Fire with Fire (2012)
Note : Somehow, the damned thing managed to be even weaker than I expected. First of all, even though Willis was displayed prominently on all the promotional material, in fact, he had a rather minor part which could have been easily removed or played by any third-rate actor so, like for most of his recent work, it was obviously another pay-check gig for him. Then, in spite of its title and the fact that the main character was a fireman, this movie had actually not much to do with firefighting which was rather disappointing. Instead, it was another tedious thriller dealing with some average guy going into the witness protection program. Seriously, the material was just so generic but, in the last act, it became even worse when the main character decided to go after the bag guys all by himself. Basically, it was just so ridiculous and completely lame. At least, the always dependable Vincent D'Onofrio did deliver another solid performance playing some psychopath but he probably should have used his talent for something more worthwhile.
Resident Evil: Retribution (2012)
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.
Underworld: Awakening (2012)
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.
Columbus Circle (2012)
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.
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'.
The Devil Inside (2012)
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.
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, it also never really takes place in this movie either which was just so lame.
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.
