Ah, the elusive allure of sequels. What makes you want to revisit a movie universe? What has you leaping to your feet during the credits hoping that the gang will get back together for a second outing? What makes you forcefully cringe when news of a number two breaks? This week on the show, Geoff and I attempt to answer that question while offering a few movies that have the potential for incredible sequels. Like The Incredibles sequel.
Plus, we’ll look to a mysterious story about a potentially fake Twitter feed to examine how much truth we demand in our emotional response, and we’ll dissect movies with outdated teach (28.8 kbps modem!) while puzzling over films that wouldn’t even be possible today because of powerful tech advancements. Somehow along the way, Moore’s Law meets Rule 34.
