2013 hasn’t had as many great movies as recent years, but it’s certainly had its share of stinkers. A Bottom 10 list doesn’t even do justice to some of the rotten pieces of cinema that have come audiences’ way in the last 12 months. As bad as Paranoia, Safe Haven, and Identity Thief may have been, they all at least had some redeemable value. The following movies did not. If you have the choice to watch one of these, refrain.

Riddick has much in common with another recent movie: the Tom Cruise-starring Oblivion. Both are sci-fi movies without a single original thought, which steal liberally from other movies. The main difference between the two is that Oblivion, for all its unoriginality, was one of the most visually spectacular movies of 2013. Riddick, on the other hand, has directing, acting, and visual effects as weak as its writing.
