Looking for a review of Concussion, the Point Break Remake, or Alvin and the Chipmunks? Well I’m sorry (not really) to inform you that I saw Star Wars for the third time instead of seeing any of those. So you don’t get reviews for any of those (yet?). But it is that time of end of the year lists. So, we’ll kick it off by talking about some movies that are truly terrible. Before we begin, I have a confession. Being a movie reviewer who is also on a college budget, I don’t see every movie. I tend to avoid ones that I’ve heard are really bad, such as Fant4stic and Hot Pursuit. With that being said, I still managed to see a bunch of god-awful movies. Some of these I’ve been roped into seeing by other people. Others I had been told were good and ended up hating them. For any of these that came out after I started this site in June, you can click on the title to read my review. Without further ado, here are the worst movies of the year:
– I actually gave this movie a “good” rating for some reason. That was a mistake. While the first half has the makings of one of the best modern horror movies, the second half falls apart completely and ruins the movie.
9. The Visit
– The movie that was supposed the be the redemption of M. Night Shyamalan ends up being a stupid found footage snoozer.
– I don’t understand all the love for this movie. I enjoyed it for a little bit but it gets so cartoonish and dumb that it completely lost me.
– Another overrated movie, this is just Melissa McCarthy Melissa McCarthy-ing again and I didn’t find it that funny or enjoyable.
– A remake that was somehow even more pointless than the one for Point Break. Also, it’s probably worse than the Point Break remake, though I’ve yet to witness that travesty myself.
– It has some cool stuff with a German Shephard, but what in god’s name was this movie actually about? The plot tried to get too fancy and it… well didn’t pay off.
4. Taken 3
– We already had a pointless remake make the list, so here’s a pointless sequel. The original Taken was so great that it is unfortunate that this movie is such a poorly edited, weirdly paced mess.
– That unusual movie where the title aptly fits how bad the movie is. The only time I laughed was during scenes with LeBron James, which is not a good thing for the movie since he’s in approximately 10 minutes of it.
– This movie is a complete and utter disgrace towards the fantastic original. It is brutally terrible and hard to watch. To top it off, it’s not even that scary. A horror movie that isn’t scary. Never a good thing.
1. 50 Shades of Grey
– I’m pretty sure this is at the top of everyone’s list, so negative points on the creativity here. But even more negative points to this somewhat disturbing mess of a movie that doesn’t make any sense at all and has the worst dialogue of any movie I’ve ever seen. We can only hope that the planned sequels fall apart and never materialize.
There they are- the worst of the year. I’m glad I never have to watch any of those movies again. Take to the comment section to let me know what your most hated movies of the year were.
Stay tuned on the site for some changes heading into the new year. Some of you may have already noticed the new logo and there is more cool stuff to come. I’m looking forward to sharing it with you and, as always, thanks for reading.
