Well you’ve seen Dave’s best movies of 2015 now it is time for his 2015 Worst Movies List… just count those unnecessary sequels.
1. Into The Woods
Not many movies over my journey as a film critic have made me want to leave the cinema during a media screening, but Into The Woods did. I stayed… but gee I wish I hadn’t.
John Jarratt has starred in one of Australia’s best horror movies and now he also stars in the one worst. StalkHer was a dull snoozefest horror that seemed to strangely glorify domestic violence.
3. Jupiter Ascending
The Wachowski’s have delivered some real duds in recent years and Jupiter Ascending kept that going. One of the worst screenplays of not only this year but of all time.
4. Dumb And Dumber To
The first movie in this franchise was a comedy classic, but sadly this unnecessary follow-up barely provided any laughs.
5. Paul Blart: Mall Cop 2
Like Dumb & Dumber the first Paul Blart was kind of okay… but the sequel was terrible.
6. Penguins Of Madagascar
The Madagascar series of animated films has produced some gems along the way but the spin-off Penguins film was one of this year’s low lights.
His dogs weren’t the only unwanted things that Johnny Depp brought to Australia this year. Mortdecai should have quarantined and put down just for being terrible. Depp even managed to drag down the normally dependable Gwyneth Paltrow and Ewan McGregor.
8. Magic Mike XXL
Like so many other films this year this was an unnecessary sequel. Magic Mike XXL seemed to disregard everything that happened in the first film and just went for sex appeal. I’d say terrible screenplay but I don’t think there was one.
Now I love Shakespeare so this was a film I was looking forward to all year. Sadly the fact that the actors mumbled their way through their performances meant the film was almost unwatchable.
10. Ruben Guthrie
The screenwriter for Ruben Guthrie only went to film school for one day, they learned how to write cliches and that’s all. Terrible film.
Just missed out:
