‘After Earth’ & ‘Scary Movie 5’ Among The ‘Worst Movies Of 2013’ | Film News


Our friends at Movie Markers have compiled a list of the worst fifteen movies to be released in 2013 and if you are a movie buff like them, some of these names will come as no surprise to you. I, on the other hand, didn’t even know that some of these films were even made. Without further ado, here are the Worst 15 Movies of 2013


The Purge
This would-be horror-thriller movie which stars Ethan Hawke and Game Of Thrones actress Lena Headey has a very weak storyline which prompts you to ask yourself, “is that all?”, once the closing credits starts rolling.


Identity Thief
Despite the efforts of Jason Bateman and Melissa McCarthy to make this one a funny and interesting movie, Identity Thief ends up being a waste of time and a terrible selection if you’re looking for a movie with scenes that will make you laugh.


I never thought I would say this, but RED 2 was awful. The first one was impressive which is why the idea of a sequel was welcoming. However they managed to mess up the script while trying to top the first movie and at the end of the day, even the experienced actors (returning and new) couldn’t make this one worth watching a second time.


The Family
The Family is one of those movies that you could keep under the section “Time for bed” because this would-be action/comedy mafia themed film won’t disappoint in making you fall asleep.


Bullet To The Head
Sylvester Stallone loves starring in action movies and most of the time those movies come out alright. However this one doesn’t hit that mark.


G.I. Joe: Retaliation
Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson has been describe by some as the man to call when you need to make people love your movies and give it the necessary boost. Five clones of Johnson couldn’t have saved this movie which kept moving from one silly scene to another.


The Lone Ranger
The Lone Ranger had a good storyline, however everything they had to offer in this movie could have been done in fifty minutes. Rather they decided to bore viewers with unnecessary scenes and dialogue and in the process, increased the running time of the movie to over 140 minutes, which only made you tired and annoyed by the time the movie came to an end.


A Haunted House
Marlon Wayans is a good chap and could be amusing once in a while. However his spoof of movies like Paranormal Activity – A Haunted Mansion will irritate and annoy you rather than make you smile or succeed at making you laugh.


Runner Runner
A dull slow movie starring Ben Affleck and Justin Timberlake which is predictable from the minute you read the synopsis. The acting doesn’t help either as most times it looks like the actors would rather be laughing than for them to be delivering their own lines.


Jack the Giant Slayer
Good actors, good director but a bad script which is what killed this movie, making it silly and forgettable.


Scary Movie 5
These guys need that fictional “Chill Pill” and should stop with the Scary Movie franchise already. Now it just looks like they’re trying to top the immediate past ones in terms of breaking new levels of being terrible.


The Host
With the success of the Twilight franchise which was adapted from Stephenie Meyer’s novels, The Host (also written by her) was eyed by certain people as that next big thing. Unfortunately for them, the reverse was the case as The Host is a laughable attempt at creating another hit.


Atlantic Rim
Supposed to be some sort of spoof of Pacific Rim, this movie from Jared Cohn should be wiped from everywhere it exists to avoid torturing more people.


This movie adaptation starring Jeff Bridges and Ryan Reynolds has just one word to describe it – TERRIBLE!!!


After Earth
Just when I was beginning to think M. Night Shyamalan could direct a new hit movie, After Earth comes out. The Sci-Fi movie is merely an advert, with which Will Smith tries to sell his son Jaden Smith to the world as a real star. Unfortunately for the trio (Shyamalan and the Smiths), this one has too many things wrong with it and ends up being unarguably, the worst movie of the year for many movie lovers.
