Razzie and Oscar nominees 2006

Time for the Razzie Awards 2006! I remember last year when Halle Berry actually showed up to accept her award for Worst Actress in Catwoman. The starting field is not as great (or bad) as last year, but there are a few gems such as Jessica Alba (nominated Worst Actress for both her invisible role in Fantastic Four and her role in Into the Blue), Burt Reynolds (also nominated twice!), Paris Hilton and of course the uncanny Uwe Boll as Worst Director.

No retirement in sight for Stallone

Now this was among the most unpredictable news I’ve heard in a while. After a decade of really awful productions (not that any of his eighties’ movies are any good, either), Stallone returns to the basics and goes for a revitalization of the two characters that made him famous: Rocky Balboa and John Rambo. That’s right, say hello to Rocky 6 and Rambo 4. Unfortunately this is not a joke.

Burt Reynolds for king

Nominees of the Razzie Awards 2005

Finally the nominees for the 2005 Razzie Awards are in! This is often more interesting than the more well-known rub-my-back-evening (a.k.a. Academy Award Oscars). A few of them were really obvious, such as Schwarzenegger’s Worst Supporting Actor for Around the world in 80 days (read my review for the full story on that awfully mis-casted scene).

Best movies of 2004

It’s amazing how much time of your life being spent in the cinema or in front of a wide-screen TV. A brief count revealed that I had seen roughly 150 films in 2004. Maybe that will explain my lack of tan? But this year has seen the release of a lot of great films, maybe one of the best years in a while. Here are my favorites, including links to my reviews in Swedish:

Bullet dodging on the tram

As the first snow of the year settled on the unsuspecting drivers in rush traffic, I sat on the tram and happened to see two girls in front of me who was playing with dolls. Well, action figures to be correct. They each had a figure of Elastigirl from The Incredibles, quite likely the sole survivor from a happy meal package.
