The 14 Biggest Movie Flops And Dumpster Fires Of 2016


2016 was a terrible year for humanity.

A lot of crying, a lot of broken hearts. I think if there was a reason to have a time machine, it'd be to go back in time and stop the horrible things that happened this year.

That being said, there have been some amazing movies that happened this year... this article will include none of them.

So grab a loved one and let's get through this...

1. Batman v. Superman: Dawn Of Justice was critically panned because it was so long, overstuffed with pointless scenes and too many villains.

2. Independence Day: Resurgence had no Will Smith, a penchant for cheesiness, and a strong focus on the junior actors and led to its demise.

3. Suicide Squad was one of the most painful things to get through in 2016. Joker was a bust, the story was convoluted, and just felt weird throughout.

4. Zoolander 2 was the answer to the question, "What is a sequel that will ruin the original?" Despite all the guest stars, it just felt hollow and not enjoyable for us.

5. The Angry Birds Movie was NOT as addicting as the app it was based on. Truthfully, I'm not sure why it was made...

Oh wait, yes I do.

6. Warcrafttook itself WAY too seriously. It was just no fun to watch.

The CGI-heavy film was based on the popular MMOPRG World Of Warcraft.

7. London Has Fallen was a GIANT mess with Gerard Butler in a badly-produced film that had TOO many knife fights. It begged the question, "Why did Olympus Has Fallen need a sequel again?"

8. Alice Through The Looking Glass was soulless and didn't have the same charm as the original and was chalk filled with CGI characters that made you wish they'd stuck with just one.

And the journey Alice takes is not interesting to follow.

9. Why? Why? Why was there a My Big Fat Greek Wedding 2? The first was a treat to watch years ago because it felt original and relied heavily on a family we didn't know we needed. The sequel left a terrible taste in our mouths...

10. Now You See Me 2 is another sequel (I'm sensing a theme here) that tried to capture the wonder and wit of the first but it never felt like it was a worthy sequel and made me wish there was a magician that could make it disappear.

11. X-Men Apocalypse serves as a reminder that no matter how many strides a franchise makes to make up for a blotch on its record (X-Men: The Last Stand), people can still make mistakes. It was a just a hot mess of characters, weird story lines, bad production values, and sequelitis.

12. Office Christmas Party was supposed to be a raunchy R-rated Animal House for a modern time period, but it just ended up falling flat thanks to WAY too many clichés.

13. Fifty Shades of Black was not the best from Marlon Wayons and I wish I could say this was an original movie, at least but was basically a bad rehash of Fifty Shades Of Grey.

14. And then there's Gods of Egypt starring Jaime Lannister has an Egyptian god and Gerard Butler as another Middle-Eastern god because Caucasians were always living across the Nile.

COMMENT and tell us which movies sucked in 2016.
