Top 5 Movies You Missed in 2010

View Adam Love's Profile

By Adam Love - 07/20/10 at 07:14 PM CT

2010 has admittedly been a slow movie year. Painfully slow. Big movies have either been a disappointment or “as expected”. Diamonds in the rough have been, well, non-existent. This blog is your chance to catch 5 movies you didn’t see this year because your local critics suck, your phone’s movie app lead you astray, or the production company should fire their marketing team. I’ve left out some obvious independent films (Hubble 3D, Babies, and Oceans) because I know some of us take great pride in not having seen a single movie at the Oscars. If you have a chance you should check them out though. Here are your 5 movies in no particular order.

#1 – Jonah Hex
Domestic Gross: $10,201,178

Everyone seemed to dismiss this movie from the start. Comic book movies are getting old. Megan Fox is becoming so intolerable to women I’m pretty sure they are actively withholding sex from men who still want to see her. Whatever the case may be, no one saw this film. I am here to tell you it wasn’t bad. Ladies, Megan Fox plays a hooker. If she is going to be good at playing anything it’s going to be this role right? Men, she’s in love with a dude way uglier than you will ever be… finally. You should overlook the fact that Hex is based on a comic book. You’ve never heard of the comic book anyway. Go see it for what it is, a no brains action film, I promise you’ll enjoy it.

#2 – Splice
Domestic Gross: $16,930,048

This movie is screwed up. Really screwed up. In a good way though… if there is such a thing. I want to take a shower every time I spend more than two minutes thinking about it. Watch the trailer so you know the basics and check it out. Parts of this movie are simply jaw dropping.

#3 – Death at a Funeral
Domestic Gross: $42,739,347

While 42 million is nothing to be ashamed of, this movie was very funny and deserves much more attention. Its cast speaks for itself (Martin Lawrence, Chris Rock, Danny Glover, Tracy Morgan, Luke Wilson, the list goes on) and it needs to be treated differently from the Tyler Perry genius (see: repetitive crap) that has starred a primarily African American cast the last few years.

#4 – The Crazies
Domestic Gross: $39,123,589

Plenty of people loved the preview for this film but it lacked the true originality and big Hollywood names to make any real bank. Mark my words, anyone looking for the next original zombie movie will be found wanting for the rest of their days. Zombie romance, zombie comedy, zombie thriller, zombie horror… it’s all been played out and damn near perfected. The Crazies has consistent action and plot that is reminiscent of 28 Days Later. If you like one, you will like the other. Don’t judge it for something it isn’t trying to be. If you like zombie movies at all you owe it to the genre to see this one anyway. Why? Because while you busy comparing this movie to other zombie movies you thought were better and had a similar plot… Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson as The Tooth Fairy absolutely decimated every movie on this list with box office earnings. We can’t let Hollywood think this is acceptable. It’s embarrassing.

#5 – From Paris with Love
Domestic Gross: $24,077,225

The movie which may be perpetually known as “that weird movie that John Travolta was bald in”. No one actually saw that movie… apparently they just saw the trailer. Again, this is a no brainer film but it was a good mix of action and comedy. Check out the trailer and see if it’s your style. While it might be the one movie I recommend the least of these 5, it’s still very worthy of Netflix/Blockbuster queue or RedBox purchase.
