Although it was a great year for movies in 2015, I did come across some not-so-good ones in the batch. So, with that, I'll start with a poem:
Below are the duds ...
The turds. The failures, flops and busts.
The worsts. The washouts, lemons and mutts.
The dumbest, stupidest films that flashed before my eyes.
The two hours plus that I'll never get back alive.

The Hobbit: Battle of the Five Armies
‘Hobbit: Battle of the Five Armies': I honestly couldn't wait for Bilbo to get back to the shire so this overblown CGI video game could end.— 1SentenceMovieReview (@EimerFilmReview) October 29, 2015
Dumb and Dumber To
'Dumb And Dumber To:' Showed up to see more of Lloyd & Harry's funny antics, but left with the nostalgia of the original in my mind @DumbTo— 1SentenceMovieReview (@EimerFilmReview) October 19, 2015
