The Razzie nominations and it’s…an impressive collection of garbage

The Oscar nominations, which recognizes the best in film from last year, are set to be announced Tuesday morning. However, almost as a middle finger to the Academy, the Razzie nominations are publicized. Now, for those unfamiliar with the Razzies, they – can anyone guess? – yes, recognize the worst in film from the prior year.

In any given year, just with the sheer number of films released, Hollywood churns out a ton of garbage. And being a film critic, I get the pleasure of viewing a fair share of the crap that invades the local metroplex.

Without any further ado, here are the unlucky films/actors/actresses that are being recognized for being especially awful:

WORST SCREENPLAY

No matter how you slice it, that’s a particularly impressive collection of garbage.

For my money, it’s Fifty Shades Darker all day, everyday. This one, the before it, and likely the one set to invade theaters next month, are trash.  Although, the total and utter disaster that was The Mummy is sure to contend..hard.

Anyway, here’s to a better flock of flicks in 2018! But let’s be honest, it’s not likely to happen.
