‘Ten movie sequels we didn’t need’. Can't Post

Hot on the heals of news that Stallone is going to reprise his role of Rambo for a fifth movie, NZHerald.com has come up with its list of ‘Ten movie sequels we didn’t need’.

What do you think of this list? Are there other movies that you would include instead?

10. Freddy's Dead - The Final Nightmare
(A) bonafide turkey which ultimately proves one thing: it really is time someone made Freddy hang up his hat for good.
Widow Ellen Brody's (Lorraine Gary) flees Amity Island to the sanctuary of the Bahamas, convinced that the great white is stalking her and her brood because of some "evil curse".

8. Alien: Resurrection
What were you thinking, Sigourney Weaver?


7. Basic Instinct 2
Sharon Stone reprises her role as novelist and suspected serial murderer Catherine Tramell in this long-delayed sequel to 1992's Basic Instinct.


6. Speed 2
The original's leading male, Keanu 'The One' Reeves, wisely opted out of this stinker of a sequel, only to be replaced by a square-jawed Jason Patric whose on-screen chemistry with the Bullock amounted to the square root of nothing.

5. Grease 2
(This film) follows the yawning exploits of a boy newcomer who's desperate to catch the eye of the blonde bombshell leader of the Pink Ladies, Stephanie Zinone (Michelle Pfeiffer).


4. Police Academy 7: Mission to Moscow
Total travesty. (And the others weren’t??)

3. Matrix Revolutions
Self-indulgent and full of metaphysical hokum, Revolutions goes down in a blaze of CGI-propped glory.


2. Batman & Robin
The film was widely panned for its campy-take on the franchise and frequently pops up on 'worst ever' lists online. Hammy and over-acted, Batman & Robin is a celluloid smorgasbord of dull.


1. Star Wars - Episode I, The Phantom Menace
Formulaic, over-cooked, with inexplicable plot twists, tongue-in-cheek dialogue and more than a fistful of loose ends, Phantom bares no real resemblance to the freshness and cool that tantalised moviegoers' senses so craftily with the original episodes. (Whereas I thought the best part about Episode II was that it made Episode I look better.)



So what are your thoughts?

Celebrimbor: "Pretty rings..."
Dwarves: "Pretty rings..."
Men: "Pretty rings..."
Sauron: "Mine's better."

"Ah, how ironic, the addictive qualities of Sauron’s master weapon led to its own destruction. Which just goes to show, kids - if you want two small and noble souls to succeed on a mission of dire importance... send an evil-minded b*****d with them too." - Gandalf's Diaries, final par, by Ufthak.
