Top 10 worst movies 2018

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


Notes: After 'American Sniper' and 'Sully', Eastwood decided for the 3rd time in a row to tell another true tale about some other American heroes but, unfortunately, it turned out to be so terribly weak and not much better than the garbage you can see on the Lifetime channel. I mean, the first scenes dealing with the main characters when they were kids were not bad but they still didn't reach the level of something like 'Stand by Me'. Then, the actual guys who were involved during these events actually played themselves which wasn't a bad idea and I don't think they did such a terribly bad job but the whole thing started to become rather abysmal at this point. Basically, they gave us a whole bunch of meaningless scenes with no entertaining or informative value and it seems, since the tragic event in the train would last only 15 mins, that they had to fill in the running time with something. The worst part was definitely when these guys went backpacking in Europe. Seriously, it felt like watching 'The Real World' from MTV or some other crappy reality TV program. At least, the scenes in the train did work but everything else was just so tedious and rather poorly put together.

Notes: In 2018, Netflix pulled off with this movie the biggest marketing stunt of the year. Indeed, during the Super Bowl, they finally released the first trailer but, above all, they announced that the movie would be directly available after the game which was something obviously never done before. Seriously, it was a genius move because it turned a rather weak feature into one of the most talked about movies over the year. Unfortunately, the day after this marketing stunt, pretty much everyone was universally complaining how lame this flick actually was and, indeed, it turned out to be pretty weak. I mean, they had the best cast ever seen in a Cloverfield feature (Gugu Mbatha-Raw, David Oyelowo, Daniel Brühl, Ziyi Zhang, Elizabeth Debicki) and the concept actually had some potential if it would have been properly developed. Basically, even though it could have been a thought provoking SF flick, it was just very lazily written giving us a succession of rather generic supposedly scary scenes. Some of them were not bad (like the one when they discover Elizabeth Debicki's character) but there was not one moment when any of the character said and did anything remotely interesting regarding the events they had to face. It was also really weak to add some crazy conspiracy theorist predicting exactly what would happen later on. At least, with 'Cloverfield' and '10 Cloverfield Lane', they left the viewers in the dark which was much more effective.

Notes: Unfortunately, I was amazed by how the underwhelming the damned thing turned out to be. Indeed, while 'Moon' was pretty much a flawless minimalistic science-fiction masterpiece, this movie was actually the opposite as it was seriously over ambitious and filled up with some poorly developed characters and a rather half-baked story with too much going on. Eventually, what bothered me the most were all these countless pointless scenes. I mean, for example, at some point the main character had to go to the library searching for the Berlin yellow pages books so he could find a phone number. Seriously, it is the freaking future, why didn't he look it up on the Internet? Of course, you could argue that it was what an Amish would do but he already used a smartphone and other modern devices during the movie. Finally, it wasn't a strong story but I don't feel like going into details explaining why.

Notes: Even though this movie turned out to be a massive critical and commercial flop, I was still curious to see if it was really so bad. Well, I have to agree that the damned thing was indeed pretty weak. Basically, it was supposed to be some kind of cute, whimsical and perhaps even inspiring tale but it just never worked. Indeed, it turned out to be basically a mix of really random and weird scenes. To make things worse, most of the dialogues was filled with some incomprehensible mambo-jambo involving some Camazotz, some tesseract and three mysterious misses who really came from nowhere. Seriously, after 15 minutes, I pretty much gave up trying to understand what the hell was going on and I hope the book made more sense. At least, I hoped it would be visually appealing and the first scenes were promising but, even in this area, it was still a failure and it has been a while since I have seen such an underwhelming overdose of CGI. At least, Storm Reid had some charisma and displayed some potential in spite of this poor material. But, above all, I felt bad for Ava DuVernay. Indeed, it was such a historical event that a black woman had the opportunity to direct such a big budget feature but she completely failed and I really hope she got another chance in the future since she is so talented.

Notes: Even though 'Pacific Rim' had a great concept and one of the most interesting directors at work nowadays, it turned out to be rather underwhelming and I was actually rather surprised that they still went for a sequel. As I expected, this sequel went by very quickly without making much waves at the box-office so I think we are pretty much done with this franchise. This time, Del Toro didn't even direct the damned thing so it was even less inspired and the story was just so convoluted. I mean, there were only a few Kaijus and they showed up only the 3rd act which was also rather disappointing. The only positive thing was that John Boyega was just really charismatic and managed single-handedly to make the whole thing at least watchable but it wasn't enough, I'm afraid.

Notes: Of course, the first issue with this movie was that Jon Favreau had released another version of this tale just a couple of years ago and the fact that this movie turned out to be a big critical and commercial success didn’t help either. Still, even without Disney’s recent retooling, I’m not sure that this version would have been much better received. First of all, even though the CGI was sometimes impressive, it was sometimes also rather weak. For example, Baloo, in fact Andy Serkis’s own character, was especially ugly. But, eventually, the biggest issue I had was this story. I mean, this tale is decent enough but, by now, I have seen so many versions and I think I’m pretty much done with it and even though this movie was supposed to be a darker version, at the end of the day, it was still about some talking animals so it didn’t become extremely dark or really original. Eventually, the only interesting thing was Mowgli’s struggle between the fact that he is a human and the fact that he grew with some wolves but, unfortunately, this interesting dilemma, never really explored before with this character, came just way too late and it could or should have been so much more developed.

Notes: Did we really need another sequel/spinoff from 'Ocean's Eleven'? Probably not but, at least, it was pretty neat that they came up this time with an all new female crew. Unfortunately, the damned thing still turned out to be terribly disappointing, I'm afraid. First of all, even if the cast was nice, I was still missing some other big names like Jennifer Lawrence, Emma Stone, Angelina Jolie, Meryl Streep, Susan Sarandon or Sigourney Weaver. To make things worse, the directing was terribly bland. Eventually, it's only after watching this movie that I understood how important was Steven Soderbergh for the success of the first installment. Indeed, it was full of energy, fun and witty and this new installment terribly missed all this. Another issue was that the story was rather boring and even the actual heist was disappointing. Seriously, I never had the feeling that I was watching some seasoned con artists and it felt more watching some girls playing thiefs.

Notes: To be honest, I actually had a rather hard time to really care for this flick. I mean, I always had a weak spot for Rupert Everett who was basically born to play this character and Oscar Wilde was one of the wittiest writers that ever lived so the whole thing definitely had some potential. In my opinion, the biggest mistake they made was to focus on the last years of Oscar Wilde's life and I still wonder why the makers thought they should focus on this specific time period. I mean, after William Shakespeare, Wilde must have been the most famous English writer that ever lived but, at the time, the guy had stopped to write and, instead, was basically drinking himself to death which was hardly entertaining to behold. In fact, instead of feeling sorry for Wilde, this movie had actually the reverse effect on me as I felt slightly mad at him because he could have lived in France with a low profile, trying to write some more but, apparently, he basically gave up and slowly killed himself which was obviously a huge waste.

Notes: Eventually, even though it was a decent watch, to be honest, it was only a slight improvement on 'Good Kill', 'The Host' and 'In Time'. Basically, while the concept was fairly interesting and extremely relevant today, it was nothing really groundbreaking and it seemed that it missed something to become really fascinating. Above all, a bigger issue was the fact that the whole thing was in fact rather boring. I mean, Amanda Seyfried, who was quite charming as usual, had a nice mysterious character but the main character played by Clive Owen was just not complex enough and a total bore to watch. Seriously, they had to go for the old gimmick of the divorced detective grieving for his dead child?!? That was just some really lazy writing, just like the fact that, in this mix of science-fiction with a film noire, this detective had to have sex with this femme fatale at some point. At least, the 3rd act wasn't completely lame but it still turned out to be pretty weak after all.

Notes: It is rather sad that such a movie is considered to be one of the ‘best’ original movies delivered by Netflix so far this year. It’s not that it was really weak like ‘Mute’, ‘Anon’ or ‘The Cloverfield Paradox’, it was actually a fairly decent romantic-comedy, the point is that it was still nothing really amazing whatsoever. Indeed, first of all, the whole concept was pretty weak but it’s apparently something inherent to the genre nowadays and I can’t remember the last time I saw a romantic-comedy without a seriously far-fetched idea. Then, it was rather disappointing that they gave such a negative view on being a personal assistant. By now, it has become such a boring cliché and it would be more interesting to show why so many people are doing this kind of job which seems more humiliating than really fulfilling. And, yet, the whole thing was still fairly entertaining mostly thanks to Zoey Deutch and Glen Powell. Indeed, they both gave some solid performances, they were both really charming and they had some great chemistry together. Seriously, if they would have dumped the whole set-up thing and just focused on these 2 characters falling in love, it could have been actually really good.
