Popcorn Counter: I Am Number Four. Or Five.

We have a theory… Do long series of films only hit their stride after their first three instalments? Join us at the Popcorn Counter this week after our Mad Max marathon as we try to prove or disprove our thesis, using a hefty list of examples. Surely if you rummage around in the IMDB for long enough it’s possible to ‘prove’ anything, isn’t it? We take a whistle stop tour of franchise cinema that includes James Bond, Star Trek, Mission Impossible, Star Wars, the ‘Before’ movies and more. Which of these movies is the best one? Has the power of Godzilla has been diluted over dozens of sequels? And what is the secret to making films with the same actors playing the same characters that improve as the years go by?
