So it's been announced that Toy Story 4 will be released in 2017.

Here's hoping Pixar can break what I've come to call the Fourth Movie Curse: in short, fourth movies of a connected series always suck.

Some examples:

Die Hard, Die Hard 2 (Die Harder), Die Hard 3 (Die Hard With A Vengeance), Die Hard 4 (Live Free Or Die Hard) <-- sucks

Raiders of the Lost Ark, Indiana Jones and the Temple Of Doom, Indiana Jones And The Last Crusade, Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull <-- sucks

Alien, Aliens, Alien 3, Alien: Resurrection <-- sucks

Pirates of the Caribbean: Curse of the Black Pearl, Dead Man's Chest, At World's End, On Stranger Tides <-- sucks

The numbering itself doesn't matter. For example, Star Wars: 4, A New Hope; 5, Empire Strikes Back; 6, Return of the Jedi; 1, Phantom Menace <-- sucks hard

But wait, you say. Star Trek 4 was actually pretty good. True. However, Wrath Of Khan was not a sequel to Star Trek 1: The Motionless Picture; it tried to pretend the previous movie never happened, and it wasn't even called Star Trek 2 until they came out with Star Trek 3: The Search For Spock.

So: 2, Wrath Of Khan; 3, Search For Spock; 4, The Voyage Home; 5, The Final Frontier <-- sucks amazingly hard


Here's hoping Pixar has better luck.
