Twocommercials came on back to back, and each of them inspired a “Why?”
1. Why did we have THREE “Mummy” movies?
2. Why did we have two “The Starter Wife” seasons?
I guess they are each examples of how there’s something for everybody. Yet, this brought me to another thought: why do they always fuck up the three-quel? X-Men, Spiderman, The Matrix. The only movie that I can think of that did NOT crap out in the third movie was the “Lord of the Rings” trilogy. In actuality, the same can be said for “Harry Potter.” However, since the two had good raw material to draw from, do they count?
A friend has a theory, “Things typically end badly, or else, they would not end at all.” I’m just don’t quite understand the point in creating something, dare I say, a masterpiece, then adding onto it until it runs into the ground.
I’m a huge fan of superhero movies (NERD ALERT!) so to have Peter Parker dancing a la “Chicago” in “Spiderman 3”, or denying Scott Summers a respectable death scene in “X Men 3”, as follow up to each movie’s PHENOMENAL sequel is tantamount to da Vinci redoing “The Last Supper,” but adding ribs. Just because it seems like a good idea, and maybe would be great ANYWHERE else, that doesn’t mean it will automatically fit in that context.
Just a thought. I should really be sleeping anyway.
