And the most unnecessary sequel of 2013 IS…

March 24, 2013

300: Rise of an Empire AND Texas Chainsaw 3D!

Unless I’m mistaken, I’m pretty sure this is the very first time we’ve had a tie in one of these here polls, and I certainly can’t think of a more fitting occasion. Then again, 300 really left a lot of things unsaid, and boy, if isn’t high time Leatherface transitioned over to the third dimension.

Right, guys?

Can I get an “Amen?”


Serenity now, folks. The things we have to put up with in this industry…

At any rate, mighty swell voting all around! Be strong, boys and girls, we’ll get through this together.

300: Rise of an Empire: 7 votes
Texas Chainsaw 3D: 7 votes
The Hangover: Part III: 6 votes
The Last Exorcism 2: 5 votes (the writing’s on the wall with a title like that)
The Smurfs 2: 5 votes (kind of surprised that this didn’t win by a mile)
Paranormal Activity 5: 4 votes
Grown Ups 2: 4 votes (nevermind, this should have won by a mile)
Scary Movie 5: 3 votes
Red 2: 3 votes
Monsters University: 2 votes (does it bum anyone else out that Pixar is now a part of this conversation?)
Fast and Furious 6: 1 vote
Insidious: Chapter 2: 1 vote
Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs 2: 0 votes
Despicable Me 2: 0 votes
G.I. Joe: Retaliation: 0 votes (color me surprised)
Riddick: 0 votes (like I said)
Ghostbusters 3: 1 write-in vote (is that actually happening now?)
– “All of them”: 2 write-in votes
– “All of the above”: 1 write-in vote
– “Jesus Christ, every single one”: 1 write-in vote (preaching to the choir, homey)

And apologies for the lack of reviews around these parts as of late, but what can I say, there just hasn’t been a single movie worth spending my time or money on in over a month now. Luckily, all that’s starting to change, so stay tuned this week at the same Bat time, same Bat channel as things get back to their normal routine. Y’all are troopers.

    300: Rise of an Empire just seems like a weird one to do, but I will wait until I see a trailer 😀

    Wait, what’s wrong with 300 or Monster’s Inc getting sequels? Those were both good movies.

      Well the ending to 300 wasn’t exactly begging for a sequel now, was it, buddy? Good movie though, and the same goes for Monsters Inc. Can’t help but feel like Pixar is starting to just make sequels for the sake of making sequels though, mainly because of Cars 2 (of all the Pixar movies to make a sequel of…).

      Idk, I feel like with the exception of the Toy Story movies (maybe the best movie trilogy ever?) Pixar stood out from the pack by not making sequel after sequel like other animation studios would just to turn a profit. Each new movie was a new story with new characters that was often even better than their last effort. Now, I’m starting to get skeptical. Really hoping Monsters University proves me wrong, but Monsters Inc is a hard one to top.
