Five Things Friday: Five biggest disappointments in the theatre this year

Happy Fri-yay, everyone. And welcome to the second last Friday of the year. While we are all running around yelling: “I can’t, I just can’t” because how the effing eff did this year get to its’ end, let’s talk for a bit about the five movies I found the most disappointing this year. I haven’t started rolling out any best of 2015 lists, because let’s face it, we are all holding out to see how a certain movie that releases this week shacks up.  The movies I chose for the dubious honor today is not exclusively lowest on the list I have been working all year (#goteamMe), but rather the movies I had hoped would be more. So.

Starring: Shailene Woodley, Theo James, Ansel Elgort, Kate Winslet.

Rating on blog: 5.5/10

Ugh. This entire franchise is just shaping up nowhere where we wanted it to end up as. Sure, it is still running as moderate box office successes and isn’t planking like Vampire Academy did (which I’m not completely happy about) , but it is like Dystopian on Prozac – there, but not really.

Rating on blog: 6/10

Seventh Son ended up being a truly dreadful film, loose around the edges and everyone seemed a bit annoyed that they had been drafted into such nonsense.

Starring: James Marsden, Michelle Monaghan, Liana Liberato, Luke Bracey

I’m just going to start avoiding any new Nicholas Sparks’ films because they lack SPARK.

2. Paper Towns

Starring: Nat Wolff, Cara Delevigne

Rating: 6.5/10

It wasn’t bad, but I had hoped for something with the impact of the Fault in Our Stars, and it just wasn’t. It is so teenagey.Ugh.

Cinderella carriage

  1. Cinderella

Starring: Lilly James, Richard Madden, Cate Blanchett, Helena Bonham Carter

Rating: 6.5/10

I was so extremely excited for this. Meh. It wasn’t bad, but it certainly wasn’t Maleficent either, which I hoped it would be similar to – an original take on the film.

  1. Aw, I liked Cinderella okay. But I skipped Insurgent since I wasn’t exactly blown away by the first film. Sounds like I didn’t miss much. 🙂 And I pretty much hated the Paper Towns book so I’m in no hurry to watch the movie!

    • Yeah I thought Cinderella wasn’t too bad, I just wished it was better 🙂 and Paper Towns was really boring and Insurgent was just NOT the book.
