There are mistakes we unlook and there are films that should never have made it off the pre-production floor. The 6 films have (some of them are) the biggest blunders in 2019 so far.
If there was ever an award for the most number of transition between scenes in a movie, then The Good will win it without contest. Other than that, the story went to shits pretty quickly in a bid to pull off a plot twist. How do you beat someone, stab them in the eye with a knife, leave them lying there in a pool of their blood for over 15 minutes, and the person doesn’t die? To make matters worse, the transition of the main character from being good to a villain was even more confusing than the most complex mathematical equation.
Hobbs and Shaw
Ever since Dwayne Johnson entered the Fast and Furious franchise, the movies became more about fueling his adrenaline and showing off ridiculous feats of strength, than about the reasons we fell in love with the franchise in the first place. Hobbs and Shaw only made it worse. How do you explain a human being keeping a freaking helicopter from taking off? A “Black Superman” that can predict his opponent’s moves but can’t seem to fight two people at the same time or even shoot a bullet that lands a hit? Nah, I can’t deal with such, tbh.
It might be the highest-grossing movie of all time, but it’s certainly not the best. Though it was enjoyable and one heck of an amazing rollercoaster ride of emotions, the time heist still doesn’t make sense, and that’s what makes this movie enter the blunders list.
It’s so bad that even the directors and writers have conflicting theories on the effects of time travel. Also, what happened when Captain America return the Soul Stone to Vormir and saw the Red Skull? And the people Hulk snapped back into existence came back at the exact place they left, does that mean people in aeroplanes, ships, cars, etc… Well, you get the point.
Ndani TV’s decision to cancel Oga Pastor is one of the strangest decisions ever. There was ample time to cancel the project from pre-production, casting, shooting, to the post-production stage, yet they didn’t. Three episodes in and they cancel it without giving any reason why (I’m pretending it’s not because of the COZA scandal.)
What I want to ask is, if Oga Pastor was in like season 3 as at when the scandal came up, would they still have cancelled it?
The only thing good about this TV show is the beautifully choreographed fight scenes. The sad part is, it doesn’t make up for how terrible it is in almost everything else. At least if you want to borrow the premise of Avatar: The Last Airbender, the least you can do is do it right. Pfft!
Game of Thrones Season 8
The Mother of Drabs! The Breaker of Hearts, and the Queen of misses. If the Time Stone existed, I’d find it, rewind time, and warn the writers of the show not to do something so annoying. Don’t get me wrong, there were beautifully shot scenes and I’m okay with how some part of it ended (yay, Dany’s death), but there are so many “what was the point of this?” questions like Jon finding out he’s a Targaryen, the green eyes Arya was supposed to kill, the insignia of the White Walkers, Bran saying he doesn’t want to hold any title except being the three-eyed Raven, to mention a few. Nah, they did me dirty, I won’t lie. I was very pained.
