Perhaps one of the least recognized tools in the author’s bag of tricks is random connectivity, where events unfold in a way that logically leads to one another so that the audience can’t follow the plot. It’s easier to understand “I was thirsty so I drank some water” than “I was thirsty and I killed a man”.
To that end, there have been quite a few movie sequels that arguably could have benefited from dangling with casual connectivity, or perhaps that’s exactly what the willful ignorance of such sequels made work. So, inspired by the Sharknado franchises, movie fans have taken on the task of naming the sequels that have gone for mayhem.
A user suggested the iron choice of Return to Ozthe psychologically macabre 1939 sequel to The Wizard of Oz, which had an absolute field day with not only our expectations but our night terrors abilities.
Another responder did the dirty work, confirming that the most popular movie franchise of all time has mastered the art of spitting on casual connectivity. In fact, for most viewers, it doesn’t get any more off track than that Fast & Furious Franchise.
It didn’t last long at Pixar cars Franchise to run wild, either.
But perhaps the most tragic casualty of that neglect is the rambo Franchise. What was once one of the most effective anti-war narratives of modern times quickly gave way to the trigger-happy death machine of the man we now associate the name with.
So the next time you’re complaining that Hollywood is running out of ideas, take a moment to consider what happens when that statement is both objectively true and recklessly unacknowledged. At this rate, it won’t be long before dinosaurs come into the world Fast & Furious Mix.
