Worst Movies of 2011

I've been wanting to create a Best of 2011 list, but I'm behind on my movies and there's are some high-profile films I've yet to see. However, I saw plenty of bad movies in 2011 so I thought I could make a list of my least favorite movies of the year. Granted, there are some poorly reviewed movies I never saw (such as anything with Nicolas Cage) but I usually don't see a movie I know I wouldn't like.

5. The Green Hornet. Everyone I know liked this movie, I didn't. I just can't stand a movie where Seth Rogen just goofs around for the entire movie, probably because I've seen it too many times. I thought the sidekick was a bad actor, and the whole story was just lame. I suppose if Rogen amuses you you'd like this movie, but I don't care for his acting style and thus thought this movie was terrible.

4. Battle: Los Angeles. Just terrible. I didn't like a single thing about this movie - the characters, the plot, and in the end I didn't care if the aliens won. Actually, I don't even know if that's how it ended, I fell asleep 30 minutes before the end and never cared enough to find out what happened.

3. Your Highness. Wow, this movie was bad. The trailers made it look pretty funny but those were the only funny parts. I have a feeling this is a movie that looked like a good idea on paper but ended up being a huge disappointment.

2. Bad Teacher. I don't mind movies where the villain is the main character, but you have to make the villain somewhat likeable, like in Bad Santa. There's nothing to like about Cameron Diaz's character here, so sitting back and seeing her win time and time again gets frustrating.

And the worst movie of 2011 is...

1. Red Riding Hood. I supposed it was inevitable. The live action/CGI Alice in Wonderland was a huge success so it's time to trot out all sorts of fairy tales with the same treatment (such as with the upcoming Snow White films). Here we get a "dark" take on Little Red Riding Hood that's so funny - unintentionally - that the movie is just terrible. I'm still laughing about that dance/orgy that happens in the beginning.

And that's my list of bad movies of 2011...coming soon, best of 2011.

Here is how I got through "Battle: Los Angeles": I started to watch it, seriously wanting to see it, but I fell asleep after 35 minutes. I woke up with only 20 to the end. I know how it started and how it ended. I'm glad I missed all the action/non-action in the middle.

Everyone keeps saying how awful "Green Lantern" turned out to be this summer. I admit that it was not perfect, but I could watch it again and be entertained. I was hoping for a sequel, but public ridicule about the movie was so harsh that it might not happen. But I am a huge fan of superhero movies. I agree with the Seth Rogen statement. Either you are a fan, or not so much. I'm not so much. I sat down to watch "Funny People" and was offended. I did not like it one bit. Critics loved "50-50", I'm reluctant to see it because it has Rogen in it, and it seems eerily similar to "Funny People". Rogen's title character of Green Hornet was so clueless and he refused to develop into a hero. Chudnofsky was worth watching, but little else in that movie.

I thought the ending to "Cowboys & Aliens" was ridiculous! Daniel Craig did the best he could with his role, but the movie as a whole was terrible. I would like to see a movie based on Craigs character alone...without the aliens, Harrison Ford, or Paul Dano.

It is sad to see what Nicolas Cage has done with his career. I looks as if Jim Carrey is taking acting lessons from Cage. Only time will tell, but "Battleship" and the sequel to "Clash of the Titans" has me thinking the same about Liam Neeson.

If I know a movie is going to be bad I tend to avoid it. I did see Green Lantern and Cowboys & Aliens in the theater though, and didn't mind them. They weren't great, but I was entertained.

Good thing you haven't seen Season of the Witch yet - It's hard to imagine it can be better than any of the movies on your list (though out of them, the only one I've seen this year is Battle: Los Angeles - not quite bottom five, but pretty darn close). The worst movie of the year I have seen is The Ward - a supposed horror film that is just laughably terrible. High profile terrible films: Green Lantern and Cowboys & Aliens - neither worked for me and I'm kind of mad I paid full price at the theater for them.
