Great Sequels

April 26, 2017

Film Club Rule #805: It’s not always great to be #2, unless you’re making a great sequel.

Great sequels are not the norm. When a production company decides to return to a film’s universe, the reason is generally all about money. It can seem like a safe bet that if a film made money the first time, returning to those characters and themes will ensure a profit. The tendency is to discount sequels as inferior, but there are exceptions. This episode we look at what makes a great sequel, then we look at some of our favorites like: The Godfather Part 2, Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade, and Brian de Palma’s Hi Mom!.
