Deja Vu: Isn’t Jurassic World just Deep Blue Sea with dinosaurs?

19 April 2015 3:29 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Anghus Houvouras is getting a sense of deja vu from Jurassic World

1999 was a great year for blockbusters. Everyone was talking about game changing cinema like The Matrix and The Blair Witch Project. The Sixth Sense was a monster hit. It was almost enough to make you forget about just how terrible The Phantom Menace was. For my money, the most entertaining film of that summer was Deep Blue Sea. Renny Harlin’s insane, over the top survival thriller about genetically altered sharks trying to escape the oceanic facility that houses them.

I’m sure I don’t need to recount the plot points of this classic. A young, determined Scientist played by Saffron Burrows tries to develop a cure for Alzheimer’s using smart sharks. Thomas Jane is the bad ass with a checkered past charged with keeping these hyper-intelligent killing machines in check. Samuel Jackson is the investor »

Kirk Cameron And Cameron Diaz “Win” Big At 2015 Razzie Awards

22 February 2015 11:16 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Finally, the day we’ve all been waiting for has arrived. No, I’m not talking about any of that “Oscars” silliness, or Neil Patrick Harris taking on hosting duties. No, I’m talking about the 2015 Razzie Awards, in which all the crap of the crop from this past year in cinema at last gets its well-deserved comeuppance.

This year’s “winners” are a particularly disreputable bunch, with Kirk Cameron leading the pack for his atrocious Kirk Cameron’s Saving Christmas and Michael Bay reliably racking up more Golden Raspberry Awards for Transformers 4: Age of Extinction. It was a strangely good night for Ben Affleck, who took home the “Redeemer” Award for turning his career around from Gigli to Gone Girl, and a bad one for Cameron Diaz, who lost out in Worst Supporting Actress for Annie (which still, deservedly, won Worst Remake, Rip-off or Sequel) but received »

The 2015 Razzies "winners" have been announced, leaving the "losers" to breathe a collective sigh of relief -- because, well, who the hell wants to win a Razzie?

You see, for the past 35 years, on the eve of the Oscars, the Golden Raspberry Awards has honored the very best of the very worst movies released the previous year -- and this year's competition was nothing short of spectacular...ly tragic. Everyone -- from Razzie favorites Nicolas Cage and Michael Bay to newcomers Nicola Peltz and Gaia Weiss -- was in the crosshairs, but only 10 took home Razzies.

Here then, ladies and gentlemen, is the full list of winners from the 2015 Razzie Awards.

After touring the paranormal-plagued Collingwood Psychiatric Hospital, Colin Minihan and Stuart Ortiz, the writing/directing duo known as The Vicious Brothers, step out of the asylum’s haunted halls and into the woods for their latest film, Extraterrestrial.

A Rundown Of Buzzy Berlin Titles As Market Begins To Roll

6 February 2015 8:34 AM, PST | Deadline | See recent Deadline news »

The halls are starting to hum softly here in Berlin as the European Film Market swings into gear. The first deals were announced yesterday before the event officially opened, with The Weinstein Co notably boarding Im Global’s The Man Who Made It Snow. This morning, FilmNation unveiled a series of offshore output deals for titles from Open Road, which will kick off with the Jamie Foxx/Michelle Monaghan-starrer Sleepless Nights.

Though it’s not likely to be a frenzy, and with currency concerns in the market internationally, Berlin should see more action in the coming days. Distributors are looking for product for 2016 and beyond, and some memorable buys have emerged here in recent years. In 2014, The Weinstein Company made a record-setting $7M deal for The Imitation Game which has now made about $140M worldwide and has an armful of Oscar nominations to boot.

Much of the pre-buy buzz »

Is "Transformers: Age of Extinction" the Worst Movie of 2014? See Full List of Razzie Nominations! Who Gets Redeemed?

16 January 2015 1:36 PM, PST | Manny the Movie Guy | See recent Manny the Movie Guy news »

The Academy just announced the best in cinema of 2014 and now, here comes the Razzie saluting the worst! Michael Bay's "Transformers: Age of Extinction" receives the most nominations, all seven of them including Worst Picture and Screenplay! But somehow, Mark Wahlberg escaped the wrath of Razzie! And I thought he was horrible in the movie!

But this year, the Razzie introduces a new award. Maybe to show the softer side of Razzie! The new category is called the Redeemer Award which highlights previous Razzie regulars who redeemed themselves. My favorite is Ben Affleck who went from "Gigli" to "Argo" to "Gone Girl."

Winners of the 35th Golden Raspberry Award will be revealed on February 21st, the night before the Oscars!

Here's your complete list of Razzie nominees:

"Kirk Cameron's Saving Christmas"

"Left Behind"

"The Legend of Hercules"

Razzies: 2015 Golden Raspberry Award nominations announced

14 January 2015 11:41 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

With many of Hollywood’s finest busy on the awards season circuit, it wouldn’t be the same without the end of year Razzie nominations, which looks at those films that didn’t set the world alight in 2014.

It’s perhaps no surprise that it’s Michael Bay’s fourth Transformers film, Age of Extinction, that leads the way with seven Razzie nominations, including Worst Picture despite its worldwide box-office gross of over $1 billion. Bay himself is nominated for Worst Director, as well as Worst Screenplay.

Kirk Cameron’s Saving Christmas and The Legend of Hercules are just behind Transformers with six nominations, and join Nicholas Cage’s Left Behind and another Michael Bay production, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, in the Worst Picture category.

It’s also been another bad year for Cameron Diaz, who had three films underwhelm this year, and is nominated for Worst Actress for Sex Tape and The Other Woman, »

Die Hard: ranking the movies in order of quality

14 January 2015 10:55 AM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

You know what the best Die Hard is. You know what the worst is. But where do the others sit in the Die Hard league table?

A quick preamble. Over the course of the coming weeks and months, we're going to be exploring many of our favourite movie franchises, and ranking the films in order. Mainly because it gives us a further chance to talk about many of our favourite films.

Inevitably, the ordering in these cases isn't always going to come as a surprise - we go into this with the first and last place in most of these lists immediately obvious - but it's interesting to see how the movies stand in the context of each other. Police Academy week in particular should be a hoot.

When it comes to ranking the Die Hard films then, the battle is really between Die Hards 2 and 3 for second place. But »

2015 Razzie Nominations Unveiled; Transformers And Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Among The (Dis)honorees

14 January 2015 8:32 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

It’s awards season, and though most of the buzz right now is devoted to which titles stand a fighting chance of being included in tomorrow’s Oscar nominations, the 35th annual Golden Raspberry Awards, known as the Razzies, are here with their nominees to remind us that even that the most loathsome crap of the cinematic crop may be handled some trophies of their own next month.

The nominees for this year’s Razzies – the “winners” of which will be announced on February 21st, the night before the Oscars – are hardly surprising. Michael Bay has always been a favorite punching bag for the mock awards, and his Transformers: Age of Extinction is one of the most frequently mentioned nominees this year (the Bay-produced Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles also made the cut in a number of areas). The barely-remembered The Legend of Hercules shows up an awful lot as well, »

Blended and Transformers Lead the 2015 Razzie Nominations

14 January 2015 8:32 AM, PST | BuzzSugar | See recent BuzzSugar news »

A big box office doesn't always mean a great film. Case in point: Transformers: Age of Extinction. Michael Bay's fourth film in the franchise is the fifth-highest-grossing movie of 2014 - and it also scored seven Golden Raspberry Award nominations. The Razzies honor the worst in film, so the fewer nominations a film gets, the better it must be. Sadly for the Adam Sandler-Drew Barrymore comedy Blended, it's all over the list too. Same goes for Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and Seth MacFarlane's A Million Ways to Die in the West. The full list of nominees is below, including one new category: Razzie's Redeemer Award. This one you do want; it's the filmmakers who have regained their street cred. Take a look, and stay tuned for the winners to be announced on Feb. 21, the night before the Oscars.

Razzie Nominations: ‘Transformers 4′ Leads Pack; Redeemer Award Added

14 January 2015 6:38 AM, PST | Deadline | See recent Deadline news »

Nominations for the 35th annual Razzie Awards, which satirize “the Worst Achievements in Film for 2014,” are out. Transformers: Age Of Extinction leads the field with seven; while Kirk Cameron’s Saving Christmas and The Legend Of Hercules are tied at six nods each.

As usual, the Razzie races were unveiled one day before the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences announces its picks for the best achievements of the year in film. But are the Razzies softening at 35? A new category has been added this year for the Razzie Redeemer Award, which acknowledges “that past nominees and ‘winners’ can (and often do) go on to far far better things.” The inaugural class includes Ben Affleck, Jennifer Aniston and Kristen Stewart.

Elsewhere, along with Saving Christmas and billion-dollar box office hit Transformers 4, there are multiple mentions for A Million Ways To Die In The West, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles »

Transformers: Age Of Extinction Leads Golden Raspberry Nominations

14 January 2015 6:23 AM, PST | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

It may have been the highest grossing film of last year but there is no love for Michael Bay’s Transformers: Age Of Extinction as it leads the Razzie nominations. The Razzies, or Golden Raspberry awards, is an awards ceremony with a difference; rather than applaud the best and brightest, rewards are given to those who have created the worst in cinema.

Bay has been campaigning for Oscar glory and may see today’s news as somewhat of a setback, but his bank account will have the last laugh given the incredible box office the film received. The fourth instalment in the franchise received seven nominations for Worst Picture, Supporting Actor, Supporting Actress, Worst Rip-Off, Remake or Sequel, Worst Director, Worst Screenplay and Worst On-Screen Combo. Cameron Diaz also hasn’t faired so well with three of her films, The Other Woman, Annie and Sex Tape all picking up nominations. »

14 January 2015 2:30 AM, PST | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

The worst of the worst.

Yes, it's that time of year, where along with the best films of 2014, we honour the worst films of 2014. The Razzie nominations are out -- and they salute the worst movies and performances.

This year, "Transformers: Age of Extinction" is the worst offender with seven nominations, including worst picture and screenplay. "Kirk Cameron's Saving Christmas" and "The Legend of Hercules" each earned six nods, and stars like Seth MacFarlane, Cameron Diaz, Nicolas Cage, and Adam Sandler had their performances singled out.

A new category, the Redeemer Award, also honours past Razzie regulars on their recent work -- especially if they crawl out of the gutter into "real" award territory. (We're looking at you, Jennifer Aniston!)

Here's the full list of Razzie nominees:

Worst Picture

"Kirk Cameron's Saving Christmas"

"Left Behind"

"The Legend of Hercules"

"Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles"

"Transformers: Age of Extinction"
