Fate Of The Furious Is Disjointed, Nonsensical, High-Octane Action — And No One's Complaining! See The Fate In Our Review Roundup!

no title

In the span of 7 films, the Fast and the Furious franchise grew from a fast-paced B-action film to a full-blown, star-studded blockbuster franchise — and if Fast 8 is any indication, this series doesn't plan on slowing down.

But from the absence of series favorite Paul Walker to an overcrowded cast of action stars, how did The Fate Of The Furious fare with the backseat drivers of cinema, the critics?

Not so bad, it seems — as the film currently has a 79% rating on Rotten Tomatoes. Because nearly every early viewer knew the mindless action they were getting into, and praised the film for raising the bar with even more over the top stunts and explosions! (Dom racing a heat seeking missile? Sure, why not!)

Of course, those who actually paid attention to the story had a laundry list of complaints including: logic-defying action plots, a disjointed narrative, and unfathomable character decisions to make old enemies part of the gang.

Still, critics couldn't help but love Vin Diesel's grunty dialogue and testosterone-fueled one-upmanship between Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson and Jason Statham — not to mention series newcomers Charlize Theron and Helen Mirren adding some much needed femme fatalism!

Ben Affleck, Zac Efron, & 'Hillary Clinton' Are Up For Razzies! See The Shameful Shortlist!

no title

Every year, there are a TON of award shows that honor the best of the best in movies and film — and thankfully the Razzies also come around annually to give trophies to the worst of the WORST!

While we still won't know the finalists for the anti-Oscars, known as the Golden Raspberry Awards — Razzies for short — we now have the shameful shortlist of nominees!

Zac Efron made it onto the shortlist for his role in the critically maligned Dirty Grandpa, and Ben Affleck might be a finalist for his role in Batman v Superman! BTW, BvS was nominated in EVERY category except Worst Actress! OUCH!

Hillary Clinton even made the tentative list of nominees… well kind of. The "documentary" Hillary's America: The Secret History of the Democratic Party received several nominations, including one for Becky Turner, who plays her in the propaganda piece movie. One critic described the movie as "piggybacking a baseless personal attack onto a pseudo history lesson"; we're sure the real Hillary would LOVE to see this flick named one of the worst.

Ch-ch-check out the shortlist of nominees (below) as we wait for the FINAL list that will drop January 23 — only a day before the Oscar nominations announcement!

Will Smith's Collateral Beauty Is Getting DESTROYED By Critics! See Why They're Saying It's Oscar Bait At Its WORST!

It's a bad year to be Will Smith.

The actor's summer blockbuster Suicide Squad was considered a chaotic mess by critics (though still became a box office hit) — and his year-end Oscar bait film Collateral Beauty is shaping up to be the WORST reviewed film of the year!

The reviews came out for the star-studded drama ahead of its Friday release, and most failed to see any beauty in the "horrifyingly yucky" tear-jerker — with critics claiming its cast (featuring Helen Mirren, Keira Knightley, Kate Winslet, and Edward Norton) suffers from "actor abuse"!

Smith plays a New York ad exec who grieves over the loss of his daughter by writing personal letters to death, time, and love in so he can forge a personal connection with the universe.

While that concept has potential to draw some real emotion, most critics felt a manipulated sentimentality brought by the talented cast acting their best (except Smith, that is) in a story void of any real emotion! Ouch!

Ch-ch-check out the scathing reviews for yourself (below) — and see Collateral Beauty (if you dare!) in theaters December 16!
