2013 So Far (May - Aug) Bottom 5 2013 Releases

My roundup of the second third of 2013 continues with a look at the worst the year has offered me so far.  Having seen a scandalous 64 releases from 2013 the field was quite competitive, here are the five films I've enjoyed the least so far:

5. Olympus Has Fallen - Dir. Antoine Fuqua

4.  Epic - Dir. Chris Wedge

3. I Give It A Year - Dir. Dan Mazer

2. A Glimpse Inside The Mind of Charles Swan III - Dir. Roman Coppola

1. Die Hard 5 - Dir.  John Moore

So many awful movies coming out of Hollywood this year, I've been torturing myself in the hope that one of them will entertain me but it's so rare these days. It's as though they're determined to make the worst movie possible at all times, some other notably bad movies highlighted below.

  1. Not even something that fine-lookin' is worth the time to see the new Die Hard 5.

    1. Nope. Nor Charles Swan III either. I hope they got paid a lot of money as it's not something that will look good on their resume.

  2. That die hard shot is such a "let's fill our safe-yet-titillating nudity quota for both the movie and the dramatic trailer" image I just want to punch something.

    1. It's also there to fill my safe-yet-titllating quota on the blog. The amount of hits I get for search terms including "naked" is incredible.

  3. Die Hard 5. 'Nuff said. Fortunately, I haven't seen the rest of these.
