hey Morphites,

I was putzing around the net, when I came across
MOVIEFONE and it had listed the worst films of the year.
I decided to share it with everyone here so they could
see if their "favorite" made the list. here is the
link:

www.insidemovies.moviefone.com/2009/12/23/worst-films-of-2009

here's the list. comments are welcome.

10. I Love You, Beth Cooper
9. Couples Retreat
8. Whiteout
7. Land of the Lost
6. The Ugly Truth
5. Transformers 2
4. Old Dogs
3. Year One
2. All About Steve
1. Miss March

the only two on this list I saw were Transformers and
Land of the Lost and I actually liked them. anyhoo,
anyone have any comments on these films or are there
films that should've been added to the list?

I saw Whiteout and although it was fairly predictable I liked it, I definitely would not put this one on the worst list.

I wonder who assembled that list, I find funny that most of those movies are comedy.

Anyway, aside from Year One, I think there were worst movies that should be in that top 10 than those.

i agree. i actually wonder why Transformers 2 is even on this list. maybe the plot itself was bad..but for overall smashmouth action..it makes my top 10 list.

I agree with you, I liked transformers 2. I don't know the criteria those people use to make a worst movies list.

Miss March was god awful, but I actually laughed a lot during Land of the Lost. but that could also be that it was late and I had a friend over with a goofy laugh who thought it was hilarious.

Street Fighter The Legend of Chun-Li : was horrid

Dragonball : We tossed popcorn at the screen. Talk about nothing to do with the original!

Obsessed : An awful unofficial remake of Fatal Attraction. I was furious about this one.

Wolverine : had to be the WORST comic movie made. They just raped every character they could...again...and again...and again. But I wasn't surprised after X-Men 3

GI Joe: Also had not much to do with the original and the action was really boring cause there was no story and I did care why it was happening.

I really have to say It's difficult to pick my favorite but I really thought Inglorious Bastards was FANTASTIC!!! one of the best of '09,
along with The Watchmen, Avatar, Star Trek, Princess and the Frog... actually there were a lot of good ones too.

This is what I thought at least.

Transformers 2 was probably put up there because of the humans (ie:Shia's parents,they were terrible in the movie, the government was portrayed as more alien than the Autobots, and Shia was a whiny crybaby throughout most of the movie. In fact, the only human who was any good in the movie besides the military was Megan Fox.).
Bruno could have gone up there too, as well as the Reader,Crank 2,
Dragonball Evolution and Next Day Air.

Like I said. A bad plot did not make T2 a bad movie. Over the top effects and action can make even the worst scripted and acted movie worth seeing again.

Sorry to desagree Reed but I liked those movies, Wolverine it's not the best but I think it's better than X3 and GI JOE it's a good popcorn movie, the story isn't that bad.

hey,

I also thought GI Joe was fun. Oscar winner? no.
educational serious film? no. fun way to shut your
brain off for two hours and enjoy. absolutely. I
might agree about Bruno. I didn't mind the first
ten minutes or so, but after an hour, it was like
"Okay. we get the joke." and I left. as for T2 (not
the Arnold film)it was also good popcorn as was X3
and Wolverine. (a side note about Transformers-Megan
is reportedly going to buy it in the third film.)
I think Ryan Reynolds was a great Deadpool and the
guy who was Gambit was amusing too.

ok, I could agree GI Joe was popcorn, but I wouldn't spend the money on it again.
Yeah, I liked Ryan Reynolds as Dead-Pool but I have no idea how they are going to do a movie for the character with out making it a prequel that will be inaccurate because those were not his powers or his background.
As for Gambit, the actor was ok, I think they could have picked a better one and told him to do a real Cajun accent next time. He was too baby faced.
I've always loved Wolverine and Gambit but just cause they're poplular doesn't make them the focus of the Marvel universe.
bacically to me Hollywood is saying the audiences are too stupid to handle more than one concept at a time (Pheonix and the Shi-ar) and that they are going to throw favorite characters at us with no true relation to the actual characters or stories.
I understand things have to be changed, but not everything.

and I never saw Bruno...thought it looked mind numbingly stupid.

You gotta remember, Redd, that even though these characaters have been around for decades, most mainstream people don't even know that they still make comic books anymore [Most folks think that the they just keep reprinting the original stories from the past and don't make new stories up every month and have for decades.] so this is their first exposure to these characters and that's what script writers thinks gives them carte blanche to write them however they see fit. Sure, it's what makes guys like me, who've read all these stories, point out the inaccuracies in the character's origins, battles and love lives but the majority of the audience? They're a clean slate so, just like children, you can tell them anything you want and they'll buy it.

Mf,
I would say most people just don't care rather then are wrong. They probably have never even thought about it. For example, I do not care about baseball. Not even a little bit. I barely know the rules of the game, I do not know a single player that is currently playing the games name. I do not know any team names for sure. I just do not care. When someone tries to talk baseball to me, I do not know A single thing about it and don't want to know anything about it. So when they tell me Jimmy James has a rbi of some weird number, I just do not care and I tell the person I don't watch or like baseball. I think a lot of people are like that about comics. It doesn't interest them at all so they just do not care, now most people probably are not as blunt as me and will try to be friendly and talk to you about them, this will never end well

If they don't care about comics, then why are they going to see movies about them? Can't just be because they have kids. Or is it that they're action movie fans that don't give half a crap about plot and just want to see stuff get blown up? [That explains why Transformers 2 made $400 million perfectly.)

Plus don't forget the millions of dollars hollywood spends on advertisement to make sure people go see the movies.
I know people that have never read a comic that are fans of superhero movies.

Prime example right here! Aside from a couple of Deadpool graphic novels I happened to come across and the Dark Horse AvP series, I don't read comics, yet I love comic-book movies.

But does that give the writers complete card blanche to strip away decades of history just for the sake of a dollar? Think about the creative energy it took to build the live that these fictional character have. If I were the creator of such fictional histories I would want to sue for copywrite infringement reguardless of the fact that the studio had to buy said copywrite. I understand some of the changes that are made because science has advanced since some of those characters were created. But come on, putting a character in a story that should have only been a baby when wolverine got the adamantium. That is just down write wrong.

well I personally do not think a movie has to be a copy of the comic to be good. Take a look at the dark knight. I have read a lot of batman comics over the years and none of them were even close to this movie, They didn't even try to make it a copy of the comic. They took the characters and made a new story. I have no problem with this at all and really enjoyed the movie.
Now hollywood has done really good jobs like the dark knight and really bad jobs like catwoman. the thing that is important is the characters personality IMHO. I really don't care much. Much like the problem with star trek until they rebooted it is that trying to please the fan boys on a property that has been around with thousands of backstories and make everything fit into continualty while introducing it to the mass audence is an impossibility. That and some things work great on the page but do not work on screen.

you are correct, concerning movies versus the comic book. in fact carbon copy is not what I was talking about. when doing a movie it should be something new. it makes things interesting. In the case of batman and dark knight, the movie writers at least kept with the spirit of the characters and every thing appeared logical and coherent. Even with the new Star trek reboot (here I am a fanboy) they took the spirit of everything that is trek and reworked it for a new generation but all the elements are still there. with wolverine too many things seem out of place. too many things seem forced and out of sequence. just a thought.
