Title: you've seen the sequel/s, but not the original...
Post by: zombie #1 on November 11, 2010, 05:32:20 PM
...kind of a flip around of Darksider's thread (hope you don't mind :wink:)


I've seen Saw 6. but none of the others

also seen 'I Still Know What You Did Last Summer', but not the first one

strangely, Terminator 2 is one of my fav action films since it came out, but to this day I have never seen 'Terminator'!


any more, add on...

Not quite what you're talking about, but I managed to see the Evil Dead series in reverse order.  Army of Darkness first, then later, Evil Dead 2, then much later the first Evil Dead.

ok, maybe I didn't put it too well...

I mean are there any films which have a sequel, or sequels, and you've seen one of these sequels, but you've never seen the original 'Number 1' in the series...

i.e. if someone's seen Jaws 2 and Jaws :The Revenge, but somehow they've never seen 'Jaws'

that kind of thing  :thumbup:

I understand what you meant.  I just thought I'd throw that out there.

I've always seen the original first. In some cases there is no need to see the original, like Troll or Bloody Murder.

I saw Army of Darkness a long time ago, and saw Evil Dead 2 a couple years back.  I still don't think I've seen the original all the way through, but from what I understand there is a LOT of overlap between 1 and 2, and everything is summarized in AOD anyway.

Still love that avatar, btw.  And I especially love the description that comes up on the Comcast guide for it: "This time, the trick is on a doctor (whatever the actor's name is) who stumbles upon a plot."  That's the whole thing.   :bouncegiggle:

To the other post's point, why the hell would anyone watch Jaws 2 before the original?  I mean, the only reason you'd ever get tricked into seeing the 2nd one is if you saw how cool the first one was....

Imagine if someone saw 2010 before 2001 - they'd never want to watch the good one!

Halloween 3 and many others but I still really haven't sat all the way through the original.

fair play...I expect that probably is true for most folks on here. I've really slacked with my movie watching in some areas  :drink:

this thread hasn't really worked lol

I saw the remake of The Blob before seeing the original.

One I'd wager a lot of people on here have seen the sequel but not the original is Master of the Flying Guillotine - as the opening and some flashback sequences make clear, it is the sequel to The One-Armed Boxer AKA The Chinese Professionals.  I have a copy of the original, but I started watching it only to find out my copy's quality was so bad it wasn't worth watching.  Still haven't gotten around to getting a new copy just yet, but there really isn't a definitive release of it, unlike Master of the Flying Guillotine.  Too bad, as it looks like good stuff.

I saw Nemesis 2 some time long ago and really hated it enough to not give the original a chance to this day... granted, I was about 6 years old XD

I saw EVIL DEAD 2 before the original.

I also saw FRIDAY THE 13TH PART 2 and HALLOWEEN 2 before the originals.

Going further back, I saw SON OF FRANKENSTEIN many, many years before seeing FRANKENSTEIN, or BRIDE OF FRANKENSTEIN, even.  :smile:

Well, The Final Dimension and the "fixed" version of Highlander 2 are passable.

Normally i would never watch a sequel without watching its predicessor
I finally broke that when I saw Silent Night Deadly Night 2 without seeing 1
I had copies of both, and 1 would not play, so my bad movie group just decided we would press forward to 2
lucky for us, 2 is about 75% rehash of 1.

**GARBAGE DAY!!**

I saw FRANKENSTEIN MEETS THE WOLFMAN long I saw the WOLFMAN or any FRANKENSTEIN films...or any horror film at all,for that matter! It was the first horror film I had ever seen.
I saw BILLY JACK long before I saw the BORN LOSERS.
Iv'e seen many Paul Naschy werewolf movies-but never his first one-The NIGHT OF THE WOLFMAN (1968).

The Killer Tomato series. Seen the sequels, not the original.

Also, did see Sleepaway Camp 2&3 long before seeing the original.

I've seen the 2nd Bourne movie and the 2nd Mission Impossible movie, but never saw the first ones.

I've seen the 2nd Bourne movie and the 2nd Mission Impossible movie, but never saw the first ones.

OUCH.   :bluesad:

The first MI movie was actually pretty good - the requisite amount of Tom Cruise / action movie cheesiness, but very entertaining.  The second one was a John Woo abomination.  They turned Tom Cruise's character into a cartoon of real-life Tom Cruise.  It's like they tore up the character from the original and rewrote him completely with no carryover whatsoever.  Turrble.

Actually, it's funny - on both of those (Bourne and MI), I haven't actually intentionally not seen them.  Just for one reason or another, I never got around to seeing them and just happened to catch the sequels when friends were watching them (didn't see either one in theaters).  I actually always intended to see the originals on both, but just haven't found the time (yet, somehow, I manage to find the time to go to screenings of The Room twice a month - go figure).  I definitely intend to see them, and especially MI on your recommendation.  Thanks!

That goes for me, too. I saw both BILLY JACK and THE TRIAL OF BILLY JACK (both at the theater!) but I still have never seen THE BORN LOSERS.

I still haven't seen BILLY JACK GOES TO WASHINGTON.  :bluesad:

Highlander 2 is one of those sequels that isn't too bad in and of itself, but expands on the story in a way that significantly diminishes the original.

It's like the Star Wars prequels suddenly turning the Force into some kind of microbial infection. The implications of the badness spread backward into better movies.

It's more than that, though - they actually went back and edited the originals to make them conform to the stupid new CGI'ed to death prequels.  That's far more nefarious than just making a bad sequel.  <hurl>

I saw Evil Dead 2 fist, then about 20 minutes of Evil Dead (that tree rape scene is WAAAAAY to long)
Never seen Troll, but I have seen- and own- Troll 2
Scene nearly 89% of Batman Returns, but none of the rest (Those last two 90's batman films, ugh!)

Not answering the question, sorry, but I'm probably one of the few 80s kids that just never got around to watching TRON. Rented it recently after watching Legacy and being surprised that it wasn't THAT bad...in fact, I'd say it is better than the 1st. Sorry.

Puppet Master: I've seen one of the sequals, can't remember which, and that's it. I'm curious, though.
