THIS ONE KINDA/SORTA SNUCK UP on US, LIKE SWAMP GAS from a HUMAN SOURCE. 

WE LIKE to THINK of IT AS a DEEP-FRIED TURKEY, SPECIALLY DELIVERED for http://razzies.com/join.asp - to ENJOY on THANKSGIVING WEEKEND... 

IT's BASED on NOVEL THAT OUR AWL-TIME RAZZIE CHAM-PEEN SYLVESTER STALLONE ADAPTED into WHAT HE CALLS a "SCREENPLAY" YEARS AGO (AND, YEARS AGO, HE HAD HIMSELF in MIND AS the LEAD). SLY ALSO PRODUCED IT...


IT's CAST INCLUDES MULTIPLE PAST RAZZIE® NOMINEES: JAMES FRANCO (WHOSE PERFORMANCE and CHARACTER NAME -- "GATOR" BODINE -- ARE IRRESISTIBLY RAZZ-ABLE) WINONA RYDER (WHO SEEMS EXTREMELY OUT-of-PLACE HERE, BUT HAS ALSO BEEN EXTREMELY OUT-of-WORK for YEARS) and KATE BOSWORTH (WHO's PLAYING a TRAILER-TRASH/OUT-for-REVENGE BACKWOODS MAMA...and LOOKS LIKE SHE's BEEN BEATEN with THAT PROVERBIAL 'UGLY STICK").

ITS DIRECTOR's CREDITS ARE MOSTLY in TV...

...and B.O. MoJo SEZ THEY WASTED $70 MILLION(!) to MAKE IT. 

BUT ALL YOU GOTTA DO IZ HIT the YOUTUBE LINK ABOVE to WATCH the TRAILER, and WE FIGGER YEWL GUESS WHY IT's GOT ITs OWN FORUM HERE.    


JESS FER FUN, HERE's the http://www.razzies.com/forum/foto-funny-for-homefrOnt_topic6356.html - to the FOTO FUNNY on THIS...

...and HERE's the http://www.razzies.com/forum/homefront_forum709.html - to OUR FORUM INFO PAGE ON IT -- 

YEE-HAW!!

Statham is not getting a Worst Actor nom.

If he couldn't even make the ballots for an UWE BOLL FILM, I doubt he'll get one this year.

James Franco is the more likely target.

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

I've never even heard of this film. And after reading who worked in it, I feel I should have.

HeadRAZZ already mentioned some of the actors, but not their other movies this year. Kate Bosworth was also in MOVIE 43 and BIG SUR, and Rachelle Lefevre was also in WHITE HOUSE DOWN. There's also Winona Ryder, who recently teased about a BETTLEJUICE sequel. Warning: she did the same thing about a HEATHERS sequel a few years ago, and nothing happened. I think she's just after publicity.

HeadRAZZ mentioned that Sylverster Stallone wrote the script, and also produced the film. And Gary Fleder has directed 6 movies, out of which 4 are bad. But his 2 good ones were also his latest.

That's odd logic! Besides, Statham was also in PARKER this year. Yes, I know he was in like 4 movies in '08, but still.

Why? It's not like being in OZ, SPRING BREAKERS and THIS IS THE END should give him more Razzie chances.

He was also in a movie called Hummingbird, or "Redemption" in the US, this year.

It's started off at 40%. There's still time to make another forum, right? Because this week, there's also OLDBOY (a remake?! of an Asian movie?!) and BLACK NATIVITY (I don't know if it counts as a Tyler Perry rip-off (because of the all-black cast), but it could earn Forest Whitaker a Razzie a day before he wins an Oscar for THE BUTLER).

To Vits: I wouldn't count in Black Nativity yet because right now it's 4 for 7 (A C+), and Oldboy [remake] still hasn't been pre-screened for critics. Give it another day or so until we decide this.

To all else: So the pattern that Homefront has gotten in its first 7 reviews were 2 Rotten, then 1 Fresh, then 1 Rotten, then 1 Fresh, then 2 Rotten. Basically, it's 2 for 7, or 29%. That's a solid D. I'm predicting, based on the first 3 reviews on Metacritic being below 40%, that this'll stay in the D range (20-39%) in the review scores.
 
If we must, bundle this with Parker because that shares Jason Statham with this, but I can only really see this warranting 2, maybe 3 nominations, for our awards. But not 4. More importantly, please do NOT bundle this with Hummingbird/Redemption, which got a middling C!

UPDATE from Head RAZZberry: Just for giggles, here's the "Red Band Trailer" for HOMEFRONT, featuring about 4 dozen F Bombs, lotsa violence, way too many explosions...and berry little story. Kinda like the movie itself!
