From 'Winter's Tale' to 'A Hauned House 2' and more
'Transformers: Age of Extinction'
It's been battered and beaten, but the terrible reviews haven't stopped "Transformers: Age of Extinction" from becoming one of 2014's biggest blockbusters. That being said, there is a laundry list of reasons why it deserves to be ranked among 2014's worst movies. How about the plot that defies logic time and time again? Or the blatant pandering to the Chinese government (one of the world's biggest theatrical markets now)? Maybe the terrible performances of Mark Wahlberg, Nicola Peltz and Jack Reynor? Or, yet again, jokes that seem to be funny only to director Michael Bay, his screenwriters and (maybe) the producers? Don't worry though, they will have a chance to fix it the fifth time around.
