Razzie Predictions 2007 (Take 1)

"It's high time somebody started laying bets on which films are sure to be nominated for the Razzie Awards come early next year, and represent the worst the cinema had to offer in 2007. Which is why I've taken this first stab at putting together my own list of Razzie Predictions for 2007!"

Degrassi Junior High “The Big Dance” (part 4 of 4)

"Voula, seeing that asking to go to the dance right now would probably be greeted with the same reaction as if she asked to get an abortion, begins to weave a ridiculous, fully transparent lie. She talks about how there's a 'meeting' at school on Saturday, to do with the foster child. She even says, I kid you not, 'It's just like school, only in the evening!' It's just like school, only with more drugs and booze and sex! How can you say no?"

Fantastic Four (2005) (part 3 of 3)

The Fantastic Four spend almost the entire film mostly cleaning up after their own mistakes. No joke. Every time they spring into action, it's a direct result of one of them doing something dumb. Didn't this seem like a bad, bad idea to anyone? We watch superhero movies to see the heroes being heroic, not bungling things so badly that they cause massive injuries and property damage, if not outright deaths. They should be saving the day, not covering their own asses.

An Interview with Bob Sullivan, Clonus screenwriter

Despite the obvious similarities to Clonus, which I laid out pretty clearly in my review of The Island, the lawsuit itself was a contentious subject among fans of the two films. Now comes word that the issue has been put to rest, more or less, as has the lawsuit. According to an inside source, Clonus Associates v. DreamWorks was settled out of court in late 2006, reportedly for a seven-figure sum to be paid to Clonus Associates.

Razzie Weekend 2007, Part 1: Lady in the Water, Little Man

I've been promising to do this for years, but for some reason I just never get around to it. Well, I'm sure one reason is the idea of sitting through five awful films in the space of one weekend is enough to make me go, hmm, don't I have some toilet scrubbing to do? But as one of the preeminent Bad Movie-ologists on the web (and by the web, I mean my own mind), I felt it was necessary to at least poke my head up from my steady diet of awful cinema of the '60s, '70s, and '80s. It was time to discover the State of the Bad Movie in 2006.
