A good movie needs an arc, a conflict to resolve, friends become enemies, enemies become friends, etc. So we get that sequels have to shake up the status quo a bit.
But when you\'ve lived through a movie that you adored, watched the characters struggle through adversity and finally find happiness, it\'s kind of a massive bummer when the sequel sticks two fingers up to that.
1. Star Wars: Episode VI - Return of the Jedi - Star Wars: The Force Awakens
After quite a tricky and protracted scrap against the Dark Side, during which Luke has lost a hand and a dad but gained a sister and the Force, the allied troops finally manage to destroy the Death Star, Leia and Han have a snog, Luke says farewell to his now-redeemed dad and the ghosts of Yoda, Obi-Wan and Anakin all appear to him. Aww.
Now decades on, Han and Leia are divorced. Their grown-up son is troubled and hates his parents. Luke has gone totally AWOL after monumentally messing up his nephew. Oh, and the Dark Side has grown back even stronger and more powerful. Rendering all the rebels\' hard work pretty much useless.
? Everyone was SO HAPPY that Venkman and his team had vanquished the ghosts, demons and a ruddy huge Marshmallow Man, and the Ghostbusters were true heroes.
Not only are the team now facing a mean-spirited property damage lawsuit, but the entirety of New York seems to be claiming their exploits to be pure hokum and/or fake. Eh?? Did they just forget all of that crazy shit from a couple of years before? What dicks.
The whole of the first film revolves around snappily dressed songsters Jake and Elwood Blues avoiding the police while trying to raise $5,000 in property taxes to save an orphanage while avoiding the police. The race to the finish finale sees them paying the bill "on a mission from god" pursued by every conceivable brand of law enforcement before they\'re dragged off to the jailhouse as heroes. Hooray!
Elwood gets out of prison 18 years later to discover that his Brother Jake is gone (John Belushi had died) and the orphanage they\'d been locked up to protect has been demolished. That was definitely worth almost two decades in prison then.
movie was one of the most uplifting comedy finales ever, that gave hope for all similar dweebs looking for love and fun on holiday after school finishes. Best of all, Simon stopped being an idiot and fell in love with Lucy, a smart and thoughtful (and patient) girl.
In the sequel she\'s been totally transformed into a bunny boiler psycho, and Simon quickly dumps her. Now, we know that love doesn\'t always last and people aren\'t always who you might think they are, but come on, man, she was perfect!
introduced Dr Alan Grant as a children-hating, introvert Velociraptor expert, but by the end of the film, he\'s grown to warm to the kids he helped save the lives of, and kicked off a beautiful relationship with Dr Ellie Sattler.
In the third film we finally catch up with the pair, and they\'ve broken up. They\'re still pals, but she\'s now married to some douche attorney named Mark. Eugh, Mark. This is the only scene she\'s in, so why couldn\'t they have just been together at the start before he made the trip to the island? Stop killing love!
Whether they\'re leaving their Macauley Culkin-shaped 8-year-old alone in Chicago while they jet off to Paris (part 1) or losing him at airports so he ends up in New York while they sun it in Miami (part 2), parents Peter and Kate McCallister always seem to get their family back together by Christmas Day, all smiles and hugs, with little Kevin forgiving them entirely for their consistently dreadful parenting.
After the series left the McCallisters in happy stasis and moved on to an unrecognisable Scarlett Johansson for
director Rod Daniel decided to dust off the original family for TV movie
- except mum and dad are getting divorced, with Peter getting engaged to a rich, royal family-impressing new girlfriend, who Kevin spends half the film trying to get him to ditch. We\'re just glad the all-new personalities were equalled by an all new cast, as we just couldn\'t bear to see the ever-lovely John Heard and Catherine O\'Hara go through it all!
The heartwarming tale of a supermodel who can\'t turn left, who\'s rejected by his family then brainwashed into attempting to assassinate a president finishes with all the loose ends tied. The Pres is okay, Derek Zoolander\'s Dad has accepted him, he\'s made his peace with rival Hansel, had a kid with Matilda and set up "The Derek Zoolander Center for Kids Who Can\'t Read Good and Who Wanna Learn to Do Other Stuff Good Too". Bless.
Only the sequel turns immediately depressing in flashback as the school falls down, killing Derek\'s missus Matilda and injuring his mate Hansel. Derek subsequently loses custody of his son, quits modelling and becomes a recluse. Total bummer.
