List Rules Movies must have been released in 2012

The worst movies if 2012 include the least watchable, most disappointing and painfully awful films released during the year. These train wrecks entertained no one, are bad and should feel bad for existing in the first place. Plain and simple, these movies have no redeeming qualities (unless you count being among the worst movies of all time a positive thing) and represent hours of our time that we can never get back.

Looking at these outright bad 2012 movies, it's hard to comprehend the millions of dollars spent to produce and promote these flops. Some are just plain lame with unfunny jokes and cheesy acting, such as the worst comedy movies of the year including Adam Sandler's "That's My Boy," "The Babymakers," "The Watch" and "A Thousand Words." In three words, those comedies suck.

But it wasn't only hopefully funny movies that made audiences groan in 2012 with a number of horrible drama, action and horror movies earning ridiculously low ratings on Rotten Tomatoes. Nearly everyone agreed that "Battleship" was atrocious, so much so that board game movies might just be a thing of the past from now on. "Total Recall" wasn't much better, definitely a far cry from the original. Even "The Expendables 2," stacked with all the action stars you can think of, was a total flop.

Why bad movies like these 2012 worst movies are still produced is a mystery but luckily there were just as many top movies of 2012 released throughout the year to balance out the scales like the best comedy movies of 2012 and the best action movies of 2012. So if you're looking for something to watch, unless all the rest of the movies on this planet have been burned, don't watch these dreadful movies. Go play outside, watch paint dry or just stare off into space. Your brain will thank you.
