Top Ten Most Unexpectedly Bad Movies of 2016


The Contenders: Page 2

21 Blair Witch

The marketing done on this film was brilliant. Originally, the film was being teased under the title of 'The Woods', which, while vague and unoriginal, still gave off the proper vibes needed for a horror film to attract an audience. And it was working, I'd say. I'll admit that I was interested. But once the film was unveiled to be a secret sequel to 'The Blair Witch Project', I was bought. Too bad that after the great trailer was released, and after the early sky-high reviews started to pop up, the movie was quickly dismissed as another missed opportunity. But hey, I still loved it (despite the hate that circles around it like buzzards around a dying animal). - BKAllmighty

One of the most boring movies I've had to sit through. Thought it may be quite scary at first but it's far from it. - Uner1996

A bad sequel to an ok movie. - SteelCity99

22 Ben-Hur

Testimony of how terrible remakes are. They're all going to suck (except for Pete's Dragon but I'm not sure if it counts since it's completely different from the original in all but name).

Also, why is this on here twice?

23 Hardcore Henry
24 London Has Fallen
25 Max Steel
26 Rogue One: A Star Wars Story

I Hate how the camera techniques of this were used, and also that Carrie Fisher died just ONE WEEK AFTER!

27 Star Trek Beyond
28 Secret Life of Pets

Not terrible but it was marketed beyond believe and made me think it would be amazing. It's fine, but mostly a ripoff of Toy Story.

This was...meh. The trailers didn't interest me and it looks just like a bad combination of Lady and the Tramp and Toy Story. My dog could probably write a better screenplay than this.

Not to mention poop jokes in a film for families? Sigh... - SailorSedna

29 Ratchet & Clank
30 The Divergent Series: Allegiant

You know your franchise is bombing when the final instalment turns into a T.V. movie. Personally, I think it's hilarious. - BKAllmighty

31 Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows
32 Independence Day: Resurgence

Too cheesy with the dialogue. - SteelCity99

33 The Jungle Book

The original version was a memorable part of my early childhood. There was plenty of slapstick and witty comedy in it, and it was really that that makes you enjoy it at any age.

The remake was not at all humorous, and the acting was wooden. It made the storyline appear very boring, in contrast with before when you were pulled right in.

All in all, the remake sucked. - PositronWildhawk

I liked this but the original was still better. What annoys me is Disney is just unnecessarily remaking all their animated films into live action remakes, which makes me believe they've either run out of ideas or just want money (probably both). - SailorSedna

34 Alice Through the Looking Glass

Terrible! Dishonored the source material greatly.

Stupidest film I have ever seen - VideoGamefan5

35 Ice Age: Collision Course

Same As Norm Of The North - VideoGamefan5

Absolutely unnecessary. Blue Sky has officially run out of any original, creative ideas. The teaser alone I couldn't take seriously. Scrat being responsible for creating the solar system?

They clearly are just milking this series for all its worth and I can't believe they're making a sixth one if I'm correct...

They should have stopped at the third one, 'enough said. - SailorSedna

36 Norm of the North

How does a polar bear end up in New York City?

We All Knew This Would Be Balls - VideoGamefan5

I knew this would be a pile of bear crap. Kate Higgins, what were you doing in this? - SailorSedna

But this film was a masterpiece! - darthvadern

37 Deadpool

WHO PUT THIS THERE?!?!?! Deadpool is the best R Rated hilarious Marvel movie of 2016, who says that this movie is horrible? I blame the person who dislike Deadpool

38 Arrival
39 Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children

Okay, okay. I'll admit that it wasn't as good as the book and the plot was sometimes confusing and slow. But the story, relationships, and special effects could make up for that. - LeiaSkywalker

This movie was good - Unknownguy

40 Pete's Dragon

Nothing compared to Suicide Squad. This made $145 million at the global box office, SS made $745 million. I'll go with Suicide Squad as the best film of the summer.
