Movies That Never Should Have Had A Sequel

So as soon as you start to play with different timelines, you're fucked, because it is supposed to be a serious movie, not a a BTTF where you can do anything just for the fun of it.

Exactly. The problem is that Terminator 2 is so damn good that we all just happily ignore that it ruins the whole concept.

Generally I agree, the original is always there. Except for this franchise:

The sequels remove all the unresolved mystery from the first film's premise, they also make it boring, but worst of all in trying to explain (and over explain) all the stuff that was not explained in the first movie, they revealed that it was kinda nonsense. A quest to forcefully awaken millions of blissfully ignorant people from their Matrix slumber, just because you personally have a problem with it, thus ensuring almost all of these millions would either drown, or slowly succumb to starvation, confused, terrifying deaths and the few that did survive would have decades/centuries of miserable existence on a bleak post-apocalyptic planet. The Matrix "heroes" are kind of a**holes when you think about Big Grin . I preferred when we just had one movie and I had not thought about it. I remember the feeling of cliffhanger excitement that the end of The Matrix left me with in 1999, I will never quite get that back, even though the film is still there to watch and enjoy.
