5 Worst Films of 2012

I’ve seen a lot of films this year, and for some reason I feel like I’ve seen more bad films this year than I have in a very long time.  These 5 however are the lowest of the low, and the absolute worst of the worst.


5.  Cloud Atlas

I’ve heard the book is critically acclaimed and blah blah blah.  The movie is a complete piece of garbage.  It makes absolutely zero sense and is obnoxiously long.  I almost fell asleep twice during the middle of it.  Too many timelines and sub-plots mixing together.  Good luck with this one.

Spider-Man, wounded, is covered in a spider web with New York City in the background and as a reflection in his mask. Text at the bottom of the reveals the title, release date, official site of the film, rating and production credits.

4. The Amazing Spider-Man

This isn’t exactly as bad as it is completely unnecessary and uncalled for.  It’s basically the same exact film as the original one…not to mention rebooted a mere decade later only.  It’s ok as a film goes, but why?  Pointless.

Group picture of the cast. Alyson Hannigan has a baby bottle in hand instead of a flute. The pie has only a small slice left, indicating this is the final film in the series.

3.  American Reunion

Some characters won’t stay dead no matter how much you wish they just would.  There’s absolutely no reason for this gang of misfits to have a reunion and bore us to death with tired jokes.  Getting caught humping pies and other things is only funny for so long. Snoozefest.

2.  John Carter of Mars

Easily the worst acted film of the year.   Taylor Kitsch almost ruins his entire career here.  We’ve seen all of this before in a science fiction film as well.  It’s all force fed, digested and thrown back up on the screen.  A jumble of confusion.

1.  Cosmopolis

The film makes no sense. Robert Pattinson strolls around town in his stretch limousine trying to get a haircut while acting like a robot. I love David Cronenberg, but this is hands down his worst film ever.  And yes I get it. I get the whole point of the film.  I got it in the first 5 minutes and then had it beaten in to my skull from there on out.
