Now that Life-Size 2 is a go, I’ve been thinking A LOT about made-for-tv movies. Like, way more than any person should be thinking about made-for-tv movies. Except for James Franco, I feel like he thinks about shit like that a lot.
While I’m really glad Life-Size 2 is happening, I got to thinking about other made-for-tv movies that I fucking WISH would get a sequel. I think you all know where this is going…plus, you know, the whole title of the blog…
1. James Dean
Going straight back to James Franco! Franco got his big break in the award-winning HBO biopic “James Dean” by playing, you guessed it, James Dean. This was hands down James Franco’s best role and it made me super aroused for him for like two years. I watched that movie a million times and it was a huge hit and Franco won a ton of awards, so I really don’t understand why it can’t get some sort of spin off? I mean, I know James Dean dies at the end, but couldn’t they have done like a Sal Mineo movie and cast Franco as James Dean again or something? Come on HBO. Stop fucking with me like this.
2. It Takes Two
I recently re-watched the cinematic gem and I realized there are a lot of plot holes at the end. Like: so Alyssa and Amanda are just identical strangers, not long lost twins? Seriously? Do they ever do a DNA test to confirm that? Do Kirstie Alley and Steve Guttenberg get married? Do they actually adopt Amanda? Is the adoption process THAT simple? Did Kirstie Alley report the Buttkiss family to social services? I NEED ANSWERS! I’VE BEEN WAITING 22 YEARS!!!
3. Wish Upon a Star
Ok, so when I saw this movie back in the late-90s I effing LOVED IT. It was like the one time in my whole life that I liked Katherine Heigl. I mean, maybe if she did a sequel where she switches place with her sister ONE MORE TIME we could all tolerate her again? I mean, what else does she have going on anyway?
4. Ernest Scared Stupid
Ok, so this is actually my secret all-time favourite movie. And by secret, I mean everyone fucking knows this. I loooooooooove Ernest Scared Stupid, and while my beloved Jim Varney can’t come back as Ernest (RIP), what if the troll came back and those same kids had to save the town again? I mean, I’d watch it. And buy it on Blu-ray. And watch it every night after I finished the first one.
5. Double Double Toil and Trouble
Another Halloween movie (I fucking love Halloween movies) AND another Olsen Twins movie! This movie is legit so lit and I’d love to see Cloris Leachman come back as their bad bitch witch aunt. Break out of that mirror girl! NO WAIT! Maybe in the sequel one of the Olsen twins could be the evil witch twin! (Clearly it would be Mary-Kate).
6. Tower of Terror
I clearly want Steve Guttenberg to happen again. TBH, I want this movie to more so be remade than given a sequel. Like this version was ok, but I have recently finally ridden the Tower of Terror and that shit is TRAUMATIC, so the movie should be way scarier.
7. Death of a Cheerleader
TBH, Tori Spelling could just REALLY use the work before the bank takes her house and 47 million kids.
8. A Muppet Family Christmas
This is my ALLLLLLL-TIME favourite Christmas movie. It has the Muppets! It has the Sesame Street gang! It has Fraggles! Why the fuck can’t we get this sick crew back together again for some more Christmas magic???
Ok, so technically this movie has had three sequels, but I love them and would happily accept one more.
10. The Amy Fisher Story
Amy Fisher is still alive and doing stuff! Drew Barrymore is still alive and acting! Let’s make this happen! I think she did porn a few years back, actually. Amy, not Drew.
