A very underwhelming sequel to an underwhelming franchise re-make.
WORST #9 - Dark Shadows
A lukewarm film with a few laughs and thrills but it's still the same Burton formula we've seen over the past few films. Goth film making mixed with Depp being there.
WORST # 8 - Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance
A "chained" down sequel to the dismal 2007 movie. They finally got the look of Ghost Rider down but ultimately it's not the thrill ride you're looking for.
WORST #7 - Hope Springs
You want to hear about old people having "relational" problems for 2 hours? THIS IS YOUR MOVIE! A depressing look at elder relationships wrapped in a supposed "comedy" film.
WORST #6 - Joyful Noise
With musical numbers that go nowhere, horrible editing, and sometimes bad acting; this films was one of the first bad films to hit the theaters in 2012.
WORST #5 - Alvin and the Chipmunks: Chipwrecked
Taking an old classic and giving it a new revamp turned out to be a horrible idea. Their voices and singing are migraine inducing. Alvin is more like a psychopath than a cute prankster.
WORST #4 - Battleship
WORST #3 - Prometheus
More disappointing than bad. This film had so much promise to be good but became convoluted and messy. Too many plot holes, undeveloped characters, and pointless scenes.
WORST #2 - Red Tails
An embarrassing look at the Tuskegee Airmen who proudly served our country during WW2. This film plays out like a cheesy 40's war era film that doesn't hold up at all in today's movie industry. Great special effects but that's all the good I can give it.
WORST #1 - The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part 2
I don't want to talk about it.
BEST honorable mention - John Carter
This may have bombed at the box office but that doesn't mean it was a bad film. Go rent it if you have the chance.
BEST #10 - Lawless
Great characters except for Shia. It's a terrific look at bootlegging during the 30's.
BEST #9 - Ted
Though a few jokes don't stick, this film is one of the best comedies of the year.
BEST #8 - Cabin in the Woods
Turning the horror genre upside down, CITW gives you the same thrills you get with scary movies except with a twist!
BEST # 7 - The Hunger Games
One of the first good films of the year. A daunting look at a dystopian future where kids are pitted against each other in a battle to the death.
BEST #6 - Les Miserables
Only compliant is the runtime but other than that this film is emotionally moving with memorable songs and characters.
BEST #5 - 21 Jump Street
In my opinion the best comedy of the year. It's also a great action film.
BEST #4 - Pirates! Band of Misfits
One movie that slipped through the cracks was this film. Stop-motion animation at it's finest.
BEST #3 - The Artist
This movie won best picture at the Oscars and it definitely deserves it. A silent film that works in today's mega-blockbuster explosion world!
BEST #2 - Dark Knight Rises & Skyfall
Dark Knight Rises may not have been the best out of TDK trilogy but it was a great movie and a great ending to the series. Skyfall brings the old Bond back that we fell in love with in Casino Royale.
Best #1 - The Avengers
A nerd's dream finally come true. This movie has everything you want; comedy, action, drama and you're childhood fantasies coming to life!
