Throughout the history of cinema, there is no shortage of series that have been carefully planned from the beginning, and you are even saddened where the end of these series of movies is, such as the “Lord of the Rings” trilogy, the “Harry Potter” series, the “007” series, “Star Wars” true story trilogy, Marvel movie universe, DC movie universe, etc., each movie seems to be paving the way for the next movie.
However, the birth of a great work often starts from many angles, which gave birth to the idea of making a sequel and put it into action. Many times, however, sequel films don’t actually live up to the quality of their predecessors. Many movies deserve a sequel, but some don’t because they already have a happy ending. And bad sequels eventually make the original work ashamed. For example, the following editor will list five movies with bad sequels. Will “Avatar 2” join them?
“2001: A Space Odyssey”
“2001: A Space Odyssey” directed by Kubrick in 1968 is the most dazzling jewel in the crown of science fiction movies, and it can be called a monument in the history of movies. Even if you can’t understand what the film is saying when you leave the theater or turn off the screen, you will still be amazed by Kubrick’s masterful shooting techniques and narrative methods.
“2010 Megatron Helios”
“2010 Megatron Helios” was released in 1984. This film is also adapted from the original author’s novel and is a sequel to the serious “2001: A Space Odyssey”. However, this sequel can only be described as mediocre in the face of Kubrick’s “2001 Space Odyssey”. Without Kubrick’s direction, the sequel becomes a mere parody of “2001: A Space Odyssey” and an explanation of the unsolved mysteries of the first film.
Of course, there must be many movie fans who have objections when writing here. After all, the entire “Matrix” trilogy (excluding the fourth one) can be regarded as one of the few classic trilogy in film history. However, in fact, the first “Matrix” brought visual and ideological impact to the audience, which is unique. “The Matrix” amazed the audience with its wonderful and fascinating world view, and of course those dazzling action scenes.
However, when the second and third films are released, many movie fans will still be disappointed, because neither sequel has gone further on the basis of the first. The same shocking visual effects and wonderful action scenes, but the storyline is obviously regressed, and the world view is no longer so novel.
All Jaws sequels can be called a blasphemy of Steven Spielberg’s classic film. Each of the sequels feels unnecessary because they repeat the same story that Steven Spielberg told. The storylines have become more and more outlandish, and the gags have become less and less luscious.
Of course, I think the reason is still to go back to Steven Spielberg. He finished the story of “Jaws” so perfectly that there is actually no content to write in the following works, and there is no breakthrough. All that’s left is ample money and the producers’ willingness to continue filming the horrors of the ocean on the beach.
What made “Rocky,” released in 1976, the best picture Oscar? Apparently it has nothing to do with how a man becomes the best boxer in the world. When Rocky and Adrian embrace in the ring at the end of the film, nothing else matters. ended. The beautiful story has been told. It’s a story about love, and the fact that love does shine, and that love gives Rocky the strength to stand up and keep fighting.
And every sequel that followed practically ditched that, the sequel became one adrenaline-filled movie, the sequel ended up being one movie after another about boxing about a man who might fill you up Power, the blood is high, but these sequels actually deviate from the first “Rocky” and fail to surpass the predecessor.
Nate Shyamalan’s alternative superhero movie “Undead” launched in 2000 brought a peculiar movie to the audience with its unique style of horror and suspense. In fact, “Undead” can be called a Shyamalan’s best movie ever. In fact, the end of the film left a deep impression on the audience and unlimited imagination.
After the editor lists five movies that should not have sequels, let’s go back and look at the sequels of “Avatar”. When “Avatar” was released in 2009, the discussion about the sequel never stopped. Even though the audience waited for many years, “Avatar 2” finally arrived late. And there have been constant discussions about whether “Avatar 2” can surpass the first one.
