Top 5 Terrible Movies Sequels
Source: TheFW We can agree that film just like any other art form is a subjective medium. There has never been a film that all viewers unanimously agree on. Watching the first installment of a great movie with an epic ending can be an awesome viewer experience, especially when movies has an amazing climax for sequel. Take great movies franchises like the Godfather, Lord of the Rings and even Toy Story, which actually deepen the plot initially presented by the first movie. But let’s face it, we rarely witness many great sequels. Nowadays, Directors try way too hard to give the audiences more of what they enjoyed from the first installment. The movie sequel can often be incredibly unoriginal, technically incompetent, and its failures are hard to ignore. Some of these movies go on to become, unintentionally, so-bad-they’re good, where others remain downright unwatchable. Source: Pixabay
And so it begins...
Our list of top 5 bad movie franchises that highlight the intolerable yawns that failed to deliver on even their most basic ambitions – these are the unfunny comedies, the not-very-scary horror movies, the superficial dramas, and the snooze-inducing action flicks.

But then, the series had took a turn for the worst with multiple directors, continuous change in style and tone, this movie saga quickly become soul-crushing disappointment.

Little did we know, disappointment soon awaited Transformers fans. Two years later with multiple explosions, robot battles, gratuitous T&A shots and human characters quickly became insufferable, the Transformers Saga certainly did not live up to the hype of the first installment!

Seriously who would have thought a film about an isolated shark attack would necessarily lend to several sequels. The first movie made an absurd amount of money at the box office, so maybe one sequel makes sense. But with one to many installments of the Jaws franchise took one bizarre turn after another, as each consecutive shark attack became more implausible than the one before it.

This movie provided audiences around the world with genuine scares and one of the greatest horror villain of all time. But after 11 sequels to the original, the franchise slowly turned from horror to hokey as the series lost its edge while reverting to campy humor.
Source: Wallpapercave Franchise installments: Alien (1979), Aliens (1986), Alien 3 (1992), Alien Resurrection (1997), Alien vs. Predator (2004), Alien vs. Predator: Requiem (2007) In 1979, film direction Ridley Scott’s Alien reinvented the way we view both sci-fi and horror. In 1986, James Cameron’s Aliens broke the mold of the action genre, when he gave us one of the most exciting movies to ever hit the big screen. But thereafter it slowly became unoriginal and technically incompetent. The rest of the Alien films is perfect example of movie sagas gone bad, very bad! Let's face it, the rest of the installments failed to capture the horror, high stakes and scope of the first two films. From worst to best, here's our Top 5 casino movies ever made!
