Maybe about the worst thing you could say about a movie back in the day – and especially a successful movie – is that the sequel went straight to video. I always felt that was a slap in the face to the original moviemakers, none of which were generally seen around that kind of production. It still happens: here’s a brief list! Sometimes they go straight to Netflix or some other streaming service too. These are mostly garbage money grabs, cashing in on a popular title after the original creators and cast have moved on. Rarely will you see such a sequel with any of the main stars. Independence Day: Resurgence is an odd duck. While it isn’t a direct-to-blu-ray, it sure as hell feels like it.
