R.I.P.D., Bridges, Ryan Reynolds. skip

4. “R.I.P.D.
People usually say that there’s nothing unintentional about movies, that there are no accidents, no mistakes. What to make of this mishap, then, which seems like a grave error in judgment at every step? Who felt the need to give $150 million to the director of “Flightplan”? Who thought this generic comic book premise wouldn’t look like a fourth-rate “Ghostbusters” cash-in? Who designed the creatures, which look like half-finished Cracked Magazine caricatures circa 1991? Who cast the oil-and-vinegar duo of Jeff Bridges and Ryan Reynolds? Who told Bridges that this was Looney Tunes and Reynolds that this was a gritty “Lethal Weapon” reboot? Why is such an expensive movie built around the search for a MacGuffin that looks like an obviously-fake piece of gold plaster that wouldn’t pass muster in a first grade art class? Why do we keep giving Jeff Bridges a free pass when he’s a good actor who is intolerably obnoxious in big budget debacles like this and “Tron: Legacy”? What shiny things did Kevin Bacon buy with the paycheck he received to sleepwalk his way through the villain role in this? Why do they tease us with a sequel? How is it possible that this film feels scotch-taped together from a much longer cut? How could there be more “R.I.P.D.”? It doesn’t even seem that “R.I.P.D.” is bad: no, this is something different. This is an impossible movie.

Grown-Ups 2

3. “Grown Ups 2
It’s too bad for Adam Sandler and company that the title “Contempt” was taken. What more is there to say about Sandler’s cottage industry of repellant, listless garbage that manages to become even more cavalier about how little it regards its core audience? “Grown Ups 2” has less onscreen action than a fucking Bujalski movie, and director Dennis Dugan and company treat this stuff like golden age sitcom material, pausing for laughs as these washed-up former comedians roll around nowheresville USA in khaki shorts and flip flops, taking care only to avoid blocking all the embarrassing product placement. “Grown Ups 2” is not a long movie (IMDb claims it’s 101 minutes too long, actually), but it spends an awfully extended amount of its runtime on bits like the one where Kevin James teaches his washed-up friends how to fart, burp and sneeze at the same time, which Sandler later celebrates by doing so on Salma Hayek. Hayek isn’t seen onscreen during this, and is instead heard in voiceover as Sandler cackles like a jackass; she likely had too much dignity to be present for the filming of such a scene. And yet, it closes the movie, the final indignity of a film starring forty-and-fiftysomethings made for the mind of a ten-year-old, and designed to exploit a nostalgic fanbase in their twenties and thirties. “Grown Ups 2” is to comedy as the gaping maw of Cthulhu is to comedy, a dreadful piece of big-screen bukkake that doesn’t even deserve to be broadcast on the side of a bus station bathroom stall. If there is a “Grown Ups 3,” there’s no spaceship properly equipped to get us off this godforsaken planet fast enough.

Diana Naomi Watts

2. “Diana
So who was Diana Princess Of Wales? In her all too brief 36 years, she experienced celebrity, royalty, scandal, romance, marriage and motherhood all in the very public eye, leading the kind of life few could even imagine. Hers is a story rich with intrigue, politics, charity, personal pain and public spectacle and somehow, Olivier Hirschbiegel’s turgid “Diana” manages capture none of that. Led by Naomi Watts, giving one of the most uninspired performances of her career, she mostly lets her wig do the acting as she navigates a script that reduces a post-Charles Diana into a barely-together shell of a person whose life has no meaning without a man as part of it. But more problematically, “Diana” never really makes the case why Dr. Hasnat Khan (played by Naveen Andrews aka Sayeed from “Lost," with whom Watts shares zero chemistry) was the lifeline for the People’s Princess. In fact, the pair spend most of the film making each other miserable, and refusing to put aside any of their own priorities for the sake of the other person. And when the picture isn’t detailing a relationship with no spark, it’s veering close to the edge of camp, particularly with its hilariously manhandled attempts to use jazz music as a patch of common ground between the new lovers. This is a movie that has two separate scenes of people listening to and appreciating jazz music, man. Isn’t it like, so free, and able to improvise—if only we could live like that! Directed with all the pizzazz of a low-rent TV special, soggy and misshapen from the first frame to the last, Hirshbiegel himself probably could’ve stood to listen to some jazz music before shooting this thing. As it stands, it’s an embarrassment all around, one that will unfortunately have the name Princess Diana forever attached: an undeserved indignity.

A Good Day to Die Hard Bruce Willis

1. "A Good Day to Die Hard"
This year marked the 25th anniversary of John McTiernan's original "Die Hard," easily one of the greatest, most visually complex action movies of all time and a film that single-handedly launched its own unique subgenre. To celebrate, original star Bruce Willis decided to release "A Good Day to Die Hard," the fifth film in the franchise and easily the absolute worst, in which everything that made the original film so compelling and unforgettable is either corrupted or simply ignored. Tough-talking New York City cop John McClane, instead of being a victim of circumstance like in the original film, now just happen to stumble into extraordinary situations at virtually every turn. In "A Good Day to Die Hard," he's visiting his troubled son in Russia when all manner of hell breaks loose, for no apparent reason and without much in the way of context. This leads to a bunch of leaden action set pieces, including a seemingly endless car chase that supposedly took 75 days to shoot (even though, in the final product, you can't make out much of what's going on) and a climax set in the ashy remains of Chernobyl. Unlike the fourth entry, this 'Die Hard' was actually rated R, not that you could tell. Besides being almost completely free of gore and blood (a guy falls into helicopter blades and you don't even see a crimson splatter afterwards), there's barely any coarse language, either. Nobody seems to be having fun in "A Good Day to Die Hard," including Willis, with a limp, flavorless villain and a cast of supporting characters whose colorfulness rarely registers above beige. Never before has "Yippe-ki-yay, motherfucker" meant so little.

Dishonorable Mentions
Aside from the afore-disparaged "Burt Wonderstone" which slid out the bottom twenty at some point in the last six months, but proves it has not been a good year for magician movies, special opprobrium should be heaped on "Jobs" which was on our list for a good while but no one could really even muster up the enthusiasm to hate on it. Late bids "The Secret Life of Walter Mitty," and "Saving Mr Banks" had their vocal detractors but we weren't sure if it was their awfulness or the recentness of their awfulness that was taking precedence, so we relegated them. Then films like "A.C.O.D.," "Black Rock," "Getaway" and "CBGB" had strong cases made for their excommunication, but not enough of us had been unlucky enough to see them to reach a consensus. And other films like "Runner, Runner," "The Internship" "The Fifth Estate" and "Safe Haven" were bad, but maybe worse than bad: bland and so forgettable as to not inspire much passion. In genreville, "Elysium" was more disappointing than outright bad, while the "Evil Dead" remake was both, and dance movie "Battle of the Year" was by all accounts dire, but it did give us the chance to run this dance-off feature so we can't stay too mad at it. And then there are the films that divide us, like "Stoker," which is near-loathed and near-adored in almost equal measure, "The Purge," which has one vociferous hater, one vociferous defender and a whole load of "meh" in between and "Machete Kills!" which also cleaves opinion like, well a machete. Those latter you should tune in to our individual 2013 Best and Worst lists to see represented, and in the meantime, there's no comment section all year more primed for a bunfight, so have at it below. -- Drew Taylor, Katie Walsh, Oli Lyttelton, Gabe Toro, Rodrigo Perez, Sam Chater, Kevin Jagernauth & Jessica Kiang.

    Re: All Is Lost:

    I am not, not, not, in any way, shape, or form, a sailor. I've never even been *on* a sailboat, and in my 60 years I've been in a rowboat exactly twice.

    However, I very much detested this movie because it required me to suspend disbelief.

    The two most egregious items for me: (1) WHY did he leave the life raft tied to an obviously sinking boat and then go to sleep? (2) I kept saying to myself, "I know crap-all about nautical stuff, but SURELY there must be a safety device -- some kind of pinger or transponder -- that one could use in a situation like this. Sure enough, it only took this landlubber a short time with Google, beginning with "emergency transponder," to learn about EPIRBs and other kinds of distress radio beacons. In what world would a multi-zillion-dollar craft like the one depicted in this movie not be outfitted with multiple EPIRBs?

  • Donder | April 12, 2014 11:16 AMReply

    It would seem to me that in Thor 2 if they had used Sam. l. Jackson and the "shield agency" as the secondary point of interest instead of Jane and a bunch of children playing with some hole in the ground? How about having Fury investigating some anomalies that taking place in the world and dealing with some of the effects of the anomalies? President being transported to another dimension and things like that. It seems like they got "lazy" in coming up with a second plot.

  • Badger | April 9, 2014 11:21 AMReply

    I agree with most of the list to some extent.

    And I'm sorry I thought the plotline for Now You See Me was fantastic, that's your vendetta right there cause everyone else I've asked seems to have enjoyed it. Also the fact that you considered Saving Mr. Banks which was freaking beautiful one of the best films in a long time. I'll end on the note that Runner, Runner should've been #1 not on the dishonourable mention cause that movie was absolute tripe, I couldn't watch it till the end.

  • Carlo Trevisan | January 5, 2014 6:07 PMReply

    Your top 20 pretty sucks.
    Is really personally, and have nothing to to with reality.
    First of all there are three movies that aren't nothing special, but not worst of the year:
    City of bones, Jack the giants slayer, After Earth.
    But this is nothing, the crap you've done is after.
    Now you see me is a very good movie, from every point of view.
    Diana isn't that bad. Could be better, of course, but not to put in 20 worst movies of the year.
    There are plenty of craps idiot unneccessary movie (especially horrors, where you can make a 40 worst movie then the entire list you made here).
    And the main misstake is The host. That's a great movie. Put this movie in this ranking means that you don't really understand nothing about cinema.
    Next time you should write "20 movies we didn't like" but not "the worst 20 movie" cause you write a totally personally vision of cinema that clashes with what is really.

  • Lyndsay | January 3, 2014 8:32 AMReply

    AIt seems to me that the movies this writer considers "good" are only the ones filled with language, gore and violence and the movies considered "bad" are the ones that are clean and fun for the whole family. "Now You See Me" was a great film, and "Grown Ups 2" wasn't bad. Movies such as that piece of crap "Pain & Gain" deserve to be on this list, and whoever wrote this (not that I'm taking the time to look) is a total moron.

  • Carlo Trevisan | January 5, 2014 6:09 PM

    Totally agree with you.
    There are films that are nothing special (like After Earth, Jack the giants slayer, etc..).
    But Now you see me is a good movie, and The Host is great.
    There are plenty of horrors idiot movie that can fill the top 50 worst of the year!

  • FP | January 2, 2014 3:22 PMReply

    As always, Playlist gets it right. A comprehensive list of plainly bad films, not disappointing ones. But I am particularly aggrieved that buried in the middle is PARKLAND. I can grant that it is mildly disappointing because one senses it could be better across the board, but Paul Giamatti's performance as Zapruder was perfect, as was Billy Bob Thorton's. I also loved Dale's performance, and disagree on your assessment of Jacki Weaver - she's better in this than in ANIMAL KINGDOM and SILVER LININGS PLAYBOOK. I'd watch a film about her character alone. When you leave off films like WWZ, IDENTITY THIEF, ALL IS BRIGHT, GATSBY, SALINGER, etc., putting a film like PARKLAND on the spit seems more personal than professional.

  • brian | January 4, 2014 12:55 PM

    I agree with your assessment; certainly not a great film but not worthy of a "worst of" list either. Also was impressed with Jeremy Strong's brief performance as Lee Harvey Oswald.

  • taylor | January 1, 2014 6:54 PMReply

    you know not every movie has to have a crazy twisting plotline or tons of action to be good. this review is f""king horrible and seems like you think you can make movies better...grown ups 2 was a funny family movie, kick ass 2 was wonderful and I think the writer of this article is a f""king moron who should make his own movie.

  • John | December 28, 2013 8:34 PMReply

    To me, it was just an unremarkable year at the movies. Whether high budget or low budget, there seemed to be little effort to make decent films on the part of this year's filmmakers.

    I personally loathed the deplorable "Blue Jasmine," Woody Allen's hate letter to the world's movie-going audience. Vile and unpleasant in every respect, it engenders the oh-so-very-un-charitable notion that you can't wait to get Allen off this planet. He obviously has no love at all for life. So, why continue living, Woody?

  • White Owl | December 28, 2013 3:21 PMReply

    Spring Breakers belongs at #1. That is the worst trash I have ever sat through, on par with shit like The Room

  • That_Coop_Guy | December 27, 2013 2:38 PMReply

    How did you guys forget the overrated, overhyped crapfest that is World War Z? It's literally one of the three movies this year (including Elysium and 47 Ronin), that I regretted spending money on. Hell, I wanted to leave halfway through WWZ, but I couldn't because I was with a friend and he drove. Brad Pitt does nothing but "GET TO DE CHOPPA!" the entire movie, running through expensive set piece after expensive set piece from digital zombies. There was no horror, danger, or suspense because we all knew Brad and his family would be fine, completely negating it being a horror movie in the first place. Plus - NO BLOOD! What kind of zombie movie has absolutely no blood in it?? That's like having a cheeseburger without a beef patty!

    Great article, but I'm legit surprised that GI Joe: Retaliation was left out. Now THAT was godawful, not to mention the second shitty sequel that Willis starred in this year.

  • Sebastian | December 14, 2013 7:38 AMReply

    Movie 43, Pain & Gain and Spring Breakers were some of the BEST movies of 2013! That's why their not on here! The critics who hated Movie 43 are puritanical In fact almost any edgy or subversive comedy without a warm and fuzzy moralistic are hated by American critics!

  • Lyndsay | January 3, 2014 8:36 AM

    Excuse me, but "Pain & Gain" was one of the WORST FILMS it has ever been my displeasure to see. The language was bad enough. Why do people only like movies that are filled with language, sensuality and violence? It's sick!

  • Man | December 28, 2013 3:41 PM

    I hope you're being sarcastic about Spring Breakers. That was possibly the worst movie ever made, forget about 2013. It was like the worst bastardization of American History X meets the Parent Trap (Lindsey Lohan version) meets Scarface. It should be taught about in schools it was so bad.

  • parkerguy | December 13, 2013 11:49 PMReply

    I agree with most of the choices on this list, though I don't know why Burt Wonderstone and Movie 43 get a pass. The only one I disagree with was Parkland. I think you're being way too hard on it. Yes, not a great movie, but I thought the productions values were fine and it was a fitting reminder of the events of that tragic day. Definitely worth a video download.

  • cirkusfolk | December 12, 2013 6:26 PMReply

    I try to avoid watching movies I think will be bad, so it makes sense that I've only seen two of the films on this list (Oldboy and Hangover III). And even more fitting is that I gave both of them my lowest score and they, along with Bullet to the Head, are the worst three movies I've seen all year. I'll go ahead and throw Only God Forgives on there too though.

  • Charles | December 12, 2013 6:12 PMReply

    Come on, "I Give it a Year" wasn't that bad. It had funny moments. "Black Rock" was perfectly enjoyable. "Now You See Me" was nonsense, but it wasn't Top-10 bad.

    Completely disagree about "Now You See Me", which was the true definition of a crowd-pleasing popcorn blockbuster; sure it required complete suspension of disbelief, and the ending was a WTF, but still, lots of fun. Also disagree with the commenter who had "All Is Lost" on his list (OMG do I disagree with that person...), and the one who had "The Bling Ring", which was also enjoyable. Personally, I would name "C.O.G." the worst film of the year, and have in several places...what a load of crap for someone as terrific as Jonathan Groff to waste his time on....completely and utterly unfunny, repellent characters, completely phony in tone and feel, and 88 minutes of my life I will NEVER get back...and if you don't believe me, ask the other 150 or so people I saw it with...I don't think ANYONE liked it, judging from the large amount of grumbling coming from everyone leaving the festival I saw it at...

    Hey, to whoever wrote the Dishonorable Mentions section at the end -- How does a film that The Playlist gave a B- review, and called "A Back-To-The-Wilds Slasher With Brains & Bonding To Go With The Blood" come anywhere NEAR a Worst-Of list? I'm talking about Black Rock, of course. The last line of your review of this film says " if you like your scares smart, and like them to happen to people you actually care about, then Aselton's island of friendship and fury is a nice place to visit". So, sure, this doesn't seem like best-of-year material, but it sure as hell doesn't sound like worst-of material either.

    So, really, I'm just wondering how a movie can get a B- score and a largely positive review and STILL wind up dishonorably mentioned at the end of the year. WTF?

  • MistaTMason | December 13, 2013 2:35 AM

    The B- was on critic on the site's review. The Worst of the Year list comes from a consensus among the staff. It may well end up some of their "best of" lists, as well as on some of their "worst of" lists.

  • bohmer | December 12, 2013 1:13 PMReply

    good list, but I would've replace Kick-Ass 2 by Upside Down. People in the comment trend don't make any sense. Like including All is Lost or Upstream Color as plain old bad. LOLZ

    I'm a bit surprised that ONLY GOD FORGIVES isn't on here. It was a pretty repulsive exorcism of the director's demons. It was critically reviled, but maybe it was left off of this list because it mostly flew under the radar? It was reviewed well on the Playlist, but I'm not sure that saves it from scorn.

    What a bizarre point. we can't criticize unless we've made a movie ourselves? Doesn't that mean we also can't appreciate a movie unless we've made one?

    "You may think you liked that movie, but you don't really know because you've never made one."
    I wonder why no one has said that, ever? Maybe because... it's moronic?

    Well, if Steve Jobs is so smart, how come he's dead?

  • Joe | December 12, 2013 12:50 PMReply

    Yeah, Robin Williams wasn't even making movies in the 1970s, guys.

    Steve Jobs isn't dead, he programmed his consciousness to the Mac OS.

    Seriously. And Susan Sarandon was hardly important until the 80s. Also, de Niro hit his peak in 1980 with Raging Bull, so -- more like the 80s

  • Glass | December 12, 2013 2:08 PM

    People can hardly muster the patience to read a blog's Worst Films list, so the list of a random commenter doesn't stand a chance, bro :(

  • Monica | December 12, 2013 12:39 PMReply

    Where's Man of Steel?

  • Christmas | December 14, 2013 9:13 PM

    Because there was enough unintentionally funny moments to make it entertaining; giant dildo spaces ships, crazy obvious Jesus metaphors, Kevin Costner's death, dressing superman like a Gap model, superman killing thousands of people knocking buildings and "WHERE DID YOU TRAIN? A FARM?!!!"

  • Tom | December 12, 2013 1:33 PM
