The Star Wars sequel trilogy is the definition of unnecessary. EVERYTHING was wrapped-up in Return of the Jedi. Everything.

So I don't care how many movies George Lucas promised in 1979, the fact of the matter is the story was concluded

I think it was a cool idea to show the effects of the power vacuum left after the fall of the empire. I just wish it was done well by people that seem like they actually enjoy Star Wars. The basic remake of ANH without a planned ending for one of the most successful film series was the dumbest choices to make

>without a planned ending

That's true of all Star Wars trilogies, though. The norm in Hollywood is not plan ahead: if you plan, you get "locked" into a certain direction with the plot and the characters that you can't necessarily get out of, if audiences don't like that direction.

The classic Star Wars trilogy was like that: hence out-of-left-field nonesense like Leia being Luke's sister. But even the prequel trilogy was like that: it was only planned insofar as Lucas knew "Yoda and Obi Wan must survive and go into exile, Anakin must turn into Darth Vader, Palpatine and the Stormtroopers take over."

TS4, don’t get me wrong, I enjoyed seeing Woody and Bo reunite after being separated for a few years, but it’s worth mentioning that TS3 concluded it perfectly with the characters being passed down to a new owner.

The first scorpion king was a fun dumb action movie that fit in with the times. The other four were trash

Rambo:last blood. The previous chapter Rambo (4) aka riverboat Rambo wrapped Everything up perfectly. Actually an excellent movie.

The majority of horror sequels, particularly in the slasher genre.

Don't Breathe 2 was what instantly popped into mind.

Avatar 2. It was a tech demo in my opinion.

Donnie Darko 2... nothing short of an attempt to ruin a movie

American Graffiti 2. The biggest stars weren't in it, and the plot sucked.

The OG Halloween 2 from 1981 and pretty much all of the other Halloween sequels. The lore became so ridiculous and convoluted.

MILF Bang Bus #12. Very derivative and uninspired.

Jurassic Park. The Lost World deviated so far from the book and the third one just cobbled together unused bits and added a new monster and everything after that has just been CGI dinosaur cash grabs. But specifically unnecessary? Idk. You could say a million action or horror movies but the whole point is to churn out product and make money just like every JP sequel. Unnecessary would imply that the story was wrapped up and didn't need to continue. First thing that comes to mind is 300 Rise of an Empire or whatever. Didn't even have anything to do with the 300 Spartans besides flashbacks. Just doesn't need to exist even if Eva Green is hypnotic in it.
