The other day I asked you to throw down your favorite film from 2009 in the comments section, and as of this writing just about 40 of you have participated. While you continue naming your favorites of the year, it’s now time to let us know which films you didn’t like. Which films did you walk out on, and which films do you wish you could get a refund for?
There were some real stinky flicks this year, too, like I Love You, Beth Cooper, All About Steve, Paul Blart: Mall Cop, Dance Flick and, yes, Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen. But maybe those weren’t the most appalling and, instead, you want to rant against Avatar, New Moon or Where the Wild Things Are. Hey, we just want to know which film you liked the least in 2009 and why.
Now that I've seen it on DVD, I'm changing my vote to The Informant. Horrible, had to return it without finishing.
hello people!!!! im guessing that the hannah montana movie was sooooo bad that everone just plum forgot about it huh?
worst of last year!!!!
btw i liked gi joe,new moon, mall cop was mediocre at best, funny people was disappointing,the uninvited didnt make sense at all!!, jonas brothers concert..need i say more, knowing was really bad!, i didnt like obsessed, loved wolverine and star trek!, okkk hated g-force ( wat a bad idea), oh and the recent saw movie ( number 236), the fourth kind and paranormal activity were both entertaining, two words... ninja assasin,
worst movie by far mall cop!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! loved observe and report because it was like mall cop on crack!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I gotta say transformers and avatar are probably the worst movies this year. SOOOOO BAAADD.
OK, first worst movie of the year was Jennifers Body. Second to everyone dogging New Moon: The Twilight Saga, you get or you don't. Millions of females (including adult) can't be wrong, take the time to read the books and maybe you'll get it if you don't I feel sorry for you. And since when are the books exactly like themove? And i'm sure if they had a budget of 300 million it would be better.
As far as most overrated movie (not worst movie), I'd have to say...Avatar. Just like Titanic was overrated, too. Seriously, how many of you out there are watching Titanic over and over again? I'd bet the same thing 10 years from now for Avatar. Cameron's best movie still to date is Aliens. It's got it all. Great effects for the time, tight story, well-edited and paced, and much better characters than Avatar. Plus, I've seen Dances with Wolves. Now I've seen Dances with Wolves in space. I give full props to the visual effects and the world that was created. Highly original, yes. But the story? And the characters? Pfff. Note to James Cameron: feel free to bounce your ideas around with some writers.
Based on disappointment, I'd go with District 9 (Disappointment 9?). I couldn't believe how ridiculous it got at the end after I had started to care so much. It was slow to start but I stuck with it and it started to grow on me and get more appealing, emotionally and dramatically, but then it just got carried away with the action to the point that the "realistic" nature and feel of it (in other words, if there were aliens on earth and this were happening, could it happen like this?) just got completely lost and ended so sad and tepid. I love action movies and sci-fi, as well as the dramas (I'm a big fan of G.I. Joe and Avatar now) but the story has to deliver what it promised. This one didn't.
Wolverine was possibly the worst movie of all-time, nevermind this year.
Lots of disappointments & couldabeenbetters... but most movies at least have something going for em... my pick for worst movie is Whiteout. No redeeming qualities. Best part is the landscape video during the credits. Seriously.
the box definitely and transformers was good btw
The worst movie of the year was Where The Wild Things Are? That movie was horrible. When I read the book back when I was in first grade, I enjoyed entering the world of the wild things. But this movie made me extremely depressed and in no ways reminded me of being a first grader. The movie was also filled with a lot of plot holes. And the part where Carol rips off Douglas's arm was very uncalled for. I really don't know what Spike Jonze was thinking when he made this film, but all I know was he adapted a great children's book into a crappy not-so-much-for-children movie.
I absolutely loved District 9! :D So heartfelt.
Is Boondock Saints 2 out already?? I loved 1st one, and was looking forward to the 2nd. Maybe you should have refreshed your memory by watching the first flick again before seeing the second.
Just a thought. "Knowing" SUCKED!!
District 9 was the worst movie of 2009. The acting was horrible as was the premise. Couldn't wait for the ending. My husband wanted to leave after the first 30 minutes. I thought it would get better but it did not.
I thought that one of the worst movies was Paranormal Activity. I was so excited to see it; everyone talked about how scary it was. It was not scary at all. Footprints in some flour, or whatever it was, is not scary! It absolutely sucked. Most of it was talking and the chick got on my nerves.
ALL you Transformers 2 Haters out ther - grow a brain and learn to understand the art of flashback plot development... the story and plot were there but I guess it was too advanced for you to comprehend.
The worst movie I think has to be Transformers 2. While yes, the action scenes were good and all, the story made no sense and the movie was just WAYYY too long. I was checking my watch every 15 minutes to see whenever, and if ever, it was gonna be over.
Knowing was horrible. Nicholas Cage cannot act and he was at his worst in this movie,Also Paranormal Activity was just stupid. Anyone that got scared at that is moronic.
worst kid's movie was Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs. Unappealing animation and sort a gross plot. My son enjoyed it so I kept my groans to myself. The SHORT children's book is great, but this extended and strange take on the book was disappointing.
District Nine (F) was horrible! Just little shrimp costumes running around, really, really dumb. I loved Vampires Assitant (A-) I've already preordered the DVD. I loved AVATAR; Glorius Bastards! New Moon was good (ok); can't wait to see Breaking Dawn. GI Joe awful! Can't wait to see the new Kill Bill 3 movie;transformers horrible! Chi Lee horrible...whats the deal with these directors? I agree that "ALL About Steve" was horrible F-. AVATAR was A+; and Julia was OK (C).
How can you hate on district nine, probably one of the coolest movies I've ever seen. I thought the CG aliens looked amazing, especially for the budget. It was an original sci-fi movie with an interesting plot, and some crazy-awesome action sequences, not for those with weak stomachs, but I'd put it in my top ten movies of the year, I don't know how you could love Avatar and not love this movie as well, I loved them both and thought they were similar in a lot of ways.
Personally, I think compared with the train wreck that Twilight was, New Moon was pretty good. It at least stuck to the book. Speaking on that level, I would have to say that Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince was the worst...at least adaption wise. If you can look at it standing alone, it was fantastic. But, as someone who has read at loved the books, it was definitely a stinker.
As a whole though, I HATED a Christmas Carol. The 3-D didn't live up to the hype and I don't think Disney had any business turning a beloved Christmas classic into a three ring circus, though I did love Jim Carrey in it, they definitely win the award for most mangling a book.
I really did not like up un the air with george clooney. It was not really the best movie to show. Of course I would not see the vampire wolf one eather, just not my kind of movies
Probably the most disappointing movie is "Funny People". Its not the worst but not as good as i anticipated. The worst movie by far probably was "Street Fighter: The Legend of Chun-Li". VG films usually suck just like "Hitman" & "Max Payne" did. No surprise there. The best films include Avatar, Sherlock Holmes, District 9, Inglourious Basterds, The Hangover, Wolverine, Public Enemies, among others.
