I'm still hoping to catch a couple more movies before I'm ready to do my year end best movies list, but I figure I'll be optimistic and do a worst movies list now (optimistic because doing so contains the hope that none of the movies I'm waiting to catch will be on this list).
First off, I have no pretensions that this is the defining list of bad 2006 movies. In fact, movies on this list have appeared on Best of 2006 lists elsewhere. The truth is, I go out of my way to avoid bad movies, so if I happen to catch one, it's a movie that looked like it would be good. A reason for this is that I'm not a fan of genres that often produce really bad movies, be it mindless action movies, teen comedies, slasher flicks, or fantasy/sci-fi (before you write your angry responses, I'm not saying those genres suck, I'm saying that they produce some really sucky movies from people just trying to make a buck off of genre fans. They can also produce good movies).
So this is my list of movies that looked good when I went to see them, and ended up sucking. I'm not avoiding controversy here, so feel free to bring the anger if you wish (or, even better, telling me when I'm right). Also, I reviewed each of these movies, so if you want to read my review, click on the hypertext accompanying each write-up.( Collapse )
