Long Delayed Sequels Part 2: Finally the topic!

This week we finally decided to get down to business and talk about what we said we were going to talk about last week. In retrospect it only seems appropriate considering the topic.

Normally, filmmakers jump on the sequel train right away. If a movie performs it is always best to strike while the iron is hot, right?

Well, not always.
This week we discuss the sequels that took their sweet time. Some took a decade, some took nearly sixty years, but they all happened.
So, join us as we discuss everything from the amazing character and story driven masterpieces to the embarrassing cash grabs that ignore the point of the original so much that the word "sequel" only applies to the name.

Looks like Summer Movie League has officially become Fantasy Movie League.
It looks quite fun. Here's how it works.
You have an 8 screen theater.
Every week you pick movies and have a budget/salary cap you have to stay under.
Then you compete against other theaters in your league.
It's fantasy football for movie people.

Our league is Film Thugs 2015 and the password is Porterhouse.

And remember, you can be a part of the show any time you wild like. How's that? All you have to do is call or e-mail us. If you live in the US, or any place that makes calling the US easy, just dial 512-666-RANT and leave us a voicemail. We will read the Google Voice transcript and play your message. It's both funny AND informative.

If you live outside the US you can call us on Skype at The_Film_Thugs. You can leave a message, or someone might actually answer.

E-mail us at thefilmthugs@gmail.com and we will read/play whatever you send us, or you can e-mail thugquestions@gmail.com to be part of  an upcoming "Ask the Film Thugs" show, where we answer questions on any subject without having heard them first.

Also, we are on twitter @thefilmthugs and on Facebook and Vine.

You can also click on one of our sponsor links below and THEY will pay us. That's right. You won't have to pay a PENNY extra, and Amazon/Onnit/Teefury will give us a little taste.

Also, be sure to check back often for our new endeavor The Life Masters, where we answer questions to other advice columnists.

Thanks for listening, and until next week...
