    Today, The Guardian have published an article asking if the prequel to Snow White & The Huntsman, to be geniously titled ‘The Huntsman’ (see what they did there?), is the most pointless film follow up of all time.

    But is it? What to you is the most pointless film follow up of all time? Any prequel, sequel and whatever other ‘-equel’ are in the mix for this.

    Some ideas to start you off: Titanic 2, Grease 2, The Flintstones in Viva Rock Vegas, S. Darko, The Hangover 2/3, Hannibal.

    Dumb and Dumberer is amazingly bad. But my vote goes to X-Men Origins a Wolverine. The lowest point of the X-Men Franchise so far (and hopefully ever).

    Any sequel to Leprechaun comes to mind. (I love the first one though).

    “The Exorcist 2” (though the third one is vastly underrated)>

    ‘Son of the Mask’. I mean, really, need I say more?

    There are some obvious recent blockbusters that come to mind, but really the most unnecessary sequels were the ones for great, older films (especially when the original casts didn’t return). I’m talking The Sting II, the Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid prequel and sequel (the f?) and things of that ilk. And then there’s stuff like the French Connection and Chinatown sequels which just seem really unneeded, but they do have the original stars and I haven’t seen them so I won’t judge. Also, any direct-to-DVD sequel is the definition of pointless.

    Another potential contender for pointless sequel is the upcoming London has Fallen. I even liked the original Olympus has Fallen, but talk about pointless.

    Any direct-to-DVD sequel is the definition of pointless.

    Not really because they get good money from undiscerning fans without inflicting themselves on mainstream culture. I’m all for them.

    Hmm, well when you put it that way…

    The Two Jakes was bloody awful. Such a disappointment.

    The Exorcist II
    Jaws II, 3D, and IV
    Any of the straight to DVD sequels from Disney (Little Mermaid II, Cinderella II, Pocahontas II, The Lion King II, etc.)
