2011 Preview: Sequels - Now, More Than Ever by Brandon Gray
(from Box Office Mojo)
This year will see more sequels (including prequels and spin-offs) released than ever before. And the number isn't even complete because, for whatever reason, it doesn't including the new The Thing, which is definitely a prequel (despite what the article says, this has been readily confirmed for yonks).

this week on 100 Films

Just 1 new review was posted to 100 Films in a Year this week, and it was...

Saw VI (2009)
probably the best Saw movie since the first... takes on a political dimension by tackling the thorny issue of American health insurance. It hardly presents a well-considered and in-depth debate, true, but the “evils of the insurance business” angle is a welcome motivation and adds something to both the plot and the denouement.

Also, if you haven't read it already, don't forget the interview with me about 100 Films at The Clapper Bored.

More next Sunday.
