MY 2010’S LIST OF 10 ‘FAR BELOW EXPECTATION’ MOVIES

Bad movies. Worse movies. Worst movies. We got tons of them in a year. This list is not all about those bad but more to movies with the capacity and expectancy of being good but instead, turns to a letdown. Here it goes.

1. SKYLINE

So brothers who? from AVP Requiem has awaken from their sleeps. Even top notch effects won’t help the plot’s stupidity. This hasn’t come even close to, err.. Cloverfield

2. A NIGHTMARE ON ELM STREET

What have they done to the classic horror that brought Robert Englund’s Freddy Kruger to the stardom? Bad mockups, bad Kruger’s voice, and this is the worst. So they thought it’ll be cool to brought up pedophilia’s side of Freddy. You’re wrong. Dead wrong.

3. LEGION

Superheroes? No. Religious? Got a little message, but no. Zombies? You wish. Being blur to the main themes, one. Lack of intense action? Two. Bettany’s zero charisma as the hero? Three. Weak final showdown? Four. Tricky poster? Five. Waste of Dennis Quaid? Six. Max.

4. SATU JAM SAJA

The comeback of Karnos film with Rano Karno to the Indonesian big screen and a promised to be a tearjerker touching romantic drama. The result? Full of Indonesian’s way of unbelievable turns of conflict and 70s unupdated cliche. Yes, it’s that bad.

5. THE TOURIST

This long awaited Hollywood remake of French critically acclaimed movie, ‘Anthony Zimmer’ doesn’t live up to any expectations, even with Johnny Depp-Angelina Jolie in a ‘match made in heaven’ promises, and that acclaimed director from Oscar’s ‘The Lives Of Others’. Venice sets and Timothy Dalton’s appearance could be a treat, but won’t help you felling bored. Real bored. Oh, and Bettany’s in it, too.

6. RED COBEX

This Indonesian comedy was really trying to look funny, but what we saw is a bunch of annoying schmuck characters who shout all over and doing stupid moves, not to mention one famous actress who couldn’t stop repeating her line, ‘bedebah’, almost a thousand times over it. The movie itself is ‘bedebah’. Totally annoying.

7. THE BOUNTY HUNTER

Promising ensemble in its trends-effort to brings 80s action rom-com back to the screen has lost everything since the very beginning. Lack of chemistry. Not funny. Bad action. Bomb.

8. FUTURE X-COPS

A boring HK sci-fi with bad effects, bad plot and bad acting. Bad.

9. CLASH OF THE TITANS

For mocking the great Zeus into a sexmaniac Gods, Worthington’s hair, and blurring Perseus’ motivations rooting for Gemma Arterton instead of Andromeda, this one should’ve awaken The Titans from their underworlds.

10. TAKERS

Just a bunch of sick rappers wants to play with guns behind great white names. A waste of many talents, and a bang without hearts.

  1. “For mocking the great Zeus into a sexmaniac Gods”
    Uhm… kayanya film ini gak mocking deh. Zeus ‘kan dari legenda sananya emang pervert. Punya banyak kekasih, mistress dan suka bercinta dengan siapapun sampai membuat Hrea ngamuk. Suka ngasih hukuman berat untuk kesalahan sekecil. Dia bahkan lebih ‘manusia’ dari manusia itu sendiri.

  2. 🙂. some version of the myth said so. tapi dalam perbandingannya dgn Clash Of The Titans lama and let’s say, a myth fantasy dimana hal-hal seperti itu sepertinya gak perlu diekspos kelewat over. after all kan Zeus dalam konteks ini plays his part like a god and also the final-decision maker on the story, so they need to built a sympathy for him instead. coba di legenda hercules zeus-nya jg diekspos kenakalannya, bisa2 penonton bersimpati ama the other gods rather than Zeus and his sons.
