Movie Meme: Day 1 Sequel that should not have been made
To start off the movie meme, we're going in a bit of a negative direction describing a sequel that should never have been made. There are so many to choose from that I'll just list the ones that came to mind. These are movies that should never have been made because either there was no need to further the story from previous incarnations or it was such a bad movie, it makes the movie geeks cry. The first two are Sandra Bullock movies because this week's Reel Insight podcast was devoted to dear Ms. Bullock.
1. Speed 2: Cruise Control - They really had to have another high speed chase, but this time on a boat, without Keanu Reeves, and a sad villain in Willam Defoe. Really?
2. Miss Congeniality 2: Armed and Fabulous - There was no where the first and far superior Miss Congeniality hadn't explored about these characters. Again, neither Benjamin Bratt or Michael Caine returned. Dear Sandra, if your leading men won't repeat the film with you, say no.
3. Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull - a trilogy is sufficient for the great Indiana. Stop while you're WAY ahead of this one.
4. Legally Blonde 2: Red, White and Blonde - Again, once Elle Woods successfully conquered Harvard Law School and the ex that dumped her got his comeuppance, what more was there to say. I actually waited in line to see the first showing when this came out, WOW do I wish I had used those hours more productively. Seriously, if they'd seen this photo first, would they have even made the movie?
