Crash! Landen’s Worst 10 Movies of 1991

The worst of 1991 is an all timer for me, and the rest of the top 5 (or bottom 5) are irritatingly bad, but the rest of my Top 10 (6-10) are actually somewhat watchable. I’ve watched far worse in any case. Some of these might even be a little unfair to put on a ‘worst’ list. Picking a Hulk Hogan movie in any year is shooting water in a barrel… Yes, easier than shooting the fish in the barrel. He has been in a decent movie or 2 (one of the Rocky films comes to mind), so he’s not excused. You kind of have to expect that a Vanilla Ice is going to be on the list, by default. That Julia Roberts would have not one, but two on my list doesn’t surprise me, either. Dying Young’s title alone is worthy of going on the list. That probably got the ‘green light’ over similar titles like ‘Shooting Puppies’. Freddy’s Dead was not entirely bad either. All of the ‘Nightmare’ films are watchable, despite only 2 (maybe 3) of them being any good.Freddy’s Dead also had some big name stars in it, along with the lovely and talented Lisa Zane (who I always liked). I watched them, though, otherwise they wouldn’t be on the list, so it’s my fault, ultimately, that they’re here.
Other movies that didn’t quite make the cut: the extremely watchable crap football movie ‘Necessary Roughness… The not entirely bad/almost decent Richard Grieco vehicle/timewaster ‘If Looks Could Kill’… the disgustingly weird for a mainstream movie ‘ Nothing But Trouble’… Sylvester Stallone’s attempt to ‘branch out’  with the gangster/comedy ‘Oscar’… The after school special that was The Pistol: The Birth of a Legend…. The terrible in a fun way football movie (even with a Wayans brother in it) ‘The Last Boy Scout’… One of the crappier Trek films ‘Star Trek VI: The Undiscovered Country’… and then there was one of those failed movies on a legendary scale ‘Harley Davidson and the Marlboro Man’. That one could’ve been much worse than it was, though, and I believe has a bit of cult status to it.
Anyway, as always; here’s my bottom 10:
10 Freddy’s Dead: The Final Nightmare
9 Sleeping with the Enemy
8 Don’t Tell Mom the Babysitter’s Dead
7 Problem Child 2
6 Delirious
5 Eve Of Destruction
4 Dying Young
3 Suburban Commando
2 Cool As Ice
1 Meet the Applegates

And I guess the list reminds… I guess I need to go see the Nightmare On Elm Street remake… From all the negative reviews, maybe it’ll make my 2010 Worst List….
