Series Ruining Sequels

Is it possible for a sequel to be so bad that it ruins the original film? Not really. I mean, if a movie is good enough it will stand on its own.

That doesn't mean that a sequel cant be so bad as to completely destroy the universe that the original resides in. No, that is all to possible.

This week we take a look at a few movies that do just that. Sequels that so spectacularly miss the point one has to wonder if the filmmakers even saw the original.


Also, our Summer Movie League is back. Just go to, create a studio and join the Film Thugs 2014 league. The winner wins stuff.

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 and we will read/play whatever you send us, or you can e-mail 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.
