Yeah, my tablet was giving me all sorts of poo trying to paste youtube links.


The first link is 19 seconds long, and is dean Winchester killing a vampire with a big knife. He says "eat it twilight".

The second is a mash up that mixes the douchebag from twilight being creepy, and buffy the vampire slayer being, well...

When he finally gets around to saying he wants to kill her, she turns it around and kills the poo out of him.

 There was actually a fairly big copyright snafu over the video where lions gate tried to jack the monetization of the video, and eventually lost.
just one little time change so a draft board in 1968 turns down the bribe to accept "bone spurs" and we are home-free.

I really have to add The Games maker to this list.  Apart from the story being convoluted and ridiculous, it really had no purpose or point. I kept thinking that perhaps it was a good book that's narrative got lost in translation, but alas, there appears to be no book or even a Wikipedia page that might shed a little more light on it.

99% of the people would probably disagree with me but IMO The Revenant (Leonardo DiCaprio) is just a remake of Man in the Wilderness with Richard Harris as lead. Already been done.

Specifically, I meant this thread for movies that flat out shouldn't be made, because they took up time, money, and space from actual decent movies, or those weird mirror movies, like how armageddon and deep impact came out, or the two white house assault movies, or those shitty, shitty remakes.

The other day at goodwill I saw a metal dvd case, I picked it up, it said REARDEN STEEL.

The golly is rearden steel you ask? That shitty ayn rand "trilogy" that got one and a half movies.

Souless movies for rich naffs to masturbate to.

Thanks.  I'd never heard of it.  I imagine Paul Ryan and his besties having popcorn and beer over it.

Godfather 2
I didnt realise that number 2/3 were not written by Puzo, and the ending of number 1 in the book was a typical Hollywood happy ending.

Godfather Part 2 was a sequel and a prequel to The Godfather, so much of Puzo's story spans across the film. I would say that the Godfather part 2 is an exception to the "horrible franchise sequels", it was very well accepted in it's day as a great movie, but I suppose not everyone would enjoy it. Part 3 was indeed a poor film IMHO.

I quite liked "Speed."  I think it had a terrible sequel, but the first one was pretty exciting.

I also liked The Matrix, the sequels were pretty much as expected.  :(
