Super Hans -> RE: Movie franchises you didn't buy into 100%, literally! (25/1/2013 1:58:50 PM)
ORIGINAL: Super Hans
I'm at work so can't see my collection right now but off the top of my head...
Robocop - Only own the original. Never wanted to watch the third one, never had the inclination to buy the so-so second.
The Matrix - Only own the first. Never been too fussed about Reloaded, didn't even bother watching Revolutions.
Alien - Only got the first two, never seen 3 or 4.
Scream - Used to have 1 & 2 on video but have never bought them on DVD for some reason. My wife, oddly, owns the 3rd one on DVD. Always makes me chuckle because it's quite possibly the shittest! Don't see myself ever buying the 4th film - really didn't think it was up to much.
Terminator - Only have T2. Not sure why I don't have the first - I should watch it again but I think it was just the fact that T2 was the Terminator film of my time. Not too bothered about T3 as a whole and never wanted to see the last one.
Final Destination - My wife bought the first 3 as a boxset once, not sure the 4th & 5th are really worth buying.
Harry Potter - Think my wife has the first two, never got round to/been inclined to buy the rest.
Star Wars - Have the original trilogy boxset, only ever bought Episode 2 of the prequels (it was cheap once). Not sure if I'll ever get round to buying the other two.
Indianna Jones - Got the first 3 in a boxset, never got round to watching the 4th.
Gremlins - Have the first one only. Not sure why though as I actually really like the 2nd one! Must buy it!
Predator - To be honest, I only bought the first one in the last year or two. Never even seen the others.
Pirates of the Caribbean - Only have the first, never been bothered about watching the rest.
Probably others I've missed!
Up until the other week, I only ever owned Kill Bill Vol 1, never Vol 2... I think I was a bit disappointed with it at the time so never got round to buying it. With Django Unchained coming out though, my interest in Tarantino has been reignited so thought I'd buy it to give it another go!
You have never watched Alien3!. Give it a watch! great movie. don't bother with 4.
I have never bought the Starwars prequels either, dirty , dirty movies
I haven't! [:D] I probably should give it a go!
I think it's possibly because I'm generally not the biggest of sci-fi fans and the ones I'm likely to watch would mainly be the biggest/most mainstream/critcally acclamed ones - The Matrix, Star Wars for example.
In a weird way, I guess that has contributed to me only having seen the two biggest, most acclaimed films in the series, despite the Alien series being very popular and fairly mainstream...
