Just saying that it is an old two time idea.
You may want to steer clear of movies in the other 2 polls so as to make it different.
If the poll board makes the same recommendations and the poll is too similar,, then why make it?
Maybe a minor edit to the idea is in order.
IMDb Poll Board Movies Made Prior to 1980 that Need a Sequel.
Now that would almost guarantee it would go live and would be interesting.
If you don't do it....I will.
Think! The first suggestion is for Serenity. It is in both polls.

Honorable Mention: The Birds
If they could do it RIGHT - I repeat, RIGHT - and be RESPECTFUL TO THE ORIGINAL ART, it would be cool to see a sequel that picks right up where Hitchcock's left off.  Perhaps by the new use of CGI to bring old stars back on screen?

I'm not suggesting a sequel for a Nolan film, because he hates sequel and remake (only exception: The Dark Knight Trilogy and Insomnia). It would be against his will.

1) None (Most of my favorite movies doesn't deserve a sequel)
2) If None is not an option, I would choose No Country for Old Men.

Is No country For old men is not an option because it is based on a book, I would choose Fargo.

It is gonna win Best Leading Actor 101% guaranteed, if it doesn't the Academy Award would be ruined. Maybe they snubbed comic book, but not this year, it is the most nominated movie of the year.

I believe Joaquin Phoenix is a lock. He's been the frontrunner since the movie was released, has won the other important awards, has attracted by far the most buzz, and he's "due" after several past nominations. The Academy has neglected movies like Joker in recent years, but the fact that they gave it 11 nominations shows how highly they think of it.

Anyway, thinking a movie will not get any Oscars does not equal thinking the movie should not win, or that it isn't good.

In this case, it is the same for me.

Since only 2 movies in history with 11 nominations didn't win any oscar, you have to be very pessimist,  to think that Joker isn't gonna win any Oscars.

Joaquin Phoenix will get an Oscar for sure. If you don't think so, it is ok, but you aren't realist.

Paok-Kilkis,

Thanks.

Sadly, no one in the original cast of Topper Returns (1941) is still alive.

FYC:
127 Hours (2010) as 128 Hours
The Last of the Mohicans (1992)as The Next to Last of the Mohicans
Whisper of the Heart (1995) as Yell of the Spleen
Strange Days (1995) as Normal Nights
Smilla's Sense of Snow (1997) as Smilla's Realization of Rain
Millions (2004) as Billions
Howl's Moving Castle (2004) Howl's Stationary Outhouse
Steamboy (2004) as Steamguy


Sorry. A joke that could go on for a very long time.


My serious nomination?
The Social Network (2010) This time? A more bitter rebuke of Mark Zuckerberg and the state of his social media empire.

I don't really need any movie to have a sequel if it was good and a closure. But just to add an option I'll suggest The Shadow the character has a lot of stories to adapt.

I believe sequels are often a bad idea, they are mostly cheap moves made by studios to make a quick buck. Most of the time movies work stand alone unless it's planned as is the case with trilogies. One movie I don't understand how it didn't get its own franchise was Dredd. Again it's a movie that works fine on its own but I don't understand how all these comic book and sci-fi movies that ranged from okay to mediocre were successful yet that movie flopped and didn't attract a sequel. The possibility of a sequel is extremely low but if it was made they could have done lots of things with the character.
