Rotten Tomatoes has dished the dirt on some pretty big 'blockbusters'

What is your pick for Worst Movie of the Year?

2017 has been open critical season on Rotten Tomatoes on a whole cohort of crappy blockbusters.

The Emoji Movie has been deemed the worst flick of 2017 so far... but there are some other pretty big names in the top 20 list including The Mummy, Pirates of the Caribbean, Transformers and Fifty Shades of Grey.

Check out the best of the worst of the reviews for 2017 so far…

THE EMOJI MOVIE - 7% (ouch)
This animated comedy takes place in Textopolis, a world inside a smartphone that's inhabited by various emojis. Yep. They really made a movie about this. It does have some cool actors voicing 'emoji's though including James Corden, Anna Faris, Jennifer Coolidge, Patrick Stewart, and Maya Rudolph.

That didn't save it though and even audiences gave this movie a low 46% (and kids are pretty easy to please).

'Abandon all hope, ye who enter here.' - Helen O'Hara/Empire Magazine/Top Critic 

'If you're looking for a substitute viewing experience chock full of bright colors and erratic animation, you're better off staring at a smartphone for an hour and a half.' - Matthew Goodrowe/The Young Folks. 

Hmmmm. I think this emoji pretty much sums up the quality of this movie:

THE MUMMY - 16%
This reboot starring Tom Cruise and Russell Crowe was set to be a massively epic success based on the 90's movies which starred Brendan Fraser.

Unfortunately, critics have totally panned it giving it a total of 16%. Even audiences member weren't fooled giving it a 39%.

'Lacking the campy fun of the franchise's most recent entries and failing to deliver many monster-movie thrills, The Mummy suggests a speedy unraveling for the Dark Universe.'  - Critics Consensus


PIRATES OF THE CARIBBEAN: DEAD MEN TELL NO TALES - 29%
For such a massively successful franchise, this movie got panned by critics, although audiences were still willing to go easy with a 65% rating.

I think it's good that this is the last movie in this exhausted franchise and Johnny Depp should definitely hang up the pirate's hat on this role. 

'Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales proves that neither a change in directors nor an undead Javier Bardem is enough to drain this sinking franchise's murky bilge.' - Critics Consensus.


TRANSFORMERS: THE LAST KNIGHT - 15%
The fifth movie in the Transformers franchise scores a 15% on the Tomatometer with this critics response pretty much wrapping up how everyone feels about this movie.

'Cacophonous, thinly plotted, and boasting state-of-the-art special effects, The Last Knight is pretty much what you'd expect from the fifth installment of the Transformers franchise.' - Critics Consensus.

Even audiences weren't as dazzled by this movie with only 48% giving it the thumbs up. (That's less than half). 


KING ARTHUR: LEGEND OF THE SWORD - 28%
Charlie Hunnam
stars in this remake of a classic medieval tale of King Arthur - buuut - it was not as well received by critics as Warner Bros would have hoped for. 

'King Arthur: Legend of the Sword piles mounds of modern action flash on an age-old tale -- and wipes out much of what made it a classic story in the first place.' - Critics Consensus.

Although, it might still be worth a watch as audiences seemingly loved this one, giving it a 78% rating!! Maybe it's because of David Beckham's cameo role? 
 

 

 


FIFTY SHADES DARKER - 10%
Anastasia (Dakota Johnson) has broken off her relationship with the troubled Christian (Jamie Dornan) to pursue a new career in a Seattle publishing house.
He of course, chases after her, trying to get her back into his red room of pain and basically under his control.

Critics had an absolute field day with this movie and the audience members were split on this one - 50%.

'Lacking enough chemistry, heat, or narrative friction to satisfy, the limp Fifty Shades Darker wants to be kinky but only serves as its own form of punishment.' - Critics Consensus

'Fifty Shades Darker is not darker or better. It's watered down, raincoat-brigade style erotica, even with the spiced-vanilla S&M.'
- Gary M Kramer/Top Critic


'The story of a woman who gives her man better values and a man who gives his woman better clothes, both of them suffering so much for a little bit of nookie'. - David Edelstein/NewYorker/Top Critic
