I'll come right out and say that I'm probably going to get hate for this one. In the current waVe of comic book movies, reboots, sequels, and epic originals, there is no shortage of movies to be excited for in the future. I could probably name ten off the top of my head. From Disney's upcoming Moana all the way to the bombastic Avengers: Infinity War. There's always some movie coming out that I want to see, and my wallet is starting to feel it.
However, with every exciting movie scheduled to hit the theaters, there are probably two or three terrible ones coming. Whether they're independent films no one has ever heard of or mainstream blockbusters that are doomed to fail, we have more uninteresting movies than we can count. Unfortunately, that trend is not going to see a decline anytime soon, with 2016 and 2017 alone full of movies that probably shouldn't even be made.
It's a very similar case to Alvin and the Chipmunks: The Road Chip. Next to nobody wanted to see it, and it came out the same day as Star Wars: The Force Awakens. Why even spend all of the money to make a movie if it's doomed to fail from the very beginning? Granted not all bad movies are doomed to fail (i.e. the Twilight franchise), but that doesn't mean that they should still be released. In fact, here are fifteen movies where the producers should just cancel altogether, because the world would probably be better off without them.
14 Andy Serkis's Jungle Book
12 The Secret Life Of Pets
11 Ice Age: Collision Course
10 Avatar 2
9 Transformers: The Last Knight
8 Fifty Shades Darker
7 Pitch Perfect 3
6 Fast 8
5 The Nut Job 2
4 The Divergent Series: Ascendant
3 Cars 3
2 Emoji Movie: Express Yourself
1 Resident Evil: The Final Chapter
It is quite a feat of its own that the Resident Evil franchise has gone on this long already. They have undergone a process I like to call the sequel rut, where the franchise gets progressively worse with each installment. One redeeming quality I will mention is that Wentworth Miller got to be in one of the movies which ended up being a highlight, but other than that, there isn't much to talk about here. I have yet to see a genuinely good videogame movie that I would like enough to buy on Blu-Ray and put in my library, and Resident Evil is no exception. I am excited for this movie solely because it's the last one and we never have to worry about it ever again. Perhaps this movie shouldn't be canceled because it will at least give some closure to the convoluted story, but then again, is there anybody that really cares about it that much at this point? They'd probably be better off just to simply end it where it stands and never speak of it again.
