Hollywood movie sequels should have a familiar feel without being too complicated or over the top. There are too many movies that were too gimmick laden and kind of cheesy (although I don’t mind cheese). There are too many movies that try too hard to be so different that you can’t see what the original was even about. Special effects can get in the way. Introducing too many new characters that don’t have a tie into the previous installments can only make things confusing. Storytelling should be the first and foremost concern and everything else is secondary.
