I don’t get to see every movie that gets released theatrically. I don’t have much time to rent them all either. There aren’t many who can. Like many, I have to be selective when it comes to what I see in theaters, what I see On Demand and what I skip entirely.
This year, I’m proud of my selection process. I only saw two movies in theaters I didn’t like. Both of them are on this list. One could argue that I didn’t take too many risks on smaller movies and films that fit into the category of ‘different’. I would argue that I’m still willing to give many of the films I missed a chance…
I’m just saying I wish I didn’t see these 3 frustrating films. The Bottom 3.
3. THE CAMPAIGN
I saw The Campaign late in the year as a rental while on vacation. I should have rented something else but the idea of Zach Galifianakis teaming up with Will Ferrell was too good to pass up… Wait… Yes it was.
2. JOHN CARTER
I should have known better. The production was plagued with problems and the trailers did nothing to sell the film. It was one of the biggest blockbuster disasters of the year but they got my money.
1. DARK SHADOWS
I lost the popular vote that day. A couple friends of mine are huge Tim Burton fans so I figured I’d give it a shot. (I’m a so-so Tim Burton fan.) It looked exactly like a Tim Burton movie except it was a complete mess. I did NOT enjoy this movie and neither did my friends. By far the worst movie I saw in 2012.
Until next year!
