GOOD SEQUEL BAD SEQUEL



Sequels, Part twos, follow-ups, these are the films that viewers go to for more of the same. Some are the second half of the preceding movie, Godfather 2 for instance, some expand on the original, some do little more than reference the parent film. There is always great debate as to the value of the sequel yet we are drawn to them. When the first movie is of high quality it makes the sequel a poison chalice

  1. Actually agree with all your choices except one....I really like THE TWO JAKES. Not up to CHINATOWN but I liked it enough to buy it. But can you trust my judgement as I recently bought the '77 KING KONG and its sequel!!!
