Phil’s 5 Worst Films of 2014

So 2014 is almost over and it’s that time a year again where everyone reflects back on their best and worst films of the year. So first up… the 5 WORST film of 2014.  And there were quite a few to choose from..

Stinker of The Year: Transformers 4: Age Of Extinction 
In Brief: Not only the worst film of the year, but the worst blockbuster ever.  Hell it may end up being the worst film ever. Disgusting, stupid and about as thrilling as watching Loose Women, Transfourhours is too long, too dumb and too poorly made to exist.  Yet it does. And was the highest grossing film worldwide of 2014. Michael Bay is the devil.

2. Sex Tape
In Brief: A comedy without laughs. Or charm. Or any reason to exist. At all. Just dire.

3. The Other Woman
In Brief: A second commercial & critical bomb for Diaz, if The Other Woman has been made about men they would have been strung up by the balls by now.  Unfunny tripe.

4. The Legend Of Hercules
In Brief: The funniest film of 2014 wasn’t actually a comedy but a Nu-Image made, boring ” action film” that was as action packed and exciting as a day at an old pensioners home.  Watch the other one instead.

5. He Who Dares
In Brief:  It kinda feels wrong to bash a British independent film.  But He Who Dares is just fucking incompetent.  Piss poor action, piss poor acting, piss poor production values. It’s just piss poor.

Dis-Honourable Mentions:
Tusk, Need For Speed, Revenge Of The Green Dragons , 300 Rise Of An Empire, Under The Skin,  Noah ,  Into The Storm,  The Dead 2, Willow Creek,  The Zero Theorem, American Hustle ,  Transcendence , The Devils Knot ,  The November Man,  No Good Deed
