fck shitty sequels

I have been inspired by our conversations about x-men3 to speak about shitty sequels, triloges, and other types of extentions that have plagued our great nation. Matrix 2 and 3, X-men 3, Star Wars episode 1-3, Scary Movie sequels(doesnt really count but whatever), Charles' Angels 2(worst movie ever), etc. Beside Star Wars Episode 5 and 6, and the LOTR trilogy, cant really think of any great ones. This thread is for us to voice our grievences about this issue.

Re: fck shitty sequels

The Godfather II,Terminator 2, and Aliens were really good, IMO, and there are a couple of other sequals that I like. For the most part though, movie studios just need to know when to let go!

It seems like every decent movie now has to become a franchise instead of just a good stand alone movie.

F the Jaws sequels. They forever taint the memory of one of my favorite movies.

It is all about the money that is why is they have shitty sequels. AH YES, almost forgot to mention MI:2, one of the worst movies I have ever seen as well. Don't know about MI:3, but it seems like its only going to be alot of action, and a shitty movie.

well technically batman begins is a prequel, but i thought it was very good.

I think it counts though since it was like the 5th batman movie and the 3rd and 4th ones were both god awful.

I also liked Men in Black, and I saw MIB:2, and it made me quite upset.

What's the problem? You didn't think Alicia Silverstone had some Oscar-quality acting?

Re: fck shitty sequels

rush hour 2 is awesome. I like MI2 more than MI 1, though i haven't seen either for a while. The austin power sequels were really good. I liked spiderman 2 more than 1.

MI2 is better than MI 1????? Are you kidding me.....I also feel the Austin Power sequels went downhill, and its wierd bc I really hated goldmember, I thought it was terrible, but thats just me. I agree with everything else, but MI 2!?!....ahh i cant believe it..lol

Re: fck shitty sequels

The Ring 2 pretty much sucked. Now that I think about it, it ripped off the Omen pretty bad. There is a scene where they're in a car that gets attacked by all the elk; it would have been kind of cool if they didn't look so ridiculously fake.

Man, I thought you were saying it was bad. I kept thinking "that guy has lost it" Batman Begins I think is the best of the comic book movies. It creates the most realistic set circumstances possible of all the comic book movies. I know a lot of the super fans like the more comic book/fantasy type feel to the movies but I like a more realistic feel. Showing how Batman could "fly" and do all the things he could do was cool. And the story line was fantastic. One of my favorite movies really.

Maybe i should watch the MIs again. I have them both. I stayed up all night watching movies so i could watch them. Over the past day I watched, in order, bad boys II, snatch, Analyze this, analyze that, armageddon, and scarface. I am tring to find gone in sixty seconds and then I am going to watch all of the star wars and after that I'll squeeze in the MIs.


bad boys II > Bad boys I

I just wish they hadn't used Katie Holmes. They had an incredible cast that she just didn't belong with. However, even she couldn't take away from the fact that it was a very good movie.

I still think the worst sequel ever has got to be The Fast and the Furious, or as I like to call it, Point Break 2:the reckoning. The script was bascially just changed so that instead of surfing they were street racing and instead of the robbers knocking over banks they were stealing trucks. Other than that the movies were almost identical.
