Oh right, that would explain why everyone then complained about it for two years until Michael The Hack Bay and Shia LaButtHole finally admitted that is was a bad movie after all. People like looking at pretty colors and explosions, usually while their brains are turned off. Once their brains were back on, they realized what a piece of s*** this movie was!

But a lot people liked this movie! Wink   


RESPONSE from Head RAZZberry: It made a lot of money, yes. But that's not the same as claiming "a lot of people liked" it. When it "won" several of our top dis-honors, I found it significant that almost no one leapt to its defense. And, years later when another sequel was about to be released, both the film's lead actor and its director did interviews in which they "admitted" they knew this film was not up to par...

Transformers are my most favorite movies, and I really love the costumes. I am planning to purchase these costumes for my 17-year-old son.

That's nice ... however, note where he places the blame. It's not "The movie sucks because I'm a hack and I make the same movie over and over again," it's "Oh, I'm still talented ... it was all the Writers' Strike's fault!" Typical Hollywood!

At last! Michael Bay admits his movie was bad (although I don't like his reasoning):

Maybe this means Megan Fox will return for the 4th movie. What?Oh, come on! Don't act like there won't be another!

"Transformers 2" could have filled the entire Worst Screen Couple category all by itself. The Ghetto Bots, Devastator's wrecking balls, etc. and any of those combinations would have easily won if on the ballot. But like Bullock herself said, "All About Steve" was about a socially retarded woman stalking a man who didn't love her across America. Yeah, that doesn't make for a great screen couple, hence why it won. But with Worst Ensemble being under heavy consideration, Worst Couple might be a thing of the past, and rightfully so. Movies aren't sold by one or two known stars in the movie, they are sold by 5, 10, 15, or even 20 stars int he movie.

I thought the nod should have gone to the "ghetto-bot" Twins, who were about the dumbest movie characters of all time (next to Jar Jar) and were easily the worst thing about the movie, which says something. 

I guarantee if the Twins were on the ballot, Bradley Cooper and Sandra Bullock wouldn't have stood a chance!

Yeah because Bay escaped Razzie wrath with Pearl Harbor, i think this was the Razzies' time to get revenge on him. For the most part, Bay's my favorite "guilty pleasure" director, but i was more than happy to see him get the win, mainly because i actually enjoyed the first Transformers and thought #2 was the biggest disappointment of last year.

I didn't say I didn't like that it won. Yes,I saw at least 10 worse movies in '09, but this is still a bad movie. And,once again, if there's a movie Michael Bay deserves a Razzie for, it is this one.

Okay, the fact this movie won Worst Picture is being debated again, so here I go:  

1. Screenplay: If you can spot the plot holes, it's a flawed script. Plus, like I said before, this script seemed like it was thrown together overnight by a bunch of 12 year olds. It was rushed into production due to the writers' strike, and it painfully shows. It rightfully deserved Worst Screenplay.  

2. As for the other Worst Pictures. "All About Steve", as cvcjr points out, Sandra Bullock gets full blame for this one. It was indeed unfunny and she should have known better, but even though it was bad, it wasn't as soulless as "Transformers 2" was. "Old Dogs", the only reason why this movie got a nod was because of John "Battlefield Earth" Travolting and Robin "Losing My Funniness" Williams, not enough of an excuse to win. "Land Of The Lost", Will Ferrell being annoying, yes, a bad movie, however, it bombed at the box office while "Transformers 2" made nearly $1 billion! And lastly "GI Joe", the only other movie worthy besides "Transformers 2". Bad acting, stupid story, 32 bit video game like CGI. But "Transformers 2" was made by Michael Bay, who was long overdue for a Razzing, and got what was coming to him. 

So out of the five choices, "Transformers 2" was the most deserving to win due to all it's HUGE problems with the script, the fact it made so much money, and because it's was Bay's turn to be Razzed. That is why it won, whether you like it or not.

Do I agree with the Razzie noms this got? 

"Actress": Not sure.In the first movie, Megan Fox didn't do much. But nobody could with an under-developed character like that. This time,she got used more than she should've. With the exception of one particular scene, I didn't see much acting.  

"Supporting Actress": Agreed. At one point Julie White's character gets high, but I see her acting the same way that in other scenes. 

"Couple": Disagree.Fox and Shia LeBeouf do have chemistry, and so does he with BUMBLEBEE.

"Screenplay": Disagree. There were like 2 boring scenes, and I felt that the plot was being made-up as they went along. Also I saw the plot holes. But even though it's a bad script, it's not awful. 

*"Director": Agreed! Many decades ago, having great effects was something so cool. Fans don't understand why that doesn't continue. If I had to explain to them, I'd use this as an example. Michael Bay provides us so much movement and noise that we can't understand what's going on. 

**"Remake Or Sequel": Agreed. The first movie got lucky,and this one not only takes advantage of that, while giving the first one a bad name. 

"Picture": Disagreed. Having all those things in mind,the movie is bad. But it's not the worst of the year.

I'd give it 4/10. 


*Deserved to win.
**Should've won.

Oh yes, that is a whole other level of mindless, devoted loyality right there.

Yeah, I mean we're what 650 to 700 people? The Oscars are 6,000 strong. We're just a humble little group of movie lovers who like to poke fun at Hollywood's short-comings.
