The 10 Worst F**king Movies of 2015
Doing a "worst movies of the year" list can go many directions. Some authors like to focus on the worst of the worst. Others on the biggest disappointments. I tend to lean toward the latter, but this year my list represents a mix of both, films that are just downright awful and others that fell far short of expectations.
Had I been commital and definitive to either direction, the list below would have looked a bit different. Movies such as The Gallows and Paul Blart: Mall Cop 2 were just wretched, but no one expected or hoped for otherwise. Meanwhile, Spectre, The Avengers: Age of Ultron, Tomorrowland and even Furious 7 were big letdowns, but hardly intolerable to watch.
No, this list simply represents ten movies I never, ever would watch again–even if someone paid me. In short, f**k these movies.
In space, no one can hear you yawn. The Wachowskis returned to remind us once again that they really are one-hit wonders as their ambitious and expensive sci-fi epic served as 2015’s John Carter, in which bored actors shoot lasers at each other amidst sets and pieces that are poor copies of those from better, more innovative movies.
Terminator: Genisys is an amazing feat of filmmaking. By boasting not a single good action scene, a story that gives the middle finger to the world James Cameron built and terrible, horrible acting, this latest Terminator is an orgy of stupidity.
Whether the fault lies with director Josh Trank or the producers that attempted to salvage the film we’ll likely never know, but what we do know is that Fantastic Four is a film that is literally missing a second act. It’s not as bad as some say, but it’s still a disaster, another example of potential wasted, talent underutilized, and a franchise doomed from the onset.
Rather than explain how stupid this movie is, best to just show you:
Insurgent hops from one meaningless and bland action piece to the next, each dotted with ambitious but not very good visual effects. Whatever blackmail forced Kate Winslet into this franchise managed to snag Naomi Watts this go-around, and both Oscar-winning actresses look confused as to how their agents got them into this mess.
