Stolen... is exactly right, because it essentially stole plot elements from Taken. That would have been bad enough, but it is worsened by the casting of Nicolas Cage*, who is really asking for a Razzie at this point, and the direction of Simon West, who brought us Con Air, Lara Croft: Tomb Raider, and, most recently, Expendables 2. I o not see how anyone could NOT want to nominate this turkey. So why not nominate it?
*Seriously guys, if he doesn't get a Razzie for Worst Actor this year, he will probably be in a position where we cannot nominate him anymore, and we do not want him to miss out, do we?

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

Worst Supporting Actor: Brendan Fraser/Gimme Shelter and The Nut Job

But if HeadRAZZ said that it's not eligible, what's the point of discussing it?

Vits: To help get Nicolas Cage another well-deserved chance to "win" a Razzie by adding this movie to Seeking Justice and Ghost Rider 2 for Worst Actor, and so Simon West is eligible for Worst Director  (for this along with Expendables 2).

I know that. I was also hoping it would get a forum because of those reasons. But HeadRAZZ said that they can't be nominated because of its small release.

Vits: Seeking Justice and Trespass both had small releases, and yet got Razzie attention, so Stolen should be eligible for nominations as well...

It's not just for being in limited release. It's because the release didn't include the required cities.  


RESPONSE from Head RAZZberry: Vits knows his RAZZIE® Regulations -- We follow the basic guidelines set up to qualify for Oscar consideration, and one of the most basic rules is that a film must play in a regular admission movie theatre for a full week in either L.A. or New York commencing during the calendar year for which it's eligible. STOLEN (though it was briefly released in theatres) failed to meet that specific threshold...
