These Will Be The Worst Movies Of 2018

Posted by


2018 is shaping up to be an intense year at
the cineplex, with numerous superhero movies, Star Wars, and Harry Potter spin offs all
on the horizon. But for every film worth getting excited about,
there’s another that we’re absolutely dreading. From sequels and reboots that nobody asked
for to Biblical B-movies and poorly-timed horrors, we’re betting that the following
films will be the worst of the worst in 2018. Woody Woodpecker If you’re a fan of the classic Woody Woodpecker
cartoons, then you’ll definitely want to give the upcoming live-action hybrid from Universal
a wide berth. “Guess who?” This family-friendly adaptation of the screwball
‘toon pits a CGI Woody Woodpecker against a big-city lawyer who intends to tear down
his woodland home to create space for a new development. Woody decides to takes matters into his own
hands and violently defends his home against the construction crew, taking snaps on his
smartphone as he does. The trailer truly is the stuff of nightmares. The whole thing is clearly meant to be cheap
and cheery, but in the end it just comes off as cheap, with the character so poorly rendered
in CG that his presence is completely jarring. Bizarrely, the film is already a hit in Brazil,
where an early release inexplicably grossed more than $6.5 million. Go figure. “Here’s Woody” Samson The faith-based production company behind
the God’s Not Dead trilogy are back with an all-new biblical blockbuster this year, bringing
the tale of Samson to the big screen. Pure Flix has been making inroads in the Christian
market over the past few years, thanks largely to the success of their family-friendly home
streaming service, which offers gems like the Jeff-Foxworthy hosted The American Bible
Challenge. Chief executive Greg Gudorf told the New York
Times: “We’ve been blessed with really strong growth. Our God-given dream was to provide content
on a consistent basis to be an alternative to what Hollywood was putting out.” While the God’s Not Dead films didn’t require
much in the way of visual effects, Samson relies on them heavily, and the lack of funding
is highlighted by the substandard CGI. According to the Bible story, the Hebrew strongman
fought his way through 1,000 Philistines with an animal bone and beat up a lion with his
bare hands, all of which is included in the trailer. Sadly, the effects on show in these pivotal
moments seem pretty dated—the whole thing looks like it was put together using deleted
scenes from The Mummy Returns. Add in some Billy Zane in a toy crown, and
you’ve got what looks to be a cinematic failure of Biblical proportions. “Never really understood what that meant until
right now.” Teen Titans Go! to the Movies Cartoon Network’s Teen Titans Go! has divided
DC fans since it started airing in 2013. Many viewers are of the opinion that the show
is an insult to both the original Teen Titans animated series and the much-loved comics
of the same name. Some have even petitioned the network to cancel
Teen Titans Go!, citing the bad messages it sends to young viewers and the fact that it
more or less ignores the source material. “We blew it. All that goofing around and being silly ruined
this mission.” Co-producer Michael Jelenic told Comics Alliance
that he’s well aware of the “internet hate,” even though it’s never slowed him down. He and his team have managed to thrash out
over 200 episodes in just four years, but the move to the big screen will likely prove
to be a step too far. Teen Titans Go! to the Movies will follow
Robin, Starfire, Cyborg, Raven and Beast Boy to Hollywood as they go in search of a director
to make them famous with their very own superhero movie—an idea that probably would have worked
better as a double episode rather than a full-length feature film. Unfortunately, kids will probably clamor to
pay for an hour and a half of the same stuff everybody hates about the show. “How you like that President Nixon? Hah! Back on the standard, baby!” Slender Man In 2009, a Something Awful user posted a made-up
horror story and some doctored photos to the website’s forum, unaware of the chain of events
he’d set in motion. Before long, the faceless man he’d created,
with the ability to turn children against one another, had become a genuinely popular
meme and, tragically, would go on to inspire a real-life crime. Unsurprisingly, people have reacted angrily
to the news of a Slender Man movie. Even if it wasn’t a totally insensitive move
by the studio, Sony still wouldn’t be coming out of this well, because the trailer makes
the movie look downright awful. From creaking doors and jerking heads to creepy
forests and screaming schoolgirls, they break out every worn-out trope a horror fan could
think of, and then some. If you want to be scared this year, you’re
better off looking just about anywhere else. Alita: Battle Angel Robert Rodriguez changed the way indie filmmakers
thought about GCI when he created the stunning visuals in 2005’s Sin City from his home studio,
faithfully adapting Frank Miller’s beloved graphic novels. The director has taken a similar approach
to the upcoming Alita: Battle Angel, his live-action take on the manga Battle Angel Alita. The cyborg heroine is being played via motion-capture
by Rosa Salazar, whose eyes have been enlarged to look as though they’re straight out of
the pages of the comic. Talking about the bizarre concept, Robert
Rodriguez said: “The early artwork I saw that [James Cameron]
had, before it was even technically possible, had that in her. It was so striking and so arresting, I thought,
‘My god, we have to do that. We have to be the first to bring a true manga
and anime character to life.'” “The eyes are the window to the soul. She’s got some big windows to see, you know,
of the soul that goes on within that character, cause the character has such great heart and
great soul.” While the filmmakers’ intentions might have
been good, fans of the source material haven’t been as positive about the design decisions. Considering the sordid history of live-action
manga adaptations, we’re not holding onto a lot of hope for this one. Peter Rabbit While it’s now considered a classic of children’s
literature, British author Beatrix Potter actually had trouble getting The Tale of Peter
Rabbit published when she wrote and illustrated it in the late 1800s. In 1901, she decided to self-publish 250 copies
of the book with her own money. It went on to become a hit via word of mouth,
prompting one of the publishing houses who’d previously turned her down to come crawling
back. In the years that followed, Potter turned
down plenty of offers to turn Peter Rabbit into a feature film, even rejecting offers
for an adaptation by Walt Disney himself. We’ll never know what Disney’s Peter Rabbit
might have looked like, but it’s probably safe to say that Potter would have hated the
brash party animal that Sony has turned him into. Potter’s relative, Nadine Hanwell, told The
Scottish Mail on Sunday: “Beatrix Potter would be turning in her grave. I hope parents don’t take their children to
see the film. She would absolutely loathe this.” Reviews don’t get much worse than that, but
it looks like there’s a good reason for the hate. Peter was always mischievous in the books,
but in this interpretation, he’s less cuddly critter and more arrogant frat boy. “You must be Peter Rabbit. Yeah that’s right.” Judging by the early reaction to the trailer,
this one is likely to be another major miss for Sony. Hotel Transylvania 3: Summer Vacation Like the majority of Adam Sandler movies,
2012’s Hotel Transylvania went down pretty badly with the critics, only managing to score
44 percent on Rotten Tomatoes. Predictably, reviews for the 2014 sequel didn’t
fare much better. After that flop, most people probably expected
the franchise to crawl back into its coffin. “Why don’t you just put a stake through my
heart.” So why are we staring down the barrel of a
third Hotel Transylvania movie? Basically, because they make a ton of money. The first two films were made for around $85
million each, yet they’ve pulled in staggering amounts at the worldwide box office—$358
million and $473 million, respectively. A series of leaked emails in 2014 confirmed
that Sandler and the studio had fallen out over Hotel Transylvania 2, with the star apparently
wrestling control of the animated project away from director Genndy Tartakovsky. Despite that giant mess, Sandler, Tartakovsky
and Sony all came back together to make a third Hotel Transylvania, putting financial
gain over professional pride. We can probably expect Summer Vacation to
be the worst Hotel Transylvania yet. Fifty Shades Freed Mocking the terrible dialogue littered throughout
the Fifty Shades of Grey novels was the internet’s favorite game for a while, and it’s hard to
argue against the haters when you actually sit down to read the books. “He grabbed me suddenly and yanks me up against
him, one him at my back holding me to him, and another hand… oh my god, I’m not going
to say that.” To be fair to author E.L. James, she spotted a gap in the literary market
and plugged it, so to speak, cleverly tweaking what began as a bunch of Twilight fan fiction
for the mom audience. A big-screen adaptation seemed inevitable
after the success of the raunchy trilogy, and there were more than a few fans who hoped
that the books’ kinks would be ironed out in the process. It hasn’t happened. “Seriously?” “Yes.” Reviews for the first movie bashed almost
everything about it, and the second picture went down just as poorly. Judging by the trailer for the final installment,
Fifty Shades Freed, the filmmakers haven’t changed their approach one bit. Yeah, it’ll probably rake in just as much
money as the first two installments in the trilogy, but that doesn’t mean it’ll be a
pleasure to watch. Viy 2: Journey to China This adventure fantasy sequel pits action
stars Jackie Chan and Arnold Schwarzenegger against one another. In Russian. And Arnie is Captain Hook. Confused? Well, to properly explain this wacky looking
Russo-Chinese production, we need to first mention that the previous movie, Viy: Forbidden
Empire, was the highest-grossing Russian film of 2014. The swashbuckling fantasy epic is based on
a classic horror novella first published in 1853, and the movie was even on track for
a U.S. release until a lawsuit between co-producers derailed it. That may have been for the better, considering
that the few American critics that actually got to see it weren’t exactly blown away. But considering how much money the first film
made, a sequel was inevitable. Only instead of concentrating on the positive
parts of the original, they seem to have embraced the crazy. Chan and Schwarzenegger take top billing over
the original film’s star, Jason Flemyng. They both appear more than him in both trailers,
even though they’re only supporting characters in the continuation of his tale. The first film was guilty of favoring style
over substance, and that doesn’t seem to have changed for the sequel. Thanks for watching! Click the Looper icon to subscribe to our

  1. Alita: Battle Angel is look good we dont ahve problem to her eyes its natural cus shes a android duh? re edit and upload this fail video some of movies are great

  2. I would say "Viy 1" was a solid dark fairy tale. I liked it but I didn't notice that it was supposed to be a horror film.

  3. Here we go hate on films about religion …if people want to watch films about their beliefs let them if you aren't interested don't watch…simple as that not everyone is as cynical as you

  4. battle angel rely looks good we need more anime adaptation that actually highlight the story arcs and visuals , ive always thought that

  5. Black Lagoon would be a great anime adapt if it were done right like Alita maybe it needs someone like Robert Rodriguez to envision it properly

  6. Peter Rabbit was awesome! I went to the movies because of my kid and 3 min in and i was loving it! The effects are awesome and the story is really credible! Hotel transylvania 3 was also good.. i have high hopes for teen titans, my five year old might not get the jokes but i kinda do. This list was very disappointing..and by the looks of it you clearly don't have idea what the target audiences are.

  7. hotel transylvania audience rating (the important rating) was 72. only the dumb criticks who lets face it would not know a good movie if they saw one and are so out of touch with cinema goers

  8. TBF Hotel Transylvania is for kids. I don't see nothing wrong with it, since it caters to different audience. Just because your adult eyes see it as awful, doesnt mean the kids wont enjoy it.

  9. No one cares what movie critics think. Ive seen them say a lot of shows suck that were actually quite enjoyable and made a lot of money

  10. Do you have an issue with independently made movies? I'm sure Samson came out quite well considering independent studios do not have a fraction of the money that Holly-weird has. And I'd still rather go see an independent or Christian film as opposed to all the miserable drek that continues to ooze out of Hollywood like a pus-filled plague. I'm anxiously awaiting the sequel The Resurrection next year.

  11. We have to make alita's eyes bigger! we need to make this movie into incel masturbatory source material !
    Its the only way it will sell !!!

  12. Hotel Transylvania was the only movie so far that shouldn't have been anywhere near this list all the movies are amazing and funny as Hell.

  13. Hotel Transylvania 3 was not flop and surely some other films also turned out to be great but this idiots have taken money from people who wants to create a negative publicity about the movies so they've made this video this could be the worst video of looper

  14. As of November 6, 2018 I'mma tell you which ones are actually good. Teen Titans Go! To The Movies was HILARIOUS. So many references. And an actual good story. Although, why was Deathstroke's name never used? All the other ones I never saw bc ew.

  15. MOnths later…Are there still people shocked that the fifty shades series was garbage? Seriously? It is so obviously a total piece of crap franchise.

  16. You are WRONG . Peter Rabbit, Alita and Transylvania…Dughhhhh….have to watched it or NOT ?.

    Watch it before review.

  17. The reason why the Woody Woodpecker movie is such a big hit in Brazil is because retardation is at an all time high in that country.

  18. I'd watch woody woodpecker…Rotten tomatoes is run by a bunch of old bitter fks…ive been pleasantly supriced by some movies they gave a bad score to

  19. Teen Titans Go To The Movies is actually funny and truly is underrated…. Should definitely get more recognition. Watched it with a few friends and it was actually jokes and had some good comic book material in it. Give it a try!

  20. Lol looper would have shit their pants when they found out teen titans go to the movies was actually decent lol

  21. They haven't made a great movie since 1985 all new movies suck we need real actors actually acting and not all the CGI bullshit

  22. the death note and dragon ball and also king of fighters worst adaption ever….even with big star like maggie q and chow yun fatt didnt help…some things should just be left as comic books

  23. horrible video. Viy deserved a US release. I don't care what critics think about a film. they don't dictate what the rest of us enjoy. Stop using them as evidence of a film being bad.

  24. Because I’m from the future:
    Alita: came out in 2019 and is fine.
    Teen Titans: it was pretty decent.
    Hotel 3: Also decent.

  25. Pretty sure the guy who directed Woody Woodpecker and directed movies with Larry the Cable Guy, and a movie about talking dogs. You gotta expect crap.

  26. The stories in the movies are uslly the same and if they hv no ideas they will pick old movies and remake them .Sometimes ok but we need something new and fresh.

  27. 2019 update:
    1:Alita and Viy 2 both released in 2019
    2: all these movies made more than 2x there budgets
    3. They said hotel Transylvania 3 would do the worse of the trilogy, but it did the best by far at 528 million on a 80 million budget (which is the lowest budget of the 3)
