20 Worst Films of 2012
From 'Battleship' to 'This Means War,' the year's biggest cinematic stinkers
With all the fawning end-of-the-year kudos currently circulating, it's easy to forget that a sizable number of actual bad movies came out in 2012. Well, consider this a refresher.
From failed blockbuster tentpoles ("Battleship") to would-be hilarious comedies ("The Watch") to lame scare-challenged horror flicks ("The Apparition") to...uh, well, pretty much anything involving Tyler Perry, there's no doubt that the last 366 days have come with a heaping helping of truly heinous cinematic stinkers.
So what better time for an accounting of the year's most outrageous big-screen abominations than on the eve of the coming apocalypse? You're gonna have to make peace with the end of the world somehow - might as well do it by reminding yourself of just how bad things can get at the local multiplex.
