The year has almost come to and end and most of us are packing our bags for chilly vacations, making resolutions or planning parties. However, some people like to rate movies in this beautiful season. Such are the folks at Times Online and their readers, well, movie critics to say. The critics at Times have brought up a list of the worst movies of 2009. They advice you to drop all the enlisted movies at any cost for your own good.
Personally, I believe one movie can’t really suit everybody’s taste and interest everyone. You just can’t compare all the movies of a whole good year, belonging to different genres and scratch out a worst of the lot list.
For an example, I gave Inglorious Basterds four-point-five stars out of five. I am not any influential movie critic, but I considered it a very good movie. I liked it very much. But look, oh! It’s on their worst movies list! I was certainly disappointed.
Other notable movies which have found a seat in the hall of shame are 2012, The Curious Case of Benjamin Button, Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince, Public Enemies, Terminator Salvation, X-Men Origins: Wolverine, The Boat that Rocked and quite a lot more. I personally believe that all movies, and most of forms of art, take a lot of time, energy and ambition to make. Certainly, you wouldn’t have liked some movies during the year, but labeling them as the worst of the lot is no good either.
Anyway, my thoughts aside, what do you think about the listed worst movies of 2009?
PS: The funniest part of the story is this comment from Collin Hoad: How is “New Moon” not in this list when “Harry Potter” is?
