Welcome to February's 28 Days Of Sequels! Every day throughout February one of our VIPers (Jenn, Susan Or Melanie) with occasional comments from the others will present a movie sequel complete with a trailer!
The big difference with this list is they aren't all winners that we loved. Some were disappointments and some just trainwrecks. Hollywood is short on original ideas so when one hits big, they milk it for all its worth and squeeze it dry. Sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn't.
Day 15 - Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen - Susan
I have been a Transformers fan since I was child, and loved the first movie getting to see the Autobots and the Decepticons, on the screen that wasn't a cartoon. Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen is the sequel in the Michael Bay franchise and brings us back into the Sam Witwicky's life. Sam is now a college student, has been seeing symbols after touching a smaller shard of the allspark in the first movie and making him a target for the Decepticons.
Michael Bay movies are known as big blockbuster events and this sequel is just that. It's one of the better movies of the franchise, though it could have been a lot better if someone other than Shia Lebeouf was the one leading the movie. I'm not his biggest fan or Megan Fox's, and could have watched the movie with just the Transformers in it. Although, the continuation with Mark Walberg was terrible so I think the casting was my main issue not matter who was in the movie!
Melanie - I never saw the movies but I used to watch the cartoon - does that count?
