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/

You don't need to put "Poll Suggestion" there. It's only for GetSatisfaction.

No sequel for Joker pls.

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

I agree, after I saw it and heard people asking for a sequel I thought, are you joking?

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!

This reminded me of the spoof in Al Yankovic's UHF:

GANDHI 2.

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.

So hard to pick just 1. Maybe you need an "All of the Above" button on that one

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.
