Year In ReviewYear In ReviewWe look back at the best, worst, and most significant moments of the year, and look forward to next year.

Nothing’s more disappointing as a kid than receiving a pair of socks for the holidays, and nothing is more disappointing as an adult than seeing our favorite films make questionable choices. And there were many, many bad choices in movies this year.

[Editor’s Note: Some spoilers are contained in the video for Hobbs & Shaw, Avengers: Endgame, Glass, Dark Phoenix, Detective Pikachu, and Joker.]


So, like combining fursuits and Jason Derulo, the io9 video lab’s mad scientists decided to fuse two bad things to create an amazing thing. Enjoy the Franken-fruits of our labor: the worst movie moments of 2019, reenacted with sock puppets....our gift to you. Happy holidays!


P.S.: Sadly, our gift could not include any scenes from Cats, as it landed in theaters after we had filmed. If, after watching this video, you thought to yourself, “I sure would like to see something even less coherent and cheaper-looking than this puppet video, but with celebrities and a multi-million dollar budget,” we urge you to see Cats.

This is missing some key scenes from The Rise of Skywalker, which were far worse than most of the scenes in this.
