Top 10 worst films of 2013
In order to appreciate the good movies we get it’s only right that we honor the bad one.
Oh and before I make this tis list I should point out that I don’t consider these to be real movies
. Grown ups 2
. The Smurfs 2.
.Scary movie 5
.The starving games
That’s because a film has to at least have some level of quality to it and I don’t think that anyone working on the above films said to themselves “Oh yeah this is going to be great, I can’t wait till people watch this and enjoy themselves.”
10. Kick Ass 2.
A watered down sequel with very little of the charm that made the original so great.
The dialog sucks, the plot is all over the place, and Jim Carry is the only actor who even tries to make this a fun film.
A sub par sequel that nobody wanted. Extremely annoying main cast that doesn't grow on you. Uninteresting side characters, a plot that takes forever to get in motion even though theoretically it shouldn't take more than 15 minutes. How the hell can people call this quality entertainment? It's mediocre at best. All the cameos in the world appearing at the end couldn't stop this film from being barley mediocre.
8. The Hunger Games Catching Fire.
A sequel that does nothing to enhance the plot until the last 5 minutes. The fact that people had to pay money for the same movie twice is ridiculous. The set up is the same, the risk is the same. The movie had a good chance to capitalize on the book by adding in one of Cadnice's friends who's leg was missing. Instead they replaced that character from the book with an old women who doesn't speak and dies almost instantly when the hunger games begins. Also the writing is so laughably bad that I almost had to leave the theaters so as I didn't disturb anyone while I chuckled. Like for one instance the characters get sprayed by a poison that causes lesions to grow on their body and the only way to remove it is with water. Water, seriously the cure for this deadly virus is the most abundant resource on the planet. If that's true then what about the water molecules in the air that we breath wouldn't that cure them too. The ending is a plot contrivance if I ever saw one. Cadnice almost dies and the good guys take advantage of this to rescue her by impersonating an enemy ship. So in order for the plot to make any sense at all the good guy knew that the main character would almost die at the end of the movie so that they could secretly rescue her while pretending to be a body disposal ship. If I didn't know any better I'd think that this was a parody of the hunger games but we already have two ( The Starving games, and The Hungover games.)
7.Turbo. A movie about a snail with super speed... What could possibly go wrong. Okay I saw this movie for free at a mini golf center/Arcade. I had some time to kill with my friends and I thought Okay it's a harmless movie made by Dreamworks. The movie is so juvenile and so ridden with plot conveniences. I could get past all that though if it entertained me, but it didn't.
6.Fruitville Station. While no wear near as bad as some of the other films on this list this one makes it on pure principle. The fact that someone can make a movie with such low quality camera work and still have it praised makes me as a movie critic just pissed off. Seriously half the time I was watching this thing it looked like somebody stuck a dirty fish tank up to the camera lens. The only reason why this film got so much critical praise was because of its subject matter not its quality. Which is a shame because when a good movie with the subject matter of black oppression came out (12 years a slave) I was almost hesitant to watch it. I guess the motto is “why bother putting actual effort into something if the subject matter alone is enough to make it sell.”
5. After Earth. Will Smith's lowest rated movie, and deserving so. Asking me to describe the chemistry between will smith' character and his son is like asking me to describe that scene in Ghost Busters where the Ghost Busters take control of the State Puff Marsh mellow man and use him to fight off the army of darkness and Zuuls minions. It didn't happen.
Abysmal writing and focus on a narrative, not to mention earth looks like a prehistoric wasteland. Seriously it's called “After Earth” where are all the buildings the remnants of society, anything to make this movie entertaining.
4. The incredible Burt Wonder Stone. A dumb movie about two stage magicians who get out shined by a street performer. This movie could have been good if it followed Jim Carrie. Seriously why wasn’t this movie mainly about him. If this movie focused on a street performer who went against the convention of magic it could have been awesome. Instead we are left with a stupid movie who's only saving grace is Carrie's performance, and he doesn't get that much screen time. I mean he's an excellent actor, and he does his best. This year though it seems as though he's being held down and severely underplayed. Between this and Kick Ass 2 2013 was not a good year for Jim Carrie at the movies.
3.Carrie. I already wrote a review on this one no need to harp on it.
2. 47 Ronin. I believe I described this movie once as a mix of Hollywood nepotism and lord of the rings fan fiction. I still stand by what I wrote.
1 A good day to Die Hard A.K.A A good day to ruin a franchise.
Bad Horror movies are one thing, bad comedies are one thing. When you take what is arguably the greatest action movie franchise and turn it this you've done what hundreds of terrorists failed to do. You've killed john McClain. Everything about this movie is wrong. The action is wrong, the camera work is wrong the fight scenes are wrong. Seriously no hand to hand combat? This is quite possibly the worst action movie to be made in the past five years. I liked 2007's live free or die hard. It was fun it was action pact the plot made sense the situation had weight. None of these things can be said for the
abomination that was 2013's A Good Day To Die Hard.
Do you agree with this list? What are your least favorite films of the previous year?
