Uwe Boll Isn’t the Worst Director of the 21st Century, Says Metacritic, but He’s Close — See the Top 20

Uwe Boll Isn’t the Worst Director of the 21st Century, Says Metacritic, but He’s Close — See the Top 20
After naming Alfonso Cuarón the best director of the 21st century, Metacritic has gone ahead and averaged out filmmakers’ Metascores to name the worst directors since 2000. As with the first list, filmmakers must have made at least four movies in the last 17 years to be eligible — meaning that Tom Six (“The Human Centipede”) and Dinesh D’Souza (“Hillary’s America”) don’t qualify despite the fact that they’re far from critical darlings.

Uwe Boll, known for his oft-panned video-game adaptations, comes in at #2; the dubious honor of defeating him goes to Jason Friedberg and Aaron Seltzer, whose average Metascore of 14.5 comes from directing spoofs like “Meet the Spartans,” “Date Movie,” and “Epic Movie.”

More Shots of ‘The Eyes of My Mother’ in Color! (Exclusive)
I loved when Tom Six shared colored images from his Human Centipede sequel as it gave a unique look at what the film may have been like had it now been black and white. The same can be said for Nicolas Pesce’s must-see The Eyes of My Mother, a hauntingly beautiful and shockingly film that our own Fred Topel raved about, calling […]

Banned and Brutal: 14 Beyond-Controversial Horror Movies

Banned and Brutal: 14 Beyond-Controversial Horror Movies
There are horror movies that will give you nightmares, and cause you to fear showers and shallow waters for decades. There are some that get deep under your skin – often times because they've literally flayed or burrowed under their characters' skins – and others that will make you see everyday items (a bowl of pea soup, a hockey mask, a videotape) in a horrifying new light. And then there are the ones that push so many social-taboo envelopes, strike so many collective raw nerves and tweak so many communal gag reflexes that they are a cut,

‘Cherry Tree’ DVD Review

Stars: Anna Walton, Naomi Battrick, Sam Hazeldine, Patrick Gibson, Minnie Phipps | Written by Brendan McCarthy | Directed by David Keating

Faith’s world is turned upside down when she finds out her father is dying. When the mysteriously alluring Sissy Young becomes her field hockey coach, Faith finds a compassionate spirit and much-needed mother figure. Little does she know that Sissy is the head of a centuries-old witches’ coven using the fruit of an ancient cherry tree in a secret ritual that restores life. And soon Sissy has enticed Faith into making a fateful bargain that is about to change everything…

Cherry Tree feels very much like a jumble of ideas, as if someone sat down and thought about what they wanted to see in a horror film or what would make “interesting” visuals and then tried to string them together with the flimsiest of plots. And the visuals are definitely

Students Forced to Watch Human Centipede 2 in the Classroom?
Director Tom Six made a name for himself with 2011's bizarre cult classic The Human Centipede, which he followed up with 2012's The Human Centipede 2 and last year's The Human Centipede 3. The films weren't exactly box office hits, with all three grossing less than $350,000 combined at the domestic box office. But they certainly garnered their fair share of controversy, with a story following a bizarre doctor (Dieter Laser) and his disgusting, yet, supposedly "100% medically accurate" experiments. The second movie, The Human Centipede 2, is making headlines once again, four years after its release, as students in a Tennessee high school were forced to watch the movie in class.

While no details were given as to why the unnamed teacher made students watch this grotesque movie, superintendent Verna Ruffin confirmed to The Jackson Sun, via USA Today, that the film was shown to students at Jackson Central-Merry High School. An unnamed parent

Razzie Awards: 'Fifty Shades of Grey' and 'Fantastic Four' Tie for Worst Picture
All five films up for Worst Picture at this year's 36th Annual Razzie Awards are big budget/high profile productions that have no excuse for being among the year's "berry" worst. And 2015's acting contenders include popular stars like Johnny Depp, Channing Tatum, and Kaley Cuoco-Sweeting, previous Oscar winners Gwyneth Paltrow, Eddie Redmayne and Julianne Moore, and such Razzie Repeat Offenders as Adam Sandler, Jennifer Lopez and Katherine Heigl. The winners were announced last night, with Fifty Shades of Grey and Fantastic Four tying for Worst Picture.

The choices for Worst Picture include Fifty Shades of Grey (2015's "Most Successful Bad Movie"), Fantastic Four (a nearly instant remake that flopped with both critics and movie-goers), Jupiter Ascending (the latest sci-fi fiasco from Andy Wachowski & Lana Wachowski), Paul Blart: Mall Cop 2 (a box office hit despite its 95% negative rating at Rotten Tomatoes) and Adam Sandler's latest excuse for a movie,

The Razzie Awards Are Go – Get The List Of Awful

The Razzie Awards have actually managed to stake their claim on a part of the film world now, with their yearly release not going unnoticed by anyone, and this despite the fact that you too can vote for them, as long as you buy in.

This year was bound to be dominated by the biggest winners, because no movie managed more universal hatred than Fifty Shades of Grey (and those who hated it weren’t always waiting for the release), unless it was Fantastic Four and it’s director outrage kurfuffle (he managed his own award as well).

Many of the other awards were largely foregone conclusions as well, mainly because Kevin James, Adam Sandler, and The Chipmunks made movies… or whatever.

Still, worst movies and performances make for tricky voting. It’s hard to pick among the nominees sometimes, which explains the dual win for overall worst picture, but

Meanwhile, Sylvester Stallone was the recipient of the Razzie Redeemer Award, given to a past Razzie winner who has since redeemed themselves.

Yesterday, the 36th annual Razzie Awards nominations were announced by the The Golden Raspberry Award Foundation.

Kevin James, 'Fifty Shades of Grey' come up big in this year's Razzies
It's the day before the Oscar nominations are announced, and that means Razzies! Yes, the nominees for the awards that celebrate the best of the worst have been announced. Not too many surprises this year: "Fifty Shades of Grey," "Jupiter Ascending," and "Paul Blart: Mall Cop 2" led the pack with six nominations each. Really the only surprise was that "Mortdecai" wasn't up there with them (it only got three noms). Oh, and that Julianne Moore was nominated. I didn't see "Seventh Son" but I can't imagine that she was bad enough in it to be considered one of the worst performances this year. She's Julianne Moore! And dubious congratulations are in order for Kevin James, who was nominated in several acting categories for his work last year. Winners will be announced on February 27 -- as always, the night before the Oscars are handed out. Worst Picture "Fantastic Four"  "Fifty Shades of Grey
