I love movies, but when it comes to seeing them in theaters, I have to pick and choose sparingly due to finances. Very rarely does a year ever come where there is close to a movie coming out every month that I want to see. 2016 has been one of those years so far. There have just been so many interesting films dropping from superhero blockbusters to Disney movies to video game adaptations. The spectrum was wide, and it had me hooked.
However, as I went to go see each and every one of these movies, I found myself surprised. This is the year that has come out with the most movies I want to see, but it is also the year where I've been the most disappointed with the end result. I don't outright hate these movies, I just was left feeling a bit underwhelmed more than anything else. There was only one movie this year that I actually loved enough to see a second time and that was Captain America: Civil War (and no, it's not because I'm a Marvel fanboy; I just really enjoyed it from a cinematic perspective).
2016 is about half over now, but we've still got plenty of movies to go, so it's quite plausible that there could be more diamonds in the rough before we start singing "Happy New Year." But for now, here are ten of the biggest movie disappointments of this year so far.
Keep in mind that this is a combination of critical reception, as well as my personal thoughts.
10 Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice
9 The Finest Hours
8 Zoolander 2
7 Alice Through The Looking Glass
6 The Huntsman: Winter's War
5 Ratchet and Clank
4 The Divergent Series: Allegiant
3 X-Men: Apocalypse
1 Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows
After the disappointing 2014 reboot, it seemed like the creators were ready to fix all the problems they had. The turtles are the main characters, Bebop and Rocksteady are in it, Casey Jones is played by one of my favorite actors, etc. And from what I've heard, a lot of the problems have been fixed, except for the plot and pacing. It's much better than the first film, but it still has enough problems to keep it from fulfilling the hopes we all had for it.
