The worst movies of 2017
Here's the sad truth about the movie business: much as we might hope for a classic viewing experience every time we step into our local theater, not every movie can be Vertigo or Citizen Kane. You're always going to have a few disasters mixed in with the masterpieces, and 2017 isn't any different. While the year produced some truly great films, it also had its fair share of clunkers, from malformed horror movies and badly made biopics to overbearing blockbusters that just might give you a migraine. Here's a look back at some of the least inspired releases that Hollywood put out between January and December—a real rogues' gallery of misbegotten ideas, flawed execution, and straight up mistakes. Maybe time will prove the critics wrong about a few of these films, but at this point, it doesn't seem likely—and they're the most (un)popular picks for the absolute worst movies of 2017.
