  1. Loool. I agree. Jack and Jill should be on the list. Battleship too. Oh,and did I mention Gone? In fact there are so many

  2. I don’t think i can remember my worst movie of all time but my worst movies of 2012 were Total recall – The absolute worst, LOL and Rock of ages. What was going on in Rock of Ages? (˘̩̩_˘̩̩̩ƪ) The only bit i could stand was catherine zeta-jones’ performance of Hit me with your best shot.

  3. Errr… Breaking dawn 1 has got to be one of the worst movies I’ve seen, while the previous superman has got to be one of the worst movies I HAVEN’T seen…lol

  4. I so agree… I was a huge fan of the resident evil franchise till retribution! Michelle rodriguez was wasted! And that guy that the laser destroyed in part1 how, as in, how!!! Did that guy come back? Chei!
    Apart from the fact that green lantern should have been black, the CGI was hurting to the eyes! Talk about Sucker punch! You know a film is bad when about 4months after its release, it ends up being shown in MM2! Not just shown but over repeated!!! And for once we never got to see “her” dance! Omase ooo…
    Wrong turn4, Prometheus, race to witch mountain, (cant think of all dem crap movies) should have made this list too!
    LoL @nollywood sha… But those guys don they try ooo… With movies like: i’ll take my chances. Dr. Bello. Irapada. The narrow path. Last flight to abuja. I think we’re developing greatly. Sorry if i didn’t add the figurine! The only person i loved in the movie was Omoni oboli! Every other person was trashy&kunle afolayan should pls stick to directing! Gosh…

    • I am sorry bro but please please and please I cannot agree with Last flight to Abuja. It is the worst movie I saw in 2012. We are the ones making nollywood directors give us crap. When they make a film and you say they tried sha, when will they stop trying sha!!!? That movie was painful to the eyes and harmful to the mind. The CGI was so 1960. You dont believe me? Go and search some hollywood classics released in that decade, you will see.

    • And about retribution, Sigh…all is well. We just dey abuse nollywood, Hollywood sef get their own big wahala. Some scripts shouldn’t even get to the executive producer’s table

  5. C’mon guys..how is sucker punch a bad movie? Its fuckin fantasy..it has elements of mind control and some other weird stuff..its a very awesome movie. Shouldn’t be on that list..
