What are they? And why have they made a sequel to Donnie Darko?
Final Destination 2 (I've not seen it, but the title is the silliest ever)
Final Destination 2 was great though. Well... by those standards.
And Highlander 2 DOES NOT EXIST.
Only partially exists.
Never. Ah, the planet Zeist. It's the only film that's made me cry
Star Wars I, II, and III.
As is Indiana Jones 2
and I'm guessing Alien Vs Predator 2.
Predator 2 is ace-o.
Danny Glover! Bill Paxton! Gary Busesesesesesesesesy!
Completely surreal. It reminds me of City of Lost Children
Crocodile Dundee II
The Fly II
Pirates of the Caribbean II
Smokey and the Bandit II
Conan the Destroyer
I've recently come to the conclusion that we have very different tastes in films. Have you not seen El Mariachi???
But Once Upon a Time in Mexico has some truly great work in it from Depp. His CIA guy is really good.
Add to that the plot is cleverly thought out - not too complex but it's not a straightforward idea. I loved it.
For a bad sequel, The Chronicles of Riddick was dreadful.
Empire Strikes Back
Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade
Three Colours White/Red
A Few Dollars More/The Good The Bad And The Ugly
Waynes World 2
Austin Powers 2
Toy Story 2
Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban
French Connection II
X Men II
THE TRAIN AT THE END!!!! Way to ruin everything.
Like Return of the Jedi, it's only good for the first 25 minutes or so and then it has a couple of good set pieces.
Naked Gun 2 1/2.
I'm tempted to say Airplane II but I'd just be lying to myself.
Just because Airplane was the greatest film ever made doesn't make Airplane II bad. The 'Macho Grande' scene alone makes it worth it.
If not, you should do so.
But there's something dirty about loving a film that's made by a bunch of people who simply watched the first one and said, "We need to write something like that..."
Sort of like enjoying one of those fake James Bond books.
so was Spiderman I for that matter. As for III - candidate for worst film ever
The second one had one of the best "NOOOOOOOOOOO!!!" scenes I've ever seen in a film. That puts it over the top as far as I'm concerned.
Also Spider-Man I: Dull, Spider-Man II: Decent, Spider-Man III: Awful.
And Evil Dead 2, as well.
Dawn of the dead
much better than the original
Arnie is MUCH better as baddy
The fat stuntman on the bike
The first is generally scary in places. The second is just big explosions.
WRONG. There is nothing in the world more scary than Robert Patrick coming around a corner, seeing you and just starting running. Nothing.
but it’s not as good as the original – by a long way.
But at least it made the list!
Yeah, it has a certain charm but nothing can really get over Sarah Connor's 80s hair badness.
T2 has a better recording of the music, better ideas and is altogether more fun.
The second one has ‘splodes and Robert Patrick, but it’s the relentlessness of the first one that lifts it to a classic for me. It’s the efficiency of it’s execution and the way it ratchets up the tension like a coiled spring that puts the rather bloated and uneven second film in its shadow.
Don't get me wrong, I really like the second one. But the first one is so much better.
Well for one thing it feels budget a lot of the time, not in a rubbish effects way, which isn't a problem, just in a sort b-movie actor way.
I don't really care for the completely synth music track now I've heard the much better T2 one (it's either a good sampler or a real orchestra, but either way it just sounds great).
I think the iconic scenes in T2 are so good while T1 is a good film it feels like a TV movie. T2 is too long, though. However, I like the stuff in the long version so...
And I definitely prefer the soundtrack in the first one.
Horses for courses etc
I prefer Alien: Resurrection to both of them!
(I jest, I like Alien better than Aliens but it's close thing.)
In before the "they're totally different so you can't compare them" posts: they're both hollywood films featuring an acid-blood alien race, a woman who nearly gets her boobies out a lot but not quite, and loads of people getting killed.
A little part of me just died.
That films is great.
Or Brazilian job. Either way it's some sort of banana republic job that is a sequel, to the remake, of The Italian Job. I don't care about the first Italian job, but still this is milking it
S. Darko takes place in the summer of 1995, seven years after the original film. It follows Donnie Darko's younger sister, Samantha (Daveigh Chase), who, in the wake of his death, has found herself at age 17 with a broken family, mired in feelings of insignificance. She and her best friend Corey (Evigan) set off on a road trip to Hollywood in a bid to 'make it big', but their journey is cut short when their car breaks down unexpectedly, leaving them stranded in a small desert town. When a meteorite happens to crash-land nearby, Samantha is plagued by bizarre visions telling of the universe's end and it appears that their breakdown was part of some grander plan. When she finds out she was actually adopted by the Darkos, and that she is in no way related to Donnie, she must face her own demons and, in doing so, save the world and herself
is unbelievably bad
Awful film, and completely tramples on the rather sweet ending to the first film (which I loved). Plus it ditched Linda Fiorentino, for that alone it's unforgiveable.
suggesting her character didn't much like the job or something. I have no idea if maybe the actress didn't want to do the sequel. It's still a terrible film, it makes the ending of the first one pointless. A 'de-neuralyser'?!
