So, my article on when sequels go bad is in the can and I’m scratching my head, looking around the pop culture landscape, and looking for something to strike my fancy as a topic. Playing in the background, initially on to just drive my wife insane, is Phantom Troublemaker & Beau Brown's 37 hour epic podcast Masters of the Universe Classics 2015. Mixed in with toy line talk, why not to spit take on a touchscreen computer, how not to clean that spit take, and bad lunch choices; Phantom & Beau momentarily cover how Mortal Kombat was a solid, enjoyable movie while Mortal Kombat: Annihilation is a movie you should run screaming away from.
Oh, there’s my topic. We’ll start with those films, but we’ll hit some others along the way.
