Trilogy III: Revenge Of The Return

I felt like having a rant about sequels, but it would probably just be an unimaginative and derivative cash-in reboot of a previous rant lacking the humorous charm and style of the original. Instead I recommend you head on over to Sci-Fi Songs, where John Anealio and Dale Case put this better than I ever could.
And yes, the poster is from a real film to be released this summer. What's the betting this one will have a shark in it? Still, beats Irish dancing...

Thank you Sofia! You are welcome here and I look forward to reviewing your first sci-fi blockbuster.

Trilogies are almost expected these days and ultimately pointless. What I find funny is what happens when they beat the horse well past its demise and go back to the well for the "prequels." Good song BTW

Whoa. Gene, guess what? I was away from blogging for awhile, and then I start up a new webserial blog, hit blogged.com and go back looking through some of my old contacts. I see” Sci-Fi Gene” shows up and I say to myself, “self, that guy was pretty cool, wonder what he’s blogging about.” Then BOOM! There’s the Titanic right on your blog! My new webserial blog begins with the Titanic as a setting! How weird is that? You may or may not remember me I used to go by 5ws1h or Isaac Newton. Anyway my new webserial is at http://yourhiatus.com/ btw – I still think you have a cool site. I think I’ll stay awhile and have a look around.

Maurice: I don't know what you mean. Jar-Jar Binks: Origin is shaping up to be the finest movie EVER.

5w1sh: great to hear from you again! As I liked the melancholy time traveller so much I'll forgive the link-drop and I look forward to your new writing.

I sow also the fake trailer of the sequel to Titanic 2 and also here, from my point of view this is proof I will say it again that we live in a world totally crazy!!!!

How could this happen ...? Who is it "genius" who was able to debit such silliness and how could so many producers, directors being „ able” to endorse the idea !!!???

I have appreciated very much a movie Titanic as production, reliability and professionalism with which mega was achieved, even romantic story of Jack and Rose seemed really cool (I sow this movie almoust 20 times or more I think) but wait ...now are comming with this fake trailer, throwing to hell my first impression about Titanic...and just because now they have found Jack into an ice cube. And more of that .Still Living?!!!! =)))
It’s ridiculous. C’mon, I see dead dead dead people! =))
