It’s going to happen every year. There is no way around it. No matter who you are, or what film genre you appreciate most, some movies are going to disappoint you. The problem is, film is art in the sense that it is subjective, and means different things to different people. So who are we to say one movie is bad and another is good?
All art gets critiqued, but that doesn’t mean the critique has to be listened to or appreciated. I think the reality is, going to the movies is rather expensive, and a critique is set in place to simply help you decide whether you should invest the time or money in said film. The six films on this list are ones that I would have told you not to see, but it’s a little too late now.
Sometimes, the bad is just unavoidable. That was the case with many of these, for the simple fact that these looked like they may have been good movies, or at least entertaining. But a good trailer and a few big names actors and actresses is all it takes to throw us off. These films dragged us to the theaters with high hopes, and we walked away letdown.
Doesn’t matter the genre, doesn’t matter who is starring or directing, some arrows just miss the mark. Though there were many great films in 2013, here are six movies that should have been good, but just weren’t.
Also, let me stress the following. As stated earlier, the medium of film is subjective, and this is just my opinion. There is no right or wrong here. Just one guy’s look at six movies from 2013 that disappointed.
