Movie Clip Wednesday "Worst Sequel"

It's MCW. Started by  Boxer a while back, I've been the caretaker of this gig for a week or three now. Most of you know how it works but if you're new here (for which I greatly thank you) here's how it works. A theme is picked each week. You choose a movie to fit the theme and find a clip, preferably three minutes or less, and post it on your blog. Announce in the comment section of this post that you are up and we'll come and pay you a visit. It's simple really. If you are looking for the theme it's usually posted under the MCW banner on the right side of my drivel by Thursday


This was a hard one.  So many shitty sequels. I guess one of the rules is that the first movie had to be at least decent.  If it wasn't, what would you have to compare it to.  Caddyshack 2, Teen Wolf 2, Blues Brothers 2000, Godfather 3 (how could the best sequel have one of the worst.  Anyway, I'm late for pool league and when I chose this topic the movie that first came to my mind was Another 48 Hours.  So disappointing on so many levels.  First, no Annette O'Toole.  She didn't get near enough screen time in the first one and none in the second.  A travesty of epic proportions.  Don't think so?  Ask men if they are enough hot redheads in the world and the answer will be a resounding "NO".  The defense rests.  The ridiculous story line, the shitty motorbike scene, the 1/2 shoot out "all the windows everywhere" scene.  I hated all of it.  I guess when it comes to bad sequels, you're anticipation for wanting to see it combined with your disappointment once you do is the biggest factor.  It's kind of like giving an girlfriend a second chance.  You had some good times the last time, it didn't work out the way you wanted but good memories so you get back together and it's a disaster.  Kind of like that.  Not saying that's ever happened to me but I've seen some things.  Happy MCW.

Bad. Bad, bad, bad, bad, bad. And, also: very bad. Funny, but my Worst Sequel did feature a red head. I'm up. Up, up, up, up, up.

heh...the question is, how can a squel be good? If the first was good, let it stand. If the first was schlock, two schlocks doan make no Oscar.



Ya does a grand job, MilkRIver Man.

Yup. 100% crap. And I really enjoyed the first one too.

I'm up with GREASE 2.

More crap. And Aunty is right.

Happy MCW!

Morning! I'm up with Highlander 2.

Joanna Cake said...

Never saw this one but wasnt that enamoured of the first film so that's probably why :)

I think my worst sequel featured some red heads but not because of hair :)

Not enough gingers on the big screen. are you listening hollywood. I did not see this sequel, but remembered i liked the original 48 hours. when i sing "roxanne" i sing it eddie murphy style from that movie. Good pick because you cant go wrong this week. almost all sequels suck. happy mcw!

Good morning MRM,

Good er um bad choice. Another 48 hours was a huge disappointment. That's the good thing about red heads, usually one per picture is plenty.

I'm up with another fish story. Well not actually a fish.

Troll said...

Good choice. I'm UP with a different cop movie.

Buzz Kill said...

It's been so long since I've seen this movie, I really don't recall whether I liked it or not. Probably not. Nick Nolte gets on my nerves with that heavy breathing puke your lines out acting style. And Eddie Murphy has made some bad sequels - Beverly Hills Cop 3 & 3, the Nutty Professor 2. The Shreks were OK.

So what do we say, good choice for a bad movie?

I'm up at the Buzzkill with a tremendously dissapointing "sports" sequel (you already mentioned it).

Not-so-Happy MCW!

I got nuthin' this week. Budget cuts means I get a double work load. But I was gonna go with Grease 2, so am glad someone else went that route. Happy MCW anyway!

To all of you. I've been racked at work. Which is a good thing. So many great posts. I wanted to respoond at lunch today but was swamped. Again, a good thing for me.

You are all champs for putting up with my lame meme's, especially at the last minute. I do have a goal and when it happens will tell you all the entire story.

If I've already mentioned this, I'm sorry. It's my way. When you talk as much as I do, you can't remember everything you've said.

Happy MCW.
