Am I the only one who thinks this will be the least terrible film this week (not saying that it won't be bad, but it does seem "the least bad)?

I mean we have a misguided swords & sandals with an unclear premise (The Eagle), a concertfilm which only purpose is to earn cash from it's stars tween fans (Never Say Never) and a film headlining two past razzie ofenders and directed by another one (Just Go With It

RESPONSE from Head RAZZberry: Not to worry -- Those other films you mentioned will have a shot at getting Forums later this week...

I'm guessing it's gonna be mediocre. I mean, this G-rated movie is made by Disney's mature studio, Touchstone. I know why though.
Pictures move, do they?

Hey, hold on a minute. A Touchstone film rated G? That can't be right.

So technically it's a Disney-film. It's never smart to dumb down Shakepeare for children, unless they do it cleverly like with The Lion King.

According the the trailers, yes. Rated G. Because Miramax was bought by another company and was booted off of the Magic Kingdom, so Touchstone bought rights to the movie.

This appears to be the Razzies's first mistake this year. I mean, they give this movie a forum, and it ended up not being that bad.

Just out of curiousity, Has an animated film ever made it on a nomination ballot (in the Worst Picture-categorie, i mean)

Vits, have you seen the movie already. If not, how do you know if it's good then?

Animated films haven't made the ballot since Eight Crazy Nights (2002). And if Vits hasn't seen the movie, he still has credence as far as the reviews are concerned.

That's right.Everytime I say a movie is good or bad I mean the general concensus,rather than saying "I think is...".

Vits, Right, but don't you find it a bit harsh if you say that it's a MISTAKE of the razzies to put it on their radar.

I didn't mean it like that.The forums are made for movies they assume will be bad.Sometimes they end up being bad,and some don't.

Just saw it: There were too many lame puns, the songs felt very detached from the story, and some scenes were no more than pointless filler. Shakespeare must be turning in his grave!

If you stop and think about it, Hollywood owes Shakespeare about a billion dollars worth of royalities and back-pay for all the adaptations they have done of his work, both the good and the bad.  

RESPONSE from Head RAZZberry: You're kind of missing the point here -- Hollywood doesn't love doing Shakespeare rip-offs 'cause they admire his work -- It's precisely because he's long dead, doesn't have a WGA card and doesn't need to be paid (unlike some living writer who might have -- God forbid -- ideas!). 

One of my own Personal Pet Peeves used to be that, when movies "freely adapt" the work of someone like Shakespeare, Mark Twain, Victor Hugo and their ilk, they almost never credit the original source of the material. But with the crappy quality of much of what's lately beeen perpetrated upon what was once considered "great literature," maybe it's just as well that they don't fob off any of the blame on Ol' Bill and His Literary Giant Pals... 

The Four Horsemen of the Moviepocalypse: uncalled for sequels/remakes/reboots, 3-D surcharges, untalented "celebrities", and anything with Michael Bay's name attached to it.

I totally agree with this.  When I saw the previews, I thought it did NOT look like a winner, to say the least.  LOL
