What other Matrix film? I wouldn't count Animatrix as a sequel either; it was good anime followup though. Not sure what other one you are referencing.

Caine famously quipped, "I have never seen it, but by all accounts it is terrible. However, I have seen the house that it built, and it is terrific!

I love that quote.

I don't think that there was a franchise to really kill for some of those.

Son of the Mask and Blues Brothers 2000 came out long after the originals, and it's not like there were other ones in between.

That said, a Mask movie that was as farked up as the comics would be fun.

True.  The only thing franchise-y about BB2K is that it coincides with the early building up of the House of Blues franchise.

I often hear about movie sequels everyone said were bad and wonder, "is it really that bad? I loved the original, I should give it a chance!" Blues Brothers 2000, which I still have yet to see, is not one of those sequels.

By all means, take the time to whine about it, but don't do the rest of us a favor and take 5 whole seconds to deslide it. Truly, that would be a waste of your stellar intellect and precious resources.

You gotta put The Godfather Part III on this list.  It's actually not as terrible as people say it is, but it is completely and utterly useless, because the first two tell such a perfect story and finish the story of Michael Corelone in the most important way.  At the end of Part I, Michael becomes Don Corleone, and at the end of Part II, it becomes clear that his promises to Kay notwithstanding, he will never become legitimate and he will always be Don Corleone.

Then comes Part III and a lot of nonsense about whacking the Pope or whatever the hell happened in that movie.

jake_lex: You gotta put The Godfather Part III on this list.


Seconded.

"Useless sequel" to me implies that the original movie was good or useful is some way. Godfather I and II definitely qualify.

By that definition a couple of the movies that spawned those sequels on that list don't qualify.

/Looking at you, Crocodile Dundee.

Not exactly a high bar to clear.

However, I have to say I loved both Matrix sequels. Reloaded more so than Revolutions, but I'm not adverse to either.

Heavy Metal 2000...

(auctally kind liked it,, but anything to do with Carl Macek is to be derided)

I agree. Both of the Abrahms movies are better than the TNG ones, though First Contact may rank up as an equal.

It was definitely better than Generations and Star Trek Into Darkness.  God that last one was mediocre.

But then I shouldn't judged. I enjoyed Indiana Jones and The Crystal Skull.  Didn't enjoy Temple of Doom.

/got nothin'


There was no Highlander 2.  I've never heard of it.  Seen it. When I google it, the screen goes black, the room darkens and I hear a primal scream of terror and wake up on the floor in a fetal position, sobbing.

There is no Highlander 2.

The three movies actually work together in a "tragedy" sense.  Thematically, it worked really well.  But part of Michael Corleone attraction was that he always came out on top, despite rough times and drastic losses.

Michaels final push to become completely legitimate and protect his family is undone by the choices he made in life.  For killing his brothers, his ultimate suffering was the loss of his daughter, his rejection by his son,  the continuation of the family crime ways and outliving everyone he loved.

On top of that...the one honest man he tried to protect, the pope, was murdered. He was perhaps the one man who could have led Michael to redemption and salvation. His way of life finally caught up to him in the final act.

And people really hated it because Michael finally had to pay for his sins.  That and it was rushed into production, something that even Coppla admits that he really wanted do do a few more drafts.  He also had to deal with the fact that Al Pichino and Diane Keaton broke up during the filming, where the original script had Kaye and Michael reuniting. After their brake up, they had to rewrite that subplot because there was no way Keaton and Picino could be romanitic.

[upload.wikimedia.org image 220x342]


That actually came out a year before Matrix. The worse part of it was the fact they had an "explain everything" narration in front of the movie, instead of rolling it out within them movie.
 
2013-07-14 08:53:06 PM  
No, you're thinking of all the other Star Trek movies after IV. First Contact was pretty good; it's probably the reason Trek stayed relevant for the rest of the 90s.
 
2013-07-14 08:55:23 PM  
Of the list, I've only seen US Marshals and Blair Witch 2 - I enjoyed US Marshals in an inconsequential popcorn Sunday night cable movie way and I actually prefer Blair Witch 2 to the original - it may have been cliched and silly but at least it wasn't boring.
 
2013-07-14 08:56:42 PM  
Ghostbusters 2
Both Matrix sequels
Really any Jaws sequel
Superman 3 and 4
Batman Returns
Batman Forever
Batman and Robin
Star Trek: Insurrection
Star Trek: Nemesis
Highlander 2

There, I just crapped out a better list than the link had...that was a tough 5 minutes
