The Bounty Hunter


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.



As the movies of 2010 comes to a close, it’s time to look back and revisit the finer points of cinema. But here at Film School Rejects, we like to turn the spotlight not just on the best, but also on the worst. This year has been a particularly rough year for movies as more films fizzled than we expected. With the year quickly coming to a close, it’s time to look back and realize which films didn’t just disappoint, but caused us the most pain. So with the help of the entire staff here at FSR, our own curator of the wretched Kevin Carr has compiled the list of the year’s most unwatchable, unbearable and unfortunately unforgettable films — may there be mercy on the souls of anyone who endured all of these gems…



Last week saw one of my most prolific entries of This Week in Blu-ray, clocking in at over 3,000 words. Part of it was that there were a ton of quality releases to talk about, and the rest had something to do with me being several weeks behind. As promised, we’re back on the punctuality bus this week, speeding down the road to informationville. All poor analogies aside, I’m happy to report that this week’s column is on time. That said, I’m sad to report that there’s nothing great to report. This week’s release slate is a relative bust . Though I will try my best to find something interesting to talk about.



There wasn’t much in the way of surprises at the box office as Alice in Wonderland continues to tear up the box office with another first place finish and a haul this weekend of over $34 million.



Kevin Carr sits his chubbiness down weighs in on The Bounty Hunter, Repo Men and Diary of a Wimpy Kid.



While Neil is hitting on indie rock chicks during the second half of the SXSW film festival, Kevin is left at home finding a guest host. So, he calls on Kelly Gingery from to help him out. They lament the problems with The Bounty Hunter and take wild guesses about Diary of a Wimpy Kid and Repo Men.



The Bounty Hunter stars Gerard Butler as Milo Boyd as a bounty hunter (surprise!) who was kicked off the police force and now makes his living rounding up people who skip bail. Jennifer Aniston plays his ex-wife Nicole Hurly, a reporter on the trail of a story that just doesn’t seem quite right. Oh yeah, and she has a court date for assaulting a police officer. Predictable plots being the way they are, she misses the court date, which causes the judge to issue a bench warrant, and Milo jumps at the chance to take his ex-wife to jail and collect on the bounty.
