  • valereth reply Also I really think The Dark Knight Rises gets too much hate. I get that it is not a perfect film...and there is a plot twist at the end of it is awful, but I still think there is a lot to like about it. Especially Bane. Bane is awesome in that film
  • pokematic reply -5:30 "director didn't like the original all that much." Teen Titans Go anyone?
  • [ – ] ScottSand523431 reply For your "Letting too much time pass", there's Ace Ventura Jr., Son of the Mask, Dumb and Dumber To, and now Bigger Fatter Liar (which, btw is basically a remake with a video game pitch instead of a homework assignment/movie script). It's also kind of the case with Rory and Lorelai Gilmore in Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life. Instead of being in the situations we see her in in what was supposed to be more closer to right after we left off, it's instead 8 or so years later. Ones that don't make as much sense to have stagnated in. Star Wars The Force Awakens is an example of succeeding even with the gaps
    • [ – ] ScottSand523431 parent reply Also, James Cameron has already taken too long on his Avatar sequels
      • [ – ] Florella parent reply Wasn't Avatar also pretty poorly received? Or was that just my social network? I mean, I liked it, but I was under the impression it caught a lot of flak.
        • [ – ] ScottSand523431 parent reply Doesn't matter. He's committed
          • Florella parent reply That much is true, he's been committed since years before Avatar was released. I wonder if he's waiting for some awesome technology to come out before he'll release anything.
  • RossLovesMovies reply People like money. People don't like putting in a lot of effort.
  • Justtranscend reply Yeah a lot of sequals don't measure up to the original. I think cause the original is fresh. It worked. The sequal could be good but it maybe a way to make money off the first 1.
  • IvanSkodje reply I must say; I find the lack of "First", "Notification squad" and "I hope you have a nice day"-spam wonderful. Thank you Vidme users for being better than that.
  • itsOnlyRawman reply i personally was always a big fan of sequels growing up and it started with my love for Super Mario Bros 2. a game which is considered not very good by a lot of people but for me it was my favourite growing up.
  • valereth reply But Clerks 2 is great
