77 Reasons Christopher Lloyd Is Awesome, in Honor of His 77th Birthday

Happy 77th birthday to one of our favorite actors, Christopher Lloyd!

The actor, who's played some of filmdom's most beloved characters, including Doc Brown in "Back to the Future," Professor Plum in "Clue," and Uncle Fester in the "Addams Family" films, was born on October 22, 1938 in Stamford, Conn.

Partly because of his height, and partly because of his manic intensity and commitment to even the wildest characters, he's portrayed a series of eccentrics, from mad scientists to aliens; had an impressive, award-winning theater career; and will always be remembered as Reverend Jim on "Taxi."

In honor of his 77th birthday, we've come up with 75 reasons why he's so awesome.

1. He's played a Klingon, a cartoon, the Wizard of Oz, an angel, a leper, and a geriatric vampire.

2. He stands an impressive 6'1."

3. Because he's so tall, he had to hunch over to appear in the same frame with "Back to the Future

DVD Obscura: The Indie and International Movies You Should Watch This Month

New Indie of the Month On your shelf of Contemporary Classic Bad Movies, make room alongside The Room, Birdemic, Miami Connection and Ben & Arthur for The Oogieloves in The Big Balloon Adventure (Lionsgate), a mind-bending kiddie romp that’s perhaps most famous as the lowest-grossing wide release in cinema history. “But it’s a children’s film!” I imagine some of you yelping. “It’s not fair to hold it to the standards of more mature fare.” Here’s the thing: even by kids' movie standards, Oogieloves goes into areas of crazy hitherto unexplored. Whether it’s the array of name stars (including Cloris Leachman, Chazz Palmintieri, Toni Braxton, Cary Elwes, Christopher Lloyd and Jamie Pressly) embarrassing themselves...

Box office disaster: Lindsay Lohan film 'InAPPropriate Comedy,' directed by the ShamWow guy, earns $625 per theater

Box office disaster: Lindsay Lohan film 'InAPPropriate Comedy,' directed by the ShamWow guy, earns $625 per theater
A film that you probably weren’t aware even existed, starring Lindsay Lohan, Michelle Rodriguez, and Adrien Brody (the man has an Oscar, remember?) and directed by Vince Offer — a.k.a. the ShamWow/Slap Chop infomercial pitchman (and occasional prostitute beater) — just had one of the worst box office debuts since The Oogieloves in the Big Balloon Adventure.

The movie, called InAPPropriate Comedy, earned $172,000 from 275 theaters this weekend, yielding a wretched $625 per-spot average. According to its IMDb description, the Freestyle Releasing film follows what happens when “a computer tablet full of the world’s most hilariously offensive apps breaks

The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part 2 Takes Home 7 Razzie Awards

The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part 2 Takes Home 7 Razzie Awards
This year saw yet another Razzie sweep, but this one was incomplete: Although The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part 2 went into the 33rd Annual Razzie Awards race with a near-record 11 nominations (more nods than there were categories) it only managed to "win" seven spray-painted statuettes, including Worst Picture, Worst Actress (Kristen Stewart) Worst Supporting Actor (Taylor Lautner), Worst Screen Couple (Lautner and 12 year-old Mackenzie Foy) and Worst Screen Ensemble. Throw in Worst Remake/Rip-Off or Sequel and Worst Director for Bill Condon, and the fifth and final Twilight film is 2012's most-Razzed movie. But Twilight S.B.D. #2 (as Razzie wags prefer to refer to it) still fell short of last year's unprecedented all-ten-category sweep by Adam Sandler's Jack and Jill. Sandler wasn't totally over-looked, though: The aging, schlubby comic took the Worst Actor Razzie for the second year in a row, and his film That's My Boy

It's Official: 'Breaking Dawn' Is the Worst Movie of 2012

There were a whole lot of bad movies last year, but after all the votes were tallied and the industry grudges settled, Hollywood officially named the worst film of 2012 yesterday at the 33rd annual Razzie Awards — and "The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part 2" was the clear winner loser, earning Golden Raspberries in seven categories including Worst Picture.

But was it really the worst film of the year?

It's clear that the people voting for the Razzies thought so. Besides Worst Picture, "The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part 2" also won for Worst Actress (Kristen Stewart), Worst Director (Bill Condon), Worst Supporting Actor (Taylor Lautner), Worst Screen Ensemble, Worst Rip-Off, Remake or Sequel and Worst Screen Couple for the admittedly creepy pairing of Mackenzie Foy and Taylor Lautner.

"The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part 2" wasn't the only film being pilloried, of course. Adam Sandler, for instance,

The Worst Movie Of 2012

The Worst Movie Of 2012
Los Angeles — The "Twilight" team finally has earned some love – or loathing – from Team Razzies.

"The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 2" was picked as last year's worst picture Saturday by the Razzies, an Academy Awards spoof that hands out prizes for Hollywood's lousiest movies on the eve of the Oscars.

The finale to the blockbuster supernatural romance dominated the Razzies with seven awards, including worst actress for Kristen Stewart, supporting actor for Taylor Lautner, director for Bill Condon and worst screen couple for Lautner and child co-star Mackenzie Foy.

Adam Sandler was named worst actor for the raunchy comedy "That's My Boy," his second-straight win after 2011's "Jack and Jill," which swept all 10 Razzie categories a year ago. Pop singer Rihanna won worst supporting actress for the action dud "Battleship."

"Twilight" movies had been well represented in Razzie nominations over the years but had not won any key awards there.

The Razzies: Which bad movies will/should win at this weekend's most important awards show

The Razzies: Which bad movies will/should win at this weekend's most important awards show
All around Hollywood, the movie industry’s best and brightest are preparing for the year’s biggest awards bonanza — a starry, starry night of designer dresses, well-deserved wins, and touching acceptance speeches.

But as exciting as the Independent Spirit Awards may be, they can’t hold a candle to the Golden Raspberry Awards. Since 1980, this off-brand ceremony has rewarded the best in bad film, giving cinematic trainwrecks like Mommie Dearest, Howard the Duck, Showgirls, and Battlefield Earth the dishonor they deserve. The films in contention this year may not be quite as terrible as those that have won in years

What's Truly the Worst Movie of 2012?

  • Movies.com
This weekend, an annual event will spotlight the worst in cinema from last year. No, I'm not being super cynical about the Oscars. The 33rd Golden Raspberry Awards (or Razzies) are also being held, and it should be a bittersweet affair given that it's the last time its voters get to nominate a Twilight movie for anything. Well, until they the series is rebooted or the year 2020, when they can include the whole Twilight Saga in the Worst of the Decade categories, whichever comes first.  Contending for Worst Picture this year are The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn -- Part 2, Battleship, That's My Boy, A Thousand Words and The Oogieloves in the Big Balloon Adventure. The last of these is part of a problem we could have with the Razzies, because obviously it...

TV on Tap: "America's Got Talent" Adds a Spice Girl, Twitter Turned "Scandal" into a Hit, and Will Online Shows Break Through at the Emmys?

Suits wraps up its second season by putting on a tuxedo.

News

Will Arnett has joined a comedy pilot from Raising Hope creator Greg Garcia, a move that makes Up All Night look even more doomed. The show focuses on a recent divorcee who realizes his own parents' marriage is pretty troubled.

America's Got Talent has found someone who can fill Sharon Osbourne's seat, adding Mel B (also known as Scary Spice) to the judges' table. Agt is not the former Spice Girl's first talent show job. She was a judge on the Australian X-Factor. EW also reports that NBC's summer staple might add a fourth judge to the table.

Mark Blucas has joined the cast of the drama pilot Killer Women as a DEA agent who solves crimes with Tricia Helfer's Texas Ranger. Wonder what this could mean for his Necessary Roughness gig?

Lessons From a Giant Box Office Bomb, and Why Its Creator Still Believes

Lessons From a Giant Box Office Bomb, and Why Its Creator Still Believes
At the very least, give producer Kenn Viselman some credit for his grip on reality. "You don’t have to be delicate," he says, inviting honesty about his recent failure in the same way a sickly person might joke about his or her own illness to break the tension around cautious friends. "Don’t worry. I’m just giving you permission, you don’t have to worry about the politics of it." And so, here is the blunt truth: Viselman's kiddie film, The Oogieloves in the Big Balloon Adventure, had one of the worst opening weekends of all time last September, opening to

Awards snubs and the Golden Raspberry nominations

Feature Mark Harrison Jan 10, 2013

Have the Golden Raspberries become as predictable as the Oscars? Mark looks over this year's nominations...

The beginning of the year in movies is typically dominated by awards season, and with this week's announcement of the Academy Award nominations on both sides of the pond, (the BAFTAs on Wednesday and the Oscars on Thursday) there's no shortage of articles about apparently egregious snubs. Only eight BAFTA nominations for Skyfall? No Best Picture nomination for The Impossible? Like a song by Journey, it goes on and on and on and on.

It's less frequent that you see people complaining about the snubs at the Golden Raspberry Awards, (or Razzies) the cheekily counter-programmed ceremony that names and shames the worst films of the previous year. If you're unfamiliar, you might remember Sandra Bullock's crazy weekend in 2009, where she pulled off the impressive feat of winning the Razzie

Hotel Transylvania

Hotel Transylvania

Directed by: Genndy Tartakovsky

Cast: (Voices of) Adam Sandler, Andy Samberg, Selena Gomez, Steve Buscemi, Cee-Lo Green, Fran Drescher

Running Time: 1 hr 34 mins

Rating: PG

Release Date: September 28, 2012

Plot: Protective daddy Dracula (Sandler) tries to kick out a nosy human (Samberg) who accidentally walks into his hotel for monsters only, and also falls for his vampire daughter Mavis (Gomez).

Who’S It For? For all of you families considering a trip to ol’ Hotel Transylvania, beware: a field trip 200 miles through a flaming minefield to a second-run theater playing ParaNorman would offer a more fulfilling movie-going experience. More specifically, this is for kids who are enabled in their junk food addictions.

Expectations: With roles in movies like Zookeeper, Sandler is not good at voice-overs, and with a movie like Jack and Jill he is certainly not very good at family comedies. As for the director, this is Tartakovsky’s first debut,

Your Box Office Explained: No One Loves Oogieloves
This Weekend’s Winners: After years of laboring in the shadow of zombies and vampires, the Dibbuk finally gets his due: Sam Raimi’s presentation of the low-budget (just $14 million) horror film The Possession carried the year’s traditionally most anemic holiday weekend with $21.3 million. Meanwhile, the Shia Labeouf Prohibition-era action film Lawless produced respectable numbers for the Weinstein Company, finishing second with $11.8 million.This Weekend’s Losers: The $60 million independent animated film The Oogieloves in the Big Balloon Adventure has achieved a distinction no film ever wants: At a mere $445,000 through its first three days and with approximately $600,000 through Monday, its 29th place opening also marks the single worst wide-release debut ever. (On the upside, it relieves 2008’s execrable Delgo of that honor, no doubt to the unending relief of Freddie Prinze Jr.) How It All Went Down: As the U.K.’s Guardian newspaper rightly points out,
