Well, the 2010's are over, and so are their movies. There's been many great ones we've had the pleasure of seeing - and many stinky ones! The IMDb Poll Board members have chosen their top 5 worst movies from the 2010's. You know, the ones that they think no human being should be ever subjected to again. Which picks do you agree with most?

Please tell me the five movies from the 2010's that made you cringe!  Please steer away from the ones were so bad you loved them - I mean the ones that nobody should have to watch again.  :)

Note: I humbly ask that this poll not go live until after Jan. 1st, 2020.  There may be more stinkers ahead!  That being said, you may change your picks anytime.  Thank you!

List: https://www.imdb.com/list/ls095061019/

Kick-Ass
Ghostbusters
Detective Pikachu
Un Homme à la Hauteur
Asterix and Obelix at the Olympic Games

They might not be the worst movies of the decade, but from what I've watched, they're the movies that got the lowest ratings. In fact, there's one movie here i didn't watch, the only movie I ever boycotted and I rated it a "1" for its premise, trailer and hypocrisy (and it's not Ghostbusters).

ElMo, if your Asterix movie is from 2008, you need to come up with another pick, or provide me with the link to the correct one - I might just not be able to find it.  :)

All right, go with American Sniper, I'm not saying it's one of the worst films of the decade, far from it, but it was one of my worst experiences.

Great!  Haven't seen MIB (probably should just because) but yes!  Venom was so bad!  Looks like you have pretty good taste.  :)

NarniaisAwesome, I liked Venom (2018), but I won't expect anyone to like a cheesy b-movie that was somehow made in 2010's with a serious face (seriously: the movie is practically 1988's Brain Damage in disguise, I even made a video essay about that because fewer people seemed to notice) and succeeded the way I like oddities like that. :)

"Brain Damage in disguise" a perfect way to put it.

I actually liked Brain Damage.

Ardan Tüzünsoy, it's hard to surprise me with a weird movie because I've seen thousands of those at this point, but Brain Damage actually managed to do exactly that. Frank Henenlotter is rivaling David Lynch in terms of how unusual his way of thinking (and subsequently his directorial style) is.

Since Birdemic and The Last Airbender have already been chosen I'll exclude them from the list but they would be my actual number 1 and 2.

Movie 43 
A Haunted House  
Divergent
Everything Must Go 
Silent House

Okay as much as I hate Divergent can you replace it with the far worse The Starving Games (2013). I didn't want to give this movie attention but it certainly belongs on here.

I stay away from titles like 50 Shades or anything with Johnny Depp in it, so I haven't seen them and cannot judge. But to me, the worst of the decade so far (and I admit I didn't actually finish this one either) is Holmes & Watson.

Ooh, yes, Holmes and Watson was awful - I only got about 8 minutes into it and quit, too.  :)  But it was more boring than actually painful, so it didn't make my list.

You are wise to avoid Johnny Depp.  I've yet to see anything with him that was good.

Would you like to pick four more for the poll, or wait til closer to the end of the year?

In my humble opinion, these are some decent movies with him:

Ed Wood (1994)
Donnie Brasco (1997)
The Ninth Gate (1999)
Blow (2001)

Depp is a fine actor, but if a movie is a "Johnny Depp movie" then it's bound to be terrible. (I mean movies that instead of giving us an interesting story, try hard to capitalize on the fact that the star is the ubercool, hypersexy, his superhuman highness Johnny Depp)

The best movie with Johnny Depp that I saw was Dead Man. He was perfect for the role.

He was also quite good in a few others as well, mostly pre-2000 roles. Ed Wood, like you said, was one of them.

Then he started to get full of himself, and it reflected in his roles. Today his roles with his real face may even be outnumbered by his roles behind masks or extreme makeup.

But perhaps I'm a little biased. I once saw him on Letterman and for years I haven't forgotten how full of himself he was. I almost expected him to start caressing his biceps and kissing himself, going "Mmmm yes, I'm Johnny Depp. Yesss, Depp, that's me, eat your heart out losers, this is the Depp-man here. Mmmm I'm oh so hot and amazing..." I just can't get over that interview. I hate people like that, so I started seeing that person even in his good performances.

I saw an episode of 21 Jump Street a while back and realized that was Johnny Depp... I was shocked!  He looked so different - dare I say normal? - in a role without 50,0000000 gallons of makeup on his face and 3,000 feet of wig on his head!  :D

I don't watch many new movies, unless they're very promising or unless I have to (I translate subtitles for a network) So I'll choose among ones I worked on, or somehow had to watch:

1- Holmes & Watson
2- Project X
3- Higher Power
4 - A Wrinkle in Time
5 - The Fast and The Fierce (okay, it's low budget and all, but you really need to see this one to experience how low a movie can sink)

and a couple of contenders

Jerusalem Countdown (it's doubtful if this should be considered a movie, or a scream for LET'S NUKE ANYONE WHO IS NOT AMERICAN OR CHRISTIAN !!!)
Selfie From Hell
Baywatch
Bro
A Million Ways to Die in the West

I only have a list of the films I like/love, and I don't rate films on IMDb (aside from the ones I gave 10/10, not because I want to bump their ratings, but only because I want to have a 'list' of my favorite films ever). What I want to say is, I try to forget films I consider bad, rather than feeding my hate for them, by remembering them. So, that means I certainly cannot remember the absolute five worst films of the decade - I've watched a lot of crap, and I've forgotten a lot of crap. What I can remember, however, are my top five disappointing films. They might not all be THAT bad, but the disappointment I felt was worse than the feeling you get after you watch a bad film, especially since I looked forward to these movies:

Star Wars: The Force Awakens - 10 years waiting for a new Star Wars film, and we get a remake of A New Hope, with some Empire and Jedi sprinkled throughout

Star Wars: The Last Jedi - instead of digging itself out of a hole Force Awakens created, it dug it deeper, and covered itself with dirt

The Hobbit Trilogy - (yes, I consider them a single movie, like I do LotR) - this trilogy didn't know where it's going, what it's doing, and what it wants to be 

Terminator: Dark Fate - renaming characters doesn't mean you've written anything new (similar problem like with Force Awakens)

Avengers: Endgame - after a masterpiece that was Infinity War, and the fun that all previous 20 or so MCU films gave to me, this one was the first that felt like a FAN FILM - just an utter mess

Infinity War is alright for me as escapist entertainment, however I personally found Endgame to be the decade's single most overrated movie. I like the send off to Tony Stark and Steve Rogers although the story felt too bloated and felt as though they needed to tick all the checkboxes instead of making a good movie. 

I really like Edge of Tomorrow except for the ending and Brightburn I also found okay, at least it had some inventive horrific deaths.

For obvious reasons, I am restricting my list to Feature Films with a reasonable budget and at least 10,000 votes on IMDb.

From worst:

1. Fantastic Four (2015)
2. Antiviral (2012)
3. The Blackcoat's Daughter (2015)
4. Maze Runner: The Scorch Trials (2015)
5. Mother! (2017)

BTW, I saw Terminator Dark Fate... didn't think it was too bad, gave it 6 stars.  
Not the best movie ever (obviously), but it was okay for the usual Terminator fare.
And Arnie was so good as Carl, of course.

I was disappointed, as I said in the other thread.

I was also disappointed with "Knives Out." It was too long and drawn out, Daniel Craig was ridiculous and totally miscast, Jamie Lee Curtis was underutilised and Ana D'Armas was likely a victim of poor direction.

Plummer was fine, given that he was only seen in flashbacks, and Chris Evans was pretty good.

It was like they were trying to make an Agatha Christiesque film, and failed horribly.

Interested to see it; but I already see what you mean about Craig; for some reason he didn't ring true as a Sherlock Holmes-type detective.

I thought Craig was perfect in the role :(. He subtly conveys someone who withholds how much he sees through things even as James Bond, and he has a great dry sense of humor.

Hey NarniaisAwesome

This is off topic, but I'm throwing the idea out there... there is a poll for the Top 5 movies of 2019, but none (to my knowledge) of the Top 5 of the decade.

Would you want to set one up? I could do it myself but I am feeling LAZY.

FWIW my choices:

1. Inception (2010)
2. Shutter Island (2010)
3. Joker (2019)
4. The Loft (2014)
5. Happy Death Day (2017)
