The absolute worst!

Last Sunday, I posted my five-worst-films-of-2008 list in the On Movies column: Australia, The Love Guru, My Blueberry Nights, The Other Boleyn Girl and The Strangers.

Several readers jogged my memory, though. (It's easy, and perhaps necessary, to block these painful experiences out!) So, I'm amending the list with a couple more:

The Happening, M. Night Shyamalan's stupefying "thriller" about an eco-disaster that befalls Philadelphia couple Mark Wahlberg and Zooey Deschanel and a whole mess of the rest of the planet...

... And 88 Minutes, the serial killer dud with an over-the-top Al Pacino gassing on for way longer than the title promised.

Have you been able to check out the new Notorious B.I.G. Film? I hear it's supposed to be better than all the others (8 Mile/TuPac/etc.).

PS. I totally agree about Australia!

Haven't seen "Notorious" yet, but the buzz has been good.

Guru was horrific excepting the cotton candy beard + eyebrows scene.

I gotta say, 10,000 B.C. has to be the worst movie of 2008. If not the worst it had to of had the worst ratio of money spent on a movie to product produced by the money spent.

Sorry, I was a little impatient there.
