    It’s down to you I have the pleasure of saying I never saw any of the above listed movies :D
    Thank you, Nell!

    You’re very lucky or wise — or both, monkie! But I have to say I saw worse movies than these last year.

    Pick on the poor Airbender kids, why dontcha?!? Seriously, its as if the Razzie committee only saw seven or eight films in the entire year and relentlessly targeted the most successful ones. Eclipse wasn’t even that bad! And I notice that the nauseating Furry Vengeance is nowhere to be seen.

    I was very disappointed in the Razzies this year, Isaac. It seemed to me they went for the easy ones and left out true atrocities like “Furry Vengeance.” I don’t think they should include movies like “Vampires Suck,” which are intended to be dumb.

    Agreed completely. They chose easy targets this year and there was very little variety among the nominations. The Razzies seem like, in an attempt to gain the public’s attention, they are losing the humorous spirit that made them fun to watch in the first place.

The November Man
Pierce Brosnan knows what it is like to play a spy in a big-budget, glamorous, blockbuster. He was the most urbane of Bonds in four movies. He knows what it is to play a seedier spy in a prestige, mildly meta movie, the 2001 film "The Tailor of Panama" (with Daniel Radcliffe in a pre-Potter role). S
