THE BIGGEST DISAPPOINTMENTS (WORST) IN 2013 FILMS

I love movies. There are what are traditionally thought up as “bad” movies, filled with technical incompetence, odd acting choices and even middle of the road films that nobody cares about.

So here are 10 movies (in no particular order) that HELPED make the case for 2013 as a strong year for films:
