Bambi (1942)

Director: David Hand
Starring: John Sutherland, Paula Winslowe, Sterling Holloway (voices)
Budget: $860k
Box Office: $270m

Plot: Seminal Disney animation from the golden era. Bambi the fawn negotiates woodland friendships and romantic entanglements, while easing into the role of The Great Prince Of The Forest. Successive generations are permanently scarred by the death of Bambi’s mother.

Bambi II (2006)

Director: Brian Pimental
Starring: Alexander Gould, Patrick Stewart, Andrea Bowen (voices)

Plot: A so-called “midquel”, this takes place while Bambi is still young (the original film covered four stages of his life, through to adulthood) and is basically about little Bambi learning to be brave in order to impress his father. And who wouldn’t want to impress Captain Picard? Part of the film happens on Groundhog Day, but doesn’t involve the little fawn reliving his mother’s death over and over. That would just be cruel. Of course, Disney have made a dungeon-full of these DTV sequels, including Jungle Book II, Lady and the Tramp II, 101 Dalmatians II and Cinderella II. Terrence Malick adapted his The New World from Pocahontas II.*

*We’ve possibly got that wrong.

Ugh. I can't believe that I actually know all but about three of those. I also hate that I am shocked to discover the omissions of Bachelor Party 2: The Last Temptation starring Harland Williams The Net 2.0 Arrival II with Patrick Muldoon Sniper 2-4 Substitute 2-4 Butterfly Effect 2-3, Dukes of Hazard prequel and Lake Placid 2-4 More

3 The curses of working in CEX
As an ex CEX employee I have heard of approximately 25 of these, thankfully not seen any of them though. The amount of awful straight to DVD sequels that used to come through the doors, perfectly emcompasses the more money than sense idea. I think recognition should be given to the long running franchises of some films, for example seven Children of the Corn films seems a little excessive. Also Titanic 2 anyone? More

"Cruel Intentions 3 (2004) meanwhile, revolves around Kerr Smith. She’s supposed to be Gellar/Adams’s cousin, but that tenuous connection is all you get." Um, Kerr Smith is a guy. Don't you dare get Dawson's Creek facts wrong when I'm around. More

5 RE: Poor functionality
L: joehodrien I'm sure this list is interesting, but it's far too clunky and tiresome to click through. Must the entire page reload for each entry? I made it to about the tenth one before giving up. Webmasters take note! hey do - I think it's clicks and how they relate to advertising income. I hate it too More

I pretty much knew all of those existed. Except, the Mighty Ducks animated movie, although as that isn't actually a sequel, I still feel good about my knowledge of shit films. More

The Skulls (2000) featured Paul Walker and Joshua Jackson was followed by The Skulls 2 (2002) starring Robin Dunne, a fixture on this list I believe and The Skulls 3 (2004) starring no-one unless you count Barry Bostwick from The Rocky Horror Picture Show. Bachelor Party (1984) starring the legendary Tom Hanks followed in 2008 by Bachelor Party 2: The Last Temptation starring literally no one. As you can tell I've far to much time on my hands and have heard and or seen most of the films on this list! More

14 Troll - Troll 2
My favorite worst film of all time - Troll 2 - 1990 Director: Claudio Fragasso The worst plot - Goblins trying to get you to eat their fluorescent green pies so that you will turn into a plant so that then they can eat you (!?!?!?0 The worst script - OMG it is sooooo bad ! Elliott: "I'm the victim of a nocturnal rapture. I have to release my lowest instincts with a woman." UNBELIEVABLY worst acting - seriously, watching this with friends + beer takes twice as long, as you have to rewind it to see just how bad it was ! Worst effects - may have been created in the directors shed. If so he does not have Peter Jackson's flair for the home effects. This was recommended to me by Eli Roth at Halloween, where he tweeted his top 5 Halloween movies, and I can see why. IT'S SO TERRIBLE - IT'S BRILLIANT ! The punch-line......? There are no Trolls in it. It has nothing to do with John Carl Buechler's 1986 Troll whatsoever. More

Yesterday I discovered, via Amazon recommendations, Amelie 2 exists. It's really a completely unrelated film that just stars Audry Tatou called Happenstance, but the ad men saw an opportunity. I still want to see it though :( More
