The 13 Most Disappointing Movies of 2016

The 13 Most Disappointing Movies of 2016
2016 was in many ways a rough year for Hollywood. An unusual number of high-profile deaths — Gene Wilder, Patty Duke, Garry Shandling, Alan Rickman, Prince, Anton Yelchin, Carrie Fisher, and Debbie Reynolds — left the industry heartbroken. The election of Donald Trump as president has terrified all of Hillary Clinton’s liberal supporters. And on the big screen, despite a record year at the U.S. box office (thanks to Disney), something felt truly stale about many of this year’s massive studio tentpoles.

With a few exceptions, like “Finding Dory,” the theme of this 2016’s blockbusters could best be summed up as: it was better last time. There’s been a long-brewing debate about the consequence of so many sequels on the long-term health of the movie business.

It was Russell Poole’s reports and theories that became the subject of the book upon which “Labyrinth” is based, Randall Sullivan’s “Labyrinth: A Detective Investigates the Murders of Tupac Shakur and Notorious B.I.G., the Implication of Death Row Records’ Suge Knight, and the Origins of the Los Angeles Police Scandal.”

Although it was long speculated that Biggie had been somehow responsible for Shakur’s death, it was Poole who believed that Death Row CEO Suge Knight was a major factor in their rivalry.

‘Neon Demon’ Dp Natasha Braier: How She Turned Bright Color Schemes Into A Nicolas Winding Refn Nightmare
When cinematographer Natasha Braier first read “Neon Demon,” she didn’t particularly like writer-director Nicolas Winding Refn’s script.

On her drive home from Refn’s, Braier’s agent called saying she’d been offered job.
