I think the reason people don’t like the sequel is because the first one had a happy ending, and the second one starts by tearing it up. And I’m not saying that’s a bad thing to do; sometimes yes, businesses fail and people are scapegoated for shit they didn’t do and relationships and friendships fall apart. But it’s… Read more
