From cookie-monster talking werewolves in one of the most unnecessarily drawn out films of '11(Breaking Dawn Part 1), to an overlong, over-indulgent ode to depression and the first world problems of rich white people (Melancholia), there were some stinkers. Don't even get me started on the cliches of underdog story Real Steel which - even though it allowed me the opportunity to interview Hugh Jackman - had me seething in my seat as I watched robot hands clumsily reach for the heartstrings of the family market. Lets not even get started on the ridiculousness of Troll Hunter, whose point I totally missed, and end-of-the-world thriller The Divide which had me wishing the world would actually end so I could get the fuck out of the cinema.
Sigh. Alas, here they are; my pick of the 10 worst films of 2011. BYO tomatoes.
The Next Three Days Green Lantern
The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 1
A Heartbeat Away
Troll HunterJack and Jill
Biggest disappointments: Sucker Punch and Red Riding Hood.
Stay tuned for the highly commended films of 2011 as well as the 10 best.
