Another year has come and gone, folks, and what a year it has been! In terms of film, it has been... interesting - to say the least. Of course, we were treated to some amazing films but, as expected, there were some atrocities that we had to endure too. It's our worst films of 2014.

The other day, I posted my list of top 14 films released in 2014. Well, today, I thought of going the other way and highlighting my WORST films of the year because let's be honest, there were some real stinkers that arrived this year - unfortunately for us. However, this time it won't be top 14 but, rather, top 5 worst films.

This year has played host to a variety of weird and wonderful films. We had some glorious out of the box projects, masterpiece indies and big-budgeted sequels but, unfortunately, this came with some real stinkers and box-office plunders. Yeah. Not good. However, it has been pretty decent overall to be fair.

Now, if I hear or read that a film is bad then, of course, I don't go and see that film so there's A LOT of bad films that I have not seen - which is why my list is so short. However, that doesn't mean I haven't seen any bad films. No. I have seen quite a few terrible movies this year and, in this article, I'm going to talk about the 5 worst that I have seen in the past 12 months.

So, let's begin.

I'm a big fan of Ridley Scott's. He has released a lot of wonderful movies in the past decade or so and, his latest, Exodus: Gods and Kings looked promising - like it was going to continue the trend and be yet another spectacular stunner for Scott. However, it is nothing more than a monumental piece of garbage and a huge disappointment. It's so tediously boring and utterly underwhelming. His biblical epic is certainly epic but more so an epic fail than anything else.

I was a HUGE fan of the teenage mutant ninja turtles growing up. I was somewhat excited for this until I saw the first trailer. I don't know what on earth made me decide to go and see the full thing in cinemas because I can safely say, it was as atrocious as I thought it would be. It's just awful. Of course, Bayhem is certain with Michael Bay on-board. Can that man do anything right? It seems not. Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles is heroes in a half-arsed shell and the perfect example of 'childhood ruined'.

How about a million ways to kill a movie? I'm a huge fan of Seth MacFarlane's - I think he's awesome and sooooo funny. After I saw and loved his hilarious directorial debut Ted, back in 2012, I was excited for his next big-screen outing - A Million Ways to Die in the West - but it seems I was wrong, VERY wrong to do so. It was not funny, at all. I didn't laugh. Not once. This was such a horrible film and I wish I could have been dying in the west rather than watching A Million Ways to Die in the West. Let's hope this was just a misfire and that he's not a one-hit wonder. Especially since Ted 2 is out next year.

Talk about a dumb movie. Lucy is one of the dumbest films I've seen all year. It's a fart-bomb. Firstly, we all use 100% of our brains and not 10% like this suggests (unless you're whoever came up with the idea for this film) and we certainly don't become God when we do use our brain's full capacity. Secondly, nothing about this is good - nothing. I'll be honest, I love Scarlet Johansson. I think she's an amazing (don't forget, beautiful) actress but what made her want to star in a film with such a ridiculous premise? I don't know. This is just so stupid and handled so poorly for that matter. I hate it.

Just no. I JUST reviewed this the other day. I haven't seen anything that stinks as hard as this does. It's EMBARRASSING to watch. It's cringey. You want to look away. If I had to choose between watching this again or stabbing my own eyes out, I'd choose the latter in a heartbeat. It's an atrocity of a film that is nothing more than a piece of shit. There's not a moment in this that I enjoyed. I hated every second of it. It is AWFUL!

So, there you have it everyone. That's my 5 worst films 2014. I hope you enjoyed reading. I just want to thank you all for the support towards Oasis Awais in the past year and I look forward to bringing you more posts, more awesome content and just talking MORE about movies in 2015. From myself, I wish you a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year. Stay safe and I'll see all next year - when we open the doors to Jurassic WorldThe Avengers: Age of UltronStar Wars: The Force Awakens and lots more. Hell yeah.
