WHEN a MEGA-BUDGET, EXPENSIVE-FX-LADEN PRODUCTION FEATURING MULTIPLE PAST OSCAR® WINNERS and NOMINEES in ITS CAST OPENS in FEBRUARY, THOSE in the KNOW KNOW SOMETHING's GONE WRONG... 

TOP-LINING http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0000164/ - http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0000164/awards - ® http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0000164/awards - PERFORMANCES), FAILED 2009 OSCAR®-BAITER http://www.imdb.com/name/nm1289434/ - BEST ACTRESS in and as http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0962736/ - http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0001125/awards -
ON the BRIGHT SIDE: WITH HOPKINS OVER-ACTING with WILD ABANDON, TRANSFORMATION EFFECTS for the BEAST THAT LOOK LIKE SOMETHING CONCOCTED DURING a BAD ACID TRIP, and an OVERALL SOLEMN TONE to the WHOLE THING, WOLFMAN IS a CONTENDER to BE the MOST HOWLINGLY FUNNY MOVIE of 2010! 

OKAY FOLKS, IT's HAIR-of-the-DOG TIME...HAVE AT IT! 




DEL TORO: "WHY did I listen to Halle and follow up an 
Oscar winning role with an animal-based character?!?!?" 

HOPKINS: "Well, you're not totally insane -- You were

I'm usually a family friendly purist, because I'm a Christian. Didn't really know the Wolfman existed, or that Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde, or a Mummy existed until I watched Mad Monster Party, a Rankin/Bass film I discovered because I've been watching Rudolph and Frosty ever since I was a little boy. If you like a work someone has made and are curious about what other films the same people made, you'll probably discover some of the rare, obscurities that lie within the dark depths of the huge film library from as far back as 1885-1890 to 2010. For example, if you are a fan of ET The Extra Terrestrial and want to know what other works he did, you'll probably discover Duel, a film he made in the early days of his career. Not only that, you might discover An American Tail, if you're also a fan of Avatar and want to know other works James Horner composed for, you'll discover both An American Tail and the sequel, Fievel Goes West. Wolfman is rated R, and if kids watch Mad Monster Party, they'll be frightened of the extreme violence and stuff in this film, which they won't be allowed to see because they can't see R rated films until they are 17. Rated R stinks.

I'm looking forward to this film. I think it'll get good reviews and it has a lot of great actors. Oh, and Hulk was miles better than The Incredible Hulk was ever trying to be. And lastly, the description for this film can also be applied to Shutter Island, which also comes out this month.

Are you guys kidding me? I'm actually looking forward to this. Now I'm worried. If this gets Razzie nominations, The First Avenger: Captain America will be f**ked six million ways 'til Sunday. It could even be worst than the 1990 Captain America movie.

I don't think this movie will have any effect on Captain America, seeing as how the dude who signed on to be Cap is not the major selling point of the movie. It's all the Oscar talent that's in it, even though they should be better than having to be in this.

Let's see, a year ago, we had The Other Boleyn Girl.  Well, this movie has better actors. . . .
 
Actually, I would have never had guessed this movie could be Razzie bait until HeadRAZZ pointed out its February release date.  These actors should have had a lot of fun making a great movie about the Wolfman...or will it be that we have a lot of fun making fun of these actors?

With just under 40 reviews in so far, this one is sitting at about 38%...probably a bit disappointing but not one of ours.  As a huge fan of the classic Universal monsters I'll probably see it and I'll probably end up being gravely disappointed....but I think we can dispatch this one from our radar screen.

One of the RT reviews for The Wolfman suggested that it was a better date movie than Valentines Day. That is a pretty cold remark. LOL

I'm looking at RT, and I think that is famed critic Roger Ebert who said that.

BTW, 35% for Wolfman (66 reviews), and 12% for Valentine's Day (57 reviews) as of this post.

And Valentine's Day has Jessica Alba in it (a repeat bad movie offender) and has a performance by Taylor Swift that one guy says: "The movie isn’t awful, and nor is it an award winner,” the OK! critic declares, “unless you count Swift’s frontrunner status to add a worst supporting actress Razzie to her shelf full of Grammys.” Ouch."  Just wait until we get her in a Supergirl remake **shudders**

Well, I didn't actually think it was THAT bad, but it wasn't good either, I'm not a fan of SIR Anthony Hopkins at the best of time, and he more or less re-did his Van Helsing role. Unfortunately I saw it in German, so can't comment on how their delivery was, but I thought Del Toro did a fair job, and he did remind me of Lon Chaney. It's all over the place though, and I thought there was too much blood and guts thrown in just to gore it up, where it was totally unnecessary, as were several scenes, the entire London part was just there to fill space, and for the nod to American Werewolf in London. The moon changed sides during one scene, that was kind of daft, don't they have people to watch out for that kind of thing? Shame though, I'm a great fan of werewolf films, so when I heard about this I was well up for it, especially with Benicio Del Toro. Never mind eh?

In no way is The Wolfman as hilariously bad as that Captain America movie where the good Captain is running up the stairs hiding behind his little toy shield.
 
As for a date movie, don't see Valentine's Day or The Wolfman.  Go see The Blind Side, or even better, rent a classic movie and stay home.
 
However, that doesn't mean The Wolfman isn't so stupid in places as to be funny.
 
For example, the most stupid scene in the movie is:
 
MAJOR SPOILER ALERT
 
I mean, imagine a London psychologist, who I shall call head doofus, subjects Benicio Del Toro to repeated torture and hallucinogenic drugs, and then manages to present him to a room of fellow psychologists on the night of a full moon so they can together watch Del Toro realize that he is not a lycanthrope. 
 
Mind you, if I were subjected to all that, I would hope to turn into a werewolf, too.  But that's beside the point.
 
As Del Toro transmogrifies at the appearance of the full moon, the doctors all get up as any sane man would and immediately leave. . . . No, that's not what happened.  They all demonstrated why their possible deaths would improve psychology for a hundred years by wasting time trying to get the head doofus to turn around and see what was going on.  Head doofus showed more intelligence after he FINALLY turns around, and immediately pulls himself up and over the rail and heads for the door where he opens it and goes out. . . . No, that's not what happened.  The door is, as cliched as it sounds, locked, so he pulls out the cliched key ring with a bazillion keys and doesn't know which one opens the door, and then argues with a dumb-as-stone janitor about opening the door, giving Del Toro de Lycanthrope time enough to defenestrate head doofus, who meets his cliche end impaled on the ironwork below.   And the other doctors have already exited the room through the double doors. . . . No, that's not what happened.  I couldn't see exactly what happened, but it seems the first doctors through the doors locked the doors behind them, trapping all the other doctors for the Wolfman to thrash if he wanted.  I mean, if that is actually what happened, it would be the only smart (even if vastly unethical) act of self-preservation demonstrated by anybody in the movie.   If it didn't happen that way, what a shame.   An opportunity lost. . . .
 
From Anthony Hopkins giving us his screen presence and little more, to Emily Blunt's cliched character of the fiancee of the late brother who falls in love with the next brother, to Del Toro, Hopkins, the late brother and the late mother not looking anything alike, to Hopkins killing his wife but for some reason sparing his son, to the faithful Indian servant who stays around despite knowing his boss' insanity, to the men traipsing about the woods late at night with no torches trying to shoot a beast who races at 30 mph and instead bumbling about in fear, shooting each other and providing plenty of excuses for gratuitous violence. . . .
 
And when you know a man becomes a wolfman one month after being wounded by another wolfman and survives, and you learn this from Hugo Weaving, and Weaving is standing there, in front of you, clearly wounded by the Wolfman, and your guns are loaded with silver bullets, why are you just standing around? . . .
 
But what is most hilarious is the line from the fortune teller from BloodRayne, er, a gypsy woman (yes, they have the cliched gypsy camp):  "It is a sin to kill a man, but it is not a sin to kill a beast.  But where does the beast end and the man begins?"  Just stop blabbering and kill the guy, will you? 
 
The next most hilarious is from Emily Blunt's Gwen, who says that if Del Toro is really a Wolfman, then everything is possible, like magic, God, Santa Claus and the tooth fairy (The Rock has already proven that to us, and I wish he hadn't. . . .).
 
And there's at least three flashbacks, and one point where Hopkins gives a very long exposition. . . .
 
Mind you, Anthony Hopkins sleepwalking through a script shows more talent than many actors, let alone many of our regular Razzie nominees, and Del Toro, Weaving and Blunt perform well beyond what the script deserves.  It's the quality of the acting that keeps this movie from causing me to split my sides with laughter and tolerate the onscreen lunacy (pun intended).  And this is what gives this movie its worst curse -- it is an extremely disappointing movie.  It could have easily been a classic for all time.  Rework the script to move from the stupid to the intelligent, rework the jump scares from the merely gratuitous to the fearful, treat the characters less like props and more like real beings, and deal cinematically with the issues of "giving into the beast" (I would have loved to hear a screaming all out dramatic argument between Hopkins and Del Toro over this, but instead we get the exposition). . . . we could have had such a great movie.
 
Instead, we have some gratuitous violence, some special effects and a wasted opportunity. 
 
Look for Hugo Weaving getting stuck with starring in a sequel no one wants.  When will Weaving be cast in an Oscar worthy role deserving of his talent?

Continuity mistakes can be picked out in just about every movie, but some are so astonishingly laughable that they almost make otherwise unwatchable films worth sitting through. One of my personal favorites involves the most dreadful film made by the most ridiculously overrated actor in Hollywood history, John Wayne. The film in question is his kiss up fest with the Vietnam War, The Green Berets. The film ends with John and the little Vietnamese orphan, Wun Hung Lo or whatever his name was walking off toward a beautiful sunset on the South China Sea. Of course as anyone with a 5th grade grasp of geography is aware, that would mean the sun was setting in the east.
 
A similar mistake was made during the closing sequence of Jaws II. There are numerous other examples of laughable astronomical/geographic mistakes in filmdom, leading to the conclusion that there isn't a single person in Hollywood that could make it past the first 3 questions in Are You Smarter than a 5th Grader.

Sure there are continuity mistakes, as in almost every film. But what riles me is that, with all the effort and talented people, not to mention money, involved in making any film, turkey or not, these things still happen -- and blatantly so.  

The Green Berets, for example, was awful, no doubt about it, gung-ho bullsh*t to the hilt.
But I don't think Wolfman should be Razzie material -- it's not as bad as the likes of Showgirls, Swept Away, Battlefield Earth, and just generally anything Eddie Murphy has done since, say, the first Beverly Hills Cop.

On a different note, I don't suppose anyone knows if there's going to be some kind of video link so that those unfortunates among us who can't make it to this year's Razzie show can join in the fun online??  

RESPONSE from Head RAZZberry: First off, welcome to the Forum! Secondly, sorry to disappoint you, but no, as in years past, there will not be a Live Internet Feed of our show. At this point,we are near capacity on RSVPs for our March 6 show, but you might consider joining and planning to attend next year's 31st Annual RAZZIES. (at which WOLFMAN may, or may not, be a contender). Here (blatant plug) is the http://razzies.com/join.asp -

With all due respect, this is Hollywood, where millions of dollars are burned away like no one's business. With that much money on the line and hundreds of people's jobs on the line, you would think someone would overlook the final project and be able to point out any mistakes that made it through the cracks.

That's exactly my point. I can understand if some older films have gaffs, and indie films, but blockbusters costing millions of dollars? That I just don't get. But I guess it gives us something to laugh about.
If all goes well I'll try and make it over to LA next year for the awards, that would be something special! Shame about the video link, but you all have a great evening!

The biggest disappoint is that the movie still goes by the stupid rule that a person will only turn into a werewolf if the moon is fully exposed for that person to see. The second the moon is blocked by clouds, boom, back into human form the werewolf goes. I really wish that was one aspect of werewolf mythology that would be laid to rest due to the sheer stupidity that we are made to believe the moon's effect can not work through clouds for whatever reason.

I think it's just for the atomsphere and how the British are sterotype as being all well-spoken and proper, so it's only fitting to turn them in savage wolves and what not.

I have seen the Wolfman and I thought it was excellent. I would place it right next too "American Werewolf in London" or"The Howling." It was much better than Say the movie "Wolf" in1995 with Jack Nicholson. The effects in here were outstanding and the gore was definitely there. Don't listen to the negativity. I'm buying the Blue Ray on Tuesday, excellent film. I don't know what in the world your reason for marking it bad is. Benecio Del Toro was a perfect choice for the Wolfman. The effects were astonishing -- not poor like they claim. It's extremely gory and I thought brilliantly filmed. The cinematography is fantastic. 

It's not Shakespeare folks, it's a werewolf film, and in my opinion an excellent one. I can think of plenty of worse garbage out there. "Sex in the City Part 2" anyone?

I'd barely say that the acting was even as much as half-hearted! Same about the plot. I couldn't find a discernable plot within a ten mile radius of the auditorium while watching The Wolfman!

Well, it might have been me, but I thought Anthony Hopkins was just sleepwalking his way through the role, and I could tell a mile away who the original werewolf was going to be. But again, that's just me.

Perhaps, but I'm sure Seltzerberg's "Vampire Movie" will no doubt make us all forget about this movie.

"Wolfman" might get two nods at the most, but I doubt they will even come close to winning anything.

Is any but me very amused that this is now an Oscar-winning movie.

Technically, it is an Oscar winning movie. However, that Oscar was for makeup, and the makeup effects in the movie were pretty good. Without looking it up, name the movie that won for makeup last year. The fact that 99.9% of the movie going population can't answer that question correctly tells you just how important that is in the grand scheme of things.
