Top 10 Worst Movies of 2016

Not all the movies I saw were amazing, but these 10 movies should never be watched again

I love watching movies, and I love reviewing movies, but when the movies are this terrible, then it’s no longer fun. I saw some pretty bad movies and these are the bottoms of the filmmaking barrel. These are the movies that I wanted to walk out of the theaters but sadly did not. I endured these films, and now I’m here to tell you which movies to avoid next time you decide to watch a movie.

Dishonorable Mentions:

10. Now You See Me 2

The first one was bad. The second isn’t any better. Now You See Me 2 uses mindless magic that aims for shocking and settles for stupidity. Not one magic trick in this movie is real, and it shows. The final “magic” trick is so over the top, and it leaves the film feeling like a huge waste of time.

9. It’s Only The End Of The World

The only movie to make my most disappointing movies list and my worst movie list, It’s Only The End Of The World is confusing, pretentious and lazily shot. The over-reliance on close-ups fails on multiple levels, and it wastes its incredible cast.

8. Pride Prejudice and Zombies

Based off the best selling book, Pride Prejudice and Zombies fails to become cinematic. When adapting something that has been done better, rely on the thing that differentiates it from its predecessor. Here, it’s the action scenes which are poorly shot and almost non-existent.

7. The Forest

January horror movies are never good. The Forest fits perfectly in that category. The famous Japanese suicide forest could make a great horror movie, but here the terrible twist and rushed final act leaves The Forest feeling hollow.

6. The Purge: Election Year

For the third Purge franchise, the third time was not the charm. Election Year was silly, over the top and it failed to capitalize on an okay sequel. If they do another one of these, being subtle goes a long way.

5. Shut In

Another horror movie with a terrible twist. Noami Watts disappoints in a rather great year for horror films. Shut In starts off confused, not knowing where to go, and eventually becomes just another boring horror movie about people investigating strange sounds.

4. Careful What You Wish For

Generic, flat and predictable, Careful What You Wish For is that mediocre teen thriller no one asked for. Nick Jonas tries his best while Isabelle Lucas gives a cartoonish and sexist performance. The forced symbolism and – again- horrible twist ending makes you want to forget that you even watched this.

3. When The Bough Breaks

Following in the footstep of The Perfect Guy, When The Bough Breaks is just another attempt to take your money. Everything has been done better elsewhere hence the uselessness of this movie. I could have done without seeing this one.

2. The Fifth Wave

The YA movies are slowly dying out. Divergent has official die and now The Fifth Wave failed to make a compelling story. Actually, they made a very very atrocious movie. There is a lot of terrible twist in my worst of list, but The Fifth Wave tops the list. It was such a poorly placed twist that it officially flushed away an already shitty movie.

1. God’s Not Dead 2

No, you cannot get sued for saying”Jesus” in the classroom. But God’s Not Dead 2 would have you believe that. Everything in this movie is what I don’t want in my religious films. Agenda driven, God’s Not Dead 2 paints the false picture that Christians in the United States are persecuted. Top that absurdity with cheesy performances, poor story-telling and you have the worst movie of 2016.

    My worst movie of 2016 is definitely God’s Not Dead 2, too. Well said!

        By not addressing these issues ages ago or now, what you are going to see is a mssive push back by the indigenous Europeans, and its not going to be pretty. Exit Question: Will the Leftist media treat them as a hagard indigenous people whose rights, culture, and way of life are being trampled on, or will they be called Natil?Rhezoricas, of course.
