    I never particularly liked the first two. The first was a little boring to me but it was charming enough, but I hate the second one. But, oddly enough, i'm actually really excited for the third. I think it's because with Pixar's track record, they know why people disliked the second one, so i'm confident that they'll learn from their mistakes and at least make it as good as the first one. And from the plot details i've heard, this really seems like the sequel they should've made in the first place, with more character development, more focus on the residents of Radiator Springs, etc. So I have higher hopes then ever for the franchise. I really hope this is their last movie though, since I don't want them to stretch it out farther than they need to, like they seem to be doing with the Toy Story movies.

    Yeah, I too agree that three is enough. Unless of course they come up with a really great plot for a fourth movie... ;)

    Personally, both films were great. The first one focused on charm, the second focused on action and charm. The twist was a pretty good one, IMO. Heck, even Roger Elbert liked Cars 2. Knowing him, that should say something. :p

    Once again, it's going to be a standalone story, which is a bit more reassuring to me. Maybe Pixar wanted to make a TV special for Valentine's Day, but needed more time to work with, so they thought about going theatrical.

    I hope we get to see what happened to Bo Peep and her three-headed sheep.

    I was actually talking about Cars and most movie franchises as a whole. Don't really have an opinion on Toy Story 4. I'll probably watch it and enjoy it, 'cuz that's what I do with films. :p

    You mean sequelitis isn't a disease?

    Unless an outbreak of West Nile, swine flu, or meningitis comes sweeping forth, sequelitis is all this thread will be good for. :smirk:

    Sequelitis is pretty much where movie sequels are constantly being made. It's not a disease at all.

    Cars 3 hasn't come out in the UK yet and I'm super excited for it. I don't think that it will disappoint me

    Cars 3 is actually #1 at the (US) box office right now.

    Speaking of sequelitis. . . .


    Hey, with a cast like Olivia Newton-John, Gilbert Gottfried, Kathie Lee Gifford, Margaret Cho, Fabio, Tony Hawk, Bret Michaels, Al Roker, and Charo as the Queen of England, how could this possibly kill any careers?

    Does anyone still give a crap about Sharknado? The joke has long since ran its course already! :mad:

    I honestly believe they're just trolling us at this point.

    Why does MALIFICENT need a sequel? Wasn't it supposed to be a prequel? How do you do a sequel to a prequel? Wouldn't the original technically be the sequel?

    So, it looks like nearly twenty years later, CHICKEN RUN may possibly be getting a sequel.

    Why? It wasn't necessarily one of Aardman's better movies.
  15. Old Thunder

    Old Thunder Well-Known Member

    Yes it was.

    I really don't see how a sequel to Chicken Run could work. It ended pretty cleanly, and a Mrs. Tweedy revenge plot would just come across as silly and trite. Plus, sequels with huge gaps have poor track records, unless you're Pixar.

    Nah, it was definitely a great movie and shame on you Snowth for thinking otherwise.

    In seriousness, I don't think it needs a sequel. The way it ended pretty much wrapped things up.

    Usually if a movie is really good, I wanna know what happens next to the characters.

    Chicken Run is so good that I don't.

    In regards to Chicken Run.

    I remember as a kid being super excited when I saw previews for it and found out it was from the same people who made Wallace and Gromit (all three late 80's/90's shorts were part of my childhood, and I still have them on VHS).

    I wonder what film series in the history of cinema has had the most sequels (counting direct-to-DVD ones). I'd say that not counting films that have been adapted into different spin-offs like Batman and Godzilla, it's probably The Land Before Time. But I could be wrong.
