Most Disappointing Movies of 2012


The Top Ten

1 Total Recall
2 John Carter

Conan the Barbarian in outer space? That's so awkward!

3 Dark Shadows
4 Taken 2

I am not voting for this because it is the worst movie on the list, because it definitely isn't. I actually liked this movie and many others here were NOT good. I voted for this movie because I loved the first one so much that I had very high expectations for the sequel. While still good, it was basically just a rehash of the first movie and not all I hoped for.

5 The Bourne Legacy

I didn't like the ending. It seemed really anti-climactic. And try as you might, Jeremy Renner could never replace Matt Damon. Fortunately, I heard they're making a new Bourne movie with Matt Damon, so I can't wait to see it.

6 The Man With the Iron Fists
7 The Dictator

Sasha disappoints me and he's not even funnier than Napoleon Dynamite. I would rather see an instant Megan Fox movie than a cheap Al Qaeda movie.

How could anyone have high expectations about any of these movies? I haven't seen any of them because I could tell that they were going to suck.

8 What to Expect When You're Expecting
9 Alex Cross
10 Foodfight!


The Contenders

11 The Oogieloves In the Big Balloon Adventure
12 Act of Valor
13 That's My Boy
14 The Three Stooges
15 The Avengers

Way too childish and boring!

This movie felt like a comedy

WHO THE CRAP PUT AVENGERS ON HERE, WhAT MORE COULD YOU POSSIBLY WANT FROM IT. This was the first superhero team up movie ever, and it was the best movie of 2012. NO other movie in 2012 was better then this. It stomps all other 2012 movie into the dust. How could you not like this movie aside from some characters like Wolverine and Spiderman not being in it. If that is what your mad about, well guess what? There are going to be 3 Avengers movies so they might be in one of them. But what did you not like about this movie? Whoever put Avengers on this list is a complete idiot, Avengers for the win

Boring piece of trash. The characters were bitches, the plot sucked, and I would rather die than watch this garbage. - bendyfazjazz234

16 The Apparition
17 The Grey
18 Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance

This movie sucks

Worst movie of 2012

19 Barfi
20 The Hunger Games

It just ends... Like...
It just ends... Not clear enough to give closure; not well enough to make me want to wait for the sequel... Like salt from 2010

21 The Dark Knight Rises

Alright, lets be honest. It wasn't as good as people were hoping for. I mean, everyone's going around saying it's "good" because it's supposed to be, right?

22 The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 2
23 Wreck-It Ralph
24 Madagascar 3: Europe's Most Wanted
25 Prometheus
26 The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey
27 Looper
28 Ice Age: Continental Drift
