Whether 'tis nobler to suffer the sequel and The slings and arrows of an outrageous suggestion, Or to be a champion for a noble idea, and by not opposing them? Which of these movies would you most like to see as a sequel?

Great idea!  Actually, they are making Twins 2, Triplets, with Eddie Murphy, lol!
Suggestion: Groundhog Day 2.  But what could the subtitle be?

Since Murray has aged considerably since G.D. he would be perfect for the remake.
And with all the G-Day talk, I have added it.

As long as the storytellers, script doctors, storyboard artists, producers, film directors, cinematographers and film editors of/for a given original movie all feel like "there is more where that came from", I'm probably game for a sequel to that movie. I don't want their motives to have much if anything to do with studio demands unless the filmmakers happen to own the studio.

Dan Dassow is it possible that we start over again?
Can this be made live again as a new poll? Finding the old one does not have to happen.
That would be a nice thing if you could do that.
Thanks.
Cheers.

I think it would be cool if it was time-lined to 1985-90.
What do you think?
This Guy maybe?

Ed: What Jeorj is saying is what I meant; I should've clarified that.  I wasn't talking about performance, just how much he didn't look like Michael Biehn.

So, here it is - this is just the way I imagine it.  :)

'It's been about 25 years since Danny Madigan traveled through the screen.  Widowed, he now owns Nick's old theater, which is failing.  His two teenage children think he is pulling their leg when he tells them of the magic ticket.  But with a new Jack Slater reboot hitting the screen (still starring Schwarzenegger), Danny grabs the magic stub and takes his children on an adventure in the movie!  Meanwhile in the real world, a strange young woman uses the long-lost other half of the ticket to rally villains and monsters from old and recent film to attack New York - and only the Madigans and an aging Jack can save the city!  
There is also plenty of soundtrack from AC/DC, and you bet Slater can still say, "Big Mistake!"'

Thanks.

Look how BIG your is!
Look how small mine is!

Jack's back! L.A.H. II. Twice the villains. Twice as many get offed! Twice the car chases. Twice the crashes. They blow up twice as much stuff. Twice as many cliched lines. 2 Daughters. Two Movie Cinema Kids. Two Slater's? Twins! Danny DeVito co-stars!

It's 3 times TOO BIG.

If first you don't succeed............

Okay, I'v tried to make it tinier.  :)

'In present day, theater-owner Danny and his cynical children travel into the new Jack Slater revival thanks to the magic ticket!  But when a dangerous young woman in the real world gets a hold of the other magic stub and uses it to bring countless film villains/monsters to life, only the Madigans and an aging Jack can save the world!'

very interesting and eloquent, I have dreamed about many of the scenarios that he proposes but in particular I would have always wanted to see a sequel to Kathryn Bigelow's Point Break, about everything after seeing that absurd remake

A sequel to Inception would also be great and I would take the boldness to write a brief irrelevant synopsis;
20 or 30 years later Ariadne looks for Cobb to help her in a mission, for this they will have to return to the business and they will face a much more dangerous threat that would put their lives at risk, only for Cobb to discover that it is a betrayal and now they are inside their dreams extracting their ideas, they will go from being the extractor to being the extracted one

I might appreciate a television mini-series set in the same universe as Inception, if there is significant world-building, expanding upon what kinds of things a dream maker might be able to do. Thus far, extraction of memories and inception of ideas have been addressed, but what about deletion (suppression) of memories?

I love the intro. and title. : ) Good, funny poll, too.

May I suggest a few edits?

#1: that graduates College at 15 with a Masters in Theology and Astronomy.

#17: Is "recreations" a title or part of a title? Is it referring to "Parks & Recreation?" Perhaps clarifying it would help voters. 

Thanks, Ed.

Replaced recreation rightly and respectfully to re-creation. Rokay Ruby? Scooby snacks for my repentance?
