Summer of the Sequels

by Moe - 0 Comment(s)

This summer every film seems to have the number two behind it—or three, or is a sequel, prequel or some such thing. Currently in the theatres we have Despicable Me 2, Red 2, Smurfs 2, Grown-Ups 2, Iron Man 3, Kick A** 2, Percy Jackson: Sea of Monsters and Wolverine. Now if you remember the original story line and don't need catching up, just head off to the theatres. But if you want a refresher here are the links to the originals.

Despicable Me (I love this movie-fun for the whole family), Red (big big cast,, suspend logic and just enjoy—especially Malkovich), Smurfs, Grown-Ups (they aren't really), Iron Man 1, 2 (Robert Downey at his best), Kick A** (a different kind of Super hero Movie), Percy Jackson: Lightning Thief (the best Medusa ever), X-Men 1, 2, and 3 and X Men Origins-Wolverine.

 

 

Now as somebody who never needs encouragement to re-watch something I enjoy, I found this fact from a recent Ipsos poll very interesting: The average Canadian parent has seen their children's favourite movie about 33 times. And while I can rewatch Casablanca, Bridge on the River Kwai and To Kill a Mockingbird over and over, I blanche at the thought of how many times I sat through a taped Cirque de Soleil special with my daughter to watch the same clown climb out of the same box to get the same pie in his face. As I recall though it was very funny—at least the first 33 times!

From the same poll; with its release right around the corner, 27% of Canadians would most want to be in 'The Smurfs 2' if they woke up and found themselves to be an animated character.
