Rinzy’s 5 worst performing movies of 2016

These 5 movies were Rinzy Reviews’ worst for the year 2016. After major hypes, and enticing trailers (God! We hate it when they use trailers to lie!) These movies fell way below expectations when we finally got the chance to watch them.
In increasing order of disappointment, they are:

 

5. Divergent: Allegiant

Budget: $110m
Box-office: $179.2m
Starring: Shailene Woodley, Theo James, Jeff Daniels, etc.

I’m not so surprised this movie is here. The last two installments (especially, Insurgent) had been struggling to survive: with lesser box office revenues, and lower ratings, a lay-man would have suspected. And now, this once promising series has finally met its creator. It’s situation is so bad that Lionsgate (the studio in charge of its production) is considering sending the last installment to the TV to die.

4. Ben Hur

Budget: $100m
Box-office:$94.1m
Starring: Jack Huston,Toby Kebbel, Morgan Freeman, etc.
One of the movies to get me excited for it release through the awesomeness of its trailer was Ben Hur. This bible adapted story had a lot going for it in the trailers, but all fell short of the hype when it was released. Probably it is God punishing them for making a movie of a man during the life time of his son.

3. Suicide Squad

Budget:$175m
Box-office: $745.6m
Starring: Will Smith, Margot Robbie, Viola Davies, Jai Courtney, etc.

This David Ayer’s directed movie confirmed to me that DC haven’t perfected the art of making quality movie. Two things. They had either hire back Christopher Nolan. Or, they get Greg Berlanti of the Arrowverse (CW’s DC TV-universe Director) to handle the big screen for them. This was a huge disappointment, and having big named stars to its credit couldn’t save it.

Just like the other DC movie in this list, it raked in a lot of money despite its very poor review.

DC had better not repeat history with their planned DC Gotham City Siren movie.

2. Gods of Egypt

Budget: $140m
Box-office: $150.7m
Starring: Gerald Butler, Elodie Yung, Nikolaj Costar-Waldau, etc.
Talk about resources being thrown into the trash. After suffering through backlashes from the public for white-washing (using white actors to play traditionally colored characters) this movie still bombed big time. The graphics were so poor, too bright, yet poor. The story-line, painfully plotted. God have mercy.

1. Batman vs Superman: Dawn of Justice

Budget:$250m
Box-office: $873.3m
Starring: Henry Cavill, Ben Affleck, Amy Adams, Gal Gadot, etc.

This is the most horrible movie of the year, 2016. I should have said it is the greatest bomb in recent memory, but the scar Fantastic Four (2015) left on me is still fresh. The trailers offered us hope. Batman, Superman, and Wonder-woman in the same movie. DC’s Trinity in the same movie! But the result after years of hope was painful. A poor plot. Common! Who stops a catastrophic fight simply because their mothers have the same first name? Worse was, How could Batman have withstood Superman for that long in a fight were a punch from Supes could wrangle Battie’s neck?

Zack Snyder really did outdo himself with this.

And messed up my year.

Notable mentions
– The Huntsman: Winters war: This was a very unwanted sequel. Though the hypes and talks of the dreaded Huntsman from Snow White and The Huntsman made us doubt our resolve to say no to more. This sequel confirmed our initial decision.

– Alice Through The Looking Glass: The movie producers of this franchise thought they could bait us with a half-baked sequel after six years of them making more than a billion with the first installment.

 

THE REASON FOR THIS SERMON

For those who haven’t watched to know what they’re going into when they want to.
