As is often seems, disaster and end-of-the-world films are quite popular among filmmakers. After all, it gives them a chance to destruct, blow stuff up and all while getting really loud. Throw in a few choice actors, and they’ve suddenly got themselves an almost sure hit on their hands. Or so they think. For every film that scores with audiences, such as Independence Day and the recent hyped up film, San Andreas (staring The Rock Dwayne Johnson), there comes a howler that makes people wonder what the filmmakers spent their huge multi-million dollar budget on and why. While the true awfulness of the following list of films can be argued left, right and center, there is no denying that all of them contain at least one aspect that makes them truly cringe worthy. Here are 10 of the worst 'end of world' movies ever made.
7 The Happening
6 The Matrix Revolutions
5 The Reaping
4 The Day the Earth Stood Still
3 The Man Who Saw Tomorrow
2 A Sound of Thunder
1 Disaster Movie
From the same wonder boys that brought you such classics as Date Movie and Meet the Spartans, comes Disaster Movie; a spoof of disaster movies that cares more about naming celebrities than actually spoofing disaster films. This, like all other Jason Friedberg-Aaron Seltzer classics, simply takes other movie scenes trailers and recreates them into one long, semi-laugh free movie. What on Earth does Kung-Fu Panda, Enchanted or even Wanted shave to do with the end of the world? Absolutely nothing, which Friedberg and Seltzer probably know, yet ignore for the chance to say “Hannah Montana is really Miley Cyrus.” That’s some lazy stuff right there. But even we have to admit that Crista Flannigan’s Juno impression is pretty spot on.
