I know, I know, sequels rarely live up to the standard their stellar predecessors set. But haven’t you ever watched a movie and thought, “Why is it over? I need more!” Well, here is a long list of films and some sequels I’ve always wanted to see.
The Goonies 2: One-Eyed Willy’s Revenge
He’s back, and he’s got a bone to pick (with the original cast of course – Sean Astin, I’m looking at you).
Titanic: Back in Action
I know what you’re thinking: “It sank. 🙄” But, what if they recreated the cruise for history and film enthusiasts... only for it to be hijacked by Tim Curry and a band of misfit pirates. Eh? Eh?
Facebook user Destiny B. suggested a sequel to Earth Girls Are Easy, and I couldn’t agree more. I’m thinking Earth Girls Aren’t That Easy, and I would definitely cast Damon Wayans Jr. and recast Jeff Goldblum to spearhead the hunky tribe of aliens. Lots of Julie Brown musical numbers are necessary, too, of course.
From CEO to cruise dance instructor, Bernie does it all. Dead.
It’s a sick obsession with the morbid, really. We don’t want to see spiders, but on the other hand, we need to see where that bad ass, Amazonian arachnid came from before wreaking havoc on the farm community of Canaima.
Stay Tuned Some More
Flipping the channel will flip the script, just don’t forget your lines or you’ll lose BIG time. Again. With a new cast and way better special effects.
Twitter user Drew M. said he’d love to see a sequel of Click, and I couldn’t agree more! Im not even going to try to imagine a sequel because the opportunities are endless. I’ll leave it up to the bigwigs.
Forget Post-Its. Now, they’ve invented the time machine.
Jenni F. said on Facebook that she’d like to see Bridesmaids 2, and I think to get those ladies back together again (especially after all of their individual recent successes) would be genius. Cheers to this idea!
Peter R. suggested a Who Framed Roger Rabbit sequel on Twitter and I can see it now: Jessica and Roger must find the kidnapper of their many baby bunnies before it’s too late. #ToonTownRevisited
And last but not least, Bill & Ted 3: Bill and Ted Face the Music. I’m not sure what this one will entail, but expect to see it in theaters in the near-ish future. Seriously, it’s really being made (so exciting, I know!). I’m predicting some rockin’ cameos, nostalgia, and the hilarious indie vibe we all love. Wyld Stallyns 4ever!
