    1. The Quiet Ones - very bad horror, i.e. not scary in the slightest. Pointless, in other words.
    2. The Monuments Men (just made me cringe a bit - does it fall under the award season films, though?)
    3. Maleficent (a big disappointing nothing after an amazing trailer)

    I managed to avoid the other dreadful looking films, I think. I didn't love Noah, but didn't hate it as much as some people. I actually liked Locke, Robocop, and really liked Under The Skin - it was one of my favourites this year.

    I thought The Two Faces of January was pretty bad. A Man wears the same cream suit for days, crawls and falls over, yet there's no a mark on it. He's also a wanted man but somehow manages to hide by tipping his hat.

    MK should get a medal for sitting through the junk.

    My 5 worst of 2014 so far.

    I, Frankenstein - Why did I even watch this?!?

    300: Rise of an Empire- simply terrible sequel prequel or whatever that feels tired where the original felt fresh & has one of the most simultaneously ludicrous & morally dubious sex scenes in recent mainstream cinema.

    Godzilla – Creating suspense & atmosphere is all well & good if a film actually finally delivers, Godzilla didn’t. The best character is killed off early on & you are left with a bland lead not doing much in a yawn inducing human story against which occasional shots of monstrous devastation are shown with all too brief action scenes.

    Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit - Pointless reboot, boring retro action thriller with characters behaving in ludicrously silly ways.
    Transcendence – The Lawnmower Man, Demon Seed, Colossus: The Forbin Project, eXistenZ just some of the movies that have to a greater or lesser degree influenced Transcendence & are by turns far more entertaining and/or interesting than Wally Pfister’s dull debut. It says nothing of interest, & says it extremely poorly with nothing to rouse audiences from dropping off. One of the most pointless films I’ve ever seen, it isn’t even interesting on a visual level which is criminal considering Pfister’s previous achievements. A movie about artificial intelligence that is totally devoid of intelligence. Not just the worst film of 2014 so far, but one of the worst films I have ever seen.

    Of the 5, actually sat through 'Need for Speed' to the end (it was a boring afternoon with nothing better to watch), gave up on Schwarzenegger, Cameron Diaz and Kevin Costner after a few minutes, avoided 'Rise of an Empire'. These movies seem to be thrown together so that the armies of special effects workers keep their jobs.

    C'mon Mark, a few ok/average mainly big budget, big name movies are really the WORST so far,?????

    For starters you'll be harder pressed to find a more embarrassing stinker than "The Love Punch' (http://filmramblings.blogspot.co.uk/2014/08/love-punch-2014.html)

    Another notable stinkers Noah, how on earth was that in Mark's TOP 10!! (http://filmramblings.blogspot.co.uk/2014/07/noah-2014.html)

    "He Who Dares" straight to dvd nonsense (http://filmramblings.blogspot.co.uk/2014/06/he-who-dares-2014.html)

    "That Awkward Moment@ smug unfunny (http://filmramblings.blogspot.co.uk/2014/05/that-awkward-moment-2014.html)

    "Bullet" Danny Trejo straight to dvd, you got it (http://filmramblings.blogspot.co.uk/2014/02/bullet-2014.html)

    'Deadly Weekend" dreadfully poor slasher flick (http://filmramblings.blogspot.co.uk/2014/01/deadly-weekend-aka-zellwood-2014.html)

    Stella Artois is Belgian, not French as you stated.
    Sorry, but seeing as this blog post is aimed at picking holes...
