Weekend of Summer Sequels and their diminishing returns / by Rollie Agado

When the dust settles tomorrow afternoon and Memorial Day Weekend 2011 is officially considered “over”…   I’m going to get to look back and say that I took in a lot of movies and live performance art.

Saw two sequels this afternoon…  an animated feature (Kung Fu Panda 2) that I had high expectations for and drunken hard “R” (Hangover 2) movie that had me second guessing the idea of giving it any opening weekend gross money.

Both were predictably bad… but the Hangover 2 had me cracking a smile every now and again.  Kung Fu Panda 2 however really shit the bed…  the movie was really just a vehicle for Jack Black to sorta go “Jack Black” and not in a good way.
