Top 10 Worst Movies of 2016 (Video)

01.02.2017

Well, 2016 has been a pretty depressing buttsuck on many accounts, and in between all the celebrity deaths and world tragedies, there were plenty of shitty movies to rub the salt in our wounds. But now comes the time when we finally fight back against these shitty movies, with Awfully Good Movies' countdown of the Top 10 Worst Movies of 2016! Like last year, we polled you guys on JoBlo.com as to what was the worst movie you saw in the past 12 months. But considering JURASSIC WORLD's entry onto last year's list at No. 3 made a lot of you guys unhappy, we're evening the odds a bit and averaging this year's votes against the IMDb ratings and Rotten Tomatoes percentages of each movie, so we can actually help rank the 10 movies you helped pick this year in terms of critical and audience opinions. Also, we heard there was a certain movie in this poll that has had a problem with Internet trolls trying to ensure the movie's failure with bad ratings even though they didn't see the film. (HINT: It rhymes with "Toast Dusters".)

So our final Top 10 list is a diverse cornucopia of cinematic shitpiles. This year, you'll not only see Harley Quinn, but an actress named after Harley Quinn! You get to see both LIAM Hemsworth busting aliens, and CHRIS Hemsworth busting ghosts! One of our entries from last year's worst list gets the parody treatment...and ends up being LESS funny! All of your burning questions will be answered: Which one is less convincing: Tyler Perry as a fat lady, or Gerard Butler as a conspicuosly white Egyptian? Who would win in a fight: Batman, Superman, or do you wish they'd stop the fight and beat down Jesse Eisenberg? Which sequel was less necessary: ZOOLANDER 2 or INDEPENDENCE DAY 2? And most importantly of all: What the fuck is a "Yoga Hoser" anyway? Well, your answers await you in the video below, my friends, and thank you once again for your votes!

Also, get caught up on our two previous "Worst of" videos from 2015 and 2014, ya filthy animals!

 

Extra Tidbit: I'd like to take this time to give honorable mentions to COLLATERAL BEAUTY, WHY HIM?, PASSENGERS and ASSASSIN'S CREED, which came out right after this poll got published and barely missed being considered for this list. And thanks again to the crew at DoubleToasted.com for having me on their podcast this past week during my Austin, TX visit to plug Awfully Good Movies and JoBlo.com! You can listen to it here, I appear around 2 hours and 15 minutes in: https://soundcloud.com/kcoolman/the-weekly-roast-and-toast-12-27-16

Definitely Suicide Squad. Just watched it on Bluray and it's even worse than I remember. Everything about it is bad, it's a complete mess of a movie. Joel Kinneman is awful, The writing is embarassing and quite frankly, targeted to teenagers and fuck it, Harley and the Joker sucked too. If we're going to be honest..

So Jurassic World wasn't a bad movie ...??? (Sure it wasn't...)

When movies like Blair Witch, 31, Dog Eat Dog, Bad Moms and Mike and Dave need Wedding Dates have higher critic scores over BvS and Suicide Squad...? C'mon man. Sure these movies didn't meet expectations and it's obvious the filmmakers are "misguided" on how these characters should be portrayed (to put it nicely), but they're not worse than 31 bad... Would any of you recommend Dog Eat Dog (Netflix and I love Dafoe) over SS...??? Just because the Joker has tattoos...??? (Believe me, the plot is

I hate the fact that the DCEU is not great, but when critics hold it to some pretentious "art" standard while they praise Deadpool... you have to call a spade a spade.

But then again, what do I know... I thought Ghostbusters was OK and The Lobster is last movie I would recommend to a friend.

Ghostbusters was fine

Give it a Fucking Rest..
It may not have been the greatest movie I've ever seen but it's not a bad film at all.
And I would say the exact same thing about the original. Good movie not great.

It wasn't that bad. People will continue to troll on it without even seeing it.

I can confirm that I watched it with an open mind and it did indeed suck.

Ghostbusters was really as bad as everyone expected after seeing the previews.
I was entertained by Suicide Squad. I loved seeing Mago Robie in skimpy clothing and her portrayal of her character. That alone was reason for this movie to exist and see. So I can't talk negatively about it. The movie did at least one thing that more critically acclaimed movies like Arrival and Moonlight did not, which was entertainin.

It seems like the bottom of this list are the actual worst movies of 2016 and the top of the list are more in the mediocre territory

It was f***ed up to say David Bowie and Garry Shandling would rather die than be in Zoolander 2. You're using their deaths as a joke. Have some respect.

I think that enough time has passed for a joke about their deaths to be acceptable. However, it didn't make much sense. If they were still alive, I doubt that they would've been asked to appear in the movie.

Well to me, joking about someone's death is never OK.

Bob you are right. Well unless the person is some pedo or scum. The person who made the video also made a douchey joke about Florence Henderson. No class

I still, for the life of me, cannot fathom the massive amount of hate that Ghostbusters still gets. I get that people are pissed for various reasons that it got made and I am no fan, but after having seen it myself, it's really not nearly as bad as people have made it out to be. Certainly not one of the years worst films. Spots on that list should be reserved for truly deplorable movies. The hate for Ghostbusters is still coming from places of judgement besides the actual quality of the movie.

absolutely not. The movie has horrid pacing, dreadful special effects, sexist characters (yes it works both ways), shitty bad guy/motive, forced cameos, terrible comedic timing/jokes, zero chemistry, and Kate Mckinnon (ace ventura meets science nerd).

Agree with everything Sergeant says.....and will add in the fact that it was a waste of a huge license. It could have been so much more with the right cast, script and director. I gave the movie a chance. I wanted to enjoy it as it was promising to revitalise a beloved franchise, and it could have done. They could have passed the torch to a new generation of anyone if done correctly but they blew it.

I would have preferred that the originals had passed down the torch or mentored or something else other than random cameos. Dan Akroyd has been trying to get GB3 for decades and his cameo is "I aint afraid of no ghost" and drives off. Ernie Hudson had a bigger role which was fine considering the new story but Bill Murrays, he didn't look like he wanted to be there. It looked more like a "f*** you!" to fans.
Next, the effects. When a puppet Slimmer looks better than a CGI Slimmer, you know

Next, the effects. When a puppet Slimmer looks better than a CGI Slimmer, you know things are going down hill. The effects were too bright, to overly done.
The girls. I honestly did not mind Mckinnon nor Jones but Wiig (whom I like) and McCarthy (Whom I am not a fan of) felt like they were battling for screen time instead of sharing it. I also disliked how beyond dumb Hemsworth was. It was too unbelievable. The idea that he can't answer a phone, or can't tell a phone in a fish tank...come on! He did have some funny moments but he could have had them and not be THAT incompetent.
Lastly, since anyone that dislikes this remake is an official sexist and racist apparently, maybe THAT should also change. Plenty of people have VALID reasons for disliking this movie, none to do with all women or racist reasons for Jones. (which I don't get why there would be to begin with)
My opinion is the lost opportunity to continue the 30 yr old story with a new cast, it's a shame they didn't go that route.
Do I think this was the worst movie this year? No, but it certainly, imo anyway, has no replay value to me.
