As a follow up to the Battle Of The Trilogies post, which movies that were only two-parts long(at least so far)would you like to see a made into a trilogy?

My vote's for “Bill & Ted's Austintatious Wanderings”.

My dream bill and ted 3rd movie is a martix-esque parody

X3 the Last Stand. Seriously, you could have gotten three good movies out of all the plost they forced into that one.

But I kid. Anyway, there's no particular movie I can think of off the top of my head that should have been “trilogized,” since I generally prefer a movie to be somewhat self-contained. I could sit and list trilogies (or at least, sequels) that should never have been made until the cows come home (which, considering the fact that I don't own any cows, could take a while).

Pinky TA the movie.
That SO should've been made into a trilogy…
When they actually make it that is.
It should be a trilogy so that I will make more money out of the idea, not because the story deserves it.

As for movies that really HAVE been made, there should be a third Conan movie! Red Sonja just doesn't count… In NO way did that count. Swachenager should take a break from politics, dig up Mako and return as an old, fat, balding Conan with his zombie Japanese wizard side kick.

The Mummy has to be a trilogy. The first one was freakin awesome and the second was pretty good too.

The Scorpian King… of course, that was more like a spin-off…

They never really showed how Scorpion King went from being the hero in his own prequal, to the evil scorptaur from Mummy 2.

Another trilogy shoulda been…Breakin'!

I agree with Ozone. Conan the Barbarian was originally written as a trilogy, well techincally it was originally written to be like James Bond. They should resurrect Conan. I wouldn't even mind seeing a remake trilogy, not that anyone could deliver the lines like Ah-nold…

There we are: Two votes for Conan!
Seriously, that would've worked Great as a trilogy, going by the coolness of the first movie.
The Conan TV series sucked though, and no other barbarian movie has been able to match it…

Yep! It came on in the wake of the success of Hercules, Sinbad, and Xena in the late 90's sometime, so it followed their formula of being much ‘larger than life’ and a bit cartoonish. Conan had quite a few ‘friends’ tagging along… It reminded me a bit more of a live action version of Sheera or He-man in some ways. :)
It stared that huge hulking French (?) muscle guy who was in Gladiator.

I'd vote for Ghostbusters 3, provided most of the original cast weren't in it. Not to put down Bill Murrey and the rest, but they're a little too to fit in their jumpsuits anymore. Oh, and definately no Slimer!

Did I mention no Slimer? I'll mention it again, NO SLIMER!

there was a cartoon spin off called Extreme Ghostbusters about the second generation of ghostbusters after egon and co got to old to bust ghosts.

It was a pretty good series and a movie on that would rock. If not they could at least make a remake of the original.

Also I could immagine Ashton Kutcher in a ghostbuster movie. Not that I'm a big fan of his

Ghostbusters 2 got too commercial. It really wasn't any good compared to the original with all the retarded changes they made to the characters to make it more “kid friendly” and closer to the cartoon in appearance. They were working on a third movie for a while and it was planned to be more like what they had originally planned for the first film. The original cast would have been too old to actually bust ghosts, so they were going to bring in a younger team and the whole thing was supposed to be in the future with better special effects and so forth. Problem is, they couldn't get it to not suck, so the movie was canned.

Holy shit! I remember that show now! I didn't even think it was Conan…….but now that I look back on it………….good lord…… Yeah, he was German, an old gym friend of Ah-nold, actually.

German! Hahaha, that would fit. All the best muscle guys are German (or German speaking at least); Let's see, Ah-nold (sort of), The new Conan, Till Lindemann of Rammstien, Jaeger… :)

Kull the Conqueror, that starred Kevin Sorbo was billed as a Conan related pic (because the story was an old Rober E Howard one I think), I don't remember it being much good either though.

I vote we have Jaeger for the next Conan movie!

Riddick.

I thinks there's a cartoonish movie or something for it, but I'd like another live-action film before it gets branded as a Trilogy

Seriously, Pitch Black and Chronicles of Riddick were AWESOME!

Chronicles of Riddick was supposed to be the first film in a trilogy, but the movie did so poorly in the box office they aren't making the others. I have to admit, i hate when a movie ends openly and then the series gets abandoned.

It was indeed a Howard. The Kull stories were like prequels to Conan. Conan's people were descended from Atlantean survivors. Kulls people were Atlantean survivors.
Handshakes and mustaches are the only ways to know how much you can truly trust a man.

That doesn't make much sense.

It's already the sequel to Pitch Black.

Technically, A New Hope is a sequel to Revenge of the Sith, but most people consider them part of two different trilogies. The Chronicles of Riddick was supposed to be the first film of three that told a larger story. Pitch Black introduces some characters, but the story itself has very little to do with Chronicles of Riddick. The studio tried to tie some things together in the naming conventions, but it feels more like a spin-off than a sequel.

I myself think the world might be in need of Hot Shots: Part Trois. Or possibly Kill Bill Volume 3, wherein Bill's soul would get revived in vampire form, and it's up to Beatrix and her now-twelve-year-old firecracker of a daughter to kick his ass all over again. Only the Deadly Viper Assassination Squad are back… and they're zombies!
