“I mean “Explosion,” the original, was pretty good,” claimed a disgruntled, unemployed Media and Screen Studies Major, “and you can’t fault them for going for Explosion 2; sequels are always sink or swim. But Explosion 3? And it was still a fake out? At this point, something’s gotta give. Martin Scorsese actually said something really interesting about this phenomenon–”
