Ten Worst Movies of 2008

After going-on about creationism, the New World Order and other disagreeable people I know or have encountered, I’ve decided to do something just for entertainment value.

My favorite Movie reviewer on YouTube, Fury of the Flim Fan, has posted his choices for the ten worst Movies of 2008.

Part One (#10 to #6)

Part Two (#5 to #1)

It’s hard to imagine the contempt that some in Hollywood must feel for us when they release movies like these. Honestly, in these hard economic times, when people are struggling to make ends meet, how some directors and producers think that releasing any movie is better than releasing no movie at all.

But, I’m not letting others off the hook either.

The actors that starred in these films are partly to blame. They must have known how bad these movies were when they read the script. They could have refused to act in these films and not had their share of the blame for these abominations.

And speaking of scripts, after the writers went on strike, I was all in favor of them getting their fair share of the proceeds from the results of their work. I feel that the writers of these frakking pieces of excrement should be run out of the country and never allowed back in. Permanent exile from the USA should be their punishment for putting pen to paper and helping create these things.

Here is the actual list of Fury’s Ten Worst Films of 2008, in reverse order.
10. Babylon A.D.
9.   Hell Ride
8.   10,000 B.C.
7.   88 Minutes
6.   The Happening
5.   The Hottie & The Nottie
4.   In The Name Of The King
3.   Postal
2.   Meet the Spartans
1.   Disaster Movie

Actress Leelee Sobieski actually “starred” in two of these movies and was blamed for contributing to their degree of excrementitude (is that a word?), along with the unapologeticlly awful writing and directing. Leelee actually was nominated for various awards for her acting in other films, but the last time she won anything – a Young Star Award for Best Performance by a Young Actress in a Mini-Series/Made for TV Film for A Soldier’s Daughter Never Cries – was back in 1999 and the last time she was even nominated was back in 2002 – for a Golden Globe for Best Performance by an Actress in a Mini-Series or a Motion Picture Made for Television for Uprising – and she received numerous nominations for her starring role in Joan of Arc in 2000. But, in the intervening years, her standards for what movies she will appear in have slipped into low-budget, low-quality Bantha poodoo.

Jason Friedberg and Aaron Seltzer share the blame for two worst films of 2008. Both Fury and I agree that these two men must have a very low opinion of movie audiences in America when they’ve released two such horrible films. While I liked parts of Meet the Spartans, overall the movie took a joke and ran it into the ground numerous times and the gay jokes got tiresome after the first ten minutes. The follow-up Disaster Movie was the biggest disaster of 2008.

And that’s a fact!
