Worst Sequels!

I nominate Karate Kid III. Danny LaRusso looks pudgy and short. He still acts like the teenage kid from the first movie and is constantly shrieking at Mr Myogi. The movie sets are cheesy and fake looking.

The end scene where he wins the tournament has huge applause, but there's like 50 people in the audience. The applause is like from a foot ball stadium.

The whole movie looks like someone decided to make the cheapest movie possible.

by Anonymousreply 1210/18/2015

Karate Kid III is so so bad it's good. The villain (Thomas Ian Griffith) is comical and spends most scenes hugely smirking or laughing. I find him oddly attractive as this character. Macchio, Morita and Kove are clearly there for the paycheck, and the script is full of plot holes. Nevertheless, I've seen it, and laughed through it, many times.

"Staying Alive"!!!

They took the likeable kid from "Saturday Night Fever" and turned him into a narcissistic jerk with the same name, and put him in the ludicrous position of going from neighborhood disco dancer to the lead in a Broadway show with no training in between. Of course the finale is so hilariously camp that it almost redeems the movie, but not in the way that the filmmakers intended.

Batman and Robin - the fourth and final film in the 90s series, and George Clooney's only turn in the role. So bad it killed the franchise dead in its tracks. It's a fixture on Worst Films of All Time lists.

Beyond the Poseidon Adventure...a sequel to a movie that ended with a handful of survivors being rescued from a ship that was moments from sinking.

Oh, wait! It's gonna hang on for another day and feature MORE survivors we've never seen before and the production design is completely different than from the first film!

If viewed completely separately from Rocky Horror, Shock Treatment isn't that bad of a movie (and actually has a few catchy songs). But yes, as a sequel, it's pales in comparison.

What about television movies that attempt to reunite cast members from television shows? Some of them have time lines that are way off, such as The Waltons. They brought them back a couple of times, for events such as the moon landing. If the kids had been a certain age during the depression, it didn't add up, for example, that Elizabeth had just served in the Peace Corps. Then there's the Baldwin sisters, who were old during the depression, yet were still somehow around during the reunion episodes.

I actually liked this, but there were many walk-outs and it did not do well at the box office. It's technically a prequel.

I never saw the Blair Witch sequel (and I know a lot of people don't like the original), but it must have been bad - it completely killed the franchise. After the first one they announced they had plans for at least two more movies (I think the third one was going to be more of a prequel), and possibly more. After the second movie you never heard of future Blair Witch movies again, even direct to video.

Twin Peaks: Fire Walk with Me is a brilliant film, completely underrated. Sheryl Lee and Ray Wise give incredible performances. I think people didn't like it because a) it was too dark; b) the film cut out most of the characters and focused on Laura and c) the Twin Peaks phenomenon had passed.

Agree with r56. Sex and the City 2 is an abomination. Whoever came up with the story should never work again.

Temple of Doom is a lot of fun. Kate Capshaw's performance though is terrible. She was a charmless heroine unlike Karen Allen.

by Anonymousreply 5910/25/2015

The Twin Peaks movie is a very different creature from the tv show but it has some very very powerful stuff in it. Yes, it's a prequel - but in many ways, it's a sequel that looks back on the events the preceded the show through the lens of how the show ended. So it's more like a spiritual sequel to the series - and should not be viewed before watching the show.

Basic Instinct 2 made me realize how dumb and mentally ill Sharon Stone is - how the f did she read that script and say "yes." lunatic. Sex and the City 2 made me feel like bashing Michael Patrick King and SJP for losing all touch with reality. Indiana Jones with the awful Cate Blanchett and Shia - so bad on every level. The Star Wars prequels. duh. (I don't know why people are putting themselves through the hype machine again for The Force Awakens - prepare to be disappointed all over again, dummies) Gremlins 2 has some clever stuff in it but gone is the contained horror of the first one in exchange for campy bits. The thrill is gone. Legally Blond 2: let's pretend Reese never really evolved in the first movie and make her a total cartoon at the beginning of the movie - again. Batman Returns - yes, Pfeifer is brillz - but she's stuck inside a really unappealing movie with a confusing and icky A storyline. DeVito is repulsive in the movie and makes it unwatchtable. And the camp one-liners wear thin. Jurassic Park: The Lost World - a weird sequel with none of the fun of the first movie and some weird PC casting - Jeff Goldblum was a great character actor/supporting character in the first movie - terrible as a lead in the second one. (Spielberg loves to try and make his Jewish stand-ins the leads - like the awful Shia - never works - sorry, Jewish characters are better as sidekicks i.e. Dreyfuss in Jaws, Goldblum in J Park)

More American Graffiti. The original was a snapshot of one night in the lives of interesting and poignant characters, crossing paths, interacting, getting together, and leaving home. The sequel was a damn mess: stories jumped between different years, there was no explanation of how the characters evolved into what they became in the sequel, the ridiculous split screen vignettes were exhausting, and the movie was boring as hell.

I loved "American Graffiti." I was pissed as hell they made a sequel, because sequels almost always suck, and "More American Graffiti" was no exception. George Lucas knew it was really fucked up to do a sequel; he commented "You just never know on these things. I did a More American Graffiti; it made ten cents. Just failed miserably."
