I was putting together my Worst 10 of 2008 list.
Here are the ten that I came up with:
10. Baby Mama 09. Meet the Browns 08. The Happening 07. War Inc. 06. 27 Dresses 05. Where in the World is Osama Bin Laden? 04. Semi-Pro 03. Jumper 02. Doomsday 01. 88 Minutes
Those are the worst movies I've seen this year.
But am I qualified to make a Worst Of list?

Let me watch those and get back to you.

Take City of Ember out of there NOW.

elgringo said...

Sorry, can't take it out until I watch it.

J.D. said...

It's there just because it flopped, isn't it? Because I don't think it had the reviews to indicate "worst of the year."


elgringo said...

Haven't seen it.
Have no idea how it did money-wise.
Just thought it didn't look very good.
Very good chance I'm wrong.
If I ever see it, I'll let you know.

I guess we'll have to watch the Veggie Tales movie now. Damn. (yesssss!)

11 Word Movie Reviews/Son of Double Feature said...

This reminds me of that one Family Guy where Peter names all the awful Fox shows that had to be canceled for them to get back on the air.

If I had to nominate one to add to the list, I'd add The Hottie and The Nottie.

God, what a bad year...

Jason Soto said...

I just watched Baby Mama. What was wrong with that? As for the, yeah too many to both defend and agree with. Go head on wit yer bad self!

elgringo said...

Jason Soto -- Baby Mama just disappointed me. I hadn't seen any other movies that deserved to take the #10 spot.

Son of Double Feature -- The Hottie and The Nottie was on the list.

Thomas Pluck said...

Yeah, I was gonna give you flack for Baby Mama and Doomsday, which aren't great, but also aren't deserving of being on a worst list. Then again when you have to pick 10, I can't fault you for not liking either for personal reasons.

The Happening was a huge disappointment, but not unexpected from the guy who made The Village. It's fine for an update on the Terrible B Science Fiction Movie from the '50s, but really should have been better.

For example Dan in Real Life would be on my list for 2007.

Daniel said...

Haha, that's scary.

Bedtime Stories is surprisingly fun. Stop-Loss is possibly one of the BEST movies of the year (!). 21 was horribly disappointing. Role Models was alright.

Yeah, I think you're pretty right. This is ridiculous. Make it an annual post.

Fletch said...

What's the significance of the bolded ones?

I would suggest taking out:

* Definitely, Maybe - one of the best-reviewed rom-coms of the year. I know that doesn't mean much in and of itself, but I saw it as well and give it a thumbs up.

* Role Models - how dare you. One of my most enjoyed comedies this year.

* The Spiderwick Chronicles - I didn't love it by any means, but it was decent for a kiddie flick.
