Final Destination 5 was rotten, but it served it's purpose. Plenty of gore. Probably one of the worst scripts ever written, same for direction. But the violence was hilarious in its implausibility. It was bad, but it accomplished it's mission. As a film it was dreadful, but as a gore-filled popcorn film for die hard fans, it did its thing, with unintentional comedy to boot. 
Of course the 3D was worthless, just like every other 3D film. Def consider it for Worst Eye Gouging Misuse of 3D if they're doing that category this year.
Worst Picture, Director & Script: Twilight
Actor: Nick Cage
Actress: K Stew
S. Actor: Ken Jeong
S. Actress: David Spade
Couple: Sandler and Sandler
Sequel: Hangover II

Er, no. The story of A Star is Born is usually Man is successful, Man meets Unknown Woman, Man lets Unknown Woman play lead along with him, Woman becomes popular, Man starts to lose popularity, mainly do to alcohol, Woman tries to save him, Man might die or might not die, Woman either sad or happy respectively.
 
Bucky Larson does not have that plotline. If anything, The Artist rips-off A Star is Born.  


RESPONSE from Head RAZZberry: So you're choosing to ignore the obvious -- that the title BUCKY LARSON: BORN TO BE A STAR is clearly ripped-off from A STAR IS BORN -- and lecture us all on your knowledge of old movie plotz?? Among the elements that BUCKY does take from all previous versions of BORN is the core idea of a small-town innocent heading  out to become a STAR. As far as I'm concerned, the title and that plot device are enough to argue that LARSON is larcenously playing off of STAR IS BORN, and therefor does qualify as either a Remake or a Rip-Off...

RESPONSE from Head RAZZberry: While there may be elements of BOOGIE NIGHTS in it, the complete title (BUCKY LARSON: BORN TO BE A STAR) makes it clear the main "inspiration" for this hideous film is A STAR IS BORN...




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'm really, really missing Red Riding Hood on this list. HeadRazz, I know you've already made a statement about that, but I was reading through the reviews of RRH, 90% compare it to the first Twilight. RRH takes so many elements from that movie that it should be considered a "rip-off", and it's a remake of the Grimm's story anyways.
Apart from that this was a sh*t movie, and I don't want it to get away with no punishment, considering with just 11% on RT, it could be a winner in this category.

I want to add another runner-up: HAPPY FEET 2. While it wasn't the worst of the year, it was bad enough to ruin the first one.

I know there are a lot of body swap movies, but is THE CHANGE UP a direct rip-off of one in particular? If so, it's another runner-up for this category.

Just watched Jack and Jill and it's only now that I've regained the strength to make comments on this film (the film was torture to watch). It's painfully unfunny from beginning to end. 

This pile of s**! deserves to get nominated for Worst Picture. Here are the reasons: 

1) Adam Sandler gives his usual bad (and unfunny) performance as the male lead. He deserves a nomination for Worst Actor. 

2) As the "female" lead Sandler also deserves a Worst Actress nomination. His over-acting playing Jill contributed to the torture.
 
3) Nick Swardson is worthy for Worst Supporting Actor nomination for his dull performance in this movie as well as for his irritating acting in 'Just Go With It'. 

4) David Spade (as Monica) deserves Worst Supporting Actress nomination for his appalling attempt as Jill's equally unpleasant enemy. A Worst Supporting Actress nomination should also go to Katie Holmes. Holmes's acting 'ability' makes no contribution to entertainment. 

5) Jack and Jill seems to rip-off other (and better) movies where the male lead is disguised as a woman. So a Worst Prequel, Remake, Rip-off or Sequel for this trash makes sense. 

6) Dennis Dugan deserves a Worst Director nod for this $((! as well as for 'Just Go With It'. 

7) Adam Sandler and Steve Koren should also be acknowledged in the Worst Screenplay category. The script was not funny and the biggest contribution to the torture I endured. 

8) A Worst Screen Couple/Ensemble should go to to Adam Sandler for playing a pair of unlikable twins. 
Directed by Michael Bay and M. Night Shyamalan comes...a movie guaranteed to win Razzies!

Please, there are just some movies that are beneath even RAZZIE consideration -- and I consider Human Centipede II as one of those!

RESPONSE from Head RAZZberry: Our next poll will cover 2011 choices for Worst Director, and will be up-and-running by this coming Friday, December 2...

Really? Well you better not forget Catherine Hardwicke for Red Riding Hood. We need atleast one female director in the running.
