Sequels, Sequels, Sequels...

As a movie fan, I often find myself to be the type of person that if I've seen a movie that has 2 or more sequels attached to it, I generally feel obligated to see these sequels, or else I feel I'm left hanging, not knowing what is going to happen next. The same feeling goes towards remakes- I'll tell myself that I won't like them because I'm a fan of the original, yet I end up seeing the remake anyways.. just because. However, as of late- I've noticed that Hollywood is making 2013/2014 "The year of the sequels/remakes" and believe it or not, a few of them are looking quite interesting with some interesting aspects to them- while others are just complete trash, and should be tossed out as soon as physically possible.. So let's look at 3 of these sequels that have been green-lit, and figure out if it's going to be worth our time or not.

NUMBER 1; The Amazing Spider-Man 2 

I'm a huge Spider-Man fan, and although I enjoyed Tobey Maguire's role as everyone's favorite Web Slinger, I felt [as a fan of the comics] that Andrew Garfield did a much better job as Peter Parker, and I can't wait to see more of him. However, there has been a lot of talks over who's going to be our villain in the sequel. From Jamie Foxx as Electro; to Paul Giamatti as The Rhino. I just don't see it- guess I won't know until the film is released..
[am I the only one who thinks Paul Giamatti would be a really strange looking Rhino?]

NUMBER 2; Fast Six 

ugh.  I'm just gonna make this one brief and say; 'really? another one? fuck off..'  Seriously, Vin Diesel, back off the racing muscle cars already- some people, [me included..] are just tired of these films. I understand making the first 2; I'll even forgive the third one- which I never saw- but a SIXTH?! Apparently someone is compensating for something..

NUMBER 3; A Good Day To Die Hard; Die Hard 5 

Okay, this is another one which has to stop while they're ahead. I loved the first Die Hard, I liked how it had a ton of action, lots of Bruce Willis and Samuel L Jackson is just an added bonus. However, after awhile, I feel like they're trying to run this series dry; and going on to make a 5th one is proving my points.. Gotta give credit to Bruce Willis though, still looking as manly as ever in the picture above.
Some of the other ones that I didn't mention but are being released include [but aren't limited to]; The Hangover Part 3, Scary Movie 5, Paranormal Activity 5 and the one I'm most excited for; Iron Man 3. How do you feel about some of these? Does Hollywood need to relax? Or do these sound half decent to you; which one[s] are you most excited for ? Let me know on the fan page for this blog on Facebook; which you can find here or Twitter here . If you have a Tumblr, follow me here. I'm also on Myspace which you can find my profile page here . CHEERS !
