1) Independence Day: Resurgence
Independence Day: Resurgence is the quintessential example of corporate-mandated film making. At its absolute worst. It is what happens when a group of talented people are forced to do something that they do not want to do, and create something that doesn't have an ounce of passion behind it. I never had any hope for this film. You could see its corporate mandates from a million miles away. It's sad, really. Because I know this crew, led by the great disaster film director Roland Emmerich, has the capability to make something like this fun and entertaining. Buuuuuut what the heck happened here? How are the effects in this film SO bad? Literally every corner possible was cut here, per corporate I'm sure, and as a result the effects, which are supposed to be the calling card in a big summer blockbuster, are hilariously terrible. The story is just a rehash, almost to a scene, of the first film, except the destruction is much bigger. Because of course, sequels have to be bigger, better, and more badass. Right? Regardless of how that affects the final product. On top of that, literally everyone here is terrible. I mean sure people like Jeff Goldblum and Judd Hirsch don't care because they're good to go, but what about someone like Maika Monroe? Or Joey King? Or Jessie T. Usher? They have something to lose because of how terrible this film is. I really fear this may tank Monroe's career right after it was taking off with her performance in It Follows from 2015. Because being associated with this film is toxic. It is SO terrible, and people will not forget if you took a paycheck to be in this pile of dog crap. Only time will tell. But one thing is for certain: ID4 2 is terrible, and it is terrible because of crappy editing, horrendous special effects, and a rehash of the same story as its predecessor. It embodies the absolute worst of Hollywood, and thus deserves a spot at the bottom of this list. Shame on you, 20th Century Fox, for mandating the creation of this film. Shame. On. You.
