The Coen brothers are genius auteurs who have made masterpieces for over 25 years, and their latest, True Grit, entertained audiences to the tune of $24.5 million this weekend. So naturally, because the majority of American movie-goers are mouth-breathing ass-tards, the film placed second to that monumentally stupid and artless piece of shit, Little Fockers. Honestly, I don’t even understand how any human being with a shred of dignity or taste can even say Little Fockers to a ticket collector without dying a little inside. Congratulations, morons.
Here are your top 3 films at the box-office for the weekend of Dec. 31 – Jan. 2
1.) Little Fockers – $26.3 million
2.) True Grit – $24.5 million
3.) Tron Legacy – $18.3 million

When I was compiling this list, it was truly disturbing to look back at just how many awful, stinky, shit-bombs there were polluting multi-plexes in 2010. This list covers only the ten worst that I actually saw, so don’t expect to see any Twilight pictures, Fockers, or Marmaduke here, because I’d rather slide naked down a razor-banister than pay money to see any of those epic turds. That having been said, here are my TOP TEN WORST FILMS of 2010!
OH. MY. GOD. It’s rare when I come across a film that immediately looks like one I’ll buy on DVD the day it hits, watch it with friends at least once a month, and endlessly quote dialogue from, but Your Highness is one of them. Written by Danny MacBride and directed by his Eastbound & Down partner in crime David Gordon Green, this flick looks like a completely insane stoner version of The Princess Bride, or Lord of the Rings meets The Pineapple Express.
Your Highness looks like it has it all: Creepy wizards shooting lightning, epic quests, swords and armor, multi-headed dragons, pot-smoking Yoda-like creatures, and Natalie Portman looking drop dead amazing in nothing but a thong. All this, plus the super-dreamy Zooey Deschanel sporting massive cleavage in a medieval corset. Incredible. I’m stunned that a Hollywood studio greenlighted a movie like this, but I’m so glad they did because it looks like a boatload of fun. Look for it in theaters on April 8, 2011.

Most moviegoers with slightly average intelligence (i.e, those who avoided Yogi Bear this weekend) know Sam Worthington is a terrible actor, and that the Clash of the Titans remake he was in sucked. Now Worthington himself has admitted these truths in a Moviefone interview:
