While I'm not surprised to see Skyline take the #1 spot, and it's just as atrocious as James says it is, I still maintain that it's one of the funniest movies I've seen this past decade, solely due to how bad it is.

As much as I hate watching bad movies, there are some that I can't help but enjoy solely due to sheer badness. The Room is one, and I'd put Skyline right along side it.

The Last Airbender, however, made me sick when watching it...



Hi there

Nice to "meet" you

I'm dying to see Skyline in the hope that it's awfulness transcends bad

Rob


Likewise, nice to "meet" you too.

I should note that I as much as my friend and I found Skyline hysterical, the two of us, along with two people sitting in front of us, were the only ones laughing. Everyone else seemed to be stunned in sheer horror that they paid money to watch it. If you can watch movies like The Room and have a good time laughing at it, then by all means, check out Skyline. Otherwise, your reaction may end up being similar to James's.

The sad thing is, we know Aniston can act. She's just repeatedly chooses productions that require little effort, and she never gives more than the bare minimum


Sounds like she needs more Flair.

But the worst movie of 2010 is so obviously Saw 3D.

I have no doubt. I got lucky in 2010 -- nothing that I caught in theaters or DVD bearing the 2010 stamp ranked lower than *1/2 (All Good Things) and the average would weigh closer to **1/2 than anything else.

Well i'll say it's one of the worst, but i'd certainly much rather watch that film over say Jackass 3-D or I'm Still Here

I'd rather sit through 10,000 B.C. or House of 1000 Corpses again before I watched Saw 3D another time, 3D or otherwise.

I didn't think either of those films were particularly good or bad, just average and forgettable.

Zero stars. Both of them. Zero. Stars. Appallingly inept in every way, shape and form.

It's funny, man -- you've got the market cornered on the strangest brand of retrograde optimism. I like it.

Yeah, there's an experience i'd never want to wish on anyone! :lol: Josh i'll bet if you SATC2, then all those other films you gave zero stars to would like masterpieces by comparison! At the very least Saw 3-D and those Rob Zombie films have the advantage of being alot shorter then 150 minutes. Though on other hand that film is probably the main reason why James ended up reviewing Takers

I wouldn't wish the soul-crushing experience of I'm Still Here on anyone. Far and away the worst film I've seen this year.

From the reviews I've read, all these movies are beaten byThe Nutcracker in 3D. (1) The story is set in Vienna in the 1920s and is an allegory on the Final Solution, (2) All the ballet is removed, but (3) there are still musical numbers, including one by Albert Einstein (!), and (4) since nobody wanted to see it in 2D, they converted it to 3D!

So far it's running 0% at rottentomatoes and is a threat to make a run at such films as Roberto Benigni's Pinocchio, which I don't think ever did get a positive review.

The critical beating this movie is taking is spectacular. The critics seem to have some problems with all the talk of Freud as well as the many Third Reich references. I can hardly believe I was able to write that sentence without having to make up a single detail.

Oh yeah, I forgot all about Freud.

Completely agree about The Last Airbender — a catastrophic version of a good cartoon series.

Having just sat through the 3D trailer for Yogi Bear, I think I may have seen a contender for the next list.

You think that's bad? There's also a Smurfs film set to come out next year, I HATED the goddamn Smurfs to begin with, but a live-action film adaption?! I can't even begin to imagine how catastrophically awful that film will be! :evil: :shock:

HOLD ON

Let's grab Patrick

Tie him down in a cinema seat

Forceably open his eyelids a la Clockwork Orange

Press play on the super brite digital projection of Sex and the City 2

Hit repeat :-)

Stand back and listen to the screams

Welcome to the worst movie of 2010
