Here are the worst of the worst for 2020: the Batman & Robins!
The F-You Award: COVID-19. This goes without saying.
Worst Movie of the Year: You have to wait and see on the Year End List. However, a hint, it is one of the worst of all-time.
Worst Actor: Nick Stahl (The Murder of Nicole Brown Simpson). He may have been the standout in this movie. That is not saying much.
Worst Actress: Mena Suvari (The Murder of Nicole Brown Simpson). Her performance was not quite as obscene as the film.
Worst CGI: Roald Dahl’s The Witches. The CGI here was disappointing and it surpassed the badness of the dog from Call of the Wild, which was a runner-up.
Worst Sequel: Brahms: The Boy II. A sequel that was terrible and had zero reason to have been made. The first Boy move was okay, but this one took the good parts of that one and tossed it out the window.
Worst Superhero Movie: Project Power. This was not terrible, but there were limited number of superhero movies this year and I did not want to give this to Wonder Woman 1984.
Worst Director: Daniel Farrands (The Murder of Nicole Brown Simpson). Amateurish.
My Favorite Rotten Movie (Low Score on Rotten Tomatoes): The New Mutants. Lots of people disliked this long-delayed movie, but I found it decent. Perhaps I am more willing to give this a break because of my background.
Worst Movie I did not see: Songbird. At 11% on Rotten Tomatoes, it is low. As the first major film involving COVID, it most likely is a little too tone deaf.
Cashing a Paycheck: Harrison Ford (Call of the Wild). Harrison was good in the movie. The CGI dog was a horrid distraction.
Book was Better: Artemis Fowl. Although I have never read the book, it would have to be better than this Disney + flopper.
Worst Reboot/Remake: Dolittle. The sad “adventure” starring Robert Downey Jr and his weird accent. He was Tony Stark once. Now he is pulling items out of a dragon’s anus.
Most Successful Bad Movie: Spencer Confidential. This Netflix series was successful for the streamer, but it was just God awful.
Worst Movie Based on TV Show: Blumhouse’s Fantasy Island. Michael Pena as Mr. Rourke was the fisr mistake, but far from the only ones in this terrible re-imagining of the class TV show.
Worst Performance from an Oscar winner: Judi Dench (Artemis Fowl). She was Commander Root, head of the fairies. Coming on the heels of Old Deuteronomy in Cats, this was maybe another step down.
Worst Wig of the Year: Glenn Close (Hillbilly Elegy). It was a horrible distraction the entire time.
