With films like "The Love Guru," "Valentine’s Day," "Good Luck Chuck" and "Fantastic Four" on her resume, Jessica Alba is aware not all of her films are critical darlings. "I mean, there's so many bad ones," she admits in a new interview with Allure. "But they're fun. You learn from every experience you have, right?" Though she seems comfortable with her IMDb credits, Alba may still have a regret or two. "I wish I found my voice as a person earlier," she continues, "because I felt like I had to just shut up and do what they wanted me to, even though it was against how I really felt." "I never wanted to play into a stereotype, where its like, Oh, you’re just the girl who gets saved by the guy, and she doesn’t know how to make decisions, and she gets overwhelmed with all this stuff happening around her, »

I remember when I was young, my father, a sort of rogue ecologist who learned everything he knew about rivers and their ecosystems secondhand, told me about these species of bottom feeders that lived in streams all over the Missouri and Mississippi river basins. I don’t remember what species they were but the thing about them was that they only flourished in polluted bodies of water. They didn’t flourish because of the pollution necessarily so much as their natural predators, killed off by the pollution, ceased to keep them in check and so their population would explode. Despite their usefulness as a gauge for the health of a stream, they were generally unwelcome.

The Screening House
Everyone has presumably sat down to a movie so inherently terrible that afterwards they’ve turned to a friend and said: “Well, that’s the last we’ll be seeing of that actor.”
Yes, movies have been killing careers in Hollywood for a long ‘ol time – Showgirls destroyed Elizabeth Berkley, Son of the Mask finished Jamie Kennedy, Superman Returns ended Brandon Routh’s chances at stardom, and The Love Guru finished off Mike Meyers.
It takes a seriously terrible work of filmic awfulness to end an entire career, but it does happen… from time to time. Be it a fresh-faced newcomer or an established star clinging to his or her last ounces of fame, a really bad movie has the power to destroy everything it touches – directors, writers, actors; a truly naff flick is something akin to career suicide.
What follows, then, is a list of 8 movies »

Justin Timberlake on the Oscars' Red Carpet Justin Timberlake at the Academy Awards The Social Network actor Justin Timberlake arrives at the 83rd Academy Awards, which took place on Sunday, Feb. 27, at the Kodak Theatre in Hollywood. At the ceremony, Timberlake and Black Swan actress Mila Kunis introduced the nominees – and eventual winners – in the animation categories. Throughout the proceedings, he pretended to be the elusive Banksy, whose Exit Through the Gift Shop was a Best Documentary Feature contender. The joke fell mostly flat, but Timberlake actually elicited some laughs when he imitated three-time Oscar-nominated veteran Kirk Douglas*, who mercilessly stretched the Best Supporting Actress announcement into what seemed like hours. Admittedly, Douglas was funny. (The winner in that particular category turned out to be Melissa Leo for David O. Russell's The Fighter.) As announced by the Justin Timberlake-Mila Kunis duo, the Best Animated Short Film was Shaun Tan »

One Direction fans, bring it on in for a virtual hug. Because we know you're hurting and we understand. Not only do we sympathize but we straight up empathize. Once upon a time, a band named Nsync decided to break up because someone just had to go solo and do stuff like star in a movie called The Love Guru. But whatever! We're not bitter about it still. What we're trying to say is we totally get the pain and anguish currently coursing through your bloodstream now that you've heard the terrible news that Zayn Malik will be leaving One Direction…for good. We just want to check up on y'all and see how Directioners are handling it. So let's just take a quick look at Twitter and… Oh, »

As is customary on the eve of the Oscars, the Golden Raspberry Awards have ‘honoured’ the very worst in cinema over the past twelve months with the 2015 Razzie Awards!
Kirk Cameron’s Saving Christmas took the biggest beating, receiving Worst Picture, Worst Actor, Worst Screenplay and Worst Screen Combo (for Kirk Cameron and his Ego). Michael Bay was named Worst Director for Transformers: Age of Extinction (which also received Worst Supporting Actor – Kelsey Grammer), while a new award – the Razzie Redeemer – went to Ben Affleck.
Here’s a full list of the nominations, with the ‘winners’ in red…

Right before the Academy Awards announces its winners, the 35th Annual Razzie Awards has unveiled the list of its own winners for the worst achievement in film for 2014. Taking the prize for the Worst Picture of the year is "Kirk Cameron's Saving Christmas," beating out such films as "Left Behind," "The Legend of Hercules," "Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles" and "Transformers: Age of Extinction." The movie also won for Worst Actor, Worst Screen Combo and Worst Screenplay. Even though Michael Bay's "Transformers: Age of Extinction" was nominated for seven awards, it walked way with only two, including a Worst Director award for Bay. Check out the full list of nominees and winners (in red) below. Worst Picture: * Kirk Cameron's Saving Christmas * Left Behind * The Legend of Hercules * Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles * Transformers: Age of Extinction Worst Actor: * Kirk Cameron - Kirk Cameron's Saving Christmas * Nicholas Cage - »
In a special billed as a tell-all, resident Bachelor Chris Soules was perhaps not as candid as we might have liked. However, the special did give us more Kelsey, who tried to explain herself with the kind of careful, over-enunciated manner we've come to know and fear. Host Chris Harrison also sat down with Andi Dorfman, still reeling from her split from Josh Murray.Kelsey Tells NothingKelsey was not only as insistent about her innocence as you might expect, she was actually surprised when Harrison told her that she was a controversial figure. "Am I really that controversial?" asked Kelsey, »

For the second time this season, Monday's The Bachelor featured a rejected contestant begging for another chance at love with Chris Soules. Jordan, who was ousted in week 2 for being the drunkest, hottest mess that ever talked for an entire episode about wanting to make out with Chris, drove from Colorado to New Mexico - where this week's episode was shot - to make her case. Also, Kelsey showed her true colors (and that's why we love her, but just kidding, because she may actually be nuts), we learned that Britt doesn't shower, and Carly and Chris visited a love »

When Johnny Depp‘s mustache comedy “Mortdecai” brought in less than $5 million on opening weekend, it marked the A-list actor’s fifth straight box office bomb. But he’s far from the only top billed actor to endure a tanker or two.

I spent all week trying to scheme for some angle to not have to see Mortdecai. Maybe this would be a good week to go see a couple Oscar contenders that we missed, maybe our readers would rather hear about The Boy Next Door and see if there’s any chance of a J. Lo comeback, anything to keep me from having to write about a movie that looked to be Johnny Depp doing his best to murder his career on the same hill Mike Meyers went to for The Love Guru. Finally, late on Friday, I came up with a counterpitch that stuck: I should go see Strange Magic because it’s a George Lucas film (or at least a George Lucas story credit) and ComicMix readers probably have a strong opinion one way or the other on the man who launched and arguably sank two of the biggest geek franchises of all time. »

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:

The 35th Annual Razzie Awards have announced the nominees for the worst achievement in film for 2014, with Michael Bay's "Transformers: Age of Extinction" earning a total of seven nominations, including worst picture and screenplay. "Kirk Cameron's Saving Christmas" and "The Legend of Hercules" each earned six nominations. Both are up for the Worst Picture award, alongside Nicolas Cage's "Left Behind" and "Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles." Check out the full list of nominees below, and stay tuned for the awards show, which will take place on Saturday, February 21st, the day before the Oscars. Worst Picture: * Kirk Cameron's Saving Christmas * Left Behind * The Legend of Hercules * Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles * Transformers: Age of Extinction Worst Actor * Kirk Cameron - Kirk Cameron's Saving Christmas * Nicholas Cage - Left Behind * Kellan Lutz - The Legend of Hercules * Seth MacFarlane - A Million Ways to Die in the West »
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.

Hollywood was not happy with box office returns for 2014, their lowest-grossing year in recent history. Despite a handful of high-grossing hits, there were way more major misses - movies based on recycled premises and re-worked concepts that were already tired a decade or more ago, the cinematic equivalent of re-treaded tires. Those are the films The Golden Raspberry Awards have annually "saluted" since 1980.
Nominees for the 35th Annual Razzie Awards, satirizing the Worst Achievements in Film for 2014, include new names and several Repeat Offenders, returning for more pie-in-the-face/light-hearted joshing by the one Tinsel Town trophy derby no one sets out to win. And, in a new spin on the entire Razzie concept, this year launches a new category acknowledging that past nominees and "winners" can (and often do) go on to far far better things. Contenders for the inaugural Razzie Redeemer Award include Ben Affleck, Jennifer Aniston, Mike Myers, »
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, »

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!)

The most important nominations of the awards season have been announced.
News: Kim K. Wins Razzie For Worst Actress
The 35th annual Razzies, which recognize some of Hollywood's "Worst Achievements in Film," are going to be a tight race this year. Transformers: Age of Extinction leads with seven nominations, but the film is going up against some other truly hated entries such as The Legend of Hercules, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, and Kirk Cameron's Saving Christmas.
Some of the more interesting nominations, however, come in the acting categories, where Blended star Adam Sandler and Tammy star Melissa McCarthy are both nominated for Worst Actor and Worst Actress respectively – despite having just won People's Choice Awards on Jan. 7.
Even more surprising is the Worst Remake, Rip-Off or Sequel nomination for the musical Annie, which was also »
The 35th annual Golden Raspberry Awards (better known as the Razzies) nominations are out, and it was a not a good year for “Transformers,” which led the field with seven nominations.
Kirk Cameron was well-represented as well with six nominations. The remake of his “Left Behind” series got nominations for its new star Nicolas Cage, and for Worst Picture. It must compete with “Kirk Cameron’s Saving Christmas,” as well as “The Legend of Hercules,” “Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles” and “Transformers: Age of Extinction.”
