Top Ten Worst films of 2013


 10- Inside Llewnyn Davis

For my controversial pick of the year, and probably making lot of people stop reading once I say this, it’s Inside Llewnyn davis

I cannot wrap my head around why this hit so many top best lists, I just can’t, especially high numbers like it did,

They say it depicts the harshness of life and a tragic character, and I say no, Search For Happiness did that and its one of my favorite films, this film shows you a unlikable character that cant make a single good decision in his life, that’s not reality its damn near comedic exaggeration. He is not a interesting guy, and not that tragic, lot people will say but hes homeless, and I’m like no he’s not, he never once spends a night in anywhere uncomfortable he never goes hungry and he constantly seems to be getting jobs to live with , this movie is pointless it has little to no moral and it ends with a joke not exactly the pinnacle of drama, nothing about this movie worked for me until I knew people were gonna love it, its choice of a subculture like folk, its really well done cinematography I knew this was a film people would call an artistic accomplishment or something like that well here on pure news we do just what the name implies we given you pure truth and pure opinions so take from that what you will.


9-  A Good day to Die Hard

It took one of the most iconic action movie franchises and turned into a cheap run of the mill action film with plenty of explosions and invincible heroes, well you get the slow clap of shame for that one movie good freaking job, at least Bruce Willis salvaged it from complete disaster but come on why don’t you go remake Romeo and Juliet with vampires while your at it? you can turn anything into cliche if you don’t try at all, whats next a robo..cop…remake……right…moving on.


8 – Paranoia

Here’s a movie that I actually didn’t review but my colleague who did said all that needed to be said about this film. there’s few things that annoy me more than a wasted opportunity and with its star power and premise, paranoia definitely fits that category, you got Harrison ford and Gary Oldman and a premise about paranoia and media control and the fanaticism and competitive nature of companies and you turn it into this, put a boring actor as your main lead and remove all instances of philosophy or interesting dilemmas and then you get a bore fest like this, well freaking done paranoia.


 7 – Man Of Steel

Goddamn this film, I’m gonna do something I don’t usually do and give some spoilers so if you don’t want to see them just skip to the next number and I’ll say here that I regret the score I gave this film more than any other score on this site.

it comes down to this (spoiler) Superman commits genocide!!! bloody freaking genocide, he is not smart not clever doesn’t sacrifice himself for others and probably kills more people than the villains and he commits genocide on his entire freaking race, don’t believe me go see for yourself .when superman takes it upon himself to destroy his sleeping race, to wipe out his own species just because and I quote!! “They had their chance” That is not superman!! That is bull crap and poor writing and stupidity all around screw this film, Superman is not the boy-scout everyone who doesn’t read superman thinks he is, he is bad ass and freaking smart okay, and nothing and I mean nothing like this film makes him out to be, i dread superman vs batman and i slap myself in the face for giving it a positive score because of effects and fight scenes, what the hell was I thinking and what the hell where the people who made this film thinking.


 6 – Gravity 

Turning on the rage switch fast and hard.

Gravity, so technically another controversial pick, if you didn’t stop reading at number 10 you probably will now, but I cant help it, I hate this film, I hate it, I wasted an iMax ticket on it, okay let me tell you something I said when I saw Avatar, Visuals don’t make a film, you need at least a average story, for god’s sake its not that hard, but Felix you moron this is a film for effects and visuals, well then I say , don’t make a film, make a 50 minute feature with little to no story to show off today’s technology, not this, not this, this film is boring, at times racist, predictable, poorly and lazily written, makes 90 minutes feel like 120 minutes, wastes good actors, and worst of all, wastes a completely fine story line, this film wanted to have a story about rebirth, it really did and there’s symbology to prove it, but it wasn’t done well at all, It was poorly written so the motivation wasn’t there, important things for characters are not mentioned well enough or focused on enough to give some actual emotion to this film, goddammit make a action film if you dint want emotion, make Armageddon that would show off some special effects and recreate the feeling of being in space, which yes looked really cool and the destruction while overused was good and the perspectives the camera shots the continuous shots, all fine and good but it lacked anything resembling impact or feeling, I was looking down at the earth and I dint feel anything no sense of wonder no sense of marvel and why ? because the characters dint feel it, because these filmmakers think its more important to show you pretty things than to give you a reason to find them pretty, its not the worst Sci Fi(if you can even call it that, pretty much all of this stuff exists, but who am I to argue with imdb?) movie I’ve seen, not even the worst of the year, and some might just find it okay, or acceptable, and of course there are those who find it a masterpiece and its being nominated for film of the year, well for once I don’t care, I’m here to tell you that if you haven’t seen it, it doesn’t live up to the hype, but who knows most people don’t agree with me so maybe you wont either, I just urge you to not waste your money because something looks nice okay, I hate this film, moving on.


5- Elysium

At number 5 Another top contender for worst Sci Fi film of the year.

What do I even say about this? How can anyone take it seriously? How is this suppose to be dramatic…Okay first of all what kills this film? The Villain, my god the Villain, this freaking guy is so detestable so goddamn revoltingly bad that its sad really, in a good villain your angry at the villain and in a bad villain like this Krueger, your angry at the people who wrote him, this guy is a joke to villains and to characters in general, okay first of all that rocket launcher that shoots into space is stupid and impossible anyway you think it, even if its plausible or if you want to give some explanation for it, shut up, look at whats happening on screen, this is the equivalent of having a man in front of you and you call a guy from across the world to hit a baseball so hard that it flies halfway across the world and takes his head off, Krueger was not likable or bad ass like the movie wanted you to think, he was just this douche bag walking around with a freaking katana…A katana? Really…Really? What the hell are you doing film, you are not cyberpunk, and if you want to be cyberpunk than just freaking be cyberpunk, its so stupid that he wields a Sci Fi looking katana where did he get that ? he probably had it custom made online along with…exploding shuriken ? Really…It’s in the film I swear its like 5 seconds but its there, shuriken…Sigh I don’t need to explain why this is stupid do I? So the villain is horrible but what makes the film make the list besides him ? well its more than a little cheesy and cliche, honestly i really did like the ending and the Matt Damon character, this film had potential and it wasted it, in case you haven’t been able to tell already. I hate wasted potential, it just falls short on nearly everything it tries to do and the idea of Elysium itself, is just stupid, rich french people that are evil ? i guess…just rich so douche bags obviously right ? Not like they have family’s and all that…so they left earth because it was to dirty, and they made something called a medic deck, which heals anything, anything, and they keep it for themselves and are surprised when people try to break in ? Are you retarded? package that thing sell it for as much as you want and you have enough money to build 50 Elysiums’s, someone wake up the writers please…


4 – Hansel and Gretel: Witch Hunters

We have a idea dead from the start.

Where did this genre come from? Why is it here, I don’t know i just hate it, why don’t you make a Dark Tarzan while your at it? You made Snow White, Snow freaking White and the thing is all of this films aren’t that bad, they are just okay, but it’s the idea that counts, I just don’t like it its perverse even, Classic story’s are messed up I give you that, but they are messed up in their own way there’s a difference you know from the subtext of rape in red riding hood to the gruesome deaths, to having Hansel and Gretel wielding guns shooting down witches and giving witty banter…It’s just..Why ? Because it’s cool no its not, you don’t see people giving Teletubies The Terminator jacket and a shotgun, no one wants to see Tintin cut someones throat in war, no one wanted to see snow white turned into a medieval war film with Kristen freaking Stewart, you know what other movie this director made ? Død snø, a Nazi zombie movie look if you wanna do it right, try Wolf Among Us or something, I’ve heard that’s great, the Once Upon a Time series doesn’t look horrible from the trailers, thought it very well might be, just stop making these films, please, and Hawkeye, get another job man, this is bellow you.


3- Iron Man 3

Entering the unholy trinity at number 3.

We have the unavoidable, Iron Man 3.

I’m done talking about this film okay I really am, our review was very under the influence of watching the film and just getting all that hype crushed so its not our best, and very possibly one of our worst, but the points remain, there’s lot of things wrong with this film and most of it surprisingly comes down to Shane Black, It screams Shane Black when it should scream marvel, not to mention Shane Black’s horrible responses to fans upon complaining about the film and I’ll quote ”  ”Yeah Mr.Shane Black we are doing just that, and it is stupid, that’s why marvel is completely backpedaling the story with the short All hail the king right? Bravo, bra freaking made a boring action film with more plot holes than Christmas references. I’m not saying keeping Tony vulnerable was a bad idea, I’m not saying showing his human side was a bad idea, I’m saying you fumbled it, all of the people in this film couldn’t get up and go”this is really stupid guys” about halfway thorough the film its like the stupid switch is turned on, because so many bad things happen so fast,first of all tony emotional struggle and panic attacks are out the window turned into a joke and never mentioned again, “Marvel can rein me in all they want, but I’m not going to go to Marvel and say, ‘How can I make your hero less realistic and more heroic so it suits Disney’s needs?’- Shane Black ,so what about  the suit plot holes why he just dint get another suit once Jarvis was online or made them set up watch for the terrorist coming to his house and all, or why he insisted on using the prototype that is probably the worst stupid he ever made, the stupids fall apart like butter and they said its because of Extremis big bloody temperature, if your so insistent on realism you should have tony stark burn to death from being that close to 30000 degrees Celsius or whatever it was, here have another nitpick, iron patriot has this big gun on his back that he never shoots, never even fights in the film besides when a terrorist takes over the suit, what a goddamn joke, but really every time I talk about this film I feel tired and stupid, everyone already said all that’s bad about it, if you still like it well more power to you, I’ll stick with Thor 2 and you stick with this, lets all be happy.

Here’s a  movie that doesn’t seem to want us to be happy.


2- After Earth

Welcome to the worst Sci Fi film of the year and I have a name for you, one name…M.Night Shyamalan.

It’s After Earth, you know its sad, when in order to make a movie marketable everyone in the marketing department agrees to that your name off every single cover, I think that’s the time you need to rethink your life,This guy, what can i say about this guy, he makes horrible movies and he keeps on doing them, unlikable characters, boring, just badly written, stupid plot elements, he made Devil okay, freaking devil, and you expect him to make a good Sci Fi movie, no of course he cant, he just cant, how do you take will smith one of the most charismatic actors I know and turn him into this ? Well M.Night Shyamalan, he took Mark Walhberg and turned him into The Happening dint he ? This film has made one of our editors quit less than halfway thorough it, that is not that common at all, It’s some feat its accomplished, all I can say to Shyamalan is, start making hilariously bad movies again, and stop ruining two good actors, Jayden probably got his career smashed because of this, not that many people will feel sorry for him after this performance but how can you blame the actor with Shyamalan in command ? i just don’t know, worst than gravity because gravity was at least visually interesting, worst than Elyisum because Elysium at least had one good character and a decent ending, have a award for worst Sci Fi movie of the year and shyamalan whatever genre you choose to get next let  me know so i can start carving your name on the side of that worst film of the year trophy as well.


 1- Pain and Gain

And at long last, we have arrived at the unholy crown jewel of 2014, there was no other choice when I thought about it.

Michael god damn bay, I dint want to give you this much attention.

I don’t wanna talk about this film,I don’t wanna think about it, I don’t even want to acknowledge it’s existence, and every goddamn time someone says they like it I cant help but give this death stare of absolute dread, every time I think about it it gets worse and worse, and the score gets lower in my head, its worthless, it’s less than worthless its vile diseased piece of everything that’s wrong and sick about human decadence, everything someone says they need to see it to see how bad it is it i say and continue to say no, for gods sake don’t see this film,I know that makes you want to see this but please save your brain from having to holster these memories, you have more important things to put in there, not pain and gain, I thank Dwayne the rock Johnson for helping me go thorough this film and i hope he makes some better career choices down the line because Dwayne Johnson as a future in comedy if he plays his cards right, joining Michael Bay was not a good move, please rethink it, read our review if you want to know the plot or more details , I cant bring myself to talk about it anymore, this movie makes so many people spin in their graves that its probably caused a thousand earthquakes already, i never wanted to join the Michael Bay hate bandwagon, to me he just made shitty transformers films and i could live with that, now…its personal, see you in the teenage mutant…alien ninja turtles Mr.Bay your day of reckoning is soon upon us.


So that’s it, all said and done,almost a year we have spent with you guys, living and learning,a lot of learning, we have our One Year Anniversary in March, we have had our ups and downs haven’t we well for all of you readers out there, I hope you had a great new years and that 2014 treats us all well, we may seem like we are gone sometimes and reviews may fall thorough the cracks, but we will never stop bringing you the Pure News.

    Worst list Ever !

    I think the Codex that supposedly means he’s “committed genocide” with means that he holds a bunch of genetic codes and the information that tells them what their destiny must be after they’re born. It doesn’t mean he’s pregnant and has the mother of all abortions.

    The rest has been pretty well debunked to death.

    • Miguel Felix January 17, 2014 at 11:12 PM - Reply

      Uhm.. Well yes it did contain that information, but it doesn’t change the fact that they would have been born if Superman didn’t destroy the ship right?
      I just think the actual Superman would have come up with something more clever than killing everyone.

      Thanks for your feedback.

    I agreed with putting Inside Llewnyn Davis on that list. Miguel I think you summed it up perfectly.

    Your MoS opinion is so off base it’s not even funny. Seriously, what are you even talking about?

    • Miguel Felix January 18, 2014 at 12:23 AM - Reply

      Everything I talked about happens in the film,I just think it’s a bad film and one of the worst interpretations of the Superman character, you are free to debate me on this I know a lot of people love this film.

  5. Elias Timberlake January 18, 2014 at 12:29 AM - Reply

    I agree with a few movies on this list, I strongly disagree with a few others, and the rest I haven’t seen, but most of all, I can’t read this because of your extreme writing errors. Grammar, writing, even some spelling. It’s all so horrid that I can’t stand it. Dod sno? No apostrophes or, ya’ know, COMMAS?? You even have two #3s on this list!

    • Miguel Felix January 18, 2014 at 12:57 AM - Reply

      We are well aware of this fact, and are currently working to improve upon it. We do this part time and we, especially myself struggle with English it’s all a growing thing and it will get better with time. And nonetheless it’s comments like yours that help us know what we have to improve.

      So thanks for your feedback.

  6. Elias Timberlake January 18, 2014 at 12:33 AM - Reply

    Also, Hansel and Gretel: Witch Hunters was freaking awesomely awfully stupidly awesome. And it totally knew what it was doing.

  7. wat January 18, 2014 at 1:47 AM - Reply

    Wow, what a horrible take on Man of Steel. Jesus, I hope your opinion doesn’t influence anyone else.

  8. Bio-ME January 18, 2014 at 2:19 AM - Reply

    I understand Iron Man 3 but MOS!! He did not commit genocide? What would be better if some people died by the World Engine or the whole planet LOL!!! and yet it was the World Engine that leveled a PART of the city and yes if you read COMICS(which I love) Superman is a smart badass/boy scout but this is his first time as Superman he doesn’t fully understand his powers and his limits and he does sacrifice himself for an entire planet that he really isn’t a part of biologically by going against his own kind and the World Engine knowing that being around it would effect him and maybe kill him. He also actually tries to lure Zod away from the planet because when they’re in space he throws Zod and Zod responds by throwing the Wayne Satellite.You need to go watch that movie again because everything you put up there in MOS is wrong in the sense of you not doing enough research or paying attention and don’t try and pull the it’s not what Superman would do because as I stated earlier this is his first time as Superman.

    • Miguel Felix January 18, 2014 at 5:58 PM - Reply

      You have a point.
      Did not expect to get so much backlash for Man of Steel, just goes to show you the difference in opinions. Still not convinced on the whole didn’t commit genocide thing, correct me please but didn’t he destroy the ship carrying his enire sleeping race?
      I’m pretty sure that’s right, anyway thanks for your feedback, I will give Man of Steel a second watch but still,I did not like this Superman.

    You seem like a very petty person. How about constructive criticism?

    • Miguel Felix January 18, 2014 at 6:02 PM - Reply

      Well if you read the full reviews on most, I offer constructive criticism. We are working on how to make these reviews and lists better, this was the second list I ever made so keep that in mind. Not trying to apologize, we shouldn’t have put the list out like this.

    Man of Steel was great

    Good God this article has terrible grammar. Did a 10 year old write this?

    • Miguel Felix January 18, 2014 at 6:08 PM - Reply

      No it was not written by a 10 year old.
      It was an article rushed when it shouldn’t have been rushed by everyone involved and for that we take the fault, but if you feel the need to state that the grammar is horrible go ahead, though we are already aware of this.

    ok seeing as how you deleted my first two comments i was a little offended by your gravity rant, it hurt me so and i needed some rum to ease the pain

    • Miguel Felix January 19, 2014 at 2:17 PM - Reply

      There are certain comments that will not be approved on this site Daniel. The rules are in the making but so far we assume common sense applies when necessary, also sorry that my Gravity rant hurt you, you should try being more tolerant toward other opinions. I mentioned several times that plenty of people liked the film and that my opinion was not absolute.

  13. Frost January 19, 2014 at 7:04 PM - Reply

    You’re a terrible speller, but you’re absolutely correct about every one of the films on this list. Thank you.

    • Frost January 19, 2014 at 7:11 PM - Reply

      oh, sorry, I just read that you rushed the article, in that case I take back my comment about your spelling. Still a perfect list. Especially Gravity, Elysium and that Coen brothers fiasco.

    • Miguel Felix January 19, 2014 at 9:11 PM - Reply

      Thank you very much for your feedback, As you can see not many people agree with me, but that was to be expected I guess. :)

    Iron Man 3, Man of Steel, Elysium and Gravity were all in my top 10. Awesome movies. Your points on IM3 especially make no sense. For example “it should scream Marvel not Shane Black” who freakin’ laid that rule? You? I think you are forcing yourself to hate this movie, and all of those I mentioned. Man of Steel? He was not committing genocide, he was sacrificing his long dead race for the greater good of Earth, his new home. I am not saying your opinion is wrong, I’m just saying you should actually get some proper complaints rather than petty little nitpicks like Iron Patriot having a cannon but never using it. If things like that piss you off then I’m afraid you are someone very hard to please.

    • Miguel Felix January 21, 2014 at 5:33 PM - Reply

      I pointed out that my nitpicks were nitpicks. I am not setting rules I am stating what I and many people look for in a Marvel movie. In Man of Steel I say once again that he did kill his entire race, even if it was for the greater good, it’s still genocide, honestly. If I were the population of earth I would be scared out of my mind of this Superman. If you like these films, that is okay and wont insult you, but look at what I actually mean and not what pisses you off about what I said.

      I do not force myself to hate anything nor do I like what you are implying by that, all that you read in this site are true and honest opinions.

        Man of Steel: The genetic code of his own race was still stored in his cells, this was explicitely said in the movie. The destroyed ship only had the machine that would extract this genetic code to “create” Kryptonians.
