Don't play it again Sam.........
This just in from Los Angeles --------------- Sylvester Stallone is back!!! This week I read a wire story entitled, "Stallone to revive 'Rambo' franchise," but not only will the film "Rambo IV" be appearing soon there is another "Rocky" installment being completed by Stallone entitled "Rocky Balboa." Shooting (ha, ha) for both films will begin in 2006.
Now I admit I remain a fan of the very first "Rocky" film due to its raw energy and classic American story line of "underdog succeeds against all odds......." but when I read this news clip I had to wonder -- when has a story line run its course so that the producers declare success and move on to other projects?
Like my fellow film lovers I too have been seduced by the drug known on the street as -- "sequel" -- but as is the case with most drugs there is high potential for harming your health. So I have compiled a list (based on my own experience and surveying people during my travels this week) of "Sequels that should NOT have been created due to their negative impact on society or just myself :) " for your review and commentary especially if I have overlooked some real raspberries in the dark underworld of sequels:
WHAT DID WE DO TO DESERVE THESE SEQUELS? -- MASTER LIST:
Look who's talking too
Bridget Jones: Edge of Reason
Legally Blonde II
Exorcist II and III
Police Academy II, III, IV, V, and VI -- did I get them all or list too many??? :)
Nightmare on Elm Street II and III
Dumb and DumberER
Crocodile Dundee II
Well, should any of these films be deleted from the Hall of Shame, should others be added that I have overlooked?
Off to the box office,
