By now, you’ve heard all the negative reviews Suicide Squad has gotten from critics, friends and social media commentators. Though the movie is still at the top of the box office, the excitement has transformed into a group of angry movie watchers yielding torches and screaming for change.
As an audience, it’s a constant battle deciding whether we listen to the negativity surrounding a movie we want to pay to see in theatres, or accept defeat and wait until it’s available for streaming on Netflix. Are these critics always right?
Suicide Squad currently sits at a very rotten 27 per cent on Rotten Tomatoes, but you’ll be surprised to learn that these horrible movies have been rated higher.
This movie is now a cult-classic, but it isn’t because of its amazing cinematography or outstanding storyline. It’s a pretty cliché movie about a bunch of teenagers working at a summer camp, but apparently critics like low-budget clichés. Unfortunately for Suicide Squad, a multi million-dollar budget can’t buy you cult classic status in this world.
This is known as the worst movie in the Fast & Furious franchise because it lacked all the things that made the series great: Paul Walker, Dwayne Johnson and Michelle Rodriguez. Not even Bow Wow could save this movie from drifting to its demise. Despite the disappointment, it sits a comfortable 10 per cent higher than Harley Quinn’s baseball bat.
You Don’t Mess with the Zohan can be considered one of Adam Sandler’s most desperate attempts at comedy. On top of making fun of a whole group of people, the movie was just not funny in the slightest bit. There’s a scene where Zohan does a push up with his tongue and in the clip above, he does “feet uppercuts.” Yeah…we don’t get it either.
Middle school you isn’t surprised about this. What child didn’t look up the Frankie Muniz or think he was a totally hunk? If you re-watch the movie today, you’ll notice Hilary Duff’s cringe-worthy acting and Muniz’s obvious stunt double. But hey, they can still brag that they rated better than Will Smith.
Donning a fake moustache and even faker Mexican accent, Jack Black proved cultural appropriation wasn’t a thing in the early 2000s. We don’t expect Black’s movies to be groundbreaking blockbusters, but this may be one of the hardest to get through. Hearing him sing, “Encarnación” may have been enough to give this film a 40 per cent—or maybe Blue Jays fans just needed an anthem for Edwin Encarnación.
In a film were everything seems to have a blue hue, this dramatic tale of interspecies love left fans scratching their heads and banning themselves from watching any future book-to-movie releases. It’s a wonder this series still got funded after it’s lacklustre first attempt of bringing it to life. Seriously, why is everything blue?
Seth Rogen and James Franco’s controversial movie almost scored double the percentage from critics than Suicide Squad—and that says a lot. Spending 90 minutes watching Franco and Rogen befriend Kim Jong-un doesn’t sound like a very tantalizing plot and half the critics agree. Despite that, getting Jong-un to cry while singing Katy Perry’s “Firework” seems to have touched the audience.
You know what’s more exciting than watching Cara Delevingne have magical abilities as the Enchantress? Apparently, watching Justin Bieber get scolded to clean him room. According to Rotten Tomatoes, you should never say never to watching this movie, but should probably pass on Suicide Squad.
The title summarizes the whole plot: A hobo goes around town shooting vigilantes with a shotgun. It’s as simple as that and only cost $3 million to make. If only Warner Bros. Pictures knew how much critics liked shotgun-wielding hobos, they may have been able to save about $172 million.
A tire rolls through town and uses its psychic powers to make human’s head explode—and landed a 67 per cent score on Rotten Tomatoes. It’s a killer tire. Tires aren’t scary, yet this one outshines the Joker by 40 per cent. Either their critics are the same people who gave Like Mike a 57 per cent rating or audiences can relate to this story of a murderous tire. Both options sound equally frightening.
