There is a difference between sequels and franchises. Some of these films you have listed are franchises for example Xmen and spiderman are set to run and run.

I think some of these sequels look pretty good, and some of the ones I have already seen are pretty good, but there are some that I just don't understand. What is with this Dumb and Dumberer movie????? I think that movie looks absolutely terrible, no wonder Jim Carrey wouldn't act in that movie. And Scary Movie? I don't even know what the Waynes Brothers were thinking when they made those. I think those movies are so distasteful. And don't even get me started on those horrifying sequels disney trys to pull off.~

In that case.........skip the Matrix sequels also........the entire story was outlined (not scripted to film yet) at the same time.........they could only shoot the first one because they didn't know if the movie was going to bomb or not and WB didn't want to put 300 million dollars behind a project done by sophomore directors...........anyway........Reloaded and Revolutions were part of the original concept for the Matrix back in '97..............they were shot later due to budget restraints (not knowing if the first movie was going to bomb or not)...........

as long as people watched them, they'll keep making sequences. it's easier and cheaper to do a sequence, i guess. the best movies are the originals anyway so i don't understand why most people watched the sequences...smile

Well if its a sequel of a movie you like you'll watch it right?!
Its bad when they make sequels that clearly only exist because the movie made big bucks and not because there is more story to tell.

Charlie's Angels is an example of that, isn't it?

x2 is a great example of a sequel being far better than the original(at least to me) i personally really hated x1 and wanted it to die. x2 was great though

Have you watched X1 after seeing X2 113? X2 makes X1 a much better movie. I was disapointed with the 1st too but after seeing and loving X2 I saw X1 again and now I think its awsome. But X2 is still better.
