Thompson on Hollywood

Rotten Tomatoes has collected their reviews and collated the worst-of-the-worst films of the 21st century. Whiteout---how many of Joel Silver's films are on this list, I wonder?---ranks at number 100. What's number one? Check out the lowest Tomatometers of the decade. All of the films on this year's list scored below an 8% Tomatometer score; the top 14 all have 0%. Twelve Oscar-winners starred in a "worst" film: Al Pacino and Robert DeNiro star in two. The comedy genre outpaces any other on the list, with 35. 2002 was the worst year of the decade, with 16 worst movies. Carmen Electra starred in more worst films, six, than any one else.

Uwe Boll and the directing team of Jason Friedberg and Aaron Seltzer have four movies each on the list, more than any other director; John Whitesell and Peter Hyams have two. Read it and weep.
