Surprise, surprise. The summer blockbuster season this year will come with several sequels. At least one of the movies featured in today’s trailers clearly should have never been made or even conceived in the first place.
The Hangover Part 3
Someone should burn the existence of these movies from the face of the Earth and never allow Todd Phillips to work in Hollywood ever again. As if the last sequel wasn’t idiotic enough, this third ‘Hangover’ entry promises to be even worse. And don’t give me any bull about being the final conclusion to some pre-planned trilogy! It’s clear that the filmmakers are making up this shit while sitting on the toilet, scribbling away on the toilet paper and laughing while enjoying their own stench. Gawd, this looks awful!
Fast & Furious 6
I can’t believe that I’m actually suggesting this, but the trailer for the sixth installment in the ‘Fast & Furious’ franchise looks to be a hell of a lot better than the previous one. What really surprises me about the entire series is how the filmmakers find so many different and somewhat clever ways to devise premises made almost entirely of fast cars, half-naked women and tons of over-the-top action. I wouldn’t say that I’m a fan, but I can kind-of enjoy the movies for their mindless, popcorn entertainment.
Finally, we have the much anticipated and long-awaited sequel to 2010’s surprise sleeper hit ‘Kick-Ass. And it looks awesome! The preview gives the impression of a bit more melodrama, which is fine so long as it’s balanced with deadpan humor and tons of action. The new movie features a whole host of new wannabe superheroes joining our once-lonely duo. Other than catching up with Chloe Moretz’s Hit-Girl, Christopher Mintz-Plasse’s Red Mist (who’s come up with a wonderfully absurd moniker) and Aaron Taylor Johnson’s title character, the latest addition is Jim Carrey as a more mentally-disturbed version of the Comedian from the ‘Watchmen’ universe. I can’t wait!
