I am shocked that One for the Money is not on the list. I mean, Abraham Lincoln Vampire Hunter was not a good idea, but One for the Money was just... much more insulting in a way.
 
I actually thought (hoped?) that the fact that Oogieloves did so much worse than John Carter would actually push Carter out of the running -- but I guess that's not the case. Oh, well!  
 
From that list, I would agree with the 5 front-runners (except for Oogieloves, only because there's a chance a lot of voting members did not hear about it). I would replace that with the last Twilight Saga. 

The winner, I believe, should be Battleship.

Another year with too few nomination spots and way too many contenders!   

My front-runners are The Devil Inside and That's My Boy.  

I'd also say Ghost Rider Two, but giving it a nomination for Worst Sequel only would save a spot for other bad movies, since it has a good shot at winning in that category -- Same for Wrath of the Titans. 

I, too, think One for the Money is missing on the list, and so is The Cold Light of Day (although maybe not enough voters might have seen it?)... 

My 5th slot is still vacant, since I have yet to see Atlas Shrugged Part II.  

For people who want to see Breaking Dawn Part 2 nominated, they can always argue that even though it's the last one, with 47% at RT, and after so many shots at making something good, they still weren't able to make it the best reviewed film of the franchise!

This year, it seems like the bulk of our contenders were released in January, February, March, and June. Here are my choices for Worst Picture:  
 
The Devil Inside  
One For the Money  
A Thousand Words  
That's My Boy  
 
and, if it means Breaking Dawn Part 2 won't be a Worst Picture finalist...
 
Battleship.
 
If I were HeadRAZZ, I'd just take Twilight 5 and John Carter off the table for Worst Picture. But I suppose the fact that critics didn't mind John Carter doesn't matter if we have a 1/5 Gigadollar write-off by Disney to worry about. Like Breaking Dawn Part 2, recommending John Carter for Worst Picture is probably a matter of principle at the expense of the two films' own merits over the 5 films I listed above. 

Oh God, I hope One For the Money can beat John Carter and Twilight 5 for the final five in Worst Picture!  
 
PS: I almost said "John Clarter" again because I keep mixing up Carter with Clark, two of the 50 most common surnames in the US.

Here's my picks: 
 
My only Rotten Asshole of the Year, Atlas Shrugged Part II, is an obvious pick. Three other spots on my list are devoted to trends that I loathe: Making movies out of anything (Battleship), found footage movies made by dumb-asses (The Devil Inside), and movies that star Katherine Heigl (One For The Money). For my last slot, it was either That's My Boy or A Thousand Words, and it was a hard choice. Well, it was hard until the incest scene from That's My Boy. That put Sandler's folly ahead of Murphy's in terms of BAD-ness.

Oh, so many candidates! But if I had to pick right now:  

1) 2016: Obama's America--Dinesh D'Souza (Who should be nominated for WORST ACTOR, too!) proves that he's really DIMWIT D' STUPID!  

2) Eddie Murphy's utterly asinine A THOUSAND TURDS, er, WORDS  

3) The incredibly tacky second installment to SUPERTRAIN, THE MOTION PICTURE, er, ATLAS SHAGGED PART 2  

4) Adam Sandler deserves another ROTTEN RAZZING for THAT'S MY BOY  

5) I got to agree with Head Razz -- we got to give a trouser cough to THE OOGIELOVES!

My top 3 Worst Picture picks at this point: 

1. A Thousand Words--I only need one: WHY? Did Murphy suddenly believe that sitting in storage for 4 years would make this better?  
 
2. That's My Boy--This is a catastrophe. Sandler seems to be under the impression that somehow his movies will get better if they get progressively tackier and more insulting.  
 
3. Atlas Shrugged Part 2--We can only hope that they've run out of money and there will be no part 3. This movie was so irrelevant that only 21 critics bothered to review it (and only 1 of them even gave it a tepid endorsement).

I don't know if it was Murphy's decision to shelve 1000 WORDS for 4 years... 

LOL

Seriously, though, I think it's better late than never. I may sound like Ed Wood, but film footage (or actually the movie itself) should never be wasted.

To JoeBacon: Because so few people saw 2016: Obama's America, I can't endorse it for Worst Picture. But I'll probably squawk like a parakeet if it's not one of three Worst Political Propaganda Movie finalists. 

Sorry Antilsu, but even fewer people saw Occupy Unmasked in even fewer theatres than Obama's America, and even the RAZZIE voters who know a thing or two about this year's political propaganda pieces know about only 3 such films far above all others: Obama's America, Last Ounce of Courage (which had more Rotten Reviews than Occupy Unmasked), and of course, Atlas Shrugged Part II. I'll totally FLIP if Shrugged 2 isn't at least a runner-up for Worst Political Propaganda Movie! 

But I have no choice but to leave it up to the GRAF's discretion on whether there's enough political propaganda releases to name 5 finalists for Worst Political Propaganda Movie, or whether it should be left at 3. (Worst Original Song, to my memory, only had 3 nominees in the past.)  
 
To The Larch: If you happened to start an unofficial subforum for A Little Bit of Heaven, I have yet to read it. If you didn't, then maybe I'll start it as a "Worst Leftover Limited Release From This Past Spring."
 
To Antilsu: I'd almost forgotten about Chernobyl Diaries. Can someone remind me again why it didn't get a forum back on May 25?
 
To HeadRAZZBerry: Reading Antilsu's recommendations, I ask: How come The Lucky One couldn't beat Darling Companion for Worst New Movie of the Weak for April 20? And how did Step Up Revolution beat out The Watch for the Worst of July 27?

I don't see the Larch on this discussion, what did he say? Did he delete the post?
 
I tried to remind people about Chernobyl, but they just seemed to shrug it off.
 
Have no idea about the Lucky One/Darling Companion thing, but about Step Up Rev/Watch... that might have been partly my fault. Reason being was that I sugested to HeadRazz that he should do Step Up Rev because it seemed to be the more obvious choice at that time, but I did try to have him put it up a week early. I did feel like at the time The Watch could go either way, and I thought it would be safer to post the more obvious one first so he would have time for the other one. I guess he wasn't too interested in making a forum, so I just made a forum for him, and he just linked people to that. Sorry about that.

Because DC has more past winners and/or nominees and/or repeat offenders.

Sequels, specially to movies that didn't even deserve nor needed them, have more chances than an original comedy.

To oiram: The Larch didn't post here, but he's the one who's pressuring us to RAZZ A Little Bit of Heaven. Around the time I finish grooming myself for Thanksgiving tonight, I'm going to make an attempt to start a forum for it. Then and only then can I measure just how badly we at the forum, and more importantly the voters themselves, want Heaven RAZZed, and whether it actually has half a chance!
 
About The Watch. I seem to recall now that HeadRAZZ got hit with a family obligation at the last minute. He said he'd put up an official forum for The Watch, but because you thought he'd never make one, you hopped right to it instead. Now it's an unofficial RAZZIE contender with less than half the odds of getting RAZZed than if you would've just waited for HeadRAZZ to return.
 
To Vits: First Wanderlust, then Darling Companion. Are scale of release and critical panning second to the question of who's in the films in deciding forums at certain times? And if so, what are the circumstances where "Who" is more important than "How Bad?"

Here are my preferred nominees for Worst Picture (I don't care if any of them have little chance of winning): 

1) Project X: This is just $h!^ from beginning to end. The main characters cause major destruction and yet we're supposed to be on their side? What a load of bu//$h!^. Also, Oliver Cooper deserves a Worst Actor nomination. He should be eligible for Worst Actor (not supporting) because his character, Costa, is one of the movie's "three amigos" and of course his acting is terrible. 

2) The Devil Inside: This is another video footage movie that deserves condemnation. The "scares" are not scary at all. The ending is also anti-climatic. 

3) That's My Boy: You know something is wrong when the movie seems to condone a teacher molesting a kid. Not only is this movie horrible it is also disappointing. It is disappointing because this could have been a decent satire (i.e. how there seems to be double standards for male and female teachers and how the media "report" scandals). 

4) The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn- Part I: A combination of bad acting; easy-to-laugh-AT script ,and a horrible screen couple (Taylor Lautner and MacKenzie Foy) should make this final (I hope) chapter of the saga worthy of a Razzie. 

5) One For the Money: A combination of an annoying Katherine Heigl, poor direction and irritating screenplay should make this worthy of a nomination.

Also, The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn- Part II might not be the final chapter of this dreadful series. There are rumors circling of a continuation of the story of the werewolves or one of the other minor characters.

With so many bad horror movies this year, I think it makes sense to bring back the Worst Excuse for a Horror Movie category. Choices include: 

- The Devil Inside 
- The Apparition 
- The Possession 
- Silent Hill 
- The Chernobyl Diaries 
- Piranha 3DD 
- House at the End of the Street  


RESPONSE from Head RAZZberry: As a rule, to be considered a viable "category," there should be at least 10 or more possible contenders -- Otherwise, there's little interest or suspense about the outcome. And whatever the subject of the "Special Category" is, it should address a strong and obvious trend in that year's movie titles. If you'll check our 32 year history, you'll also see that we have, to date, never repeated any of the Special Categories we've already done...  

At this point, and for the above-mentioned reasons, it's looking more and more like we won't be doing a "Special Category" for our 2012 Awards. We may, however, do special, individual "Governor's Awards" for specific "achievements" not covered by our 10 basic categories...

Now that I think about it, HeadRAZZ has a point: The last decade was full of unforgettably bad horror movies (not just remakes). It would be weird for us to award Worst Excuse for a Horror Movie after that trend has finished. There are still bad horror movies, but not a lot of them really memorable for being bad. In MBH's list, only THE DEVIL INSIDE is a likely Razzie finalist. A few others have been mentioned for acting categories, but I don't think they have much chance. And the rest were immediately forgettable.

Well, that makes sense. Out of my list I have seen Chernobyl Diaries and House at the End of the Street, which both were forgettable, Piranha 3DD which to me is more of a stupid movie than a terrible movie. And of course Devil Inside, which was absoutely terrible and with the constant screaming was a pain to watch, and should be the only strong contender for Worst Picture from that list above.

Rock of Ages? You mean that film that stars nobody that many people are familiar with and opened against That's My Boy back on June 15? Not only was That's My Boy way worse, but Rock of Ages, with an approval rating in the low 40s, cannot be considered a critical failure by any means. If you're concerned about the box office bomb factor, I think a little too much emphasis has gone towards that this year. It's bad enough that John Carter is bound to get RAZZed for anything except Taylor Kitsch (I don't know the reason why his roles caught so much heat from us), and that I have to fight so hard to keep Twilight: Breaking Dawn Part 2 from getting a Worst Picture nomination, but where is the end to all the Forum campaigning for mixed-reviewed/average films?  
 
Maybe you should stick to your campaign for A Little Bit of Heaven. At least THAT got panned by critics and stars Kate Hudson, whom we all recognize.
 
Anyways, I realize it'll do me no good to write in a vote for The Apparition for Worst Picture, so I don't think I'll be nominating any films released after June for this category.

Don't worry, GTA. This is the only time anyone has ever suggested ROA for Worst Picture. It was suggested that Tom Cruise could get a Worst Actor nod for that and JACK REACHER, but it seems the latter may turn out to be a good movie.

Something tells me Twilight will pull off a Lord of the Rings-style triumph this year. The earlier films all got piles of nominations but seldom won anything and I think (like the Oscars) the voters here were saving up for the final installment.
There is one stumbler to this: the last film was the best-reviewed of the group, and the RT score isn't at all awful. On its own merits this film may not deserve to win but the built-up desire over the years to give this series a good hosing may carry it to a big, Jack & Jill-style sweep.
I have to admit I have a place in my heart for Battleship (wanting to see it win, that is) - a lot of my friends who I trained with this summer had a great time watching it, and wouldn't stop bringing it up or quoting it for weeks afterwards. (Even stranger is that these are usually pretty bright guys!) I finally got around to seeing it on ship with some of the engineers and we collectively agreed to turn it off after about thirty or forty minutes. We had no expectations for it but even so . . .

One idea for a new category (this is one where there's never a shortage) is Worst Prestige Picture. Every year around this time there are plenty of big studio releases where everyone can see past the big stars or hot subject matter and tell that  they were made purely to get accolades (whether critical raves or Academy nominations) and have nothing real to say or give to anyone. The remake a few years ago of All the King's Men is perhaps the best recent example of this, but you can find plenty every year (including usually one on the Oscars' final five - just look at all those nominations for Stephen Daldry and Lasse Hallstrom!).< ="application/x-dap-" id="DAPPlugin" style="visibility: collapse">
