When all those people in Farenheit 9/11 got those awards, who is that supposed to insult? Michael Moore, who made the movie, or the "actors" themselves? And to have 3 of the acting roles go to people in a documentary really defeats the purpose of the awards. It just comes off as kind of stupid.

*puts on his Blockbuster polo shirt and khaki pants*

Maria Full of Grace, The Motorcycle Diaries, Garden State and Mean Creek are all out on DVD, and Sideways comes out in April.

And you can get 'em at your neighborhood Blockbuster store! *thumbs up, cheap pop* Especially Garden State, 'cuz my store, at least, has 70 or so copies that are just standing there on the shelf. The Motorcycle Diaries will probably be slightly hard to find, although of course availability may differ in your area. Be sure to call ahead.

Could it also be the Razzies' way of thumbing their collective noses at the Bush administration? I haven't seen the documentary yet, but I'm interested in it now.

Also, I don't think that SCOOBY-DOO 2 should have gotten the WORST SEQUEL nod. It wasn't great....but it was passable entertainment that had some really funny moments.



I've seen the following movies so far this year:

Yeah, that's what I meant to say. The Razzies are supposed to be for giving it to those actors & directors who do bad work. They're not supposed to be all politicized, IMO.

Exactly.I lost a lot of respect for the Razzies with this.

While I liked Sideways, the lack of love for Eternal Sunshine bothers me to no end.

You had a lot of respect beforehand for what's essentially some joke awards? It's not a good sign if you're taking the Razzies seriously.

I think what Grimis means is you could always count on the Razzies to barbecue those who put such stinkers out during the year that they deserve said barbecueing...regardless of race, creed, color or political affiliation.

Now it's just another hackneyed device for the left to say "We still hate you, W." Really kills the fun buzz.

By the way, when did Uwe Boll's masterpiece, "House of the Dead" come out? If it was eligble for this list and didn't win, that's a major travesty.

Politics shouldn't have anything to do with it. Alexander richly deserved those awards. What kind of world do we live in when we can't count on the RAZZIES to get it right anymore?

Dear god, they've violated the sanctity of the Golden Raspberry Awards! Is nothing sacred?

Oh, and Halle Berry rules:

Berry was named worst actress of 2004 by the Golden Raspberry Award Foundation for her performance in "Catwoman" and she showed up to accept her "Razzie" carrying the Oscar she won in 2002 for "Monster's Ball."

"They can't take this away from me, it's got my name on it!" she quipped. A raucous crowd cheered her on as she gave a stirring recreation of her Academy Award acceptance speech, including tears.

She thanked everyone involved in "Catwoman," a film she said took her from the top of her profession to the bottom.

"I want to thank Warner Brothers for casting me in this piece of shit," she said as she dragged her agent on stage and warned him "next time read the script first."

Sometimes you star in a bad movie. Everyone in Hollywood does it, not many are willing to admit to it. At least she has a sense of humor about the whole thing.

I'm a little more Left than the average person, but the politics really did take away from things this year. Where's the well-deserved Razzie for WHITE CHICKS?

Can't wait for next year to see "Alone in the Dark" and "Son of the Mask" make a clean sweep. And that's saying a lot considering that there could be a lot more crap on the way in the next 9 months.

White Chicks was actually kind of funny. Not worth paying to see, but it still got laughs out of the audience.

I dunno - "Alone In The Dark" is the kind of bad movie no one will even remember by the end of the year, and while "Son of the Mask" looks like a lock for Worst Remake/Sequel already, did you see the commercial for the Ashton Kutcher/Bernie Mac remake of "Guess Who's Coming To Dinner"?

And this looks like it has all of the makings of a Razzie quality flick.

- Bad Remake (check)
- Over the top slapstick (check)
- Bad Remake of a landmark movie (check)
- Two horrible actors (check)
- Hype Machine in Overdrive (check)

They might as well hand it over now...

Whoa whoa WHOA!! TWO horrible actors? I'll give you Kutcher, he is horrible. But Bernie Mac? No way. bernie is no A list actor, but he gets the job done and has great timing. And his show rocks.



I think you're an asshole. No, no, let me correct that, an immature asshole. Which is fine, except that you're marrying my daughter and I'm afraid that my grandchildren are gonna be little assholes.
