MmmmBacon: "A Christmas Story 2" is something parents tell their children about, in order to scare them into going to bed and leaving them alone long enough to maybe have sex once a month. It is an abomination, not a sequel, and thus not fit to be on this list.

"A Christmas Story 2" never happened. Just like how The Matrix had no sequels, Rocky never fought Tommy Gunn and Nursing Home Honeys IV: Gang Bingo? Gang BANGO wasn't laden with continuity errors.

Thunderdome was fine. The 3 Indiana jones movies were fine. But Reindeer Games 2 was a bridge too far.

I keep telling people, quit doing that whole shop-worn "X movie sequel doesn't exist" thing that those with lesser imagination attempt. You grab hold of those crappy follow-ups, acknowledge they were created to the High Heavens, just so you can take them, and beat them over the head and upper body of those responsible for bringing them into this world. You pick that horrible continuation apart, bit by bit, and jam those pieces into every available orifice, so every producer, writer, director, and studio head involved might feel even a small modicum of pain, boredom, and total confusion they realeased unto the hard-working public. If we don't turn the trends around now, we will end up awarding Oscars to "ASS", or worse.

Europos: @HeartBurnKid

Oh my God: Highlander: The Source. o___O

You know, I'm a big Highlander fan and I have absolutely no taste. I love the series, I find Highlander II hilarious for some reason. Highlander IV almost gave me a heartattack at the cinema with the suck, but I got over it. Totally zen. I mean, there is nothing bad fanfiction can't repair.

So when people started to talk shiat about "The Source" I was like: Yeah, whatever. How bad can it be? I've weathered everything HL so far. And then I saw it on the telly and I don't think I'll ever recover.

They actually filmed the worst harlequin romance novel fantasy/mystery brand script they could find and put the HL lable on it. If the actors were that hard up for cash, I would have preferd some straight up porn to be honest (or even the gay kind, I'm not picky).

/but don't we all here
//prefer porn that is

I think the worst thing about The Source is that it even manages to ruin the soundtrack from the first movie. If you've ever wanted to know what "Princes of the Universe" and "Who Wants to Live Forever" would sound like coming from the shiattiest cover band in the world, Highlander: The Source is your movie.

FeedTheCollapse: I've always thought it somewhat odd that Crystal Skull gets shat on but Temple of Doom gets a pass from Indiana Jones fans. ToD has some good moments, but it's pretty damn cheesy in spots and has an annoying female lead. That's not to imply Crystal Skull was a good movie, but it's not like the series didn't have its faults before that...

Temple of Doom brought us chilled monkey brains and snake surprise, both of which have been favorite meals at my house ever since.

EvilEgg: Now that I think about "Leave i to Beaver" I think how cruel his parents were.  The kid has buck teeth so instead of fixing them, let's give him a nickname that highlights an aspect that he is likely going to be insecure about.  It's like the Griffins picking on Meg.

Ward always was hard on the beaver.
