Since we have a "must-see when on" thread about movies, here's a spinoff I guess...

Can anyone top Caddyshack...and then the AWFUL Caddyshack II???

Don't forget, the first movie has to be at least pretty good...so the Friday the 13ths, et al, do not count!

BTW, how many Friday the 13th movies were there? And don't say "too many"!

I'd definitely say that the Matrix sequels qualify. And also the new batch of Star Wars flicks. Both of them were money grabs and both sets suck and do discredit to the films that came before them.

Excorcist II and III: A celluloid monument to leaving well enough alone.

While Godfather II might be better than part I, part III was an excercise in pushing one's luck.

IMO the only sequel better than the original was empire strikes back.

Most sequels just suck. I don't count the LOTR in this since it's really just one long movie.

Cannonball Run II just couldn't live up to the classic first Cannonball Run.

There are many flicks to choose from but "Jaws" tops my list. The first movie gripped this country back in 1975. Richard Dreyfus, Robert Shaw, and Roy Scheider gave great performances. But the sequels were laughable. In the last one, a shark attacks a guy, in a boat, in New England, at Christmas time. An utterly ridiculous idea.

I would make one exception...Godfather II...it might not have been better, but both are classics. I agree with an earlier poster whose name I forgot that G III wasn't in their league...at all...

I disagree with this statement. The first Matrix sucked just as much as the sequel.

I don't know if the original could be called a "classic" but it was entertaining, "Predator."

Plus, "Predator II" didn't feature the future governor of Minnesota.

A good one I can think of is the movie Speed with Keeana Reeves, Sandra Bullock, and Dennis Hopper. I thought the first movie was rather entertaining, mostly because Dennis Hopper plays a great crazy villan. But the second Speed when the ship they are taking a cruise gets hijacked... I mean come on, it was to much for me. I would also have to say all of the Freddy and Jason movies, except the last one where they meet. I actually thought they did a pretty good job on that one.

The Blues Brothers. Okay, they loaded up the second movie with a lot of musicians, but the film should never have been made without JOHN Belushi, who was too dead to do the flick. No offense, but I think Jim Belushi was just ridin' John's coat tails.

Hold on. Rocky III was pretty good whereas II was just a bridge to get there. The rest have been pathetic beyond all expectations.

How about 2004 Beacon Run II opening on this Saturday night?

In the words of the comic book guy on the Simpsons: " Best sequel....Ever."

I totally agree. The first one was great.
Both Jackie Gleason and Jerry Reed are fantastic.
I love the scene where JR runs over the bikes after
the bikers kick the **** out of him. "Far Out"

Gleason: "There is no way you sprang from my loins!"

Nothing like that in the sequels.

I also think the Jaws and Exorcist sequels sucked bad.
Don't have the terror of the first.

I think Predator II was good. I'll watch it if its on.
No sight of Jesse but he was dead,
The story was good and different enough and that makes a big difference.

Peace
John
