How many sequels are legitimate improvements over the movie they spawned from? Let’s face it, most are pointless exercises in redundancy and made to be straight up cash grabs. They typically lack whatever alchemy drew us to the original in the first place. Producers merely slap a big 2 on the title and call it a day, then count the receipts But every so often a sequel comes along that actually improves upon the first one in unexpected ways - bigger, better, stronger, faster… But finding a superior sequel is way harder than it sounds. The gauntlet was thrown this round as we each pick an arbitrary example of a Solid #2 that we think is superior to the first movie. Please note, only one Electric Boogaloo was harmed in the making of this podcast. | 0:00 - Intros | 4:23 - Enemy At The Gates: The Battle For Stalingrad (Craig, William 1974) | 9:56 - Ren Stimpy | 13:19 - The Boys (Amazon, 2019) | 17:41 - Spamilton (touring) | 22:05 - The Lion King (2019) vs Dora and the Lost City Of Gold (2019) | 29:45 - The Empire Strikes Back (1980) | 33:30 - The Godfather, Part II (1974) | 35:22 - Breakin’ 2: Electric Boogaloo (1984) | 37:20 - Star Trek II: The Wrath Of Khan (1982) | 47:50 - Mad Max 2: The Road Warrior (1981) | 50:00 - Austin Powers: The Spy Who Shagged Me (1999) | 58:10 - X2: X-Men United (2003) | Clips | Scratching The Itch - Sex Cult Girl | Shalamar - The Second Time Around | Kool the Gang - Fresh / clip from Bridesmaids / B-Side - Change the Beat | The Fallen of World War II (https://youtu.be/DwKPFT-RioU) | Die Screaming Leiderhôsens - Dog Pound Hop (Ren and Stimpy Theme Song) | Christopher Lennertz - Translucent Alive - The Boys (Music from the Amazon Original Series) | Original Cast Recording - Ben Franklin, Sondheim Lin-Manuel - Spamilton: An American Parody | Original Cast Recording - Aaron Burr, Sir, Nervous-er - Spamilton: An American Parody | John Debney Germaine Franco - Dora and the Lost City of Gold | Mentos Jingle / Outkast - So Fresh and So Clean / Devo - Fresh | Clip from Dora and the Lost City of Gold (Isabela Moner - Poo Hole Song) | John Williams London Symphony Orchestra - Han Solo and the Princess - Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back (Original Motion Picture Soundtrack) | Nino Rota Carlo Savina - Main Title (The Godfather Waltz) - The Godfather (Original Motion Picture Soundtrack) | Trailer for Breakin’ 2: Electric Boogaloo | Clip from Star Trek II: The Wrath Of Khan | Clip from Star Trek: The Motion Picture | James Horner - Main Title - Star Trek II: The Wrath Of Khan (Original Motion Picture Soundtrack) | Quincy Jones and His Orchestra - Soul Bossa Nova (Dim’s Space-A-Nova) - Austin Powers: The Spy Who Shagged Me (Music from the Motion Picture) | John Ottman - Suite From X2 - X2: X-Men United | James Horner London Symphony Orchestra - Bishop’s Countdown - Aliens (Original Motion Picture Soundtrack)
