Sequels I Pretend Don’t Exist

Posted on 30 September 2011 by Charles B. French

For my first column, I’d like to talk about sequels. I like sequels. When done right (Spiderman 2) they can expand upon the universe, explore the characters in greater depth than the original allowed, and resolve dangling plot threads from the previous film. When not done well, and sadly this is often the case, they not only are a terrible movie, they retroactively ruin the previous film. (On the plus side, they do allow a lot of actors to pay back what I assume are massive gambling debts.)

Thus, to preserve my sanity and continued enjoyment of the first installment(s), there are sequels I just pretend don’t exist. As far as I’m concerned, these movies were never green-lighted, scripted, cast, financed, catered, filmed, produced, and released. They didn’t happen, and a pox on anyone who tries to shatter my precious illusion. (And yes, I am aware of the irony that writing about movies I pretend don’t exist violates my own rule. I’m sure we can move past it.)

I like this move. There’s no reason to keep telling the same story over and over again just to make money. Here’s an excerpt from Stallones recent interview from empire online.

I think Rambo

Dallas Remake Coming to Television?

Posted on 06 October 2010 by Christian

Hollywood has been cashing in on remakes and sequels in recent years, and now television is getting into the act. In addition to the news that Wonder Woman is returning to television comes the rumor that a Dallas remake is underway as well. Sources say Kiefer Sutherland is being approached for the lead, but former cast members such as Larry Hagman, Patrick Duffy, and Linda Gray may be reprising their roles in the new show. Jennifer Love Hewitt and Josh Holloway are possibilities for the younger generation
