Movies you wish had a sequel (but didn't)

Since so many movies have sequels (and many of the sequels sucking) I thought it would be interesting to talk about movies that did not have a sequel but should have.

I'll start it off with my pick: Valley Girl.

If Julies friends gave her grief the first time she dated Randy, can you imagine the shitstorm they cause now that she's hooked up with him again? Especially since she helped ruin their prom to do it.

And I'd love to hear the conversation between her and Randy about how cold around the heart she was when she dumped him to go back with Tommy.

And speaking of Tommy; what was with that reservation at the Hollywood Sheraton? Did Tommy Boy think he was going to score? And seeing it was Julie and Randy that went instead, did Randy score?

Alright. Your turn.

Witness II: Revenge of the Amish
Walking Off That Creme Brle with Andre

On a more serious note, I would suggest that a sequel to When Harry Met Sally might have been good. We know the characters and their funny quirks, now let's see how that plays out within the commitment of marriage. Might be interesting to hunorously yet intelligently explore themes of expectation, disappointment, and aging as a couple.

I'd love to see a few more films in the "Joe vs the" series.

I wish The Golden Compass had made enough to warrant sequels because I'd love to see a children's movie with gay angels and an insane God.

When I was a kid I was super gung ho about Star Wars 7-9 but now that it's happening I'm a bit wary.

Not strictly sequels, but I'd like to see a few more Tom Robbins novels adapted for the screen.

I wouldn't mind an Indiana Jones and the Fate of Atlantis.

Serenity definitely needs to be a trilogy.

More of a DVD TV movie thing but I'd like to see a few more installments of DS9 and Stargate Universe.

I know it was a gag but that's no reason not to make History of the World part II.

Streets of Fire was intended to be the first part of a trilogy that never came to be.

Woe that it was not so.

I would like to see a sequel to Blade Runner that isn't about any of the major characters from that movie. I know that Soldier with Kurt Russell is supposed to be set in the same universe, but it wasn't really what I was looking for.

Who Framed Roger Rabbit --- they apparently wanted to do this, but it's hard to get the various squabbling parties to agree. There was a follow-up comic, not to mention the three Roger Rabbit theatrical shorts (anything that gives us more Roger, and especially more Jessica, is welcome), but another movie coulda been good.

I'd like to see them do a sequel to John Carter, but it ain't gonna happen. Too bad.


I loved Nicholas Meyer's TV movie Judge Dee and the Monastery Murders, which introduced me to Robert H. van Gulik's series of mysteries basede upon the very real Djien-djieh Dee. He was trying to get it made as a series, but the networks balked, possibly at the cost of recreating T'ang dynasty China every week, or maybe because they didn't think Americans would go for a series with only Chinese characters*. They compromised and cast the lead in a detective series set in modern-day San Francisco, called Chang!. That's like making a TV series out of Gone With The Wind and setting it in present-day Georgia.

I heard that Paul Veerhoeven was going to adapt Dee for the big screen, but I was either mistaken, or he changed his mind.

There was a Chinese Dee movie about a year or two ago, but it was a martial arts wirework epic. That';s like really wanting to see Spielberg's Lincoln, but your spouse rents Abraham Lincoln -- Vampire Hunter instead.


I want more Dee, dammit! The real thing.



*Although, ironically, the only cast member not of Asian ancestry was the guy playing Dee himself, Khigh Dhiegh (Real name: Kennetrh Dickerson, whose initials were phonetically spelled). The British had a six-episode Dee series in the 1960s, so it lasted longer there, but most, if not all, roles were played by non-Asians like Timothy Dalton.

I'm on board with The Warriors too. I always wondered if Swan really did just take off, or if stuck around Coney and led the boys in more bops.

Of course, I like to image the actors in other roles are playing out the sequel. So in my world, Swan went on to be a roller-skating pussy who fell in love with Olivia Newton-John, and after Ajax (real name: Ganz) got out of juvi, he moved to San Francisco to fuck with Eddie Murphy and Nick Nolte.

A Knight's Tale. I suppose it had the happy ever after ending, but there are SO many directions it could have gone in. Adimar told William that he had entered into negotiations with Jocelyn's father for her... Just because William was made a knight, that does not mean those negotiations would have stopped.

Would have loved to seen more of my beloved characters.

When Worlds Collide

Although I don't think I'd like them filming the Wylie and Balmer novel After Worlds Collide



Forbidden Planet actually did have a sorta sequel, a much lower-budget black and white The Invisible Boy, but I'd like to see a real sequel.


Similarly, they gave Schoedsack and Cooper less than half the budget and only nine months to film the sequel to King Kong, so they came up with the overly padded and comic-themed Son of Kong. But they coulda done much better given enough time and money. I'd love to see that.

"The Incredibles" is definitely at the top of the list for me.

Other movies? Any super-hero type of movie could go with a sequel, like "Mystery Men 2" or "Another Undercover Brother" or "Bigger Trouble in Smaller China".

On a side note: When I was a kid, I used to joke with my brother that the least essential sequel would be "Micki + Maude 2". But somehow fantasy has merged with reality in my brain and sometimes I'm not sure whether "Micki + Maude 2" exists or not! So maybe they should really make a sequel to "Micki + Maude" to put me out of my misery.

Ghostbusters 3 is coming......eventually. It was supposed to be out this year, but filming got pushed back to fall of next year, unfortunately.

I always wanted a sequel to Will Smith's Wild Wild West. Also would love to see one for Evolution, Slither, and Night of the Comet. (Yea, I love cheesy movies.)

I am a sucker for post apocalyptic stuff, so I have always wanted to see sequels to stuff set in them to see how society starts to rebuild itself.

What happened after The Day After?

How does society develop after The Stand was over?

Though to answer the OP, I would love an Equilibrium sequel, as well as a decent sequel to The Last Starfighter. Lot of meat on the Starfighter bones, imo...

There still isn't an agreed upon script. Murray is in as much as he is out. It's probably not going to happen.

The reboot is more likely. I'd have been happy if they had done GB3 in the late 90's and used the original concept of Ghost Busters as municpal workers like garbage men. Sandler, Farley, Rock and Spaid would have been great.

Would absolutely love to see Gillermo Del Toro do a sequel to Hellboy. No really - I liked the second one. Maybe some backstory into how Johann Kraus got that way, and a revisit from the Death character where Liz really does experience the consequences of the deal she made. I would want to the entire movie to be like that "Toro-esque" scene with the Death character, and dial back the slapstick.

I'm very wary of suggesting sequels to movies I love because they so often suck, but if I had to pick one (other than the already mentioned Buckaroo Banzai) is would probably be Ronin, but only if the right director and writer(s) were involved, and both Robert De Niro and Jean Reno reprised their roles.

Similarily, The Breakfast Club. What the hell happened next?
It was a Saturday so how did the rest of the weekend go? How was Monday morning when they all went back to school? Did Bender really spent 2 months of Saturday detentions? How's Carl doin'? LOL

Don't even get me started on Sixteen Candles or Fast Times at Ridgemont High!

God, I remember that, I hassled the poor guy at the video store for years about a release date!

Here the end credits with that snazzy little musical number!

Sword and the Sorcerer (1982) also promised viewers to see the continuing adventures of Talon in Tales of an Ancient Empire. This "not really a sequel" was finally produced and released on DVD in January 2012.
The film ends with the promise of another sequel, Red Moon. Arrgg, will they never learn!?

Mercy, eloped with Ajax but after he beat her she moved back in with her father, Ted Knight and his gay roomate Monroe.

Luther also went the San Fran to fuck with Eddie and Nick until he was "let go" by the Governator!

Rembrandt dropped the nick for Ricardo and went on to lead The Bloodhound Gang.

D.J. goes on to become "The Chief" of the Gumshoes and swears vengeance on Carmen Sandiego and her rival gang V.I.L.E.

Vermin became a news anchor in Dutchess County, NY.

Cochise became a bit part actor.
Snow became a NY State Trooper and Cleon... actually went on to work for the New York Transit Authority!

Precisely what I came in to post. I had heard that a sequel idea was being half-heartedly discussed, but that it had to do with Jack Aubrey's trial for stock-fixing. Bah! That would be the last storyline I'd choose for a movie.

Like you, I'd prefer to see espionage during the time of the Napoleonic wars.
