Whether it’s a fantastic trailer building up false expectations or a sequel undermining all the good work that came before, leaving the cinema disappointed seems as likely as leaving it feeling satisfied. Here are five films that left us feeling nauseous…
10. ‘Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull’
(N.B. This poster makes the film look good. It’s not.)
Only in 10th place due to the fact its dispiriting failure was somewhat inevitable, had this utterly unnecessary addition to a previously beloved franchise been a stand-alone film, it STILL would have been one the worst films ever made – when even the peerless Cate Blanchett manages to give a terrible performance, you know you’re in deep, deep doo-doo.
