TMTM Since 2014


Arrogance v. Angst: The Dawn of Ennui

Hello universe!

We have lost our beloved Monster Mother, so we Monster Children must struggle to our feet and shuffle to the feed trough on our own. Don’t ask me what animal metaphor I’m going for there. Some alien pig/lamb-type hybrid.

I have other outlets for writing, but where else can I post things like cruise travel reporting that’s all about towel creatures? Except on my own blog, and why would I want to post anything there?

In an homage to Hard Gabe (hello Gabe’s ghost) and Videogum, I’m going to review the baddest movies since 2014. And by baddest, I don’t mean the sickest. By sickest, I don’t mean the coolest. I mean, terrible. The most terrible movies since 2014. Does terrible still mean terrible these days?

We already know Elizabethtown is the Worst Movie of All Time until 2014. But, you guys, there have been so many terrible recent movies. So I’m making it my job to find The Most Terrible Movie (TMTM™ or TM²™) since 2014.

Like these, followed by Tomatometer / Audience Score:

So, what’s first? Let’s have a quiz! Click on the terrible movie I should watch first.

Guess what? I don’t know how to make a quiz go! So state your choice in the comments. Feel free to add your own suggestions, too.

  • Batman vs Superman or
  • That new Robin Hood

I guess it’s a choice between damaging nostalgia and a horrible, unnecessary remake. Fun!

And I haven’t even talked about how ANGRY I am that NETFLIX CANCELED DAREDEVIL. Or that my beloved Shatner is now on my ShitList, which frankly isn’t that easy to do. So, congrats, you jerk.

    Yay! I love this idea!

    I’ve only seen one of the movies listed above – the first Fifty Shades movie. And it was so awful!

    I’ll vote for Robin Hood. Only because I was raised to believe that Errol Flynn was the true Robin Hood.

      I can’t believe you watched a 50 Shades movie. Though I’ve been tempted myself, just to see how awful it really is.

    I never heard of Brain on Fire, and I will vote for it when the time comes. But today I vote for… Robin Hood! For sure.

    I saw the joyless Kevin Costner one in a theater as a child (technically a child; the human brain is not fully developed until age 26), and even then I knew it was an atrocity. Will this one be better or worse? It looks MUCH worse, and that is AMAZING.

    • taoreader says:

      I don’t know how they made a worse one than the Costner one. I was living in Japan when I saw it, and they had all these cardboard cutouts of him in costume standing in the theatre lobby surrounded by Japanese characters I couldn’t read. When I left the theatre, I pointed at one and laughed. So, so bad. And then the Bryan Adams song kicks in at the end–I hurt myself with that eye roll.

      Brain on Fire is a Netflix Original that I tried to watch once.

    This post fills me with joy! We will not go gentle into that good night!

    I’m torn on the choices here. On the one hand, I saw the Justice League so I should be primed for your review. On the other hand, I don’t remember it so we’re back to square one. I am curious about the Robin Hood movie. The Robin Hood guy looks devoid of charm or charisma. I am very devoted to the ethos of robbing from the rich to give to the poor. My vote goes to Robin Hood!

    • hotspur says:

      If ever there was a time that needed the old Robin Hood ethos, it is now. So why do I suspect this movie is going to emphasize more of an explosions-and-parkour ethos?

    Okay guys, Robin Hood it is. Why am I suddenly nauseated?
