i disagree about the nightmare films I honestly enjoyed numbers 3,4,6,7 and freddy vs jason, it just depends on what style of film you like, everyones different....
Wow, this is an old thread. Strangely no one seems to have picked up on the fact that bad sequels in no way ruin the original films. Just because Robocop 3 was c**p it doesn't stop Robocop from being a great film. Same goes for Superman IV, Nightmare on Elm Street 2/6, or any other trashy sequel. They might kill the franchise, but they don't affect the quality of the original films.
Weekend at Bernies 2
I like Blade Trinity,MIB 2,Alien Resurrection and Godfather 3 is extremely underrated
Sister Act 2
Mannequin II: On The Move
(Kristy Swanson, you're NO Kim Cattrall! Annoyed )
Superman III and VI
Batman & Robin
Well, I liked Alien: Ressurection. It was a little far-fetched, but very original.

Spy Kids 3-D (if that can even be called a movie)
Any Disney Sequels (minus Toy Story 2 & Santa Clause 2)

and there are others, but i can't think of them right now...i'll add them when i remember them
I think Scary Movie 2 and 3 were unnescssary

Here's my favorite to worst Bond:

Sir Sean Connery
Pierce Brosnan
Sir Roger Moore
Timothy Dalton
George Lazenby
OHMSS is actually my second favorite Bond film behind Thunderball. It's a great story, it just happens to star the worst Bond.
Exorcist II
Texas Chainsaw MassacreII-IV
The Godfather part III
On Her Majesty's Secret Service
The Matrix Reloaded/Revolutions - there should be a phantom edit style job done to this and cut both films together with all the choice babble cut out.

I don't even regard them as sequels. All they are is cheap product and way to make a fast buck. I block them from existance entirely. Evil
I'm also puzzled why no one has mention any of the Disney Sequels. I don't think there was any sequel that was even close to the original in quality of the story and ect. One of my biggest peeves is how they ruined Beauty and The Beast. It was such a good movie (the only animated feature to ever be nominated for best picture) then they destroy it with the Christmas specials  and Beauty and the Beast  Reloaded. In the end all Disney sequels suck .

Actually yes, I did mean Forever instead of Returns.

A couple more I thought of:-
All sequels to Universal Soldier.
Blade Trinity
With the exception of The Fugitive which was excellent and things that expanded into movies like Star Trek and the X-Files, all remakes are AWEFUL! That's just a general rule. The very notion of a remake is simply a giant billboard that advertises hollywood is out of creativity.
Want to know why I brought this discussion up? I found it on another forum and thought how fun it would be to discuss it here! O.K. how about remakes? any bad suggestions? I got one...Starksy & Hutch. Found it boring.
I thought of a good one, Battle Royal 2. Totally unnesisary.

I thought about it, but came to the conclusion that the story was sound enough, it was mainly the lack of acting from Sofia Coppola that put everyone off.
I'd much rather engage in a discussion than a debate. I'm still sticking by liking Alien Res. and naming Hills Have Eyes 2 as worst sequel ever. I can understand why people don't like Alien Res., but who in their right mind will debate the merits of HHE2?
Uh-oh.

I hear it in the distance.

An endless debate is coming...

Eva, I applaud you. You list have all the ones I didn't enjoy either. Good choices!
Eva, I respectfully say you are WRONG.
Just kidding, but seriously, NOES 3 is pretty good. Did you really mean Batman Returns or did you mean Batman Forever? I think Batman Returns was the best of the live action Batman Movies, whereas I tried to watch Batman Forever on TV the other night and I just about died laughing.
Batman Forever
Batman & Robin
Candyman 2&3
A Better Tomorrow 3
Terminator 3
Alien Resurrection
Beverly Hills Cop 3
The Prophecy 2 and beyond
Lethal Weapon 4
Kickboxer 2-4
Jeepers Creepers 1&2
Men in Black 2
All Halloween sequels
Entire Friday the 13th series
Ringu 2&0
Nightmare on Elm St 2-6
Police Academy 3 and beyond
All the TV-movie/mini-series remakes of the few Stephen King film adaptations which didn't suck. Eg The Shining, Carrie.
Don't forget about Species 2 (which really wasn't that bad) and Species III (awful... just awful).
Tom
Analyze That - gawd it's awful. Saying that, the first one isn't exactly a classic either!
Sigh... Home Alone 3 did get a theatrical release unfortunately.

I think that winner for all time worst sequel has to go to The Hills Have Eyes 2. Even the freakin' dog has a flashback.
Home alone 3-4 (both were direct to video if i'm not mistaken)
At the end of the day the majority of sequels suck - quite simply - and don't forget the remakes (which essentially aren't sequels....)
Police Academy 4 was made a stones throw away from my house. Actually most of them were, but that one more so. Plus who can knock a movie with Sharon Stone, David Spade, Tony Hawk, Wayne Gretzky's wife and the one and only Steve Guttenberg.

"we dooooo....we dooooo" lol
I disagree with all the Police Academy. I only agree with 1 and two. The rest was a waste of time. Especially on dvd when 2 through to 6 only comes out with mono stereo. What is that? Surely Warner Bros. could have taken more time to remaster them somehow. The picture was horrible too, not widescreen!
I also like to mention all the Scream movies and Scary Movies! and movies like Alien vs Predator, Freddy vs Jason!
I'll admit that the new angle was fresh, and that the kid's head melting into bugs and snakes was honestly disturbing, but I just caught it again on cable a few weeks ago, and thought it was...kinda boring

Now, now Gabe...you leave Halloween III: Season of The Witch alone or you'll be getting a Silver Shamrock mask stapled to your head.
Laugh
I'm sick of all this Alien Res. bad mouthing! It's a great action flick. Really.

Halloween 4-8 should not exist, and I'm strongly rethinking 2 and 3 as well.

I use to hate Nightmare on Elm Street 2, untill I was made aware of its blatent homoeroticism. Now it's a hilarious metaphore for coming out of the closet.

And Die Hard 3 is awsome.

all the Police Academy!
Hmmmmm...


Alien Ressurection
MIB 2
RoboCop 2
And Die Hard 3 I dont agree with at all. I thought they were all decent.

I actually thought the third Die Hard was the best of the 3.

The rest I agree with though.

To it I would add -

xxx 2
Terminator 3 (I liked it, but without james cameron's involvement it just ended up being T2 again)
Star Trek Insurrection
Star Trek Nemesis

Plus too many more to count.
Movie sequels that should never have been made....
I think the following sequels ruin the original film -

Superman III & IV
Speed 2: Cruise Control
Alien Ressurection
Dumb and Dumberer
Son of the Mask
Men in Black II
Jeepers Creepers II
Grease 2
Jason X
Robocop 2 & 3
Predator 2
Turbulence II
Die Hard 3 - 2 was my favourite of 3 three

There's so many. If you have any more thoughts, send them in.
