The Lordy Award for Derivativeness in Fantasy
The Seeker: The Dark is Rising - Oct 5, 2007
It looks like an episode of Gilmore Girls, but the word on the street is this attempt at a new fantasy adaptation franchise is more than that.

The Pyscho II Award for Unnecessariness in a Sequel
Elizabeth: The Golden Age - Oct 12, 2007Are you fucking kidding me? They got Cate Blanchett to come back to play Queen Elizabeth again nine years after the first movie? Wonderful, and it's only one year after a boring BBC miniseries about Queen Elizabeth that won a shitload of awards. Don't you stupid British fucks have like 50 queens you could be doing movies about? PICK A DIFFERENT FUCKING QUEEN. Christ, do a movie about the band Queen. Anything.
