    #6. Beverly Hills Cop 4

    #5. Triplets (The Sequel to Twins)

    #4. Army of Darkness 2

    #3. Beetlejuice 2

    #2. Blade Runner 2

    #1. Top Gun 2


    As facepalm-worthy as this list is (except for Army of Darkness 2,WOO!),I'm glad that at least these are sequels and NOT reboots. Because in the end a reboot is basically telling you "forget everything you saw in the other movie. THIS is the real McCoy" (fuck you,Carrie 2013!).

        I've known about Triplets for awhile now.

        Another Beetlejuice and Beverly Hills Cop, you say?

          You know what, I agree. These sequels are ridiculous but remakes would be even more stupid.

          And, at least the Beetlejuice sequel will not be "Beetlejuice Goes Hawaiian" like originally planned. I hope.

            They all sound like really poor movies to sequalize, except for maybe
            Army of Darkness. I mean, who in the mainstream audiences has heard of,
            let alone remembered Twins?

              Twins was a pretty popular movie when it came out, I mean Arnold Schwarzenegger and Danny DeVito starring in the same movie in 1988, and they were supposed to be twins! Lol, there was a lot of hype, and it made pretty good money.

              But I do agree it should not be sequalized.

                Eddstarr88 and I expounded on the subject of sequels and remakes in a bygone thread, but I find the opinion still holds sway today. They should do remakes of movies that were actually bad! It just makes more sense. Don't reinvent the wheel. And if you must do a sequel, just do a remake of a bad sequel. Like Predator 2...PLEASE REMAKE THAT CRAPFEST.

                          Lately I've been hearing people talking about Beetlejuice - a lot! Now I know why. Guess its just something in the air.

                          Original content just doesn't cut-it in today's Hollywood anymore.

                            There's still zillions of movies I haven't seen, but I will give this one a try sometime.

                              NO, The Thing is not a goddamn "remake" of the 1951 movie, they have very little in common other than alien and snow. Carpenter's film is so different than the "original", there never was a movie called "The Thing" in 1951 just The Thing from Another World, sure Carpenter threw in 2 homages like circle of men and similar opening title card but everything about them like the location, the characters and their backgrounds, the discovery/origin of the spaceship, the monster, the nature/methods of the alien etc are both different from each other. I consider them 2 separate and completely different adaptations of the same original source material being called "Who Goes There" by John W Campbell. The 1951 movie was a VERY loose adaptation and one of the worst book to film adaptations of all time as it completely ignored the book, Carpenter's film is a standalone film that is an EXCELLENT adaptation of the source material. Carpenter may had loved Hawks's film but he didn't intended to do a remake of the earlier film but instead go back to the real source material and he stated his film is no remake it's a separate film that it is it's own movie and a faithful adaptation.

                              Remakes and re-adaptations are 2 completely different things, remakes refer ONLY to films based on FILMS themselves that aren't based on source material but original films and original screenplays like say The Blob for instance, a TRUE remake. Re-adaptations are separate adaptations of original source material (comics/novellas/novels) like say Dracula, I Am Legend, The Thing, Invasion of the Body Snatchers, Carrie, Girl with Dragon Tattoo, War of the Worlds, Batman Begins etc.

                              Calling The Thing a "remake" is like saying I Am Legend is a "remake" of Omega Man or Omega Man being a "remake" of Last Man on Earth, NO they are all separate adaptations of the same source material and have nothing to do with each other.

                                Not to mention Carpenter's movie was way more faithful to the "Who Goes There?" novella.

                                  My bad. It';s more like a reboot, isnt it. Kind of like Batman Rises. I did not see I am Legend. I thought that was about vampires? Wait I just had a cool idea. What if Batman was a vampire? That would be neat, since vampires are bats. And Batmna is a suave guy in real life, like Count Dracula. So when hes Bat-Man, he could suck bad guys blood. Then when he is rich guy in real life, his reflection starts to disappear and Alferd worries about him. And when Batman sucks the blood ogf Joker or Mad Hat, he starts laughing or hallucinating, and he has to fight their wierd chemistry with the power of his mind. Then they go in Arkum and there locked up, and he has to get out and be sane again and stop the bad guys. The logo could have the points of the bat's ears and the points of the bat's fangs. Now that would be a cool sequel!

                                    Man it's been a very long time since I have been on these forums. It's good to hear from all of you once more.

                                    Anyway the sequel that I would most like to see from the OP would have to be Beetlejuice 2-simply because the original was so perfect that even if the sequel is horrible it still should at least be somewhat entertaining. Here are movies from the 80's and 90's that I would love to see in sequel form.

                                    Monster Squad 2-They can easily just make this a straight to DVD movie and not even have to include the original cast just make it a lame cash in but have the spirit of the original in tact.

                                    Maverick 2-While James Garner is still alive they can go ahead and make this sequel that would also reunite good friends Mel Gibson and Jodie Foster who also worked together in the 2011 flop The Beaver.

                                    Remo Williams-Most people will say that this is a horrible pick but I for one thought that the original seems like it was the beginning of a franchise and since Fred Ward has become a bigger star since then with the Tremor movies I think that this would be a good sequel.

                                    Goonies 2-They actually made an NES game even though it was a sequel to the japanese NES Goonies game and not based on the actual movie. Still this would make more sense than the sequels that are actually being made.
