Biggest disappointments of 2010

1. Splice (2009)
I hated this film. I hate the way it was deceptively marketed, I hate the way many critics have tried to compare it to Cronenberg, and I hate how unbelievably stupid the entire script was.

2. Solitary Man (2009)
This one induced severe nausea. I left the theater knowing full well there were only five minutes remaining. I have no doubt that they were five minutes better spent.

3. The Last Exorcism (2010)
Surprisingly good build up and strong performances followed by a shockingly poor finish. Also, much shorter on thrills than I expected.

4. Cyrus (2010)
Oh how I expected to love this film. Oh how I was wrong.

5. Hot Tub Time Machine (2010)
I didn't like last year's The Hangover and guess what? I didn't like this too well either.

6. A Nightmare on Elm Street (2010)
Ok, so deep down I knew this was going to suck, but I dared to hope that this remake would be different. And you know what? It was. It wasn't utterly awful. But it wasn't good either.

7. Scott Pilgrim vs. the World (2010)
With titles like Shawn of the Dead, and the amazing "Hot Fuzz" to this promising director's credit, I figured on enjoying this one. And I did. But only through a few sequences, and only modestly.

8. She's Out of My League (2010)
I thought it might be funny and I thought it might be charming. It wasn't either of those things.

9. Dinner for Schmucks (2010)
Why did I go see this in the theater?
Xanadon't's rating:



I generally try to avoid bad movies. But sometimes I ignore my better judgement. Other times films that are billed to be great turn out to be crap. Here's what went wrong so far.

I actually like the part of Splice where the scientist sink into depravity. Speaking of Cronenberg if the film had gone down a "Dead Ringers" path... I would have loved the film. But no... *sigh* creature goes on murderous rampage and falls into a whole world of blockbuster cliches.

luckily i didn't see any of them yet ^^

What kind of douchebaggery is this? Scott Pilgrim was brilliantly done!
Posted: 3 years, 3 months ago at Jan 8 18:10
I dug Splice, but then I have no idea how it was marketed or what any of the critics had to say about it. My girlfriend wanted to see it so I went into it blindly, which almost always earns a more positive response from me. Loved Scott Pilgrim too for its video game meets comic book presentation...really creative I thought. And Cyrus I would've enjoyed more had they been able to find a competent camera operator & dropped the silly deal where characters were speaking over scenes where they weren't.

The rest of these I have no urge to see, especially Nightmare.

I liked Splice, I liked how weird it actually was. And thought A Nightmare on Elm Street was better then I dared to hope for. Even though it's just slightly managed to get a 6/10 from me.

But I agree with you on The Last Exorcism and Scott Pilgrim! While, I enjoyed Scott Pilgrim, I think it could have been so much better! And The Last Exorcism was all build up, and nothing more.

Never expected anything from Hot Tub Time Machine, so not dissapointet that I didn't care for it.

Not seen the rest.

Personally agree with all except Scott Pilgrim Vs. The World. Good list, though.
