Meet the Spartans (2008)
Welcome to the tenth installment of Razzie Contenders: 2009 Edition! In this special series of recaps, the Agony Booth staff takes a long, unflinching look at the awful movies that got nominated (or should have been nominated) for Razzie Awards in 2009!
I don’t know why I even bothered to recap this.
Oh, that’s right. It’s because I had the bad luck to be out of town when the Agony Booth 2009 Razzie Project started, and when I got back all the good nominees were taken. Otherwise I’d have done the recap of In the Name of the King. On the one hand, I didn’t get to fulfill my usual role as Resident Fantasy Nerd, but on the other hand, at least I’ve kept up my track record of never having watched a Uwe Boll movie.
So I shrugged it off and offered to do Max Payne instead. Then I found out it wouldn’t be available on DVD in my part of the world for months.
This left me with only one choice: Take one of the two movies that nobody else on the recapping team would touch. Thanks a lot, guys.
