We take a look at the sequels that never should have been made, the awful and terrible sequel movies can have.
This list is made in decreasing order, means new ones will be listed first, this shows the run of making movie sequels is an old phenomenon and their terrible scripts as well.
Sharknado 2: The Second One (2014)
One of the most awaited extreme-shark-weather movie of the year, premieres on the Syfy network.
WALL STREET: MONEY NEVER SLEEPS (2010)
TRANSFORMERS: REVENGE OF THE FALLEN (2009)
Transformers was reasonably harmless for a Michael Bay movie, but 2009 sequel Revenge of the Fallen was a hulking, clonking clutter. The tone veers hugely from intense weapon fights to bad stoner jokes, with strong language and medication endorsements that are completely unnecessary in a movie based on a kids’s toy line. Barely-disguised robotics Skids and Mudflap were barely-disguised racist, jive-talking fashions, and in the most Michael Bay disclose of perpetuity, the Devastator (a big evil robot composed of many smaller sized evil robotics) has two significant, turning damageding spheres hanging in between its legs. It’s a suitable metaphor for the film itself: a lots of robo-balls.
BASIC INSTINCT 2 (2006)
SON OF THE MASK (2005)
OCEAN’S TWELVE (2004)
Clooney and pals took everything that made Ocean’s Eleven such an exciting and fun break-in movie and threw everything from the window for awful jokes that resemble smugness and self- congratulation. Julia Roberts’ personality Tests impersonating an expectant Julia Roberts (obtain it? since she looks like Julia Roberts) is only the beginning of the terrible try-hard sense of the film. Just what could possibly’ve been another sharp, exciting flight as an alternative ends up being a physical exercise in the condescending, and truthfully boring, back-patting of a number of major motion picture celebrities.
BRIDGET JONES: THE EDGE OF REASON (2004)
Maybe better titled The Edge of Plausibility. The comfy, down-to-earth feel of Bridget Jones’ Diary was no place to be viewed in this sequel, which in its ‘finest’ minutes merely copies its precursor beat-for-beat (Bridget acquires ripped off on by Daniel Cleaver, Darcy and Cleaver fight in the street) and in its worst finds Jones singing Madonna tunes in a Thai prison. Bridget herself has transformed from an unlucky however smart character into an overly-quirky ordeal. Ramping up the pratfalls and slapstick, the film goes to as soon as desperately try-hard while barely seeming to try whatsoever. Doing not have a story, any sort of form of jokes, and without a considerate lead, Bridget Jones: The Edge of Reason stands for the nadir of the British rom-com. The Bridget from the first movie would likely have hated it.
AMERICAN PSYCHO II: ALL AMERICAN GIRL (2002)
BOOK OF SHADOWS: BLAIR WITCH 2 (2000)
BLUES BROTHERS 2000 (1998)
ANOTHER NINE & A HALF WEEKS (1997)
SPEED 2: CRUISE CONTROL (1997)
This heroically ridiculous follow up switched out everything that was good regarding the original – consisting of the loose bus – with a script and set-up – on a wild, erm, boat – as lame as the movie’s subtitle, which is maybe the worst of all time. Speed 2 was nominated for eight Golden Raspberries and inevitably won the honor for Worst Remake or Sequel. Its only favorable contribution to Western Civilization is a scene in The Simpsons through which Otto’s school bus is competing at broadband, leading Milhouse to yelp: “It’s like Speed 2, just with a bus as opposed to a boat!”.
LOOK WHO’S TALKING TOO (1990)
TEEN WOLF TOO (1987)
In Teen Wolf, the 1985 Michael J Fox car, Hollywood had actually clearly located the giddy heights of narrative excellence: uncomfortable teen Scott Howard, who isn’t excellent at basketball, uncovers he is additionally a werewolf, which is practically a basketball pro. It’s a principle so sturdy that it merely required to be mentioned to once again – although with Fox hectic elsewhere, Jason Bateman was presented as Scott’s, er, cousin Todd. Oh, and this moment it was boxing. Considering that a battle between an university student and a lycanthropic Michael Bluth is entirely reasonable, best?
GREASE 2 (1982)
If ever before there were a film that really did not need a sequel, it’s Grease. Oil 2 makes no effort to create a half-decent story or any type of catchy music. Instead, Grease 2 lots an already thick-as-diner-milkshake plot with hilariously unsubtle songs. Making Michelle Pfeiffer the “awesome one” in this world where appeal is judged by the leatheriness of your coat was inspired, yet every little thing else surrounding her was a temperate try at restating all of things Grease had already spontaneously break into track and dancing about.
