He sued them for the first one. They were going to call it : "Stephen King's The Lawnmower Man". They were obviously on mind-altering drugs. Or else they just hadn't read the story. Or else they just skipped to the bit where someone gets chopped up with a Lawnmower and went, "This story's cool, let's steal the title, make a movie and change everything except that scene!"

Where's Highlander II? That is, by far, the worst sequel of all time. The immortals are aliens?! What the hell! I don't think the writers even SAW the original. Thank God that Highlander III ignored it...but that was pretty terrible too.

Re: bad sci fi sequal's

The only thing I disliked about BTTF 3 was Mary Steenburgenthingie's character. Both the actress and the character annoy the hell out of me. The rest of it was fine.

Re: bad sci fi sequal's

Only a little, the parts of the trilogy seem to dovetail one another quite nicely most of the time. But BTTF 1 and BTTF 2 are much better, naturally.

Re: bad sci fi sequal's

Well, the first tends to be original and exiciting, the second is normally a developement on the first ie exploring the depths that the first didn't do, and then the third, well, it's just normally answering a calling from the fans. Then when it's delivered it shuts them up and they demand no more.

Re: bad sci fi sequal's

So many to chose from. Well lets see Lawnmower man 2 that was crap. Then we have all the SW preques. I agee with becks on species 2. I love ghostbusters but even I think two was bad. Now Back to the future 3 was just one too many in that line. Highlander 2 was really, really bad. Men in Black 2 was just bad. Now as to Alien3 or Ressurection hmmmmm, well I thought Alien3 was just a bad remake of Alien. In a sick way I still liked it. And as for Ressurection, I watched it again and well um oh damn it becks you had to brag it up so much that I watched it again and saw that threw all the cgi it is a good movie. And how did Predator 2 make the list? That's one of my favorite movies.

Men In Black?
I just noticed that there is no Men In Black forum. Is there a particular reason for this? There are other sci-fi comedies worthy of forums present...
