A large majority of Hollywood blockbusters consist of reboots, remakes and sequels. There have been some excellent sequels that have become classics and sometimes are even considered better than the original. However, this is a rare occurrence and audiences often get tired of the same tired formulas that are repeated in every instalment. Which most recent entry of a franchise or could be a potential franchise do you believe should just be left alone even though they are most likely or have already announced a sequel/sequels anyway?

List- https://www.imdb.com/list/ls093899368/

The poll is actually about what franchise you don't want another sequel for. Maybe there's a way I could make that more obvious in the title or description?

I like 'Enough! No More!', that drives the point of the poll more effectively.

Thanks for the title request BB I'll give you credit for it in the description!

No sequel for Joker pls.

Making a sequel for Joker is the equivalent of making a remake of The Godfather.

I doubt it will ever happen but I'll include it anyway. Nick Cave's script about Maximus in the afterlife may have been a great comedy, we will never know!

Thanks for the suggestion!

Most of them.  Hard to pick just one.  I'm looking forward to Top Gun 2, Quiet Place 2, and any more Toy Story would be welcome, but all the others I'd like to say "Bye-bye" to.  :/

I actually wanted to suggest The Dark Knight Rises (a Batman movie), but since there's already an upcoming Batman movie.

Can you add that? Because I don't want any more Batman movies, there are so many other great characters in the DC universe, and here they are, still making Batman and Superman movies.

I'm a DC fan, but this is what I like about Marvel, they always look forward to bring new characters to screen.

I might add Justice League since that was the last movie that featured Batman and Superman. Is that alright? Or would you prefer the last stand alone Batman movie that was The Dark Knight Rises?

No, not the Justice League movie, because I want the Zack Snyder trilogy.

You can add the upcoming 2021 Batman movie. But if an admin doesn't allow to add unreleased films, you can replace it with The Dark Knight Rises.

You could also add Frozen 2, Twilight, and maybe even Hunger Games.
I am puzzled as to why The Mummy is on there.  The Dark Universe has been cancelled, to my knowledge.

I would like to suggest the Fast and Furious franchise had 2 movies in 1 year and is the best example of an unnecessary overexploitation to a dead and empty saga.

I can't believe I missed that one! Anyway I kind of enjoy the Fast and Furious movies but not for their story, they are so over the top I wonder what stupid car stunt or CG stunts they will think up in the next instalment. The chain cars in Hobbs and Shaw was comedy gold!

Ooff very harsh but I hear you. I would rather Hollywood stop with the franchises and go back to some original ideas. Thankfully we still have independent studios and sometimes even streaming services putting out new interesting movies.

Agree with Rob.

I couldn't vote - it's an AT LEAST 8 way tie for me.

Okay, lets break this down:

1. Movies/Franchises I don't care for anyway


Toy Story; Jumanji; Godzilla; Ghostbusters; John Wick; Hellboy; Leatherface; A Quiet Place; Sharknado; Frozen (10/30)

I've watched 1, maybe 2 of the movies in these franchises. They were either average or terrible. In many cases (John Wick, Sharknado, Frozen) I have not watched a single movie & have no interest in doing so. I just don't feel strongly enough about these films to vote.. make 1 more, make 10 more, I'm not watching them, I don't care, I'm not invested.

2. Good Stuff

Avengers/MCU; Joker; X-Men; Fantastic Four; The Dark Knight/Batman ; Halloween; Men In Black; Terminator (8/30)

Still plenty of potential here. ((Fantastic Four - 2015 was horrific, but should not be used as a reason to exclude future, better adaptations.))

So this group still has potential, and I won't vote to kill them just yet.

3. Anathema

The Mummy; Matrix, Pirates of the Caribbean, Star Wars, The Grudge (5/30)

GOOD MOVIES THAT WENT BAD... Anywhere between 1 and 5 of the earlier movies in these franchises were superb. The following films in these franchises were AWFUL and an insult to the original movie(s).

All strong contenders for my vote -- stay tuned.

4. Why are they on this list????

Avatar; Top Gun; Bad Boys; Gladiator (4/30)

Only 2 or 3 movies in the franchise to date, and you want to kill them? I couldn't even stand the original Avatar, but, objectively, it does not belong on this list.

5. Why are they on this list???? [Part 2]

Twilight; Hunger Games (2/30)

These franchises concluded ages ago. I have not yet heard that anyone is going to reboot them. And hell, I liked them, so if they do, I might watch them. Scratch.


CLEARLY, WE NEED TO KILL A FRANCHISE FROM GROUP 3.

THE TWO THAT WERE THE MOST SUPERLATIVE, AND ARE MOST GREATLY INSULTED BY THE VILE SEQUELS, AND THE MATRIX AND STAR WARS FILMS.

SO IN THE GREATER SCHEME OF THINGS, IM GOING TO GO WITH STAR WARS.

PLEASE, NO MORE DESECRATION OF THIS CLASSIC FOR $$$.

Now I''m going to vote.

I've got no time for these comic books they try and make into epic sagas. I don't need to watch 8 movies to learn the entire back stories of every character in the plot. Why on earth do they have to drag these things out to over 3 hours? If you can't tell the story of a 30 page comic book in 2 hours, you're just reading way too much into it. There's not enough interest in the storyline to warrant the length of the films. So they stretch them out with 30 minutes of slow motion and pointless visual effects to fill up the runtime to make you think you've got more bang for your buck. It's just boring.
Look at Star Wars, imagine if they did the entire story of World War 2 in one franchise? No-one could sit through that, and that actually happened over the course of 6 years. Not 9 generations, and probably more to come.
I suggest a face-off poll on what's the ideal runtime for a movie. 90 minutes, 120 minutes, 150 minutes, 180 minutes & 180+. I want to be entertained for a couple of hours. A trip to the cinema shouldn't be considered as a day out. I think filmmaking hit it's peak in the 90's to early 00's, a lot of those were great stories, but didn't eat up the best part of the day sat in an uncomfortable seat, eating consuming priced snacks.

How about the 40s and 50s? A lot of those were great stories.
Name me a 'Casablanca' of the 00s!

I know what you're saying, but you're talking about 70-80 years ago. It's like comparing a digitally remastered mp3 vs an amateur recording of a small chamber orchestra on a phonograph or a wax tube. Could you imagine what Casablanca would even look like today? Rick and Ilsa aren't really relevant anymore. They were a romantic fantasy back then. These days it would be Ryan Reynolds pining over Daisy Riddley[Age differences respective]. It would be plain inappropriate these days, unless of course you were making the story of Prince Andrew/Jeffrey Eppstein story. Plus, that kind of club just doesn't exist anymore. I bet they were few and far between back then too. What, would they do, a Balinese bar full of drunken soldiers caught between the Gulf war & the hunt for Osama Bin Laden? It doesn't really transpire anymore.

I get your point, and I mostly agree. But it can also be argued that what you're talking about is the precise reason why The Shawshank Redemption was such a massive, unexpected hit among movie lovers: It featured a simple friendship between two men. No love, no sex, no money or any other motives involved, something that's in one word: old-fashioned.

Same could be said for the love story between Rocky and Adrian, which for me is the most heartfelt love in movies. It was modern, but it felt timeless. There was no drama queenry from Adrian, no macho crap from Rocky, no horny cougar neighbor trying to get a piece of Rocky, none of the crap that's shoved down our throats in movies and TV, as if to say "this is how everyone else lives, this is how it's supposed to be."

You don't need to replicate every detail of the setting, that would be indeed inappropriate. But a skilled movie maker can make decent movies about anything that's considered old-fashioned today. Simplistic but not naive. Based on love, not sex. I like Tarantino and Marvel movies as much as the next guy, but it's really a much-needed fresh air when those kinds of movies emerge once in a while: Rocky, A Perfect World, Million Dollar Baby.

Ardan I totally agree, that's why I enjoyed last year's best picture winner 'Green Book'. It's a simple road movie about the growing friendship of these two men.

Rob Wester that sounds like a good idea for a poll, you should make it!

I'd like to add that in my opinion film making hit its peak Starting in 1967 and ending in 1977.
Think of the films made in that 10 year stretch!

I believe the 70s was the end of the classic era of films and the beginning of modern cinema. A new wave of film directors came in, Martin Scorcese, Francis Ford Coppola, Steven Spielberg, George Lucas, etc. who reshaped what could be achieved in cinema with more mature stories, realistic depictions of society and inventing the blockbuster with surprise hits like Jaws and Star Wars.
