10 Films That Deserve Sequels

Come on Hollywood, you LOVE sequels, right?

Hollywood loves a sequel. 5 of the 10 highest grossing films of 2015 have been sequels, with one, Furious 7, being the latest in the hopefully endless Fast & The Furious franchise. While Jurassic World and Avengers: Age Of Ultron arguably did not live up to the original movies, Mission: Impossible -Rogue Nation may actually have been the best of the Mission Impossible series. And keep in mind that the new Hunger Games movie is yet to be released, to say nothing of Star Wars: The Force Awakens. The dominance of sequels shows no signs of abating. So if the film industry is so obsessed with sequels, why do they so rarely make them for the movies we love the most? Obviously studios' decisions are primarily dictated by finances but if huge returns were the only concern, we might never have got Richard Linklater's Before trilogy and any number of horror franchises would have combusted before they began. Here are a few films that deserve another chapter (or another series of chapters but we'll settle for one to start). Some of them left dangling narrative threads, some of them still have a huge fanbase and some of them...well, some of them are just too good to let lie.
