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.

“Star Trek Into Darkness” Viral Campaign Wants Your Original Artwork!

1701artBriefly: We’ve been following the lackluster Star Trek Into Darkness Are You The 1701 campaign quite closely since it went live last week. The first “mission” was to submit pictures to Instagram and videos to Vine that were inspired by Star Trek or “the future.” 1701 fans were rewarded with a special advance screening of the domestic trailer rendered in anaglyph 3D. Now fans are asked to submit original 1701 artwork to Instagram. Just use hashtag #1701 when you post your art. If anything comes of this, we’ll let you know. Be sure to check out the rest of our Into Darkness coverage here!
