30 Day Movie Meme

I like films, but I don't keep up with new releases and can best be described as an infrequent cinema goer. I usually leave it to other people to drag me along, and so the films I see aren't necessarily the ones I would have picked myself. The last time I went was some 6 weeks ago, and the film was Inception, which my friend really wanted to see while I wasn't bothered. It was OK; a bit long though, and rather predictable at the end.

Apart from the films I occasionally watch in art houses and multiplexes, in my life I've seen hundreds (thousands?) on TV and on video/DVD. Sadly, I don't remember them all. Still, I'm reasonably confident that I'll be able to dredge up enough of my memories of the silver screen to complete this 30 day film meme that I've snatched from debris4spike:

Day 01 - Sequel that should not have been made
Day 02 - Movie that you think more people should see
Day 03 - Favorite Oscar-nominated movie from most recent ballot
Day 04 - Movie that makes you laugh every time
Day 05 - Movie you loathe
Day 06 - Movie that makes you cry every time
Day 07 - Least favorite movie by a favorite actor or actress ...
Day 08 - Movie that should be required high school viewing ...
Day 09 - Best scene ever
Day 10 - A movie you thought you wouldn't like but ended up loving
Day 11 - A movie that disappointed you
Day 12 - Best soundtrack/background music in a scene
Day 13 - Favorite animated movie
Day 14 - Favorite film in black and white
Day 15 - Best musical
Day 16 - Your guilty pleasure movie
Day 17 - Favorite series of related movies
Day 18 - Favorite title sequence
Day 19 - Best movie cast
Day 20 - Favorite kiss
Day 21 - Favorite romantic couple
Day 22 - Favorite final scene/line
Day 23 - Best explosion or action scene
Day 24 - Quote you use most often
Day 25 - A movie you plan on watching (old or new)
Day 26 - Freakishly weird movie ending
Day 27 - Best villain
Day 28 - Most overhyped movie
Day 29 - Movie you have watched more than ten times
Day 30 - Saddest death scene
Day 31 - Scene that made you stand up and cheer

Day 01 - Sequel that should not have been made:

Poltergeists, pod people and psychopaths frighten me, so to me any horror film, let alone its plethora of sequels, represents a waste of celluloid...but fear obviously sells, and so I won't say any of the follow-ups of Halloween or Friday the 13th shouldn't have been made. But when the original film works perfectly well as a stand-alone, and the sequel has no loose ends to tie up or anything of interest to add to the earlier narrative, I can't see the need for one. Which means that IMO, Speed 2 qualifies as sequel that should not have been made.
