The year has come and go, but the films remained. I hardly can watch every single films released this year (I have TV shows to watch!), but I have sit in a fair share of disappointing films. Now, I won’t called these films absolutely horrible, you might liked it better than I do. However, with certain films come certain expectations and as it happen, these 11 films failed to meet mine.
PS: I don’t rank the films, but the lower it goes, the worst it disappoints.
Men in Black: International
This is not Thor: Ragnarok, but they do have similar actors, though. Perhaps it’s good time to retire the franchise?
The Lion King
Literally watching the same film but with real-looking animals and jungle? I don’t know guys, I was expecting more.
Disney Executive: “Criticize us all you want, but the film grossed over US$ 1 Billion, Mesh. How much do you have in your bank account?”
Me: *Have an existential crisis*
Cute elephants, bad Michael Keaton. Cute Colin Farrell, bad Eva Green. Do you see the pattern?
This film doesn’t help Mrs Hathaway this year. And, why does she kept on playing con artist?
Talk about disappointment not knowing you have a doppelganger inside the city’s tunnel. And, ooh, they come out at night to stalk you.
I don’t always watch Bollywood films, but when I do, I picked the worst one. Gorgeous setting though, wish there were no actors in it.
It Chapter Two
Two hours of not being able to kill Penny Wise. Even the gorgeous adult actors couldn’t help the horrendous script to stay afloat (get it?). Also, poor Richie didn’t have a chance to come out in the end.
You killed Mystique off to bring in Jessica Chastain as a weird alien? Have you heard of Brotherhood of Mutants?
I’m sorry Elizabeth Banks, but… yeah, NO. Also if you’re curious why the film flopped, read my reasons here.
Not a great year for James McAvoy either. Despite his splendid performance, Glass lacks… Suspense? Thrill? Mystery?
Maleficent: Mistress of Evil
Writer: “How about we make Angelina Jolie and Michelle Pfeiffer fight each other?”
Disney Executives: “Would it make us tons of money?”
Writer: “We predict, it will make half a billion dollar.”
Disney Executives: “We are in. Market it as a feminist film, shall we?”
Meanwhile, here are the movies that aren’t so bad, but worth to mention:
Star Wars Return of Skywalker
How To Train Your Dragon 3
Avengers: End Game
Where’d You Go, Bernadette
Yes, I know, I know. But, I haven’t seen Cats, Hellboy, Serenity or other disappointing films this year. And why should I?
