[dropcap size=small]S[/dropcap]ome movie sequels nailed it—-badly. They made us wonder that are they REALLY sequels to those really cool movies we have watched? They made us question our sanity. Here’s Crizic’s list of those 7 worst movie sequels to awesome movies:
7. The Hangover: Part 2:
Well, we must admit that the movie was really impressive from an environmental standpoint. They managed to make the entire film with only recycled and reused jokes and plot points from the first. Yeah that’s a bad pun, but that’s what the movie was full of.
6. S. Darko:
That sequel was so horrendous that it retrospectively made us question why we liked the first one, and now its plot seems so overly contrived that we can’t enjoy it any more. This is the only movie so bad that it actually ruined the first one for us. The fact that a sequel can go back in time and retroactively make the original bad; is actually kind of fitting for this particular movie. And in that way, S. Darko is the most ingenious movie of all time.
5. Batman and Robin:
We’ll just leave you with some Arnold Schwarzenegger (Mr. Freeze)’s one liners:
“You’re not sending me to the cooler!”
“I’m afraid my condition has left me cold to your pleas of mercy.”
“Tonight, hell freezes over!”
“Ice to see you!”
“Winter has come at last.”
“What killed the dinosaurs? The Ice Age!”
“In this universe, there’s only one absolute… everything freezes!”
“If revenge is a dish best served cold, then put on your Sunday finest.”
“Allow me to break the ice.”
“Let’s kick some ice!”
“The Ice Man cometh!”
“Tonight’s forecast… a freeze is coming!”
“My passion thaws for my bride alone.”
“Stay cool, Birdboy.”
“Freeze in hell, Batman!”
“How I’ve longed to see that look frozen on you!”
“… revenge is a dish… best served cold.”
4. Spiderman 3:
We’ll throw in a good word for this flick here: atleast it was better than The Amazing Spiderman series.
3. Godfather 3:
‘It succeeded Godfather 2.’ PATHETIC.
2. Star Wars IV: A New Hope:
It wasn’t that bad, but as a sequel to “Revenge of the Sith,” it was RIDICULOUSLY low budget special-effects-wise, and pretty much all the actors are different.
1. Son of the mask:
The Mask had Jim Carrey, funny jokes, and a unique and interesting plot. Son of the Mask had none of these things. Also no young Cameron Diaz in that red dress. PERIOD.
