Spinoff: Sequels that did happen that shouldn't have
Posted by Socrates Johnson on 12/31 at 10:11 am
Coming off a weekend that brought to our TVs both "Staying Alive" and "The Matrix Revolutions," what are some other not needed sequels?

Obviously the answer isn't "Caddyshack 2" or "City Slickers 2: The Legend of Curly's Gold."

All those are just shitty sequels. Not really sequels that didn't need to happen.

Matrix needed a sequel. The sequel just happened to suck.

Really? I thought the first one tied up pretty well. He defeated the agents when he jumped into them and did the Syfy channel flourescent light thing.

It told a complete arc, which aside from The Lord of the Rings/The Hobbit, every good first film has done in every series. The second film is the film where this isn't exactly required since its usually the fall of the hero.

The Machines weren't defeated though and humans were still in the Matrix against their will. Until all the humans that wanted to be out of the Matrix were out and there was at least some peace between them and the machines, then the story wasn't exactly over.

The Matrix was fine the way it was. Did not need a sequel.

I really think it did. Its like saying that Star Wars didn't need a sequel. If they turned it into "The Empire Strikes Back" like they should have, then everyone would agree that the Matrix needed a sequel.

S. Darko, the Donnie Darko sequel was complete shitbomb.

Episode IV didn't need a sequel at all.

Sandlot 2
Spiderman 2 (I think some people liked this but I didn't.)

ETA: I understand the whole "follow the comics thing" but sometimes the first movie of the comic tells the story and that's all that's needed, IMO.

This was a great movie. It was one of the few times you could say the sequel was as good as the original.

I liked revolutions up until it shite its pants at the end with all the psychobabble. They really one-upped themselves with the new characters. And the chase on the freeway was one of the most ambitious action sequences there is.

Really? The Empire was hardly defeated, Darth Vader was still out and about (who killed Obi Wan and Luke's father), and Luke was not a fully realized Jedi. How did it not reek of needing a sequel?
