Each week Phil, from Phil’s Quick Capsule Review, takes a look at a different movie or TV related Top Five. This time out: 2018 Films I’d Rather Weren’t being made
Close but no cigar: Halloween, X-Men: New Mutants, Robin Hood: Origins, Oceans 8, Bad Boys for Life
5 – Pacific Rim: Uprising
The original Pacific Rim did nothing for me and the recently released trailer for this sequel excites me even less, especially as DelToro is not directing.
4 – Scarface
With it’s director now departed, this Urban Scarface remake lost it’s one appealing element. Pachino’s Scarface (itself a remake) is so seminal that this second remake just feels little more than a very belated cash grab.
3 – Tyler Perry’s A Madea Family Funeral
Madea is a franchise that offers nothing. Nothing. The fact that the films still are being made helps me further question the brain power of those who continue to feed the machine
2 – Bumblebee
The original Transformers was ace. Since then the films have quickly become everything that is bad about modern filmmaking. The last thing the word needs is a spin off.
1 – Fifty Shades Freed
Fifty Shades Darker was the worst film of 2017 so far. Fifty Shades of Grey was the worst film of last year. Fifty Shades Freed could break a Quick Review record of delivering three consecutive years of worst films. Even Transformers hasn’t managed that.
