Phil’s 5 Worst Films of 2015

So 2015 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 2015.  And there were quite a few to choose from..

Stinker of The Year: Fifty Shades Of Grey
In Brief:Oh god why, why did I watch this?  I guess it was partly to see what all the fuss was about.  And apparently the fuss was about awkward sex scenes, bad acting and a script that could have been written by a middle aged woman writing bad Twilight fan fiction.  Oh.  It was.



2. He Who Dares 2: Downing Street Down
In Brief: The funniest film of 2015 by a long way.  Filmmaking as pure incompetence.

3. Magic Mike XXL
In Brief: Not funny, not charming, Not anything.  Just piss poor.

4. Blackhat
In Brief: From the guy who made Heat comes possible one of the biggest let downs of 2015.  Just one of the most boring films I’ve seen this year.

5. Assassin
In Brief:  Danny Dyer on Brighton seafront riding a push bike rates as possible this years best 30 seconds of cinema.  So bad i cried laughing.  As for the rest of the film: utter shite.

Dis-Honourable Mentions:
Maggie, Insurgent, Spy, Minions, Taken 3,  Everly, American Sniper, Spectre, Big Eyes, Jupiter Ascending
