Weekly Poll Results: Most Disappointing 2015 Summer Movie


A few months after The Avengers: Age of Ultron was voted the second best movie of 2015 so far, Film Junk readers have also named it the most disappointing movie of the summer. Polls are weird. Expectations were pretty high, which probably accounts for part of this. The Marvel blockbuster also had a lot more viewers to draw from than the second most disappointing film, Fantastic Four, which audiences avoided like the plague. Jurassic World came in third with 15% of the votes, followed by Terminator Genisys. Tomorrowland rounded out the top 5. Cameron Crowe’s Aloha was easily one of the lowest grossing movies on the list, which makes it somewhat interesting that it finished in sixth. Way down at the bottom of the list, Paul Feig’s Spy didn’t receive a single vote, so I guess it wasn’t disappointing at all! Do you agree with these results?

    Tomorrowland was so disappointing it killed Tron 3.

    I actually thought AoU was better than the first Avengers. If anything, Ant-Man was the disappointment. They could’ve so easily gone all-out wacky but they missed the opportunity. Plus all the rewrites to tie-in with the MCU felt so tacked on.

    What a load of shite. AoU is awesome. Even better than the first one.

    Tomorrowland was my dissapointment of the 1st half of the year.

    As Sean points out, polls like this are highly skewed towards the movies that people actually watch. Also, It didn’t look like nearly as many people actually voted on this poll as compared to the “best of the first half of the year” poll.

  • Kenneth Serenyi

    People can really like AoU and still be a little disappointed that it couldn’t quite live up to the hype created by the first Avengers.
