People who added this item 787 Average listal rating (488 ratings) 5.4 IMDB Rating 5.4

Note : Even worse than the 4th Underworld installment, you have the 5th Resident Evil installment.... At this moment, we got the point, Kate Beckinsale and Milla Jovovich are some pretty badass b*tches but I would be glad to see them in something else. Anyway, I'm officially fed up with this franchise... It was just an abysmal story, with some tedious characters, even the action scenes were not really impressive. Even though I didn't like the other sequels, I always reminded open-minded and could find one or two redeeming features. Not this time though.

Note : This last feature starring Eddie Murphy was again another rather pathetic comedy, a really typical example of what Murphy has been doing in the last 15 years. Indeed, it was based on a really weak concept similar to 'Liar Liar' or 'Yes Man' and either you have to provide some hilarious jokes (which was the case with 'Liar Liar') or you have to provide some interesting characters but there was nothing funny or interesting here.

People who added this item 811 Average listal rating (497 ratings) 6.3 IMDB Rating 6.4

Note : Not only was it the shortest (only 75 minutes!) but also the weakest installment of the franchise. Indeed, the whole Lycan conspiracy has already been done before (in the first movie, right? Honestly, I couldn't care less...) and it felt really redundant.

People who added this item 76 Average listal rating (43 ratings) 6 IMDB Rating 6

Note : Honestly, I didn't know what this flick was about beforehand and I didn't know what to expect but it was pretty weak. Basically, it is one of those very convoluted thrillers with some repetitive annoying twists and I really had a hard time to care about the whole thing.

Battleship (2012)

Note : The lack of inspiration in Hollywood is pretty obvious but after the sequels, prequels, reboots, remakes, book adaptations, comic-books, tv-shows, is a board game the only thing left?!? Anyway, honestly, I thought the whole thing was pretty boring. Indeed, the introduction was really tiresome and tideous and then the rest was just a mix of various movies going from the obvious 'Transformers', 'Independence Day', 'Predator' and even 'Titanic'.

People who added this item 290 Average listal rating (177 ratings) 3.5 IMDB Rating 4.2

Note : I always had a weak spot for the found footage genre but after watching this flick, I now understand the whole fatigue concerning this genre. Basically, two things were missing, originality and cleverness. Indeed, except for a few creepy moments, it was pretty tedious and really uninspired and all these flaws were even more obvious with the ending.

Vamps (2012)

Note : I thought it was a rather tedious vampire comedy. Indeed, Amy Heckerling, whose last hit was already 20 years ago with ‘Clueless’ also starring Alicia Silverstone, tried to give a new modern twist to our familiar vampire legends but it was a huge failure. Indeed, basically, the whole thing was a long succession of tedious jokes. I mean, I understand that she tried to switch the gothic and gloomy mood usually displayed to a rather frivolous and whimsical setting and while the idea was not half-bad, the execution was rather disappointing.

Note : At last, I'm finally done with this franchise... To be honest, I have never really understood the passion it created, either from the lovers or the haters. Sure, it is all rather weak and underwhelming but it is also rather harmless and I have seen much worse through the years. Anyway, coming back to our main feature, in my opinion, it was actually a step down from the previous installment. Indeed, Bella has finally become a vampire, she and Edward have managed to have some weird hybrid baby (by the way, it must be the creepiest baby I have ever seen) but, instead of focusing on this new set-up, they all get wrapped around some really boring supposedly climatic fight with the vampire big bosses, a fight which never happened in the book and, in fact, also never really takes place in this movie either.

That's My Boy (2012)

Note : That's a tricky one... On one hand, since it is an Adam Sandle feature, it obviously deserves a spot on this list. On the other hand, I have to admit that it wasn't as bad as I expected it to be. Therefore, it gets a such a low spot because most of it was pretty much worthless but I have seen much worse coming from that guy.

People who added this item 208 Average listal rating (126 ratings) 5 IMDB Rating 4.9

Note : Honestly, it didn't really bother me that Bruce Willis was there for only 30 minutes (obviously another pay-check role for him), what actually bothered me was the fact he was brought back just to explain the plot to his son and the audience. In my opinion, those kind of stories work better when the main character has to figure it out on his own. Of course, they had to give him a side-kick who happened to be a nice Spanish girl and, once again, it would have been more entertaining if the guy would have been all alone. The fact that she was in fact his half-sister was also terribly lame and completely unnecessary.

I do sit with a feeling that you are very kind when it comes to your ratings. Yes? :)

@Bml93, I just love movies, man.... Even in the worst piece of garbage, I can find some redeeming features. On the other hand, I almost never give a 9 rating because there are always things that bother me, even in the best movies, and it must have been 10 years since I gave a 10 rating to any movie.

Also I think that- like me- for the most part you try to avoid things that are obviously going to be complete garbage. For example, I also gave Skyfall a 6/10. It's on your list partly because you haven't watched too much absolute shit yet this year. It didn't make my Worst of 2012 list in part perhaps because I watched slightly more junk than you did.

I've got two 5/10 rated movies on my Worst of 2012 list and I like it that way. It just means I didn't waste too much time on terrible terrible movies.

I agree with the not so amazing Spiderman. It was just boring and the cast was horrible. Sam Rami's Spiderman movies were the best. Better cast, better story and better chemistry between Tobey and Kirstin. Worst film of 2012.

The Bourne Legacy - i actually liked it better than the other three... but eh.

but john carter and wrath of w.e were so horrible.. total recall was turned off half way through..
