With all the hoopla about the big Sunday night movie award show, many of you might not have gotten the list of the big winners from Saturday night’s big movie awards show. I’m talking about the 34th Annual Razzie Awards. They were started in 1980 by John Wilson to celebrate the movie year’s worst achievements. The hour-long ceremony was held this past Saturday evening down the street from the site of Sunday’s big show. Without further ado, here’s the nominees and winners for the 2013 film year:
Worst Remake, Rip-off, Or Sequel:

Awards season comes to a head tonight as the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences presents the winners of the Academy Awards, and - as is traditional - yesterday saw the very worst of cinematic achievement celebrated with the 34th annual Golden Raspberry Awards.
While Adam Sandler dominated the nominations (as usual) with Grown Ups 2, the Razzie favourite went away empty handed for a change as the ensemble comedy Movie 43 and M. Night Shyamalan sci-fi After Earth picked up three gongs apiece, with Movie 43 claiming Worst Picture, Worst Director(s) and Worst Screenplay and Jaden Smith and Will Smith named Worst Actor, Worst Supporting Actor and Worst Screen Combo.

The results are in, the envelopes have been opened, and the "winners" of the 34th Razzie Awards have been unveiled in ceremonies held at Hollywood's coolest new venue - just down the street from Sunday night's Oscars - IgnitedSpaces. The hour long show handed out at least one statuette to four of the five Worst Picture nominees, but Adam Sandler and his unfunny follow up Grown Ups 2 went home empty-handed.
Taking three of the top awards was the star-studded, snicker-free sketch comedy Movie 43, which "won" for Worst Screenplay (written by at least 19 people), Worst Director ("credited" to 13 people), and Worst Picture. Tying with 43, and also "winning" 3 gold spray-painted trophies, was the Will Smith and Jaden Smith sci-fi fiasco After Earth. Dad Will Smith took Worst Supporting Actor, son Jaden Smith was named Worst Lead Actor, and the combination of father & son, described in the ceremony as being "stranded »
Right before the Academy Awards announces its winners, the 34th Annual Razzie Awards has unveiled the list of its own winners for the worst achievement in film for 2013. Taking the prize for the Worst Picture of the year is "Movie 43," beating out such films as "After Earth," "Grown Ups 2," "The Lone Ranger" and "A Madea Christmas." The movie also won for Worst Director and Worst Screenplay. The theme of this year's Razzies focused on the Smith family, with Jaden Smith winning Worst Actor and Will Smith winning for Worst Supporting Actor for "After Earth." The father-son team also won in the Worst Screen Combo category. The only good news is that Adam Sandler and his "Grown Ups 2" went some how ignored, despite dominating the awards show for two straight years. Check out the full list of nominees and winners (in red) below. Worst Picture: * Movie 43 * After Earth »

Glamour! Elegance! The sweet smell of self-congratulation! None will be present at the 34th annual Razzie Awards, a proudly low-budget event dedicated to dishonoring the previous year’s worst movies. (Actually, make that “no-budget”; have you seen the Razzies’ website? It looks like a Geocities page from 1996.)
There are several strong contenders in this year’s Razzies race, from father-and-son team Will and Jaden Smith to perennial “winner” Adam Sandler and Golden Raspberry Award Foundation favorite Sylvester Stallone, who snagged a record-breaking 31st nomination for his work in three 2013 films.

Remember last year when through its Amazon overlords Lovefilm put several pilots online including the pretty good failed Zombieland pilot? Well, they are at it again with ten new pilots, none of which have committed to series yet but with which the lucky few will go to one of those full season exclusive type deals that Netflix do so well.
I don’t know about you but I kind of wish they would just commit to something right out the gate and take the risks, its paid off for Netflix so far and Amazon are attracting some major talent to their stable too.
The pilots include; Bosch a detective show based on a Michael Connelly book series and starring the great Titus Welliver, Kids shows Wishenproof, Hardboiled Eggheads, The JoB and Graff Show and Gortimer Gibbons Life on Normal Street. We also have comedy from The Rebels; a kind of »

It's hard to figure out what Darren Aronofsky's Noah film is going to be like, isn't it? There's just so much conflicting information. On one hand it's directed by Darren Aronofsky, a man who, even when he fails, still manages to create work that's fearless and original. Then again, the trailer looks a bit like it could be for something by Roland Emmerich. Reports suggest that early screenings of Noah left Paramount worried, but then again, Aronofsky should be producing work that baffles executives. And Noah stars Russell Crowe from Gladiator, but then again it also stars Russell Crowe from Robin Hood. See? It's hopeless.
If you were waiting to scan a Noah poster for clues in the hope that it'd make up your mind, »

While there is a likely Oscar-winner, a massive box set from HBO, and some true crowd-pleasers in this week’s What to Watch, it’s a bit of a downer compared to some more recent jam-packed weeks of Blu-ray and streaming greatness. We also couldn’t find an On Demand title this week worth mentioning, although Denis Villeneuve’s “Enemy,” starring Jake Gyllenhaal, hits DirecTV On Demand this Thursday and you can bet we’ll be there to check it out before a March theatrical release. Until then, rent or buy something below.

HBO’s “Treme” never became the cultural touchstone that “The Wire” turned into over the year but it does have a loyal, devoted following who will be overwhelmed by the ability to own it all in one box set. One also gets the feeling that “Treme, »

Bro-dominated buddy comedies are set to face off Super Bowl weekend and it looks like the guys of That Awkward Moment might see Ride Along slowing to a crawl after two weekends of box-office dominance. Jason Reitman’s romantic drama Labor Day, starring Josh Brolin and Kate Winslet, is opening wide and Disney is also trying something new with the addition of the Frozen sing-along version — it was Fandango’s top-seller this past week.
Not surprisingly, Super Bowl weekend is notoriously slow at the movies. Last year the romantic zombie comedy Warm Bodies opened just over $20 million in the same timeframe, »

The 2013 RopeofSilicon Movie Awards I was hesitant to actually do a sixth year of the RopeofSilicon Awards for a variety of reasons, but most of all due to the deluge of awards handed out for movies at this point in our culture. As it turns out, I'm glad I waited and I'm glad I decided to go forward with the Awards. As we've moved into 2014 it became clear there were not only films and performances from 2013 that were still resonating with audiences, but there were some that hadn't gotten the attention I felt they deserved. Therefore, these awards afforded me the opportunity to highlight some of those films and performances. Looking back, 2013 was something of a strange year for movies. It was a year dominated by big budget features, but while many of those blockbusters made lots of money, they fell quite flat in terms of overall audience reception. Films »

Stallone and De Niro come face to face (again) in Grudge Match. Here's our review...
When Rocky Balboa hit cinema screens back in 2006, there was an incredible amount of cynicism attached to Sylvester Stallone’s return to the cinematic franchise that catapulted his career to super stardom. For many there was easy mileage in making jokes about Stallone’s advancing age, or in accusing him of cashing in on an old brand in a desperate attempt to have one final box office hit, yet his love of the character and the sheer determination to write and direct a glorious last hurrah for the beloved Balboa (well, apart from the upcoming TV series Creed) worked and worked well.
Frighteningly, it’s now been eight years since Sly’s last big screen boxing opus, but he’s proved that punching the living daylights out of things »
The 2014 Razzie Award Nominations have been released. These awards celebrate the worst movies that have been made over the year. The main film nominated this year include After Earth, The Lone Ranger, Grown Ups 2, Movie 43 and A Madea Christmas. I agree with most of the films on the list except The Lone Ranger. Yeah it wasn't the best most, and it was a box office disaster, but it certainly wasn't one of the worst movies of the year. Other bad movies that didn't make the nomination list include Paranoia, R.I.P.D., The Canyons, and A Good Day to Die Hard.
Below you'll find the full press release with the list of nominations. Are there any other movies you think should be on on it?

Sandler, a perennial Razzie "favourite", saw his film beat rivals such as Will and Jaden Smith sci-fi bomb After Earth, festive celluloid piffle A Madea Christmas and ensemble turkey Movie 43, all of which scored six nominations. The winners will be announced the day before this year's Oscars on 1 March.
Grown Ups 2, which was co-written and produced by Sandler, is nominated for worst movie, worst sequel, worst ensemble, worst screenplay, worst lead actor (Adam Sandler), worst supporting actor (Taylor Lautner) and worst director (Dennis Dugan). If Sandler "triumphs" in the worst lead actor section, »

One year shy of their 35th anniversary, Tinsel Town's Tackiest Trophy Derby continues to call on Hollywood's A-Listers to "Own Their Bad". This year's 34th Annual Razzie nominees include some of the biggest names in the movie business, who happened to star in some of the biggest box office bombs of 2013. For the first time in their history, the Razzies are also working with their worldwide fan-base of Po'd motion picture-goers, and the cutting edge crowd-funding website Indiegogo to put on a high-end show this year and pave the way for the first ever Razzies Awards Broadcast in 2015.
Garnering their first ever Razzie nods are some of the silver screen's most recognizable luminaries, including past Oscar nominees Johnny Depp and Naomi Watts as well as up-and-comers making crummy choices like Jaden Smith and Selena Gomez. The list also includes several "Repeat Offenders", returning for more pie-in-the-face/light-hearted joshing from »
The 2014 Razzie nominations list has been announced and it features all the usual suspects. The Adam Sandler and Co. sequel, Grown Ups 2, leads the list with eight nominations, making every category except the one for Worst Actress. That particular category features the list's only (relative) surprises with nominations for both Naomi Watts (Diana and Movie 43, and Halle Berry for The Call and Movie 43. Big-budget disappointments The Lone Ranger and After Earth each have multiple nominations, along with the expected fare of Tyler Perry movies and spoof comedies. Hit the jump to view the full list and find out who takes home the awards on Saturday, March 1st. Here's the list of the 2014 Razzie Awards nominations: Worst Picture The Lone Ranger After Earth Grown Ups 2 A Madea Christmas Movie 43 Worst Actor Johnny Depp (The Lone Ranger) Ashton Kutcher (Jobs) Jaden Smith (After Earth) Sylvester Stallone (Bullet To The Head, »

Awards season is well underway now and with all the various guilds, academies and circles naming their best films of 2013, the Razzies are stepping in to switch things up a bit. Every year they honor the worst that cinema has to offer and this year is no different. Like usual, most of their picks are exactly what audiences expected, with stinkers like The Lone Ranger and Grown Ups 2 leading the way.
Unfortunately, I had the displeasure of seeing most of these films and I can safely say that the voters are dead on. These are all pretty dreadful movies. Admittedly, there are a few choices that I disagree with (I didn’t think Ashton Kutcher was that bad in Jobs) but for the most part, all of these filmmakers deserve to be nominated in their respective categories.
