Hollywood sure has a way of packaging old ideas and selling it to the public. Not to say there’s anything wrong with that-- but let’s be honest, remakes and sequels are often hit or miss. The reimagining of a story already told is an art form that many cannot follow through with. How many movies have you seen that just butchered the original? Or couldn’t even come close to it with a ten-foot pole, that’s how shoddy it was. But despite getting all those crappy sequels or trilogies (I’m looking at you Twilight!) the fans still want to see more. They want to see their favorite characters and storylines live on and hey, it doesn’t hurt to check in every once in awhile. But just because there’s potential for the next installment, does it mean we should pursue the story? Well, that’s what we’re here to talk about today.
Most movies should never have sequels, like Speed 2: Cruise Control or Grease 2- those were total train wrecks. And don’t even get me started on Dirty Dancing: Havana Nights. That movie is an abomination in and of itself. But that’s beside the point because every so often we get a movie that we love so much we just wish it had a follow up. Now, who’s to say if the following list would turn out to be best sellers at the box office, but we want to see them nonetheless.
Here’s a list of the most wanted movie sequels according to both the internet and myself. Some of these might have a sequel or remake in the works, but who knows if they’ll ever come to fruition. So let’s get to it!
12 The Goonies
10 Mrs. Doubtfire
8 The Breakfast Club
7 Age of Adaline
6 Inside Out
James Cameron sure knows how to make good movies, and this one was phenomenal! Love, new worlds, new species, battle for survival… how can you go wrong? This was probably one of the most visually stimulating and satisfying movies to come out in the last decade. And by golly, we would love to see what’s going on with Jake Sully and his Na'vi woman! Oh, and we want to make sure that the poisonous world is, you know, not taking all these lives. The Verge recently reported that Avatar 2 wouldn’t be coming out in 2017 after all… say what? Disappointed fans around the world unite! Although we might have to wait a bit longer to see the story continue at least we can take solace in knowing that in the next few years we might be able to revisit this world and have a blast.
