Apropos of Shannon’s article earlier this week about how this has been the worst movie season in recent memory, let’s put it to a vote. Which movies from the summer of 2016 disappointed you the most?
The unofficial start of the summer movie season seems to get pulled earlier and earlier every year. For the purposes of this poll, I’m defining summer as the beginning of May until now. As a result, a few of the year’s most divisive films don’t qualify. ‘Batman v. Superman’ opened in March, and I just can’t see how that could be called summer.
I’ve tried to list most of the notable wide releases from the past three months. If I missed something, please vote Other and tell us in the Comments. A few of the options were actually pretty popular and acclaimed (including ‘Finding Dory’), but I figure somebody somewhere probably found them disappointing, so I included them.
I’ll have to sit this vote out as an interested observer. As usual, I didn’t get out to the cinema hardly at all this summer. The only movie on this list I saw was ‘Star Trek Beyond’, which I enjoyed for the most part. I won’t be able to form strong feelings about the others until I catch up with some of them on Blu-ray.
Vote for as many titles as you disliked.
