It’s that special time of year, when I purge on the worst movies of the past 12 months. The following movies are so bad, that I warned you all not to see them. Watch them at your own risk.
10.) “The Predator”
Another sequel to the Arnold Schwarzenegger Sci-Fi hit, this chose to be a lackluster comedy. And while the Predator keeps his cool, every other fine talent (Boyd Holbrook, Olivia Munn, and Sterling K. Brown) is wasted.
9.) “Mile 22”
The first loser for the fine duo of Mark Wahlberg and director Peter Berg left me in a tizzy with all this chaotic violence and mayhem, all crammed in 90 minutes. This wanted to start a franchise, that’s why.
8.) “Night School”
Tiffany Haddish gives a fun performance as Kevin Hart’s night school teacher, but this boring comedy had a bad choice of words and humor. I should have dropped out of this course, while I had the chance.
7.) “The Spy Who Dumped Me”
Who ever said Kate McKinnon was destined to be a comedy star? And who said this hokey pokey plot of her friend (the usually wonderful Mile Kunis) being dumped by her secret agent boyfriend would work? Not me!
One of the worst Dwayne Johnson-starring movies I’ve seen in recent memory, this video game-turned action hit wanted to be a B-movie. For all the chaotic violence, poor writing, and bad acting, I give it a D-.
5.) “Bohemian Rhapsody”
Queen is one of my favorite rock bands, but this biopic was one of the weakest I’ve ever seen. Despite Rami Malek’s remarkable performance as Freddie Mercury, this didn’t care about the other band members or the true inspiration. “Nothing really matters.”
Jeremy Renner broke his arms making this dreadful spoof on a true story about friends playing a cross country game of Tag. Given the mean-spirited humor, I wasn’t surprised to loathe it.
3.) “Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom”
I’m a big fan of the “Jurassic Park” franchise, but “Fallen Kingdom” was one of the most generic, brainless, and self-congratulatory sequels I’ve ever seen. Are we really gonna keep seeing the same dinosaurs do the same crap in every sequel?
Tom Hardy is aggravatingly wasted as both Eddie Brock and his creature counterpart Venom. This was Marvel’s first loser since “Fantastic Four” from 3 years ago, and yet, it made a profit.
1.) “The Happytime Murders”
Jim Henson would be spinning in his grave at what his son Brian has created-a mean-spirited, lazy, ugly, offensive, and pathetic raunchy comedy with fowl-mouthed puppets and Melissa McCarthy ruining herself as both the star and producer. The minute I saw the red band trailer, I knew it would be a box office bomb.
