Nominations for the annual Razzies
-- a tongue-in-cheek award given to the "Worst Picture"(/Actor/Actress/etc) --have been announced, and I'm betting that quite a few of you will be surprised that Dragonball Evolution
wasn't nominated for a single "Award", despite coming out in the appropriate year. Actually, that's probably a bad sign: unlike predecessor Speed Racer (which was nominated for "Worst Prequel, Remake, Rip-off, or Sequel" of 2008 but didn't "win"), not even enough people went to see DB:E to get it nominated.
But I am happy to see that Astro Boy
didn't somehow find its way onto the list, probably because it came out so late in the year, and that no one found a way to make fun of Ponyo
either (but Miyazaki-sensei
, as much as I enjoyed the film overall, you're lucky there's no "Worst Ending" category...oh, who am I kidding, even if there was it'd be full of plenty of other garbage).
So, maybe 2010 and/or 2011 will be the year we start to see some decent adaptations?
