Stewart has gotten a bad rap as a blank-slate actress, but she’s still been able to deliver some fun performances if you ignore the Twilight series, which sucked the fun out of everybody. However, that list of good performances doesn’t include “Snow White and the Huntsman,” which seemed to limit Stewart to one confused expression.
The film calls for Snow White to get into battles, defeat her enemies, and win the day, but she seems more worried about who will take her to prom, especially when faced with co-stars Charlize Theron and Chris Hemsworth.
Ezra Miller as The Flash in Justice League
Ezra Miller has made waves as a dramatic actor in films such as "We Need to Talk About Kevin," but his turn as the Scarlet Speedster left a lot of people wishing they had picked someone else. He made his first real appearance in "Justice League," but as the witty, fast-acting DC Comics character, he didn't impress.
In fact, plenty of viewers found he came across as annoying and lacking in charisma. He has a chance to redeem himself in "The Flash," a solo movie that may allow him to bring more of his dramatic experience to the role.
Jessica Alba as Sue Storm in Fantastic Four
Superhero movies have a pretty tough history when it comes to casting. Instead of finding actors who have the right physical and emotional attributes, they often try to pick up the hottest names to help get people in seats, which ends up doing a disservice to the movie. Case in point with Jessica Alba in the first attempt at C-list superhero team "Fantastic Four."
She didn't deliver a great performance (Which she blamed on the director), but fans found her unsuitable with blonde hair and blue contacts and would have liked a different actress in the role.
Adam Driver as Kylo Ren in the Star Wars Sequel Series
Who's responsible for this? Tell us, because that person had better start preparing explanations. The experiment is over: Disney Star Wars has failed. Aside from a reasonable Episode 7 and the best Star Wars movie, Rogue One, the new movies have done little to get people excited. Adam Driver falters as one of the sequel trilogy's main villains – though he has the dramatic acting chops, every time he takes his helmet off, which happens more and more as the trilogy progresses, you're reminded it's Driver under that mask.
Despite the filmmaking and writing quality lacking, the casting for the sequel trilogy has mostly been good – but this one stands out as a huge misstep since so many hinges on Kylo Ren's emotions and performance.
Liv Tyler as Arwen in The Lord of the Rings
Peter Jackson's trilogy is one of the greatest things to happen to movies since sound. Most of the casting is perfect beyond the wildest dream, but Liv Tyler as Arwen sticks out. She certainly isn't the worst choice possible and does well as the elf maiden, but the fact that the movies had to add scenes to keep her on the viewer's minds is a bit of a sticking point.
The love story between Arwen and Aragorn is the otherwise flawless trilogy's weakest plotline. Tyler is a capable actress and looks like the beautiful elf maiden, but she's still the weak link, especially alongside Viggo Mortenson and Hugo Weaving.
