Do you want coffee, boss?
Yes. Some cream, two sugars.
Boss.. Sugar will kill you... I mean do you really want dilute the delicious flavor of coffee with all that crap? If you're hardcore you'll drink it, straight up black!
Interesting proposition. But the Flame protects me from harm, so sugar and cream are no big threat. Bring 'em on.
Boss, if coffee were meant to taste that way it would, your really insulting the coffee by throwing a bunch of **** in
I'll remember next time not to hurt it's feelings. Give me cream and sugar.
Fine... But you're getting sweet and low and half and half
The question of whether "The Phantom Menace" is eligible as a "disappointing sequel," when it was set before the original Star Wars trilogy, has now been raised on several different forums. Including this one. My answer is: Yes, it's eligible!
Here's my reasoning:
Other Star Wars movies had previously been released. They gave the audience certain expectations for the future. Then more Star Wars movies came out. If people were disappointed, it was because of their fond memories of the "previous" installments in the Star Wars series.
I figure what matters is our chronology -- the sequence in which the silly things were released -- and not the "internal chronology" -- the different times at which they were set! After all, what I'm trying to measure here is how disappointed we were by a certain film because of what we had previously seen done in another film in the same series!
i can care so f-ing less.
let's get back to the topic at hand.
I nominate: Blade Trinity, The Crow 2 and The Ring 2
Slapshot 2: Breaking the Ice. Totally. Unncessary. Sequel.
If you haven't seen the first Slapshot, get it now. Paul Newman is great as Reggie Dunlop, a hockey player close to retirement. Strother Martin is classic as the GM Joe McGrath. And you have the Hansons.
[after meeting the Hansons]
Reggie Dunlop: You cheap sonofa*****. Those guys are ******s.
McGrath: I got a good deal on those boys. Scout said they showed a lot of promise.
Reggie Dunlop: They brought their ****in' TOYS with 'em.
McGrath: Id rather have em playin with their toys than playin with themselves
Reggie Dunlop: They're too dumb to play with themselves. Boy, every piece of garbage that comes into the league you gotta buy it
McGrath: Reg, Reg, that reminds me. I was coachin' in Omaha in 1948 and Eddie Shore sends me this guy who was a terrible *********or. He would get deliberate penalties so he could get over in the penalty box all by himself and damned if he wouldn't ...
You don't believe in pulling your punches, do you? Just reading that list made me wince!
Kevin Spacey and Frank Langella suck ass? I suggest you get your head out of your ass.
And have you seen the movie? It shouldn't be eligible for this little batch of nominations till June 30th when people have actually seen it.
Robocop 2 was the story revolved around that special drug and that CEO that turned from good(in the first movie) to pure evil?
No duh, dude.
I was just commenting to Kevin that I thought Menace was worse than AOTC. I already put in my vote for this thread.
It can't be worse. Liam Neeson was in it. Sure it was hella disappointing, but not as bad as AOTC. AOTC takes the cake with it's pathetic dialogue (especially the allegedly "romantic" scenes). Menace had the kickass lightsaber duel at the end as well. Yeah, Menace had some pretty bad dialogue, but none as cringeworthy as the dialogue that Anakin and Padme spouted off to each other.
The Matrix Reloaded
The Ring Two
Very true, but AOTC had more action, Yoda kicking a$$, a FAR more interesting story, and did I mention...no Jar Jar "hijinks"?
Charlie's Angels: Full Throttle.
It made Batman & Robin look like a masterpiece.
Transporter 2, it was so unrealistic.
The whole movie was a "What The Hell?" moment.
Transporter 2 was just blech for me.
I just didn't get into the story.
since when does "more action" mean a better film? I'm not sure I'd call Yoda jumping around like Sonic the Hedgehog "kicking a$$". the story was nowhere near interesting. the romance, which supposedly was the driving force of the movie, felt tripe and unrealistic. not to mention Baby Fett. just as annoying as little Ani (and probably an even worse actor), but in his own special way.
Blade Trinity, Revenge of the Sith ( I'm a huge Star Wars fan too) , Dumb and Dumberer
"The Honeymooners", which was a sequel to the TV series.
Nah...I'd say both Matrix sequels.
Yeah that's the one
