This week we had so many things to bring to the table we barely managed to do Road House, our featured film. Table time covered Luther, Misfits, Cirque Du Freak: The Vampire’s Assistant, 1,000 Ways to Die and Mad Men. Question Time looks at Prequels and the pointlessness thereof.

    Good job, guys. Though I still haven’t managed to see Roadhouse. From the sounds of your review you think it’s ridiculous and sort of bad… but it’s kind of good despite this? All sounds very confusing!

    Couldn’t agree more on prequels. I think they are redundant for a variety of reasons not least for the fact that a story (ideally in today’s cinema) follows a character’s arc from A to B. At the end of which the character is forever changed and will never be the same. Tracing a character’s origins, while interesting in principle, is robbed of stakes (we know they will succeed/fail) and can’t but lead us to the real ‘starting point’ of the original. Sequels can be terrible because they just retread the original arc or, worse still, have no arc at all.

    Alright enough faffle and on with a question;

    What is your favourite sequel and what would you like to see a sequel to? (and what would it be about?)
