Here Is Everything Wrong With Lucy In One Convenient Video

fb share tweet share

Last summer, Luc Besson’s Lucy was something of a surprise hit. The Scarlett Johansson-starring actioner is crazy and over the top and lets just say there are some jumps in logic, but it’s also a damn ton of fun. You probably already guessed this was coming, and now Cinema Sins has unveiled one of their ubiquitous “Everything Wrong With…” videos for Lucy.

This 13-Minute Video Picks At Everything Wrong With After Earth

fb share tweet share

You know your movie has problems when even the star comes out publicly and says it was terrible. That’s the case with After Earth, the 2013 M. Night Shyamalan-directed, Will and Jaden Smith-starring sci-fi flick that missed the mark in many, many ways. It was so generally trashed that it’s actually a surprise it’s taken this long, but After Earth is now the subject of one of Cinema Sins’ “Everything Wrong With…” videos.

If you’ve ever seen one of these videos, you should be well aware of what you’re in for. As usual, some of the complaints are legitimate, like problems with the awkward structure that flashes back and forth willy nilly, some questions about the scientific side of things, and how everything on an abandoned Earth has evolved to kill humans, despite the fact that humans haven’t been on Earth in thousands of years. Others are nitpicky.

This Video Shows You Everything Wrong With John Carter

fb share tweet share

John Carter was a rather sizeable flop when it came out a little less than three years ago. Sure, earning $73 million domestically ($284 million world wide) sounds like a lot of money, but when your movie costs $250 million, that’s not exactly what the studio hoped for. It doesn’t help matters that it was critically savaged upon release, and that, coupled with Battleship essentially sunk Taylor Kitch’s shot at being a big time leading man, at least for the time being. As you can imagine, there are some serious problems with this movie, and Cinema Sins’ latest “Everything Wrong With…” video tackles this sci-fi opus.

Here Is Everything Wrong With Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles

fb share tweet share

You had to know that this was coming. The Jonathan Liebesman-directed, Michael Bay-produced Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles was a big hit, finishing 2014 as the 14th highest grossing movie domestically, and raking in more than $477 million worldwide. It was such an instant triumph that Paramount greenlit a sequel damn near the moment the film opened. But despite how successful it was, it got shit on all over the place by critics and many fans, and so of course you had to expect Cinema Sins to give the film one of their patented “Everything Wrong With…” videos, and this is an extensive one.

There are, admittedly, a lot of problems with Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, ranging from those weird humanoid faces to the fact that it’s more about Megan Fox’s April O’Neil than the actual title characters (out of all the issues, this is my biggest gripe). But damn, this video is almost 23 minutes long, which is a bit excessive for a movie that is only runs 101 minutes in total.

Guardians Of The Galaxy Gets Roasted By Cinema Sins

fb share tweet share

We never get tired of Cinema Sins’ recurring “Everything Wrong With Such-and-Such” video series, which aims to pick every last nit in films ranging from the Transformers movies to The Fault in Our Stars. But it’s easy to mock objectively terrible moves. It’s a lot more daunting to roast the sacred cows, and you’d be hard pressed to find a more beloved 2014 movie than Guardians of the Galaxy. I mean, it’s one of the biggest hits of the year and is currently rocking a 90% Fresh Rotten Tomatoes score, but it’s not like it’s perfect. So let’s see how harsh the Cinema Sins folks are to Star-Lord and company, shall we?

Watch Everything Wrong With V For Vendetta

fb share tweet share

Some cinematic versions of the future involve interplanetary travel, flying cars, or even giant freakin’ robots. (Guess which version is our favorite?) Alan Moore and David Lloyd’s alternate reality in V for Vendetta feels a lot less advanced than all that, and James McTeigue’s feature version was a solid representation of that repressed police state, but it’s not perfect, as evidenced by the video below, which captures all of the film’s more glaring faults. (Such as Natalie Portman not being the narrator’s girlfriend.)
