Super Duper Bad: The Worst Films of 2007

From Good Luck Chuck to Julie Taymor's ill-advised Beatlesque '60s tribute Across the Universe, PopMatters presents the dreck of 2007.

Reviews

Next

Suspense and that familiar adrenaline rush come with creativity, not clock crunching. Next fails to fully understand this, and ends up paying for it in the end.

I Now Pronounce You Chuck and Larry (2007)

Ving Rhames gets that Duncan can be gay, and not have to be a fulltime "flamer," in the film's parlance.

Reviews

I Now Pronounce You Chuck and Larry (2007)

This gay marriage movie isn’t really ready to deal with the overriding disputes that arise whenever civil rights and civil unions become part of the human dialogue.

Film

Monkey Business (Part 3: July)

Finally, a month with only one remaining series contender. All wizard based Potter-y aside, this will be the most tenuous time for the business called show. After a strong start, the eccentric collection of entertainments here could make or break this potentially record shattering motion picture season.

Reviews

Next (2007)

The film doesn’t try to explain or rationalize its essential trick, but drops you rather perfunctorily into Cris' multiple dilemmas.

Reviews

The Illusionist (2006)

This charming film occupies a place somewhere between Merchant Ivory and M. Night Shyamalan.

Home of the Brave (2006)

You pretty much know what's about to happen in Irwin Winkler's utterly sincere and poorly executed look at veterans' troubles readjusting to the World.

The Illusionist (2006)

If The Illusionist's allegory isn't subtle, it is timely: those who seem authorities are illusionists, administering by entertainments.

The DVD of Elizabethtown is called the Widescreen Special Collector's Edition, though there's not one thing special about it.

Elizabethtown (2005)

Cameron Crowe's Elizabethtown does not know how to end.

Stealth (2005)

Kara's a lovely, leggy, perfectly made-up figure whose primary purpose is to provide moral framing for the boys' brilliant strikes and calculations.

Blade: Trinity: Unrated Version (2004)

All this stuff only emphasizes that the film is a mighty endeavor and the kids trained long and hard.

Blade: Trinity (2004)

Blade (Wesley Snipes) looks tired. I mean, weary. He's been fighting vampires for three films now, and it shows.

The Texas Chainsaw Massacre (2003)

One by one, the kids wander inside the Terrible Place, and all but one can't escape.

The Rules of Attraction (2002)

Attraction is not comprised of rules, only missed opportunities.
