An Interview with John Wilson, Razzie Founder
Before I get to the interview, one thing to note: I know a lot of people have been clamoring for my Razzie Month 2008 article, which I promised months ago, where I would describe the experience of watching all 25 Razzie-nominated movies in the space of a few weeks. (And by “a lot of people”, I mean no people. More people have been asking for new recaps of Degrassi Junior High, and nobody is asking for new recaps of Degrassi Junior High.)
Ultimately, I realized such an article would be completely impractical. With 25 movies to cover in detail, I’d still be working on it a year from now. And even though it’s only June, the time is soon approaching when I’ll have to start handicapping next year’s nominees (2008 already has two frontrunners, The Hottie and the Nottie and Postal, which could lead to another Norbit–I Know Who Killed Me-style face-off come next February.)
But since I’m reluctant to let a entire month of my life go to waste, what I’ll do instead over the next few weeks is revive the Screencap Recap, which I discovered last year to be a pretty painless approach to documenting painful films. (We’ll see how many of the 25 movies I can cover this way before I lose my grip on my reality.) Watch for my first Razzie Screencap Recap, coming soon!
