This league assignment is subtitled “the one that doesn’t involve collecting humans.”
Allowed back for the third installment of the series, this week Cool & Collected asks: The 80s and 90s were filled with kids and teens in the movies. Which movie would you like to see a sequel made in 2012 with the original cast members, who have aged the same as you and me.
This might get me kicked out of the league, but I’m turning the premise around. Instead of looking back with nostalgia, let’s look ahead with hunger.
Yes, I know there is talk of a sequel, but here me out. Imagine, if you will, that it becomes a one-off movie. Twenty-two years down the road, Hit Girl is 34 years old. Perhaps she’s a cop like her dad (and adopted father), maybe she’s hung up the guns and the cape, or maybe she’s a mess, the realization of what’s she done catching up with her. Kick Ass is 40 years old. Perhaps the last adventure was the last adventure and he does settle down with his high school sweetheart, raising a couple of kids and finding himself behind a desk reliving past glories in his head. Or he’s been unmasked and forced undercover to protect himself and those around him. And Red Mist? Has the now 40 year old has consolidated his hold on the New York Crime families? Or been dethroned and seeking vengeance against all comers?
And some catalyst to bring them together, as allies or adversaries, anew.
Now that’s a movie worth waiting for. Because the sequel of any movie that makes Nicolas Cage this cool is worth waiting for.
- To come….
