I would have been pretty content if they stuck with Aliens, Species, Highlander, Terminator 2 and Basic Instinct (though, admittedly, I do have a bit of a thing for Sharon Stone in that role. :P )

Almost all of the classic Disney movies. Way to taint my pleasant childhood memories of them by crapping out straight-to-video sequels just to make some extra dough.  :-(

Though..I have to admit..Tim Curry as an Evil Singing Gate in Beauty and the Beast wasn't bad...the whole premise was, but he wasn't. o3o

Oh yeah, I remember that! You mean the organ from the Beauty and the Beast Christmas movie? He was the only part I liked.

Avatar should not get a sequel. I am Legend - theu should just leave it alone.

Anyone think The Boondock Saints needed a sequel? It was an alright movie but I thought it was un-needed

Plenty of Disney movies have bad sequels.

...If you mean Avatar as in "blue cat people," there's one coming. It probably won't take as long as the last one, though.
But if you mean Avatar the cartoon, there's a sequel series coming, involving the next Avatar after Aang. (I'm hoping that Aang is as crazy awesome as Bumi was in Last Airbender... or that Zuko turns into the new Iroh. <3 UNCLE IROH)

...But! For things that don't need sequels... Saw 3? 3 of those movies was enough for me; i haven't seen any since.

Another would be Firefly, actually. I know, strike me down with lightning and various blunt instruments, but a new Firefly series would never be as good as the original, I think. The reasons it is so popular are that it was awesome, and that it ended too soon, but if it started up again, it'd feel forced.
The blue cat people one. If it's the Nick show I usually throw on the subtitle The Last Airbender.

Now onto the, "NOOOOO!"

Boondock Saints shouldn't have been made.  I would love to have seen a sequel as good as the original but Duffy blew it big time with the sequel.  Movie was terrible, and filled with utterly random scenes following the next.

Mortal Kombat didn't need one movie let alone two. Their brilliant awfulness is their saving factor.

Apparently Titanic 2 is going to be about...

A ship, named "Titanic 2" that sets sail 100 years after it's predecessor sank..

and guess what? THEY HIT A MOTHER ****ING ICEBERG.

I wish I was kidding.

Titanic 2 The Asylum Version (2010) First Official Trailer HD

That's the official Trailer.

Yeah..unsurprisingly, it looks like ****. o-o

*Head-desk, Head-desk, Head-Desk* Despite anyone's jadedness might tell them no one is stupid e-freaking-nough to try and repeat the flipping Titanic. How does anyone out of a B-list horror flick fall for that? "Hah ha! Plucky first-make. I don't see why you worry everyone knows that there are no famous ships in Earth's history who've been sunk by icebergs, why icebergs are just a myth. Like Jason!"

Did not need any MORE sequels: Terminator and Robobcop. Both should have stopped at number 2, because Terminator 1 and 2 and Robocop 1 and 2 are all awesome movies. Number 3 though...shit for both of them. Way to ruin Terminator 2's message of hope and fighting fate.


Needed a sequel: The Super Mario Brothers movie. Yeah, that's right, the live action one with Bob Hoskins as Mario. It was a awesome movie (and I mean that, I love that thing) and totally set itself up perfectly. Big villain for the sequel? That Scapelli character who got turned into a monkey, only he manages to "evolve" into a larger monkey with more intelligence. Putting on his best tie he seeks revenge with his mafia ties and throwing barrels.

What I like about the highlander movies...is somehow in the thrid movie they seem to have ignored everything in the second one as though it never happened lol. That's what you get I suppose for rushing to make a sequel hoping it will be as successful as the first.

And then there was The Neverending Story 2....the first one was neverending enough ^^.

It can get worse with Neverending Story. They're planning a remake.

We could be lucky.  They could go back to the source material.  (I have it upstairs.  The original movie only got halfway through the book.)

I know, but honestly... I don't think it's gonna happen. Look how they butchered Clash of the Titans - to me it seems that Hollywood thinks that better CGI does the trick and they totally don't even try any story-telling. :(

The original wasn't that great. "Hey I read my seventh grade Greek gods and goddesses book. Lets make a movie loosely based on a hodgepodge of Greek myth."

I still remember the version of Clash of the Titans with Harry Hamlin...looking back that was just Gosh awful -_-....

And  on the subject of remakes, I still prefer the original Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory with Gene Wilder. ^^ That Veruca Salt was just plain nasty. And the new Mike Teevee has nothing on the old one.

But since this is supposed to be about sequels...

Speed 2...I don't know what they were thinking. You lose Keanu Reeves you got nothing compared to the first one. There was no chemistry at all in the second.

People still walk up to Gene Wilder, say simply 'Yours was better,' and he knows exactly what they're talking about.

Actually that Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory has, in my opinion a better ending than the book.
In the book Charlie one just because he was a good kid. In the movie he had to show real character. That's one of the few time's I'll say a movie was better than the book.

Dune if the other one, for one reason.

I didn't know that ^^, But that's one of those movies I can watch over and over again any time it's on TV. That along with "A Christmas Story." Which came out at the same time as The original Star Wars. Meaning it never stood a chance in the box office.

Don't get me wrong I love Johnny Depp in most things but I think his take on Willy Wonka was a weeeee bit too creepy for my taste o.0

And since mentioning Star Wars...did anyone else think Chapter 2 should never have been done? That scene where Anakin is rolling down the hill with Padme laughing was not romantic in the least...it just looked plain stupid. Another couple which lacked any sort of chemistry in my opinion. Though even all the chemistry in the world couldn't have made that scene work o.0

Honestly, if you think of all the stupid crap couples do that looks totally insipid to any outside view while you watch that scene you realize that that's a very well done scene. :)

Episode Two is my personal favorite of all the new ones. Grand Army of the Republic for the win!
