Jupiter Ascending
The gravity skates didn't really bother me - on the 'good' side, it was a break from the 'let's do yet another version of whatever the popular SF trope of the year is' syndrome that is endemic to Hollywood. And the ships and tech (with all the free flying bits) were pretty cool.

On the bad side, the plot was such that I really couldn't work up the energy to care (and I'm usually incredibly forgiving of nearly any SciFi film's quirks and weak bits). Sure, the fate of the whole (Earth living) human race was theoretically hanging in the balance, but the way things were presented, that was almost treated as a throwaway line. The main theme that was on display here was 'a soap opera in space, with occasional fight scenes'.
