Best Movie Sequels We Actually Want To See
First of all lets put all that crap talk of how a sequel would only ruin the original. Just shut up. The average Best Movie Sequels goer loves sequels and sure they are rarely better than the original but that doesn’t mean they cant be fun. With that being said here are some of the sequels I would love to see.
Top Gun 2
Not to sound horrible but it is getting annoying how Tom Cruise is still a box office star. Sure Knight and Day didn’t light it up but just watch MI:4 make damn good money. Don’t Get me wrong, I think Tom may be one of the greatest movie stars off all time but only when his career starts to tank will he consider making Top Gun 2. We all want this Best Movie Sequels to be made, it needs to be made and hell, there hasn’t been a good fighter pilot movie since the original. I don’t care what the plot is, perhaps I could do with less sweaty shirtless men playing volleyball second time around but we have to get the ladies excited as well.
Anchor Man 2
I have no idea why this hasn’t been made. The huge following of this movie would make a sequel box office gold. Add in the fact that all the original cast are willing to come back and this makes the situation even more irritating. The fact is that the studio execs have passed on this movie so many times that I really am thinking that this Best Movie Sequels will never be made. Oh, in case you were wondering, the plot of the sequel was never really revealed but it was going to be a could have been.
Star Wars Prequels or Sequels
People are always wanting Episodes 7,8 and 9 but if you read into the “history” of Star Wars, what happened before Episode 1 is where all the good stuff lies. Anyway, George Lucas has made it very clear that he never plans on making any more movies (there is a live action TV show planned) but wait, do we need Lucas to continue? Of course not. We already have all his ideas and as Empire and Jedi showed us we don’t need him to direct or write the movies so come see some more Star Wars.
True Lies 2
Arnold (not Tom Arnold) is back making movies, so that means this movie is now possible. The first one was just plain awesome and if the sequel master himself, James Cameron, decides to make this one I will be one of the first lining up to see it. Sure Harry would be getting a little old in this one but that just sets up everyone’s favorite line “I’m getting too old for this shit”.
Master and Commander 2
You will see this soon on my list of movies you should see, because it was damn good and way too many people missed it. It was nominated for Best Picture, did well at the box office and there are sequels to the original book, so there is not shortage of materials. The plan was to make a few of these personal best movie but I guess it was not as successful as some may have hoped. Come on, take a chance and make a second one, Russell Crowe needs to be grounded after his return from Krypton (he is currently filming the next superman movie so I wanted everyone to get my witty comment).
Napoleon Dynamite 2
I know it could never live up to the first one, but damn it, I want them to try. If I would green light this movie in a heartbeat as it would be so easy to make money with this movie. The director and cast would all have to return to make a good go of it but I will not get my hopes up as Mr Hess has said there will never be a sequel. I guess I will continue to dream.
