I actually saw "Alvin and the Chipmunks: The Squeakuel" and I did not gouge my eyes out with my thumbs, although it was a close call. Even so, I agree - any movie with the word "Twilight" in its title is by far and away the clear winner in the "most horrific abomination" category.

Um, Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs is based on a kid's book, and it's about food that falls from the sky. The movie itself uses the same kind of rapid-fire joke delivery as, well, every other Dreamworks animated flick, and it has Bruce Campbell and Mr. T on the VO cast.

In new moon's defence. (and dear god I never thought those words would pass my lips.) I would have to say it could easily take out funniest film of all time. Yes this means I saw the abomination, but I can happily report that most of the rest of the cinema enjoyed the running commentary provided by myself and my friends.

As a side note, the nastiest shock I ever recieved in my life was when I woke up one morning to see the edward cullen cardboard cut-out my friends had bought from the local cinema standing at the end of my bed.

You are right about Up. Although I really liked the movie, and the emotion of the opening sequence plays heavily into why I like it, I have to admit it is heart wrenching.

Agree with everything, except "best animated film". I thought Coraline was freaking amazing!

Also, my pick for "best movie that nobody saw" is the live action version of Blood: The Last Vampire.

I have to agree with greenimp. New Moon was friggin hilarious. especially when you go with a group of friends and riff on it the entire time.
Cant wait for the last film.

Screw that. I can't wait for the Rifftrax for New Moon! The one they did for the first movie was an absolute riot.

Great list as usual. Only bad thing was Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs. Unless you're super young or super old, how have you not heard of that. And Coraline freaking rules.

Also, my pick for "best movie that nobody saw" is the live action version of Blood: The Last Vampire.

Well, the origin story for Saya was a little cliché (especially compared to her origin in Blood+), and the fights were a little Matrix-y, (which would be fine except the original anime kept the fights realistic and avoided the usual "anime fight scenes" that inspired matrix-style fights), but other than that, I thought it was pretty good.

It's a decent expansion of the original anime short-film, and translates well to live-action.

It's not as good as the original, and I still think the best version of the character is Blood+, but IMO it was damned entertaining.

And, I never heard of Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs before the movie ads, either. I heard something about it being a book, though.

I didn't see any of these movies. Actually, I only went to the cinema once this year. The movie? Defiance.

Well, a third Alvin and The Chipmuinks Movie has been announced and it's going to be in 3-D(I think it's the Thursday post on that link).

Also, Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs was fantastic, and I've never, EVER consider the Rock a talented actor. Ever.

Protoclown is a scab on the ass of an otherwise great website. Middle of the road dullard.

Lotta good stuff in this article. Thank you for the bit on Moon, that was a fantastic movie that needs more love (I don't quite like Dr. Parnassus as much, but it's still good). I was one of the folks who loved Watchmen, but I can understand where you're coming from in regards to it (I wouldn't recommend it to folks who hadn't read the book either). And kudos to loving Fantastic Mr. Fox, that was my favorite animated movie of the year as well.

Also, Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs is based on an old kids book of the same name, and is quite good. Give it a chance. Ditto Bad Lieutenant: Port of Call New Orleans, for the reason of having an absolutely insane Nicholas Cage in it.

Now then... no mention of District 9? No award for it? For shame.

Aw, testtube! You say the sweetest things!

And guys, I'm sure Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs might be well worth viewing--it's simply the title that I think is stupid, and that's what I gave it the award for.

As for District 9, it was enjoyable, but I just never thought of an award to give to it.

How about best underrated actor award for Sam Rockwell for both Moon and Gentlemen Broncos.

Oh, and I totally wish Liam Neeson was my daddy.

We're just filling you in since you'd never heard of it, Proto. And for District 9, you can always invent an award for "Best movie with a nine in the title," because there was definitely more than one of those last year.

Oh, and neoboman: Some of us have these things called "younger siblings." They're very much like those small, high-voiced people you often see out and about, except they're related to us. That's how we know what children's books are. They also let us know that LEGO exists.

Because he thinks the rock is a good actor. An outrage, I say!
