Top 10 worst movies 2016

Notes: Only a couple of weeks ago, Kevin Spacey was still regarded as one of the best American actors from the last 20 years but, overnight, he turned out to be a major sexual creep and many are predicting that his career is now pretty much over. On the other hand, considering Spacey’s latest movie choices, it seems that the guy himself actually didn’t really care anymore and this movie was a perfect example. I can imagine that when Kevin Spacey read this script, he knew from the start that it was some garbage but he also knew that he would only have to show up for a couple of scenes and do some voice-over work for the cat for the rest of the movie so he basically went for the easy money. Considering the movie itself, it was just such a misguided concept. Indeed, the body-swap is an old gimmick which has never been really interesting even when it was something new and this movie certainly didn’t add anything worthwhile to this concept. Eventually, the whole thing was just so boring and it was a big waste of time.

Zoolander 2 (2016)


Notes: To be honest, I really didn't like 'Zoolander' at all so I didn't expect much from this sequel but since this movie was available on Netflix, I thought I might as well check it out. Well, pretty much as I expected, it turned out to be seriously lame and I'm not surprised at all that it was such a commercial and critical flop when it was released. Seriously, pretty much nothing worked. Of course, you could argue that I never thought that Derek Zoolander was actually a funny character, even in the previous installment, but the whole thing was just boring and usually rather cringe-inducing to behold. Apparently, the whole point was to show how Derek Zoolander and Hansel could fit in our modern world but they kept adding layers upon layers of idiotic sub-plots which of course didn't work at all.

The Last Face (2016)


Notes: When this movie was released, it turned out to be a huge critical flop but I still wanted to check it out anyway. Unfortunately, I'm afraid that the damned thing really deserved its poor reputation. Seriously, pretty much nothing worked in this movie. Indeed, first of all, they made the usual mistake of dealing with Africa and yet still only focusing on 2 Western characters. I mean, except for one doctor with a very small part, the Africans were only limited to either helpless victims or monstrous psychopaths with barely any dialogue whatsoever. Then, the directing was also surprisingly weak and also terribly pretentious. I mean, they criticized the whole Western world for not caring but they still managed to waste more than half the running time with a completely generic love story involving two white doctors. At least, Javier Bardem was a very good choice as he was charismatic without being too handsome and he did what he could with this material. I wish I could say the same for Charlize Theron who was as usual insanely gorgeous but her good looks actually worked against her and, to make things worse, she gave here one of her weakest performances ever.

Notes: First of all, I have to admit that I always had a weak spot for 'Ice Age'. Indeed, it was a nice little animated feature and it mostly worked because it didn't pretend or have the ambition to be something else and the concept worked fine but, in my opinion, it was something too limited to be really expanded. Surprisingly, Blue Sky still managed to turn it into a hugely successful franchise but the sequels all turned out to be rather weak and this last installment was easily the weakest of the bunch. Indeed, by now, the makers were seriously running out of ideas so they gave an even more preposterous storyline than usual. As a result, you end up with Scrap, still by far their best character, going into space with a spaceship which was more ridiculous than actually entertaining. Another issue with this franchise is that they keep adding so many characters, most of them barely interesting or fun, and by now the whole thing has become just so over-crowded.

Notes: Well, it turned out to be pretty terrible and I'm not surprised that it is, according to the IMDB ratings, the worst movie delivered by Kevin Smith so far. I mean, I already had a hard time to care for 'Tusk' but this was even weaker. It's too bad because the beginning with these 2 bored teenage girls working in a convenient store, pretty much like in 'Clerks', was actually quite promising. Indeed, real life BFFs Harley Quinn Smith and Lily-Rose Depp had some nice chemistry together. Above all, Johnny Depp's daughter was seriously charismatic and I'm really curious to see what she will do in the future. Unfortunately, pretty much everything else was just some garbage. Seriously, it is rather difficult to understand what Kevin Smith is getting at with his Canadian horror trilogy. Indeed, it seems that it was conceived mostly to please the fans of his podcast but I'm not sure that the rest of the world really cares. Anyway, the concept in ‘Tusk’ was already rather difficult to swallow but, here, this whole idea of these Nazi sausages was just awful.

Trolls (2016)


Notes: Is it me or are the concepts developed by DreamWorks Animation becoming only more and more lame? Seriously, to make a movie about these dolls was just a terrible idea and, yet, it was still apparently quite successful at the box-office. Anyway, I still didn't care much for the damned thing. I mean, except for their goofy hair, the characters didn't even really look like the dolls but, at least, I have to admit that the animation was not bad and some of the other characters were actually pretty neat. Another thing that bothered me was that, except for one new hit song from Justin Timberlake, they only recycled some old hits which was rather lazy in my opinion. Finally, the biggest problem with this flick was probably that the story was just so derivative and boring.

People who added this item 61 Average listal rating (49 ratings) 5.2 IMDB Rating 5.1


Notes: Well, except for Kevin Smith, I had never heard of the other directors involved in this project but, to be honest, I don't think I will do my best to look up what they have done before or afterwards as I wasn't really impressed with what they displayed here. Indeed, even though the first and last stories were watchable ('Valentine's Day' and 'New Year's Eve'), everything else was just too weak and/or too weird. The weirdest parts were 'St Patrick's Day' and especially 'Easter' which gave us a really creepy and misguided mix of the Easter Bunny and Jesus. Concerning the segment delivered by Kevin, it was not bad but it was the only story which had really nothing to do with this specific holiday and the only link was that it was taking place during Halloween which was rather disappointing.

Notes: Following the footsteps of Kristen Stewart, Jennifer Lawrence and Shailene Woodley, Chloë Grace Moretz decided she should also have her own franchise based on a Young Adult novel, which wasn't really a bad decision career-wise. The only point was that the whole thing turned out to be pretty weak, I'm afraid. However, I don't thing that Moretz should be really blamed though. I mean, she was really charismatic and she did what she could with this material but there was not much that could be really done. Basically, the main thing that bothered me, except for the many plot-holes, was the lack of development of the characters. And, of course, even though the damned thing I might have some potential, it turned out to be just seriously boring.

Gods of Egypt (2016)


Notes: Even though this movie was one of my highest priorities for 2016, it turned out to be a huge commercial and critical failure but I still wanted to check it out since I'm a big fan of Alex Proyas. Unfortunately, this movie turned out be indeed a massive disappointment. I mean, the whole thing looked really neat but, unfortunately, pretty much nothing else really worked in this movie. First of all, this movie received some big criticism for whitewashing the characters but I don’t really believe in this argument. Indeed, in my opinion, it is really naive to think that they could release such a blockbuster with some unknown Egyptian or Arab actors. So, even though the ethnicity of the actors was not really the issue here, it doesn’t change the fact that the cast was actually rather weak. Aside from the cast, the story was also really underwhelming. I mean, the whole thing about the prince who needs to fight against his uncle to get back his throne has been done to death by now and usually way better than in this movie.

Notes: Even though I didn’t have some huge expectations, I thought this movie still turned out to be seriously underwhelming. What bothered me the most was how fake it was. Seriously, they started the damned thing with a visually ambitious introduction with a terribly fake pigeon. Then, the whole thing took place in one restaurant, which wasn’t really a bad idea, but it was so obvious that the damned thing was just a movie set, it was just so unconvincing. Then, even though it took place in a restaurant, they never displayed any cooking, or at least, one of the dishes, reinforcing the general fake feeling. To make things worse, except for one awesome scene involving Lies Visschedijk ordering a very expensive wine bottle, all the characters were just so boring. At least, Georgina Verbaan did look lovely in her blue dress and I think she did what she could but this material was just really poor.
