Sequel

A Better Tomorrow 2 and The Mummy Returns between them just about make the ultimate sequel. Not best, I did not say best, I said ultimate.

Think about it, together they have just about all the hallmarks.

Added a kid (and a SASSY kid at that)
Twin brother of the popular character who died in the last movie
Newly contrived backstory
Everybody lived together in a past life
Characters who shouldn’t return do it anyway
More action
I said MORE ACTION!
And you’ve got the ever dreaded “expanded the mythology” option in there too.

The only thing they don’t do is set up for a third installment. Both movies had third installments, but neither actually set them up.

Also, watch this and then read this. Comedy gold.

Problems

The problem with being a good thinker is that quite often, the music simply can’t get loud enough to drown out the thoughts.

Spirit Notes

Each line represents an instance of me getting up from the couch, walking to my office, typing a line and then returning.

~~~~~~~~~~

Does Danny Elfman know that David Newman swiped the Batman music for this movie?

~~~~~~~~~~~~

Wait, does this fight take place in a lake, a pond, mud flat, a tar pit, or what?

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

I actually laughed out loud at the line “C’mon! Toilets are always funny.”

~~~~~~~~~~

Wow, even the cat thought his flash-backed story was dull and left.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

How many times are we going to say that the foot/head thing is just plain damn weird?

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

This MUST be camp, it has to be meant as camp. You can’t make a movie this bad on accident, he must have meant to do it.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Okay Frank, I get it, you hves a hard on for the Greeks. You don’t have to involve it in everything you do though.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Wow, that was bad in so many ways.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

It’s actually not a terrible movie, it’s just not very good. If you watch it as a piece of screwball camp, it’s pretty effective. Not as bad as anyone was saying, but not good enough to put on my top 100 or anything.

Oooooh boy!

So, my dad bought The Spirit right? He wanted to see what it was like and was willing to pay. I wasn’t willing to pay, but I am curious (blue) so I borrowed it from him.

I got 4 minutes and 57 seconds before I had to stop and walk away for a moment to come tell you fine people about it.

Oooooh boy! Did I already say that? I’ll say it again. Oooooh boy!

What I heard is true.
If this were a comic book it would be seen as an interesting Sin City-fied version of Wil Eisner’s character. It’s like Dwight was cast in the role of Denny. I mean they’ve got him wearing Chucks and everything. Not five minutes in and I’m not sure I can take it.

I’ll try though, I’ll watch the whole thing. Those men still in bad holding their manhood cheaply and all that.

Tomato Harvester

I once took a photo of a sign that said “Tomato Harvester” but I didn’t take a shot of the machine. A young lady said she’d never actually seen a harvester of tomatoes, so I decided to get some better shots of it…
