"this is an article that will help you not waste hours and hours watching a crumby movie, I watched them so you didn't have to watch, 2025 - A world enslaved by a virus." -Poppy lillian zaiger, 6th grade
Before we hop into this, you have to know what a Rotten Tomato score & an audience score is. A Rotten Tomato score references the site of the same name, and reflects how critics of a certain movie responded. If it is a high score like 85% or above, the critics liked it, but if it was low like under 50% the critics didn’t like it as much. Same as for an audience score. But I added a Poppy score, it is a ?/10 thing, if it is under 10 it is normal If it is under 6 it is pretty bad, under 4 it is absolutely awful but if it is under 2 it is a pile of trash that 3 rats are eating at the bottom of a dumpster. Oh yeah, there will be spoilers for some of these movies.
10. Trolls, 2016
With a Rotten tomato score of 75% and an audience score of 67%, you might be wondering why this would be on the list? It is not THAT bad! Ohhhh no no no no no you will be mistaken. The plot makes zero sense, like why would you cook a nasty troll to become happy!?!?!? The characters are stupid, they have WAY too many stupid jokes crammed in for the sake of appealing to younger audiences, and the main character is named Poppy and whenever I tell my name to other kids they say, “Like Poppy the troll?”
Poppy score, 5/10
9. Trolls World Tour, 2020
With a decent Rotten Tomato score of 71% and a pretty bad audience score of 58%, I think that most people who watched this movie saw how bad it was. It is more of the same with Trolls 1 where there were stupid characters and stupid jokes that killed the 2016 Trolls movie and it is more of the same with Trolls World Tour. They have bad jokes, a twist-villain that makes no sense, and WORSE OF ALL there is a romance side plot. (I hate romance side plots.)
Poppy score, 5/10
8. Bad Boys for Life, 2020
With a rotten tomato score of 76% and an audience score of 96%, most people actually liked this! But me myself and I have many problems with this movie. The plot makes no sense, they left it on a cliffhanger to get more people to watch Bad Boys 4, the action sucks, and the acting is as bad as using lemons as eye drops.
Poppy score, 5/10
7. Despicable Me 2, 2013
With a Rotten Tomato score of 75% and an audience score of 85%. I have nothing to say except this was a lackluster movie that was driven by making money and money only.
Poppy score, 5/10
6. The Secret Life of Pets 2, 2019
Wow we have a LOT of sequels! With a Rotten Tomato score of 60% and an audience score of a whopping 90%, this movie seems good! BUT it is as unoriginal as the first one. Except it's WORSE!!! A stupid story? A boring plot? Not one but TWO stupid side plots? Who cares about a stupid side plot where a dog is in a crazy cat lady’s house with 500 cats!?! Not me! But along with the dumb side plots you have the main story, was it good? Nah! It sucked. The only thing that was even slightly redeeming about this movie was that even though the other side plot, which was saving a Bengal tiger from a circus and then putting it in a dog house. Kinda stupid, although I thought it was actually kind of funny.
Poppy score, 5/10
5. Despicable Me 3, 2017
With a Rotten Tomato score of 59% and an audience score of 53%...Yeesh people hated this one! I honestly thought that it would be a bit better but it just got worse and worse… The only reward it has of watching it is the villain is kind of funny? Maybe?? But the premise of two brothers coming together after being separated is a good concept, but it was not well executed.
Poppy score, 4/10
4. Ratatoing, 2007
I tried not to add any ripoffs of movies but this one was way too funny not to add. It is a ripoff of Disney’s Ratatouille. With a critic score of 0% because no critics even took the time to review it and an audience score of 30%. I bet that most of these viewers were old grandmas who got bamboozled. The animation, the voice acting, and the plot itself are all so sloppy. I think that it should stay in your grandmas attic to rot and wear down as time goes on.
Poppy score, 3/10
3. House of Gucci, 2021
My editor said how bad it was but I didn’t believe them, and it IS THAT BAD. With a Rotten Tomato score of 63% and a VERY UNDESERVED audience score of 83%, I wonder if rottentomatoes.com is all a lie. I am too lazy to make my own criticism since this is behind schedule so I am just going to quote my editor, “It was an awful movie with bad acting and awful Italian accents, I couldn’t even finish the movie.” - J. Karnes, 2021.
Poppy score, 2/10
2. 2025 - A World Enslaved by a Virus, 2021
It was so bad that I had to force myself to finish the movie. A funny thing is that while I was researching this I couldn’t even find it on Rotten Tomatoes (probably because the movie was made by one guy that has an odd track record to say the least). But anyway, it is about Christianity, which is illegal in 2025 and the Christians are revolting, but they also have hackers joining them, An anti masker premise, the main character getting killed at the end… AND OH GOD!!!! A ROMANCE SIDE PLOT!??!? NOOOOOOOO! And it also is really insensitive to the people who died from COVID-19, when the movie starts with a rant about how China faked this virus to control the people and religion. Excuse me but what do you mean that COVID-19 is fake? It has killed 6.2M people!
I rate it with the Poppy score, 1/10.
1. The Giver, 2014
This is a joke with the other sixth graders that I hate this movie, and I see people that love this movie, BUT FOR THE LOVE OF BABY JESUS DO NOT WATCH THIS MOVIE. With a deserved Rotten Tomato score of 35% and an undeserving audience score of 55%. No matter how many people try to change my mind, I will still hate this movie with a passion. It was based on my all time favorite book The Giver, and you know the fans of the Matilda book hating the movie so much that they had to make a new one? Well, I am that times that by 100,000,000,000,000% about this movie, except I don't want a new movie, I want this movie to be deleted off the census of the earth. It is the equivalent of that liquid you find at the bottom of a dumpster that even when the dumpster is fully cleaned out that liquid is somehow still there no matter how hard you try to scrub it out of that dumpster. It subtracts all of the good things about the giver and just adds an unfulfilling story where the fulfilling story was. Like for example the best character in the movie, The Giver himself, he was great in the book, but YOU KNOW WHAT MOVIE DOES!?!!!???!!?!?! It subtracts most of The Giver's screen time (which was the only parts of the movie that didn't make my eyes bleed) and adds a romance side plot with Fiona and Jonas. Fiona has barely any time in the book, so why is she relevant here?!? WHY IS SHE RELEVANT!?!? Oh I know it is because they wanted to extend the runtime and because boy protagonist and female protagonist get together crap. There should be no side plot, The Giver movie does not need one.
The original story was about the pain and suffering in the community that the people in said community don't know about, not some poorly written love story. And if you read the book, you know Asher, Jonas’s best friend? Well in the movie he is a villain! What??? They changed the whole entire movie to make it into an action packed movie which undermined the whole entire message of the story that it was based off of! If you want to get someone to confess to a crime than duct ape the person to the wall and make them watch this movie, it will break them. It’s so awful. This should have never happened.
Poppy score, -100/10
Anyway thank you for reading my criticism of these movies! Hope you have a great day.
