Quantum Apostrophe: TheManofPA: 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.[upload.wikimedia.org image 220x342]
violentsalvation: First Contact? Troll harder subtard.
deaccessioned: Without even having seen it, I'll go ahead and nominate The Road to Hell (the upcoming sequel to Streets of Fire) for the list.http://www.roadtohellmovie.com/
jake_lex: 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.

velvet_fog: I think some Farkers are confusing what they think is a 'bad' sequel with what was an 'unnecessary' sequel. Superman III and IV were awful movies, but each film that preceded it was a huge hit - why wouldn't you add another sequel? Same goes with Batman & Robin. Even Blair Witch 2, to a lesser extent. Just because it was horribly executed doesn't mean it was unnecessary. I think an exception is the Jaws series, where Jaws 2 and on were totally unnecessary.To the list, I'd add: Jaws 2, Jaws 3-D, Gremlins 2, Ghostbusters 2, Analyze That, Dirty Dancing: Havana Nights, It Runs in the Family (sequel to A Christmas Story)
show me: 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.
feanorn: NO. G2 was FAR better than the first movie. And not just better, actually fun./Seriously
Darth_Lukecash: There is no Highlander 2.
BravadoGT: Predator 2

whistleridge: thamike: Not only a slideshow, but a busted slideshow. Thanks, subs.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.Deslidified.
The English Major: Lsherm: fark YOU SUBBY! Star Trek: First Contact was a great Trek film!The Borg are terrible villains. The one saving grace of First Contact was Stewart's speech and James Cromwell./will never understand the hate for slideshows
deaccessioned: I'm gonna kill sumbudyDo it in a sledgehammer fight and no sane jury would convict.
Darth_Lukecash: BravadoGT: Highlander 2Predator 2/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.
velvet_fog: It Runs in the Family (sequel to A Christmas Story)
quatchi: 8. I Still Know What You Did Last Summer.
thatguyoverthere70: What would be a challenge (and more interesting) would be to come up with a list of sequels that should have been useless but turned out to be not terrible, good, or even better than the original.
thatguyoverthere70: And good lord, Jaws 4 is so bad it knocks Jaws 3D right off the list.
baka-san: thatguyoverthere70: And good lord, Jaws 4 is so bad it knocks Jaws 3D right off the list.Fun fact, saw Jaws 3D in the theater, with glasses and allYeah, old

SurfaceTension: TuteTibiImperes: It was easily the best of the Next Generation cast movies.Not exactly a high bar to clear.
thatguyoverthere70: I'm a pretty big fan of movies, and I had no idea there was a third Crocodile Dundee movie. Weird.And good lord, Jaws 4 is so bad it knocks Jaws 3D right off the list. That's some primo suckage.As was kind of noted above, pretty much all sequels are useless. How about City Slickers 2: The Legend Of Curly's Gold, King Kong Lives, Weekend At Bernie's 2, or any of the sequels to Tremors and The Crow?I appreciate the attempt at a defense of Godfather 3, but that movie is riddled with problems and is so far below the first two it's hardly worth mentioning. From the hammy Pacino performance to Sofia Coppola that film sucks in so many directions. The lack of Tom Hagen alone makes Godfather 3 seem like the world's most extravagant fan film rather than a genuine continuation of the story.What would be a challenge (and more interesting) would be to come up with a list of sequels that should have been useless but turned out to be not terrible, good, or even better than the original.
t3knomanser: Star Trek: First Contact was a serviceable-but-uninspired action movie. It used a few Star Trek elements, like the holodeck, in creative ways (if you don't think too hard).
t3knomanser: for a generic action movie. I quite liked Lockdown, for example (aka Escape From NY: In SPACE).
