     Most movies suck more than Clintons intern but some just need them simply because they leave the end open for one so that they are GOING to have a sequel then... no.... and when you watch it again 6 years later you find yourself asking... where the fuck is my goddamned sequel. Ok then, I wanna know what movies do you guys think need a sequel & which ones didn't.  confused

Tomb Raider didn't need a sequel.

I would love to see a sequel of The Nightmare Before Christmas, at least a movie told in one of the Holiday towns.

Movies where the story was originally written to be continous need sequals, to close the story. And movies which were originally intended to be stand alones, yet were popular, don't. Although they can occasionally be good, they aren't needed. It's money's fault.

They're making a sequal to Luc Bessons classic hitman movie, Leon.

If Natalie Portman learns how to act and they don't give it an insanely stupid title (i.e. Leon 2) and or plot, I think I'd look forward to it.  smile

Damn, "Matilda" is already taken.

"Dumb and Dumber" sure didn't need that pre-quel. And I'd say it's about time for an X- Files sequel.

Please don't give Disney ideas. So far they have made crappy sequels to almost all there films (Although apparently Lauran Tom is part of of the Mulan sequel). Just because they can't think of any more orginal ideas (then again most of their films where based on other people's stories any way) does not mean we won't to see poor quality straight to video sequels.

I also personally wished they had not made Terminator 3, it crapped on the previous story lines.
Also there was no need for Batman Forever and Batman and Robin (I'd love to shoot the guy who put nipples on Batmans costume) However I am quite interested in this Batman year 1 thing.

There are very few films who have sequels that exceed the orginal. The best sequel that springs to mind is Evil Dead 2 : Dead by Dawn. That film rocks my socks.

Problem. Here, in the US, it's called "The Professional." And I doubt "The Professional 2" is taken, either...

Natalie Portman is one hell of an actress! Ask anyone! It was just that Hayden Christensen's acting was so horrible it made her look bad.
Anyways, a lot of movies need sequels even if they weren't meant to have them. For example, BASEketball, South Park, Monsters Inc., Godzilla, and many more!

Ditto on Natalie Portmans performance. I'm actually impressed with a female's acting for once! She pulls off the looks and the acting... like Julia Roberts in Erin Brockavich "The hooker with a heart of gold."
& to get back on topic, The Professional definitly does not need a sequel much as The School Of Rock doesn't need one, it's a MOST excellent one time show.

I'm worried that you're not being sarcastic.

She was ok in Leon, other than that, she's a piece of (nice) ass.

I was half sarcastic... I mean her acting was at least on par. not with anything in particular but just, on par; meaning not B movie acting. And yes she is most certianly a piece of work.

X2 needs one, they ended it with us being able to just barely able to see the outline of The Phenix under the waves after the compound where Wolverine got his atomaton was flooded.

I think X-men and X2 were meant to be a part of a bigger franchise. I mean X-men was essentialy just exposition setting up X2. (x2 was the first sequel I liked better than the first movie.)

Movies that didn't need sequels (the very short list:
Kill Bill
The Matrix
Lord of the Rings:the Fellowship of the Ring (Just Kidding  smile
Ghostbusters
Back to the Future
Saturday Night Fever
Short Circut
The Gods Must Be Crazy
Crocodile Dundee
Bill and Neo's Excelent Adventure.
Men In Black
and many more

Movies that benefited from a sequel/franchise:
X-men
The Terminator
Alien
Army of Darkness (Evil Dead 2's sequel)
The Bond Movies
Indiana Jones (except I hated Temple o'Doom)

Slurm Guy and TheLastGreatDon: are you for real? Natalie Portman is terrible! She almost ruins Star Wars for me.

Sure, a lot of people may blame George Lucas and his crummy way of directing actors. But Ewan pulls his part off pretty damn well. Hayden Christiansen had his share of awkward scenes, but he was still 100 times better than Natalie. I've never seen "The Professional Leon"...I hear she's good in that. My theory is that, as she blossomed into a sexy young jewish woman, she just forgot how to act. It's not a big deal--it happens to lots of precocious young talents. But don't make the mistake of still considering her a good actress.

Slurm Guy: What would a BASEketball (funnyfunny movie BTW) sequel be about?
And Natalie Portman- I don't really know whether or not she can be good, because I've only seen her in Star Wars and one other film, where she was twelve (but in that one she was rather good). But in SWE1 she did have a slight weirdness to her voice when she spoke formally (especially the word "commitee". I don't know if this was intentional, but I think it was very suitable (and kind of hot- i have a thing for some accents)
Movie that did NOT need a sequel: The Crow!!! just leave it at the first, which I really liked.

I don't care what the plot of BASEketball 2 would be about. But it doesn't matter as long as it would be funny.

Yeah it did seem like they where planning for a sequel. But I'd rather just break out the old N64 and play Super Mario 64 then sit through another 90 minutes of hollywood B-movie crap written by 1000 cross eyed, retarded monkeys with down syndrome, and directed by the one guy who knew what the futch was going on in crap storyline that they used in the first one, because he can talk retarded monkey talk.

Final Fantasy just used the video game's name. And alot of the characters in the Mario Bros. movie didn't look like they should have. I thought that it was just a fun story.

No, we don't HAVE to. I'll have you know I still like the orginal. It's the other five million that bear its name that should be burned.

The sequel that never should have been made would be Home Alone 3 and 4. 3 features an entirely different kid and 4 tries to use different actors playing the characters from 1 & 2. Didn't work.
