Everybody does year-end lists. So why not me?
Here’s mine. My 10 WORST movies of 2010!
It had to have been a film for which I had some sort of expectations going in but came out wondering why I gave up two hours of my life on this cinematic Creme de la-crap?
Barely missing my line-up of livid losers at # 11: SEX AND THE CITY 2. I wanted Sex in the CITY – not in the desert!
# 10: KILLERS—A bad chick-flick stays a bad chick-flick, with or without Katherine Heigl and Ashton Kutcher.
# 9: FASTER—Dawyne (The Rock) Johnson trying to act. More like acting miserably.
# 8: HOW DO YOU KNOW—Just because they’ve got a $50 million payroll here doesn’t mean beans when the story and chemistry don’t work. Sorry Reese. Sorry Owen. Sorry Paul. Sorry Jack. Sorry if you paid $10 to see it.
# 7: THE EXPENDABLES—Sly Stallone’s lame ressurection of Tinseltown’s Medicare crowd. Should’ve bought them all a bottle of little blue pills and called it a day.
# 6: CLASH OF THE TITANS—Seemed to me like a bad dinner theatre play with crappy 3-D to match.
# 5: THE TOURIST—Two of the world’s biggest stars (Depp and Jolie) sleepwalking through this one while collecting huge paychecks in the process.
# 4: THE AMERICAN—George Clooney and company fooling the public with the most misleading trailer and TV spots of the year.
# 3: WALL STREET 2: MONEY NEVER SLEEPS—(Unless it had to endure this sorry sequel.) Not enough ‘Gordon Gekko.’ Too much of everything else.
# 2; KNIGHT AND DAY—Tom Cruise and Cameron Diaz. Hell-O! THAT’s all they came up with? Totally underwhelming.
Which brings me to my choice for WORST FILM OF 2010. The # 1 Stinker. So bad I wouldn’t even wish it on members of Kansas City’s School Board OR the City Council!
McGRUBER—Will Forte proving once again to leave five-minute long SNL sketches on SNL. They just don’t stretch well into two-hour long movies.
Agree or disagree. That’s the way I (really) feel about them.
Just keep repeating: It’s Only a Movie…Only a Movie…Only a Movie. Take as MUCH as you can!
But, GOOD NEWS!
Look for my FAVORITE 10 of 2010 LATER this week!
