Worst film of 2017

post #1 of 88
Thread Starter 

We're halfway through the year. So what's the worst film in 2017 so far for you?

 

For me, Resident Evil: Retribution and Fifty Shades Darker (How do you make porn so boring?).

post #2 of 88

Honestly (and probably due to the fact that I'm doing Navy shit) I haven't seen anything that's bad enough to be worst of 2017.

2017's output is surprisingly strong so far.

Top 5 worst of the year:

1. Transformers 5
2. Rock Dog
3. Book of Henry
4. Sandy Wexler
5. Fifty Shades Darker
post #5 of 88

I haven't seen Book of Henry yet, but until then, my pick goes the Netflix Original Handsome: A Netflix Mystery Movie, which was barely a movie.

I'll second HANDSOME. That was horrible.

Why did you watch at least four of these movies?

My friends and I do a monthly bad movie night. 

 

Though we doubled up last month for Transformers/Book of Henry.

... Rock Dog?!

"The Void" was shitty.
post #12 of 88

I do agree that 50 shades of grey is just girlish stuff to fantasize about yakkk

In my shitty list there is this "horror" Annabelle as well, very stupid and predictuble, like the 1st part.

post #13 of 88

Out of what I've seen, Dead Men Tell No Tales, hands down.

post #14 of 88

Either ALIEN COVENANT or THE MUMMY.

Yeah that was a big disappointment. The ending managed to rip off Prince of Darkness and The Beyond at the same time, which is quite a feat.

The cultits were creepy. I just wish they were in a better movie.

I'm pleased to say I haven't seen any new movies this year that I haven't liked! *insert big shiteating grin*
post #17 of 88
I totes forgot that Alien Covenant came out. That kinda stunk, too.
post #18 of 88

Well, I saw The Bye Bye Man, so I definitely have a pick. My runner ups are The Mummy and the Netflix original Coin Heist.

post #19 of 88

Of the ones I've seen so far, The Mummy is easily the worst. Just a flat, unexciting movie with little to recommend about it.

 

Films that weren't as awful, but still very disappointing:

 

All Eyez on Me - Decent cast, but flat filmmaking. The story of one of the greatest rappers of all time needed an A-list (or at least better than TV-movie) production crew to do it justice.

 

Alien Covenant - Better than Prometheus and Fassbender still delivers, but overall, meh.

Thanks to CHUD i've stayed away from the following films this year - The Dark Tower, Geostorm, The Mummy, Pirates 5, American Assassin, Wish Upon, Flatliners.

 

Come to think of it my bad movie diet in 2017 has been surprisingly light.

 

P.S - Is King Arthur: Legend of the Sword worth a watch?

post #21 of 88
I've managed to avoid some real dogs too, thanks to y'all.

I did see Covenant, hoping that it would at least be fun to pick on in the Post-Release. It didn't even manage to be that. It's just a forgettable movie.
post #22 of 88

I haven't seen anything really BAD theatrically this year.  At worst, there have been some forgettable misfires (GHOST IN THE SHELL, ALIEN: COVENANT, THE MUMMY) but nothing really awful.  As I mentioned earlier, the worst thing that I saw was HANDSOME on Netflix...avoid avoid avoid.

post #23 of 88

Handsome still takes the cake as the worst, but the most disappointing movie this year was the sequel to Goon

post #24 of 88
Boo 2: A Madea Halloween by far, unless you want to restrict me to something I went to willingly. That would be Dark Tower.
post #25 of 88
"Transformers: The Last Jedi" was a letdown even with managed expectations.
post #26 of 88

"Kingsman: The Golden Circle" is closest to my rock bottom for me.  Most of the goodwill and charm from the first film was wasted within the first 30 minutes, and the rest of it just made me uncomfortable and anxious for it to be over.  Leatherface was pretty much the same.

post #27 of 88
I forgot all about Kingsman and Leatherface, and I saw them on their opening weekends! 2017 has to hold the record number of films that left me with movie amnesia.

"Brad, what did you do last weekend?"

"Uh, nothing*, I think."

*actually saw four theatrically released films
post #28 of 88
Transformers is the easy (and correct) answer, but The Mummy would be next worst, imo.
post #29 of 88
Mummy is a major letdown. I really wanted this Dark Universe thing to happen, but unfortunately, the filmmakers didn't.
post #30 of 88

Skimming the list of what's been released, I managed to avoid the worst ones in the theater. Mostly I caught up with them on video.

 

Worst of the worst:  King Arthur, Dark Tower

Really bad but with maybe 1 or 2 likable scenes:  Ghost in the Shell, Kong: Skull Island

Had it's heart in the right place, but still bad:  Life, Atomic Blonde

I managed to sit through it, even though it wasn't good at all:  Iron Man Homecoming, Cars 3, Transformers: Last Highlander

 

It's looking like Mummy won't even meet my low criteria for a morbid curiosity watch!

 

Fuck no, you can't make me watch it: Beauty and the Beast '17, Despicable Me 3, Pirates 5, Power Rangers

HOMECOMING?!

Get to fuck.
post #32 of 88

I forgot about Dark Tower.  Thanks, whiskey.

Sorry!

 

But hey, I liked Guardians 2 and Thor 3, and I was highly skeptical of those before they came out.

post #34 of 88
I'm with you on Homecoming, Reese. I sooo wanted to like it, but ended up just being bored by the whole affair.

post #36 of 88
Tom Holland in Civil War?

So good.

Siri-man hijinks?

Just...Ugh.
post #37 of 88
SpiderMan was one of my favorites this year.

Worst would be Covenant, Dark Tower, Life, and Kong. I would throw Wonder Woman in the list, bus seeing as how I turned it off halfway and didn’t bother finishing it I can’t really in good faith add it.
post #38 of 88

Skipped so many bad movies this year.  I'd nominate Transformers, but to be fair I didn't actually see it, so.  Did see the final Resident Evil film - such a let down, and filmed with the hated shaky-cam.

post #39 of 88

Although Alien: Covenant came close, it's an easy call. Kingsman: The Golden Circle.

 

Offensive in how it treats those of us who dug The Secret Service with its slap-in-the-face treatment to death, mortality and thus stakes. Two characters who were dead with a capital D return for The Golden Circle. Yet has the nerve to sell the death of a major character here with a straight face after they've shown how inconsequential "dying" in this franchise is. 

 

But mostly taking the key criticism of the original (the juvenile humor) and amping it to 11. Having your hero plant a tracking device up a girl's vagina is repulsive. On a skin-crawling "Who the fuck approved this" level. If Michael Bay did this, God damn would the Internet and the SJW crowd have grown tumors. But because Vaughn is still considered a favorite, it got a free-pass.

 

When Channing Tatum dancing for 10 seconds and an extended Elton John cameo are the highlights of your big two-and-a-half hour sequel, you know you're in trouble. Fuck Vaughn, fuck this movie.

post #40 of 88
Kingsman was offensively long, I thought.
post #41 of 88

But Kingsmen 2 ended the war on drugs, so the length was justified.

no it didn't

 

 

unless your definition of 'free-pass' is very different from mine?

Transformers actually didn't bother me as it should. The plot is just nonsense of course but the sounds of all those explosions just soothed me to sleep.

Didn't see much outrage on Social Media (and you know how that crowd won't shut up 'till you know they're offended) or overload of think-pieces.

post #45 of 88

I dunno.

 

I saw them and heard them.

 

I think it got a bit muffled by the fact that Vaughn had already stepped in it with the first movie and this was mostly taken as Vaughn being Vaughn again, 

 

and the movie was kinda whatever, so it kinda passed by because it didn't feel as fresh as the first movie

 

But I don't think Vaughn got a free pass because he's everyone's favorite.  If that were the case, he wouldn't have been grumbling about BLOODY FEMINISTS for the reaction to the first movie's joke at the end.

post #46 of 88
My picks:

Worst adaptation: The Dark Tower
Worst remake: The Mummy
Worst movie I refused to watch: Book of Henry, Bayformers 5
Worst waste of potential: King Arthur: Legend of the Sword
Worst movie I didn’t watch because the first one was (one sequence aside) just as awful: Kingsman The Golden Circle.
Worst movie that actually ended up pretty good and entertaining, considering what was expected: Justice League.
post #47 of 88
Kingsman 2 was a good choice for worst film of the year. That probe up the vagina scene was gross on a whole other level. Some runners up...

Bad Moms Christmas
Boss Baby: Actually impressed with their commitment to the world building. It's crappy world building but I respect the effort.

Emoji Movie: Still processing how this got made.
post #48 of 88

The Dark Tower. Hands down, without fail an utterly irredeemable piece of crap. Nothing remotely like the source material, flat dull performances, wasting Idris Elba. The hell with this movie

post #49 of 88

Dark Tower gets my vote as well. 

 

Is no good. 

post #50 of 88
How Transformers (even one of the more head scratching ones) getting called the WORST OF THE YEAR....especially when something like The Dark Tower (and that's pushing it) is lurking around out there. Covenent as well. I envy those that live such interesting lives that some solidly cool movies are just hand waved away. It seems kinda silly that it takes something like Fury Road or Logan for people to not decry it as the death of cinema.

Scratch that....my vote is Flatliners. Poor Ellen Page. Such a cutie. My future wife in that imaginary land in my head where she's not happily in a relationship with a girlfriend frown.gif
