1. I, Frankenstein (2014)
PG-13 | 92 min | Action, Fantasy, Horror
Frankenstein's creature finds himself caught in an all-out, centuries old war between two immortal clans.
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
A couple begins to experience terrifying supernatural occurrences involving a vintage doll shortly after their home is invaded by satanic cultists.
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
A woman, accidentally caught in a dark deal, turns the tables on her captors and transforms into a merciless warrior evolved beyond human logic.
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
A mysterious young woman seduces lonely men in the evening hours in Scotland. However, events lead her to begin a process of self-discovery.
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
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.
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
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.
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
When a kingpin threatens New York City, a group of mutated turtle warriors must emerge from the shadows to protect their home.
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
When humanity allies with a bounty hunter in pursuit of Optimus Prime, the Autobots turn to a mechanic and his family for help.
Votes: 282,754 | Gross: $245.44M
9. Kill Me Three Times (2014)
R | 90 min | Action, Comedy, Crime
Professional hit-man Charlie Wolfe finds himself in three tales of murder, blackmail and revenge after a botched contract assignment.
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
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.
Votes: 301,102 | Gross: $101.53M
At its best when it isn't trying to be 'cool'; at its worst when it is.
