Woke Sequels and Reboots Are Insulting Audiences
It's 2023, and there's most likely a new reboot or sequel of a once-cherished movie franchise either in development, in production, or coming to theatres. It's not just because Hollywood lacks ideas; it also needs to piggyback off of successful franchises and their fans to push the latest iteration of the woke agenda. There are too many of these woke reboots/sequels to count and trust me, I've not wasted my time with most of them.
Rumor has it there's a sequel in production of the 1988 comedy film Twins. I remember really enjoying the first film as a kid, and a sequel has reportedly been in development hell for decades. That's where it belonged. In addition to being completely unnecessary, Arnold Schwarzenegger was trying to recruit Eddie Murphy to play the long-lost third brother… because that makes sense. Eddie Murphy is no longer associated with the project, and Tracey Morgan is taking his place.
Curiosity won't be enough to get me to watch it.
