It may make me seem like a spoilsport, but I feel like I gotta ask: Who's even going to remember this movie a year from now (when the 2013 nominating ballot comes out)?  

The Devil Inside, which had everything that should be necessary to get Razzie nominations, came out around this same time a year ago...and wound up with ZERO Razzie nods!

RESPONSE from Head RAZZberry: While the argument above may have merit (I, too, was surprised that http://www.razzies.com/forum/discussion-addl-info-on-the-devil-inside_forum591.html - ® nominees).

I know this forum is more about the lost money, but... on Metacritic, more than half the reviews are mixed rather than negative. From there, the consensus attached to the Tomatometer says that like Battleship, people are bound to like it if they're easy to satisfy, so those redeeming factors must've come on those critics' own terms. Texas Chainsaw 3D and A Haunted House got worse reviews. Even if they didn't lose as much money, are they still being considered serious RAZZIE contenders as well? A Haunted House stars (beep)ing Marlon Wayans, Cedric The Entertainer, and a few others with RAZZIE histories!
 
Alas, I think Mark Wahlberg will probably need to star in another RAZZberry of a film to be a shoo-in for Worst Actor. I doubt this alone will seal the deal.
 
In 5 days, I'll have my eye on the reviews for Movie 43. If that gets panned by critics, it's gonna be a shoo-in for Worst Ensemble Cast!

Is it just me, or do others keep mistaking Russell Crowe for Kyle Chandler on the promos and pictures for this?

R.T. (25%): "The thinly sketched, formulaic script offers meager rewards for all but the least demanding noir aficionados".

Also, will any of the member started forums be upgraded?  


RESPONSE from Head RAZZberry: I already addressed the question about "up-grading" Member-Started Forums to "Official Forum" status -- the simply answer is "no." They will, of course, continue to be linked in GOLD/BOLD font from our http://www.razzies.com/forum/the-2013-list-jan1-thru-jan-18_topic6065.html -
And, to answer a question from another post -- Yes, A HAUNTED HOUSE and TEXAS CHAINSAW 3-D do (at this extremely early point in the year) look like "serious contenders" for RAZZIE® consideration...

Also, Headrazz, you forgot to mention that Battlefield Earth Razzie "winner" Barry Pepper has a small role in this.

...and Worst Supporting Actress for Kate Winslet?

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

Though I do agree with Head Razz on not ignoring the film, it still would be difficult for voting members to remember the movie by the time Ballots are sent out. I kind of feel the same way about Hansel and Gretel Witch Hunters. Still, I do think "Broken City" deserves at least two nominations. Worst Supporting Actor (Russell Crowe) and Worst Actor (Mark Wahlberg). We know both actors can do SO much better.

Just saw this. It was incredibly boring. None of the actors cared about it, especially Catherine Zeta-Jones. The only Razzie nominations I see this getting are Worst Actor for Mark Wahlberg (also for 2 Guns and maybe Pain And Gain) and Worst Supporting Actress for Zeta-Jones. Grade: C

oiram, I know 2 Guns isn't out yet. I added it because the trailer didn't look very promising.

Vits, I added my grade.

I just saw it. I don't think it should be nominated for anything.

I thought it was decent. If I had seen it when it came out, I would've told people "Go ahead and see it. There are worse ways to spend 100 minutes. Specially with all the January crap".
