Every year, there are hundreds of movies released that suck from conception to execution to final product. At no point do they have any chance of working. They’re bad ideas, involving bad directors, aimed at stupid people. In short, they’re giant wastes of time.

Every year, there are a dozen or so movies that could conceivably work. They have large budgets, talented actors and people who could potentially care, but for whatever reason, they’re not very fun to watch. Something about the project just doesn’t quite come together, and they end up disappointing the shit out of everyone.

The following list is our guess at which movies released this year will fall into that later category. It’s our chance to come clean and admit certain things kind of look like a mess. Whether it’s because of bad buzz, a questionable concept or bad chemistry between the leads, these movies have giant red flags. We hope they work. We’ll jump in and give them a chance, but from where we’re sitting, they look terrible.

Fantastic Four
The Fantastic Four
When The Fantastic Four reboot was first announced, I was so in. The first round of movies with Jessica Alba & company didn’t really come together, and I wanted to see someone do them correctly. Director Josh Trank seemed like the man to do it, but here we are, in mid-January, and we haven’t seen a damn piece of footage. Even more troubling, rumors are swirling that Trank destroyed the production house and was a complete dick to the crew. Now we’re getting an untold amount of reshoots.

I desperately want this movie to work. I really, really do. But at this point, we all need to admit things look pretty bad.
