okay my take on the whole thing is avoid sequels whenever possible. the only ones on the list i am looking forward to are lotr and star wars (duh). aside from those 2 he only one i would go out of my way to watch is shanghai knights. many of the movies are in such preproduction that there is no idea what to expect, yet, but as it stands, my outlook is bleak.

007 - halle berry's possible spin off HORRIBLE IDEA
bad boys 2 Probably will work and make some money
bring it on again (direct to video) [b]Nothing without the original cast[b]
charlie's angels: full throttle [b]It'll work but I'm not interested[b]
dirty dancing 2 again not without the original cast
dumb and dumberer [b]Has potential but may not be good without the orignal cast[b]
exorcist: the begining Nice try but no
the fast and the furious 2 First one was good this one will be the exact same thing differant cast, I'm not looking forward to it
final destination 2 Its pretty much like all horror sequals, same story, more death so for me
indiana jones 4 No
jeepers creepers 2 Depending on how its done it seems watchable
lara croft: tomb raider - the cradle of life First was entertaining, second should be worth a rental, maybe the full ticket price if theres nothing else to see
lotr:rotk I could wait, but I don't want to
matrix: revolutions and reloaded Hopefully it'll live up to the hype, I'm there
ocean's 12 With the original cast I'll be there
pulp fiction 2 I don't know where anyone got the idea for this, check the other thread
scary movie 3I hear Kevin Smith is writing so possibly a rental, if not then I don't plan on touching it with a 10 foot pole
se7en 2 (eight?)I can't miss a Fincher movie so if he's at the helm I'll be there
shanghai knights Not interested
spy kids 3 Not interested
star wars: ep 3 Can't wait!
terminator 3 Probably will see, not too excited
the whole ten yards Really enjoyed the first one, so I'll probably see this
x-men 2 I'm there
xxx 2I enjoyed the first one so I'll probably check it out

Like most of you, I don't hold out much hope for prequels/sequels, but
I'll comment on a few.....
Exorcist :The Beginning......could be interesting with Shrader's involvement.
Seven -Horrible idea. Highly,highly doubtful Fincher would involve himself with crap like this (then again he's doing Mission Impossible 2
...though he'll probably make the best film of the series).Freeman is turning into a slut.
Dumb and Dumberer-this is the Dumberest idea ever. No Carrey/Danielson,
no want to see.... the original wasn't exactly a classic.
Matrix Sequels- Hype aside, these should be interesting. Though the 'pop culture burn out' syndrome comes into play.
Guaranteed Pure Crap: Chuck's Angels 2, Fast/Furious2, DDancing2.
X-Men 2...I'm thinking/hoping this may eclipse the first one.
Episode3: Lucas has one final chance to deliver the goods....we can only hope it's appropriately 'dark' No cop-outs.
ROTK:......I'm betting this will be superb. Just a hunch.

Re: future sequels that will or won't work

Hard to say since most of them, we haven't seen or heard anything about. Their respective marketing machine, director, cast...are not yet announced, but with time we will be able to judge them better. For now I predict something like...

007 - halle berry's possible spin off
bad boys 2
barbershop 2
charlie's angels: full throttle
dumb and dumberer
exorcist: the begining
the fast and the furious 2
final destination 2
indiana jones 4
jeepers creepers 2
lara croft: tomb raider - the cradle of life
lotr:rotk
matrix: revolutions and reloaded
meet the parents 2
ocean's 12
se7en 2 (eight?)
shanghai knights
spy kids 3
terminator 3
the whole ten yards
x-men 2
xxx 2

Re: future sequels that will or won't work

007 - halle berry's possible spin off - Maybe, I'm not as against it as others are
bad boys 2 - Maybe, but I doubt I'd see it in the theater
barbershop 2 - Haven't see the first but intend to
bring it on again (direct to video) - Never saw the first, no desire at all
charlie's angels: full throttle - Bill Murray was great in the first, but he's not in the sequel, so I doubt I'll see this in the theater
dirty dancing 2 - Without the original cast? Umm, no, horrible idea
dumb and dumberer - Without the original cast? Are the Farrelly Bros. directing? If not, then no
exorcist: the begining - Maybe, could be interesting with the cast and director
the fast and the furious 2 - Wait for the DVD, probably a rehash of the first
final destination 2 - Maybe, I actually liked the premise of the original and would like to see more
indiana jones 4 - Looking forward to this
jeepers creepers 2 - Never saw the first, no desire at all
lara croft: tomb raider - the cradle of life - Absolutely hated the first, one of the worst "films" I've ever seen. Will not bother with a sequel
legally blonde 2: red white & blonde - See Tomb Raider comments above
lotr:rotk - Very much so looking forward to this
matrix: revolutions and reloaded - Yes and yes
meet the parents 2 (thanks siberianhusky) - Yes, wish they would start filming it already, first was hysterical
ocean's 12 - Same cast and crew and I'm there
pulp fiction 2 - Not sure this is a good idea
scary movie 3 - Never saw the first two
se7en 2 (eight?) - Horrible, horrible idea, especially if no Fincher and Pitt
shanghai knights - Maybe, Owen Wilson cracks me up
spy kids 3 Haven't seen the first two
star wars: ep 3 - Will watch to see if Lucas can redeem himself with what should be a darker story than ESB
terminator 3 - I'll most likely catch this one
the whole ten yards - Never the saw the original
x-men 2 - Ehh, first was okay, not sure about this one

Isn't Meet the Parents 2 in preproduction as Meet the Fockers? Seems that I read that somewhere. Can't wait if it's true, though.

no want to see.... the original wasn't exactly a classic.

Who's Danielson? (Jeff Daniels maybe?)
Anyway there has rarely been a case where the first movie wasn't better than the sequel.

i'll step in with t2. liked it much better than the original. i'd also go with godfather 2, but many say one, so i may be in the minority here.

Re: future sequels that will or won't work

007 - halle berry's possible spin off - a bad idea that should not be made. put more effort into a really good bond movie instead.

bad boys 2 - looks decent, a good rental anyhow.

barbershop 2 - could become another series of films like
the "Friday" movies. Cheap to make, with enough celebrity appeal to carry it.

bring it on again (direct to video) - don't know anything about the original. direct to video is not a good sign

charlie's angels: full throttle - lame

dirty dancing 2 - pointless cash-in

dumb and dumberer - will not work without original cast

exorcist: the begining - pointless to tie it to the exorist saga. Could just as easily start a new series of movies.

the fast and the furious 2 - inevitable, will flop very hard.

final destination 2 - why was the first one made?

indiana jones 4 - unnecessary, and has the potential to taint the entire series.

jeepers creepers 2 - lame.

lara croft: tomb raider - the cradle of life - first one sucked, why make another?

legally blonde 2: red white & blonde - easy cash-in sequel.

lotr:rotk - not really a sequel, will be a classic.

matrix: revolutions and reloaded - hoping for the best, but I think it'll fall flat.

meet the parents 2 - how does this concept lend itself to a sequel?

ocean's 12 - lame.

pulp fiction 2 - impossible to make. Do something original instead.

scary movie 3 - sure, why the hell not? get that money while you can.

se7en 2 (eight?) - shouldn't be made.

shanghai knights - Jackie Chan does not work in American movies.

spy kids 3 - 2 looked semi-interesting as kids fare goes. Why not? I'd rather sit through this than a pokemon movie.

star wars: ep 3 - the train wreck finally goes over the cliff.

terminator 3 - Could be cool. hope so. Arnie is at his best playing a machine.

the whole ten yards - pointless.

x-men 2 - One of the few superhero franchises that will support a series of sequels. I wanna see Dark Phoenix dammit!

xxx 2 - easy cash yet again.

I hope they'll make another Alien movie but not "Alien 5" I want a prequel like what was intended from the start.

The transportation of the Alien/weapon in an interplanetary war. When the space craft crashes hundreds of the aliens escape and killing off most of the crew of the ship (standard story) . The creatures that were commanding the ship would also be giants in comparison to Humans. The aliens would appear much smaller in comparison to the commanding creatures, and there would also be many more aliens to destroy. The aliens attacking I think would looking very cool if the were to swarm the commanding creatures like 'flies on excrement'.

Also this could lead to the Alien Vs. Predator Movie by having the Commanding creatures battling a Planet of 'Predators' and taking their Alien/Weapon into the planet for battle. and aliens fight predators. I think they can both write themselves.

I now realize I've gone a bit off topic with instead of just stating you need to Add Alien Vs. Predator to the list. give entire outlines to movies.

As a horror fan, I'm anxious for this one. I mean, Jason and Freddy, were among some of the first horror flicks I've seen, and scared the hell out of me as a kid. I'm gonna have a blast seeing what happens in this flick. Not sure if it's gonna be total crap or not, but I will definitely see this one.
