1. Louie (2010– )
TV-MA | 22 min | Comedy, Drama
The life of Louis C.K., a divorced comedian living in New York with two kids.
Watching an ugly fat loser trying to be funny and failing miserably is not my idea of a comedy
2. Izo (2004)
Not Rated | 128 min | Action, Drama, Fantasy
An executed samurai takes an existential journey throughout time, space and eternity in search of bloody vengeance.
Absurd and extremely boring, only Miike's die-hard fans will find anything of interest here (and not even them). Terrible.
3. Once Upon a Time (2011– )
TV-PG | 44 min | Adventure, Fantasy, Romance
A young woman with a troubled past is drawn to a small town in Maine where fairy tales are to be believed.
Not for adults, not dark. People say this is the best TV show in years. Can´t say many good shows are produced, although that is no excuse to randomly stick with one of them and raise it to a masterpiece status.
4. Independence Day (1996)
PG-13 | 145 min | Action, Adventure, Sci-Fi
The aliens are coming and their goal is to invade and destroy Earth. Fighting superior technology, mankind's best weapon is the will to survive.
Votes: 465,212 | Gross: $306.17M
Ronald Emmerich, one of the worse directors ever. See the titles he spawned and CRY. Who else can surpass his shallow plots, overused cliches and dumb characters?
5. Iron Man (2008)
PG-13 | 126 min | Action, Adventure, Sci-Fi
After being held captive in an Afghan cave, billionaire engineer Tony Stark creates a unique weaponized suit of armor to fight evil.
Votes: 765,294 | Gross: $318.41M
Nothing here but a man with too much ego and as much FXs as you can wish.
6. Iron Man 2 (2010)
PG-13 | 124 min | Action, Adventure, Sci-Fi
With the world now aware of his identity as Iron Man, Tony Stark must contend with both his declining health and a vengeful mad man with ties to his father's legacy.
Votes: 579,179 | Gross: $312.43M
Not as bad as the prequel. However, still 0 in originality and storytelling
7. Into the Wild (2007)
R | 148 min | Adventure, Biography, Drama
After graduating from Emory University, top student and athlete Christopher McCandless abandons his possessions, gives his entire $24,000 savings account to charity and hitchhikes to Alaska to live in the wilderness. Along the way, Christopher encounters a series of characters that shape his life.
Votes: 478,705 | Gross: $18.35M
The story of a selfish individual pretending to show us some pseudo-philosophycal wisdom. Nice landscape.
8. The Curious Case of Benjamin Button (2008)
PG-13 | 166 min | Drama, Fantasy, Romance
Tells the story of Benjamin Button, a man who starts aging backwards with bizarre consequences.
Votes: 501,620 | Gross: $127.51M
The same old love story. Only original thing, Pitt grows younger instead of older. Big potential wasted
9. World War Z (2013)
PG-13 | 116 min | Action, Adventure, Horror
Former United Nations employee Gerry Lane traverses the world in a race against time to stop the Zombie pandemic that is toppling armies and governments, and threatening to destroy humanity itself.
Votes: 513,211 | Gross: $202.36M
More zombie cliches. Only explosions and shootings. Plot shallow as hell. STOP MAKING ZOMBIE FILMS.
10. No Country for Old Men (2007)
R | 122 min | Crime, Drama, Thriller
Violence and mayhem ensue after a hunter stumbles upon a drug deal gone wrong and more than two million dollars in cash near the Rio Grande.
Votes: 689,393 | Gross: $74.28M
An average movie about good and evil. Nothing more, nothing less. Anything the Cohen release will be follow by praise. They didn't spawn a horde of worshipers for nothing.
11. The Book of Eli (2010)
R | 118 min | Action, Adventure, Drama
A post-apocalyptic tale, in which a lone man fights his way across America in order to protect a sacred book that holds the secrets to saving humankind.
Votes: 249,292 | Gross: $94.84M
So here we have a movie that tell us that the only way to save humanity is to lie to them, keep them under control as a brainless flock and to kill the heathens... Wow, your imaginary god would be proud.
12. Hellboy II: The Golden Army (2008)
PG-13 | 120 min | Action, Adventure, Fantasy

Votes: 223,427 | Gross: $75.75M
Del Toro mixes Pan's Labyrinth with the Hellboy universe here, creating an unwatchable parade of fairies, elves and trolls ala Disney. Where did all that darkness go?
13. [Rec] (2007)
R | 78 min | Horror, Mystery, Thriller
A television reporter and cameraman follow emergency workers into a dark apartment building and are quickly locked inside with something terrifying.
Another Blair Witch Project style movie with terrible acting (I can tell, I'm spanish).
14. I Am Legend (2007)

Years after a plague kills most of humanity and transforms the rest into monsters, the sole survivor in New York City struggles valiantly to find a cure.

Votes: 96,450 | Gross: $82.62M
I like crossovers. This is just boring.

Votes: 411,773 | Gross: $101.80M
I can't believe there are adults getting paid for writing stuff like this. Any 10 years old kid could come up with the same.
18. The House by the Cemetery (1981)
Not Rated | 86 min | Horror
A New England home is terrorized by a series of murders, unbeknownst to the guests that a gruesome secret is hiding in the basement.
Nice scary red eyes in the dark. Funny bat moment. Ok ending. For the rest, avoid unless you are into old B movies.
19. Daybreakers (2009)
R | 98 min | Action, Horror, Sci-Fi
In the year 2019, a plague has transformed almost every human into vampires. Faced with a dwindling blood supply, the fractured dominant race plots their survival; meanwhile, a researcher works with a covert band of vamps on a way to save humankind.
Votes: 111,312 | Gross: $30.10M
Vampires are still vampires. A terrible plot and old topics won't help.

Votes: 60,669 | Gross: $16.10M
Generic characters with typical attributes when directed by and targeted for black people. Lack of psychological depth. Gratuitous racist insults to white people by black people who are supposed to be "good" and "normal".
24. Source Code (2011)
PG-13 | 93 min | Mystery, Romance, Sci-Fi
A soldier wakes up in someone else's body and discovers he's part of an experimental government program to find the bomber of a commuter train. A mission he has only 8 minutes to complete.
Votes: 419,990 | Gross: $54.71M
Alright movie, with his good and bad/cliched things. However, with an actual score of 7.5, that's ridiculous.
