When it comes to cinema, there’s a vast sea of masterpieces and hidden gems, and then there are the train wrecks that make you question the very existence of the film industry. Here are twelve terrible movies that members of an online community suggest you should avoid at all costs.
1. Gotti (2018)
This film attempted to portray the notorious mobster John Gotti’s life, but it fell flat. According to many users, the movie struggles with poor writing, lackluster performances, and a disjointed narrative. John Travolta’s portrayal of Gotti was far from the charismatic gangster he was supposed to embody.
2. God’s Not Dead (2014)
While some bad movies can be amusing, this one left viewers with more than just disappointment. The script was so poorly written that it felt like “it was written by a 10-year-old, but that’s an insult to ten-year-olds”. The film attempted to tackle sensitive religious topics but pandered to one side while alienating the others.
3. Brahms: The Boy 2 (2020)
The first part of The Boy franchise was a passable horror film, but its sequel was a complete letdown. It failed to build on the intriguing premise of its predecessor and instead delivered cliche jump scares and an unimpressive plot. The character, Brahms, lost his eerie charm, making this horror flick feel like just another forgettable addition to the genre.
4. Jurassic World: Dominion (2022)
“If I knew a child that I hated who loved dinosaurs, I would take them to see this film,” comments a user. For fans of the original Jurassic Park, this one was a disappointing experience. While the film boasted impressive visuals and special effects, it lacked the heartland magic that made the first movie a timeless classic.
5. Vivarium (2019)
With an intriguing concept at its core, Vivarium initially seemed promising. However, the film quickly devolved into a mess of a plot and missed opportunities. The exciting premise was wasted, disappointing audiences as they witnessed a once-promising movie turn into garbage.
6. Movie 43 (2013)
The film is an anthology of comedy sketches that are so cringe-worthy that you will want to stop watching after the first few minutes. Movie 43 boasts an all-star cast, but even their talent couldn’t save this train wreck. The sketches are tasteless, unfunny, and offensive, making viewers question why such a star-studded ensemble would be associated with such a disaster.
7. Fifty Shades of Gray (2015)
The trilogy was hailed as a steamy and provocative adaptation of the best-selling novel. Unfortunately, the film adaptation managed to turn a racy subject into something utterly dull and devoid of chemistry.
The wooden performances and lack of depth in character development left audiences feeling cold and disinterested in the supposed passion of the story.
8. Swept Away (2002)
Directed by Guy Richie, the film was expected to be a thrilling adventure. Unfortunately, it turned out to be an agonizingly dull experience. The lack of a coherent plot and engaging storyline left viewers yearning for anything to redeem this lackluster film. “There was no story. It was so dull! I ended up walking out,” comments one.
9. Rollergator (1996)
The title alone should give you a hint that the movie is not going to be a cinematic experience. It follows the story of a teenage girl and her talking, roller-skating alligator. The film’s bizarre premise and poor execution make it one of those so-bad-it’s-not-even-funny kinds of movies.
10. The Kissing Booth (2018)
This teen romance film was meant to tug at heartstrings, but instead, it elicited a cringe-worthy response from its audience. With a formulaic plot and cliched characters, The Kissing Booth failed to offer anything original or engaging.
11. Open House (2018)
The Netflix original movie attempted to mix horror and suspense but ended up being a mind-numbing bore. The lack of direction, a sluggish pace, and an unsatisfying conclusion left viewers wondering why they wasted their time.
12. Mac and Me (1988)
When you think a movie about an alien might have some potential, Mac and Me turns into an outright McDonald’s commercial. Interrupting the lackluster plot for a product placement advertisement left viewers feeling like they were being taken for a ride.
