Top 10 Worst Movies of the First Half of 2018

While there were some great films that came out in the first half of 2018, there were also some bad films. So let’s discuss. Remember, these are only movies that came out before July.

The Top Ten

1 Fifty Shades Freed

What are you talking about? This movie's awesome. Haha, just kidding. This movie sucked, plain and simple.

If you want an analysis on why this movie series is awful and a good laugh along the way, I'd check out Ralph The Movie Maker's video on the trilogy. - phillysports

From what I've heard this trilogy sounds offensive and a little creepy. - girlcool

I HATE these movies

2 Show Dogs

I made the mistake of taking my children (who love dogs) to see this movie. It's NOT for children at all. There's a scene which encourages child grooming. Please avoid this movie at all costs.

Worse than Fifty Shades. How can people think Fallen Kingdom is worse than this?

This belongs in like 2009 when these types of movies were a trend - DapperPickle

Truth or Dare was a close no. 2, but FRICK THIS MOVIE

3 A Wrinkle in Time

I find it hilarious that they announced that Jennifer Lee is becoming the chief creative officer of Walt Disney Animation Studios 3 months after A Wrinkle in Time came out. It’s almost as if they didn’t watch this movie. Anyway, this movie is pretty bad, but not awful. I thought it had some nice heartfelt moments. Mainly in the beginning and the end which are honestly the best parts of the movie. The moment when Reese Witherspoon, Mindy Kailing, and Oprah Winfrey got introduced is when it started to go downhill. The acting is really bad. And these are usually great actors. Which means they were given bad direction. Ava should just go drive her car off a cliff. I try to be helpful, and she’s just like “forget that”. Anyway, there are a lot of random things that happen for the sake of happening. Like Reese Witherspoon turning into a flying lettuce creature. By the way, the visual effects are an absolute joke. Terrible CGI and terrible green screen effects. Also, the pop music ...more - MegaSoulhero

Director: Let's whitewash the characters!
People: BOO!
Director: Let's blackwash the characters!

4 I Feel Pretty

This is worse than a wrinkle in time, it makes it look like infinity war

Mega, I don't blame you for not putting this on the list. The film was so bad you didn't even remember it existed! - 445956

Amy Schumer is back at it again! - DapperPickle

5 Sherlock Gnomes

I wish this garbage (and the first movie) was under copyright law because this movie is copyright... 100% serious.

Gnomeo and Juliet=Romeo and Juliet
Sherlock Gnomes=Sherlock Holmes

We never asked for this. - Not_A_Weeaboo

I liked it. It had Johnny Depp (I love him) and Emily Blunt (the best actress in the world). - girlcool

This movie only exists for the pun in the title.

6 Life of the Party

Life of the Party is a Melissa McCarthy movie. And that’s all you need to know to not see it. There’s not much to say about it other than it’s not funny. In fact, it’s pretty much a terrible version of Extremely Goofy Movie. And that’s already a bad movie. So that’s really saying something. I honestly can’t think of a time when I ever found Melissa McCarthy funny. Even in that R rated Muppets film that’s coming out in August. That trailer didn’t make me laugh at all. Point is, Melissa McCarthy just isn’t funny. This movie was so painfully unfunny. - MegaSoulhero

7 Action Point

I actually liked this movie. If you have seen Jackass you know what to expect from this, and even though I was disappointed by the lack of stunts I thought it was funny. I also loved how they did exactly what happened with Action Park. But the ending was disappointing. 6/10 - MaxPap

Johnny Knoxville is back and he made a movie with an actual story! And it sucked! I get what he was trying to do. He wanted to make another movie with a bunch of dangerous stunts while actually having these stunts contribute to a story. It didn’t work out. What made his other films so great is that we actually know these are real people doing a bunch of real shenanigans for entertainment purposes. Like in Bad Grandpa, the extras in that movie aren’t actors. They’re giving real reactions because they don’t know what’s going on. In Action Point, the stunts are real, people really get hurt, but these stunts don’t mean anything when we don’t see the injury. They just get hurt and move on. I didn’t really find much humor from the movie. The actors are clearly just phoning it in. This movie was very disappointing. - MegaSoulhero

8 Solo: A Star Wars Story

I'm not a Star Wars fan, but the film was okay. - girlcool

Things I like about this movie:
1. the soundtrack
2. the darth maul appearance

the rest I hated.

A lot of Star Wars fans have pretty much given up on Star Wars at this point. Which is why this movie didn’t make a lot of money. I like the other three Disney Star Wars films, but this one I honestly didn’t care for. This was the most unnecessary movie to come from this franchise. The trailers however kinda got me excited. It looked like it would be a fun space adventure. There are enjoyable moments in the film, but I mostly found this film to be boring. There’s not really anything new or interesting we find out about Han Solo. There’s one scene where we find out how he got his last name, but did that really need any explanation? It also felt very forced. The other characters don’t get much development either. Some of the ones I thought would have larger roles ended up not being in the movie very long. L3-37 is such a horrible character that she gives Jar Jar a run for his money. Donald Glover as Lando was pretty cool. Definitely a highlight. Honestly, I thought this movie ...more - MegaSoulhero

9 The 15:17 to Paris

The train attack was not prevented in 2015. No lives were lost and a few people were injured as depicted in "The 15:17 to Paris" directed by Clint Eastwood.

Even though those high speed trains may look kind of funny, this movie was based on the 2015 attack that was prevented. It was 3 guys who prevented the shooter from killing the passengers. A few people were injured. Very sickening.

10 Proud Mary

The Contenders

11 Pacific Rim: Uprising

I really liked the first Pacific Rim movie. I know it’s not for everyone, but it’s still pretty entertaining. Unfortunately, the sequel is pretty much just another Independence Day Resurgence. Which isn’t a good thing. There are some pretty cool action scenes, but the writing is garbage. I hate John Boyega’s character so much. He’s way too full of himself. There’s also this whole thing with Charlie Day’s character being the villain. I already hated him in the first movie, but they make him even worse here. I really wanted to like this movie. So disappointed. - MegaSoulhero

12 Tomb Raider

Tomb Raider is the best video game movie ever! And that is really sad because this movie is painfully mediocre! First off, the casting of Lara Croft. I do not find this actress to be attractive in the slightest. Don’t people only play Tomb Raider because of how hot Lara Croft is? Plus, she’s not that great of an actress. The movie is full of clichés and is easily predictable. It uses elements from the games but doesn’t do anything to make them feel original. This is just an uninteresting film. I don’t know why it’s so hard to make a good video game movie. - MegaSoulhero

13 Winchester
14 Peter Rabbit

Screw James Bored-en - 445956

Peter Rabbit is the most recent film from Sony Pictures Animation and it kinda sucked. But it didn’t suck as much as I thought it would. There are actually some pretty funny jokes here. The writing is really that bad. Also, the CGI is amazing. They look and move like real bunnies. Unfortunately, there are also a lot of moments that made me shake my head. I’m not a fan of James Corden and I found his performance in this to be really bad. Domhnall Gleeson was great though. So was Daisy Ridley. Wait. Domhnall Gleeson and Daisy Ridley were both in this movie? Is this is Star Wars reuninion? Anyway, I enjoyed half of this movie. The other half, not so much. At least Sony is coming out with an animated movie later this year that actually looks pretty awesome. - MegaSoulhero

15 Death Wish
16 Overboard
17 Acrimony
18 Truth or Dare
19 Mute
20 Black Panther
21 Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom

This movie had a stupid plot. I don't get what people like about this film AT ALL.

22 Avengers: Infinity War

I really don't like Marvel movies.

23 Ready Player One

EASILY the single most overrated piece of GARBAGE of its entire decade so far, at least as far as movies are concerned (at the very least, Frozen was actually somewhat GOOD) - xandermartin98

24 The Cloverfield Paradox The Cloverfield Paradox
25 Blockers
26 Den of Thieves
27 Book Club
28 Tully
29 Ocean's Eight Ocean's Eight

This is 100% like Ghostbusters 2016 (probably I'd say better than that garbage I mentioned).
