The complete and utter fail involved in putting together a list like this and not including  Remo Williams: The Adventure Begins  is awe-inspiring. In some cultures, a mandatory suicide would be necessary and expected.

I have explained the same thing to my kids.
1 matrix movie
Star wars and 2 sequels
now my daughter is older, I have also explained that Anne Rice only wrote 1 book.

But back to the sucky list which sucks. It sucks and is a list of crap which shouldn't have been made in the first place let alone have a sequel (except for Incredibles, which should have been made but any sequels would probably been turd sandwiches minus the bread)

I know, they had plans to make a prequel and a sequel, but unfortunately that never got off the ground.  Would have been cool to hear the history of the matrix and see where the story would have gone now that Neo is The One.  Too bad the studio was a bunch of farktards and prevented that from happening...

Don't even get me started on the sequel to Ghostbusters that was supposed to be made, unfortunately they canned it for having just an AWFUL script and story...

Godzilla did get a sequel. But it was an animated TV series that dealt with exactly what they movie left us with. Baby Godzilla becoming a good monster and killing bad and alien monsters.

And that wasn't a setup for a sequel. It was just showing that life went on and the Incredibles were now a team.

Blocked at work... I see from the comments that Remo Williams was missed, did they include Buckaroo Banzai? Because Buckaroo Banzai ENDS with an explicit promise of a sequel, if they missed including it the list is fail.
 
2013-03-05 09:24:07 AM  
The only one I'd pay money to see is Buckaroo Banzai.

The producers of the Golden Compass gutted the important parts of the book because Evangelical Christianity, so I'm even clear how they would be able to do the planned sequels unless they were completely unrelated to the original story.  It's a shame, as the casting was good and the original screenplay was by Tom Stoppard.

Yep. Never saw the end of Incredibles as setting up a sequel. It's just letting you know that life is back to how things were at the beginning of the movie where superheros are no longer banned.

Putting in setups for sequels to horror movies also don't count in my book. Horror movies almost always leave the possibility of a sequel open.

They tried to make it into a TV series, but only got as far as the pilot which was terrible.

And speaking of TV series, I'm still pissed-off that they canceled Carnivale after just 2 seasons, and left it in a huge cliffhanger at the end of season 2.  Too expensive to produce.  I canceled my HBO subscription right after that.

FAIL.

Buckaroo Banzai was never meant to have a sequel, it was just a tongue in cheek nod to the audience.
The crew barely managed to get the movie made due to how zany (yet awesome) it was. The studio financed more as a "y'know, what? Go away".

That and so they could repackage some of its elements as a fancier product in Back to the Future... C'mon, you thought we'd never notice?

I don't know which "one hit movie" you're talking about, so I'll mention A Clockwork Orange and 2007's Halloween. He was also in Tank Girl, Caligula, Milk Money, The Player and Blue Thunder, but those aren't hits (maybe Tank Girl for the cult status?), or his roles aren't that big (I haven't seen any of those latter films save for Tank Girl).

Uh, no.  Just, no.  That was an offense to humanity that Hollywood should've been nuked from orbit for...repeatedly.


The only thing wrong with that movie is that it has the name "Godzilla".

Let me sort of step that back:  It's not Oscar material, obviously, but then most movies with giant monsters aren't.  It is a very respectable giant monster movie, however.

The problem is that it was named "Godzilla".   Had it been named something like "The Monster That Ate New York", or whatever, it wouldn't have been hated by fans of Gojira (of which I am one, and have been since I was 6 years old).

The acting and story was better than 90% of the Japanese films, the special effects were better, the actual science in the movie was better than any Japanese Godzilla film including the original, the motivations of the monster were better set forth ("He's not some monster trying to evade you. He's just an animal. If you find what he wants, then he'll come to you."), and the offspring were very dangerous and not some attempt to be "cute" like Minilla.

I'm a big fan of Gojira/Godzilla, and honestly, while I don't care that much for the design of the creature in the 1998 film, it is a decent enough take on the traditional (and biomechanically wrong) design of Gojira.  I would have liked a more Millenium series look to him, but I can live with Zilla.

Lodz' whole arc was changed because of HBO's redheaded stepchild treatment. He was supposed to live and be aligned with Brother Justin in secret, but they killed him and made him a phantom instead.

exparrot: Roddy McDowall played Chiun in the TV show, not Malcolm McDowell.


I'm not familiar with the source material (Roddy Piper in the Remy Williams: Man of Action TV programme), but I took exception to someone saying that Malcolm McDowell hasn't done anything good.

I, for one, loved him as Dr. Loomis.

A lot of those on the list have little to do with "SEQUEL" and more to do with "Bad end". Night of the Creeps and Stay Alive, for instance. The point is to end with "oh sure, this was a temporary victory, but now everyone is BONED". The Godzilla one is bunk too; it's a common monster movie trope to have "and the egg hatches" or implication it's not over.

And the Incredibles ending was handled in a video game.

So, FAIL list.

My wife read the books and said they were good, but that movie was terrible. It felt like tried to mash way too much stuff into it, it just kept jumping from place to place, scene to scene, long before you had a chance to any attachment to the characters or their plight.


Yup, I loved the books but the movie was a steaming pile.  Plus they give away plot points from the 2nd and 3rd books in the 1st movie.  I didn't even get around to finishing the movie it was such a disappointment. :(

miscreant: Putting in setups for sequels to horror movies also don't count in my book. Horror movies almost always leave the possibility of a sequel open.

That's not the only reason for the open endings.  The nature of the genre is that there is no pat happy ending.  It's scarier if the threat is still out there.

/Didn't really expect a sequel to Stay Alive, because there really wasn't a way they could develop the story more.
//There was supposed to be a The Ring 3 but that never went through.  Frankly they should have left it as a stand-alone.

Yes, the article quotes Brad Bird as saying that they'll make a sequel to "The Incredibles" when they feel like they have a good enough script.

And no, "Buckaroo Banzai" had no connections to any other movie.

On the subject of "Buckaroo Banzai"...I don't know how I feel about that movie. It's hard to sit through. I can't watch it all the way through (I have once or twice). But at the same time, it has so much style, and so many great (and weird) lines, that I still think of it as a good movie. Or at least, a really interesting failure.

dittybopper: Rwa2play: dittybopper: Pocket Ninja: The complete and utter fail involved in putting together a list like this and not including  Remo Williams: The Adventure Begins  is awe-inspiring. In some cultures, a mandatory suicide would be necessary and expected.

Agreed, but they get points for including the 1998 Godzilla.

Uh, no.  Just, no.  That was an offense to humanity that Hollywood should've been nuked from orbit for...repeatedly.

The only thing wrong with that movie is that it has the name "Godzilla".

Let me sort of step that back:  It's not Oscar material, obviously, but then most movies with giant monsters aren't.  It is a very respectable giant monster movie, however.

The problem is that it was named "Godzilla".   Had it been named something like "The Monster That Ate New York", or whatever, it wouldn't have been hated by fans of Gojira (of which I am one, and have been since I was 6 years old).

The acting and story was better than 90% of the Japanese films, the special effects were better, the actual science in the movie was better than any Japanese Godzilla film including the original, the motivations of the monster were better set forth ("He's not some monster trying to evade you. He's just an animal. If you find what he wants, then he'll come to you."), and the offspring were very dangerous and not some attempt to be "cute" like Minilla.

I'm a big fan of Gojira/Godzilla, and honestly, while I don't care that much for the design of the creature in the 1998 film, it is a decent enough take on the traditional (and biomechanically wrong) design of Gojira.  I would have liked a more Millenium series look to him, but I can live with Zilla.


Yeah, had that been named "Cloverfield" then...I wouldn't be so adamantly against it and enjoyed it as a monster movie.

Buckaroo Banzai was never meant to have a sequel, it was just a tongue in cheek nod to the audience.
The crew barely managed to get the movie made due to how zany (yet awesome) it was. The studio financed more as a "y'know, what? Go away".

That and so they could repackage some of its elements as a fancier product in Back to the Future... C'mon, you thought we'd never notice?


you're the FAIL. They had every plan for a SQL, but the rights were bought by someone who hated the franchise and shut it down.Since then, the rights are an absolute legal morass.

It didn't need help shooting itself in the feet. I think there was a fundamental disunity of vision going into the production -- they weren't quite sure what age group they were aiming for.

There were plenty of scenes that were downright cartoonish and could only have worked in a kid's movie. At the same time, the book is frightfully dark and better suited for the young adult crowd than the pre-12 crowd.

First movie I paid (out the nose, I might add) to see in theatres on opening night in a long time. What a disappointment.

The thing that got me about that sequel was that in Daredevil it was a 'real world' universe where a guy develops super hearing, something not wildly unbelievable. Then in the Garner film we suddenly had tattoos that could come to life and invisible ninjas and shiat. It didn't make sense that they were in the same universe.

You do have to wonder what Bird's future in animated features will be like now that he's done a live action film and is slated for a couple more.  Something like The Incredibles 2 would probably require a 4-5 year commitment.  So it's reasonable to think he'd stay in live action for a while since he could potentially work on more projects.

MyKingdomForYourHorse: Mentat: Skyline

I hated that movie so much I wished for anyone that might even mention it to get a kick in the balls so that its very existence can be wiped from the face of the earth.


It's one of the few movies I've watched that had me shouting "You have GOT to be kidding me!" and "Movie bad!" at the ending.

ThatBillmanGuy: I guess A Series of Unfortunate Events wasn't popular enough to make this list.


Worst movie ever made. Standard by which all other bad movies are measured. Your efforts to convince otherwise are pointless.

For a sense of measure, 'Enchanted' twitched the Snicketometer.

I think we can both agree that all three movies are considered the worst movies ever

And here's a list from RiffTrax. Both are on their list too.

yves0010: And here's a list from RiffTrax. Both are on their list too.


RiffTrax is not listing worst films, it is listing most hated films, which is not showing the same thing. THere is allot of bias to more recent movies in any vote like that.

You really need a set of non-biased judges who have to watch, and carefully evaluate all the films to judge which is worse.  But I will say this, I own a copy of Plan 9 and have seen Battlefield Earth, and Plan 9 is worse, much.

The plot of Battlefield Earth makes more sense, and the special effects are decent for their day as opposed to plan 9's special effects.

ol' gormsby: Can't believe Blade Runner hasn't been mentioned yet. I mean, the filmmakers didn't actually imply a sequel, but we all want to know what happens to Deckard & Rachel when Gaff is ordered to retire them.

And Malcolm McDowell was also in "If", "Get Crazy", and "Time after time" - all of them worth watching.

"If' for the scenes of english public-school discipline.
"Get Crazy" for Electric Larry and Lou Reed
"Time after time" also has David Warner and Mary Steenburgen


He's only in it for maybe 15 minutes bookending the flashback, but Malcolm McDowell does great, great work as "Old Paul Bettany" in Gangster No. 1. Highly entertaining British crime movie - especially recommended for fans of The Long Good Friday, Michael Caine's Get Carter, and Bronson.

As far as movies that were set up for sequels but never got them, I see that all of my favorites have already been hit: Remo Williams: The Adventure Begins (it's right there in the title!), Master and Commander: The Far Side of the World, which had only about A 20 NOVEL SERIES to draw from, and The Adventures of Buckaroo Banzai Across the 8th Dimension, which had way too awesome of a cast to be used only once.

Making the Grade ... In the closing it says something to the affect to look for Eddie and Palmer in the next movie. Never happened.

//Yes it's a real movie and yes I thought it was funnier than hell.
