We're basically at the halfway point of 2014, and so far Hollywood's record has been rather mixed. We've had many great movies like Blue Ruin, The Grand Budapest Hotel and Coherence, but there's also been a lot of absolute garbage. We asked our readers to select their least favorite movies of the year so far. Click through to see the results.

2. ‘The Amazing Spider-Man 2’

Enough with the Spider-Man already. Five movies in 12 years is just too much. This new one suffered from villain bloat and simple audience exhaustion with the character. Reviews were less than kind for this one, though it did make a huge pile of money and two more sequels are slated. What happens when this runs dry, through? Do they reboot for a second time? Are we as a people doomed to face an endless series of Spider-Man movies until the end of time? Can anything stop it?

1. ‘Godzilla’

We were a little surprised to see Godzilla win this poll. Nobody expected yet another Godzilla reboot to be Citizen Kane, but director Gareth Edwards and screenwriter Max Borenstein were smart to turn this into a disaster movie as opposed to a mere monster flick. It's light years above the abysmal 1998 Godzilla, though some people did complain about the pacing. It did take a little while to get to the monsters. Those of you that didn't like this one will probably hate the inevitable sequels. These things tend to get worse as they go on.
