TV Cartoons Spawn 2014’s Top Two Worst Movies, Says RiffTrax
Our friends at RiffTrax have just unveiled their annual list of the Top 10 Worst Movies of 2014! Well, technically, it’s an annual list of worst movies and the “2014” part applies only to this year. It’d be silly for them to have an annual list of 2014’s worst movies, although it’d be interesting to see how the “test of time,” as it’s called, changes our view of bad cinema, so maybe it’s not all that silly, but that’s not what they’re doing.
Wait, you say–what’s a list of movies doing on a TV blog? Or maybe you’re not saying that because you read the title before you clicked on the article. Whatever. Look, this intro is already out of control as it is, so quit arguing with me. RiffTrax is descended from MST3K so anything they do is fair game as far as HNTP is concerned, and besides, the two worst movies of the year are both adaptations of 1980s’ cartoons, which were on TV, so there, smartypants.
So here go you–the two worst movies of the year according to an open vote of more than 250,000 RiffTrax fans:
2. Transformers: Age of Extinction (26,220 votes)
If you’d like the experience of seeing this movie but prefer not to give any portion of your income to Michael Bay, just have a screaming lunatic beat you into unconsciousness with small engine parts.
1. Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles (32,140 votes)
Finally, advances in CGI technology and film wizardry are able to create a Megan Fox so lifelike you’d swear she was actually human.
For the full Top 10 list and all the snark that goes with it, head over RiffTrax.
