P.S. Some spoilers will be found here.
Just so we're clear, none of these are runner-up films, that is to say, none of these are "worst movies numbers 11-15", some may come close however. For example, number 11 would probably be Jane Got a Gun, but I don't have much to say about that movie, beyond it being boring. These are all just movies I felt like highlighting what was wrong with them. In short, these stood out, but not enough to make my list, here we go.
KINDERGARTEN COP 2-This straight to video mess is just that, a mess, it's dumb, representative of the worst traits in film sequels, and just terribly unfunny. On the bright side, it didn't feel long.
SUICIDE SQUAD-I've stated before, Leto plays the Joker like a James Franco impersonator, who is trying to act like the Joker, while still being Franco, it's awful. I kept this one out of my top ten because it has some charm with a few of the leads, Voila Davis is kickass in this movie, Smith is good, Jai Courtney is amazing, but man does it still suck. Sorry DC, I'll praise you when you stop making disjointed crap.
HOLIDAYS-An anthology of holiday themed horror films? Awesome, sadly this is not, the stories lack connection to their holidays in most cases, while also just being boring. A few shorts do help make this a somewhat worthwhile sit though.
BARRY-I love Obama, he's been a great president and I'll miss him, but did his film have to be so, unoriginal? Barry, is by no means an awful film, in fact it's fairly decent, it's just uninteresting. I'm sure there's plenty accurate here, but the film tells Obama's story with the same approach given to white historical figures, not awful I stress, just nothing to make this feel unique, which is pretty bad for a unique man.
HUSH-Home invasion films are boring, they truly are, so what can help them feel unique? Gimmicks, unique heroes, all that stuff. So, why does Hush feel boring with it's deaf hero? Because aside from a few instances, this never takes advantage of the potential there. I enjoyed bits here, but when all was said and done I walked away not caring.
Now, on to the worst starting with...
10)MEET THE BLACKS
9)RATCHET AND CLANK

8)THE SECRET LIFE OF PETS
6)THE GOOD NEIGHBOR
5)NORM OF THE NORTH
There were some pretty awful animated films all year, this was the worst, by a wide margin. Norm of the North is representative of the worst that animation can offer, poor animation, poor acting, poorly thought-out jokes, including a lot of fart jokes, but if you need a definitive reason why this sucks, here it is, twerking polar bear. Global warming, do your job.
1)BATMAN V. SUPERMAN:DAWN OF EVERYTHING WRONG WITH GRITTY REBOOTS
As if you're surprised, the negativity around this one led me to make so many posts discussing what was wrong with it, I honestly can't think of much to say that I haven't. Sure, Affleck was good, but the depiction of Batman here is awful, Wonder Woman was cool, but pointless and everything else just sucked. You all know the Martha bit is stupid, yes I've heard the rebuttals, but I've got one too, you're wrong. Batman crying about the name Martha, a name that Superman randomly brings up out of convenience (realistically, wouldn't he have said save my mom? Or is Superman just disrespectful regarding his parents?) was awful writing. I knew this was going to be bad going in, somehow knowing everything that would hurt, didn't make the pain any easier to take, this was a slow, boring mess for 2 and a half hours that I will never reclaim. I plan to never watch this shit again and neither should anyone else, easily the worst movie all year, as well as the worst superhero movie ever, which is impressive considering that means this is worse than Steel, Green Lantern and even Fant4stic, just stop guys, please do.
Well, join me next week, when I talk about the best of 2016.
