Worst Movies of 2018 QuickViews

December 20, 2018 // in QuickView - Micro Reviews by David Deverett

While there were lots of great movies that came out in 2018, there also were ones that really sucked. Here is my top 10 list of the worst movies of the year


#10: The Miracle Season


Even though it had a beautiful true story starring Helen Hunt as a volleyball coach in it, what should’ve been included more was subplots involving the players and their own lives


#9: A Wrinkle in Time


While the cast and visuals were incredible, fans’ reactions were mixed thanks to the change of the main character’s ethnicity


#8: Midnight Sun


A teenage girl who has XP and has to stay out of the sun oh please. Nothing’s worse than cancer, although Bella Thorne and Patrick Schwarzenegger have great chemistry together and Rob Riggle is good at playing a dad


#7: The Commuter


Liam Neeson is great at what he does in action movies, but unfortunately he couldn’t save this one from being derailed


#6: The 15:17 to Paris


This movie had everything going for it: an incredible true story and great directing by Clint Eastwood. Only problem: crappy dialogue and the 3 heroes playing themselves


#5: Life of the Party


Even though there was an interesting premise and a likable cast in it, the laughs didn’t get me going. I prefer to listen to Life of the Party by Shawn Mendes instead


#4: I Feel Pretty


If only this movie were based on the classic song from West Side Story. Unfortunately it’s not and while the story is great for all women to see and learn from, Amy Schumer didn’t do it for me


#3: Life Itself


Thanks to my love of Dan Fogelman’s work on Crazy, Stupid, Love and This Is Us, I thought this movie would be like This Is Us. Unfortunately it was just too sad and not properly balanced. Roger Ebert’s amazing documentary also called Life Itself directed by Steve James is what I think of when I hear the title


#2: 7 Days in Entebbe


Even though the true story of what went down in Entebbe was incredible, the only thing I found confusing was its interpretive dance storyline throughout the movie. Although the song the dance is done through is awesome


And #1: The Happytime Murders


This was the most disappointing movie I had ever seen thanks to its jokes that could’ve funny but were dumb and stupid instead. What a waste for its idea, cast and director Brian Henson. It could’ve been better if it was a 3-minute Robot Chicken sketch than a 90-minute movie
