Ten 2017 releases that didn't wow critics. Some of these sound like guilty pleasure material, and might be worth a rental for a bad movie night.

BO = (domestic) box office
RT = Rotten Tomatoes
ms = metascore


1



The Emoji Movie (2017)
BO: $86m - RT: 9% - ms: 12 - IMDb: 2.9

"80-plus minutes of excruciating mental torture."

2



Tyler Perry's Boo 2! A Madea Halloween (2017)
BO: $47m - RT: 6% - ms: 17 - IMDb: 3.1

"In the end, the scariest thing about Boo 2! is the idea that A Madea Easter might be next."

3



Transformers: The Last Knight (2017)
BO: $130m - RT:  16% - ms: 28 - IMDb: 5.2

"Michael Bay doesn't make movies anymore; he makes migraine auras."

4



Fifty Shades Darker (2017)
BO: $114m - RT:  10% - ms: 33 - IMDb: 4.6

"This is not so much Fifty Shades Darker as Fifty Shades Duller, and on so many fronts too."

5



Rings (2017)
BO: $27m - RT: 7% - ms: 25 - IMDb: 4.5

"Seven days after seeing Rings, you won't remember a thing about it."

6



Geostorm (2017)
BO: $33m - RT: 13% - ms: 21 - IMDb: 5.5

"Really could have used a Sharknado or two to liven things up."

7



Flatliners (2017)
BO: $16m - RT:  5% - ms: 27 - IMDb: 5.0

"This would be boring if it wasn't so unintentionally funny."

8



The Mummy (2017)
BO: $80m - RT:  16% - ms: 34 - IMDb: 5.5

"It feels less like a movie than a series of compromises worked out by a corporate committee."

9



The Nut Job 2: Nutty by Nature (2017)
BO: $28m - RT:  9% - ms: 36 - IMDb: 5.1

"No one seems to know why The Nut Job 2 exists, including the people who made it."

10



The Dark Tower (2017)
BO: $50m - RT:  16% - ms: 34 - IMDb: 5.7

"Inconsistent, incoherent and often cheesy."

I'm almost proud to say I didn't see a single new film released in 2017.

some of those look possibly worth a watch though, especially Flatliners if it's as unintentionally funny as they reckon.

I heard The Mummy was bad.

The Emoji Movie, that exists?....icons fail me.

I actually thought RINGS was quite good.  Not as good as the original, but scores better than the horrible RING 2.

Rings made me realize there's a problem with trailers that give away endings-they also ruin foreshadowing as a storytelling device.  I totally guested what the ending of Rings was, even though it wasn't in the trailer.  Rather the first scene in the movie foreshadows it (which is in the trailer) and I thought it was the final scene in the movie.

The Mummy was just dull.

I'm still not sure what the real draw of the Fifty Shades of Gray story is.  Its just about a young woman who meets a rich guy whose into BDS&M and that's it.  At least Twlight had some supernatural elements to it that might make it something.  And that's maybe the only thing positive I have to say about that franchise.

I didn't see any of these....I was on the fence about maybe Rings because I decided to wait until it was out on DVD to think it over

I'm almost too embarrassed to admit that The Dark Tower was made in South Africa.

The only REALLY bad movie I saw in 2017 was THE HOUSE (with Will Ferrel and Amy Poehler).

Rex Reed is such an obnoxious troll. I thought he had retired. At least two of those will appear on most critics best 10 list, and GET OUT will win a ton of awards, rightfully so.

There's a movie that's conspicuously absent from this list. I can't quite put my finger on it, but it's definitely absent. (With good reason, if you ask me.)

There were two movies I saw recently that I just REALLY didn't like:

A GHOST STORY

IT COMES AT NIGHT

Not that they were badly done, just slow, draggy, and devoid of any kind of resolution.

B.O. Box office
The cost is an estimate.
Even more of a guess is how much a film needs to make ere it turns a profit, as others have said 2 and a half times it costs to make it, so that is what we are going with.
What is not a guess is that the spending does not stop, when a film is finished and in the can. For example: it is believed that Warner Brothers spent a $100 million to promote Justice League after it was made. Thus . . .

The Emoji Movie
Cost $50,000,000
B.O. $86,000,000
Failed to make a profit.

Tyler Perry's Boo 2
Cost $25,000,000
B.O. $47,000,000
Failed to make a profit.

Transformers: the Last Knight
Cost $217,000,000
B.O. $130,000,000
Failed to earn back the cost it took to make it.
And this was one of the few franchises Paramount had going for it.

Fifty Shades Darker
Cost $55,000,000
B.O. $114,000,000
Failed to make a profit

Rings
Cost $25,000,000
B.O. $27,000,000
Failed to make a profit.

Geostorm
Cost $120,000,000
B.O. $33,000,000
Failed to earn back the cost it took to make it.

Flatliners
Cost $20,000,000
B.O. $16,000,000
Failed to earn back the cost it took to make it.

The Mummy
Cost $125,000,000
B.O. $80,000,000
Failed to earn back the cost it took to make it.

The Nut Job 2
Cost $40,000,000
B.O. $28,000,000
Failed it earn back the cost it took to make it.

The Dark Tower
Cost $60,000,000
B.O. $50,000,000
Failed to earn back the cost it took to make it.

Total cost
$737,000,000
Total box office
$611,000,000

Average cost
$73.7 million
Average box office
$61.1 million

What we do not know is how much the critical drubbing these films took affected the domestic box office. Though, there are some folks, including some critics, that a criticism of a film, has little effect on what a film earns at the box office.

Of course, domestic box office is not the only source of money can earn.
--There is the international box office, as over half of American films now earn more overseas than it does at home.
--There is the TV rights.
--There is the DVDs.
--And there is the ancillary merchandise. For example: Frozen may have earned a billion $ at the box office, but it earned over $2 billion in merchandise sales.
