8 Disney’s Worst Movies You Should Avoid


The Walt Disney Company, commonly known as Disney is a worldwide leader in the animation industry. It gave us such masterpieces as the Lion King (1994), Beauty and the Beast (1991), Finding Nemo (2003), Frozen (2013), Zootopia (2016) and many others.

Face it, every time we see the Disney intro, we all have the warm assurance that next few hours we’ll spend watching the fascinating movie.

But today we’re going to talk about most failure Disney’s live-action films, according to IMDb ranking and critics reviews.

8. Pete’s Dragon (2016)

IMDb 6.7

Critic review:

“Pete’s Dragon is one of those movies that talks a lot about magic-Robert Redford, the grandfatherly narrator whose “by and by” bookends the film, says the word at least seven times-rather than effectively presenting it on screen.”

Oliver Jones, New York Observer

7. The Odd Life of Timothy Green (2012)

IMDb 6.6

Critic review:

“It’s the sort of thing you’ll either find enchanting or an excellent reason to reach for the Scotch.”

Ty Burr, Boston Globe

6. John Carter (2012)

IMDb 6.6

Critic review:

“There’s nothing to see, nothing to think about, nothing to care about, and nothing to feel, just emptiness. The emptiness is never filled over the course of 132 long, barren minutes.”

Mick LaSalle, San Francisco Chronicle

5. The Lone Ranger (2013)

IMDb 6.5

Critic review:

“When it comes to mining boys’ adventure stories, defaming pirates may be fair game, but stories about western justice and native Americans? Not so much.”

Liam Lacey, Globe and Mail

4. Tomorrowland (2015)

IMDb 6.5

Critic review:

“Brad Bird’s Tomorrowland, a noble failure about trying to succeed, is written and directed with such open-hearted optimism that you cheer it on even as it stumbles.”

Peter Travers, Rolling Stone

3. The BFG (2016)

IMDb 6.4

Critic review:

“There are good bits among the bad (the giant’s bullying, bratty kinfolk especially), but mostly, there’s simply not enough there.”

Matthew Lickona, San Diego Reader

2. Oz the Great and Powerful (2013)

IMDb 6.3

Critic review:

“By the end of the two-hour 10-minute movie, director Sam Raimi proves he understands spectacle but not the deeper dreams of the people who consume it.”

Joe Williams, St. Louis Post-Dispatch

1. The Sorcerer’s Apprentice (2010)

IMDb 6.1

Critic review:

“As Balthazar, Cage doesn’t disappoint. He’s just manic enough to keep the character from becoming too predictable. More’s the pity, then, that a pro like him has to cede so much screen time to his character’s young protege.”

Michael O’Sullivan, Washington Post
