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.

The Philadelphia Experiment 2

It’s an alternate reality where the Nazis won World War 2, Southern California is a pile of rubble, and time travelers are just trying to get laid. This movie is all great concepts and bad execution. So grab your adamantium hood ornament and join us for the Philadelphia Experiment 2!

The Equalizer 2 Part 2 (The Equalizer)

Imagine if Batman was a retired government agent who faked his own death and now works at Home Depot. And also he’s a psychopath with OCD who hangs out at all night diners reading books and befriending Russian prostitutes. Add in some eye powers and a truly great villain named Teddy and you’ve got this week’s movie. So grab your corkscrew and join us for the Equalizer!

The Equalizer 2

What do a kidnapped girl, a Holocaust survivor, and an inner city youth have in common? What is the best way to kill a douchey dude-bro? Just what kind of soup was that? The answers to these questions and more can be found in this week’s episode. Activate your Lyft app and join us as we discuss The Equalizer 2!

A Christmas Prince: The Royal Wedding Part 2 (A Christmas Prince)

Merry Christmas from Reverse Sequels! Unfortunately you’ve been naughty this year so you are getting the movie version of a lump of coal. Travel to the mythical land of Aldovia by way of New York by way of Chicago where a terrible journalist whose only personality is in her shoes falls in love with a prince who she’s known for about two hours. So grab your hand-whittled acorn hiding royal decree and join us for A Christmas Prince!

A Christmas Prince: The Royal Wedding

This movie has it all: blogs with fantastic titles, a diverse circle of best friends, and sexy nutcrackers. It also raises a lot of questions like: Is Aldovia the white Wakanda? Is this a romantic comedy or political think-piece? And was this movie written by a robot? Kiss your Grundle and join us as we discuss A Christmas Prince: The Royal Wedding.

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?
