Yesterday I shared my five favourite movies of last year and today it's the turn of the films that failed to entertain on so many levels. I'm sure there were far worse travesties gracing the big screen in 2013, but these were the films I watched at the cinema and was utterly disappointed by. So, in no particular order, here they are.
All I can say is poor Ryan Reynolds. He really needs to get a new agent after the movies he's chosen lately. I thought Green Lantern was bad, but this film was atrocious.
A humdrum plot, an overuse of CGI giants and a hammy Ewan McGregor (who was so amazing in The Impossible) were just some of the problems with this fantasy film.
I was expecting so much more to Neill Blomkamp's next movie after the wonderful District 9, but sadly the whole social commentary angel of the rich living on a luxurious orbiting space station and the poor barely living on a ravaged Earth, quickly descended into just another mindless action movie.
Matt Damon was horribly miscast, as he's far too pretty to be a barrio factory worker and Jodie Foster seemed to have no real motivation, aside from being evil, and nothing of note to contribute to the overall plot.
Sharlto Copley, who a revelation as 'Wikus' in District 9, was total caricature of a mad killer agent and the whole thing simply descended into two men in eco-skeletons punching each other, as if it was a terminator movie.
Killing off Channing Tatum's 'Duke' character wasn't the smartest move after his star has been rising of late, and not even the addition of Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson and Bruce Willis could rescue this travesty which was simply about bigger guns and more ninjas, but not in a good way.
The trailer for the movie looked amazing, full of dazzling spectacle, wonderful costumes and cool music, but the reality was a bit of a mess.
I'm not a fan of Leonardo DiCaprio at the best of times, but in this I totally didn't believe there was any chemistry between him and Carey Mulligan. She's one of my favourite actresses, but she just resembled a simpering wishy-washy stereotype.
The costume design did capture the Roaring Twenties spirit though, so be sure to check out these original costumes from The Great Gatsby in more detail at my Hollywood Movie Costumes and Props blog.
Be sure to also check out the worst movies from 2012 and if you want to see what I did like last year, take a look at my five favourite 2013 movies.
Let's hope 2014 doesn't disappoint in such a big way, but I'm sure there'll be more than a few stinkers...
