    Info The 100 Worst Movies of 2008

    Some pretty amusing review comments

    100: [Only registered and activated users can see links. ]
    "The most eagerly hated movie in America is a tongue-in-cheek homage to Paris Hilton that has drawn nothing but poisonous reviews. On IMDb it has been voted the worst film ever made" - James Christopher

    99: [Only registered and activated users can see links. ]
    "Everything great about the series has been lost in transition. The fizz has gone, the fun looks fake and the laughs are few" - Cosmo Landesman
    98: [Only registered and activated users can see links. ]
    "Millions of dollars of computer software at their disposal and the best they can come up with is something that looks like angry Plasticine" - Wendy Ide

    97: [Only registered and activated users can see links. ]
    "A movie ruthlessly designed for an audience of comic nerds who suspect that they are destined for greater things" - Kevin Maher
    96: [Only registered and activated users can see links. ]
    "Wong Kar Wai’s first English-language film, and I, for one, hope it will be his last. Something got lost in the translation: his talent" - Cosmo Landesman
    95: [Only registered and activated users can see links. ]
    "A criminal waste of Colin Firth – arguably the most charming man in British cinema – in a role that requires him to shuffle around looking like an unmade bed" - Wendy Ide

    94: [Only registered and activated users can see links. ]
    "Seth Rogen is an amiable and chubby clown, and quite possibly the most unconvincing romantic hero since Adam Sandler. The most soppy and unsexy 18-certificate skin-flick ever made" - James Christopher

    93: [Only registered and activated users can see links. ]
    "Miley Cyrus hails from the Hilary Duff school of wholesome, squeaky-clean candy pop. She comes across as another (fake) blonde singing vacuous fluff, complete with pushy stage mom" - Saadeya Shamsuddin
    92: [Only registered and activated users can see links. ]
    "Imagine The Da Vinci Code remade by a philosophy student, set mostly in Oxford bedsits starring Elijah Wood in the Tom Hanks role, and featuring the world’s most unerotic sex scene" - Kevin Maher
    91: [Only registered and activated users can see links. ]
    "Harmony Korine's bizarre film about a group of celebrity impersonators who hole up in a Scottish castle: gives The Cottage a respectable run for its money in terms of making no sense at all" - James Christopher
    90: [Only registered and activated users can see links. ]
    "It’s just not very good; it’s an average episode of the TV series stretched to feature length" - Wendy Ide
    89: [Only registered and activated users can see links. ]
    "If you’re someone who can never have enough Hello Kitty merchandise, this might be just the film for you, but I would have found it hard to bear even without the winsome music that dribbles through every scene" - Edward Porter
    88: [Only registered and activated users can see links. ]
    "While I hate to start chucking around charges of nepotism, I find it hard to believe Gwyneth Paltrow would have signed up were it not written and directed by her little brother" - Wendy Ide
    87: [Only registered and activated users can see links. ]
    "Oh dear. You have to love George Clooney or American football a lot to want to see this one" - Cosmo Landesman
    86: [Only registered and activated users can see links. ]
    "The realism here doesn't bear much scrutiny, unless the London of 1971 was populated exclusively by decent criminals, bent coppers, topless barmaids and sinister Whitehall toffs in S&M knocking shops" - Kevin Maher

    85: [Only registered and activated users can see links. ]
    "Christina Ricci dons a prosthetic pig's nose as a woman bearing the brunt of her family's curse. The curse can be broken only when Ricci sacks the agent advising her to take films like this" - Wendy Ide
    84: [Only registered and activated users can see links. ]
    "I can’t begin to describe how creepy this futuristic movie is. The famous actors look more plastic than the sets and the plot is a video game" - James Christopher
    83: [Only registered and activated users can see links. ]
    "Ultimately, the accents are excruciating, the class observations simplistic (everyone is either posh or poor) and the sense of place muddled at best" - Kevin Maher
    82: [Only registered and activated users can see links. ]
    "Talky, tediously overlong and crammed with kitsch, postcard-pretty country scenery; culminates in a cross-dressing pseudo-lesbian clinch" - Wendy Ide

    81: [Only registered and activated users can see links. ]
    "Looks like an early Heath Robinson experiment. The sets are held together by bits of string, and the costumes are supplied by Oxfam" - James Christopher

    80: [Only registered and activated users can see links. ]
    "Don't expect Roland Emmerich's film to make much sense, historically, geographically or logically. This is an effects-driven action flick that happens to be wearing a leather loincloth and brandishing a spear" - Wendy Ide
    79: [Only registered and activated users can see links. ]
    "Demi Moore still boasts the best voice in the business (an alluring mix of sandpaper on granite, with a dash of honey), but as an actor she is here frequently upstaged by the magnificent foyer of the Grand Theatre in Luxembourg" - Kevin Maher
    78: [Only registered and activated users can see links. ]
    "A corny, dumb and sentimental tale of revenge by a Superdad terminator who rampages through Paris, wasting bad guys" - Cosmo Landesman

    75: [Only registered and activated users can see links. ]
    "Ricky Gervais gets his first leading role in a Hollywood film, but the film’s premise is high-concept Hollywood at its creakiest" - Wendy Ide

    74: [Only registered and activated users can see links. ]
    "Shamelessly manipulative but too short and sketchy to provide a good wallow: has to make do with Diane Lane's sympathetic presence and Richard Gere's squinty emoting" - Tom Charity

    73: [Only registered and activated users can see links. ]
    "Hoary horror devices are done to death: mirrors reveal the killer’s presence; terrified girls lose their clothes during chase scenes, then walk backwards into peril" - Wendy Ide
    72: [Only registered and activated users can see links. ]
    "Precisely halfway through a plot development of such absurdity causes the whole thing to go down with all hands." - Peter Whittle

    "Kevin Spacey blackjack movie that gets lost in confused moralising about the need for hard work and honesty while simultaneously celebrating the allure of Las Vegas and the quick, dishonest buck" - Kevin Maher
    70: [Only registered and activated users can see links. ]
    "The horror is toothily familiar. Amazingly, not one of the (living) characters has ever seen a zombie movie" - James Christopher

    69: [Only registered and activated users can see links. ]
    "If you are 18 and always stoned out of your brain: seek help. Should you see this film, you will think it really funny, but then your brain is like scrambled egg. Come back Cheech and Chong, all is forgiven!" - Cosmo Landesman
    68: [Only registered and activated users can see links. ]
    "Call me old-fashioned if you will, but isn’t the point of a romantic comedy for the audience to fall in love a little bit – if not with the protagonists, then at least with the idea of their relationship?" - Wendy Ide
    67: [Only registered and activated users can see links. ]
    "The melodrama is so damp and overwrought it’s hard to care about these old ghosts" - James Christopher

    "Russell Brand plays a louche rock star as to the manner born, but Judd Apatow's production is just forgettable" - Wendy Ide

    "A flat, ponderous and at times unintentionally funny horror. Yes, I know it’s meant to be some sort of comment on our narcissistic consumer society, but it’s not even scary" - Cosmo Landesman
    64: [Only registered and activated users can see links. ]
    "David Mamet intends this to have the irony-free spirit of a Rocky film, but he comes close to the stuff of a frat-pack sports-movie parody" - Edward Porter

    "It’s probably inch perfect, but from this distance it looks like a rejected chapter from the Naked Gun franchise, and infinitely more wooden" - James Christopher
    62: [Only registered and activated users can see links. ]
    "There’s not a moment in the film that feels honest and uncontrived. Zeta-Jones looks more like a well-fed Persian cat than a starving music-hall artiste" - Wendy Ide

    61: [Only registered and activated users can see links. ]
    "A cast of D-list actors on a brief respite from the dole? Proof that there are few things more tedious than other people's drug experiences" - Wendy Ide

    "Combines awe-inspiring photography with some of the most inane drivel about life-changing experiences and profound bonds with Nature you’re ever likely to hear" - Wendy Ide
    59: [Only registered and activated users can see links. ]
    "Bimbo with heart of gold triumphs over snobbery and stereotypes - a standard teen-frat film, but from a female point of view. Frankly, this is one unfunny, vapid bunny I’d like to boil" - Cosmo Landesman

    58: [Only registered and activated users can see links. ]
    "Beneath its frothy and “comic” surface lies a cynical, smug and morally imbecilic film that thinks people who exchange sex for money and expensive clothes are rather cute and amusing" - Edward Porter
    57: [Only registered and activated users can see links. ]
    "The Sixth Sense twists are as remarkable as pasteurised cheese. The shrieking fright moments break every EU rule about decibel levels" - James Christopher
    56: [Only registered and activated users can see links. ]
    "The latest romantic comedy which posits that a woman is somehow incomplete until she has a ring on her finger and a billowing meringue of a dress" - Wendy Ide

    "The teaming together of De Niro and Pacino for some serious screen time together certainly is an event — one you must miss. The best thing that can be said about this film is that you get to see two living legends fall on their faces for the price of one" - Cosmo Landesman

    "It could be the first great mainstream art experiment. Or, perhaps, since the opening word of dialogue is “Shit!”, the jokes are mostly about it, and the characters are regularly covered in it, it is more likely that the movie itself is just, well..." - Kevin Maher

    There's one or two that certainly don't belong in that list, Pineapple Express was piss funny, especially the fight scenes and I enjoyed David Mamet's Redbelt too.

    Other than that though I tend to agree.

    "To justify the quite horrendous level of violence, the film dehumanises the Burmese soldiers to the extent that barely a scene goes by without one of them raping or murdering" - Wendy Ide
    Wouldn't be much of a Rambo film without it. Obviously a lesbian.

    No country for old men - I liked it. What was wrong with it? Too much violence? Read above.

    Outpost was alright too.

    Dark Knight should be in that list in place of Pineapple express.

    What was it that confused you, Leo?

    On another note, I seem to be in the minority regarding Pineapple Express. I thought it was quite tedious and unfunny. And AMO, you really do hate the Batman franchise don't you. Dark Knight was rather mega.

    The list is drawn from varied sources at the end of the day. You can find a negative review for any film really. Landesman for instance, writes for The Sunday Times. He hates everything made after 1960. It's not at all a serious list of the worst of the year as far as I can see. Maybe the top ten perhaps. They have Meet the Spartans and Disaster Movie nailed at 1 and 2, but, at the end of the day, what else could have possibly been worse than them? I've actually seen very few of the others. I didn't even know they'd adapted Choke for the screen or remade the Thai horror 'Shutter', for example.

    in my opinion they got a few wrong,

    97: Wanted (a big daft turn off your brain movie it was great especially ms jolies botty)
    94: Zack and Miri Make a Porno (thought this was brilliant)
    77: Jumper ( same as wanted a big daft turn off your brain movie it was great)
    71: 21 (seemed like a huge episode of las vegas i enjoyed it)
    69: Pineapple Express (hillarious especially when baked lol)
    63: Get Smart (thought it was brilliant)
    59: The House Bunny (whats not to like?)
    48: Street Kings (i enjoyed this it reminded me of the one with ethan hawk and denzel washington that i cant remember the name of)
    46: Untraceable (felt like a james patterson book and i thought it was good)
    41: Fools Gold (kate hudson in a teeny tiny bikini whats not to like?)
    12: Eagle Eye (seemed a bit like die hard 4.0 and i liked that too)
    11: Rambo (saw this with a couple of m8s and it was as good as the 1st)

    I found it ok, not 'worst film' material anyway. The Bank Job was good IMO as was Taken, Vantage Point and several others. Teeth was my worst film of this year although I havn't seen most of the films in this list.
