I'll try to give justification for them...and where they went wrong.
RIPD - Good concept, bad production made it seem like Dead people MIB. Role originally written for Zach Galifanakis went Jeff Bridges which is fine but shows how poorly this movie was written out.
After Earth - Coming of age movie, sci-fi. Could have been a nice solid action movie but letting actors decide that their children should be stars as well is a recipe for disaster.
White House Down - Popcorn movie. I really don't see anything wrong with it except for it being one of too many.
Pacific Rim - Just stop making it dark and neon. It didn't need to look like a Daft Punk video and drop the two as one concept. It would have worked fine as a simple action movie but the mechanics were overly complicated.
Lone Ranger - Don't hire Johnny Depp, don't make it a comedy, let the Lone Ranger be not only good but great at what he does. Good westerns are rare since Tombstone and Unforgiven but 3:10 to Yuma was alright. If anything the time is ripe for a few good westerns and maybe a trilogy of lone gunman-type movie franchise.
Honestly the movies largely suffered from overcrowding and poor writing. The Harry Potter and Hunger Games series aren't stellar reads and in 20 years won't hold up against Hemingway or Tolkien but they have coherent plots and likable characters which goes farther than most. I really feel atleast RIPD and the lone ranger were salvagable at an IP level. The others probably should be let out to pastor.
