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, »

Say What? Hollywood’s 25 Best Quotes of 2010

31 December 2010 9:00 AM, PST | NextMovie | See recent NextMovie news »

What do Megan Fox, Dolph Lundgren, iguanas, lesbian sex scenes, and The Hulk all have in common?

Besides the fact that we love them, all these things enter into our list of the wittiest, most shocking, and awe-inspiring quotes from Hollywood’s best and brightest this past year.

Let’s take a look back at some of the soundbites that sent shockwaves through the web, and a few you may have missed. Who’s got the sharpest tongue, and who should just keep their mouth shut? Read on…

Why’d Megan Fox Get Canned from ‘Transformers 3′?

“I had been tanning a lot so that Michael would be happy with my skin tone. Every spare moment of sun that was outside, I had to be in it. It’s not going to happen again because of the damage and the possible skin cancer.” –Megan Fox on Michael Bay, before she »

Week in geek's best of 2010

31 December 2010 6:26 AM, PST | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

It's not been a vintage year for fanboy fare, writes Ben Child, but he's managed to find a top five worth shouting about. Post your own shortlist below

Once again we find ourselves in the season of lists, and just as was the case last year, I find myself incapable of finding 10 films that I can recommend as the year's best. Does this say something about the dearth of quality fanboy fare? Quite possibly. We may have emerged from the bad old years of Joel Schumacher Batman movies and Ben Affleck in a pimp suit, but there are still more poor and distinctly average films out there than there are great ones.

This year saw the arrival of Predators, much-hyped but ultimately a tired retread with few new ideas to revive the franchise, not to mention a pointless Laurence Fishburne pseudo-cameo. We also had the fetid Jonah Hex, in which »

2010 In Review: Phil’s Films of the Year

31 December 2010 4:19 AM, PST | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

Well this is it. The end of 2010, and a last chance to look back on just what films made the year for me. There’s bound to be some surprises for some of you out there – although if you’ve been reading Blogomatic3000 for the past year you’ll no doubt have a good idea where this list is headed!

This list is compiled of all the cinematic releases of 2010, not the DVD or Blu-ray releases, you can check that list out here.

10) Machete

The type of film that has been long-missed in my house: a loud, gory, Ott, macho arse-kicking extravaganza that ticks all the good action movie boxes and isn’t afraid to be politically incorrect, sleazy, sexist and even racist! Compared to the glut of PG-13 rated PC action movies that we’ve seen on the big screen in recent years, this film is a breath of fresh air. »

31 December 2010 4:00 AM, PST | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

This month has been one of the best that I can remember for trailers. All the studios were desperate for their trailer to get released before the Christmas holidays and we were inundated with posts. Since I love trailers so much, the inundation was most welcome. In what I am considering making a monthly post, here’s a roundup of all the trailers so far for December which I have embedded below for your viewing pleasure!

I’ve embedded them in the order in which they were released start December 1st to 31st and if I miss any, please let me know and I’ll update the post.

I really want this to be intereactive so make sure you tell us which trailers you liked the best and which you think will be great or terrible movies from what you’ve seen! So, let’s go!

Tsr Buzz: The End of Geekdom, Kinectimals, and The Year in Cat Videos

29 December 2010 9:13 PM, PST | The Scorecard Review | See recent Scorecard Review news »

With Tsr Buzz, you’ll find links to articles, videos and other random things that will help you waste your time just a little bit more.

Did the internet shut down this week?  I’m having a hard time finding anything that’s not a best of list.  Speaking of, Best of Cat Videos courtesy of Gawker. Patton Oswalt brings a call of arms for geek culture. I’m not sure I agree that Geek culture is dead (I think he just aged and what he liked as a kid became more mainstream) but it’s still good reading. Well, fine. If no one wants to make new, funny videos this week, I’ll have to find some old stuff to show.  Here’s The Lemonheads video for “Luka” featuring a young, attractive, Evan Dando.

New images from I Am Number Four

29 December 2010 8:41 AM, PST | Shadowlocked | See recent Shadowlocked news »

Here are a couple of images from the 2011 February 18th release of I Am Number Four. Directed by D. J. Caruso (Disturbia, Eagle Eye), and produced (amongst others) by Michael Bay and Steven Spielberg, I Am Number Four is a Dreamworks outing centering on fugitive John Smith (Alex Pettyfer), whose status as a mild-mannered student belies the stream of pursuers who seem determined to kill him. As the title indicates, Smith is not the first person to have fled from his mysterious pursuers, and on the run discovers amazing new powers and first love Dianna Agron...

Micmacs Blu-ray Review

29 December 2010 6:10 AM, PST | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

French filmmaker Jean-Pierre Jeunet’s (A Very Long Engagement, Amélie) latest, Micmacs-a revenge tale laden with arms trade satire and a light dash of romance-has finally hit store shelves in the "U.S. of A." For those film lovers unfamiliar with Jeunet’s style, he’s like the Michael Bay of whimsy-bombarding his audience with blasts of vivid colors, absurdly cartoonish characters and classical depictions of love in place of explosions, cleavage and helicopters. Although Micmacs’ world is our mundane own, through Jeunet’s lens it is unrecognizably alive. With his knack for fantastical world-building and painterly eye, Jeunet’s visual palate is as surreal and unique as Tim Burton's…if Burton traded his black nail polish for glitter. His films are the definition of style over substance, and while Micmacs leans too heavily on that notion-more so than its predecessors in the Jeunet filmography-there are few directors whose »

Cool Stuff: Infographic of Bad Science In Sci-Fi Movies!

28 December 2010 5:00 AM, PST | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Could Michael Bay’s Armageddon possibly be more scientifically accurate than the Alien movies?

Is the fantastical James Bond movie Moonraker more accurate than the Star Wars films?

Are Apollo 13 and The Right Stuff 100% free of common scientific errors?

That’s the claim made by this interesting infographic created by Io9 which illustrates the space movies that feature the most common scientific mistakes from the sci-fi genre.

Remember the more ticks, the least accurate the film…

I09 elaborated on there list, which doesn’t include Star Trek as they weren’t willing to watch the ten movies and hundreds of t.v. episodes…

There’s no sound in space

Not all planets have Earth gravity

Planets should have diverse climates, instead of one unified climate across a “desert planet” or “forest planet.”

It shouldn’t be too easy to communicate with alien creatures, without some kind of high-technology “translator” explanation. »

IO9 has created a handy chart which shows which space movies feature the most common scientific mistakes.

Forbes' List of Hollywood's 20 Highest Earning of 2010 provides no real shockers

27 December 2010 3:14 PM, PST | Pop2it | See recent Pop2it news »

They're rich. They're famous. They're (almost all) attractive. It's Forbes' list of Hollywood's 20 Highest Earning of 2010!

There are no huge surprises on the list, which Oprah Winfrey tops, bringing in a cool $315 million dollars. The top 20 seems to be divided into sub-categories: Talk show hosts, Hollywood director and producers, pop starlets and everyone else, including Judge Judy

Judge Judy came in at the bottom of the list bringing in $45 million dollars. "Avatar" mastermind James Cameron lead the Hollywood directors and producers while Tiger Woods was the only athlete to make the list.

Five pop starlets made the list, including Beyonce who brought in roughly $87 million in 2010, Lady Gaga, Britney Spears, Miley Cyrus and Taylor Swift. The Queen of Pop Madonna placed just under Gaga, earning $58 million.

Our favorite on the list? Equality! There's an equal amount of men and women. Now that truly is awesome.

Owf’s 52 Must See Films of 2011

24 December 2010 11:00 PM, PST | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Usually around this time of the year we list maybe 10 or 20 films that we think are as absolute ‘Must See’s’ for what the next 12 months of cinema has to offer us but as the clock is ticking ever closer to midnight on 2010, we thought we would challenge ourselves a little further this time around. The question I posed to the Owf staff recently was… can Cinema in 2011 produce enough ‘Must See’ films to hit 52, which would ratio out to be just one film per week? That’s all we are hopeful for here… just one film every Friday that justifies us parting with our ever increasingly important cash in these tough economic times.

Did we manage to find 52? Kind of.

There’s certainly 52 films listed here but once we got to around 30, the whole thing became a struggle and we had to fill it out disappointingly with the usual array of over-budgeted summer spectacles, »

Exclusive: Tron: Legacy Director Joseph Kosinski on Easter Eggs, Secret Cameos, IMAX, Daft Punk B-Sides, Reshoots, and so Much More

23 December 2010 6:39 PM, PST | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

At the end of last week, I met up with Tron: Legacy director Joseph Kosinski for an extended interview at a local restaurant in Los Angeles.  It was right before the movie got released, and while I'd already spoken to him at the press junket, he'd agreed to give me more time for an extended conversation.  The fact is, you can only ask a few questions during a TV interview and most of the time you walk away feeling like you only scratched the surface. However, during my epic 50 minute conversation, Kosinski and I discussed everything I could think of and I also asked the questions a lot of you sent me on Twitter.  Some of the things discussed were what Michael Bay told him before filming, secret cameos, the Easter Eggs, the Daft Punk music and what never made the soundtrack,  what might be in Tron 3, the IMAX release, »

‘I Am Number Four’ Trailer #3: Super-Powered Aliens On The Run

23 December 2010 9:32 AM, PST | ScreenRant.com | See recent Screen Rant news »

For better or for worse, the previously-released previews and promotional material for next February’s big screen treatment of the hit sci-fi novel I Am Number Four have thus far sold the movie as essentially being Twilight with aliens instead of supernatural creatures.

A third theatrical trailer has been released for producer Michael Bay/director D.J. Caruso’s alien teens with superpowers pic -- one that’s all the more interesting because it focuses more on the main character’s other worldly heritage and attempts to control his deadly abilities.

Here’s the official synopsis for I Am Number Four:

Extraordinary teen John Smith (Alex Pettyfer) is a fugitive on the run from ruthless enemies sent to destroy him. Changing his identity, moving from town to town with his guardian Henri (Timothy Olyphant), John is always the new kid with no ties to ...

New Extended Trailer for I Am Number Four

23 December 2010 7:27 AM, PST | Reelzchannel.com | See recent ReelzChannel news »

The first full-length theatrical trailer for I Am Number Four, director D.J. Caruso's (Disturbia) adaptation of the book of the same name by Pittacus Lore (the pseudonym of writers James Frey and Jobie Hughes), debuted two weeks ago and now DreamWorks has released an extended theatrical trailer that contains a bunch of new footage from the movie (and a much better score).

Produced by Steven Spielberg and Michael Bay, I Am Number Four stars Alex Pettyfer as Number Four, one of nine alien refugees from the planet Lorien who attempts to hide from an evil race of competing aliens known as the Mogadorians by living among humans as John Smith, an average high school student. However, with three Loriens dead, Number Four becomes the next one targeted for termination. With the help of his guardian, Henri (Timothy Olyphant), and Number Six (Teresa Palmer), Number Four learns to use his »

Morning Meme: Nom is Back to Spreading Lies, Paula Abdul Brings Beefcake, and was Jeff Bridges High at the Oscars?

23 December 2010 5:20 AM, PST | The Backlot | See recent The Backlot news »

A couple days ago, I mentioned that Modern Family might be doing something extraordinary with a plotline about Mitchell’s assistant. I put too much into that, because it’s going to be so much less than I hoped for. But really, that’s my fault, because what I imagined didn’t really fit the show.

To my Brits, I’m afraid that Rupert Murdoch is going to get to buy the rest of BSkyB, so you’re getting your own Fox News, complete with fake footage and a political agenda. Enjoy!

The Dallas Voice has named councilman Joel Burns Lgbt Person of the Year. Now can he win Texan of the Year?
