TOP 10: Movie sequels not worth making

By MICHAEL ANDERSON In honor of the 20th anniversary of the release of “Weekend at Bernie’s II,” a steaming pile of a sequel if ever there was one, I’ve compiled a list of movies that shouldn’t exist.

HOROSCOPE

By BETO HOYOS Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) It’s been a long time since you touched base back home. If you forget where you come from, you won’t get where you want to be. The answer to your problems may await you in the place where it all began. Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) You set the bar too high. Lower your expectations.  Not everyone is a utility player. Sometimes you need to just play your position. Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) Your character helps you out in awkward situations and your humor makes even bitter old men crack a smile. As seasons transition, however, so must you. Do something important to show people you’re not just a goofball. Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) You feel like taking off on a random adventure or road trip, but now is a bad time for that. Your work load shows no mercy. But fret not, the holidays will bring solace. Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20) You’ve come a long way, Pisces. Hard work and good looks keep you swimming right along. However, you’ve drifted away from those who care. Reach out to them. Aries (March 21-April 19) You’ve been stuck in a routine, and […]
