Subject: Member-Started Forum: I AM NUMBER FOUR
Date Posted: February 17 2011 at 10:54am
NOW THAT WE'RE HALFWAY INTO FEBRUARY, IT'S LIKELY THAT NEW RELEASES WON'T BE FORGOTTEN BY THE END OF THE YEAR LIKE THOSE IN JANUARY. THAT COULD BE THE CASE FOR "I AM NUMBER TWO FOUR". SINCE THE RAZZIE RADAR IS BUSY WITH  http://www.razzies.com/forum/discussion-addl-info-on-big-momma-like-father-like-son_forum493.html -  THIS WEEK (AND SOME USERS FELT THE NEED FOR THIS FILM TO ALSO HAVE A FORUM) I DECIDED TO DO SOMETHING ABOUT IT.

THE LAST DECADE PROVED THAT SUPER-HERO MOVIES CAN BE GOOD. BUT IT ALSO PROVED THAT IF YOUR STORY FOCUSES MORE ON BEING ABOUT TEENS AND/OR FOR TEENS, THE RESULTS CAN BE UGLY. SO THIS MOVIE COULD BE THE BIGGEST BOX OFFICE HIT OF THE YEAR AND THE BIGGEST CRITICAL FLOP OF THE YEAR, ALL IN ONE.
 
IT STARS NEWCOMER http://www.imdb.com/name/nm1641117 - , AND I THINK THAT WOULD'VE BEEN A MUCH COOLER NAME FOR THE CHARACTER. IT CO-STARS http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0648249 - AND http://www.imdb.com/name/nm1872698/ - , WHO AT LEAST HAVE SHOWN THEY'RE GOOD TV ACTORS. IT'S DIRECTED BY http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0142286 - (THE SOMEHOW-NOT-NOMINEE "EAGLE EYE") AND IT'S WRITTEN BY USUAL TV WRITER http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0637497/ - AND http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0332184/ - & http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0587692 - , THE BERRY DEFINITION OF HIT-OR-MISS.

BASED ON EVERYTHING STATED ABOVE, I PREDICT THE BEST PART OF THIS MOVIE WILL BE IT'S ADDITION TO THE DEBATE OF "IS  http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0000881/awards - - -  WORSE AS A DIRECTOR OR AS A PRODUCER?".

 
 
PETTYFER: "The paparazzi! They still must be wondering if we're dating"
AGRON: "Oh, no! What if they see that we're actually reading from cards?"

Nice work, Vits.

As for the question if Michael Bay is worst as a director or a producer. I'd say director because he can do more direct harm to the picture. Eventhough he also seem to have an extremely bad track record when it comes to producing (almost every single horror-remake in the last few years).

Even as a producer, you can sense Bay's directorial influence on the movie, like his music-video-style pacing, poor writing, so-so performances, etc. The man simply has no business being in the movie business!

Come on, Metacritic! Give this another negative review! At least Rotten Tomatoes already gave it a 29% (very bad, but not the worst this year). To HeadRAZZ: Please add this to your official contenders list at your earliest convenience!
 
As for the film itself, it's an adaptation of a sci-fi alien novel, where the mission is to save the 4th unit of an alien agency (?) after his three predecessors have been killed. But you know what they say about Michael Bay's production credits. Besides, you put this in the hands of a director with that resume, and you see how well it turns out.

Rotten Tomatoes has a concensus:
 
"It's positioned of the as the start of a franchise, but "I Am Number Four"'s familiar plot and unconvincing performances add up to one noisy, derivative, and ultimately forgettable sci-fi thriller".

Note to Hollywood: I know this is very hard for you to understand or consider, but maybe, just maybe ... you should release a single, stand-alone movie, wait and see how audiences take to it, and then IF the movie is well-liked by critics and audiences alike, THEN turn it into a franchise. 

Crazy idea, isn't it?

The insanely poor casting choices on Mr. Brooks didn't help either. Kevin Costner = hasn't had a hit movie in over a decade. Demi Moore = never really taken all that seriously. Dane Cook = unfunny comedian who is only famous for his online fan following. That doesn't sound like a winning line-up to me.

What are Burn and Vits talking about? Mr Brooks wasn't THAT poorly recieved. 56% positive on RT -- not really anything to write home to, but not something to shoot yourself in the head after watching either.

Yes,that movie's reviews were only average.But critics disliked the movie for the same reasons I did:
 
 
 
HAVE YOU EVER MET A "MR. BROOKS"?YOU HAVE?SORRY(*/*****):
 

The main problem with the story is that it seems it's made up as it goes along.
 
The main problem with the premise is that BROOKS & MARSHALL barely argue,making the latter kind of pointless.Their conversations are voice-over thougths split in two and said out loud.At least it isn't narrating.If it was it would tell us the obvious.
 
The main problem with the script is that it tries so hard to engage us to watch the trilogy with the same methods(like leaving loose ends)that a TV pilot would use(it originally was a TV show)that it doesn't become aware that a trilogy can't happen if people don't like the first movie,and people won't like it if they see only a first act.
 

Grades: F in the U.S. and 1,0 in Chile.

I wouldn't be too sure about no sequels. All a movie needs to do in order to have a sequel greenlit (or in these days, a SERIES of sequels) is break even at the box office, or through DVD sales. I'm sure this is just a minor speed bump before Mr. Bay moves ahead with a sequel after he is done whipping his ass with the "Transformers" movies.

Acording to the article, it had a worse opening day than either Jumper or Percy Jackson & The Olympians, (two films that flopped and therefor never had sequels). I highly doubt that this film will break even on its 50 million dollar budget...

Here's my review of I Am Number Four which I saw this evening. 
After seeing it again on DVD, I'm revising my review.

I thought action thrillers were supposed to be about action. The film drones on for nearly 45 minutes with the standard high school drama that you've come to know and hate. Then it finally gets around to the action we paid to see.  It's like they made a point to include all the cliches of this genre. Especially in the love story, it didn't feel genuine. The lack of chemistry between the only moderately talented actors doesn't help. 

For that matter, nothing in this film felt genuine. Some characters and plot points seemed so out of place and irrelevant, it's like they were just going through a check list of things to set up for future films. And of course the film's ending was obviously designed as the beginning of a franchise ("I Am Number Five"), but the lackluster box office performance doesn't make the case for a sequel. 

There's honestly not one scene in this film that feels original or rings true, besides exhausted teenager drama. Nothing kept me on the edge of my seat. Lines of dialogue that were supposed to funny and clever, simply weren't. They, like this whole movie, fell flat. 

This entire film is a compilation of clichés and dreadfully familiar narrative. The only credit I give the film makers is for not following the crowd by adding cheap 3D effects. 

Final Verdict: Ill-conceived, misguided and shamelessly derivative, I Am Number Four succeeds only as an unintentional comedy.
Final Grade:  F

Razzie Recommendations:
Worst Picture
Worst Actor - Alex Pettyfer (perhaps a double nominee with Beastly)
Worst Screenplay
Worst Director - DJ Caruso
Worst Supporting Actor - Kevin Durand
Worst Prequel, Sequel, Remake or Ripoff (of Twilight Saga)
Worst Screen Couple or Screen Ensemble: The Entire Cast of I Am Number Four


-------------
Worst Picture, Director & Script: Twilight
Actor: Nick Cage
Actress: K Stew
S. Actor: Ken Jeong
S. Actress: David Spade
Couple: Sandler and Sandler
Sequel: Hangover II
Ensemble: New Year's Eve cast

Because my worst picture list is as follows:

Big Momma 3
The Green Hornet
Justin Bieber 3D
Season of the Witch
The Roommate.


Although, I think they ought to start nominating 10 movies for Worst Picture, since the Oscars started doing that. 
If they had 10 for worst picture, I think Killers, Marmaduke, Grown Ups, Piranha 3D and Jonah Hex would have been nominated as well.

RESPONSE from Vits: I just saw this, and it's everything you can expect. A plot borrowed from every CW show, with decent action sequences and an ending both borrowed from every anime show, and a mythology that feels as if they wrote it in one afternoon.

Pettyfer* just poses for the camera. Agron is decent, and they have good chemistry. But the dialogue is laughable.

And of course,the plot holes:
-I can buy that the Mogadorians speak english, but they should've explained it. Specially since they speak fluently.
-If the Mogadorians kill by number order, why did they try to kill NUMBER 6 first (they must have since they killed her guardian)?
-If SARAH is such an expert in photography, why did she ask JOHN to show his "lights" in the dark room?
-Did SAM give any explanation to his mom as to why he's leaving town with the "terrorist"?
-Didn't anyone cared that the dog almost sacrificed himself?

I give this 3/10.

*I want him for consideration. Maybe Worst Picture and Remake as well, but not Actress, Supp. Actor/Actress, Couple/Ensemble, Director or Screenplay (the movie pays respect to the book, even if the latter is also a piece of sh*t).

Firstly, I haven't seen the film although from what I understand the same premise of the 9 being killed "in order" still holds true.  Correct?
 
Well...  Perhaps someone can help me with a bit of a plothole I can't wrangle my head around.
 
(In white for those who don't want spoliers)
 
So, if the 9 can only be killed in order, also John Smith is quite specific regarding the charm which protects them, then why do the "bad guys" try and kill Number 6 when she is pretty much immune to their attacks?
 
The book states "any damage done to the Loric with the charm will immediately be done back to the user, so if someone were to shoot me in the head the bullet would exit my skull and return to theirs".  So...  Why does Six get shot, stabbed and wounded and we are given the impression that she's under threat when the charm that protects her and the other 5 should make them pretty much immune warriors.
 
Right?
 
So...  How can Six be hurt if she has a charm directly designed to protect against harm?  Even against Alien weapons.
 
Cheers 'n thanks!

Based on that post, I would guess "no". When the best comment you can make is that the lead actor or actress is hot, it's not saying much about the rest of the movie.

I've been putting this one off.
 
The good:
 
Teresa Palmer: She's cool and hot. She should have been the main character! She's more masculine than Alex Pettyfer! She was a bright spot in the, also, disastrous but not as disastrous Take Me Home Tonight.
 
The dog: The dog was pretty cool as well. The movie should have been those two fighting aliens.
 
Dianna Agron's hotness: Ms. Agron is very hot. That's all I have to say.
 
The bad:
 
Jake Abel: Abel is a hack of an actor who plays a hack of a role.
 
Dianna Agron's acting: Agron may be hot but she can't act at all. I don't watch Glee, so I can't compare her acting to her other performances.
 
J.S. Cardone: This hack directed Eagle Eye and Disturbia. He shows no talent as a director. And this bastard is gonna direct a Preacher movie. DAMMIT!
 
The ugly:
 
Alex Pettyfer: This pretty-boy hack can't act. He's as stiff as wood, but without the redeeming qualities like the ability to keep warm in the winter.
 
The aliens: Remember how I said that the Battle: LA aliens were dumb-looking? Well that've got nothing on these pathetic invaders.
 
The death of originality: Everything in this movie is stolen from something else. The romance is between a small-town girl and a boy who can sparkle with powers. The thing from another planet makes friends with a boy named Sam who doesn't know he's from another planet at first. The bad guy is bald guy with no nose and killed the main character's parents. I could go on for hours.
 
Wow! That was a bad one. I should mention that the book that this was based on was ghost-written by James Frey, the guy who bamboozled Oprah. Grade: D-
 
Next-up: I Hope They Serve Beer In Hell (special review), Passion Play, or Something Borrowed!
 
Also, before I end this review; here's a shot that I got from the Trespass trailer. Enjoy:

Actually, Teresa Palmer is Australian so I don't think she's a long lost sister of Kristen Stewart, but I found it pretty funny.

Teresa Palmer and Kristen Stewart are an interesting Yin Yang comparison: Palmer gives good performances, yet her movies are flops, while Stewart gives terrible performances, yet are major hits.

Yeah, long lost all the way to Australia, like "The Parent Trap".

You see, they are each other's mirror image!

RESPONSE from Vits: Don't forget that Kristen has that next door girl beauty while Teresa has a more obvious sexyness.

True. Kristen has the moody, emo girl thing down, to the point I don't believe her in any role where she is NOT brooding all the time. Meanwhile, Teresa (who has appeared nude on screen) is all "I'm going to sex you up until you lose all feeling below your waist!"

RESPONSE from Vits: Just to clarify, I'm not saying "Miss Emo On-Screen/Punk Off-Screen" is ugly. She's actually berry beautiful. I'm poiting out that because these girlz have different types of beauty, it all comes down to taste.

You weren't saying it, I was. Emo/punk is not sexy at all, my opinion.

RESPONSE from Vits: Correct. That's one of the downsides of her being in THE RUNAWAYS: we got to look at her with all that make-up that could make any girl look bad. And of the upsides of the saga we must not speak of is she doesn't wear much make-up and just looks naturally good.

I don't know, even without the make-up, Stewart looks either high or half-asleep most of the time.
