Long Time Coming

Well, back to workMy latest MSN movie gallery uses the arrival of “The Boondock Saints II: All Saints Day” to roll through a few other sequels that took, like, forever to arrive.

I believe the quarter-century between “The Hustler” and “The Color of Money” makes for the biggest gap, though there’s probably another pair with even more space between them. Did I miss anything else?

I mean, besides “Before Sunset” — which is impossible to discuss without ruining “Before Sunrise” for anyone who hasn’t seen that film — and “Son of the Mask”, which is best left buried in the shallow grave of the discount DVD bins?

  1. Forget V’ger and Khaaaaaaan; I’m hoping Abrams taps John DeLancie on the shoulder to bring Q into the next Trek.

  2. @ Josh — best ignored? But yeah, I probably should have squeezed them in. I have a modest appreciation for “The Two Jakes”, after all; it doesn’t work, but it doesn’t work in a melancholy, intriguing sort of way, so there’s that.

  3. @ Norm, the gallery didn’t seem to be restricted to *good* sequels that came years later. Otherwise, how would Basic Instinct 2 get on there?

    Anyway, I ran across another one on TV yesterday: An American Werewolf in Paris. Remember that one? Yeah, there’s a good reason why you purged it from memory. 🙂
