The Very Very Worst Movies of 2010

Oh yeah, it's the worst movies of 2011 list! I'm actually shocked by what ended up at #1. It shoulda been Alice in Wonderland! Or maybe I'm Still Here? Or, if you're Rex Reed… Inception! (For true!) But A. O. Scott makes a great point: the most bad and evil movie of 2010? It was a documentary.

Alice in Wonderland was terrible. But you know what was fun? Casting former Gawker editors in the various roles. (This is because my viewing companion and I both were like, "Um, Alice is being played by Emily Gould?")

Cherette and Moylan are Tweedledee and Tweedledum and Moe is definitely Dormouse.

On a totally unrelated note, why didn't we ever get Lindy West to write something for the Awl? That SATC2 review remains one of the greatest middle fingers of all time in film criticism and I once ran over Manohla Dargis' cat.

I suppose I should be happy that I haven't seen any of those.

I have seen 'Iron Man 2' though and that was a right stinker.

Is the existence of all of these movies the reason that The Social Network was praised so much? 'Cause it wasn't, like, a bad movie, but… Seriously, with the praise?

Yes, it was that good, and a week's worth of articles from this blog trying to convince me it isn't won't change my mind.

I don't agree with Rex Reed's assessment of Winter's Bone but I'm sure glad it was him who made that assessment!

What, no Robin Hood? That was some seriously shitty shit right there.

Also: Alice in Wonderland was really really disappointing, and like Robin Hood, had actually very little at all to do with the original stories and their themes beyond the character names and some vague plot points. But there were times where it, at the very least, looked nice.

I'd say 'Alice' was Tim Burton jumping the shark… if that hadn't already happened with 'Big Fish.'

'Big Fish' being a shark, or something.
