  1. The Saw franchise is over kill. They should have stopped after the first or second movie, because after that they were not enjoyable. Some of the others aren’t too bad, but if you’re going to make so many sequels in a franchise, you should at least make them good! The remake of Halloween 1 of absolutely AWFUL. I am a fan of the original and most of the sequels, but Rob Zombie did a crap job of the remake.

  2. Im not a fan of sequels, unless its some comic strip like movie.

    • Generally, those are the best ones because there are many great stories which can be adapted for the screen. They could keep expanding Batman, Superman, X-Men or Iron Man if so desired.

  3. I totally agree with you!

  4. Some are not even as good as the first one, waste of money really but I do have to confess i love me some James Bond 🙂

    • Awesome! With the Harry Potter series, however, sequels were necessary to tell the entire story. Many of these were written just to be sequels and not adapted from original material, which in some cases does not do justice for the original film.

  6. Lots of fun to see this one! Especially since ‘Quantum of Solace’ was showing again on TV last night. I agree with you that the most successful franchises putting out multiple movies or sequels are those that either require more than one to tell the full story (Lord of the Rings, Harry Potter, et al.) or those that can be treated as separate episodes of a long-running series, like the comic book characters’).
