There were some pretty great movies in 2012. Who wasn’t excited about seeing The Dark Knight Rises, The Hobbit, The Avengers, and Skyfall!? I mean, most people dressed up as their favorite Avenger last year. I still don’t understand why people made fun of my costume. Black Widow is totally an Avenger!
But this post isn’t about the movies we all watched and still love to talk about. This is about the movies that we are ashamed of watching last year. These are the worst movies of 2012. And here are a few, in no particular order.
1. This Means War – Remember when this movie released on Valentine’s Day and it was like the only movie to see with your date? Me neither… (forever alone)… With such a likable cast, it looked funny and romantic, except that it wasn’t funny or romantic. It was given a 22% percent on Rotten Tomatoes. Also, the caption says Spy vs. Spy. I went the whole dang movie waiting for those two cartoons to show up. Total let down.
2. A Thousand Words – This was a movie? Eddie Murphy loses his voice for the whole movie, and they expected us to pay to see that. This movie got a 0% on Rotten Tomatoes, cost $40 million to make, and made $20 million in the box office. It probably would have done much better if all he could say was quotes from Shrek.
3. Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance – Worst movie since Ghost Rider! Need I say more? This movie got a 17% on Rotten Tomatoes. Mr. Grimm from Twisted Metal could have made a better movie.
4. Battleship – I was conflicted with this movie. It has Liam Neeson, but it has Rihanna. It’s named after a classic game, but no one played Battleship with me during the movie. It just seemed destined to fail but for some reason, they made the movie anyway. And why would anyone pay $10 to see Battleship when you can buy the game for $10. I guess we will see how Pacific Rim does this year. It seems like a similar storyline but is missing Liam Neeson.
5. One For The Money – Remember that movie where Gerard Butler became a bounty hunter and chased after Jennifer Aniston? This isn’t that movie. Someone felt like men were having all the fun so they made this movie so a female lead could capture the bad guys and our hearts. Unfortunately, it didn’t capture our attention or our wallets. Way to go feminists, you really scored on this movie. Rotten Tomatoes gave it a 2%. At least The Bounty Hunter made a 13%.
I don’t have anything to say in closing. So… This is awkward. How can I get you to stop reading… Um… Bye.
