2 Newbs and a Burger: Episode 12 (Shame Songs II)

Technically, we say that this is episode 11 in the intro, but it’s actually episode 12. We celebrated that mistake by discussing music that we should be ashamed to listen to. Isaac brought up Taylor Swift, John brought up Simple Plan, and Chris brought up S.O.D. It was definitely a strange mix.

randyquaid

This week, we have a full house to discuss the worst movie sequels of all time. This was a long and partially drunken conversation, but we found a way to create a good list. In addition, we also made a very important bet. We guessed the Rotten Tomatoes rating for the upcoming Independence Day sequel. Closest person to both the critic and fan ratings gets the opportunity to make the other hosts watch a truly terrible movie. So, here are the list and the ratings.

Top Five Worst Sequels (Theatrical Release Only)

  1. Ocean’s Twelve
  2. Boondock Saints II: All Saints Day
  3. M:I:II
  4. Blues Brothers 2000
  5. Matrix Reloaded
  6. Independence Day 2: Resurgence (Honorable Mention)

 

Rotten Tomato Predictions for Independence Day 2

John – 25%

Chris – 12 %

Isaac – 13%

Andrew – 17% 

Critic Rating for Independence Day 2

Chris – 23%

John – 29%

Andrew – 31%

Isaac – 25%

2 Newbs and a Burger: Episode 8 (Sequels)

Hellboy

This week’s top five was extremely difficult to figure out. Isaac, John, Chris, and Andrew all love movies, but they have vastly different opinions. These opinions came into play when they tried to figure out the Top Five sequels in movie history.

For the rules: the sequels had to be direct sequels, they had to be better than the originals, and they had to be a continuing story. So, James Bond and Indiana Jones didn’t count.

  1. Empire Strikes Back
  2. Aliens
  3. The Dark Knight
  4. Terminator 2
  5. Army of Darkness
