Looking at Fionna and Cake, Indy 5, and the rising presence of 'requels' across media
Well said! I can understand what you mean, I think you make a great point. Hope to see you at Thought Bubble at a future year!
When it comes to nostalgia spiked franchises, I still think that Creed did it the best. I like all three Creed movies, but I really love the first one. The way it used Rocky's character and also was it's own thing with Adonis' own story.
>I genuinely feel as though he would have been left better at the end of Last Crusade riding off into the sunset. And it has nothing to do with the story itself, again, which I think was relatively strong in a lot of places.
Yeah but I wonder why the Greeks felt compelled to show that Heracles and Theseus had HORRIBLE lives after they got the girl and settled down (and usually because the girl was a horrible child killing cannibal or something.) Sometimes we need to see the end of the story. Same thing with Cuchullain and a few others. I liked having Indy's story have total closure...and no cannibalism.
There's definitely a balance to strike that Batman Beyond, or the Breaking Bad follow-ups, did perfectly.
You don't want to have change for the sake of change, but you also don't want it to just be meaningless callbacks. Most properties are going too far in either of these directions nowadays.
I still haven't seen the Fraiser reboot/sequel, but I've heard good things there too.
This is a very timely subject for me rn! Good read.
