There were several disappointments in the cinema world in 2018. Since we already have the John Carter Memorial Award, this disappointment is not considered monetary. This is a disappointment in quality.
Previous Winners: In the Heart of the Sea, The Snowman, Amazing spider-man 2, After Earth, Dark Knight Rises, Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter, Batman v. Superman
Runners-Up: I was so looking forward to Widows. Unfortunately, I only liked the film and I found it pretty disappointing. I loved the original and I like Shane Black a lot, so when The Predator was released, it was nowhere near what I had hoped. Even Oprah couldn’t save A Wrinkle in Time from disappointing. The Cloverfield Paradox had a remarkable promotion with the trailer during the Super Bowl and I had so much excitement to watch the Netflix show after the game was over. Then I saw it. Then, I was so excited about the new version of Halloween with Jamie Lee Curtis. but it was, at best, passable and I was so disappointed with that. The second half of Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom really wasted what had been started. Sicario: Day of the Soldado was pretty dull and not as good as the first one, which I had rewatched and liked more the second time. And… Solo: A Star Wars Story. Nuff said.
The Spider-Man 3 Disappointment of the Year goes to….
I know a lot of people like this move, but I was so excited about this film and I found it terribly disappointing. The film did not understand the Winnie the Pooh story and took away the imagination in the story. The second half of the movie is as bad as any this year. Ewan McGregor is fine as an adult Christopher Robin, but this film basically turned into a remake of Hook. I loved Pooh and this was such a letdown.
