Welcome to February's 28 Days Of Sequels! Every day throughout February one of our VIPers (Dave, Jenn, 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 22 - Graffiti Bridge (Mel)
I think pretty much everyone has heard of the movie Purple Rain - or at least is vaguely aware that the movie exists with it's iconic soundtrack but did you know there was a sequel? Not even an "unofficial sequel", Graffiti Bridge is the follow up story to Purple Rain. It's literally the what comes next.
Where Purple Rain received critical acclaim, Graffiti Bridge seemed to garner nothing but criticism and is often listed as one of the worst movies of the 90's. Personally I disagree. Although it doesn't deal with some of the more serious issues that Purple Rain incorporated, this to me, still felt very similar. The soundtrack is phenomenal (I included the Spotify listing below), and highly recommend "The Question of You", "Joy in Repetition", "Still Would Stand All Time", and of course probably the best known song from this album, "Thieves in the Temple".
People can say what they want to about Prince and all his eccentricities, but he had a presence on stage and screen that few can compare to. Even haters have to recognize that his Super Bowl performance is regarded as one of the best of all time. Even the heavens agreed, raining down to complete the Purple Rain performance.
If you have seen and enjoyed Purple Rain, I highly recommend the sequel. You can even stream if for free on Tubi right now!
