Top Ten Worst Movies of 2010

Top Ten Worst Movies of 2010 ...that I saw

I typically don't like making "Worst of" lists because I tend to avoid several films throughout the year that I know I probably wouldn't like. So, when reading through this list just know these are the top ten worst films of the year among those I've seen.

I've perused the lists of others on the internet and noticed titles such as The Bounty Hunter, Marmaduke, Killers, Flipped, Grown-Ups, The Nutcracker In 3D, Little Fockers, Cats and Dogs: The Revenge Of Kitty Galore, You Again, Skyline, Yogi Bear, Burlesque, The Last Song, Dear John, Life as We Know It, Vampires Suck or Lottery Ticket. I didn't see any of these and have no intention of seeing them. So please take that into consideration.

However, before we get to the ten there were a few that fell shy of making the list, including The Tourist, »

Your Daily Fix Of Oscar: 12/30/10

30 December 2010 2:10 PM, PST | Scott Feinberg | See recent Scott Feinberg news »

The Hot Blog: David Poland claims that “True Grit,” the Coen brothers Western, “has muscled its way into the frontrunner slot to win best picture” as a result of its solid box-office performance over the long Christmas weekend. (It generated $36.1 million, good enough for second place behind “Little Fockers,” which brought in only $9 million more.) Methinks Poland is too smart to actually believe that and is just hoping to generate some late phase one traffic to his site and/or be the one guy who made a crazy pick that somehow came true (as Tom O’Neil attempted last year with “Inglourious Basterds”). Jeff Wells (here) and Sasha Stone (here) seem to concur.

New York Times: Manohla Dargis, Stephen Holden, and A.O. Scott, the newspaper’s three film critics, share their five selections for what/who this year’s Oscar nominees “should be” in this Sunday’s edition. Having obtained an early copy, »

30 December 2010 8:00 AM, PST | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

Warner Bros. (via Collider) have released the first image from Crazy, Stupid, Love which stars man of the moment, Ryan Gosling alongside Steve Carrell.

But when Cal learns that his wife, Emily (Julianne Moore), has cheated on him and wants a divorce, his “perfect” life quickly unravels. Worse, in today’s single world, Cal, who hasn’t dated in decades, stands out as the epitome of un-smooth. Now spending his free evenings sulking alone at a local bar, the hapless Cal is taken on as wingman and protege to handsome, »

Cinematic Shame: Worst of the Year

29 December 2010 6:58 PM, PST | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

year in review part 5 of several

I thought it would be tasteless to drop this lump of coal on Christmas so I saved it one day. It's naughty, not nice. But before we get to the unsatisfying trends, performances, and movies of the year, some caveats. I didn't see everything and am not, generally speaking, paid to attend terrible movies. Even when I'm doing freelance gigs, nobody has ever said to me "Nathaniel, we'd love for you to write a 3,000 word essay about Yogi Bear." [Editors of the world take note: I would totally do this for money.]

Most Repetitive Actor or Actress Dear Leonardo DiCaprio, you have now done three movies in a row where you're a tortured soul with an emotionally unstable dead wife. This is an even more specific brick-wall niche then when Jodie Foster kept getting trapped in small places or when Julianne Moore kept losing her children (imaginary or otherwise).

DiCaprio's new franchise!

It's time to shake things up. »

Shelter

29 December 2010 4:12 PM, PST | NextMovie | See recent NextMovie news »

Starring: Julianne Moore, Jonathan Rhys Meyers, Jeffrey DeMunn

Directors: Mans Marlind and Bjorn Stein

The Scoop: This intriguing thriller from the Swedish directing team of Marlind and Stein has an unusual premise: Moore plays a forensic psychiatrist who discovers that each of her patient’s multiple personalities is a different murder victim. Meyers is the patient, while “The Walking Dead’s” Jeffrey DeMunn co-stars as another doctor. An interesting entry in the psychological horror subgenre.

Best Performances, Directors, and Other Miscellany of 2010

29 December 2010 3:33 PM, PST | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

In my profession, there are two very important things you must do: watch movies and keep notes.  I did an alright job with the first one, but admittedly fell short on the latter.  While last year I was able to confidently provide what I thought were the best kills and quotes, this year I didn't do a good job with record keeping and so I've omitted those categories.  Next year I'll be more meticulous and make it a point to see movie where people get destroyed while saying witty things. However, I did see enough movies to confidently make a list of the folks I thought were the best actors, directors, and other miscellaneous greats.  Hit the jump to check out my picks.

Michelle Williams is “Hollywood Movie Star of the Week”

29 December 2010 11:43 AM, PST | Hollywoodnews.com | See recent Hollywoodnews.com news »

Michelle Williams broke into stardom on the teen series ‘Dawson’s Creek’ and later graduated to full-length features, most notably ‘Brokeback Mountain’ (2005), for which she earned an Academy Award nomination for Best Supporting Actress.

In 2006 she appeared in ‘The Hawk Is Dying’ with Paul Giamatti. In 2007, she was in Ethan Hawke’s ‘The Hottest State’ and in Todd Haynes’ ‘I’m Not There’ with Cate Blanchett, Richard Gere, Heath Ledger, and Julianne Moore. In 2008, she starred with Ewan McGregor and Hugh Jackman in the Marcel Langenegger film ‘Deception,’ and Martin Scorsese film “Shutter Island.”

Along with the Scorsese film, she shot four other films in succession. Independent filmmaker Kelly Reichardt’s ‘Wendy and Lucy’ was shown on September 27 and 28, 2008, at the New York Film Festival and opened on December 10, 2008. Williams was highly acclaimed, with some claiming the performance was her best yet. She is one of a “vivid ensemble cast »

An American Film Geek's Top 10 for 2010

29 December 2010 9:30 AM, PST | Twitch | See recent Twitch news »

From the vantage point of my mainstream movie beat, 2010 was a mixed bag. Maybe a bit schizophrenic, sometimes even a little backwards. (2010 gave us a movie called "Babies" and another called "Grown-Ups". Guess which one was more mature?) Reality-benders like "Catfish" and "Inception" challenged our perceptions of what is true, while the 3-D phenomenon, for the most part, challenged our resistance to headaches. But all of that aside, in the big picture sense, was it really any different than any other movie year? I don't really think so. Like past recent years, the naysayers were out in force mid-June, denouncing 2010 as the worst movie year since, oh, 1887. But such moaning was premature, if not completely unwarranted. After all, of the fifty-plus 2010 films that I personally was able to see this year, most of them had at least some sort of redeeming value. So, looking back, we can see (in 3-D! »

Finally, My Best Movies Of 2010! Why It's All About Characters!

27 December 2010 6:30 PM, PST | Manny the Movie Guy | See recent Manny the Movie Guy news »

Below is my written article (after the jump) on the Best Movies of 2010, listed per film in alphabetical order.

2010 was a great year at the movies. Both Hollywood and independent cinema offered thought-provoking gems that thrilled and entertained us. Because of the over-abundance of quality filmmaking, I decided that this year, I will forego with the annual Top 10 and instead, give you a list of the very Best Movies of 2010 (in alphabetical order):

.127 Hours. . .Slumdog Millionaire. vets, screenwriter Simon Beaufoy and co-writer/director Danny Boyle, reteamed to give us a haunting and oddly uplifting film about Aron Ralston, the mountain climber trapped under a boulder. James Franco gave one of the most brilliant performances of the year. ("127 Hours" movie review, "127 Hours" interviews with Simon Beaufoy, Danny Boyle, and James Franco)

.Biutiful. . Alejandro González Iñárritu (.Babel,. .Amores Perros,. .21 Grams.) tells a touching tale of a man in search of redemption. »

2010 Greggys: “The Kids Are All Right” named Movie of the Year

27 December 2010 2:47 PM, PST | Hollywoodnews.com | See recent Hollywoodnews.com news »

By Greg Hernandez

HollywoodNews.com: Well, you didn’t think it was going to be ‘I Love You Phillip Morris’ did you?

That movie, starring Jim Carrey and Ewan McGregor had its moments but overall, I didn’t love it. But kudos to Carrey for giving 100 percent to his performance. I just didn’t buy him and McGregor together for a single second and matters were not helped by the director’s decision to zoom out and dim the lights every time these two kissed.

Before I write about the superb ‘The Kids Are All Right,’ let me say that there were many excellent Lgbt films this year with ‘Undertow,’ ‘A Marine Story’ and ‘Bear City’ being among my favorites.

The Kids Are All Right,’ directed and co-written by Lisa Cholodenko, was simply terrific from the first frame to the last.

So smart, so funny, so sexy.

Oscar ballots mailed: Where do things stand?

27 December 2010 11:15 AM, PST | EW - Inside Movies | See recent EW.com - Inside Movies news »

The ballots for the 83rd Annual Academy Awards have been mailed today, beginning the all-important three-week-long period before they’re due on Jan. 14. Not much has changed in the past week since my last round of predictions (I am now putting Natalie Portman above Annette Bening for Best Actress, though I think the race is still too close to call). But I have been interested to watch as many of my Oscar-prognosticator colleagues have changed their predicted Best Picture winner from The King's Speech to The Social Network. Several of you have wondered in the comments why I haven’t switched my No. »

The best feature films of 2010

26 December 2010 11:23 PM, PST | blogs.suntimes.com/ebert | See recent Roger Ebert's Blog news »

David Fincher's "The Social Network"is emerging as the consensus choice as best film of 2010. Most of the critics' groups have sanctified it, and after its initial impact it has only grown it stature. I think it is an early observer of a trend in our society, where we have learned new ways of thinking of ourselves: As members of a demographic group, as part of a database, as figures in...a social network.

My best films list also appears on my main site, but I am posting it here on the blog so that you can comment on it. In response to the reader protests of recent years, I've returned to the time-honored tradition of ten films arranged in order from one to ten. After that, it's all alphabetical. The notion of objectively ordering works of art seems bizarre to me.

Here are the year's best feature films: »

Scott Feinberg’S Top 10 Films Of ’10

26 December 2010 7:59 PM, PST | Scott Feinberg | See recent Scott Feinberg news »

Please Note: The following rankings and remarks reflect my personal opinions and do/will not in any way impact my projections or analysis on this site, wherein I strive above all else to correctly forecast what will happen, not what I believe should happen. My demonstrated ability to do that over the years is what has led most of you to my site, and any failure to do that will undoubtedly lead you away from it, so you can rest assured that I mean it when I say that one has/will have no bearing on the other.

Scott Feinberg’s Top 10 Films of 2010

1. “The Social Network” (Columbia, 10/1, PG-13, trailer)

I distinctly remember sitting in a movie theater over the summer when the first teaser for “the Facebook movie” began playing, prompting groans and snickering all around me — stuff along the lines of, “What’s it gonna be about? A server crashing? »

Rio, Reese Witherspoon-Robert Pattinson's Water For Elephants: Easter 2011 Target

26 December 2010 6:09 AM, PST | Alt Film Guide | See recent Alt Film Guide news »

Box Office Mojo reported a few days ago that two 20th Century Fox 2011 releases, Carlos Saldanha's animated 3D feature Rio and Francis Lawrence's period drama Water for Elephants, starring Reese Witherspoon, Robert Pattinson (right), and Christoph Waltz, were having their North American debuts postponed by a week. Now The Hollywood Reporter explains the reason for the schedule change: Warner Bros. has moved Glenn Ficarra and John Requa's comedy Crazy, Stupid, Love, toplining Emma Stone, Ryan Gosling, Steve Carell, Julianne Moore, Kevin Bacon, and Marisa Tomei, from April 22 to July 29. That left an available opening at Eastertime. Thus, Fox pushed back Rio from April 5 to April 15, and Water for Elephants from April 15 to April 22. In 2011, Easter Sunday falls on April 24.

Mia Wasikowska in Tie With Johnny Depp in Forbes' Highest-Grossing Actors List

23 December 2010 8:46 PM, PST | Celebrity Mania | See recent Celebrity Mania news »

Mia Wasikowska has tied with Johnny Depp in Forbes' list of highest grossing stars. The relative newcomer, who took the leading role of Alice in Tim Burton's "Alice in Wonderland", which earned over $1 billion worldwide, tied with her co-star Johnny in second place of the Forbes list.

Mia's role in "The Kids are All Right" with Julianne Moore and Mark Ruffalo, also contributed to her second place ranking, grossing $29 million on just a $4 million budget.

However, the pair were pipped to the post by "Shutter Island" and "Inception" star Leonardo DiCaprio, who was the highest grossing actor of 2010, with his two film projects making more than $1 billion at cinemas worldwide throughout the year.

Daniel Radcliffe is the first non-American in the list, with the Brit coming in fifth thanks to his earnings from the "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part I". Robert Pattinson, Sam Worthington and Jackie Chan »

Choose The 1998 Academy Award Winners!

23 December 2010 6:30 PM, PST | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

I love that a heated discussion over Titanic’s infamous Oscar sweep of 1998 has already begun over at Laurent’s excellent retrospective. I guess it’s just the nature of this particular film. There is something about Titanic that hits a raw nerve in people and they feel a need to defend/criticize it so passionately.

As it happens, I fall in the ‘unconditional love’ category and I’m not afraid to admit it. To this day I have a passion for Titanic, a film that so perfectly matches what a glorious, spellbinding, big spectacle romance against an historic backdrop should be, and those films are so rare, especially when they are made with such precise and meticulous detail from James Cameron.

We shouldn’t be embarrassed over how much we loved Titanic in the 90′s. We should embrace it. So as our third ‘Choose The Winners’ article, we are »

Retrospective: Oscars 1998

23 December 2010 8:21 AM, PST | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Alfred Hitchcock famously quipped that the three things you need to make a good film are a “good script, a good script and a good script.” In February 1998 however the Academy voters decided to ignore these pearls of wisdom, much like they ignored the achievements of Hitchcock himself, when they chose to reward Titanic with a Best Picture win despite the film lacking a screenplay nomination.

This was the first time this had transpired in over thirty years and pretty much confirmed the idea that Titanic was being praised as a spectacle even though it has been proven time and time again that any spectacle without the benefit of good storytelling is only impressive until the next spectacle comes along. L.A. Confidential on the other hand which is as fresh and watachable in 2010 as it was thirteen years ago compliments the quote that “good storytelling never goes out of fashion. »
