Someone asked me what I thought were the worst movies of 2010. I know what I like, so I manage to avoid the bad ones most of the time. But occasionally a real stinker gets through. Two of them got through in 2010. Here they are:
Splice, a science fiction movie about two of the dumbest scientists in movie history who create a human/who-knows-what hybrid that walks on hooves, has a stinger in its tail, sprouts wings and then tries to kill everyone. It’s a freakish, unpleasant, torture-porn type of movie. I can’t think of a single reason to recommend it, unless you like that kind of crap. What a waste of time. ZERO STARS.
Piranha 3D. I saw it because a visiting friend wanted to see it thinking it would be a fun B-movie along the lines of Deep Blue Sea, but it’s not. Instead of a parody of dumb sea monster movies, it’s just another dumb sea monster movie, one that’s not even so bad it’s good. I’ve met people who disagree with me, but they’re wrong. Deep Blue Sea is a masterpiece of modern cinema next to this.
