Well, Worst Direct To DVD Movie would be a good category, considering the large amount of straight to DVD sequels that are being made these days. Only problem is that voters would have to go and rent or stream these movies as well in order to know about them better.

Hi, new here and kind of saying hello.

I was wondering if you ever thought of starting a Worst Movie Not Showing in a Theatre Near You-category. This category would "honour" the worst films released through another medium than the cinema (tv films, straight-to-dvd/blu-ray films and films released directly on the interenet)? Please respond to this question (and give me feedback on the idea if you don't like it)

I was also wondering if i could register as a voter if i am not a U.S.-resident (or if it is U.S. only)?  


RESPONSE from Head RAZZberry: First off, a Berry Warm WELCOME to our Forum. 

The idea of a "Not Showing" RAZZIE category is an interesting one, but among the problems would be keeping track of all the dreck that appears on Direct-to-Video, as well as ensuring that the titles were readily available to our Voting Members. 

On the question of whether non-US residents can be Voting Members, the answer is an emphatic YES -- We currently have Voting Members in nearly two dozen foreign territories -- many of whom cast their ballots via the Net. Here's the LINK to sign up, if you're interested...

Yeah, but sadly, most horror movies these days use the "slasher formula," and the"rom/com formula" needs to change, too,  because it has gotten equally stale.

You're describing slasher films. Horror movies can be different. Romantic comedies may change their plots, but the formula is always the same...

Can anyone seriously claim to tell one horror movie from another these days? They are all the same. Take a group of good-looking teenagers, add one serial killer in a mask and a weapon of choice,...killer then offs the teens one-by-one, until the last one or two teens stops him,...and end with a cliffhanger where the killer may or may not come back to life...repeat in sequel. 

Same formula Hollywood has used for the past 40 years!

I'm serious, man. At least with past categories like "Worst Excuse for a Horror Movie" or "Worst Excuse for a Family Movie," you could tell the nominees apart.

Then perhaps I should've voted for "Worst Eye-Gouging Use of 3D".

The thing is, if we give rom-coms their own Razzie category, we might as well just call it "Worst Katherine Heigl Movie," since she stars in practically every one of them!

I've thought about it, and I don't there should be "Worst Excuse for a Rom/Com" category. 5 movies will be nominated,right? Usually people complain when one they wanted didn't make the final cut. This time, when HeadRAZZ has to explain why one didn't make it, he won't be able to do so. Since all rom-coms are hated for the exact same reasons, there would be no way to choose, since they're all equally bad.

Well, there was the entire year of 2003, in which Ben Affeck became incapable of appearing in a good movie, so he win Worst Actor not just for "Gigli", but every other movie he was in that year ("Paycheck", "Daredevil", etc.). In that case, yes, the actor should get nods for his entire body of work for that year. But again, if it's not in theaters, it's not going to be on Razzie ballot, hence why Hopkins would only get a nod for "Wolfman" and not this other movie you're sugguesting.

Joint nominations for two similar movies is where I draw the line. I've asked plenty of times how they came up with the penalty for Worst Screen Couple, and asked if it had something to do with bad items showing up in pairs on screen back in the former half of 199X... and I never got an answer.  

RESPONSE from Head RAZZberry: I assume your reference to "joint nominations for two similar movies" is regarding the MEET THE SPARTANS / EPIC MOVIE combo from our 29th year?? If you saw both movies (and I had the misfortune of doing so) you'd understand the argument that they were two very similar versions of the same, lame concept. And jointly nominating them seemed a way to immediately point at their they were...turds of a feather. 

As for the "inspiration" for Worst Screen Couple, it was taken in part from similar categories in the MTV Movie Awards and the fact that, in 1994, there were a plethora of really awful "screen couples" to choose from.

Yeah, but giving 5 actors or 5 actresses a collective nod as Worst Actor or Actress makes even less sense than calling an entire cast the Worst Couple...

Those were just examples.And I said those could be nominated in individual acting categories.
