2011 Films - Worst 10

Sort by: Showing 20 items

Dishonorable mentions.

Films that nearly made the list.

10. Hostel: Part III (2011)
I did consider watching I and II again before I took on this sequel, however I figured out that they probably wouldn't be connected anyway. And they weren't exactly masterpieces either, so I guess it was a smart choice. Now, I knew most of this film were going to suck. Yet, I did have some hopes for some good nudity and some sweet kills and grotesque violence. Well, oh bugger, I was mistaken.



Because there is only one kill that I think belongs into this series. One kill. Out of five or six or so. That's not good enough. Even the nudity ain't on a high enough level to justify this film. There might be possibly one girl that I would approve, but I'm severely disappointed. I'm not going to bother in mentioning anything else, as you know it's crap. The only redeeming qualities it SHOULD have were the violence and nudity. It didn't.

9. Shark Night 3D (2011)
This film was absolutely no fun. Odd, the director managed to create a fun snake film, so it's strange that he didn't create an equally funny shark film. But I guess that's partly where the problem lies. Bigger budget, bigger studio and a more known director than what most of these shark film have. So they obviously had to get so many as possible to see it, and created a shark film with a PG-13 rating to cash in on kids. The result is poorly made snorefest.



The PG-13 rating basically means that they can't show us any good gore or nudity. None of the things we really want from a shark film. Which is (unless you're Spielberg) scantily clothed teenagers being eaten by sharks in a violent and gory way. We don't get that from this film.

8. The Moth Diaries (2011)
The biggest issue with The Moth Diaries is that it's so boring it could be considered a cure for insomnia. It runs for only approximately 82 minutes, but it manages to feel twice as long. It's a teen-emo horror film that deals with vampires, sexuality, anorexia and anxiety. Yet it's never able to handle those subjects, resulting in this dull film.



It does attempt to create a mysterious, icy and chilling atmosphere, loaded with lesbian eroticism and suspense, but it falls short on achieving that. Shooting your film through drab blue filters, while having your actresses wander around looking strange and freaking out don't necessarily create that required atmosphere. What we're left with here is rote, tired stuff that feels just as unimaginative as it's dreadfully boring.

7. Sleeping Beauty (2011)
The only good thing in this film is that Emily Browning is naked for the most part of it. But even that does eventually get less interesting in this film that is just NOT interesting in any way whatsoever. It's a film that is so desperately trying to be important and to make a statement about something, but whatever it is trying to say, it fails in doing so. Resulting in one of the worst films of last year, and a film that has good chances of curing insomnia.



Not to mention that Julia Leigh, the director, has an incredibly boring vision. There is nothing in this film. There is no creativity in it. There is nothing to think about when it's over. There is nothing to think about when it's going on. Nothing. It offers nothing. There are just some naked girls, old men talking random bullshit, and weak attempts to create something meaningful. I hate it when films tries to do that, but fails miserably.

6. Twixt (2011)
It's hard to imagine that the same director that created The Godfather-trilogy also helmed this ludicrous piece of dirt. This is in every shape and form an awful film. Coppola dishes up some neat visuals, but that's the only positive thing that can be said about this stinker.



It's not even close to being scary or suspenseful, it's completely lacking in mood and atmosphere and the plot is so silly that one might think that Coppola is just trolling us. Add to that some weak acting, and you got yourself a really bad film that ought to be burned.

5. Gone (2011)
Swedish thriller that's incredibly close too get on my "hate"-list. This is easily one of the most generic, unoriginal, cheap and soulless films I've seen in a while. I was so bored. So bored! It's just a rehash of ideas from other, better films, which is thrown together to create this suspenseless mess. If this was an American film, it would have been massacred by everyone.



The film does the dreadful choice of showing the killer early. It's some old man, with some sick, perverted ideas. He doesn't really come of as any real threat actually, it's just that the two characters who are on the run are as stupid as two ducks. Then the film tries to include some kind of story on the killer, but it leads absolutely no where? Why bring in his family if you're not going to take it any further? The same thing goes for the lead character. They hint to some kind of suicide in the family, but why not take it any further? What kind of character development is this? It's just incredibly lazy writing!

The only reason this staying clear from the lowest possible score is because they introduce to a German, who provides some of the few interesting moments this film has to offer.

4. Munger Road (2011)
Low-budgeted "less-is-more" horror/mystery that attempted to be something much more serious and better than what it actually is. This is a film that features something that's a very typical horror film plot, but instead of just creating fun schlock out of it, they've decided to take the film way too much seriously.




Which is why it fails so miserably. The plot is presumably based on some sort of local thingy, and it's clear that the filmmakers are intrigued by this. But the film is just awfully written. The dialogue and characters are horrendous, even by low-budget horror standards. The pacing is terrible, and the film feels like it's way too long. Which itself is rather funny, as it didn't even conclude the story. The film ends with a cliffhanger and a "To be continued" title card, as we're left guessing who the killer is. Who would really be interested in seeing a sequel to this?

But Munger Road's biggest crime is that it's completely suspense-and-scare free. For a film that treats itself so seriously, one should be able to expect some suspense, but because the film is so poorly shot, with bad lightening, there's no suspense or tension to be found. Due to the "less-is-more" approach, none of the kills happen on-screen. Which is a major sin in a horror film.

3. I Don't Know How She Does It (2011)
This is a film that is so horrible that I wanted to break up with my girlfriend for making me sit through this enormous pile of garbage. (Not really, I love her. Hey, even she didn't like. Which is a good thing!) This is a film that's so painful to watch that it hurts my soul.



It's not funny, it reminds me too much of Sex and the City, it's viewpoints of females "struggles through each day" is ridiculously outdated. It's a failure in every way. And Sarah Jessica Parker is the worst thing that has happened in the history of cinema.

2. Hjelp, vi er russ (2011)
Norwegian attempt to create a sex comedy. This is one of the worst films I've ever seen in my entire life. This film is an embarrassment for everyone involved and for Norwegian film industry, and Norwegians in general. I'm embarrassed that my country would produce this shit. It's a completely soulless, empty, humourless and dire film.



The script is naturally rotten, the clichés are all over the place and the film's message is distasteful. I could possibly overlook those things to a certain degree if the film were funny in one way or another, but it's not. None of the jokes hit, the references are dreadful and comedic timing is absolutely absent. You haven't seen shit until you've seen this film.

1. Battle of Los Angeles (2011)
Be careful when you buy DVD's, so you don't end up buying the wrong film. I did, and noticed to late. I could have gone back to the store and returned it, but instead I decided to give it a go. Well, it's one of the worst films I've ever seen.



It's dreadful in every way. Terrible effects, outrageous acting and dialogue, lame story and absolutely zero entertainment. Apparently this film is made by some studio who makes crap, and names the title similar to Hollywood blockbusters, in hope that some will buy the wrong film. I'm ashamed to say that I fell for it.

I agree with all of your choices. Hostel Part III was a complete let down, although I "do" think that the first WAS a masterpiece and the second was pretty good.
If the studio named Battle of Los Angeles that title in hopes that others would make the mistake and buy it, that is very, very sad, and I'm sorry that you fell into their little trap, but lets face it, Battle LA wasn't very good neither.

Got my vote!

Continuing to avoid all 10 of these. :)
Posted: 2 years, 2 months ago at Feb 24 1:00
Fortunately, I've only seen Your Highness out of all these - I didn't think it was terrible, but I was depressed by it very frequently, which is definitely NOT the effect a comedy should have on anyone, haha.
Posted: 2 years, 1 month ago at Feb 27 20:04
The only I liked is Priest, not an awesome movie but I think it is a decent " distraction ".
About the others, I'm gonna avoid it and Battle LA blockbuster too. ^^'
Posted: 2 years, 1 month ago at Feb 28 5:06
I watched The Rite and I liked it, but, yeah, mainly because of Anthony Hopkins. The Smurfs doesn't appeal to me, and Battle of Los Angeles was just a shame...
Posted: 2 years, 1 month ago at Mar 15 11:13
The Rite was sucked, even with Hopkins Sr. . And thanks about the comments of 'Priest' and 'The Smurfs', I fuckingly hate them.
Posted: 2 years, 1 month ago at Mar 20 15:12
Update!

The dreadful Priest have been knocked out of the list, because of the inclusion of Sleeping Beauty. Instead, Priest is now sitting safely at "Films that nearly made the list", where it knocked out the mediocre Water for Elephants!

Update!

The terrible The Smurfs have been knocked out of the list, because of the inclusion of Forsvunnen. Instead, The Smurfs is now sitting safely at "Films that nearly made the list", where it knocked out the mediocre Green Lantern!

I see I'm late to the party. I'm actually glad, because I didn't have to see Priest here. It was a good film and I would love to see a sequel, though they are rarely as good as the original. I don't see anything about the film to dislike.

As for those listed here...I completely agree.
