Sequel Vs. Sequel, Part 1: Movies

Ok so you like movies and you like video games. But how about sequels? Yea that's what I thought. But even though sequels don't have the greatest reputation in either industry, surely one of them does a better job with them. Right?

What tends to happen if a video game or movie becomes extremely successful while gaining critical acclaim and breaks records? A sequel is made to milk the ever-flowing cash cow! Come on now, could you really blame them? Sequels, though frequently lacking in the charm and originality of its predecessor (There are some exceptions out there but will get to those later), provide a new experience, no matter how bad or good it may be, whilst basking in the sun of familiarity. They're a mixed bag, therefore you never truly know what you'll get; will it be a total rehashing of the original? Will it try a new concept and completely ignore the original? and of course the most important question: Will it be good? It truly is an uphill battle for producers of both industries because they have to appeal to the fans of the original and also attract an entirely new audience. That's their key to success. But when it comes down to it, which industry tends to have a greater share of successful sequels that stand out from the lousy ones? Movies or Video Games?

Focusing on movies first, let's turn our attention first towards a trilogy belonging to one of the best franchises in cinematic history: "The Lord Of the Rings." It's very rare for a franchise to have one let alone two sequels that hold their own and even manage to surpass itself on each go-around. This was one of those moments. An epic tale of temptation and proving one's self, this trilogy brought us some of the most memorable characters and action sequences ever. Each sequel continues the epic quest and still manages to be its own movie by forming its own style,subplots, and intriguing characters. "Fellowship of the Ring" brought us close with all of our protagonists, forming a close bond with each and everyone. As an audience, we got what was just a mere glimpse of what was to come. "The Two Towers" gave us multiple story lines as the fellowship splits into different directions, forcing us to the edge of our seats with intense emotion and growing conflict. "Return of the King" acted as our epic conclusion, bringing all of the elements of the first two films and blending them into a definitive final battle that allowed us to finally see our heroes face that defining moment. This was and always will be pure cinematic mastery, folks. Each film gained Best Picture nominations with the final one winning its well deserved award. OK, so no one has to be told over and over on how amazing this trilogy was; it's common sense. But what about a franchise that has a great sequel that arguably surpasses the original but then completely falls flat on its final outing?

We get spider-man 3! Ugh. Superhero movies tend to be unpredictable, whether it's the first time one is on screen or if it's a continuation of one. The first two "Spider-Man' movies were campy, but were still fun in their own way with adrenaline-fueling confrontation with villains and great chemistry with the actors. Then comes along the third and final film, which featured the highly anticipated addition of the super-villain Venom; one of the best in comic book history. Then there was news that Sandman would be added. Well OK we get to see a lesser known villain on-screen. No Big deal. Then we found out that Harry Osbourne would act as another villain. It was understandable that at this point we were kind of skeptical on how this would play out. Would they all be able to have enough screen-time without overwhelming the film? Only way we would find out would be the day we finally saw it. It was not pretty. Everything we fear would happen did, indeed, happen. The villain we all were dying to see was short-changed by the soap opera-like drama consisting with Peter Parker dealing with change and a lackluster love triangle between him, Mary Jane, and his best friend Harry. Not to mention that Venom was a whiny punk and when we finally got to see the Venom we know and love come to life in what could have been the defining final battle between good and evil, only to be given a quick action scene that lacked everything we wanted. Well I guess you can't win them all, Spidey. Here's hoping that the upcoming reboot "Amazing Spider-Man" let's us forget this disaster.
