Razzie Award winners: They really are the best of the worst!
The full list of the winners, including the diabolical adaptation of the Nicktoons show, The Last Airbender...
As what has now become tradition, The Golden Raspberry Awards (Razzie's) were held last night, a day before the Oscars, to celebrate (or rather berate) the cinematic low points in the last year.
Leading the pack was Sex and the City 2(SATC 2) and The Last Airbender. The Last Airbender was a big disappointment to the millions of fans of the animated show, including all of us here at Heavy Eggs. The show was loved for its ability to transcend the medium which as a result attracted viewers from all ages and cultures. The movie however, managed to gut all that.
The Last Airbender could have (arguably) had the same success as other epic trilogies such as Lord of the Rings, and Narnia. Instead, M. Night Shyamalan decided to effectively speed through the episodes of Season 1 of the show (while changing key elements - pun intended) and making the famed fighting styles from the show look like a series of postures. The Lacklustre performances did not help either.
Interestingly, many of the pitfalls were predicted by the creators of the show in the episode "Ember Island Players"- I wonder if the movie was announced before the episode went into production or after. If any of you eggheads know, do share it with us!
