OBAmericaIt’s Oscar weekend, which means it’s once again time for The Haiku Review to reveal its best and worst films of last year. But sometimes filling out a worst list can be difficult, since there are always a handful of terrible-looking films that THR deems unworthy of slogging through just to get down a few measly (and presumably vitriolic) syllables. Therefore, please enjoy the second annual “blacklist”- the top (or rather bottom) five films whose concepts, trailers, contributors and/or very existence caused this haikuist to shield his eyeballs and forever banish them to the “unwatched” pile.
