    Looks as if they still used the Scotchbrite trick the first film used – and why not? It worked a treat then and it's cheaper than doing CGI mapping on all the costumes.

    There are few examples of sequels made decades after the orginal was made that work other than "Psycho" movies, and most of the time they come from someone needing money (like Perkins did and that was the only role that anyone would accept him for), or the director has something to say. I'm not saying this is a bad movie (it might be) but I might be more open to it if the director Steven Listberger and Disney should had made it in say 1985 when the idea was more fresh. My fear is that fans of the orginal will be let down by it because of Boxlighter and Bridges being 28 years older won't have much to do in it and they won't have much to do in it.

      I don't know how you could have done the film only three years later and still had the son taking over.In a way, the severe length of time works in its favor– that it has been almost 30 years and that we can see the sheer distances involved, in so many ways, adds a sense of gravity that we don't normally get. It can happen– the Star Trek movies with the original cast showed the age and you could see how people were changing and how time was affecting the characters and the world.It's like Law & Order; it's been on so long that there's now history and back story, and you can call back to episodes that are 15 years old and see changes– something that can easily be lost in a reboot.
