The Worst Movies Of 2018 So Far

Published

on

The 2018 box office delivered on some of the biggest movies of all-time. Among the blockbusters and award nominees are movies that you want to forget you saw.

2018 littered with movies that failed short of expectations. Some are concepts that should have stayed on a shelf in the studio. Others are so bad you just have to watch it. The year is not even over yet, so this list will surely grow by the end of the year.

Pacific Rim: Uprising
The sequel to Guillermo del Toro’s Pacific Rim was all over the place. The studio seemed to only want to cram kaiju and Jaegers on the screen to hell with a story that makes any sense. John Boyega’s charisma couldn’t save most of this movie. This movie was created around the actions set pieces with no real thoughts on the rules of the world it’s trying to build. Even the mech fights are boring and forgettable.

The 15:17 to Paris
The actual story is a harrowing account and the soldiers — who were able to disarm a machine gun-wielding terrorist while unarmed themselves — were even recruited by Eastwood to play themselves in the movie.

The problem here is when keeping it real goes wrong. Eastwood’s decision to use the real soldiers from the incident instead of real actors really hurt the film. The bad acting takes away from the tension that the movie is trying to create. The lack of character to development for patriotism and valor makes the real event feel fake.

A Wrinkle In Time
Some books just don’t translate to the big screen. Ava DuVernay’s adaptation of Madeleine L’Engle’s classic 1962 YA novel A Wrinkle in Time failed on so many levels. You want to love it for most of the cast but you can’t. The movie is a prime example when you use too much CGI from flying cabbage creatures to shifting dimensions. None of it feels like it could exist in any galaxy. Audiences walked away with more questions than answers.

One more note, you never, I repeat never, use love to answer space travel.

Acrimony
Taraji P. Henson is one of the most talented women in Hollywood. But Henson is finding it hard to match the success of Hidden Figures. Tyler Perry’s Aricomony is a tough watch. The entire time you screaming in your head Taraji, you are better than this. The movie is a slow drama with characters at odds with their motives. The movie desperately wants to be a new version of Fatal Attraction, but maybe that’s one story that doesn’t need to be retold.

Gotti
John Travolta portrayal of New York kingpin John Gotti just fails on so many levels. The movie never really comes to together, the film takes every gangsta movie cliche throws it at the screen. The movie was doomed on arrival a 0% on Rotten Tomatoes and a 24% on Metacritic.

The Stakes Are High In The First Trailer For ‘The Informer’

Published

on

Aviron Pictures has released the first trailer for their upcoming thriller The Informer.

In the film, honorably discharged Special Ops soldier Pete Koslow’s (Joel Kinnaman) world is turned upside-down when he is jailed after a fight to protect his wife (Ana de Armas). He’s given a chance for early release by becoming an informant for the FBI (Academy Award nominees Rosamund Pike and Clive Owen) and using his covert skills in an operation to take down The General, the most powerful crime boss in New York. But when the FBI sting meant to finally earn Koslow his freedom results in the death of an undercover NYPD cop, Koslow finds himself caught in the crossfire between the mob and the FBI. The General insists Koslow takes the heat and sends him back to prison to spearhead a drug operation from inside, and the FBI affirms that going back to jail to do The General’s bidding is the only way for Koslow to keep his deal with them alive.

The Informer hits theaters March 22, 2019. Joel Kinnaman stars with Rosamund Pike, Clive Owen, Common, and Ana de Armas.
