14 Movie Franchises that Need to Die — IndieWire Critics Survey

https://www.indiewire.com/2018/11/movie-franchises-that-need-to-die-1202018314/

 

Cancelling the “Avatar” franchise before it even becomes one would be ideal, but we know that James Cameron’s arrogance won’t allow that to happen. Aside from their ridiculous alleged titles, the prospect of four more movies based on a virtually forgotten blockbuster from 2009 seems more like a director’s refusal to let go than something fans are eager to consume. Surely there are audiences out there that hold this sci-fi version of “Pocahontas” with blue aliens dearly (some might even rewatch their old DVD on occasion), but will they be enough to justify the budget necessary to realize the Oscar-winner’s stubborn dream?

Even if the first sequel flops at the box-office Cameron won’t accept defeat, maybe that’s why production on all four began at once with an estimated budget of over $1 billion. In this trying times for the world, there are certainly better ways to spend such an outrageous amount of money than a vanity project that may or may not be successful. Imagine how many movies like “The Hurt Locker” Kathryn Bigelow could make with that. More often than not less is more.

When Avatar: The Way of Water makes 5 billies this article writer should probably consider suicide.

Film bloggers/critics are pathetic. They talked about Blade Runner for decades, and the sequel didn't make enough money despite rave reviews, big star, popular director. They don't know what audiences care about. The Avatar sequels will be huge.

This guy seems to have serious, unchecked  anger issues.

Not good for the heart.

He needs help.

I love Wonder Woman just as much as anyone else but I was always amused at how people who regularly complain about

third acts in superhero movies,

or superhero  movies period

or big superhero CGI fights,

mysteriously gave a free pass to Wonder Woman's third act and acted like it never happened.

 

How these people s minds work is a mystery.

That's because when people love a movie they ignore the tiny problems. But when they dislike a movie, they go full CinemaSins nitpicking the most irrelevant details.

 

When the movie overall is great, some bad CGI scene won't bother you.

The Mummy Returns had excellent WOM

@IronJimbo

lol why do people think Avatar is forgotten? is it because it doesn't have sequel and spinoffs being released every year to keep it relevant? without doubt Avatar is the most beloved blockbuster of the last 10 years, how people refuse to believe this is ridiculous.

Stupid article writes click bait for clicks. Wow. 

 

If that author could have done anything better in his life he'd achieve 1% of Jim's success. Instead he's stuck to screaming at a brick wall and offering "insight" on some random blog. Pathetic.

Tried posting this on Aquaman thread, but I've been thread-banned from that :L

@EmpireCity Is this consistent with what you're hearing? Or is he off the mark?

Not these types of reactions again. People are going to setup themselves up for MAJOR disappointment come Dec. 21st.

Aquaman has to be well reviewed. If it gets trashed by critics it will be too much drama for me handle. I already have my family members who voted for our Trump. Please WB just pay the critics this time.

Also never forget that TRASHNEY ruined Narnia. The first movie was MASSIVE and it could have been one of the top earning franchises.
