Just a few choice movies over the years have done well with a sequel. A couple that come to mind are "The Godfather" and the "Lord of the Rings"...not "Starship Troopers #1-2-3 that it was obvious someone had way more money then common sense to cut and paste those together.
The movies like The Godfather/Lord of the Rings were built on a story line of intellect and hard work by writers/a great director/editors/casting directors/lighting techs/etc...all the way down to the theater's they were shown in.
In most of today's movies with sequels, it's unfortunately due to lack of imagination/dependency of computer generated FX...or simply just... they throw the public a bone and say..."You'll Love It...now come and get it!"
Unfortunately...the public does accept what's thrown at them and before you know it...a run of the mill (or bad) movie is a box office hit.
I stick with Netflix and pick what I want from what I know and stop an unknown film 15 minutes after it's deemed "dull"/"bad"...and disregard a film critic's A- rating when I honestly believe it should be a C- or 1-2 star outta 4 star rating.
Just because a movie is filmed here in Wilmywood...the media places it on the highest pedestal...simply for that reason.
Even the bad entertainers on "American Idol" have promise of a promising career...as crappy as it sounds.
Mr. Downey would praise "The Beverly Hillbillies Meet Godzilla" if he starred in it...all of its sequels! HA!
