batman v superman reactions

Whenever we talk about the Golden Raspberry Awards, alternatively known as the Razzies and A Cheap Exercise in Snark That Doesn’t Actually Go After the Worst Movies of the Year But Rather the Most Obvious Punching Bags, it’s important to remember that these “awards” are the worst. With that said, Zoolander 2 and Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice led the 2017 Razzie nominations.

Zoolander 2, a forgettable and mediocre sequel that was far from the worst movie of 2017, leads the pack with nine nominations. Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, a bad movie that is far too interesting and too much fun to talk about to seriously rank as one of the worst films to hit theaters last year, landed eight nominations. Gods of Egypt, a delightful misfire constructed of pure insanity and Jupiter Ascending-level bonkers imagination, received six nominations. Independence Day: Resurgence, a terrible movie that I just-to-happen to like, also received six nods.

If you squint, you can actually see some movies that deserve to be listed amongst the worst movies released in 2016, specifically Dirty Grandpa and Hillary’s America: The Secret History of the Democratic Party. The “winners” will be announced on Saturday, February 25.
