1. I, Frankenstein (2014)

PG-13 | 92 min | Action, Fantasy, Horror

30 Metascore

Frankenstein's creature finds himself caught in an all-out, centuries old war between two immortal clans.

Director: Stuart Beattie | Stars: Aaron Eckhart, Bill Nighy, Miranda Otto, Virginie Le Brun

Votes: 74,776 | Gross: $19.08M

One of the worst movies I've ever had the displeasure of enduring, this is over-serious schlock throughout with an awful script full of stunted dialogue and a contrived plot that is constantly boring.

2. Annabelle (I) (2014)

R | 99 min | Horror, Mystery, Thriller

37 Metascore

A couple begins to experience terrifying supernatural occurrences involving a vintage doll shortly after their home is invaded by satanic cultists.

Director: John R. Leonetti | Stars: Ward Horton, Annabelle Wallis, Alfre Woodard, Tony Amendola

Votes: 121,259 | Gross: $84.27M

Representative of the worst that modern horror has to offer.

3. Lucy (I) (2014)

R | 89 min | Action, Sci-Fi, Thriller

61 Metascore

A woman, accidentally caught in a dark deal, turns the tables on her captors and transforms into a merciless warrior evolved beyond human logic.

Director: Luc Besson | Stars: Scarlett Johansson, Morgan Freeman, Min-sik Choi, Amr Waked

Votes: 401,908 | Gross: $126.66M

This movie made no sense, and the director clearly thought he was making some kind of statement about evolution but the flick ended up feeling highly pretentious. The central conceit is entirely implausible, it gets more and more absurd as the picture goes on, leading to a cringe-enducing experience that culminates in the central character using all of her brain power to turn into... a USB stick! Come on.

4. Under the Skin (I) (2013)

R | 108 min | Drama, Horror, Sci-Fi

78 Metascore

A mysterious young woman seduces lonely men in the evening hours in Scotland. However, events lead her to begin a process of self-discovery.

Director: Jonathan Glazer | Stars: Scarlett Johansson, Jeremy McWilliams, Lynsey Taylor Mackay, Dougie McConnell

Votes: 112,790 | Gross: $2.61M

Overly long and genuinely boring, this well-made but lifeless drama about an alien learning of humanity is unique but uninteresting; I didn't think the deeper message was prominent enough and I just wasn't entertained overall.

5. Jersey Boys (2014)

R | 134 min | Biography, Drama, Music

54 Metascore

The story of four young men from the wrong side of the tracks in New Jersey who came together to form the iconic 1960s rock group The Four Seasons.

Director: Clint Eastwood | Stars: John Lloyd Young, Erich Bergen, Michael Lomenda, Vincent Piazza

Votes: 30,344 | Gross: $47.03M

It just glosses over the events with a Hollywood sheen that wears thin fast.

6. Dumb and Dumber To (2014)

PG-13 | 109 min | Adventure, Comedy

36 Metascore

20 years since their first adventure, Lloyd and Harry go on a road trip to find Harry's newly discovered daughter, who was given up for adoption.

Directors: Bobby Farrelly, Peter Farrelly | Stars: Jim Carrey, Jeff Daniels, Rob Riggle, Laurie Holden

Votes: 118,256 | Gross: $86.21M

Almost no laughs, a weak plot, a cast of uninspired characters and poor direction make this belated sequel one we could have all done without.

7. Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles (2014)

PG-13 | 101 min | Action, Adventure, Comedy

31 Metascore

When a kingpin threatens New York City, a group of mutated turtle warriors must emerge from the shadows to protect their home.

Director: Jonathan Liebesman | Stars: Megan Fox, Will Arnett, William Fichtner, Noel Fisher

Votes: 191,922 | Gross: $191.20M

Another remake that doesn't hold a candle to the original, this is a mess structurally and features too little time on the eponymous turtles. The action is overly shaky with a reliance of CGI and the characters are all under-cooked and dull.

8. Transformers: Age of Extinction (2014)

PG-13 | 165 min | Action, Adventure, Sci-Fi

32 Metascore

When humanity allies with a bounty hunter in pursuit of Optimus Prime, the Autobots turn to a mechanic and his family for help.

Director: Michael Bay | Stars: Mark Wahlberg, Nicola Peltz, Jack Reynor, Stanley Tucci

Votes: 282,754 | Gross: $245.44M

9. Kill Me Three Times (2014)

R | 90 min | Action, Comedy, Crime

30 Metascore

Professional hit-man Charlie Wolfe finds himself in three tales of murder, blackmail and revenge after a botched contract assignment.

Director: Kriv Stenders | Stars: Simon Pegg, Teresa Palmer, Alice Braga, Luke Hemsworth

Votes: 18,183 | Gross: $0.02M

Some satisfaction arises in its third-act but, sadly, it's short-lived.

10. The Equalizer (2014)

R | 132 min | Action, Crime, Thriller

57 Metascore

A man believes he has put his mysterious past behind him and has dedicated himself to beginning a new, quiet life. But when he meets a young girl under the control of ultra-violent Russian gangsters, he can't stand idly by - he has to help her.

Director: Antoine Fuqua | Stars: Denzel Washington, Marton Csokas, Chloë Grace Moretz, David Harbour

Votes: 301,102 | Gross: $101.53M

At its best when it isn't trying to be 'cool'; at its worst when it is.
