List: Worst Movies of Fall 2010 By Trailer

If you follow me on Twitter, you know that I’ve been ranting and raving about how few movies I’m looking for this fall season. Despite a few hugely anticipated movies (a la Harry Potter), there are dozens of movies that, solely based on their trailers, look simply terrible. Here is our list of the worst five movies of the fall 2010 based only on their trailers. Needless to say, I will avoid seeing these movies in their entirety at all costs.

  1. Skyline: Let’s see. Where to even begin with this one. It’s “Independence Day,” meets “Cloverfield” meets “Alien.” Not sure why they thought this was a good or why decent actors like Eric Balfour would choose to be in it. Nothing would make me happier than this movie crashing and burning on its multi-million dollar budget.
  2. The Next Three Days: How many times does America have to see the same movie? In another addition of the revenge game, the legendary Russell Crowe follows his overrated performance in “Robin Hood” with a paycheck movie. You can’t tell me he went into this movie thinking, ‘oh wow, maybe I’ll win another Oscar with this one.’
  3. Faster: Once again we’ve already seen this movie. Not only have we seen it, we’ve seen Dwayne Johnson in it. Remember “The Rundown” co-starring Sean William Scott? Yeah pretty sure this is the urban version of that movie. Pass.
  4. Drive Angry: Nick Cage where has your career gone? Despite recent flashes of greatness in movies like “Kick Ass,” there have been way to many movies like this recently. In “Ghost Rider” he had super powers. Now he doesn’t. When has loosing super powers ever made a movie better?
  5. Burlesque: I can’t say that I think this movie will be terrible. What I can say is that it has to be great in order for me to even be interested. With co-stars Cher and Christina Aguilera, the singing talent is there but I am extremely skeptical of either of them in a leading movie role. That puts them in the hole before way before opening night.

    I agree with you with all of them, but I’ll bet money that you’ve never saw robin hood so there for you cannot critique crowes acting in it.
