5 Movies That Are Believed To Be The Worst In 2019
We know that many upcoming high-profile films are scheduled for debuts, and we certainly are looking forward to them. Some of them have already released trailers to tickle our taste buds and gain public attention at large. Unfortunately, there are some that look pretty lame, and most fans lose interest in them because of their disappointing teasers. So, without further ado, let's have a look at some of the worst fated movies for 2019.
If you're a fan of musicals, you'll know all about that popular stage musical that was adapted into a film. Some of the popular musical films include Sweeny Todd and other well-known production that studios feel are good enough to take chances on.
Some have even scored Oscar nominations. The reason why they're so popular is that music fans who don't live in New York get a rare chance to enjoy them. In 2019, another well-known musical is said to be hitting the big screen, and not, it's not Hamilton. It's no other than Cats.
This was debuted on Broadway in 1982 and is a loosely plotted show based on a book of poetry by T.S. Elliot, which is, well, clearly about cats, focus on these singing, dancing, frolicking, homeless felines.
Cats' original run ended in 2000, and Hollywood finally decided to recreate the show. This time, it will not be via animation as we have come to expect. It seems like the stars of the movie include Taylor Swift, Ian McKellen, Jennifer Hudson, and James Corden.
They are going to actually dress up in cat costumes! So, does this have any hope of being an Oscar award-winning show? We don't see that happening anytime soon.
4. Cold Pursuit
If we didn't have that aggressive Liam Neeson in our new year to keep things on track, it just wouldn't be the same. Not a surprising storyline, but this time he tracks down a guy and kills a small army of bad guys who, once again, did him wrong.
You get the idea here. We've all followed the three Taken movies, Run All Night, The commuter, and many more. Now comes Cold Pursuit and we are really not that impressed.
This time, Neeson shows off his very particular set of skills as a mild-mannered Rocky Mountains snow-plow driver, named Nelson. He is forced into action, as he usually is, when a drug cartel kills his son.
Unfortunately, Neeson has done this a million times, and there is no amount of popcorn that can stop us from yawning. Why would he do this consecutively?
However, there is one thing that is in favor of this movie, is that it's based on a pretty Norwegian dark comedy called In Order of Disappearance. So, that seems to be a bit of a twist, but is it enough to grab the fans?
3. The Beach Bum
Matthew McConaughey is always a chill and cool character. He plays a beach-loving stoner named Moondog. This may seem familiar, but this movie definitely does not exist. It could sound similar to Surfer, Dude though.
When you think about it, this title actually makes it sound like its a straight-to-video kind of movie with National Lampoon branded all over it. With that 90s comedy twist and indie movie feel, and directed by Harmony Korine, you're already aware of the unsettling projects such as Kids and Gummo.
The only positive is that the cast is likable, such as Zac Efron who plays a guy named "Flicker", then Snoop Dog portrays someone genuinely named "Lingerie", and Martin Lawrence makes an appearance as "Captain Wach". Wow, these are some out-there names!
2. Rambo 5
That's right, because we can never get enough of the big guy. The Rambo movies may hold claim to the film franchise that has veered the furthest from its original intent.
The first entry in the series, First Blood, was the harrowing and tragic story of a PTSD-stricken Vietnam War veteran, starring none other than Sylvester Stallone. This was indeed one of the finest and most nuanced work since the original Rocky.
Then, the second one came along, and it changed everything and soon escalated to the third sequel, which should have actually been called Rambo 2, First Blood Part 3. Of course, the titles never made any sense.
The political climate of the 80s fueled an explosion of action movies that celebrated American patriotism and hardcore violence, so some of the subsequent First Blood sequels had the same broken man becoming a muscle-bound one-man army who routinely shot up the entire village of terrorists.
Hey, it's Rambo; he can do all that stuff. Stallone's career has been reinvigorated in recent years thanks to the success of the old-school action franchise The Expendables, as well as his Oscar nomination for the role of Rocky Balboa in Creed.
As part of this victory lap, Stallone has decided to go and make the completely unnecessary Rambo 5. This time, like Neeson, Rambo will face off against a drug cartel.
We already know the odds, and even though it may be impressive considering both Stallone and his character are well over 70 years old, we aren't too keen on the idea.
1. The Rhythm Section
This movie is pretty much like Peppermint which was 2018's moderately successful Taken rip-off which starred Jennifer Garner. This one stars Gossip girl veteran, Blake Lively, as Stephanie Patrick.
She plays a woman who methodically tracks down a bunch of bad guys because she knows they are responsible for the tragic plane crash that killed her family. Lively is no stranger when it comes to action-packed thrillers, having starred in 2016's The Shallows, but we really don't see any reason to get all excited about this one.
You'll never guess what the best part is... It's actually based on a book series, so you can probably count on a sequel or several somewhere in the distant future.
Well, what did you think about those movies that are said to be rather disappointing? Are you eager to watch any of them? Have you seen the trailers? Let us know in the comments below.
