There were a few topics that I was considering for the letter S, but none of them were that exciting. I considered talking about shooting/guns (oooh, controversy!) or a little about the school that I'm doing, since I never really talk much about it. There were a few other topics that I usually thought of when something happened (which I can't remember right now, of course) but then I was watching TV with Momma one night and suddenly had an idea.
I am all for creating movie and book sequels. Well, as long as the story is good. Some stories just need to be ended. Like, I would love for there to be another Harry Potter or Lion King but I do not want there to be another Twilight or Friday The 13th.
If you're one of the few people who hasn't read or watched Twilight, my friend Ashley did a summery of the books in a blog post. It will take you less than two minutes to read and it will tell you everything you need to know. Click here.
Friday The 13th... I can understand the original movie. Kid dies in a lake because his councilors are too busy having sex to watch him. Kid comes back to haunt the councilors at the camp after that because he died. That's a pretty basic scary movie plot. Then you get to the thirty sequels.
Why would anyone go back to the lake after teenagers are getting murdered there constantly? Like, obviously teens are going there and never returning. In the second one, they even said that the bodies were found the year before. Clearly, something is wrong, but for the next billion movies, everyone goes back to the camp because it just can't possibly be true!
I just spent twenty minutes on Google looking for a quote from NCIS. One of the characters (Abby) tried to explain the Friday the 13th movies to another character (Gibbs) and it was just the perfect way to prove my point. But I can't find the stupid quote. I tried though.
Back to my point.
There are some things, which do not need to have a bunch of stories made after them. There never should have been a second Pocahontas movie or two more Cinderella movies. (I know. You're all in shock because I'm obsessed with Disney.) There doesn't need to be another Steel Magnolias (I told Mom to name a movie. It was that or Top Gun.)
We get it. You made a shitton of money with the first movie. Good for you. That does not mean you need to make a sequel and a sequel for that sequel because sometimes, the story line is just done. It's time to move on and just admire the movie/book that was so successful, without wearing it down and making it the most predictable thing ever.
