Rhianna was horrible in Battleship...don't quit your day job, but wait!
The Razzies are mean. They awarded the Razzie to elderly DeForest Kelley for Star Trek V. He was far from the worst thing in that abortion.
And yet they didn't nominate fat ass , un-funny, obnoxious, Seth Rogan.
Razzies are basically to punish singers or tabloid mainstays who try their hand at acting. So stupid.
I agree R4: Razzies avoid big targets, like John Carter, Total Recall, and This Means War that should be singled out; and pick on things like the silly Oogielove movie which was meant for toddlers.
I'm glad Kristen Stewart was recognized not only for Twilight but Snow White as well. That hang dog, mouth breathing cunt can't act.
"Battleship" should take it. I couldn't make it through more than 10 minutes of that turd. It's the earliest I've ever given up on any movie ever.
I also thoroughly approve of KStew's nom. As far as I can tell, she has no redeeming qualities, either personally or professionally.
I wish the Razzies aimed their targets at dreadful films that are massively overrated, like "Les Miserables" or "Beasts of the Southern Piece of Shit."
The Guilt Trip was OK. It wasn't the best thing ever but they just nominated Streisand there to be cunts...it was fine.
It was terrible, r9.
John Carter was a flop but it was a good movie.
I hope Tyler Perry wins (loses) both Actor and Actress.
Meaningless without Prometheus making an appearance.
I'll never understand why Meryl Streep wasn't nominated for "It's Complicated" or "Iron Lady."
If Tyler Perry wore his usual dress in Alex Cross it would have been more believable.
[quote]John Carter was a flop but it was a good movie.
That is completely insane. It was awful, like another bad Star Wars movie cast almost entirely with Jar Jar Binkses.
The eldergay Streisand fan gays are in a tizzy. Somebody run to Woolworth's and grab a case of smelling salts. All the old queens around here are about to pass out.
Why doesn't Comedy Central telecast the Razzies?
We know the nominees won't be showing up, but still clips would be hilarious.
Tosh should host.
These would be a lot more fun if instead of nominating universally regarded shit performances in universally regarded shit movies they would show some initiative and honor shit but highly rated performances in shit but highly rated movies.
I hope the Streep Troll doesn't see that!
"ACTOR: Nicolas Cage, Ghost Rider 2: Spirit of Vengeance & Seeking Justice/ Eddie Murphy, A Thousand Words/ Robert Pattinson, Twilight S.B.D. #2/ Tyler Perry (Not in Drag), Alex Cross & Tyler Perry’s Good Deeds/ Adam Sandler, That’s My Boy!"
Wow, the Best Actor category is an embarrassment of riches! All 5 of those guys deserve it. They should just make it a 5-way tie.
Barbra was a million times better in GT than Bette Midler was in that Parental Guidance shitfest.
John Carter wasn't that bad! Star Wars and most modern Science fiction serials owe a lot to the original story John Carter of Mars from 1902.
I agree that John Carter was really quite a good film. The film's promotion was sabotaged from within by the resentful new regime that took over after the film, and it's enormous budget were green lit.
Who is Adam Sandler sucking off that he still gets work?
WHO, I ask you???
As someone who is around jewish mothers non-stop, I can attest to the fact that Barbra was 100% believable in her part. Nominating her was just meanness.
John Carter was a landslide of crap CGI, bad storytelling, and lousy acting. It wasn't as bad as it COULD have been, but let's stop kidding ourselves about it actually being GOOD.
Not a single nomination for Tim Burton's Dark Shadows?!
John Carter was a pretty decent movie which was torn to shreds thanks to a Hollywood industry squabble (change of leadership, ego, financial budget, PR management, etc.). If may not be the best movie ever made, but it didn't deserve the dissing that it got.
The Twilight movies are my guilty pleasure (though I hate Kristen Stewart with a passion, too).
It does surprise me that no TV channel has picked up the rights to air the award ceremony. Would be hilarious to watch how they are dissing the movies.
Apart from Twilight the only movie I have watched so far is Tyler Perry's Madea in Wittness Protection or whatever the title and it was bad. Really deserves the Razzie nomination.
Streisand was good, in a very bland movie. Razzie's have to be mean.
Razzies are supposed to be blunt and mean.
Twilight are media hyped teen movies. And the rest of these movies mainly got greenlit or any media attention at all thanks to the movie's leading starpower (like Adam Sandler, Tyler Perry, or Babs Streisand).
they should try harder to nominate disappointing performances in goods films....Russell Crowe in Les Miz
Oogieloves might be for toddlers, but it can still be a particularly bad movie for toddlers, and apparently it is. It's IMDb rating is near the record low, and the movie also broke records in how badly it tanked opening weekend. I don't see anything wrong in singling it out, even toddlers deserve better.
If anyone deserves to get "razzed" it's Adam Sandler. He must be the laziest movie star in the world. He just keeps making the same movie over and over again.
I wish Rock of Ages had gotten more "love" from the voters. It was truly horrible.
I thought Streisand was okay in The Guilt Trip - they have a tendency to nominate anyone who appeared in a bad movie, even if his or her performance was several notches better than the material
[quote]Why doesn't Comedy Central telecast the Razzies?
I enjoy their roasts. But maybe if it was on Comedy Central it would become too cool and they would lose their sting?
I liked John Carter. It was fairly by-the-book sci-fi, but it's based on stories that pretty much defined sci-fi.
The script was a bit weak in spots, but definitely better than the Star Wars prequels, which felt like bad fan fiction.
How DARE they nominate Barbra Streisand? She was wonderful! Those Razzie people are IDIOTS!!
[quote]As someone who is around jewish mothers non-stop, I can attest to the fact that Barbra was 100% believable in her part. Nominating her was just meanness.
If Razzies are supposed to be blunt and mean, where is Seth Rogen's nomination? He's fat, he's ugly, he can't act, he's not funny, and he's terribly, terribly pleased with himself.
R19 is right, those Razzies would be a lot more fun.
"He's fat, he's ugly, he can't act, he's not funny, and he's terribly, terribly pleased with himself."
Gotta love the datalounge - being fat is just as bad as being untalented!
I don't get the hate for him, maybe you guys would love him if he was manorexic. He was very good in Take This Waltz and I doubt he's any more "pleased with himself" than any other actor.
The Razzies try hard to nominate A-listers known for quality work with a lot of Oscars or Hollywood prestige to their names.
Hence the nominations for Barbara Streisand, Bill Condon, Halle Barry, etc.
That's all about embarrassing the big-wigs who should know better (they'll have a heyday with MOVIE 43 and INAPPROPRIATE COMEDY).
But I still think the Razzies' top priority are the biggest and most obvious turds, not just the obscure or unqualified celebrities, which are a lesser priority.
Jeff Ross should host, r18.
JOHN CARTER wasn't bad, it was just badly marketed and released, so it wasn't seen.
It fails to elevate the genre, but its CGI might be the best I've ever seen.
PROMETHEUS deserves a Most Disappointing Prequel of All Time nomination alongside HANNIBAL and STARS WARS: THE PHANTOM MENACE. But PROMETHEUS wasn't terrible.
If the Razzies have a bias, it's against chick flicks.
The secret of Adam Sandler's success, r25, lies in his savvy for arranging multi-picture commitment deals with studios.
Every third or fourth Adam Sandler movie is a huge hit (note GROWN UPS), so studios agree to keep he and his production company working to get the few movies that stick.
"Who" you ask? The studio in question is Columbia Pictures/Sony.
Seth Rogen is hilarious, r39!
Just not in GUILT TRIP, which he didn't write.
I liked John Carter.
Kristen Stewart is the worst actress ever.
Watch just 30 seconds of this two minute clip that proves it.
Hands down worst actress ever.
Oh it's fun to see the eldergay meltdown over the Streisand nomination!
What's the point of nominating John Carter for a razzie? Fish in a barrel. The makers were obviously just going for a quick buck. Nobody expected Citizen Kane.
But Streisand has done some amazing work, so expectations are higher. That's why you nominate her...because she's slumming in a crap movie for an easy buck. And she should know better.
Kristen Stewart haters will enjoy Jenn Proske's impression of her in VAMPIRES SUCK, which is the only good thing about a Friedberg/Seltzer spoof movie EVER.
The Streisand nomination was uncalled for, unnecessary and mean-spirited. She was fine. You want bad performances? There are plenty of them from which to choose throughout the year. Barbra's wasn't one of them.
[quote]Eddie Murphy, A Thousand Words
What the hell was this? Did it go almost straight to video?
[quote]Gotta love the datalounge - being fat is just as bad as being untalented!
Are you kidding? It's much, much, MUCH worse.
John Carter was a very good movie that just didn't do well at the Box Office. It's very well done, visually stunning, and completely entertaining.
Stop ragging on John Carter. You're just piling on ignorant bashing. The movie deserved better than it got.
Promethus should have taken writing, directing, and acting razzies, imho.
I'd rather watch Battleship a dozen more times than watch Prometheus even once. I wish I could go back in time to un-see it.
Worst. Movie. Ever.
And R16 and R27 don't know what the fuck they're talking about. John Carter was better than most movies released this year. Not great, but not worth bashing either. I found it entertaining and well done.
John Carter was far from good, but not the disaster the PR machine would have you believe it was. Just mediocrity.
The real crime, as someone previously mentioned, is Dark Shadows getting a free pass. That movie was shit and Burton/Depp need to be punished for putting us through it.
R41 and R53...no kidding! Gay people here talk about fat people the way breeder male sports fans talk about gay people on their message boards. It's 24/7 hate. I used to wonder what that was about. But a friend explained that closet cases in high school often bully fat kids, especially girls, as a method of deflection. It seems like some people just don't grow out of it.
Dark Shadows was a total train wreck. Horrible, horrible movie in every conceivable way. Should have been the most nominated picture.
Among other things I think Prometheus was such a let down beacuse it had such an awesome trailer.
I dont think anyone is saying that John Carter was that GOOD just that there were so many other films that deserved a Razzie.
I don't get the rudeness to laugh at Barbra Streisand for getting a Razzie nomination...it was wrong and disrespectful.
I liked JOHN CARTER, too.
I assume everyone else can smell the sizzling brown fat emanating from R57, with her being hot under the collar and all.
I bought John Carter on Blu-ray not knowing what it was about, best purchase I ever made...loved it and Taylor Kitsch.
where's taken 2?!
"But a friend explained that closet cases in high school often bully fat kids, especially girls, as a method of deflection."
Well, if your FRIEND says it, it must be true.
And I guess straight people never picked on the fat kids, right? Because straight people are well known for how kind they are to all races, body types, etc. That's what makes straight people SO wonderful...
Director nominee John Putch is the son of beloved TV icon Jean Stapleton!
[quote]The eldergay Streisand fan gays are in a tizzy. Somebody run to Woolworth's and grab a case of smelling salts. All the old queens around here are about to pass out.
Whatev. The point for me is that there are dozens of worse female performances to choose from this year. She wasn't great in the movie but far from the worst.
Barbra was good in TGT. If the awards meant anything Russell Crowe would have gotten a nominaTion...
I remember the year Sandra Bollock won(she also won an Oscar that year) they also had her and Bradley Cooper for Worst Couple. Sandra showed up and told them they wasn't a couple in movie and wondered if they have even seen her movie...
I fucking hate Seth Rogan, I don't find him fuuny ot the least bit amusing. He's just fat and ugly.
John Carter wasn't fantastic, but it doesn't deserve the disdain it gets on here. Neither does Prometheus.
They're both a thousand times better than Battleship, Breaking Dawn 2, A Thousand Words, and That's My Boy.
Like R19 said, the focus should being on bad performances in/direction of either overpraised or big budget films. It's annoying to see the same films represented in most categories when you know the love could be shared around.
Also, like other posters here, the absence of Dark Shadows surprised me. I watched the trailer for Dark Shadows and vowed I'd never watch the film because it just looked so horrendous.
R67 I agree with you.
And why isn't emma stone on the list.?
[quote]The film's promotion was sabotaged from within by the resentful new regime that took over after the film, and it's enormous budget were green lit.
It was so dumb how they removed the word "...from Mars" in the title because that "Mars Needs Moms" animated film bombed. As if the planet mars was the problem. As if people have a Mars bias.
"John Carter of Mars" is just a much better, more interesting title. Just a name as a title makes me think it's a bad rom-com or something.
Where are the nominations for the cast of Dark Knight Rises, specifically Bale, Tom Hardy and Marion Cotillard?
Oh puleeeeeeeze, R74.
The Razzie guys can nominate Twilight to their heart's content...
Mention Batman (Thor, Green Lantern etc), and there would be fanboy fatwas issued...
God i fucking despise that comic book movies. The stans talk honest shit about Twilight but then how are they even ones to talk when they take nonsensical garbage like Iron Man on a serious level?

John Carter certainly doesn't deserve the disdain and bashing it gets, from anyone, anywhere.
Prometheus doesn't deserve your defense, or any defense, or any praise. It was the fucking worst movie ever. And if you disagree then you're just a clueless fuckwad with no taste or standards.
[quote]They're both a thousand times better than Battleship...
Battleship was infinitely more consistent and entertaining than Prometheus. Which admittedly isn't saying much. But it had better writing, acting, characterization, and a plot with less holes in it.
Marion Cotillard would kick the shit of you for saying that. Oh, wait a minute.......
Barbra Streisand was by far the best thing in the mediocre Guilt Trip. She nailed that character and managed to make her believeably human. It's not her fault if it was edited with an axe and written without flow and followup. She was the only reason it was worth watching.
by gay woman
Barbara Streisand's gay son Jason Gould has been reading and posting at Datalounge forever.
I think that explains the unrelenting, bitter defenses of Streisand all over this thread.
Here's a word to the wise, Jason, from your own mother Barbara Streisand:
"Shut the fuck up ... shut up if you can't take a joke!"
Show business is no place for people with thin skins.
"Among other things I think Prometheus was such a let down beacuse it had such an awesome trailer"
And yes, it was the worst movie of the year.
Plus the second most terrible prequel of all time, behind only The Phantom Menace.
And it's also the worst entry in the Alien saga, even worse than AvP. Quite a feat.
The Razzies have lost all credibility for failing to nominate that POS movie.
"Oh my God. I'm back. I'm home. All the time, it was... We finally really did it ... You Maniacs! You blew it up! Ah, damn you! God damn you all to hell!"
We are switching to the new platform for The DataLounge this weekend. All of our mobile users have been using it for over a week and all first time users have been using it for about a month - which adds up to well over one million users. So we're ready to end this phase of the testing and move everybody to the new site. (more)
And yes, we've changed the look and some of how it operates.
Yes, we know you just *hate* it in well in advance.
Yes, we know we suck.
Yes, we are the biggest suckers that ever sucked.
But it was time for a change and with the huge shift to mobile it was long overdue. We've taken this opportunity not only to update the look but also make major changes under the hood (or "bonnet" if you're either British or pretentious or both). And we have to prepare for 2016 - a presidential election year where we can normally expect to see a 60% jump in traffic (yes, we've seen 5 presidential elections so far…Christ we're old).
The site has a bunch - nay, plethora - of new features which will make the site more usable: better search, the ability to ignore posters and threads, see link previews, to pick up a thread where you left off, spam and malware filtering and more.
If you want you can go explore and see for yourself, Click here.
And while running the tests we've noticed two interesting reactions to the new system - people are spending more time on the site and more people that come stay around longer and look at more stuff. Both good things. Yay!
Possibly we've not slain all the dragons and there will be issues that come up during the switchover. There's a help button in the lower right hand corner of the page which you can use to send us bug reports.
Please include as much information about the hardware (PC, Mac, Tablet, Phone etc), operating system (Windows, Mac OS, Android, iOS etc) and browser (Chrome, Safari, Opera, Internet Explorer etc) that you are using as possible to help us replicate and fix the problem.
Please note that complaints about colors, fonts, icons and the like are not "bugs" - they are design choices that we've made and we expect one or two cases of world-class bitching. But they won't actually cause headaches, scurvy, heart attacks, Restless Leg Syndrome, Morgellon's Disease or the vapors (but have your smelling salts at hand just in case).
Talking to DataLounge servers. Please wait a moment...
