MEMBER-STARTED FORUM DISCUSSION  

THROUGHOUT 2011 AND 2012, WE HAVEN'T HAD MANY "SPOOF" MOVIES TO DEAL WITH. BUT 2012 HAD SOME TRENDS THAT WERE STILL PRETTY BAD: LOUSY "FOUND FOOTAGE" AND SHAKY CAMERA FILMS

A HAUNTED HOUSE IS THE LATEST "SPOOF" MOVIE FROM MARLON WAYANS, OF DANCE FLICK FAME (OR IS THAT INFAMY?). WORSE YET, IT ALSO STARS NICK SWARDSON, THE ILL-FATED STAR, OR RATHER ZTAR (A STAR THAT SHINES LIKE AN OIL SLICK) OF BUCKY LARSON: BORN TO BE A STAR. A LOT OF US THOUGHT THIS MIGHT STINK LIKE A ROTTING CORPSE UPON RELEASE, AND ALL OF THE FIRST DOZEN REVIEWS ON ROTTEN TOMATOES PANNED IT. THE SMELL OF DECAY WILL HANG HEAVY OVER ITS MAKERS FOR A WHILE, BUT EVEN I CAN'T DECIDE IF IT'S LIKELY TO LAST UNTIL OUR WORST OF 2013 NOMINATIONS COME OUT A YEAR FROM NOW.
 
BUT DON'T LEAVE ME ALONE IN THIS HAUNTED HOUSE with ALL THOSE EVIL SPIRITS! NOW IT'S YOUR TURN! CONDUCT YOUR SHAKY-CAM SPOOF/SEANCE BELOW!
 

SWARDSON: You never told me this house was HAINTED!!!
WAYANS: I didn't know! I DIDN'T KNOWOWOWOW!!!

Beat me to a forum for this. Oh well, I should probably get a headstart on the Hansel & Gretel and Last Stand forums.

To oiram: I don't think anyone had intended on that since the reviews came in around 6/20 approval rating.
 
To [s]jesse685[/s] everyone who's considering starting an unofficial forum: One request before you do: I want you to type in VERDANA FONT, IN BOLD, ALL CAPS, SIZE 4 throughout your description of those films to make it look more like a HeadRAZZ Official Contender forum. I do so to try and match HeadRAZZ' aesthetics. Also, dibs on Movie 43 if it gets panned by critics!
 
To HeadRAZZBerry: If you're reading this, when do you think we can hand the reins for new contenders back to you? March at the latest, right?

The Wayans Brothers have a long, long history with the Razzies, whether it be nominations like with White Chicks or wins like with Little Man.  And let's not forget Marlon Wayans' association with the Scary Movie series, with Scary Movie 5 due to drop its droppings later this year.  The stars of TV's In Living Color seem to have faded into a dying gray as they have forgotten the first rule of comedy - make them laugh.
 
But let's not stop with Wayans or Nick Swardson of Adam Sandler infamy.  Many of the cast in this production have been associated with Wayans Brothers or Will Ferrel "bomb-edies".  By all means http://www.imdb.com/title/tt2243537/?ref_=fn_al_tt_1 - go to IMDb and look at the past movies each cast member has appeared in .  Be sure to look at the director/writers/producer - all past Wayans co-horts - or should I say "no-snorts", as in no snorts of laughter have been induced by these people in a long, long time.
 
Sadly, there will probably be a sequel.  http://www.boxofficemojo.com/movies/?id=hauntedhouse.htm - According to Box Office Mojo , A Haunted House had a production budget of $2.5 million, and just the domestic box office for Friday is estimated to be $6.7 million.  There's little incentive to be truly comic when you're laughing all the way to the bank.  But the puny budget aside, when compared to the $100 million mark for a box office hit, this movie is a box office sCensored. . . .
 
Speaking of which, we're still waiting for all the critics to flush their toilets, but the initial ratings for A Haunted House http://www.rottentomatoes.com/m/a_haunted_house/ - on Rotten Tomatoes and http://www.metacritic.com/movie/a-haunted-house - on Metacritic indicate the critics concur with our pick for Worst of the Weak.  I can't see those scores going up by the end of the weekend.
 
As for Gangster Squad, I'm not posting a forum, even if Sean Penn's rubber face seems a little off.  It looks like a popcorn flick, and its middling ratings deem its not all that great, but its not bad enough for us.
 
 
OH, NO!!!  WE'VE MADE ANOTHER BAD MOVIE!!!
 ARE WE POSSESSED BY THE DELUSION THAT 
THIS IS FUNNY!!!

A Haunted House earned over $18 million this weekend. Earth is clearly doomed!

I can't comment on that until I've seen the first HAUNTED HOUSE movie.

It'll stay at 10% on R.T.

Diego Muñoz (1/5): "It's closer to being an actual horror movie than a comedy. The fear it produces comes from the status of human kind, if someone finds this movie funny".

I just saw it. It currently ranks #64 (between BATTLESHIP and UNDERWORLD PART 3) in my all-time worst list (there's 72 titles so far).

For your consideration:
-Worst Actor for Marlon Wayans.
-Worst Actress for Essence Atkins.
-Worst Supp. Actor for Nick Swardson.
-Worst Screen Ensemble.
-Worst Director.
-Worst Screenplay.
-Worst Picture.

What about Worst Screen Couple? Marlon Wayans wrote a script to where both a woman AND a man wanted him, insinuating that he like the black Robert Pattinson or something.

But MALCOLM is always trying to get away from CHIP. If the movie was nominated for Worst Couple, it should be for Wayans and either Atkins, the ghost, or the ghost inside Atkins. That would make more sense because the ghost rapes MALCOLM.

Oh, I almost forgot about that one ghost part. I am going by the Razzie logic of even if it is one sided, it is still a couple.

You know, for someone who has the movie on his Worst ever list, you took time to remember the "character" (a term I use loosely) names.

Even though watching this movie was the longest 85 minutes of my life, I still paid attention. I didn't remember CHIP's name, though -- I had to look him up.

Three people signed on to A Haunted House 2:

Jaime Pressly, Gabriel Iglesias, and relative new comer Ashley Rickards.

I've never heard of Iglesias. The other 2 are talented, but if the sequel's script is on the same level as the 1st one's, then nobody can make it work.

Gabriel Iglesias started as a cast member of All That, and then he became a stand-up comedian. He only recently got into movies. He was in Magic Mike, did TWO voices for Planes, and now this.
