Every year there is a specific timeframe for costumes you can get from cool movies that come out and whether it’s too late to wear a costume from a last year’s film. There are always memorable characters, even throughout the decades. However, this year was a little different as there were many huge box-office hitting flicks that just didn’t give the right characters to dress up as for Halloween. Below is a list of the 9 lamest Halloween Costumes from this year’s movies. Oh, and one from last year… you’ll see why. If you dressed up as something on this list over the weekend, we hope you did it well, and spent the money on it to make it epic. If not, consider all prior movies for Halloween 2011 and remind yourself of what is great, and what is not.
Shrek: Because nobody even remembers that a Shrek movie came out this year. Why? Is poor character wore out his welcome years ago. Just because your kids have the uncanny ability to watch it over and over again, doesn’t mean they won’t be overwhelmed by seeing him in person.
Alice: You may think this year’s Alice costumes is fresher and newer this year thanks to the hit movie by Tim Burton starring Johnny Depp, but let’s face it. Alice was the dullest part of that movie.
Perseus or Prince Dastan: These characters are so generic, and in movies so forgettable, that they might as well be considered as one. They don’t even credit for two lame costumes. In 5 years you won’t even remember which actor was in which movie.
Reed Bennett in Valentine’s Day: It won’t get you laid. Cute movie, yes; made lots of money, yes; wearing pink makes you look sensitive, yes; but all things considered, you won’t get a piece.
Any of the Expendables: The black flak jacket/black beret look is pretty cool, and it’s always fun to carry around fake weapons on Halloween, but anybody without an Adonis body will look ridiculous in that getup. No offense, but you know you’re not at Statham muscle level right now.
Freddy Krueger: The memory of the classic horror villain was brutally murdered by this year’s terrible remake. It’s just too soon.
Robin Hood: You want to wear tights? Go be Peter Pan. This costumes consists of practically what a bum would wear, Hollywood style. If this was you over the weekend, I hope your Halloween night wasn’t as unfulfilling as the movie.
Aang from The Last Airbender: You’ll get laughed at. End of.
Any Na’vi character: The movie came out last December, which means it was too late for last Halloween, but now way too late for this Halloween. Sorry, you just missed the window.
