Never before has handing out
these awards been more difficult. When decent, but not great
films like Seven Swords and Initial D get included
in a Top 10 list, you know it's been a crappy year. 2005 looks
even worse when you consider what barely missed the cut:
Drink-Drank-Drunk, House of Fury, and The Myth.
Hell, even Dragon Reloaded could have made the Top
10. Was 2005 really this terrible?
In a word: yes. As further proof, we give you William Hung
-- and I actually feel guilty about singling Hung out for
negative awards because knocking William Hung is as original
as being a fan of the Los Angeles Lakers. But the kid deserves
his knocks; he was terrible in Where's Mama's Boy,
a movie that was bad enough already even without Hung. At
least we had Election, Crazy N' The City, and
SPL. Plus there was The Promise; a more [inadvertently]
entertaining time was probably not had at the movies this
year. With the absence of actual good films, craptacular entertainment
is the next best thing.
If 2006 isn't better then the site will be moving to Taiwan.
For being justly criticized,
and somewhat underrated
all at the same time.
Also, the film gets points for
the Finger Pointing Pimp Stick
of the Year
For SPL and Seven Swords,
and just for being Donnie Yen.
Despite what you may think of him,
let's face it: in 2005, Donnie Yen was
an entertainment eyeful.
