James Cameron gets Josh Friedman for Avatar 2.

10 Top Movies That Prove You Have Crappy Taste

Top movies and great movies are often two completely different things as you’re about to discover. Going over the list of all-time US gross at IMDb, that becomes immediately visible. While it’s okay if you stumbled in to one or two of these expecting a good time, if you liked half, all, or even three of the flicks on this list, then congratulations. You are what’s wrong with America.

1. Avatar

James Cameron’s long-awaited follow-up to Titanic should have been a grand return to the action/sci-fi genre after Terminator, T2: Judgment Day, and Aliens. Unfortunately, Avatar is one terrible cliche after another with cheesy dialogue and a heavy-handed political message. The FX make for a pretty cartoon, but it’s hardly what one could call filmmaking. Yet somehow, fans and critics alike enjoyed it, making it more than just one of the top movies, but actually the highest grossing film of all time. Still, we’re inclined to agree with holdouts Devin Faraci (CHUD), who described it as “hackneyed, corny and trite,” and Philip Martin (Arkansas Democrat-Gazette), who called it “a big, dumb movie built to make money but hardly worthy of serious examination,” and Joshua Tyler (CinemaBlend), who points out that “Cameron missed the irony in making a preachy, anti-technology movie using the most technologically advanced tools available.”
