26. "Man of steel" (2013)
It could have been worse, I suppose. But he is still morally rude and has a plot that makes no sense. That it is very nice to look does not nullify those things enough to make it visible.

Completely horrible, but somehow entertaining even so. It is sad that apparently it has been swept in the sandbox of history.
