And to make things interesting, here's:
The worst/most disappointing movies of 2010 and why:
1. The American:
Watch Clooney assemble a gun, eat food, and use the Italian payphone! If that hadn't enticed you already, feel the edge-of-your-seat gripping action of Clooney...RIDING A VESPA! Oh film makers these days. Will they ever learn?
................................Pictured: incorrect use of weapons and Clooney.........................
2. Tron: Legacy:
Apparently not. And do we really need more half-assed reboots/remakes/delayed sequels? Disney seems to think so.
3. Due Date:
Zack Galifianakis mastrubates in a car and Robert Downey Jr. is visibly disgusted by the directors attempt to cash in on The Hangov-wait I mean- oh, never mind.
4. The A-Team:
It's like they spent all the money on actors and explosions but forgot the rest.
5. The Expendables:
6. Wall Street 2: Money Never Sleeps:
Crappy, happy, sappy, crappy, nappy, lacky plotty shitty endy baddy scrippy.
Boof does a decent jobby though.
7. In A Better World (Hævnen)
Only recognized because it's the work of Susanne Bier in the form of a moral lesson that relies on decent actors (the adults, the child actors are terrible) and cheaply implemented visuals.
