Good call on First Blood as well. There are eight Rocky and Rambo sequels in total and all of them completely miss the point of the originals.

Although that in itself in not necessarily a reason to dislike them, imo.

There is, it's called "The Return of Josey Welles". Clint didn't have anything to do with it though.

Here's it IMDB :-

It depends what you want from a film. The sequels are decent by 1980s, chest-beating, hero-kicking-everybody's-ass film standards but the original films are good films by proper film standards.

The problem is that the popular images of Rambo (one-man-army beating entire countries with nothing but his muscles and a huge gun) and Rocky (the only boxer in the world capable of standing up to and beating unbeatable monsters) bear no relation to the characters in the original films and as a result those films tend to be unfairly lumped into the 80s meathead movie category.

Yes, 'The Return of Josey Wales'. I have it on DVD. It's a poor effort. It also has the worst picture quality I've ever seen on a colour film on DVD.

Thanks for that, guys. Not one I'd ever wanna watch by the sound of it.

Another one - Planet of the Apes.

I love ace ventura 1 and have watched it so many times over the last few years but recently i bought the 2nd film.
Although i saw it years ago i didn't realise how childish and stupid it is compared to the first film, i watched about 20 minutes and turned it off

The Matrix is the one that springs instantly to mind. I'm still in a support group for having witnessed that Zion 'rave' scene *shudder*

Well not quite all, Rocky Balboa is rather in keeping with the spirit of the original.

Aliens
Terminator 2
The Mummy Returns
I'll go with those and add:

Bill & Ted's Bogus Journey (I think it's smarter/funnier than orig).

Godfather 2 (I find the original a bit dull and much prefer this).

Matrix Reloaded (I know: heresy, and the Zion rave scenes stink - but I think this is more stupid spectacular fun than original).
