Lady Gaga is great, but that kind of title is reserved for peoplpe with long careers. At least longer than 5 years. Besides, if that title could be passed on, Michael Jackson wouldn't be called The King of Pop anymore. Same with Elvis (The King of Rock & Roll), James Brown (The Godfather of Soul), etc.

I believe she's lost the title of "Queen of Pop" -- to Lady Gaga!

She's the Queen of Pop. And she has been for a long, long time. So, I guess, she can do whatever she wants to.

How did Madonna be in so many films? I've seen her in "Swept Away" and in this other film "A League of Their Own" (which was an okay film I guess). How was she even cast in films like that? Was she just that powerful back then?

You do realize sarcasm is harder to convey in written form, right?

Elizabeth Hartman and Judith Barsi are more talented and beautiful than Scarlett Johansson and Chloe Grace Moretz. Fact.

Doesn't it become boring after a while if the SAME person/people just kept on winning/getting nominated? Some times, new blood doesn't hurt.

I pretty much gave up on Rob Zombie after I saw Halloween 2. Though I did sort of like the very first Halloween remake, it could never live up to the original one made in 1978. H2 however, seemed to be very convoluted and stupid. Unnecessary Gore, ridiculous dialogue, sloppy direction and random screaming. Besides those two, I didn't see any of his other work. More gore? no thank you.

Side note here: How did Madonna be in so many films? I've seen her in "Swept Away" and in this other film "A League of their own" (which was an okay film I guess). How was she even cast in films like that? Was she just that powerful back then?

RESPONSE from Head RAZZberry: Just as the rest of the world cheered -- and most of us mourned -- when Madonna announced a few years ago that she was "giving up on her lifelong dream" of being a movie star, we should not be too quick to yell "Hooray" if Rob Zombie actually is retiring from the directing. Though many another equally un-gifted hack stands ready to step into his clown-sized shoes, the end of any career rich in RAZZIE® fodder should be a time of sorrow for us. It means we'll have "discover" new bad movie-makers, instead of enjoying the luxury of knowing that almost anything with so-and-so's name on it is a likely contender...

This just in, Rob Zombie is no longer making films. Hooray for us, I say.

I think the RT approval rating is a bit high. I was expecting it to be under 40%.

This particular discussion strikes me as being some kind of "place holder," vamping until the new Michael Bay movie comes out next week -- That has the potential (like almost everything Bay has made) to REALLY suck!

In terms of this film's potential "quality," I think the most significant fact mentioned by HeadRazz in his post atop this page is that it was financed by a direct-to-video company. Finally, Rob Zombie's career is about to go in the toilet -- where I've always thought it belonged.

Hate to say it, but this looks like something I wouldn't even bother seeing as a Razzie member -- Just utterly forgettable.

R.T. (45%): "It has lots of atmospheric portent, but it's unfortunately short on scares."
