It’s getting to be that time of the year again… time for us to start talking about the best and in this case, the worst movies of 2007. This year gave us some truly awful films (but surprisingly, not as many as last year) that all deserve an honored place on this mighty list.

There is a little bit of everything on this year’s “Worst of” list. Some sequel action, some comedy, some horror… but all of them celebrating sucking. So let us celebrate the suckage together as we are pleased to run down for you The Movie Blog’s 10 Worst Films of 2007.

Worst-2007-#1) SPIDER-MAN 3
There was only 1 film I was looking forward to more in 2007 than Spider-Man 3, and that was Transformers. I really liked the first Spider-Man film… and I thought Spider-Man 2 was one of the best Comic Book movies ever made. No reason to suspect anything less than brilliance for Spider-Man 3 right? RIGHT??? Wrong. Sam Raimi (who I think rules) just ran out of creative gas for this franchise and just mailed it in. Oh how creative… the bad guy is going to get at Spider-Man by kidnapping MJ and hanging her from a high place… just like they did in #2…. just like they did in #1. Emo Spidey. Raping the image of Venom. Stupid story. Needless new side characters. Dance scenes. And ultimately this movie should have been called “Spider-Man 3: MJ’s Career Troubles”, because the film spent far more time on MJ’s struggles as an actress than it did on either villain, including the one we all wanted to see more of. I could go on and on and on and on… but I’ll leave it there. Ladies and Gentlemen, The Movie Blog presents to you the worst film of 2007. Spider-Man 3.

Worst-2007-#2) THE NUMBER 23
Also high on my “anticipated films of 2007? list was this amazing looking thriller with Jim Carrey in the lead. The concept sounded so very good. Carrey himself looked like he would knock this one out of the park. The trailers and images looked fantastic… and then I saw it. Wow… just wow. The whole movie you’re just waiting for something to happen… but it never really does. Ridiculous story “twists”, major continuity problems, and just a total disregard for common sense and the intelligence of the audience. The most boring and painfully slow film of the year… and when it finally gets to the pay off at the end, it just makes it worse. I can understand why Carrey took this role. On the surface it looked like it had a lot of promise… but those promises were dirty dirty LIES (said in high pitched german female voice)!

Worst-2007-#3) THE CONDEMNED
There are certain films that should be no brainers and pretty easy to make. Zombie movies for example. Make some virus, it turns people into zombies, the zombies kill a lot of people… it’s not hard. A simple action film with “Stone Cold Steve Austin” should have been the easiest thing on the planet. Just have lots of over the top action, some witty macho one liners and a few hot chicks. It’s not classic cinema, but it would appeal to your target audience and keep them happy. Well, they screwed it up. Steve Austin should have never opened his mouth in the film, the action was sub-par, and for some reason they tried to integrate a political espionage element with the grieving wife back home sub-plot. Ouch this movie sucked.

Worst-2007-#4) SHREK 3
Another franchise I just adored. 1 was really good, 2 was hilarious, so I had high hopes for Shrek 3. Here’s the thing… if you’re going to have a comedy, then the one thing it absolutely MUST have is laughs. A weak story in a comedy can be forgiven if it has great laughs. Bad acting can be over looked if it has great laughs. Bad pacing, bad direction, bad effects, bad dialog can all be over looked if a comedy movie has great laughs. HOWEVER, you can have everything else in spades… but without the laughs the movie fails. This movie (without exaggeration) had 1 laugh that came near the end of the film. Even the kids didn’t laugh. Such a let down from such a fun franchise.

Worst-2007-#5) DADDY DAY CAMP
Hey everyone, gather around the camp fire. I’m going to tell you a story. It’s a story about a time long ago when Cuba Gooding Jr. actually had a career worth talking about. I know that sounds like a far fetched story… but it’s actually true. This guy even won an Oscar once. But then, some big bad evil agent started feeding Cuba poison apples disguised as scripts, and Cuba ate them up. But seriously, how on earth did any studio anywhere end up liking a pitch that involved a follow up to an Eddie Murphy comedy without Eddie Murphy?!?! Such an awful movie. Cuba, you’re better than this… we’ve all seen what you can do. Wake up and stop eating those damn apples.

Worst-2007-#6) BRATZ
Do you get the irony? A group of plastic teen girls who’s moral message is for young girls to “be themselves” all while trying to convince them to conform to modern popular trends. Oh yeah girls… and dress like sluts too. I’m hardly qualified to be the moral compass of America… but holy crap, if I had a daughter I’d never in a million years let her watch or be influenced by this crap. I’d rather she listen to Manson for heaven’s sake. Unlike Daddy Day Camp, I can understand why a movie like this would get the green light (having such a popular brand following, it was guaranteed to at least make back it’s money) but come on… at least PRETEND like you care about making a half decent movie. Just pretend. We’re not expecting Oscars out of it… just make it so I don’t want to scratch out my eyes when watching it.

Worst-2007-#t7) ARE WE DONE YET?
Yeah, we’ve come a long way my friends from the bad ass mo’ fo’ Ice Cube from straight out of Compton. Now he a neutered wussy bad disney-esque family man comedy whore. This movie was just all kinds of horrible. Every cliche and over used formula and sight gag that could be pulled out of cold storage was used to cheese supremacy. If you’re going to do a film like this, you’ve got to at least make the family endearing… or somewhat believable. Neither were the case here with Are We Done Yet. The one good thing I can say about Are We Done Yet, is that unlike most movies today, it lived up to the potential of the trailer. Yes, it was one of the worst trailers of all time. How on earth this movie made more than $2 million is beyond me.

Worst-2007-#8) FANTASTIC FOUR 2
Hey, I’ve got a great idea! Let’s do a sequel to Fantastic Four… only this time let’s put more cheese into it, take out even more of the action, and let’s do what Spider-Man 3 did by introducing to the screen a character all the comic fans want to see, and then hardly ever have him on the screen… oh… and make sure he doesn’t get into any fights in the movie. Fantastic Four 2 took the failures of the first one, and built on them instead of building on the few things the first one did right. A comic book action movie where the BIGGEST fight was the Fantastic Four vs a Ferris Wheel. Yes, you read that right. The big fight involving the whole Fantastic Four Team was then they has to combat the evil forces of a falling Ferris Wheel. Go team! The film was called “Rise of the Silver Surfer” and yet the Surfer has just a little more screen time in the movie than I did.

Worst-2007-#9) I NOW PRONOUNCE YOU CHUCK AND LARRY
Is it just me, or does it feel like the better and better Adam Sandler is becoming as an actor, the less and less funny his comedies are becoming? It used to be the other way around. Sandler was hilarious but couldn’t act worth beans…. but he’s grown. This past year “Reign Over Me” was one of the best surprise movies of the year and Sandler was brilliant in it… but then comes I Now Pronounce You Chuck And Larry and it seems like Sandler has just totally lost his edge/touch. Ranchy does not equal funny. Raunchy can be funny, it can be very funny. But it’s not an equation. The jokes and feel for this horrible film got really tired about 5 minutes into it. And I’m sorry, but Adam Sandler always beening the great looking, hottest, toughest guy around roles are just too much and are starting to come off as pretty damn narcissistic. The whole movie felt like a great idea for a 7 minute SNL skit… but it got dragged out to almost 2 hours.

Worst-2007-#10) HOSTEL 2
Someone needs to remind Eli Roth that gross does not equal scary. In Hostel 1, Roth gave a nice mixture of grossness with tension and suspense. There was also a mild dash of mystery to it as well. In that kind of environment, torture porn tactics can be VERY effective, and they were in Hostel 1. But for some reason all of that got thrown out the window for Hostel 2, and all we were left with was “He guys, watch this awful thing we’re going to do to this girl”. It becomes nothing but a demonstration of gore without any of the substance of horror to go along with it. So instead of scaring us, it just made us want to cover our eyes. When you do both, it’s classic, when you do just the one, it’s a waste of time. That pretty much sums up Hostel 2… a giant gory waste of time.

AND LET’S NOT FORGET THE DISHONORABLE MENTIONS

Pirates of the Caribbean 3
Licensed To Wed
The Last Legion
Wild Hogs
Norbit
Hitman
Awake
Reno 911: Miami



What do you guys think? Take some off? Put some on?

Bratz only #6?!? It should be higher. Definitely add the debacle that is High School Musical 2 to the list. I'm so sick of that franchise. I disagree with Wild Hogs only because I really enjoyed that movie a lot.

I actually liked The Number 23 and The Condemned.

They should add The Gameplan. That movie was hor-i-ble!

Spiderman 3 is only at the top because it was such a blockbuster.

Totally agree with Bratz. I didn't see it, but I saw the previews and that was enough.

Shrek 3 wasn't great, but it also wasn't horrible.

What about Mr. Woodcock being added to the list? It was funny, but the story line (and everything else) sucked.

I guess I'll go with it... Haven't seen some of them, but they all sound like they suck

EDIT: I couldn't believe how bad the last Pirates of the Caribean was... Well I guess I could believe it, but c'mon... That movie was horrible

Where is 'Who's Your Caddy?'?

Up until recently, it was the worst rated movie in IMDB history (with a minimum of 650 votes)...and just dropped down to #2.

IMDB Bottom 100

...which means that it even sucks at being the worst.

I thought that "I Now Pronounce You Chuck And Larry" was hilarious, but thats just my opinion. I agree 100% otherwise.

The only one I liked from that list was The Condemned. Some I hadn't seen, but most I had, and didn't like.

What? I liked spider man 3, little weird and they didn't pick the right guy to play venom, and I also loved chuck and larry. This list was made by uptight people.

I can't believe how incredibly aweful that movie was

EDIT: That was the one with Morgan Freeman, right?

Yes, that was the steaming pile of crap starring Morgan Freeman and John Cusack.

Whats funny is that the guy who wrote that list actually went and saw all those movies. I mean it doesn't take a ******* genious to do some basic mathematics. Family-friendly premise + Ice Cube = Probably going to suck. What a ******* noob. Lets see, 10 movies, the average movie is an hour and 30 minutes? Congratulations you wasted 13 hours to tell us something we already gathered from the ******* TRAILERS.

Black Snake Moan was a fantastic movie. It was quite acclaimed as well.

I liked spidey 3, Shrek 3, the #23, and Fantastic four 2. SO no I don't agree with this list very much. I thought Pirates 3 was a huge disappointment , with a crappy ending. I also like Hitman , which was on their honorable mention list. It's just a list of some bloggers opinion. I always remember why i don't like critics when I think of Terminator 2. Half the critics were savaging it when it first came out, and I thought it was one of the best movies of the year. The worst movies I saw this year that I can remember offhand were

I pronounce you Chuck and Larry
Dragon wars
the remake of the Hitcher
The pathfinder
the mist
Epic Movie
Evan Almighty
Code name the cleaner
Hannibal rising

but the absolute worst movie I can rememeber attempting to watch this year is
Basic instinct 2- I actually canceled showtime for a month after I watched half this movie , and If I didn't watch entourage ,dexter, and Elite Xc I no longer think I would have HBO or Showtime.

Apperently we have a movie goer! Anyone happend to see No Country for Old men? I like Roger Ebert, he tends not to bash movies because there not his taste like alot of other critics, he'll ussually say "It does what it supposed to".

Surprised Captivity isnt on this list tbh, easily one of the worst films Ive seen in my entire life!

I thought Spidey 3 was pretty good. It was what it was supposed to be. Ditto for Pirates 3.

I didn't like the number 23 at all.

I don't think I saw any ot the other movies on the list.


However, I would like to add 28 Weeks later. I loved the first one. The reviews for the sequel said that you'll like it if you liked the first one. Not the case, IMO. The movie had so many plot flaws that I was literally yelling at the TV.

Yeah, I've always been a big movie guy, but it was worse this past year. I just got to where I could walk again ( without crutches or a cane) after a serious back injury. A lot of the things I would normally do( workout, play sports, paintball etc. ) were out , so I saw waaaaaaaay to many movies.

I liked the number 23, and the condemned was alright, but what keeps it off the list for me is Stone Cold pulling off an armbar.

And I want to see no country for old men, the cohen brothers make some pretty good movies. I wanna see the mist as well because I liked the short story a lot.

I pretty much agree with that list of bad movies actually. Except for one I want to see. I really hated Hannibal rising. It was retarted.
