  1. I was surprised that there was no animated movies on the list Secret of NHIM 2 and some of the disney sequels come to mind. Though I do recall you saying that it had to be shown in theaters and I’m pretty sure most of them went straight to dvd.

  2. I’d personally take The Phantom Menace off the list and replace it with Attack of the Clones.

  3. I simply survived Troll 2 just by watching the original few days later and then I realized…it wasn’t even part of Charles Band’s work. And I was 14 at the time.

  4. “Come to Sea World where . . . You’ll DIE!”

  5. What about “Jaws 4”, “Secret of Nimh 2”, “Mulan 2”, and “Beauty and the Beast 3”?

  6. “Kinda fun”, eh? That’s not what you said about Transformers in your first video ever… 😛

  7. Can you talk about the MTV series Good Vibes and Daria?

    On a side note, I mention this all before, why don’t you review a classic horror like this one I’ve finally found after all these years after just seeing a few scenes of it and never knowing how it ended. It’s called Sorority Babes in the Slimeball Bowl-O-Rama. You might like it. Maybe.

    Also what do think of these TV series shows called:
    John Doe
    Forever Knight
    The Misfits (British Show)
    Misfits of Science (Movie and series)
    and The Zeta Project
    (I think all of these shows are like Sonic the Hedgehog a.k.k Sonic Sat a.m. They all have incomplete ending.)

    I’d really like to hear what you think about the FX series Archer and Chozen.

    And I never found out if you were going talk more about the Disney Afternoon shows Gummi Bears, Chip N Dale’s Rescue Rangers, Talespin(even the hour uncut movie special I found about it) and Darkwing Duck. Also you never answer my question, If you hate thye Goof Troop song “Gotta Be Gettin’ Goofy” then does that mean you hate The Darkwing Duck Rap?

  8. Actualy the stages of Grief are Denial, Anger, Bargain, Depression and Acceptance. And its not just grief over death, but any significantly big loss.

  9. GreenGoblinsOckVenom86

    I actually enjoyed Terminator Genisys. Anyway, I agree with your list though I have never seen or heard of Trolls 2.

  10. Is the crying guy flipping off the audience?

  11. 11. Yup GF3 was a pile of poop but i still loved that end scene where Sofia gets shot lol and you see a broken Michael die on his own in Italy that was such a sad scene but yeah like i said GF3 was shite
    10. BW2 i have never seen nor do i ever want to see. Also i never seen the first one and i hate found footage movies so i would’ve hated it even if it was good.
    9. Transformers franchise is something i have never seen or would EVER wish to see and i would rather give my money to anyone other than Michael Bay!
    8. And to think i saw Deadpool actually take it up the ass in his own movie but boy did he get it worser in this pile of monkey semen!
    7. Blues Brothers 2000 is a atrocious cash grab playing on the Blues Brothers nostalgia and i fucking hated it!
    6. A laughably bad movie that i found hilarious but you need to be in the right mood to laugh at it.
    5. Superman 4 was another laughably bad film that i actually can laugh at.
    4. I dont wanna beat that dead horse cause there is nothing left to beat but bone dust
    3. Worst superhero movie ever! Nuff said!
    2. Never seen and never ever wanted to see even though i fucking loved Jim Carreys The Mask.
    1. This film shouldnt even be on the list. Hell i know good movies that aint as great as this movie!

  12. I like this list, but I fail to agree with a lot of the movies in here…
    I mean, shouldn’t Rocky V be there instead of Godfather 3?
    Or Alien: Resurrection… Or Dumb and Dumber (either of the sequels, but I have to say that 2014 Dumb and Dumber To has made me unable to watch Jim Carrey movies…).

  13. Sorry for the double post.

    The 60 Batman was the only was of keeping the character alive!

    At the time, not a lot of people were reading Batman comics.

    It’s a risk that could have flopped, so easily and yet it succeeded so well.
    It made catwoman and the riddler into household names and gave us amazing villains like Mr Freeze.

    Show some respect!

  14. Be nice to Sophia Coopola. She was doing that as a favor to her father after Winona Ryder couldn’t do it.

  15. Angryatthecritic666

    I’m ashamed to admit but…I liked transformers 4

  16. You’re forgetting Robocop 3?

  17. Just so you wonder I loved Superman 3 and 4. And I want to see a sequel to Terminator Genisys. I love that movie. Also I happen to like Clerks II. I’m hoping they have a Clerks 3. I kind liked Die Hard 5. Tho I really love Die Hard 3 – Die Hard With A Vengeance[1995]. My Favorite. And to be fair, Trolls 2 isn’t a sequel. It’s some B-movie from I don’t know where that they renamed Trolls 2. I mean it originally had a foreign name. Just so you wonder.

  18. Regarding The Godfather Part III, I’m pretty sure that the Pope / Vatican did have actual to the mob (or at the very least organized crime, but please correct me if I am wrong). I don’t see the plot being too farfetched

  19. Absolute worst sequel really should have been Return to Oz. A sequel that was so bad, that even Disney did everything in there power to pretend it never existed. And yes, it did have a theatrical release.

    • No that movie shouldn’t be on the worst list, That movie should be on the most fucking scariest list!

      I swear i saw Robocop and Terminator as a kid but Return to Oz was the only film back in the 80s i was so terrified that my parents had to switch the movie off!

      I honestly had nightmares that night i thought that headless woman was chasing me.

    • Return to Oz wasn’t an official sequel to the MGM movie. It was produced by a different studio.

    • Um… have you seen Dorothy’s Return?

    • thatchickwithlonghair

      Doug LOVES Return to Oz. It’s in one of his Top 11 lists and I agree; it is way more interesting than the Wizard of Oz (which I am really sick of lol)

  20. Doug, I’m not questioning why X-Men 3 wasn’t up there. I’m questioning why X-Men Apocalypse wasn’t up there.Yeah, you say they ruined Deadpool, but they wasted Jubilee, Storm, Psylocke and Apocalypse, completely screwed up all sense of continuity, and the one good moment it had was just doing a repeat of what they’d done in the previous movie.

  21. Episode one should not be on the list. It is a prequil

  22. “The sequel to one of the best car chase comedies of all time…”

    ….as opposed to all those other car chase comedies? Like, if you stretch the definition of chase reeeeeeally far, you’ve got Rat Race, Its a Mad Mad Mad Mad World, and…what else, exactly?

  23. Phantom Menace has no place on this list, it’s really not bad enough unless you exaggerate all the bad parts, and it isn’t a sequel.

  24. I strongly think Alien Resurrection was a big let down. Should have been on this list easily. Why have such great actors like Winona Ryder and Ron Perlman if you’re gonna make them do such hammy stuff in one of the greatest Sci-Fi series. Even the Xenomorph itself is upstaged by Brad Dourif’s performance. Although to be fair, Dourif is possibly the most terrifying actor in Hollywood…

  25. So the only reason you can come up with to hate Batman And Robin after all this time is just “it has 3 of the same actors reprising their roles” and “I don’t think Batman should be mocked”? Insightful.

  26. So you’re starting off by saying that its limited solely to sequels to movies that were good and had potential…then end it with a movie that literally no-one has seen or cared about except because of its sequel?

    Seriously, what is there to defend in the original Troll? It wasn’t imaginative, good looking, well acted, or anything.

  27. So, I’m sure I’m not the first to bring this up, but does “Troll 2” technically count as a sequel? It wasn’t even written as a sequel to Troll and was only named that to piggyback off another film to give it some semblance of recognition.

    As for sequels I’d put on this list:
    Police Academy 5: I haven’t seen Mission to Moscow (nor do I intend to), but 5 is my vote for the worst of the series.

    The Parent Trap 2: Couldn’t get through it.

  28. I knew “Son of the Mask” would be on here. And I KNEW it would be placed so high on the list! Couldn’t agree more with what you said about it.

  29. Just a small nitpick: the Blob in Wolverine: Origins was totally a mutant, hence why he was brought along on all the special ops mutant missions. True, they implied that his giant blob-ness was due to overeating and not related to his mutation, but they did show his actual mutation of being able to stop almost any moving object, or whatever. Like when he shoved his fist into the cannon end to plug it in the beginning.

  30. 80% of horror sequels.
