Whereas Damien Chazelle’s “La La Land” reminds me why the cinema exists, the various mainstream films are determined to please everyone and anyone. Too many films demonstrated cinema is dead during the 2016. I provided several films with the grades – C to F – deficiently meeting my lofty standards.
I would like to emphasize the positives, regarding film. Yes, the independent fare saved the day in the midst of the mainstream movies providing underwhelming results. Without further ado, the ten worst films of the year.
Number One: “The Wild Life” (also known as “Robinson Crusoe”)
Number Two: “Warcraft”
Number Three: “Now You See Me 2”
Number Four: “Hardcore Henry”
Number Five: “Suicide Squad”
Number Six: “Ben-Hur” (2016)
Number Seven: “X-Men: Apocalypse”
Number Eight: “Assassin’s Creed”
Number Nine: “Ratchet & Clank”
Number Ten: “Ice Age: Collision Course”
