Be warned: Don’t catch The Lobster at all costs – the worst film of the year

The Mrs saw a trailer for a film she thought was a comedy, The Lobster. Amid some grumbling from myself about watching Suffragettes, she offered this as an alternative. Whatever.

It turns out to be a film about a dystopian word where marriage is compulsory and if you can’t find a partner they turn you into an animal. It was as ludicrous as it was utterly pointless. A few hipsters behind us laughed sporadically but that just confirmed my view that all hipsters are dickheads.  The film contained cringe making faux sexual arousal scenes and gruesome and gratuitous nastiness. .

Colin Farrell did his best as the lead, but The Lobster is without doubt the worst film I have seen in years. Avoid it at all costs. I’d rather watch a whole season of Millwall than watch this even one more time. It was that bad in every single respect. It had absolutely no redeeming features at all and was sheer torture throughout.

To her credit, the Mrs agreed. Next movie: the new Bond. It is my turn to choose.
