Probably The Worst Movies I've Ever Seen - Shreya Sachdev

Hi everyone! I hope you’re all having a nice day. For today’s blog post, I thought I would talk about some of the worst movies that have ever been created and that I’ve ever watched. As some of you might know, I posted a blog post titled “My Favorite Movies” a couple of weeks ago, and I also wrote up a blog post titled “Movies That Make Me Cry The Most” just a few days ago. Since film and television is such a big part of my website, I thought that I should continue to post more on the topics of movies and talk about the reasons for my own personal liking towards certain movies and television shows. I’m planning on writing another blog post titled “Movies That Make Me Laugh The Most” because I thought that would be a really fun post to write, but for now I’m going to be talking about the worst movies I have ever watched. I was a little hesitant to post this because I know that it is offending the producers and the directors who made these films, but I suppose all producers and directors are used to people telling them that their movies suck since that’s just how the entertainment industry works. I’m genuinely not trying to make any of the producers or directors feel bad about this post. I mean, I don’t think that I even have the right to because I’m an aspiring screenwriter and I’d be lucky if even one of my screenplays got made into a film. The people who have made the movies I’m going to be talking about have come a lot further than I have and the fact that they’ve been able to create a movie, regardless of the fact that it’s good or bad, means that they’re one step closer to making it big in this industry. I also want to clarify that for the purpose of this blog post, I’m only going to be talking about movies that are pretty well known and that people are familiar with. Make sure to let me know what the worst movies you’ve ever seen are, and without further ado, let’s get started!

  1. Exam (2009): Exam is a 2009 thriller movie directed by Stuart Hazeldine. Exam is about a group of people who are competing for a prestigious job and have to take an exam in order to qualify for the job. When the invigilator leaves the room, the candidates come to find that there are no questions on the exam paper. Therefore, the entire story revolves around how these candidates communicate with each other in order to figure out what the exam question really is. You know, when I read the synopsis of this movie I thought it was really interesting, but then I watched the movie and realized that this is a horrible film. First of all, the way that these candidates talk to each other is completely unrealistic and the acting is terrible. Secondly, at one point this movie turns into those cliche films where the characters begin to turn on each other and start blackmailing each other. Lastly, the end of the movie is so fucking stupid. At the end of the movie, it turns out that the question that the candidates needed to answer was something stupid that the invigilator had asked them before the test even begun, and the whole point of the exam was to figure out who could realize what the question was. Such a stupid movie and I wish I hadn’t wasted my time watching it.

  2. Piranha 3DD (2012): Piranha 3DD is a 2010 thriller film directed by Alexandre Aja. Piranha 3DD is about a swarm of ancient piranhas that are released after an earthquake splits a lake floor. A group of strangers come together to stop themselves from becoming the victims of these deadly predators. I remember watching this movie when I was twelve or thirteen years old and absolutely hating it. This movie isn’t even about how strangers come together to get rid of the piranhas, but it’s got more to do with characters just getting killed by the piranhas and then having sex with each other in order to feel better. Some of the scenes are also just really disgusting to watch and honestly it was very traumatizing for me to watch this as an innocent twelve year old, but I’m sure that even if I watched this movie now I would still hate it.

  3. The Purge (2013): The Purge is a 2013 horror film directed by James DeMonaco. The Purge is about a dystopian society in which there is one night that in which everyone in the country is allowed to murder each other and basically commit all kinds of crime that would usually be illegal. The government allows this night because they believe it’s a great way for citizens to be able to have one night in which they can express all their anger and rage without getting caught. During this night, there is one wealthy family that hopes to stay safe with their security system. However, they soon find themselves keeping a black man safe from people who plan on killing him. So, I think that the entire Purge trilogy is horrific, but the worst movie in this trilogy is definitely the first movie. In all honestly, this movie is just filled wth dumbass characters who make stupid decisions and then are shocked by the consequences of their actions. Moreover, many of the action scenes are filmed in complete darkness and therefore it’s extremely difficult to see and understand what is happening. Overall, it’s just a very bad film.

  4. Fifty Shades of Gray (2015): Fifty Shades of Grey is a 2015 drama and romance film directed by Sam Taylor-Johnson and stars Dakota Johnson and Jamie Dornan. Lol I’m not going to tell you guys what this movie is about because we all obviously know what this movie is about and I don’t know how to explain this movie without sounding awkward. However, I will say that this movie consists of terrible acting and two main characters that have absolutely no chemistry. On top of that, the character of Anastasia Steele (played by Dakota Johnson) is the most complicated and stupidest fictional character to have ever been created. Throughout the movie, it’s clear that she likes BDSM and then at the end of the movie, Christian (played by Jamie Dornan) punishes her and she gets angry with him and tells him that he will never do that to her again, even though that’s exactly what he’s been doing to her the entire movie. The worst movie of the trilogy is probably the first film, even though they’re all pretty bad. All I can say is that I’m glad this trilogy is over.

  5. Kidnap (2017): Kidnap is a 2017 thriller movie directed by Luis Prieto and stars Halle Berry. Kidnap is about a mother who desperately tries to find her child after she realizes that he has been kidnapped in the park. Honestly, when I first heard of this movie I thought it was going to be really interesting because for so many years we’ve seen movies that are based around a daughter being kidnapped and then a father trying to save her, but now it’s a son being kidnapped and a mother trying to save the son. Unfortunately, this movie was terrible. I mean, this wasn’t even a movie. It just consisted of action scene after action scene with absolutely no dialogue or plot. On top of that, there were too many twists that just didn’t add up to what actually happened during the kidnapping. This movie had a lot of promise, but it turned out to be just like the rest of the movies we talked above. The only difference would be that Halle Berry was a very good actor in this movie, but the storyline of this movie let her down.
