The LEGO® NINJAGO® Movie is by far the weakest of the LEGO® franchise be it theatrical or direct-to-video as the humor doesn’t really work and it’s just a bland animated flick that might appeal to a younger audience.

Office Christmas Party is yet another comedy with an amazing, and mostly proven, cast (Aniston is probably the standout) that fails due to a screenplay that lacked consistent laughs and features an absolutely cringe-worthy finale.

When it comes down to it Mortdecai is just a bad movie. None of the jokes worked and Johnny Depp’s latest outlandish performance is no longer charming and the respectable supporting cast is completely wasted. This is not even worth a rental.
