OLC Staff Picks: Top 5 Worst Movies of 2015

2015 has come and gone. It was quite a mixed bag for cinema. Mostly leaning towards good but not without its dark side showing. Some truly awful movies were shown and now we are going to give you OutLoudCulture’s picks, as voted on by the crewmembers themselves! I must stress these movies were voted on by the crew here at OLC and their order was decided by the number of votes provided. If a movie you didn’t like is not here, than it did not acquire enough votes. Without further ado, let us show you OLC’s picks for the Top 5 Best Movies of 2015!

Number 5: Chappie

I think it’s safe to say Neill Blomkamp isn’t as renowned now as he was a few years ago. I didn’t like District 9 but it did show potential. I was among the minority that said it was too early to call Blomkamp “the savior of sci-fi”. Then came Elysium. While not good, it wasn’t as bad as the early reviews said it was. Sadly, Chappie has proven me and my fellows in the minority correct, that it was too early to judge Blomkamp and it makes me happy the Alien movie he was making was canned.

Number 4: 50 Shades of Grey

When your movie is based off a book that is originally Twilight bondage fan fiction repurposed into a story about psychological abuse from a young businessman towards a young college student, what chance did 50 Shades have? Apparently a big one as this movie became a box office success in the same month Kingsman: The Secret Service was out. Also this movie may actually be better than the book simply for cutting these lines: “His voice is warm and husky, like dark chocolate fudge caramel… or something”; “I feel the color in my cheeks rising again. I must be the color of the Communist Manifesto”; “His erection springs free. Holy cow!”; “Holy crap! He’s wearing a white shirt”. Yet it somehow kept this line: “Because I’m fifty shades of fucked up”. What the hell do any of these even mean?!

Number 3: Jupiter Ascending

When the posters alone are enough to tell you how awful a movie is, you know there’s probably no salvaging the final product. I refuse to call this movie an “original” film, as so much of it is ripped off from other movies. I understand it’s inevitable that movies will share similarities with others, but this one is literally a checklist. Robots from Pacific Rim and Power Rangers, Cinderella love story, destruction of major city that for some reason doesn’t bring the in the armed forces from any movie these days, Bond villain method of killing Bond from every Bond ever, they even literally have Soylent Green! They have a liquid made from humans that grants immortality! It’s Soylent Green! They even rip off the bureaucracy sequence from Brazil and got Terry Gilliam. Can we add The Wachowskis to the list including Michael Bay, M. Night Shyamalan, George Lucas, Uwe Boll, and Eli Roth of people we do not ever want to see make another movie?

Number 2: Fantastic Four 2015 (Fant4stic)

Did anyone seriously expect this movie to be good at all? I think we all knew deep down this movie would be awful, we just didn’t expect it to be as bad as it was. Nothing but bad news plagued this movie, from lack of marketing, the cast themselves downplaying expectations, rumors of the director’s behavior on set, of the studio jerking him around, and finally of what the movie turned out to be. now that we all have some idea of what happened, Josh Trank is now persona non grata in Hollywood and the movie is so bad, one of its stars, Kate Mara, has still not seen it. At least we might get a great documentary about the making of this movie. And it ripped off The Incredibles, which is probably the best Fantastic Four movie to date.

Number 1: Terminator: Genisys

How do you make a movie this bad? Only two good actors, the rest of the cast is either terrible or given terrible material, a convoluted mess of a plot, no sense of time travel, bad characters, so many unanswered questions, if not for Arnold Schwarzenegger and JK Simmons there would be no reason to even look at this mess. The level of stupid this movie thinks you are is mind-boggling. It’s rare for me to mention something positive about a movie this bad, probably why I forgot to say it in my full review, but here I leave you with the best part of the entire movie, said by JK Simmons: “Goddamn time travelling robots! Covering up their goddamn tracks! Knew it!”
