What’s the only way Nic Cage and “Saving Christmas” can win an award this year? The Razzies. John Wilson and his Golden Raspberry Awards celebrate the worst movies of the year. The new Razzie nominees are in! John join us to talk about his favorite nominees this year and in the past. He reveals which celebrities have a sense of humor and who can’t take the heat. John also tells us about his “politically correct” change, the new category that everyone will love and some of the best/worst movies ever.
New Year’s Eve ft. Robert De Niro, Halle Berry, Ashton Kutcher and other huge stars, that owed the late great director Garry Marshal a favor, make extended cameos in this big screen “Love Boat.” Mike Spiegelman (my big bro) and I take down “New Year’s Eve,” the semi-sequel to “Valentine’s Day” (or pre-quel if you go by the calendar).
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.
Listen to older shows.
Dan Kois talks his obsession with the Razzies.
Last year I interviewed the Razzies founder John Wilson about the history of the awards.
Chris Gore (From every podcast on itunes) picked “Logan’s Run” as his second favorite guilty pleasure movie. It’s great. Good plot, very cheesy effects (well models and toy trains) and tissue box robots. Apparently in the future, there are no bras. Gore is his hilarious self as he talks about the history of the film and his favorite parts.
This is the last part of a two hour interview we did a while back. This is the turkey sandwich after Thanks Giving. The best part in between some fresh bread.
Listen before that red dot tells you to die!
No more Gore..Actually we might tape a new show next Tuesday. Send us a recommendation.
Next week is a slightly longer show with TV’s Frank from MST3000. We’ll talk about “Valley of the Dolls.”
