List Rules List includes movies that do not currently have sequels but should

Some of the greatest movies of all time do not have sequels. For many of these amazing movies, that's a good thing (we don't need a follow-up to the likes of The Shawshank Redemption or Schindler's List), but there exist some amazing movies that deserve sequels but have yet to receive them. Meanwhile some of the worst movies ever, like Twilight and Transformers, have had multiple sequels. In the hopes that something good comes out of the sequelverse, we've compiled this movies that deserve sequels list.

Films that need sequels are varied and include some cult classics (The Big Lebowski, Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas), some action favorites (True Lies, Independence Day), and some wild card movies (Dude, Where's My Car?, Kindergarten Cop). The common bond here, however, is these are all top movies that should have sequels and don't. 

What are the best movies without sequels? What films should have sequels? What movies have sequels in the works? This list of movies that need sequels will get you all riled up that there's a Smurfs 2 and an Air Bud 7, but no follow-up to your favorite movie. If the film you think should have a sequel isn't on the list, make sure to add it to the movies that ought to have sequels list.
