The 29th Annual Razzie Awards have mailed out ballots containing the nominees for the worst films of 2008 and it was a bumper year it seems.
Some inclusions seem undeserved, notably the likes of “Speed Racer” and “Rambo” which don’t compare to some of the true atrocities on this list.
Others though like “Disaster Movie,” “The Hottie & The Nottie,” “In the Name of the King: A Dungeon Siege Tale” and “The Love Guru” are totally justified.
