AFT Awards: Worst Movie of the Year

This is the twenty-sixth category of the 5th Annual AFT Film Awards to be announced. The AFT Awards are my own personal choices for the best in film of each year and the best in television of each season. The AFT Film Awards include the traditional Oscar categories and a number of additional specific honors, or dishonors in this case. Nominees are pictured in the order I’ve ranked them. Click here to see previous years of this category, which includes films that received an F grade.

I Am
Bombay Beach
Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides

The winner:
Super was so unbelievably horrendous that it was hard to believe everything in it was actually happening. A superhero comedy starring Rainn Wilson and Ellen Page should have been great, but this was entirely and unspeakably dreadful.

Other nominees:
Zenith was a convoluted, messy, boring dystopian story with no ability to engage its audience. Hesher tried and failed to put children into an ugly and violent tale. Brother’s Justice purported to be a documentary much like “I’m Still Here,” but it was far too obvious and self-aware. Faces in the Crowd was a laughable story about someone unable to recognize people’s faces, and having Milla Jovovich in the lead role was not its biggest problem.
