Discussion is there another franchise where the second movie is the worst?

286 Upvotes

Watching the Mission Impossible Franchise, I can say without a doubt the second movie is a bit of a step back in quality under the first.

I still enjoy it, but in a stylized "gun-fu" sort of way. The rest of the franchise is pretty solid and are just well made movies regardless of genre.

Looking back, it seems like it's kind of weird for a franchise to have the first sequel (second movie) be completely outshined by every other movie in the same franchise.

I'm sure there are other examples, what are they?

Discussion Have you ever watched a movie and felt sorry for the actors in it?

In the first Baby Geniuses movie, they had those babies do stuff an actual baby obviously couldn't do like dancing or fighting grown ass men. To be able to do that they had a stunt double with dwarfism take their place then badly photoshopped the babies face onto them.

So yeah they cast an adult (or at least someone much, much older than infancy/toddler age), had them put on a diaper, and then photoshopped a babies face onto them.

That's gotta be humiliating. I hope the paycheck was worth what was probably a huge assault on their dignity.

Discussion Most under-appreciated film by a director you admire?

27 Upvotes

My favourite director is Hitchcock, who has countless classics, but a film I absolutely adored that I never see in Hitchcock lists is "Lifeboat". It's a single setting movie set in... A lifeboat, after a ship is sunk by a German U-boat leaving a number of passengers stranded. It has funny little quick back and forth moments of dialogue and the classic Hitchcock tension with some events that take place on said lifeboat.
