There was a part of me dreading watching the rest of The Return of the Living Dead movies after the second one, Return of the Living Dead: Part II. I mean, Part II was absolutely atrocious and you can fairly safely assume any following sequels are going to be worse. But Return of the Living Dead III was definitely better! It's not all that good, but it's still better than the second one!
I'm back with more Beethoven movies! Yes, the franchise with fewer films than Air Bud and Air Buddies (14) continues on with its first sequel. I imagine this was made because the first Beethoven made back 8 times its budget, and money talks. As we get further into the franchise I'm going to start assuming that "a desire for money" is the main motivator behind ideas like "Beethoven, but The Prince and the Pauper" or "Beethoven, but with Christmas magic." But those are future reviews; today we're going to talk about the one with an attempted sexual assault and a sexual abuser!
October of the Corn continues with Children of the Corn II: The Final Sacrifice, which is obviously not the final movie. It was a bad idea to use that word for Friday the 13th: The Final Chapter--the fourth film out of 10 (before reboots)--and it was a bad idea here. Sure, Children of the Corn III: Urban Harvest came out 3 years after this, but you had to know that creating a sequel 8 years after the original was going to open the door to countless sequels. Well, it's 7 sequels, a reboot, a sequel to that reboot, and a supposed preboot coming out next year... But still! Wait, where was I? The Final Sacrifice, right!
Let's mix things up a bit. I'm tired of reviewing The Mummy adjacent movies (Casper Van Dien and porn will do that to a person). And some personal information, I've been passing the time painting miniatures while I look out the window and watch society collapse. There's a board game called Batman: Gotham City Chronicles that has a truly ridiculous amount of plastic figures, and painting them up keeps me away from a life of crime. And while I've been painting these heroes and villains, I've been reading a lot of Batman comics. So let's talk about some Batman movies, and let me show off some of the models I've finished that are related to the review at hand. In today's post, very tangentially related.
