Top 10 worst movies 2019

Notes: Well, even though it didn’t turn out to be one of Sandler’s worst movies, it still turned out to be one of his laziest. The best example would be how, out of the blue, the main character decided to go on a trip in Europe with his wife. I mean, sure, they didn’t seem to be poor but they definitely didn’t have the financial means to take such a sudden trip. Then, even if Adam Sandler and Jennifer Anniston have been friends apparently for years, they didn’t really have much chemistry as a couple. Furthermore, it didn’t help that if Sandler was rather believable as a loser police officer (not exactly a huge challenge for him though), Anniston was not convincing at all as a blue-collar hairdresser. Concerning the plot itself, well, like most movies involving Sandler, I don’t think it was such a bad concept but, unfortunately, it was again so poorly developed. Basically, it felt like some kind of weak mix of a Cluedo game and an Agatha Christie mystery novel. Indeed, to parody a genre which is already rather silly to start with like the mystery novel is rather tricky and the makers here just failed miserably. Seriously, all the characters were just rather tedious and most of the jokes were lame.

Notes: Well, that’s not with this movie that McG will improve his poor reputation, that’s for sure. I guess it might be slightly more enjoyable for kids around 12 years but I was just bored by the damned thing. In fact, I always hated summer camps so the concept actually some potential but, unfortunately, they chose such a boring and generic approach. On top of that, the CGI was pretty ugly and it wasn’t much better than what you would get from a ‘Resident Evil’ video-game but that wasn't even the biggest issue here. Indeed, to make things worse, all the kids involved were just pretty weak, except for the black boy who was not bad but he wasn’t helped by the fact that his character was very often rather obnoxious. And what was the deal with these Chinese girl?!? I mean, she was very cute but, if I understand correctly, she was an orphan who came all the way to the US to join some summer camp but Why? And how did she get the money for such a journey? Maybe I did miss something but, to be honest, I don’t really care.

Notes: Well, as usual with Netlix original films, it wasn't really good, I'm afraid, but, at least, it was a disposable thriller. The most interesting thing was the fact that it was written and directed by a woman and that the main characters were all played by some women. But above all, I was once again impressed by Rapace. Indeed, even though the material was rather weak, she gave once again another intense and fierce performance and, of course, by now, you could call it type-casting but she did a fine job and, without her, the whole thing would have been pretty terrible. Indeed, the rest of the cast was rather underwhelming, even Sophie Nélisse was rather weak and it would have been much more entertaining if Rapace had someone stronger to play her 'client'. Anyway, the biggest issue was with the story itself though. Indeed, even though it had some potential, it turned to be just seriously generic and predictable. I mean, it's fine that these women get such an opportunity but if they are going to deliver something as weak as any guy could do than it is just a huge waste.

Notes: Eventually, it is quite sad to see that Tim Burton is still struggling to finally come up with something new and it is rather difficult to believe that, 20 years ago, he used to be one of the most interesting directors in the business. Anyway, coming back to the movie itself, well, it was a decent watch but not much more than that, I'm afraid. The biggest issue was that the original animated movie was really short so, obviously, they had to expand it somehow. Unfortunately, even if it could have been an opportunity to come up with something new and interesting, they basically kept repeating the same thing over and over again. Furthermore, I didn't mind that they focused this time around on the human characters but they were all rather boring. For example, it was pretty neat to see Michael Keaton working again with Burton and he obviously had some fun but his character was just rather tedious. Finally, even though they needed to expand it, a running time of 110 mins was just way too long for such a simple tale.

Notes: To be honest, I really struggled to care about the damned thing. First of all, I have to admit that I didn't remember much what happened in the previous installment but the plot was rather confusing. Above all, the damned thing was supposed to be dealing with some huge monsters destroying everything so it should have been some brainless fun entertainment but the tone was just so serious and it got on my nerves how they constantly tried to give some rational explanation about the ridiculous events going on. Then, even if the cast was really neat, there was just way too many human characters involved, there wasn't enough time to develop any ot them and none of them was really interesting or entertaining. Anyway, I have to admit that Gozilla and the other monsters were seriously badass, especially Ghidorah, so, at least, the damned thing was really spectacular.

Notes: Sure, I have to admit it, the animation was fine but I didn't think it was really entertaining. Once again, you had some bad guys trying to destroy the dragons and, once again, you had some good guys trying to protect them and it all felt rather generic to me. It's too because the whole thing definitely had a darker edge than your usual DreamWorks production but it was unfortunately toned down to make sure it would still attract families with young kids. In fact, I actually figured out what bothered me the most with this franchise and I think it was actually Hiccup. It's not that he was such an awful main character, he did have a rather lame name though, it's just that the guy was just so bland and, as a result, I thought he was actually rather boring. At least, the conclusion was pretty neat but that was hardly enough as far as I was concerned. Anyway, even though I will probably never understand the appeal of this franchise, I have to admit that this final installment was not bad.

Notes: Well, unfortunately, even though it was still a decent watch, I’m afraid it still turned out to be J.C. Chandor's weakest movie so far. The biggest issue I had was that, even though I have to admit that I didn’t know anything about the plot before watching this flick, the damned thing still turned out to be so generic. I mean, by now, the whole concept of a team of a special forces operatives planning a heist has been done many times before and this movie didn’t provide anything really new to the genre. At least, Chandor ‘s directing was once again really solid, the whole thing looked really convincing and there was such a really neat cast involved (Ben Affleck, Oscar Isaac, Charlie Hunnam, Garrett Hedlund, Pedro Pascal). Another thing that I did appreciate about his group was that there was no backstabbing involved. Eventually, even though their characters were actually barely developed, they all made the most of it and, with a slightly more original story, it could have been actually pretty damned amazing.

Notes: After this movie had turned out to a commercial and critical flop, I had pretty much lost all interest in the damned thing but Nick, my step-son was still quite eager to check it out. Well, to be honest, I thought it was actually not so bad at all after all. I mean, sure, it was still a rather pointless sequel/reboot and the fact that I had such low expectations probably helped me appreciate more this flick than it actually deserved but, still, in my opinion, it was actually fairly entertaining. Indeed, while I was watching the damned thing, I remembered how much I had a weak spot for this franchise and they did a decent job to keep the same vibe. However, even if Chris Hemsworth was quite fun and made a solid duo with Tessa Thompson, they never reached the awesome chemistry displayed by Will Smith and Tommy Lee Jones. Furthermore, the makers are apparently stuck repeating over an over the same formula which is basically that our planet is facing some Alien threat and the Men In Black have to stop it somehow and, after 4 movies, it has become rather tiresome and repetitive.

Notes: Before this movie was released, there was a nice buzz but after reading a massively negative review on Indiewire, I became rather cautious and even slightly worried. Well, eventually, maybe this review did lower my expectations but, to be honest, I don't think it was so bad as the guy from Indiewire claimed it to be. Of course, like 90% of this Disney live-adaptations, it was still completely unnecessary and probably even more misguided than usual though. I mean, the animation looked amazing but to see some animated talking animals has always been rather annoying and when they are really photo-realistic like here, well, it is even more cringe-inducing. Concerning the story itself, I have to admit that, in spite of its massive reputation, I have never been a huge fan of the original version to start with and since this version was about 95% identical, well, I still didn't care much for it. At least, Timon and Pumbaa completely stole the show once again, Billy Eichner and Seth Rogen were just pitch-perfect and I wish the whole thing would have been about them instead of these rather boring lions.

Notes: Even though the material was quite fascinating , unfortunately, I didn’t really get the approach they chose. I mean, you can assume that the idea was to tell this story from Liz Kendall’s point of view which wasn’t a bad idea but it didn’t really work, I’m afraid. Indeed, during the 2nd half, pretty much right after the first trial, Kendall took her distance from Bundy and, for the rest of the movie, she was barely involved, except for getting drunk on her coach and follow the news on her TV. Furthermore, the way they handled Ted Bundy was also rather odd. Basically, you never see him doing anything really truly reprehensible and they focused more on his escapes and some of his trials and fairly often, some of the arguments made by the accusation were actually rather dodgy. As a result, you start wonder if he might have been innocent somehow but, to be honest, I’m not sure that it was what the makers really wanted to achieve here. I think that the idea was to make Ted Bundy look more ambiguous but it was like trying to convince us that Hannibal Lecter was actually a vegetarian. Still, it doesn’t mean that it was a bad movie, far from it. Indeed, it was still a spellbinding story and I was really impressed by Zac Efron who easily gave here his best performance so far.
