The Worst Movies of 2017

Welcome to the Worst. 

There’s a lot to celebrate in 2017 that was awful. One of them, however, wasn’t movies (or tv, or video games). So I hesitate to put out a list of the worst of 2017 without a little bit of context.

First, no easy slams. Sure, there were your Monster Trucks and Geostormsbut those films were always kind of destined to be cringy and terrible.

Second, I’m not going to fall for the trap of mistaking something that wasn’t made for me with something being objectively terrible. I actually kind of liked The My Little Pony movie (its strong anti-Trump themes were incredibly refreshing), and while by the end of 50 Shades Darker I really just wanted Christian Grey to have died in that helicopter crash, I recognize there are people who love this story and these characters. And I’m not going to crap all over them just because something isn’t to my taste. And in the year of The Disaster Artistwe can hopefully celebrate the weirdos who put out strange independent films because of their passion.

Third, besides, there are much worse things. And so I’ve tried to concentrate on them– collecting 10 “films” that should’ve “worked” for me. Several of these are big budget movies or done by experienced filmmakers who should know better. Others are by directors capable of much better. In fact, if there’s one common theme for these, it’s the “Spider-Man Rule” of movies– “with great filmmaking power comes great filmmaking responsibility.” So I’m going to hold these people to higher standards, especially if their efforts were backed by hundreds of millions of dollars of budget.

Let’s be clear that what gets produced in Hollywood is a zero-sum game: the money put behind any of these films is money that didn’t go to un-produced films.  And while I’m glad the streaming outlets are putting resources behind great films, let’s also recognize that giving money to Woody Allen or David Ayer (#9 and 10 on this list) is money that didn’t go someplace else to someone more deserving. I can at least give props to someone like David Lowery who put the money he made from Pete’s Dragon into making his passion project (#8 on this list). I only wish it had turned out better for him.

So, then, here you are: the worst of 2017:

10. Bright – Yes, I’m including streaming movies on here (they’re in my best-of list, too, so it’s only fair), especially since this was a BFD that Netflix was making this blockbuster-type movie. I just don’t know what went wrong here, but this is almost incomprehensible. I like the idea of mixing high fantasy and gritty urban, but this was not the way to do it. The attempts at social commentary fall so flat they’re almost laughable. Will Smith, how do you keep ending up releasing movies in December that end up in my worst of lists? You’re on notice for 2018.

wonder wheel9. Wonder Wheel – It’s like Woody Allen is inviting us to say, “Hey, maybe it’s time we talked about how this filmmaker treats his female characters.” Not a good time for this conversation for you, Mr. Allen. And Jim Belushi and Justin Timberlake. I’m just left flabbergasted. And if this ended up on your best of list, I’m even more flabbergasted. Just go read this.

8. A Ghost Story – A piece of pretentious nonsense that decides to put its “message” in the mouth of its most abrasive character, a know-it-all drunk hipster, and beat you over the head with it in a ridiculous monologue. Also, that didn’t need to be Casey Affleck under that sheet. It could’ve been literally anyone. And while I didn’t know about the allegations about his treatment of women before I reviewed Manchester By the Sea, I did know about them here. And it’s baffling to me this ends up on anyone’s best of list. Oh, except that scene where Rooney Mara grief-eats a whole pie was legit.

7. The Book of Henry – What the hell was this?!?! This is apparently the movie that got Colin Trevorrow fired from making the next Star Wars, and after seeing it, I don’t blame anyone for making that call. And inexplicable turn takes this from tearjerker over death of savant child to. . . dead child walking his grieving mother through how to kill their abusive next door neighbor and get away with it. Wow. Just wow.

6. Transformers: The Last Knight – We don’t expect much from Michael Bay and his Transformers movies, and this reaffirmed that. We had Grimlock, King of the Dinobots, review the movie for us, and his summary was, “Grimlock small dinobot brain, but even Grimlock know that super dumb.”

Snowman-Poster5. The Snowman – Why, Mister Police? We Gave You All The Clues. When the audience laughs at what are supposed to be tense moments, you know you have a problem. This was supposed to be Zodiac meets Let the Right One In and instead is more Manos, the Hands of Fate.

4. The Emoji Movie – Still unclear why this movie got made, except that somehow it managed to beat the far superior Atomic Blonde (in my top 10) at the box office its first week in release. America, this is why we can’t have nice things. My daughter (the target demo for the movie) texted her friends she’s never cringed so much in a movie. Smart kid.

3. Downsizing – Small review: this movie was b.s. You can read the rest here.

2. Split – This set the bar for bad movies all year long. It was so bad, it actively ruined several other movies for me, specifically in its attempts to tie itself to Shyamalan’s Unbreakable. I don’t expect much from him, but I don’t expect it to be this bad.

1. mother! – throughout this list I’ve gone after a lot of hacks: Bay, Shyamalan, Trevorrow, Ayer. But Darren Aronofsky should know better. This was impeccably shot and put together by a filmmaker who knows what he’s doing. But what he’s doing here is 100% bad.

And there it is. A load of terrible movies.

Agree? Disagree? Did I miss something egregious? Let us know what you think, and may 2018 give us better than these ten sorry flicks.

Spider-Man: Homecoming Opens with $117 Million, and $250 million Worldwide

Spider-Man: Homecoming was the top film this weekend with a reported $117 million worldwide. That is the second best opening for a Spider-Man film barely beating the 2002 original (neither of those are adjusted for inflation). It’s also the largest opening for a single character for Marvel since 2008’s Iron Man. The film also earned $140 million at the foreign box office for a total of $257 million.

The film had the third largest opening of the year in between Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2‘s $146.5 million and Wonder Woman‘s $103.2 million. The film still has to open in France, Germany, Spain, Japan, and China.

Despicable Me 3 came in second place with an estimated $34 million to bring its domestic total to $149 million. Worldwide the film has earned $447.6 million.

Baby Driver continues to overperform coming in third with $12.8 million to bring its domestic total to $56.8 million with $14 million at the foreign box office for a worldwide total of $70.9 million. With a budget of $34 million, the film’s a success.

Wonder Woman added $10.1 million to its domestic total to come in fourth. With $377 million at the foreign box office the film has earned $745.8 million worldwide so far. There’s a good chance the film will pass Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 domestically in the next week or two.

Rounding out the top five was Transformers: The Last Knight which earned an estimated $6.3 million. The film stands at $118.9 million domestically and $494.6 million worldwide.

Next week sees the opening of War for the Planet of the Apes which will create an interesting competition for first place. Expect a tight race driven by the film’s strong word of mouth.

In other comic movie news….

Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 added $846,000 domestically to bring its domestic total to $385.5 million and $857.7 million worldwide.

Logan gained abouit $200,000 worldwide over the last week.

Smurfs: The Lost Village marches along adding another $1 million worldwide over the week

We’ll be back in an hour with a deeper look at this year’s comic adaptations.

Despicable Me 3 Wins the Box Office. Baby Driver Overperforms for Second

Despicable Me 3 won the weekend box office with $75.4 million, which is about $10 million less than Despicable Me 2. That amount is also about $8 million shy of what was predicted for its opening. The film received an “A-” CinemaScore and was about 50/50 male and female. 69% of the viewers were families and 50% were under the age of 13.

The film opene up overseas two weeks ago and added 46 new territories this past weekend. The film brougt in $95.6 million from international box offices for a total of $116.9 million internationally and $192.3 million worldwide so far. There’s still 15 territories to go.

In second place was Baby Driver for Edgar Wright which broughin about $21 million over the three-day weekend and about $30 million over five days. That’s the largest opening for a Wright film and solid buzz drove the film’s earnings higher. That openeing beat expectations, though we expected it to overpeform due to positive buzz. The film received an “A-” CinemaScore with an audience that was 55% male and 61% age 25 and older. You can read our review.

In third place was last week’s champ Transformers: The Last Knight which added $17 million to its total to bring it to $102.1 million domestically. The film also earned $68 million at the international box office with some larger markets still to open. Despite poor reviews the film has earned $429.9 million over two weeks.

Wonder Woman came in fourth place adding $16.1 million to its domestic total to bring it to $346.6 million. The film also crossed another milestone and so far sits at $708.4 million worldwide.

Rounding out the top five was Cars 3 which added $9.5 million to bring its domestic total to bring that to $120.7 million. Worldwide the film has earned $173.8 million.

As far as comic related films…

Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 added $1.4 million to its domestic total to bring that to $383.3 million domestically and $854.5 million worldwide.

Logan added $500,000 over the past week to bring its worldwide total to $615.9 million.

Smurfs: The Lost Village added about $1 million to its total over the week to bring its worldwide take to $194.8 million.

We’ll be back in an hour to dive further into where the comic films stand this year.

Transformers Wins the Weekend, and Cars 3 and Wonder Woman Tie for Second

Transformers: The Last Knight won the weekend with $45.3 million over the three days and $69.1 million domestically since Wednesday.

That’s the lowest opening for the franchise. The last that opened on a Wednesday earned $162.6 million over the five days and $97.8 million for the weekend. While it was a low opening, it was on par with the expectations for the industry.

Internationally, the film did better earning an estimated $196.2 million with a franchise high in China of $123.4 million.

The film was 57% male, 29% under the age of 18, but earned an “A” CinemaScore again showing fans love it while critics didn’t.

More interestingly, in second place it looks like a tie with Cars 3 and Wonder Woman both earning an estimated $25.2 million. That’s just a 39% drop for Wonder Woman, which is impressive.

Cars 3 is now up to $99.9 million while Wonder Woman stands at $318.4 million. Cars 3 has earned $141.3 million worldwide while Wonder Woman has earned $652.9 million.

In fourth place was 47 Meter Down which brought in $7.4 million and the top five was topped with All Eyez on Me with $5.9 million.

We’ll be back in an hour with a deeper look at comic films in 2017.

Movie Review: Transformers: The Last Knight

Before I dive into things, I want to say, I’ve really enjoyed Michael Bay‘s first Transformers film with the subsequent three each being a bit worse for wear. None of it is high brow action but each film has its own charm in their own way. So, going into Transformers: The Last Knight I expected much of the same, a film that I could turn my brain off and enjoy and maybe be a little surprised with a tease of the Hasbro extended universe. Almost 2.5 hours later I was angry and wanted my money back. I saw the movie for free at a press screening. I still wanted my money back.

The gist of the story is confusing and all over the place smashing together numerous conceps we’ve seen in the comics and animated series, all of which were done better there. The story basically has Optimus floating in space where he comes across Cybertron and learns it is a dead planet. It can survive but to do so it must suck the energy from Earth. On Earth, Transformers are landing more and more each day seeking refuge from the destroyed Cybertron. We’re never fully explained what happened or why they’re fleeing but everyone is getting the hell out of dodge. And, the people of Earth aren’t fans of that. They’ve formed a new defense force to stop the Transformer threat, hunting them and their collaborators down. Throw in some weird history involving the Knights of the Round Table and you’ve got a story that has too many ideas and not enough focus.

What’s clear early on in the film that I’m not their target audience. Transformers: The Last Knight is aimed for the kids and that’s quite evident from the young kids who kick off the movie to the various character recruited including baby Transformers (what now!?) and new ones that make the stereotypes of the last few films look outright progressive. Everything about this film screams poorly thought out and focused on one goal, to sell shit.

Part of that “poorly thought out” is the lack of focus. The comedy that has existed in previous films is more front and center with a greater spin on purile humor. Instead of Bumblebee urinating on someone, we instead have Grimlock eating a car being scolded and slobber flying all over (and when did green liquid become such a thing!?).

But the biggest shame of it all, I didn’t care about any of it. Megatron’s henchmen are so bad and I was so annoyed by their existence that I thought their being dispatched was a mercy killing for the audience. Plot lines are started and stopped with details dropped all the time. Grimlock and the Dinobots begin a battle then the scene shifts and we don’t hear about them for the rest of the film. Megatron heads to England but we don’t see him until the last segment of the film, his travels ignored. The big reveal about Earth is brought up getting fans excited but is then dropped until the end teasing us Transformers 6. A medalion searches for the right wearer and a Transformer has it but it’s never explained why that Transformer has it or where it came from. Character randomly change outfits in between scenes. The ending that just leaves things in a way that makes what’s to come baffling. I could go on and on about the failures of the film.

Bay’s entire film is one “gag” scene setting up the next with a plot loosley added to create a narrative that makes absolutely no sense. It also has no real vision either. There’s ample opportunity to tease G.I. Joe, ROM, and even M.A.S.K. to create some excitement and set things up to come in the anticipated Hasbro connected movie universe. At least that would have been something. Instead, every opportunity is squandered.

The actors too seem to phone it in. Mark Wahlberg seems both annoyed at what he’s doing and in to it all. Anthony Hopkins… I have no idea what Bay has on the actor to do what he did. Josh Duhamel returns… Laura Haddock plays a British Megan Fox. The 16 year old Isabela Moner is sexed up to creepy levels that left me the viewer uncomfortable. About the only entertainment is Jerrod Carmichael who pops in and out of it all as to serve as a prop for the next “gag” or to deliver some humorous line. The actors who got to provide their voices were the lucky ones as they don’t have to have their faces associated with this film, just sullying their voices instead.

I feel like the entire film can be summed up by a line delivered by the talented Tony Hale whose character is “JPL Engineer.” He seriously states, “I believe in science.” That’s quality writing there.

The movie is bad in almost every way. The writing. The action. The humor. The length. I struggle to find any redeeming quality other than the fact it exists to be made fun of.

With so many other quality films in the theater right now, there’s little reason to see this one. This is one of the worst films I’ve seen in my life. That’s not an exageration. I was angry when I left the theater. If this is a sign of things to come, please don’t! I can’t recommend the movie at all. Spend your money and time elsewhere.

Overall Rating: 1.0

 

Grimlock Reviews Transformers: The Last Knight

Three years ago, unable to cope with the awfulness that was the last Transformers movie, I outsourced my review to Grimlock, King of the Dinobots. Feeling similarly stricken and unable to comment on what I’ve just seen, I again phoned my old pal and asked him to help me review this one.

Me Grimlock, angry about new Transformers movie.

Michael Bay take hundreds of millions of dollars and blow them up and still make it look boring! Why can you no make Transformers fun?

Grimlock fun. Dinobots fun. Grimlock only in movie for five minutes. Decepticons attack Autobots in abandoned junkyard in Badlands, North Dakota. Dinobots there! Dinobots can fight! But no– Michael Bay move action to abandoned small town. Somehow ghost town in North Dakota have two giant art deco skyscrapers. Why? What small town is this? And why heroes going there? And why they go up into building to flee Decepticons? So Marky Mark Wahlberg can fall out of giant elevator? Even Grimlock with small brain understand that dumb.

This movie have more plotholes than explosions. And it have lots of explosions! They just not fun.

And no think Grimlock just sour grapes he not in movie. You know who else not in movie much? Optimus Prime. Why?!?! Me King Grimlock, but me know fan favorite and franchise leader! Why no Prime? When Prime fight in finale, it good movie. But stupid movie decide that it better for Prime to be on Cybertron most of movie, and then somehow he tricked into being bad guy when he come back? Grimlock small dinobot brain, but even Grimlock know that super dumb.

Everyone in movie dumb. No one smart. Even smart English people like Anthony Hopkins not smart. He what stupid person think smart person is. And me Grimlock know what stupid people think. He also have Transformer butler, played by Jim Carter— he also butler on Downton Abbey. He and Anthony Hopkins best part of movie, and they try to have fun, but it just not enough. Michael Bay make Grimlock hate Downton Abbey. Grimlock will murder Michael Bay for this.

Hopkins tells everyone Merlin and King Arthur work with Transformers, make secret society that protect secret of Transformers on Earth. That dumb. Everyone look for Merlin staff because it actually Transformer powerful object that can restore Cybertron, but would kill Earth. Who care?!? It big space macguffin. So is “important” talisman Marky Mark find. It not important. Just stupid. Movie need actual plot.

In other Transformer movie, at least there some big action scene that fun. Nothing fun here. Only stupid. Only explosion. It not offensive same way Stepin Fetchit robots were in Revenge of the Fallen, or ruin childhood like Leonard Nimoy in Dark of the Moon. Those movies aggressively bad. But this also not have anything good in it. Boring. Need more Dinobots. Needs more Optimus Prime.

Grimlock want his two and a half hours back.

Cars 3 Easily Speeds Into First, While Wonder Woman Crosses $570 Million

As expected, Cars 3 won the weekend box office earning an estimated $53.5 million in its first weekend at the domestic box office. It also earned $21.3 million form a handful of foreign markets. That opening is one of the lowest for a Pixar film, just a handful of films have done worse and the lowest opening for a Cars film by about $6.5 million. The series is made for licensing though and altogether the series has earned over $10 billion in merchandising, and that number was from six years ago! So, the box office isn’t all there’s at with this film. Audiences liked what they saw with the film earning an “A” CinemaScore and the that audience was pretty split with 51% being male, 75% families, and 35% under the age of 13.

In second place was Wonder Woman which added $40.8 million to its domestic total to bring that to $274.6 million and $39.5 million from 62 markets at the foreign box office to bring that to $297.2 million. This is the second highest third weekend ever for Warner Bros., the first being The Dark Knight which earned $42.6 million and the third being The Dark Knight Rises with $35.7 million. The film has also now earned more than Suicide Squad did at this point though that film debuted with $62.7 million more. The movie is also outpacing Man of Steel. With $571.8 million so far, the film should be making Warner Bros. and DC quite happy.

In third place was the Tupac Shakur film All Eyez on Me which opened with $27.1 million despite negative critical reviews. The audience liked it giving it an “A-” CinemaScore. We predicted the film would beat expectations and it did so.

The Mummy dropped to fourth place with $13.9 million. The film has earned just $56.5 million domestically but has earned $239.1 million at the foreign box office. Not great for a $125 million film, but not a disaster film.

Wrapping up the top five was 47 Meters Down with $11.5 million which beat the $10 million studio estimate.

Out of the top five, it was a rough night for Rough Night which earned just $8 million. The film was estimated to earn somewhere in the low teens to 20s, so expect this film to quickly go away, especially with a “C+” CinemaScore.

In other comic movie news….

Smurfs: The Lost Village added about $1.6 million to its total over the week.

Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 added about $16.2 million to its worldwide total over the week.

Logan also continued to bring in the dollars with about $40,000 domestically and $6 million worldwide.

This coming week sees the opening of Transformers: The Last Knight which will most likely come in first place (and go on to earn 3/4 of a million by the time it’s done).

We’ll be back in an hour for further analysis of this year’s comic adaptations.

Transformers: The Last Knight – Extended Big Game Spot

The Last Knight shatters the core myths of the Transformers franchise, and redefines what it means to be a hero. Humans and Transformers are at war, Optimus Prime is gone. The key to saving our future lies buried in the secrets of the past, in the hidden history of Transformers on Earth. Saving our world falls upon the shoulders of an unlikely alliance: Cade Yeager (Mark Wahlberg); Bumblebee; an English Lord (Sir Anthony Hopkins); and an Oxford Professor (Laura Haddock).

There comes a moment in everyone’s life when we are called upon to make a difference. In Transformers: The Last Knight, the hunted will become heroes. Heroes will become villains. Only one world will survive: theirs, or ours.

Transformers: The Last Knight is coming to theaters June 2017!
