    Series You Rank In Release Order

    Another I thought of that could well go in descending order for me (when I see the remainder of the series) is The Crow. Only saw the original which is a favorite of mine, and the sequels all seem to be poorly received with only the third getting the occasional decent comment or rating. Highlander could be another. I've only seen the original, again, a favorite of mine. The sequels are all terribly received and while the second film seems to be regarded as the worst, occasionally I've seen the others rated lower. It seems with both The Crow and Highlander, the originals are the only ones that matter.

    Also for anyone else who's a fan of GB2, here's this entertaining I-Mockery.com article written for it a few years back. Definitely an enjoyable read if you like the sequel, as I always have. Seems in more recent times it's gotten a somewhat better reception.

    Ghostbusters

    It looked terrible from the previews and not even like it was a parody, more like a mockery of the first two movies and missed the boat as to what made them work so well. And I'm not against having female Ghostbusters at all but the way the new film went about it it was in such a gimmicky, insulting way that if anything re-enforced stereotypes about women rather than presenting a strong, positive portrayal of them.

    I still haven't seen the reboot/remake over a year later and am not really interested to, though I'll likely at least rent it from my library someday out of curiousity if nothing else. The original two are still long-lasting favorites of mine.

    Another series that's potentially I'd rate in descending order is Re-Animator. I've always enjoyed the original very much and only just recently saw the sequel, Bride Of Re-Animator. Not quite as good as the first but still more of the same gory fun. The consensus seems to be the third film, Beyond Re-Animator, is the weakest, but I shall seek it out and give it a fair shake as I do every film in a series.

    Wishmaster could be another for me. I recently saw the first two again and forgot how much I liked both. The first was better but the second was still pretty good. Not seen the third or fourth, but from what I've heard it seems they take a sizable dive in quality with those two.

    Bringing this back with it now being October and the Halloween/Horror season in full effect.

    Thanks to Sepiatone for liking this. Seems I'm not the only one around here with a liking for the second Poltergeist film, definitely an underrated follow-up for sure.

    May as well rate each of these in their respective descending order: Jurassic Park 1 - 10/10 2 - 8/10 3 - 6/10 4 - 4/10 RoboCop 1 - 10/10 2 - 9/10 3 - 1/10 The Mummy 1 - 9/10 2 - 8/10 3 - 7/10 Iron Man 1 - 9/10 2 - 8/10 3 - 8/10 Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 1 - 9/10 2 - 7/10 3 - 6/10 RoboCop 2 is more of an 8/10 really, but the last third or show with the awesome RoboCain showdown and excellent stop-motion effects bump it up for me. I've always liked RoboCop 2 and felt it was underrated, though definitely not as good as the first.

    Lethal Weapon is another for me that could possibly go in order of release but I really need to see them again, it's been so long. Not sure if I liked 3 or 4 better, but the original is easily the best to me with the second behind it.

    My only real exposure to the Planet Of The Apes series has been the recent reboot series which I love, all three films were excellent. I actually have a hard time picking a favorite as I feel all three have their own strengths. Sometimes depending on my mood they can go in release order for me, but it changes around for sure.

    And funny Bourne should be mentioned as that series is another that I used to rank in descending order prior to last year's Jason Bourne, which IMO is the best to date of the series. I like them all to varying degrees but felt the series just got a bit lesser as they went on until the fifth.

    Do these all go in the order of release for you? Some of these are fairly popular choices for series ranked that way.

    Never fun to get braces and I'd imagine that scene back in the day only made kids even more scared to get them.

    Series You Rank In Release Order

    Having recently rewatched the original three Poltergeist movies again, the first two are very close for me and I'm sort of undecided which of the first two I liked better. The original is a classic and I think the second is very underrated and doesn't get enough credit. The third is easily the weakest, has it's moments but overall pretty weak and forgettable.

    I've only seen the original, but The Matrix seems to be one series many agree is a case of diminishing returns with the sequels. I only saw the original and remember it being okay, I've yet to see the sequels.

    The first is easily the best but 4 was my favorite of the sequels as well. Shame as a fifth film is unlikely to happen with 4's underperformance at the box office and Wes Craven's passing. You can tell the old crew had a good time being back.

    The first is the best by an enormous margin and the drop-off in quality the series had after that is pretty immense, though I do rather like and enjoy the second film despite it's flaws. For me it's the only worthwhile sequel in the series so far. I'm cautiously optimistic for the fifth film next Summer.

    Trying to think of other film series where my ranking for them is the same as their order of release. Back To The Future could be one for me, it's been so many years since I last watched them. I remember the second was my favorite as a kid but that could well change when I re-visit the trilogy again.

    It's 50/50 for me in that regard.
  21. How do I adjust my settings so that the threads on the forum show the posts in descending order in which they were posted, rather than reverse? Viewing them in reverse is kind of distracting and awkward for me, is there a way to adjust it? Thanks.

    Descending Post Order

    Thanks for the information. Kind of unfortunate the post order can't be adjusted although it isn't that major a deal, I just prefer having it the traditional way.

    Does Jurassic Park count as Horror? I think in a way they do, kinda blurs the line between Sci-Fi/Adventure/Horror. In any case I think the original is the best by miles.

    It's the first genuinely good entry the series has had in a very long time, for sure.
