Here Are the "Worst" Movies of 2016

Apocalypto Conquers All

I was truly shocked to see Mel Gibson's Apocalypto come in number one at the box office this weekend, finally unseating Happy Feet. There had been comparatively little buzz about the movie besides the concern over its ruthless violence, and it also got some pretty bad reviews. But I guess a little controversy does a movie good: Apocalypto racked up $14.1 million on its opening weekend, just beating out The Holiday, which took in $13.5 million.

Still, I can't imagine being able to watch this movie without being preoccupied by all of the sordid Mel Gibson news lately, which is why I appreciate this spoof on the Apocalypto trailer that aired on "Saturday Night Live" this weekend.

The movie is horrible. I saw it. It was a cross between Lethal Weapon campyiness, the seriousness of Passion of the Christ, and the gore of a crappy horror movie. I enjoy blood and guts in a movie - when it is used as part of the story. Here is used it because he could. It just seemed very over the top and forced. There were little jokes and puns in the movie. I thought they took away from the film. It was a real crap movie overall. Do not go see it, do not bother to rent it, if it comes on tv and you have no energy to change the channel then muster up some strength because it is still not worth seeing.
