Two Movies Only (576 views)

i thought this would make both a nice forum thread and a resource for movie hunters as well.
so, name two movies where one is a sequel of the other: for example, 'romancing the stone' (1984) and 'jewel of the nile' (1985). that second movie was a sequel to the first and there has never been a third one made, so they stand at two movies.
another example might be 'grindhouse' (2007), which was made of two stand-alone movies that were produced as an [intentional] double feature. okay, that one may be fairly unique. maybe someone else can think of another two movies that otherwise seem or should be connected?

*before anyone says 'godfather' or 'superman' [the two Donner films]: i believe those would serve better on a 'wish they had left well enough alone' thread, but duly noted.

The Planet of the Apes series started with one movie but as the popularity grew they created a story around it that eventually came full circle. You can tell the budget for each movie is less and less. They never planned to make that many movies.

@unboundd I love the movies but it's clear they didn't expect the series to go that far.

I know people will argue this but I'll say the same thing about Star Wars. I really doubt George Lucas wrote all three movies and started with Episode Four. He had no idea it would be so huge that he'd have to write a whole universe around it.

@BrunoAxemaker the thing i really dig now is how much better the side story films are, much more fun than the main series which is so perpetually bogged down with drama. looool that frog neck lucas, trying to teach us spirituality or life lessons and crap about people accepting their differences. we have too many religions as it is smiley

Yes, the Planet of the Apes movies ended this way;they launched a big Holy A-bomb,and earth became a burnt-out cinder.--Kind of similar to how scientists say we might be in 12 yrs.

(Global warming marches on,and may be seriously killing civilization within next 12 yrs.It makes all other problems look stupid.--who cares what the EU DOES,when a hunk of the planet,or all,will be burnt cinder in 12 yrs.?)The original planet of the Apes series were genius,really.That guy could write!First,the Twilight Zone,then APES?Bruno,you an Ape fan,too?you got good taste! smiley

@clarachan1355 I love Planet of the Apes. I couldn't watch the last one though. Just couldn't make it through scenes of apes talking without subtitles. At least the originals had them speaking English with British accents like gorillas should.

@clarachan1355 the tools of conquest do not necessarily come with bombs, and explosions, and fallout. there are weapons that are simply thoughts, attitudes, prejudices, to be found only in the minds of men. for the record, prejudices can kill and suspicion can destroy; and a thoughtless, frightened search for a scapegoat has a fallout all of its own for the children, and the children yet unborn. and the pity of it is, that these things cannot be confined to the Twilight Zone.

I'm not sure I understand. so.. 2 movie sequels.

Addams Family & Addams Family Values. I love both.

Alien, 1979, Ridley Scott and Aliens, 1986, James Cameron. Now both films were not made to produce a series.. but the key was the title.
The movie Aliens.. was titled in the plural instead of Alien 2, because Fox and Gale Anne Hurd the producer & Cameron were told.. see the s, as a dollar sign $. Alien$. We could overlap with Prometheus and Covenant as prequel sequels. smiley

@EUNOIA it's okay really, but the point was to find movies that had no more than one sequel ever made to them. hence 'Two Movies Only'. there are a ton of movies with garbage sequels that we would rather forget, but i was hoping we could keep within the guideline of this thread. your comment has the making of another thread though, like 'sequels we wish they hadn't made' for example.

@box i don't know, they've had since 2010 to do something more than tease us with a script and leave the fans guessing. the thing is we've had walking dead every week and the odd Train to Busan type movies since then and just might have got our fill, at least enough so people might not feel like rushing out on opening weekend and making another 28 successful. i'm not opposed to the possibility though, it just feels like the whole franchise has descended to relying on buzz so people won't forget.
