2015 had a lot of terrible, terrible movies. It had more of them than the average year, it felt, although that might’ve just been because I saw far more films, too. With VOD continuing to rise to prominence – a cheap way to release a terrible movie to a less discerning audience – and the Hollywood system seemingly reveling in incompetence, we’re going to get a lot of junk. Today’s CineMarter Awards celebrate – or, more appropriately, mock – the bad films of 2015.

While I’ve previously looked at my worst films of 2015, that was before I had a chance to catch up on a some things I missed earlier in the year, and it was also before I had seen Point Break. Little Boy, for instance, didn’t even come out here, despite its wide release in America. It was a tone-deaf religious movie with just the worst kid actor of the year in the lead. Paranormal Activity: The Ghost Dimension took everything that was scary about the franchise … and explained it to us so we’d no longer be scared, as if it was a parent worried we’d have trouble sleeping. Point Break is the laziest, most inept action movie of the year, led by a charismatic black hole and populated by some of the least intelligent philosophy you’ll hear at the cinema. And The Ridiculous 6 was Adam Sandler’s Netflix-exclusive debut and, in it, he insulted Native Americans for a couple of torturous hours.
