Exodus: Gods And Kings
Christian Pale and Joel Egypton couldn’t save this epic fail from the ten plagues of bad historical filmmaking: first comes the river of white washing, followed by the tweets of Rupert Murdoch, and concluding with overabundance of guyliner.
Into The Storm
Paranormal Activity: The Mexican Ones
Only the Hollywood Lords know exactly how many of Michael Bay’s cars Megan Fox had to wash in a bikini to get back in the director’s good graces. Whatever the number, the end result was not worth it.
The Hobbit: Battle Of Five Armies
Look, it’s just bad. There’s no other way to describe two and a half hours of nonsensical fighting, inconsistent CGI and monologuing in a shiny cave. As disappointing and frustrating as it was, five out of six films still ain’t bad, ay Peter Jackson?

Transformers: Age Of The Rise Of Whatever The Fuck
The redest, hottest and messiest of Michael Bay’s seminal Red Hot Mess franchise.
