Top 10 Worst Movies of the 2018 Summer Movie Season

Time to discuss some absolutely atrocious movies that came out in summer 2018. This was such a disappointing summer for movies.

The Top Ten

1 The Happytime Murders The Happytime Murders

I actually had some faith in this movie. They bombed it. - Not_A_Weeaboo

Man, this movie was a lot worse than it had any right to be. Jim Henson would not be proud. People would often counter argue this statement by bringing up the fact that his son directed the film, but that means ABSOLUTELY NOTHING! That’s like saying I can go rob a bank and my parents would be cool with it. I was interested in the idea of an R rated Henson film, but they executed it poorly. The humans in this world are racist towards puppets, yet it’s only brought up in the beginning and doesn’t add anything to the story. The puppet characters didn’t even need to be puppets. Considering they just act like humans anyway. I didn’t laugh at any of the jokes. Some of them dragged on for too long and some of them were repetitive. Melissa McCarthy was surprisingly the best thing about the movie. That really tells you how bad it is. The twist was extremely predictable. I’m sure anyone who watched this was able to see it coming. This is one of the worst movies of the year. It’s ...more - MegaSoulhero

2 Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom

Still better than Show Dogs & Fifty Shades.

This isn't worse than the last jedi, at least this does not have feminists/sjws - B1ueNew

I thought of it as an ok film, but the ending was terrible. - Not_A_Weeaboo

You cannot tell me that this isn’t worse than the Last Jedi. People say that movie ruined the Star Wars franchise, but Fallen Kingdom DEFINITELY ruined the Jurassic Park franchise! Characters make yuh dumb decisions, the villain is very weak, the daughter character is completely useless, CGI dinosaurs don’t look convincing, and Chris Pratt and Bryce Dallas Howard’s characters are still very bland. There’s literally no character development at all. There’s also these two nerd characters that are introduced in the film. The male nerd really got on my nerves. The only joke involving him is that he’s afraid of everything and he screams like a girl. It’s so cartoonish. This movie feels like a cartoon. Some of the action was alright, but this movie is a total mess. - MegaSoulhero

3 Slender Man Slender Man

Should be number 2.

Sausagelover99: “This movie is gonna be good” - Not_A_Weeaboo

It’s movies like this that make me not care about horror films. They decided to make a movie about a creepypasta. It came 8 years too late. I would be very surprised if anyone saw the trailer and thought to themselves that it might be good. The trailer was painful to sit through and so was the movie itself. The acting is terrible, the creepiness is terrible, there isn’t a single positive thing to say. I’ve seen YouTube videos that look better. Even the CGI was absolute garbage. This is one of the worst horror movies I’ve ever seen. - MegaSoulhero

4 Life of the Party Life of the Party

A Melissa McCarthy comedy that’s bad? Unbelievable! Of course I’m being sarcastic. But yeah, this movie is bad. One of the worst movies she’s been in. And I THOUGHT it was going to be the worst one she was in this year, but then another movie recently came out that was surprisingly even worse. This is just a terrible version of Extremely Goofy Movie. Terrible jokes and just Melissa McCarthy being annoying as usual. I regret giving it any attention. - MegaSoulhero

5 Skyscraper

It’s not that bad. It’s kinda good to be honest in my opinion. I mean, it’s better than Baywatch. - AlphaQ

Dwayne Johnson is a great actor, but he’s never been in a great movie. He’s been in some decent movies but has also been in some really bad ones. Like Skyscraper. The sad thing is this isn’t the worst Dwayne Johnson film to come out this year. He does a great job in this movie, but his character feels like the same character that he plays in most movies. There’s nothing that makes him stand out. A lot of people say that this movie is a Die Hard ripoff and it kinda is. There’s no hiding it. Except the action scenes aren’t nearly as impressive. This was such a disappointment. - MegaSoulhero

6 Hotel Transylvania 3

Here are every problems with this film:

-The story doesn't feel like a story.
-Nothing happens at the first 30 minutes (it only takes 5% of the story).
-Animation is horrible.
-Jokes are not funny.
-Vlad does nothing in the movie.
-Has scenes that are illogical.
-Has this romance sub-plot that felt like cliche.
-This movie had a plot-twist that was so obvious (it involves Ericka).
-Villain lacked character development.
-Unanswered questions.
-A battle scene was put in an end for no reason.

I can't believe JW 2 is above this trash. That movie is EXTREMELY underrated. In fact, I believe it's the best of the JP series. Yeah, ya don't gotta agree with me, but calling it disappointing just blows my mind wide open. Seriously, can you see my brain? No, it's too small? Oh. Okay. (No seriously, I only put in that self deprecation because the Zeitgeist is so far from my opinion.)

Seriously? This movie is amazing, it was just so colorful and I loved the villians, call it Hotel Transylvania nostalgia if you want to but this movie is worth a B+, IRYO though - darthvadern

Hotel Transylvania 3 isn’t as bad as the Emoji Movie, but it is still unbelievably terrible. I enjoyed the first one, thought the second one was pretty bad, but this is the worst of the trilogy. The jokes really didn’t hit the mark in this one. They’re just not funny and they throw in too many at a time. Only joke I chuckled at was when Dennis’ dog says “Hi, Bob.” That was pretty funny because it came out of nowhere. The problem is, they decided to repeat the joke. Also, I’m pretty sure anyone who didn’t see the short film that played before the Emoji Movie will be wondering when they even got the dog. The animation is absolutely awful. They keep doing such exaggerated movements and it gets really annoying and distracting even when there’s a serious moment. They play the Macarena at the end of the movie which I thought was completely pointless. Why did they play THAT of all songs? Terrible movie. Hopefully that Spider-Man Movie will be better. - MegaSoulhero

Those are pretty weak reasons, they played the macarena, so what? Rather that than Anaconda or Stupid Hoe, I respect your opinion though - darthvadern

7 The Meg The Meg

The Megan Griffin

Meg is the name of 1 of my 35 exes.

Anyways looks boring. - AlphaQ

Meg Griffin?

Ever since Jaws set the bar so high, just about every shark movie that came after that has been underwhelming. The Meg is no exception. It’s just a generic shark movie that doesn’t do anything special. There were actually moments that I found to be unintentionally funny. Even when it tries to take itself seriously. This should’ve been an R rated film. It would’ve made it look a lot more realistic and intense. This could’ve been entertaining, but it just doesn’t do anything to justify its existence. Just stick with Jaws. - MegaSoulhero

8 Crazy Rich Asians Crazy Rich Asians

This looks generic. No offense to any asians or anyone who liked it m - AlphaQ

I think people just love this movie’s significance so much that they don’t realize how mediocre the film truly is. It uses just about every romantic comedy trope you can think of. It doesn’t do anything original. We already know what happens. A girl dates a guy, there’s conflict involving their relationship, they get back together, then they get engaged. The comedy isn’t very funny either. Awkwafina’s character was SO irritating! I’ll admit there was some nice scenery and some solid cinematography, but the movie as a whole was so generic. Jon Chu has never made a good movie and this is no exception. - MegaSoulhero

9 Teen Titans Go! To the Movies Teen Titans Go! To the Movies

Still better than that piece of crap ant man 2 - B1ueNew

@MegaSoulhero Do you really think Hotel Transylvania 3 is worse than this (I'm not angry, just curious)? - darthvadern

hate it

Making fun of yourselves does not free you from criticism. People want the original Teen Titans to come back so badly that they’re trying to convince themselves that this movie is good. Even though it’s not. It’s really sad. I feel like if it wasn’t for Tara Strong’s tweet or that post credits scene, people would be a lot harder on this film. It’s just a bunch of childish jokes, annoying characters, and a predictable plot twist involving the villain. They also point out in the movie that the twist was predictable as if they think that makes it okay. It’s like Violet from the Incredibles pointing out how lazy changing the name and theme of an old roller coaster and calling it “new” is. It’s still lazy! The Teen Titans Go movie is terrible! However, as bad as this movie is, it’s still better than that live action Titans series. - MegaSoulhero

10 Solo: A Star Wars Story

Too much politics not enough Han Solo

Solo: A Star Wars Story could’ve been a great movie, but they made the mistake of firing Lord and Miller. So we ended up with this boring junk. While there are some fun action scenes, the story as a whole just plays it safe. We don’t really get to know anything about Han Solo other than what we already knew. We find out how he got his last name, but was anyone really wondering how he got his last name? The way they executed that scene felt so awkward. L3-37 is the worst droid in all of Star Wars. She constantly complains about equal rights and droid discrimination. It gets really annoying. I don’t know why people say the Last Jedi is bad when this movie is far worse. - MegaSoulhero

The Contenders

11 Ant-Man and the Wasp

I liked it - judo8alex

Terrible - B1ueNew

12 Christopher Robin
13 Death of a Nation

Essentially an excuse to bash Trump. I'm not a big fan of his ideologies, but come on. This is ridiculous.

What kind of Rom Com is this?

Geez guys calm down, I summited this to the list not because of Trump, it’s because this movie has a 0% on Rotten Tomatoes. Chill!

Trump’s hate is getting to out of hand. Let’s be real guys - AlphaQ

14 Show Dogs

Get this crap above Christopher Robin, I respect your opinion if you like it

15 Hereditary

Why the heck is this masterpiece on here? No wonder nobody has commented on it

16 Ocean's 8
17 Tomb Raider (2018)
18 Gotti (2018)

Holy crap they made and named a film after tekashi69s song *cries* - AlphaQ

20 Action Point
