Top 10: Bad sequels to good moviesNov 6th, 2009 | By Zach | Category: Entertainment, Top 10
Rocky V (1990)
Stallone had to go back 15 years later to do another finale for this film series just to help erase the memory of this one just like Tommy Gunn removed the memory of Rocky’s childhood with a blow to the head in a back alley.
Legally Blonde 2: Red, White, and Blonde (2003)
The first movie was a quirky, fun, and clever movie about a ditz in law school. The sequel, which focused on saving a dog from makeup testing, was … well … just plain stupid.
Trying to follow up on the winning comedic formula of Star Trek IV, Director William Shatner pulled out all the punches with humor like Scotty bumping his head on bulkheads and fifty-seven-year-old Nichelle Nichols doing an erotic dance… ewwww!!!
Batman and Robin (1997)
George Clooney probably needed to go to the real ER after witnessing his disasterously short run as Batman.
Robocop 3 (1993)
The original excelled with extreme violence, crude language, and some great social commentary. The third flick did a 180 and went for the kiddie audience, garnering a PG-13 rating. The results blew worse than Robocop’s new jet pack.
Die Hard 2: Die Harder (1990)
Cashing in on the success of the first movie, this carbon copy had John McClane battling terrorists in an airport. Unfortunately, it lacked a solid script and a respectable villain.
Indiana Jones and Kingdom of the Crystal Skull (2008)
This series would have been best left alone. The plot felt like a rehash of earlier entries, and Harrison Ford just came off looking older than dirt.
The Godfather: Part III (1990)
The first and second films were some of the best cinema ever. This series had no where to go but down. It did.
Star Wars: Episode I – The Phantom Menace (1999)
Digital effects couldn’t replace the lack of a good script. Who in the world thought Jar Jar was a good idea?
Alien 3 (1992)
A totally-unnecessary sequel to two great predecessors. It sucked. And then they made another sequel. It sucked, too.
