Worst Films of 2018

Here it is. The films of 2018 that made us cringe the most. The ones that made us roll our eyes and sigh. Check out our top picks for the most disappointing films of last year.

7. The Predator

“Backstories are hinted at but never explored. Plot points are established early and then forgotten. The larger hybrid Predator is completely underwhelming. And then, before you can blink, the climactic fight is over and something even more underwhelming happens: a sequel is teased” – Zachary Cruz-Tan

Predator

6. Fifty Shades Freed

“Like an impotent lover that never really attracted you in the first place, the Fifty Shades trilogy limps to an unsatisfying climax that leaves you feeling dirty and ashamed,” – Corey Hogan

February 2018 - Fifty Shades Freed

5. Venom

“Venom just washes over you, it’s neither entertaining nor horrifying enough to hold your attention. I found myself strangely bored by the mish-mash of ugly VFX, dark cinematography and uninspired design oozing from every frame,” – Rhys Pascoe

Venom October 2018

4. Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes Of Grindelwald

“Rowling’s story comes across as convoluted fan fiction. It tends to favour side-characters delivering monologues and backstories that no one will be able to follow without a PhD in Pottermore,” – Corey Hogan

Fantastic Beasts Crimes of Grindelwald November 2018

3. Winchester

“The scares are both well-orchestrated and heart-pounding, but Winchester doesn’t bring anything original to the horror genre and at times it becomes predictable,” – Elle Cahill

February 2018 - Winchester

2. Submergence

“Submergence is a dull, tiresome plod through a series of events that are no doubt meant to be shocking and romantic, but simply end up resembling a dying fish flopping about on the shore. It is a joyless, merciless experience,” – Zachary Cruz-Tan

1. Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom

“Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom follows a narrative that’s muddled with ridiculousness and built on poor foundations. It’s just as silly as The Fast and The Furious series, except here there are no excessive action sequences to offset the weak narrative and ensure the film is at least somewhat enjoyable,” – Josip Knezevic
