    THE WORST OF 2016: 1) Ghostbusters (2016)

    GHOSTBUSTERS REVIEWED “Ghostbusters” came to represent everything about 2016. Forget about Donald Trump, Hillary or even the Grim Reaper trying to bowl a perfect game. When I initially reviewed the film in July, there was a bit of hesitation on my part. I had spent the weeks prior watching...
  • THE WORST OF 2016: 2) Ben-Hur (2016) 3

    THE WORST OF 2016: 2) Ben-Hur (2016)

    BEN-HUR REVIEWED Ben-Hur” is staged for a third time.  Things happen, audiences don’t show up and Morgan Freeman records his ADR from his country home. All of this transpired in August 2016 and now we’re in December trying to take a second stab at the film. What good can...
  • THE WORST OF 2016: 3) HILLARY'S AMERICA 5

    THE WORST OF 2016: 3) HILLARY’S AMERICA

    HILLARY’S AMERICA REVIEWED IN HINDSIGHT “Hillary’s America” is kinda funny now. Sure, it’s a terrible movie that serves as a vanity project for Dinesh D’Souza to explain away his prison time. Given the title of the movie, it can’t even contain its focus on Hillary “DINO” Clinton. Grabbing at...
  • THE WORST OF 2016: 4) Warcraft 7

    THE WORST OF 2016: 4) Warcraft

    WARCRAFT REVIEWED “Warcraft” reminds of when you’re a kid and you watch genre entertainment with your grandparents. It’s usually incredibly niche and they humor you. But, you see that look in their face, as they want to process what they’re experiencing. They know it’s a film and they can...
  • THE WORST OF 2016: 5) BIRTH OF A NATION 9

    THE WORST OF 2016: 5) BIRTH OF A NATION

    BIRTH OF A NATION CONTINUES TO DISAPPOINT ME Kyle Baker did the same take on Nat Turner, but far better. If this movie gets people to pick up the original Styron accounts and the later Baker adaptation, then more power to it. Still, it’s a weak directing effort that...
  • THE WORST OF 2016: 6) MAX STEEL 11

    THE WORST OF 2016: 6) MAX STEEL

    MAX STEEL REVIEWED “Max Steel” is a film that doesn’t work for me. While I was in college by the time that Mattel started heavily marketing this toy line turned animated series, apparently it has a sizeable online fanbase. The guy from Silicon Valley voices this sentient steel armor...
  • THE WORST OF 2016: 7) COLLATERAL BEAUTY 13

    THE WORST OF 2016: 7) COLLATERAL BEAUTY

    COLLATERAL BEAUTY REVIEWED “Collateral Beauty” is another one of WB’s giant miscalculations. The film wants you to accept a conceit where a man’s employees are celebrated for feasting on his grief. While losing a child is terrible, nobody gives Will Smith’s character some space. From the moment the film...
  • THE WORST OF 2016: 8) MIRACLES FROM HEAVEN 15

    THE WORST OF 2016: 8) MIRACLES FROM HEAVEN

    MIRACLES FROM HEAVEN REVIEWED “Miracles from Heaven” is further proof that Christian exploitation thrives off a child’s coerced experience. How often do we need to keep seeing these movies get released? How many bargain bins must these movies fill at the Best Buy? These are the questions I ask...
  • THE WORST OF 2016: 9) Mother's Day 17

    THE WORST OF 2016: 9) Mother’s Day

    MOTHER’S DAY REVIEWED “Mother’s Day” is a timewaster of a movie. Capping Marshall’s recent string of Holiday themed movies, there’s utterly no reason for it to exist. What difference exists in a story of three different circles of people coming together on a Holiday. Some would argue that it’s...
