10+ Of The Worst Movies Released In 2020

I think that years from now, we'll refer to 2020 simply as 'The Year That Wasn't.' In keeping with the spirit of this trainwreck of a year, there have been some awfully terrible films.

So as we wind down what has unquestionably been the worst year of the decade, I thought it might be fun to look back at 10+ of the worst movies released in 2020.


On paper, Downhill should have been a home run. I mean, Will Ferrell and Julia Louis-Dreyfuss in the same movie together? To say that my hopes were high would be the understatement of the century.

Regretfully, the only funny thing about Downhill is how ironically unfunny it is.


Sadly, Bloodshot never really had much of a chance. Not only was Vin Diesel was all wrong for the role of Ray Garrison, but the film also sorely lacks any semblance of direction.

Which is a shame, because Bloodshot is one heck of a comic book.

*Spenser Confidential*.

Spenser Confidential is a slap in the face to the entire buddy/cop genre. It's clumsily pieced together, and totally over-the-top — almost to the point of being satirical.

I'm a Mark Wahlberg fan, so this one was disappointing, to say the least.

*Birds Of Prey*.

I have to give credit where credit is due: Margot Robbie fantastic in Birds of Prey. The failings of the film are not her own.

But sadly, even her brilliant performance as Harley Quinn wasn't enough to get this quagmire of a movie back on track.

*The Tax Collector*.

I love David Ayer and I've always been a bit of a Shia LaBeouf truther if I'm being honest.

Unfortunately, the best thing about The Tax Collector is the gigantic tattoo that LaBeouf inked on his chest

*Sonic The Hedgehog*.

From the very first still-shot release of Sonic, I knew that we were headed for trouble. And while the redesigns did help (a little) it wasn't enough to rescue SEGA's classic character from a complete and utter box office bomb.


Dolittle is an appropriate title for the film because it literally did nothing to entice an audience to want to watch it.

It frightens me to think that young viewers are going to grow up with this image of Dr. Dolittle. Bring back Eddie Murphy!

*The Call Of The Wild*.

How is it possible to make a movie about arguably the most famous dog in the history of literature and not use an actual dog for even a single scene?

The CGI in Call of the Wild is not only divisive, it's borderline unforgivable.

*The Last Days Of American Crime*.

If you haven't read Rick Remender's dystopian neo-noir crime drama of the same name, I highly recommend that you add it to your 'to read' list.

But as far as the film version that was released on Netflix earlier this year is concerned, best to skip it entirely.

*Hubie Halloween*.

There's nobody on this planet who wanted Hubie Halloween to be a success more than me. Sadly, it wasn't meant to be.

Sandler's latest plot feels half-baked to the point of being raw and undercooked. To be blunt, Hubie is redundant and borderline annoying.

*My Spy*.

Did you ever watch any of Hulk Hogan's films from the '90s? You know, Mr. Nanny or maybe Thunder in Paradise?

That's the exact kind of vibe that My Spy gives off. Dave Bautista has potential, we just never get to see it.

*The Grudge*.

It's almost as if a group of people got together in a writing room and said "I know! Let's highlight everything that made The Grudge a terrifying horror film, to begin with, and do the exact opposite."

I never walk away from a movie but my gosh was I close this time.

*The Witches*.

If you are someone who holds the original '90s version of The Witches in high regard, do yourself a favor and avoid this travesty of a film at all costs.

Anne Hathaway does a severe disservice to the legacy of Anjelica Huston with this one. And that's just the tip of the iceberg.


The only thing more upsetting than Mulan stripping everything from the original animated feature was when Disney tried charging Disney + subscribers $29.99 to watch it.

That's what you call trying to take two bites from the same rotten apple.


When the news first broke that Tom Hardy would be playing Al Capone, I was thrilled. But instead of highlighting the rise and fall of Chicago's most infamous gangster, Capone instead reduces its principal character to a stark-raving geriatric who can't even control his own bowels.

This was the biggest let down of the year — bar none.
