Opinion Battles Round 11

Which Film Should Never Have Had a Sequel?

We as an audience can find ourselves sitting through endless sequels, prequels and remakes, some we enjoyed others we find ourselves wondering why they made another film in the first place at all. We are going to be looking at the films that should have remained stand-alone movies because the sequels have only ever eaten into the reputation of what was a great film.

Opinion Battles Round 8

Favourite Car Chase Scene

Each year we seem to see an action film go out of its way to make sure we get a more jaw-dropping car chase scene. These will often become the most iconic scenes in what can be average action films but every time we sit at the edge of our seat filled with tension to what will be happening next. Today we will pick our favourite car chase scenes.

If you want to join in the next round of Opinion Battles we will be looking at our Favourite Talking Animals. If you want to take part email your choices to moviereviews101@yahoo.co.ukby 30th April 2017

We get Arnold Schwarzenegger facing off against an alien creature with better weapons then him in the middle of the jungle. A…
