Ten Things Tuesday- Movie Sequels That Never Should Have Been Made


Sometimes movies are made and just shouldn't be. The first one might be good, but do we really need another?
That's what I am talking about.

Here's my list of movie sequels that never should have come to pass.

1. Cinderella
     Not only was there one sequel. There were two.  They were made in 2002 and 2007. Just...WHY?

2. Mummy
     I loved the first one. It is great! The second one was watchable, but the kid was a brat and the parents ignored him so they could smooch and that is why he got taken. Than was The Scorpion King, which was not Mummy Three, contrary to many people's delusions. The Scorpion King had nothing to do with The Mummy other than the fact that he was a character in the second movie. The last Mummy was bad and didn't even have the original woman actor and the mummy was different.

3. Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs
     Cute little movie. "Meatier showers" made me laugh. But, the second one just looks goofy. Food that's alive. What is this? The Disney version of Aqua Teen Hunger Force?

4. Police Academy
     I liked the first one. The second one was not bad. By number three, I was over it. And yet, they made more. Seven Police Academy movies have been made and apparently number eight will be coming out in 2014. By the time that movie comes out, it will have been 30 years since the first one. Some of the original actors have died and I bet the rest ain't lookin' too pretty.

5. Hangover
     I know this was a hit. But, I HATED it. I thought it was God awful. I don't even know how that one got made. Than the second one came out. Everyone went to see it. Well, except for me and the mister. He didn't like the first one either. People said that one was bad, but since it made so much money cause everyone "had" to see it they made a third.

6. Meatballs.
     Great summer fun with Bill Murray.

Than they made three more really bad, stupid ones.

7. City Slickers
     I love the first one. One of my favorites. But, you just don't go and replace Bruno Kirby with Jon Lovitz. Nope, sorry.

8. Matrix
     First one was great, second was too. The last was pretty good til the end. They ruined it. They just ruined the whole damn trilogy. Now, I can't even watch the first one without thinking of the ending and what was the point?

9. A Christmas Story
     Did you know there were sequels? Neither have the original cast. They can't. Too old or too dead. The first sequel was called A Summer Story and came out in 1994. A Christmas Story 2 was a DVD release in 2012. 

10. Predator
     This was never my favorite movie either, but what do I know. After the second, came the two Alien vs. Predator movies and than a third sequel- Predators. The creator wants to do more too. So, we have that to look forward to.

What movie do you think should not have been made?

    1. I am sure I have seen that one, Lynn. But, right now I don't remember that one. Was it bad? Maybe I blocked it out.

  2. I think Cloudy with a Chance of Meatball 2 looks stupid, too. I don't think we'll be seeing that one.

  3. Was there a Debbie Does Dallas sequel? If it exists, it shouldn't. I never bothered to see City Slickers II. I don't think I ever will.

    1. Gorilla Bananas, I think there was a Debbie Does Dallas Again and you don't want to see City Slickers 2.

    1. ABFTS, I think their plan of hoping no one would notice was not a success.

  6. I love Meatballs. It's so much fun, and so is the theme song.

  7. I thought Hangover was great. I couldn't watch the sequel. What about TV shows that run for too many seasons?

    1. David, I believe that How I Met Your Mother has lost it's luster. There are many more. Maybe that will be my next list. Good idea!
