Devilman and Casshern Voted Worst Japanese Movies of 2004

The Kiichigo (raspberry) Awards, a Japanese version of the Razzi Awards (given every year for the worst in American movies), were announced last week's issue of Fumihara Weekly.

The Kiichigo (raspberry) Awards are determined by a panel of 20 judges, consisting of movie reporters and film critics.

The overwhelming majority agreed that the worst Japanese movie of 2004 was, by far, Devilman. "Radish-like" acting was given as the reason for Devilman's dubious honor.

Casshern, recently licensed by DreamWorks and due to be released in North America this year, was voted second worst movie of 2004. It was referred to as, "Nothing more than a promotional video for Hikaru Utada's videos." Casshern was directed by Utada's husband, Kazuaki Kiriya.
