Kirk Cameron’s Saving Christmas took home four Razzies, while Cameron Diaz’s roles in The Other Woman and Sex Tape earned her the Razzie for Worst Actress, and Michael Bay was named Worst Director for Transformers: Age of Extinction.
Ben Affleck won the debut of the Redeemer Award for having gone from Razzie-winner for Gigli to Oscar® favorite for Argo and Gone Girl. Full disclosure: this year I was a voting member for the Razzies.
From the girl power of Katy Perry in concert to the thud and blunder of Michael Bay’s Transformers to a Friday the 13th marathon of every Friday the 13th movie, EPIX has something for everyone in March. Follow the jump for details.
2014 might not have been the best in terms of box office grosses or bums in seats, but there were a lot of really great movies across every genre.
These are not them. These are the fifteen movies that had me wanted my ninety-to-a-hundred-and-forty minutes back. A few did big box office; a few got many terrific reviews; most appalled all who saw them. I doubt any careers were ended by any of them, though some probably should have been.
Without any further ado, follow the jump for my least favorite films of 2014. Enjoy (if that’s the right word)…
As befits a movie that has done over a billion dollars at the global box office, Paramount Home Media Distribution is giving Transformers: Age of Extinction an impressive home video release – at least on Blu-Ray and 3D Blu-Ray.
The Blu-Ray/DVD Combo Pack is a three-disc set with over three hours of extras. Extras like: Bay On Action – an in-depth interview with Michael Bay about his vision and approach to the film’s high-octane action sequences; the eight-part making of documentary, Evolution Within, Extinction and an Angry Birds Transformers trailer ‘where birds and pigs turn into Autobots and Deceptihogs, creating havoc on Piggy Island’ – and that’s just for starters. (The 3D Blu-Ray contains all the same extras plus the film as seen in IMAX).
Transformers: Age of Extinction will be available in all physical formats on September 30th – and on Digital HD two weeks earlier, on September 16th. Follow the jump for a complete list of extras.
For Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen, the great Roger Ebert wrote – in a fine example of restraint, ‘If you want to save yourself the ticket price, go into the kitchen, cue up a male choir singing the music of hell, and get a kid to start banging pots and pans together. Then close your eyes and use your imagination.’ For Transformers: Age of Extinction, allow the kid and the choir about an extra fifteen minutes, subtract Shia LaBeouf and add Mark Wahlberg and Dinobots. It wouldn’t hurt to have a little extra seat padding, either. Only the noise kept me from dropping off…
I always say that it is ok for Critics to have a bias when we walk into a theater, a good movie will be good regardless of your initial opinion, a truly great movie has the ability to turn you into a fan and change your mood. To make glad you dragged yourself out to the theater. Yeah, I know people are whining and complaining about Transformers, but are people complaining about the movie or just projecting their irrational hatred and jealousy of Michael Bay onto the film? He knows his audience and delivers everything a fan of this franchise could want and more.
