Have you been keeping up with my summer fun series posts? In my Summer Fun Part One I shared about how time flies and the movies we’ve been seeing. In Part Two I shared about seeing Taylor Swift’s 1989 World Tour. This week I’m talking about movie sequels!
Paul Blart Mall Cop 2
Last week, I wanted to be sure my son got involved in our dollar movie days. We went to see Paul Blart, Mall Cop 2. I am SO glad I only paid a dollar to see this…well, $3 if you count the kids’ tickets. This movie was just nothing like the first one. Remember how hilarious the first Mall Cop movie was? I’ve watched that one many times. This one was just not at all funny. The theater was pretty full and seriously no one was laughing. There may have been one or two instances that were chuckle worthy, but other than that it was a bomb.
It makes me quite sad when movie sequels don’t live up to the first movie! I think if you can’t make a good sequel, then leave it at one movie people! There ARE instances when the sequels of movies rock and are as good as or even better than the first movies. Star Wars The Empire Strikes Back is my favorite of all of the Star Wars movies. Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom is an awesome sequel, but the third and fourth are just okay. Of course, this does not apply to the Harry Potter movies because they are all based on different books and aren’t really sequels, and they are all amazing 🙂
So do you have any favorite movie sequels? How about ones that totally bombed? I would love to hear!
Update June 2018:
Wow, this was a long time ago! Thankfully, my photo skills have improved, but I’ve got to keep this here just for a reminder to myself of how far I’ve come! There have been lots of new Star Wars movies since I wrote this post! Have you seen them? We loved SOLO: A STAR WARS STORY! If you haven’t seen it yet, go while it’s still in the theatres! You can preorder it too.
