Da 5 Bloods : Spike lee tryin to bring all black men leading in this film…. i dont know why…sometime i feel like hes being racist here because why all black soldier make exclusivity making group or community in military ..that shouldnt never happen…all people same in military what ever your skin color, race, sexual gender (debatable) etc. i saw alot movie about vietnam war and they never make white so exclusive or black left behind ( dont get me wrong even tho the leading is still white)

Ugh, so many misfires this year. On one hand it’s disappointing that the year of pandemic-induced streaming availability offered mostly unlikeable returns, but on the other hand it makes me glad I didn’t waste at all the time, money, and gas to drive out to see all the bait in theaters.
- A Nun’s Curse: Probably didn’t show up on anyone’s radar because it’s basically just a bomb with a lure title resembling the more famous The Nun (2018) so that people will mistakenly watch it. Awful and incomprehensible screenplay delivered by four actors who look mid-30s playing young college students and “you just didn’t try” direction (unintentionally hilarious, as when the leads fret over an oncoming storm; seconds later the camera pans up to reveal a blue, cloudless sky). Add not one but two cliched, insultingly stupid endings and you have a movie that doesn’t even deserve a half-star rating. When the only somewhat funny moment of a movie is a “bofa deez nuts” joke you know you fucked up.
- After We Collided: I was not responsible for A Nun’s Curse; it was my dad’s turn to pick a horror movie for hanging out together and it is a testament of my love for him that I didn’t roast him THAT badly. After We Collided was like that. One of my best friends and I love roasting bad movies but this was too much. It was so excruciating we could barely summon up a joke in the Teleparty chat. The first movie was bad enough but the second movie removes even that anemic strain of “chemistry” and seemingly forgets the ending so that the uncharismatic, poorly-defined leads can have more will-they-or-won’t-they belligerent sexual tension, not that you will really care one way or the other, and the sexual content is so boring that it makes 365 Days look like Don’t Look Now. Dumb as fuck, overly long and embarrassingly acted, it nevertheless ends in a hook that reminds you that there are still TWO more fucking sequels on the way. Also if you pick Hero Fiennes Tiffin over Dylan Sprouse you are stupid as hell. Thankfully I made it up to K. with a streaming of The Half of It which was actually good.
- I’m Thinking of Ending Things: Controversial because I know self-declared cinephiles and /tv/heads went apeshit over this “absolute kino” but I hated it. I enjoyed the book and read it in basically one sitting, but with someone like Kaufman at the helm I knew not to expect a direct adaptation. Yet I still wanted something better than this. There is only so much pretentious conversation one can stand and I was over this before even the thirty-minute mark. Basically an adaptation in name only but instead of doing something interesting with the material it just turns into a monologuing smug self-important-yet-falls-apart-under-any-dissection wankfest between two characters you couldn’t give a fuck about under any circumstances. I can’t give points for being different when the results are so shitty. The most I could offer was “it looked pretty sometimes I guess.” Waste of perfectly good talent and the new ending was atrocious.

2021 or 2020?
The worst for 2021 so far is Malcolm & Marie . What a silly waste of time for everyone involved, including the audience.
The worst offenses of 2020,
Old Guard – for an action movie, this was slow, self-serious, and most offensively, it’s boring. It was like a Christopher Nolan flick without all the fireworks and twice as long.
the Prom – Even Meryl couldn’t save this trash from the garbage heap. And they couldn’t even solve homophobia correctly! Or did they?
EuroVision – if you take a one-off joke and stretch it to 4 hrs, it was this.
Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom – this one’s greatest achievement is being able to completely drain the art and poetry out of August Wilson’s words.
Pieces of a Woman – A poorly written, overacted (poorly I might add) melodrama that should’ve spent more time in the editing bay. Or cancel it all together.
Tenet – convoluted, self serious nonsense with a lead that has reverse-charisma and a horrible sound design/mixing. Maybe that was the point! It was pretty though
Trial of Chicago 7 – toothless white neoliberal self-congratulation with the cringiest endings in recent memory
The Forty-Year-Old Version
Never Rarely Sometimes Always
Sorry We Missed You

1. Rebecca – Poor casting, added no value to the source material and at times I was unsure what I was even watching. Was it a period piece or a modern piece? Was it an adaptation of Rebecca or a 50 Shades homage? Kristin Scott-Thomas was excellent as she always is but my god every time she had to read that appalling script. Extra points for having a cannibal as the male protagonist.
2. Hillbilly Elegy – There is no “conspiracy” behind people rating this film poorly. It is just atrocious. Its protagonist comes off unintentionally narcissistic in both performance and character writing. Amy Adams (one of my favourite actors) tried her best but the script let down her performance and made what could have been a compelling character rather unconvincing and almost caricaturey. Glenn Close and Haley Bennett were ok though. There is a sequence with something/someone on fire that was so poorly executed that I, someone who has never taken illegal drugs, thought I had been accidentally given a shitty LSD.
3. <i>The United States vs Billie Holliday </i>– This film’s existence is an insult to the name of Billie Holliday.

Artemis Fowl: pathetic and disrespectful to its source material.
Mulan: a bland, soulless adaptation of a classic film.
The Trial of the Chicago 7: a cringe-worthy piece of liberal propaganda.February 12, 2021 at 2:06 pm #1204039474
I haven’t seen enough to name 3 really ‘bad’ movies. But whatever I watch, it will not beat the horror of 365 Days. That movie is terrible, offensive and just utter crap. That’s my #1 for sure.Not now
