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.

People said the same when 'The Dark Knight' came out.

I'm not asking for just any sh*tty sequel like the Marvel/Disney or any other money-making films.

I'm talking about a pure quality sequel.

Sequels can be a masterpiece too. The best example is 'The Godfather - Part 2'.

===

Just because someone can't think of a sequel or don't want it, doesn't mean the film doesn't "deserve" a sequel.

The poll author is asking for movies that deserve a sequel. I want it.

I want to see what happens next. Does Arthur escape from that prison?

I know you love Joker, so do I. But haven't you thought about what could happen next?

 1)Todd Philips is not Christopher Nolan,
Christopher Nolan never made a film below 7.0 in his career (he is a legend)

2) It is strongly implied that Arthur escaped the prison, otherwise, why would they show us a scene with him walking in the corridor.

3) If you make a sequel, you can't talk about his psychology again so you would probably have to talk about his crimes, which would make it more of an action movie than a thriller.

4)The Godfather- Part 2 was based on a novel, which usually makes the movie more coherent.


Conclusion: Joker deserves a sequel, but there are 0 odds that the sequel is gonna be good, if the sequel is not good it will ruin the first movie.

It's virtually guaranteed a sequel. It made over a $1Billion. Wouldn't this poll be better served if based on movies that aren't getting an immediate studio approved sequel?

"2) It is strongly implied that Arthur escaped the prison, otherwise, why would they show us a scene with him walking in the corridor.:"
Walking in a corridor in a prison (which he wasn't in The Joker) as well as a mental institution/hospital (where his character was in where we last met)? Isn't the same as escaping the highly secured building. That is an insane leap of judgment on what might be happening.

"3) If you make a sequel, you can't talk about his psychology again so you would probably have to talk about his crimes, which would make it more of an action movie than a thriller."
Says who? For all we know? The sequel takes place in the hospital as 100% of the setting. Ever hear of One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest (1975)?

The  mean, I think that for you guys, I have to reexplain everything each time, I knew that it wasn't a prison (do you know how many comic with Arkham Asylum (in the movie it is named "Arkham State Hospital"))

Do you know anything about cinema, what is the freaking goal of showing us Joker walking in the corridor, if he doesn't eventually escape that freaking asylum? You are playing on the words to bother me right now. 


OMG, Do you really think that we can compare Arthur Fleck to R.P. McMurphy?
This is a completely different thing. IT IS IMPOSSIBLE TO MAKE A JOKER MOVIE 100% in prison, there is nothing to say about it.

I mean if Joker wanted to escape Arkham asylum, he would just kill everyone.

C-pile.
Stephen and B-BOSS AND now I believe that 'Joker' needs a sequel.
Your opinions are your own opinions.
But arguing against something on this level is not in the spirit of poll making.
Your defense I might add is indefensible.
You reexplaining to "Do I have to" to "you guys" thing was unnecessary.
Also your fixation with ALL things Joker is wearing THIN.
Allow others to make suggestions.
If you don't agree. Don't argue. Let people have their opinions, regardless of whether you agree or not.
It's time you allow US to be free to voice an opinion without your over the top arguments.
Thanks

Ed Jones (XLIX)? You need to work on your reading skills. I did not write that Joker shouldn't get a sequel. Please direct quote me (from any source on the internet that claims that). I wrote that the Joker shouldn't be placed here because we already KNOW that it's getting a sequel. That makes its nomination here kind of pointless.

BTW: I rated it an 8/10. Learn to NOT read between the lines. Because you and cinephiles do it so badly.


And I'm actually down to see a sequel and where the filmmakers go with it.

1) I wrote 1 line "Nah no sequel for Joker, don't ruin this masterpiece!!!!"
3) BONAFIDE BOSS told me why he wants a sequel

4) I responded to BONAFIDE BOSS and explained why I think that Joker doesn't need a sequel.

5) Out of nowhere, you responded to me quite rudely:

"That is an insane leap of judgment on what might be happening."

 "Says who? For all we know? The sequel takes place in the hospital as 100% of the setting. Ever hear of One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest (1975)?"

6) I responded without thinking too much (I was angry):

"Do you know anything about cinema,"  (I was a bit rude)

7) Ed Jones responded: (I think the first 3 and the last 3 three sentences were good and objective)


8) Stephen Atwood responded (probably to put oil on the fire)


 "Ed Jones (XLIX)? You need to work on your reading skills." (it was in my opinion very unnecessary and mean)
and
" Learn to NOT read between the lines. Because you and cinephiles do it so badly. " (which was even ruder)

To conclude:

1) there is no official announcement yet for Joker 2 as I pointed out there: https://getsatisfaction.com/imdb/topics/false-information-joker-2-announced

2) I have heard of One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest, and you could have known it if you looked at my ratings (which are public)

3) You say that you liked joker and that you rated it 8/10, but in other topics, you told that it is gonna win 0 Oscars, and that it is the most overrated movie of the year (make your choice).

4) "cinephile" doesn't take an "s".

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.

Thanks.

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

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.
