Most Unnecessary Movies of 2017

This list isn't about the worst movies of 2017, but rather the movies of 2017 that did not need to be made, that are just pointless!

The Top Ten

1 Transformers: The Last Knight

This is the FIFTH INSTALLMENT of Transformers! I watched a couple reviews on this movie (not wasting my time watching it) and this movie is just so unnecessary! There's nothing new about this movie, absolutely nothing! - Phillip873

Not good at all - Neonco31

I am planning to watch this movie at a friend (who is obssesed with this series), I'm excpecting it to be as awful as the other four. - darthvadern

Your friend should really know that these movies are just cash grabs, even Michael Bay the director seems like he could give less a damn about the franchise, it just makes money! - Phillip873

2 Beauty and the Beast (2017)

Literally just a rehash of the original Disney hit Beauty and the Beast. But it just HAS to be live action, right? Seriously, these live action remakes are pointless cash grabs and I'm against Disney making them! I gave it a 6/10 because some visuals look nice and it's not terrible. But in it's "pointlessness", this is one of the most pointless films of 2017. - Phillip873

3 The Nut Job 2

What is the point of making this? A sequel to a terrible animated movie that just bombed! What were the creators thinking when they made this? - Phillip873

4 Diary of a Wimpy Kid: The Long Haul

There was barely any point in making this movie. Especially since the original cast of the other Diary of a Wimpy Kid movies weren't there. I personally haven't seen it but I know for a fact it was garbage. - Phillip873

5 Fifty Shades Darker

A sequel to an absolutely terrible movie that most people agreed was terrible, why was this made? - Phillip873

6 Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales

I thought it was just "ok" in terms of a film, not one of the worst of the year. But fans of the pirates like my mother thought it was pretty much pointless and stupid. - Phillip873

7 The Fate of the Furious

It's the EIGHTH installment in the Fast and Furious franchise, that alone should be self explanatory. - Phillip873

No, I actually like this - Neonco31

8 The Emoji Movie

I was expecting this to be at number 1

I hate this movie, but I don't think it's truly the most "pointless" movie of 2017, as it isn't a pointless sequel or a rehash of something. But this movie still has barely ANY reason to be made other than "we need a movie about emojis" which barely is valid. - Phillip873

9 Tom and Jerry: Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory

This is just a direct-to-DVD movie, but I still feel it deserves a place on this list. While I have yet to see the full movie (I'd rather not. I have better things to do like play FGO or watch new anime and movies.), lots of people on the Internet including myself felt this little crossover didn't make any sense at all and that it was pointless and absurd given the two properties involved and how they have absolutely no relation to each other whatsoever. Saberspark and Nostalgia Critic are just a few notable YouTubers who tore this movie apart. Personally, this movie showed me that Warner Bros. is just really being desperate for money now since they can't stop making all these half-baked direct-to-DVD movies of Hanna-Barbera and MGM cartoons. - ModernSpongeBobSucks

Lol, yeah. They'll practically make anything with Tom and Jerry in it these days. - ModernSpongeBobSucks

10 Despicable Me 3

The third installment of Despicable Me, and I really didn't feel it had much purpose to be made. The second could have just been a fine conclusion, and the whole DM series couldn't have just turned into garbage with minions. The third movie here really doesn't have much of a point. Everyone ends up the same at the end, nobody really develops much except maybe Gru or Lucy. It's just a bunch of shenanigans. Personally I didn't like this much at all (better than Minions though), but I know a few people here like it. - Phillip873

The Contenders

11 Daddy's Home 2

I didn't think the first was terrible, a 5/10 at its best. But a sequel seems like a stretch... - Phillip873

12 Flatliners
13 My Little Pony

Same as Furious 8 - Neonco31

14 Surf's Up 2: Wave Mania

Two things. One, no one ever asked for a sequel to Surf's Up. Two, WHY DID IT HAVE TO BE A WWE CROSSOVER. No, wait, let's push that to three things. Three, there's literally an unsettling sex joke involving John Cena as an anthropomorphic walrus (or seal, I forgot which one he's supposed to be) where he says he wants to drink a "fish's milk". The movie was already pointless to begin with, but it also acts as a disgrace to what made the first Surf's Up great and just turned most of the cast from being fleshed-out characters to flanderized hollow shells of their former selves. - ModernSpongeBobSucks

15 The Lego Ninjago Movie
16 Rough Night
17 Kong: Skull Island
