5 Movies That Never Should Have Had Sequels [VIDEO]

I was channel surfing last night and landed on Arnold Schwarzenegger‘s movie ‘Predator.’ It wasn’t one of my favorite AH-Nold movies, but all-in-all, it was a decent flick. But that got me thinking about some movies that I thought were great and then how Hollywood had to go ‘back to the well’ and start cranking out sequels. Not all sequels are bad, but as the numbers got bigger, the plots got smaller.

I picked the following 5 movies because they are some of my favorites. The reason I think they should have been left as a stand alone film? Sometimes walking out of the theater wondering “what happens next?” is a lot better than heading back to the movies a couple years later and knowing what happens next.

 

Back To The Future – 1985

Sequels: Back To The Future Pt.2, Back To The Future Pt. 3


Jaws – 1975

Sequels: Jaws 2, Jaws 3D, Jaws: The Revenge


Alien – 1979

Sequels: Aliens, Alien 3, Alien Resurrection, Alien vs. Predator, Aliens vs. Predator: Requiem


The Terminator – 1984

Sequels: Terminator 2: Judgment Day, Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines, Terminator Salvation


Halloween – 1978

Sequels: Halloween 2, Halloween 3: Season of the Witch, Halloween 4: The Return of Michael Myers, Halloween 5, Halloween: The Curse of Michael Myers, Halloween H20: 20 Years Later, Halloween: Resurrection


There are many more sequels that probably shouldn’t have been made. A Nightmare On Elm Street, Friday the 13th, Final Destination and Men in Black.

And let’s not get me started on the ‘reboot’ movie craze. I’ll save that for another day.

Let me know what sequels you think should have stayed off the Hollywood grid.
