Let’s be honest: 2012 sucked. In fact, and I can say this because I’m secretly a history nerd, 2012 was the worst year since 1934. Who needs a zombie apocalypse when you’ve got 2012?
At the same time, it was also a strangely bland year for the movies. Just as there weren’t any massively brilliant films, there weren’t that many huge disasters. Instead, it was a year that celebrated blandness. Fortunately, for me and my love of making lists, there were still just enough remarkably bad films for me to make out my annual worst of the year list. Yay!
Listed in descending order, here are my picks for the worst of 2012.*
16) The Paperboy
13) The Raven
10) A Thousand Words
9) 96 Minutes
7) Dead Season
5) Rock of Ages
4) Project X
And my pick for both the worst film of 2012 and perhaps one of the worst films ever made…
Tomorrow, I’ll be continuing my look back at 2012 with my picks for the 10 best songs of the year.
