Meet Vivian ... this is now a very sad situation. Our usual pattern when we report to SCAC is to walk the kennels and determine which dogs are new residents and need a photograph to be posted to the SCAC site. As we walked the kennels last week before photographing the dogs we, once again, p [ ... ]

The Five Worst Movies of 2012

This year I saw and reviewed over 130 movies here. And now that the calender has flipped, it's time for all kinds of best and worst lists. This week, we'll post the Five Worst, Five Biggest Disappointing, Five Most Surprising, and the Five Best Movies of 2012.  Today, we'll start with the five worst.

Check out all of my movie reviews for the year

2012 was not a very memorable year with the movies.   Yes, revenues were way up but so were tickets prices.  Blockbusters really paid the freight.  The swing between the good and average was small, and to it's credit, Hollywood didn't make as many "horrible" flicks as normal.  There were a ton of extremely average movies, that to me was the prevailing takeaway from 2012.  But there were some real dogs, so here we go!  (To qualify for this list, movies based on when movies were released to local theaters)

The Five Worst Movies Of 2012

1/  Won't Back Down -  This is a horrible idea for a movie.  Parents supposedly taking over a school because the school was doing poorly.  Based on "actual events" is always a wimpy way out, translation - not true.  Story stinks, acting stinks, writing stinks, and is insulting to your intelligence.  Goes in 20 directions and not one is worth following. Almost unwatchable.  Not really one thing good about this.  Embarrasing!

2/  What To Expect, When You're Expecting -   This challenged for the coveted worst movie spot for me. This is a look at having children and is supposed to be funny. And it's not.   And as wonderful as Elizabeth Banks is, it is possibly the worst performance of the year for an actress. Big cast, big bomb.  Horrible in every single regard.  Walk-outable.

3/  One For The Money - Katherine Heigl has been tanking beyond anyone's belief recently.  And for someone so likable, her movies are not.  This is not funny, charming, or anything except Heigl in tight jeans for two hours.   In fact, this is hopefully the movie that makes her change directions in her career.  I have always felt she is better side dish than main course. It takes more than tight jeans, and big smile to make people want to pay 12 dollars to show up.  Funny, I didn't hate this movie as much at the time, but as time went on I disliked this movie more and more.

4/  The Collection -  Complete Saw series rip-off made by some of the same people.  This silly gore and blood fest has a huge problem outside of being tasteless and ridiculous.  It's amazingly unoriginal.   I know it's a sequel, but there is nothing about this that is anywhere near inventive.  Not scary, not compelling, just gross and bloody.

5/  House At The End Of The Street -  Sorry Jennifer Lawrence fans, of which I am one...this stinks. There is not one moment of this worth watching.  Supposedly scary, but ends up being predictable, and hokey.   Lawrence is joined in this cesspool by Elisabeth Shue, and a forgettable cast.   Steer clear.   No Red Box for you!  Luckily, JLaw will be back on our Five Best list later.

There's the Five Worst list.  Next up is the Five Most Surprising Movies of 2012.   It'll be up later this week.  If you have an opinion or thought, feel free to email me anytime, This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.
