It's MCW. Started by Boxer a while back, I've been the caretaker of this gig for a week or three now. Most of you know how it works but if you're new here (for which I greatly thank you) here's how it works. A theme is picked each week. You choose a movie to fit the theme and find a clip, preferably three minutes or less, and post it on your blog. Announce in the comment section of this post that you are up and we'll come and pay you a visit. It's simple really. If you are looking for the theme it's usually posted under the MCW banner on the right side of my drivel by Thursday
This was a hard one. So many shitty sequels. I guess one of the rules is that the first movie had to be at least decent. If it wasn't, what would you have to compare it to. Caddyshack 2, Teen Wolf 2, Blues Brothers 2000, Godfather 3 (how could the best sequel have one of the worst. Anyway, I'm late for pool league and when I chose this topic the movie that first came to my mind was Another 48 Hours. So disappointing on so many levels. First, no Annette O'Toole. She didn't get near enough screen time in the first one and none in the second. A travesty of epic proportions. Don't think so? Ask men if they are enough hot redheads in the world and the answer will be a resounding "NO". The defense rests. The ridiculous story line, the shitty motorbike scene, the 1/2 shoot out "all the windows everywhere" scene. I hated all of it. I guess when it comes to bad sequels, you're anticipation for wanting to see it combined with your disappointment once you do is the biggest factor. It's kind of like giving an girlfriend a second chance. You had some good times the last time, it didn't work out the way you wanted but good memories so you get back together and it's a disaster. Kind of like that. Not saying that's ever happened to me but I've seen some things. Happy MCW.
