2015 in Movies: 10 Films You May Have Already Forgotten About
While there have been many memorable movies this year, there have also been a few not-so-great ones that might as well been never made. In fact, these films have been so mediocre that we’ve even forgotten they exists despite the fact that they all opened less than 12 months ago.
Here are 10 less-than-impressionable masterpieces that you probably forgot came out in 2015.
Though fans initially rejoiced when they heard that their favorite Hollywood clique is back for a movie, the silver screen version of the HBO show fell flat on its face after making its box office debut, garnering a 32 percent freshness rating on Rotten Tomatoes. Bye, girl.
It’s never good sign when a movie’s lead actor doesn’t get the premise of the film. When asked “Jupiter Ascending. What was that?” during a Reddit AMA later this year, Channing Tatum replied, “Great question. I have the same one to myself.” Oof.
Zac Efron’s movie about a bro-type character living out is dream as an EDM DJ was like a song without a beat to keep you interested. “A plethora of beats drop but little else of note — musical or otherwise — happens in the Zac Efron DJ fest We Are Your Friends,” one critic wrote. And like with a lot of bad songs, you probably skip and moved on with your life.
Johnny Depp received rave reviews for gritty portrayal of real-life mobster Whitey Bulger in Black Mass. So naturally, the abysmal Mortdecai, which came out in early January, became overlooked. (Thank God.)
5. Get Hard
6. Hot Pursuit
As with Hot Pursuit, The Boy Next Door had so little carrying power that a rumored romance between its co-stars — Jennifer Lopez and Ryan Guzman — became the bigger story. Once the movie flopped, the press moved on and Lopez got back together with her ex-boyfriend, Casper Smart.
The only thing you actually remembered about this movie was just how horrible it was.
This Jake Gyllenhaal and Jessica Biel definitely flew under everyone’s radars. Director David O. Russell wanted to forget this movie so much that he even removed his name from the credits and forced producers to invent a new filmmaker, Stephen Greene, to take his place. Oof.
I mean, does anyone even remember the first Hot Tub Time Machine?
