    I think I would be open-minded about an ALF movie, because it does seem like at least once a decade, ALF makes some kind of little amusing comeback (like Mr. T)... like back in the mid-2000s, when TV Land gave him his own talkshow, and Ed McMahon was his sidekick... that was pretty good.

    Plus, ALF's been depicted in different mediums before, besides puppetry, I know there was also an animated series, I believe it was done by David Feiss (the creator of Cow and Chicken).

    Tom Hanks' page on IMDb lists Toy Story 4 as "announced," as of August... I'm coming up short in my search for definitive or "official" announcements, though.

    Woody and the gang's tale has been told. The only way another Toy Story might work is if they came up with a film set in the same universe with a whole new cast of characters. Even then I doubt they'd be able to top the original series. We really don't need any more Toy Story films.

    Fully agreed. Small stories can be told in the form of movie shorts and comic books, but 90 minutes of character development? There's nothing left except them breaking and decaying and ending up in the dump for good. That's not exactly going to be a happy movie. Yet, it would fit in perfectly with the escalating drama the Toy Story movies have.

    Or, ya know, they could make a spin-off called "Lawn Ornament Story." Oh, wait, Gnomeo and Juliet already ripped that one off.

    I actaully think my own fanfic works better as a continuation since it's more of a T.V. series with Andy reading Bonnie stories he personally wrote as a child about the toys. Something like that would work much much much better. Or just the short films.

    I agree that Toy Story 3 left it off at a good point, and I have no clue how they'd continue the story after that. The shorts are awesome though, the new one with Rex and the bath toys was funny.
    As far as other sequels go, as long as they have a good story.

    It's not a crossover, it's a sequel, that apparently came out this year...

    Here's what netflix says:

    I smell Oscars for this one! :smirk:

    I have no idea how anyone finds Larry the Cable Guy funny, even his 30-second heartburn medication commercials are tough to get through.

    It was a direct to DVD special. I facepalmed when I saw it in Walmart's 5 dollar bargain bin.

    sequelitis is growing overseas now in the uk we had a comedy film come out called nativity about schools puting on a children nativity to see who nativity is the best and today i find out that a sequel coming out this year and all think was why why do companies keep puting out sequels for films that don't need them

    I'd love to see a Spinoff Buzz Lightyear of Star command Movie, but there's no doubt they'd toss the continuity of the cartoon series out the window. Seriously, X.R. would be awesome as a CGI character. other than that, only shorts, TV specials, and comic books would be able to hold side stories.

    I get when the movies make money, but there are those that just get DTV sequels when no one cared about the first one. I guess those movies do well on DVD when they hit discount, and there's money in it? Of course, and I say this all the time, with the advent of Redbox, I'm seeing crappy mockbusters and ugly CGI projects that look like they came off a home computer. That's probably why we're getting garbage DTV sequels.

    A GOOD sequel continues a story we want continued. A bad one ruins a story we liked before.

    Oh, gee, we should have seen KICK-*** 2 coming, we really should have.

    Okay, I haven't seen the original, I confess, but the fact that it has a sequel comes as absolutely no shock to me.

    I think I saw somewhere that Jim Carrey, star of Kick Donkey 2, has come out and condemned the film for being too violent and such and he won't be involved in the promotions for it. Good sign for a movie when one of its stars won't promote it.

    He only said that following (I believe) the Sandy Hook shootings.

    Because there was totally a comic book version of Kick *** 2? There are at least 3 KickAnus comics, I don't see how this is sequelitis so much as an adaption of another story.

    I am exceedingly disappointed with Jim Carrey on this one. Everyone else involved in the movie thought he did an awesome job. Of all people in Hollywood, Jim should know that movies aren't a direct correlation between film violence and crazy people with access to guns. I liked his Funny or Die and all, but to come out and not support a movie that everyone involved wanted him in that's (possibly) one of the best things he did in years (He was freaking Awesome in Burt Wonderstone) is just a very disappointing action. Sure, we're all upset that Sandy Hook happened and nothing has come out of it to prevent that from happening again, but Carrey's beef is with idiot survivalist gun hoarders (the mother of the shooter was one) and politicians who are essentially hos for the NRA. Not a fantasy movie.

    I actually wondered that same thing. :confused: I know a lot of people were nostalgic for the show (I'm not, although my mother tells me I loved the show when I was a kid), but I thought even the diehard fans hated the movie.
