Trung Rwo's Top 10 Worst Movies of 2014

Is it too late for a list like this? Even if so, I still decided to make a list of some films that I never want to see again. 

Similar to last year, these films may not necessarily bad, but they're the "least liked", offensive or most disappointing ones for me. I usually try to avoid watching bad movies because I don't want to waste my precious time. Even so, of all films I watched this year many snuck in that did not interest me or that I found unbearable unbearable.

Here's my top 10 worst movies of this year, mostly blockbusters. Note that this is only my personal opinion, so it may be different than yours. 

Honorable Mention: I know these movies are in the list of everyone's Top 10, but I can't say that I like them.

Interstellar: is the most disappointing film of 2014. Christopher Nolan is smart, but he has some trouble showing it. With his previous films, he proved his intelligence by building film structures, psychological characters, personality conflicts, unique visuals ... But, Interstellar can only explain things with boring dialogue like a teacher trying to demonstrate their high level of erudition. Interstellar may be not a bad film per se, but it's the worst work that Nolan ever did.

Boyhood: is a pretentious bore. 12 years in the making (always mentioned in the PR), but the film follows to a lifeless and boring main character that I forgot right after watching. Linklater tries to make it real with his direction, to make his audience identify with the characters, but I can't watch a movie about someone that I don't care about, to confirm my feelings, my boyhood. I'm familiar with slice-of-life drama, but Boyhood is so pretentious with clich├ęd dialogue to teach me some lessons about life. I don't need that gimmick.

"Other bad films, imo"

When did Twitch become Buzzfeed? Most Top 10 lists are accompanied by at least a paragraph of description... and editing should be a requirement if each description has around a sentence or two. Transformers: "Unreasonable lengthy fight scenes in many unnecessarily location with too many ridiculous product placements, this film is a mess of bullshit." That sentence is a bit of a mess of bullshit...

"these films may not necessarily bad, but they're the "least liked", offensive or most disappointing ones for me."

Kind of goes against the idea of a "worst films" list, doesn't it?

And I agree with cablebfg...this is a list long on one person's single opinion and very little substance. Criticism isn't just opinion, and at least the other Twitchfilm lists contained a link to in-depth reviews and/or had more thoughtful descriptions justifying the film's inclusion on the list. This feels like simple mudslinging.

As a strict ex-critic, I understand the author of this post. If I hate a film, I decline to write anything about it. I googled this man and found out he actually had a review blog, but it's written in a foreign language. Anyway, I think he made a point with his words, and I'm curious about his top 10 best films.

Not sure where you found this guy, but you can send him back. I'll echo other comments pointing out his inability to support his opinions with anything like insight, good writing or critical acumen. Seriously, this is far beneath Twitch's standards, and even, for that matter, beneath AICN.

Wow, dude. Sorry, but you might or might not be aware Twitchfilm is a tiny site. The other Twitch is that way >

wagnerfilmJanuary 10, 2015 10:09 AM

No idea why you think my comment indicated I was confusing a movie site with a game streaming site. Maybe you aren't aware that's what the other Twitch is? Or maybe you just lacked the ability to reply with anything relevant or on point?

We prefer to think of ourselves as 'nimble'.

billydakingJanuary 10, 2015 7:26 PM

Tiny or not, Twitchfilm contains mostly excellent criticism and solid coverage of many films that normally do not get it, which is why I've been stopping by for several years (heck, Todd's review introduced me to Jade Warrior, which is now one of my favorite films). It does have a (nimble) standard that it's earned.

"The film ends abruptly at the climax made many viewers yell WTF for the bad scenario."

I know it's been said, and I hate to join in on the bashing, but this writing really feels below the standard set by the rest of the website. The phrasing there is so strange it almost makes me wonder if the article was written in a different language and translated or something (the author does have a Vietnamese name, I see). Which, if that's the case, the odd syntax is totally forgivable.

But publishing it like this, with such brief explanations that fail to actually explain or support the points being made (for example, I am none the wiser as to why Exodus was perhaps the "most offensive" movie of the year), definitely stands out on a website like Twitch.

I'd normally stay away from posting comments like this because, really, who gives a shit what I have to say? I can just close the tab, right? Honestly, I think the only reason I felt compelled to say something is because I respect this site so much. I'm mad-jealous of you guys. You're awesome writers with great taste in film, running the best damn film blog on the web. So when I see something posted here that feels like it completely missed any quality control, it bums me out. Like... I could have written that, man. And I suck.

This article could have used some editing, is what I'm saying, I guess.

broJanuary 11, 2015 8:00 AM

Ive been here long enough to not expect too much from a single fucking paragraph, and Ive also been here long enough to not recognize your contributions in the Comments Section. Speaking of, go back to your easy targets on Fox News, or where ever, please. I too can hit the toilet bowl when standing in front of it.

billydakingJanuary 11, 2015 11:56 PM

"a single fucking paragraph"

The point is, the single fucking paragraph wasn't worth the time to read, so why post it in the first place? Which is why this feels more like a Bleacher Report/Buzzfeed slide show than a Twitch Film post, and why some readers have complained about it.

And I've never seen you around either, so drop calling the kettle black.

I prefer to think of the sentence as unbearable unbearable.

InvisiGhostOctober 6, 2015 6:37 PM

according to the article the author didn't hardly care for each his own though so not going to knock his opinion..I agree with Exxodus and Transformers as not being too great but most the others were ok, not the best ever, but not the worst..

Samuel WallaceOctober 7, 2015 11:27 AM

I disagree with "Lone Survivor" being a dishonorable mention. The film had really good action and really it's more of a reenactment than it is a "film" per se, which I guess is why it's not liked. Quality-wise it's about on par with "American Sniper", which seeing as the respective main characters trained together in real life, I consider them a double-feature. The style and realism and straight-forward-ness is actually almost identical. The other films I haven't seen, so. Uh, wait, what website am I on anyways?

Please learn what "pretentious" means before using it in future articles.

Tank ManhammerOctober 31, 2015 5:22 PM

Trung Rwo should stick to listening to Psi and stay out of the world of cinema or journalism. I rearry rearry solly if this offend anyone.

Anubis2705November 4, 2015 12:05 AM

If these are the worst films of 2014, this must have been the best year for movies ever. Hobbit, 300: Rise of an Empire and Exodus were kind of a disappointment, but nor actually bad.

Gomez PantsNovember 14, 2015 10:21 AM

I hate stupid stereotypes, but I will let you pass because the english in this listicle is terrible. velly velly bad

Gomez PantsNovember 14, 2015 10:23 AM

oh 'nimble' means 'clickbait garbage name dropping shit site' now?
