‘Bears’ and Seth MacFarlane top the list of Worst films of 2014

The are hits and then there are misses. Below are just a few thoughts on the 2014 film season, noting that some “bad” films I just steered clear. No, these are those moments that I just can’t get back in my life.

For the record, I didn’t hate the new TMNT film as much as everyone else and I certainly knew to stay clear of Johnny Depp’s Transcendence; therefore, they are not on the list.

I wanted this film to be good, I really did. Sadly, the rock creatures, stowaways on the ark and just the blatant disregard for the scripture and Noah’s legacy made this awful.

Aronofsky still defended his environmentalist theme and continued to insult Christians who don’t like his horrible film. My full review is here.

IntoThe Woods Meryl Streep as The WitchInto the Woods: I know I’m in the minority on this one. My issue was the story after “Act One” and know I can testify Grimm fairy tales and Disney don’t mix. More

Sadly, most criticisms of the film are calls for more debauchery, not less.

Lucy: One of the biggest disappointments of the year for me because the trailers previewed a great film. After forty minutes, everything good was over and the bad science made the film an embarrassment for a Sci-fi fan like myself. Full review

Scarlett Johansson was not the problem. It was the lions being intercut in between the best sequences of the film and Luc Besson thinking he had some thought provoking message…no, it was a mess.

Grimlock breathing fire Transformers age of extinctionTransformers: Age of Extinction: Probably the worst film of the year when you consider the budget and the blown opportunity. Michael Bay knows how to deliver explosions and some great, entertaining camera shots. A story…no.

How dinobots can be added to the Transformers franchise and for it to be this bad…fire everyone and start over. The film ends at least twice before the film ACTUALLY ends.

A_Million_Ways_to_Die_in_the_West_posterA Million Way to Die in the Old West: Seth MacFarlane just isn’t funny all of the time. The was ripe with all of the warning signs of being horrible, but fans clung to their love of Ted and were…well, disappointed.

Sheep jokes, bashing Christians and slave shooting gallery were the lowest of the low for me.

Bears: Nothing was as hard to sit through as Disney’s latest nature film.

This melodramatic humanizing of bears was just unbear-….no, I won’t say it…it was bad. John C. Reilly’s narration didn’t help the horrible “story” around the migrating bears, full of bad slapstick gags. My full “rant” is here.

It was hard to believe this torture only last 77 minutes.
