The Very Best/Worst Of 2010

First a big THANK YOU to everyone who ever visited my blog or left a comment here
I know, I don't offer anything special on my blog; just writing a few sentences in bad English about the movies I watch - still it makes me kinda happy that at least a few people are interested in what I'm doing here.

And now, it's time to present you my best/worst lists from 2010!
- note to the US readers: in Europe many of the 2009-movies were not released until this year -

Top 5 WORST HORROR MOVIES 2010

5. TRAIN (2008)
Sooo stupid.
4. ZOMBIES OF MASS DESTRUCTION (2009)
Sooo unfunny.
3. DARK HOUSE (2009)
Sooo lousy.
2. THE GRAVES (2010)
Sooo pointless.
1. SHOCK LABYRINTH 3D (2010)
One of the worst movies of all time.






BIGGEST HORROR DISAPPOINTMENTS 2010

5. ROAD TRAIN (2010)
The trailer looked so fucking brilliant but unfortunately this ended up as an annoying lamefest.
4. ALTITUDE (2010)
Same here: terrific trailer but eventually an awful film
3. [REC] 2 (2009)
Part 1 outstanding, Part 2 is just mediocre.
2. FROZEN (2010)
The trailers, the poster artwork, the plot - everything about Frozen is amazing, except for Frozen itself.
1. A NIGHTMARE ON ELM STREET (2010)
A massive insult to every single Krueger-fan.






Top 5 BEST NON-HORROR MOVIES 2010

5. KNIGHT AND DAY
(2010)












Big surprise: not a big fan of Cruise and Diaz, but "Knight and Day" is so funny, so entertaining, so action-packed, so fast-paced, it's incredible!

4.THE A-TEAM
(2010)













I hated the original series but, to my surprise, this modern adaptation is simply stunning: brilliant acting, great humor and an insane amount of breathtaking action.

3. WALL STREET: MONEY NEVER SLEEPS
(2010)












I fucking adore Michael Douglas, I fucking love the original "Wall Street" - and, yeah, I fucking enjoyed this terrific sequel!

2. THE SOCIAL NETWORK
(2010)












Fincher has outdone himself. A stunning masterpiece - only "Zodiac" is better.

1. INCEPTION
(2010)












Simply outstanding: one of the greatest movies ever made. Kubrick would be proud of Nolan.






Top 3 WORST NON-HORROR MOVIES 2010

3. DUE DATE (2010)
So unbelievably unfunny and retarded, it hurts.
2. THE EXPENDABLES (2010)
Every single Chuck Norris and Steven Seagal movie from the last 20 years isbetter than this awful piece of crap.
1. TITANIC II (2010)
I knew that this would be horrendous, but I actually didn't expected it to be That horrendous.

  1. I've been so busy catching up on movies I haven't seen that I never got around to any of the new ones! Argh! But I did see some on your list - Sorority Row (eh, okay brainless fun but overall forgettable), Triangle (a mindfuck, but still brilliantly done), The Human Centipede (concept movie at its best), and The Descent 2 (not as amazing as the first one but still had some great scenes). Hmm, Zombies of Mass Destruction is in my queue. Looks like I can probably just skip it.

  2. SORORITY ROW and THE COLLECTOR would have topped my worst list, couldnt stand either of them, but they were beat out by the genuinely awful NoES remake!

  3. @Michele: ZOMD is just stupid. Tries hard to be as funny as Shaun or Zombieland but fails all the time. The zombie action is also pretty disappointing. I definitely don't recommend it.

    @Carl: haha, I know that these 2 movies are hated. Well, can't help it, I enjoyed them both.
    ROW reminded me of all the glorious end-of-the-90s-slashers
    and COLLECTOR was just incredibly tense and impressive.

    At least we both don't like Freddy 2.0.

  4. There was a Titanic II? What the hell?

    But I'm really glad I didn't see the Human Centipede, and I agree that Paranormal Activity 2 was lame. But putting it in the number 15 spot is accurate.

  5. Very interesting list. Glad to see somebody else besides me saw "Exam", which I found to be surprisingly good. Also, "Daybreakers" deserves some more recognition--it was actually a really good flick. Still got to see "Paranormal Activity 2", though if you say that it's about as great as the first one, I'll definitely love it.

    Zum Schluss will ich dir noch ein Frohes Neues Jahr wunschen. Ist ein bisschen spat fur das, aber besser spat als nie, ne?

    I don't tell a lot of people, but I can actually speak German fluently. :)
