Worst Films of 2015


For some reason, people tend to enjoy negative reviews.  They just love calling out bad movies. Maybe it's a sense of "sticking it to the man". Or maybe it's a type of Schadenfreude.   I can't say.   But the fact is that my Worst Films posts often receive a relatively large amount of page views.   But, a few caveats:
  • Like most people, I try to avoid seeing bad movies.  So some of the most criticized movies of the year may not appear here simply because I haven't seen them.
  • I realize you probably haven't heard of most of these movies, as most of them were film festival fare (some of which are quite popular among festival programmers and attendees for some reason?!)  So I've formatted the wide releases you may have heard of in green
