Okay, what are the worst drops in quality from one entry in a franchise to the next? I’d love to see your list. I’m leaving out Star Trek and James Bond, because they’re all over the place. Here’s mine:
1. The Matrix to The Matrix Revolutions
2. Aliens to Alien 3
3. Spider-Man 2 to Spider-Man 3
4. Batman Returns to Batman Forever
5. X2: X-Men United to X-Men The Last Stand
6. Superman II to Superman III
7. Shrek to Shrek 2
8. The Godfather Part II to The Godfather Part III
9. Friday the 13th: The Final Chapter to Friday the 13th Part V: A New Beginning (obscure, but I’m a fan)
10. Fletch to Fletch Lives
I’m sure I’m forgetting zillions, and I’m not trying that hard so everyone else can throw into the pot. Rambo: FBP II to Rambo III stick out too, as does Caddyshack, and Ghostbusters.
