With the long-rumored sequel to Top Gun now officially happening, I’m almost happy seeing Maverick returning to duty in his fifties.  While I don’t think that it’s a story that necessarily NEEDS to be told, seeing a young hotshot turned into the very thing in the present that he spent his first movie railing against in the form of Tom Skerritt seems interesting.  Of course, I’m still waiting to find out what happened to the crew of the Palomino on the other side of the titular black hole, leaving to today’s sequential query…

The MS-QOTD (pronounced, as always, “misquoted”)  cautions that, although I am accepting of the Top Gun sequel, I will only watch it if it features Val Kilmer, asks: Since a sequel to EVERYTHING now seems inevitable, which hypothetical part two would you welcome the most?


About Author

Once upon a time, there was a young nerd from the Midwest, who loved Matter-Eater Lad and the McKenzie Brothers... If pop culture were a maze, Matthew would be the Minotaur at its center. Were it a mall, he'd be the Food Court. Were it a parking lot, he’d be the distant Cart Corral where the weird kids gather to smoke, but that’s not important right now... Matthew enjoys body surfing (so long as the bodies are fresh), writing in the third person, and dark-eyed women. Amongst his weaponry are such diverse elements as: Fear! Surprise! Ruthless efficiency! An almost fanatical devotion to pop culture! And a nice red uniform.


  1. Right now, I have to say Power Rangers. I have a whole list of reasons, but my biggest is because I REALLY want to see their spin on the “Green With Evil” storyline. They did a much better job than I was expecting with the movie, so I’m more willing to give a sequel a chance. Plus, you can’t have that mid-credits scene and then NOT make the sequel about Tommy as the evil Green Ranger.

  2. Here’s a left field answer, but what about The Last Starfighter?

    After all, the frontier is down, Xur escaped and there is still danger!

    • I agree Big Trouble in Little China with at the very least Kurt Russell back as Jack and John Carpenter directing.

  3. Although a sequel to The Black Hole would be amazing, it didn’t leave me wanting to explore that cinematic universe further explored as much as Inception.

    I wouldn’t want the sequel to follow Leonardo’s character. I’d love to see more about the actual world in which it took place. We saw a couple of hints but not many. I’m curious about how many other unique inventions are floating out in the world and why corporate espionage is such big business.

  4. +1 for Buckaroo Banzai and +1 for the Last Star Fighter.
    FYI. There is a Last Star Fighter series in the works…

  5. Titanic 2, bigger boat, bigger disaster.

    naturally this one would be all fictional, but i’d rather have that than James Cameron’s Blue People 2 through 4 :|
