The RAZZIES® were created in 1980 by lifelong cinemaniac and cynic John Wilson, author of both THE OFFICIAL RAZZIE® MOVIE GUIDE and EVERYTHING I KNOW I LEARNED AT THE MOVIES. Nominees were determined by mailing ballots to 737 Golden Raspberry Foundation members throughout 42 US states and more than a dozen foreign countries. Should they choose to accept their RAZZIES® "winners" receive a gold-spray-painted, golf-ball-sized raspberry atop a mangled super 8 film reel, with an estimated street value of $4.97.

Hollywood needs to stop recycling movie ideas and think up something original.

I definitely agree with that sentiment. However, this summer's listof big movies includes 9 sequels and a couple of remakes. As long as people keep paying to see remakes of movies from the 70s and 80s, expect to keep seeing crap...
