Worst 5 Films in 2016

As the 2016 film season comes to a halt, I will be choosing my picks for the worst 5 films of the year.

Find more of my Top 5 Lists HERE

Click on the titles to see my review of the film. Note: I did not review Warcraft or The Killing Joke

Note: As I have not seen every film this year, this is compiled from the films I have seen (I’ve seen over 60 2016 releases). Many of the potential Oscar films may be absent from this list as they are only in limited release or have not yet been released in NZ, where I live. I will update these lists as necessary once I have seen each film.

To be eligible for these lists, a film must be released theatrically in 2016, released on a streaming service in 2016 or otherwise be released in a period which is up to my discretion.
