The Razzie award nominations are out. And it looks like this year they're taking a (small) break from hating on Adam Sandler (don't worry, Blended is still on there) to highlight the truly terrible work that was Transformers 4.
This was a weird year for movies. The box office was weak, but also, most films didn't deserve love or hate. They were just... okay. But the genre movies that did stand out were either brilliant experiments, or horrible misfires. Here are the 10 best and 10 worst science fiction and fantasy movies of 2014.
Or at least, five different movies are being made, based on Liu's work. China Film Group Corp. is making three movies based on Liu's books: The Wandering Earth, The Era of the Supernova and Micro Era. Add to that two other Liu Cixin films: The Rural Teacher and a Three-Body Problem movie trilogy.
It's amazing what technical wizardry (and millions of dollars) can bring to life on screen these days. CG and practical effects can show stuff that would have been impossible even a few years ago.

Last week the folks at Hasbro sent out a box of new Transformers: Age of Extinction toys, several of which feature simple, one-step transformations. I've taken to calling them Transformers for Dummies, and they are so disappointing.
Between the Michael Bey-bot designs and Hasbro's heavy focus on simply transformations, the Age of Extinction toy line hasn't done much for me. But there is one toy I could not pass up. It's not what Evasion Mode Optimus Prime is, but what he becomes.
Star Mark Wahlberg says his new movie about giant robots fighting each will be "more realistic" than previous movies about giant robots fighting each other. Good to know!

Mark Wahlberg, the white guy in the obligatory Transformer's lead leather jacket, some sort of fashion model and Optimus Prime join together on the cover of Empire Magazine's latest issue. What does a giant alien robot with awesome strength need with a sword? Your guess is as good as mine.
