10 Worst Movies of 2012

As we established in our list of the 25 Best Movies of 2012, it was a pretty great year at the multiplexes.
But in what you are about to read below, well, there is no "good."
Some of these actually didn't do too badly in the box office and one might incite some rage from a certain fan army (sorry guys, but our whole staff agreed!), but either way, we want to know what you think. Read up on our 10 clunkers of 2012 and hit up the comments section below with your two cents.

5. 'Snow White and the Huntsman'
More like "Snow White and the Hunts-mehhh." Kristen Stewart is great at posing and making tough faces while wearing just-for-ladies armor on a red carpet, but a master thespian she's not. K.Stew has only a handful of lines in this two-hour drudge of a film, and Chris Hemsworth, while great at grunting and looking handsome, is not so great at enunciating. The best part of this movie was watching Charlize Theron as the evil queen Ravenna, melting in and out of various shapes while screaming like a banshee. She's a crow! She's a lady again! She's a puddle! This is great! Oh, now we're back in the woods with Bella and Thor. Zzzzzz. Pass. — KW

4. 'Red Dawn'
It's never a good sign when a movie sits on the shelves for a few years (jeez Louise, how many spring/summer/fall previews was this thing included in?). But "Dawn" almost looked like it could benefit from its shelving (due to MGM's financial woes), as stars Chris Hemsworth ("Thor") and Josh Hutcherson ("Hunger Games") blew the hell up amid the delay. But nope. America saw "Dawn" for what it was, another wholly unnecessary remake that not only doesn't improve on the original, but taints our memory of it (not that the '84 Swayze edition was a masterpiece). And don't get us started on the amazingly offensive "ethnicity tweaks" done in post-production. What were you thinking? — KP

oh C'MON. I'm not exactly a fan of Kristen but Snow White was not top 5 in the worst movies of the year, surely. I was kinda bored and Charlize's scenes made me go "...wtf" sometimes but it was pretty enough to look at and I liked Chris as axe!Thor.

also, I remembered lots of people shading Mirror Mirror - liked it myself and thought Lily Collins had a lot of spark - had to check the source to see if it was included in the other 5. Nope. Yay. ;P

I only saw one movie in theatres this year, Beasts of the Southern Wild. I thought about seeing SWATH because of Charlize and the visuals, but I decided not to. Seems like I made the right decision.

The Lucky One was the worst movie I saw in 2012. To this very day, I'm pissed that I spent money on that movie. I wanted to watch American Reunion but my friend wanted to see Zac Efron in an adult role.

Snow White, really? I actually really liked that movie

I actually enjoyed man of a ledge it wasn't amazing but it was a fun action flick.

i really wish i could've liked snow white because the cinematography and costumes (mostly charlize's) were stunning. but kristen stewart was such a vapid charisma suck that it made any part focusing on her annoying. the writing was kind of clunky and bad, too.

That's my boy
Rock of Ages
From Rome with Love or something like that

I was so disappointed with these movies tbh

I didn't like the devil inside. I didn't like the vagina blood splatter and it was too short. but it still gave me nightmares because films about demons freak me the hell out.

This Is 40

So glad I haven't seen most of the movies on this critics list. Didn't hate SWATH that much though.

Worst movie I saw in a theatre this year? TDKR. Thankfully I didn't have to pay for my ticket to that, ha.

By god Playing For Keeps should be #1 and Prometheus should be on the list.

John Carter was fucking amazing and gorgeous, loved it!

Oh hell no, John Carter was awesome.
