Bad Movies 2020 (and beyond)
« on: January 15, 2020, 05:51:36 AM »
Saw this in the "Bad Movies 2019" thread

I think we can add "Dolittle" to the list. Getting slaughtered by critics
And decided that since 2019 has come and gone, we could use a thread for bad movies from this year and maybe even beyond. So, go ahead and talk all that shit about the movies that aren't worth seeing/are worth seeing because of how bad they are.

I thought this was gonna be a boring by the numbers adventure movie for little kids going by the trailers but it's starting to sound like someone got bored while making this movie and decided to make a terrible crass piece of trash where Robert Downey Jr keeps getting sprayed with farts by all kinds of mythical creatures.

The atmosphere will be electric when the Hitman & Corey Feldman meet up onscreen.

It looks like this ended up undergoing 21 days of reshoots with the director of such classics as "Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles" (the one which came out last decade), "Wrath of the Titans", "Battle Los Angeles", "Texas Chainsaw Massacre: The Begining" and "Darkness Falls" doing said reshoots.

Man like half of that shit isn't even true. I wish I had a lot of followers and a job in film journalism like this guy claims to have so I could get paid to make up bullshit that makes an extremely boring little kids movie sound interesting. The kids also laughed at the one fart in the movie.

That kind of tweet seems like advertising in order to get people to go see a super shitty movie that's going to lose a massive amount of money.

Seen a few headscratchers for sure so far in 2020.

The Turning: What in the EVERLASTING FUCK was this?!! I know the novel it was based off of had a very tenuous and ambiguous way to it, but how this got adapted into the massive confusion this film turned out to be....holy shit. It was bearable until it fell off the goddamn rails with the wonderfully shit-tastic "wait, the last fifteen minutes of utter illogical madness was just a dream" formula here. I absolutely hate when filmmakers do this without any proper context or logic. At that point, the film then reset to what I thought was "reality" but then may or may not have yet another dream sequence potentially and then it just straight up ended up ending so abruptly I thought maybe I accidentally fell asleep for awhile and missed some serious plot points. The ending made absolutely ZERO sense to me. This was one of those films that was just so terribly thought out and executed. It blew me away this got a mainstream release. I just didn't get it how studio execs thought this would be a hit. Some seriously weird shit here.

The Rhythm Section: Then came this slow, meandering, goddamn snorefest of a supposed thriller/action vehicle for Blake Lively. Her performance was ok, Jude Law had what felt more like a confusing and phoned in wtf kinda role, and the story in this was so shoddy and inept at actually creating an engaging narrative to follow and feel compelled to do so. Terrible character development all around and I didn't get much from the action/fight scenes although they were quite violent at points. I think this was trying to be an attempt at a Bond-like franchise mixed in with elements of Dragon Tattoo a bit. Ultimately, it felt more like something you have seen a million times before, and so much better in every instance. The tone was so damn dull too that it just felt like it needed to end much sooner than it did. And I guess this has been shelved for a year or two, and was originally over 45 minutes longer, yikes. I can't imagine the torture that would be to sit through that cut. And probably explains why it got dumped in the dead of winter mix.

I’m very confused who the intended audience for Fantasy Island is.  Also interesting that none of the advertising I’ve seen has had Mr. Roarke.

I was thinking it was just a bad generic teen horror movie until I saw the Fantasy Island title and was baffled at why they turned that property into a shitty looking horror film.

Probably wrong here but "Downhill" looks terrible. Given the cast and director/writer it shouldn't be but it just looks bad. 41 % on RT to back me up though

Nah it looks like crap. I don't think an American remake of Force Majeure works. I think making the couple much older is a decent idea, but casting Will Ferrell is a terrible idea.

Once again subjected myself to some torture lately....

Gretel and Hansel: Jesus christ, the mainstream horror drops this time of the year aren't usually this terrible, but after the bottoming out of The Turning, I thought....there can't be more others soon that are to the level of that. Was I wrong. This film is polarizing for sure, I've seen some very strong reviews of it and of course, bad ones. I'm certainly on the side of bad....the only redeeming quality I saw out of this was an eerie atmospheric vibe, visually striking cinematography at times, and the score was pretty awesome. The rest? Yikes. I had zero connection to any of these terribly written characters. The story was boring as fuck and it felt devoid of any logical or reasonable substance to drive the narrative. The third act took things to a point of confusion and ultimately, a bad ending.

Fantasy Island: HOLY FUCK THIS WAS THE WORST BLUMHOUSE FILM TO DATE. And that's saying something when they just churned out total shit on a stick with Black Christmas. I am dumbfounded how an actually interesting idea (rebooting the classic show into a horrror) ended up into this. First off, this barely felt a horror at all. Instead it was more a comedy, some intentional but mostly unintentional. Secondly, I've never and I mean NEVER seen any mainstream film suffer from SO FUCKING MUCH LACK OF LOGIC OR COMMON SENSE. The "fantasy" sequence made no sense at all in the big picture, and there was tons of gaps how these moments even would happen in the first place. Plus, similar to Black Christmas, we get THE BLACK BLOOD EFFECT. I absolutely hated every damn character in this, and couldn't even understand which characters were "real" or a fantasy effect in itself. You will see the confusion if you bother with this one, which I'd be hard pressed to advise. Maybe after smoking a fat joint and preparing yourself for a total clusterfuck of epic proportions. Don't even get me started on the multitude of swerves that just flat out made me laugh because they, again, made no fucking sense and also because they went to that well far too often in this. This took the term bad movie to an epic new level of such.

I missed out on Gretel and Hansel due to time constraints (I'll watch it later) but I'm not surprised to see it here.

Also, yeah, Fantasy Island. Hoooo boy.
