includes colossal win streaks.



Posted By: BurnHollywoodBurn
Date Posted: February 05 2010 at 5:02pm
Agreed, but that doesn't mean it will end anytime soon. I forgot to mention: D) The current trend that when releasing a slate of "something for everyone" movies, ie. one rom-com, one family flick, one horror movie, etc, they might cancel each other out, making only $15 million or so each while "Avatar" is free go on and get its $20 million or more for that week.
 
But since you seem to like this guessing game of which movie will be the first big hit of 2010, I'll give you the answer: it will be either "Clash of the Titans", "Prince of Persia" or "Iron Man 2". If you mean "big" as in $100 million or more in its opening week (and then going on to make $200 to $300 million), those are your best bets, whichever of them comes out first.

I don't think very many people are anticipating Valentine's Day because if the last two romantic comedies are any indication, this one may not be worth seeing.  Furthermore, a couple of users on Current.com held a funeral for the genre during the credits of this week's episode of the Rotten Tomatoes Show ( http://current.com/the-rotten-tomatoes-show/ - LINK ).  And in case your interested, that video also contains indications that Saint John of Las Vegas may be Razzie-worthy.  Percy Jackson and The Wolfman on the other hand, have a lot of hype.


Posted By: BurnHollywoodBurn
Date Posted: February 06 2010 at 5:03am
Of the movies mentioned, I think "Valentine's Day" is the only one that might come close to be an even grosser with "Avatar" for that week. Why? Because what couple is not going to see a movie called "Valentine's Day" that's being released on Valentine's Day weekend?

Well, it seems it doesn't need to be next week to topple off Avatar from the #1 spot. Dear John made a surprising $14 million on Friday, more than two times what Avatar made ($6 million). But it may be too early to tell, because Avatar usually does very, very well on Saturday.

Posted By: BurnHollywoodBurn
Date Posted: February 06 2010 at 2:36pm
Yes, keep in mind that "Book of Eli" started out strong on its Friday release, but "Avatar" pulled a late surge on Saturday for the win. Expect the same to happen here. However, the snow storms in the northeast might also factor in the B.O. outcome. So if "Dear John" does win, Hollywood should be thanking Mother Nature for that upset. But no, "Dear John" will not be the first "big" hit of 2010, going on to make $100 million or more.

$100M is a little too big of a minimum for the term "big hit".  My minimum is somewhere around $40 to 50M or more in its opening weekend.



Posted By: BurnHollywoodBurn
Date Posted: February 06 2010 at 4:02pm
Come now, it's 2010. $400 million is considered the new benchmark for a blockbuster. $40 or $50 is considered a modest success, or breaking even. $100 million on the opening weekend, that's a "big hit". But that's Hollywood math for you.
