My Least Favorite Movies of 2017

It’s the time of year again, isn’t it? Where everybody and their mother who writes about, criticizes, reviews, reports on, blogs about, BMWs about and generally just loves and is interested in movies comes up with their own list of movies that they either loved, hated or were indifferent to during the year so why should I be any exception? So here I am presented my list of My Least Favorite Movies of 2017. I’m presenting this list first because I want to end the year on a high note so my list of Favorite Movies will be along Thursday or Friday. So be on the lookout for it, okay?

Notice that I say that these are my Least Favorite Movies. Not the ones that I think were the worst. I ain’t gunna fall into that trap. I know better. Name any movie that you think is the worst and somebody will jump up with an argument for why it was the best. I ain’t gettin’ that deep with this. These are movies that just for one reason or another disappointed me and I considered to be a waste of my time and for me no greater crime exists than the wasting of my time.

Before I jump in I’d like to thank all of you who have been so good enough to not only read my reviews but leave a comment to let me know how much you’ve enjoyed reading them. It truly is heartwarming and gratifying when I get a comment or email from a fellow movie lover thanking me for steering them to a movie they might otherwise have missed and/or ignored. I don’t take your support for granted, I assure you.

Okay? Okay. So here’s My Least Favorite Twelve Movies of 2017. Stay tuned for my Favorite Twelve Movies of 2017 in a couple of days.

    1. CHiPS and BAYWATCH were simply awful. Made by people who have no respect for the source material and couldn’t be bothered to understand what made it so popular and since they couldn’t figure it out just decided to laugh at it and make comedies out of them.

      I’m a huge Luc Besson fan so VALERIAN was a big disappointment for me. I’ve seen it twice and I couldn’t explain the plot to you if you put a gun to my head and threatened to blow my brains out unless I did so. And the two leads made me feel as if I were watching a ridiculously over budget Disney Channel movie.

      XXX: THE RETURN OF XANDER CAGE was nothing more than “The Fast & The Furious” Lite. Seriously. With just a little bit of tweaking, this could have been a “Fast and Furious” movie and nobody would have been the wiser.

  1. What the hey-o is Dark Tower doing here? And if you say ‘It wasn’t like the book’, I reserve the right to hunt you down like an animal. Just sayin’
