Ranking This Year's Razzie Nominees : ECLIPSE not worthy of a RAZZIE nomination

Least Worst:02222011_eclipse1.jpg
"The Twilight Saga: Eclipse"
Directed by David Slade

A classic Razzie popular-over-putrid pick. "The Twilight Saga: Eclipse," like "Rambo," will never make an AFI Top 100 list. But that doesn't mean it was one of the worst movies of the year, or even of this series (saga, sorry; I forget sometimes). I suspect there isn't a lot of overlap between "Twilight"'s target audience and the Razzies' voting block (if there was, after all, "Eclipse" wouldn't make the cut). But again, that doesn't necessarily place the movie on par with this year's other Razzie nominees. Clearly this movie does something right -- all the marketing in the world can't sell $700 million dollars worth of tickets if the movie is unwatchable. Director David Slade wrang about as much suspense as can be had from a movie about a bunch of people sitting around in the woods waiting for something to happen (no, this is not a dig at "Harry Potter." Okay, it totally is). And say what you will about stars Kristen Stewart, Robert Pattinson, and Taylor Lautner: they have chemistry. Like it or not, that's what the audiences keeps coming back for.
Worthy of a Razzie Nomination? No. If neither of the previous, lesser "Twilight" movies were nominated -- and they weren't -- then this one definitely didn't deserve to be.
