Massawyrm unleashes his 2010 very, very worst list!

Published at: Jan. 11, 2011, 11:59 p.m. CST by AICNStaff

Hola all. Massawyrm here.

Every year, I subject myself to a week of eye blistering, soul crushing, brain cell shredding torture as I plow through the very worst films of the year all in one go. Just about everything I hadn't yet seen with a notorious reputation gets screened here at the Casa de la Wyrm, whether it is going to make the list or not.  Truth is, only a small fraction of what I watch makes it in, but it lets me write my list in peace, confident that I saw everything truly awful and don't just shit out some lazy "These are the worst films I bothered to see this year and want to take some parting jabs at" list to tack on to my top 10. These are the 10 films that truly hurt, that pained me to watch all the way through.

 

10) Skyline. I always reserve my 10 spot for the very best-worst movie of the year, and this year, that movie is SKYLINE. The story of several douchebags, trapped in their swank, LA apartment during an alien invasion, this movie throws needless subplots at you in the vain hope of getting you to give a shit – when in truth it makes you hate its characters even more. Of course, that makes it all the better. If you cared, it wouldn’t be as funny. There is nothing clever or redeeming about SKYLINE except to say that it transcends its own awfulness and becomes funnier than it should be. The film goes from bad, to awful to fucking ridiculous and never, ever looks back. Beer plus SKYLINE equals an hour and a half that you probably won’t regret. Read my initial thoughts here.

 

9) Valentine's Day. This is what happens when an aging director calls in every favor he has left in hopes of making his own version of LOVE, ACTUALLY, but doesn’t actually square together solid enough of a script to get him the film he was hoping to make. When Ashton Kutcher is the very best thing about your movie, you have problems and boy howdy, this movie sure as shit has problems. It wants to be so much at once that it becomes a steady stream of nothing. The worst part of it is that you can see an honest to God movie swimming around in there, but one that is lost and drowning in a film that wants to surprise you with its twists rather than deliver simple, straight forward emotion. If this were a film about a florist on Valentine’s Day, jumping through hoops to save relationships or sidestep disasters, this could have been something. Instead, it’s about more characters than any sane person can pay attention to, all trying to hide something from you until the third act…with a florist. A total waste.

 

8) Resident Evil: Afterlife. I received more angry letters and tweets for not covering this wretched little mongrel than I’ve ever received for passing something up in the past. Apparently, some folks still feel the need to be warned off from the fourth bad film of a remarkably tainted franchise. But this one was the very worst of the series. Anderson desperately needs to take a cue from the Paul W.S Anderson that made DEATH RACE and stop using CG altogether if he can help it. This is a guy who needs to be making practical effect genre movies, not silly, CG festivals of farce that we can never, ever connect with. I don’t think I’ve ever given so little a shit about survivors of a zombie holocaust before, and I’ve seen BURIAL GROUND. Twice.

 

7) Vampires Suck. Friedberg. Seltzer. This is pretty much the same as every other shit-stain they've greased out over the last several years. To be fair, it is probably the best film they've ever made, if only because they spent more time imitating TWILIGHT than they did making fun of it. And on the upside, they hired an actress capable of mimicking every single one of Kristen Stewarts expressions (both of them). But it's still an unending run of low rent gay jokes, "remember that movie/TV show/cultural moment from 6 months ago" references, idiotic dance sequences, and whenever they can't think of anything else to do, somebody gets punched in the face inexplicably. These films are so lazy at this point that I can't even bring myself to get mad about them.

 

6) The Back-Up Plan. Oh dear Christ. Now we’re out of the bad films and into the utterly unwatchable ones. THE BACKUP PLAN is the stereotype of movies that do nothing but stereotype. It is so patently artificial and embarrassingly forced that it’s almost hard to believe that it is a real movie. But it is. And it was one of the most gut wrenching experiences I had of the year.

 

5) Gulliver’s Travels. Wow. Really? A Jack Black film made it onto my worst of the year list? Imagine my utter surprise. But GULLIVER’S TRAVELS isn’t just bad; it pushes the very boundaries of what is considered “juvenile.” The minute Gulliver gets to Lilliput, the first thing the movie does is pull down Gulliver’s pants and trips him so he can shove a Lilliputian up his ass. Moments later, the King is in mortal danger from a fire, with water nowhere in sight, so Gulliver must whip it out for King and country. And if gags like that weren’t enough, all it takes for Gulliver to woo the woman he’s been stalking for five years is to mention that he’s “had a crush” on her and that’s why he’s been skulking around her office so long. I don’t think this movie was simply written FOR Twelve-year-olds; I think it was actually written BY Twelve-year-olds.

 

4) My Soul to Take. The question isn’t “How could Wes Craven make such a bad movie?” He’s made terrible, terrible films before. CURSED anyone? The question here is whether or not this is the worst thing he’s ever made. It just might be. Dumped for obvious reasons and mostly ignored by everyone, this is one of those films that would have felt right at home in 1981, during the infamous glut of slasher horror knock offs, and still would have been completely forgotten. The film is about a schizophrenic killer named “The Ripper” (ooooh! Scaaarrrrry!) who may or may not have been killed on the same night as seven of the town’s teenage stereotypes were born. Now known chiefly for their shared birthday, this Jock, Slut, Religious fanatic, dork, token black guy, token goofy Asian guy and school weirdo must suddenly contend with the possible return of this killer on their 16th birthday. There are HUGE secrets that are obvious from the get go and silly plot twists that will just frustrate the living fuck out of you. This was the very definition of bad horror from a legendary director who continues to disappoint us time and again. Oh, and the ending will probably make you want to punch someone in the face for no other good reason.

 

3) Furry Vengeance. Holy fuck. Watching this back to back with MARMADUKE only served to show how the *exact same fucking story* can be told poorly and how it can be told in a manner that retroactively damages your very childhood. Where MARMADUKE tried its damndest to avoid butt-sniffing jokes and slipping in poo gags, FURRY VENGEANCE relishes them. In place of celebrity voice over, we get treated to visual thought bubbles over the heads of angry, sentient animals who are dead set on protecting their forest from developers – all while an out of shape Brendan Fraser mugs for the camera as he moronically wanders into every ridiculous Rube Goldberg trap these gleefully demonic woodland creatures set for him. It’s like watching ANTICHRIST for children, only you're the one that ejaculates blood.

And yet, nothing, I mean NOTHING, in the film can prepare you for how diabolically Lovecraftian the end credits are. I dare you to watch all the way through. Once you do, you will truly understand the nature of the elder gods.

 

 

Oh, Ken Jeong. Noooo.

 

2) The Last Airbender. Early last year, my wife and I decided to prepare for the release of THE LAST AIRBENDER by watching the original animated series AVATAR: THE LAST AIRBENDER. Within a few episodes, we were hooked and plowed through the series, all the way to the end, enjoying the hell out of it while trying to turn on as many people to its overall awesomeness as we could. 20 minutes into this shitstorm and my wife did something she’s never once done to me during a film in our 16 years together; she said “I’m ready to go now.”  Not only is THE LAST AIRBENDER disrespectful of the original material, it is also just a good old fashioned terrible movie. And it only got worse. Easily the worst thing Shyamalan has ever done, this film redefined how awful a studio adaptation could be. Usually, even when adults hate the shit out of something, they have to roll their eyes at their children who – lacking a fully developed sense of taste – like it despite itself. But when even eight year olds want to hatefuck your movie in the face because you can’t even pronounce the name of the characters right, you’ve accomplished something truly special. It takes a real clusterfuck to make a kids movie that even kids hate. Way to go M. Night.

 

1) Standing Ovation.  When word got out that Legendary director Stewart Raffill had once again returned to the chair, no one was quite sure what to expect. It's hard to find a director as notorious as the one behind such dispicable awfulness as MAC AND ME, MANNEQUIN 2: ON THE MOVE and ICE PIRATES. But his exploits beyond the early 90's all seemed to fall flat - never again quite able to achieve the level of bad one would expect from someone capable of this: 

 

Well, he's back, baby! And this time Raffill has really outdone himself. STANDING OVATION is nothing but one inexplicable nonsequitur after another. Just when you think you have a bead on what the fuck this movie is doing BAM! it's doing something else entirely. Worse still, it feels like a Disney Channel film made with a complete and utter lack of adult supervision. There are dance routines performed in this by 12 year old girls that will destroy your career if anyone walks in on you watching it alone.

 

You know what you didn't see? Scorpions. Mobsters. Gambling addiction. Oh, and the jaw dropping final 15 minutes of the film. This film is a complete and total mess and a goldmine for connesuirs of truly terrible cinema. I hear this thing tore the roof off of the New Beverly when it played and I have friends so deeply in love with the utter insanity of it all that they're pissed I've even considered it for my worst of list - let alone for the top spot. You've not seen anything quite like it - nor should you without alcohol, friends and a strap around your chin to keep your mouth closed.

And those, my friends, are the very worst films of the year.

Until next time,

Massawyrm

    by antonphd

    watching a big gut Brendan Fraser dancing to an elevator rendition of Insane in the Membrane felt like I was seeing a real life version of that practical joke that Joaquin Phoenix did for the mock-documentary he made where he acts like he has completely gone off the deep end... cause i couldn't believe that Brendan Fraser really made this much of a fool of himself in this much of a piece of shit movie.

    My In-Laws love shitty movies...

    by Keblar

    They like well made films too though and know the difference. SO the whole adoration with schlock -which goes back to stuff like Flesh-Gordon (R not X version) and Polish Vampire in Burbank - is intentional. Problem is, they've gone beyond loving a film for it's irony; being so bad that it comes back around again. It's gotten so out of hand that they no longer just buy the DVD out of the Bargain Bin, or torrent them and have a group of friends over, or go to some travesty of a midnight double feature at the dollar theater, they go and see these goddamn atrocities on opening weekend! When these kind of abortions actually make money in the theater, it ceases to possess ANY irony. Now you're just a sucker paying good money to lap up a shit sandwich and laugh about it, instead of spitting it out and being furious like you should be. When they get a group of colleagues together to go to stuff like "In the Name of the King" on opening night, I keep trying to tell them that they're violating the reason for enjoying bad films, but it's increasingly falling on deaf ears. As consumers, we usually get the movies we deserve, so be careful of the praise applied to garbage, lest producers/accountants misunderstand the entusiasm.

    THE LAST AIRBENDER is absolutely the most wretched pile of shit of the last 15 years. It's a staggeringly wretched sack of sputum based on a truly magnificent original series. M. Night Shyamalan should never be allowed to even fetch coffee on a movie set ever again.

    by Grimmjow Jeagerjaques

    I just saw this shit today. I don't think I've ever seen a movie in my life that was as meaningless as this one. By "meaningless" I mean nothing, NOTHING at all in this entire film mattered. You don't give a damn about the characters, you don't give a damn about the story. you don't give a damn about the sfx. Nothing. I'm not going to act like the original was a masterpiece, hell I haven't even seen it in a dog's age, but I'm willing to bet I'd like it better than this bullshit. Wooden acting by damn near everybody, no personality in most of the characters, Andromeda could've died for all I cared, it's not like Perseus actually gave a fuck about her. The Kraken was fucking useless. I would've been better off watching the trailers and having that be my full experience with this movie. The trailers were a lot better than the whole thing.

    Jonathan Swift

    by board shitlez

    is responsible for the urination to put out fire scene in the original novel, so as one of the few bits true to Gulliver's Travels should probably give Jack Black a break on that one.

    Oh yeah...I saw Birdemic: Shock and Terror this year at the Silent Theater in L.A. I can't recommend it enough and, at the same time, it probably belongs on this list. That said, IMDb gives it a 2008 date...so maybe it doesn't qualify?

    Haven't seen that film in years. Loved as a kid but i obviously dont recall much of it as i don't remember a large dance scene or a kid in a wheelchair who seems to be a main character.

    Fustfick - I have a bone to pick with you!

    by I_Love_LanaLang

    Fustfick said, "Until I remembered, under identical circumstances, falling in a pile of shit called Street Fighter: The Legend of Chun-Li." Clearly, you were either watching a different movie or your taste in film is utterly wretched. The incomparable and lovely Kristin Kreuk gave an amazing performance in that movie. She absolutely owned that role. She became the living and breathing personification of Chun-Li. I might add that the show Smallville has never been the same without the scene stealing talents of Ms. Kreuk. She WAS the reason for Smallville's succes. I will never, ever, forget your shameful post. At the very least, you owe a heartfelt apology to Ms. Kreuk and to her legions of fans who admire her acting brilliance.

  • Jan. 12, 2011, 4:02 a.m. CST

    i_love_lanalang

    by damned-dirty-ape

    Please tell me you are joking and just having a laugh. Legend of Chun-Lee was a stinking turd and Smallville has only improved since she left. Kreuk is beautiful to look at but only has a couple of expressions to give at any one time. She's either doing the same fixed smile or the confused look and thats it. Hell she even made Chuck boring in the few episodes she had, fair enough she didn't bring the state of depression she brought in smallville for her last years, but the episodes came to a halt when she was in them.

    by fettitular

    the only film i've seen on your list was The Last Airbender. And that was entirely intentional. Just wanted to see how truly fucking awful that flick was... And boy WAS IT! I've seen every M. Night Shyamalan flim to date, and they just continue to get worse and worse. Didn't think he could top the atrocity that was "The Happening", but he may have in Airbender! It really is sad, seeing as how brilliant his debut was. His 2nd wasn't too bad either... My 10 worst films of the year: 10. Hot Tub Time Machine 9. Shutter Island 8. Robin Hood 7. Kick-Ass 6. Daybreakers 5. Edge of Darkness 4. The Last Airbender 3. Youth In Revolt 2. Catfish 1. Predators I can defend any one of those awful to merely "dissapointing" flicks. So i can elaborate on them further, if it's necessary...

    Resident Evil

    by CimmerianWarrior

    I have loved all of those films. they are great movies because they have added style and matrix type bullit time Milla is Gorges. You cannot have a movie about dead people coming back to life and have an Oscar contender. What do people whant from resident evil that they aren't getting. It's a video game franchise. What is wrong with that you could fix?

  • Jan. 12, 2011, 4:52 a.m. CST

    And there are many bad movies that i chose not to see...

    by fettitular

    Including Scotty Pilgrim. I also skipped just about all of the terrible films that were obvious to anybody with a discernable eye for shit film ;-) So basically, all those films on my list had at least the POTENTIAL to be decent.

  • Jan. 12, 2011, 4:58 a.m. CST

    Jesus, cimmerianwarrior....

    by fettitular

    Is a decent PLOT or SCRIPT too much to ask for? How about an inspired cast or director? Treating the source material well? Making on an honest attempt to create a unique and engaging film experience?? The R.E. films didn't make an attempt to do ANY of this. If you had played the video games, you wouldn't be asking those questions either... The "films" payed no attention to the games' incredible ATMOSPHERE/TONE/AMBIANCE, etc... They turned them into boring "shoot 'em up's". They should have been straight horror. Check out the Romero script that's floating around the 'net. While not "perfect", it's definitely better than the shit films we were given, and it payed way more homage to the video games than the P.W.S. turds... Does that sorta answer your questions?

  • Jan. 12, 2011, 5:03 a.m. CST

    The R.E. films failed in each one of these categories:

    by fettitular

    Script/dialogue/pacing, casting, acting, score/soundtrack, direction/cinematography, set design, editing, style, atmosphere/tone, generation of tension/suspense/horror, etc... and those are just off the top of my head lol We aren't asking for CITIZEN KANE here, man... it's just that Anderson's films failed in every conceivable aspect of film-making, no matter WHAT genre or type of film you're making... Hell, check out 28 Days Later or even the Dawn of the Dead remake to see how a zombie flick COULD be done well... and you can add pretty much all of Romero's zombie flicks to the list of zombie films better than R.E. Too many to count!

    Predators

    by phifty2

    I...uhh...kind of liked it. It's starts great, has no tacked on bullshit sub plots, and delivers on the premise. The Fishburne character was stupid and not needed but other than that I liked it. All I wanted was a group of people trapped on a planet being hunted by aliens. I got that. To me it never devolved into parody, cliches(there are some but that comes with the territory with this type of film) or stupidity. Really don't get the hate. If this film had been made in the 70's(and I say this a lot what with everyone going apeshit over "grindhouse" type films) it would be a considered a classic.

    Wow-did I HATE RESIDENT EVIL-AFTERLIFE!

    by Randy_of_AFTimes

    Even barring my own decidedly-inappropriate hatred of Paul W.S. "Motherfucking!" Anderson, I've enjoyed most of the previous three RE movies. I know what they are and I accept them for it-bad ass chicks fighting zombies with guns and zombie-dog-fu. But this felt like a real slap in the face to the audience. As I watched, I got the sense of this being a half-baked crapp idea with no love or care put into it, made for fans of the previous films only because the producers know they'd go see it no matter what. Like I did. The opening sequence was the worst feeling of being a Boss level gone wrong. No suspense, no energy-just something to get through before the real story starts. Just, pardon the pun, dead and devoid of life Or maybe I just wanted to see more piles of dead Alices? I can't really bitch about the acting because, well, if there's nothing for you to do, there's no reason for you to act! Characters die off for no other reason than it had been a few minutes since we lost someone to the zombies. What a waste of Kim Coates, especially. I won't even go into the logic issues or the lame 3D use. Why bother? BUT WHAT THE FUCK WAS THAT AXEMAN ABOUT?!?! But what really pissed me off is that there's maybe thirty minutes of story stretched, padded and wrenched to a 90 minutes running time... AND sets up ANOTHER sequel?! You couldn't do it in THIS movie?! Really? REALLY?! Well, fuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuck you right back, Paul! Do us all a favor and stay home & fuck Milla and stay out of the multiplex! Limey fuck... Oh, and I got about 1:12 into the FURRY VENGEANCE end credits and had to bail.

    All that randy said above, and the fact that "videogame fanatic" Paul WS Anderson would include the afore mentioned Axman, just because it was a character in Resident Evil 5. As well as the "Blade 2" dogs. He's playing the game and thinks, "Hey, this is cool. I should include it in the movie." Whether it makes a lick of sense or not. Just plug shit in.

    The only thing good about RE Afterlife..

    by Stalkeye

    ..was the decent use of Cameron's 3D technology.(liked the blood splatter effect as well as the raindrops during the opening credits.)Other than that, the movie was more disappointing than the previous RE films and what's more insulting to fans of the videogames is Weasel Shit Anderson trying to recreate the fight scene from the RE5 Game. fuck, Wesker in this film looks too much like val kilmer and as far as i'm concerned they might as well have hired val since he's not doing anything major nowadays. Also might I add, what the fuck was with the injoke of Wentworth's character being held inside a prison? Chris Redfield is more of a cooler protagonist than fucking Alice in Zombieland. Then there's Boris Kodjie doing a Jordan leap to save a plane from falling off the building.I mean Whatdefuck?!? The post credits ending just dumb, with Jill Valentine prancing like sme dumb supermodel inside a troop transport helicopter. Fuck, even Kim Coates' role was wasted and the guy is brilliant in sons of anarchy.

    by Dark_deco_fan

    After your comment I watched the first part of Ice Pirates again. (Thank you Youtube) While I agree its not great, It does have Bruce Vilanch after all. It is not as bad as Mac and Me. Every once in a while a director makes a decent film. He might have just had a GREAT editor. Example: I hate Joel Schumacher. But he did make a film I enjoy watching called Flawless. Its not great but enjoyable. I'm still waiting for that one watchable Uwe Ball film. Ice Pirates falls into this category. So I, after a partial re-viewing of Ice Pirates. I still disagree with you. I will also chip in 5 buck for castration surgery. I will not help pay for treatment of your space herpes.

    Airbender

    by Ravyn

    The only good thing i can say about Airbender is that it looked beautiful. The sets, the costumes, Appa and Momo, all looked great. I wasn't pleased with the casting choices, but they could have been worse. hopefully Noah Ringer can act given a good script and director, (we'll find out in Cowboys vs. Aliens) so I won't fault him yet, but at least they could have followed the story more faithfully.

    "Anderson is a shitty writer, but a solid journeyman genre director - which is why EH is his best, because he didn't write it. The intense hatred of him on this site is undeserved.." No Turd, it's well deserved.First of all Anderson orginally wanted the first RE Movie to have a PG-13 rating because it would bring in a bigger audience i.e. box office draw.His AVP was a huge commercial and critical flop yet it had a PG-13 rating and also might I add, a lame ass story and silly direction. (That laughable shot in which Latham and The Pred run off like batman and robin really showcased Paul Wanker Stain Anderson's "great" talents.) His only saving grace would be Event Horizon and to a lesser extent, Mortal Kombat. Having him helm a film based on a venerable videogame property like Resident Evil is almost akin to schumacher making a Batman film... ...oh wait.

    Having seen nearly all of the movies you listed (in theaters!), I can assure you that The Nutcracker in 3D & Cielito Lindo were far, far, far worse than any of them. Truly two of the worst viewing experiences I've ever had. IMDb lists Cielito Lindo as having come out in 2007. However, it only made it to Los Angeles in 2010.

    RE films transcend criticism.

    by blackwood

    They are loved by millions, for both ironic and non-ironic reasons. Personally, I dig that each plays out like a puffed-up B-movie serial story. It has gotten a bit worse as the franchise has gone one, but the RE films are, to me, about ridiculous endings that find some way to keep the story going... and horrendously disappointing beginnings, where the 'promise' of the previous chapter is completely and utterly betrayed. AFTERLIFE was the worst of these, taking the super-cool concept of an army of Alices, lead but the psionic superpowered Alpha Alice, and throwing them away in a ten minute lab shoot-out -- and then taking away super Alice's super powers five minutes later, so we can't even delight in her still-improbable survivability and ninja skills. BUT the 3D was used well and that big pyramid-head rip-off was pretty cool. I am fond of the films. I don't dispute RE:A's place on this list. I will probably go see the next one and continue to be part of the problem.

    The movie that annoyed me the most this year

    by Keith

    Shutter Island. Fucking awful. HILARIOUSLY awful. *** SPOILERS IF YOU'RE AN IDIOT *** I was simultaneously amused and offended that the film simply led up to the "twist" that any rational viewer could have seen coming after 20 minutes. I was hoping for some kind of double-twist: sure, we made it LOOK really obviously as though it was going to end one way, but - check this out! - we're doing something different. But no. Everything went exactly down the default route. I mean, it was The Cabinet of Dr Caligari, for fuck's sake! One of the oldest and most obvious plots of all time! DiCaprio is clearly deranged, and he's investigating a case at a mental asylum. What on EARTH might be happening here, eh? Total fucking garbage. Although it made me laugh out loud at its badness, so I guess it gets a few points for entertainment value.

What boggles my mind is bringing up Wright.

    "Appa was reduced to a flying Taxi"

    by Nasty In The Pasty

    Um...that's pretty much what he IS in the animated series...just a way for the characters to traverse great distances without having to walk everywhere (kind of like "beaming up" on Star Trek, which neatly avoided the need to have a landing sequence in every single episode). He doesn't have a personality, he just stands around and grunts whenever he's not carrying the characters anywhere. Personally, I find the frothing hatred aimed at Last Airbender somewhat overwrought. It's certainly a poor adaptation of the (excellent) source material -- it's glum, humorless, badly-miscast, and the incessant mispronounciation of the characters' names is downright insulting -- but it also has fine visual effects (Appa and Momo looked fantastic), cinematography, a superb score, and at least one sequence (the "Blue Devil" prison break scene) that appreciably apes the kinetic action sequences of the show. It's a C+ movie at worst, and FAR from the worst movie Shymalan has ever made ("Be scientific, douchebag...!").

    And Turd...

    If i appear to be "obsessed" with you, as you claim... it's only in the same manner that everyone else here is obsessed with Braindrain. He's simply an enigma of stupidity that just cannot be ignored! The obsession, as you call it, comes from that burning desire that we humans feel to explain the unexplainable... to rationalize the irrational, etc. So yes, i am intrigued by you the same way a psychologist is intrigued by a bizarre new patient they are introduced to... Cheers!

    Hey, Bounty Hunter really wasn't that bad.

    by Jaka

    Granted, I saw it for free, which can help. Certainly wasn't a "best of" movie, and it was as predictable as all those movies are. But I didn't hate the characters on the screen and I actually laughed a couple times.

    Ice Pirates...

    by Jaka

    ...RULES! It's one of those things that I saw when I young, before the internet, so I didn't realize until years later that there was a whole group of people who loved that film even though it was awful. Maybe BECAUSE it was awful, but still fun.

    Mass suprised a Jack Black movie made his worst list?

    by 77AD

    Did he see Year One? Jack Black is just one on a long list of hollywood comedic actors that need to take a hiatus and reexamine their stale shit.

    No, you did not answer my questions. A "decent plot, script" etc. is all opinion. There simply is no way to make Citizen Kane out of dead people eating live people. It cannot be done. To imply otherwise is ridiculous. Zombie movies are always going to be silly because the entire premise is silly. Nothing can be done about it. If it was/were able to be done, they've had 30 plus years to do it and no one has done it yet. Plot, Dead people walk and eat live people, and can only die (again) by being shot in the head or decapitated". I ask you, what difference does a head shot make when the blood has stopped flowing and the brain is already dead anyway? There is absolutely no way possible to make an award winning zombie film. Resident evil is an awesome franchise. Games and movies both.

    Your reading comprehension skills are simply TERRIBLE. Go read a book.... or 2, and get back to me. You didn't address a single point i made in my previous posts, as you keep harping on the same inane points that you made before... Like the citizen kane reference for example. Go re-read my post again, man... i clearly stated that it DOESN'T HAVE to be citizen kane. As i said before, go read the George Romero script that's floating around the internet and you'll see what i mean. You'll get a taste for what a halfway decent Res Evil film would look like. Capiche?

    Braindrain... *AHEM* RYAN...

    by fettitular

    How many times do i have to tell you.... I DIDN'T SEE SCOTTY FUCKING PILGRIM. And without seeing it, i can only imagine just how awful it really is... What makes you keep thinking that i enjoy that P.O.S.?? This is just bizarre, man... your memory is just as shitty as your taste in film, your grammar and your coherency. Sum'bitch! Oh and i hated Kick-Ass as well... That's another flick you keep accusing me of liking. So go write some of this shit down, so i don't have to keep correcting you... and get off that silly "hipster" shit, 'cause i couldn't be further from that asinine sub-culture of shitheads. Have a nice day :-)

    Holy shit, "Standing Ovation" looks fucking AWESOME

    Fine i'll be the first to say it... that chick (yeah, you know which one i'm talking about...) is gonna be fuckin' SMOKING in a couple of years. And this is coming from a perfectly normal, healthy, adult male. Heh.

    And the funny thing is about movies 7-10...

    by Shan

    They all made a profit, from Skyline (a decent pile) to Resident Evil 4 (ridiculous amounts in spite of the weakest script of the 4).

    Well.....

    by riggs_and_murtaghs_love_child

    I can see we have the usual intelligent rational discussions in here. The retards in this place have just become more and more stupid as time has gone on. Trolls are not even trolls anymore, they are stupid, nonsensical fools who think they are being entertaining, when they are just showing the world how utterly irrelevant they really are. No wonder this site has gone into the toilet.

    Um...wtf? Mannequin 2 and Ice Pirates are AMAZING.

    Hollywood Montrose is the greatest character EVER!!!!

    by Crimson King

    Seriously, though, I'm sure they're horrible as actual movies, but seeing as how I saw them both a gazillion times as a kid, I can't help but love those movies.

    damned-dirty-ape: I find your post to be outrageous!!

    by I_Love_LanaLang

    damned-dirty-ape said: "Please tell me you are joking and just having a laugh. Legend of Chun-Lee was a stinking turd and Smallville has only improved since she left." I sure as hell was NOT joking! I would never joke about the incomparable Kristin Kreuk. I find your remarks to be highly offensive, inaccurate, and possessing no redeeming qualities at all. I think it's obvious to anyone with a scintilla of movie knowledge that the incredible acting ability of Kristin Kreuk lifted the Legend of Chun-Li from an average film to one of the best of the year. It's certainly on my Top 5 list and I'm sure it rates very high with other people who enjoy watching an actress at the top of her craft. As for Smallville, it has steadily deteriorated into an unwatchable mess since the departure of Ms. Kreuk. Where once there was a beautiful femme fatale that garnered our attention, there are now wholely uninteresting beasts such as Chloe, Tess Mercer, and the agonizingly annoying Lois Lane. Kristin Kreuk MADE that show must see tv!! As for the pathetic and achingly boring show Chuck, the ONLY episodes that I could bear were the ones where Ms. Kreuk displayed her incredible range and talent as an actress. She OWNED every scene she was in! I'm not surprised that they got rid of her as the other actors were most definitely jealous and in awe of her prodigious talent. The same thing happened on Smallville. Don't you dare ever insult Ms. Kreuk again. Don't even think about it. I will not stand for that kind of behavior. Do you understand?!
