Film Prophet's 7th Annual Best & Worst Movie Awards:
2010 Edition

2010 was THE worst year for movies since this website started up back in 2003. The majority of the movies released this year were too bad to even consider watching just to type up a bad review about them. If there was a year that put a stop in my review process, it would be this one... and it certainly was.

This is the year's shortest disappointing movies list because not many movies were worth seeing this year. For proof, 2010 was the worst year since 1996 for the Hollywood box office. With too many remakes and reboots and pointless 3D films, they were all so forgettable that I  won't even bother looking them up and typing up a list here. This has been the lowest amount of reviews this year also. I missed documenting many movies by review this year on this site from October to December of 2010 along with a ton of summer releases that were seen during that time frame.


The 6 most disappointing movies seen and released in 2010:

1. Iron Man 2
2. Alice in Wonderland
3. Grown Ups
4. Despicable Me
5. The Other Guys
6. How Do You Know
