2011 Razzie Worst Picture: Twilight, Last Airbender, Sex and the City
2011 Razzie nominations for Worst Picture of the Year are Twilight Saga: Eclipse, The Last Airbender, The Bounty Hunter, Vampires Suck and Sex and the City 2.
While there are plenty of awards shows out there that celebrate the best in movies, the Razzies are the only awards that celebrate the worse movies of the year. This year, like just about any year, there were no shortage of contenders, but they have made the hard choices and now we have the nominations for Worst Picture of the Year. The nominees are: The Bounty Hunter, The Last Airbender, Sex and the City 2, Twilight Saga: Eclipse and Vampires Suck.
Let’s break down the 2011 Razzie Awards nominations:
The Bounty Hunter stars Jennifer Aniston and Gerard Butler with Butler as a down and out bounty hunter that finds himself being offered what he thinks will be a very easy job and quick money. He has to track down and return his ex-wife (Jennifer Aniston) who is a TV news reporter. He thinks he will easy find her, bring her back and collect a check. Of course things don’t go so well when she keeps trying to escape and he keeps catching her. Eventually they end in involved in a murder plot that could get them killed. Aniston has about a 6:1 ratio meaning that if she makes seven movies one will be good. This isn’t that one. The plot in contrived and the actors even look bored. There is no wonder why this movie was nominated for a Razzie. If the cast looks bored, so will the audience. Probably a long shot to win.
The Last Airbender – M. Night Shyamalan was once the name you counted on for doing good work, but it has been a while since that M.Night has been around. This new movie is based on the popular cartoon, but it takes major liberties with the story, but can’t keep the fun and focus of the cartoon. The acting is not good and the movie is all around bad. This one is a strong contender for win Worst Movie.
Sex and the City 2 – As if one Sex and the City movie wasn’t enough the girls return for a trip to Dubai. The group takes their show to the middle east where they complaining because of the heat, the cost and the lack of amenities. All of the characters are obsessed with material things and their surroundings. It not only is bad, their obsession with some items and their reaction to other cultures portrays them as shallow and ugly and it makes them look and we as a nation look bad. This one is probably even money to win the award.
Twilight Saga: Eclipse – This one has to be the front runner for Worst Picture. The acting is bad, the story is bad, and the special effects are bad, it is just plain bad all around. You can almost tell by the looks on the actors faces that they are desperate to be done with all of this. If you are not a middle aged horny mom or a girl 15 who love Robert Pattinson and Taylor Lautner and under then this movie isn’t for you and is bad enough that it almost isn’t for anyone.
Vampires Suck – This movie was doomed from the start. Even the trailers for it were terrible. It is a parody movie lampooning all the recent vampire movies as well as other hot, recent movies. The problem they run into is that a bad movie is bad on its own. Making fun of bad movies is not that easy because they are already bad. It is easier to make fun of good movies, but they don’t do much of that here. This is a comedy with no laughs. Probably a long shot to win
In the end I think there are some strong contenders in this category, but I think Twilight will just be too strong to take down and it will take home the Razzie.
