Book of Shadows: Blair Witch 2 (2000) - Its multi-million dollar production values ruined the inventive charm of the original.
Star Wars: Episode 1 - The Phantom Menace (1999) - Not only the worst episode in the Star Wars series, but one of the worst sequels in film history.
Rocky V (1990) - This thing petered out shortly after Rocky III. That is until its reboot in 2006's Rocky Balboa.
Jaws 3-D (1983) - There's a reason Spielberg didn't want to be attached to this one. Even the 3-D effects aren't a good enough reason to recommend it.
Son of the Mask (2005) - Even Jim Carrey knew to stay away from this ill-conveived concept.
Matrix Revolutions (2003) - Successfully killed off a franchise.
Dumb and Dumberer: When Harry Met Lloyd (2003) - Fans of the original were extremely let down by this follow-up. A script that lived up to its name.
Basic Instinct 2 (2006) - How many came looking for a reprise of Sharon Stone's big moment?
Caddyshack 2 (1988) - Perfect example of why a great original should be left alone. Did they really think it would work without Bill Murray?
Bad Boys II (2003) - Will, Will, Will... you should know better. Did they think adding more explosions would make it better?
Jason X (2001) - Even the title says bad. We know we're hitting the bottom of the barrel when a villain gets a reboot.
Blues Brothers 2000 (1998) - The Blues Brothers are back with a new premise... they're getting the band back together to raise money for Sister Mary Stigmata's hospital... Oh, wait...
Speed 2: Cruise Control (1997) - As if the first one wasn't bad enough. At least we still had Sandra Bullock to look at.
Superman III (1983) - Love Richard Pryor, but when he joins a Superman cast, it's time to reboot the franchise.
The Next Karate Kid (1994) - When they stop putting roman numerals in the title, it's time to put the thing to bed. Certainly one of Hilary Swank's poorer choices.
Legally Blonde 2: Red, White & Blonde (2003) - Proof that lightning never strikes twice in the same place.
Battle for the Planet of the Apes (1973) - This final chapter in the incredible Apes saga truly marked the low-point of a great series.
Exorcist II: The Heretic (1977) - Despite its 3 nominations by the Academy of Science Fiction, this has to be one of the worst sequels in cinematic history.
The Sting II (1983) - When Jackie Gleason enters a franchise, it's over.
Batman & Robin (1997) - Even George Clooney's nipples couldn't make this one interesting.
