  72. Movie DetailsExterminating Angels, The (2007) 6  FantasyObscure/RareWith Sex/Nudity

    An orphaned musical prodigy uses his gift to help find his birth parents. Overtly sentimental.

  84. Movie DetailsMist, The (2007) 5  HorrorSci-Fi
    A fairly derivative, depressing creature-horror film with too much religious ranting. Final scene is staggering.

  88. Movie DetailsSuperstorm (2007) 5  Obscure/RareSci-FiTV Shows

  92. Movie DetailsMacbeth (2007) CRAP  Obscure/RareWith Sex/Nudity
    Bad acting with laser-sighted guns, drugs and tattooed naked girls. A straight retelling of Shakespeare.
  93. Movie DetailsPrey (2007) CRAP  HorrorObscure/RareDocumentary/True
    A poorly written movie about Americans in Africa who are stalked by lions. Embarrassingly bad.
  94. Movie DetailsP.S. I Love You (2007) CRAP
