5 Sequels they NEVER should have made

The Matrix Reloaded

In The Matirx Reloaded, Neo and the rebel leaders estimate that they have 72 hours until 250,000 probes discover Zion and destroy it and its inhabitants. During this, Neo must decide how he can save Trinity from a dark fate in his dreams.

Why shouldn't they have made The Matrix Reloaded? Because The Matrix was so amazing. It's hard to come back with something as good adn as revolutionary as The Matrix. And they really really dropped the ball on this one...I think it's still falling.

In Legally Blonde 2: Red, White, and Blonde, Elle Woods heads to Washington D.C. to join the staff of a congresswoman in order to pass a bill to ban animal testing.

Why should they not have made Legally Blonde 2? I would have been ok with a sequel to the first movie. But, this movie was just awful. The story line stunk; the acting was mediocre, and not much was enjoyable about it at all really. I was disappointed. I actually liked the first one.

The Land Before Time

We all loved the first Land Before Time. But I don't think anyone liked it enough for them to make 12 more of them. That's right, there are at least 13 Land Before Time movies made. When oh when will they stop? All Land Before Time sequels 2-100 are on my worst-list.

The Next Karate Kid

Mr. Miyagi is back and he takes a new pupil under his wing: a troubled teenage girl. Why shouldn't they have made The Next Karate Kid? Because, how many times can you make the same movie and actually have people continue to enjoy it?

Cinderella 2

Here Cinderella 2 is standing in for all Disney movie sequels. There is a reason, Walt's "descendents", why the fairy tales ended where they did. And it might be a hint if the original voices won't (or in some cases, can't) return, you might want to re-think your movie idea.
