Friday was brilliant.  I didn't even know there were sequels until recently.

No one's being oppressed here. If the studio thought it would make money, they'd do it. Obviously they don't.

Here's an exercise.  Name one sequel to a great comedy movie that didn't suck. Or even one that was as funny as the original. Christmas Vacation was pretty good but it didn't compare to the original.

And why can't Cube finance it himself? We're not talking an Avatar 2 budget here. Do another Anaconda movie, use the paycheck from that.

kudayta: Mugato: Name one sequel to a great comedy movie that didn't suck. Deadpool 2?


Is Deadpool a comedy or an action movie with comedic elements?

Okay, well my point still stands. You can't name very many comedy sequels that were worth anything.

Even good comedy movies sort of peeter out after the 45 minute mark. Office Space, brilliant until the actual heist, then it started losing steam. Blazing Saddles, genius. Then Mel Brooks lost his farking mind and broke the fark out of the fourth wall and it all went to shiat. Woody Allen....well all his movies sucked from the beginning. "Airplane!" was great, all the way through but the sequel just re-hatched all the original's jokes. But William Shatner was great, for his 15 minute role.

Well, he also thought Trump would help black people. Clearly not the brightest guy, and retreading the same jokes won't make them funnier.

I'm betting that WB doesn't think the profit will be worth the headaches of making it.  Plus, with Cube it could be a sequel where the international Jewish conspiracy is trying to take his weed

America watched as he fellated a syphilitic orange a few months ago soooo maybe Ben Shapiro will put him in something?

Beverly Hills Cop 2 was pretty good. But that was an action film with comedic elements.

The Pink Panther movies come to mind.

I'm still waiting for History of the World, Part 2 though.

Pink Panther and Shot In The Dark.

It's your call which one is the sequel, given that the first one filmed was released second. Both are uproarious.

Kevin Smith did it.

He also did "Tusk" which freaked out my girlfriend to the point that I thought she might need therapy. And this is a girl who I watched beat a mouse to death with a broom.

Have you seen the 3rd Friday film?

Wayne's World 2 is all I can think of and some people would probably disagree.

Anyway

Friday
Budget $24.5 million
Box office $121.5 million

Next Friday
Budget $11 million
Box office $59.8 million

Friday After Next
Budget $10 million
Box office $33.5 million


Aquaman
Budget $160-200 million
Box office $1.148 billion

Wonder Woman
Budget $120-150 million
Box office $822.3 million

The audiences want superhero trash they don't want a reboot of a 90ies stoner movie and if he really believed in the idea he could finance it himself.

No, I've only seen the first one, which I thought was excellent. I'm guessing I should avoid 2 and 3?

The closest I can think of is the second Austin  Powers movie, and maybe the jackass movies but they are clip shows more than movies.

But you're right.

Also they should make this Friday number 4 but throw out cube's script and just have Ice T  telling stories about how cube sucks. I'd watch that

So the idea is to show people using a legal substance to get high?  Because that's what people would be hankering for after a year at home?  It'd kinda be like Mickey Rourke wanting somebody to finance a bunch of "Barfly" sequels.  "Watch Henry and Wanda drink at home due to the pandemic...Frank Stallone comes by to visit and gets ornery."

That's bullshiat, if you believe in the project. As was said before, Kevin Smith made Clerks with his own money but now he whines that he can't get funding for Mallrats 2 or whatever he's trying to make. People seem to forget where they came from.
 
2021-02-28 8:21:34 PM  
Well, he can do what he wants with his $10 million.  If he's that sure that he's got a blockbuster.  I'm not that big a gambler, myself.  There's probably a very good reason why a studio doesn't want to finance it.

Deadpool 2?


Deadpool 2, Back to the Future 2, Finding Dory, Austin Powers 2.  All good, but definitely not as good as the first movies.

The 2nd of the new Jumanji series was AWESOME.  And even better than the 1st one (which itself was surprisingly good)

Toy Story 2.

Toy Story 3.

Toy Story 4.

I honestly can't really think of many other comedies that even had a second (Other than all the bad sequels to Jim Carrey comedy movies.  The Mask sequel.  Bruce Almighty Sequel.  Ace Ventura 2.  Dumb and Dumber 2.  He appeared in 50% of them.  All 4 were abysmal).

You should watch them. Not as funny as the fit, but there are laughs.

/but as far as 4, agree with the point that the laughs in 2 and 3 were mainly from people who are dead now

Huh?  Why is Cube wanting to make the 4th when they're already up to #13?

I'd rather have more Ice T 6 in the morning or Midnight type music than another Ice Cube movie.

I thought it was hilarious when I saw the 1st one. Years later, it was on TV one day when my buddies and I were on acid, we all got sucked into how terrible we thought it was that time around. It was still really fun.
