Friday Complaints

December 4, 2009 by admncc

First, I’d like to congratulate Tiger Woods on being our “Moron of the Week Award” winner.  Every time I start to feel bad about the media pummeling him, I realize that he might just deserve it.

However, John Marcotte was the runner-up for this week’s award.  John is the California man who, according to the Huffington Post, “is collecting signatures to get the “California Protection of Marriage Act” on the ballot.”  If this law is passed, divorce would be illegal in California.  You can read the full article here.

Now, let’s get on to today’s post.  I love complaining about movies.  And I’m pretty quick to judge a movie based on its trailer too.  But the one thing I’m very much in support of is sequels.  I don’t know why, but I’ve always been a sucker for a good sequel.  And I have a high level of excitement when hearing that the entire original cast is coming back, etc.  But according to my brother-in-law, I’m in the minority of movie lovers in this category.  And let’s not forget that my wife won’t forgive me for dragging her to see Basic Instinct 2 a few years ago…

Anyway, below are six sequels that are either filming, in production or have been announced.  Tell us if you’d see them, wouldn’t see them, can’t believe they’re making another one, etc.  Oh, and why not tell us your favorite movie sequel as well.

Ghostbusters 3 is planned for 2012.  Bill Murray, Dan Aykroyd, Harold Ramis and Ernie Hudson are confirmed to reprise their roles.

Indiana Jones 5 is in development for 2012.  Harrison Ford has indicated that as long as the script is good, he will make the film.

Lethal Weapon 5 is in pre-production for 2012.  Apparently Mel Gibson simply has to green light the script.

Scream 4 will be released in 2010.  This will be the first of three new Scream movies.  Neve Campbell, Courtney Cox and David Arquette are confirmed to reprise their roles.

Sex and the City 2 will be released in 2010.  Although there are too many to mention, all major cast members are confirmed to return.

Toy Story 3 will be released in 2010.  In addition to all the supporting character voices, Tom Hanks and Tim Allen will reprise their roles.

  1. The Constant Complainer says:

    My early thoughts – I’d see Ghostbusters 3. I hated Indiana Jones 4, but perhaps a new film could resurrect the franchise. I’m not sure another Lethal Weapon film could top the final fight scene in Lethal Weapon 4. I loved the Scream trilogy and would absolutely see another film. My wife and I thought the Sex and City Movie was very well done, so I hope they don’t ruin it with a sequel (but I’ll see it to find out). Toy Story 3’s storyline of no toy gets left behind sounds pretty good…

  2. Jacki says:

    The only one I want to see on that list is Toy Story 3.

  3. I’m with Jacki although I’m sure I will be dragged to Indiana Jones 5. The others surprise me that they are being made. Give us a break already!

  4. C. Princess says:

    I’m looking forward to see Ghostbusters 3 and Scream 4. I’m guessing the scream killer will somehow be connected to Neve Campbell’s character as it was in the past 3 Scream movies.

  5. NeoConDon says:

    I heard there may be a remake of Orwell’s 1984, and there are still rumors that Atlas Shrugged will finally hit the big screen!

  6. Leo Nevoli says:

    I did not know that Ghostbusters 3 was in the works. This would explain why Ernie Hudson is attending Comic Conventions, and they are making a point to say he will be in his Ghostbusters uniform.

    I would hope that an Indiana Jones 5 will be better then that trash they had in the last movie. I am so glad I won the DVD in a contest, because I would not buy it, or want to watch it again.

    I can do without a Lethal Weapon 5, I think the last one I watched was the second movie.

    Scream 4, I am guessing will be someone dressing up like the killer, and threatening Sidney, or going around as a copy cat killer in another town where Sidney, Gale, Dewey, Shaggy, and Scooby try to solve who is doing the killings.

    I guess now that I have kids, I may want to see Toy Story.

  7. Sugar says:

    I love when the sequels include the origional cast. Nothing sucks (like Hannibal) when they change up the main character.

    Ghostbusters 3- Looks good 🙂

    Indiana Jones 5- I’m skeptical, but I’ll go see it.

    Lethal Weapon 5- I’m skeptical, but I have to see it. I liked the first 4 so much, I even named my cats Riggs, Mertaugh and Leo.

    Scream 4- Looks good 🙂

    Sex and the City 2- I was a fan of the show, but another one, really?

    Toy Story 3- Maybe

  8. Candice says:

    I think Sex and the City should have quit while they were still ahead. The first movie wrapped everything up perfectly, dammit.

  9. MajorLeague09 says:

    I will see Toy Story 3, that looks like it will be a cute movie.

    The Scream movies will probably be okay…it all depends on the script.

    Lethal Weapon should leave well enough alone.

    Ghostbusters– I have to say that I will probably see it just to see what they came up with for a third story line.

    Sequels can be a good thing…as long as the writing is good.

  10. Tristan says:

    I’m not sure the return of the original cast really counts when they are 20+ years older! Harrison Ford is an old man now, not much of an Indiana Jones. If you want to see a good movie with old man Ford, Crossing Over is great, but he’s just an immigration agent, no whips or fistfights.

  11. Dan says:

    You are too generous on what you’ll watch CC. All of those sound terrible except Scream 4.

  12. Jen says:

    I think that once you get over 3 movies in a series, it’s all downhill from there. But maybe I’m wrong.

    The kid’s movies can get away with it, because most kids weren’t watching these movies the first time around. So, I’d take my boys to see Ghostbusters, Toy Story and Indiana Jones (the senior citizen version).

    Girls will use any excuse for a girl’s night out, and I’m no exception. So, I’d see Sex in the City, too.

  13. Extreme John says:

    Hey hey hey, sorry I haven’t been around as much over the last couple of weeks, it’s been hectic with getting the tanning season underway.

    I would have to say that in regards to Tiger Woods I still think it’s his own business, the news coverage over it and the people that want apologies from him are ridiculous to me. I don’t know the guy, why the hell would he ever apologize to me or owe me one.

    On the the sequels I would def see another Lethal Weapon and Toy Story, might even see another Scream just for the silly chuckle.

  14. While I’m probably going to see a lot of the above mentioned sequels I really feel like Hollywood needs to get some new movie ideas out there. They keep on recycling the same crap over and over. There are so many more sequels and remakes that you didn’t mention above. Makes you wonder where originality and creativity have gone?

    Candice- SATC2 isn’t so much about wrapping up the series more like continuing it. If you’ve read anything about the new movie it will honestly blow your mind. It’s like WTF? Why would you do that? All major characters do come back and the script sounds like it can be way interesting! Oh la la!

    And I realized the other day that I can’t watch any movie with Danny Glover in it. When LW4 came out I went to the movies and ended up in the FRONT ROW. The entire theater was PACKED!! About two weeks ago I went to see 2012 and ended up in the SECOND ROW! It’s not like it was the first day or weekend of the movie…the movie had been out for such a long time (at least 3 weeks….) I was like Danny Glover is horrible luck!

  15. TallElf says:

    Tiger must remember.. Hole in one.. Gets Sportcenter headlines. Two holes in one gets national attention, along with many punchlines getting thrown his way.

    As for the Brilliant man making divorce illegal, I bet that he is also somehow backing legalizing marijuana.

    To tie together the sequel rants here, I would have to say that I would be the glutton for punishment for the Lethal weapon. They have to keep up with the Die Hard’s or be ahead for them to let sleeping dogs lie. I will probably be in line for Ghostbusters, as I even watched the cartoon version for many years. Toystory3 should be on the top of the list, as Pixar has only gone “UP” since they got rolling.

    Jenny Georgio-who, I would say that the creativity has gone right out the window with a lot of the movies, and part of that has to do with the fact that people can not type out whole words, nor full complete thoughts due to too much texting while driving, and studying the lives of our celebrities who I don’t care that much about, rather than applying themselves to original thought.

  16. The Constant Complainer says:

    Keep in mind that no matter what I say on here or who I make fun of, I have a great sense of humor. And I appreciate it when others do as well. Which made the below-message all the more enjoyable…

    John Marcotte, who I mentioned above sent me this e-mail:

    “I’m a much bigger moron than Tiger Woods.”

    John, I appreciate you visiting the site and taking the time to e-mail me.

  17. Count me in for Ghostbusters 3 and Scream 4, the rest seem questionable (actually, they all seem questionable).

  18. TallElf says:

    What questions do you have…. If they are dumb enough to market them… they will hit the big screen. Someone will pay. They all win, and we the consumer help spike the economy one dumb movie at a time!

  19. Tristan says:

    TallElf, you’re right on with your idea about general dumbness. It shouldn’t be a surprise to anyone that movies are lame and empty because they are a reflection of our society. Same goes for politicians. We have (and will get) exactly what we deserve across the board. Garbage in, garbage out.

  20. tera says:

    Yea, Ghostbusters! The one I’m waiting for however, is the last Mad Max movie that was supposed to be made.

    I agree Tiger and Marcotte are morons, but goodness! there are so many to choose from! 😉

  21. Ugg. I don’t wish to see any of those, but I am excited to see the Chipmunk Squeakuel 🙂

  22. Sandi says:

    Ghostbusters 3 and Toystory 3. I will see those….but probably none of the others. Maybe Scream 4 if it’s on TV sometime. Or Netflix it.
