Movies to Ponder

So for fun I like to surf IMDb for upcoming movies. A lot of the times I am either in shock or I am excited about what I see. It's usually prequels, sequels or remakes that get me all wound up. I decided to take a gander at what Will Smith is up to. Here is what I found.

Bad Boys 3 - I have to admit, I have actually never seen the first two for some reason so I don't really have an opinion about this one. You can tell me what you think.

Hancock 2 - I thought the original was okay. It had a good idea for a movie but it didn't deliver the way I thought it would. I don't think it need a sequel.

I, Robot 2 - I liked the first one a lot more than I thought I would, it was entertaining. I don't see how they could make a sequel.

Untitled I Am Legend Prequel - Better than a sequel I guess.

The Karate Kid 2 - The new one has only gotten a 5.7 on IMDb. Is he jealous of his son that he has to be in the sequel?

Flowers for Algernon - I remember reading the book in school. Should be interesting.

Independence Day 2 - Umm, why? I thought the first one was pretty clear cut.

Independence Day 3 - Okay, I'm convinced Hollywood is just making sequels to everything now.

Men in Black III - This one actually has a scheduled release date. I'm excited about this sequel. I loved the first Men in Black and the short lived cartoon. I hope they do it right. Tommy Lee Jones and Rip Torn are back in this one.

Here are some others to ponder.

Kill Bill: Vol. 3 - I love Quentin Tarantino but I don't know about this one. I thought everyone got taken care of in the second one. Has a temporary date of 2014.

Beverly Hills Cop IV - It's about time Eddie Murphy goes back to being a bad-ass, I was getting tired of the children's movies.

Die Hard 5 - Bruce Willis is indestructible. I loved the last one. He's not too old yet.

The NeverEnding Story - With Leonardo Dicaprio. This one doesn't need to be remade. The original was great.

Zoolander 2 - Seriously?

Little Fockers - We all saw this one coming.

Monsters Inc. 2 - I am excited about this one. The first one was so creative and what else is Billy Crystal doing?

The Hangover 2 - It can't be better than the first one, can it?

I think that is enough for now. I could put 100 more but I don't want to melt your brains. So which ones should and shouldn't be made?

I like to roam IMDB as well. Agree with you on most of that!

Wow, I had no idea there were THAT many sequels on the way! Some of them - Kill Bill 3, Hangover 2 - sound interesting because the directors involved have a good track record. And I'm interested in the Independence Day sequels just because I don't really know how they'd make them work. The aliens attack again? Different aliens attack? We go Starship Troopers and launch an invasion of their homeworld?

Saw the trailer for Little Fockers and I think it will rock!

Boy he's dusting off all his franchise hits.

*snort* I love your take on this. Just pondering the name... It's a rare sequel that measures up in my little world...

Pat Tillett said...

Seriously, who friggin' died and left Hollywood to Will Smith?

Not many of these I'd be interested in. A prequel to I Am Legend might be interesting. Instead of Independence Day sequels they should just combine the budget with the District 9 Sequel to make it bigger.
