16 – 20 Years Between Films

Every original movie on this list is a timeless classic that will forever have a stronghold in the movie industry – their sequels, however, are considered to be some of the worst films ever made. George Lucas will never live down Jar Jar, the Blues Brothers’ good name was soiled for no apparent reason, and the last Indiana Jones film even coined the phrase “Nuke the fridge” it was so bad.

Despite some tough competition, The Godfather: Part III is still considered to be one of the worst, if not the very worst, sequel ever made – it was an offer audiences and critics chose to refuse.
