Top 10 worst movies 2016

Sort by: Showing 10 items
Decade: Rating: List Type:


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: To be honest, I wasn’t interested in this movie but from all the movies I suggested to watch with Nick, my step-son, it was the only one he was really eager to see. Well, once again, I was just terribly bored by this damned franchise. First of all, even though they spend the first minutes reminding us what happened in the previous instalments, I was really struggling to remember what the hell happened in the previous movie which I saw about 6 years ago. Wasn't it taking place in the future? I also completely forgot that Theo James was also involved. Anyway, it was pretty much the same story, there is this big war between the Vampires and the Lycans and you have the super warrior Selene stuck in the middle. Seriously, how they manage to release 5 movies with this material is really beyond me. On top of that, all the new characters added this time around were not interesting or entertaining whatsoever. At least, Kate Beckinsale has recently claimed that she won’t be returning for yet another instalment so maybe we are finally done with this franchise.

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 is rather sad that Garry Marshall would end up a rather solid career with such a tedious trilogy around some holiday themed romantic-comedies and this movie was basically the weakest of the bunch. Indeed, right from the very first scene, you had a voice-over telling you how hard and exhausting it is to be a mother which must be one of the most annoying gimmicks in Hollywood comedies. On top of that, it is not even accurate. Seriously, if you would go back 60 or 70 years ago, mothers used to have 5 or 6 kids or even more but if you would believe these movies, to have 1 or 2 is apparently already a terrible and impossible ordeal. Anyway, as usual, the whole thing was just a bunch of terribly generic and predictable little stories and it was just rather boring from the beginning until the end. I mean, if they would take one of these stories and only focused on it, it might have worked better but even so, I'm not so sure.

Notes: To be honest, I have to admit that I was actually slightly better than the tedious previous installement. Indeed, it was actually pretty neat that Alice was going back to Racoon City and especially to the Hive, 16 years after the first instalment. Still, it doesn’t mean that it was a good movie, far from it I’m afraid. I mean, sure, after all these years, Milla Jovovich still looks really lovely and she still can kick some major ass but I wish I would see her doing something else after all these years. In fact, I was actually disappointed by the action scenes. It’s not that they were really bad, I was more bothered by the fact that they were rather poorly edited with some really annoying quick cuts. Seriously, as a result, some of the scenes were borderline unwatchable. Another thing that disappointed me was the supporting characters. For example, it was nice that Ruby Rose was added to the mix but her character was barely developed and the other characters were even less interesting. Anyway, even if this movie was not as bad as I expected, it was still pretty weak.

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.

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.

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.
