Top 10 Worst Movie Sequel Titles

Owh yeah.. There is a very long long time we are not talking about movie. Maybe because of time, money also--so, I didn't have much energy to waste in the cinema every-weak. 

But, today we try to take a look at some of worst sequel title in history. May this will motivate our producers to make not such a fool mistakes like them. *bajet bagus!WOHA*

6. The Flintstones in Viva Rock Vegas

1994's The Flintstones dosed audiences in nostalgic camp with a live-action version of Hanna-Barbera's beloved cartoon classic. Fans seemed smitten with the film, which grossed nearly $350 million worldwide. But when film execs released a sequel in 2000, its title was nearly as bad as its plot. The Flintstones in Viva Rock Vegas is a prequel to the first film, and tells the story of how Fred and Barney met Wilma and Betty while living in the Flintstones-esque Las Vegas. The film's title is a pun on the 1964 film Viva Las Vegas, starring Elvis Presley and Ann-Margaret, who appears in a cameo role as (ugh...) Ann-Margrock.

7. Live Free or Die Hard


What does this title actually mean? We've been trying to figure this out. So let us progress through the stages here. First you die hard. Then you die harder. Then you die hard with a vengeance, like "Yeah, I'm seriously dying hard here!" Then...you live free or die hard? Are those the only two options here? Are we basically returning to the initial concept, because it seems that we're just dying hard all over again...

Also, Justin Long's here. That's right, the Mac guy's in an action film. And he's not half-bad. So, watch this movie or die hard.
8. Lara Croft Tomb Raider: The Cradle of Life

The Cradle of Life sounds like a really sappy Lifetime movie about a mother being wrongfully accused of matricide or a really boring documentary about Earth's origins. Either way the title is just bad. The movie is actually about the search for Pandora's Box which is hidden in the Cradle of Life, the birthplace of all humanity. Therefore, a more apt name probably would have been Lara Croft Tomb Raider: Pandora's Box...though we're not even sure that would be an improvement.

9. Howling III: The Marsupials


There's really no way not to mock this title. The third entry in the 1980s werewolf film series takes place in Australia (hence the title), though it does not feature werewolfs with pouches or werewolfs that bounce, because that might have made the movie entertaining. At one point, a woman even gives birth to a werewolf baby. Also, this is a horror movie titled The Marsupials, which sort of disqualifies it from being called a horror movie.

10. Basic Instinct 2: Risk Addiction

When you're Sharon Stone, could you really ever outdo yourself? Stone's lewd and lascivious leg crossing in the 1992 erotic thriller Basic Instinct was just one sultry moment in a movie that had little problem maintaining the heat. The '92 movie was a critical hit, and helped solidify Stone's star. She was wise enough to avoid roles that directly mimicked the iconic role, and she waited fourteen years to return to the character in the London-set movie titled Risk Addiction. Yes, Risk Addiction. Not surprisingly, the film flopped at the box office, which proves that doubling up on vaguely carnal titles is a pretty limp marketing strategy.
