I am way too late posting this thing again! But better late than never right?
I missed last year entirely too (maybe I was just too busy watching the sequels to write about them), but I'll be posting a list for this year soon.
You can find the old post from 2016 here, and as for my long overdue impressions on these promising sequels (which btw are not just 6 but 12 - something about how many awesome sequels there were this year):
Ride Along 2
I'd seen this one before I even posted the batch, and my impressions from earlier pretty much still apply. See the review here.
John Wick 2
Does this franchise still hold up to expectations? Hell yeah! The second segment of the series was just as flashy, classy, and tough an interpolation as the first one, and it looks like there's one more on route... at least! I'm looking forward to it. You'll find my review on this one here.
Now You See Me 2
It's got the magic! It's a real show of showmanship and distraction but... it didn't fully measure up to the first. Enter loose ends, too. Worth a watch, but not quite like the original. Review here.
Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon: Sword Of Destiny
Here's one I actually forgot about completely some time after I'd posted this list. I watched it now and... although it didn't compare the classic it wasn't bad. The feels are still there, just not as strong as they used to be.
Check out that review here.
Ice Age: Collision Course
I said this one might have a hard time measuring up to my expectations... and I was right. It didn't. It was still a fun watch, but overall this series just seems to be going downhill after the first one. Or rather getting messier and messier. Too many characters; too little red thread. You can read the review here.
Kung Fu Panda 3
Here's another one I actually hadn't seen before I revisited this old post! A few days later aaand here you go. Fresh impressions. Long (well actually it wasn't that long) story short: it was awesome! I'd forgotten how great the Kung Fu Panda franchise was. Rewatched the prequels while I was at it.
