2017’s Biggest Disappointing Films

While we looked at the top films of 2017 in our previous post, it’s also important to realize that the year had it’s fair share of bombs and disappointments as well. Here are the worst films of the year that if you haven’t already seen them, you will want to avoid.

The Dark Tower: After years of trying to get an adaptation of Stephen King’s magnum opus to the big screen you would have thought what finally arrived would be flawless, but instead we got something that doesn’t really follow the first novel in the series at all. It’s not how long it took to get the theatrical treatment though that’s the biggest questions, it’s why Idris Elba and Matthew McConaughey would have agreed to star in this film in the first place is the biggest mystery of all. 

Transformers: The Last Knight: Can we just end this series already? Each addition just gets worse, and really all the movie makers are doing is ruining the childhood idols of the adults that still go to see them. Unfortunately with a Bumblebee spin-off in the works, it doesn’t look like the giant, transforming robots will be going anywhere, any time soon.

Baywatch:  The first question any movie maker needs to ask before making a movie is, why does this movie need to be made. It’s very clear that question wasn’t asked before Baywatch started filming. And to make it worse, The Rock was so over the top with his comedy that you hoped someone would punch him to shut him up.

Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets: And the award for the film of the year that looked the prettiest, yet had no substance, goes to Valerian. Not only was this film bad, but Cara Delevingne was somehow worse. Please, can somebody tell her that she’s not a good actress and to stop popping up in starring roles?

Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man Tell No Tales: If Johnny Depp hoped his waning career would rebound with this fifth film in the series, he was sadly mistaken. Sure it had a few fun moments, but unfortunately most of them were at the start of the film, which made you stuck watching the rest of it bored to tears.

Ghost in the Shell: Scarlett Johansson was a poor choice to star in this film in the first place, yet it’s understandable why they hired her considering her strong fan base. Even without the controversy surrounding the whitewashing of her role though, the film didn’t stick to the source material and made the plot much more confusing than it needed to be. 

The Mummy: The Dark Cinematic Universe wasn’t supposed to start this way. It was supposed to make people interested in seeing a series of movies based around Universal’s classic monsters, but instead it just made people not care. Now it seems like the further projects in the series are as dead as The Mummy was.

The Circle:  Tom Hanks and Emma Watson starred in this film that should have been good, but just wasn’t. Its problem was that the supposedly relevant topic was very unrealistic and over the top. If you want to make a movie that raises serious issues, make sure people don’t have to suspend their disbelief so much that it was hard to follow along.

The House: This just in, Will Ferrell is treading dangerously close to Adam Sandler territory when it comes to making a good movie these days. The trailers looked good, but really it was just because they had all the good parts of the film in it. 

Life: You’d think that a movie with Jake Gyllenhaal and Ryna Reynolds in it would be good, but you’d be wrong. Reynolds is *SPOILER* killed off early, and the story never really went anywhere other than being an Alien rip-off.

Marvel Studios Gives Fans An Inside Look At Captain Marvel

It’s alright to admit it if you don’t know every superhero that’s been appearing on the big screen lately. Other than the bigger names like Iron Man, Spider-Man and Captain America, the average movie-goer may not recognize the character they are supposed to be cheering for. Even comic book fans may not known everyone, especially the more obscure characters. During the after-credits scene of Avengers: Infinity War many people had no idea what the scene meant. To help combat that, and to help fans get ready for the next big film in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, Marvel studios released a special look video for Captain Marvel.

The special look video is essentially a new trailer for the film, but it’s arranged in such a way that it helps you get familiar with the title character. It gives you a bit of information as to who Captain marvel is and what’s she’s doing back on Earth. It also gives you information about the Skrulls she is hunting, and the Kree, for whom she works. Some of the footage is reused from the previous trailer, while some of it hasn’t been seen before. You also get to see a bit more of the humor we can expect from the film.  

Captain Marvel, starring  Brie Larson and Samuel L. Jackson opens in theaters March 8.
