King Arthur: Legend of the Sword

A new movie about the king Arthur legend directed by Snatch/Shetlock Holmes director, former Madonna husband and Razzie winner Guy Ritchie starring the guy from Sons of Anarchy. It's cyrrently at 27% on RT. Any category-predictions?

Worst Remake is most likely. Maybe Worst Director and Worst Actor too.

Worst Supporting Actor for Djimon Hounsou could end up being the main frontrunner if Same Kind of Different as Me turns out to be just as bad as most people believe it is going to be.
Akiva Goldsman: The writer partially responsible for this year's triple threat of The Dark Tower, Rings, and, worst of all, Transformers: The Last Knight. I'll be shocked if all three screenplays do not make the ballots.

Worst Actor - Tom Cruise (nom), Matt Damon (nom), Johnny Depp, Jamie Dornan (nom), Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson (nom), and Charlie Sheen (nom)

Worst Actress - Kate Beckinsale (nom), Whoopi Goldberg (nom), Katherine Heigl, Dakota Johnson (nom), Milla Jovovich (nom), and Amy Schumer (nom)

Worst Supporting Actor - Javier Bardem (nom), Anthony Hopkins, Eric Johnson (nom), Ben Kingsley (nom), Rob Lowe (nom), and John Turturro (nom)

Worst Supporting Actress - Kim Basinger, Faye Dunaway (nom), Laura Haddock (nom), Marcia Gay Harden (nom), Goldie Hawn (nom), and Isabela Moner (nom)

Worst Director - Michael Bay (nom), James Foley, Martin Guigui (nom), Alex Kurtzman (nom), Guy Ritchie (nom), and Chris Wedge (nom)

And the consensus reads: "It piles mounds of modern action flash on an age-old tale -- and wipes out much of what made it a classic story in the first place."

On the Tomatometer, it has a 27% (a solid D), and on Metacritic, 41% (a C Minus). This begs the question of why it has a 77% Flixster Bucket score and 76% User Metascore (both B Plusses). Don't get me wrong, it still deserves consideration from us depending on competition, but why isn't it getting a C Minus or less across the board?

My recommendations for nomination:

Worst Picture

Worst Supporting Actress 
Àstrid Bergès-Frisbey. Her acting is quite dull and wooden.

Worst Supporting Actor 
David Beckham. His appearance in the movie is cumbersome.

Worst Prequel, Remake, Ripoff or Sequel


Dishonorable mentions: Worst Director, Guy Ritchie. Worst Screenplay; Joby Harold, Guy Ritchie and Lionel Wigram.

Hey Vits, I saw your ratings on IMDb. You forgot a King Arthur film, one that starred Clive Owen and Keira Knightley.

After web-crawling through the 2004 RAZZIE website looking for that year's quarterfinalists, I soon gave that version of King Arthur a place of eternal infamy and shame, opening up the countdown as #40 on the Bottom 40 Films of '004. It bears repeating, since some people get this confused, but that means I was declaring it the 40th worst film of that year.
