Worst Movies of 2018

The most horrible cinematic failures and flops to be released in the year 2018!

The Top Ten

1 Fifty Shades Freed Fifty Shades Freed

I just want to know... HOW COULD THE WINTER OLYMPICS ADVERTISE THIS SO-CALLED EROTIC DRAMA?! Believe me, my sister and I literally ran out of the living room and covered our eyes and ears when it was being advertised! - ModernSpongeBobSucks

That sounds like something I would do. I've never seen any of the trilogy, but all three look like the worst movies I could possibly see. - PhoenixAura81

I watched this on an airplane and people still walked out

I was originally going to be near silent about this, but by god why is this garbage of a film series being advertised everywhere?! I didn't even know it had such a fan base? I don't even know what people find good about these movies! - Phillip873

Terrible movie

2 Show Dogs

I was forced to watch this at the Regal Cinema at Gainesville, VA with my younger sisters and some other kid yesterday and it was bad, very very bad. It's about some police dog who finds out that a pet show has become a front for animal smuggling so he and some other dogs and 3 pigeons try to save some animals affected by it. Oh, and it's supposed to be a comedy and it fails as one in so many levels (even though there were a few chuckles/laughs here and there but they were minor). Also, I think it was directed by the same guy who directed the first Scooby-Doo live-action movie and the live-action Smurfs movies (Raja Gosnell) so it's one of those generic, formulaic, and downright cringe-worthy talking animal movies that we've seen a thousand times before crossed with a generic, formulaic spy movie that we've also seen a thousand times before thus making this the most generic, formulaic, play-by-the-books, Great Value/Market Pantry/Kirkland Signature/whatever-brand movie I've ever seen. ...more - PerfectImpulseX

This film is absolutely appalling. This is maybe one of my least favourite movies. I hated it, and one of the worst movies of the decade. Absolutely atrocious movie. - iliekpiez

How is Black Panther worse than this disaster

This movie (perhaps unintentionally) encouraged pedophilia. - Solarian

3 Sherlock Gnomes

I LOATHE this movie. This definitely deserves to be at #1. I didn't like Gnomeo and Juliet. It wasn't abysmal, just bad... The animation was great, and I like how they keep the story relative to the original Romeo and Juliet. That's about it. This movie completely makes every character other than Sherlock and Watson useless to the story. I'm fine with the creators creating a separate story involving Watson and Sherlock. This movie had a boring story, and characters that were either pointless, boring, or annoying. The only plus? The animation has greatly improved. The textures are on point, from the ceramic the gnomes are made of, to the plastic Irene is made of. The 2D animation segments are also really great. That's about it. Don't take your kids to see this movie. If you want to see something better with them, go see SmallFoot or The Incredibles 2. You could also go see Isle of Dogs.

Sherlock Gnomes at #3... okay, so for the real question, has anyone heard of the Will Ferrell version of Serlock Holmes? It just came out this week and it is not just the worst movie of 2018 but one of the worst movies of all time. I don't like this movie but the Will Ferrell's version made this look funny in comparison.

It's good that they made a sequel for Gnomeo and Juliet, but COME ON! This DESTROYED their chance for a THIRD movie!

No Ship Sherlock!

4 Teen Titans Go! To the Movies Teen Titans Go! To the Movies

People who are putting this on a top 10 worst list have not seen the movie.

The Teen Titans Go show is really bad but this movie is shockingly great, dare I say the best comic book movie of the year great.

Yes I'm shocked but the people on here voting for this clearly haven't seen this movie.

See it, it's great.

I'm probably going to hate this movie. Based from the trailers, it looks like Shrek but with more fart jokes and making fun of super heroes instead of fairy tales. I hope this movie flops "because if Aqua Man can, anyone can! "

I heard that this movie was actually GOOD. I'll believe it when I see it.

The only reason the movie was good was because if the ratings were extremely low the series would be cancelled and because movies have to be enjoyable for everyone including adults but this is a good movie

It's Slenderman, so it sucks.

Possibly the worst movie I've ever seen! The fact that this movie was made is a direct insult to the horror film industry! - sansundertale

Running out of ideas on what to make movies on...I see. - CharismaticKat

This needs to be number 1. This movie is the 2018 emoji movie! - LightningStrike

6 A Wrinkle in Time

This is the first movie I thought was so bad, I felt compelled to warn others not to waste their time watching it. Probably the worst movie I've seen since Battlefield Earth. I kept watching hoping that there would be an "ah ha" moment; yet, as the storyline unfolded, it just became more and more unintelligible. I had to stop half way through. I was getting a headache trying to make sense of it. This is a kids' movie? The next day, I thought I would give it a second chance and watch the 2nd half. Turns out the 1st half was the better half. I never read the book but can only surmise that there was too much left out to keep the story cohesive. The time travel visual effects were terrible and appeared low budget. My favorite scene (because it was visually entertaining) was the flying cabbage scene; yet, I couldn't help but to be concerned that the kids were going to fall off. Repeatedly hearing the name "Charles Wallace" became utterly annoying and contrived. Why not Charles, Chuck or C? ...more

This movie was poorly cast, poorly costumed, and strayed too far from the book. I like that Meg is a different race than in the book - that offers a refreshing perspective, but she looks NOTHING like either of her casted parents, and so this is completely unconvincing. Oprah was a poor choice for Mrs. Which, who is a "wisp." Oprah is the polar opposite of a wisp, and the makeup artist's attempt to overcome this obstacle only resulted in her resembling an amazon glitter warrior instead of a wispy ethereal being - poor casting. Reese Witherspoon was a fun character until she became a little too mean to Meg. Her character isn't supposed to be mean. She made a nice recovery at the end, but what kind of message are sending our children when the only white female character is also the only mean and petty character in the entire movie? I wanted to see a beloved book brought to life - not butchered! Instead we saw an agenda - One with the Universe. As far as thinking it's for kids - ...more

I personally thought that this movie was made to promote feminism because of female heroism (which is not a bad thing), almost every character is female, and that the lead actress, Storm Reid (cool first name), said that she hopes this movie will inspire young girls everywhere (I think). This is my opinion, I don't know if anyone else thinks this. Besides that, I thought it was pretty dull and the acting wasn't all that special. The best thing about the movie was the visuals. They were really good. I can kind of relate to the protagonist a little bit as well. - PhoenixAura81

Sadly, it seems the great book "A Wrinkle in Time" never got the film adaptation it truly deserved. T^T - SailorSedna

7 God's Not Dead: A Light in Darkness

This series is dumb, and insults Christians and Atheists. - Drawbox

You know what. Screw christian movies! How about read the bible! The bible has every moral everyone needs to know. This doesn't. This movie screws up so many hearts in so many levels by insulting so many people. And if there's a 4th movie, that will fail easily. - LightningStrike

If you make a film about religion make sure it doesn't offend other religions - BoyGenius234

I liked this one - Camaro6

What's next? The Hide and seek movie? The Freeze Tag movie? The Floor is lava movie?! - SpectralOwl

Actually the films about a duck taking care of ducklings, still going to suck though - Gangem

I'm not confident about this movie since I watched it on Netflix. But this seems like a generic student animated film that wasn't on theaters. By just looking at the poster, there's nothing anything good about it. - DumbFriesNub

Well, there goes my childhood playing Duck Duck Goose. - KaylaRae897

Must have been so bad it only got a Netflix release in America - sansundertale

9 The Happytime Murders

This has the same sins as Sausage Party. Repeatedly using profanity and cheap crude humor in attempt to be funny, no wonder this was a box office bomb.

This is without a doubt Hollywood's stupidest idea... hopefully of all time.

Not even close. Not even in the same ballpark as some of their other dumb ideas. Remember that the Tetris trilogy was supposed to be a thing? Battleship? God forbid all those pointless remakes? Happytime Murders at least had the slightest inkling of potential. - nerffan8000

This is great movie. It is hat it is and it does it well and its not as bad as proud mary

We already had a vulgar interpretation of the Muppets long before this film came to exist, Peter Jackson's Meet the Feebles. The only major differences is that Meet the Feebles was an idea first and a product second, took risks with how dark it wanted to go, and actually wanted to be a Muppets satire. - nerffan8000

12 Holmes & Watson

WHY is this only 27?!? Above actual GOOD movies like Ant-Man and Wasp, Solo, Aquaman, and Teen Titans Go to the Movies (don't hate on me please)! This is just disgusting! Don't watch this at all!

A very imbecilic and sad attempt to make a movie, its endemic of what Hollywood has been reduced to! It's a complete insult.
Its time to go back to film school!

I had heard that the movie was so terrible that many audiences were shouting, cringing and leaving the theater. - BurnAux

Waste of time and money! I only laughed out loud once during the whole thing.

13 Skyscraper

The plot is very derivative and while it may not come close to Die Hard and reinforces how Hollywood cinema is lacking originality, I can see that any movie with Dwayne Johnson is very enjoyable, there is a lot of suspense and the action and stunts are exhilarating. 4/5

Generic, stupid garbage. One of the worst mainstream big budget action movies I've seen in years.

14 Peter Rabbit

Seriously, Sony? You've done so much wrong, and you still give us terrible looking movies. There's no way I'm going to see this movie. - darthvadern

So what's Daisy Ridley got into other than the latest Star Wars movies? Umm... nothing interesting. - PositronWildhawk

Really Sony? How have you not learned your lesson

Let's be good by stealing from other movies! - iliekpiez

Awful. - psiddy42

16 Hotel Transylvania 3: Summer Vacation Hotel Transylvania 3: Summer Vacation

This movie was great! Not as good as the first one, but an awesomne sequel overall, don't get it how everyone ranks this below the first two entries, it was way better than the second one in my opinion - darthvadern

No the trailer was funny there is a big chance this movie is gonna be great

The trailer has a really disturbing scene I'm not saying what happened I said scene go see for yourself - Lunala

Idiotic movie - Spongehouse

17 Insidious: The Last Key

I haven't seen it yet, but pretty much anyone at my school thought it sucked. I thought the clips I saw sucked though. - Phillip873

18 The Christmas Chronicles
19 Nutcracker and the Four Realms

I'm not looking forward to this I hated barbie and the nutcracker

20 Ant-Man and the Wasp

Just some filler and a cash grab, wasp looks pretty cool and good though - B1ueNew

Ant man? They are getting to the bottom of the superhero pool

Get this in the top 10 - B1ueNew

Boring feminism - B1ueNew

21 The Nun

How do you solve a problem like this?

22 Tomb Raider Tomb Raider

It was not that bad but still not good. - egnomac

Of course the first one sucked - Dvafan2

23 Gotti
24 Aquaman

It's solid. It has a good story and and it's also very funny. The only thing I didn't like was that some of the people played by the actors were rushed. Overall it's a god movie, but Black Panther is way better than this. 8/10

I'm actually excited for it. - girlcool

The movie actually looks really good

It is a solid movie, I just saw it. - BlazingParasol

25 Life of the Party
26 Pacific Rim: Uprising

Why... why did they kill off Mako? - Not_A_Weeaboo

This was a bad sequel to a ok movie - Dvafan2

No way this film is only #20. The first movie was AWESOME. It had those awesome Kaiju vs Jeager fights for 1-hour straight.

The script. Really? What am I even watching? So, lets get this straight, the story is about the Shao industries organising a drone program, but this rogue Jeager named Obsibian Fury attacks Sydney and Antartica for no reason, but later on, it turns out to be controlled by a Kaiju and then, the drones activates and opens the portal to let the Kaiju in, and then Jeager pilots (who are all kids) play with their Jaeger robots. This is just an insult to fans of the original.

And then, let's talk about that STUPID plot-twist where Charlie Day's character, Newt, is the villain. And why is he the villain? He wants to end the world by making the Kaiju make Mount Fuji errupt to destroy the world. Why does he want to end the world? Because he just wants to. He's just a villain because... he's a villain with no character writing or development. Even his reasons ...more

So you’re telling me I’m this movie any average joe can pilot a jaeger now?

27 Ocean's 8

Boring feminism watch the original oceans eleven instead.

Looks boring so I will pass - Dvafan2

This franchise is excactly like Ghostbusters due to this installment.

28 The Hurricane Heist
29 Love, Simon

This movie was great - Catacorn

Teaching kids to be gay. Satan has stepped pretty low this time. - Solarian

I loved this movie! It was definitely the best. by the way it doesn't teach kids to be gay, it teaches people to be comfortable about who they are!

I haven’t seen this movie, but the reviews seem to be mostly positive. What’s wrong with the movie? - AliciaMae

30 Death Wish

Awful remake of the Charles Bronson classic with Bruce Willis giving another phoned-in performance. - Dancedom

You can't beat the original with Charles Bronson.

Bruce Willis just doesn’t care anymore does he?

31 The Meg The Meg

First of all let’s just say that Jason Statham killed it in this movie again, Second of all this is like jaws but a bigger shark and plot twist
I don't know how you people hate this movie

What made this movie successful is how ridiculous it was. there was a problem with the shark.(well, both of them pretty much.)

32 Truth or Dare

Really Hollywood you first made a movie literally called Hide and Seek and now we get Truth or Dare man they must be really disparate. - egnomac

It's a steaming pile of garbage - Catacorn

Easily my favorite comedy of the year. - nerffan8000

33 The Grinch

The grinch looks like a shaved green Chewbacca

Rule of thumb, Any animated movie that uses internet memes is gonna suck

Illumination ruins everything.

Feminist movie.

This movie was awesome!

Honestly this movie was so bad it was fun.

It is trash

41 Black Panther Black Panther

I thought I was going to the cinema for a great marvel superhero movie. Instead I got a movie with a lot of plot holes and the hero having his ass handed to him constantly. And enough with the politics already!

This was an awesome movie, stop calling this movie "racist". - Solarian

This movie is awesome. But what I hate the most about it is the what are those scene. It came too late - LightningStrike

Not good. The main characters all sucked, the secondary villain was wasted, cringey dialogue (what are those!? ), bad special effects, and a lame plot ripped straight from the Lion King. Only good things about this snoozefest was Killmonger and the soundtrack.
I don't understand for the life of me why such a mediocre movie got so much praise. - CharismaticKat

46 Escape Plan 2: Hades

I really enjoyed much of the first one but was very sadly disappointed with Escape Plan 2. The cinematography is shaky-cam bullsh! t, the plot jumps all over, the sets are bad, the special effects are poor, and everyone mostly sleep walks all over the whole film.

The most redeeming quality in this film are the fight scenes with Stallone. - BurnAux

47 Goosebumps 2

WHAT?! I loved this movie. I've always been a fan of Goosebumps and this movie is full of funny scenes. I also think the plot was different but unique in how Slappy wants a family and when things don't work out with a human family, he brings Halloween and all his monster friends to life. I think this movie should get more credit than it's given. I LOVED it!

48 Traffik

Another bad lionsgate movie - Dvafan2

49 Death of a Nation

Okay, I admit that I haven't seen this movie, but I heard that a lot of people consider it to be a bad movie, so I'll just leave this here in case anybody wants to give their thoughts on it. - WindWakerFan

I'm done with this movies. Stop making this movies

If the cover was John Kennedy and George W Bush instead of Lincoln and Trump then I would watch. - B1ueNew

50 The Hate U Give

A Trump supporter added this - jameshoward

As a right winger and Trump supporter, the movie is just one-sided bias, it's a 90 minute ad for black KKK... *coughs* I mean Black Lives Matter who acts like KKKs towards white police and BLM sucks. This movie sucks more. I would even say it's worse than TTG to the movies, at least TTG doesn't say " CyBoRg Is CoOl because he's BlAcK". And they also promote Bill Cosby, not because of Fat Albert/Little Bill but because of his race. - Maddox121

SJW Pandering in a nutshell

I WAS going to do a big writeup on this, but "Maddox121" basically summed it up. 1/10 (the ONLY reason it's not a zero is because I reserve the "zero" rating for those cases where they can't even be called movies anymore: e.g., "Eyes Wide Shut" or Andy Warhol's "Empire").
