Remember All the Movies You’re Glad You Didn’t See With This Supercut of 2012′s Stinkers [VIDEO]

The team at NextMovie has made a video that calls out the worst films of the year by using their own dialogue. It’s a clever idea, though I’m wincing at the thought that the people who put this together had to watch all these movies to pick out the perfect lines.

In a somewhat a related note, I was at the movies yesterday and one of the trailers was for Gangster Squad. The final seconds had Sean Penn‘s character saying “You’re gonna be begging for a bullet before it’s over.” It made me laugh. A bit of an awkward quote to advertise your movie with, methinks?

    Aw, I really liked JOHN CARTER. Not sure why it drew such vehemently negative reactions. Pretty sure it has more to do with confusion stemming from the film’s marketed (non)identity than the film itself.

    I had the same reaction to the Gangster Squad TV spot that ends with one of the cops shooting a guy on the ground while snarking about how he doesn’t play by the rules. What a bad time to release that movie…

    This is like when they tried to release that neighborhood watch movie with Ben Stiller right after poor Travyon Martin was killed

    Oh, c’mon, This Means War was cute. Now Ghost Rider was a horrible, horrible, horrible mistake.

  • Rogue Simulant

    I agree totally Adi; JOHN CARTER was a fun, well-made pulp sci-fi adventure that brought Edgar Rice Burroughs’ imaginings to life beautifully, and didn’t deserve to bomb so colossally. With some better marketing and a more enticing title (A Princess Of Mars of John Carter Of Mars, perhaps?), this could have been more successful. If there’s any justice this will become a cult favorite on Blu-Ray and DVD.

    {Opens a window to let the smell out} I feel a true “dud” is one with pretensions of greatness. “Abe Lincoln Vamp whatever” died at the box office, yes, but I didn’t feel the makers were thinking “THIS will get us an OSCAR”. I got the impression they were saying “Come on. The other half is working for another few hours. The theatre’s AC’ed and the popcorn’s fresh. Have a seat and we’ll give ya a few laughs. Beats killing time in the mall, right?” Likely same for “This means war”.

    Now “Carter” was set up as delivered from the hand of God herself and deserves the scorn of the thousand lifetimes upon it.

    This video is more a list of opportunities, using movie quotes that could describe a bad movie, than a real list of the “worst” movies of this past year. Abe Lincoln was no great movie but still funny and deliberately cheesy, and I remember good reviews for some other flicks. Good exercice, though…

    Also I realize that there is actually a movie filtering in France, not all the comedies or romantic movies are crossing our border (sometimes for the greater good I guess).

    I enjoyed Abe Lincoln Vampire Hunter a great deal. Not a great movie, but fun nonetheless.

    Because there was a man in the starring role. Marysuers wail and rant when that happens because it’s clearly the worst possible outcome for anything, ever.

  • Anonymous

    Exactly. Something tells me the Marysuers have no idea what ‘fun’ means. They never seem to laugh at anything, to like anything, I’m almost sure they don’t know how to love and have no soul.

  • Rebecca Pahle

    When did we ever rant about John Carter starring a man?

  • Anonymous

    That’s what it always comes down to. As I recall the shrilling started because the title was changed from Princess of Mars—and thus suddenly a woman was no longder at the forefront.

    I quite liked the Total Recall remake, it wasn’t perfect, but there was plenty of cool sci-fi fun moments to keep me entertained. I also enjoyed Ghost Rider in a “so bad it’s good” way and Dark Shadows I enjoyed, but I have no reference point on the original material.

    I liked that they used the Hasslehoff clip for Piranha 3DD, the Hoff was the only vaguely entertaining part of that movie.

    #1 – MarySue didn’t make the video. #2 – Why are you here?

  • Annie Wang

    I’m a little surprised Snow White and Tho–excuse me, Snow White and the Huntsman didn’t make it into this video. That was just a painful movie. Visually it was pretty stunning though, maybe that counted in its favor.

    Hahaha, whether you agree with NextMovie’s opinion or not the dialogue they chose in response to each movie was terribly funny.

    1. Who cares if they did or didn’t? 2. What does it matter? I’m a woman; feminism is supposed to be about women freely voicing their opinions, yes?
