How do we do this. Can Ashley Greene be nominated for Worst Actress for BOTH this AND Twilight 5?  


RESPONSE from Head RAZZberry: In this film, Greene should be considered for Worst Actress, but in the TWILIGHT films she plays one of the siblings of Pattinson's character, a part that is decidedly a "supporting" role. 

Not sure if she's worth using up two nominations on, though...

So far, Ashley Greene's role in all 4 TWILIGHT installments has been very small, without giving her a chance to be good or bad. I doubt that changes in BREAKING DAWN PART 2, so if she does get nominated, I think it should be for Worst Actress for the 2 movies.

May I remind you that Rob Schneider was nominated for Worst Actor in 2006 for Benchwarmers and Little Man, the later of which he was in for about less than five minutes. Another example is Cuba Gooding Jr. He was nominated Worst Actor in 2007 for Daddy Day Camp and Norbit, and again, Cuba's role was not big enough to be considered a lead. Going back further, 1998 to be exact, Bruce Willis won Worst Actor for Armageddon, Mercury Rising, and The Siege, the last of which had DENZEL WASHINGTON as the main star, not Willis.

Ashley Greene was in also in movie that not a lot of people saw: Skateland. And she was pretty bad in it -- so this is not a case of the Twilight franchise dragging down a promising star like Robert Pattinson.

That's exactly why I suggested it. When someone appears in more than 1 bad movie in a year, they sometimes receive a "conjoined" nomination for all the titles. That's why Nick Swarsdon was nominated for Worst Actor and Worst Supp. Actor: all 3 of his 2011 performances were awful.

I decided to read more about this movie, but it seems nobody knows anything about it (did any of you ever see a trailer?). 

The premise is very basic: a ghost is haunting the house of a young couple, and they call an expert in the supernatural. The funny thing is that Tom Felton plays the expert -- I just can't picture it!

So far, this has 6 reviews... and the most positive gives it a 1/5!
 
(edit: the site that gave this a 1/5 doesn't give out zeros, so it's not technically the most positive. The new most positive is a tie between a .5 out 4 and a D-!)

The average rating on RT is a 0.7/10. That's a first! And to think I was actually looking forward to it. Cry

MWG, for once I'm with you on that. I too was looking forward to The Apparition. But when it got pushed back, then got pushed back again, and then got pushed to the next year, I sensed it having problems. But as of now, it looks not only to be bad, but THAT bad, as in possible RAZZIE contender, so my excitement about it has reached an even higher level now!

I saw an interview snippet over a year ago, where Green was calling the movie extremely scary, and Tom Felton said noone recognizes him in England and in America girls go nuts when he shows up. I am very curious about his talent, I thought I saw something good in his performance in the sixth Harry Potter, and he was good enough in The Disappeared and Planet of Apes.

Ashley Green hasn't bothered me so far, but I have no idea about her acting range. Too bad for her that Apparition will be people's first impression on her acting skills.

I thought the Twilight movies were the people's first impression of Ashley Greene??

As mentioned before, Greene's role in the TWILIGHT saga has been too small to judge her as an actress.

By the way, she was also in L.O.L. (another reason to nominate that movie, even if it isn't eligible).

Ashley Green is a very pretty girl -- That is the only impression I have of her. I can't tell if she is capable of a challenging role, but I wouldn't put it past her, either. 

In LOL, did she say anything of note, apart from chosing the red wine? Her job in that was looking hot -- not acting.

Seems that there won't be. It'll stay under 5%.

"It fails to offer anything original, it isn't particularly scary, and offers so little in the way of dramatic momentum that it's more likely to put you to sleep than thrill you".

Time to review one of the laziest horror movies in recent memory. It does nothing original, blatantly stealing from other, better movies.

There's one scene that I really like and by that I mean the scene is so hilarious that it's funny. There's a scene where Ashley Greene and Bucky Barnes drive from their home and the garage door closes. Then the door opens on its own. It's supposed to be scary, but it's such a low-stakes "scare" that I was laughing my ass off.

Tom Felton (or, as I'll refer to him in the rest of the review, Draco Malfoy) plays an annoying college student. He, Bucky, and another girl played by Julianna Guill try to talk to a dead person. Because this is a crappy horror movie, something goes wrong and Guill gets taken. His character is a massive idiot too. Everything he does to try and take care of the entity involves doing the same thing except with more power. Is it any wonder that he's the first of the lead characters to go?

Ashley Greene is an absolutely awful actress. She has no talent beyong being insanely hot. The big problem with her is that she doesn't give off any discernable emotions. Even Kristen Stewart gives off emotions better. Also really bad is Bucky Barnes as her boyfriend. He's being haunted by a demonic entity and doesn't tell Greene about it until she's become involved. So yeah, it's Paranormal Activity except it's the guy being haunted. This goes hand-in-hand with my assertion that the film does nothing original. Virtually every scene was used in Paranormal Activity. The scenes that aren't stolen from that are stolen from HP Lovecraft and Poltergeist. One thing that the film does that seriously annoyed me was the faux-found footage scenes. There's scenes where the perspective is shown from the camera for no in-story reason. Out-of-story, it was done to make the film seem like Paranormal Activity.

I tried to live Tweet this film when I first saw it, but I got so bored I couldn't actually do it. Grade: F

Next-up: One Missed Call!
