1. I Am Legend (2007)
2. Battleship (2012)
To be honest, what could you expect from a movie that is actually based on a simple pen and pencil game? Then again “Pirates of the Caribbean” is based on a dark ride and look how well that turned out. But “Battleship” had no Johnny Depp to make up for the gaping holes in a story that actually didn’t even make sense.
3. Reign Of Fire (2002)
4. Prometheus (2012)
5. Resident Evil: Extinction (2007)
6. Signs (2002)
7. Indiana Jones & The Kingdom of the Crystal Skull (2008)
8. Aeon Flux (2005)
This was one of the movies where I actually left the cinema, about 30 minutes into the movie. I’m still surprised I even made it THAT long – because apart from cool special effects and tons of martial art, there isn’t really anything happening. And I know for fact, I once made it through the whole movie. Well, with a few naps in between.
9. Star Wars Episode II: Attack of the Clones (2002)
I am a huge Star Wars fan, but this one is – in my opinion – the absolute worst of it. There is horrible acting – I mean Hayden Christensen and Natalie Portman have absolutely NO chemistry whatsoever and they were dating at the time – gaping story holes and well, a lot of boredom. While in Episode I you could at least laugh at Jar-Jar, in Episode II nothing kept you from falling asleep.
10. War of the Worlds (2005)
I don’t know if it’s just me, but it seems that Tom Cruise new mission since “Minority Report” (2002) is to only play lead roles in really bad science fiction movies. The first in that row was “War Of The Worlds” which started quite promising but then the aliens went from all-powerful to damn stupid – as did the rest of the story. Then came:
11. Oblivion (2013)
This movie actually is nothing more than a patchwork rug from a lot of other famous science fiction-movies. From the beginning you start asking yourself: Didn’t I see that one before? Yes, you did. In “Moon” (2009), “Solaris” (2002), “2001: A Space Odyssey” (1968) or “The Matrix” (1999) – among others. And the best part is the ending – because it’s actually the EXACT same one as in “Independence Day” (1996).
12. Matrix Reloaded (2003)
“The Matrix“ in 1999 was absolutely mind-blowing – it was THE movie that everybody had to see and never quite got over. And then, four years later “Matrix Reloaded” happened and managed to completely ruin the magic. Morpheus went from superior and wise to ridiculous, Neo developed a god complex and well, there was not much of a story. At least the Wachowski-brothers were consistent and really got things into a complete mess with “Matrix Revolutions” that was released the same year.
