Variety Names the Worst Movies of 2016

Dec 15, 2016  •  Post A Comment

A new report by Variety selects 10 movies to be “honored” as the worst of the year, with five of the films picked by critic Owen Gleiberman and five by Peter Debruge.

High on Gleiberman’s list are “Nina,” where the casting of Zoe Saldana as Nina Simone was just one of a number of problems, and the “Ben-Hur” remake, which suffers from, among other things, “the casting of limp noodle Jack Huston in the role made legendary by the studly Charlton Heston.”

Debruge’s least favorites include the Matthew McConaughey melodrama “The Sea of Trees,” about the Aokigahara forest in Japan, which is notorious as a place for people to commit suicide, and “The Girl on the Train,” where Debruge says director Tate Taylor “botches the assignment every which way he can.”
