    The Blind Side

    I know, I know. I suspect my opinion belongs to a tiny minority, but The Blind Side just grates on me. Movie-Mike Oher was way too dimwitted considering real-life Mike Oher comes off as a normal guy, Sandra Bullock was a tad too self-satisfied, the "protective instinct" scene was a tad too sappy, and the "I'm a Democrat!" joke was a tad too focus-grouped toward red state moviegoers. I've never seen Radio. Is it as bad as they say?

    The Blind Side

    I just think this movie has it coming.
  3. Even though they're kind of a punchline in themselves, I have to admit I have a soft spot for the Resident Evil series. They don't put the most thought into story, plot, or generally making sense, but they're usually a hell of a good time (and much easier to swallow if you think of each movie as an episode in an ongoing serial, and not a standalone product). That was until I saw the fifth movie, Retribution, in the theater this fall. Somehow, in a series that has made more and more money with each sequel, this movie manages to look like it had a production budget of about $50. The plot is off-the-wall bonkers: this is a movie where things happen just because, with nary an earned plot development in sight. During scenes in the middle of the movie, I wondered why everything was taking so long; by the time the credits rolled, I wondered why the movie had only felt 20 minutes long. Such was the magic of this movie's shittiness. A rich and pulsing vein of WTF.

    Bad Halloween Movies!

    I'm going to make just one more argument for Carrie 2 (because I rewatched it last night and heard the Batman comments in the Barb Wire podcast today). The sanitarium in the movie is called Arkham, which confirms what I've always suspected: The Dark Knight lives in the Stephen King universe.

    ...also, it co-stars the oldest brother from Home Improvement. If that's not a mark of quality, I don't know what is.

    The Rage: Carrie 2. It opens with a woman being institutionalized for painting her house red, and the climax involves a football star being harpooned in the junk.

    Tucker & Dale vs. Evil (2010)

    If the show did an episode about this movie, they would have to change its name to 'How Did This ABSOLUTE SLICE OF AWESOME Get Made?'

    A Christmas Story 2

    Noooooo... Someone actually made this?!?! This may be the worst movie I will watch title-to-credits.

    The Avengers (1998)

    Oh yeeaaah, didn't that movie kind of mark the ass-end of '60s-70s adventure show movie-remakes? Not that those have stopped completely but there was a streak of them, and I think The Avengers was the one where folks' nostalgia ran out. Literally the only scene I remember from that movie is a robot flying over a lush country road.

    Freaked (1993)

    Ha! I think I watched this movie out of order over three-to-five viewings when it was making the rounds on Cinemax 10 years ago. I remember liking it a lot; very twisted.

    Steel (1997)

    YES. I remember being so excited for this movie, and then being SO disappointed.

    Cool World (1992)

    Oh man, yes. This movie. No reasonable plot, just an excuse to have cartoon titties on screen for 80 minutes.

    One for the Money (2012)

    OMG, the writing on this movie... I don't know what it was precisely--maybe it was just a poor screenplay adaptation from the book that left too many subplots in--but it just felt so loooong. And it was only 90 minutes.

    In Time

    I also had trouble buying Cillian Murphy as a 27-year-old, as much as I like him as an actor. At the same time, I was surprised Mark Wahlberg didn't jump all over this movie for the chance to play another clearly-younger-than-his-actual-age character.
