Schindler's List 2: The Secret of the Ooze

The Los Angeles Daily News posted their list of the 20 Most Unnecessary Sequels, which I suppose serves as a companion-piece to Entertainment Weekly's very recent 25 Worst Sequels Ever Made.

  • [T]here may be no sequel so despised as the unnecessary sequel. It could be a second chapter in a story that required no further exposition or a crass attempt to cash in on a gimmick whose novelty could barely survive the first film, much less a follow-up. While all sequels are motivated by money, these cash-ins are particularly odious. It'd be like Tim Allen making another "Santa Clause" movie - which he is, by the way. It arrives in November, at which point, this list will be duly updated.
That's all well and good--and thankfully both lists recognize the god-awful stank that is Blues Brothers 2000--but I'm disappointed to find absolutely no mention of 2 Fast 2 Furious. You sons of a bitch.
