RESPONSE from Head RAZZberry: I assume you mean the LINK to the article about the director of this film trashing the final cut and Fox for "ruining" it??  Here is the LINK once more --- It does make an interesting read...

If Hollywood understood irony, I'd have to say that the director of a derivitive, formulaic piece of clunk like "Babble on A.D.D." complaining that studio hacks "ruined the vision" of his film would be the ultimate example of it.

But as we all know, Hollywood doesn't understand irony...

or humor...

or genuine emotion...

or recognizable human characters...

or...

Out of morbid curiosity, I decided to check out to the current total grosses on this film: On a budget of about $70 million, B.O. MoJo sez it has not even taken in $22 million (LINK). That makes this an even bigger Spectacular Failure than "Love Guru" (LINK) and almost as big a bomb as "Meet Dave" (LINK) -- though this year's Loss Leader has GOTTA be "Speed Racer" ($120 million budget/$44 million gross - LINK)...

"Speed Racer" is hands-down the biggest flop of the year. "Love Guru" only made back half of what it cost to make, and "Meet Dave" was lucky it even broke into the double digits...

I'm quite sure that 22/70 is slightly lower than 44/120, and that would actually make Babylon A.D. the biggest flop of the year (Speed Racer is doing better with the critics and users on Rotten Tomatoes as well).

But in terms of money, "Speed Racer" had the bigger budget (well into the hundred millions) while "Babylon" was in the 70 millions. In term of critics (at least those at RT), "Babylon" was the bigger bomb -- But in box-office-gross-versusd-budget, "Speed Racer" was the bigger loser...

Come to think of it, Saturnwatcher's name implies a connection to the Saturn Awards, which recognize the best in science-fiction.  This film has a one-in-a-million chance of getting nominated for one of those, but I doubt it will.

Yeah, I think of the Saturn Sci-Fi Awards whenever I see saturnwatcher's name as well. This movie might get a nod or twoo from them, but I'm more than pretty sure "The Dark Knight" will take home everything at that award show. Much like I hope "Disaster Movie" will sweep at OUR award show.

Graaah! My mother once wanted to see Vin Diesel live, but she's long since forgotten him, it seems. Isn't it ironic that both a movie with A. D. in its title got its own RAZZIE forum just five months after a movie with B. C.?
