I don't think I've been this excited about a sequel since The Force Awakens.

I tried to find a Matrix thread, but couldn't.

The first 45 minutes of Matrix 4 hit all my soft spots. I'd have watched a whole movie of Neo figuring out if he even wanted to be unplugged again. All the meta, "is this sequel really necessary" shit was kind of fun. Then Neo got unplugged and I lost interest. It as just "Hey Lana, can you play the hits... badly?" The production value felt weirdly cheap, like i was watching a SyFy original that ran out of money, so the producer had to blow some rich coke-head to get the rest of the cash. We think of the original Matrix as some CGI masterpiece, but if you watch it now, you realize how much it is just old fashion camera and practical effects. Matrix 4 felt like it was, er, a fake reality made in a computer.

I don't know if it's the most meaningless and unnecessary sequel ever made, but it's certainly needs to be in the conversation.

What I found odd (and amusing) is that the whole point of the movie is that it's the most meaningless and unnecessary sequel ever made. That carries all the way through to the post credits sequence.

My sister was obsessed with Top Gun the summer it came out on VHS. (1987? '88? It all moved slower back then.) We watched it at least once a week that summer. Kelley McGinnis's legs woke up something in me.

The theme song alone on this fills me with a warm nostalgia. This looks like a straight up soft reboot a'la The Force Awakens, but if the young bucks are half as much fun as Goose, Iceman, and the rest, it'll be a nice ride.

I know Nacho wants to see a sequel to Dog Soldiers . . .

Neil Marshall's Dog Soldiers is still part part of the horror conversation almost ten years after its' release, so it makes sense that Dog Soldiers 2 is something of a long awaited project.

While Dog Soldiers 2 is still in pre-production, its producers at Kismet Entertainment have started rolling on the Dog Soldiers: Legacy web series while they get warmed (and to get you warmed up) up for their feature. Today we have the first installment in the web series, Red, along with some stills from the shoot!

The Dog Soldiers: Red trailer" brings back a sense of the unique werewolf style that we have all come to love from the original 'Dog Soldiers' film... Based on a modern-day version of “Little Red Riding Hood”, multiple members of Allen’s family took part in the Ryan Lightbourn-directed trailer including his grandmother Pat “Nan” Allen who plays the awaiting grandma and his sister Emmy Allen who portrays “Red”.... Kismet Entertainment is also in the early stages of pre-production for the first sequel to the 2002 cult hit 'Dog Soldiers'.

Sequels we didn't love to see! (I'm just wasting time today...)

Star Trek V is never given an inch, is it?
