Phil’s 5 Worst Films of 2017

So 2017 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 films of 2017.  And, as always, there were quite a few to choose from..

 

Stinker of The Year: Fifty Shades Darker (2017)
In Brief: It’s so bad it’s not even fun. Yup Fifty Shades Darker takes off where 50 Shades Of Grey finished – mostly bad script writing, score core S&M and some Movie Channel poor acting. It’s totally amateur and I’m beyond gobsmacked that they made this film, let alone the upcoming sequel. Lets be honest if a film can beat a Michael Bay Transformers film to Worst film  it’s pretty bad.

 

 

 

2. Transformers The Last Knight
In Brief: Another year this would have romped it home, but few things can beat Fifty Shades in a shit film contest.  That said Hopkins slumming it, more Marky Mark and a pointless nonsensical story get’s pretty close.

 

3. Assassins Creed
In Brief: Video name adaptations don’t come more asinine than this. It’s dull, it’s silly, it makes no sense and you stop caring after a few seconds.

 

4. Underworld Blood War
In Brief:  The Underworld films have always been little more than OKAY but Blood War was a case of flogging a very dead horse.

 

5. The Mummy (2017)
In Brief:  CGI strewn humourless Pants… The Mummy is a hot mess of a film that even the usually robust star power or Cruise couldn’t save. It’s just terrible.

 

6. The Circle – Boring Netflix drivel

7. Power Rangers – Pointless

8. A Cure For Wellness – Pretentious, long and dull

9. Leatherface – A film you didn’t need or want

10. Hacksaw Ridge – Nice to see Mel back but this was just jingoistic war porn.

Dis-Honourable Mentions: King Arthur Legend Of The Sword , Live By Night,  Sing! , The Boss Baby, The Dark Tower , The Limehouse Golem,  Justice League 

 

The 2017 Films I just couldn’t Finish: Sleepless, The Ghoul, The Lost City of Z
