disappointingfilmsof2012

Creating a list of worst 10 films sounds easier than creating a 10 most disappointing films of the year. For one thing a person can immediately refer to the most rotten movies on Rotten Tomatoes. Besides it be way too easy to add a film like The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 2, Resident Evil 5, Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter, Total Recall, Battleship and Playing for Keeps type of films on the list, so why even bother creating a list like that. When I say disappointing, I mean it just did not live up to the hype, predecessors, and/or genre. We get so many screenings, and pay for so many tickets, but all in all, it’s just impossible to see every single movie in a year. But not every movie we see will be a guaranteed hit. So these are my top ten films that were the most disappointing. Hit the jump to see them all. [Read more...]
