->Okay, ''[[Film/HighlanderIITheQuickening the Quickening]]'' was just about the [[WorstWhateverEver worst thing to happen to movies in the history of...like, ever]]. But you know, sometimes good can come out of that. Sometimes a really bad movie can serve as a really good example for how to make [[SurprisinglyImprovedSequel a good movie]], it can show you what to avoid, which is what happened with ''[[Film/HighlanderIIITheSorcerer Highlander III]]'', and that was a lot better! Well, it was okay...it didn't suck...[[DamnedByFaintPraise it wasn't]] [[ParvumOpus Highlander 2]]. Okay, it sucked too. Uh, there was the [[{{Series/Highlander}} television show]]. Uh...and there was ''Film/HighlanderEndgame'' which crossed over the TV show and the other movies, and had that blue-lipped guy from ''Film/DungeonsAndDragons'' as the villain. ''[visibly cringing]'' Then there was the spin-off TV show...and then there was the [[WesternAnimation/HighlanderTheAnimatedSeries cartoon]]...[[Film/HighlanderTheSource oh god]]. [[MadeMyselfSad I'm really depressed now.]] There should have been only one.

->''"With the other three more or less completely meritless ''ComicBook/BeforeWatchmen'' titles it is at least straightforward to understand all of the steps involved in creating awful comics. But ''Before Watchmen: Rorschach ''is bad in genuinely [[DarthWiki/SobadItsHorrible surprising and unexpected]] ways."''

->''"Overall, ''Annihilation'' is a travesty of a film, made even worse by how good [[Film/MortalKombat the original]] was. Don't even attempt watching it, not with friends, not with booze, or any sort of mood-altering substances you might have on hand. If you want the experience of watching ''Annihilation'', put the original film on, crank up some techno at [[EarRape full blast]], and [[JitterCam shake your head around really hard]] while you're watching. You might have more fun that way, too."''

If people who liked the movie...My ''Highlander II'' audience, though, was [[ProducePelting actively disliking the movie]]. During the love scene, people were groaning and shouting derisive remarks. And when the credits rolled, they didn't just boo, there was a collective ''growl''. I could see the ushers quickly excusing themselves for an extended cigarette break, far, far away from here.

->As for [[{{WesternAnimation/Cars2}} Cars 2]], there's a whole bunch of stuff in here that doesn't feel like {{Creator/Pixar}}. The plot isn't as knit tightly as it should be. [[CluelessAesop The moral doesn't really hold up to scrutiny]]. The writing is weak, weak WEAK. This was a film that John Lasseter wanted to make because [[AuthorAppeal he loves spies, and he loves cars]]. The dude's got some serious credibility in modern animation. He's practically [[Creator/WaltDisney Walt Disney]]'s spiritual successor. He not only put Pixar on the map, he's leading {{Creator/Disney}} back to form. The guy can afford to make a dud, but man, oh man, when he makes a dud, he really makes a dud. And the thing is, I couldn't even qualify it as a "bad" movie, at least by the typical qualifications for a bad animated feature. No, Cars 2 is not just one of those sequels that you think shouldn't exist because it has no reason to exist. It's one of those films you think should never have existed because the opportunity was completely wasted. Cars 2 isn't bad. It's just a waste.

->''WesternAnimation/ToyStory4''. No. Okay? No. I have already had my guts ripped out by these fucking movies three times. I don't want another two hours of charmed toys desperately trying to stave off eternal loneliness and isolation. I can't take it. The end of ''Toy Story 3'' was perfect and wonderful and I never ever ever want to watch it again because I don't like sopping up tears from my rug. Nothing can end in today's pop culture. If there's money to be had, both storylines and characters will be extended well past their logical endings and get fucking ruined in the process.
