**Circuit Q&A’s are our daily community question, posed to the readers of AwardsCircuit that cover various topics from film and television to general wonderings and for instances**
Whenever a new year begins, we spend some time looking back. Part of that is due to how bad most January releases are, to be sure. However, most like to fete the highest quality titles of the past year. Today, in a bit of a twist, we want to know about the 2019 flicks that you found disappointing. Not necessarily bad (though those qualify too), but the ones that ended up so far below where you had expected. In a very real way, these are the titles that hurt the most to think about, so apologies in advance.
There’s a clear answer here for many people, and that’s “Cats.” No other film in recent cinematic history has fallen on its face quite like this one (and I thought cats always land on their feet?). Once an Oscar player, even right up until release it was seen as an Academy Award contender in certain categories, if not Best Picture. Then, we all saw it. Especially if you were a fan of the hit Broadway show, seeing the material treated like this had to be rough and a major disappointment.
Maybe it was another potential awards contender like “Lucy in the Sky” that you found most disappointing? Perhaps you were unlike most of the awards season voters and found “Joker” to be a big letdown? This is just scratching the surface, too. There’s a ton of other movies that you can cite, and we’re expecting you to mention them in the comments section below.
The choice is now yours. Which movie last year was the most disappointing to you? We may cringe at your selection, but we can’t wait to find out!
