We're doin' a sequel
That's what we do in Hollywood
And everybody knows that the sequel's never quite as good
"15 years ago, A mop boy named Melvin Ferd fell into a case full of toxic waste and became a hideously deformed creature of superhuman size and strength, he became The Toxic Avenger, the first superhero from New Jersey! Then came two shitty sequels, sorry about that. This is the real sequel."
"Oh, man, I can't fucking believe this. Another basement, another elevator. How can the same shit happen to the same guy twice?"
Oh, Topper. I tried to stay away. I thought I was never going to see you again... that you were out of my life. But it's a sequel. I had to come. Topper:
Do you have any idea what the critics will say? 'Same warmed-over characters...'
Are you suggesting that someone's trying to make a real life sequel? Randy: Stab 2
? Who'd want to do that? Sequels suck!
"Here we go again. ... again."
Male announcer: "You'll love the original Grease
Female announcer: "Then watch the sequel
Male announcer: "Then you'll really love the original
"We watched Grease
and it was pretty good, but then we watched Grease 2
and I fell asleep."
So Janosz loves Sigourney Weaver
just like Louis Tully did. And then comes to her apartment door, and... knocks on it, and she won't let him in, just like Louis Tully did...
This movie SUCKS. Jay: (laughs)
The only movie I can think of that apes the first movie even more
closely than this is, like, Teen Wolf Too
. The only difference is that he's in college
He's a boxer. Jay:
He's boxing instead of basketball. But other than that, it is the exact same
Well, there's been a proven, successful track record of repeating the first movie in a sequel. You're doomed for your third
Yeah, you can't repeat the same thing three times. You can trick people with one sequel.
Call me hard-hearted, call me cynical, but please don't call me if they ever make Home Alone
"It's like someone deciding to do a Mona Lisa 2
, but with a moustache.'
Why is the sequel never equal?
"So, after six games of Megaman
, with some slight changes here and there, people were just like, 'Ah, fuckin' Megawhatever, Megaman 12
? What is this, Land Before Time
"Imagine a world where sequels are banned. Would this not be a beautiful place? Sure, we'd miss out on genuinely good sequels like Thief 2
or Half-Life 2
, but I think that is a small price to pay. Every story would have to be fresh, and the writers would have to work extra hard to make the characters likable. With no sequels, there are no franchises, less fandom, so the nerds will go off and become doctors and scientists and rid the world of all known diseases."
The game by and large plays like the zombie it is — lifeless, a hair too easy, and somehow lacking all of the perversely brutal charm of the original. The less said about it, the better, really. I think I'll even pass on including a screenshot.

Sarah Jessica Parker sort of kind of teased that a Sex and the Retirement Community movie was happening, but Warner Bros. pretty much shat on that rumor by saying that a third one isnt in the works. Besides, if there were talks for a SATC3 movie, wed definitely know it. Every Razzie voting member would immediately turn in their membership, because their tolerance for watching dried cinematic turds stops at another SATC movie. Up until then, I'd always been in with audiences that had a percentage of people who liked the movie...My
Highlander II audience, though, was 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.
'When you got a condition, its bad to forget your medicine,' Marv reflected in the original, sounding like a broken man. He repeats the sentiment here, sounding more like hes offering advice for dealing with a stomach ulcer.
So the movie opens the same as the original — with a shot of the house. And it kinda looks like the same house. If that house was cut in half and built in 2009. So yeah, it looked kinda something like the original.
And thats a theme throughout the movie — stuff is sorta the same.
Only now its been stripped of all its humanity and character.
Probably a lot like the bloodsuckers who decided this movie needed to be made.
Of the times I had to stop and think about this movie, it got a tad depressing. You are seeing a group of people in their 30s who cannot stop living their high school memories. Its rather pathetic that these people havent done anything in the past 13 years they think is so much better than their pie fucking days. Wow.
picks up where its predecessor left off: At a logical endpoint requiring no sequel."
"Essentially, by having those markings appear on his face as the result of the execution, it's like those markings are meant to be there — put there by some greater power, and The Crow will always have them. Whether it be makeup and paint
, or scarred
, or even... [groans loudly]
"The setting is the present and picks up with Wolverine wandering the earth, still traumatized by the events of X-Men 3
. But then, aren't we all
still traumatized by X-Men 3
"Why was there no subtitle in the movie? They subtitled the last movie. Well, I have an answer: Look under that title. You see that blank, empty space? Let that be an indication of the blank, empty imagination employed within, and the void it left in our hearts."
: So there you go. Proof that it
sucked, back then
Past Nerd: Yeah, and I know by your time they're probably up to Mega Man X20.
The Nerd: Nah, Mega Man kinda stopped. The franchise has been...dormant, lately.
: Well, that's good. You never rush out anything just to meet consumer demand. Otherwise you just get shit. Some franchises get done to death. You can't keep beating the same thing into the ground.
taught me to hate. I thought
I hated before Sonic Boom
's existence, but I realize that was a child's daydream of loathing... Sega
's final insult, Sonic Boom
, is a reminder that we're all going to fucking die."
"It's everything it could
have been, and it's everything it should
have been. The only problem with that is: the only place the series could go from there was someplace...stupid.
When I was playing, particularly during
Wrath Of The Lich King, I thought I would be playing World of Warcraft for the rest of my life. Then
Cataclysm came out and I didn't think that anymore.
: As a sequel, we're trying to do one very important thing. That's sell toys, sell books, and sell audio tapes. Now the movie itself could be about a blue toothbrush
, and as long as we sell the merchandise and keep the suits happy, who cares about the subject matter?
Ice Age 6: Close Encounter.
Ice Age 7: Meet Scrat.
Ice Age 8: Time Travel.
Ice Age 9: Kill us already.
Ice Age 10: I quit.
THREE movies, Newly-Thin Peter Jackson

was ONE book, with a simpler plot and cast... and geared towards children! YOU DON'T NEED THREE MOVIES, NEWLY-THIN PETER JACKSON.
How much material could you possibly squeeze out of that book? What else is left?

: Wait, you can't. Not just for me, but for the love of science, the love of knowledge, the love of... Sequels. Captain
: Sequels? Cancel that order, Gunner. We've got a franchise to protect! The Action League
: YAY!!!!!! Narrator
: Not nearly the end!
: How do I look? Darwin
: You know how when you go to the movies and you think, "The sequel can't possibly be worse!" Well, it's like the tenth movie.
"Baby Dooky Dum Dum 6? That movie's the worst! I mean, 1 through 3 were good, but MAN! They lost the plot after 4!"
"You can't top pigs with pigs."
"When The Final Chapter
was offered to me, I was like, 'I don't really want to do Friday the 13th.
' Eventually, I only did it because of Amy Steel — she talked me into it. And I thought it was really cool because it was The Final Chapter
. In my mind, I thought, 'Oh, I'll be in the last one. That's kind of cool. These things are famous.' Little did I know."
"It was just a situation in life where I got the script and I read the script and I was like ugggghhh. It was about a cruise ship and I was thinking, A bus, a cruise ship
Speed, bus, but then a cruise ship is even slower than a bus and I was like, I love you guys but I just cant do it.'
"The Trekkies, they did
get a little freaked out. I think they've come to realize that I did them a favor... My god, how many more of these things? Patrick Stewart
spouting off for another forty minutes? Jesus, I mean, if you find that
exciting, go watch paint dry. Oh god, is somebody photographing...? This is going to be on the bloody Internet, isn't it?
"There has just been too much Star Trek
for a while. I remember the moment the franchise peaked. The moment, to me, was when Kirk and Picard were on the cover of TIME Magazine
. I literally walked in the next day to the office and said, We have peaked. Its down hill for quite a while from here. You reached this kind of critical mass in popular imagination. You were now on the cover of TIME
, and all the old stuff about the Trekkies was kind of gone by the wayside. It had gone from being a subculture of a subculture, to now this legitimate nationwide phenomenon. It was Americana. Kirk and Picard are big heroes, and everyone loves them. You cant sustain that, so it just started falling off."
"I think we're going to carry the Ice Ages
up to Ice Age 15
, which means basically they'll be in the present decade."
"As we all know, sequels can be tricky."
"I pointedly avoid doing sequels, since for the most part I find that a sequel rarely steps up to the original."
"There are so few good comedy sequels. The only one in recent memory that's good is 22 Jump Street
. It's a hard genre."
"The deals that they make you do are so draconian. And, of course, you are signed on for not only the movie that you are signed on for
but at least two more
that you havent read and you have no idea what they are going to be, and all the crossover ones you are going to have to do. For me to sign on now to do a superhero movie would mean I would be working until I am 50 as that particular superhero."
