Hehehe, "Transformers 4: The Search For More Money"! Actually, I think ALL sequels (and remakes) should have that subtitle, at least then the studios would being honest. As for Megan Fox, she's my least concern about this movie as a whole. It looks a lot like it's "Wild, Wild West 2," and that alone is a big problem.

As far as Razzie prospects go, for me this one doesn't stand out among the front-runners (Twilight: Eclipse, Killers, The Spy Next Door, The Bounty Hunter, Furry Vengeance, Vampires Suck are all on my list).  I'll know where I stand on this as soon as the reviews come in at RT and Metacritic.

Nah, it stands out pretty clearly, based on the reason listed above. And there's no way it's getting good reviews on RT or Metacritic. 

I trust HeadRazz -- when he posts something here on the Forum, there's reasoning behind it.

This looks like a disaster. I can totally see this being a camp classic (i.e. "so bad it's good"... kind of like Butterfly or Plan 9 form Outer Space) within the next ten to fifteen years. Will this be a box office bomb? Absolutely. It's opening against Toy Story 3. Granted, this movie wouldn't have made much money even if there was no competition.

Toy Story 3 and this film have two completely different target audiences. In fact, The Karate Kid has more of a chance of getting a dent from Toy Story 3 than Jonah Hex.

True, but Toy Story 3 has a vast demographic (Disney/Pixar). In addition, it has been quite some time since Toy Story 2, which fuels a pretty good amount of anticipation. On the other hand, Jonah Hex has a much smaller demographic, has been poorly promoted, isn't exactly anticipated, and will bomb with critics. Hex won't be making a lot of money.

So? "Karate Kid" and "A-Team" were different target audiences, and "KK" BLEW "A-Team" away. And "Toy Story 3" is going to do the same to "Hex" and any other movie coming out that weekend. Why? Family film = double or triple the tickets being sold.

I don't usually quote Ebert (that's for MWG's usual excuses), but when he says a movie is so bad that his star rating systerm can't get low enough to rank it, you know you have a bad movie. But Centipede only got a limited release, so I doubt enough voting members will see it. But then again, why would anyone want to see a movie about three people being conjoined at their @$$holes?

Y'know, much like Ecks vs. Sever, I kinda guessed that there were enough explosions and gunfights in this movie for at least SOMEONE to like it, but it's got a straight up 00% goose egg goin on at RT at the moment. There's still time, and I feel like there WILL be at least one critic that likes it... I mean, Armond White still has a chance to weigh in, but dang. It looks horrible, and I have no plans to ever see it, but it doesn't look as bad as Disaster Movie.

Correction: 6%.  That's still pretty bad.  The front page says that this is the second-worst movie of the summer.  That may be right, but I don't know how this is gonna fare on the ballot.  Megan Fox will be competing against Jennifer Aniston; Director Jimmy Hayward will be competing against Robert Luketic, Brian Levant and Seltzerberg; and Josh Brolin could be competing against Jackie Chan, Ashton Kutcher and Robert Pattinson.  I would expect none of the folks from Jonah Hex are favored.

I'm just defending it from the hate. I haven't seen the film myself but the reviews seem lukewarm and those who have seen it on demand say it isn't even that graphic. The director himself said there is hardly any blood spilled in the film. Oh, and Roger Ebert is like a friend of mines. I may sometime follow his opinion but we may disagree with each other on some movies. For example, he hated Kick-Ass. Oh, and me being excited for the sequel was just sarcasm.

I honestly hoped that this film would get good reviews, what with it starring Josh Brolin and being based on a pretty good looking comic -- not to mention its having a very stylistic looking trailer. Looks like Megan Fox still has a way to go before she gets respect.   

Speaking of this movie opening up against Toy Story 3, if everyone thinks MWG is a troll, he has nothing on this critic:

He ruins Toy Story 3's perfect 100% RT score, while giving Jonah Hex a positive review!

I'm with Joe Bacon.  I watched the trailer to The Human Centipede, and it's like a gross version of the old dumb horror movies without any of the campy fun.  It's sick, badly acted, badly scripted, badly shot and just a bad concept to begin with.  A doctor goes mad and decides he wants to surgically join several humans together by their digestive tracts to bring the hypothetical "human centipede" into reality.  How can that NOT be a bad movie? 
 
You want clichés?  The Human Centipede starts off with the clichéd car breaking down in a forest at night in the rain so they (in this case, two women) find a house deep in the woods. 
 
I'm all for The Human Centipede getting its own forum.  It doesn't have a snowball's chance in hell of appearing on the nominee ballot, but it shows we Razzie members are on top of any low budget stinkfest that deserves our special attention, like last year's C Me Dance and What Goes Up

As for Jonah Hex being the second worst movie this summer, well, I guess I'll have to see this.  I know The Expendables will be the worst, but I can't imagine Seltzerberg's Vampires Suck, scheduled for release in August, won't be in contention with Jonah Hex for second. 
 
But hey, that's like being in a battle for the bottom of the dung heap.  
 
Will any of them do well at the box office?  We already know the answer for Jonah Hex.

Moviewizguy -- Have you ever stopped to wonder, if a movie is universally hated, there might be a reason for it? Not every movie should be defended! Sure, there's no blood in Centipede, but it's as cliched as can be...and can you really defend a movie about people being surgically connected by their bowels?

Say what you want about Megan Fox, but she is nowhere near the pit of badness that Christina DeMarco was in C Me Dance. I saw the trailer to that film, and I thought it was one of the biggest jokes of our generation. It's also a spit at religion like Tyler Perry's films are. And we're calling Megan Fox a bad actress? Farcical. http://www.imdb.com/name/nm2759113/ -

Human Centipede is not universally loved either. But I'm also talking about this constant need of yours to defend movies just because everyone else hates them. When a movie is being called bad by a large number of people, chances are it's because it IS bad. And when you say otherwise, it doesn't come across as you knowing better than these people, it comes across as "I'm going to say otherwise just so that I'll seem different!"

Oh wait, she's only successful if she's standing next to giant, poorly rendered, CGI robots!

So I finally got around to see this today and Megan Fox is, if anything, a Worst Supporting Actress contender.  She has maybe only ten minutes of screentime and pales in comparison to the terrible supporting actors John Malkovich, Will Arnett, and Wes Bentley.  Votes should be reserved for Josh Brolin, Malkovich, and Arnett.  If Fox makes the Worst Actress line-up, it'll be because voters didn't watch the movie.  (She really isn't a lead at all.)  I guess a Supporting Actress nomination wouldn't bother me too much.

Hey, he's got my vote.  I loved him as G.O.B. on Arrested Development and Devon Banks on 30 Rock.  But watching him do "serious" acting is like watching a kid playing dress-up.  It'd be cute if it wasn't so damn sad.

Yes, "Mom And Dad Save The Universe" was pretty damn bad. However, it was still within the realm of good taste. I'm not sure how one grades that movie against one about a mad doctor who is obsessed with connection three people together by their bowels!

Why the hell was Fox even in this movie? She appears in like 5 or 6 scenes, none of which are longer than 3 minutes, she speaks in the same monotone voice and her face is frozen in the same blank expression the whole time. They could have picked any random woman off the street to play this role, and no one would notice the difference! 

But then again, overall, the whole movie sucked anyway. I thought it was better than "Wild Wild West." However, that's not saying much!

I just saw it.

I don't know what happened.It started with such promise.The first 1/2 hour was very entertaining with the dialogue and the stylish action.But all of the sudden the plot became dull.Probably because this has the narrative of a comic book,not a movie.As for the soundtrack,is well suited but is not for everyone.

Usually,I find something redeeming in Fox's performances but not here.However,her role was too small.I know it's been stablished someone can be the lead despite a short screen time,but here I found her to be supporing.Anyway,Malkovich is about on the same level as her,and Brolin is a lot worse.And Michael Fassbender had one of the worst accents in movie history(I thought I'd bring this up since you nomined her accent instead of his).

I give this 4/10.

I really don't know which was the worst "weird western" flick, this or "Wild Wild West". There's nothing redeeming about this movie. Everyone in it is just line-reading and the events of the plot don't have any flow to them, they just happen for the sake of moving the story along. Warner Bros can't get any of their comic book movies right outside of Batman!

Time to review Jonah Hex, one of the weirdest movies in recent memory. I'm convinced that executive meddling played a part in its weirdness. It's shorter than most movies and it's PG-13 despite being written by the usually R-rated Neveldine/Taylor team. However, I haven't found any evidence of executive meddling ocurring, so I won't mention it in the body of the review.

Josh Brolin is entertaining as the title character. He does the best with the crappy material he's given and he has a couple of good one-liners (i.e. "Christ, women, how many men do you see in a day?", "Cut mine shaving, what you do to yours?"). Michael Fassbender is really good as Burke, villain Quentin Turnbull's insane Irish sidekick and Michael Shannon has a neat little cameo as the proprieter of a gladiator circus. Cinematography-wise, this is one of the most gorgeous awful movies in recent memory.

There are several weird examples of stunt-casting in the film. Will Arnett has a bit-part as a Union soldier who informs Jonah about the bounty on Turnbull's head. Oddly, he plays the role straight. Why bother hiring a famous comedian for a small role if you're not going to do anything funny with him? I could see if it was a bigger role and he was trying to break into dramatic roles, but his role is so small, I forgot he was in here until I looked at the cast list again. It's like Margaret Cho in One Missed Call. Aidan Quinn has a small role as President Ulysses S. Grant. The casting director must have been drunker than Grant ever was when Quinn was cast. Quinn looks nothing like Grant and he's not well-known enough to entice audiences like Lee Daniels' The Butler did. John Malkovich is bland as Quentin Turnbull. I'd say more, but, from what I hear, he only did this movie (and Transformers 3) because he was one of the people who was bilked by Bernie Madoff and he needed money desperately. Don't want to kick a man when he's down.

The biggest issue with the movie is director Jimmy Hayward. To put it bluntly, he has no talent at directing action. I was bored during the action scenes in this film. They were so boring, that I got more enjoyment and thrills out of the talking scenes. An example of his clumsy directing is when Hex ambushes Turnbull by hiding in red sand. The scene is poorly set-up (i think it might have been a flashback, but I'm not sure) and poorly shot. They should have let Neveldine/Taylor direct. They're good at directing action movies. The Crank movies were good and scenes in Ghost Rider 2 where Ghost Rider actually shows up were fun. Apparently, one of the directors who almost got the job was McG and Hayward's direction is so bad that McG might have actually been a step-up!!! Why did they let a director who's only previous film was a forgettable animated film direct this? You could ask why Brad Bird was chosen to do a live action movie as well but, as shown with The Incredibles, he knows how to do action. Megan Fox is incredibly bad as Lilah. Sure, Fox is an insanely beautiful woman, but her acting is sh*t. Also, her character was incredibly pointless. The only thing of note that she did was get kidnapped towards the end.

Jimmy Hayward's new movie http://www.razzies.com/forum/forum-members-discussion-of-free-birds_topic6341.html - Free Birds comes out today. If your child has been misbehaving or failed a test recently, I'd recommend taking him or her to see it as punishment.

My grade: D-

Next-up: I don't really have anything planned. The next reveiw will probably be After Earth.

I read that Will Arnett fought to take the role because he did not want to be type-cast in comedic roles. 

Also, it's a bit of a stretch to claim that people don't know who Ulysses S. Grant is.

Elizabeth Hartman and Judith Barsi are more talented and beautiful than Scarlett Johansson and Chloe Grace Moretz. Fact.

1.) Hadn't heard about that. Still, if he wanted to do a dramatic role, he could have done one with more screen-time. Of course, he could have had more screen-time originally, which gives more credit to my idea that executive meddling played a part with the film's undoing.

2.) No, I meant Aidan Quinn wasn't well-known. Most of the actors playing the presidents in Lee Daniels' The Butler didn't look anything like the presidents they played, but they were well-known enough that the makers could justify their weird casting.
