Kevin Smith released a terrible fucking movie this year called "Cop Out." Critics rightly took him to task for that pile of garbage and ever since, Smith has been bitching and moaning like a little girl about how the press never reports anything accurately, should be forced to pay to review films and in general, is a dirty industry, with lazy people who don't care about anything. Yawn.

There’s a lot of bad movies released every year. Lots. We are but humans, and we can’t see them all. But someone always does. Sometimes it’s many (“The Twilight Saga”). Sometimes few (“Birdemic: Shock and Terror”). But there’s truly something to be said about the general public’s hunger for art that asks so little of them that they’re probably better off spending their time at home, masturbating or sticking firecrackers up their cat’s ass. Or both at the same time. We don’t judge. Maybe a little.

'Rio' and 'Water For Elephants' Also Shift While the original "Saw" isn't exactly a classic -- it's far too badly acted for that -- it's important to remember that in the light of the half-dozen increasingly awful sequels that it was, in its way, kind of an ingenious concept for a thriller, and director/writer duo James Wan and Leigh Whannell have followed it up with a pair of enjoyably grubby B-movies, "Dead Silence" and "Death Sentence," even if neither had anything like the impact of their debut.

Mark Millar Claims 'Most High Profile Actor Of 2010' Will Star In Adaptation Of 'Superior'

If the films based on the comic books of Mark Millar (or indeed, the comic books themselves) came anywhere near to matching the creator's ability to hype them up, his success rate would be close to Stanley Kubrick's. Instead, the William Castle of the comic book world has been behind "Wanted" and "Kick-Ass," and has spent 2010 claiming that he was writing the next "X-Men" movie for Fox (possibly confusing 'himself' with 'Matthew Vaughn and Jane Goldman'), that a sequel to "Kick-Ass" had been green-lit, and that Brad Pitt and Johnny Depp were going to star in the Tony Scott-helmed adaptation of "Nemesis."

The devastating but beautiful love/breakup story mashup "Blue Valentine" has taken a long time to come to fruition. When we recently sat down with star Michelle Williams, who gives an award-worthy performance in the film, she spoke of her passion for the project, and how she wanted to make it for more than six years after reading the script by co-writer and director Derek Cianfrance (two other writers are credited, Joey Curtis and Cami Delavigne). But Cianfrance had other plans once shooting began.
