Nominations for the Worst Movies of 2009

It's awards season, which means it's time to judge the worst movies of the year! Vote on a winner for each category!

Worst Movie of 2009:
Jennifer's Body - High school cannibalism!
Knowing - It's basically National Treasure 3!
Twilight 2: New Moon - High school is full of such tough choices... such as Werewolves or Vampires?! omg!
I Love You Beth Cooper - Gag.
Old Dogs - Just give up already.

Worst Actor of 2009:
Micheal Cera in Year One - can you play anything other than an awkward weirdo indie virgin?
Micheal Cera in Paper Heart - Same question.
Taylor Lautner in Twilight 2: New Moon - Ok, this scene you're going to be shirtless and overly aggressive. Ok, now this scene can you try to be a little more overly aggressive? Why are you still wearing a shirt?
Robin Williams in Old Dogs - remember when you used to make good movies?

Worst Actress of 2009:
Megan Fox in Jennifer's Body - Yuck.
Megan Fox in Transformers 2 - Yawn.
Kristen Stewart in Twilight 2: New Moon - No surprise, of course.
Kristen Stewart in Adventureland - Can you play anything other than overly angsty alternative teen?
Amanda Seyfried in Jennifer's Body - I just expected more from you.

Most Disappointing Movie of 2009:
Couples Retreat- Vince Vaughn, Jason Bateman, Kristen Bell and Jon Favreau all on an island trying to work out their marriage problems? It's like the perfect recipe for humor, yet it failed so miserably.
Love Happens- Ok, so we expect a boring performance from Jennifer Anderson, but come on Aaron Ekhart! You can do way better than this!
Transformers 2- This movie was such a let-down! The storyline was a complete failure and the acting was pathetic. The only redeeming quality was the special effects, but even that can get boring after 3 hours.
All About Steve- How can Sandra Bullock do something as moving as Blindside and something as hilarious as The Proposal in the same year she does something as shitty as All About Steve? And Bradley Cooper? You were so funny in The Hangover! What happened here??
X-Men Origins: Wolverine- Hugh Jackman isn't just the victim of an elaborate plot to create the ultimate weapon, but he's also a victim of horrendous storytelling.

Worst Adapted Screenplay of 2009:
Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince- I was really enjoying it up until the ending. How can you totally cut out an action-packed fight scene at the climax of the story? Fantastic source material laid to waste so they could have more time for angsty-flirty scenes. Lame.
Twilight 2: New Moon- Though to be fair, how can we expect a good screenplay from a bad book?
Angels and Demons - it's just so boring.

Vote for the worst of each category! And feel free to add your own nominations or defend your favorite werewolf...

  1. Yeah So...I haven't seen all of these...let's be honest: Most of these...

    But I already have a baseless hatred of twilight, so I'll just vote for that in ever category. Also, Ms. Fox went from suck to blow when she did Jennifer's she also loses in my book. Why not just be in a porno? Oh wait...
