Reverse Sequels

Reverse Sequels is a podcast where two bad movie aficionados watch the sequel to a movie they've never seen and try to figure out what the original was all about.

Smokey and the Bandit 2

Turd Furguson and the Flying Nun are on the run from a Cajun Nazi sheriff. There’s also a man named Cledus, a pregnant elephant and her Italian gynecologist, and the Pittsburgh Steelers. So grab your shortest shorts and join us for Smokey and the Bandit 2!

Red 2 Part 2 (Red)

Bruce Willis is retired, extremely dangerous and this movie is a giant piece of spy homage international thriller where a ton of great actors are wasted on a mediocre plot. Helen Mirren kicks ass though. So switch out your heels for combat boots and join us for Red!

Red 2

It’s an overly elaborate case of spy versus spy versus spy versus spy. It’s also a love story between a woman who thirsts for adventure and a retired CIA agent. It is also somehow about a misplaced Russian nuke that is going to be detonated in London by Sir Anthony Hopkins. If you have a lot of questions so did we! So grab your paper crane and join us as we discuss Red 2!


Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again Part 2 (Mamma Mia!)

Mamma Mia this movie has a lot of plot holes! This is a movie that makes it’s sequel completely nonsensical. None of the ages, dates, or relationships match up but if you don’t care about any of that and just want to see a lot of very unlikable characters (except for Harry, Harry is the best) singing some great and some forgettable ABBA songs then maybe you would like this movie. So grab your mom’s sex diary and join us for Mamma Mia!

Mamma Mia: Here We Go Again

In a Reverse Sequels first we are doing the sequel to a musical. And this movie has everything you could want in a classic musical - no plot, the songs of a Swedish 70s pop group, and a young Meryl Streep having lots of unprotected sex with strangers. So grab your Napoleon costumes and join us as we discuss Mamma Mia: Here We Go Again!

Fright Night 2 Part 2

“To what do I owe this dubious pleasure” - Two Reverse Sequels episodes in one week! We dive deeper into the world of vampires exploring their lurid sexual lives, love of dance, and personal finance. Grab a piece of fruit and join us for what we got right, what we got wrong and what we could have never predicted with Fright Night!

Fright Night 2

We know what vampires hate - crosses, garlic, sunlight. But what about things vampires love? Rollerskating, interpretive dance, bowling. At least that’s what they are all about in the 1980s in this movie. So grab your organic pizza and a cigarette and join us for Fright Night 2!

The Purge: Anarchy Part 2 (The Purge)

This is a movie that asks some profound moral questions about utilitarian ethics while still featuring plenty of great bloody murder. It also causes you to yell at the screen things like - “Why won’t you all just stay in the same room!?”; “Why did you let that guy in?!” and “Why are you getting up to murder your girlfriend’s dad right before you are about to have sex with her!?” So bake some cookies for your neighbors and hunker in for the night with the Purge!

The Purge: Anarchy

In a future world where all crimes are legal including murder but for some reason excluding using explosives - the real crime is that we never saw these movies earlier! Grab your bear traps and barricade busters and join us as we talk about the Purge: Anarchy!

xXx: Return of Xander Cage Part 3 (xXx)

Picture this: a tight 90 minute, fast-paced action film starring Vin Diesel, a young Anna Nicole Smith, and Tim Robbins. Factor in some BMX stunts, missile riding, death-faking, and tattoo origin stories. None of those predictions came true in this movie but join us anyway and discuss what we got right and what we could have never predicted with xXx!


xXx: Return of Xander Cage

Ellie: Podcaster, Guinness Book of World Record Holder, Favorite Karaoke Song: Zombie by the Cranberries.

Patrick: Podcaster, Occasional Pirate, Never Broken a Bone, World's Number One Steven Seagal fan

Both: lovers of the classic Vin Diesel Sequel. Join us as we discuss xXx: The Return of Xander Cage!

Now You See Me 2 Part 2 (Now You See Me)

Want to see an all star cast magically make a decent plot line disappear? Want to see Common get hypnotized? Want to see Conan O’Brien appear out of thin air? Fake your death for no reason and join us as we examine what we got right, what we got wrong, and what we could have never predicted with the original Now You See Me.


Now You See Me 2

Poof! Jesse Eisenberg Poof! Mark Ruffalo Poof! Morgan Freeman Poof! Daniel Radcliff Poof! Michael Caine. If you want a movie that has as many celebrities as plot lines and sleight of hand then this is for you. If you want a movie that is about using magic to take down evil corporations then this is for you. If you want to see Woody Harrelson as his own twin, let’s be real who doesn’t want to see that? Grab your Ace of Spades and join us as we discuss Now You See Me 2.

Paddington 2 Part 2 (Paddington)

This is a movie about a cute talking bear who goes to London and gets adopted by a quirky but loving family. It's also a movie about British imperialism, racism, murder, war orphans, and escaping the Holocaust. As we have learned this is one fucked up family franchise. So put a marmalade sandwich under your dead uncle's hat and join us for Paddington!

Paddington 2

This movie is like the TV show Oz except with a talking bear making marmalade sandwiches instead of a Nazi assaulting people in the showers. If that sounds disturbing that's because this children's movie is deeply dark and unsettling. So grab your pop up books and join us for Paddington 2!

The Raid 2 Part 2 (The Raid)

Have you even wondered what it would look like to see a man’s face impaled on a door frame? Do you want to see an amazingly choreographed two-on-one martial arts scene where one character continues to fight with a fluorescent light bulb protruding from his jugular? Did you like Cube? If you answered yes to any or all of these then The Raid: Redemption is for you. Join us as we review what we got right, what we got wrong, and what we could have never predicted with The Raid.

The Raid 2

This episode is as epic as this movie, an epic crime drama filled with thrilling choreography, stunning directing, and buckets of blood. It's equal parts brutal and beautiful. So grab a baseball bat or a hammer and join us for the Raid 2!

Black Magic 2 Part 2 (Black Magic)

If you thought Black Magic 2 sounded insane, wait until you hear everything that went down in the original. This was not a case where the sequel gets way crazier, both these movies are chock full of weird potions, melting faces, and of course squirting breasts. So eat a big bowl of black magic rice and listen as we break down Black Magic!
