The movie has some good aspects, and some completely horrible aspects. It's a mixed lot, and at... *checks* 165, it really ought to be. Some of the fights were great, the mostly Decepticon-free plot was fine, Kelsey Grammar was cool, the debates about the ethics of Prime's behaviour were involved (please don't start one here or I will outright call you stupid). BUT there were a lot of exceptionally bad qualities which certainly warrant Razzies, not because of how exceptionally bad they are, but how much they ruin the film's tremendous potential. Sure there's worse aspects of Sharknado 2, but that's a movie with no mainstream attention and no potential. Transformers wasn't comprehensively terrible, it was just good enough to show people the potential it squandered.


Woooo!

As mediocre as AoE was, I can think of other movies from 2014 that are more deserving.

Gone Girl.

 
Wait, what?

Also Age of Extinction is bad, but the Razzies are dumb.


Don't know about anyone else, but I'm getting sick of Hollywood expecting people to cheer for leads who ae so stupid that they couldn't pour water out of a boot if the instructions were on the bottom.

Had the guy cooperated with the cops, the whole conspiracy would have been blown wide open. The rich snot would still be alive and his sister wouldn't have been slandered on live national television.

Just like with The Marked Ones. The kids had video evidence of someone plowing into their car and kidnapping their friend. All they had to do was go to the cops and say "We were just attacked by someone who kidnapped our friend; we think they're involved with some freaky cult he got himself in with. Here's where we were told they've been hanging out." LAPD SWAT would have handled the rest.

If you didn't like it that's perfectly fine, but it was a critical and commercial smash hit and is a frontrunner for a lot of Oscar nominations. There is no reality in which Gone Girl gets Razzie nominations.

Yeah, in recent years people have finally begun to figure out that there are things the military can do wich a few kids and a squad of robots can't. All Uncle Sam needs is a clear idea of who to shoot and what sort of firepower the target(s) will have to defend with.

I am sure Gone Girl has some plot holes and irrational character behaviour.

It is also directed by David Fincher who makes mundane sets atmospheric, gives characters subtle nuances and fills them with compelling humanity set in familiar worlds. Although I haven't seen it yet, based on Social Network, House Of Cards, and Se7en, I expect it is a touching piece which warrants Oscar attention. Despite any poor character behavior it might have.

 

I am certain Transformers 4 has massive plot holes and irrational character behaviour.

And as we have learned to expect from Michael Bay, There's predictable plot motions, and a ton of crappy acting from pointless characters. The tone is a scattered mess of coldness and patriotism. And it's production costs were three times that of Gone Girl's. While "Pain and Gain" gave me hope it could have been good, I have seen it and agree that Transformers 4 warrants Razzie attention. Despite the... cool soundtrack and awesome robots it had.

 

Interestingly, Transformers made roughly five times it's budget. While Gone Girl made roughly six times it's much smaller budget.

I wonder if the TMNT movie is also nominated for some Razzies.  I know Megan Fox is an easy target for nomination there.


Meh... I can list worse movies from 2014 than these two. AoE was much better than RotF and DotM, even if that doesn't mean it was good, and TMNT was just boring but not atrocious (though Megan Fox was not any better in it than she was in Jonah Hex).

As mediocre as AoE was, I can think of other movies from 2014 that are more deserving.

Paranormal Activity: The Marked Ones.
Pompeii.
Robocop.
Brick Mansions.
Rio 2.
Gone Girl.
Legends of Oz.
Earth to Echo
Ouija.
Exodus: Gods And Kings.

And so on.

2014 was a year ripe with stinkers, and so I'm wondering what supposedly made AoE stand out above so many others to get that number of nominations.


Rio 2 was a snorefest and so full of cliches that it took me some 3 days to get to the end of it.
Robocop I would not say was bad, just unnecessary and inferior to the old ones. Nowhere near as bad as the new Total Recall or Predators.
Legends of OZ, oh yes, certainly deserving. Was it a worldwide release though?

Is Exodus really that bad? Has some pretty good actors, and the story is as classic as they come. I haven't decided whether to watch it or not, yet.

As both a movie reviewer and a one-time Sunday school teacher?

Yes.

The film deviates from the Bible in more ways than I can list in a single post, so much that it's up there with "Starship Troopers" on my personal list of "Worst Adaptations Ever".

God's mouthpiece in the film is quite literally a petulant child, one who gets old in a hurry. Moses himself is depicted as doing what he does because he got cracked on the head by some stones and so is now hallucinating. Ramuses has every reason to ignore Moses because the latter came at him with a sword. Et cetra.

Et cetra.

The acting was over-wrought, the CGI was wasted, and it would appear that virtually no effort was made to actually find anyone of Middle Eastern heritage to appear as a main character since everyone who has a prominent role is as white as white can be.

AoE is a Shakespearian masterpiece by comparison.

I was going to say something along the lines of what a lot of other people are saying, which is "if Kelsey Grammer is nominated, it's a pretty clear sign that this is just 'well you were in this shitty movie so we don't care how well you specifically did in it'", but the actual list gives all of Grammer's parts for the year, so I guess it's a 2014 aggregate? Still probably stupid, but whatever.

There are a lot of terrible aspects, but a lot of things that Transformers were nominated for it was terrible in an insubstantial quanity. Yes the girl with the name I forget didn't act very well, but she also didn't do anything I can recall other than disagree with her dad a few times. A lot of these nominations are an excuse to mention the worst movie that the most people are familiar with.

Let's just hope the next film features mostly Transformers as the focal point and not the humans. Frequent transformations would be welcome and they don't need to be elaborate, better introduction of new characters (wasn't buying how they introduced the dinobots). Lastly no more sexuallizing of characters, I mean for God's sake the daughter was played as a 17 year old and that's just creepy being an adult and seeing that. Just not a good image to display.
