Midweek Mouth-Off: The sequels that should (or shouldn’t) have happened

1 min read


Life’s not fair, we know this. Sometimes, really awesome movies deserve a sequel and it just never happens.  As Kervyn wrote yesterday, we know this happened with Karl Urban’s Dredd 3D, a damn fine movie with great reviews that failed at the box office, so the chance of getting more out of the franchise was scuppered. Even though it was basically an origin story, we’ll sadly never get to see what happens next.

On the other hand, you have a movie like Horrible Bosses. While it was a decent movie in its own right, to me it told a complete story and the idea of having a sequel just seems… pointless. Like what happened with Ocean’s Twelve and Ocean’s Thirteen. They didn’t need to carry on the story, and they probably shouldn’t have.

So our question this week is: what movies do you think never got the sequel they deserved, and which sequels so you wish were never made?
