From the movies pictured above and from the movies being considered, I rank from "worst" to "OK":

Daddy Day Camp
Who's Your Caddy?
Are We Done Yet?
The Hitcher (2007)
Hannibal Rising
Dead Silence (rip off of Magic)
Hostel Part II
Saw IV
Elizabeth: The Golden Age
P2 (rip off of Throttle)
Resident Evil: Extinction
Halloween (2007)
Evan Almighty
The Invasion
Fantastic Four: Rise of the Silver Surfer
Pirates of the Caribbean: At Whirlie's End (they even have a whirlie at the end of the movie!)
Spider-Man 3

Did I miss any?  Anyone have a different opinion (duh)?

Since it qualifies as BOTH a sequel (to "Are We There Yet?") AND a remake/rip-off (of the old Cary Grant movie "Mr. Blandings Builds His Dream House") I'd have to vote for the execrable "Are We Done Yet?" -- a movie populated exclusively with idiots, stereotypes and excruciatingly UN-funny "gags"... 

CLOSE RUNNER-UP: "Daddy Day Camp," featuring the most horrifying convention of hideous child actors ever assembled in one film!!!   

Response from Head RAZZberry: As someone has never had much patience with grating child actors, I too found DADDY DAY CAMP to be one of the more excrutiating movies of the year. And isn't it ironic that DDC was directed by one of the few recent child actors who wasn't grating in most of his childhood performances, potential Worst Director nominee Fred Savage...

Everything SUX!

I hated The Hitcher!!! Well, that's really the only one that I thought was bad...and I haven't seen every movie this year. So I'm not sure it would be the worst if I would've seen all those other movies...

In terms of a "fouled-up follow-up," it would be hard to top "Hannibal Rising" for its come-down from the original 1991 "Silence of the Lambs." That film was not only a monster box office hit, it was also just about the only "horror movie" ever to win a Best Picture Oscar. In the "Hannibal" films since, the quality has tumbled at an alarming rate, to where this latest entry, a pointless "prequel," was little more than a pale imitation of the whole "Saw/Hostel" sub-genre of blood-n-guts "dismember-tain-ment." 

How very sad... 

Response from Head RAZZberry: Maybe we can take some solace from the fact that HANNIBAL RISING all but totally BOMBED at the box office. Here's a LINK to check out its anemic numbers at B.O. MoJo...

Spider-Man 3 and Pirates 3: At Worlds End were parts of series, and thus shouldn't be considered traditional "sequels." They continue unresolved storylines and bring them to their conclusions.

However, we have plenty of truly unnessesary (and truly Razz-able) sequels and remakes to work with this year, which should keep us busy enough that we need not worry about the Spider-Man franchise.

Response from Head RAZZberry: I personally found the third entries in both the SPIDER-MAN and PIRATES "series" overloud, overlong and underwhelming. Guess it's up to our Voting Members to decide come nominations time whether they rise (or stoop) to the level of actually being worthy RAZZIE contenders. And, yes, there certainly IS an awful lot of other dreck to choose from this year...

I would agree that Spiderman and Pirates were disappointing efforts. Nonetheless, a logical justification can be offered for each. Pirates was the third part of a planned trilogy (which will likely continue on beyond that) and Spiderman is a lucrative franchise. As long as the rubes keep forking over the cash, keep dangling the bait in front of them... even if you have to waterboard your audience with Kirsten Dunst's singing voice.

But Daddy Day Camp set a whole new standard for cinematic roadkill. Did ANYONE out there ask for a sequel to Daddy Daycare? Did Cuba Gooding Jr. really read that script and say to himself, "Wow, this will help my career." This one surely deserves a nod for Worst Sequel, if only as a public service: We might just prevent Gooding Jr. from jumping at making a sequel to Pluto Nash!

Well, Spiderman 3 and Pirates 3 should NOT be on there. Sure, Spiderman 3 was underwhelming (why did Venom appear so late in the film?) and Pirates 3 was incredibly confusing and really long. But there are many more crappier sequels released this year, like Daddy Day Camp

So, speaking of the worst remake or sequel this year, my list would have to be the above mentioned Daddy Day Camp, as well as Hannibal Rising, and the second Fantastic 4 movie...

You evil person. FF2 was a great movie. It was harmless family fun.

Well, let's see why FF2 was not too good.

1. Jessica Alba's stiff acting
2. Bad science (just like with the first Fantastic Four)

That's enough to have at least a thread in this forums.

Don't forget:

3.  Making Galactus look like a gigantic dust bunny (I know HeadRAZZBerry said it first, but I can't think of another apt description).

Just because FF:RotSS had its moments, and just because I rate far and away more movies worse than it, doesn't mean that it wasn't, on the whole, a bad movie.

First of all, I happen to know that thomsonmg2000 is not a fundamentally evil person. He just plays one on the board now and again.

Second, FF2 was not entirely harmless. The 20 bucks it drained out of my wallet stung for 3 full days.

Spider-Man 3 deserves the WORST SEQUEL OR PREQUEL AWARD. It was boring, long, and uninteresting.

Response from Head RAZZberry: Not to mention it forced us to sit through likely Worst Actress contender Kirsten Dunst SINGING -- More than once!!

I found "Spider-Man 3" to be good. The running time was too long and Kirsten Dunst was horrific. Even she admitted it.

Hostel Part II seems to be a rip off of more than just the original Hostel...but of an old Lights Out episode on radio titled It Happened (dated 380511)...

Makes you wonder if the writers were fans of the show...and if they weren't...WHY did they have to do it???
