Now for the fun part! As much as I love talking about the “Best in Film”, I especially love to share my thoughts on the stinkers of the year. However, sadly, due to either lack of interest or finances, I try to avoid seeing what I believe to be clunkers as much as I can, unless they interest me or are on my anticipated lists, which is why I never seem to call these the “Worst in Film”, but instead my “Bottom Picks”. Honestly, I have barely seen any terrible movies this past year, which makes listing them that much harder. Not all the films that are on this list are “terrible” or the “worst”, but just either mediocre, disappointing, or at the bottom of my movies list in the past year. So buckle up and take a trip down the bottom of the well where you will find my lowest films of 2018!
The idea of puppets doing shocking things is not new in the entertainment industry; before ‘The Happytime Murders’, there were ‘Avenue Q’, ‘Team America: World Police’, and ‘Meet the Feebles’ have all surprised, offended, and tickled the funny bones of audiences looking for some raunchy puppet entertainment. The thing is, ‘The Happytime Murders’ was brought to you by Brian Henson, who has stepped into his late father, Jim Henson’s shoes with films like ‘Muppet Treasure Island’ and ‘The Muppet Christmas Carol’. Now, he has strayed away from the sweetness that is ‘The Muppets’ into a gritty, offensive, and socially relevant world of ‘The Happytime Murders’.
May is around the corner, which – in Hollywood terms – means that summer is about to start. As always, there are movies to look forward to, whether they are potential blockbusters, trips of nostalgia, or an Indie flick destined to become a critical darling (and a possible awards contender), I am here once again to give you a more in-depth look at my top 10 most anticipated films scheduled to release in the summer of 2018! As always, on with the countdown!
This is the moment I have been waiting for! We are getting closer to the new year, which means I get to talk about (and share) the upcoming movies I am excited for in the new year! Some of these may be weird choices to you, but to me, these movies are what make me look forward to going to the movies. Also, feel free to let me know what your Top 10 anticipated movies are!
