Worst Years for Movies

The Top Ten
1 2011 2011 (MMXI) was a common year starting on Saturday of the Gregorian calendar, the 2011th year of the Common Era (CE) and Anno Domini (AD) designations.

Well in my opinion, 2009 and 2010 were the best years for movies (in the 21st century at least) but 2011 was yikes...

Lots of failed comedy movies, generic action movies and sci-fi movies, obnoxious animated movies e.g. Cars 2 etc.

Yeah... tbh nothing really oscar worthy that year...

2 2017 2017 (MMXVII) was a common year starting on Sunday of the Gregorian calendar, the 2017th year of the Common Era (CE) and Anno Domini (AD) designations, the 17th year of the 3rd millennium, the 17th year of the 21st century, and the 8th year of the 2010s decade.

My Opinions About Those Past 12 Years:

2006: Amazing!
2007: Awesome!
2008: Pretty mediocre year, but not as bad as 2009, I was only 8 years old in 2008
2009: Sucks.
2010: Pretty bad, but it improved later on
2011: Good
2012: Average
2013: Bad.
2014: Really Bad!
2015: Horrible! (Things got 10 times worse)
2016: Horrendous! (Things got 20 times worse)
2017: WORST YEAR EVER!
2018: I don't know so far

3 2020 2020 (MMXX) was a leap year starting on Wednesday of the Gregorian calendar, the 20th year of the third millennium, the 20th year of the 21st century, and the 1st year of the 2020s.

It was heavily defined by the COVID-19 pandemic, leading to global social and economic disruption, mass cancellations and postponements of events, schools and many workplaces being closed for months, online school... read more

A bad year for movies because the coronavirus pandemic has closed cinemas around the world, causing movies to either postpone their release dates or cancel their theatrical release dates and go straight on digital.

Made it all the way to #1! The golden age of Hollywood is over and there are no movies, movies are all died!

Thanks to COVID finding a half decent movie from this year was a bit like scoring a Hail Mary.

4 2013 2013 (MMXIII) was a common year starting on Tuesday of the Gregorian calendar, the 2013th year of the Common Era (CE) and Anno Domini (AD) designations, the 13th year of the 3rd millennium and the 21st century, and the 4th year of the 2010s decade.

My Opinions About Those 12 Years (so far):

2006: Amazing! (8/10)
2007: Awesome! (Best Year of My Life) (10/10)
2008: Pretty mediocre year, but not as bad as 2009, The only really bad thing about 2008 was diabetes (5/10)
2009: Sucks! That was the year of Michael Jackson's death, and Nickelodeon got rid of their orange slime logo, and SpongeBob was at his worst and so much more. (3/10)
2010: Pretty bad at first, but it improved later on (4/10)
2011: Good. (7/10)
2012: Average. (5/10)

2016: Things got 20 times worse! (0.60/10)
2017: WORST YEAR EVER! (0.1/10), There was absolutely nothing good to about this year, Plus! The Movies from Paramount of that year were disturbingly awful! The only thing I miss about 2017 is me being with the big guys and my new baby cousin!
2018: (so far), Not a good year, but it's an improvement over 2017, but with wonderful parts, like ...more

5 2005 2005 was a common year starting on Saturday of the Gregorian calendar, the 2005th year of the Common Era and Anno Domini designations. It was the 6th year of the 2000s decade.

There was not a single film on metacritic that year with a score of 90 or higher, not to mention there was Son of the Mask, Alone in the Dark, BloodRayne, The Adventures of Sharkboy and Lavagirl, Fantastic Four, Elektra, Doom, Chicken Little, Bewitched, The Ring Two, the list goes on.

That year had many remakes...Fun with Dick and Jane, The Longest Yard, The Producers, Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, and The Poseidon Adventure...just to name a few. This would make Hollywood get TOO lazy!

Son of the Mask, enough said!

6 1987 The Next Generation" television series premiered, carrying on the legacy of the original franchise. The Montreal Protocol was adopted to address ozone layer depletion, showcasing international cooperation on environmental issues.

This was truly the worst year for movies, I mean it has to be a bad year for it to have Jaws: The Revenge and The Garbage Pail Kids Movie both in the same year, as well as some more awful sequels.

Garbage pail kids movie

7 2016 2016 (MMXVI) was a leap year starting on Friday of the Gregorian calendar, the 2016th year of the Common Era (CE) and Anno Domini (AD) designations, the 16th year of the 3rd millennium, the 16th year of the 21st century, and the 7th year of the 2010s decade.
8 2014 2014 (MMXIV) was a common year starting on Wednesday of the Gregorian calendar, the 2014th year of the Common Era (CE) and Anno Domini (AD) designations, the 14th year of the 3rd millennium and the 21st century, and the 5th year of the 2010s decade.

2014 was very bad, though 2017 sucked more! Strangely enough, I am getting to a point now where 2017 reminds me a lot of 2014 because they were both terrible. A lot of celebrities died and dropped like flies in 2014 also. I had been hospitalized a lot in 2014 as well.
2014 was hell for sure.

9 2001 2001 (MMI) was a common year starting on Monday of the Gregorian calendar, the 2001st year of the Common Era (CE) and Anno Domini (AD) designations, the 1st year of the 3rd millennium and the 21st century, and the 2nd year of the 2000s decade.
10 2008 2008 was a leap year starting on Tuesday of the Gregorian calendar, the 2008th year based on the Common Era/Anno Domini designations. It is the 8th year of the 3rd millennium and the 21st century, and the 9th year of the 2000s decade.

Yea, there were the bad ones but then there are ones like Wall.e and more!

It hurts me at the bottom of my heart that this year is on this list, 2014 15 16 17 and 18 was the worst 2008 was a very memorable year of the 00s decade

The Contenders
11 2003 2003 (MMIII) was a common year starting on Wednesday of the Gregorian calendar, the 2003rd year of the Common Era (CE) and Anno Domini (AD) designations, the 3rd year of the 3rd millennium and the 21st century, and the 4th year of the 2000s decade.

House of the Dead, Gigli, Boat Trip, The Cat in the Hat, Freddy vs. Jason, Scary Movie 3, Charlie's Angels: Full Throttle... and undoubtably THE worst movie of all time: The Room!

At least it gave us Finding Nemo, Holes, Freaky Friday, the first Pirates film, and the third Lord of the Rings movie.

Spy Kids 3: Game Over. Enough said. At least it had good CGI.

12 2000

I was born on that year and I have to say that it is a pretty disappointing year for movies. From a die hard Mission Impossible fan, Mission Impossible 2 was released that year and that movie is just bad. Every other ones are good. The only good movies that year were Gladiator, X-Men and Cast Away. The rest is pretty forgettable.

13 2004 2004 was a leap year starting on Thursday of the Gregorian calendar, the 2004th year of the Common Era and Anno Domini designations

The year had a couple of decent movies, but very little of those that stay. Then again, it was the year of turds like Catwoman, Scooby-Doo 2,. Superbabies and Garfield.

14 1997
15 2006 2006 was a common year starting on Sunday of the Gregorian calendar, the 2006th year based on the Common Era/Anno Domini designations. It is the 6th year of the 3rd millennium and the 21st century, and the 7th year of the 2000s decade.

The Wicker Man reboot, enough said.

16 2018 2018 (MMXVIII) was a common year starting on Monday of the Gregorian calendar, the 2018th year of the Common Era (CE), the 9th year of the 2010s decade, the 18th year of the 21st century, and the 18th year of the 3rd millennium.

So far, 2018 is not a good year for me, but it's better than 2016 and 2017.

Man this has been a horrible year for movies.

Too many mediocre movies that got bad reviews, Other than Incredibles 2 and maybe black panther

17 1998
18 2010 2010 was a common year starting on Friday of the Gregorian calendar, the 2010th year based on Anno Domini/Common Era designations. It is the 10th year of the 3rd millennium and the 21st century, and the 1st year of the 2010s decade.

Fred the Movie, yes really.

19 2015 2015 (MMXV) was a common year starting on Thursday of the Gregorian calendar, the 2015th year of the Common Era (CE) and Anno Domini (AD) designations, the 15th year of the 3rd millennium and the 21st century, and the 6th year of the 2010s decade.

Why is this year so low, again?

20 2007 2007 (MMVII) was a common year starting on Monday of the Gregorian calendar, the 2007th year of the Common Era (CE) and Anno Domini (AD) designations, the 7th year of the 3rd millennium and the 21st century, and the 8th year of the 2000s decade.

The list for top 10 best movies of 2007 doesn't really have the best options, I mean, yes, we've got Ratotoullie, 300, and The Simpsons Movie, but what else? Heck, Michael Bay's Transformers, which is nothing more than an explosion-focused robot smash-em-up, is #1!

21 1980

There are a lot of movies in 1980 that lost money!

22 2002 2002 (MMII) was a common year starting on Tuesday of the Gregorian calendar, the 2002nd year of the Common Era (CE) and Anno Domini (AD) designations, the 2nd year of the 3rd millennium and the 21st century, and the 3rd year of the 2000s decade.

The year I was born was rather bad for movies. Not for music though.

The early 2000s was the downfall of movies, but 2002 was probably the worst year in the early 2000s out of all of those years

23 1995
24 1989
25 2022 2022 (MMXXII) was a common year starting on Saturday of the Gregorian calendar, the 2022nd year of the Common Era (CE) and Anno Domini (AD) designations, the 22nd year of the 3rd millennium and the 21st century, and the 3rd year of the 2020s decade.

Hardly any movies released this has scored over 5.9/10 in IMDB this year

The highest movie that topped the charts was Top Gun: Maverick which wasn't entirely bad but not too breath-taking either.. which shows how this year was a complete hit or miss

I hope 2023 will pick itself up because the movies in 2022 were just... dead...

I thought no years would be worse than 2011 movie wise

Boi, was I wrong...
