Top 10 Most Disappointing Movies Of 2013 (Michael’s List)

Most Disappointing Films of 2013

I abhor “worst of list.” It seems a bit arbitrary to make a list about the worst films of the year because of how easy it is to list. Lone Ranger, Movie 43, inAPPproriate Comedy, R.I.P.D., After Earth and The Big Wedding all easily qualify for the worst movies of the year. We all know they are the worst movies, so why even bother giving us the reasons.

A “most disappointing” list seems more appropriate. These 10 films had the potential to be a great and memorable film given the film’s star power, budget, marketing, anticipation, and other factors, but ultimately, they failed to deliver the goods. gooSo here are my top ten most disappointing films of 2013.

Propaganda Posters Emerge On “Transformers 4″ Set


Like its predecessor, Transformers 4 is once again tearing up the streets of the Windy City. Director Michael Bay and a new cast lead by Mark Wahlberg are currently shooting the next installment of the franchise in downtown Chicago, where there are plenty of folks with camera phones and good enough access to provide a direct account of the happenings. While little is known regarding the plot of the film, we have seen some images emerge from the set in recent weeks that tease new characters and vehicles. In addition, we now have some interesting inclusions to the set design that may offer a hint to not only the film’s story, but also the eventual marketing campaign. Hit the jump for more.

“Pacific Rim” Review: An Awe-Inspiring Achievement


I’m a huge fan of Pacific Rim‘s director Guillermo del Toro. I’ve loved every film he’s ever made, because he’s a passionate storyteller of the fantastical and every frame of his movies drip with enthusiasm for the subject matter. He’s extremely adept at integrating unreal fantasy elements (via practical effects or digital effects) into his films in a way that makes them believable and tactile to the audience. Pacific Rim is no exception. In fact, Pacific Rim should be the calling card for how to utilize special effects in order to make an amazing, original and exceptionally entertaining summer blockbuster. Check out my review of this new “popcorn movie” masterpiece after the break.
