Worst Movies of the Decade

I just wanted to take a time-out from my series on the best films of the decade to recognize the worst. While I've only seen one film on Rotten Tomatoes' list of the worst reviewed films of the decade I have managed to see some crap. Thankfully, the nightmares must be over since I had to research my Netflix ratings to jog my memory on crappy movies.

So, here are my top 25 worst movies I've seen this decade. The movies listed below are all theatrical releases only, NO straight-to-DVD films. I've decided to make a brief statement about the top 10 as to why I thought they were crap.


1. Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen
While the action in this cash cow is truly awesome, the reason this movie stands above all the terrible action movies listed below is it isn't just horrendously ridiculous, illogical, or full of itself - no, it is the single most offensive film I've seen this decade.

Best of the Decade: Documentaries & Animation

10. DiG!
9. Control Room
8. Winged Migration
7. Spellbound
6. An Inconvenient Truth
5. Who Killed the Electric Car?
4. Fahrenheit 9/11
3. Murderball
2. Bowling for Columbine
1. Fog of War

Honorable mentions: Metallica: Some Kind of Monster, The Corporation, and Super Size Me
