My least favourite films of 2014
For the last few years, I’ve called this list ‘The Worst Films I’ve Seen’. But as I generally choose not to see things which I know will irritate me (eg anything with Jim Carrey) or genres such as horror, then the films below are usually more of a disappointment than anything. Usually.

Number 5 – The Zero Theorem
Tried really hard to like this, but just left me feeling nothing at all.
Number 4 – Transcendence
Hugely anticipated – massively disappointing. Tells you the end at the very beginning, Johnny Depp bores, and Morgan Freeman plays Morgan Freeman.
Number 3 – The Wolf of Wall Street
Difficult to enjoy a film where the main character looks directly at you and dismisses your intelligence with “you wouldn’t understand”. After three hours of Leo, it’s McConnaughey’s short appearance that is the lasting memory.
Number 2 – Mistaken for Strangers
Self-indulgent and manipulative. I had to watch this 75 minute film in two sittings as the characters were just unbearable.
Number 1 – Mrs. Brown’s Boys D’Movie
Rancho Notorious, you have a lot to answer for. You made me go. I wasted the price of a bottle of wine and an hour and half of my life on this. And I’m not sure I will ever, ever forgive you. Ever.
