Movie Shout Outs- Movie Sequel...responses

It's Movie Shout Out Sunday Time!

Yesterday's question was:


What Movie Sequel Took All the Fun Out of the Series For You?

Check out the responses! There seems to have been a lot of frustration built up on this topic..

Fletch Lives (1989) killed the series. Should have used one of the Gregory MacDonald books instead of the crap script they used instead. :(

Alien 3 (1992). Fortunately Alien 4 (1997) was much better.

Spider-man3 (2008). Alien 4 (1997). Batman & Robin (1997) . Before Sunset (2004). The last one because it "ruined" the first one's best part: the ending,w/o sucking itself.

Oh! Spiderman 3(2008)! WTF?!

Batman Forever(1995). Val Kilmer was awful. The only redeeming point was that George Clooney was worse

Before Sunset (2004)
...In the best way possible.

Any horror where there's more than three. ie Saw V (2008), Freddy Vs. Jason (2003) and so forth. I really try to avoid sequels in general. And then we have the "we made money lets make another sans the actors who made the original good/decent," Cruel Intentions and From Dusk Til Dawn. I think i could go on for days...

Technically it is not a "sequel", but it was the fourth movie of the series released...Phantom Menace (1999) because it was ridiculously dull and reduced the story to Home Alone in Space.

X-Men 3 (2006) sucked all of the oxygen out of that world. Then X-Men Origins: Wolverine (2009) punched all of the gasping fans in their stomachs.... Oh no! I completely forgot about S. Darko: A Donnie Darko Tale ( 2009) Possibly the most laughably awful sequel to anything ever.

JAWS 3 in 3-D (1983). The first one was TERRIFYING because of the camera angles, music and shear suspense of it all. The 2nd one was okay, but the 3rd was just cheesy. Scary in all the wrong places, gross for shock value (a severed floating head "came out" into the audience with pus and blood and all) and the 3-D wasn't even that well done.

Godfather Part III (1990)

Superman III (1983)
. I don't think I need to elaborate, do I?
Yvonne B. via Facebook

Shrek the Third (2007)
. I so enjoyed the first two (particularly Shrek 2 (2004) ), but the third was so awful. It's my opinion that the third film in a series usually is bad and often ruins the series (concern about Nolan's Batman is coming to mind).

Man.
You guys pretty much took all mine.
Guess I gotta go 'Bill & Ted's Bogus Journey'?

I don't even really feel THAT strongly about it...

Oh, just thought of another one. Matrix III. Seriously disappointing.

August 2, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterYvonne B.

Yeah, maybe I should've done that one instead. I think the matrix films are a perfect example of better film making through restraint. Giving directors obstacles to work around (like smaller budgets) makes them more creative. The first Matrix was a really creative movie. Each of the sequels budgets were almost triple the budget of the first one.

By far SPIDERMAN 3.. Was a train wreck of a comic book movie, any movie for that matter.

August 7, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterJoe

AGREED!

Spider-Man 3 makes me crazy angry. It sucked ALL the fun out of Spider-man. I haven't even bothered watching Spider-man 2 since 3 came out. I used to love THAT flick, but now I just don't care about the series anymore...
