Critics Pick the Worst Movies They’ve Ever Reviewed

Critics Pick the Worst Movies They’ve Ever Reviewed
Every week, IndieWire asks a select handful of film and TV critics two questions and publishes the results on Monday.

This week’s question: “The Book of Henry” has been assailed by critics. But let’s look beyond this particular reviled new release. What’s the worst movie you’ve ever reviewed?

Alissa Wilkinson (@alissamarie), Vox

It’s unfortunately not even a contest: “God’s Not Dead 2,” which I reviewed for Flavorwire and then wrote about it further for Thrillist. (The first movie is actually far worse, but I didn’t review it.) They’re actually not the worst-made movies I’ve seen, but as a Christian and a film critic, I find them so actively offensive and cynical that it’s somehow even more depressing. I didn’t derive any joy from the process, but it felt important that I write about it.

Video Examines the Culture of Creating "Passable" Films

Nerdwriter's latest video seems to be his most ambitious and interesting yet. In this video, he explores the culture of "passable films" and why they are made, and while I think he makes some incredible points about what makes films mediocre that I considered before, I think he makes a misstep in his analysis. 

It would appear Nerdwriter writes this theory under the assumption that all films are written, directed, and created for the purpose of becoming iconic or legendary or at the very least leave a lasting impression on the culture of filmmaking when they are done. 

It's all about money. No one writes Paul Blart Mall Cop 2 and says, "I wonder how many Golden Globes this one will snag?!" in an unironic fashion. Of course, there are films that strive to be something greater, but the examples presented in this film are nothing more than money thrown at

Fantasy Becomes Reality In First Trailer For Netflix’s True Memoirs Of An International Assassin

You’ve heard of Paul Blart, haven’t you? Mall Cop extraordinaire? Across both the 2009 original and its bonkers sequel, Kevin James was thrust into an action-heavy role that we haven’t typically seen from the actor before. With True Memoirs of an International Assassin, James is about to take that to the next level.

That’s because Jeff Wadlow’s actioner will place James in the role of Sam Larson, a humble, mild-mannered author who is struggling to overcome writer’s block in his bid to publishing a debut novel. Imagine his surprise, then, when his nonfiction book becomes an overnight sensation. There’s just one small catch – Larson’s publisher consciously added the word ‘true’ to the masthead, fooling everyone into believing that James’ bumbling protagonist is actually a deadly killer-for-hire. Shenanigans ensue.

Though it’s likely to evoke comparisons to Adam Sandler’s crude Netflix offerings, True

Watch: First Teaser Trailer For 'The Do-Over,' Netflix's Next Adam Sandler Movie

“ ‘[Paul Blart]: Mall Cop’ is a very funny film, and someone should make it, but that’s not what we’re doing. We want to work with visionary filmmakers who are making interesting films that you’re still going to be talking about in three years,” Amazon Studios chief Roy Price recently told Variety about the difference in approach between themselves and Netflix. Indeed, with their competitors serving a massive worldwide market, their original programming has to include fare that's broad enough to attract new subscribers, which means doing things like signing up Adam Sandler for a four-picture deal. We saw the first result of that collaboration with "The Ridiculous 6," which Netflix claimed was their most watched film on its service in its first thirty days of release. And now, comes "The Do-Over." Read More: Netflix Will Spend $5 Billion On Content In 2016; 'The Ridiculous 6' The Most-Watched Film

Amazon, Retail Behemoth, Taking Smaller Steps Into Hollywood

As snow fell steadily, blanketing the mountainside town of Park City, the team from Amazon Studios huddled in a parking lot to discuss the movie that had just premiered at the Sundance Film Festival.

Moments before, the drama “Manchester by the Sea,” a finely calibrated portrait of grief and loss, had received a standing ovation, triggering predictions on social media that the picture would be a major Oscar contender. As the credits rolled, potential buyers rushed to the exits.

Amazon Studios chief Roy Price, who was stuck in the middle of a long row of moviegoers, had to vault over seats to get out of the packed theater.

“We were out afterward in the cold, shivering,” recalls Ted Hope, head of motion picture production at the company. “We were all agreeing on the same thing — that we saw something that doesn’t come around much.”

And the Razzies go to… Fifty Shades of Grey & Fantastic Four

We may all be gearing up to stay up late and watch The Oscars later on this evening, but last night saw another important awards ceremony take place. The 36th Golden Raspberry Awards took place as they do every year on the eve of the Academy Awards. This year’s big winner was Fifty Shades of Grey.

It shouldn’t be too surprising given that the book from which the film was spawned was also utterly awful. The film which starred Dakota Johnson and Jamie Dornan took home five of the big awards of the night, although it had to share the Worst Picture prize with the equally mediocre Fantastic Four.

A year on from his Oscar win for The Theory of Everything, Eddie Redmayne found himself the recipient of Worst Supporting Actor for his whispering and shouting performance in Jupiter Ascending, a film which dodged quite a few bullets

The Razzie Awards Are Go – Get The List Of Awful

The Razzie Awards have actually managed to stake their claim on a part of the film world now, with their yearly release not going unnoticed by anyone, and this despite the fact that you too can vote for them, as long as you buy in.

This year was bound to be dominated by the biggest winners, because no movie managed more universal hatred than Fifty Shades of Grey (and those who hated it weren’t always waiting for the release), unless it was Fantastic Four and it’s director outrage kurfuffle (he managed his own award as well).

Many of the other awards were largely foregone conclusions as well, mainly because Kevin James, Adam Sandler, and The Chipmunks made movies… or whatever.

Still, worst movies and performances make for tricky voting. It’s hard to pick among the nominees sometimes, which explains the dual win for overall worst picture, but

As is customary on the eve of the Oscars, The Golden Raspberry Award Foundation “celebrated” the very worst in cinematic achievement over the past twelve months with the 36th annual Golden Raspberry Awards.

Worst Picture was a tie between Fantastic Four and Fifty Shades of Grey, with both films sharing the majority of the remaining awards between them save for Worst Supporting Actor (Eddie Redmayne for Jupiter Ascending) and Worst Supporting Actress (Kaley Cuoco for Alvin and the Chipmunks: The Road Chip and The Wedding Ringer).

Meanwhile, Sylvester Stallone was the recipient of the Razzie Redeemer Award, given to a past Razzie winner who has since redeemed themselves.

Zoolander 2 review

Ben Stiller returns in Zoolander 2 - a sequel that takes its time finally getting going...

15 years have passed since Ben Stiller's clueless male model Derek Zoolander learned that there was more to life than being really, really, really ridiculously good-looking and was brilliantly, absurdly quotable doing it. In a world where Dumb & Dumber To came out in 2014, Zoolander 2 doesn't really feel like as much of a stretch, but that's one of the only reasons why it doesn't feel like a bit of a letdown either.

That's not to say there's not tonnes of potential here. The world of fame and fashion has only grown more absurd since 2001 and, in fact, the real world sometimes feels a little closer to the arch vapidity depicted in the original film. Social media has all but taken over the world, the Kardashians are somehow seen to be worth

The 36th Razzie Awards nominations have been announced

Yesterday, the 36th annual Razzie Awards nominations were announced by the The Golden Raspberry Award Foundation. It is tradition that the Razzies, which celebrate the worst movies of the year, are nominated just before the Oscar nominations, which celebrate the best films of the year. The Oscar nominations will be announced in Los Angeles later this afternoon, but the Razzie nominations have already been released.

We’re afraid its bad news for Johnny Depp, Channing Tatum, and Kayley Cuoco-Sweeting.

Here is the official press release.

All five films up for Worst Picture at this year’s 36th Annual Razzie® Awards are big budget/high profile productions that have no excuse for being among the year’s “berry” worst. And 2015’s acting contenders include popular stars like Johnny Depp, Channing Tatum, and Kayley Cuoco-Sweeting, previous Oscar® winners Gwyneth Paltrow, Eddie Redmayne and Julianne Moore, and such Razzie Repeat Offenders as Adam Sandler,

Fantastic Four Is Up for 5 Razzie Awards; See the Full List of Nominations!

The nominations for the 36th Annual Golden Raspberry Awards have been announced and it's packed full of all the worst things in movies that we saw in 2015. Josh Trank's utterly terrible film Fantastic Four was unsurprisingly nominated for 5 awards this year including Worst Picture and Worst Director. 

Other films included on the list include Fifty Shades of Grey, Paul Blart Mall Cop 2, Pixels, and Jupiter Ascending. Some of the worst actors on the list of nominations include Johnny Depp, Kevin James, Adam Sandler, Channing TatumKatherine HeiglMila Kunis and Dakota Johnson.

There are a lot of terrible movies up for awards this year, so it's hard to predict who will win. But I think Fantastic Four and Fifty Shades of Grey will walk away with the majority of them. Here's the nomination video, and below that you'll find the full list. Look them over and let us know what your predictions are.
