The 10 Worst Movies of the Last 10 Years as Per Rotten Tomatoes

Webster dictionary defines a cinemaholic as someone who has an undying passion and love for movies. Even bad ones. There is absolutely nothing more gut-wrenching for a movie aficionado to watch a movie which timid in its ambition, and poor in the execution.  Over the years, there have been a select few which have ensconced themselves with rigid assuredness in our conscience. These horrible movies have a hoi polloi if victims, with many rating sites going on to pan them. One such site, Rotten Tomatoes, is perhaps the most globally accepted standard of recognizing a movie. The erudite critics and the ardent fans make for a deadly combination, and hence produce one of the most in-depth and comprehensive of reflections of the movie.

We, therefore, decided to take a macabre sojourn to the past, to list out some movies so bad, they were rated a ZERO on Rotten Tomatoes. Happy reading! Or, just read. (sigh)

 

10. Cabin Fever (2016)

No, not the first one. Apart from the classic paradoxes in science and technology, one such being The Bermuda Triangle, or how Donald Trump trumped the USA Presidential Elections, there is still one which will never be solved: why Eli Roth decided to remake his own movie? The 2016 horror-flick (literally), is a beat-to-beat remake of Roth’s 2002 film of the same name. The premise follows a group of school friends, who rent a cabin in the woods and kill an ailing man. When his body falls in the reservoir, it contaminates the water in it. One of them drinks it and the journey to hell begins. Though the first movie was a classic, a film more than just some gory scares, and had some credibility, the second had people stumped as to why the movie was made. And there’s a lesson ladies and gentlemen. Never make a movie for commercial reasons.

 

9. Christmas Eve (2015)

You would think a film starring Patrick Stewart, Gary Cole, and Julianna Guill would be decent, if not great. Well, think again. Because the by-product of their amalgamation and a horrendous script almost took our lives. A power outage changes the lives of six groups of New Yorkers (Patrick Stewart, Jon Heder, James Roday) when they become trapped in elevators on Christmas Eve. Though the premise doesn’t seem as bad prima-facie, it will make you cringe with hatred and pain once you see its extended story. Just, why?

 

7. Dark Tide (2012)

You would expect a bikini-clad Halle Berry would save a movie. Well, apparently not. This 2012 film couldn’t salvage a damn thing, let alone the producer’s money. Following Kate, “the shark whisperer”, and her newfound fear of sharks (ironic), the film is a disaster from the first minute to the last. The script is bad. The acting, whilst not inspiring or tepid, is decent. But the ZERO rating? I don’t think so it is justified. Should have been something like MINUS ten.

 

6. A Thousand Words (2012)

A dishonest agent is afflicted by a curse that would kill him if he speaks over 1000 words. His attempts to keep quiet wreak havoc on his life. Can he find a way to break the curse and save his life? Eddie Murphy is a master of disguise. His brazen and awe-inspiring looks and costumes over the years have always kept the audiences guessing. This time around, he disguised a toilet paper for a script. And the best part was: we never knew. This is perhaps the only time, that ‘a thousand words’ left me speechless.
