HERE. It absolutely pains me to put this on this list. I love Tim Burton dearly, and I very much wanted to adore this film....but it's a mess. Everyone in the film is better than this, which is why I feel like it was such a let down. Yes it had a few elements that made it stand out from other films; as with any other Burton film, it was definitely visually interesting...Problem here is that the sum wasn't more than its parts.
the unwanted sibling of Psycho it's ridiculous... You know a movie has struck comedy gold when a character finds a box of tampons in the trash and it's meant to be a sinister moment. [/SPOILER] But, I must say I did jump a few times and the cast was actually trying here, unlike the other horror film on the list....
HERE. Even if this is based off of a true story, the Hollywood version of this plot is down right ridiculous. Sorry Rachel McAdams, you have no ones sympathy. You pretty much struck the best deal in the world (and this is coming from a non-Tatum fan) and live to complain about it. I find it hard to believe that any girl wouldn't be a little psyched at waking up in her situation. Yeah it would be a huge change but when you have Mr. Devoted with you it couldn't be all that bad. I do get that the film is trying to say that our life experiences make us who we are, but it says it in a very inelegant and predictable way (unlike say Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind.) Plus the ending kinda sucked.
HERE Nicholas Sparks you've done it again! [SPOILER] death by treehouse must have been one of your finest plot twists yet. I can just imagine how proud he must have been writing that! [/SPOILER] This film is awful and relies on nothing but Zac Efron's charm (which he admittedly has) and cliche after cliche (the real problem...among other things.) Sparks, you have nothing new or interesting to say. Please leave Hollywood. And has anyone noticed that Safe Haven looks like the exact same movie??
everyone dies.[/SPOILER] THE END....without ever explaining a single dang thing. Why introduce all these plot threads and ideas and never explain their purpose? This film looks like a victim of very bad editing....but even so, there isn't a good movie to be found anywhere within this footage. Still...it might have gone a long way. Oh and as for the picture, I guess you should ALWAYS search the house in lingerie whenever you hear something scary. Might as well look sexy if you're gonna be attacked right? At least it wasn't very revealing haha.
And the #1 spot goes to.......
1. Battleship - Original review found HERE Oh what a painful viewing experience this was. Haha it was probably worse for other people named Ben, who had to sit through me and Courtney (and occasionally Amelia when she wasn't asleep..) complaining the whole way through...but really this film was absolutely awful. No personality or depth to a single character. The "action" sequences were headache inducing and the plot was just ridiculous. No question that this was the absolute worst film I saw last year. I think I pretty much died 10 minutes in....in fact, a little part of me died with that film...and I'm not sure I will ever get it back.
Well that's all folks! Do you agree? Which ones did you see that were the worst.
