Bad Film Club’s Nicko joins me in reviewing “Batman & Robin.” It’s another #Podcrawl and this time we get stuck with the worst of the worst. This film is the fourth in the line of Batman movies that fans went to because they thought they had no choice.
It’s out of hand. All I know is that I couldn’t stop playing with my cats. It’s the most unprofessional episode ever. Ever. Totes.

From the Youtube page:
The Dark Knight Rises” in theaters July 20.
Warner Bros. Pictures’ and Legendary Pictures’ “The Dark Knight Rises” is the epic conclusion to filmmaker Christopher Nolan’s Batman trilogy. Leading an all-star international cast, Oscar(R) winner Christian Bale (“The Fighter”) again plays the dual role of Bruce Wayne/Batman. The film also stars Anne Hathaway, as Selina Kyle; Tom Hardy, as Bane; Oscar(R) winner Marion Cotillard (“La Vie en Rose”), as Miranda Tate; and Joseph Gordon-Levitt, as John Blake. Returning to the main cast, Oscar(R) winner Michael Caine (“The Cider House Rules”) plays Alfred; Gary Oldman is Commissioner Gordon; and Oscar(R) winner Morgan Freeman (“Million Dollar Baby”) reprises the role of Lucius Fox.
The Razzies , the Oscars for bad films, is under some heat. Gawker recently accused the group for only picking big named movies to get publicity. Others accused them of picking winners based on if the star of the film will come on or not (that was me privately to my friends).
But founder and Head Raspberry John Wilson shoots down those vicious rumors.
He does admit that he was approached by a publicist to rig the votes so the client would win. Hear the shocking response. John admits to swaying the voters by letting them know that the celeb will show if he/she wins. But he would never just fixed the votes. No hanging Chads here.
The Razzies have been getting some back lash, but let’s put in perspective, it’s a competition for the worst movie.
Do you think Adam Sandler should show up to the Razzies? If YES then press “Like” below. Or tweet your opinion.
