karmachameleon: Compare that to, say, the explanation of how Neo "freed" Agent Smith. Funny, upon watching the first movie I'd be strongly tempted to use the word "destroyed", not "freed". ;-)
ZeroCorpse: ALL the old Star Trek movies after Star Trek IV were crappy and hokey. Star Trek IV is also hokey, but it at least has a somewhat fun script. Every single Next Generation movie is cheesy as hell. The later OT crew movies were comedies, not scifi.People who complain about the Trek reboot need to be reminded of the action-comedy travesties that were the last five pre-reboot Trek films.
blue_2501: First Contact? Now you're just trolling. Granted, the TNG movies weren't epic, but this was one of the better ones. (ST6 is still the best one.)
mechgreg: Jim from Saint Paul: Well Temple of Doom has more bullshiat then TCS, so that's fair. i am not telling people to stop liking what I don;t like, I am saying "If you think the fridge was rediculous, A GUY GETS HIS HEART PULLED OUT OF HIS CHEST AND LOOKS AT IN HORROR FOR A WHILE BEFORE HE DIES in that frickin movie"./dont get me started on the "fall hundreds of feet land on a raft and go down a mountain scene//Good lord///TCS does not have a monopoly on rediculously stupid scenes in that seriesI think Roger Ebert said somewhere on his website that the first 3 Indy movies had the advantage in that they came first. I mean if Crystal Skull had come out in 1984 and Temple of Doom in 2008, and cast them accordingly, people would probably look back at CS fondly while people would be biatching non-stop online about The Temple of Doom and the life raft, and the heart ripping, and whatever hollywood kid they got to play Short Round and whatever actress they got to play Willie. Not to mention all the racist stereotypes.

blue_2501: The TFA's list seems to be spot on. Some of these comments are not:The Matrix Reloaded was a badass movie with some of the best action ever. (Still has the best car chase scene of any movie.) Was parts of it kinda corny? Maybe. Revolutions was pretty disappointing, especially the further it went along. (First 30 minutes wasn't bad.)First Contact? Now you're just trolling. Granted, the TNG movies weren't epic, but this was one of the better ones. (ST6 is still the best one.)Gremlins 2? This is just proof that you haven't seen it. Awesome movie.Ghostbusters 2? Was it better than Ghostbusters? No, but it's hard to reach that high. It was still a good movie, though.Tron: Legacy? Olivia Wilde, cool special effects, great soundtrack, good story, oh, and Olivia Wilde. Also, the original Tron has not aged well.
BravadoGT: Highlander 2Predator 2
CraicBaby: Let's also add Cars 2 to the list. It was totally unnecessary.
TheManofPA: What other Matrix film?
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.
velvet_fog: It Runs in the Family (sequel to A Christmas Story)
quatchi: 8. I Still Know What You Did Last Summer.
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)
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.
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.
The English Major: /will never understand the hate for slideshows
