Marmaduke

The moment that Ricky Gervais secretly waits for every year is upon us. The nominations for the 31st Golden Raspberry Awards are in. The Razzies is a different kind of awards show, not one that heaps false praise on people that it doesn’t respect, but one that dishonors the worst work of the year. No, their nominees for Worst Picture aren’t quite as bad as the Golden Globe nominees for Best Picture – Comedy or Musical, but it’s still generally considered an insult to earn Razzie recognition, and God forbid you actually win. Looking over this year’s nominees has left me in a confused emotional state. The only film I’ve seen that on here is The Expendables. Does that make me a bad film fan or a smart consumer?  Can one truly appreciate the good if he hasn’t waded through most of the bad? In 2011, I solemnly vow to see more bad movies.

Join us each week as Rob Hunter takes a look at new DVD releases and gives his highly unqualified opinion as to which titles are worth BUYing, which are better off as RENTals, and which should be AVOIDed at all costs. And remember, these listings and category placements are meant as informational conversation starters only. But you can still tell Hunter how wrong he is in the comment section below. There are three DVDs worth Buying this week including the dark, modern noir of the Red Riding trilogy, the very funny spy spoof, OSS 117: Lost In Rio, and the complete series run of Thriller, but there’s also several flicks worth Renting including Harry Brown, Flashforward, Tormented, and yes, The Vampire Diaries. See all of this week’s relevant DVD releases after the jump…

Princes from Persia and Cougars from the City couldn’t take Shrek down, so no one was expecting talking dogs, annoying killers, genetic mutations, or even British rock stars to get the job done, either.

Box Office: Get Him to the Greek

This weekend at the box office, Shrek faces a four-on-one onslaught of newcomers, each backed by a different genre, and each bringing their own demographic. In the end, they all agree DREN is pretty damn cute.

Marmaduke Trailer

There’s only one way for this Marmaduke trailer to be any more unbearable than it already is — if it ended with “in IMAX 3D.” Aside from wondering why it is we continue to subject America’s impressionable youth to such low-brow humor and less-than-impressive CGI work, I’m also curious to know what the appeal of such a property is.
