In a time when every halfway decent movie has been remade, re-released, turned into a trilogy, and parodied on YouTube, it’s hard to think that there are fantastic movies that never got a well deserved follow up. Here are ten of the ‘90s best movies that deserve a sequel as soon as possible. I mean if Big Momma’s House can get two sequels, surely these hits can get one.

1. Twister

Year Released: 1996

Box Office: $494,471,524

How A Sequel Would Work: Obviously tornado season happens every year, so after over a decade of Helen Hunt and Bill Paxton working in labs and research facilities, something forces them out of field retirement. They must reassemble the gang, along with some new faces, to figure out what’s causing the biggest tornado outbreak in the country’s history. Eventually, they come face to face with not one, but two F5 tornados that merge together into a monster twister unlike anyone has ever seen.

2. Space Jam

Year Released: 1996

Box Office: $230,418,342

How A Sequel Would Work: After nearly 20 years of peace with the Toons, there is a new disturbance. It’s a group even more sinister than the Monstars; the Miami Heat. The Heat want to destroy the Toons just like they destroyed the NBA. With nowhere else to turn, Bugs Bunny and the gang have to talk Michael Jordan into coming out of retirement and playing one last game. Can he defeat the most evil team the world has ever seen? (Spoiler alert: yes)

3. The Fifth Element

Year Released: 1997

Box Office: $263,920,180

How A Sequel Would Work: Milla Jovovich has become one of the biggest sci-fi queens in the world with the Resident Evil franchise, and Bruce Willis does literally any movie that’s offered to him, so it’s shocking that The Fifth Element hasn’t gotten a sequel yet. As long as Chris Tucker could still wear that cylinder yellow wig, it would be a success.

4. True Lies

Year Released: 1994

Box Office: $378,882,411

How A Sequel Would Work: The original was so fun and ended with the perfect setup for a sequel, so it seems as though Arnold’s political career was the only thing that prevented another installment from already happening. The sequel has endless possibilities, but adding in Jamie Lee Curtis as a spy could make for an interesting dynamic. My only request is that Bill Paxton’s character be brought in for a pseudo spy mission that also ends with him urinating his pants. Is that too much to ask?

5. Deep Blue Sea

Year Released: 1999

Box Office: $164,648,142

How A Sequel Would Work: What if there was another hyper intelligent shark that no one in the original crew knew about? It was Samuel L. Jackson’s secret project and, since he was eaten in the most fantastic was imaginable, his secret was never shared. The shark has been building an army for years and is planning a massive attack on the world. Imagine Jaws, but it’s hundreds of sharks with planned, calculated strikes globally synchronized all at once. It would be great.

6. Armageddon

Year Released: 1998

Box Office: $553,709,733

How A Sequel Would Work: First of all, you have to completely turn your mind off to enjoy the original. Keep that going. In the sequel a group of asteroids are headed towards earth and NASA knows exactly who to bring in to stop it. What they don’t realize is that, Bruce Willis is still alive! He somehow got off the asteroid and made his way to an abandoned space station where he’s lived for the past several years. Again, don’t think about it too much. Just let the sweet sounds of Aerosmith mixed with space exploring Ben Affleck take you to a better place.

7. Leon: The Professional

Year Released: 1994

Box Office: $19,501,238

How A Sequel Would Work: Natalie Portman is all grown up and finds out that there was a secret crime boss that was overseeing the murder of her family as well as Leon. She must try to continue to blend in with the life she’s established while also hunting down this master criminal and getting revenge for his crimes. Jean Reno could still be in the movie with flashbacks and dream sequences. It just wouldn’t be the same without him.

8. The Long Kiss Goodnight

Year Released: 1996

Box Office: $89,456,761

How A Sequel Would Work: Remember how much butt Geena Davis kicked once she realized she wasn’t just a wife and a mom, but actually a crime fighting super warrior? The sequel would reveal that she had her action hero memories suppressed so she could go about her normal life. After a few random events start to trigger her old memories, she begins to realize that Samuel L. Jackson wasn’t actually her friend, he was her bitter enemy. Now she must put the pieces together to bring him down before he eliminates her once and for all.

9. Event Horizon

Year Released: 1997

Box Office: $26,673,242

How A Sequel Would Work: Event Horizon is one of the most underrated and terrifying movies of the last 20 years. If you haven’t seen it, go watch it now. A sequel could reveal that the Event Horizon ship wasn’t destroyed after all. Turns out it can’t be destroyed that easily. A new crew stumbles upon it hoping to find some resources inside. Unfortunately for them, Sam Neill’s character has become a supreme evil being and the nightmares are so much worse than anything experienced by the original crew. I really want this movie p0-pto happen.

10. Brainscan

Year Released: 1994

Box Office: $4,352,000

How A Sequel Would Work: Ok so maybe the original didn’t make THAT much money, but that’s because it was way ahead of its time. Brainscan basically paved the way for virtual reality gaming, at least in my opinion and probably no one else’s. But still, it seems like a prime time for Trickster to make a comeback and introduce his game to a whole new generation of horny, murderous teens.
