26. Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom

Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom was the final movie in the DCEU and that alone left it feeling a bit purposeless; like it existed outside of space and time. The Flash had already reset things, but even some of those aspects were being phased out, including Aquaman himself. So why the sequel?

That aside, the film did offer up another immersive adventure that showcased how vast the underwater world could be. Its central narrative's reliance on the importance of family gave it a solid emotional hook while Jason Momoa was as badass as ever, once again proving that the DCEU's original iteration of Arthur Curry was one of the things that the shared universe got right.

That said, it was hard to get over the sense of pointlessness in this movie, and the special effects weren't quite up to the level of its predecessor.

25. Batman and Robin

You're probably a bit surprised to see Batman and Robin up this high, and I get why. The movie has a notorious reputation for killing the Batman movie franchise because of its affinity for Bat-Nipples, villainous monologues, neon lights, and ice puns. It featured one of the most star-studded casts, that included the likes of George Clooney, Arnold Schwarzenegger, and Uma Thurman, and yet it has still gone down in history as a critical and commercial disaster.

That being said, the thing that elevates Batman and Robin over the previous entries on this list is that it's a non-stop adventure of just absolute fun. It's senseless, infuriating at times, and a huge step backwards for the Batman film saga, but if you can allow yourself to overlook that fact, you might appreciate it for how absolutely bonkers it is. No, it's not a real Batman movie, but it's an entertaining one. And if you're in need of a good old-fashioned fun adventure, stick this film on.
