Things We Kind Of Like In The Garbage Trend Of ‘Requels’

List Rules
Vote up the things you love about all the reboot/sequels Hollywood keeps throwing at us.

Requels are an entirely new beast for filmgoers, and they have a whole set of rules that ensure they operate differently from a simple sequel. To make matters even more confusing, some of the movies that fall into this garbage trend are actually pretty good.

To be a requel, the film can't simply act as another entry in its franchise - it has to either undo some of the franchise (or just ignore it) while simultaneously attempting to jumpstart a new franchise.

An important part of requels is bringing in someone, or something, from the original film. Without that connective tissue, a requel just won't work.
