The studio didn't even have the balls to say that the Magisterium was the Church. (Not that the Church in Lyra's world has much in common with any current religious institution in ours.) No way Balthamos and Baruch would have made it in, and I suspect the other anti-clerical stuff would have gotten axed as well. I also seriously doubt they'd have killed off Roger. Simpering cowards.

If another U.S. Marshals film starring Tommy Lee Jones were to be made, I'd want to see it! Of course, if the film were to be made, it would be the third one since the film named The Fugitive is pretty much the first.

God bless you and Tommy Lee always!!!

Y'know, I could get behind all of those. The Incredibles is probably the most likely to have a sequel; Brad Bird has said he'd like to do one, but wants a great script, and they just don't have one... yet. Crossing my fingers!

Enthusiastically seconded.

Likewise. Dunno if Crowe and Bettany are maybe a bit too long in the tooth by now? They might have to recast it.

Adding:

I'd love to see a Dark City sequel, if it were done well, with
SPOILER:
Murdock coming to grips with his awesome powers, dealing with boobytraps left behind by the Strangers, and figuring out where - and when - Earth is.


It probably couldn't be done, but a sequel to Limitless, which I really enjoyed, would be nice. Best movie I saw all last year.
SPOILER:
Eddie could continue to fence with Van Loon as his political career takes off - maybe we even see him reach the White House, but threatened by some revelation from his past as to either the drug, the death of the blonde, the Russian mobster or what really happened in his luxury apartment that fateful night...

WRT Hellboy I think they were waiting for the comic to resolve the prophecy thing. Have they gotten to that yet?

I remember Richter's involvement in this movie had some people speculating that this was what became of any idea for a Buckaroo sequel. No cite at all, just talk I remember from sci-fi cons. ymmv

I'm curious how Night of the Comet 2 would work. The zombies have already turned into red dust; would it just follow the same 6 survivors we saw at the end in their adventures in empty LA, or more survivor groups, or longer lasting zombies, or what? The comet isn't due to pass by Earth again for 65M yrs.

I'd leally like to see what happens a few yrs after District 9 when Christopher Johnson showing up with more ships and an intact hive, but I'm affraid any sequel would just turn into another standard alien invasion movie.

Hugo II: Rise of the Automata. Christopher Lee and Chloe Moretz join forces to recruit an unlikely band of misfits to do battle with the clockwork killers that are ravaging 1930s Paris. With Johnny Depp as Salvador Dali and Zach Galifianakis as Ernest Hemingway.

I'd like to see a Dark Crystal sequel. One was in the works but seems to have stalled. I'd rather see a prequel anyway. I'm reading Dark Crystal: Creation Myths right now and it's fantastic. I'd love to see a film adaptation.

The Incredibles

Brad Bird--you used your fans shamefully, made one really fine movie, with meaning & ideas, hidden in a child's cartoon.
And then threw it all away to make crummy spy films that are 2 hours of blowing things up, & 5 minutes of dialog.

E.T.

But you know it is like 30 years later and basically the world has been hounding these children as to when E.T. is coming back. The US Gov says that there never was an E.T. and the kids are full of shit. (Keys murdered the team that was in the house) Basically Gertie is crazy, Michael is a recluse and it is about Elliot's faith. E.T. does not return.

I'd kinda-sorta like to see a sequel to THEM!. Even though they could create amazing CGI ants, it just wouldn't be as fun as the original with people interacting with those cheesy "real" props.

You really owe it to yourself to fix that. ASAP is an understatement. If you have Netflix and 86 minutes, I'd say don't even bother replying to this post until you've fixed that.

Ferris Bueller Gets His. A sequel where Ferris is all grown up with three kids of his own and the identical twin daughters get revenge on behalf of Karma on their pop. Must have Matthew Broderick, who apparently hates the Ferris character.

Heh! I actually just posted on Facebook that I was going to see Les Miserables the weekend after Christmas with ticket and box of tissues in hand. Then clarified that they were for crying into, because my Facebook friends' list is a vile bunch of perverts, and I've never been that into Valjean/Javert slash, even with Crowe and Jackman in the roles.

Master and Commander. Also from 50 years earlier they could have done more Horatio Hornblower movies with Gregory Peck.

The 1972 biopic of Winston Churchill's early life "Young Winston" should have been followed with several more, perhaps one a decade with the same actor (Simon Ward) since Churchill was such a larger-than-life figure who lived an extraordinary life.

For some reason, any time I'm channel surfing and land on that, it is ALWAYS the "puffball virus" scene. Which always prompts me to keep surfing. Seriously, I've seen the scene four times and no other part of the movie.

I could do with "The Incredibles 2" as well, although at least the sequels (or prequels) to Monsters Inc and Despicable Me will be out in the next year or so.

Could reeeeeeally do without the latest Die Hard installment though.

Reluctantly agreed. The Reverse of the Medal was fantastic and heartbreaking, but I don't think the movie would work for the simple reason that the book builds and relies upon a lot of characterization from the novels that precede it.

I'd love to see The Mauritius Command, though. That would be a hell of a movie. Ditto The Ionian Mission or The Fortune of War.

Sahara. Clive Cussler's Dirk Pitt novels are fun to read; and Matthew McConaughey did a good job in playing the main character.

Unfortunately the legal battle between Clive Cussler the author and Philip Anschutz, the producer have pretty much guaranteed there will never be a sequel.

Then again, while I personally liked the movie, it didn't get rated too high on Rotten Tomatoes. So I'm thinking a sequel would not have happened anyway.

sahara is one of my favorite Bad Movies. I'm still hoping to show it at an upcoming Bad Film Festival, maybe on a double bill with 10,000 B.C.

Oooohhh Great Idea! First of all, that would finally give William Thatcher a chance to get with Kate, the "female blacksmith who bristles at being discriminated against." (description from Wikipedia)

Wow, I just discovered something cool. Laura Fraser (the female blacksmith) is also the character Lydia Rodarte-Quayle, the understandably nervous executive in the most recent season of Breaking Bad!

Oh Odin, no. Golden Compass was a interesting book full of great images, such as armored polar bears and the kids id-critters. The next two books would depress a hyena and bore a sloth. Horrible horrible preachy books and almost certainly worse films.

Incredibles- but a prequel.

Yes, the prequel to Who Framed Roger Rabbit would be nice.

The rest of the A&E Hornblower series, please! Same with the rest of Deadwood & Rome. Not to mention more of the A&E Nero Wolfe films.

Except that Jocelyn is such a bitch and so unworthy of William that I can at least pretend he ran off with the blacksmith babe instead.

I am also going to go against the flow: if you watch ONLY the Directors cut of Highlander 2, and be forgiving on #3, they aren't that bad. The original release of H2 did suck donkey balls, no doubt.

And, Heavy Metal 2 isn't bad. Just disappointing.
