Five Most Disappointing Movies of 2016


2016 has been a pretty decent year for films, in my opinion at least. Naturally, some of the most highly anticipated films of the year were disappointing, such as Suicide Squad and Batman Vs Superman (the latter I had no hope for whatsoever). However, there have been some great films outside the mainstream (where the films were pretty disappointing) but today I'm going to focus on the films I was looking forward to but let me down.

Swiss Army Man



Hank Thompson (Paul Dano) is stranded on an Island way out to sea, he is about to hang himself off a rock before he spots a corpse (played by Daniel Radcliffe) has washed up on the shore. The corpse appears to be totally dead and motionless (which is what corpses do I suppose) apart from the fact it appears to be farting. These farts are quite powerful and create a special kind of energy that can propel Hank great distances. Soon enough, the corpse seems to come to life, and the two form a strange bond as they both on an extraordinary adventure.
