Needcoffee Picks the Razzies

Razzie Award

Yes, it’s that time of year again where Hollywood gets a well deserved slap in the mouth. The nominations for the 2007 Golden Raspberries have been announced and the selections truly demonstrate what spectacles of shit can be produced with millions and millions of dollars. Widge and I decided to take a look at the list and see who will receive the Razzie this year. But remember, all the nominees are losers, big fat losers.

Worst Movie:

  • Bratz
  • Daddy Day Camp
  • I Know Who Killed Me
  • I Now Pronounce You Chuck & Larry
  • Norbit

Widge: Toss-up. Bratz is sheer crap whereas I Know Who Killed Me stars the much loathed-Lohan.
Scott: I’m going with Norbit. It got more public notice than it deserved because of Murphy’s role in Dreamgirls and will be in more voters’ minds.

The Matrix (1999) – Movie Review

The Matrix movie poster

Written & Directed by: The Brothers Wachowski
Starring: Keanu Reeves, Laurence Fishburne, Carrie-Ann Moss, Joe Pantoliano, Hugo Weaving

My Advice: Matinee.

Meet Thomas Anderson (Reeves), by day mild-mannered software programmer, by night “Neo,” a hacker extraordinaire. His life seems to be going fairly well, until he meets someone he was never expecting to: the uberhacker to end all uberhackers, the legendary Morpheus (Fishburne), and the man has a secret which will change Neo’s world forever. But the change is a hard choice that once made is nothing you can walk away from and potentially quite lethal.

Okay, here’s the few items of bad news I can impart. First of all, Reeves’ acting prowess hasn’t increased any. Second, the setup of Reeves’ character before the fit starts hitting the shan is measured in nanoseconds. Third, parts of the ending struck me as hurried and cheese-ridden.
