Can't believe I paid $9 for . . . Worst movie you saw in 2010.

What's the most thoroughly loathesome film you saw this year?


I didn't see as many movies as I usually do, and while there most certainly were much worse films released this year, the one that pissed me off the most was The A Team. Any time I see a movie where it looks like the actors are having 10 times more fun than I am, I find it hard to keep watching. I could go on and on about the miserable acting, terrible script and Neeson's embarassing wig. But the thing I HATED the most was that the editing looked like it was done by someone going through some pretty serious heroin withdrawal. I've never seen such a huge production so frantically edited to the point where even the on-screen action was complete nonsense.

I hear "mess" as an overused term for describing subpar films, but in this instance, it's the nicest thing I can think of to say about The A Team.

I think I only saw about 4 or 5 movies at best, but among them was Piranha 3D. Terrible movie. Stupid ending. It was only slightly redeemed by Christopher Lloyd and just the overall gruesome-ness of it. My friends and I pretty much laughed through the whole thing.

I'm fairly sure that was the point of Piranha 3D.

Splice - it wasn't awful, but not worth the $9. the whole sex scene was quite disturbing as well.

i probably ended up paying 9 bucks to see hot tub time machine. because even though i got it out of the red box vending machine, it sat in my car at least a week before i remembered to turn it in. that movie sucked ass.

sherlock holmes was the only thing i went to see in theaters, and i'm not 100% sure if that was january or last year's december at this point.

The Other Guys with Will Ferrell that was one of the stupidest movies ever made. The husband loved it but for me all it did was reaffirm why I refuse to see any movie with Will Ferrell in it. Even Mark Whalberg who is a decent actor couldn't save this one.

I didn't see any movies I hated in the theater. I'm sure I saw a few clunkers via Netflix, but nothing I felt like I wasted money on, since Netflix is still worth my $20 a month, despite a few bad ones in the bunch.

Any bad movies I watched were Netflix rentals or streams, but in that case I either turned them off or I was watching and laughing at how bad they were with friends. I enjoyed all the movies I saw in theaters this year.

Also, The Other Guys was the first time I laughed at Will Ferrell in a movie since Zoolander, it was perfectly entertaining as part of a drive-in double feature.

Tough to say, I've seen so many

It would probably be among-Burlesque, Leap Year (nice Ireland scenery) or Dinner For Schmucks (nice Paul Rudd scenery).

Oh, there it is - thanks for the reminder!

Leap Year was AWFUL.

I'd have to think about it.

But Jesus, $9 movies, that's a dream from about 20 years ago. Try $14. Or $17 for IMAX.

$9 is a matinee around these parts. Which is painful to even type.

My dad paid for The A-Team, so I guess that doesn't count. I saw Youth in Revolt at a free screening.

I think The Wolfman may win out, but I'd call that film more problematic and unfulfilling and could've been good than an out-and-out disaster.
