Top 10 Worst Movies of 2023

You know how every year there's a batch of films that make you question, "Who greenlit this project?" Well, 2023 is no different. From plot holes you could drive a truck through to cringe-worthy dialogue that'll have you squirming in your seat, this year has had its share of cinematic blunders. Before we dive into this hall of shame, let's just say watching these movies might require a strong will and, possibly, a love for cinematic masochism.
The Top Ten
1 Shazam! Fury of the Gods

Shazam! Fury of the Gods is terrible. It was boring, the villains were awful, and the cameo at the end was disappointing. It's a major downgrade from the first movie. I will never watch this piece of trash again, and I'm glad it bombed.

Hi Sophia. Allow me to say this: I don't agree with the Super Mario Bros movie being on the list of the worst movies of 2023. If anything, it should be on the list of the best movies of 2023. But aside from that, I agree that "Shazam 2: Fury of the Gods" was really a bad movie that could set DC superhero films back. For one, Rachel Ziegler, who has zero knowledge of the superhero subgenre, is annoyingly cast in it. Black Adam was supposed to be the main antagonist for this film, but unfortunately, Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson, as much as I enjoy watching him as a professional wrestler in what was then WWF and is now WWE, has let his ego ruin this project by insisting on having his own Black Adam movie. Sadly, it did not make a profit.

They just made up characters, who happen to be goddesses that hate humans for some reason. How are they supposed to be sisters when the actresses don't look related due to the race and age gap among the three? At least Helen Mirren and Lucy Liu are fantastic actresses, but I feel like their talents were wasted here. I've seen better action films with Lucy Liu in them. Not to mention that Rachel Ziegler's character has a romantic interest in one of the boys, despite being thousands of years old. These idiotic writers somehow thought that an inappropriate romance with a child is okay if it's a woman doing it. It's not okay, regardless. Most of these writers and executive producers should never be allowed to work in already-toxic Hollywood.

2023 was a bad year for films. I expected "Fury of the Gods," not "Fury of the Goddesses," which makes me wonder why they didn't title it "Fury of the Goddesses." Some people would like to call me sexist for calling them goddesses instead of gods, even though that's what they are: goddesses! It shouldn't be considered a "microaggression" to call a female god a "goddess."

They could have at least hired three... more

3 The Super Mario Bros. Movie

This movie does indeed belong on the list. It tried too hard to be meta. They made Peach a woke bi-atch, and Mario sounded exactly like Chris Pratt does in everything else he's ever done.

I just couldn't get past Mario sounding more like Emmett Brickowski than the Mario I knew and loved from the video games.

4 You People
5 Children of the Corn
6 Winnie-the-Pooh: Blood and Honey

This film only exists to basically scream "hey, Pooh is in the public domain, let's make a horror movie out of it." With that, this film has no integrity, substance, or intrigue to stand up on. It's following something that's already a fad, and the film itself is just a generic slasher that doesn't offer anything remotely interesting and does everything sloppily - from characters and acting to even the set pieces and score.

This is easily the worst movie of 2023 just by those critiques alone. This movie simply doesn't have much of a reason to exist, and if horror adaptations for the sake of it continue, then artistic integrity really must have dropped by a landslide.

7 Life Upside Down
8 Ant-Man and The Wasp: Quantumania

Ant-Man 3: They think they're so clever for incorporating Ant-Man into the word Quantumania. I didn't like the recasting of Cassie, and they turned her into a criminal, social justice warrior protester who, for some reason, disrespects her dad. Furthermore, all the other women seem to put Ant-Man down. Ant-Man didn't even get to defeat the bad guy, even though it was supposed to be his film. But no, Kevin Feige had to leave his micromanaging fingerprints all over this. They made Janet Pym look like an idiot for trusting Kang. Speaking of Kang, he should not be the next big bad, as he is not a Thanos-level threat. Kang was supposed to be the lead villain in a future Avengers film. Considering all the major Avengers are either dead or retired, I don't know how there can be another Avengers film. Unfortunately, Jonathan Majors was probably falsely accused of sexual assault, and Disney will likely try to blacklist him even if he's found innocent. They did the same thing with Johnny Depp, even though Johnny Depp was found innocent in that trial against Amber Heard. Seriously, why hasn't Disney realized that many people dislike much of Phase Four and Phase Five? The fact that they fail to understand they'll never top Endgame is utterly daft. Why are they trying to replace the main Avengers with female counterparts, and why are they calling people like me sexist for not liking the female characters? I don't dislike the majority of the female characters because they're female. I dislike them because they are either poorly written or are Mary Sues, or both. I dislike Brie Larson and Tessa Thompson, and I detest the Eternals movie. You can't just make up a new team that nobody's heard about. They butchered Scarlet Witch's character and keep introducing new characters that many people aren't interested in because they're not big names. Can Disney please just fire Kevin Feige already? There's barely anything enjoyable, if there is anything enjoyable, from Disney's Marvel after... more

9 Fool's Paradise

Fool's paradise? More like poop's paradise.

10 Ruby Gillman, Teenage Kraken

Ruby Gillman, Teenage Kraken is terrible. It's boring, the characters are generic, and it's a rip-off of The Little Mermaid. I'm glad that movie bombed.

Dreamworks is a joke. They used this movie to attract the Disney haters.

The Contenders
11 The Little Mermaid

Ariel is not black. Disney should not label anyone who criticizes the film as racist. Disney is the real racist entity. This is not only a bad reboot in Disney's era of bad reboots, but they also refuse to listen to the backlash. They're too ignorant to listen to Bob Iger, the mascot of this evil corporation. Why was Scuttle gender-swapped? Why did they give Awkwafina a rap song when she shouldn't be rapping, as that's cultural appropriation? It doesn't help that Disney ignored the fact that Awkwafina was already criticized for putting on a fake black accent on several occasions. This is a massive shipwreck for Disney, and they deserve to be in this disaster they've caused.

12 Love Again
13 Indiana Jones and the Dial of Destiny

Indiana Jones and the Dial of Destiny is terrible. It was too long and boring, the CGI was poor, and some characters were terrible. It was a terrible end to the Indiana Jones franchise, and I'm glad it bombed.

Harrison Ford should just retire his Indy fedora at this point.

14 Barbie

This encourages women to hate men and says that men are inferior to women. And going to the gyno is not this fun, cool thing the ending made it look like.

15 Peter Pan & Wendy

Peter Pan & Wendy: The Remake. Another unnecessary live-action remake, turning Wendy into a Mary Sue and Tinkerbell black. Why does Disney keep doing this? And why do critics who defend this trash film call people like me racist for not liking a race-swapped version of an iconic character?

Peter Pan does not look like the Peter Pan from the novels or the original 1953 Disney film. I'd rather watch Disney's Peter Pan from 1953. If you wanted a better, alternative non-Disney Peter Pan film based on the Barrie novel, I would recommend Hook starring Robin Williams and Dante Basco. Even the PJ Hogan Peter Pan film in 2003 looks better than the live-action remake.

The live-action remake is predictably horribly written. Why does Bob Iger keep insisting on live-action remakes knowing that a lot of people would prefer the originals? As I said with a lot of the remakes that Disney keeps shoving down our throats, the writers and directors should not be allowed to work in Hollywood ever again.

16 Wish

I'd rather revisit Chicken Little than sit through this overly derivative piece of crap even once!

How much lower can you get than naming your movie after one of the worst websites in existence?

I wish Disney could make movies as good as Moana and The Lion King again! And by The Lion King, I mean the 1994 one.

17 House Party

House Party? More like poop party.

18 Elemental

Elemental is terrible. It's boring, and it's just another subpar love story. Pixar has really gone downhill. I'm glad this movie bombed.

Elemental? More like elemental problems.

Just stick with Zootopia or Avatar: The Last Airbender instead.

19 The Flash

A measly blue hedgehog can run faster than this douche.

Every single CW actor out there would have made a much better Flash than Ezra Miller ever has.

20 Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Mutant Mayhem
21 Cocaine Bear
22 Knights of the Zodiac
23 Trolls Band Together

I can't believe this was made by the same studio that gave us Shrek 2, Kung Fu Panda 2, and How to Train Your Dragon 2.

24 Sound of Freedom

Sound of Boredom is more like it!

25 Meg 2: The Trench

Haven't seen it, but shark movies don't do much for me other than Jaws. I don't expect much from this movie.

Am I the only one who immediately thinks of Family Guy whenever these movies are mentioned?
