Last week, we voted on Favorite Blockbusters of 2016. Unfortunately, a lot of movies last year didn’t live up to their promise or hype. What movies were the biggest letdowns for you?
2016 was widely regarded as a year of disappointments. I’m sure that I haven’t cataloged them all in these poll choices. I also know that some people hated blockbusters such as ‘Captain America: Civil War’ or ‘Rogue One’, but that isn’t the prevailing sentiment on those movies. What I’ve tried to do here is find a selection of notable movies that were widely met with mixed or negative reactions. If I missed something that you really disliked, vote “Other” and tell us about it in the Comments section.
Of these that I’ve seen, I was a little disappointed in a lot of the dumb nonsense in ‘Star Trek Beyond’, but I generally liked the movie. I’ve only seen the extended Ultimate Edition of ‘Batman v. Superman’, which is generally agreed to be a big improvement over the theatrical cut that everybody hated, and I thought it was OK. I don’t have much interest in ever watching too many of the others on this list.
