Indiana Jones V

Transformers 3

Die Hard V

Terminator V

No More raping the Alien And Predator franchises,  at least stop them from making more films.

I hope that rocky VII never happens.

Not sure i want to see Rambo V either. 

For the love of god no more star wars films period.  Clone Wars was a piece of shit that bombed when the pieces of shit prequels made Lucas a billionaire.

Ghostbusters III seriously as if II was not retarded and kiddy enough to ruin the franchise.

I hope Universal never uses the right to make a Back to the Future IV.  They could legally make one without Robert Zemeckis or Bob Gale.

I also hope JAWS V never happens or Jurassic Park IV

Anything that involves bringing back or "reimagining" a dead franchise ala Friday the 13th, Halloween, Nightmare on Elm Street, Alien, Predator, the list goes on....

I'm all for superior versions of stories that have already been filmed, people forget that some big name films started out as novels (The Exorcist, Jaws, Hellraiser, etc) so doing another film isn't strictly speaking a remake, just another version of a story already from another medium.

And sometimes remakes or reboots really do work (Bond, Batman, Battlestar Galactica have all been transformed into exciting new incarnations of their former selves).

One film I am dreading however is a remake, how anyone thought that remaking Edge Of Darkness in contemporary USA with Mel Gibson in Bob Peck's role was a good idea is beyond me but to have the original director and producer do it, let's just say if the Devil is real he may be a little less rich now but his collection of souls has grown a tad.

I wish they would stop the 'reboot' bandwagon.  Yes, Batman and Star Trek were good reboots, but I've heard reboots in the works for Alien, Buffy the Vampire Slayer, and other series that would just best be left alone for a while.

Anything with Johnny Depp. Dear god I used to like him but every movie he has been in for the last 13 years have sucked.

I guess I am just not a Tim Burton fan.

Here is my list of films that shouldnt be made EVER

Dark Shadows (it was a 60's television show)

Alice In Wonderland (getting high and watching  the disney one is perfect dont try to beat perfection)

Transporter 4 actually scratch that Jason Statham shouldn't be allowed to act in any film ever again

Spider Man 4 they shouldn't have made 1,2, and 3.

Batman III Nolan's vision of Batman was only good with Heath Ledger. So Heath is dead and therefore he should not make any more.

007  I am sorry to james bond fans but. I think we have beat that horse past death.

Michael Jacksons News Coverage.  Too soon. I apologize but this Saga of MJ is getting annoying. Let the man rest in peace.

COWBOY BEBOP  I have loved the anime for years and I am a hardcore fan. To hear that they are making a movie made me a little woozy. But to hear that Keanu Reeves is starring in it MADE ME PUKE.

Mummy 4  Please stop making these movies. They should have stopped at the first one.

Exorcism/Haunting Movies I think the horror genre is dying. I don't get scarred when I watch a horror film anymore. But what I can't stand is the numerous Exorcism movies. I don't think possessions are scarey enough. Let's get back to zombies with face melting scenes.

Seth Rogan Movies He isn't funny. His characters are pretty much the same guy with a different name. If this guy does something new I will like him

REMAKES/LIVE ACTION CARTOON REMAKES The countless number of beloved classics we have in this life seem to get completely fucked up in films today. If the original is good we can just leave it at that.

Nobody in Hollywood has an original thought these days. It is like they say "hey people like this LETS MAKE MONEY OFF OF IT"

So they go with there wheelbarrels in hand and they slap the name of a classic and do a total remake. Then they roll down to the bank and fill there wheel barrells up and look for another classic to make a quick mill on.

 

 

"The other versions will disappear. Even the 35 million tapes of Star Wars out there won’t last more than 30 or 40 years. A hundred years from now, the only version of the movie that anyone will remember will be the DVD version [of the Special Edition], and you’ll be able to project it on a 20’ by 40’ screen with perfect quality. I think it’s the director’s prerogative, not the studio’s to go back and reinvent a movie." - George Lucas

Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs.  Great, simple story - no need for expansion the way they did.  Alas, it is already made.

 

Do we REALLY need another Shrek?  Or a Kung Fu Panda TV series, Dreamworks?

I can't help but see this statement as really freakin' weird, considering Heath Ledger was only in one out of the two Nolan Batman films. Seems odd to say that the series is no good without him and ought to die with him, when it didn't even start with him in the first place. Would you really want three Batman films featuring the Joker

I really think the Heath Ledger thing is a bunch of bullshit anyway. Sure, he had an interesting take on the Joker, but it was way too over hyped. Might have been impressed with it if we hadn't all been bombarded with half orgasmic news stories about how brilliant Ledger's Joker was for months after his death. By the time I did actually see his preformance in the movie, I didn't find it quite as brilliant as it was hyped to be, and the fact that the movie was pretty uneven and at some points nonsensical really didn't help impress me much. I think most people just found it orgasmically amazing, because the idea that it was orgasmically amazing was shoved down all of our throats literally for months before the films release.

Since The Dark Knight ended on a really weak cliff hanger, I think a trilogy might not be a bad idea, just to finish off the story and recover for the dip it took with DK. But I definitely don't think we need more than that.

I also think a 3rd film is the best idea just to get this version of Batman into the bat cave, and into a kind of format that would work if the series was handed over to a new team (not re-booted}. But only if they plan to do a series of stories with an older Batman (and 12 year old Robin) a few years down the road from this one.

Well. I didn't like Batman Begins. And Christian Bale was annoying as batman. He grunted the whole damn movie. But it is my opinion. I would like another Batman movie as long as Johnny Depp isn't in it like some of the rumours are saying. But it has to be as good as Batman 2.

 I don't know, if they could somehow make a script worthy of Rachel Weisz, the series might be salvagable.

The Hardy Men.  Based off of The Hardy Boys, only they've grown up and had a falling-out.  Dear old dad dies, and it's a comedy.  Go Hollywood... NOT!  I'd love a serious Hardy Boys movie based on one or two of the original books.

As soon as I saw this post, I was thinking it must be a Will Ferrell project. So it's Ben Stiller, close enough.  I was a big fan of the old 70's show, and remember watching it right before Battlestar Galactica on Sunday Nights.

Whoa! I totally thought you were making a joke with the whole Hardy Men thing. I am very sorry to see it was real, at least I got a good laugh out at what I thought was a joke before I realized it was real and died a little inside.

Beverly Hills Cop IV is in development. Murphy is expected to begin work on Beverly Hills Cop IV sometime in the near future, and it is expected that producer Jerry Bruckheimer will not participate in the fourth installment of the series.

 

STOP THIS!

 

Jerry Bruckheimer and Don Simpson were not involved in III, and it was so cheap looking and generic.

 

You know if this is made that it will be mostly recycled fomula jokes from the first two films, sprinkeled with typical old age jokes.

Come on, do they realy need to drag Judge Reinhold out of the where are they now file? They should be saving him up for "Fast Times II". Yet another movie I never want to see be made.

Remember back when we had actors like Charlton Heston? Who'd refuse to do sequels on principle, feeling that ultimately they could never be quite as good as their predecessor. 

This is why he had such a small role in Beneath the Planet of the Apes. He didn't want to do the film at all, but since they couldn't do it without him, he offered to do it if they would kill off his character in the first ten minutes. They agreed, and later asked him if they could modify the first ten minutes thing in order to have him killed in the climax, but still write it in such a way that he still only has about ten minutes or so screen time, which obviously he agreed to. He also suggested they blow up the planet at the end of the film, and was happy when they decided to go with that, because he thought that would mean there couldn't be any more sequels at all... :D

Anyway, too bad more actors don't take this kind of approach and pride to their acting careers. Instead, they have no problem doing the same thing over, and over, and over, and over, and over, and over, and over... so long as they keep getting paid for it.

I love Beneath The Planet Of The Apes it used to give me nightmares as a child, I also like Conquest Of The Planet Of The Apes (even if the political side of the side is rather heavy handed). I've always had a taste for the bleak.

Even today some actors know better.  Look at Sean Connery and John Rhys Davies they both turned down Indiana Jones IV and look very smart for doing so.  The film turned out to be a turkey, but still made almost 800 million. It is a crazy world indeed.

When was the last big payday Harrison Ford had? I can understand why he took the job, but it couldn't  really have furthered his craft or reputation as an actor amongst actors.

I mean he has made good acting performances in films that have made like ten cents compared to star wars and indiana jones.

And He has had flop after flop.  A quick and easy winner, and money maker that was money almost gauranteed in the  bank that required little work like Indy IV is understandable.  I mean nobody really liked Hollywood Homicide and Firewall.

The jack ryan films and the fugitive were money makers to a lesser degree than popcorn films.

If only Connery was so able to see into the future which i doubt, he would not have done League of Unextraodinary crap movie, or really he should have said never again will i play bond.

John Rhys Davies? John Rhys Davies? The same John Rhys Davies who chose to be in "Anaconda III" instead of "Indy IV"? "Anaconda III", a movie it's producers knew was so bad that it was dumped straight onto Sci-Fi channel & DVD.  A move that rates only 2.8 out of 10 stars at IMDB.

 

"Anaconda III">>>  http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1137996/

 

Ok, I can forgive him one mistake. Sometimes their agents can get them involved in a project that turns out to be a turd. But then why would he do "Anaconda IV" this year?

Well, if Nolan is in charge, you will never see Robin in any of the films.  This is a young Batman and adding in a 12 year old who wears a bright red and green outfit really doesn't fit into this universe.  And if they do bring in Robin, count on Bale leaving because he doesn't want Robin, either.  I recall him saying something along the lines of he would chain himself outside WB studios to protest. 

And with a new slate of DC films making their way toward production, I don't think that WB is really going to depend much on Batman.  Green Lantern is getting released in two years and the Flash is getting his script written as we speak.  So there's two franchises right there and you can never forget about Superman, even if WB is clueless on what they want to do with him.  They've seen Marvel's success and the fact that Marvel's going to win the race of first mega-on screen treatment is making WB executives blood boil.

Yeah, me too actually, regarding Beneath and Conquest. I am a huge sucker for Planet of the Apes, I just can't get enough of those movies (excluding the recent Tim Burton disaster), I even enjoy the TV show. Though I have never been able to get into the animated series.

That said, I do see them as pointless sequels, and really respect Heston regarding the whole sequel thing. I wish more actors would take that kind of pride in themselves. These days it feels like older past their prime actors are just desperately prostituting themselves out. I really hate to see that.

It certainly is different.  Batman killing people?  What the fuck?  But I find it pretty ironic that you feel TDK isn't a Batman movie, while enthusiasts such as myself feel that it captures every significant part of Batman into the ultimate Batman movie.  Plus it gives the best ending in all of comic book film history, really showing the true nature of Batman.
