Movie of the Year: 1997

State of the Franchise

Franchises, where would this country be without them? I tremble at a hypothetical so awesome in its utter enormity. I cannot gaze with my mind’s eye long upon the imagined hellscape that is an America Cinema devoid of prequels, sequels, and even squeak -quels. No, do not make me tarry long in these visions. I fear to look, and yet I dare not turn away. What a fool is man. What a liar and fool is every human to ever walk the face of this accursed land.
