Coming soon: A bunch of sequels nobody wants to see

OK, maybe some people want to see these. But I don't.

Bwp - Florida filmmakers Eduardo Sanchez and Daniel Myrick, who scored huge with their 1999 debut The Blair Witch Project and have rarely been heard from since, are contemplating another trip into the woods.

"We're thinking about going back and seeing what happened directly after the first film finished," Sanchez told the BBC. "I think it will have some kind of video element in it, but it won't be a first person hand-held movie."


Terminator - Although Terminator: Salvation was a critical and commercial disappointment, director McG is proceeding with plans for a Terminator 5. "We're working on it right now," McG told ign.com. "We're very far down the line with the story for that – for the next picture, and even the picture after that, and feeling good and we'll see where that takes us."

McG also owned up to one of my complaints about Salvation, which was the movie was too damn serious. "I think the film missed some of the fun that Jim [Cameron] brought to the early pictures," McG said. "I'm a disciple of Jim... We'll bring a little bit more relief in that [fun] capacity. Not to the degree that you saw in the third picture, but a little bit more than ours."


Hugh-jackman-wolverine-full-fury - Hugh Jackman has told MTV that a sequel to the craptacular X-Men Origins: Wolverine will center on a story arc originally conceived on the comic book page by Frank Miller and Chris Claremont that takes the prickly mutant to Japan.

"There are so many areas of that Japanese story," Jackman said. "I love the idea of this kind of anarchic character, the outsider, being in this world full of honor and tradition and customs and someone who's really anti-all of that, and trying to negotiate his way."


Turkey  - I'll believe it when I see it, but for now, Paramount Pictures says they are proceeding with a sequel to G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra.

The only sequel I really want to see is to the Adventures of Buckaroo Banzai Across the 8th Dimension.

can't fight this feeling anymore

Jeez, I don't want to see any of those. Not even the Hugh Jackman one. Terminator Salvation makes me not even want to watch the first or second movie again, it was so bad.

I definately want another Terminator film. Been waiting forever for them to get to the damn war against the machines. But I don't want that asswipe McG anywhere near it! He clearly has no clue how to direct these films. He's the main reason it was subpar. The whole thing is just beyond his grap. How do you have Christian Bale in our movie and NOT know how to direct him? Ridiculous.

I neverl iked The Blair Witch to begin with so i'll avoid that one like the plague.

There will never be a good Wolverine film as long as FOX owns the rights. Wolverine should have been outstanding. Instead it was the typical, emotionless, shallow pile of shit you would expect coming from that studio. It's obvious now that Bryan Singer was the only reason why the first two X-Men films worked. It's sad too, cuase you can tell Hugh Jackman was putting his best efforts into that film. Unfortunately he had nothing to work with except a very badass Liev Schrieber, who also had nothing to do really. Complete waste of a film.

I had fun with the G.I. Joe movie, but it definately needs another director. I would watch another one. I've seen worse saturday matine brain killers then that one. Like the new Transformers for instance, which was almost unwatchable.
