Top 10 Worst Films Of 2016

2016 was a rough year for numerous reasons and it was certainly no prize for the world of cinema either. Sure, there were stand-outs (the best of list will be coming soon), but there were plenty of films that were downright painful to endure. While I was fortunate enough to avoid several of the films critics and audiences despised such as “Zoolander 2,” “Gods of Egypt,” and “Independence Day: Resurgence,” I still saw and reviewed plenty of stinkers. The 10 films listed below were the ones that personally crushed me the most. On with the list!

  1. Batman: Killing Joke- When adapting a comic, this is a prime example of what not to do. A truly disgraceful take on Alan Moore’s classic graphic novel.
  1. Cell- There’s a reason this slop didn’t get a major theatrical release. It is arguably the worst Stephen King adaptation to date.
  1. Blair Witch- When it was announced that “The Woods” was a secret third Blair Witch film I was genuinely intrigued. To me, this was a horror franchise that had so much storytelling potential. Unfortunately, all of that potential was lost with this scare-free installment due to the unlikable characters, nonsensical mythology, the non Burkittsville location shooting, and rehashed story elements.
  1. High-Rise- Pretentious drivel.
  1. Dirty Grandpa- Why Robert DeNiro? Why?
  1. Exposed- Behind-the-scenes problems aside, “Exposed” should be exposed for the poorly plotted movie that it is.
  1. The Other Side Of The Door- This is the definition of a horror movie in which characters do the dumbest things imaginable.
  1. The BFG- Yet another classic children’s story that has been expanded upon and ruined in cinematic form. Far and away Steven Spielberg’s worst film.
  1. Pee-Wee’s Big Holiday- 2016 was largely a bad year for franchise resurrections and this was one of the worst. Of all of the stories to tell, a horrifically unfunny bromance adventure story involving Joe Manganiello was the best that Paul Reubens and Paul Rust could come up with?
  1. Ghostbusters (2016)- Despite rocking a talented cast, writer/director Paul Feig is the one who drops the ball here with a forced and lazy script, infantile humor, and groan worthy callbacks.
