I'd to see the following bad Sequels/Remakes added: American Reunion (sequel), Dark Shadows (remake), Expendables 2 (sequel), Ice Age 4 (sequel), Paranormal Activity 4 (sequel), Sparkle (remake).
FYC: WORST Acting Performances of 2014 include: Johnny Depp (X2), Kevin Costner (X3), Aaron Taylor-Johnson, Seth MacFartlane, Sandler (X3), Rob Reiner, Dan Aykroyd (X2), and YES Diane Keaton!

Originally, I suggested THE 3 STOOGES, but I've changed my mind. It's a very passable movie.

Once again I'll rank my picks:

11) TOTAL RECALL.
10) JOURNEY 2 THE MYSTERIOUS ISLAND.
9) DARK SHADOWS.
8) ICE AGE 4.
7) RESIDENT EVIL 5.
6) TAKEN 2.
5) WRATH OF THE TITANS.
4) THE RAVEN (rips-off the works of Edgar Allan Poe).
3) UNDERWORLD 4.
2) BATTLESHIP (rips-off TRANSFORMERS and the board game).
1) GHOST RIDER 2: SPIRIT OF VENGEANCE.

1-7 I also want for Worst Picture.

Oiram: Because of how many found footage movies and exorcism movies have been this year, I don't think THE DEVIL INSIDE can be considered a direct rip-off of THE LAST EXORCISM. The same with vigilante movies (GONE; JACK REACHER), so SEEKING JUSTICE can't be a direct rip-off of DEATH WISH..

Kinda disappointed you didn't call Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter a rip-off of Lincoln, though I can live with that.
 
What really shocks me though is that you do not have Expendables 2 of all films up there -- really baffling. Why isn't it up there?   

Well, anyways, my picks based on these results are:
Red Dawn
Taken 2
Total Recall
The Twilight Saga: Breakin Dawn - Part 2
Wrath of the Titans  


RESPONSE from Head RAZZberry: EXPENDABLES, TOO is not listed because it not only ended up w/a "fresh" rating of 66% Positive at Rotten Tomatoes (LINK) but it also was a big money-maker -- made for about $100 million, it grossed just over $300 million worldwide (MoJo LINK). That's two of the three "basic yardsticks" for determining RAZZIE® Contenders on which this sequel clearly missed qualifying (the 3rd "yardstick" is RAZZIE® Pedigree, which is likely to land E2 a listing or two on our Nominating Ballot for Worst Supporting Actor). 

Also, the first EXPENDABLES was listed all over our Nominating Ballot a year or two ago, and wound up with only one nomination -- And this sequel was not directed by Stallone. So, until we finally get around to deciding his "career" is done  (and eventually/inevitably vote him a Worst Career Achievement award) it looks like most of our members want us to lay off Duh Sly-ster for now...

Dude, I just got here. Wait till my actual post before you reply to me. 


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

The THE EXPENDABLES PART 2 got better reviews than the first one.

You've been posting your lists so often that I have practically memorized them, so I knew you were going to post those movies.

My 5 picks: 

Atlas Shrugged Part II 
 
Ghost Rider 2 
 
Madea's Witness Protection 
 
Resident Evil 5 
 
Wrath of the Titans 
 
I feel like I should put some crappy remakes in here, but the worst remake I saw this year (Three Stooges) is only the 9th worst of the choices HeadRazz listed.

Far and away, #1 has to be SUPERTRAIN THE MOTION PICTURE, PART 2, AKA, ATLAS SHAGGED PART 2!

Right next to it has to be RED DAWN!
Add in GHOST RIDER: SPIRIT OF VENGEANCE
The tacky TOTAL WEE-WEE CALL
And bringing up the rear is DARK SHADOWS!


2014 Pic: LEFT BEHIND Actor: NICHOLAS CAGE Director: VIC ARMSTRONG, DAMN THIS SHOULD WIN EVERY RAZZIE!!!!!

Could One for the Money have been a possibility, since it was done once before (2002 TV movie)? 


RESPONSE from Head RAZZberry: I was actually not aware that ONE FOR THE MONEY was indeed a remake of a 2002 TV movie of the same name, but Remake/Rip-Off/Sequel was already an over-crowded category. And, yes, your info would technically have qualified it for consideration. For those curious (or dubious) about AndP's note about this film, here's an IMDb LINK to confirm it.
