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.

Razzie Weekend 2007, Part 2: BloodRayne, The Wicker Man, Basic Instinct 2

It's a lesson I've learned time and time again: People will slam movies purely because of who's in them. When forgettable films like Crossroads or Glitter or From Justin to Kelly make it onto the IMDb's list of the 100 worst films of all time, you know people are voting based on the magazine covers at the checkout stand. Same with the films nominated for the Razzie this year. If not for the presence of Sharon Stone, the Wayans brothers, Nicolas Cage, M. Night Shyamalan, and (to a much lesser extent) Uwe Boll, would anybody give two shits about any of these movies? Probably not.
